Try and picture the most-dreamy Italian wedding in Tuscany that you can imagine…

You will probably envisage an intimate, atmospheric ceremony held within a tiny old chapel in a traditional Italian village, followed by a fairytale castle wedding reception overlooking the rolling Tuscan countryside, the warm summer sun setting behind the vineyards and the hills sitting in the distance whilst you and your guests sip champagne and cocktails on the impressive outdoor terrace. Sounds like destination wedding heaven doesn’t it?!

 

Well that’s exactly the delightful kind of day that today’s bride and groom enjoyed. Marissa and Phil had a dreamy castle wedding in Italy. They held their wedding reception within a restored 9th century castle in Tuscany, set high upon the Chianti hills, watching over the medieval village and the river beyond. Their tremendously talented wedding planner – Weddings In Italy – perfectly complimented the location with a theme that focussed on natural beauty, delicate details and pretty pale pinks, whilst the ambience of the day was captured faultlessly by the gifted, fine art photographer Jessica Burke.

Real Wedding – Picture Perfect Piacenza

You Mean The World To Me

Chiara & Ivan   ♥   Piacenza, Italy

You Mean The World To Me

Today’s real wedding took place in picturesque Piacenza, just 60 kilometres outside the metropolitan city of Milano, Italy. Chiara and Ivan said ‘I do’ in the most quaint and romantic little church we’ve seen, set within the Torreforenllo estate. 

 

Their guests were treated to a typically Italian soiree. A long welcoming table – overlooking lush vineyards and the rolling hills and valleys beyond – took centre stage for the reception, until night fall when the wedding party kicked off their shoes and danced under the stars.

 

This chic countryside wedding oozes with personality and was the casual, intimate affair that Chiara and Ivan hoped for…and more.

Chiara says:

“Two years ago, during a wine tasting in the Piacenza hillside area, we visited a friend’s vineyard, Torrefornello, and we fell in love with the amazing landscape and the whole location. We wanted to share our wedding with our closest relatives and dearest friends. We very quickly reached 64 people, but this is still very few people for an Italian ceremony!”
