We’ve unearthed everything you need to know about when, where and how to enjoy your wedding in Capri.
When’s the best time to enjoy a wedding in Capri?
You can enjoy a wedding in Capri all year round of course, but the best time of year to have a wedding in Capri is definitely between May and mid-September.
Whilst there’s no doubt that you can enjoy this beautiful island at any time, you might want to avoid the winter months to avoid any choppy waters sailing from either Naples or Sorrento.
We might be biased, but we think spring is definitely the most beautiful time of year to visit Capri. Not only is the light truly beautiful and it’s warm (but not too hot!) plus you have the beautiful scent of jasmine and orange blossoms infusing the air.
