One fundamental aspect when creating an event theme is
harmonising it with the venue’s original features. Harmonize means ‘to go well
together’, ‘ to bring into harmony’ and
doesn’t always mean same style or mood.
For instance Tuscan ambience does not only match with a rustic mood but it can also
be elegant in some way. The flowers’ choice, colors selection and some other
elements can add elegance to a country and rustic enviroment.
Get inspired by this beautiful settlements we have created
for M&M’s wedding in Tuscan Maremma, an elegant and refined layout matching
perfectly with the Tuscan atmosphere.

Under the tents, a sky of stringlights giving a romantic
ambience to the event. A Mirror Tableplan Seating chart hanging on a tree,

Tables are decorated with sets of centerpieces: each set
with three glass vases with big candles in different heights, and two flower
centerpieces: a creamware pottery with Soft
Pink Dahlias, White
Lysianthus and green Amaranth and
Jasmine. A smaller glass
vase is decorated with dahlias and light touches of green. Here and there many tealights to illuminate
Wedding stationary was created basing on colors and theme of
the wedding: Soft pink Dahlias and wild flowers to recall the wedding leitmotiv.

wonderful about a destination wedding is that the bride, groom families and
guests spend more than just event time together. Before or after the big day,
couple keeps guests entertained with activities that get people mingling.
our couple wanted to organize a rehearsal dinner in a different location
from the wedding venue (an elegant wine resort nestled in the middle of
vineyards and olivegroves) and with a seafood menu.
planned for them a casual but refined seaside party at an intimate
restaurant by the sea. The mood was informal: welcome cocktails were
served at sunset at the beach bar, while the dinner took place at the open
terrace. Guests enjoyed beautiful views and impressive platters of
seafood,and everyone experienced another face of Tuscan Maremma!

Destination weddings and corporate events
in Maremma and Southern Tuscany
Have you decided of having a fabulous destination
wedding or a business retreat and destination meeting in Tuscany, and you now
need to find the right location for it?
It comes naturally to investigate the conventional
Tuscany, the most famous destinations such as the beautiful area of Chianti or
historical cities as Florence, Siena, Pisa with their distinctive landscapes
and stunning views. However we would like to introduce you another less known
area in Tuscany which is a valid alternative for your choice: Maremma and
Southern Tuscany is the area that stretches from Siena
southwards to the border of Lazio Region. It’s a real jewel of Renaissance with
its famous towns, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, and the glorious wines
Brunello and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Tuscan Maremma occupies a vast portion of Southern
Tuscany and its territory can be divided in different areas: Upper Maremma with
many picturesque villages such as Pitigliano and Massa Marittima, the Metal
bearing hills and the extinct volcano of Monte Amiata; Central Maremma, and its
many villages situated between the countryside and the coast, the Maremma
Natural Park and the impressive Tarot Garden near Capalbio; and the Coastal
area with pine tree forests, sandy beaches and seaside villages of Monte
During the last few years, Southern Tuscany has
developed and improved accommodation offer and services: new and exclusive hotels
and resorts have opened for/reserved to discerning clients, and those already
existing have focused on quality. The area unicity makes them one of a kind,
absence of mass tourism converts these venues into perfect locations for
Southern Tuscany is a land still to be discovered,
unique because of the variety of its territory - hills covered with woods, flat
lands, green hills, long beaches, blue sea. At the same time it offers
excellent food and wine, beautiful locations and venues for your events. You
will ‘accomplish two objectives with one action’: your guests and your staff
will be grateful for discovering a little known region; they will experience
history, as well as Tuscan countryside and coastal activities. Then
YOUR EVENT WILL BE TRULY MEMORABLE!
