Villa Tolomei is a historic Renaissance residence, totally renovated and transformed into a 5 star luxury hotel in the hills overlooking Florence. This magnificent Resort, just a few minutes from the historic center of Florence, is surrounded by the green hills of Florence, and is one of the most stunning Wedding Venues. It offers elegantly decorated rooms and a variety of areas for different moments of the celebration: Italian Gardens, a private courtyard, the olive grove, a covered terrace and a pool area all with the rolling hills of Tuscany in the background.
A Cool Wedding Day
Lauren & Ben requested that their wedding photographs were captured in a very natural style that showcased the atmosphere and the beautiful September light. They opted for a natural reportage that captured both people and details but without overall staging and posed portraits.
Here Comes The Bride
The Ceremony in The Courtyard
The Portraits in the Olive Grove
The bridal party and couple photographs were shot in the same candid style during a gorgeous sunset over Florence to capture the golden light.
The aperitif was held under the pergola in the west garden overlooking the olive grove. The catering was provided by Villa Tolomei's own restaurant 'Il Conventino a Marignolle' that offers some of the best flavours of the Tuscan traditional cuisine.
In contrast to the more informal feeling of the aperitif, the Wedding dinner took place in the beautiful terrace of the Villa on one long imperial table. The table decor was elegant and minimalist, with white plates and silverware and green foliage - with touches of aromatic herbs and olive branches - and white flowers.
