Stunning Tuscan Castle Wedding

I was driving around Tuscany for some venue inspections when the phone rang and a young voice told me: I’m looking for a wedding planner to organize my Tuscan castle wedding next year, are you available? We were! In the blink of an eye we started sharing ideas and quotes, ready to meet Zayna & Patrick for a three-day full immersion.

Zayna and Patrick organized a long weekend wedding for their guests coming from the UK. The venue, a Castle nestled in the hart of the Chianti wine region, hosted the most of the wedding party. With its rooms, flats and farmhouses it offered to everybody the right accommodation. The weekend started with a wine tasting and visit at the cellars, followed by an informal pizza party at the BBQ area between the trees. To greet everybody after the wedding night, what’s better than a pool party? Beer, sandwiches, pool floats and music.

In between the wedding, literally a fairytale. The protestant and legally binding ceremony took place in the Church of Gaiole.  When Zayna arrived in the convertible Alvis TA, she looked like a princess. The atmosphere during the apéritif was magic, with the sun setting behind the rolling hills. The setting of the dinner left everybody wordless, the imperial tables, the string lights, the majestic walls of the castle as backdrop. We couldn’t find a better setting to enjoy an outdoor dinner under the stars.




The elegance of simplicity

Zayna and Patrick definitely wanted an elegant wedding. At the same time they wanted to drop any formality. Therefore, the mood should be relaxed, casual, related to the essence of the venue, which is a castle, but also a working winery. For them, it was important to leave the venue speaks for itself, and who can blame them? The spaces, the views are literally stunning!

Our palette was essential, made of greens and neutral colours, with just the bridesmaid dresses in a mat, silky mauve. English roses, lisianthus, freesia along with eucalyptus and ruscus. Only concession the orion thistle: Symbol of Scotland, where the family of the groom is originally from.


They really do go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is perfect

I do not know where to begin thanking you both for such an incredible service and wedding. We could not recommend Floé Weddings more! They are such kind, caring, hardworking people who really do go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is perfect. Every bride has their dream wedding and they helped me have that! From start to finish the full process was made so much easier – both working so hard in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. I really do not know what we would have done without them – on the wedding day itself I did not have one worry or stress they made sure everything was taken care of. My husband and I have said as much as we want to have our wedding again there is nothing we could change to make it more perfect.  Their knowledge of weddings and vendors to suit your style is beyond amazing and we were so lucky to work with them.An absolute pleasure and loved meeting and getting to know you both – already thinking of our next party so we can work with Floe again!
