Tuscany Village wedding

Have you ever dreamt about your wedding in a Tuscan village surrounded by family and friends, then your dream can come true.  A ‘hotel’ that is a Tuscan village.  I had the joy of being at/experiencing Il Barro this time last year and it was amazing.  There is a chapel or you can do an outdoor ceremony and lots of lovely spaces for cocktails, dinner/dancing both indoor and outdoor.  In April the Wisteria tunnels around the property are in full bloom and just add to the romance. This property was a village and Ferruccio Ferragamo/family brought it and turned it into a Relais & Chateaux 5* resort, pretty awesome!!

So you don’t want that many to come with you, lol, an intimate group is still going to feel like they own the resort because it is so spread out.  And, if its just the two of you, then we will ensure you feel like you eloped to your dream and we take care of everything.

There are two pool areas, the one above is the modern/food&beverage close location, very nice, the other is down a flight of steps and just seems to be sitting in the Tuscan countryside, very peaceful and quiet.

 

The picture above is the awesome driveway lined by cypress trees, you feel very special when those gates open and in you go

Lots of unique areas, here is the formal garden area of the villa/estate!!

Let me help you make your Tuscan dreams come true and my travel partner will handle all the air/accommodation (guests can stay elsewhere and come in for the wedding) and any transport needed and some wonderful Tuscan excursions, so you and the guests get the full under the Tuscan sun experience.  Yeeeeeessssssssssssss

Till next time

Venice Italy wedding

So fortunate that this was my 5th time to Venice.  You can never say you know it inside and out because there are so many areas and alleys and places to get lost in, but from a standpoint of lovely resorts and incredible excursions for your guests to do to make this destination wedding even more magical, yep, it’s all there.

This trip happened to be just about this time last year, so if it was now it would not be happening.  Have plans to be back later in the year, but due to coronavirus we will see.  My US bestie was having a special birthday and my birthday is 5 days after hers, so after a few days toddling around Tuscany doing things we had not done before together there, off to Venice by train we went, nice and easy, and then into our water taxi on the way to the Hotel Danielli where we had a waterfront view room that was just incredible.  We sat on our balcony that really wasn’t a balcony drinking mini bar champagne, yes that is how caught up in the moment we were, lol, and from our standpoint we were giving people joy walking by that saw two lovely ladies living their best lives.  lol

For the first time ever I walked across the bridge of Sighs, amazing!!

So many beautiful ornate hotels and restaurants for wedding celebrations here, let me help you pull yours together, and my travel partner will handle yours and the guests’ air/accommodation/transport and those excursions i mentioned earlier.  When the wedding is over everyone will go their own way to live their best lives in Europe before heading home, and will thank you for the experience they had.  Sooo good.

Till next time

Tuscany

Aaaah lovely Tuscany, I was supposed to be there with you right now, my 6th time, but Coronavirus has kept me here in S CA at home (which is still a lovely place to be), don’t worry if not later this year that is supposed to also happen, for sure this time next year, I am on the Wisteria spring tour and to celebrate mine and my US besties birthday, she lives there now.  So between my friend (in the wedding biz) her husband that runs a farmhouse/villa property where you can have your wedding/all guests stay, and he does excellent tours of the area, or your honeymoon or vacation, you are in great hands with us as we know the area inside out.  Above is a lovely hotel that has thermal hot pools there which are awesome to enjoy and it’s part of a village that has other accommodations/restaurants and is just lovely and you feel so relaxed, but the hotel has great space/views for a wedding ceremony and reception for sure, as well as the farmhouse property which i have posted on before, so let’s do this!!

And with my travel partner who can handle the guests air/hotel/transport and any group excursions we may want to do, planning your Tuscany wedding is easy with us all on board.

Till next time

Bellagio/Lake Como Wedding

I had heard that Bellagio in Las Vegas was  built based on a village in Italy, and it wasn’t until I was heading to Lake Como and someone mentioned Bellagio to me, take the boat over they said, well we had a car and i thought we would drive and spend the night, but my husband said no, lets do the boat.  So we did, we both regretted it, the boat right was excellent, seeing all the views around the lake on the way, but once we saw Bellagio we knew it was a place we would have loved to stay at, so next trip we will.

Perfect for a destination wedding, lots of different accommodations to match guests style/budget, a lovely resort lake front where you could have a lovely wedding event, walk down the road to the Botanical Gardens and have pics there, and then have pics through out Bellagio on your way back to the hotel, where the guests have been having cocktails looking at the lake view and pinching themselves that they are there drinking champagne and that is Lake Como and they are at the real Bellagio, not a duplicate!!

I can help you plan the wedding and my travel partner can handle everyone’s air/hotel/transport, and any pre/post group excursions we want to do!!

Till next time

Capri

Chic chic chic.  That’s Capri, been twice and will go back again.  From fancy dancy luxury hotels to beach side hole in the wall hotels, you can find it all here and all over the island can find great restaurants/views to enjoy and pretend you came off one of the mega yachts that are always in the bays around.

Let me help you plan your Capri wedding and my travel partner will handle all the guests flight/hotel/transport needs and some group excursions for pre/post wedding, before everyone heads in different directions to explore Italy/Europe after.

Till next time

Ravello/Amalfi Coast wedding

When you stumble upon something fabulous when you travel it can make a mediocre place or experience magical, well the good news is Ravello is neither mediocre or blah, it is magical and we found this hotel on the ocean in Ravello, walkable distance to other towns along the coast, or a drive up the hill behind (you can climb the stairs from the bottom if you want, i have no idea how long that would take as no way i was going to do it, even though the views would have been stunning) and go to the main town of Ravello high high up with incredible views looking down to the Amalfi coast and ocean.

Whether you want to take over this resort or others in the area or have everyone stay up at the main part of Ravello, this is a perfect place to bring a small group or many to for your Amalfi destination wedding, and i would love to help you.

My travel partner can arrange all the  guests air/hotel/transport and any pre/post group excursions we want to do.  So between the two of us, nice and easy for you.

Till next time

Lake Como wedding

Aaaah beautiful Lake Como with so many options for your Destination Wedding.  You can do it in the township, old or new style, so many cool restaurants by the water, or one of the venues dotted all around the lake that guests can get to by boat or stay in that small village/town and just walk to your wedding.  Fun fun, my fave location around the lake is Bellagio and that gets it’s own post/blog later.

Let me help you plan your Lake Como wedding celebration, intimate or large, and my travel partner can handle all the air/hotels and pre/post group excursions we plan!  So we will make it nice and easy for you.

Till next time

Sorrento Italy wedding celebration

Sorrento is such a great city, a gateway to so many wonderful places/experiences in Italy.  Capri is a boat ride away, Amalfi is down the coast, Naples is up the road, Pompei is not that far, and it has a village/walk around feel/vibe which is great for a destination wedding.  Guests can stay where they want/budget or style preference yet still be close to everyone else in town, and I have the perfect hotel with gorgeous views over to Naples for the wedding celebration.  Once the wedding is over, you can determine where you are going to honeymoon and your guests can continue travelling wherever they want from this central place not only to Italy, but can fly from Naples wherever they want to go.  I have been to Sorrento and this area two times and I will be back!!

Let me help you plan and have a wonderful Sorrento wedding celebration.

Till next time

Tuscany wedding

Be still my heart.  I am very fortunate to have been to Tuscany 5 times, last time 11 months ago and in fact was supposed to be heading there this week but due to coronavirus not going, so aiming for a different trip that was planned for later in the year, fingers and toes crossed.  So my US bestie moved here with her Italian husband nearly 3 years ago, they had spent 20 years in the USA and now it was time to have time living there.  This was the place they first moved to, he had gone ahead to get things in order and they have 2 cats, you can only take 1 per person on a plane, so i got to come for a weekend as that was all the time i had at that time, to bring the 2nd cat, lol!!  Pienza was the first town they lived in, they have since moved 2 times and they love where they are now, but i love this town, its my favourite i think, it is everything you imagine a small Italian village to be.

Now i have pics of a great venue, its a farmhouse with rooms so for an intimate group you can stay here and do the pre and post wedding time here and do the wedding here or elsewhere, up to you.  Options are so huge in Tuscany or anywhere in Italy.

Views from the farmhouse where you could have your wedding

Above are all farmhouse pics, it was December when i was there so that is why its not sunny and blue, plus my iPhone takes sucky pics for whatever reason

We went travelling to other villages to eat and see sights

These are thermal pools at a spa hotel, i have since gone back and we went there and it was lovely, it rained while we were sitting in the lovely hot water too, bella

So let’s do your European Destination wedding here in Tuscany, i have people on the ground there, and am fortunate to have been several times, you are in great hands.

Till next time
