Amila and Robbie’s storybook Amalfi wedding stands timeless against the ebb and flow of trends. With simple whites and greens comprising the colour palette, the wedding decor was fresh, romantic and organic with a contemporary edge. Their aesthetic, in combination with their chosen grand, historic venues, has been imitated down to the finer details in the years since!
The ceremony took place at the NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, a former 13th century monastery perched on the cliffs of Amalfi, overlooking the horizon of the coast. The convento is favoured by many couples who wish to marry in Amalfi, not just for its rich history, but for its versatility – the grey white cloisters and open spaces offer a wealth of options in terms of decor and more.
The couple opted for sprays of green foliage with creamy white blooms. These installations adorned white chairs at the ceremony for the guests, alongside white candles in hurricane jars lining the aisle.
Following the ceremony, Amila and Robbie transported themselves to the reception venue – Caruso, a Belmond hotel – in a vintage, cream Alfa Romeo with the top down, filmstar style!
The pair shared a quick interlude together before greeting their reception guests, posing for these beautiful shots outside the convento. The Grand Hotel Convento and the Caruso are just a 20-minute drive away from one another, with miles of coastal scenery along the way.
The wedding dinner was held under the magnificent olive trees at the Caruso, on a cliff with rolling hills on one side and crystal waters on the other.
The blend of organic and contemporary extended to the garland table centrepiece, placecards and menus, with a single sprig of foliage garnishing each table setting.
Speeches and celebrations continued well into the night, with the cake cutting and hours of dancing taking place by the stunning infinity pool on the terrace.
This was not only a visually beautiful wedding, but the celebration of love alongside close friends and family radiated throughout the day and night – a dream come true for Amila and Robbie.
