Italian treats

For their wedding they chose Tuscany and its special country atmosphere: gentle rolling hills, medieval villages perched among the vineyards, delicious food and excellent wines. They booked a local country house over Chianti hills close to San Gimignano.

The bride prepares

The civil ceremony took place in the courtyard of Palazzo Pretorio in Certaldo, a medieval village that preserve original buildings dating back the XI century.  The walls of the courtyard are decorated with the coats of arms of the nobles families that ruled the municipality in the medieval time. It is a unique background: the town hall of Certaldo is one of the most beautiful venues for an outdoor civil ceremony in Tuscany.

Sophie looked amazing in her stunning dress. It was a fitted lace style with narrow straps, a contrasting bow at the back, and a long train.  Sophie wanted to give her wedding a garden style touch. The bridal bouquet was made of pale pink roses, lysianthus and a touch bright camomile and lavender.
