Genevieve and Anthony celebrated their enchanted April wedding in the seaside town of Sorrento.
Anthony and his attendants visited a traditional Italian barber shop for a wedding day grooming, while Genevieve and her bridesmaids prepared for the day’s events at the elegant Hotel Antiche Mura in the centre of Sorrento.
The bride and groom met in the idyllic Cloister of Saint Francis for a special and emotion-filled first look moment after which they wandered through the charming Sorrrento streets for photographs together.
Genevieve and Anothony’s wedding events were held at the Villa Antiche Mura, a graceful private villa perched on a Sorrento cliffside, offering spectacular views acros the Sorrento coastline, towards the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
Groom Anthony waited, eagerly, with the couple’s guests on the elegant, white, wedding terrace of the villa as bride Genevieve arrived by horse and carriage, accompanied by her proud father.
Genevieve and Anthony’s religious wedding ceremony was celebrated under a beautiful floral arch decorated with pretty white drapes, against the breathtaking sea view.
Having been joined in marriage the ecstatic newly-weds made their bridal exit, hand in hand, to the cheers of their families and friends.
While guests enjoyed post-ceremony aperitifs on the wedding terrace, Genevieve and Anthony strolled through the villa and its verdant, flower-filled and tree-shaded gardens for photographs. They then followed the villa’s private pathway, which winds all the way down to the sea shore, for more pictures against the stunning backdrop before rejoining their guests for further fun and celebrations.
The delicious wedding gala dinner was served on the villa’s stylish red dining terrace, shaded by trees decorated with hanging hearts and lanterns, framing the wonderful views.
Following the cutting of their wedding cake, Genevieve and Anthony took to the dancefloor for their first dance as husband and wife before being joined by their guests to dance the night away!
Genevieve and Anthony’s enchanted April wedding was fabulously fashioned for them by Federica Nascimben and her talented team at The Italian Wedding Event.
