Vineyard Wedding in Tuscany

Jessica & Samit live in London, England and decided to have a dream destination wedding at an ancient Italian vineyard in Tuscany. They hoped their wedding day would be "elegant, romantic and fun" and it was just that (although I'd also add: gorgeous, dreamy and delicious to that list). 

Most of the guests stayed nearby in Florence and were chartered in on the morning of the wedding. The close family and bridal party stayed on the grounds in a villa for a few nights prior to the wedding, enjoying the Tuscan countryside by drinking local wine, eating local cheeses and meats and of course, lots of pizza! Ryan and I were thrilled to join the festivities, meeting the group after a few weeks of travelling through Northern Croatia, Florence and Venice. 

The original plan was for an outdoor ceremony on the roof terrace but some morning rain changed the plans so we moved indoors into a gorgeous library instead. Every stage of the wedding was in a separate area on the incredible grounds and guests were treated to an entirely new experience for every event. Welcome beverages in the courtyard, ceremony in a hidden library which brought everyone through a fresco'd hallway that opened out onto a magnificent elevated garden enjoying most spectacular views of Tuscany and its iconic Cypress trees. Actually, I believe that "dreamy" is an understatement.
