Jennifer + Freddie’s Beaturiful Wedding at Borgo Corsignano in Tuscany
Francesco Bognin whisks us away to the Tuscan Hills for Jennifer and Freddie’s beautiful wedding at Borgo Corsignano with The Tuscan Wedding! Enjoying the fabulous gardens for their sweet wedding ceremony outdoors and the spectacular views and weather, we asked Jennifer and Freddie to tell us more about how they met, their proposal story and the details of their wedding including favourite parts of the day!
How did you both meet?
“We met at a wedding in Tuscany in 2012, close to the region where we choose to get married. The wedding itself was beautiful and we knew we couldn’t go wrong if we followed a similar format whilst integrating our own style and luckily we found Borgo Corsignano as a destination that exceeded all expectations!”
What is your proposal story?
“My husband proposed by Tower Bridge in London, near where we had our first date. He organised a busker (musician) to play one of our favourite songs as we were walking to dinner at sunset. Once i heard the song playing, my husband got down on one knee and proposed, which was greeted with a big cheer from the onlooking crowd! We then went to dinner at the same restaurant where we had our first date where our family were waiting for us to celebrate. ”
Tell us about your wedding
“My vision was for low key elegance. Our style was an outdoor, rustic, romantic look that blended into the incredible surrounding scenery seamlessly.
On the location, we research almost every venue in the region (and have a spreadsheet with detailed pro’s and con’s for each to prove it!). We wanted a great location for the ceremony as well as somewhere with great facilities and enough space to keep our guests entertained for the 5 days we were there. We could not have found a better place, it was incredibly beautiful and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. We cant wait to take our newborn son there one day soon!”
What were your favourite parts of the day?
“The ceremony obviously stands out, we got amazing weather luckily and it could not have been more perfect. The speeches were all very good and well put together, both funny and touching. The band playing “shout” was a real highlight, all guests jumping up and down at the chorus is something we will always remember. My husband and I also chose to change footwear midway through the night to hi top sneakers with flashing lights to help with the dance moves! This went down really well with our guests and made for some excellent photos.”
