“Exceptional Experience and even better service” Omari and Victroia - Mario Capuano, Enrico Capuano & Annamaria Staiano with Wagner Tours are extraordinary at planning, making and commemorating unbelievable wedding experiences. But more importantly, they are great people who care about how and why they do what they do. We would have been lost without their guidance, expertise and attention to detail. We are forever gratefully for the lifelong memories they helped us create and were happy to share some of those moments with them. Simply, there are no other options when planning any sort of event in the Amalfi Coast; Mario, Annamaria and Enrico are the best at what they do and you will never be disappointed. Mario, Annamaria and Enrico we cannot say thank you enough!
Wagner Tours was recommended to us through a friend when we decided we wanted an Italian wedding. We visited the Amalfi coast August 2015 and Wagner tours far exceeded any other operator we met with. Mario and Anna-Maria have been brilliant from start to finish, keeping me and my now husband on track with paperwork requirements to the running of the day, decorations and finishing touches. They were always a pleasure to deal with and I completely trusted Mario and the team with our big day. We got married on September the 17th 2015 and it was beyond any of our expectations. It was so beautiful and we were totally blown away (as were the guests). The day flowed and Mario and the team took all of the stress away so we could enjoy every minute. Enrico Capuano was our photographer and was fantastic (with a degree in photography I’m pretty fussy) he captured the day beautifully and just made us feel totally comfortable. Food, flowers, DJ etc were all brilliant, I cannot recommend Wagner tours enough. If you're a bride (or groom) thinking of booking your wedding with Mario - do it, i can guarantee you will have the time of your life :-) - Karen and Chris
Mario, Annamaria, Enrico , You completely surpassed every dream we had of having a beautiful wedding in Ravello. The wedding day that you planned for us was the happiest day of my life. Not only were you a cheerful devoted and supportive voice during the planning process but you created a day that ran so seamlessly and smoothly. We could never have imagined our day going as perfectly as it did. We and our families are absolutely ecstatic with the results. We all had such an outstanding day. I would recommend you to anyone from anywhere wanting to have the best wedding planned in Ravello, and I am proud to now call you my italian friends.April and Michael
“ Eloping to Ravello with Wagner Tours wedding and weddings ” by Steve and Jodie My wife and I were married in Ravello last month and I have to say things went absolutely perfectly thanks to Mario, Annamaria and Enrico.We always said that we wanted an intimate wedding with just the 2 of us somewhere romantic and that's exactly what we got. In March this year we decided that we were going to bring our wedding forward by a year. We were keen on the Amalfi coast and had heard lots of good things about Ravello. After looking into Ravello and deciding it was the perfect location, we were recommended Wagner Tours via someone on Twitter...I'll have to find that person and thank them for the recommendation!When you think about getting married abroad, one of the main concerns is the hassle in ensuring the paperwork is correct, correct location, correct meal, flowers etc etc...Don't worry, Mario and Annamaria take all of this hassle away from you. They made it so easy for us and were extremely helpful throughout the whole processes. Wagner tours were a joy to deal with and also very nice people as well, which helps! The wedding day itself went off without a glitch (apart from a small panic with the wedding dress), hotel was great, flowers were great, Enrico Capuano ( talented professional photographer ) doing the photography is really nice and helpful, the setting for the wedding was amazing, drinks in the square, the meal after..superb...come with an empty stomach! Ravello really is a beautiful place, the atmosphere there is also lovely, with really friendly people who live there and visit. We cant wait to go back soon! Another great thing worth mentioning with Ravello is its location. Although it is high up it is situated between lots of other places worth seeing such as Minori, Amalfi, Pompeii etc. Mario and the team were excellent in arranging trips out to these places and I would thoroughly recommend getting out and about while you are there. Its totally personal preference but I wouldn't bother staying in Naples if I was you. A big thank you at the whole team at Wagner for making our wedding perfect and completely hassle free, we really do appreciate everything. Hopefully we will be back soon once the baby is old enough to travel!x
“ Wedding of Tony and Tracy Belli ” After deciding on getting married in Italy, we were looking on the internet to decide where to go when we fell upon a beautiful village on the Amalfi coast called Ravello. We were going to organise our very small and intimate wedding ourselves (just the two of us and our mums), when we saw the Testimonials of Wagner Tours we decided to contact Mario. Mario Capuano and Anna Maria Staiano freed me from my nerves of getting married in another country and led us through the legal obligations without a single hitch. The day was perfect. It began with a recommended hairdresser Gerardo, who is very professional and a real character. When the photographer Enrico Capuano (Mario's son) and videographer Pier C arrived my mum and I were immediately put at ease. We were totally relaxed in their company. They were taking photographs but were also our guides, we just seemed to get where we were supposed to be when we were supposed to be there laughing and joking and talking the whole time. They are the perfect team with a real passion for what they do. We had a party the week after we arrived home and the guests were unhappy at the thought of not seeing our wedding photographs so Enrico very kindly put the raw unedited version on a USB drive for us to show our guests. I cant wait to see the edited version, I know it will be beautiful as the raw version is extremely good.I think we should also mention the guitar and mandolin players, Tony and Claud. They were always in the background and their beautiful music was so romantic and it would not have been the same without them. We highly recommend Wagner Tours for your wedding. (They do great day trips too). Hopefully they will remember us when we pop in to see them next year for our first year anniversary. Grazie un million a tutti voi bella gente a Wagner Tours!
“The most perfect day...” Rosanna & Steven .We have just returned home from the most amazing week in Italy for our wedding. I can honestly say the whole day went perfectly and will be one we will remember for the rest of our lives. None of it would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of Mario Capuano and his team, Annamaria Staiano and Enrico Capuano. From the start, Mario was extremely helpful and gave us clear ideas of the costs involved. Mario was very quick to respond to all my emails and provided us with lots of recommendations for hair, make-up etc ( all of wish I was extremely pleased with on the day).Annamaria is so lovely! She helped to ensure the day run to plan and decorated our tables exactly how we envisaged them.Ravello itself is in the perfect backdrop for a wedding. All of our guests commented on how utterly amazing the views are. We had our reception at Villa Eva which again cannot be faulted! The food was exceptional.Enrico is an amazing photographer and from the few shots he showed us on the day, I know that our wedding photos will be stunning. We would highly recommend Wagnar Tours to anyone who is thinking of getting married in Ravello. It was the best decision we ever made!!
“ Dream Wedding Vow Renewal in Magical Ravello” Terry and Ralph Spina We have been traveling to the Amalfi Coast every summer for the past 10 years. It is a very special place to our family so it was definite that we wanted to have our 25th anniversary vow renewal there. We chose Ravello, as the views are exquisite and very romantic. We were very fortunate in having Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and Enrico Capuano ( the photographer ) help make our day truly special. We had a beautiful and intimate ceremony at the Villa Eva and a perfect dinner at the Villa Maria. We had a mandolin and guitar player at our ceremony that was wonderful. Having our friends and family there to share this time with us was truly special for us. It will be a day that we will hold in our hearts forever! Thank you so much Mario, Annamaria and Enrico
“Dream wedding” Dear readers, my name is Olga and this year I got married to the best man in the world in the best venue you could ever imagine. I'm originally from Russia and my husband is from the USA and we wanted to arrange our special day somewhere in between. I was searching for lots of places but one of our friends advised us to go to Ravello. Me and my husband have never been to Italy before, so it was rather challengeable to find the venue and to deal with all these arrangements on our own so we started searching for a wedding planner. I got in contact with several agencies and I can tell you the following- it's either super expensive or just very expensive and plus you have a feeling that you don't understand anything about payments. But thanks to trip advisor I found Wagnertours agency. Number one thing that we liked is a very detailed spreadsheet that included all the expenses and it was really cheaper then others and we felt like they really knew what they were doing. We skyped with Mario and he answered all our questions. Believe me we had lots of difficulties with all the paperwork that we dealt in the USA so we had lots of questions and we were not sure about the date so we had to postpone it several times and Mario adjusted everything very fast and really helped us with all that. We booked villa Eva...When we finally got to Ravello and I saw this villa for the first time I was crying because all the pictures that you might have seen are absolutely nothing to do with reality... Because in reality it's even more beautiful , truly like a fairy tale and way beyond your expectations!!! The view, the villa, the yard with flowers, tables, dining/reception area... You need to see that in person! Trust me.I had some problems with the hotel where I stayed but in several hours they fixed the problem and I finally got the room that I liked. Btw Wagner tours kindly gave us a free night in this hotel! The Wagner tours team was very pleasant and nice. They managed almost all my ideas and wishes.I would also like to say that Mario advised us a photographer who was really nice and we got a lot of pictures. He is young, easygoing photographer who's name is Enrico. I felt relaxed and comfortable when he started working. I haven't seen them on the high quality in cd yet, but he sent me a link with low quality pictures so that I could look them through and I truly enjoyed them.there were lots of good shots As for the make up artist I also had Adele. Just to let you know - it's gonna be expensive to have a hair stylist and make up artist in Amalfi anyways! And don't feel uncomfortable with her prices cause her service is not more expensive than anywheres else in Amalfi. Actually it's cheaper than some other make up artists. I wasn't sure that I will take her, because I put my make up on by myself very well, but after my trial I realized that it worths it. She was really good.I'm generally very happy with my wedding of my dream. Mario and his team arranged beautiful reception area, called very good DJ for after reception party and all my friends were dancing like crazy because the dj had awesome playlist. Af course it's always hard to say that everything was absolutely perfect, but it's for me because I'm super demanding person. There were some small details that I didn't like, for example the music during the reception sometimes didn't start in time after people were making speeches. And another thing deals with my Russian roots. I got used to the fact that there is always a host in our weddings who manages the crowd and tell constantly people what is going on and what we gonna do next during the reception. I know that in American style people just have fun and do whatever they want. But I got lots of comments like "where are we going? Where and when should we do that and this" because that's what Russian guests expected. And the last thing was that I wanted sparklers and I couldn't transport them from Russia and I asked for them and expected that my guests will get them at the wedding. Mario managed to find them last minute but there were few of them and not everybody could have them. So I'm pretty sure that lots of people wouldn't mind to have them at their wedding so my advise is to buy lots of them in advance ;p. I think that's it as for the things that I wasn't too happy about. But you never remember that in the end! And personally us (me and my husband) we are very satisfied with the work of Wagnertours and we would like to thank them once again and wish them prosperity and good clients! We had the best wedding ever that we will never forget! I just wish We could repeat everything.
“ Our amazing wedding in Ravello” We recently got married in Ravello in August the year. It was the most amazing day and was all thanks to Mario Capuano our wedding planner, Annamaria Staiano and Enrico Capuano our photographer. We had visited twice before our wedding and each time felt like we were already part of the Ravello family. All I can say is that Mario and Annamaria are superb in everything that they do. It's difficult when you live in a different country and you are trying to organise your wedding via e mail, but there was no need to worry. The contact via e mail from both Mario and Annamaria was exceptional. For both myself and my now husband and our guests, nothing was too much trouble. They both guided us through what should happen each month in the run upto the wedding to ensure we didn't leave ourselves with lots of last minute arrangements. We were kept up to date on costs and information so nothing ever came as a surprise. We organised a band from the UK to play for us and although we thought this may be quite difficult logistically, a couple of Skype calls and everything was soon sorted including any equipment we needed. From the Town Hall Garden to the venue for the wedding breakfast, the flowers, catering and everyone behind the scenes involved in our wedding preparation, we couldn't have asked for more. And that's not forgetting the pizza party the evening before which was a great success. One thing we can honestly say is that if you want your dreams to come true, then Mario and Annamaria will make that happen for you. They are truly special people and we can't thank them enough for everything they did to create such special memories for us. We have made such special friends in Ravello and look forward to seeing them again when we return. Much love Kay and Paul
“Amazing and wonderful wedding '' Wagner Tours are just fantastic!”From the first email to Mario Capuano, we knew that we wanted the team at Wagner Tours to plan our special day. We contacted Mario on a recommendation from another couple who had worked with him the year before on their own wedding and they assured us that he was the best there is. And that certainly was the case. Our day was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Everything was so beautifully organised by Mario and Annamaria Staiano (who thought of every special touch to add to the day). The planning was so easy and so organised. Mario contacted us when booking was required of all the major elements - flowers, the villa, the food, hair and makeup etc. There seemed to be nothing that they couldn't organise. And on the day our guests continuously commented how they had wanted for nothing and were entertained all day. We had our reception at Villa Eva and all the staff, food and music was just perfect. Our wonderful photographer was Enrico Capuano. Even in the particularly hot day on which we married he made us feel at ease and it resulted in beautiful, stunning photos. He has perfectly captured the atmosphere of the day and we couldn't have asked for more. Mario helped all of our guests to find accommodation and transfers and was very happy for them to email him to arrange details, which our guests appreciated hugely. It took the stress out of their travel - and there were 65 of them! We really can't speak highly enough of Wagner Tours. Our day and our time in Ravello was absolutely unforgettable and we would recommend them to everyone! We'll be back regularly to visit for anniversary trips! Carly and Marvin
“The perfect wedding! Forever grateful to Wagner Tours ” The number one question I’ve gotten over the past month since our wedding has been “how were you able to plan a wedding in Italy from the US?!” Most of our friends are shocked that we didn’t take a separate trip to scope out the venue and meet with the various vendors beforehand. To be honest, I had some reservations about whether I could pull off an Italian wedding – site unseen, but I had my heart set on getting married on the Amalfi Coast so I was willing to take the risk! ;) I first came across Wagner Tours on Trip Advisor and was so impressed by the endless number of rave Testimonials that I shot an email over to them to find out what they might be able to do with our preferred dates and budget. I heard back from Mario Capuano immediately with the most organized, comprehensive, clear and transparent overview - it was so refreshing! Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and Antonella Sooma are truly amazing at what they do. I will do my best to keep this review concise, but I really could go on all day about how great they are to work with. They were quick to respond to my (many) emails and always reassured me that they had it all under control – that I should just relax and enjoy my vacation! The team was true to their word and planned and oversaw every single detail of our wedding– including things I hadn’t even thought of myself. There was no request too big or too small for them to handle – they managed everything from finding hotel rooms for our guests to planning our rehearsal dinner and orchestrating every minute of our wedding day. Maybe one of the most important parts of any wedding is finding a great photographer who is fun to work with. We decided to go with Wagner Tours’ recommendation and hire Enrico Capuano – this was one of the best decisions we made. Enrico is young, enthusiastic and has a wonderful passion for photography. He is a joy to work with and takes absolutely stunning photos. THANK YOU ENRICO! Our wedding day was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for anything more beautiful and special. Our guests continue to compliment us on throwing such an exceptional wedding - many saying it was by far the best they had ever attended! All the credit goes to Mario Capuano and the Wagner Tours team. I am eternally grateful to Wagner Tours for our perfect day and for making wedding planning such an enjoyable experience for us. It really was the least stressful part of getting married! ;) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Lana and David.
“Our Wedding Day was perfect, BEST decision we have made!” Wagner tours were amazing from the outset. We recently returned from our wedding in Ravello organised by Mario Capuano of Wagner tours. The entire experience was made efficient and easy throughout, from the first contact to the wedding day itself. After initially outlining the small intimate wedding we wished for, Mario quickly used his vast knowledge and experience to suggest how he thought this could best be achieved and advised us on the legal and administrative procedures we would need to follow. We quickly set the ball in motion regarding the paperwork and in the meantime started to work with Mario on the details of the wedding. His extensive knowledge of the Ravello area was invaluable here, but you may expect this as Wagner tours are the only wedding planners in the town, a small intimate business working in the area they specialise! He offered suggestions but never pushed his own agenda including:Location of the ceremony: We chose the Town Hall gardens which overlooked the Amalfi coast – a perfect and beautiful setting. While these are public gardens, Mario and his team were very particular in ensuring that the ceremony was never encroached upon by the public, making our ceremony private and intimate. Flowers: I had my own ideas for the style of bouquet I wanted (and pin hole for my Husband). This was an arrangement style Mario had never used before, however this did not stop him from working with his expert florist to supply these despite the bouquet being different. Indeed, both the florist and Mario agreed these were a great match for the wedding and a style he would offer in the future. He listened to us and delivered! I could not stop looking at my flowers all day!Music: With only two of us at the wedding, we were not sure about whether to have music or not, but were very pleased to have followed Mario’s advice. We opted for his suggestion of two local guitar and Mandolin players (Tony and Claud) who would end up learning two new songs just for our day, which were delivered perfectly. We were absolutely over the moon to hear that Tony and Claud spent time learning a particular song for our day! Mario had previously explained that this couldn't be played due to them not knowing it, but, to our surprise it was played and made our day! - A beautiful touch - Thank you!! Photography: We used Mario’s Son Enrico Capuano, who on the day could not have been better. You can see all of his work on the internet, but his relaxed and friendly demeanour along with his fantastic photographic skills made us realise that, this too proved to be the scond best decision we'd made! Again, his local knowledge was superb, he knew many locations to shoot where out of town photographers would not even think to use - We are SUPER excited to see our photos from Enrico, we're grateful we were given the chance to have Enrico photograph our special day. He really is going places!! Dinner: Salvatore’s Tatore, the 7 course tasting menu was divine! A mix of local cuisine, with many fish courses was cooked and delivered in an outstanding location overlooking the beautiful coastline. Service and food was excellent and view was stunning. All in all a fantastic experience made easy by the superb Mario and amazing assistant Annamaria Staiano who’s enthusiasm and knowledge could not be beaten. We would highly recommend anyone wishing for an Amalfi wedding to use Wagner tours, particularly if planning on getting married in the beautiful town of Ravello! We can't thank you enough...thank you very much Mario and Team! #Teamravelloweddings :) Take care, Love to Paolina & Lola Hayley and Mark xxx
“Wonderful Wedding Celebration in Ravello” Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and the rest of their team helped us put on a perfect weekend for our Wedding party in June 2015. We fell in love with Ravello and decided to have our wedding in the town. Arranging a wedding abroad can be a difficult task but Mario was always quick to reply to our emails and many questions, kindly repeating himself when we had forgotten details! We had 80+ people at Villa Maria, which was gorgeous and needs little added to it to make it look beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing and incredibly impressive by "wedding food" standards. We used Enrico Capuano as our photographer. Enrico takes his work seriously and has a good eye and made us feel relaxed in front of the camera. In the run up to our special day, Mario and Annamaria also helped us to organise a "Pizza Party" welcome evening which was great fun and also a day trip to Positano. We'd give Wagner Tours 6 stars if we could.
My best wedding ever! (Villa Eva Ravello)” In 2014 I was proposed and we decided to get marry in Ravello. In June me met Mario Capuano from Wagner Tours and we decided that Wagner Tours could help us to settle everything for us. In the months before the wedding we had close email contact with the Wagner team about the ceremony, food, drinks, DJ, make-up artist, photographer ( Enrico Capuano ), wedding cake.... Wagner Tours took all the stress that normally comes with a wedding, away. Finally we married on June 20th 2015. I had no stress at all. My bridesmaids and me looked gorgeous (thanks to the hairdressers and makeup artist) and the wedding locations was perfect decorated. Our guest where totally stunned about the view, locations and the quality of the food and after 3 weeks they still talk about it. I realize I couldn't have done this without Mario, Annamaria and Enrico from Wagner Tours.
“Amazing Wedding in Ravello!” Alyssa and Leonard Back in May we had a symbolic ceremony in Ravello with the help of Mario and Annamaria. My family and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They were great at communicating back and forth leading up to the wedding and meeting with us prior to the wedding to go over the details. I knew that planning a wedding from afar could potentially be very stressful, but it turned out to be so easy because of Mario's hard work. On the day of the wedding I was very concerned that our experience would be ruined because of thunderstorms, but they were absolutely fantastic in making sure that the wedding was still a success! Mario knew just what to do and I didn't have to worry at all while getting ready with my bridesmaids. Enrico Capuano ,our photographer, was a blast to hang out with and work with throughout the wedding. He knew just what to say to help calm my nerves when trying to make it over to the ceremony during the storm. We had a wonderful time wandering through Ravello in the rain and making memories that will last forever. Mario, Annamaria, and Enrico we just want to say a huge thank you for all your help and support in making our wedding day amazing. We highly recommend Wagner tours if you are looking for a romantic wedding in an unforgettable location that your friends and family will be talking about for years to come!
“ Michelle & Dave's Wedding ”After months of searching for the ideal wedding venue in the UK we decided to look further afield and searched the web for wedding planners in Italy. We visited Mario Capuano and his assistant Annamaria Staiano in 2013 as he had fantastic Testimonials on trip advisor. Mario spent the morning with us showing us venues etc, this prompted us to make the decision to use his service for our wedding 2 years later. Throughout the 2 years his team kept in touch and even prompted us when we forgot to do something! Mario also assisted in arranging accommodation, transportation for our guests, floral arrangements, hairdressers and photographs by Enrico Capuano and his assistant Gianni Coppola. Now to the big day, we exchanged our vows in the town hall gardens overlooking the Amalfi coast and then proceeded (escorted by mandalin and guitar players) to the town square where we were served cocktails and canapés. We then moved on to the fantastic Villa Eva for the reception where our guests were overwhelmed by the venue and views. A 5 course dinner was served and then onto the disco until 2.30am. Overall Wagner Tours made our day a pleasure for us and our guests, we cannot thank them enough.Next Page
