Wedding Venues on Capri
Couples can celebrate a Catholic wedding in Capri and Anacapri only if either the bride or the groom is a resident in the Archdiocese of Sorrento, unless the Bishop issues a special dispensation. In Capri, there is a small German Evangelist church, for couples wishing to celebrate a Protestant wedding.
In the town of Capri, couples can get married in a civil service in City Hall in the Piazzetta or at a number of scenic venues in and near Capri town. The city hall ceremony is free of charge during office hours, but there is a small fee for ceremonies held in other scenic venues.
Civil ceremonies in Capri can be held at the following venues:
- Gardens of Augustus
- Tragara scenic overlook
- Punta Cannone scenic overlook
- Villa Lysis (Fersen)
- Charterhouse of San Giacomo (with authorization from the "Soprintendenza")
In the town of Anacapri, there are a number of breathtaking and scenic venues where civil ceremonies can be held, including:
- The Lighthouse
- La Migliera
- The Orrico and Mesola Forts
There is a fee for using one of these venues to hold your wedding ceremony, otherwise couples can choose to get married inside the City Hall.
Symbolic wedding ceremonies can be held anywhere; on Capri, couples often opt for the Gardens of Augustus, on the scenic overlook facing the dramatic Faraglioni.
