7th September , Esther Orpe and Karl Brazil – one of the top-rated British session drummers, best known as the drummer of the Welsh indie rock band Feeder, and for working with many big name pop and rock bands, including Robbie Williams – were married in what was certainly the celebrity wedding of the year.
This lavish wedding took place in our fabulous town of Ravello and was organized by the wedding planners at Ravello Events.
Esther and Karl celebrated their wedding day with 110 guests who included a number of the couple’s VIP friends.
This celebrity wedding was kept hush-hush because Esther and Karl wanted to have an intimate wedding with their families and friends attending and they did not wanted to have any glamour or publicity surrounding their special day.
We got to know Esther and Karl well while planning for their wedding and we have to admit, they’re very special people!
Although Karl is used to being in the limelight and mixing with very high profile personalities, he his such a playful person, very relaxed and friendly and very attached to his family.
Details of Esther and Karl’s Wedding Ceremony and Reception
The couple’s Catholic wedding ceremony was very traditional and very sweet. It took place in the Santa Maria Assunta church in Ravello, Ravello’s main cathedral, often referred to as the Duomo Church.
The wedding day began quite early afternoon very early and the wedding ceremony started at 3 p.m.
The church was decorated with lovely white flowers and white flower petals were scattered along the aisle.
The most romantic moment during the wedding ceremony was when the couple’s son brought their wedding rings to them – it was so sweet!
After the ceremony, the wedding group moved to the San Domingo bar , for an abundance of appetisers and aperitives served outdoors, on Ravello’s mian square and accompanied by the a Neapolitan duo playing and singing traditional music.
The guests were absolutely wowed by the organization of the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the food, drinks and music, on the square.

Esther, a lovely petite brunette wore her hair in a sleek low chignon with a lovely tiara. Her strapless sweetheart wedding dress, featured a decorated bodice and delicate long tulle skirts.
Bride Esther looked breathtakingly pretty in her beautiful wedding gown and groom Karl looked very handsome indeed in elegant black tie.
The Villa Where Esther and Karl Got Married
The wedding reception took place in the romantic and elegant Villa Eva, which is reached via a cobbled path that winds its way up from Ravello’s main square towards the top of the mountain.
This was the special location where Esther and Karl’s family and friends were welcomed and looked after during the wedding day.
Villa Eva is a splendid villa in late liberty style, with a protracted harmonic outline which has been redecorated with care and respect for the original style. It is an ideal location for weddings, ceremonies,
banquets and other special events.
As the villa is used exclusively for events, it is an entirely exclusive venue, so wedding groups don’t have to worry about sharing the wonderful spaces with other events, groups or individuals.
Located in the heart of Ravello’s historic centre, Villa Eva is a jewel immersed in a vast 3000m² park of centenary trees and, thanks to its position, the villa’s roof is the highest point in Ravello, offering a splendid 360° panorama of the coast far below.
The villa’s refined and elegant dining halls with large glass windows and doors brighten the spaces and add to Villa Eva’s unique and unmistakable style.
Thanks to soundproofing and wonderful acoustics, the after-dinner wedding party carried on until well into the early hours of the morning with dancing, a DJ and great live music provided by some of Karl’s musician friends.
It was an absolutely amazing party!
