Conti di San Bonifacio, Italy

 

 

Conti di San Bonifaccio stole my heart! Neighbour to Gavorrano, in the stunning region of the Maremma, this luxury Villa Hotel Wine Resort is perched on a hill at the end of a Cypress Tree lined gravel driveway. This small luxury Villa hotel is intimate, tastefully furnished, with an incredible saltwater swimming pool terrace overlooking a captivating vista. 

 

The light and setting of Conti is a photographer's dream, for it makes for stunning captures whatever the occasion, coupled with the second-to-none hospitality of Maria and her team. Conti is also a Wine Resort producing the most delicious of wines and work with the local farmers for local sourced Boar meat, for example, to create the most exceptional of feasts. I love too, how they create 'set-up' stations, that are charmingly dowsed with Olive cuttings, or Peaches from the grounds in readiness for being added to the wedding breakfast tables, as seen in my captures of the 'place setting' cards.

Amy & Ashley, flew from London to promise 'Their Forever' in front of their Loved ones. Their three day adventure kicked off on the Friday evening with a Pizza & Prosecco Welcome Party. Their wedding day was styled beautifully ceremony mid afternoon on the Saturday, followed by a farewell BBQ Pool Party on Sunday afternoon.

 

 

On the front terrace overlooked by Conti di San Bonifacio, on the crest of the hilltop overlooking an incredible vista,  Amy & Ashley shared their wedding vows as they stood next to a beautiful wedding arch of linen and florals. Aisle chairs were adorned with silk ribbons and sprigs of olive branches, accompanied by hand-painted signage with a watercolour illustration of the venue on 'order of service' fans.

 

I love what I do, it is a privilege and working on weddings such as this is also an honour.
