Amalfi Catholic Wedding
Catholic wedding ceremonies in Amalfi take place in the marvellous Duomo of St. Andrew the Apostle, whose remains are kept in the crypt. Its present fsçade, brilliant with mosaics, is in Oriental style; its bronze doors, the first ones to appear in Italy, were given to Amalfi by Pantaleone di Mauro Comite, a noble man from Amalfi, who melted them in the 11th century in Constantinople where he lived and led the Imperial Party. The duomo rises proudly at the end of steep steps that dominates that lively piazza where it is possible to admire a beautiful 18th century fountain.
Catholic weddings in Amalfi can be performed in this historical church. This is undoubtedly one of the most impressive churches of Italy. The interior is a 10th century Romanesque skeleton in an 18th century Baroque dress. The transept and choir are 13th century.
After the ceremony we highly recommend some wedding pictures in the Cloister of Paradise, a beautiful Arabian cloister set beside the Duomo of Amalfi.
Located very close to the heart of town, in a secluded area, this lovely chapel is annexed to a former medieval convent founded by St. Francis himself in 1222. This is a really enchanting building with a single nave, the ideal place for intimate, private ceremonies. The interior in the crypt it is possible to admire some valuable frescos from the 13th century. The panoramic spots of Amalfi are at short walking distance.
Catholic wedding ceremonies are conducted in English. Music available: organist, violinist and choir.
The best time to get married in the Amalfi Coast goes between April to the beginning of November. Very beautiful also on New Year's Eve.
