So excited to share this Tuscany wedding with Becca and Bastian! I first met Becca at Horsley Towers where she worked in wedding events. She mentioned she and her Fiance we’re planning getting married in Tuscany and if this is something I would consider, as you can imagine my answer was “Hell yeah!”. So on an overcast September morning, I flew into Tuscany to watch Becca and Bastian’s humanist ceremony with their closest family and friends and their gorgeous daughter, Maddie.
Becca and Bastian had their legal ceremony at a chapel in Vegas with just the two of them, but wanted their “public” ceremony to be the wedding they had dreamed of; a week long Tuscany wedding celebration with their closest family and friends.
With a bit of searching they came found the perfect place for their Tuscany wedding in a quaint town of Poppi; a small charming town in Eastern Tuscany. The town is famous for it’s incredibly well preserved 13th century castle which dominates the town square and it’s stunning far reaching views of Casentino Valley.
With a little help from Airbnb Becca and Bastian found a gorgeous villa where they and their family could celebrate their humanist wedding. A beautiful wooden pergola overlooking the rich green valleys, an outdoor pool perfect for keeping cool in the balmy weather, huge farmhouse style Italian bedrooms, rustic kitchen with a traditional pizza oven and enough room for 12 guests – it really was a perfect fit.
Below is the story of their Tuscany wedding day, I hope you enjoy.
Stunning views over the Tuscany Hills

Becca looking radiant ♥
Wedding gifts from her Sister, how beautiful are these handwritten notes.
Lot’s of small details created by a local florist call Kellen Lauxen The paper poms poms added a fun quirky feel and I loved the small bark name places, really in keeping with the rustic feel of the villa.
How beautiful is this view, it’s almost like a picture hanging on a wall.
I truly adore the next sequence of pictures, so real and full of emotion. Moments and pictures like these just become more valuable over time as your children get older.
Two of my favourites from the day ♥
Bastian’s brother flew over from Germany to help settle his nerves pre wedding and also created some lovely Groom prep moments.
