A truly intimate ceremony and reception at the Belmond Caruso in beautiful Ravello, Dominique and Jess’ wedding evoked a very literal translation of the phrase ‘just the two of us’!
Together with their dog, Tucker, who donned a smart bowtie for the wedding, the couple got ready in their rooms before meeting each other for a stroll through Ravello’s charmming streets.
Dominique and Jess opted for a very small wedding, leaving them plenty of time for reportage and formal photography – and, of course, to spend time with one another on their special day.
The pair made the most of the dreamy light before the ceremony began, with these enchanting shots captured by photographer Lace and Luce.
The ceremony itself took place on an upper floor terrace at Ravello’s Belmond Caruso. The terrace overlooks the emerald mountains and the glimmering Tyrrhenian Sea – a breathtaking backdrop for weddings of all sizes.
The aisle was adorned with cream rose petals, and the altar marked by two floral arrangements, featuring cream and blush roses amongst glossy, dark green foliage.
Following the ceremony, Dominique and Jess sat down for a formal dinner as the sun set over the coast. The simple table-for-two featured white taper candles under glass amongst rose centrepieces on top of a minimalist, white runner.
A wonderfully romantic banquet!
