Stacey and Chris,

Rustic Italian dream wedding in Tuscany

Over the many years of wedding planning, the Italyweddings team have accumulated a vast knowledge of the best local suppliers, a thorough understanding of all legal and religious aspects, a love and involvement in local traditions and customs, and a passion for Italy’s enormous culinary and cultural heritage.

We have nurtured solid relationships with the top photographers, florists, and catering firms, that guarantee a first class service; along with a knowledge of the important villas, restaurants and hotels in the area.


But more than this, Italywedding’s driving passion is the aesthetic and visual nature of event planning. We love to see your Pinterest pages, mood-boards, hear your particular dreams, loves and hates, ideas and vision for your your wedding, and work with you on even the smallest detail to make that as real as possible!


Ben Singleton

CEO and Founder

has been living and working in Italy for the last 30 years. Trained in the UK as a painter, he came to live in Tuscany in 1990, and has lived in the Sienese countryside, in the area of San Gimignano, and in 1995 moved to the Florence area.   Together with Marisa, his wife and Italywedding’s floral designer they established Italyweddings in 1997. As a team they have assisted hundreds of couples over the last 20 years though every aspect of their Italian weddings. Ben is still a practicing painter and photographer. A few examples of recent work here


Cristina Valente

Senior wedding planner

Cristina graduated in Media and Cinema studies, did post graduate work in Bologna, then worked in radio, as a mural artist, a musician, and as a freelance wedding planner before joining full time the Italyweddings team. She is devoted mother to Ettore her ginger haired 2 year old son who occupies all the attention she’s not dedicating to our couples with their events over central Italy.

Cristina has a passion for precision in her work and the unusual balance of a creative eye, tempered with a logical and professional approach to event planning. A quality we feel is central to all events: Cristina will listen to your needs and work with you to balance the dream and the beauty of the occasion, with your personal needs, your cultural backgrounds, and your event budget.
Cristina grew up in central Tuscany, and like all good Tuscans, is knowledgable and proud of her heritage and ready to share that place and experience with her couples. She works both as part of our greater team for more complex events and in autonomy on many of the couples she directly follows. You’re in safe and experienced hands!
A recent couple writes (Jenny and Zak, May 2023):

Zac and I wanted to extend our thanks and gratitude to you for giving us the privilege of working with Cristina. She has been a pleasure to work with and someone who we have a great deal of love and respect for. We wanted you to know what an amazing job she did and that she won not only us over through this process, but also our family and friends.

Our wedding was exactly the way we envisioned it and the staff and food… Bellissima! Everyone made us feel special and cared for the entire day. It was amazing and exceptional to say the least. The entire experience.

We are so very happy we picked your wedding planning services and had the honor of working with a wedding planner who really cared for us and did everything she could to make our day magical. We would highly recommend your company and Cristina to anyone ever considering getting married in this area in the future.

Grazie mille!
Jenny & Zac
