Firenze, July 6th 2017

Not far from Fiesole in Tuscany there stands a magnificent castle, called  Castello di Vincigliata, dating back to 1031 when it was owned by the families of Vinsdomini and Alessandri. Eight hundred years later an English lord, fascinated by this picturesque ruin, decided to buy it and , with the help of famous sculptors,artisans, glassmakers and Florentine painters, he restored it to its former glory. Today it is an enchanting setting for events of all kinds but particularly weddings. Enjoying one of the most spectacular views of  Florence, Rose and Joshua have chosen it for the backdrop to their wedding celebrations.

With its beautiful gardens and romantic courtyard, Castello di Vincigliata was the perfect setting for this very special day. Rose, of Filipino origin, a mother of a 10 year old child is a wonderful person and her partner Joshua a sweet , kind and caring man. Surrounded by a group of special people in their lives in an atmosphere of pure and genuine love, they were joined in marriage and it was a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of their special day.
