The Amalfi Coast, a fashionable couple and a venue you’ll never forget, Desiree & Hank’s Positano wedding at Villa San Giacomo was magically romantic from beginning to end. Destination villa weddings like this one are one of my favourite style of weddings. All your loved ones are in one gorgeous location, pre and post pool parties, sightseeing adventures, plus add in the delicious Italian food and you have a stunning wedding and a great week full of memories.
Desiree & Hank’s wedding was just that.
Carla from Weddings Italy by Regency created a magnificent fete for them at Villa San Giacomo, a luxury historic villa in Positano with a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea.
It all began with the preparations at the Villa: Desiree looked stunning in her custom wedding gown. My favourite part? The feather details and mantilla that made her dress unique and very much a statement. Also, the mantilla was a gorgeous modern alternative to a classic veil and I’m so on board! With her hair and makeup done by Alessandro Mancino, she looked sophisticated and elegant. Hank looked sharp in his tux as he waited for her to walk down the aisle. Seeing each other for the first time during their ceremony at Santa Maria Assunta church was so special, their friends and family all able to witness. Soon after the heart-warming ceremony, Positano downtown and the beach made the perfect backdrop for some beautiful portraits. Desiree & Hank also took a boat ride to enjoy the scenographic view of the Amalfi Coast from the sea and share a glass of champagne while spending a bit of time alone.
Back at the villa, the festivities continued with an Italian aperitivo in the garden. Delicious food, wine and an utterly beautiful view over Positano… what more could you wish for? The dinner was served on the covered terrace where Carla created a breathtaking setting that was luxurious feeling with elegant white, overflowing flowers arranged by FloraGardenaldo. As the night grew darker, the room began to glow by candlelight. A romantic first dance, heartfelt speeches by their friends and family, and an exit through a row of lit sparklers for the couple were just some of the highlights from what was an epic celebration. This was truly a day that will leave guests remembering it forever.
Congratulations Desiree and Hank, it was an honour to be able to capture this incredible day for you!
