If you want to step back in time, there is no more beautiful and glorious setting to do so than Tuscany in Italy. A hamlet hotel oozing with charm and a dream to photograph is Castelllo di Gargonza.
One of our favourite things about Castello di Gargonza is its unique aspect. Surrounded by forests, occupying a hilltop vantage point near Monte San Savino and with views across the Tuscan countryside, this Italian wedding venue is a must see. A rural hamlet, about 90 minutes from Florence, is now a private hotel that is perfect for your Tuscan wedding. Castello di Gargonza is a romantic setting for couples that want to absorb themselves and their guests in true Tuscan tranquility. There are options for your Italian wedding ceremony location such as the palace at Monte San Savino or blessings at the castle itself in the Lecceta garden. From the ceremony, guests can enjoy aperitivo around the swimming pool before the wedding breakfast at La Torre di Gargonza, the castle’s on-site restaurant with panoramic views of the Tuscan hills.
We are very fortunate to have been Tuscany wedding photographers on several occasions. Our first experience as Italian wedding photographers was back in 2014 at Lago Maggiore and we have loved coming back to this magical countryside many times since. We previously lived in Tuscany and can testify to the unparalleled settings that this region of Italy provides. For Italian wedding photographers, no two places are the same in Tuscany but all are truly beautiful and full of history and charm.
As a tip, outdoor wedding ceremonies in Italy are typically a lot later in the day because of the often intense heat during the summer months. At Castello di Gargonza, the gardens are a beautiful location for your wedding ceremony but we would recommend after 4pm both photographically and for your’s and your guests’ comfort.
