Sophisticated Weddings are specialist wedding planners in Sorrento and across the Amalfi Coast, Italy; an incredibly alluring and beautiful part of the world in which to get married.

Every twist and turn along the Amalfi Coast brings you to another incredible destination. Positano, Sorrento, Ravello and Amalfi are glamorous resorts settled amongst lemon trees and olive groves, all offering breath-taking scenery with cliffs that plunge straight into the sea.

Sophisticated Weddings

This stretch of coast is steeped in history having been inspiration for poets, painters and musicians alike. Romanticised in the 1960s, it was also famous for attracting Hollywood movie stars such as Greta Garbo who came to escape the paparazzi. Few places in the world can surpass the Amalfi Coast’s spectacular allure with quiet bays, stunning scenery and crystal blue seas.

Each bride and groom has a different vision of what constitutes the perfect wedding day and thus we do not offer specific packages but tailor each wedding to the clients’ exact requirements and budget. We produce exceptional weddings in this romantic location to fit any budget because we believe that your day should be as unique as you are!

I simply cannot recommend Victoria and the team at Sophisticated Weddings highly enough. My husband and I chose to hire Victoria after a few skype sessions with various planners. Victoria stood out as being the ideal fit for us. She was the right mix of being open to new ideas and listening to our various inspirations while also guiding us and providing us with expert advice. She recommended us the most amazing suppliers who we could not fault. She was attentive to my many emails and Skype calls throughout the planning process. I loved that she kept me calm and appraised of where everything was at. I knew exactly where I stood with my budget and the status of the planning. We planned our wedding quite quickly yet Victoria handled the last minute things with ease. She went above and beyond what was expected of her. We had our symbolic ceremony at the amazing Hotel Belmond Caruso in Ravello. The day could not be faulted! She kept everything running smoothly. It was simply the most amazing day of our lives. I am generally easily stressed by large events but I was incredibly calm and relaxed throughout the day thanks to Victoria and her team. I will definitely be keeping in touch! Above all else, Victoria was warm, friendly and engaging. I am forever thankful! Thanks so much!!!

the best decision we made...
We want to thank Victoria again for all her efforts in making our wedding the most perfect day for us. We are so glad that we had her to make all of our dreams become a reality. On our first visit to Ravello Victoria arranged for us to visit Villa Eva. We immediately knew that it was the venue for us, with its idyllic setting, breath taking views, beautfil gardens and the fact we could party until 3am! The next 12 months of planning with Victoria was so much fun. She is super organised and we worked really well together and had pretty much everything booked and planned months in advance. She is such a positive person and was supportive about every idea that we had and was just as excited as we were. Every detail of the day itself was just as we had envisaged; from the red rose petals scattered down the aisle to the golden candlelight reception at Villa Eva, it was just absolutely perfect. Our wedding meal was the best Italian food we have ever eaten. We had our very own ‘cheeseman’ making fresh mozzarella for our guests. Victoria also sourced some personalised bottles of limoncello for favours which everybody loved. There was no stress at all for us on the day itself because Victoria was doing all of the running around in the background, which meant we were able to actually enjoy our day without worrying about anything. We would also like to thank Liliana for her assistance on the day and Carmela for making the ceremony so special. The whole day we felt as though we had just stepped into a bridal magazine. But it wasn’t a magazine, it was our day, and what an amazing feeling that was, all thanks to Victoria. Since the wedding many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to which makes us so happy and is a huge credit to Victoria. We have made a friend for life and look forward to enjoying a prosecco with Victoria when we next visit Ravello.

Best Wedding Planner Ever!!
"Wow! How do we even begin to describe how amazing Victoria was throughout the whole wedding planning process! From day one, we knew we had made the right decision in choosing Victoria to be our wedding planner. You truly went above and beyond to help us have the most perfect wedding day that we could have wished for. Not only did we plan a wedding abroad, but we did so whilst travelling the world for a year and Victoria made what could have been a very stressful process completely stress free. There wasn't a single part of the wedding that Victoria did not have covered. She was extremely professional, efficient and responsive to our requests and countless emails. Victoria is very organised and set out a very detailed timeline from day one in respect of the process and talked us through any worries or concerns we had. We had never visited Sorrento prior to booking our wedding and Victoria's recommendations in respect of venue's, flowers, cars, hair and make-up and photography etc were beyond perfect. Our guests were blown away by the whole day and still talk about what a fantastic wedding it was! On the day itself, Victoria and Liliana were with us every step of the way making sure that everything ran smoothly and according to plan. From getting ready in the morning, to the reception in the evening, they were both absolutely faultless. We can honestly say that there isn't a single thing that we would change about the whole day. Not only did we find the most amazing wedding planner in Italy, we also made a wonderful friend for life! Victoria, there are not enough words to describe how amazing you were and how grateful we are to you and Liliana for everything you did for us".

Cannot recommend enough!
Wow, where do we even begin?! We had both always wanted an abroad wedding, and decided on Italy due to family ties to the country. Having visited the Amalfi Coast a couple of years ago we knew how stunning it was, and after a quick google search we found Sophisticated Weddings. Victoria was absolutely fantastic, her knowledge of the local area is second to none, all of her suggestions and advice were right on point, and we couldn't possibly have done it without her. From all the planning that she helped us with (i.e., did for us!) to taking the time to get to know us a couple and what we wanted, the added little details she suggested, to her and Lilianna's help on the day, she was instrumental in us achieveing our dream wedding that us and our guests will remember forever. We don't have the words to properly express our gratitude and thanks, and would not hesitate to recommend Victoria and her team to anyone thinking of a destination wedding

Best Day Ever
I don't even know where to begin in thanking Victoria and her team for all they did to make our wedding a day we will never forget. We live in the United States, and we decided we wanted to have a destination wedding that our family and friends would never forget. We researched for awhile online and decided on Italy. We came across Victoria's website, and after talking for a little, we decided we wanted Victoria to help us plan our dream wedding. We had never been to the Amalfi Coast before, so we were planning everything unseen. Every step of the way, Victoria and her team were wonderful and so accommodating with every need and want. Every time I had a question or concern, she was quick to respond and accomodate. The whole process was very stress free even when being so far away. Victoria put together a spreadsheet that was extremely helpful in tracking what had been done and paid for. Victoria arranged transportation for us and all of our guests, she offered to arrange different activities, and was helpful all around with suggestions for our time in Italy. Since planning everything over email, we were not exactly sure what to expect. On the day of the wedding, I was blown away with everything. Everything looked exactly as I imagined it. It actually looked even better than I imagined. It was the perfect day, and our family and friends are still talking about it. We definitely could not have done this without the help of Victoria and her team. She will forever hold a special place in our heart for helping us put together our dream wedding.

A million stars . Absolute perfection.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all that you have done for our wedding in Sorrento this July . It was beyond our wildest dreams and such perfection . You took care of everything from booking the venue, to menu tastings, to arranging the ape cart, dealing with menu changes and on the day itself taking care of everything . You have gone above and beyond and are worth your weight in gold . Will and I are so grateful for all your hard work. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone . Everyone commented on how amazing the day was and that was down to you guys. I genuinely cant stop gushing as to how amazing you guys are.

Unforgettable day
We cannot begin to explain how happy we are that we chose Sophisticated Weddings to plan our special day. If we could give more than a 5 star rating then we would. We initially sent Victoria an enquiry and after speaking to her immediately knew that this was who we wanted to use to plan our day. Absolutely everything was so easy to arrange and the whole experience was as stress free as you could ever imagine. Every e-mail was answered within a day and any queries we had were explained so easily. We knew exactly what was happening every step of the way and never felt like we were not in control of what was going on. We set a budget for them to work with and if they suggested something but it didn't work for us then it was no problem, they came up with alternative options to suit us. When we finally met Victoria and Liliana in Italy they were brilliant. They took us to the venue and walked us through how the ceremony would go and then drove us to the reception venue to meet the owner and explain how things would run there. We were so happy and couldn't wait for the day. On the day itself they were both there making sure everything ran smoothly but you wouldn't even know they were there at all, and the whole day was as perfect as we had hoped from start to finish. It was the most memorable day we had dreamed of and it was all thanks to them. We could not recommend using Sophisticated weddings highly enough, if you have a dream wedding in mind, they will make it happen.

We would give more stars if we could!
Oh.. Where do we start! From the first e-mail correspondence we had with Victoria we felt at ease and knew instantly we was in good hands. Victoria, really got to know ourselves as a couple and was determined to find the right wedding venue for us, so much so that when we met in Sorrento for the first time and had agreed on what venue's we wanted to see Victoria added another venue as a surprise on to the list and although all of the venue's we first saw were absolutely beautiful the final venue blew us away. My husband actually booked the date of our wedding to secure this venue then and there it ticked all of our boxes and was so us! Victoria's communication throughout the whole planning stage was second to none and all of her team that we spoke to along the way were brilliant. Everyone kept asking me why I was so relaxed on the run up to my big day and all I could say was " I have Victoria". Victoria is a beautiful person inside and out and I can not recommend her and her team at Sophisticated weddings enough!

Dream Wedding Planner
When we got engaged back in December 2015 we were so excited to start planning our wedding abroad as we wanted our day to be extra special. We knew having a wedding abroad would mean our closest friends and family would be there to spend the most amazing time of our lives with us. We already knew we wanted to get married in Italy but we were unsure of where exactly. Once we started researching, Sorrento quickly became our obvious choice because of the spectacular views and scenery (which would of course make for some amazing wedding pictures). We had absolutely no idea of where to start the planning so I quickly started researching the internet to find wedding planners in Italy – particularly Sorrento of course. I had emailed a few wedding planners and felt I wasn’t getting answers to my specific questions, which was of course daunting as this was all so new. They kept coming back with package deals that just didn’t suit what we wanted or our budget. Just when we started to feel completely overwhelmed we came across Victoria at Sophisticated Weddings. I sent her an email and she responded straight away with the most amazing and most helpful information. There were a variety of different locations and venues to suit all budgets and Victoria also gave us some background information about her and her business. Victoria also gave a clear cost for her services which really settled our minds. Victoria is definitely the best in the business. Throughout the whole 18 months of planning I felt like I had my friend helping me with the plans for the big day. Nothing was ever too much to ask from Victoria and any time I sent an email I received a response straight away, even if this was to inform me that she was out of the office and would respond as soon as was possible, and she always did. I never had to chase Victoria for an answer about anything and I’m sure most brides will know how important that is. Victoria was so easy to talk to and nothing was ever too much effort for her. We travelled to Sorrento 5 months before our big day and Victoria was so kind to set time aside to come meet us! She even organised for us to do some food tasting at the venue which was just spectacular. Meeting Victoria was exactly what we had expected, she was so friendly and easy to talk to. We ran through the details of the wedding with the venue – and the fact Victoria is fluent in Italian really helped with this. Our Wedding Day was nothing short of perfect and this is all thanks to Victoria and her team at Sophisticated Weddings. I have to add that Liliana was also amazing, so friendly and welcoming. Victoria ensured we had a complete run through of the wedding day which put our minds at ease and allowed us to just relax and enjoy it. On the actual wedding day Victoria was there right from the start, even coming to see me in my hotel room before the ceremony, and stayed well into the evening to ensure everything was running perfectly. This was so comforting to know that Victoria was there if we had any questions. Everyone who was at the wedding has said it was the most perfect wedding, in the most perfect location and they cannot fault it. I would love to take the credit for this but I honestly could not have planned something so perfect if it wasn’t for Victoria. There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing she is at her job. The passion Victoria has and the lengths she will go to to ensure your big day is like a dream come true is just invaluable. We hope to be back in Sorrento in the not too distant future and would love to see Victoria again as she was not just my wedding planner, she is now also a friend.
