This Gown Designer and Her Groom Tied the Knot at Casa Privata on the Amalfi Coast

April 6, 2018 | juliette

Between the olive groves, the lemon-inspired details, and the stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, this Amalfi Coast wedding at Casa Privata is as dreamy as they come! The ancient fishing village of Praiano is one of the most popular stops on this famous coastline, which should come as no surprise after you see this jaw-dropping shots captured by photographer Karin Lundin. After a secluded ceremony in the groves that looked like it was plucked right out of Mamma Mia, Malin and Ricard joined their guests under a canopy of hanging candles for a night of dancing, spoon games, and live music. The true showstoppers of the day, though, were the stunning appliquéd wedding gown and lavender lace bridesmaids dresses from By Malina, the bride’s personal fashion brand. Every detail of this Casa Privata wedding was infused with the romance and charm of Italy, and we simply can’t get enough!

The Couple:

Malin and Ricard

The Wedding:

Casa Privata, Praiano, Italy

We used to live in Italy when we first got together and got engaged in Puglis, so we were sure we wanted to get married in Italy. We looked at many places but have always loved Amalfi, Praiano, and Positano the most. 

The garden ceremony was a true Mamma Mia moment. All our best friends, family, and our kids were gathered under olive threes in front of the Mediterranean Sea. It was such a magic moment for us!

I designed and created my own dress along with my company, By Malina. It took one month so sew all the leaves to the huge skirt. It’s not really me to have such a big dress but, since I’ll only get marry once, I figured why not! All my bridesmaids had lavender lace off-the-shoulder dresses, boho hair, and wreaths with flowers from the garden. It was all was very relaxed and beautiful.
