Tuscany Wedding Venues
Being a Tuscany Wedding Photographer makes me one of the luckiest wedding photographers. Tuscany is world renowned for its beauty, rolling tuscan hills and tree lines, golden sun and much much more. This exquisite Italian region is home to the most beautiful and romantic wedding venues not only in Italy but the world. Wether your looking to have a luxury private villa in the Chianti Valley or your going all out for an exclusive and glamours estate. You could dream to marry in a Tuscan Castle or retreat to a distant vineyard. With so many Italy Wedding Locations to choose from it can be really difficult. If you have decided on Tuscany then you’re in luck! Planning a wedding in Italy becomes a little less stressful when you know its going to be in one of the most beautiful regions in the country.
There really is so much on offer and must make your decision making a chore when trying to find something perfect with so many Tuscany Wedding Venues to consider. Not forgetting the cities of Florence or Siena too.
The venues in the Florence region consist mostly of hilltop castles. If you are looking for large venues to host your wedding that is practical for also accommodating your guests. You’re in luck as some venues can allow a few hundred people! With the Renaissance City Florence being such a huge tourist attraction you and your guests will not be short of things to do before and after the wedding.
Chianti and Siena
If you’re really looking for an authentic and organic Italian and Tuscan wedding experience then Chianti and Siena will make your dreams come true. From towering Cypresses to ancient stone farmhouses. Vineyards as far as the eye can see and fields of poppies. Is this painting a picture yet?
Beautiful towns such as Castellina with olive groves and Forrests. Places like this allow for much more than your standard wedding experience. Siena is home to one of Italys greatest Gothic Cathedrals which is surrounded by many beautiful churches and wedding venues for you to choose from too.
Why Marry In Tuscany?
There is no doubt that one of the main reasons anyone will choose Tuscany for the location of their wedding is the landscapes the region has to offer. Places like maremma often get overlooked but with deep Etruscan history its the perfect place for your dream wedding. The beautiful landscapes here make me really love being a destination wedding photographer. Getting to take photos in these locations is something I never take for granted.
Italy is hugely saturated in history and this level of history can really add to the character of your wedding. For example there are plenty of Roman amphitheaters and traditional Italian theatres in Tuscany and you can host your weddings here.
I’m not sure I even have to write anything here. Though to take it a little further than pasta and pizza. Traditional Tuscan food can take things to the next level for your wedding breakfast. Almost all wedding venues and caterers in Tuscany will source thier produce locally and the Italian Chefs here will be sure to create something spectacular to celebrate your big day.
Vineyards and Wine
If you love wine you could always plan a visit to a Tuscan winery such as Antinori Chianti Classico or Castello Di Ama. The thing is even if you’re not that into wine but still enjoy it, wether you like it or not your going to end up with some amazing wine. Don’t like wine at all? Then you can still make use of the vineyards as far as the eye can see to incorporate it into your wedding photography.
Things To Do
Obviously when it comes to your wedding its all about the big day for sure. However you can make your wedding the trip of a lifetime for both yourselves and your wedding guests by getting involved with things to do in Tuscany. Take a tour in Florence or take a scooter through the countryside. Get your hands right in there with an Italian cooking class or go wine tasting. Being an Italy Wedding Photographer I love spending time before and after my destination weddings soaking up the culture!
