The Tuscany loves Weddings team
Organized locally, authentically styled and casual romantic
Tuscany loves Weddings is an idea of Roos van der Wielen, Sonja de Graaf & Milos Dokmanovic. Tuscany loves Weddings was born to bring the wedding planning, styling and photography closer together. While the wedding planner previously was (almost) only expected to take on the organization and a little bit of the styling, now there is an increasing trend for the combination between the wedding planning & the styling. Also the wedding photography is playing a much more important role. The photoshoot of the couple is not the only imporant moment for a wedding photographer anymore. Also the photo’s of the styling and beautiful ambience photo’s became more and more important.
To meet this demand, Roos, with her company Tuscany loves Weddings and Sonja & Milos with the company Funkybird, are joining forces to offer the complete package. Our services are specifically aimed at those couples, who wants to get a little more out of their Tuscan dstination wedding.
Sonja - Wedding design
After having worked for one of the most famous flower shops in Florence for a number of years, the dream of a flower shop was a logical consequence. In 2010 I opened the doors of Funkybird, the first Dutch flower shop in the center of Florence. Due to the enormous success of Tuscany Loves Weddings, I decide in 2012 to close my shop forever. Since then I devote myself entirely to wedding design. Meanwhile, I have more than 15 years of experience with flower arranging.
Milos - Wedding Photographer
I have been taking care of the wedding photography for most of the weddings organized by Tuscany loves Weddings. Due to years of experience together and a very good cooperation, every couple has great benefits and give my photos an extra dimension. I already have many publications on my resume. For example, my works have been published on the most important weddingblogs such as: Style me Pretty, Wedding Chicks and Burnet Boards. All pictures on the website of Tuscany loves Weddings are made by myself, unless otherwise stated.
Roos - Wedding planner
Through my website about Florence, I have helped many couples with the bureaucracy regarding civil weddings in Italy. Gradually the idea to help future couples with the organization of their entire wedding began to grow. And that is how Tuscany loves Weddings was born . After meeting Sonja in her flowershop while writing a city guide for a Dutch publisher, the Tuscany loves Weddings team was soon complete. In the meanwhile i have organized over 120 weddings and my passion for this wonderful job is only growing. Meeting couples from all over the world and being part of their wedding day / weekend is just amazing and i feel really lucky and thankful i can be part of this.

As a wedding planner I strive for a casual romantic wedding. A day organized to perfection that seems to come about spontaneously. Where not the clock, but the moment decides, when it is time for; the aperitif, the dinner, that nice anecdote or speech and last but not least, the fantastic party! In short, a Tuscan wedding to never forget.

Decoration details, the sunlight that filters through the clouds, the aperitif at the pool. A spontaneous laugh or embrace. These are the important elements for me during your wedding day. Details of the sunlight filtering through the clouds, the poolside cocktail, a spontaneous smile or embrace. All of these elements are important
