Isabel and Gustav’s elopement was a dream come true as I had Amalfi Coast on my bucket list for very long! When Santa, from Italian Boutique weddings got in touch about a wedding in Positano at Hotel Marincanto I was over the moon. Amalfi Coast / Costiera Amalfitana is one of Italy’s most memorable destinations. Turquoise seas and cinematic piazzas aside, the region is home to some of Italy’s finest hotels and restaurants. It’s also one of the country’s top spots for hiking, with well-marked trails providing the chance to escape the star-struck coastal crowds.
Various places around Amalfi coast have been used as movie sets for Hollywood Movies as well as ones made by Italian film makers. These Amalfi Coast & Naples movies feature the Hollywoods golden age on summertime capers and romances. It’s also the location for some famous scenes from Only You, Under the Tuscan Sun, A Good Woman and Julia Roberts love affair with pizza in Naples in Eat, Pray, Love.
Positano is a jet-set place with a pastel-coloured cascade of chic boutiques, spritz-sipping pin-ups and sun-kissed sunbathers which feels movie like. One of the biggest reasons for their decision to book Hotel Marincanto in Positano for their intimate wedding is that they were imagining tying the knot in a beautiful place where we can focus on them and their love for on another. They wanted it to be intimate and beautiful and a memory to cherish for a lifetime. Another great reason is that South of Italy in September still feels like summer and it is pleasant to embrace the beauty of Italian dolce vita.
