From Australia, Ashley and George have opted for an elegant and romantic wedding in Ravello, so as to spend a week’s holiday with their family and closest friends, rather than having one big party.
He is involved in the digital marketing sector and singer in a rock band, she with her own fashion brand, Ashley and George are a very creative and interesting couple … it was a real pleasure to be part of their world for a day. .
The timeless elegance of Villa Cimbrone
When we asked Ashley and George why they had chosen Villa Cimbrone as their wedding venue in Ravello, they motivated their choice for the charm and timeless elegance of this Villa.
And – indeed – we must recognize that Villa Cimbrone is a timeless place. Its wonderful gardens, the sculptures that have found a perfect frame there, the elegant and refined interiors, make Villa Cimbrone one of the most desirable locations for romantic and elegant weddings here on the Amalfi Coast.
And, on board of his swimming pool surrounded by the green of the surrounding gardens, we met George, in the company of his best men. It was enough to see them arrive in a white bathrobe to understand that we would have had a lot of fun that day.
And they too.
Of course, they dived, fought in the water, laughed, drank, toasted … and they jokingly involved us in this unexpected poolside pre-wedding!
Moody shades for a romantic wedding in Ravello
While George was relaxing in the pool, Ashely had entrusted herself to the care of Alessandro Mancino and his make-up and hairstyle team, in the company of the people closest to her. The atmosphere was very relaxed and pleasant.
In line with the timeless charm of Villa Cimbrone, Ashley opted for a romantic and elegant look, preferring the natural shades of champagne and nude for both the dress and the accessories. She wore a dress from the collection of Madison James, characterized by a bodice worked in shades of Champagne, nude and silver. The transparent side bands of the bodice give this dress with a wide satin skirt an extra touch in terms of elegance and romance.
The hair gathered in a soft hairstyle completed with a diadem that recalled the motifs of the bodice, a very natural and luminous make-up, at the feet of the elegant shoes in shiny champagne-colored satin, completed her look enhancing her harmonious forms and her beauty.
Finally, the bouquet created, along with the rest of the floral decorations, by the Armando Malafronte team: a wonderful composition of white “spray” roses, classic roses, dahlias and moody shades in burgundy peonies, with the outline of eucalyptus leaves.
The same moody shades were taken in a very refined way by George’s outfit, definitely inspired by his Scottish origins: an elegant forest green dress paired with the Scottish family tie and romantic buttonhole.
The spectacular panorama of Villa Cimbrone for an unforgettable evening
Ashley and Goerge met for the ceremony in one of the beautiful gardens of Villa Cimbrone, overlooking one of the most evocative views of the Amalfi Coast.
A few chairs, a carpet of white petals and the olive tree the setting of this ceremony entirely focused on the intense emotions that accompanied the ritual. To accompany the bride’s entrance and the highlights of the ceremony, the sweet notes of the violin played by Ashely’s younger brother.
After the ceremony, hugs and joyful smiles, we all walked along the Avenue of the Infinite, up to the lookout terrace; we then stole Ashely and George for a few minutes from the company of their guests to delve into the wonders of Villa Cimbrone, its flower gardens and the corners of lush vegetation.
We then reunited with those present in the same charming garden that hosted the ceremony. Here, in fact, under an intimate gazebo, an imperial table had been set up, with floral decorations that recalled Ashley’s bouquet and transparent glass candelabras, to maintain a simple, elegant and timeless line.
After the delicious dinner, the small and close-knit group of friends and family let themselves go to an amusing dance party, during which the intimately rock soul of George and his wonderful bride came out in his splendor.
