"We had so much trust in Julie and My Secret Italy that we only saw our wedding venues for the first time four days before our wedding! We were looking for a traditional Italian seaside town to get married and we feel so lucky that we found Santa Maria di Castellabate and My Secret Italy to help us achieve our perfect wedding.
We originally planned to get married on the beach but we followed Julie's wisdom that in August this would not be ideal and we are so happy with the recommended location of the terrace of Torre Perrotti. The moment I stepped out onto the terrace and we saw each other for the first time, will be a moment we will treasure forever. This was made even more special by the guitarist playing Ava Maria and Caruso during the ceremony, musicians also recommended by Julie. There is something very special about hearing "you are now husband and wife" in beautiful Italian.
The ceremony was followed by drinks in the the gardens of Torre Perrotti which allowed us 20 minutes to wander "Twinkle Town" and get some photos by the very talented Ayesha Photography.
We really wanted an informal beach setting for the reception and were delighted with the Lido, a gorgeous rustic wooden beamed restaurant which provided amazing food and it was right on the beach. The relaxed atmosphere was perfect for us and our family and friends.
I cannot thank Julie and her team enough. They took care of everything based in Italy from the legal documents all the way through to my beautiful bouquet and fireworks! This allowed us to turn up feeling relaxed and enjoy every moment of our time in the stunning Santa Maria di Castellabate. Thank you Julie for helping us make it the best week of our lives".
Love to you and the family, hope it works out that we see you for our anniversary in the summer.
