Catholic Wedding in Positano


This magnificent church is located in the very heart of Positano. To reach the church you must walk through a very romantic street covered with arches of bougainvilleas in bloom. Its location is unbeatable, only few minutes walk to the main beach.

The Collegiata of Santa Maria Assunta dates back to the 13th century. Formerly of a single nave with a prestigious floor decorated with bizanthyn mosaics. On the main altar you can admire the beautiful icon of the Black Virgin with child. The legend tells that this icon arrived to Positano from the sea. The floor of the church, 18th century, was probably created by the Neapolitan School of Chiajese, the same artists that worked on the Santa Chiara cloister in Naples.

Catholic weddings in Positano

The interior of this church is wonderful, in baroque style with delicate marble and golden décors. This church is full of light thanks to the bright pastel colour of the central nave. We recommend this church if you have a fairly large number of guests. The inside can host up to 120 guests.

Ceremony specials

Only Catholic weddings are allowed. The ceremony is celebrated in English. Talented organist and soprano are available. Floral arrangements are possible on the altar only. It is not permitted to decorate the pews.


The best time to get married in Positano goes between April to the beginning of November. Very beautiful also on New Year's Eve.
