More and more foreign couples choose Italy for their wedding ceremony due to its beauty and famous monuments.

Sometimes the future bride and groom are attracted to the "Belpaese" by memories left during a trip or work experience. This is the case of Brian, who lived and worked for a period of time in Tuscany and decided to return there to marry his Alison.

A week before the wedding, we met the two "Promessi Sposi" at the Hotel Villa Casagrande, a superior and elegant hotel located in the historical centre of Figline Valdarno, a small town stategically located between the cities of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, where the couple and their delighful daughter Livia are staying and where the wedding reception will be held. 

We spent a pleasant morning with Brian, Alison and Livia. It was a perfect occasion to get to know them better, to plan the wedding day and walk through the romantic alleys and squares of the city.

We would like to wish the couple all the best for their future!

Without doubt after the long period of preparation and organization, the actual wedding day slips away frenetically leaving the bride and groom with the sensation that time has flown.

At the end of the day, when tiredness and happiness replace the initial emotions, the memories remain of each significant moment of the ceremony: waiting for the bride, the bride's entrance in Church, the exchange of wedding rings, the embrace of friends, moments of collective joy and laughter.

But there are also many moments unseen by the couple, which contribute to this special day: touching glances of the nostalgic parents, the distracted children at play and what is never missing the “divertissement”, the moment when something unexpected and funny happens.

The photographer's task is to collect and immortalize these moments for future generations of the new family, but also for the parents, relations and friends as tangible memories of their shared joy on that festive day.

The photos must not only bring back to mind the moment and freeze it in time but also help you relive that moment with all its sensations. Nothing is better than “a memory keepsake” of that special day to hold and transmit those sensations and emotions.

For this reason Foto D'arte Firenze has always taken great care to present

exclusive, elegant and quality fine art prints, choosing materials which will last through the test of time.

Your box of prints will become a work of art, a treasure chest where every print is a never to be forgotten thought carved in your memory forever.

WS Weddingsmiths, for your wedding in Tuscany

Wedding planner in the heart of Tuscany | Foto D'Arte Firenze @ WS Weddingsmiths

Are you looking for a wedding planner to help you with your wedding in Tuscany?

wedding planner Tuscany

Rachael Smith is originally from Chesterfield in Derbyshire, but has lived in the small town of Figline Valdarno near Florence since 1998.

Her first wedding was her own in 2000, and she went on to plan weddings for friends who had fallen in love with the idea of getting married in Italy, and realised she had a flair for organising - and being organised!

One thing led to another and local venues began to contact her, and she began assisting couples with paperwork and interpreting at wedding ceremonies on a regular basis. More recently she has been collaborating with UK and Italy based wedding planners, as well as continuing to provide assistance to local venues and she works with a network of trusted suppliers. In 2012 she decided to set up Weddingsmiths.

Weddingsmiths specialise in organising weddings in the Chianti region, in particular in the small towns and hamlets found in the hills and valleys in the heart of Tuscany. 

If you are planning to get married in Italy and would like some information about how WS can help you plan your special day, please visit this web site.
