- Weddings in Style by Tuscan Dreams -

It was ball of wool that initially brought Richard and Kirsten Hossack together.
Kirsten, 37, had bought the wool to try and teach her niece to knit and on the way to the canteen began talking about it to fellow IT consultant Richard.
Within a year the wedding was booked despite the fact that Richard, 34, later admitted he hadn’t got a clue what Kirsten had been talking about but hadn’t said anything because he didn’t want to appear stupid!

Both loved Italy and wanted to marry in Certaldo, the home of the Italian language but realised very early on they needed expert help to make it happen and to make it happen for £2500!
Erica Bellini, Wedding organiser for Tuscan Dreams, specialises in Tuscan weddings of all sizes and has arranged more than 50 celebrations so she quickly arranged the small but exquisite ceremony, wedding breakfast and accommodation.

Kirsten says: “Once we had called Erica all the horrors of organisation simply melted away. The wedding was perfect. We flew both sets of parents out and had the most beautiful day. Half way through the ceremony the Mayor, who was performing the service, took a phone call and we heard him say he was in the middle of a wedding so could they please call back later!

“When we were declared man and wife we kissed and there was a huge round of applause. The whole town had come out to see us and had crept in quietly and then kissed us and shook our hands as we left. It was just amazing”.

Following the service the party of seven went to a local restaurant for a superb Italian dinner, complete with harpist.
Kirsten, from Ascot in Berkshire, says: “The wedding was the most amazing day of my life. I can’t relate to people who talk about weddings and stress, this just wasn’t the case at all for us. Erica took care of everything; she found us the most beautiful flowers and even helped at the hairdressers as the Italian weather treats English hair rather differently so insider knowledge was a godsend! She was like a fairy godmother – everything came together seamlessly and amazingly.”

Erica says: “Arranging a wedding in Italy can be difficult unless you know the customs and can speak the language and you really do need to use good local suppliers to get the best food, wine, flowers and transport. Every wedding is unique and individual so it doesn’t matter if you want a tiny wedding like Kirsten’s or a big celebration for 200 people, we work with you to make sure it is exactly what you want minus the stress!”
