A Chic Tuscan Wedding.
Nikki and James celebrated their Italian civil wedding at Certaldo, followed by a blessing and wedding reception at the stunning Villa Paterno, in the heart of Chiantishire, Tuscany. Their wedding was planned by the fabulous Ilaria of Glam Events and wedding photography shot by the talented Facibeni Fotografia
Number of Guests: 60
Nearest Airport: Peretola, Pisa
Nikki and James chose to have a pretty civil ceremony two days prior to their actual wedding reception. This took place at the Certaldo Town Hall in its beautiful medieval cloister, and was followed by an intimate meal with their families at a classic Tuscan restaurant, which boasts wonderful Tuscan food and breathtaking views.
Wedding Blessing and Reception
They had a beautiful blessing followed by a reception in one of the most stunning Tuscan Villas, the Antica Fattoria di Paterno.
Shabby-chic decor: White details (frames, candle holders, tablecloths, all in a vintage style and white colour) and lots of soft pink, white milk and delicate peonies and roses added a fairytale mood to the venue that was already full of flowers and antique details.
Nikki & James’ Highlights
The food was really amazing, the caterer selected thanks to our planner, Ilaria from Glam Events in Tuscany was so tasteful that our guests continue to say that they had never eaten so well at a wedding…
Facibeni Fotografia were really great in capturing all the beautiful emotions of that day
Our wedding planner, Ilaria, was really really helpful and guaranteed us the best destination wedding we could ever have imagined. I’ve lost count of the number of guests who said it was the most perfect wedding they’ve ever attended! We always knew we wanted to get married in Italy and so contacted a number of wedding planners. Ilaria was the very first person to respond to us and we were so excited as she could pretty much organise anything we wanted – the flexibility and the number of options she offered was fantastic.
Our venue was just perfect – we were absolutely blown away and so were our guests, it was so magical.
Ilaria did so much more for us than simply organise the big day…from the accommodation for our guests, our civil ceremony and legal paperwork and the pizza chef the night before the wedding!
