We always talk about what to look for in an ideal venue, the decor to die for or why you should opt for one hot wedding dress over another similarly beautiful one. This time we want to focus on our fave destination for your nuptials. We are all about Tuscany for the best ceremony backdrop ever. Here are our 5 reasons to tie the knot in Tuscany, land of art, culture and love. It really is one of the most romantic, dreamy regions to say ‘I do’ in.
1. Its great beauty
The first reason to get married in Tuscany is that it’s one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding. With its sun kissed green hills, winding rivers and clear blue skies, your big day couldn’t have a better setting. Among the most famous location of all stands Villa La Palagina: in the village of Figline Valdarno, surrounded by olive trees and Chianti producing vineyards within a huge natural park. It’s an absolute dream of a majestic eighteenth century mansion!
Just a few kilometers from the beautiful Florence, Villa La Palagina manages to fuse the traditional with the modern, carrying an elegant but contemporary feel. It offers large dining rooms perfectly suited to winter weddings, as well as lush gardens where you can soak up the Tuscan sun come summer. Large pools are also available for guests and give that touch of sheer decadence and class that adds some serious wow factor.
As for the food, Villa La Palagina is a real gem, with a restaurant whose mission is to show you only the very best of Tuscan and Italian cuisine. The chef Federico Ciardi and all the staff, will make your wedding menu ecstasy for all five senses! You will have the chance to work with them to create the bespoke menu catering to your every wish.
We at Zankyou know how complicated it can be to organise a wedding. Fortunately, the staff at Villa La Palagina will really ease the load by helping you along every step of the way to create the big day of your dreams. In addition, they can assist non-Italians in tackling the necessary paperwork, offering a translation and interpretation service to make it all far less stressful! In short, everything is at hand to ensure the Tuscan scenery, this perfect venue and your dream day come together beautifully.
2. The art and culture
We have fallen hard for the Tuscan art and culture. Let’s face it the biggest names in art are Tuscan. From Dante and Collodi through to Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci, Tuscan blood coarsed through their veins. To be in Tuscany is to touch an ancient world. Just imagine your wedding photos on the streets of Florence, or a remote picturesque hillside village.
3. The culinary delights
In Tuscany they don’t just eat with their mouths, but with every sense. You’ll find an explosion of flavours, aromas, scents, shades: which is real ecstasy for body and soul. Whether you are a meat lover, or more likely to choose the fish or vegetarian dishes, Tuscan cuisine will satisfy your every desire. Innovation and tradition will combine to make the food at your wedding totally flawless.
4. The weather
Just by mentioning walking down the aisle “under the Tuscan sun” our heart skips a beat and wanderlust kicks in. It’s the ideal wedding location all year round – especially for a spring or summer wedding and the winter weather isn’t particularly chilly either, which is always a bonus. Whether you choose a city venue, beside the sea or in the hills, this place has it all!
5. The nature
The Tuscan countryside sets the dreamiest scene for your big day. Think rolling hills, lemon trees, olive groves, mountains, rivers and the sea, all bathed in sunshine. Everything you want from a destination wedding, sheer beauty to make your big day that bit extra special.
Have you already imagined soaking up the Tuscan sun on your big day? It didn’t take much to fuel the fantasy of our big day in Villa La Palagina. So are you up for celebrating your love in one of the most beautiful regions of Italy? We’d definitely say yes!
