“Our Wedding Day was perfect, BEST decision we have made !” from Hayley and Mark 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 Principessa di Piemonte 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!!
Intimate ceremony in a private villa overlooking the Amalfi coast - a dream is getting place . We have spent years to be ready for your Wedding Day !!! Our assistance is starting with your first email and as you can see from the photos, I will be in front of you ... for your '' I do '' ... and I will be happy to declare '' You are husband and wife.. congratulations ''
Photography: We used 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: Tatore Restuarant , 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.
A magical Day for a lovely couple. All the details by Annamaria Staiano, event coordinator Wagner Tours Team
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 and Lola Hayley and Mark xxx
