Review from Kirsty and Oliver : Most amazing day of our lives!!!!!! WOW where do I start, if you want the perfect wedding Mario and his team will make sure they do everything they can to provide this.... all of my friends warned me about how organising a wedding is so stressful, but with the full help of Mario this stress was taken away (the only thing I had to do was make sure my guests were coming).. many people in there reviews have said they visited the venue beforehand, my husband and I did not do this as we wanted a surprise, many people told me it was a big risk, however we did not see it like that, we just wanted to remember our perfect day and venue for what we saw on that day only, it was our first trip to Italy the week of our wedding and we were blown away but how magical everything looked All of our guests said it was the most amazing wedding they have ever been too, and are still talking about it now, I wish I could do it all over again (hopefully not though haha) Thank you Mario, Annmarie and all of the team, you honestly made our dream come true and we will be forever thankful Kirsty and Ollie
Review from Ashley and James : A Gorgeous Wedding on the Amalfi Coast Our wedding was originally planned for June of 2020, however, with the pandemic it was pushed to July 2021. Throughout all of the date changes, Mario Capuano (Wedding Planner) was extremely communicative, and helpful as we remained hopeful to finally have our dream wedding in Ravello. Finally, our plans came to fruition, and we traveled from the US to the Amalfi Coast at the end of July. From start to finish, we loved every minute of our time in Ravello. From the pizza party the evening before to all of the small details at Villa Eva, we were impressed with the care that Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano (Wedding Planner) put into making our wedding so special. The views are amazing, the food was spectacular, the cocktails were delicious, the flowers were gorgeous...we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We wanted something different for our wedding, and love to travel, and the Amalfi Coast was the perfect spot for a wedding. A big thanks to both Mario and Annamaria for all of the care they put into our special day, and the work to make it perfect. Look no further for your dream wedding with these two fabulous planners! They also can assist in booking other aspects of your wedding from places to stay, to transfers, to excursions. It is a one stop shop, and gives you your time back...Hence the beauty of a destination wedding. If we could do it over, we would! I think a vow renewal is in our future for Ravello!
Review from Sean and Rebecca : Best Day of Our Lives... Ravello Wedding at Villa Eva, My wife and I married in Ravello in September with the genius planning and support of our wedding planner, Mario Capuano at Wagner Tours. Mario Capuano and his excellent team members, Annamaria Staiano, and Simona Cappotto, truly delivered the best day of our lives together with incredible precision and attention to detail. My wife painted a vision for Mario on how she wanted the decorations and flowers to look, and his team worked with us to understand it, make suggestions, and it was everything we wanted and more. As we live in the USA, the communication needed to be clear and timely, and Mario always came through - I don't think I ever waited more than 24 hours for a reply from Mario. On the day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about a single thing, as Mario did all the worrying for us! He kept me informed according to the plan that he and I discussed, and he arranged the wedding processions into the Duomo di Ravello on the day in real time like a true master. Our photographer, Enrico Capuano, was so nice and easy to work with, Mario's son. Our Videographer: Pier Canta, Make up Artist : Adele, Musicians : Tony and Alex. They were all amazing. I highly recommend Tony & Alex for the guitar and mandolin during the wedding and the 4 piece jazz band during the dinner. The venue of Villa Eva couldn't have been more perfect for us. We wanted 'rustic elegance' and this place had it in spades. The food and wedding cake was fantastic as well. Mario and Team, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. You made the most important day of our lives as a couple better than we knew it could ever be. We hope to see you all again soon.
Testimonial from Ivy and Donal : Unforgettable Wedding My husband Donal and I were married in Ravello There are no words to describe the deepest of our appreciation to Mario Capuano, Annmaria Staiano, Antonella Somma and the photographer Enrico Capuano. From the day we decided on Amalfi it was the reviews on Mario and the team that convinced us that it to be in Ravello and it had to be by them, having them plan our wedding was hands down the best decision we made throughout the whole wedding process and we are so blessed to have found him. What was immediately obvious to us from our first interaction was Mario, Annmaria’s genuine passion and care for making our day the best it could be. Nothing was too much trouble; no request was too crazy they took all the stress and worry away. Ravello is the most beautiful place in Amalfi and villa Eva was absolutely magical, our family and friends continue to tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever attended, a once in a life time celebration fit for a celebrity. From the venue to the table setting, the photographers Enrico Capuano, Gianni and Pier the florist and everyone involved we were blown away by the cohesion and beauty in every aspect of our day. Once again thank you Mario Capuano, Annmaria Staiano, Antonella Somma, Enrico Capuano and the rest for all your hard work, late night never ending emails and being so understanding and always clear in your communications and most importantly your patience especially when Bridezilla made an appearance. We really did have the best day of our lives and we will treasure it forever.
Testimonial from Mr and Mrs Kemp: Mario Capuano, Annamaria Staiano and Team. The dream team of wedding planners!We were very lucky to choose your company for our wedding.From your sense of humor to your professionalism, the whole process was made so much simpler having you there running everything. Your company has the feel of a close knit family business which makes you feel immediately comfortable. It’s very apparent that you have been planning and executing the most fabulous weddings for many years. The experience you have resulted in us having our dream wedding and more. Our trust was rightly placed from the delicious food, breath-taking venue & flowers, the musicians creating perfect atmosphere and all of the suppliers you helped us secure. Everything ran smoothly and apart from normal wedding nerves pre ceremony we felt very relaxed and looked after. A special thank you for the level of detail on the floristry, Leiane and I really appreciated how the bouquets & table arrangements looked on the day, it made the day even more picturesque. You were recommended to us by our friends and we will also be recommending everyone we know. Thank you. Enrico Capuano, wow wow wow. We cannot thank you enough for your beautiful photos of our special day. You truly are a skilled photographer with fantastic artistic vision to capture amazing lighting and magical moments in the beautiful setting that is Ravello.We have so many wonderful shots that we cannot decide on which ones to place on our walls at home, I think our whole house may become a shrine to the wedding if we are not careful. You were very professional and polite throughout the whole process from meeting you until the end of our actual wedding and I think you are truly like a ninja for I do not remember seeing you at all during the wedding yet you managed to achieve great photos of us and our family. Your style of photography is exceptional, capturing some of the more natural and arty moments we had hoped for, we are truly grateful for the amazing memories you have captured for us. You have more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you. We would highly recommend you to anyone getting married on the Amalfi coast who needs a photographer. Thank you. Finally, Pier Canta, what an amazing video of our wedding day, thank you. When planning our wedding we were not sure if we wanted a videographer, as felt a little nervous about being filmed in general. We are SO thankful that we decided to work with you. We are more than happy with the results of our wedding video we cannot thank you enough. We never felt rushed or that you over imposed, quite the opposite actually and you still managed to shoot the most poignant and emotional footage of our special day. Our memories of the wedding day are vivid but your video has honed in on the little bits that we may have missed on the day and it completes the circle for us. Anyone deciding on whether to have a videographer for their wedding should trust in Pier as I am sure they will be just as pleased as we are. Thank you all for making our day so special.
Review from Erwin and Ilona :Our dream wedding! We had our dream wedding in Ravello organized by Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano and their team from Wagner Tours. It was the most beautiful and happy day in our lifes! We went to Ravello to search for a wedding location and met Mario. He is helpful, has 25 years of experience and we felt directly that he was going to take care of everything we wanted. And he did! He is very punctual, always available to (very quickly!) answer questions and so experienced to advice and guide you to a perfect wedding day. This man and his team know exactly what they are doing. Without any doubt, THE ONE AND ONLY WEDDING PLANNER of Ravello! We are still amazed by everything we experienced on our wedding day. And so are our guests. Both our guests from the Netherlands and Italy had an unforgettable experience. It was like a fairytale! From the civil ceremony in the garden Belvedere Principessa di Piemonte, to the toast in the main square of Ravello, to the beautiful Villa Eva with stunning views on the Amalfi coast. We had a delicious diner with great food and wine from Villa Maria. The cutting of the cake in the garden of Villa Eva was magical and the party was so much fun! Everything was perfectly managed by Mario, Annamaria and their team, which let us enjoy every minute of the day and spent time with each other and our guests. All these moments have been photographed by the lovely Enrico Capuano, who is also very professional and delivers absolutely beautiful photos. Thank you so much Mario, Annamaria, Antonella, Enrico (photographer), Adele (make-up artist), Giovanni (violist) and Alfonso (DJ) for making our dream come true! With love, Erwin and Ilona
Testimonial from Amar and Sushma Amin : More than what we could ever had wished for !!! We have just returned from Ravello, and still cannot believe how smoothly our wedding has gone.... all credit to Mario Capuano (Wedding Planner) & Annamaria Staiano (Wedding Planner) .... It is very hard to describe or put into words how both Mario and Annamaria have worked so hard to make our wedding a success.... but here we go, we will try : We were the first couple to have a traditional Indian wedding in Ravello, Villa Eva, with the entire ceremony, staging and day all bespoke to fit in many Indian traditions. This would have been a massive task, for any wedding planner.... but not for these guys! ALL YEAR, we have had friends and family asking us if we needed help, and if we were stressed at all, about the wedding.... and ALL YEAR (up until the last 3 days till the wedding) we could honestly say, we didn't have to stress about anything..... We give this credit to both Annamaria and Mario..... they are true work horses, with instant responses to the smallest of queries, and absolutely nothing is too much to ask for..... from managing over 130 guests, to finding last minute hotels and even finding the time to welcome our immediate family within their office! They have managed absolutely everything, from food tasting, to flowers (high expectations - accomplished) to even wedding gifts for guests.... You name it, they will do it all for you! All of the above, is mostly what you would expect and need, from wedding planners... especially when getting married in another country... HOWEVER what we didn't expect, were the people behind the names.... Mario and Annamaria, are genuinely amazing people, from the first minute we met them, we knew we had picked the perfect people to "manage our dreams" ! They are both so funny in their own way, and have touched our lives forever.... and we can only hope and imagine that they do the same to each and every one of their clients (now friends). To be honest, the best compliment we can pay them, is, if given the opportunity, we would pick both Mario and Annamaria to do our children's wedding in the future, and we would not think twice about doing so. We would like to thank Mario and Annamaria, for their work at making our wedding a fairytale come true.... but mostly we would personally like to thank them for being amazing people, and for touching our hearts forever. Thank you. Enrico Capuano,we cannot thank you enough for your beautiful photos of our hindu ceremony and special day. You truly are a skilled photographer with fantastic artistic vision to capture amazing lighting and magical moments in the beautiful setting that is Ravello. Lots of Love, hugs & kisses Amar and Sushma Amin
Testimonial from Ireland Neil and Aishling : Amazing Wedding We had our wedding in Villa Eva in September and it was everything we expected and more. Incredible venue. Absolutely amazing from start to finish. The day itself was run brilliantly. No issues or any problems throughout the day. Food was fantastic. Music was excellent. Our guests were blown away by the day and everyone had a fantastic time. Mario Capuano and Anna Maria were wonderful to work with. All requests they tried to accommodate and all emails and responses were answered extremely quickly. All the photographers Enrico Capuano and Gianni Coppola and videographers Pier Canta and Janni were so professional. Would highly recommend Mario Capuano and Wagner Tours Weddings and Weddins for anyone looking to have their wedding in Ravello
Review from Alex and Saba : Our Perfect Wedding! If you are thinking of booking Mario and the team, you won't regret it! After experiencing the team first hand it is easy to see why they have so many 5star reviews. We booked our perfect wedding without visiting Ravello until 3 days before the big day on 12th August 2017. The whole process was seamless and could not have been possible without Wagner tours. Mario would email us back at all hours of the day, 7days a week, it is as though Mario never sleeps! We had a symbolic ceremony and reception at Villa Eva. Villa Eva is beautiful. The backdrop to our ceremony was perfect, lush green Ravello hills, beautiful blue sea and blue sky. Both Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano are amazing, we could not fault them. They went above and beyond what would be expected to make our day perfect. Enrico Capuano, the photographer was with me (the bride). I can be very awkward in front of the camera but he listened to everything I said and made me feel at ease throughout the day. He managed to truly capture our joy on the day. He also edited our photos to perfection. All the photographers and videographers were so professional. I don’t know how they managed to capture the photos that they did as they were behind the scenes throught the day. We barely noticed they were there. Our wedding day video is perfect. Pier Canta did such a great job capturing our happy day, and the edits he did were exactly what we asked for. Gianni Coppola (our other photographer) got perfect action shots of all the guests, really capturing all our emotions. All of the photos and videos we’ve got back are so professional and there are so many of them to savour for a lifetime. Hair: Gerardo did my hair and my 6 bridesmaids with the help of two assistants. We all looked exactly as the requested pintrest styles, if not better! Adele did my makeup for the day. I do not usually wear makeup and was very anxious about what I would look like. As I arrived in Ravello only 3 days before my wedding it didn’t leave me with much time. Despite this, my makeup and hair were exactly what I asked for! Food: It was almost impossible to decide with all the amazing choices! We had two menus and both of them were delicious. The service was impeccable, we were really impressed with how they managed timings, given our speeches overran slightly! The lead up to the wedding and the wedding day were stress free. Everyone kept saying how calm we were and that is thanks to the wagner team. We did all of our communications via email, whether selecting menu choices, photographer, music flowers etc. Mario would just give you a reminder when you need to focus on the next part of the wedding which made it so manageable. We also added our own personal touches to the day, (such as lawn games and wedding stationary) which we were able to send directly to the Wagner office to avoid taking too much in the suitcase! That was so helpful! We booked Paola the caricaturist on recommendation of Wagner Tours and she was absolutely brilliant! Everyone loved our caricature gift “from the bride and groom” so special thanks to her for managing to draw so many people and putting smiles on faces! Having also had an event back in London, we can honestly say, the service and care from the Wagner Tours team truly surpassed all of our expectations. They provide an exceptional service that can’t compare to any other events planners we previously had.
Testimonial from Ireland Niam and Bryan : Family wedding in Ravello Myself and Niamh could not recommend Mario and his team more! We were just so happy with the way our wedding turned out.(and all planned in about 6 weeks!!! ) From the very first contact to the day of our wedding, everything was perfect. Our guests loved the location and Mario's team made us feel so at ease. The food -da Tatore -was just perfect and we could not have been happier. Go raibh maith agaibh to Mario and his team.

Review from Anna and Patrice : A Fairytale Wedding with "Reserved Elegance"- Well, we just got back from Ischia in the Amalfi Coast last weekend. However, we are still on Ravello time as we continue to remind each other what a wonderful experience we have had for the full year leading up to our wedding with Mario Capuano our wedding planner from Wagner Tours, Annamaria Staiano, Antonella Soma, Enrico Capuano and the rest of the team. Even though we tried to limit the amount of emails to the team recognizing that they had many couples communicating for their own weddings, we still reached approx. 220 emails-if not more. Regardless, we were never given the impression that Mario or Annamaria were too busy. They responded promptly to any questions we had along with some recommendations and/or solutions. I asked if they ever slept as they are 6 hrs ahead of our time in Canada and I was still receiving responses from Mario late at night. Celebrating our lives together could not have been more perfect. The patience, dedication, and insights of the Wagner team in Ravello are the reason for the wonderful experience we had throughout the planning stage and the celebration They made us feel confident from the very first email. When we arrived they welcomed both of us with open arms to Ravello and honestly by the time we bagan to work on some details, we felt like part of their family. I don't think we have ever felt this level of emotion, respect and appreciation for a team of professionals as we have for Mario and the rest of the team. We chose Villa Eva as the venue for our wedding. A private unique Villa with breathtaking views of the coast and beatiful manicured gardens in a perfect location of Ravello. We had decided to have the ceremony and dancing after dinner outside. Of course Mario and his team suggested that we have a contingency plan in case of rain. Well, sure enough it did rain that day and both Mario and Annamaria waited until 1/2 before the ceremony to make the change as they really wanted the sun to shine for us on our wedding day. Even though guests began to arrive, they managed to re-arrange seating, and move the ceremony indoors without much fuss and disruption to the guests. It was a special day. The view from the open doors where we had the ceremony were breathtaking. Annamaria's nack for detail tied all the elements together including our families lighting a unity candle, lavender in small cones for the guests to shower us with for good luck, signage in both Italian and English, amongst many other special touches. Because of the rain we had the reception under the Marquis. Mario, Annamaria and the Villa Eva staff arranged a seperate area that did not feel like it overlapped with the dinner area that was already set up. It was magical. Many candles, twinkle lights, lemon orchard floral runners, and 2 musicians with their mandolins greeting us as we entered the Marquis with our guests. It was a wow moment and truly felt like we were in a fairytale story. There was a feeling of reserved elegance that filled the Villa that really redefined the meaning of "chic". We have the Mario, Annamaria, and the team to thank for rolling out our vision.In addition, Enrico Capuano was incredible....a very talented young man with passion and expertise behind the lense. I feel the art of a good photographer is to get the most amazing shots, but to almost be invisible while doing. We felt Enrico did just that. He made us feel comfortable for the still shots and he was very accommodating to take photos of the individual couples, as well as many candid shots. Annamaria, provided a level of genuine support and navagated through details with a natural ease. Her level of detail was very refreshing. Her touch was everywhere throughout the wedding venue. From the photo garden to the cigar corner, to the exact positioning of the table and seating cards, favours and flavoured almond confetti. Adele and Andrea were also a great referral as they both worked on making my "look" perfect and still allowing me to look like "me" :-) ...... not an easy task for them as they are working with brides for the first time. This is an art not easily obtained. Our guests had an amazing experience thanks to the suggestions and planning of the Wagner Team in Ravello. They loved their stay at Villa Maria & Villa Giordano as well as the boat ride to Positano, and being picked up and dropped off to and from Ravello,. They truly have never been treated with such courteous and personalized service before when attending a wedding. Mario, Annamaria, and the team made this happen and we are so appreciative for all their hard work to coordinate this complex task but yet made it feel seamless for us and our guests.They truly were our family away from home and we both feel that when we return to Ravello, it will not only be to celebrate our anniversary. It will also be to re-connect with our new extended family Mario, Annamaria, Antonella, Enrico, Adele, Adrea, and the rest of the Wagner Tours - Ravello Team! Best, Anna and Patrice
Review from Nadine and Andy Our 'Perfect' Wedding Day 6th July ..The only way I can describe our Wedding day was ‘Perfect’... After getting engaged last Summer we initially looked at venue’s in Scotland to have the big fairy tale wedding. However looking at venue’s we didn’t see any that gave us the ‘wow’ factor. It wasn’t until my Fiancé suggested going to Italy to get married. We had never been before but all the same were both keen to go at some point. We both love Prosecco, pasta and pizza so it seemed ideal. Looking for an actual place to go was the hard part and we did lots of research and came across the Amalfi Coast. I emailed several Wedding Planners within the region and the prompt response I received from Mario sold it for us. He was very clear with what they offered as part of their service. We were sent a lot of information but it covered everything from what we needed to do in the UK beforehand – a step by step guide. We choose Wagner Tours as our Wedding Planner and from the 1st day Mario and Annamaria were on hand with any questions and issues we had. I couldn’t fault their communication with us it really was 1st class. If we sent an email asking questions we would have the response the same day, they really did re-assure us with every part of planning our Wedding. It also took so much stress from ourselves being back in the UK knowing we had let Mario and his Team plan our Wedding Day. When we arrived at Ravello we were both blown away by how beautiful it actually was. The scenery from every part of Ravello was out of this world, the pictures that you see on the internet don’t do it justice. Our 1st day on arriving we meet with Mario and Annamaria which was lovely to finally put a face to a name. We went through what was going to happen during the day and discussed timings. The way that they have things in order is 1st class, everything is so well organised. At not one point did we feel stressed as we knew everything was being taken care of by Mario and Annamaria and the Team. This meant we could enjoy the run up to the Wedding with our guests and relax in the glorious weather. I don’t think this would happen if you got married in the UK. We had a Pizza Party the night before the Wedding so all our guests could come together and meet. The evening was fantastic, the views overlooking the Amalfi Coast from the restaurant are breath taking. It was a ‘Perfect’ start to the Wedding celebrations. The day of the Wedding came and from the moment we started to get ready to the end of the evening again it was ‘Perfect’. I could go on and on but there wasn’t anything to fault about the day. Our makeup artist Adele did a fantastic job for myself and Maid of Honour. Andrea the hairdresser was brilliant, he did all our hair including some members of my family. Villa Eva itself where we had the Reception was ‘Perfect’. You’ll notice I keep saying ‘Perfect’ but it’s the only way to describe the whole day and Ravello itself. The food was AMAZING, so much food that you would of not left hungry. We danced the night away until 4am which back in the UK would be unheard of. It was actually a sad moment when it all ended. Lastly though we have just received our photographs and we are both totally blown away. I felt very emotional going through them and re-living the day again. Enrico Capuano our photographer has captured our day in such a special way, he’s captured pictures that are full of happiness and has given us a memory for a lifetime, we really can’t thank him enough. Ravello was a dream for us and this wouldn’t of been possible without Mario, Annamaria and the rest of the wonderful team at Wagner Tours. You made our Wedding Day ‘Perfect’ and we can’t thank you all enough. Love The Jacksons
Review from Suzannah and Cameron : The most beautiful Wedding Our Friends had been to! My husband and I had always wanted to have a holiday abroad and Italy being our favourite country was always what we dreamed. We were so fortunate to meet our wedding planner Mario Capuano and also Annamaria, I have honestly never met such organise day people in my life! Everything wa planned to the minute it was amazing. They understood what we wanted from the setup to the style to music to extra personal elements. I am a very particular person and they completely got my vision and I oculus the have been more happy. Our friends and family without blowi our own trumpet said hey Felton like they had stepped into a wedding from OK magazine , and with that I knew Mario and Anna Maria had nailed it. I was a little nervous about how the food would be as I am a complete foodie and I mean total food snob, I like good food, and with not being able to try the food before hand I just want to say to people who are foodies..... don't worry...it's stunning food and stunning service. I was floored. Enrico Capuano our photographer was the best, he was very professional yet personable in our space and took pics ever so candidly (we all want a candid pic) he was very lovely and took the pics beautifully! If you are looking for wedding planners who know everything and I mean everything about weddings in Amalfi coast, head are your guys! Lots of love Suzannah and Cameron
Review from Youseff and Megan : The best day ever! We visited Ravello a year before our wedding for only 30 hours and immediately fell in love with this small Italian village. We knew it would be the perfect place to hold our wedding but weren't sure how we would be able to plan everything from the United States. Fortunately while we were running between venue showing appointments we passed by Wagner tours and decided to check it out. Since our first meeting with Mario and Annamaria, we knew that we couldn’t do it without them. Mario Capuano is extremely well organized and experienced. He knows the ins and outs of this profession as he has been doing this for 20+ years. He is an honest and sincere man. He was very helpful and was always available and responsive to emails and phone calls. Early on, prior to the wedding season, we would skype for 1+ hour to organize everything. When the wedding day came, everything felt easy and worry free. Mario, Annamaria and Antonella were all genuinely invested in making our wedding day as magical and as happy as possible. Mario and his team have thought of every little detail. The photographers, Enrico Capuano and Gianni Coppola were excellent! Enrico was very nice, fast and professional. He knew where and when to take pictures and they turned out marvelous. Villa Eva was just what we had dreamed it would be. The weather was great, and the welcome drinks with the marvelous panoramic views in the background were just fairylike. The food was delicious and everyone is still raving about it. The DJ that Mario recommended was great. He kept everyone dancing until 3 am in the morning! In summary, the wedding was a very elegant success. If we had to do it all over again, we would not change a single thing. Mario, Annamaria, Enrico, Antonella, Simona and Gianni truly made our dreams come true. We highly recommend this team to any couple thinking about planning a wedding in Ravello. They organized our wedding day even better than we could have imagined and so memorable for all of our guests - everyone is asking if we can go back next year and do it all over again!
Review from Kate and Danil from Scotland : Thank you to Mario , Annamaria and Enrico Capuano for the most wonderful wedding day! We couldn't have asked for better wedding planners, with excellent correspondence and fast replies for may months they put our minds at rest and also made us feel at ease the moment we met them in person. True professionals and obviously have a passion for what they do. We couldn't recommend Wagner Tours enough to choose for your special day. We did not have a care in the world on our wedding day as we knew Mario & Annamaria had everything under control. We also would like to thank Enrico for being the most wonderful photographer. Every one of you made our day so special. A massive thank you for the best day of our lives in beautiful Ravello.
Testimonial from Catherine and Phillips : Our Beautiful Wedding We started looking to get married on the Amalfi Coast in June 2016, we approached a number of wedding planners who didn't either have the experience, responded slowly to emails as they were 'too busy' and charged extortionate fees. We started to feel deflated about whether we were making the right choice getting married abroad, then we emailed Mario Capuano and received a response within 5 minutes with all the information we had been searching for over 3 months. All the information he sent made it so easy and clear and we instantly knew we wanted to book our wedding with Wagner Tours and we secured a date within a few days. We went over to visit Villa Eva in October and even in the rain and cold weather it looked stunning and we knew that we had made the right choice and our guests would love it! Through every stage of the wedding Mario was professional and answered all our questions and concerns very quickly. Annamaria Staiano was a lovely, kind women who arranged transfers for all our guests from the airport and all the extra touches and attention to detail for the dressing of the venue. The flowers Annamaria arranged were out of this world, I have never seen anything like them they were beautiful. We had our wedding ceremony in the Duomo di Ravello in the main square which was amazing, Mario recommended we had a tenor, cello and violin for the mass which was fantastic and worked so well. The food and staff at the Villa Eva were 10/10 and all our guests said how lovely the appetizers and 5 course meal were. We had 2 photographers Enrico Capuano and Gianni Coppola who were both very professional and friendly and made us feel at ease all day. If you are thinking of getting married in Ravello do not hesitate to contact Wagner Tours, they wont let you down!
Review from Michelle and Christopher : Beautiful, perfect, breathtaking Ravello wedding - August . We planned our beautiful Ravello wedding in just 6 months and with our wedding planner Mario Capuano of Wagner Tours at the helm it was an absolute breeze. Mario is a true professional and he ensured our day ran smoothly from start to finish. Everything we had discussed and agreed upon via email in the months leading up to our wedding was executed perfectly. We were so impressed by Mario and his wonderful, polite and efficient team - Annamaria Staiano and Antonella Somma. They all helped to make our day so special - even more wonderful than we could ever have imagined - and for that we are eternally grateful.Our photographer was Enrico Capuano and the photographs he takes are the most beautiful, artistic and creative I have ever seen. He took us to some amazing locations for our photos and stayed until our last dance in order to capture all of the fun we were having. Thank you so much Enrico. We got married at Ravello Town Hall on the 18th of August and then our wedding party walked into the town square, accompanied by a mandolin and guitar player Tony and Alex, where we had prosecco and nibbles. This was such a fun experience due to the energy and charms of Tony and Alex. I can't put into words how it feels to walk through the beautiful cobbled streets of Ravello on your wedding day on a perfect summer's day surrounded by friends and family and being congratulated and clapped by people in the street. It was a truly magical moment - I just wish we could do it all again. We then had an amazing 6 course Italian feast at Da Tatore - on the terrace with sweeping, breath-taking views of the bay below. Thank you to chef Luca for such a wonderful and memorable dinner - every course was beautifully presented and full of wonderful flavours. Special mention for your amazing homemade breads. They are like works of art and have to be seen to be believed. Luca you are extremely talented indeed. And a huge thank you to the host Pino - what a true gentleman. Nothing was too much trouble. And finally a huge thank you to my hairdresser Andrea and make-up artist Adele. These 2 are truly talented people and I can't recommend them enough. So if you are thinking of getting married abroad - choose Italy, choose beautiful, romantic Ravello and above all choose Mario and his team as you will have the best day of your entire life.
Testimonial from Gemma and Allistair Breathtaking, happiness and perfect...the 3 words we used all day . We booked our wedding via Wagner tours over 18 months back. It wasn't a hard choice to choose Ravello as we went here on holiday 3 years before and it in-printed on our memories as the most beautiful place we had been together. we had looked doing an English wedding and living on the coast of England would have been ideal for a wedding. But something didn't sit right and we only wanted a small wedding with great weather and food and not done the traditional way.after much research I discovered Mario and his quick response and detail to what they could provide answered all our question. I would say it was difficult as we had to pay for cash for most things so this did leave us a little apprehensive, but still was worth it all. We selected 23/08/17 as the day to get married, which was a great choice as the cost was less and it made no difference to mid week as people were on their holidays with us too. Mario had managed to offer us great accommodation choices for all of our guests. Myself and 19 friends all stayed at Villa Laura ( Mario has really special rate on this villa ) , great views and facilities - we did the rehearsal meal for pizza and nothing was too much trouble and the food just kept on coming out...great pizza and views. I stayed the night before at Hotel Gioardano...small but lovely hotel. Massive pool, although very quiet again. Mario and Anna maria were amazing via email and face to face. I couldn't fault anything.. im just sad its all over. Special shout out to Anna Marie - she was smiling and happy and so very lovely every time we saw her. the day came and we got ready upstairs in Villa Eva and the views and the large space was amazing. the whole day went perfect the food was lovely and I struggled to eat most as I was excited and full :) great setting and lovely staff, the wedding cake and outside setting was perfect. we partied till 4am and the bar staff made sure the limoncello keep on coming :) We also would like to thank Enrico Capuano for being the most wonderful photographer, PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT thanks a million guys.
Review from Lynda and Brian : The perfect wedding!! We had been planning our wedding with Mario Capuano for quite some time (see previous review) and the big day finally came! I cannot express how perfect it was. Anna Maria arranged for Adele the make up artist and Geraldo the hairdresser to come to my hotel room and they got me and the bridesmaids ready for the day. I cannot recommend both Geraldo and Adele highly enough. They worked excellently together, were patient, professional and are so fantastic at what they do. Enrico Capuano the photographer and Pierre the videographer arrived and started filming and getting us ready to go. They were again amazing!! When we arrived at the gardens everything was in place and just spectacular. After the ceremony we went to the town square for drinks and then continued onto Villa Eva. Anna Maria had used our spare ribbons to tie around the menu's which was so thoughtful. The music, atmosphere, food all tied together wonderfully. I cannot recommend all of them more. They have gave us the perfect wedding day and for that I cannot thank them enough. If you are considering getting married in Ravello you must speak to Mario. He knows everything, is honest and gets things done. Anna Maria has incredible attention to detail and makes you feel so calm. They arranged a phenomenal wedding. We could not have had a better day, it was truly perfect. They were there behind the scenes making sure everything went like clockwork and ensured us a stress free wedding.
Testimonial from Suzanne and Jugdeep : Perfect Wedding Celebration!! My husband and I married on July and everything was perfect. Mario Capuano and his team went above and beyond to make sure not only the wedding day was perfect but the our entire stay in Ravello! My husband and I had both traveling to Ravello previously and love this part of Italy. If you are wanting to get married in Ravello, there really isnt another choice for planners than Mario Capuano and his team. Mario's office is located almost in the town square and he has relationships with all the vendors, so this makes things really easy. Mario's team include Annamaria Staiano and Antonella Somma who are all fantastic. One of the most surprising things for me was how fast they reply to emails. I had a lot of questions leading up to the wedding with final details. The team got back to me so quickly and really put my mind at ease. We had a total of 55 guests and Wagner tours helped with their accommodations, transfers to Ravello and even with day trips our guests wanted to take. We had a nice welcome party the evening before the wedding which was fabulous. ,Mario and Annamaria helped make this a really special event for us and our guests. We had an Indian themed party with dancing and a few Indian traditions which they helped make a reality. The food was fantastic and all our guests loved it. The following day was the wedding and Mario and team continued to be there for us and do a great job. Myself , my mom and bridesmaids all had our hair and makeup done through recommendations of Mario. All turned out fantastic, The town hall garden where we had the ceremony was magical. Enrico Capuano was our photographer, He was great taking pics for us throughout the events and very fun to work with, making us all comfortable. The reception was at Villa Eva, Annamaria helped with all the details making sure everything was in place. (photos attached) The food was fantastic and we were able to accommodate all special diets with gluten free and vegetarian options for our guests. We danced into the wee hours of the morning and our guests shared that this was the best wedding they had ever attended. I have to agree! So much fun and so many special memories I will cherish forever. We cant wait to return for our anniversary and see our friends at Wagner Tours again. We'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to the entire team. We had a fantastic time and can't say enough about Wagner tours. All our love and appreciation. Suzanne and Jugdeep Aggarwal
Review from Ireland Paul and Rachel :Our Wedding Day with Wagner Day Tours Thank You to Mario and his Team We had our Wedding in June 2017. After researching Ravello we came across Mario Capuano Wedding Planner. His reviews were fantastic and we visited him in January 2016. We went to Wagner Tours office and we were greeted by the very friendly and helpful Antonella and Simona Wagner Tours Team. (Antonella warmly welcomed us again in October and in June for our Wedding.) Then we met Mario and Enrico Capuano – Photographer. They asked us what type of wedding we were looking for, and then brought us to visit a church and a Villa. It was wintertime but Ravello still looked picturesque! Enrico showed us some of his portfolio which really set the scene for us while at the same time showing us his quality of photography. We discussed dates with Mario and then returned home. In a few days we booked our wedding for the following June. After we booked our Wedding, Mario sent us options regarding Paperwork, Menu, Music, Flowers etc. This made decision making very straight forward and easy. In October 2016 we went to Ravello to finalize some details this was an amazing experience as the tasting takes place over fabulous views and the food was delicious! Working alongside Mario is Annamaria Staiano Wedding Planner. Both Mario and Annamaria were involved in our Wedding planning and details. We worked with them mostly through email. We had a large wedding but Mario helped our guests with accommodation, transport, dietary requirements etc. I had many requests but all of them were responded to within minutes! On the few days before the wedding we talked about the Wedding stationery/ reception details wth Annamaria. The day of the Wedding everything was exactly like we discussed and organized by Annamaria beautifully in the Villa. The food for the wedding was superb! From the welcome party appetizers to the meal, our guests were amazed by the menu and drinks. The guests loved the cake and the wine served also! The service in Villa Eva during the meal was excellent! The staff was very friendly, efficient and relaxed. We had been to Villa Eva a few times before the Wedding Day but we were still blown away by the flowers, gardens and views. Very little extras are needed as the place speaks for itself. Even though we planned the wedding with Mario and his team we were in awe of the day, the music in the church, the toast in the square, the beautiful scenery, how relaxed we were and how much everyone enjoyed the day. Ravello is a fabulous place and because of the organization and professionalism of Mario and his team it allowed us to relax and enjoy the day in stunning scenery. If you are thinking about going to Ravello for your Wedding then we highly recommend you book Mario as your Wedding planner then go with Mario's team, suppliers, photographer, videographer, hair stylist, beautician, florist, musicians and trust his suggestions!We had an amazing day and loved every minute. Thank You for a perfect wedding! Rachel and Paul
Testimonial from U.k. Tom and Laura : Dream Wedding Day! We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Mario, Annamaria and Enrico and all at Wagner Tours for turning our wedding day dream into a reality! We had a blessing ceremony with 86 guests at Villa Eva on and it literally surpassed all our expectations and we were all completely blown away by not just the day itself but the whole week. We only came to visit once and it was our first time to the Amalfi Coast but as soon as we arrived it just felt right. We knew we were in safe hands - the reviews all speak for themselves!! If you want a stress free wedding that's totally different to anything you've ever been to before then chose Villa Eva and the Wagner Tours team! Mario was great in responding quickly to any questions we had. There is a lot of information he will send through to you leading up to the day but we enjoyed mulling it all over with a glass of wine and making our decisions and even asking to tweak some things from their preferred format which they accommodated so well. (Sorry again for changing my mind about the chairs and flowers just a few weeks before!!) I want to give a special thank you to Annamaria for organising transfers for 86 people from Naples to Ravello and all the little bits in between! We must have been a total nightmare but you took it all in your stride! You are so caring and kind and made me feel so calm on the day (I am normally quite a nervous person!) You work so incredibly hard yet manage to make us feel like we were the only wedding you had. I will be eternally grateful! You are my new best friend Enrico, you were snapping away all day and were a joy to have around! We cannot wait to see the photo's. Thank you for keeping us both so calm and doing exactly what we requested. A number of people came up to us and said it was one of the best weddings they'd ever been too and that for us speaks volumes. The waiters, food, drinks... all amazing! One of my biggest fears was that no one would dance - I didn't have to worry. The dance floor was rammed all night and we literally had to be kicked out at 4am!! Which brings me onto the DJ!... I was worried our list was a bit random so asked him to vibe off the crowd and he did that perfectly! He mixed the songs well and played such a brilliant array. We didn't need a band! The Pianist and String Trio were fabulous too. So so talented and set the tone perfectly. So elegant, just what we wanted. I wish we could do it all over again. Memories for life! If you are thinking of getting married here - just do it! Mario and his team take all the stress away and will give you the wedding of your dreams (and more!) We will be eternally grateful & are so proud to be part of the Wagner tours family now! All our love, Tom and Laura (family Robinson) xxx
Review from Dianne and John : Breathtaking location, Outstanding service from Wagner Tours My husband & I married on 7th July in Ravello....a place like no other. Simply breathtaking. After getting engaged in December I began looking at Italy as our dream wedding destination. I put a lot of time and effort into my search and there was many a beautiful place to chose from but it was Ravello that grabbed our attention from the outset. Anyone potentially looking at this destination for their own wedding cannot deny the gorgeous views and exemplary reviews that Wagner Tours Wedding receive. However, it is not until you arrive that you can fully appreciate why. I am not the most organised person by nature and even Mario (owner of Wagner Tours) joked about me being a laid back bride who would often take a while to reply. But despite this Mario had everything in hand, he responded to each email quickly - most often within the hour! The transfer from Naples airport to Ravello was little short of a couple of hours but I could of easily sat there longer taking in the beauty this part of the world had to offer. We stayed in Hotel Giordano which is very central and just across from Mario's office. It is highly recommended by us. Very clean, large pool with picturesque views and friendly staff. On our wedding day everything ran smoothly - you are fully prepped by Mario in advance of how things will run. The setting of the Town Hall Gardens where we said our vows is fairy tale like and everything we had imagined plus more. After the ceremony we had a toast in the main square before myself and my husband left our guests to have photos taken in Villa Rufolo Gardens. The fee is 150 euros just to get in and be allowed to have photographs taken but in my opinion very, very worth it! We then met our guests at Villa Maria where we had another toast with canapes and the speeches were performed. The meal at Villa Maria was outstanding! 6 courses left us all stuffed but each course was as yummy as the last. AnneMarie (Wagner Tours) did an absolutely amazing job of setting out my tableware and decorations for the day. Lovely lady! The whole experience was so special. I am just gutted it was all over so quickly..cant wait to return for our anniversary. If you are considering Ravello as a destination and Wagner Tours as a wedding planner and Enrico Capuano like photographer then stop considering and just go for it! You won't regret it!
Testimonial from April and Mike: Our wedding day We used Wagner Tours to plan our wedding in Ravello in June and can 100% recommend using Mario, Annamaria and everyone at Wagner Tours to plan your wedding! Our day was absolutely perfect because of these lovely people! They are very professional but at the same time friendly, caring and make you feel completely at ease. The care and attention they put into making your day perfect for you is amazing. Nothing is too much trouble - every little detail was taken into consideration and all my ideas were listened to and turned into reality. I’ve also never known anyone reply to emails so quickly! We planned the whole wedding over e-mail but they still managed to take the image in my head of my dream wedding day and turn it into a reality! Firstly Ravello is amazing and we feel so lucky to say we got married in such a beautiful town. Every person we spoke to was so friendly and kind and the views are just stunning. We didn’t want to leave! We started our celebrations with a Pizza Party at Da Salvatore Restaurant which was so much fun. The food was amazing and the staff at Salvatore were friendly and made us feel so welcome joining in with our jokes and making a lovely happy and fun atmosphere for the evening. The florists done an amazing job with the flowers. They were fresh, beautiful and so pretty. And the perfect colour and style exactly what we wanted! – I’m not sure how they managed to get it to match the colour of the bridesmaid dress and men’s ties so perfectly when it had all been arranged over email! Our ceremony was perfect. The flowers had been arranged to perfection and included all the personal details we had requested. We had a violin and Cello during our ceremony and guitar and mandolin duo for our toast in the town square and to walk us from the ceremony to our reception. Everyone loved the musicians! They added such a great atmosphere to the day and were very talented. All our guests have said how brilliant they were and how much fun they had listening and singing along to the music. Enrico Capuano and Pier our photographer and videographer worked so hard and spent hours with us to capture every moment of our special day. They made us feel comfortable and at ease the whole time and were both professional and friendly. Our reception was held at Villa Maria Restaurant and everything was fantastic – our glasses were never empty and the food was amazing! Our guests are still talking now about how much food they got and how tasty it all was. Mario even wrote off our bar bill after we went over budget on our bar tab! This was followed by drinks at the Hotel Giordano bar. Again we were never without a drink in our glass and the staff even moved our cake from Villa Maria to Hotel Giordano to eat later on in the evening as we were so full after our meal! Nothing was too much trouble. Annamaria made everything look beautiful and managed to bring the dreams of my perfect wedding to real life! She included every little detail that we had talked about and everything was amazing. Such a lovely lady who made us feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Mario is just amazing and I don’t think we have met anyone who works as hard as him! Without all his hard work, answering all my emails so quickly over the last year and a half and organising everything for us, from the big things to the tiny details, our day would not have been so perfect. So helpful and reassuring and again nothing is too much trouble. We were a very small wedding with only 21 guests but still felt we were treated the same as a party with over 100 guests as Mario cares so much about every single wedding he plans and you can see that in the outcome, as everything runs so smoothly as everything is planned so well due to the huge amount of effort put in. We are so happy we chose Wagner Tours to plan our wedding day. We wouldn’t change a thing and wish we could do it all over again!
Testimonial from Ruth and Matt Our dream wedding .Where do we even start?! Our wedding at Villa Eva in Ravello was just incredible, thanks to our amazing wedding planners Mario Capuano and Annamaria Staiano at Wagner Tours. Everything totally exceeded our expectations and we had the best day we could ever have imagined. If you're thinking about getting married in Ravello then there's really no need to look any further than Wagner Tours. They are the experts - just put your faith in them and your wedding day will be perfect. We're from the UK and had never even been to Ravello before - we planned the entire thing with Mario via hundreds of emails. People thought we were crazy trusting a wedding planner we had never met, in a place we had never been to, but we're so glad we did. He is so organised, hardworking and honest and knows everything there is to know about Ravello weddings. He also has the best sense of humour and our guests are still talking about how likeable and funny he was! Mario and Annamaria and Enrico Capuano are the nicest, friendliest people you could wish to meet and you will love them as soon as you meet them. You can tell they live and breathe weddings and they work so hard - Annamaria listened carefully to how we wanted the villa decorated and it looked perfect. They also didn't leave our wedding until we did, at 3am! Mario's son Enrico Capuano is a very talented photographer and so friendly and we would also recommend Pier Canta who is a fantastic videographer. DJ Alonso is brilliant and also Tony and Claud on the guitar and mandolin who followed us through the streets of Ravello. The tourists all clapped, cheered and congratulated us when we walked into the square which was surreal and something we'll never forget. We were just completely blown away by Villa Eva and can't believe how lucky we were to find such a stunning venue. It was so much bigger than we thought and the grounds and views were incredible. It really was like a fairytale. Finally... Ravello itself is the most beautiful Italian village and we just want to return again and again. It was so lovely to have all our family and friends staying in Ravello to celebrate before and after the wedding and our guests all seemed to fall in love with the place as much as we did. Thank you so much Mario and Annamaria and everyone else involved in making our dream a reality. We will never ever forget the day and just wish we could do it all over again. We will definitely be back to see you soon! :)
Review from Adam and Lizzi Our Dream Wedding at Villa Eva - My husband and I have just returned from our wedding and mini moon and thought it absolutely necessary to share our wonderful experience with everyone. Mario Capuano, Annamaria Sataiano, Enrico Capuano and at Wagner Tours managed to perform the impossible by making me (someone that is normally very difficult to please and a perfectionist) have the most perfect wedding day. We have been in contact with both Mario and Annamaria for 15 months planning our special day and both have been nothing but accommodating with all of our requests. Everything we wanted was sorted and if anything was an issue they would let us know straight away. We visited Wagner Tours several times over the last 15 months just to make sure everything was going to plan. When Mario could see that I was fairly stressed about making sure everything was perfect he turned to me and said 'Elizabeth you do not need to be stressed, you can relax I take the stress from you so you do not need to worry' - he was so right! I am a person that likes to be in control but I soon learnt to leave the planning to the experts! Now on to the day - I simply do not know where to start! It was a perfect day and all of our guests were left stunned by the beautiful ceremony in the Town Hall gardens and the magical and captivating views at Villa Eva. Everything went to plan. The flowers were incredible and from someone whose Mother In Law is a flower arranger I felt under pressure to impress...they did not disappoint. My Mother In Law on the day came up to me and said the flowers were the best she has ever seen at a wedding, they were simply beautiful! Annamaria ensured that the special touches were made on the day and every detail had been thought of. The tables looked truly wonderful. My 22 month old niece was a flower girl at the wedding but by the time the meal started it was time for her bed time, therefore my sister spoke to Annamaria. Annamaria was so so helpful in speaking to a few people to ensure that my sister could take her to the hotel and have her baby sat so she could come back and enjoy the party. The whole day went smoothly which takes me back to Mario's earlier comment about me having a stress free day and him being the one stressed organising. Mario let us enjoy our day and appeared only when we needed him to - he just seemed to arrive out of the blue! It was perfect! We had the best day and all our guests are still talking about it calling it 'the best wedding they have EVER been to'. We partied until 4am and was utterly devastated when it had to end! I wish I could relive the whole day over again! Lots of Love Adam & Lizzie Lane xxx
Testimonial from Lauren and Ben :It is impossible to put into words how amazing our wedding was, it was simply the best day of our lives! We wanted an intimate and relaxed wedding and couldn't have chosen a more perfect destination than Ravello, it is such a romantic place and everywhere you go there are breathtaking views.When we initially contacted a couple of wedding planners on the Amalfi coast, Mario Capuano by far stood out as the one to go with. From our initial contact with him right up until the big day, Mario and his team were extremely helpful and always so fast to come back to us with answers to any questions we had. You can be assured that anything you think of, they will have thought of already and will be able to answer your questions and put your mind at ease.We never visited Ravello before our wedding and were so pleased we decided not to as it made it all feel that much more special. We trusted in Mario and his team and were absolutely right to do so. Mario provided detailed information on the different venue options and helped us chose the right venue . It was absolutely beautiful, like something from a fairy tale! Everything was planned so well so that we didn't have to think about anything other than each other on the day. We met with Mario and his team 2 days before the wedding to make the final preparations and instantly felt relaxed and assured that it would be as we had imagined. In fact, the wedding day exceeded all our expectations and we couldn't have imagined it being any better. We can't thank Mario and everyone involved in our big day enough, we loved every second of it and keep saying we just want to do it all again!
Review from Tom and Collette : Our magical wedding My husband Tom and I were married in Ravello on September my only regret is we can't do it all again it's was magical. We booked our wedding through Mario Capuano at Wagner Tours Wedding and Weddings without ever visiting Amalfi . We are so blessed we found him, from day one information flowed from Mario and Annamaria covering every aspect of what was to be our perfect day We arrived in amalfi to be blown away by its beauty Ravello is the most beautiful place villa Eva was another wow . We met with Mario and Annmarie who put all worries aside they had everything covered he found me the amazing band we wanted everything down to the last detail was taken care of . To the wedding day from start to end it was perfect more than we could ever imagine it truly was magical it blew all our expectations out of the water . I met Enrico Capuano our photographer in the wedding morning after seeing his work we had high expectations and we were not disappointed , we have just received our photos it captured the atmosphere of our day so perfect it felt like we were reliving it . He makes you so at ease you don't realise he's there and the photos we received captured moments we weren't aware of which was wonderful. The gardens at the town hall were just beautiful . We had the cello and violins playing there was not a dry eye with our guests it was so romantic . We had a toast in the square where all our guests celebrated we slipped off to villa ruffalo for photos which is a must make sure you book it for photos it's stunning . Villa Eva what can I say the gasp from our guests when they saw it and the views said it all . The food was outstanding as was the service and drinks . The times during the wedding from our guests I heard how romantic magical it was and they felt like they were in a celebrity wedding . I've had friends and family message me telling me they will never in their life time ever go to a wedding that could beat it and how it is a memory they will have for the rest of their life .Too me that says it all what more can I say . Other than Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts Mario Annmarie and Enrico for managing our perfect day it truly was magical. Much love Tom and Collette xxxNext Page Reviews
