We love your vibrant yellow wedding in Sorrento, tell us more about the details you added to personalise your day.
We had a yellow and light blue theme for our wedding, yellow is such a positive and vibrant colour and also the perfect colour for Sorrento. Our decorations and favours revolved around lemons. We had yellow fan favours for the lady guests and bottle of Limoncello for the gentleman. We also had floral garlands lining the tables with lemons, they were perfect!
We had a traditional Italian wedding cake which was a lemon flavour; it was delicious, it wasn’t your traditional wedding cake from the UK but that made it even more special, and kept with the cultural theme we wanted! Our menu was three courses and then wedding cake for desert! The food was out of this world and the lasagne is still being talked about by our guests!
We had fans for the ladies, Limoncello bottles for the gentlemen, and for the little ones (we had two babies at the wedding) we gave them little white bears. Each guest also got a little bag of lemon sherbets too. From experience of being a guest at weddings flip flops are a God send for the sore feet so we also offered flip flops to all of our guests! In fact I think every lady took at pair! The also came in handy for the walk back to hotels!
What’s your best memory from the day?
Everything!! I was extremely nervous (we both thought that Ben would be the nervous one, but he was cool as a cucumber from start to finish!)
But I’d go through all those nerves again just to do the day all over again! It was quite honestly the best day of our lives!
One piece of advice I was given was to steal a few minutes during the day, just the two of us, to really appreciate what we’d created and all the guests who had joined us and just take it all in!
Did you stick to your original budget or go over or stay under?
We pretty much kept to our budget, although we did go over slightly because it’s just so difficult to be ruthless with the guest list!
What do you think makes a wedding abroad stand out from a wedding in the UK?
Sunshine and culture! You also get to spend quality time away with everyone, which is so precious!
What advice would you give to future brides and grooms who are getting married abroad?
First, enjoy every second, remember that it’s a holiday too so make lots of memories and enjoy your time away with family and friends; it’s unlikely that you’ll all be abroad again together with all the excitement and emotion!
Be adventurous with the groomsmen’s attire, we chose traditional three piece suits which were actually quite warm for the Italian weather!
Lastly, definitely consider a videographer, the day is full of such emotion so having a videographer really helps to jog the memory, for capturing the moments you missed!
