Exploring Tuscany and its little hamlets is a privilege everybody should treat themselves with once in their lives. But when it’s about planning a wedding, then we can say it’s almost a duty that’s not right to back out of.
If you’re searching for the perfect location for your wedding, you’ll have a wide choice. If we can dare to make a suggestion, among all the towns sheltered on the Tuscan hills, Certaldo needs a particular notice. Be guided by an expert photographer to discover the best Certaldo Weddings!
This delicious hamlet has Roman Etruscan origins and it’s full of buildings and structures that will literally leave you enchanted: just think about the two main churches, that of Saints Jacopo and Filippo, or the Chiesa di San Tommaso, not to mention the beautiful Palazzo Pretorio.
Whether you’re thinking about a wedding with religious or civil ceremony, you cannot be mistaken in Certaldo. Whenever you turn your glance to, the town offers unimaginable cues and right in the neighborhood, a few steps out of the walls, there’s a panorama among the most beautiful of the whole Tuscany.
In fact, after a few shots in Certaldo, make sure your photographer will take you to the close fields for a really romantic and uncommon service. Valdelsa, full of mild hills and cypresses, will be the perfect setting for your wedding pictures.
Be enchanted by the secular quietness of these areas, where the Florence of the Renaissance is just a few minutes far by car, but your eyes won’t see anything but mild nature and sheltered hamlets.

Those who chose July for a honeymoon or an engagement […]

Whether they are Romanesque, Baroque or modern, most of them are ideal for moving and touching ceremonies, in a setting full of charm and history. The same cannot be said for civil ceremonies. The rite of the civil wedding is short, cold and unexciting. The setting where it takes place, which usually is the town hall, is unattractive. Who doesn’t dream a civil wedding […]
