Wedding Photographer Villa Mangiacane Florence

Laura and Efri come from the United States in Tuscany for their dream wedding!
This pair of New York chose the extraordinary Villa Mangiacane in Florence for their Italian wedding.
It is an ancient possession of the Machiavelli family, whose coat of arms appears in the keystone of the central arch of the portico. According to some sources, the great painter and sculptor Michelangelo Buonarroti then, helped in the design of the villa.
It is characterized, on the one hand facing Florence, one of the most beautiful Italian cities.

The villa has been recently restructured and renovated by a South African businessman who gave it back its ancient splendor, combining ancient paintings and sixteenth-century frescoes with contemporary pieces of art from his home country, in an incredible and eclectic mix which is totally unforgettable to see.

For its peculiarity, Villa Mangiacane is on Grace Ormonde’s Wedding Style Magazine, too, as the only wedding location for Italy!
After wore their wedding dresses, Laura and Efri got married with a wonderful symbolic wedding in the outdoors, under a wonderfully hot spring Tuscan day.
Some Jewish rituals were added to the symbolic ceremony
– as breaking the glass –
to honor Efri’s Jewish origins.
After the ceremony, we had a small shooting in the wonderful gardens of the Villa, among the tree-lined paths and the wonderful reflections of the pool.
The party then continued with typical Tuscan food and wine

We have to remember that Villa Mangiacane is also a winery and produce amazing olive oil and wine!
in which the guests and the newlyweds could enjoy the typical hospitality and charm of central Italy.
