I’ve eagerly been waiting for the next time I’m going to plan the next Villa Cimbrone wedding, one of the gorgeous locations I’ve visited in the past. An enchanted wedding venue, among the most beautiful in the whole world, high above the Amalfi Coast with a commanding and unique landscape.
Many have described this unique spot as “a place kissed by God.”. As soon as you get to Ravello, you stop in your tracks in awe. Each of the towns on the Amalfi coast has its own vibe.
This historic venue just captures you: the past is left intact, and its gardens have been redesigned with the most exquisite flowers you can imagine, enriched with mini temples, a myriad of ornaments, bronze and stone statues, and pavilions that have been the backdrop for Greta Garbo’s romantic Italian holidays.
The villa has all the perfect elements to add an extra factor of romance and magic to your big day. So, if Italy is on your list of potential destinations to exchange vows, below are a few venues that capture the essence of a luxury Italian wedding.
This seaside villa is one of the most illustrious 5-star hotels in the entire Mediterranean.
Its grandeur and the surroundings are astonishing, and you can grasp its history. 12th-century original architectural features are still intact and protected.
Villa Cimbrone wedding venue is a private property, but its gardens are open to the public because it has the most breath-taking sight on the Amalfi Coast.
The villa’s Infinity Terrace has a panoramic view of the cliffs (looking right down is not for the faint of heart!), where some marble busts are displayed right on the terrace edges.
The terrace could be the glamorous setting for your welcome drinks at your wedding in Ravello, from where your guests could admire the blue sky above and the gleaming azure waters.
Booking your stay for your Villa Cimbrone wedding is a real treat! The hotel rooms are steeped in history, and the restoration is impeccable, with frescoed ceilings that are tastefully furnished and beautifully decorated.
But what sets this hotel apart from other villas in the surrounding area is the exceptional grounds of the Belvedere and the unobstructed view of the sea.
It’s no wonder so many future brides and grooms have set eyes on this venue during their Italian holiday, with numerous couples actually having their elopement here or proposal of marriage during their stay.
The private and tranquil garden’s setting gives your exclusive wedding ceremony and reception a palatial atmosphere. You can hold your symbolic or religious ceremony (protestant or Jewish marriages have legal validity). But you can’t have Catholic or civil service.
Your wedding reception dinner can be held in the sumptuous ancient crypt, suitable for a small number of guests. It’s architectural features make it the perfect setting for an intimate wedding, and it can be decorated and customised to your taste.
A larger reception and outdoor option is the UNESCO world heritage garden area There are, of course, different indoor reception options available in case of rainy weather, such as the stunning Events Hall and the more intimate Convention Hall, and opportunities to have your ceremony indoors.
