If I say Montalcino, you can’t help but think about wine. It couldn’t be otherwise! In this area is produced one of the most famous wines in the world: the Brunello. Just a few people know that actually the area around Montalcino is one of the most impressive of Tuscany, surrounded by the legendary sceneries of the Val d’Orcia and fabulous towns such as Pienza and San Quirico. Every year, thousands of visitors come here from all over the world, to hike or cycle along the dirt roads that cross this land under the warm Italian sun.
Val d’Orcia is an excellent destination for elopements and weddings as well, thanks to the numerous farmhouses and a few but excellent vendors. In this scenario, perched on a hill and surrounded by the view, stands the Castello di Velona. The castle is a small luxury hotel, equipped with numerous suites and rooms with terraces with a view. The castle is built almost entirely with local materials; a natural and romantic venue, ideal also for any honeymoon. Right here, together with a few selected vendors, I’ve shot this little elopement inspiration.
The idea was to recreate an elopement at Castello di Velona, one of the most exclusive boutique hotels in Tuscany. The expertise and skills of the other vendors made creating photographs very easy, enhanced by the beauty of the models. The lovebirds spent some time relaxing by the pool, between a dip and a few glasses of Brunello. Dismissed the swimwear, they wore their wedding outfits: he, very elegant in his black tuxedo; she fabulous in a stunning blush-coloured dress by Blumarine. Just some shots with a lovely vintage Fiat Cinquecento, and it was time to exchange vows and rings at dusk. Next, a superb dinner with a view, set up by the talented Elena of Il Giardino Delle Fate. A hectic day! This couple couldn’t help but enjoy this legendary resort on the hilltop of the Val d’Orcia. I hope to see you soon for an elopement at Castello di Velona!
