Fusing years of wedding & event expertise with an exquisite selection of locations for celebration, the team behind Stones of the Yarra Valley is delighted to present Stones of Cortona.
A unique and remarkable destination wedding experience in the heart of Tuscany.
Steve and Vonnie Frazer, owners of Stones of The Yarra Valley, have long been enchanted by the picturesque village of Cortona and recently chanced on a villa they now call their own. Made famous by Frances Mayes, author of Under The Tuscan Sun, Cortona will steal your heart and must surely be the ultimate destination wedding location.
Having now established their Italian home, Steve & Vonnie operate Stones of Cortona from this stunning part of the world. With the experience, creativity and attention to detail of Stones of the Yarra Valley, couples can now plan a wedding in Tuscany knowing they have Vonnie and her team across the creative aspects and organisation of their wedding.
Stones of Cortona is privileged to enjoy wonderful relationships with some of the finest properties and suppliers in the Cortonese region. With access to stunning villas and beautiful churches, amazing caterers and photographers, florists, hotels and a myriad of other wedding professionals, Stones of Cortona will make your wedding in Tuscany as easy as hosting it with us here in Australia.
What we do
It is important to note that wedding venues in Italy are very different to wedding venues in Australia.
Whilst the venue provides a stunning location and backdrop, it is what might be referred to as the ‘bare bones’ of an event. Everything needs to be brought in and coordinated. It is a large administrative, logistical and creative exercise, but our team on the ground are the very best at producing incredible events.
Stones of Cortona provides:
• Management and coordination of your ceremony, including assistance with obtaining all necessary legal paperwork.
• Management of the booking process of your chosen venue, accommodation and ground transport for you and your guests.
• Organisation and management of your wedding reception including consultation for all creative aspects of your wedding, managing external suppliers and on the day coordination and pack down of the event.
• A beautifully curated collection of event furniture, tableware and creative items for you to choose from.
• The delivery of an outstanding food & beverage experience.
Our experienced & dedicated team based in Tuscany and Melbourne are with you every step of the way. From the moment you book, to your arrival in Cortona and through to your departure, let us guide you through the exciting journey of creating your dream destination wedding.
