5 reasons why you should get married in Positano

There are some places in the world you see in photographs and you can’t imagine the place is really that beautiful. There is one such town on the Amalfi Coast of Italy that inspires everyone who sees it. It’s called Positano. Nestled on the hillside of the Amalfi Coast, a gorgeous 31-mile stretch of the coastline in western Italy, Positano inspires artists and lovers and has for years. You may have even seen Positano on the big screen. In 2003 a movie was filmed here with Diane Lane, called Under the Tuscan Sun. In this movie, Diane Lane’s character meets a dashing young man who lives in Positano and he invites her to join him and his friends for a delicious limoncello and later, she even finds a kitten on the beach. You’ll have to watch the film to see the rest, but it showcases the beauty of Positano in amazing ways. This movie was based on a famous book by Frances Mayes, by the way, that’s also inspiring. Because Positano is such a dreamy, colorful and romantic place, it’s an absolute fantasy to get married here, or even to be photographed on your honeymoon. I love photographing Positano and have been many times. Being that I live in Paris, it’s a short flight to paradise! Here are five reasons (there are so many more) why getting married in Positano is a fantastic idea.
