Get married in Tuscany!

Saying "I do" to each other overlooking the Tuscan hills, dining al fresco at long tables and enjoying great Italian food.

Getting married in Italy is an experience you and your guests won't forget soon!

Day 1 - Arrival

Driving through the Tuscan hills you will arrive at our fully restored Fattoria 'Le Valli'.

The interpretation of the arrival day varies from wedding to wedding. Some guests will arrive by car (1,410 km from Utrecht) others by plane (Pisa or Florence). Some guests will extend their visit to your wedding with a (short) vacation before or after your wedding.

Guests can check in on arrival day from 10:00 am and make themselves comfortable in their room or apartment beforehand. We make sure the beds are made and the refrigerator is stocked.

The best thing is to organize a reception, a festive start to your wedding days!

Once all guests have checked in, they are invited to a drinks reception by the pool. This can be done with a glass of prosecco, cocktail or real Italian limoncello. We serve an extensive antipasti (variety of Italian meats, cheese and other savories) with this.

The organization

Our team consists of five Dutch people with a common passion for organizing weddings!

Together we have run four different wedding venues in the Netherlands in 13 years and have had the pleasure of accompanying more than 1,200 couples on one of the most beautiful days of their lives.

From ceremony to party night, church services, multicultural weddings and weddings between same-sex lovers. We got to experience an awful lot of fun, touching, special and crazy moments.

2023 we decided together to slow down and plans came to move to Italy. With great enthusiasm, we are opening Le Valli in the fall of 2023 and will settle permanently in beautiful Tuscany from the end of 2024.

Our team is perfectly matched and can work well together. Everyone has their own specializations and the experience to work together to organize an amazing wedding for you.

Styling, food, drinks, accommodation and even the honeymoon we can take care of for you. Because we have all the supplies in-house, we do not work with wedding planners. We will guide you from A to Z. This saves on costs allowing us to cater your wedding for an attractive price!
