A Natural Country Wedding in Tuscany

If you’re about to plan a Natural Country Wedding in Tuscany, this post might be useful for you. ApparentlyDestination weddings and elopements are more and more popular for many good reasons. And if you’re looking for a location for your slow & relaxed wedding in Italy, Il Rigo might be the place for you.

The venue

Agriturismo il Rigo is not just an organic farm, but also the actual home for Luisa and her family. As we previously wrote, we love this venue, because they keep things intimate, informal and simple. Not mentioning that this area is rich in historical medieval hamlets, like Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico, and offers the most typical landscape of the region.

The Philosophy

Luisa runs this family heritage together with her German husband Matthias. Just like it happened to us, two different cultures merged into a love story, and a family business. And like us, they host only a few weddings per year and each one is special and personal. In fact, their philosophy is to create a hand-made and home-made “slow-wedding”.

Food & Wine

Priya and Scott came here from the U.K. driven by authentic passion. They love traveling, and they’re true food and wine lovers. For this special occasion, Lorenza – Luisa’s mother, the sommelier in the house – opened three Brunello di Montalcino Jeroboam bottles. What a surprise!

The menu of the wedding day was prepared with locally grown vegetables and traditional produce. Here, they bake their own bread, grow their own vegetables and forage the surrounding hillsides for wildflowers and herbs that they add to their meals. Likewise, Luisa personally takes care of a cut flower garden that produces organic flowers for table decorations and bouquets. She always says “Every bouquet from the garden is like a child for me”, and each and every one of them is totally unique.

As a matter of fact, the biggest part of this wonderful wedding was homemade, grown and designed right there

All in the same place

Finally, here’s the selection of our favorites. All these photos were taken at Il Rigo and its neighborhoods, which is incredibly comfortable for the couple and for us too. You’re gonna find also a few candid shots of dogs and cats – they have several, and they’re super-friendly. In fact, at Agriturismo il Rigo, these pets are gonna be an essential part of the event. We hope that you’ll find this inspiring and perhaps will decide to celebrate your intimate wedding here. We’d love to have another chance to visit our Valdorcia friends.
