Romantic elopement in San Gimignano | Winter wedding in Tuscany

Tiffany & Leonard

A San Gimignano Winter Elopement

Are you thinking of having a winter elopement in San Gimignano, Tuscany? Then, hopefully, this post can be inspiring for you!

This lovely American couple got married in San Gimignano in mid-December, yes, just a few days before Christmas! The temperatures in Tuscany can be very mild in that period, too. As you can see, both the bride and groom were dressed relatively lightly during the afternoon ceremony. Later on, during the portrait session, it was enough for them to wear a coat and a little fur to be ok.

Looking on the bright side

Jokes apart, if December works best on your schedule, the good news is you can make it! Moreover, many places, like San Gimignano, have fewer tourists during that period, which makes things easier when it comes to taking photos. Fewer people around means being less stressed and more relaxed. Since the days are getting shorter, you can easily plan an early afternoon ceremony, and we still get a beautiful soft light. Then, in the late afternoon, the Christmas lights will give a pleasant winter mood to your photos.
