Sorrento marriages up six percent, says city mayor

Sorrento (Naples), November 22 - The number of marriages celebrated in the southern city of Sorrento is on the rise and the vast majority involve English-speaking couples, local authorities said on Thursday. Some 537 weddings were celebrated in the city famous for its scented lemons and nearby Amalfi coast in the first 10 months of this year, up 6% over 2011. 85% of the couples came from Britian, 10% from Italy and the rest from Ireland, the United States and Australia. "The figures augur well for 2013 in terms of the whole economy linked to the wedding industry," said local councillor Federico Cuomo.
