A dreamlike Tuscany wedding celebration held at Podere Venzano in Volterra
Location: Palazzo dei Priori & Podere Venzano in Volterra
Nestled amidst the lush, rolling hills of Tuscany, Natasha and Tom shared an intimate and romantic Italy wedding ceremony surrounded by their loved ones. Exchanging emotional vows underneath the beautiful hand-painted frescos of the Palazzo dei Priori marked the beginning of forever for this stunning couple. A marvellous and memorable reception followed the emotional ceremony at a rustic Tuscany farmhouse, Podere Venzano.
Natasha and Tom both trace their younger years back to Australia but are happy to call the historic and vibrant city of London their new home. With their love for world travel and exploration, it is fitting that they maintain close ties to the beautifully rustic, Tuscan countryside. Because of the numerous, joy-filled summers spent relaxing on a friend’s serene farmstead estate near historic Volterra, the couple knew that an Italian wedding was the perfect way to celebrate their love and commitment to one another.
For this destination wedding in Italy, Natasha and Tom prepared for their happily ever after at the rustic Tuscan farmhouse, Podere Venzano. The bride and her bridesmaids laughed in excitement and joy as the talented Samantha Pretto artfully styled their hair and makeup. Tom and his groomsmen looked dapper as they adorned their sharp, black tuxes.
Following the intimate ceremony, Natasha, Tom, and their closest family and friends made their way to the rustic farmstead, Podere Venzano, settled within the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The couple had spent multiple summers together enjoying the slow, peaceful bliss that this Tuscan getaway offered. The historic courtyard was lined with long wooden tables and the inviting glow offered by the twinkling lights overhead created a warm ambiance that blended perfectly with the surrounding countryside. Aromatic herbs in terracotta pots dotted across the wooden tables brought the true taste of rustic Tuscany to the reception. Guests enjoyed delectable, authentic Italian foods from Delizie Deliziose Catering while offering toasts to the happy couple with glasses of red wine. The couple wanted to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere that channeled the same energy as a simple village party.
As the sun set with stunning colours over the Tuscan fields, guests embraced the true celebratory spirit of the evening. Tuscany Sax & DJ brought the ultimate energy, and dancing overtook the evening. Natasha and Tom could not have been happier with their wedding in Italy as its romantic intimacy and joy-filled moments will stay with them forever.
