Relais La Costa is one of the most elegant luxury farmhouses I’ve ever seen in Tuscany. It is located in Monteriggioni, near Siena and a few minutes by car from Florence. It is an old Tuscan style village renovated to perfection, with the main features that make it so charming left unaltered. It setting of on several levels, with small cottages, a terrace, and a rooftop pool.
The spouses got ready in the villas of the property. The bride has experienced the most exciting moments before the ceremony along with her maid of honour and the flower girl. The groom instead with his groomsmen.
The ceremony was held in the beautiful church of Colle Ciupi, not far from the Relais. The church is very small, in rustic Tuscan style, completely painted on the walls by Duccio di Boninsegna’s students. The photographs do not do justice to the majesty of the paintings.
After the function, while the guests who have come from New York enjoyed sipping cocktails on the roof terrace, I took advantage of the spouses to snap some wedding photographs in the surrounding area. Special guest a beautiful vintage Bentley in the background, along with the stunning landscape of Tuscany, for their wedding images. The Tuscan countryside offers everything you need to make intense portraits. No special effect needed: I just let the smiling couple of lovers take a walk. Although the day was really hot, the shade offered a bit of shelter. And it was nice to spend some time with the newlyweds still excited from the ceremony.
After the aperitif, the party continued. A delicious dinner was waiting for the bride and groom and their guests. The setting of the talented Barbara from Four Nineteen Weddings have made the atmosphere romantic and exciting. The excellent local wine and the desire to party have warmed the hearts of those present. Here for you some pictures!
