Destination Weddings in Positano

John Steinbeck describes Positano as “It bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”


Small pastel houses hang almost miraculously from steep hills dropping vertically into the sea. Bright purple and red bursts of bougainvillea bushes contrast with the white and pastel colors of the buildings. The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta with its majolica tile dome can be seen from everywhere and is an ideal setting for a Catholic wedding in Positano.

At the top of Positano is one of Italy’s favorite civil wedding halls where, weather permitting (and it usually does here!), you can marry on a terrace overlooking the bright blue sky and an incredibly blue ocean.

Needless to say, wedding photos in Positano will be the highlight of the event. Flowering gardens hidden in luxury villas and palaces are just one of the possible backdrops for your wedding album. The beach at the feet of Positano with the majestic cathedral in the background is another. At every corner there is a unique view your photographer will take advantage of.

For an unforgettable reception there are ocean view restaurants and many elegant villa hotels with gardens, lovely views and superb food and wine. The Amalfi Coast has some of the finest food in Italy and your reception will be long remembered.

Start your romantic honeymoon in Italy with Positano and explore nearby towns such as Ravello, Amalfi and the isle of Capri; you will want to return again and remember this land of sunshine and happy people.
