If having a wedding abroad is your dream, then we are here to help you make that dream a reality. Italy is the perfect place for a destination wedding, and if it is romance, glamour and stunning sea views you are looking for, then you really cannot do much better than the beautiful town of Positano.
Positano is one of Italy’s most famous and revered riviera towns, perched on the side of the cliffs of the Amalfi coast, it is located just south of Naples, and is within easy reach of the larger towns of Sorrento and Salerno. Visitors can fly in and out of either Rome or Naples, with Naples less than an hour and a half’s drive from Positano.
With steep, winding streets that lace their way through the village and up the cliff-side, Positano is a place to get lost in; the town has been enchanting and entrancing visitors for centuries, and is the perfect setting for a wedding abroad.
The Poseidon Hotel is among the best hotels on the Amalfi coast, and reflects the charm and magic of Positano. This villa-style hotel, nestled on a hilltop overlooking the sea, has been run by the Aonzo family for more than 50 years, and their experience in the hospitality business is evident throughout, from the warm, attentive welcome to the simple, classic décor.
The hotel’s refined restaurant, Il Tridente, serves traditional Italian and Neapolitan cuisine in a divine setting. The dining room is pleasantly decorated with whitewashed walls and traditional furnishings, but it is the terrace that really stands out, with its stunning views of both the bay and the village, perched on the cliff-side.
The Poseidon Hotel’s bar can be found next to the charming outdoor swimming pool, both of which boast similarly spectacular views of both the ocean and the Lattari mountain range. This is the perfect spot to enjoy either a dip in the pool, a book on one of the sun loungers, or in the evening, a classic aperitivo - pre-dinner drink. The bar has a piano, at which many a maestro has played, and there are plenty of comfy chairs inside, should you get chilly as the sun sets.
The rooms come in a range of sizes, and there is a choice between sea, garden or village views, but all feature classical maiolica tin-glazed floor tiling, as well as other traditional designs. The suites are something really special, where guests are spoiled with a terrace, as well as separate living and sleeping areas.
Choosing to hold your wedding at the Poseidon Hotel in Positano means you are guaranteed a unique and unforgettable day, not least because we are here to help with all the arrangements and ensure that everything goes off without a hitch.
The excellent on-site restaurant provides the perfect venue for a formal wedding breakfast or a more casual affair. Whether you are simply looking to raise a glass of prosecco, champagne or limoncello with a few friends and family members, or indulge in an Italian feast with after-dinner drinks and cake-cutting on the terrace, the Poseidon Hotel is happy to be your host.
With one of the most picturesque villages in the world as the backdrop, you are sure to have a day to remember if you choose to hold your destination wedding in Positano. And with a number of special suites to choose from at the Poseidon Hotel, it is well worth making a holiday out of your wedding, ensuring you have all the time and space you need to primp and prepare before you say ‘I do’.
