Weddings & Special Events
Before the party:
Guest “welcoming” cocktails/other drinks, canapés & hot finger-food.
“Serenading troubadour(s)” with guitar or mandolin, or other traditional Neapolitan musicians. Unobtrusive CD music selected by our staff “DJ.” (Italian classical or “universally romantic) Guests are also invited to bring their own favourite CDs.
Open bar. Small guitar/keyboard group for dancing*
*NOTE: In consideration for other guests, we must curtail loud music in the late evening, but a disco or small combo for after-dinner dancing can be arranged if all rooms are taken by party guests.
No music is permitted after mid-night by local statute.
Small, traditional touches
“Bomboniere” – small, souvenir gift packages for the guests, usually containing sugared almonds. Neapolitan artigianale ice-creams; a traditional wedding cake (light, lemon sponge) & other special patisserie.
Room and table settings
Also for discussion and costing would be the general décor for the occasion, including arrangements of fresh flowers, table centre-pieces, etc.
Spaces & capacity*
• Dining room - 40-50 covers, all guest seated. Any table configuration - 20-30 would not be unusual on an assembly of rectangular tables or arranged in a U-shape.
• Glass-walled Reception Room: up to 100 people seated - more if standing at a cocktail party.
• Three belvedere terraces: between 80-100 guests on each
*These are recommended maximums for each area to avoid over-crowding & inconvenience to other guests. Hosting larger parties would be possible, but by over-spilling from one space to another.
NOTE: Exclusive use of these areas and the hire of additional waiting/bar staff may incur additional costs, depending on numbers & catering arrangements.
