A Breathtaking Traditional Amalfi Coast Wedding

Breathtaking Amalfi Coast Wedding – Piera plus David Photographers Positano 8

If you’re a bride, groom or wedding pro hanging around Bridal Musings the chances are that you’re into romance, right? Well, if so, this breathtaking wedding on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast is about to pull at your heartstrings.

I hesitate to give too much away – the raw emotion from these stunning & cinematic photographs should convey all that is need to be said. But beyond the gorgeous captures (after all, when do we publish any wedding photos less than amazing?) it’s the stories included in this real wedding feature that really gets us a little teary.

With a touching and romantic love story and moving words from the bride’s sister (who also happens to be the photographer behind these incredible photos!) we’re lost dreaming somewhere along the Amalfi Coast.

Our Love Story

We met at my sister’s photo studio in Positano in the winter time. 
It was a very bad time for me and my family, because my dad was sick and things weren’t going very well.

Precisely in that specific difficult moment of my life, I met Giovanni, who managed to stay close to me with his sweetness and his protection for me. Many signs have been sent to me by my dad so that he would be the man of my life: he was born the same day as my dad, and he has the same love and passion for the sea that my father passed on to me as a child. It was him! Without any hesitation!

The Venue

We married at Atrani’s Church, on the Amalfi Coast. Atrani is the smallest town in all of Italy, with just 800 inhabitants and the Church its amazing – it truly is something special inside.

Words from the Bride’s Sister

“For people that know me, even if a little bit, I have to say I’m not so good in writing nor expressing my thoughts. But I just had to narrate in my own words this beautiful story of an unexpected, sweet wedding – my sister’s wedding!

It took everyone off guard – we all thought it was too early, especially after very hard times. But, what about the person she chose to spend the rest of her life with? Well, I think me, my mum and my dad couldn’t have asked for someone better. A big bearded man, that prepares the best ‘alici ‘mbuttunate’ (anchovies filled with mozzarella cheese) in the world, with his giant hands.”

“My sister’s request to accompany her at the altar took my breath away. My instant, first answer was ‘no’. It would have been my Father’s task to do it, I didn’t feel myself in his role. But fortunately, few days before the big ‘Yes’, I understood me and her are my father’s soul, and decided to do it. I’ve never run that much in my entire life as in those few moments to the altar. What were all the ceremonies I’ve made in the past years for? Nothing!
 It’s such a strong emotion that petrifies and, in my case, makes you run so fast.
 Future brides, I promise I’ll never make you recommendations about not running while going to the Church!

My sister’s wedding was sweet, romantic, colored by the September sea in the small Church of Atrani. We enjoyed a few days after in the green and blue town of Praiano.

To my Dad, and to the strength of my Mother.”

The Photography

We chose my sister’s photo studio Piera + David because, of course, she’s the best for me. She really knew how I was feeling that day, and all my emotions.
