Ravello, Amalfi Coast Wedding

Villa Eva Wedding

Dino & Jess

Ravello, Amalfi Coast, 08.06.19

Villa Eva‘s a bit of a dream wedding venue in a dream location. The highest point in all of Ravello (already half an hours bus ride up the mountain from Amalfi) it boasts some of the best views in the world, which is a bold claim but if you don’t believe me take it up with American writer Gore Vidal.

On the days leading up I’m not sure who was more excited: Jess, Dino or myself. But as I joined them for a drink with their families in Ravello’s piazza on the night before I don’t think I was quite as nervous – with a million ideas in my head my biggest concern was if I’d have time to capture everything I’d like to!

In part thanks to the wonderful Victoria of Sophisticated Weddings the day went stunningly and they had nothing to worry about. I’ll admit having a soaked through collar during the ceremony wasn’t a highlight (and I’m not usually a sweaty person). But the atmosphere, views, guests, brilliant attitudes of Dino & Jess and of course the food – 5 courses! Made it completely unforgettable.

Here are the highlights, as a shorter video or scroll down for more photos.





An enormous thanks to Jess & Dino for their Hospitality, thank you!

If you’re looking for a destination wedding photographer in Ravello, Italy or anywhere else get in touch, I’m always happy to travel and try to keep costs down.

Credit goes to zoe at Amalfi Make up: https://www.zoegraham.co/  She did a fantastic job.

And the staff and especially the kitchen staff at Villa Eva, their huge array of desserts kept me going until midnight.

I’ve linked Victoria above but thanks again for all of your help. Victoria’s English but speaks beautiful Italian and I can highly recommend her cool head in hot weather! https://sophisticatedweddings.net/
