We stumbled across Don Pedro by accident when searching for locations around Italy to get married. After reading all the reviews and seeing pictures of the beautiful Sorrento we decided it was meant to be. We sent an email to Don Pedro and within 24hrs we got a response introducing himself and what he could offer us for a wedding package.
From day one we had regular conversations with Don, Tony and Marcella, planning everything down to the finest detail and all the while putting our minds at ease over any converns. We paid our deposits with no worries and from then on Tony kept up the contact with us arranging flowers, the menu and the ceremony.
Time flew by and before we knew it we was boarding the plane to meet with Don Pedro and his family. We met Tony in the square that evening and had a coffee and a chat and we loved him! Such a genuine guy and he also gave us a bottle of beautiful homemade pink proseco. We arranged to meet the next morning to be taken off to meet Don Pedro and have lunch at his place to confirm all the final details etc.
We met all of his family and they are all fantastic and nothing was to much trouble, Don Pedro's partner Marchella was preparing the lunch whilst we was shown around Don Pedro plot which is beautiful and he grows all his own vegetables and herbs etc.
Our lunch was absolutely delicious and all so fresh with the mozzarella being delivered an hour prior, it was buffalo as my partner has allegies which Don Pedro was totally thoughtful about which he also brought out gluten free bread.
On the day of the wedding Don Pedro was in four places at once and I asked if he had any identical brothers!! He was making sure everything ran to clockwork. And it all did perfectly! We got a professional service with all the joy of a very big occasion for us both.
Unfortunately my partner was poorly on the day so we missed out on a few surprises Don Pedro had arranged so we went straight to the restaurant where the mandolin and guitar players were there entertaining the guests.
The restaurant was set up beautifully and way beyond what we expected. The big introduction and the service from the whole family was faultless. The food was 5 star and everybody is still talking about it two weeks after the day.
When we said our goodbyes to the family it was like saying goodbye to our own family and was quite sad because from day one we felt like one of their own and was made to feel so welcomed and nothing was to much trouble no matter how big the problem.
Thank you Don Pedro and all the family for a beautiful day and wonderful holiday.
