A Romantic Elopement in Val d’Orcia: Love in the Tuscan Countryside

Are you dreaming of a romantic and intimate wedding in the heart of Tuscany? Look no further than Val d’Orcia, a picturesque region known for its rolling hills, charming villages, and breathtaking landscapes. In this blog post, we will take you on a journey through the beautiful elopement in Val d’Orcia of Elias and Hiwot, two beautiful souls from Australia who exchanged their vows in front of the iconic Chapel of Vitaleta, explored the Tuscan countryside, and wandered through the enchanting borgo of Bagno Vignoni.

The Symbolic Ceremony at the Chapel of Vitaleta

The Chapel of Vitaleta is one of the most iconic and photogenic spots in Tuscany. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the Val d’Orcia, this charming chapel with its picturesque cypress trees is a dreamy location for a wedding ceremony. Our couple chose to have a symbolic ceremony at this enchanting site, surrounded by the beauty of nature and the breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside. As they exchanged their vows, the soft breeze and warm sunlight added a touch of magic to their special moment.

Capturing Love in the Tuscan Countryside

After the ceremony, the couple embarked on a romantic adventure through the Tuscan countryside. With rolling hills and cypress trees as their backdrop and the majestic clouds that suddenly filled the sky, every step they took was filled with love and joy. Capturing their candid moments, their laughter, and their stolen glances, was such a pleasure for me.

Exploring the Enchanting Borgo of Bagno Vignoni and the icon Viale di Cipressi

No visit to Val d’Orcia is complete without a stop at the charming borgo of Bagno Vignoni. Known for its thermal baths and medieval architecture, this historic village offers a unique and romantic setting for unforgettable photographs, even better if you are caught by an unexpected storm that surprises you in a beautiful summer day! The couple strolled hand in hand through the cobblestone streets, exploring the hidden corners and capturing their love against the backdrop of ancient stone buildings and picturesque squares. The peaceful atmosphere and timeless beauty of Bagno Vignoni under the rain pouring added an extra touch of magic to their elopement adventure.

The crazy weather of Val d’Orcia decided to surprise us once again: after being blessed by the rainbow reaching the iconic Viale dei Cipressi, we experienced the so-called “calm after the storm” and the golden hour provided the perfect lighting, casting a warm and dreamy glow on the couple to end the day in the best way.
