Romantic Renaissance: Marianna + Andrea’s Wedding in Italy

There are few places more stunning than the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Marianna and Andrea, both avid photographers, chose a picturesque little town called Erchie to be the setting for their spectacular wedding. The quaint town’s roots run deep, it has ancient origins that can be traced back to Hercules, who stopped at village at the foot of the Mount Falerzio. It now has about one hundred residents.

The shots of the couple on the beach are so romantic, they look like screen stills from a film. The beautiful wedding was captured by Gaetano Clemente Photography.

With about 100 residents the town is composed of small white houses perched on the hill and narrow, winding alleys that lead down to the pebble beach and crystal-clear sea. The scent of the lemon trees on terraces lingers in the air, carried by a fresh sea breeze.

From the bride: “We chose the coast for its unique beauty and because it’s a place we love and frequently visit. We wanted the focus to be on the singular beauty of the sea and the quiet village on the shore. Also, the food is quite good!”

Marianna and Andrea were married in the Renaissance style church, Santa Maria Assunta. The beautiful church was built on the ruins of the powerful Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria de Irchi. Talk about getting married in culture!

On the eastern side of the beautiful pebble beach, there is the imposing quadrangular bastion of medieval origin (seen here in the background). It was built by Charles I of Anjou in 1278 and still stands today – it makes for a gorgeous and historic background to this beautiful wedding photo.

The wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. The couple said their vows on a sunny day and celebrated as the sun set over the incredible Amalfi Coast.

The reception was then held at Torre la Cerniola, where Marianna and Andrea celebrated with loved ones and friends, dancing the night away.
