La dolce vita vibes suffused Valentina & Matt’s sun drenched Italian wedding weekend. Set under the dazzling Tuscan sun, these English lovers returned to Valentina’s Italian heritage to celebrate their union with beloved friends and family from across the globe.

On a terrace overlooking sweeping views of rolling hills and cypress, the celebrations officially kicked off with wood fired pizzas and chianti cheers to good health and true love. Inclusive energy was abundant as guests relaxed into Tuscan time and basked in the warm night air.

As the first rays of light peeked over the vines, the big day had finally arrived. Morning preparations were filled with a palpable excitement and high emotions as first glances of the radiant bride in her Rime Arodaky gown brought tears of joy to proud parents.

Vignamaggio, the grand home of the Mona Lisa, was the rustic setting for the day’s events and with the sun high in the azure sky guests gathered under a sea of white parasols for an elegant garden ceremony, where Valentina and Matt bound their lives together in a passionate exchange of vows.

Champagne cheers and congratulations lead into a veritable feast for the senses and stomach as the glowing newlyweds joined their guests for a sit-down dinner and speeches, before escaping into the vines for an intimate moment of togetherness.

By candlelight and glittering sparklers, the wedding cake was constructed before hungry eyes and with the live band in full swing, guests were drawn to the dance floor to revel the night away under the eternal Tuscan stars.
