International Wedding at Castello di Vincigliata

19 January 2017

Of all the wedding venues in Florence, the Castello di Vincigliata is undoubtedly the most scenic. Perched on a hill near Fiesole, the castle offers newlyweds and guests a breathtaking view, areas set up for every part of the ceremony and the wedding reception, an atmosphere that is not easily forgotten.

Today’s couple has organised the wedding right here. The spouses got ready in Villa Fiesole, an elegant hotel at a short distance from the castle. The ceremony took place inside the cloister. The bride and groom exchanged vows and wedding rings under an arch of flowers, in front of their excited guests.

I  took the traditional photographs with families and couple portraits inside the castle property. Although the scenery in the surrounding area is lovely, the venue offers many beautiful spots, perfect for wedding photos. The groom had also hired a Fiat Cinquecento, thanks to which I could take some funny pictures.

The first part of the wedding reception was held on the magnificent terrace with a view. While I took photos of them, the guests were relaxing with canapés and champagne. Dinner instead took place inside the castle, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, before the couple and friends let loose to the rhythm of the DJ. A heartfelt thank you to Ilaria, the wedding planner of this gorgeous marriage. Here are some images.
