We got married in Positano last July and decided to have our wedding reception in the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori, Sorrento.
As I did not hire a wedding planner, I found the help that I got from the hotel general manager, Giovanni, extremely helpful. He assisted me with every little detail along the way. The staff are very friendly and accomodating, especially Carla on reception, Massimo the accomodation manager and of course Giovanni.
The hotel are very experienced in catering for weddings and my day went beautifully.
The wedding meal was absolutely delicious. We had a choice of salmon, lamb or veal for mains. All my 44 guests raved on about how delicious everything was. The bridal party arrived at the hotel a few days before the wedding so we had time to sample the wines and choose our favourites for the day.The service on the day was impeccable.
We had some photos taken down on the private getty. In hindsight I would perhaps have asked for the railing along the getty to be decorated etc. It doesn't do the photo justice.
Our bedroom overlooked the pool and had a large terrace upon which we could sunbathe. This was ideal but we had to use our powers of persuasion to get this room! On the morning of the wedding my hairdresser and beautician came to my room. These ladies were recommended by the hotel, and I can see why, they were brilliant. Expensive compared to prices back in Ireland, but normal for Italy and definitely worth it!
All in all, we had a fantastic day and our guests were very impressed, especially with the breathtaking views from the hotel. My mother really enjoyed eating her breakfast while gazing out at Mt. Vesuvius every morning.
I can't wait to return to the Ambasciatori. It was a most memorable experience.
