This destination wedding in the famous Italian island of Capri is like a fairy tale come true – an all-white theme with accents of gold, the warm summer sun, breathtaking views of the sea, and the culinary prowess and hospitality that only Southern Italians know how to offer…
Today we want to take you through the behind the scenes of this incredible event, entirely planned and styled by us at Capri Moments, destination wedding planners in Capri, and photographed by international wedding photographer Gianluca Adovasio.
Sandy and Pablo got in touch with us on a winter day in January. We usually plan weddings with a 12-month lead time, but this occasion was set to be different right from the start! The task at hand was daunting, but incredibly exciting. This couple wanted a wedding that oozed sophistication and understated luxury with nods to their Italian and Mexican heritage. No mean feat when you have just a few months to plan it all, but with our knowledge of the territory and a passion for challenging briefs, we were able to gift them the experience of their dreams.
Sandy and Pablo had already had a chance to visit Capri during an earlier holiday. Of all of the places they visited, the one that truly touched their heart was Anacapri – the island’s second city, located on a breathtaking vantage point. We might be a bit biased, because as ‘anacapresi’ ourselves, we love our town and firmly believe it is the most beautiful part of this incredible island. Planning a wedding in Anacapri couldn’t have made us happier!
This couple’s celebrations started the day before the wedding – of their 100 guests, they picked 20 of their closest friends and family for an informal dinner in one of the island’s local restaurants – a true feast of traditional ‘partenopean’ cuisine!
After an entire 24 hour of preparations, setting up, installing and styling with our team, the magic begun…
The setting chosen by Sandy and Pablo for their outdoor ceremony was the terrace of the famous hotel and Capri wedding venue Capri Palace. With a roof-top overlooking the sea and the nearby island of Ischia, this spot offered our couple the most perfect private, unspoilt backdrop they desired.
