This stunning wedding in Tuscany was sent in by English Wedding member and luxury destination wedding planner Elegante by Michelle J. It’s the most wonderful inspiration for couples planning a wedding in Italy, and showcases one of Tuscany’s loveliest venues: Villa Orlando.

Natasha and Marc’s vision for their wedding day was to get married overlooking a lake, and on our venue search trip to Italy they knew Villa Orlando was the one immediately. It’s a privately owned villa on the edge of the lake. Their guests all stayed about 20 minutes away in Viareggio which is one of Tuscany’s coastal resorts, and we held their welcome party in a beach club. The venue was kept a secret until the day of the wedding.
