The priest were very accommodating and the setting was breathe taking to say the least. The altar is 1200 years old and it felt incredible to be part of such a milestone in our lives. If you are looking for a destination wedding, Positano is your place.

an enchanting intimate church in the midst of a commercial touristy area that complements the beauty and perfection of the area and so very accessible

The Church is located between the village with it's postcard small streets and the beach packed with restaurants and little hotels.

It is a simple but quiet church and travelling from Sorrento, I met an old couple who wanted to see this church where they celebrated their daughter's wedding. How original and sweet!

I would recommend, if you travel from Sorrento, not to wait 2-3 hours in the queue for the bus (as there was a very long queue there) but to consider finding 7-8 other people at the end of the queue and pay 10 euros each to a small bus driver to take you to Positano. Not only your waiting time is reduced to 0 but your travelling time will be reduced by more than half. I had the inspiration/luck to come across such Italian drivers waiting with their mini buses near the train station and apparently you can book this even by 30min in advance.

I also learned that you should never consider travelling in rush hour to/from Sorrento/Positano/Amalfi. You should also consider taking a fast ferry from Positano to Capri and then Capri back to Sorrento. But always check in advance the departure times as apparently the Italian websites are never reliable.
