Italy is known the world over as an extraordinary country full of natural beauty. For the northern reaches to the deep south, you can find all different forms of landscapes, from towering mountain tops to the crystal blue sea of the islands. Thanks to its vast and diverse landscape, Tuscany contains this whole range of possibilities, and therefore is akin to a “Little Italy”. Here are some ideas for the perfect venues for an outdoor wedding in Tuscany.
Outdoor wedding in Tuscany: perfect for an “I do!” surrounded by nature
Tuscany has for years been the preferred region of Italy selected by couples for their wedding, especially by foreigners. While this may be at first for the allure of its deep ties to the history of art, but what really seals the deal for most couples is the immense variety of venues immersed in nature and each completely different from the other.
It’s no coincidence that when foreign couples mention Tuscany, in their mind they have a clear vision of where they will celebrate their love, and these “mental paintings” always contain the soft rolling Tuscan green hills.
If you are considering a wedding weekend, you could use variety of landscapes to your advantage and allow your guests to experience a journey through glimpses of different natural panoramas. For example, you could plan a beach front welcome party to then move to the vineyard covered hills or vice-versa.
In short, an outdoor wedding in Tuscany can provide all you could ever desire for an unforgettable wedding in Italy.
From beaches, to forests, to the typical Tuscan vineyards
Although most known for its shining green hill, Tuscany also offers a wonderful coastline full of long beaches, beautiful coves, such as Cala Violina in Scarlino and locations perched above the sea with breathtaking views. If the bride and groom wish to have a symbolic or civil ceremony out in the open, with the gentle sound of waves in the background, the Coast of Maremma, Pisa or Livorno and the more famous seaside towns of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio are for you!
If instead you are looking an intimate setting, a wedding in a vineyard or immersed in an enchanting forest can be an ideal solution. Long rows of vines, pine forests and century old trees will be the backdrop for your ceremony or for your reception nestling long regal tables creating a familial and welcoming ambiance.
This natural scenery can also be enjoyed simply in a green wedding in the garden of a historic villa or of a ancient farmhouse. These locations often have tiny picturesque churches nearby, perfect for those couples that do not want to forego a religious ceremony.
Finally, thanks to its mild climate, the slow passing of the seasons and its varied ecosystems, having an outdoor wedding in Tuscany is always evocative, during any time of the year. Imagine a wedding in the woods in autumn, with the typical orange foliage and hanging light that illuminate the natural aisle. Or better yet, in a garden as spring starts to bloom. Magical atmospheres that you can only experience here, in this magical region!
