“Our amazing wedding...!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

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

“"Apologies for the late review as our wedding day was out of this world"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We arranged our wedding day through Tony Don Pedro's son in march this year, the attention to detail was wonderful and no matter what we asked was answered straight away to put our minds at rest.
Tony picked us up from our hotel on our first day and took us straight to the venue at Castore.
Everything was discussed and dealt with over a glass of prosecco and their own lemoncello which l can tell you was beautiful.
Tony and Don Pedro arranged for us the flowers, the hairdresser who came to our hotel both before and on our wedding day of the 27th August, the photographer, the cars, the wonderful menu and a beautiful wedding cake alongside many beautiful hidden extra's that l wouldn't spoil the surprise by going into any detail that we were greeted with and occurred throughout the day.
In addition we all went on a wonderful boat trip to Capri which was purely for our guests where once again nothing was left uncovered.
We were picked up on the day and greeted by Don Pedro and his family at a beautiful little cove and given wine,food and soft drinks. The Skipper of the boat and Don Pedro's step daughter Marie Therese were wonderful and so helpful throughout the trip.
This just reinforced to us what a family concern Don Pedro is and that without asking they go the extra mile with everything.
Our wedding day was simply out of this world and the chauffeur stopped on the way back from Positano following the beautiful ceremony to allow the photographer to take the most beautiful picturesque wedding photographs we could have wished for.
Incidentally Don Pedro brought the beautiful completed wedding album to us at our hotel on the 29th August simply 2 days after our wedding.
Castore is a beautiful venue with views to die for as well as a swimming pool that our children relished later on our wedding day and we were all in awe of how beautiful everything provided for our wedding really was.
As Don Pedro told us he does this with a passion from his heart and not simply as a business and the proof was there for us all to experience.
Considering this was all booked only 5 months prior to the day we couldn't have wished for anything better and everyone guests included have said it was the most magical beautiful as well as romantic wedding that they have ever been to.
If any body is reading this to make a decision where or who to organise their wedding on the Amalfi coast we cannot recommend highly enough Don Pedro as our wedding day was simply out of this world and aside from the paperwork required and wedding attire everything was arranged to perfection by Don Pedro and his wonderful family in particular Tony and Marcella.
Thank you so much for all you did for us and for making our dream come true and hopefully we will see you again in August 2014 for our first anniversary.

“Our fantastic Wedding in October!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We got married in Sorrento on the 4th October 2013 at Villa Fondi followed by a reception held at Castore. We cannot thank Don Pedro and his family enough for their superb service throughout the day of the wedding and also leading up to the wedding. After reading several fantastic reviews on Tripadviser we decided to contact the restaurant directly and from the outset we quickly realised we were in good hands. Communication with Tony was prompt and accurate - he answered every query no matter how small and helped make all planning stress-free.

The day after we arrived in Sorrento, Tony kindly picked us up from our hotel for a tour around town which included visiting our beautiful ceremony location and the impressive restaurant venue, Castore - here we were greeted by the family (Theresa and Carmella) all of which were so welcoming and friendly. We were so impressed with the venue which offers fantastic views over Capri and Vesuveus. We even had the privilege of meeting Don Pedro himself who took time from his busy schedule to sit down with us and go through the finer points of the wedding in detail - Don Pedro made some excellent suggestions with regards to flowers, transport, hairdresser, music, food etc. All while enjoying a few glasses of their delicious homemade Prosecco and Lemoncello - we even left the restaurant with a few bottles of wine they have produced in their own vineyard!

When we booked our wedding via Thomsons, we were not aware that Don Pedro could also organise all legal work as well as the services mentioned above and after receiving such a top service from them, i would thoroughly recommend organising the entire wedding via Don Pedro.

Tony stayed in touch with us all week and continued to answer any queries we had.

Needless to say, the wedding day ran perfectly! Every single service which Don Pedro arranged for us was faultless, from the flowers, the music, the photographer, transport etc. Don Pedro's daughter-in-law Marcella arrived at our hotel on the morning of the wedding and she really did look after me all day, from translating between myself and the hairdresser to carrying my dress off the floor. She told me she would be like a 3rd bridesmaid to me and she certainly was. Don Pedro was also there to make sure everything ran smoothly.

After the ceremony, the welcome received by the whole Don Pedro family was excellent and the appetisers were delicious. The mandolin players were full of life and kept the guests entertained until it was time to sit down for the meal. Don Pedro was our toastmaster throughout the day and kept everything under control and perfectly timed. We cannot praise the staff, food, Prosecco, wine, wedding cake and location enough.

Don Pedro even had a few surprises throughout the entire day which will not disappoint. I will not anything away but they really are lovely touches and made us feel extra special.

Don Pedro called our hotel room just two days after our wedding to advise that our photographs were ready. He then personally delivered our album and disc to our hotel just a couple of hours later. We are so delighted with the photographs, the photographer truly did capture what an amazing day we had.

We cannot recommend Don Pedro enough - they are so passionate in what they do and go above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is perfect in every way. Their hospitality and hard work is out of this world. It was a truly amazing experience and one we will never forget.

We are more than happy to answer any questions anyone might have and can be emailed on vb18@hotmail.com. We are also more than happy to share any photographs.

“Couldn't have wished for a better wedding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

We had our wedding here last week and words cannot describe what an amazing day we had. Tony, Dons son communicated with us prior to the visit making sure everything was taken account for and was extremely helpful. When we arrived in Sorrento Tony picked us up and took us to see the venue at Castore, we were both taken aback by the gorgeous views and the venue itself. We were introduced to the family who are all lovely and then given prosecco and limoncello which they make themselves whilst we went through the last details and logistics. Don Pedro made it seem so easy and it left me wondering how some people take so long to plan a wedding when he seemed to arrange everything whilst we were there! After we had finished Tony drove us down into Sorrento to shown us the town and also the cloisters where we were getting married.

On the wedding day a mini bus arranged by Don picked up the guests and I was picked up in a nice Mercedes. The ceremony was stunning, we had a brilliant photographer and a mandolin and guitar player at the ceremony who also came to the venue with us, again all organised by Don. There were plenty of unexpected surprises organised for the day which I won't spoil! Don Pedro, Tony and the family really made the day special for us and our guests also had a fantastic time. I would definitely recommend anyone to get married here. The only regret I have is not booking the ceremony through Don as he does this also, there doesn't seem to be anything the man can't arrange!

Thank you Don Pedro, Tony and family, and I'm glad we got the cake in the end it was yummy along with the rest of the food! Will hopefully see you next year as we will be visiting for our years anniversary.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Don Pedro helped me organised my wedding in June and it was Amazing!! Nothing was too much trouble, Tony and Don Pedro were very helpful in the months leading up and made it the best day ever!! The food was outstanding and the hospitality was fantastic. If you are considering Don Pedro for your wedding then just do it!! Far more of an occasion than the restaurants in the town and you will get some awesome surprises on the day too!! Our friends said it was the best wedding they have been to, so her must be doing something right Jemma & Stuart
