A Whimsical Wedding in Monteriggioni


When I spoke to Sarah and Matthew at length via our introductory skype meeting, I soon realised that their main concern was that their ceremony should be ‘’understated, romantic but not overly so… or gushy!’

Finding out more about them and how they viewed one another was fundamental to realizing the brief I had been so clearly given. Like most couples their vision was for a ceremony that truly reflected their individual personalities. Each were an absolute joy to work with and incredibly easy going.

Their relationship philosophy is based on the importance of nurturing a sense of fun and spontaneity and never allowing themselves to succumb to a life of complacency and routine… great marriage advice!

Won over initially by Matthew’s dry wit and considerable charm, it took little time for Sarah to fall completely for his quiet confidence and shared sense of adventure… which continued with an unforgettable wedding celebrated in the grounds of the stupendous Villa Stomennano, just outside the gorgeous medieval town of Monteriggioni. This is a fabulous choice for a vintage themed wedding.

Sarah’s radiant and angelic smile is an essential part of Matthew’s day. I’m sure you’ll agree that the Bride’s sunny radiance is infectious and makes you yearn for a long hot June celebration in Tuscany… just the perfect thought for a rainy wintry afternoon!

This was an emotional experience for me as an Officiant since I was also a bride here some years ago..

We hope this video brings a little sunshine into your world too 🙂  We would like to thank The Bride and Groom and talented videographer Mark Brown (http://www.markwbrown.com) for allowing us permission to feature this light- hearted cinematic homage to a perfect flight of fancy…particularly a whimsical moment with giant white balloons!
