Borgo Santo Pietro is a luxury resort located in southern Tuscany, among rolling hills and endless fields of sunflowers, lost in the countryside, a stone’s throw from the famous Abbey of San Galgano. The heart of the venue is the main old villa, which houses the restaurant and the reception, plus a few rooms for the guests. All around, the prettiest and most Tuscan villas ever, along roads with gravel and perfectly-shaped cypress trees. Borgo Santo Pietro is the quintessence of Tuscany indeed; you won’t find any other venues so well designed and styled. Thanks to the pool, the endless gardens, and its great features – including a renowned restaurant – it is the best spot to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Tuscany. Or a symbolic celebration, if you’re crazy in love. Like these lovebirds of New York that had decided to flee here on a warm autumn day.
For their elopement in Tuscany, the groom waited for the bride out of her room, as she wants to be seen for the first time in all of her glory. Later on, we had a great time strolling through the property and taking their wedding photos in the most attractive spots. Borgo Santo Pietro provides the best features for wedding photographers, especially in the late afternoon, in the warm light of the Tuscan sunsets. I portrayed the newlyweds along pretty paths, surrounded by bushes with colourful flowers and roses. Surprisingly, every sight, every old gate, every stone used to build this charming village speaks about Tuscany, of the flow of the seasons in an ethereal charm that envelops everything.
I greeted the newlyweds after sunset, just before they sat down for dinner, finally alone to toast each other. I hope to meet them again soon, maybe at Borgo Santo Pietro, or perhaps in New York, their homeland. Anyway, I will never forget their elopement in Tuscany for sure!
