Relais La Costa is one of the most elegant luxury resort of Tuscany. It’s located in Monteriggioni, near Siena, around 30 minutes drive from Florence. It is an old Tuscan-style village renovated to perfection, with the ancient features, which make it so charming, left unaltered. The spouses got ready in the villas of the property. The bride has spent the most exciting moments before the ceremony along with her maid of honour and the flower girl — the groom instead, together with his groomsmen. The religious ceremony took place in the beautiful church of Colle Ciupi, not far from Relais La Costa. The church is tiny, but wholly frescoed on the walls by Duccio di Boninsegna’s students. The photographs don’t do justice to the majesty of the frescoes.
After the mess, while the guests were enjoying cocktails on the roof terrace, I took advantage of the fabulous light to snap some wedding photographs in the surroundings. Special guest: a beautiful vintage Bentley, in the stunning scenery of Chianti, for the wedding images. The Tuscan countryside gives everything you need to get beautiful portraits. No special effect needed, I just took some photos while the newlyweds had a stroll around. And even if the day was sweltering, the shade provided a bit of shelter. It was nice to spend some time with these lovebirds, still excited from the ceremony earlier.
After the cocktail hour, the party continued. A delicious dinner was waiting for newlyweds and their guests. The decor by the talented Barbara of Four Nineteen Weddings made the atmosphere romantic and funny. The excellent local wine and the joy of living of the guests warmed the hearts of everyone. Here for you some pictures!
