Tuscany Wedding in Chianti: The Venue

The Tuscany wedding of this lovely couple from Australia was set up at Villa Salvadonica.
It is a sort of Tuscan Borgo: this Venue has been recently restored and nowadays is the ideal Wedding Venue for a long weekend with friends.

Last but not at least. the venue has a strategic position and it is so close to Antinori cellar.

The venue boasts a panoramic pool.

Here we have organized the aperitivo of the wedding day.
The tiled area nearby the Hall has been the spot for the dinner alfresco.
Our trusted lightman has set up a sky of fairy lights up on the tables:

too magic!

Tuscany Wedding in Chianti: The Ceremony

One of the highlight of the Venue is: the street between cypresses.
We have designed the ceremony to be set up between cypresses.

Unfortunately the weather was uncertain on the day.
For this reason we decided to organize the ceremony in a separate venue.
We have selected together a medieval castle.The Venue of the ceremony is located just 7 km far from the Villa Salvadonica.

Tuscany Wedding in Chianti: The Style

First of all we have to said that this Tuscany wedding in Chianti was inspired to the countryside.
Importantly to the strong colors of burgundy and orange.


The bride preferred wild flowers.
Definitely more botanical touch than pastel colors and peonies.
We have loved the colorful bouquet for the bride.
