The Cloisters is part of a medieval monastery dating back to the 14th century and offers a truly magical setting with its arches and pillars surrounded by flowers, vines and ornamental trees. You can personalise your ceremony with your own reading(s) and musicians such as a violinist (which I personally recommend) or a traditional Italian guitar and mandolin duo. The open–air courtyard offers amazing acoustics with the venue often hosting classical music events. Following the ceremony, you have the opportunity to have your wedding photographs taken in the gardens behind, with the most spectacular backdrop of the Sorrentine peninsula and Vesuvius. A photographer’s dream!
Villa Fondi offers a breathtaking Neo-classical backdrop over the Sorrento coast and is perfect for outdoor weddings in Sorrento. Villa Fondi is also famous for its historical gardens, perfect for photographs following the ceremony on the cliff top terrace. Villa Fondi is situated in Piano di Sorrento, a 5-10 minute drive from the centre of Sorrento.
The Museo Correale is located in a 17th century villa, boasting precious period furniture and impressive paintings. If you prefer to get married outdoors, the Museo Correale is surrounded by gardens with centuries old trees, plants and a citrus grove.
All civil ceremonies are roughly 20 minutes long, conducted in Italian and translated into English. Ceremonies can be personalised with your own readings or poetry.
