S+Z decided to get married in Tuscany as S Italian origins. The London locals chose a Medeci Villa for their party and a mediaeval church nearby for their lavish catholic wedding. There definitely was a vintage vibe going on during the planning of this wedding.
The Wedding Venue
Everything about this venue is stunning and just, well, otherworldly. The villa known as La Ferdinanda, Artimino or Cento Cammini (100 fireplaces) was once home to the Medici family, mainly the son of Cosimo the first, Ferdinand. The villa is perched on a hill overlooking the world below as if it were in a cloud. On a clear day you can easily see the towns of Prato, Pistoia and Florence. I believe my absolute favourite thing about this villa is the little village of Artimino itself. They are connected by a narrow road and the walled city has all of the piteresque qualities that every Tuscan village should. The entire package makes it a one of a kind venue. Every turn of the corner will leave you awe inspired with some little masterpiece in plain site. A couple could easily feel like royalty at this venue.
