For most couples of 2020, the Covid crisis has brought a desolating stop to their wedding preparations. Hoping that soon we will see the light at the end of the tunnel, we would like to take you on a beautiful journey to the magical Amalfi coast. A wedding on the Amalfi Coast is a dream come true, a memorable experience for those who always fancied getting married by the sea.
Combining Italy’s mountainous coastline’s enchanting beauty, with its sweeping views of the blue Mediterranean sea, the colorful and scenic villages, and the sensational food and wine, the Amalfi Coast is the synonym of luxury and romance. With its picturesque towns such as Ravello, Amalfi and Positano, and the seaside villages such as Praiano, Cetara, Maiori – just to name a few – it is the perfect location for an unforgettable wedding. Whether you want a luxury wedding, or prefer a more intimate ceremony, or even if you cherish a private affair just for two, we will help you find the ideal place to host your event.
Let us present to you our favorite options on the Amalfi Coast.
Once a small fisherman’s village, it is now a famous resort in Italy renowned for its wonderful colorful houses clinging to the rocky slopes and overlooking the sea.
Catholic weddings in Positano are usually celebrated in the Chiesa dell’Assunta, located right above the Spiaggia Grande. Civil ceremonies in Positano are held on the City Hall’s terrace overlooking the sea or in some dedicated venues. For a memorable wedding in Positano, here are some of the best options we can propose to you.
Villa Magia is a fabulous place to exchange your vows, with its sweeping terrace overlooking the rooftops of Positano. It is the ideal place for an elopement wedding or an intimate one with up to 30 guests.
A five-star luxury hotel for those who want the best of the best is Villa TreVille. This venue, surrounded by lush gardens and secluded terraces, is one of the most exclusive locations for a lavish wedding on the Amalfi Coast.
It is also trendy to celebrate weddings in Positano in exclusive private villas that combine elegant architecture with a modern twist offering all comforts. Their large terraces and gardens boost a fantastic view of the sea.
Our favorite? Villa Oliviero, a luxurious private villa with six bedrooms and a 5-star hotel’s services, can host weddings up to 120 persons on their gorgeous terraces for those who privilege privacy.
Amalfi is a graceful place and is considered one of the pearls of the Amalfi Coast.
To celebrate a catholic wedding in Amalfi, the Duomo would be a superb location, being the most beautiful church on the entire Amalfi Coast. Constructed on a relatively high hill, this masterpiece of architecture, dominates the town’s most famous square. Planning a more intimate wedding? You may want to consider a catholic ceremony in the secluded chapel of Sant’Antonio. Civil marriages can be held inside a former Benedictine Convent dating from the 12th century.
One of the most renowned locations is undoubtedly the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, the only place able to host a Catholic wedding, a civil ceremony, or a symbolic one. Originally a 13th-century monastery, this fantastic hotel is perched on the top of a cliff and allows you to enjoy a spectacular view of the Amalfi Coast. Its Belvedere terrace overlooking the sea, the panoramic restaurant, the cloister, the “promenade” of the monks are the crucial elements that make it an exceptional location for a unique site.
Another one of our favorite places is the Santa Caterina Hotel. With its 19th century liberty style architecture, the beautiful internal garden with many suggestive olive groves and orchids, and its famous restaurant set in the rock, it will be an elegant setting for your event.
Ravello is a quiet and charming town. This hidden treasure of the Amalfi coast sits on a hilltop, above the Mediterranean sea, like a luxuriant terraced garden with an unforgettable panorama. Less crowded than the sea towns of Amalfi and Positano, it offers many luxury facilities and private villas for your event.
A lavish catholic wedding can be celebrated in the stunning 11th century Duomo of Santa Maria Assunta. For a more intimate ceremony, the old and beautiful church of Santa Maria a Gradillo is an absolute treasure. Another alternative is the magnificent baroque church of San Francesco d’Assisi located in a secluded area, far from the main Piazza and the touristic pathways. For a civil wedding in Ravello, couples can choose between Palazzo Tolla (the City Hall) and the spectacular Giardini Della Principessa di Piemonte gardens with a terrace that overlooks the whole Amalfi coast!
Villa Cimbrone, in our opinion, is the most prestigious location for small or medium-sized exclusive wedding receptions. Welcome cocktails can be served on the panoramic terrace or at the Mediterranean garden, while the sit-down dinner will take place in the stunning crypt with Gothic arches and colonnades.
The Belmond Caruso Hotel offers an equally picturesque view. The garden is embellished with olive groves and rose gardens and is a beautiful and romantic place for a symbolic wedding and an evening reception.
The Villa La Rondinaia (The Swallow’s Nest) is undoubtedly one of the most stunning private villas on the Amalfi Coast. Its incomparable beauty, scenic panoramas, and famous and illustrious guests who have enjoyed this splendid location make it the quintessence for any grand style event.
There are many choices on the Amalfi Coast for stunning venues that would be perfect for an unforgettable ceremony and reception. No wonder this place is one of the most popular locations for destination weddings in Italy.
From the terraces and splendid pergolas overlooking the sea to luxurious hotels and trendy restaurants, up to the elegant private villas and their gardens with majestic scenery, we will help you create memories to last a lifetime!
