Matrimonio a Procida
Your wedding in Procida tells a story unlike any other.
The small, picturesque island, also known as Arthur’s Island, is the ideal setting to celebrate the big day.
It is here that many couples decide to get married, attracted by the perfect combination of art, history, culture, culinary tradition and nature.
Procida offers all the elements for a fairytale wedding, it is an open-air film set, historic churches and abbeys, medieval palaces, seaside villages and enchanting, timeless panoramas and of course extraordinary, welcoming and evocative locations.
Discovering the island of Procida
Procida’s nomination as Capital of Culture 2022 gives due credit to the smallest island in Campania’s archipelago.
Visiting it, discovering it and appreciating its artistic and cultural heritage is an experience to be had at least once in a lifetime. Choosing it as the venue for your wedding is much more.
It means choosing a place that is still little known, chosen by lovers of beauty who at the same time dream of a place that is more private than the other two islands in the archipelago: Capri and Ischia.
2022 will therefore be the year of Procida. Capital of Culture, whose slogan: ‘Culture is not an island’ conveys all the determination and ambition of the inhabitants of the small island, who preserve their traditions but with an eye to the future and innovation.
The island will be in the spotlight more than ever in 2022, so organising your wedding here can only be a pleasant discovery.
Palaces and abbeys
Procida is also history and culture. Approaching by sea, you will be amazed by Marina Grande and Palazzo Montefusco (or Palazzo Merlato), a structure dating back to 1100, once the summer residence of the King.
And moving on to the highest point on the island, a visit to Terra Murata is a must.
From here you can admire the entire panorama offered by the Gulf of Naples.
Ancient medieval structures, the Palazzo d’Avalos, dating back to the mid-1500s, and the Abbey of San Michele are enchanting places ideal for your wedding film, to write a truly different story.
Churches for a wedding on Procida
Procida, in addition to its picturesque villages, panoramas and historic buildings, has no shortage of churches to choose from for a religious or civil wedding.
The church of Santa Margherita, is one of the main examples because of its location, raised above the sea.
It is an iconic place on the island of Procida, built in Baroque style during the 16th century. Today it is possible to hold a civil ceremony in this structure.
For the religious rite there are several other churches. San Leonardo, San Antonio Abate and the aforementioned San Michele Abbey.
Civil or religious wedding in Procida?
Getting married on Procida is the choice of couples who love to organise unconventional events, to be immortalised in a videography service shot among the colours, villages, panoramas and historic homes of Mediterranean architecture.
A place already admired and described by famous authors of the past: Juvenal, Virgil, Boccaccio, are just a few examples.
Although it is less well known today than Ischia and Capri, Procida's nomination as Capital of Culture 2022 gives new life to a romantic place, steeped in history and nature.
It is here that dreams of a religious or civil wedding become reality.
