The most classic wedding in Florence could not exist without the beauty of the Vincigliata Castle as a venue.
Built entirely of stone, the castle is located in Fiesole, in a panoramic position, surrounded by olive groves and lush wild countryside. After seeing it, this couple decided to receive their guests here on the occasion of the wedding reception. But let’s take a step back.
They got ready, together with their families and friends, at the Fattoria Il Milione, entirely occupied by the wedding guests. They met in the centre of Florence for the Catholic ceremony that was celebrated in the ancient Church of All Saints. A rich, opulent church and a stone’s throw from the River Arno and the sights of the Tuscan city.
I took their pictures right there, among the artistic beauties of the historic centre. After a few photos in Piazzale Michelangelo, with a view of the city in the background, the couple reached their friends and family at the Vincigliata Castle. The first part of the wedding reception was held in the rooftop garden. As soon as the sky began to be tinged with blue, the meal started in the courtyard, by candlelight.
Few places can offer the beauty and charm of the Castle of Vincigliata. Florence, I hope to come back soon!
