Wow wow wow...!!
My husband and I first came across the Don Pedro family in 2012 when we travelled to Sorrento to look at potential venues for our wedding in 2013. From the first email we sent to meeting the whole family we knew we had found the best wedding organisers to help plan our wedding day. On our return home we booked our ceremony through Thomson and used Don Pedro for all other services like cars, flowers, photographer, musician’s and of course our wedding cake – which were all amazing and cheaper than Thomson. Tony replied promptly to every email we sent and was happy to answer all our questions while offering suggestions – which were greatly appreciated!!
We met with Don Pedro and his family on the 14th September 2013, Tony very kindly picked us up from our hotel again and took us to the venue – Castore (Location A) – so we could have a look around and run over all the details for our special day to ensure nothing had been overlooked. It was great to see the family again and to know everything was taken care of and we could relax and enjoy our time in Sorrento before our wedding.
We also arranged to do a private boat tour to Capri the day before the wedding which was amazing... it was the perfect way to relax with all our family and friends while enjoying the lovely lunch, wine and beer that was included. We particularly liked the tunnel of love and stopping for swimming near the Blue Grotto. The views from Monte Solaro are simply breathtaking and Marcela took us to the most beautiful spot for photographs. On behalf of everyone I must say a huge thank you to Marcela who was the perfect host and made sure we all had a great day – we had a wonderful time!!
We were married on the 25th September 2013 at 3.30pm in the Cloisters. Our wedding car was truly stunning and our harpist was fantastic – hearing our song requests made it so personal. While we were having photographs taken our guests were enjoying the drinks reception with the guitar and mandolin players... When we arrived at the venue we were made to feel so special, we cut a ribbon and bow to enter the terrace which was lovely – another special touch from the Don Pedro family!! The guitar and mandolin players were fantastic... and we can’t forget how good it was to see Don Pedro sing a few songs!! We sat down for our 4 course meal around 6.30pm which was perfect as the sun was beginning to set... views of Capri to one side and Vesuvius to the other – what more could you want!!?? The wedding meal was out of this world, everyone (including ourselves) has commented saying it’s the best wedding meal they’ve ever had!! The attention to detail with the table dressing was second to none – it looked amazing!! After the meal the party started... we took our iPod and connected it up to their sound system – it was great!! We asked all our guests to give us a list of their favourite songs and it was great to see people’s faces when they realised it was their song being played and they made their way to the dance floor. We had a mini party out on the terrace for the cutting of our cake – everyone was clapping and the music was playing loudly as our wedding cake was brought out to the table – it was spectacular... and so were the fireworks that followed!! All of our guests have said it’s been the best wedding they’ve ever been too and we totally agree with them.
The Don Pedro family are amazing at what they do and we cannot recommend them and their services enough... you are treated as part of the Don Pedro family and not just a number as the tour companies do... which is exactly what you want in wedding organisers...!!
If you are planning on getting married in Sorrento then look no further as we can guarantee you will have the most amazing wedding day... we’ve had so many compliments about the Capri boat trip, the reception venue, the food and not to mention the incredible Don Pedro family – you certainly made our wedding day one to remember and we look forward to seeing you all again soon...!!
Lots of love,
Mr & Mrs Aitchison
