Daniela’s top reasons for why you should get married in Italy

1. Because it’s magical! There is a romantic aura about Tuscany that cannot be found in any other place in the world. This makes it the perfect location.

2. All of Daniela’s venues are updated for modern comfort and are the ‘real deal’. There are 14th, 15th and 16th-century villas, castles and country houses to choose from. Plus they pretty much all have spectacular views. What’s more, most are conveniently close to major cities such as Siena, Florence and Pisa.

3. The weather from May through October is nearly perfect all the time, which means you can pretty much bank on the weather.

4. Because you can still have a blessing if you can’t have an official ceremony. Although Italian bureaucracy can be tricky, Daniela can help solve the glitches beforehand. She is fluent in English, German, Italian and Dutch and can arrange a civil ceremony.

5. Because the suppliers are equally as good. There are amazing florists, caterers and stylists for every taste level and pocketbook.

6. The food and wine of Tuscany are unparalleled in quality, taste and purity. As if we even had to tell you. What’s more, Tuscan cuisine offers something for everyone, so fussy children will find something.
