Here at Gianni Di Natale Photographers, we adore looking back at our wedding collection full of sensational celebrations, and Ksenia and Aaron’s is one that immersed us into a place of glamour and magic. Heading over to Ravello, this beautiful couple chose to tell their tale of love at Villa Cimbrone, a venue nestled in the jagged rocks of the Amalfi Coast that peers over the Mediterranean ocean. It was a day filled with romance, happy tears and love. Join us as we take a look back at this exquisite event…
As the wedding day arrived, we were fortunate enough to be graced with the classic Amalfi Coast golden sunshine. The preparation was well underway at Villa Cimbrone, with the bride and her closest loved ones popping champagne and chatting excitedly about the day ahead. Ksenia began getting ready with the talented Beauty Livery applying the most radiant make up and soft curls that cascaded elegantly down her back. The bride stepped into her first outfit, a unique fitted gown that was embellished all over with crystals, pearls and finished with a feather boarder. The look was perfected with a veil made from the finest Italian silk and a sensational necklace that sat gracefully on the neckline. The groom looked equally as dashing as he illuminated his sophisticated style in an all-black tuxedo, complemented with a bow tie.
The couple chose to hold their ceremony at The Tea Room, a secluded garden nestled within the grounds of Villa Cimbrone. The aisle was adorned with sensational ivory roses and green foliage, creating a whimsical summer feel. Armando Malafronte had also created a magnificent floral archway brimming with romance, the perfect backdrop to say their ‘I do’s’. The newlyweds exchanged their vows, and as I glanced around, I could see the guests’ eyes full of happy tears and joy. As they exchanged their first kiss as newlyweds, everyone jumped to their feet and applauded, it was a wonderful moment.
Ksenia, Aaron and their guests made their way to the iconic Belvedere Terrace and well-manicured gardens for the drink’s reception. I took this moment to seize the newlyweds for a couple of intimate shots within the grounds of Villa Cimbrone. However, not before Ksenia had an outfit change into a mini dress adorned with sparkles that shined off the Amalfi Coast sunset. The couple were the picture of happiness which was a pleasure to capture.
The newlyweds chose to dine alfresco with their favourite people and the tablescape set up was breath-taking. Perfectly planned by The Amalfi Experience, the scene was elegant, romantic and iconic. The tables were adorned with vases that overflowed with ivory blooms and candles that twinkled in the night sky, complemented with a crystal chandelier that hung gracefully above them. A runway had been personalised with Ksenia and Aaron’s initials which led to a sweetheart table that had a floral archway backdrop; it was an unforgettable vision, one that would be spoken about for time to come. The couple and their guests enjoyed traditional Italian cuisine as they reminisced about what a magical day it had been.
Ksenia had one final attire change into a charming mini gown embellished with glitter, then everyone was ready to hit the dancefloor. The sky above was star encrusted and the atmosphere was electric. The newlyweds and their guests toasted to love and an unforgettable day. It was a celebration that would be remembered, and I had so much joy capturing the images that would allow them to transport back in time to this beautiful bash.
A huge thank you to Ksenia and Aaron for allowing me to be part of your love story, it was an honour. Our diaries are open for 2024/25 so welcome you to get in touch to see how Gianni Di Natale Photographers can be part of your tale of love.
