Villa Gamberaia: wedding location in Tuscany

Villa Gamberaia, an architectural jewel located on the Settignano hillside with breathtaking views of Florence and the Arno Valley, is a perfect example of the art of creating big impact on a small scale. Built in the early 1600s by the Florentine gentleman-merchant Zanobi Lapi, the villa is famous for the unique design of its gardens, originally laid out by Lapi and his nephews in the first half of the 17th century and preserved to this day with only a few major modifications. The villa is an outstanding example of Tuscan architecture, with a history dating back to the late 14th century. Its construction and subsequent embellishments reflect the influence of architects and artists of the caliber of Bartolomeo Ammannati, Bernardo Buontalenti, Giovanni Battista Caccini, and Giulio Parigi. The gardens, with their complex hydraulic system that still functions today, are a masterpiece of engineering and landscape design. In Eden and Paul’s marriage, Villa Gamberaia was not just a location, but a character in its own right. With its Italianate gardens, scenic terraces, and frescoed halls, the villa provided a dreamlike setting for their special day. Every corner of the villa, from the geometric gardens to the water parterre, helped create a magical and timeless atmosphere, making their wedding an unforgettable event.
