Getting Married on the Amalfi Coast

Special offers

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most popular locations for destination weddings in Italy, both because of its breathtaking scenery and because of the vast number of unforgettable venues perfect for a flawless ceremony and reception, including hotels and villas overlooking the dramatic coastline and deep blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Here are some practical tips to help you organize your wedding on the Amalfi Coast. With enough advance planning, you can take care of all the arrangements yourself, though we suggest hiring a wedding planner locally, especially if you live far from Italy. A professional wedding planner can help you with paperwork, organize transfers, and handle all the complicated logistics of planning an event on the coast, and even suggest photographers, musicians, florists, and other trusted local vendors.

A tip: try to begin your wedding planning at least a year in advance, as many of the most beautiful venues on the coast book up fast. In some cases, including the Duomo in Amalfi, you have to reserve at least two years in advance!

Church Weddings on the Amalfi Coast

All the churches on the Amalfi Coast are Catholic; you can hold a Protestant wedding in private venues. As opposed to Capri and Sorrento, the diocese of Amalfi will allow weddings in local churches even when the couple is not a resident of the Amalfi Coast.

Weddings in Positano are usually celebrated in the Chiesa dell’Assunta, located right above the Spiaggia Grande. In Amalfi , couples can exchange their vows in the majestical Duomo di Sant’Andra. Many couples choose to hold their wedding in the intimate church of San Pancrazio in Conca dei Marini. In Praiano, the church of San Gennaro is a beautiful backdrop, with a church portico overlooking the sea. All these venues, especially the Duomo in Amalfi, are booked far in advance so try to reserve your date at least a year ahead of time.

Documents Required for a Catholic Wedding on the Amalfi Coast

  • Pre-Cana certificate
  • Baptism and Confirmation certificates
  • Pre-Nuptial Inquiry or Pre-Nuptial Investigation
  • Sworn Statement for American, Australian, and Canadian citizens
  • No Impediment for EU citizens
  • Photocopy of your passport

Civil Weddings on the Amalfi Coast

Civil ceremonies in Positano are held on the terrace of the City Hall overlooking the sea. In Amalfi, they are held inside a former Benedictine Convent dating from the 12th century. Couples getting married in Ravello can choose between Palazzo Tolla (the City Hall) and the Giardini della Principessa di Piemonte gardens.

Documents Required for a Civil Wedding on the Amalfi Coast

  • Wedding license from your city of residence
