Wedding on the Isle of Capri: Mediterranean Jet-set

The isle of Capri, in the gulf of Naples, is the most glamorous place of the Mediterranean Sea, attracting celebrities from all over the world and in every season of the year, from Hollywood actors to Arab sheiks, from royal families to the world’s most important politicians. Famous for its crystalline waters and the three majestic rock masses adorning its seafront, it is irresistible to admire while sipping a cool drink and people-watching in the “La Piazzetta”, the famous little square in the center of this tiny but dazzling jewel of an island. Many famous artists spend time on this Mediterranean paradise, and back in the days of ancient Rome emperors were the first to choose Capri for their summer holidays. Emperor Tiberius built twelve villas on the island and claimed as his personal nymphaeum the enchanting Blue Grotto, whose water is deep turquoise and objects immersed in it become ‘silvery’ in color. Capri is full of stupendous villas, making for a beautiful environment, and exclusive hotels carefully tend to the privacy of their guests who, on their fabulous yachts, sail leisurely around the island enjoying the splendid coastline. One of these villas or hotels, more or less luxurious as you desire and no doubt beautiful with incredible panoramas, would be not only the perfect place for your stay while in Capri could but also be an ideal location for your wedding reception – or even for your dream symbolic wedding, with a view of Faraglioni and of the emerald sea as your romantic backdrop. Your wedding in Capri will be the event of a lifetime, full of glamour, unique beauty and exceptional sea and landscape.

The municipalities of Capri and Anacapri (the two parts of the island) have allocated beautiful panoramic locations for both official civil weddings and symbolic wedding ceremonies. Each of the locations is beautiful in its own way and can be chosen depending on the number of guests and according to your wishes. Being such an exclusive and famous place, Capri, of course, is distinguished by high its prices, which is connected with the complex logistics of the island. In addition, the central part of Capri is completely pedestrian, so you would need to take into account that you would have to walk everywhere in a wedding dress, and your guests would also be on foot. For this reason, of the locations proposed by the mayor’s office, it is adviced to hold official civil ceremonies at the Gardens of Augustus, a small, beautiful park with breathtaking sea views which is located in the center of Capri, just a few minutes walk from the famous Piazzetta. The ceremony would be held on a lovely terrace and could be arranged to take place even after the park closes to tourists to guarantee privacy for the newlyweds. A banquet could then be arranged at one of the lovely hotels or restaurants of the island.

On the upper part of the island, Anacapri, traffic is allowed virtually everywhere, so there are more wedding locations available. In particular, those looking to hold a civil ceremony in a unique setting, might be interested in having their wedding in a small pine grove overlooking the sea! This is the perfect setting for a romantic boho chic wedding with a touch of nature!

For those planning a medium to large wedding in Capri with between 80-100 guests and more, if the budget allows, a celebration in a beautiful beach restaurant right by the sea wouldbe a glamorous choice. In the afternoon you would have use of a private beach and restaurant, and in the evening you would have a chic location for a private wedding and any kind of party. The ceremony could be held on the top terrace (where official civil ceremonies can be held because the location has an agreement with the Municipality), then the aperitif and dancing after dinner could be held poolside on the lower terrace, while the banquet would take place in the restaurant overlooking the sea on the middle terrace, where you and your guests would enjoy an unforgettable meal based on local seafood specialties typical to the island. Dancing is permitted until 2 am, after which fireworks can be ordered for a spectacular end to the most special day of your lives together!

If you wish to get married in a church or prefer a symbolic wedding, the choice of wedding locations in Capri becomes even more extensive. For example, you might choose to hold the ceremony on another private beach club located directly across Capri’s famous Faraglioni rock formations – imagine what incredible wedding photos would be taken in this fabulous frame! Moreover, if you are on a tight budget and wish to have a smaller wedding, thanks to our agreement with the owners it is possible to rent a portion of the beach club and to hold the ceremony even at the opening hours of the complex to save money while maintaining the breathtaking setting.

And if you prefer a bird’s eye view of the sea, then we would recommend holding your wedding at a magnificent historic villa museum located high up on the island, offering spectacular 360 degree views of the sea! The villa provides the opportunity to hold symbolic wedding ceremonies and a cocktail hour and/or a banquet both at opening hours and at the closing hours of the villa. Dancing is also possible there until one in the morning. For intimate ceremonies, the villa has a small square terrace where chairs can be placed for up to 20 people. In case of bad weather, the charming former chapel can be used for the ceremony or even to organize a dinner for a small group (up to 40 people). There is also a large panoramic terrace which is separate from the museum and therefore can be used privately at any time.
