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.
