Katie and Brian celebrated their Tuscany wedding in Sinalunga, in the Val di Chiana countryside, close to the rolling Siena hills.
The Locanda dell’Amorosa is a luxury country hotel estate dating back to the 14th Century, featuring stunning grounds and views.
Katie and Brian chose the venue having stayed there during a previous visit to Italy, for their first holiday together.
The couple married in an intimate symbolic ceremony Amorosa’s pretty gardens, under the shade of secular trees. During the ceremony, guests warmed the couple’s wedding rings with their blessings as part of a ring-warming rite.
During a celebratory champagne toast, guests sampled a selection of Tuscan breads, cheeses, meats, jams and honeys in the gardens.
Meanwhile, Katie and Brian captured photos in some of their favourite settings at Amorosa, including the pool area. The pool boasts enviable view of the spectacular local landscape of fields and hills scattered with vineyards and olive groves.
Later, Katie, Brian and their guests dined in Amorosa’s delightful restaurant, Le Coccole dell’Amorosa. The restaurant is a carefully restored Medieval stable, with original features, decorated in a charming country style.
Notably, Tuscan and Mediterranean culinary traditions inspire Le Coccole’s innovative seasonal menus, featuring modern interpretations of traditional recipes.
