“After some googling, we found Lisa. Lisa was one of a handful of wedding planners I emailed who all specialised in Tuscan weddings, but none of whom really got where I was coming from. Lisa got it. Lisa specialises in chilled out. She got that I didn’t care about colours of flowers but did care about having enough great wine for everyone; that I wasn’t going to worry about seat covers because we would all sit on benches and eat our homemade pasta.
So Tuscany it was. And Lisa introduced me to Bagni di Lucca, an hour’s drive from Pisa, and an agriturismo called Pian di Fiume that made its own oil and grappa, and collected its own mushrooms from the woods to make risotto. A reclaimed hamlet from medieval ages. With little stone buildings, an amphitheatre in the centre, goats wandering around, and a view over the valley. After a visit in February and a near disaster with a Fiat Punto, a steep gravel road and two inches of snow, we were hooked. It was exactly what we wanted.”
