I have photographed weddings on the Amalfi coast in Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, Capri and Ravello. Each of these destinations is uniquely different from the next however in general all Amalfi Coast Weddings should somehow feature the incredible scenery.
Sorrento is probably the most popular of these locations by number of weddings alone, it is not uncommon to see multiple weddings on the same day and so if you are seeking exclusivity you should check if there is a couple immediately before or after you for a civil wedding, otherwise you might see another bride waiting outside.
Positano is perhaps the most picturesque from a distance but somewhat limited once you are in the town due to the very steep streets and steps and tiny size of the actual centre. If you are considering Positano as a wedding destination I would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of this location from a photographic point of view.
Capri is a lovely island and has a unique character that always impresses. Please bear in mind that the travel expenses for Capri are higher due to the car park fees at the port and hydrofoil tickets required to reach the island. If you require photography after 8pm then you will also have to pay for accommodation as this is when the last boat leaves to go back to Naples.
As a wedding photographer Ravello is a great location. The gorgeous hotels such as Hotel Caruso or breathtaking villas like Villa Cimbrone are truly memorable places. Ravello is further away from Naples and is strangely less well known. The little town that dominates the coast line is far less touristy and so has a more exclusive feeling. The town hall is very quaint and there are three churches to choose from for a religious wedding including the impressive Duomo di Ravello that dominates the main square. For blessings and symbolic ceremonies many of the gardens of the villas and hotels offers amazing views of the coastline.
If you think the Amalfi coast could be the right place for your wedding you can fly into Naples and then easily visit the coast and surrounding locations in a few days. Even if you don’t get married on the Amalfi coast it is a lovely place to visit.
