Silvana & Jak are two adorable persons arrived on a cold winter day in Tuscany looking for the perfect wedding venue of their dreams and just by chance they bumped into me and we got along together immediately perfectly. Their research was focused on outstanding Tuscany venues in the famous Chianti area, a venue with a luxury touch and style to welcome and host their guests arriving from Uk in a sunny and hot day of the end of July and Castello di Gabbiano was the absolutely perfect solution for their requests.
Silvana being of Italian origins had the specific request of a good real Italian food menu for the reception and had an aesthetic sense of style that helped immensely in building a grandiose wedding.
The ceremony was held in the most beautiful Church in the Chianti area, inside the famous village of Castellina in Chianti, where the Catholic ceremony had been held by a sweet and caring priest. After the ceremony and the ritual group photos and toastings, the couple departed heading the Tuscan countryside for their private photos on board of a Fiat 500 while the wedding group headed directly to the Castle for the welcome cocktail held on the amazing panoramic garden in front of the building facing the Tuscan vineyards.
The aperitifs and antipasti were held at the arrival of the newlywed couple at the Castle while an Italian folk band entertained guests with traditional songs from central and south Italy. The elegant dinner set up in the back garden of the venue was covered with a one of a kind marquee arrived specifically for the couple from north Italy from a specialized rental company of Arabian tents and marquees and was decorated on the ceiling with great golden pattern and classy outstanding chandeliers.
The rounded dinner tables were enriched with white and light blue flowers and golden touches with many soft and romantic candles and after the excellent dinner, the party continued in the indoor living rooms of the castle with the help of a live band cheering up all guests with upbeat international music.
