Elopement Videographer at Villa Cimbrone
The times they are a-changin’, sang Bob Dylan, but some things are evergreen. Take elopement, for example. Two lovers running away to get married in secret, somewhere special. In books and movies it is portrayed like the ultimate act of rebellion against social constraints and, at the same time, an incredibly romantic idea.
Angela and Luigi decided to begin their journey together exactly like that, and they did it in great fashion.
Where, you ask? Why, Ravello, of course. The small town in southern Italy has exactly what you need to make your every dream come true. UNESCO recognized it as s World Heritage Site in 1997 and it is easy to understand why: you cannot help falling in love with its green and blue landscapes, its festivals, its warm and kind people, its amazing monuments and breathtaking churches and villas.
It is a place à la mode and yet old, characteristic, unique.
Luigi and Angela took residence for a few days at Hotel Caruso, a true gem on the Amalfi Coast. Sitting on a cliff overlooking the sea, it is one of the favourite destinations of celebrities and couples in love. Afterwards, they hopped in a vintage Giulietta and visited every alley, getting lost over and over again in this awe-inspiring town. And it is fitting that they chose a car with that name, for in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the legendary couple, in order to escape their families, eloped.
Angela and Luigi went straight to the Duomo of Ravello and admired the riches of the cathedral. He, wearing a grey suit and she, with a pearly white wedding dress completed by flower-shaped earrings and elegant gloves, took a short walk to the exclusive Villa Cimbrone, where they had the chance to enjoy the Viale dell’Immenso, through the lush garden. They could barely contain their happiness at the sight of Bacco’s temple or the Tea Garden. There, next to the garden of the roses, they stood under the gazebo built in Moorish style and, surrounded by the sculptures and the scent of the Mediterranean Sea, they promised each other undying love. Luigi’s hand was shaking a bit when he put a ring on it. Same goes for Angela that, with a quivering voice, read a love letter to her new husband.
Under the blue sky, the newlyweds strolled around a little more. There are many other wonders in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone, such as the Grotta di Eva, Roman columns and a replica of Michelangelo’s David. The most famous of all is the Terrace of the Infinite, an incredible belvedere that towers over the Amalfi Coast.
Couples from all over the world dream of standing there, on the edge of the world, to catch a glimpse of that view: the blue sky kissing the crystal sea is something that mere words cannot describe, but, luckily for Angela and Luigi, Studio D’Essai wedding videographers filmed that moment of pure bliss for them with their usual classy and gentle touch.
We wish Angela and Luigi the best of luck for their future and hope to see them again. We will remember this lovely couple and their romantic getaway for years to come, as they reminded us of the words of the immortal bard, William Shakespeare:
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
