Conti di San Bonifacio is undoubtedly one of the most attractive wedding venues of Tuscany. You never stop wondering! When I thought I had seen the nicest places there, here comes the chance to work in this incredible estate in the Maremma. This Conti di San Bonifacio Wedding is worth to be told! But first things first.
Conti di San Bonifacio is a wine resort located in Gavorrano, in the province of Grosseto. The area is the wildest and unspoilt of Tuscany: the paradise of every photographer. Fields in bloom and orderly vineyards accompany me along the journey on deserted roads. A gate out of nowhere welcomes me; the road begins to climb and, at last, I am in front of the impressive facade of the structure. A large arched wooden door is before my eyes. Above it, the skeleton of the head of a buffalo. I am suddenly aware that one of the strengths of the Conti di San Bonifacio is the position. The resort is located on top of a hill; you can enjoy the view from all angles and rooms.
The resort is an ancient building with stone walls, renovated with luxury amenities. There are only seven rooms, including one suite, furnished with rustic yet luxurious style. The common areas are lovely: living rooms with antique leather sofas and exclusive items of furniture; large arched windows that separate the inside from the garden and the pool. Above it, the ivy offers shade on hot summer days; comfortable chaise longue sent me to rest, maybe while sipping a cocktail or reading a book.
A large garden surrounds the resort, in the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside.
Also enchanted by this beauty, Alessia B contacted me to realise this inspirational photo shoot. Alessia is an amazing wedding planner, one of the best in Tuscany. Her enthusiasm got me involved in this exciting project. I was looking forward to working with her and with this fantastic team of professionals she had hired. Catalina and Lorenzo were our models. Both professionals and happily engaged, they allowed me to photograph them in the most beautiful places of the resort. A few photos while getting ready into the suite, some portraits in front of the facade and in the garden and, finally, a walk along the road leading to the resort, surrounded by cypress trees.
As seen from the photos, Conti di San Bonifacio is the perfect place to organise any wedding.
Stiatti Fiori has made the great bouquet and floral arrangements. Spontaneous compositions in pastel colours, including shades of pink and cream. Ivy and powder pink feathers have extolled the viewpoint chosen for the ceremony.
The Tuscan style has been modernly reinterpreted. A delicate and present common thread tied all the floral elements: the bridal flower crown, her bouquet, the setting up of the candy table, the cake itself. A real wonder!
Catalina was wearing a dress chosen at the atelier Il Barone Rosso in Montecatini Terme. A luxurious and elegant dress, suitable for Catalina’s thin and tall body and the location.
A long and lightweight dress in silk embellished with a jewel detail on the belt. The movement of the skirt, the bare back and the ease of the tailoring cut made Catalina a perfect bride, beautiful and natural. Lara Navarrini, from Florence, created the beautiful makeup and hairstyle. Lorenzo wore a classic suit by Montezemolo Firenze: a blue suit with a lightly damasked tone-on-tone texture, a touch of originality for an elegant and sophisticated effect, white shirt and blue night bow tie. Lorenzo has been a young and contemporary groom, spontaneous and refined. Sara from Pratesi Designer made invitations and stationery in style. Her talent has followed the mood of the day, imprinting it on paper. A stylish and pure coordinated stationery, of British inspiration. Pastel shades and romantic bohemian flowers for the invitations, the escort cards and menus.
What about this location? In addition to weddings, Conti di San Bonifacio is an ideal place for a relaxing honeymoon or wedding anniversaries. Staff organize various activities for guests, such as relaxing massages, cooking classes and tastings of Italian wine.
