When we were planning to get married, we knew we wanted Italy, and specifically Ravello, for a number of reasons: The food, the natural beauty, the weather, the stunning hilltop village, the friendly, welcoming people and that fact that you can legally get married outdoors in perfect sunshine, fragrant gardens and with stunning views.
But what we actually experienced at Villa Eva organised by Ravello Events for our wedding reception in June 2013 was a million times more fantastic than we even hoped or imagined during our year of planning whilst living on the other side of the world in Australia.
We chose our brilliant wedding planners, Rosaria and Angela from Ravello Events based on google searches of weddings in the region and some initial emails, and they were the best choice by far. They worked with us tirelessly and happily on every single detail from the ceremony, the legals, the flowers, make up, organising our guests and even babysitters, and of course the stunning Villa Eva main event.
I cannot tell you how thrilled we were with every single detail at the venue, with the attentive, caring staff and Ravello Events overseeing it all. The food at Villa Eva was mouth watering, we had 6 courses plus canapes and cocktails. My favourite dish was the Spaghetti with Aubergine crust - I am the biggest pasta lover in the world (another reason for choosing Italy) and it was the best spaghetti dish I have ever eaten. The villa has stunning, colourful gardens and trees wrapped in fairy lights, the food is imaginative in presentation with organic herbs from their gardens and the fresh seafood .... We started it all off with cocktails and canapés in the gardens, and after alot of stunning food, finished with the CAKE! It deserves an entire review of its own. The local delicious wine flowed and the Villa service, wow, just ... perfect. We were informed all the way through the night about every detail in a polite, friendly way so we were up to date all night, and could also relax knowing all guests and details were taken care of.
The combination of Ravello, the wonderful girls at Ravello Events and Villa Eva for a wedding or any special event, I cannot recommend more highly. Thank you SO much, our guests haven't stopped raving about it. The "best wedding they have ever been to" apparently, and they are a picky London lot ;) Forget the rest, it's all about Ravello for a wedding, christening, party, or anything special.
Amazing, grazie mille!
