Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco wedding

Lovely sunset portait after Castiglion del Bosco wedding

This is actually a 3 day Castiglion del Bosco wedding celebration. I am posting the main wedding day first but you can scroll down and see the Day 1 BBQ Party and the Day 2 Rehearsal dinner in the Members Cantina.

Castiglion del Bosco is now owned by Rosewood and is a very exclusive resort in the hills of Montalcino. The venue is chosen by the couple to celebrate their wedding with just family and close friends.

The wedding day is very relaxed and the bride and groom get ready in one of the Villas in the countryside. The groom has some help from his brother while the bride is with her mum and sister.

Once the bride is ready an emotional dad arrives to see his princess and escort her to the lovely chapel of the resort. But first, I photograph the couple’s first look. They have decided to see each other before the chapel as they want to be able to spend a few minutes together to enjoy the emotion of that special moment. After, we head to the ceremony where a lovely country decor of olive greenery, roses and candles marks the entrance to the church. On completing the ceremony, they exit the church to petals and cheers.

The olive arch outside the church becomes the backdrop for some family photos and then they enjoy an aperitif on the restaurant terrace which has lovely views of the valley.

While the guests enjoy some drinks and canapes we head to the golf course for some sunset couple shots. Back to the reception, I photograph the lavish table full of crystal candelabras, candles and roses.

The bride has Italian roots and some traditional Italian desserts like tiramisu are served together with the wedding cake. The day ends with the first dance, father and daughter dance and party. A very memorable 3 day Castiglion del Bosco wedding!

Images from Day 1 – BBQ Party Castiglion del Bosco

Everyone arrives at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco for the wedding weekend. There is a nice informal welcome dinner at a restaurant in the heart of Castiglion del Bosco. A simple country decor with white flowers and tender greens enhance the charm of the place. Everyone enjoys some lovely barbequed food.

Before the dinner starts, I grab some romantic shots with the couple and we conclude the evening with a couple of portraits at night.

The day before the wedding, an elegant dinner takes place in the Castiglion del Bosco Members’ Cantina. A very contemporary decor with just glass vases and candles complements the look of the cantina and creates an elegant atmosphere. The couple is elegantly dressed for the occasion, a few casual shots of people enjoying their evening and of course, we are in a cantina so a shot of the couple surrounded by barrels of delicious Brunello di Montalcino wine is mandatory to end this Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco rehearsal dinner.
