For all those couples out there dreaming of an outdoor fall wedding abroad, be sure to add Tuscany to your list. Not only is this location completely romantic, but The Villa Medicea di Lilliano was the picturesque backdrop to showcase the best of what Tuscany has to offer in the fall.
The harvest inspired design from My Tuscan Wedding features a bountiful array of locally sourced materials and fall blooms that are oh-so-pretty! Studio Fotografico Righi used the natural lighting to capture all the romance which you’re about to see below and in the full gallery.
This fall, I worked at the Villa Medicea di Lilliano in Florence on a subtle, harvest themed photo shoot that showcased the bounty of the fall season here in Tuscany with references to local game like partridge and quail and items found in our harvest, like persimmons and alchechengi winter cherries. Our color inspiration was persimmon, due to the beautiful persimmon tree found on the property. To keep things looking chic, we paired this with taupe, ivory and various shades of peach. Many of the materials you see on the table, were found in the surrounding woodland area.
For those bride and grooms wishing to marry in the late fall, but still wanting an outdoor wedding, Tuscany is a great choice. The fall light, as you can see in these photos, is particularly enchanting. It’s a time of year where we have so many locally available materials, one could easily do an Eco friendly display that still looks super lux.
All of the suppliers gifted their time and materials, so the service was actually at no cost. Below is my estimate of what this would have cost, had the suppliers charged for their services. Prices are in euros.
Florals, props and rentals: 500
Hair and Make-up: 600
