Amy & Joe got married at Relais Borgo Scopeto, in the beautiful countryside just outside Siena.
The weekend started off with a welcome BBQ.
Borgo Scopeto is a typical Tuscan estate with delightful views of the famous city of Siena which is only a few minutes away.
The Borgo has been beautifully restored and has all the elegance of yesteryear. From this corner of paradise you can see the Mangia Tower and Siena’s cathedral in the distance behind the gentle rolling hills.
On the wedding morning, a proper rain storm came, but it didn’t affect the spirit of Amy and Joe at all. They were determined to enjoy their wedding day with friends and family no matter what. Wedding ceremony had to be moved inside, but fortunately the sun came back out again, and the wedding reception carried on outside with the magical view of Tuscan countryside.

We are looking forward to showing our commitment to each other to all those we care about. And we are also looking forward to the beautiful Italian food and wine!
Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?: We have heard that the day goes by in a flash and that the bride and groom miss so much. We would like to see as much of the day as possible and also to relive the moments over time. Especially to look back in years at the people that were there with us.
The Venue? … Why did you choose this place above anywhere else?: A friend was at a wedding here and highly recommended it. It seemed to fit our vibe for the wedding - relaxed, family run, rustic, beautiful countryside.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?: For some of our guests it is quite an ordeal to travel to the wedding. For some of them, they have not been on holidays in many years. So we would like the guests to enjoy a stress free, relaxed, fun filled weekend.
