Intimate Vineyard Elopement

I am excited to share with you this intimate vineyard elopement at a beautiful winery near Montalcino in Tuscany. This particular venue is a converted castle offering beautiful accommodation and fine dining in the heart of one of the world’s most famous wineries.

The dramatic architecture and manicured vineyards that surround the property are lovely backdrops for weddings, and of course elopements and vow renewals too! Here you can see a larger wedding at the same venue.

This refined location offers elegant interiors and stylish and luxurious accommodation for your stay in one of the most famous wine producing areas of Tuscany. The venue also offers various dining experiences and services to make your stay even more memorable.

A fantastic location for a unique experience.

In this simple but elegant vineyard elopement the focus is of course on the wonderful surroundings, the castle and the vineyards. The day starts with some photos of their getting ready. They prepare separately and decide to see each other for the first time at the ceremony.

This, is of course the traditional approach but if you prefer to see each other beforehand then we can do a “first look”, and you can then enter the ceremony together. Both are now popular and we can discuss in detail and figure out the best solution for you individual needs!

Emotional Ceremony Overlooking The Gorgeous Countryside

A wonderful and emotional ceremony takes place on the lower lawn. With a backdrop of rolling hills, cypress tress and olive groves this is a lovely backdrop for an intimate and very personal vineyard elopement.

After the ceremony they sign a lovely parchment paper certificate with intricate gold leaf bordering and they also enjoy a fresh glass of prosecco to celebrate the moment.

Romantic Photo Session around the grounds

There are many lovely places to take photos and we don’t need to travel far. I personally like to get some images with the vineyards and the castle in the background as I think they represent very well the venue and type of location.

The light at sunset is wonderful and very suitable for some great images in the vineyards and gardens.

Romantic Candlelit Dinner to conclude a lovely vineyard elopement

To conclude the day they have arranged for a private and romantic meal for two in the courtyard. They have some lovely flowers and candles to add to the atmosphere and these are in the same theme as the flowers for the ceremony so it ties together well with their theme and color palettes.
