Suzanne & Daniel’s wedding has celebrated in the wonderfully picturesque regions of Tuscany & Umbria. The couple and their wedding guests all stayed at the lovely Villa Baroncino, in Tuoro sul Trasimeno in the Umbrian province of Perugia, where the wedding reception was also held.
The 18th Century Baroncino estate is set in lush greenery, nestled in the hilly landscape between Orvieto and Siena and overlooking Lake Trasimeno, on the border between Umbria and Tuscany. The estate – comprised of two villas, Villa Vittoria and Villa Adele - was once an olive mill and has been restyled in keeping with its origins, to maintain the characteristic architectural features of the surrounding area.
Suzanne & Daniel were married in the medieval hilltop town of Cortona, in the Arezzo province of Tuscany. The couple’s catholic wedding ceremony was held at Cortona’s cathedral, the Concattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta. The beautiful cathedral of Cortona was built over the remains of an ancient Roman temple. Its charming and evocative interiors feature the remains of original frescoes, stained glass and lovelydoor carvings. The cathedral sits at the very top of Cortona in a pretty square with views across the Tuscan countryside.
Suzanne arrived in style in a vintage white Mercedes cabriolet, and was preceded down the aisle by her bridesmaids and two of Suzanne & Daniel’s guests of honour, the couple’s young daughter and son. After the ceremony, Suzanne, Daniel and their guests walked down from the cathedral to the centre of town where they stopped for photographs on the steps of the characteristic Cortona town hall.
Then Suzanne & Daniel wandered around Cortona’s steep, narrow lanes and pretty piazzas rich with medieval, and also renaissance, architecture and ambience. The historically and artistically-rich town offers innumerable amazing backdrops to photography.
The couple then travelled back to the Villa Baroncino, in their fabulous vintage car, where they joined their guests for a delicious wedding banquet before dancing the night away!
