Wedding Photographer: Positano: Mat & Pia

Amy was the wedding photographer at Positano Town Hall, Amalfi Coast for Mat & Pia’s wedding.

When Mat & Pia first contacted me, they planned to elope. To come to beautiful Positano on the Amalfi Coast from their home in Australia and get married – just the two of them. In fact, as their big day approached, their parents chose to join them and so it was that Pia & Mat got married with just their Mums and Dads there to witness. How special.

After a heartfelt ceremony at Positano Town Hall and a quick photo shoot at a look-out point high above Positano we headed off for the most amazing boat ride of all time. From Positano, we went around Li Galli islands, privately owned and just totally beautiful. As the sun went down over the water, the light was golden and the views across the sea where sensational. A trip that I will certainly never forget.

Once back on dry land, Positano came alive as tourists came down to the sea front to eat whilst we went up high to the luxurious boutique hotel, Le Sirenuse. Finally, I have photographed a Bride & Groom in a hotel featured in my Hip Hotels coffee-table book!

Mat & Pia got ready together at Hotel Marincanto. Their room had an indoor pool in it!! Here is a photograph of the hotel’s beautiful terrace.

The girl that did Pia’s make-up was a fellow Australian but living nearby to Positano in Salerno.

Mat did a grand job of getting Pia into her dress. Here’s Mum doing a few last minute tweaks.

Mat manages his own final tweaks!


A very personal, private ceremony on the terrace at Positano Town Hall.


The display of flowers at the ceremony was gorgeous.


Just married!


Mat & Pia wondered through Positano’s colourful streets, down to the sea-front for the boat ride.

Thanks to everyone involved: to Mat, Pia, Mums and Dads for making me feel so welcome and to Jacquie Coppola from The Amalfi Experience for being the only planner worth contacting if you’re getting married down there :-) – Amy x
