S&S: the golden years!


a 50th Wedding Anniversary
planned by Wedding Amalfi

A lifetime love-story between a world-famous Italian Ship Commander and his wife!

When a couple reaches such a milestone, it’s customary to renew love promises with a religious ceremony,
just like the time the very first ‘Yes, I do’ was pronounced.

From South Africa, S&S came back to Italy to celebrate one of the most important moments of their life!




Their love story began more than 50 years ago.
Sandra and Salvatore were just two teenagers who lived a few meters away in a neighborhood of Southern Italy;
She was the most beautiful girl Salvatore had ever seen and he was the most lively guy she had ever known.
How not to fall madly in love?

Since their first meeting, they have spent their lives together among sea, projects, dreams, ships and family.
Salvatore step from the Navy to become president of MSC Cruises in South Africa traveling all over the World and
reaching the most important life goals with Sandra by his side. Nowadays, Salvatore is best-known as the Captain of
Shosholoza, the Italian man who challenged the America’s Cup letting people remember the last name Sarno.

On the occasion of their 50th Wedding Anniversary, the boundless love for the sea and their roots
brought them back to their hometown in the Church of Saints Simon and Judas Thaddeus
to celebrate their love again and again.

After an intimate religious ceremony, the couple held a total golden party in Capo d’Orso inviting
their guests to a Michelin-starred dinner in the prestigious restaurant Il Faro di Capo D’Orso.

The most special event for the most special people in the flawless setting of the Amalfi Coast planned with ‘all the love in the World’!

Thanks a million to the Sarno Family for choosing my team and I for the third time as the planners of their events.
