Ravello is definitely one of the most romantic little towns on the Amalfi coast. It seems to have been placed on purpose in a special space between the sea and the sky, on a spur of a rock overlooking the glittering blue sea. Ravello is also known for its exquisite gardens, considered one of southern Italy’s natural marvels, and perfect for the making of the most stunning backgrounds for your wedding photographs. Poets and composers, movie actors and intellectuals love this little town. Ravello was named in Boccaccio’s “Decameron” and has offered creative inspiration to many artists, writers, and musicians. It is said that the world famous composer Richard Wagner created the second act of his musical drama “Parsifal” here, writing on the guestbook of Villa Ruffolo that “Klingsor‘s enchanted garden has been found!” referring to one of the characters of his piece. It was here in Ravello where H. D. Lawrence wrote a part of his famous novel “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”, and is even the narrative backdrop for Nobel-winning author André Gide’s novel “The Immoralist”.
It was here where Greta Garbo and Leopold Stokowski found a secret hide-away from fame where they could enjoy their love story undisturbed, surrounded by roses and the fragrance of lemons. Many celebrities from around the world have visited Ravello and have admired its sensational seaside panorama; in fact Ravello is called “Amalfi Coast’s terrace”. Your wedding in this passion-inspiring seafront paradise will be a true romantic get-away.
Ravello’s city hall is located in the twelfth-century villa Palazzo Tolla, a cozy setting for wedding ceremonies, decorated with antique furnishings and epoch paintings. The building is surrounded by a lovely flower garden where you may begin the start of your photo shoot of your wedding in Ravello. Upon request, the bride and the groom may hold their civil ceremony in Ravello either in a romantic garden path leading to the entrance of the municipal hall, or on a panoramic terrace with an astonishing sea view. The town hall provides only the table with tablecloth for the wedding, celebrated standing. Should you desire a seated ceremony, chairs may be rented privately. Choosing the outdoor ceremony for your wedding in Ravello, you will relive the same feelings that Greta Garbo and Leopold Stokowski lived during their great love story. The lush aromas, the breathtaking view, the infinite seascape and the soft clouds of the vast skyline will become silent witnesses to your love and to your unforgettable wedding in Ravello.
