Romantic Tuscan Villa Elopement
Tuscany ignites our passion for all things timeless, natural and that Italian light... Stunning! The magical Villa Montanare - a peaceful place in the Tuscan countryside - is the ideal setting for an intimate wedding. Australian based fine art wedding photographer and Fine Art Curation member Lillikad Photography travelled to this most amazing region of Tuscany to capture the prettiness of this unique place with his golden light and these beautiful images are the result.
Weddings by Silke sets the scene: “Choosing to marry in Tuscany – the country of timeless beauty which united the past and present – meaning to be close to the nature and finding peace far away from the rush of the rest of the world. Our unique Villa Montanare based on a hill is surrounded by a huge beautiful garden which have different terraces in different highs full of olive trees, jasmine, antique roses, aromatic herbs, overgrown oleander, cypresses, pines and beautiful old oaks. The view in the surrounded mountains and the Valley literally took the breath away from all visitors of this stunning place. Our couple was getting ready in the Villa which is decorated in a minimalism style to highlight the historical elements of the building, which you will find in every single room. Mesmerized by the beauty of the oaks we decided to adorn this wedding inspiration with focus on this strong tree and his fruits, combined with olive leaves, rosemary, wild apples, lilies and dry lavender. The couple said yes at the beautiful small chapel of Montanare. Our bride Aylin wore a pure stunning bridal gown with fine palettes of Musat Bridal. A delicate headpiece with oak leaves and sophisticated handmade jewelry of Del Brenna jewelry - the oldest jewelry of Cortona - added the perfect finishing touches. The simple table in front of the Villa was styled with tons of soft fabric in a offwhite and we decided to keep everything clean and simple to leave the focus on the oaks, just the wild apples was setting a warm colored touch to the natural colour palette of the table.”
