Caroline and Stuart, Ravello, July 2016
Caroline and Stuart married on a hot, sunny day in July in the magical town of Ravello on the Amalfi Coast surrounded by a large group of family and friends.
Their ceremony took place in the incredibly romantic Giardini della Principessa di Piemonte which offers the most incredible background scenery. The gardens were picture perfect, featuring two stunning urns set against the incredible scenic backdrop and a fresh petal aisle carpet. During the ceremony, Caroline and Stuart's son Craig stepped up without fear to give a wonderful reading which brought a tear to everyone's eye!
Following the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a prosecco reception in the main square, giving Caroline and Stuart an ideal opportunity to walk through the through the small picturesque streets of Ravello with their very talented photographer Francesco Quaglia, to capture the most incredible wedding photography in the most picturesque spots.
The wedding reception was held at Villa Eva, a magnificent villa in a late liberty style set in an incredible panoramic location overlooking the sea. On the walk from the main square to the Villa, guests were accompanied through the characteristic cobbled streets up to the Villa by a traditional guitar and mandolin in true, authentic Italian style!
Guests were greeted at the Villa on the incredible 'Belvedere Edge' and enjoyed welcome drinks and canapés, whilst admiring the breath-taking view and incredibly tended gardens.
Dinner soon followed in the marquee and everyone was wowed by the immense wedding banquet. The tables were decorated with stunning floral centrepieces and little bottles of limoncello as favours for the guests. Speeches came post dinner and then everyone moved to enjoy the rest of the evening, the cutting of the cake and drinks and dancing to a DJ under the twinkling, magical lights of the trees in the outside gardens.
Victoria says : From the very initial phone call I had with Caroline we got on so incredibly well and I feel blessed to have made in her a wonderful friend. Caroline and Stuart are a very special couple and I am so privileged to have helped plan their special day and grateful for them choosing me as their wedding planner here in Italy. I'm looking forward to meeting up with them again and of course Craig too, for celebratory anniversary drinks in Ravello!
