Getting married in Capri
Weddings in Capri are truly unique. The island of Capri is a work of art made of shiny white houses, tiny squares, and narrow medieval alleyways full of flowers hanging from the balconies. Its incredible vistas, fragrant flowers, brilliant blue waters make it a perfect location for your dream wedding in Italy.
Capri Island has two important towns, Capri town and Anacapri. Thanks to its famous Piazzetta, and its first-class hotels, excellent restaurants and boutiques, Capri is more lively. Anacapri is more secluded, an excellent getaway for walks to the splendid villas Damecuta and San Michele.
Olivia & Julia Weddings strongly recommends a wedding in Capri if you wish to be captured by the splendour of one of the most incredible island of the world. An incredible selection of exclusive, stylish and sophisticated venues will make your wedding in Capri truly unforgettable.
