Refined opulence in Neoclassical Sorrento Villa

It’s really hard not to fal in love wiht Villa Astor: clinging to the cliffs of the famous Sorrentine Peninsular, this venue has undoubtedly one of the best views in the world and boasts an unrivalled splendour with its gardens having been voted as one of the 10 most beautiful in Italy. The villa and its estate offer one of the greatest 20th-century collections of classical and Renaissance antiquities and are home to over 150 historical pieces that have been given special protection by Italy’s Ministry of Culture.

Our styled wedding shoot took place on a beautiful summer day in Sorrento: the soft, natural light and stunning scenery ensured that the final result was simply breath-taking.

To complement the Villa’s great splendour, Victoria and her team from Sophisticated Weddings created a ‘timeless elegance’ mood to the styled shoot which featured the most beautiful Galia Lahav regal, guipure mermaid gown ‘Lindsay’ from GV’s new collection, together with ivory ribbon tie lace embroidered booties from Bella Belle USA. Hair and makeup were delicate and perfectly put together by the BeautyLivery team and the jewellery was provided by Taya Gioielli. To complete our couple’s elegant look, Banderari sent a refined and exquisitely-tailored tux and accessories with the groom’s stylish shoes, handmade in Italy from Francesco Massarelli

Our tablescapes and ceremony detailing were in harmony with the natural beauty of the Villa and exquisitely designed by Giovanni Castellano, Floral Designer, featuring a delicate mix of white delphinium, eucalyptus, cineraria, English roses, scabiosa and dried flowers. The welcome sign, table plan, elegant menus and place cards were designed and supplied by Lilac & White.
