Ravello and its private villas, the perfect setting for your wedding.
Considered to be simply an unimportant backdrop until the '70s, the location for the most important day of a couple’s lives has, over the years, become increasing more important if not crucial. To date, the wedding location is no longer merely the place where we witness the wedding festivities, it is now a real feature of the day framing the happy event and becoming an element that is not to be undervalued. Ravello the perfect setting for the wedding of your dream.
Beyond the concise idea of marriages being celebrated in the name of an abundant wedding menu, now wedding couples, and not only the couple themselves, have finally realized that the location can and should be a place where everyone, guests included, can live the all encompassing emotion of the wedding, sure it will remain imprinted in their memories. In order to make this experience magical, we must consider what nature offers us.
There are certain settings, where only the smallest amount of work is necessary to make them perfect for a wedding. The colours and ambience of these locations offer a wonderful advantage to a wedding photographer’s lenses when capturing the emotional, once in a lifetime moments of that day.
Without a doubt, the Amalfi Coast offers absolutely every element that so far I’ve only hinted at.
The ‘jewel in the crown’ is undoubtedly the town of Ravello, ‘nearer to the sky than to the sea’, which dominates the coastline from a stirring height of 350 meters above, and offers breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Gulf of Salerno. The vivid blue of the sea against the bright colors of this charming town and those of the mountains in the background, create an utterly charming contrast on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Italy.
Thanks to its unique Arabic-Sicilian beauty, Ravello has always attracted characters of great cultural and intellectual artistic importance and, not surprisingly, Wagner described it as ‘a place that until then had existed only in his imagination’. Ravello has all the elements necessary to celebrate your wedding in a romantic and refined atmosphere, full of colours and traditions. Every corner of this small and lovely town has much to offer. Walking through its streets you discover the wonders of the town, the noble palaces, cloisters, fragrant and colourful gardens, the friendliness of its people and their care and dedication to guests and tourists, a tradition that has very deep roots in Ravello.
Ravello’s extraordinary and enchanting villas are ideal for the wedding reception of your dreams.
Villa Rufolo - A combination of unique and exceptional Arabic, Sicilian and Norman architecture, has a lush 19th Century garden, full of exotic plants and trees and other hanging gardens framed by a spectacular view of the sea. In this 13th Century villa on the day of your wedding you’ll be surrounded by a magical atmosphere and transported back to ancient times.
Wedding at Villa Cimbrone – ‘I was asked by an American magazine, which was the most beautiful place I had ever seen in all my travels and I replied: the view from the Belvedere at Villa Cimbrone on a bright winter day’. This is the emotional impression the sight of this extraordinary Ravello villa made on Gore Vidal. Commissioned by a whimsical English Lord in the 20th Century, a large and overgrown piece of land was thus transformed into a villa of incomparable beauty. Statues, inscriptions, fountains, temples and natural caves enrich the villa, creating a perfect combination of different styles and periods.
The flowering gardens with their colourful pathways end at the Belvedere dell’Infinito, a large terrace overlooking the sea, and the only one of its kind. In the exclusive and incomparable setting of Villa Cimbrone your wedding is sure to be an unforgettable event.
