Luxurious and extraordinary Capri has been visited over the centuries by intellectuals, artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauty. A mix of history, nature, life and culture gave birth to the myth of this Mediterranean island Capri, —which remains without equal—today.
It truly is the “island of dreams,” with its pleasant climate, seductive beauty, and many notable landmarks. A wedding on Capri offers the perfect combination of an unforgettable day for the bride and groom and also a dream destination for their guests.
Piazza Umberto I, the famous “Piazzetta” is the meeting point of the island, marked by its iconic white houses and winding streets with elegant shops. There are numerous sightseeing opportunities here: the Faraglioni, the monastery of St. James, The Belvedere Cannon, the Blue Grotto are just some pearls that make Capri wondrous. Prestigious hotels offer beautiful landscape and unparalleled hospitality.
The food is absolutely amazing—cuisine is indeed one of the most appealing aspects of a wedding held on Capri, where gastronomy is the queen of the house. In fact, there are countless international celebrities who have been bewitched by the exquisite dishes that can only be found on Capri, thanks to local, authentic flavors and aromas.
It was here that 150 guests and a young, sophisticated couple decided to share their wedding weekend with friends and family for an unforgettable “I do.” Events began with welcome drinks on the terrace of the CapriPalace. Then guests boarded a sailboat to coast along the magnificent cliffs of the island in the turquoise waters and a visit to the Blue Grotto. A quick lunch was organized at Il Faro and then it was off to enjoy salt-water baths and sun!
After sharing day one and two, the big day arrived. The groom and his gorgeous bride celebrated with friends and family in a magical ceremony at the famed Capri Palace Hotel. The couple said their vows on the terrace of the Capri Palace; around them, a breathtaking view, a perfect setting down to the last detail. After the ceremony, guests were shuttled to the wedding lunch at the famous Paolino.
The view and atmosphere were unique, as was the dinner at Il Riccio restaurant, overlooking the sea and the sunset, which always seems more beautiful around the Mediterranean.
Using nature as a guide, the event was decorated with a “pergola” of lemon trees. The floral arrangements were inspired by the island itself, with turquoise as the main color. The tables were adorned with glowing candles to give the event a romantic glow.
The great night came to an end with a well-deserved rest! The memories of four unforgettable days inspire a lifetime of dreams.
