Wedding Perfection Our wedding in beautiful Ravello was like a dream. From the first e-mail to Mario Capuano we knew we were in good hands. Our wedding day was perfect. We met our photographer, Enrico Capuano, the morning of the wedding in the main square of Ravello, Enrico was wonderful. After the ceremony he took some photos throughout the Villa Rufolo and then we walked through the streets of Ravello and on the roof of the Villa Eva for some additional shots. The wedding day went so smoothly it was almost nerve racking! Every detail was taken care of by Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano. The splendor of the villa Eva where the reception was held cannot be described. The guests could not stop taking pictures of it trying to capture its beauty. The grounds were beautiful and everything was in bloom. The food was superb and the staff very pleasant. The hours seem to float by and it was hard to say good-bye as we left to go back to our hotel. It was a wonderful day.Thank you Mario for making our wedding day most memorable and care free. We have and will continue to recommend you to everyone who asks about getting married in Ravello. Victoria and Daniel
“Wedding Perfection!”From our very first enquiry all the way through to our wedding itself, we could not have asked for a better experience. Mario Capuano and his wonderful team (Annamaria Staiano, Enrico Capuano and Antonella Somma) went above and beyond to ensure that our special day was perfect. Throughout the lead up to the wedding, Mario and Annamaria were always available to answer any questions that we had in a friendly and efficient manner. Their competence and wealth of experience shone through from the very start so we knew that on the day we could leave everything in their capable hands and not have to worry about a thing. They took the time and care to understand exactly how we wanted our wedding to be and went out of their way to make special arrangements and ensure that everything was just as we had hoped. Mario's son Enrico is an extremely talented photographer, whose knowledge of the local scenery makes for fantastic photographs. Both Enrico and his assistant, Antonella, quickly put us at ease in front of the camera and they captured every moment of our day beautifully. We really cannot recommend the location of Ravello, the setting of Villa Eva and the expertise of Wagner Tours enough and we are so thankful to everyone who had a part in making our wedding day so wonderful. Louise & Robert
“Beyond any dream...” Wagner Tours really are the BEST Wedding Planners ever!!! When we visited Ravello in 2012 we fell in love with town and decided one day we would marry there. When my 'now' husband proposed to me in 2013 we knew the location but had no idea on the exact details. After scouring the internet we came across Wagner Tours and after reading all the amazing Testimonials decided we would use them to help plan our big day. What can I say? They did not disappoint! From the minute I sent the enquiry email to Mario Capuano it was nothing but professionalism. He made our lives as easy as they possibly could be for two people planning an overseas wedding. Any question I had, however big or small was always answered promptly and with a detailed answer. I never imagined planning a wedding could be so stress free, but Mario made it this way. I must say I was a little nervous about the Big Day. I am a little bit OCD and had in my mind exactly what I wanted for the day and having never visited the Villa Eva or Town Hall I was a little concerned as to whether we had made the right decision. But on our arrival and after meeting with AnnaMaria all these fears disappeared. She allowed us to visit the Villa before the big day which erased any nerves I had about the venue - it really is a BEAUTIFUL, breath taking place. Our Wedding Day from start to finish was exactly as I dreamed it would be. From the minute Enrico and Janny arrived in the room to take photos where I was getting ready they made me feel so relaxed and like a Princess. There were times I didn't even realise they were around I was that comfortable with them. The photographs truly are out of this world and so many of our friends and family have admired how they captured every last memory of the day. I cannot Thank Mario, Annamaria, Enrico Capuano ( the photographer)for making our Wedding Day as perfect as it was. It is a day we will hold in our hearts for the rest of our lives and Wagner Tours helped to make it beyond any dream!!!
“The Best Wedding Organisers in the World” Hi Everyone reading this,Anyone who's thinking of getting married anywhere in Italy, and is looking at this site for research purposes into whether they should consider using Mario and his team at Wagner Tours - let me save you hours, days or even weeks of work by telling you - YOU MUST BOOK YOUR WEDDING THROUGH MARIO CAPUANO!!!!!A short back history, just to set the scene - we are a young (ish!) couple from Ireland (late 20's and early 30's) who met Mario Capuano and Anna-maria Staiano on site visit when looking for the perfect venue about one and half years ago in Wagner tours. Just to add to this, I am a Hotelier from Ireland with family hotel for over 20 years who specialise in weddings. I say this only to give anyone reading this - additional assurance how amazing Mario and Anna Maria are!!!All I'll say is that everything you've read in previous accounts of the team, do not do them justice at all - as they are even better than everything you've read.Genuinely from the day we met Mario and Anna Maria, you couldn't have asked for anything more. Despite knowing how to organise an Irish wedding, inside out with my eyes closed and have all the contacts built up necessary to organise any Irish wedding, we'd not a clue what to do over in Italy and this is where Mario and Anna Maria were nothing short of spectacular.I had read all the previous tripadvisor Testimonials on how "Mario and Anna Maria reply to every email almost instantly", "are there throughout the entire day", "helps with everything" and to be honest thought to myself - no one can be this good and I was right - they're even better than this!!!!We got married in the Church in main square in Ravello with Don Giuseppe Impareto as our priest, again organised by Mario. Not only was the church so unbelievably special for us - Don Giuseppe quite literally was everything you could have ever hoped for. He is one of friendliest priests we've ever met and actually organised to do some of ceremony in Irish as surprise for us - amazing!!!! For anyone, worried about paperwork and legals - we totally suggest that you let Mario organise as he handled everything, walked us through the entire process and everything perfect. We have heard of others who didn't take this advice and thought they could do themselves but for the work needed, relative to how easy Mario made it for us - definitely let him do it as will be perfect.Mario and Anna Mario advised on every point of the day in advance including but not limited to accommodation, church, florists, music (both in the church, walking to the square and Dj for night - all of who were amazing and totally 100% special to our day). Again being honest, we considered saving the budget on some parts of this but in taking marios advice that he'd suggested - we said yes and asked him to sort. He said that this would add to the day - he was totally right and was amazing.Leading onto Villa Eva itself - all I can say is that you will struggle to find venue as good as it anywhere in the world. It again is a family run venue and the owner himself is so decent - he actually runs the bar on most nights of the event through to finish and keeps eye over everything. however, again coming back to Mario - he was there right up to 5am close helping, organising and making our day absolutely perfect. The head chef of Villa Eva should be phenomenally proud of themselves and their team as without shadow of doubt, one of the best wedding meals both we and our guests have ever had. I only wish some of the team worked closer to Belfast and could come and visit us for the day! On top of this, every member of the service team were better than the next and couldn't do enough to make our day amazing. Then leaving the best to last, Enrico Capuano and Janna our photographers. Mario had suggested due to our numbers (79 plus 5 babies) that we get 2 photographers and once again - he was totally right. Regardless of their photos which we've just received and can tell you that they are some of the most spectacular wedding photos we've ever seen, they were 2 of the most friendly, helpful, funny and relaxed people you'll ever meet. They shot the entire day with absolutely zero stress and captured the entire day (almost better) than it actually was - you must use these guys!In conclusion - both me & Rose and all our guests, genuinely cannot thank Mario and Anna Maria enough. They will do anything and everything for you (even the things you'll never think of). They met us on arrival at the start of our "holiday", on the morning of wedding, at the foot of steps to chapel, throughout the entire ceremony and every part of the evening celebrations.Not only did myself and Rose have the best day of our lives as a result of help, support and advice from Anna Maria and Mario - we've left with people who we'd totally call friends. We just hope to see you over in Ireland sometime soon and only hope, we can look after you 1/2 as well!!With all our Best -Rose and Gareth Macklin
“The Most Amazing Wedding Day!” - Bronwyn and David If you are looking for a spectacular, beautiful and memorable destination wedding, you need to contact Mario Capuano, Annamaria and the team at Wagner Tours. My husband Dave and I chose Mario and his team to plan and organise our wedding in Ravello on the 27th of September 2014 and we are so glad we did! Our wedding was perfect and it's all because of the professionalism, dedication and hard work of Mario and Annamaria. When we decided we wanted a destination wedding, we had no idea how to go about it or whether it was even possible to organise one form half way around the world in Australia. Then we found the Wagner Tours website. We were so impressed by the stunning photos and glowing Testimonials on the web page, that we emailed Mario for some more information regarding what was involved in a Ravello wedding and approximately how much it would cost. I had previously emailed third party wedding planners based in the UK about weddings in Italy or the Greek Islands and heard nothing back for days. Not with Mario. I received an email back within an hour followed by links to pages providing information on reception venues, accommodation, photography and flowers as well as a detailed spread sheet that outlined approximate costs for such things. What was even better was that Mario took into consideration our budget and provided suggestions that we could afford and offered us the best deal possible where he could.Planning the big day was easy thanks to the open communication between Mario, Annamaria and us. Any questions I had were promptly answered and anytime they needed information off me, it was clearly communicated and easy to provide. They not only gave us all the information we needed concerning the paper work we needed to obtain, but they also organised group excursions by bus to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast private boat tours for all of our guests. We cannot recommend these excursions enough. Both us and our guests were blown away by the value for money and quality of both the Pompeii tour and Coast boat trips booked through Wagner tours. They were incredible!When it came to our wedding day, we had nothing to worry about except getting to the beautiful gardens where we were to wed, on time. Mario and Annamaria took care of everything from setting up all of our requests for the ceremony and the reception. Everything was perfect and no request we made was too difficult for them. The ceremony was amazing - the violinist played beautifully, the location was phenomenal, the decorations were perfect. As interpreter for the ceremony, Mario ensured that the ceremony was light, yet entertaining, which made the ceremony and guests relaxed - which was what we were looking for. Following the ceremony we had a guitarist and mandolinist accompany us and our guests to the town square for a toast. Here the guests were able to drink and listen to the music while we had our wedding photos taken. While we were gone, the owner of the bar providing our drinks made an impromptu decision to join our musicians and sing some traditional Italian songs to our guests. We had not planned that and our guests said it was so entertaining and enjoyable to experience. It really set the mood for the wonderful festivities to follow at our reception venue, Da Tatore, later that evening.We have no hesitations in recommending Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and the team at Wagner Tours. They made our wedding and holiday an unforgettable experience and we have the photos of Enrico Capuano ( the amazing photographer) to prove it! Bronwyn and David
Karen and Gary We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank-you for all your help in making our wedding day in the lovely Ravello town hall garden perfect. All the planning/organising was made so much easier through contact with you by email, and we received very prompt response and good advise when booking everything (town hall/ hotel/transfers/ hairdresser/photographer/videographer/ flowers/ reception, etc.) We would also like to thank Annamaria who helped with our initial enquires, and Mario who was on hand on the big day to co-ordinate everything. Everything was just as we had hoped. The ceremony was lovely with Mario taking the ceremony in English. The photographer ( Enrico Capuano ) and videographer ( Pier Canta ) were both very professional (and extremely enthusiastic!) Everyone has commented on how professional the photos look, and we have all our memories now stored on DVD as well. We were very impressed with the food & service received at the reception. Thank you once again to everyone at Wagner Toursl for making our Ravello wedding dream go as smoothly as possible. We only hope that we can return to Ravello one day!
Helen and Oliver “The Best Wedding Planners Ever!”If you are looking for a wedding planner in Ravello, then look no further than Wagner Tours! Mario and his team organised every detail of our special day on %% June, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. It was perfect! We contacted Mario and a few other wedding planners in Ravello, but Mario gave the quickest and by far the most comprehensive initial response. From the very beginning we had a 100% confidence in Mario and his team and they have exceeded our expectations. Mario and his team work virtually all hours of the day and sometimes his email replies are instantaneous. He guided us through the wedding planning process – from the legal requirements, to when to sort the photographer, flowers, menu etc. He told us when we needed to finalise each detail and then sent a confirmation email for our records. He also sent an updated spreadsheet each time we had booked another element of the day so that it was crystal clear what we had and hadn’t booked (including costs). We popped into Mario’s office unannounced in June 2012 and were greeted with a very warm welcome. He dropped everything and gave us a tour around Ravello – hotels, reception venue and town hall gardens. It was clear that he knows most people in Ravello!! We saw another of Mario’s weddings in progress and sat out of the way watching from afar. Mario noticed us and brought over some beers for us. That sums up Mario’s warm service!On the day of our wedding (and in the week run up to our big day) – Mario was always on hand and nothing was too much trouble or left to chance. He and his team organised everything perfectly and the day ran so smoothly because of this. Even on the morning of the wedding they helped to sort out a few last minute details to make sure that we weren’t worried about anything. Mario has a great ability of always being there making sure that the day was running to plan but was never intrusive – he was on hand if you needed him but stayed in the background. He was there until the very end of our day – even on hand to eject a few wedding crashers who tried to sneak into our party!We got married in the Town Hall gardens. They were absolutely beautiful and the view was stunning. We would definitely recommend getting married in the Town Hall gardens as your guests will be amazed. The ceremony was lovely and Mario brought a bit of humour to the ceremony when he announced “you can now kiss the Bride” even though we had already kissed three times!!The walk from the Town Hall gardens to the square with the guitar and mandolin was incredible and Mario had arranged for drinks on the square which worked brilliantly. We had two photographers on the day – Janny and Enrico Capuano . Enrico put us at ease and we have seen a sneaky peak of a couple of his photos and they look incredible! We would definitely recommend having Enrico as your photographer. We can’t wait to see the rest of his photos.We had our reception at the beautiful Villa Eva. It looked absolutely fantastic and our guests were blown away by the venue and the views. The staff were incredibly attentive and really looked after us and all our guests. The food was the best food we have ever had - and we don’t just mean wedding food! The canapés were delicious and the food was always hot and portions very generous! Our wedding cake was beautifully decorated and tasted wonderful.One of our concerns about getting married abroad was that the personal touches would be overlooked. However, we couldn’t have been more wrong. Annamaria took care of everything – tying the tags on our limoncello favours, mounting the table plan, putting out the name cards, setting out our fingerprint tree and displaying photo boards that we had brought out with us in a beautiful way. The flowers also looked absolutely beautiful. We were always made to feel special by Mario and his team and like friends rather than clients. They always had time for us and made us feel special even though we know they were super busy planning other weddings. We can’t recommend them enough. Overall, it was the best day of our lives and we can’t thank the team at Wagner Tours enough! We will be back in a year’s time!From Helen and Oliver Morgan
James & Susan The stress of planning a wedding at home ( Uk) was beginning to get to us so we decided to look at the options of getting married abroad. Neither of us had ever been to Ravello before but had always planned to. I did a search for getting married in Italy and one of the websites that caught up my attention was Wagner Tours Wedding and Wedding .I contacted Mario and he replied almost immediately with various available locations. This contact remained consistent throughout the entire planning of our wedding, almost every day there was an e-mail waiting for us when we got home from work. Nothing was too much trouble for Mario and Annamaria ( assistant), he was more than happy to cater for our individual needs and requirements. Enrico Capuano our photographer was remarkable. I am not one for having photographs taken; in fact it’s one of the hardest things for me, but most of the time I did not notice Enrico working away. A very experienced professional who’s portfolio speaks for itself. We have no hesitations in recommending Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and the team at Wagner Tours. They made our wedding and holiday an unforgettable experience and we have the photos by photographer Enrico Capuano to prove it!
Ashley and Kevin, We want to sincerely thank you and your team for producing our spectacular wedding. Everyone always dreams of the perfect wedding, but our wedding in Ravello really was a dream come true. There were absolutely no problems, everything was on time and beautiful. Even the weather cooperated to make it a 'time of our lives' experience on the magnificent outdoor garden at the Ravello town hall. Everything was perfect from the flowers, the musicians at the ceremony and of course the evening reception and that fantastic cake. I would particularly like to thank you for organising the flowers which were just beautiful and for recommending Enrico Capuano the photographer, being photographed by him was certainly an experience we won't forget . We cannot Thank Mario, Annamaria and Enrico for making our Wedding Day as perfect as it was. It is a day we will hold in our hearts for the rest of our lives and Wagner Tours helped to make it beyond any dream!!!
Dear Mario Ravello was wonderful as we both new it would be. We love the area, and look forward to an opportunity to explore more of the Amalfi Coast. Enrico Capuano, our photographer was brilliant. He was very kind a patient while we tried to get the pose he wanted and also in allowing us to choose various poses and shots ourselves. We have never met a photographer who will allow someone to tell him what they wanted but Enrico was brilliant. The reception. I don't think we could have chosen a more splendid location than the Villa Eva. It is an amazing villa, and brought a fairytale end to the day. The views form the terrace alone were splendid. The staff were pleasant and courteous, and nothing was too much trouble. Finally, none of this could have happened if it wasn't for yourself and Annammaria . You offer a wonderful service which allows for a stress free build up to the wedding. We would like to thank everyone at Wagner Tours for making our day magical, but special thanks go to you, if any said to us that they were thinking of getting married in Italy, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending your services. We thank you again for all your help. Alison and James
Dear Mario, Annamaria ,Enrico and Pier We want to begin by thanking you for our very special day. It was perfect...the weather, the location, the people. Ravello is breathtaking. It i was the most beautiful setting to get married and the wonderful people who helped make our day so special will aways be in our hearts. Enrico Capuano and Pier Cant , the photographer and videographer. Let me tell you, these guys are the best , as so many people have viewed our phots and video and have all said that they have NEVER seen such amazing work! That is true, as the photos were absolutely breathtaking, and his imagination and talent to think of some shots that he did, is not your average photographer! They are so incredible. We have memories that we will treasure forever. Everything went smoothly and Annamaria was a great help. We couldn't have done any of it without your help and we thank you so much for everything. If anyone is ever contemplating getting married in Ravello and needs a company to help them, I would recommend you anytime! Matt and Jennifer ( Usa)
Dear Mario .Walter and I truly loved our wedding in Ravello! We are grateful for all of your advice, guidance, and hard work to make our day exactly how we envisioned it to be after months of planning. Working with you was a wonderful experience and we never worried considering we were thousands of miles away. Our wedding day was the most unforgetable, spectactular and memorable day of our lives and we could not have asked for anything more, the whole day was like a dream and one that will stay in our hearts from that day forward, forever. Karen and Walter
“Perfecto!!!” by Jenna & John Doig 5 out of 5 does not even come close to how fantastic Mario & Annamaria and all of the Wagner team are!!! Grazie Mille!!! We entrusted them to plan our very special day in Ravello and what they delivered was beyond our imagination and dreams! For certain it will be an experience that we and our family and friends will treasure forever. Nothing was a problem for team; any queries/requests we had were quickly answered/accommodated; and Mario was able to provide excellent guidance at every turn. We were lucky to be married inside the Municipio which was BEAUTIFUL and gave excellent photo opportunities; then a unique first toast in the town square...a MUST if you get married in Ravello; followed by an intimate italian feast at Da Tatore (spectacular views of the coast and the best food in Italy!) Special thanks to Annamaria for bringing our 'lemon grove' to life; to Enrico Capuano for capturing all the beautiful moments of our wedding; to Pier Canta for filming it all; to Luca and the chefs for most amazing meal we have ever had; to Pino the head waiter; to Alessandro for serenading us during our meal; DJ Alonso for keeping the party going and finally to Mario for bringing our dream and SO much more to life!!! Everything from the moment we arrived in Ravello was amazing...our wedding celebrations lasted the whole time we were there; and are were welcomed into the families we were lucky to meet! The experience Mario and his team provided was simply the best! They are the ONLY wedding planners to use for your special day! Well, what can we say more ?! Enrico Capuano was the BEST wedding photographer we could have ever dreamed of booking! His talents have not only captured our posed pictures perfectly but the beautiful moments that you don't realise any one is looking! We look forward to visiting for many years to come xxx - Jenna & John Doig
Noreen and Stephen from Ireland - Mario we would like to thank you so so much for organising our special day for us!! We knew it would be amazing but we were blown away by how beautiful the venue looked! Walking in and being greeted by a gentleman in a bow tie with welcome drinks was great. The candles and fairy lights were absolutely stunning! Our guests were stunned at how beautiful the venue was they felt they had stepped into a film and my father said he had tears he had never seen somewhere so beautiful. The service was incredible and you are so fun! The waiters were so professional and efficient and the whole night was so organised! I trusted your organisation but it was even more than I expected, we didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire night and were able to relax and enjoy our time with our friends. I had very particular requests and asked lots of questions and you were always very patient with me! You are brilliant at your job and we can't thank you enough for everything you did for us!! Enrico Capuano ( our photographer).... YOU ARE SUPERB
A beautiful Day” from Marius and Greta We found Wagner tours online after we visited Ravello and decided that we wanted to get married at Villa Eva. Mario and his team were helpful from day one. He had a very clear spreadsheet to track expenses which was helpful. Nothing had to be paid until a month before the wedding day which was also helpful. The day was perfect, Mario did a lovely ceremony and it was all planned very well. the mandolin players were great!! The food at Villa Eva was great and the venue looked beautiful. Aldo did my hair and it turned out perfectly, Adele did my make up and it was ok. The cake looked amazing but we did not know it would be over powered but so much alcohol but again it up to individual taste. Overall we loved the day and would choose Mario and his team again. Ah yes, the photographers Enrico Capuano and Gianni . Lovely guys on the day . Take Marios advice and make sure all you guests stay in Ravello!! We had some stay in Amalfi and were ripped off by the cab drivers, but this has nothing to do with Wagner Tours. Oh and Anna Maria was fantastic. Cheers, we hope this helps.
“The Best Week of Our Lives!” from Dannie and Oliver - When my partner and I got engaged in the Christmas of 2012, we instantly knew that we wanted to get married abroad. We went straight to travel agents to get information and felt completely overwhelmed by the choices, arrangements, legal procedures and prices! We knew that Italy was a forerunner for the location of the wedding and so I randomly googled ‘Places to get married in Italy.’ I was absolutely amazed by the sights of Ravello and knew that the coast line HAD to be the backdrop to our ceremony. I search for wedding planners in Ravello and immediately, Wagner Tours popped up. I trawled through Trip Advisor, trying to find Testimonials that had any kind of constructive criticism – surely this company could not be as perfect as they sounded?! How wrong I was! From the first email to the last, Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano have been absolutely incredible. My now husband, is a bit of a worrier and as I was doing all of the communicating, made me ask question after question analysing every tiny detail of the ceremony, meal, transport, flowers etc etc! Mario and Annamaria never complained, they responded promptly detailing all information in a clear and concise way. We decided on a symbolic ceremony at Tatore’s, drinks in the Piazza Duomo and then back to Tatore’s for our meal. We had so many delicious menu choices to choose from and found that the traditional looking style of the restaurant was made even more extraordinary by the stunning food that we had on the day. Pino and Luca, the restaurant owners completely blew away my expectations! We really liked the sound of the menu that we chose, but my goodness it was even more amazing than I could have imagined! The food is one of the main parts of the day that the guests cannot stop talking about! EVERY course was fantastic as were the staff working the wedding. Pino listened to all our requests and did everything that we asked of him – we really couldn’t have been happier with the day. At first we were going to have a friend photograph the day for us and when she was unable to Mario suggested Enrico Capuano and Pier Canta, photographer and videographer. Mario gave options for lots of different packages and explained the experience that both gentlemen had at shooting weddings around Ravello and the Amalfi Coast. My partner was particularly nervous about the photos as he hates posing for pictures but Enrico made us feel at ease instantly. He was snapping away and setting up some amazing shots – at this time I’ve only had a sneak peak of some pictures that he’s teased us with and I am so excited to see the rest, as looking at his previous work and how happy we were with his approach to the pictures, we know they are going to be amazing! One particular part of the wedding that was so authentic and special to us was the music provided by Tony and Claud, the guitar and mandolin players. Their subtle approach during the ceremony gave it just the right romantic feel and the accompaniment during our walk to and from the square was a dream! Everyone was in high spirits and the music just added to the amazing environment and feeling – it really was spectacular. The thing that I really want to stress is how amazingly stunning Ravello is. You don’t need a big extravagant venue for your celebration as you may do in England (or elsewhere!) because the amazing views and traditional feel of the town are superb. Every single guest went away happy from our wedding and I even sneakily overheard a few saying that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! Our wedding dream would not have been possible with the amazing Mario and Annamaria. They made us feel at home in Ravello straight away and I cannot wait to get back there for our anniversary, not only to be in Ravello, but also to see them! If you are planning a wedding in Ravello I cannot explain enough that you should choose Wagner Tours to help you plan the wedding of your dreams. My husband and I and both our family’s now have cherished memories of our wedding day that were only made possible by the fantastic Wagner Tours!Next Page
