Hey guys 🙂

We hope you’re both doing great! We just wanted to send a big thank you for the absolutely amazing job you did with our wedding. It was everything we dreamed of and more!

Our guests are still raving about it. We’ve heard things like “best wedding ever” and “it felt like a royal wedding” from so many people. La Foce was incredible and everything ran so smoothly.

Thanks again for everything. You made the whole process so much easier and stress-free for us, and we were able to really enjoy the whole 3 days.

Wishing you all the best!

Chiara and Francesco worked closely with us for 1.5 years to plan our dream intimate wedding. They are very experienced in planning Tuscany weddings and have an extensive network of trusted vendors that they often work with. This made it very easy to plan our wedding and think about logistics, especially since we were essentially starting from a blank slate. We only had a vague idea of what our dream wedding would be like, but Chiara, Francesco, and their vendors suggested possibilities that we had not previously thought about (i.e., live wedding cake making, watercolor prints of guests) and truly brought our Pinterest board to life. Communication occurred mainly via email due to the time difference, but teleconference was always an option if requested.

Thank you very much to Elena and Chiara for your assistance, which allowed me to successfully complete the most dreamy and beautiful Italian castle wedding of my life.

As someone who had never been to Italy before, I decisively chose to have a destination wedding in Italy, which brought a lot of pressure and anxiety. Elena and Chiara, with their wealth of experience, guided me step by step in designing the details and gave me many fantastic ideas, ultimately giving me a wonderful castle wedding.

Everything about the wedding was perfect, from the perfect weather to the perfect planning and design, to the final perfect event. Thank you, Weddings in Tuscany. Andy and I are highly appreciated.

Weddings in Tuscany created the most magical and incredible wedding beyond anything we could have ever dreamed of.  Everything exceeded our expectations, and we cannot thank them enough for making our dream wedding in Tuscany the best experience that we will never forget.  We left our three-day event feeling that this was the best three days of our life and so did our guests – the words “epic” and “legendary” were thrown around.

From the first meeting with Weddings in Tuscany, there was an immediate calm that Chiara and Elena radiate as a result of their years and years of experience planning weddings in Tuscany that ensures you everything is going to be taken care of and you have nothing to worry about.  This feeling of calm continued throughout the entire wedding planning process and as well as every day of our event making this process minimal stress and so much fun!

Elena is an absolute delight to have worked with.  She ensures all of the details, big and small, were taken care of, guided us through decisions based on her experience while advocating for us in every aspect with vendors, the venue, transportation, etc. to ensure we get exactly what we wanted.  Having her on our side made for the easiest and most stress-free wedding planning that allowed us to truly enjoy all the planning decisions.  Not being from Italy, she was always available whether by text or for zoom calls to keep us updated that everything was on track, always making us feel like we are her number one priority.  On the three-day event, every detail was taken care of and all we had to do was enjoy the events which ensured we were in the moment and got to enjoy every second.  In addition to being an excellent wedding planner, she is an incredibly kind person and so fun to be around.  We loved our time with Elena at our food tasting and meeting up prior to the wedding for final details.

Chiara listened to exactly the vision we had in our minds for the wedding decoration – timeless, intimate Italian romance – and created the most beautiful table décor and flowers for every event.  From the pizza party to the pre-wedding dinner to the wedding ceremony to the wedding dinner – everything was magical and exactly what we wanted and better than we could have ever imagined.  The wedding dinner was particularly stunning and absolutely captured the Italian romance and something we will never forget.  Chiara is so sweet and so warm.

Weddings in Tuscany made our dream wedding in Tuscany a reality while also making it a fun and easy experience with no stress allowing us to focus on this exciting time as a couple starting our new life as husband and wife.  They are incredibly warm and make you feel like you are part of their family during this intimate time together.   We are so thankful we had them plan our wedding and consider them our lifelong friends! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Elena and Chiara and the whole team at Weddings in Tuscany!

With lots of love,

Nick and Lorrin Kebel

Nuestra historia empieza en Florencia,  nuestra ciudad favorita.. Alli mi esposo y yo decidimos casarnos y tuvimos la fortuna de elegir a Weddings  in Tuscany para organizar todo lo relacionado con nuestra  y la verdad ha sido la elección más acertada. Ellos hicieron que ese día fuese  inolvidable para nosotros y nuestras familias, todos los detalles hechos con un gran gusto y elegancia todo fue nuestro gran cuento de hadas.
Gracias Elena Petrucci por tu gran dedicación, esfuerzo y amor por tu trabajo, has  hecho que todo esto pareciera fácil,  que nuestro sueño se hiciera realidad.
Eternamente agradecidos !

Danny y Maritza

We really enjoyed working with both Elena and Chiara and they are truly amazing to make your dream wedding come true!

They had great recommendations for the vendors and they are truly the best if you want to get married in Tuscany! From the beginning, they were always available and helpful to do zoom meetings even though there was a time difference from NYC. Planning a destination wedding can be very challenging. However, with Elena and Chiara, they really listened to our ideas every step of the way, and helped to execute our dreamy castle wedding dream come true! Elena played a crucial role in planning the details of the wedding and she helped us even give recommendations for all the amazing places in Tuscany and helped us book authentic Florentine restaurants for our family! Our family and guests had an unforgettable experience at our wedding and they said it’s truly one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to! Thank you for making our fairy tale wedding dream come true Elena and Chiara!

Love, Cindy and Adam

Dear Chiara, Chiara and Francesco,
We have been back in the UK for a few weeks now and have had time to reflect fully on the events of the summer. We wanted to reach out to you to express our complete and heartfelt gratitude to the team for guiding us to host the most perfect of weddings. I can speak for all of us when I say that we do not have a single regret or complaint. The same is true of our guests. MANY friends have expressed that this was the best wedding they have ever attended. ‘Elegant but at the same time warm and loving’, these words were echoed by so many of our friends.
The venue was beautiful, and the generosity and helpfulness of Chiara and Luca and the other castle staff was above and beyond. From breakfast to the barbecue by the pool, every event was flawless. Even the unexpected rain on Friday evening added to the “fun” of the gathering.
The flowers were beautiful and we appreciated how Chiara’s staff re-arranged them for the brunch on Sunday morning. The pizza was delicious, and a perfect lead up to the ceremony the next day. Roland’s was outstanding. The food was excellent and the service was second to none. Our guests were very impressed. Thank you also for leaning in to some of the challenging dietary requests.
Above all, Chiara and Francesco, you dealt with our many questions and sometimes last minute decisions with such respect toward us you really felt like a part of the family at the end of the weekend. Your guidance on vendors and locations was spot on. We would wholeheartedly recommend Weddings in Tuscany to any friends looking to host in your lovely part of the world.
Matt and I intend to visit Tuscany again and would hope to meet up with you to share a drink or a meal!

With warmest wishes,
Annmarie and Matthew Yorke

Cara Chiara, volevo tanto ringraziare te e tutto il tuo staff per il brillante lavoro che avete fatto! ❤️ senza di voi non sarebbe stato lo stesso! ✨
Grazie per avermi accompagnata nella realizzazione di questo sogno, per avermi ascoltata e supportata per qualsiasi cosa! ❤️ sei la migliore😘😘😘

Lucrezia e Fabio

Dear Chiara and Francesca,

We have ended our holiday in Europe and have returned home. First and foremost, thank you both for your work in making our wedding a success. We were very pleased with the process and with the results. You both did a wonderful job of coordinating and providing wedding services. Everything went smoothly. All vendors did a wonderful job. Keep them all on your list of recommended vendors. We could not have asked for anything more. We can without hesitation recommend Weddings in Tuscany to anyone looking for a wedding planner in Italy.

David and Elaine

Hi Francesca & Chiara,

Apologies for the delay in this note – we got back from our honeymoon last week and have finally gotten back into our routine but I’ve been meaning to reach out and say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It has truly been a pleasure coordinating with you & Chiara over the past few months … leading up to the wedding and the planning from afar had been so simplified and enjoyable with both of your wonderful guidance, support & beautiful visions.

The process was absolutely seamless & Francesca it is all thanks to your attention to detail & speedy responses & impeccable taste!

I apologise for my stressful energy day of – the daunting forecast had me on edge but I am so thankful for your calm & efficient help – we’d be lost without you!! We appreciate all your help in making our dream day come true!

I will highly and happily recommend any future brides to you. All the best wishes for the rest of your weddings this season.

I’ll miss you both! XOXOOX,
The Casos

What is there to say about the Weddings in Tuscany team that hasn’t been said??

Chiara and Elena were absolute professionals, a delight to work with, and created the most magical, amazing weekend we could have ever imagined!

When we had our first intro call with Chiara immediately we felt like she would be someone we could trust with our event, give input where needed and guide us through the often intimidating process of planning a wedding abroad. No idea was ever too outlandish, and she often went above and beyond to find ways to make our ideas come to fruition, but she also brought the experience to know when to push back or give a different perspective. During our wedding weekend, Chiara and Elena were behind the scenes but always present. Everything went off without a hitch, and any issues were handled swiftly, deftly, and before we even had to hear about it. Our guests had the most MAGICAL weekend, and we did too!! Looking over our pictures I am so glad she pushed us to use the perfect florist that made our events come to life! 🙂 Everything was perfect .

Thank you again Chiara, Elena and the Weddings in Tuscany team!! We will relive these memories FOREVER!

Tim and Chris

Words cannot describe how amazing Chiara and Francesca are! They brought our 3-day wedding week VISION to life – everything went SO smoothly all thanks to their experience, creativity, and professionalism! We are forever grateful for all their hard work and love that went into our wedding week!!!

These ladies are a class act and we had the best time planning our wedding with them. They are quick to respond to emails/texts/calls and are truly the best in the business when it comes to luxury Tuscany wedding planners.

Chiara has an amazing eye for design and aesthetics, which was so important to me. Francesca was our right hand in every aspect, there for us every step of the way – always so kind and thoughtful. Both Chiara and Francesca were so lovely to work with and make the best team.

We had a weather scare leading up to the wedding day and were so thankful Francesca guided us through all options calmly, and helped advocate for our dream outdoor ceremony – which we got!

If you are thinking of hiring Weddings in Tuscany for your wedding absolutely do it – the best investment for peace of mind on your big day.

Sending love from Los Angeles
xx Kenna and Beck

Dear Chiara and Francesca,
I do not have words that can sufficiently thank you for helping us make our dreams come true. Your kindness, heartfelt care and true level of effort was apparent all weekend. Professionalism is rare…you were PATIENT (with me 😬) and truly poured your energy into the weekend. That is beyond what anyone can expect. You have blown me away. I can apologise for being a groom-zilla…but when the time came…The work you invested into our wedding all came together. I truly cannot thank you enough.
Please tell me where I can write reviews and testimonials to help your business…people need to know that you are NOT just wedding planners…but professionals with huge hearts and make dreams come true. We thank you so much.
If you are ever in NYC…dinner is on us!
Thank you again. Truly 🙏🙏❤️🙏🙏
Gina and Garry

Dearest Chiara & Francesca,
I’m still not sure I have the words to try express my gratitude to you both. Our wedding weekend was an absolute dream at Villa Il Pozzo! Our guests were in awe of everything and you made it effortless. Magical was the word that kept coming up. And it truly was the most magical day. I am so thankful the internet somehow brought us to you – we literally couldn’t have done it without you. If you are thinking about having your wedding in Italy, DO IT! And choose Weddings in Tuscany! We live in the US and were so blessed to find Chiara. Communication with her and Francesco was easy and they both really wanted to help us to get the day we wanted. Plus, their easy going personalities and style helped to calm me down and allow me to feel comfortable knowing everything was taken care of. Chiara also had perfect suggestions for vendors and coordinated everything we needed. I already miss emailing back and forth with them and hope to see them again in the future! They truly have become dear friends.
We love you both SO much and wish you all the best! Our gratitude to you both is endless.
Liz & Chase

Wow, where do we begin? Chiara was a dream to work with as we planned the wedding of our dreams! Our three days of wedding events were absolutely perfect, from start to finish! After interviewing multiple planners we selected Chiara, and we are so happy with this choice! She was extremely professional, responsive, creative, and very trustworthy! Chiara was very easy to work with, despite the time difference between Italy and the west coast she was always willing to jump on a zoom and talk through things. We always felt calm after waking up to emails from her and her attention to detail was outstanding. Her team was very professional during the events as well. It was great to be able to get her advice on things, given her experience and expertise in the Tuscany region. We received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful and easy our wedding was, despite being a three day international event and that was the result of Chiara’s skills. I never thought I would be a low-key bride on my wedding day but with Chiara at the helm I was able to enjoy the experience.
Thank you so much, Chiara!!
Rachel and Pete

Dear Chiara, Francesca, and Francesco,

It’s been two months since our wedding and both me and my husband still think about it every day (I’m sure we will be daydreaming about our wedding weekend until we die!!!!).

It was already difficult to plan a wedding while we were in the U.S. during a pandemic but everything seemed easy with Chiara and her team. She was always available for any questions or concerns that we had. Every step of the way, we were re-assured and were in the loop with every vendor and design aspect. Thank you so much for truly making our Pinterest board come to life – my expectations were completely exceeded. It still feels like a dream and I can’t believe that was our wedding and I’m forever thankful. Everything was taken care of so we were able to completely let go and have the best time of our lives. Next time we’re in Florence, dinner all together! Hugs to all of you!!!!

Camille and Leonardo

Dear Chiara

Courtney and Derek

Megan + Andrew

Hi Elena! We just wanted to send you a message to say a really really big thank you. We had the most amazing wedding, everyone has told us how beautiful everything was and what a fantastic day it was. The food was incredible, the flowers were out of this world and we couldn’t be happier – it was everything we wanted and more. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, we really can’t put into words how grateful we are xxx
Giannina and Stephen

Chiara and I had a special connection from the very beginning. When you meet someone and you immediately know that this is an amazing, wonderful person you want to get to know – that was my feeling after my first talk with Chiara back in 2019. We initially planned our wedding for summer 2020 – and since the pandemic happened we had to postpone the wedding. Not once or twice. We postponed 5 (!!) times. It surely was an frustrational situation and unpredictable. The person who solved all problems, big and small was Chiara. She kept me calm through the entire process. There has never been an issue she couldn’t solve. With a smile and a warm personality she had an answer to all questions and a solution for every problem or issue. Words are not enough to describe how wonderful she is! During the days of our wedding party she was on top of things at all times. I could not have asked for a better person to guide and help me trough the planning or our tuscan wedding. It turned out to be more than perfect thanks to Chiara and her team. Not only did she smoothly manage postponing, pandemic and last minute fix of celebrant and all other small issues. From the big things to location, villas and catering to the smaller things as decoration, gifts, timings and seating chart – she always found a perfect solution. And such high standard of all the collaborates she works with. She gave us the perfect experience and a wedding better than we could ever dream of. Better than what you see in the movies. Perfect is not sufficient to describe Chiara or the wedding experience she gave us. I would not have done it any other way. Our wedding days will stay in our minds and our hearts for as long as we live. I am also grateful to know that I have gained a friend for life.

Forever grateful.
Elina & Eirik

I fully recommend Chiara at Weddings In Tuscany to make your destination wedding dreams come true. Her and her team are professional, responsive, and a joy to work with. We were fortunate to have a planning session with Chiara one year prior to our wedding. She took the time to really understand our vision, providing thoughtful recommendations, and introducing us to the best vendors in the area. As you can imagine, we had several questions throughout the process, and she was always willing to schedule a call or respond quickly to an email. You could tell she has done this many many times before and that experience is critical to plan the perfect wedding week. And that it was. The welcome party and wedding blew us away and exceeded our expectations. Everything went according to plan which is rare in this industry and the attention to detail, quality of the set up, and vendor management was a testament to Chiara’s hard work. If you are looking for somebody to plan your destination wedding, I can’t stress enough that you should work with this team.

Matt & Niki

Living in the United States, organizing a wedding in Tuscany seemed daunting. Fortunately, Chiara and Francesco took all of the hassle out of the process. From the picking of the glorious venue to the selection of the beautiful flowers and stemware, the team at Weddings in Tuscany delivered a flawless service. They provided a truly bespoke experience, not least finding a 50’s style jazz swing-band who came all the way from Naples to entertain our guests. Attentive and proactive (without being pushy) our charming wedding planners ensured that our Big Day went off without a hitch. We would unreservedly recommend them.
Alina & Andrew

Elena and Chiara were absolutely what you need if you are planning a wedding. They provided decisive direction when it came to all things and details one must consider for a wedding – from food to flowers, these women have you covered, organized and prepared. These women are always at your disposal to walk through the smallest of details and instill a sense of calm whenever you get nervous. They anticipate all issues and ensure that your day not only runs smoothly, but that all of your wedding dreams come true. Highly recommended and grazie ancora to Elena, Chiara and Leonardo!

Natalka & David

Hi Francesco and Chiara,

Thank you so much!
The wedding was so perfect; we’ve loved every second.

Thank you both for all your hard work!

Katie & James xx

Big thanks to Chiara and her team for making our special day at La Foce unforgettable!

We are located in the United States. As difficult as it may seem, Chiara communicated effectively with our wedding planner in the United States through email and phone calls over a 3 month span to plan our wedding day in Tuscany! You can imagine how much work that takes to communicate back and forth in such a short amount of time. We were truly blown away with how beautiful everything turned out! Chiara jumped through quite a few hoops to make our wedding day dreams become a reality! The transition throughout the day flowed perfectly, from getting ready, to the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and finally to the reception dinner and dancing. It was the most stress free and enjoyable day! We did not have to worry about a thing! The vendors that she used and recommended for catering, florals, furniture, etc. were outstanding!

Again, we can’t thank Chiara and her team enough! We highly recommend her services. You will not be disappointed!

Ariana & Jay

My husband and I were married this past October 2021 in Tuscany. We are from the US and planning a wedding overseas in the midst of COVID really was no easy feat.

Chiara and her team were just amazing, I couldn’t have done it without her. We went back and forth for months prior to the big day and being that we are so far away I really had to trust her expertise and creativity. It was the most beautiful day, it far exceeded my expectations and all of the vendors she suggested were spectacular. Not only is her work amazing, she was so lovely to work with, I would recommend her and her team 1000%!

Thank you Chiara for a day we will remember and cherish forever!

Jenna Tocci Trude

Hi Chiara and Elena,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and fantastic work in planning our wedding. The day went by so effortlessly, thanks to you. It was everything we hoped for. You ladies are the best!

Thanks again and hope we can keep in touch.

Stay safe!

Maude and Andrew


Ciao Chiara!
How are you? We miss you already! First, we want to thank you and Elena so much for making our planning experience and wedding weekend so amazing. We had the best time and feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful and beautiful wedding.

We hope that your remaining weddings are going smoothly! I’ve been following along on Instagram and, as usual, everything has been stunning.

Mallory & Nick

If there is one investment for a wedding in Tuscany that we can recommend without any doubt, then it is to get yourself some professional support by the Weddings in Tuscany team. With their caring, patient and most of all sympathetic style, Chiara, Elena and Valentina helped us not only along the way, guiding us through all the decisions that need to be taken while preparing for a wedding, but also assured that on our special day, we could just relax, go with the flow and enjoy how this beautiful place works its magic, while knowing that – behind the scenes – everything is in very good hands.

Un abbraccio a tutto il team,

Philippe & Villa from Switzerland

We wanted to thank you really from the bottom of our hearts. We grew attached to you and really feel like you are a part of our family and friends! We are sad as everything is coming to a close, family is leaving, and tomorrow we will leave Stomennano.

We are sad to leave all this behind and sad we will not see you. Thank you for making this a memory of a lifetime! You are great at what you do, and it really shows that you care about the work you do and the people you do it with. You have touched us and we hope our paths will cross again soon. If you are ever in Washington DC, or anywhere nearby, please let us know!

Big big hug.

Francesca and Karim from US

Ciao Chiara and Francesca! I’m still recovering from an epic weekend (and completely lost my voice!) Chris and I didn’t get to say thank you properly for the lovely weekend. Everything was on point and worked out better than we expected! Mother Nature also cooperated in the end. My guests including our families have been passing on glowing feedback on how well everything was organised.

Thank you for making everything happen and putting up with us. Let us know if you ever come to NY. Can’t wait to see photos from the weekend and continue living the celebration.


Chris and Suen Martorano from New York

Grateful! It is the word to describe the emotion we are feeling for living one of the best days of our lives… our wedding! Thanks to Chiara and all your team for making a dream come true and exceeding all the expectations we had! We could not have chosen better!
We are very happy!!! Every detail was planned and performed perfectly… everything was amazing!
Our guests were enjoying it along with us and now they say they had never been to such a beautiful wedding!
Thank you very much Chiara and Weddings in Tuscany for being so professional!!! Your work is exceptional! And the service of each of the suppliers is extraordinary! We will miss you all very much!!!
Thank you for making that day a wonderful fairy tale!

A huge hug!!!!

Daniela and Adrian from Mexico

Trying to plan a wedding outside of the conventional format is no easy task; we wanted to do something different from the traditional ceremony/cocktail/dinner/speeches/cake/first dance etc format.

We decided to surprise our families and friends over a 3-day week-end (keeping it relatively tight to 100 guests), and provided them with minimum information on our wedding: Land in Florence on Thursday afternoon, bring a bathing suit and a driving licence, and bring a Dolce Vita dress for Friday evening.

Although we own a house in Tuscany and have become familiar with the region over the years, we contacted Chiara & Elena almost a year prior to the event to help us organise this three-day surprise wedding.  In hindsight, we hadn’t realised at all the amount of work it required not only in terms of organisation but also in creating the relaxed and dolce vita mood over 3 days and 100 people.   Chiara and Elena’s work was exceptional, and our wedding was beyond anything we could have imagined.   An enormous thank you to both of them.

We planned our wedding on the concept of sharing with our guests what we loved most in Tuscany: Chianti landscapes, Italian food & wine, classic cars, the city of Florence from inside, original tuscan villages, spending quality time with friends, nothing too formal, and enjoying the Dolce Vita.  And with a surprise wedding somewhere in the middle….It sounded quite simple during our initial meeting with Chiara & Elena but it meant:

  • Finding a village for rent that can regroup over 90 guests (and that still has authentic Tuscan soul)
    We stayed at the Borgo di Pietraffitta.  Chiara & Elena organised each event and meals in a different place within the Borgo.  It was stunning, the staff was extremely nice, very friendly, and provided a wonderful atmosphere.
  • Decorating the village with lights and flowers
    Chiara & Elena set up lighting and flowers which provided a wonderful Dolce vita atmosphere, simple and authentic.
  • Organising 7 meals with different caterers that offer the very best Tuscan products
    Amazing food for 3 days period.  From the picnic baskets provided for the rally to the wedding cake, it was fantastic.
  • Renting 35 (yes thirty five) classic Fiat 500 for a day trip rally
    Wonderful rally, beautiful roads, good timing, and very special memories for everyone.
  • Finding a village suited for the wedding ceremony, that can park that many cars, and who’s mayor accepts to wed us on the plaza.
    The village of Sovicille was exactly what we were looking for and the Sindaco Giuseppe Gugliotti married us on his wonderful village plaza, surprising all our guests
  • Finding a special place in Florence for a private concert and cocktails on a Saturday night with a special view point of Florence (and again authentic).
    Best secret in Florence: I Canottieri.  Words cannot do justice to this special place in the heart of Florence:  A private field on the river bank, below the Uffizi, and yards away from Ponte Vecchio… Watching the sunset through the arches of Ponte Vecchio is something very very special
  • Organising a church visit with international guides
    The world cup quarter-final with France playing, made us skip the church visit at the last minute.  Chiara & Elena organised an outdoor theatre with a large TV screen for 60 guests in a heartbeat.
  • Organising a cooking lesson for 60 guests, massage sessions, hairdressers & make-up, and DJ, Pastry chef, etc…
    Outdoor cooking lesson on Sunday night.  A wonderful time, and the perfect event to close a crazy weekend
  • Organising transport for all the guests during the whole weekend
    Super efficient and reliable drivers.  We didn’t want to be on a tight schedule so Chiara & Elena organised flexible minivans that made all our trips smooth and seamless
  • Make sure it all goes smoothly
    It did.  From Thursday evening until Monday morning, everything worked perfectly and most importantly, felt easy and comfortable

The list certainly goes on, and we are grateful for all the work that Chiara & Elena did so well, for finding special places, and putting together so many outstanding teams in varied fields (catering, transportation, staff, guides, etc).

All of the above made for a very very special wedding and possibly the best week-end for a number of us. But most importantly, Chiara & Elena provided the warm & relaxed atmosphere for our guests to best enjoy this special moment for us.  And that’s something we’ll never forget.

Thank you!

Fanny and Thomas from Geneve

Chiara and the WeddingsInTuscany team planned our dream wedding in September 2018.  Words cannot describe how perfect the experience was and we feel so proud to have Chiara guide us through it.

We made two trips to Florence prior to the wedding.  The first to select our villa and the second to choose our caterers and florist.  Both trips were amazing and we would really encourage any couples to try and visit before the ceremony as there is no comparison between seeing your venue in person versus looking at photos online. We also really valued the opportunity these trips  provided ourselves and Chiara and Elena to get to know one another. This really helped to create such a relaxed environment for us and helped to tailor the style of the wedding to our taste. From these conversations with Chiara and Elena we also got familiar with Tuscan wedding traditions and styles and were happy for many of these themes and elements to be captured in our wedding.

Our ceremony was completely bespoke and tailored to us, it made our day so unique and Chiara and Elena guided us through it. Apart from expected wedding day nerves we were both so relaxed and able to focus on enjoying the best day of out lives.

Elena conducted our blessing and delivered the readings and vows so beautifully and made the whole experience very personal. Both ourselves and our guests were in awe of the experience that Chiara and the team had created – the ceremony in the garden, the backdrop of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and the incredible dinner setting.  We could not have wished for anything more.

We are so grateful to Chiara for the part that she has played in our wedding.  Chiara is an amazing designer.  Her work is full of style and class and this is why we picked her. The biggest compliment we can provide is that both ourselves and all of our guests had no stress at all from start to finish.  Chiara and the team had taken care of everything and the execution was flawless.

We can’t imagine how any other wedding planner could do a better job than Chiara and her team.

A little over a year ago, Chiara was simply our wedding planner.  Now she is a great friend.

“Infine il più grande grazie a Chiara per aver organizzato questo meraviglioso evento. Sarai sempre una parte importantissima del nostro matrimonio e occuperai sempre un posto speciale nel nostro cuore, Grazie davvero da me e Carys
(Extract from Groom’s speech)

Dear Chiara

we are back from the holidays. Sorry that I write you only two weeks after the wedding. In Africa, internet connections were very bad.

How should I describe such a wedding planner, if I miss the words, you are incredibly professional, your work made with a lot of love and art, unique, perfect to the smallest detail. the result is a perfect organized wedding from the best person i will be grateful for a lifetime.

I thank you from the heart for all these great moments we were allowed to live, I thank you for everything you have done for us. It was a magical and dreamlike experience.

I don’t think that Mirdon and I have read enough books to be able to build sentences that would truly express the gratitude in our hearts for of you who organized and supported our wedding you are an excellent wedding planner, you made the impossible possible and the joy we felt that night We have years to go before we will know for sure, but that night definitely felt like it marked the happiest moments in our lives. We wanted to be right where we were— surrounded by the people we love the most. Each person that we met eyes with, cheered with, hugged, took pictures with, and mainly danced with brought us so much comfort and contentment, tranquility and felicity, and most of all, made us feel blessed.

A dream came true, thanks to you dear Chiara.

Albana & Mirdon

Magical Tuscan Wedding

Firstly, a huge thank you to Chiara & Elena for the most memorable week of our life.

Russell & I and all our family and friends had the most magical time, everyone is still talking about how fabulous it was to this day.

Words cannot possibly describe how exquisite it was, from staying at the superb Villa il Santo overlooking the Semi Fonte valley to the fairytale town of San Gimignano, the wine farm Dolce Vita welcome Lunch, to the stunning venue for the wedding ceremony at the magical medieval hill top village of Certaldo Alto, we could not have asked for a more perfect week.

We decided on Italy as our wedding location as we had family and friends coming from all corners of the world and it seemed like the most central romantic location. Also, I have had a love affair with Italy ever since I visited as a student in 1990.

Organising a wedding in a foreign country is complicated, we both work full-time in Dubai and needed help with all aspects of the wedding week planning, from the venues / décor / catering / hair & makeup / transport and legal side, hence we did extensive research to find an appropriate Italian wedding planner who had great experience, knew the area and spoke the language. We contacted Chiara and after our first Skype conversation knew she was the one to do this for us. We immediately organised a trip to Italy to meet with her to go through all the details.

Our brief was simple, we wanted a relaxed, rustic Tuscan style wedding in a local medieval Town Hall with the reception dinner in the garden at the villa we were staying at which could cater for around 70 guests.


  • 29th May 2018 – Dolce Vita Style Welcome Lunch at Local Wine Farm
  • 31st May 2018 – Wedding Ceremony at Certaldo Alto Town Hall
  • 31st May 2018 – Wedding Reception Dinner at Villa il Santo
  • 1st June 2018 – Farewell Braai (South African Style)

We required a traditional farm house style 8 bedroom villa for the wedding party for the week, plus nearby accommodation for all our guests – Chiara arranged a number of villas for us to look at, all of which were stunning, plus she recommended a variety of local villas and hotels for our guests from low to high end to suit each of our guests budgets.

We eventually went for Villa il Santo near Barberino Val d’Elsa

– I highly recommend this villa, the owners are so welcoming and wonderful.

Once we were in Italy for our initial meeting, Chiara organised meetings with 2 different caterers, where we had the most exquisite food and wine tasting, we went through all the table settings and met with the florist to brief the wedding flowers and bridal party bouquets.

We even requested a Scottish Piper which she found for us too, living in Italy believe it or not.

The most stressful time we had was sorting out the legal paper work. Russell being South African and myself British, both resident in Dubai, getting legally married in Italy was not an easy task, but Elena was a super star, she definitely had her work cut out, but it all ran smoothly in the end.

We decided to have the actual wedding ceremony in Certaldo Alto Town Hall, which is the most magical and historic venue, following the Scottish Piper up the medieval narrow streets with my Scottish father to the town hall was an emotional and surreal experience I will never forget. The streets were lined with tourist and locals clapping it was really something else.

Words cannot possibly describe how wonderful our wedding week in Tuscany was, we highly recommend Chiara and Elena to anyone wanting to have the most exquisite wedding experience and take the stress out of the organisation.

Lots of Love & Gratitude

Dear Francesca,

We returned back to the USA yesterday afternoon and cannot stop thinking about the absolutely amazing time we had in Italy with our family. The vacation was wonderful and the wedding was the icing on the cake.

Brian and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding absolutely perfect & like a fairytale!

From the first day we started working with you we felt at ease. You recommended fantastic vendors, kept us on board with next steps and payments and were all around lovely.

The morning of the wedding we both felt relaxed and not worried about anything.

Silvia-Hair & Makeup
She and her assistant were wonderful. Kind, Calming and so talented.

Having the van take us allover on our wedding day was perfect.

Montepulciano was beautiful and having the ceremony there worked out beautifully. Elena was fabulous too! We loved walking the small streets and having people stop us to say, “Sposa” and “Augurio”. It was a bit surreal.

Post Ceremony Cocktail
The location was perfect and the views spectacular. It was nice to take a moment after the ceremony to share in the excitement with the family.

We haven’t seen their work yet but they were a joy to work with. We loved how Elisa kept telling us to get closer. It made Brian and me smile a lot! Even though there was a little chaos with the smoke bombs we expect those photos to be priceless too.

Il Falconiere
We know they were not the easiest to work with but in the end everything was spectacular. The location was exceptional with the cocktails on the one level and dinner on our own patio.
Each course was more beautifully presented than the next and tasted like perfection. The cake was not only beautiful but one of the most delicious cakes I have ever tasted. The views and sky that night could were like a painting. We appreciated you making sure that the cake slices came out with the sparklers in them. This looked so beautiful! You never missed a beat with any detail.

We knew this one would be hard for Donna since she used to design weddings but again everything was perfect. The two bouquets and the centerpieces were the exact mix of naturalness and elegance. The centerpieces were truly lovely with the mix of herbs and floral arrangements in terracotta pots and glass vases. All of the candles added the most beautiful lighting.

At one point, we thought that music would not be needed but it absolutely completed the evening. The trio was fantastic and set the exact tone that we were looking for at the wedding. Our guests commented on how wonderful they sounded.

We are excited that Weddings in Tuscany will be featured in the magazine and cannot wait to receive the link from the photographer. We believe you said we would have it by Friday. We will also email each of the vendors and thank them for their exceptional work.

Thank you again for everything. Your attention to detail was exceptional and you made our day one we will never forget.

Ciao & Hugs,

Donna & Brian

We found Chiara after searching and speaking with a ton of other wedding planners. The most important things to us was finding a planner who we got along with, whose design aesthetic we liked, and was within our budget.

We knew after speaking with Chiara for the first time via Skype that we liked her personality and vibe and would get along great. That was confirmed once we made our first trip to Florence to secure venues and vendors. It was the first time we met Chiara in person and we knew we had made the right decision that very first meeting. She was so friendly and made us feel really comfortable working with her. Chiara (and her business partner Elena) never pressured us or made us feel forced to choose or agree to anything that we weren’t happy with. I think a lot of people in the wedding industry forget that wedding planning is a completely new experience for most couples and need help navigating every part of the process. She never seemed bothered to answer our thousands of questions or to give us guidance or advice.

As for her design aesthetic, I think her portfolio speaks for itself and was the main driving factor in us choosing to work with her. Her weddings are absolutely gorgeous. We trusted her creativity and experience, and she gave us great options for flowers, lighting, decor, table scape etc. It really just came down to what we liked better at the end of the day.

We ended up booking a venue that could accomodate our entire wedding, including 2 nights stay for all 50 of our guests – not an easy feat. While we were pretty involved with that process, Chiara took charge on the areas where we really needed help like pricing, rehearsal dinner, and day of planning based on our needs.

As for the wedding itself, we were worried because all our events were supposed to be outdoors and there was rain in the forecast. We obsessed over the weather in the days leading up to it, but Chiara was super calming and came up with plan b & c options. We ended up having to go with plan B, but it ended up being amazing and honestly, better than we could have hoped for.

After 7 months of speaking with her every week leading up to the wedding and then suddenly not having that constant communication after the wedding, we’ve realized how much we miss her! With that said, she has been incredibly responsive and helpful lying up any loose ends after the fact. She’s genuinely an incredible wedding planner and an equally incredible person to know.

Jane and Joe from US

Dear Chiara,

After our wonderful wedding we really enjoyed our honeymoon in Italy.
We needed some time, to process everything. That’s why we’re writing now.

We will probably think back to this day our whole life. We had two magical and unforgettable days in Buggiano Castello. The guests harmonized like a big family, the place and the location were perfect, the church, the garden, the terrace a perfect interaction. The performance of Michael, Claudio and Luca could not have been better. Everyone felt very well. We have never experienced something like this.

We would like to THANK YOU and your team for having been with us for more than a year and realizing our ideas. We really appreciate your support.

Bye & see you
Emilia & Simon

Ciao Chiara, grazie mille per tutto!! It was just wonderful and we really enjoyed the day very much!! You and your team did such a great job!! We left a little present for you, Elena and Francesca.. Irene will give it to you by chance!!
Yes for sure, lets keep in touch! Lots of Love M&J

Martina and Jossen from Switzerland

Hi Elena/Chiara,

I hope you’re well! Sending you this email to thank you again for everything you did for our wedding, you helped make our day truly amazing! We still can’t believe how special it was. The effort you made before and on the the day was unbelievable, we didn’t expect you to stay so late!!

I can’t think of one guest that hasn’t said this was the best wedding they had ever been too and was an unforgettable experience. Many of them mentioned how great you were on the day too.

Holly and I have mixed emotions at the moment, excited to be married but sad that the wedding day is over! Nevertheless, we will look back with incredible memories!

Holly is going to send you some photos our guests took and we will be sure to send you some of the professional ones as well.

Good luck for your other weddings this summer!

Take care,
Jack & Holly

Hi Chiara and Elena
We wanted our wedding journey to be simple and enjoyable without all the stress of planning. We found you on online and you gave us Elena and all our wedding dreams came true! What we appreciated the most is that you listened to us and our wishes for a small intimate relaxed wedding and helped us live it.
Elena your presence on the day and throughout the planning was amazing. You made us feel comfortable and relaxed like we had known you forever!
Now we are back in Melbourne Australia bragging about our Tuscan get away wedding as if it was from a movie!
We will always remember your kindness.

Shane + Natalie

Dear Chiara, Francesca & Elena,
You are guys are a dream come true and we could not be happier in finding Weddings in Tuscany! I must say it can be quite nerve wrecking planning a wedding overseas, but Chiara helped from the very beginning and was invaluable through every step along our planning journey.
Our search began online and we had Skype interviews with prospective planners. When we spoke with Chiara we were immediately impressed with her depth of experience and creative talent. From our early interaction and Chiara’s responsiveness to our questions we knew it would be a good fit.
We were fortunate enough to plan a visit to Florence a few months after engaging Chiara. Prior to the trip we narrowed down our list of venues to 4-5 and she arranged the visits for us on one day. At each venue it was clear the proprietors have a good relationship with Chiara and she helped us to ask all the right questions.
We can’t say enough about how wonderful Chiara and her team were throughout the planning process. Every detail was contemplated and Chiara offered exquisite recommendations when we sought her guidance on making selections. They also helped us choose an amazing venue for our rehearsal dinner in the Tuscan countryside. We weren’t able to see it in person, so their help to guide us was much appreciated. Francesca was great to work with on this and she also planned the transportation arrangements. Everything went perfectly and our guests raved about the experience and venue.
Our wedding ceremony would not have been possible without the knowledge and determination of Elena. She helped us find a stunning Catholic Church in Florence. It was not an easy task because there are only a few churches that allow out-of-town parishioners to marry at. We really appreciated her help to navigate the local Diocese.
Finally, our wedding day and reception were straight out of a fairy tale. Chiara and her team arranged the most magical and stunning reception any of our guests had ever seen. The venue was spectacular, the food was amazing, the band was super fun and the brunch the next morning was not only delicious but also the perfect opportunity to relive the night with our guests.
If you are looking for a team with the right combination of knowledge, connections, creativity and responsiveness then you cannot go wrong with Weddings in Tuscany. Chiara and her team are all very nice, easy to work with and work extremely hard to satisfy their clients. We’ll remember our perfect wedding for the rest of our lives!
A thousand thanks,

Reena & Matt
30th May 2017

It’s been a few weeks, but the memories have far from faded… you truly helped create the best days of our lives!
Thank you for all your help in making an elaborate event, with so many moving parts, such as smooth and organized process. You checked every detail, leaving no stone unturned, turning our vision into reality. And when things didn’t go as planned (like the weather you were such professionals. Thank you for your patience, your good humour, and your creativity. You and your team are amazing, and so are all the vendors you recommended.
Planning this together was such an amazing journey, and we honestly wouldn’t change a thing!

Love Nat and Nico x

Thank you so much for making our dream wedding in Tuscany a reality. And in reality, it still very much feels like it was all a beautiful dream.

Your attention to every detail around the wedding and reception was amazing, and all of your hard work resulted in our special day running so smoothly that it appeared to be truly effortless. Thank you also for providing us with such excellent options and recommendations in relation to the wedding suppliers – our chosen venues were simply perfect and the photographers, entertainment, catering (which was superb) and service staff all worked extremely professionally to provide us with an unforgettable wedding experience in Florence. And I don’t know how you managed to arrange two days of beautiful sunshine and clear nights for us in late December in Florence, but (given what you did for the rest of the wedding) I’m not surprised you could.

We can’t thank you and your team enough for making our Tuscan wedding so very special – we couldn’t have wished for a better wedding experience”

Trina and D’Arcy from Australia

Hope you and the rest of the team are well xxx

When Sean and I got engaged looking out at the incredibly picturesque blue mountains in Australia, we knew we just had to have similar breath-taking views on our wedding day too. After a little research, Tuscany stole our hearts; the beautiful outdoor weddings with the rolling Tuscan hills as a backdrop… we knew it had to be ours.

Seeing as neither of us speak any Italian we decided to employ the services of a wedding planner to help us out. Chiara at Weddings in Tuscany was the very first planner (or, fairy godmother as I now refer to her) that we had the privilege of speaking with, and she was the last. After having spoken to her at length on Skype late one evening, we knew that she was ‘the one’ as she knew exactly what we wanted before we’d even said it – she literally finished our sentences for us!

The whole experience with both Chiara and Elena, from that initial Skype chat to The Big Day was flawless. They run an amazing company, where nothing is ever too much trouble and no question is silly. No word of a lie, I would often wake up in the middle of the night with ideas and questions bouncing around in my head and ping them over straight away… in the morning, I’d usually wake up to a reply from Chiara answering all of my questions and approving most of my bizarre ideas.

The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more. The weather was perfect, the villa was stunning and it was all down to Chiara and her team running everything so seamlessly. We barely even knew they were there – except for a special moment Chiara and I shared before the dancing started, one which will always bring a big grin to my face!

This woman knows the best vendors (the catering was INCREDIBLE), the most perfect settings and gave us the biggest and best party we have ever thrown. I doubt I would ever be able to top Chiara’s work and I would highly recommend Weddings in Tuscany to anyone, no matter what your budget or your vision. She will create the perfect, most amazing day for you and your partner. Ours will certainly be remembered by us and our family and friends forever.

Rebecca and Sean from UK

Dear Chiara and Elena,

We can not say thank you enough for all your hard work on making our wedding day so perfect!

You helped take our vision for the special day and created something even more beautiful. The day could not have been happier, from the stunning setting, beautiful flowers, and sunset over Florence. You truly made our wedding day special for every one of our guests who made the trip.

Thank you both for the countless emails and Elena for coordinating so many moving parts and our gorgeous religious ceremony.

We hope to see you both again next time we are in Italy!

Amy & Aurelio from US

Chiara, thank you for all that you did to make our wedding a reality. Hundreds of emails , many WhatsApp, your patience and love are much appreciate. We will miss you  were a huge part of our lives.
Thank you again,

Love Julie and Alex from USA

Hi Francesca and Chiara,
We have just come back from our holiday in Italy. I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping us with the wedding planning – all those endless emails clarifying details and preferences, Skype calls….
I felt very relaxed and peaceful on the Saturday – and I know you helped to sort out everything in the background, with the vendors and with Luisa.
I don’t know when we will meet again – but you were an integral part of our celebration. Thanks for taking the journey with us!
Thank you,

Michelle  & Kelvin From Singapore

Dear Chiara & Elena,
We wanted to thank you for all your help making our wedding an unforgettable day!
It is definitely challenging planning a wedding so far away, and you and Elena made us feel comfortable and always answered all our questions.
Your recommendations on catering and our photographer were fantastic!  Nicoletta Pavesi is by far one of the most amazing photographers I’ve seen.  Being a Makeup Artist myself here in Canada, I see a lot of weddings and photography and yourself and Nico are amazing!  My wedding table set-up was exactly like I had hoped for from all the photos I sent you.
La Poggiolia was the perfect setting for our magical Tuscan wedding. Everything came together beautifully and it’s a day we will never forget!
Thank you for everything, we couldn’t have planned it without you.

Jenny & Matt From Canada

Dear Francesca, Chiara and Elena,   We just wanted to thank you for everything you did to organize our wonderful wedding day. And to Elena for conducting our ceremony.   We absolutely loved everything, and I know that a lot of effort went in from Francesca to help make the day perfect.

Hello Elena and Chiara, We just wanted to thank you again for all the hard work on our wedding. Emily and I know that it was a tough set of circumstances, with the weather and the power company not cooperating, but at the end of the day all of our guests said it was one of the best weddings that they’d ever been to. I am sure that you were as stressed out as we were during the set up that afternoon but it all turned out amazingly well. The band, the food, the flowers, and the venue were all extremely well done. We got many many compliments on the rehearsal dinner at Gastone as well (people loved Dario’s food, and thought the venue was charming). You both have excellent taste, and we appreciate all that you’ve done on our behalf  We wish you continued success with your business, and thank you again for all of your help in allowing us to throw a wedding that truly was one of the best moments of our lives.   Best, Patrick and Emily From US

Good afternoon Chiara and Elena G, We’ve returned home and finally had a chance after this whirlwind trip to sit and send you both a proper note!  Thank you to you both for all of your exceptional work in making sure our wedding day was a magical as we had hoped it would be. Every detail was seamless – from every single piece of paperwork that was filed, to booking extraordinary vendors (I was SO happy with my makeup and hair), the musician was amazing and of course your recommendation on the venue.    Your professionalism and attention to detail was fantastic. On top of all of that – you are such lovely people to work with – Elena, you felt like an old friend by the end of our wedding day!   If you EVER need a reference to pass along to a prospective client, please don’t hesitate to connect, we’d be more than happy to provide.   I’ve seen a couple preview pictures on Vincenzo Errico’s Facebook page from our wedding day – and it’s made us very excited to see all the photography from the day. He does exquisite work.   You are certainly both doing the work that you were destined to do – thank you for making our wedding day unforgettable.   Sincerely, Lynette and Christopher Butt  from Canada

Dear Chiara, Elena & Weddings in Tuscany…  I honestly do not know where to start…  It is a daunting prospect beginning to plan your Wedding day away from home and in another country. We were searching online and in wedding journals for the perfect place to have the most special day of our lives…finally we decided on Tuscany.   Chiara, I am so, so glad to have found you when I did, another week of searching for venues, suppliers, caterers, accommodation etc etc would have been exhausting. From our first Skype call, I felt confident that you knew what we were looking for and you got the whole style of our wedding…but we were still to make our first ‘reccie’ trip over to Italy to start the search in real.  From the first moment I met you, I felt comfortable that you were going to look after us. Your calm, ‘can do’ attitude and easy going nature really helped us relax as we started our venue visits. Out of the 9 we had shortlisted, your suggestions were definitely the top 3 that we would have never found online ourselves, and the final visit to Borgo Stomenanno blew us both away. You had most definitely found our Happy Place.  I know as a bride planning her wedding abroad, there are a lot of pressures and anxieties to make sure that you have everything under control from a distance. Chiara, you and your team way exceeded my expectations as wedding planners…so organized, always on the end of the phone when I panicked or just needed someone to give good advice.  Just a fabulous service and experience all round!  Our special day was unreal, like something out of a fairy-tale and you and Elena were on hand through the whole day/night to make sure it was a time we will never forget. Thank you so much for recommending Heaven Flowers as our florists for the ceremony and the dinner, Gianluca and his lovely team brought me to tears with the most beautiful boho flower arrangements I have ever seen. We have gone to a total of 9 weddings in Ireland this year and all the girls have said our flowers were by far the best of the lot! Elena, you were just amazing on our wedding day and in particular at the Town Hall in Monteriggioni when we officially signed our documents. It was the most beautiful, intimate setting and we both felt completely at ease during the entire process. You also gained some admirers from the male guests in your beautiful green dress : )  Thank you so much for all your hard work and making it special for us.  Chiara, words cannot really express how happy we were with our whole magical weekend in Tuscany, it was like a dream and we could actually relax knowing you had everything in hand. Do you do Birthday Parties? That will be the next event we will contact you for : )  Grazie Mille, you’re welcome anytime in Dublin and looking forward to seeing you next year for our Anniversary.  A Thousand Thanks x

Shannon and Andrew from Ireland

Good Afternoon Chiara & Francesca, We hope that this email finds you both well and that you have had a great rest of the summer season with your weddings! We are now back in Scotland (which is very cold in comparison to Italy) after an amazing week in Tuscany followed by a honeymoon trip to Verona, Lake Garda, Lake Como and Milan. We had such a fantastic time over in Italy and can’t wait to return someday soon – already want to plan the next trip!  We just wanted to reach out to thank you both very much for your fantastic service, help, advice, emails, planning, communication and everything else that went in to making our wedding and time in Italy so special. We truly had the best day (and night) and could certainly not have done it without your help, guidance, knowledge and recommendations. It was a very stress-free experience and we would highly recommend you both to anyone wishing to get married in Italy! All of our guests had such a fantastic time and could not believe how beautiful the villa and surrounding area was. Those back home who have seen some of the photos can’t believe how stunning the location looks.  We have still to go through all of the official photographs from Pure White Photography but I have attached a couple for you both.  If there is anything else you need from us do let us know and please pass on our very best thanks again to all the suppliers you put us in contact with; Delizia, the florists, hair & make-up, Giuseppe were all fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.   Biggest thanks again!  All our best, Gillian & David Green

Gillian and Dave from Scotland

Hi Elena, Thank you so much for all your help with everything. We could have never pulled it all off without you. We have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and without your assistance that would not have been the case. It all came together beautifully and I appreciate everything you did on the day to ensure that we were able to relax and enjoy our ceremony and evening. Thank you again!! All the best

Kahlia and Dan from Australia

When we think about our wedding, we can’t help but smile! Chiara and Elena were very responsive and helpful. They assisted us in planning for 9 months and were great in dealing with all the issues that came up in planning a wedding abroad. It was such a fantastic weekend that we often say how much we want to do it all over again!  A sincere thank you to Weddings in Tuscany for helping us make our dream wedding come true!  Love,  Francesco and Natasha

Natasha and Francesco from US

Elena and Chiara, I want to thank you so so so much for everything! The ceremony, reception, photo/video were all splendid! The music was fantastic. And hair and make up were just beautiful!

Hi Elena and Chiara! Carter and I would like to thank you both for an absolutely magical day.  We had the very best time at our wedding, and it was better than I even imagined it!  2 special moments that you both created for me: 1.  When I arrived at the church, all my bridesmaids were standing outside waiting for me, and the church bell rang.  Elena- you said to me at that moment- it is all for you!  That moment has stayed with me. 2.  When Carter and I arrived in the Classic car at the reception.  Chiara, you said, you need to see everything!  I will never forget when Carter and I turned the corner, and got to see what we had been waiting for!  The beautiful reception, table, flowers, music… it was a dream! So thank you again for all your hard work and creating such a perfect day. Elena, you said you would be mailing us our marriage license, and we have not yet received in the mail.  Please let us know when we can expect it. Thank you both, and sending well wishes from California. Love, Kristin & Carter

Ciao Chiara!  How are you?  I am sorry for not writing to you sooner. Chuck and I want to let you know that we had the best time at our wedding. Everything was perfect! Thank you so much for making our dream wedding happen. Our family also had the best time and really enjoyed everything. La Borriana was beautiful and so accommodating. Jaicomo and Lara were so nice and helpful. Elena was also very helpful, we really couldn’t have done any of the paperwork without her. Thank you again for everything!  Tricia & Chuck

Elena, I wanted to write to thank you for everything you did for us to make our wedding dreams come true and I almost don’t know where to start. When we contacted your site back in mid 2014 we had so many questions and concerns about planning a wedding from Ireland. We were skeptical about using a wedding planner we had never met but all our concerns were quickly put at ease. We Skyped Chiara and she explained everything we would have to do to get the process started.  When we flew to Italy to meet with both yourself and Chiara I genuinely felt like we were meeting friends….it put us in a great position to plan a fantastic wedding with you. We talked about everything we wanted to see and do while we were there. For the year before the wedding we really appreciated your professionalism, flexibility, attention to detail, and most importantly your patience and ability to listen to our many changing thoughts throughout the months of texts, skype calls and emails (of which there were hundreds and hundreds).  It was the most perfect 2 days and exactly what we hoped and dreamt it would be. Not only us both but all our family & guests had an amazing time and that’s thanks to you Elena with a little help from Valeria in Larniano, Alberto and his fantastic catering staff, Paulo for the awesome music, Don Paolo and Silvano.  We wouldn’t change a thing….and we have made a friend for life now too! All our love,  Debbie & Steve Burton

We hope you’re both well. We just wanted to say thank-you again for helping us organize our wedding. We’ve been reflecting on our year and how perfect our wedding was and we have you both to thank for that. We couldn’t have wished for it to be better. It really was a dream come true! We’re so happy we contacted you both back in September 2014 and chose you to help us organize our wedding. You were both so organized, always responded to our constant questions and knew exactly what we meant when we told you of an idea we had in mind. We are so grateful for all of your hard work. You took a lot of the stress out of planning a wedding. We would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to get married in Tuscany. So many of our friends have told us that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and we think that is down to your help. Elena was also amazing on the day and made us feel very relaxed. Elena did so well with the complicated table plan that we wanted! It was exactly what we imagined.  We hope you have a lovely new year. Thanks again for helping us plan the most wonderful day of our lives – you are both brilliant at your job!

Hi Chiara and Elena  I cant believe it is already two weeks since the wedding; time has flown by and now we are back home and settling into normal life.  We are now preparing for Grace to start school next week – that is our next big family event!  I wanted to find a quiet moment to think about the wedding and to thank you both for providing us with such a special day.  As you know, 11th August was our 20th anniversary since we first met.  It has always been a special day for us and now it will have even more meaning and cause for celebration.  Everything on our wedding day was perfect – that was the word we used most often on the day; how perfect everything was.  It was exactly as we imagined but never really believed that it would be so good.  Certaldo and the villa were spectacular backdrops to the ceremony and reception – the perfect Tuscan setting – and our guests were so impressed by the scenery, the history and the friendly welcome of the people we met.  We did not get a chance to thank the staff from Bar Boccaccio but they were fantastic and we loved that they decorated the drinks table with flowers – we were not expecting that.  Special thanks to Roberta and her catering team – the quality of the food and service was perfect; again our guests commented on the fabulous food and the friendly and efficient service.  Grace sends a special thanks for allowing her to help out with the desserts!  Of course our heartfelt thanks to you both!  You gave us our dream wedding and that is the best thing I can say. It was not a big wedding, or spectacular but it was exactly what we had talked about for years – it was as if we had described it to you in perfect detail!  Our day was filled with love, excitement, good food, music and laughter; all the elements for an unforgettable wedding.  We were surrounded by the people we loved and the most beautiful scenery imaginable (and in Ireland we like to think we have the best countryside scenery!).  Thank you for making that happen for us.  We will certainly be back, we miss Certaldo already!  If there is anything we can do for you – reviews, photos etc please let us know.  Good luck with all your future weddings – what a wonderful job you have!  Best wishes  Elaine, Paul, Grace and Emma.

Chiara, I have just returned from Rome back to the USA.  I wanted to thank you for helping to make Emma and Chris’ dream of a beautiful, intimate wedding come true. It all felt magical to Salvatore and I. From the lovely table, to the beautiful music of the musicians, to the delicious wedding feast. Also, it would not have been possible without Elena’s help with the legal ceremony in Certaldo.  I know how much planning it took between both you and Emma and I know she was really pleased with her wedding. I can’t wait to view the pictures that Roberto shot during that day. I know it will help to recreate the story. Much thanks and appreciation and send our thanks to Elena and Roberto.   Mile grazie, Kelly Sanzo (mother of the Bride) from US

Hello Chiara,  I just want to thank you for all you did to make Alessia & Jeff’s wedding so perfect!  Once we arrived, we were able to just relax and enjoy this very special time for our families without worrying about taking care of anything.  You made sure that everything went smoothly from beginning to end.  The villa was beautiful, even better than we had expected, and Donald and the lovely woman that helped in the mornings took such good care of us.  They were both so nice and very helpful.  The table was decorated so beautifully and the dinner was delicious!  The caterer did a magnificent job with both food and service!  It was truly a fairy tale wedding!    Also, the hair & makeup girls, the flowers, the DJ, the bartenders, the brunch, the rehearsal dinner, the organization of the ceremony, absolutely everything was perfect and we want to thank you for all you did to make our daughter’s wedding such a success!  If you ever need any references for prospective brides, please let us know and we would be more than happy to do so.  With heartfelt thanks,

Elena and Chiara,   I honestly cannot thank you enough. Everything was perfect, I could not have asked for a more perfect day and weekend. It was the most beautiful wedding I could have ever imagined, I didn’t even know it was possible for it to be this gorgeous. Thank you for everything. You’re truly amazing at what you do and I can’t thank you enough. You made it everything it was and I was completely stress free. Everyone had the most incredible time. Even the rehearsal dinner and vineyard tour were completely breath taking. I don’t know how to thank you properly, just thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!  I can’t wait to get the pictures to share with you 🙂   Let me know what’s the best way to recommend your services to everyone who needs a planner in Italy! Anyone would be SO lucky to have you!

Ciao Chiara, Hope all your weddings are going well this summer!   We wanted to share our heartfelt thanks to you and Elena again for all your help and support leading up to our big day. We had the most wonderful day (despite the unbelievable heat), as did all our guests, who were totally blown away by the incredible setting, delicious food and indulgent treats and activities we planned  the gelato van was a highlight! Our all guests told us how beautiful the church ceremony was and how much they enjoyed it. They thought the church itself was really special  it looked just magical with all the candles lit and the choir was the icing on the cake  I’ m so glad we chose them as they sang beautifully and brought an amazingly joyous atmosphere to the day  as well as a few tears! Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the food  both the quantity and quality was exceptional, as was the delicious wine. The attentiveness of the catering staff at dinner was fantastic and kept our plates piled high and our glasses full so everyone was happy! The aperitivos went down particularly well  I think we depleted Prosecco stocks very early on  what did we tell you about how much British people love to drink!! All our friends have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and we can only agree. We had a truly unforgettable day and much of this we owe to you grazie mille!

We could not recommend Chiara highly enough! She took a few of my non-specific, flighty ideas and turned then into an amazingly beautiful, fairytale elopement! She is a true professional and I would not hesitate to work with her on any type of event in Italy! She was patient and caring and made me feel like the most special bride-to-be. Her contacts in Italy are the best and she is a true professional at what she does! Thank you Chiara! Devon and Michael from US

We selected Weddings in Tuscany based on a recommendation from the owner of Villa Il Pozzo, where we held our wedding in August and we couldn’t have been happier with the service provided by Chiara and Elena.   After only a few emails, Chiara seemed to have an intuitive understanding of the style and type of wedding we wanted and provided perfect recommendations, suggestions and options to suit.   We must have exchanged hundreds of emails with Chiara during the planning stage, and no request seemed too much trouble, even though we changed our minds on countless things! Elena was also really professional in organizing the paper work and guiding us through the legalities.   Chiara has a very good selection of contacts to choose from. It would be near impossible to find reliable suppliers of the same standard and quality without drawing upon her experience. The florists, musician, hairdresser, photographers, audio rental company and caterers were all brilliant. All this made for a very smooth and stress free wedding day.  We have to mention the food. Without a doubt the wedding meal was the best food we had during our week in Tuscany….and we had some VERY good meals that week!  Perhaps what blew us away most though, was just how beautiful the reception looked when we arrived back from the ceremony. All of Chiara’s efforts came together wonderfully and it all looked incredibly elegant and romantic. Many of our guests commented that it was the best, and most stylish wedding they had attended. It was certainly the best day of our lives!   Thank you Chiara and Elena!!

What can I say, it’s hard to fit into words my gratitude for Chiara and her team. Chiara was not only our wedding planner at the end of our wedding day but a true friend for life. I miss our almost daily emails!!! Her dedication, hard work, thoughtfulness, and understanding of me and my expectation for our day was really unbelievable, she responded to every email, every Skype request and never moaned or complained (and I emailed a lot!!). She managed my expectation and delivered the most beautiful day. Friends and family were overwhelmed at how perfect it was and I can honestly say our wedding could not have gone more smoothly (apart from maybe the rain in the morning but Chiara even believed that would stop and she was right)!  I would never hesitate to recommended Weddings in Tuscany, they are truly the team you need to get things done for your wedding in Italy and their amazing ness keeps you calm even in the most stressful times. As a controlling perfectionist I’m not always easy to keep happy as my new husband knows (haha) but Chiara fulfilled our dreams beyond expectation and Elena did an amazing job with the ceremony. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts doesn’t feel like enough. We will forever treasure our time with Chiara and the team and our wonderful wedding day too of course. Please contact me via Chiara if you want a reference.

First of all I would just like to say what a fantastic time we had in Italy. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and our wedding day was better than perfect. Everything was better than I imagined. Your organization of the day was wonderful. We couldn’t have done it without you so a big big thank you. You helped us make our wedding day the most memorable day of our lives. Please thank Jo as well. She got the paperwork rushed through for us and her interpretation at the ceremony was beautiful. Im just a little sad now that it is all over! But we have fantastic memories. The venue was absolutely gorgeous. Just picture perfect! Francesca was wonderful and Alessandro and the other waiter I have forgotten his name! But they all made our stay most enjoyable. You are all really friendly and we will definitely come back and stay with you again. When I’m telling my friends at home about it I cannot put it into words how fantastic the whole wedding and holiday was. So thanks again. Bye for now

Lisa & Chris, Wilde and everyone who came From UK

Dear Chiara, we can’t thank you enough for helping us create the wedding of our dreams. Every part of the day was perfect, our imagination & dreams made into reality! We really appreciate your kind & calm personality as we made our way to & through the wedding day. Thanks for introducing us to this magical place & for everything you did for us.

Lisa & John Deck from US

We would not hesitate to recommend Weddings in Tuscany to anybody considering marrying in Italy. From our first point of contact with Chiara we received an immediate response, all questions were answered fully and nothing seemed too much trouble. Our wedding day was perfect, the florist, videographer, photographer and violinist selected by Chiara were excellent. Tuscany is very beautiful and with the help of Chiara and her team your wedding day will be everything you have dreamed of.

Bernadette & Mark from London

We had the most amazing wedding at the Villa – better than we could have ever imagined. Chiara and Jo were fantastic to work with in the run-up to the big day and were brilliant on the day itself. We were both so nervous before the ceremony started but Jo was so bubbly we all relaxed. Chiara’s local knowledge and contacts were excellent. All her recommendations for vendors were first class – the venue (the Villa and the fantastic Francesca & team), the music, the flowers, the photographer and videographer, accommodation – there were no disappointments. Ourselves, our families and our guests have so many happy memories from the entire weekend – there is no way we could have done it without you. Mille Grazie!!!

Rebecca & Alex from UK

Dear Elena, We just returned home this past Sunday and Steve and I just wanted to thank you again for arranging our wonderful wedding. Everything worked out perfectly – even the weather – and our dinner at the restaurant was amazing. The wedding cake was delicious and we were treated so well by all of the staff. It is hard to believe it is all over now but we have wonderful memories and hopefully some day we will come back and celebrate an anniversary. We loved Tuscany – it was our favorite place and wish we had spent more of our time there. Again, thank you for all of your work. We really appreciate it and if we know of anyone that plans on getting married in Italy, we will definitely recommend Weddings In Tuscany!!
Take care,

Wendy from UK

From our first contact with Chiara, and until the end of our reception, we had nothing but a great experience with Weddings in Tuscany. No detail was too small for Chiara and Elena, who both went out of their way to make our day special and run smoothly. The minister Mara was phenomenal. Chiara’s knowledge and dedication opened up resources to us we never dreamed of and made our wedding seem like a fairy tale. All of her recommendations were wonderful from the hotel accommodations to the beautiful castle where we were married. We highly recommend Chiara and her team to anybody thinking of getting married in Italy.

To anyone thinking of getting married in Tuscany, Imagine your dream wedding, Imagine idyllic settings, Imagine having everything the way you want it, Imagine having no stress… imagine Chiara and Elena. Their knowledge and experience guided us through the whole process (of both the ceremony and legal side). It was so reassuring to know there were two people who had taken care of the finest details with 100% confidence. Chiara’s excellent repertoire of vendors ensures that you are guaranteed the best of what you want from Photographer, Florist, DVD etc. To you both. We can not put into words how grateful we are to you both for all your help. You gave us the perfect wedding day and memories we will treasure for a life time.

Dear Elena & Chiara, Thank you so much for making our wedding so amazing. I had the best day (and week) ever. Please thank Convivium for us – they were amazing! Our guests were blown away by the cheese & meat corners and the main meal and absolutely loved the ice cream cart – the waiters looked great and the service was impeccable. Awesome. Find attached a little photo of me and Ben that a friend took – I can’t wait to see the professional photographers shots. I hope you enjoyed the day too and you liked the Molton Brown presents. Good luck with all your other weddings this year and we will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Best regards

And all my guests keep telling me how strange it was that there were no little problems and how everything went so perfectly and smoothly! So thanks a million times for your beautiful work! I will never forget it!!!!

Molly & Jesse from Alaska

It seems like I woke up from a dream the day of my wedding. As I stood outside our villa and walked down the grass to the edge where the olive trees where, I gasped at how stunning the rolling hills full of vineyards glistened in the morning sun. And I couldn’t believe that in a matter of hours, I would be looking at that same view standing next to my husband-to-be and uniting our love in front of our family in Italy! (Which is a long way from our California home land) But we made it! And our family joined us in our unconventional ideas of a perfect wedding. Thanks to the help of Chiara, our wedding planner, the entire wedding process was stress free for me. Everything was perfect. From the ceremony, to the family style seating at dinner, to the great band that kept us dancing all night, our wedding was an amazing experience neither I nor my family will ever forget. Thanks Chiara, couldn’t have done it without you!

Jessica & Jordan Michael from the US

Dear Chiara, Thank you for all your help in planning our wedding at La Borriana on 30th July. We could not have hoped for a more perfect day. The setting, the flowers, food, even the weather, everything was wonderful. You are indeed a very talented lady. Thank you again.

Andreas & Katie from UK/Norway

Dear Chiara and Elena, So…thank you so much for a successful wedding. I regretfully was so worried on the day (and before) that it took a very long time for me to settle and realize it was all happening. But when I arrived at this moment I was so pleased. Father Chris was perfect and the tenor sang beautifully. The reception was much more than I expected. I’m so happy you talked me into the cake and the torches. The food was amazing, people are still talking about it. The service was was exceptional.

From Jen & Nath US/UK

Dear Chiara & Elena, Hoping you are well. We have arrived back in Australia and it is nice to be home.We had a wonderful time in Italy seeing your country, it is so beautiful. I have to thank you once again for our most beautiful wedding it was far much better than I expected. I loved my bouquet of flowers I have never before seen such glorious roses. If you would like I can write a recommendation to add to your weddings in Tuscany web site as I just think your the best. Once again it was the best wedding ever. I LOVED IT. All thanks to you.

It was the best day of our life’s and it couldn’t have been any better. Everything from the amazing flowers, the table setting, the candles, the waiters, the food and the clear blue sky you promised will appear on the day ( wink wink ). Without you two it couldn’t have been possible and you really got what we wanted in to the single details. We would recommend you to anyone and everyone how is planning to get married in Tuscany. We are still waiting for the photo’s from the photographers but here is two our friend took.
Lots of Love

Emma & Christian from Dubai

Ciao Chiara and Elena! Tom and I just wanted to send you an email to say a big thankyou to you both for everything you have done for us. Your help in organizing the wedding over the last year has been amazing, and we literally couldn’t have done it without you. Elena – the help you provided with the paperwork was amazing and we cant believe how smooth everything ran when we arrived in Italy. The flowers, were absolutely perfect, I loved them so much and was so sad I couldn’t bring them all home with me after the wedding!! The ceremony was just how we wanted it and we thank you so much for helping make it a reality. Chiara – thank you so much for your guidance from the very beginning with everything and helping us organize the guitarist and photographer and decorating the farmhouse on the big day. The guitarist was again, perfect for us and did everything we requested which made it so personal. The photographer was also amazing. Everything ran so well on the day, there was not a single problem and because of that we were able to enjoy our day and everyone had so much fun! It was because of you both (and the wonderful tuscan setting) that our wedding was a massive success, and every single person who went commented on just how amazing the day was, and that it was the most wonderful wedding they had ever been to! We cannot thank you enough, we wish you both all the very best.

Tom and Amy Wadsworth from Australia

Ciao Elena, We are now back to reality and start work tomorrow. It was very sad when the time came to leave La Borriana. Thank you for your hard work with planning our wedding day. We had a fantastic day (and the days afterwards); everything was perfect even though we didn’t have the sun. However, the rain didn’t spoil our beautiful day and were thrilled we could still have photos outside. The food was great and my mum had a tear in her eye when she saw the bouquets. The day went quickly so we are looking forward to seeing the photos Domenico took. Thanks so much again. Please feel free to pass our details on to other potential couples. We would be happy to give a glowing reference. You made our day so very very special! With warm regards    Matt and

Best wishes,

Thank you so much!!

Hi Chiara and Elena! We’re back from our honeymoon and wanted to send you both a message to say a huge thank you for how wonderful our wedding was and how perfectly everything ran on the day. It was an absolutely magical day and so much more than we ever imagined! The guitarist added a really beautiful touch to the ceremony and the restaurant was fantastic – the food and service were both exceptional. Loved the flowers too! Please pass on our thanks to all concerned. Elena, enormous thanks for the help with the paperwork and for translating at the ceremony – it took a huge weight off our minds to have it all go so smoothly. Everything was absolutely perfect and it was without a doubt the best day of our lives – we will never forget it. We are already planning an anniversary trip back! So, thanks again for everything you both did to make our wedding so memorable – it’s hard to put into words just how special it was. Finally, our accommodation in Siena was fantastic (- if you have other clients getting married in Siena and looking for a similar place to stay, we’d definitely recommend them. Also, we really liked the photographers – it was good fun and they worked hard to get us to relax in front of the cameras!  Hope you are both well and our very best wishes!

Dear Chiara & Elena, It’s hard to believe three months have now passed since our wonderful wedding in Italy. During this time we have moved to live in a new country, set up a new home and both started new jobs so this is the reason I have only just got round to sending you this email. I am happy to report that married life is wonderful!! We really can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us and for all your help and advice that helped give us the best day of our lives. Everything about the the wedding day and the barbecue the night before was perfect and we can’t thank you enough as it was only made possible because of all your help and advice.

Chiara and Elena, We have been so busy moving and adjusting to married life, we haven’t had a free moment to breathe! We wanted to say thank you so much for helping us throw the wedding of our dreams. Our friends have not stopped talking about it! Thanks to all the work done by you, we had nothing to worry about but to show up and have a simple, elegant catholic wedding, and then a raucous party with our 40 nearest and dearest. One of our friends recently got engaged and asked for some wedding advice. We told her go abroad and let some excellent wedding planners handle it for you! We couldn’t have been more pleased, thank you for everything.

Our dearest Elena, Chiara and Francesco,  we would like to thank you immensely for making our wedding week and day as magical as it was. From arranging the cooking class, the restaurant reservations, the caterer, and most importantly helping us in finding the most charming venue and town hall to get married in, it was all such a superb job and we were so lucky that you were our support in getting all of this done. Thank you for your patience and flexibility with all the preparations and the last minute changes. We keep going back and looking at the photos and at the video and have such a nostalgic feel to it. We will definitely go back and visit, this is for sure. Certaldo is a peace of heaven and our wedding was an out of this world experience for us and for all our guests, and an unforgettable journey that will be engraved in our hearts and minds forever.  All the love from Roger and Safa Big hugs and kisses

Our wedding day was perfect all the way! Chiara and Elena were so professional during all the months of preparation preceding our wedding that they had our complete trust. Then, we could enjoy every moments of our wedding day. Chiara and Elena took care of every details to make it an unforgettable day. Because of them, we realized the wedding of our dreams. We are so grateful for that. Thank you.

In planning our big day in Italy, Chiara and Elena were absolutely fantastic in helping with everything, from initial planning, right down to the details as well as all translation and legal requirements. We certainly could not have planned such a fantastic day without them! The service they provide is first class, entirely professional, always willing to help with a smile and listen to all concerns that arise during the planning process There are no hidden extras in the service they provide, and could not have served us any better as “planners”. One of the main motivations for us for getting married in Italy was FOOD!! 🙂 We can honestly say that the caterer suggested by Chiara (, produced arguably the best food we have ever eaten!! and the service they provided was absolutely flawless. Similarly, the videographer recommended by Chiara (Tommy from Studiobonon) was a great pleasure to have around on the day, and we ended up with fantastic footage and have kept in touch with him as a friend. THANKYOU!! Chiara and Elena for everything.
We hope to see you again sometime 🙂 x

Dave & Jenny from UK

Hi Chiara and Elena Hope you are both well. Jason and I are now back from our honeymoon, a very well deserved long break 🙂 We’d like to thank you both for helping us organize the most special day of our lives. It was magical and thankfully all came together in the end.  Thank you for working with us and being patient with us through the stressful moments.

Firstly thanks you so much Chiara for helping make our wedding day so special it was amazing start to finish. We could not thank you enough for all the hard work behind the day. Things could not have ran any smoother from the accommodation for guest, to the beautiful Tuscany wedding venue right down to the decorating, wonderful food and the perfect flowers. It was our perfect Tuscan fairy tail wedding with all our loved ones watching two best friends, soul mates becoming one. Our family and friends were blown away they have not stopped talking about the perfect wedding day. Chiara we had a fantastic wedding which was very personal to us. We have unbelievable wedding photographs and memories of Tuscany for the rest of our life’s. Thank you so much, we could not have done it without you, you were a wee star to work with. Love

Ciao Chiara I wanted to thank you for the perfect work you have done. It was a very important event for us. We took the bet not to come before and trusted your recommendation. All was perfect. Thank you for having make it able to give to agne the dream wedding she wanted. Also all our guests are communicating between them and say that our wedding ranks amongst the very top best wedding they have been.

Dominique and Agne from Geneve

We want to thank you Chiara for giving us the wedding of our dreams. Wedding’s are NOT easy to orchestrate due to the emotions running high and people being tense and wanting to have everything perfect for the perfect price! But somehow you managed to understand our needs, push for the very best for us, get prices down, and still get from it a picture perfect experience that was the moment of magic I had longed for my entire life.  You worked so hard, you were always available, always ready with a smile and you never, ever let anything ruffle you. You picked the right caterer to reflect US, a FANTASTIC DJ, and the most divine flowers and decorations which people are still raving about.  Thank you for being the steady hand, and the force behind the scenes that pulled it all together. And for being such a classy, straightforward lady that deserves all the respect. I recommend you to any couple looking to get married in Italy.
With Deepest Gratitude,

Shannon and Camille from Geneve

Thank you very much Chiara and Elena for helping us arrange a dream wedding half-way around the globe! It was certainly the most memorable wedding for many of our friends and family from all over the world. The setting was beautifully chosen and our trust in your recommendation was by far the best decision we ever made as the castle was beyond breath-taking.
Grazie Mille!

Joanna & Jeffrey from Hong Kong

The service we received from you was outstanding. From my very first email exchange with you, I knew that I had made the right decision in choosing weddings in Tuscany. You and Elena were both extremely helpful and efficient in helping us through the paperwork and planning process. The package you created for us was exactly what we were looking for and we appreciated the opportunity to have something tailored to what we wanted. Although our wedding was very small, Planning a wedding in a foreign country can be stressful but all of the choices and suggestion you made were perfect and you took all of the stress away. I was always confident that everything would be perfect and it was. The venue, dinner, cake flowers, and photographer you chose exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful for everything you and Elena did to make our day amazing!

We found Chiara and Elena through Chiara’s blog and read some great reviews from the previous couples she helped. Because my fiancè and I both lived in different countries (neither of them being Italy) and neither of us spoke Italian, having Chiara help us out was essential. She and Elena were extremely easy to work with and made everything as stress-free as possible for us. Chiara was very responsive via email and/or skype and helped remind us what we needed to think about in what order. She had great advice for vendors without pushing us to choose any with whom she’d worked previously. This gave us the freedom to make decisions that were important to us (e.g, photographer/flowers) and let her expertise guide our decisions on things we weren’t as picky about (e.g., DJ). Elena was extremely helpful with all of the legal paperwork. She reminded us what we needed to do in our home country prior to the wedding and met us several times the week of the wedding to work out everything we needed to do in Italy. They were also incredibly helpful with organizing accommodations and events for our guests during their visit. We had a wonderful pizza party the evening before the wedding and took a bus tour to a couple wineries the day after the wedding. The guests were all extremely pleased and complimented us on our organization and ability to coordinate all of these activities, but it was really thanks to Chiara and Elena’s hard work. If you’re having a destination wedding in Tuscany, hiring Chiara and Elena is worth every penny!

Sara and Ross from USA

We wanted to give you a very heartfelt thank you for helping us give our family & friends an unforgettable time in beautiful Tuscany, but most important for making our wedding day SO very special. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate all of your professional assistance when choosing our venue, flowers, music, food, photographer & accommodations for our guests. Our friends are still talking about what a special wedding we had and we could not have done that without YOU & your fabulous team of vendors. Please give a special “Grazie Mile” to Francesco, Nelo, Piera and Barbara & Mama; without them our wedding would not had been the same. We highly recommend your services to any couple that is looking for a wedding planner that works within a budget & understands value and good quality to deliver an unforgettable wedding. We will forever be grateful to you… Thank you so very much Chiara! Much love,

Thank you again to you and Jo for everything! The entire wedding turned out even better then we could have ever imagined! Our guests keep telling us that our wedding was like a fairy tale!! Thank you for being so patient and responsive to us during the year or so of planning! Although I originally wanted to have the dinner outside, I am so happy we had the dinner in the cozy banquet room of the castle! It was so intimate and perfect!We are looking forward to going back for a special anniversary and will let you know when we are in the area!!!

Cara & Wes Tellie from US

Our wedding was a dream come true, it was like as if we blinked our eyes and we woke up from a dream. Your attention to detail and fine taste in everything made our dream a reality. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us, including the paperwork, all the details involved, we could not have done this without your expertise. We would recommend to anyone who is getting married overseas or local to use “Wedding’s in Tuscany” for all weddings, large or small, the outcome will be perfect. We had the time of our lives and we will cherish our wedding for the rest of our lives! We love you so much. Thank you on behalf of everyone, we are deeply moved by our experience. You and the team at “Wedding’s in Tuscany” have touched so many lives with your fabulous & Impeccable work!

Giovanna and Saeid from Canada

Dear Chiara and Elena, I hope this e-mail finds you both well. We would like to send you both our heartfelt thanks for all you have done to make our wedding day very special. We had a lovely day, everything was perfect and La Borriana was the ideal place to have our intimate wedding. So thank you! We hope to come back to La Borriana some time in the near future and also with the children. We thought the ceremony itself was also very nice and and extra special reading the poem at the end – thank you for the translation Elena. Take care, we hope to meet you again sometime in the future when we make our return journey.

Elaine and Rick Shilton from Holland

Hi Chiara, I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch since the wedding, Paul and I have been so busy, I thought it was supposed to be quiet after the big day! Thank you so much for everything, the day was amazing and everything was perfect, more than we could possibly have hoped for. It was all so easy, people kept saying it is very stressful organizing a wedding, but I have to disagree and I think that had a lot to do with you and the staff at Artimino. All of our friends were wowed by the day, the venue, the food, the weather and the music, I have never seen people go so mad on a dance floor. Some friends have described it as like a “celebrity wedding”, maybe a little over the top, but it definitely had the wow factor. Both Paul and I loved every minute and we are planning to come back for our anniversary next year. Thanks again, and hopefully see you next year!

Amy & Paul Metcalfe from UK

Chiara and her team were irreplaceable when we decided to get married in Tuscany. We flooded her with numerous questions over several months. She always took the time to answer each one, despite how silly the question was, and as a result, I was able to put complete trust in Chiara as we planned our wedding from afar. Her communication, organization, and diligence undoubtedly were two large factors to help make our wedding day as smooth as possible. Chiara dealt with every aspect as a professional, and each of her recommendations were top notch. The flowers, photographer, minister, restaurant, and musicians she hired to help us were all exactly as we were promised and had hoped. Thanks to Chiara and her team, most of our work for the wedding was arranged well in advance. Upon our arrival into Tuscany, we were able to enjoy our wedding and family without needing to tie up loose ends. Our wedding came together just as we envisioned, and without Chiara’s help, it wouldn’t have been the same. We appreciate all she did to help create a memorable and meaningful day for us.

Paige and David Brewer from US

Hi Chiara, we have had time to reflect on our wedding with all the guests over Christmas and felt we needed to let you know how much enjoyment everyone got from reminiscing about the time we had over in Italy. All of our guests think it was the best wedding they were ever at and most of that is down to you. We placed all of our trust in you and you not just met those, you exceeded them. Everything was better than we could have imagined, from the accommodation, the beautiful location, the church, the food and especially the wine, oh and of course the tiramisu! After having that, we spent the remaining three weeks of our honeymoon trying to find a tiramisu to beat it and we couldn’t. Some of our guests loved the wine at La Borriana so much they tried to get it for their own wedding back in Ireland! You were always quick to respond when contacted in the run-up to the big day and we always felt assured that any problems that arose you would handle promptly. On the day you and Patty were very calm when all around you and were always there with a quiet word of assurance or advice. We would recommend you to anyone who is thinking or getting married abroad.
Best wishes,

Culan and Trish

Hi Jo and Chiara, Nial and I are coming back to earth with a bump after having such a magical week staying at the Fattoria and having such an amazing wedding. What can we say? . . . We cannot thank you both enough and we truly appreciate the time and effort you have spent organizing our wedding, Im sure at times it was a nightmare for you both. However it completely went over any above any expectations and dreams we both had, I honestly mean it. All our guests are wishing to return in the not too distant future, in fact some are even planning a first anniversary reunion and if we do manage to get back so soon I would hope you would join us for some drinks . . . you deserve them!

Joanne & Nial

Dear Chiara & Milva, Finally, we have returned home from our honeymoon in Italy and are now beginning to settle down into married life. We wanted to formally thank you and your colleagues for making our wedding the most fantastic, enjoyable and memorable day of our lives. The quality of service you offered us was always of the highest standard and network of contacts made the whole planning experience much less stressful as we knew our wedding day was in very safe hands. When we decided to hold our wedding in Tuscany we truly did not know where to begin; things like finding a venue, organising the legalities, sourcing the entertainment and venue for the wedding dinner……and then we found “Weddings in Tuscany” and all our worries just melted away. We would personally recommend “Weddings in Tuscany” and wish you all every success for the future. We hope to make a return visit next year for our first anniversary, so will be in touch and hopefully meet up. Our love and sincere thanks to you once again.
