ARTISAN WEDDINGS IN ITALY ~ Vintage, Natural & Chic
The cypress trees rustle in the breeze, silhouetted by the setting sun, as you descend the long, stone staircase to sweeping terrace. Your guests mingle alongside sweeping tables topped with loom-woven linens, wildflowers and beeswax candles, and you pause for a moment and take in the scene. Words can’t quite describe what you’re feeling, but one thing is for sure. This is pure magic.
WHAT We Do
We create weddings that are chic, natural and vintage-style… hosted exclusively at Villa Poggio alle Trese, tucked away in the countryside near the Tuscany village of Chiusi (about halfway between Rome and Florence).
To be honest, if you’re looking for a cookie-cutter Tuscan wedding, we’re probably not the right fit. Our wedding packages incorporate nature (like hand-picked, wildflower bouquets), artisan specialties (think handloom linens & beeswax candles) and local, organic products (like estate-produced olive oil and wine) to create an effect that is quite simply magical. And unmistakably Italian.
The location of Poggio alla Trese is nothing less than ideal. Situated in the countryside near with ancient hill town of Chiusi (Tuscany), and roughly halfway between Rome and Florence, the villa can be reached from the A1 Autostrada in about 15 minutes – super convenient for arrivals and departures – and the villa’s proximity to a seemingly endless number of medieval hill towns and historic sites (in both Tuscany and Umbria) is extraordinary. You can immerse yourself in the spectacular culture, history and beauty of Italy in all directions. It’s 360º of take-your-breath-away.
WHY We’re Special
We look at things differently. More closely, you could say. We make a point of incorporating the distinct beauty of Italy’s artisan, hand-crafted creations into your special day: beeswax candles from Massimiliano’s bees, personalized maiolica ceramics from Annalisa, organic yarn clutch-purses from Letizia, heirloom table linens from Barbara’s family, marbled-paper place cards from Lamberto and Italian wedding cake – baked with love by Francesco and family.
Each element of your special day is infused with a combination of these artisan details along with the natural beauty of this part of Italy, from fields of wildflowers to sweeping vineyards to cypress-lined lanes.
No embellishment necessary.
