As many of you know I’m finally off on honeymoon on Sunday! My apologies if my head is already wandering off to sunny, distant lands – so when I received these gorgeous pictures I had to share this with you all! So today I’m playing fantasy wedding scenarios – if I’d completely gone the other way and done it all differently, it would have been Tuscany, without a doubt. This is one for the wine lovers, for sure!

If you are thinking of holding your wedding abroad, and are passionate about your wines then why not combine the two and hold your dream wedding abroad on an Italian vineyard? Bestweddingaway.co.uk sent me this stunning pictures of one of their beautiful Tuscan Country Villa locations – it’s a wedding venue specifically for wine enthusiasts!
I can’t think of anything better than a luxurious country estate, surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills as far as the eye can see! This particular venue is about as vintage as it gets – in Italy! It’s a 19th century country estate has over 10 hectares of land.
The Villa, aside from being a wedding venue, is well known for producing some of the finest Chianti’s using the Sangiovese grapes. Their red wines include the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG, Orcia Rosso DOC and Rosso di Toscana IGT and they also produce Biancodinano, a white wine with a base of Malvasia and Tuscan Trebbiano.
The grapes are handled in their cantina consisting of modern winemaking facilities and an area for refining the wine in oak barrels. The estate also produces extra virgin olive oil from the surrounding olive groves.
What would your dream venue abroad be like? Would a beautiful Tuscan vineyard be up your street? A crazy Vegas wedding? A beach at sunset? We’re talking the stuff of wildest dreams, folks, so get commenting and get creative!
