This is because at the table there is Brunello with other wines that receive International prizes, because the cutting of the cake takes place in the woods with lighting by the set designer of “4 weddings and a funeral”, because the honeymoon is spent in the bedroom that once belonged to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, because the panoramas are the most beautiful in the world and because Fattoria del Colle is an authentic place, with more than 400 years of noble history and a wedding needs a true frame , true like the love that united the bride and groom.
I have been to many ceremonies all over Italy but I must say that getting married in Tuscany is unbeatable. In fact, with figures in hand, it is the most sought after destination, villas, castles and farmhouses are all possible locations, and they are springing up like mushrooms. Fattoria del Colle, in South of Siena, where I organize weddings, has in the past seen dozens of couples ask for perfection for their Day and never has this magic place disappointed them. Buy why choose it? Why is getting married here best? Read more…
Fattoria del Colle is a romantic antique location where every couple can have the wedding of their dreams with three small romantic wedding rites
Wedding lunch at Fattoria del Colle
Fattoria del Colle is several hundred years old and for this reason it can offer a wedding couple something unique and unforgettable such as the wedding night in the bedroom that once belonged to the Grand Duke of Tuscany. At the end of the Eighteenth century the farm was a secret hideaway for the Gran Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo d’Asburgo and his lover Isabella. The bedroom built for them has a decorated ceiling and antique furnishings. For an unforgettable honeymoon two hours in the exclusive wellness centre ,wine therapy, couple massages and a Jacuzzi at sunset with a well wishing toast in candle light. Warm water, effusions in an area where every detail is carefully planned. Before leaving there is another rite: the love padlock to be sealed in the Fantabosco at Fattoria del Colle so that it will remain for ever as a souvenir of the wedding couple.
Three details which distinguish the weddings organized at Fattoria del Colle and make them particularly romantic and sensational.
Fattoria del Colle wedding
Fattoria del Colle is a small hamlet with a chapel, a villa, parks, and all surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and an extraordinarily beautiful panorama. A large open space where every wedding couple can organize their “custom fitted” wedding completely different from all others. A great outdoor ceremony and party, aperitif around the swimming pools, wedding banquet and cutting of the cake, open bar and a DJ for dancing under the trees which shine with small lights until late….The intimate celebration inside the San Clemente chapel and a banquet for few. The wine wedding in the cellar and the gourmand banquet with haut cuisine dishes and Brunello from great vintages.
A really special wedding, ideal for those who choose the Tuscan countryside because of its special touch in uniqueness and charm which comes from the wine’s magic. The Fattoria del Colle winery has a large hall covered by brick vaulted ceiling, along the walls are situated the small barrels where the OrciaDoc Cenerentolawine ages. This is the location where to organize the ceremony with the altar and the chairs for the wedding couple covered in white satin. It is not a Church (by the way the estate has a delightful chapel that can welcome up to 40 guests) but the effect is all the same solemn , even though quite unusual. Next to the barrel ageing area, where there are still visible traces of the original medieval walls, is where the aperitif is served. This is a suggestive area which gives the buffet a particular Tuscan imprint. In other words it is not an anonymous frame for the wedding of a couple who has chosen Tuscany to celebrate their love.
It is very difficult to find a couple who get on so well in life and in work. Antonietta and Alessandro Francois, married 50 years ago, have celebrated their love as if it were the first day. Castello di Querceto unfortunately is under a heavy rainfall which forces a change in the programming of the party. What a shame!!! Even under the rain though the park with its lakes, the centenary cedar woods and the lights appear like a fairytale location. Luckily the Castello di Querceto halls are an authentic museum and Antonietta’s special touch has made them comfortable and welcoming. Read more…
At Fattoria del Colle every wedding is different. The location changes as does that of the banquet, the entrees and the cutting of the cake are also different…in other words every couple has a unique experience planned carefully in every detail. Wedding couples of every nationality and religion have different habits and traditions, so the usual throwing of rice after the ceremony becomes something else.
First of all, on the contrary to what happens inItaly, foreign wedding couples come
out before everyone else form where the marriage has taken place and then they stop to greet relatives.
The moment the couple exits is solemn and usually underlined just like and maybe more than their entrance. For the photographs this is perfect!
It is consequently necessary to organize a space where to stop with a doorway or a staircase for the bouquet throwing. Read more…
