There’s an hamlet, in the heart of Tuscany, named Cinciano. Placed amidst the golden Tuscany hills, surrounded by cypresses and olive trees, overlooking the whole valley, his history dates back to 1100.
Cinciano is almost like a scattered hotel, which is a brilliant solution for a destination wedding: you can gather all your guest in something like a small medieval village, and enjoy with them some days of fun, relax and vacation, immersed in magical and timeless atmospheres.
The main building, Villa Zaballina, is perfect to gather everyone together in its wonderful gardens and by the swimming pool, which overlooks a breathtaking Tuscan typical landscape.
The bride and the groom got ready in Villa Zaballina itself, and then everyone reached Pieve di Sant’Appiano, a small very ancient – perhaps the most old one in Chianti – Romanesque church in Barberino Val D’Elsa.
Just between leaving Cinciano and getting to the church, the quickest and most intense rain poured down, creating the most fascinating mood down the road.
But after the ceremony, the sun were out again and we’ve been able to get back to Cinciano, for a lovely aperitif on the wonderful terrace, and the most joyful al fresco Tuscan dinner.
Of course, just before the sunset we had a few minutes to take a walk amongst the olive trees with the bride and the groom, to shoot a couple of super-lovely and evocative portraits.
I loved so much how Tuscany shined for this lovely couple, the sweetest french accent of such a beautiful bride and magical, suspended atmosphere we enjoyed during the whole event.
Thank you guys and many wishes of joy, love and happiness. <3
