Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Here in Tuscany spring has finally arrived, the flowers are blooming all over the Tuscan hills, the spring vegetables are available at the local food markets, and the wedding season has begun! We are so excited about the weddings we are currently planning for this year, so many couples from all over the world will be visiting our home and be able to experience for themselves all the delights Tuscany has to offer.
One of the must sees in Tuscany is definitely Siena, this historical city located in the heart of Tuscany has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is famous for it's delicious cuisine, art, museums, medieval landscape and the Palio di Siena, a horse race held twice a year in summertime in the main square of the Palazzo del Campo (regarded as one of the most beautiful civic spaces in Europe). Siena is also a fabulous location for weddings, the most popular choice being the Palazzo Pubblico, an incredible Gothic building which dominates the Piazza del Campo. Within the walls of the Palazzo is the stunning hall ‘ Sala del Concistoro’, beautifully adorned with frescoes, paintings, sculptors and period furniture dating back to the 14th century, a divine setting for a wedding.
One of our favorite Siena weddings was the gorgeous Rhona and Alan from Ireland. From the intimate setting in the ‘Sala del Concistoro’, to the lovely shots captured by Domenico Costabile as they wandered the cobbled streets on a perfect summer’s day, Siena provided a perfect backdrop for Rhona and Alan’s wonderful day.
