Kirsty and Fergus’s Italian Destination Wedding

This wedding charmed us with its stunning simplicity, amazing photography and breathtaking location.

Melbourne couple Kirsty and Fergus eloped to their favourite place in the world, Italy. They chose to wed on a beautiful cliff top and hold their reception at Villa Cimbrone. Kirsty explains, “Fergus and I have been together for nine very happy years so we know each other back to front and inside out. When we first got engaged in July 2012 we started to plan a wedding in Melbourne for 100 people that quite quickly became everything that frightened us about weddings. All those people and all those details, we were flustered whenever we talked about it, being such very private people. In January 2013 we decided to shift gears completely and elope to our favourite place in the world, Italy. We had attended the most beautiful wedding of our very close aunt and uncle three years before in Positano on the Amalfi Coast, and had fallen in love with the country. So the choice of Italy made perfect sense in our hearts.”

After getting ready together at stunning Villa Cimbrone, the bride, groom and the brides best friend walked for 15 minutes down the cobblestone streets to the piazza on their way to the ceremony. Kirsty recalls, “Walking that 15 minutes was the happiest, most beautiful, joyous 15 minutes of my life. It was like a dream. Local Italians and tourists stopped and cheered, ‘Auguri’ they all called, taking photos, watching us walk by like royalty and clapping. I have never smiled so much, felt so beautiful, or felt so much love from strangers and my husband-to-be as I did on that walk. The piazza broke out in applause as we met Ferg’s family and it is a moment I will never forget.”

The beautiful couple organised their destination wedding with the assistance of Marry Me Abroad. “It was as easy as choosing the place, sending through pictures of what we wanted, answering queries and booking our flights. All the dreaded ‘wedding drama’ that so many of our friends had warned us about seemed a million miles away. Added to that was the fact that I seemed to be missing the bride gene and didn’t feel stressed about anything to do with the wedding day, only excited to be marrying my best friend. Fergus chose Ravello, reputed as the most beautiful town on the Amalfi Coast, we booked our flights and off we went,” says Kirsty.
