Incredible Val d’Orcia wedding venue

I am happy to share this delightful garden wedding that takes place at one of the finest Val d’Orcia wedding venues – La Foce. If you desire an outdoor wedding in elegant surroundings this might just be your dream location!

Why should we have a Val d’Orcia wedding?

Well that’s easy to answer:

  • The Val d’Orcia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Countryside and views to die for.
  • It’s a place to rest and enjoy complete tranquility.
  • You can easily visit famous towns like Pienza, Montepulciano, San Quirico, Bagno Vignoni and Montalcino.
  • It’s Tuscany – Some of the best food and wine around!

I start the day at the gorgeous location taking some photos of the villa. My clients have come from all over the world and I want to make sure they have photos to remember just how beautiful it is. Next I work with the stationery and details. I love the gentle tones of pinks and peaches.

Once I finish my detail shots I find the men getting ready downstairs. I follow them while they finish their preparations. There is a lot of camaraderie between the group and everyone is immensely excited. The father of the bride is also with us as he know it’s best to leave the ladies alone while they are getting ready!

Once the men are ready they start to welcome the guests that are arriving and I head upstairs to find the ladies. I leave the bride and her sister to work through the last steps of the bridal preparations and make sure that everything is just perfect. The dress is quite stunning and fits our petite bride sublimely.

The wedding ceremony is lovely. A large floral arch and two compositions decorate the gardens and the ceremony is accompanied by a grand piano and strings. Short readings from family add intimacy and relevancy to this important moment.

Finally to conclude the ceremony, they have a kiss and exit to a long shower of petals and cheers. Next, the guests move to the Limonaia for the drinks reception. Meanwhile, we take a few family photos before everyone disperses to have fun!

Reception and Party in the Limonaia.

Inside the Limonaia a great Cuban band plays as waiters provide drinks and canapes to all the guests.

The dinner reception takes place at the back of the villa. This venue does not offer an indoor alternative for dining for a large amount of guests so it is always best to be safe and have a marquee.

The dinner flows on into the night and heartfelt speeches provide entertainment. After dinner, we all move to the Limonaia where the wedding cake is cut with sparklers and they open an enormous bottle of champagne.

The party starts immediately and is driven by many many cocktails! The music gets everyone on the dance floor and the celebrations continue late into the night.

If you prefer a location with an impressive Italian Garden a bit closer to Florence then have a look at this sophisticated wedding venue.
