Monica & Stephen
LA FONTELINA, CAPRI
A WEDDING-WELCOME LUNCH
at La Fontelina
If you have been dreaming of Capri as your wedding destination then you will simply go head over heels with this wedding welcome lunch at La Fontelina Capri.
Every globetrotter's dream is to bask in the sun, sip on their chilled sling, and take a dive beneath Capri's iconic Faraglioni, the three massive rocks that rise like giants out of the sea just a few meters off the island's Southern Coast, that had even Roman emperors Tiberius and Augustus fall in love, enough to establish their palatial villas and water cisterns over the cliffs.
La Fontelina has set a benchmark among the traveling elite. Having hosted international escapists -Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Clark Gable and numerous other stars of the big screen among them- it was the perfect place for our jet-setter couple, Monica and Stephen, to throw a magnificent welcome lunch for their wedding guests. On a terrace, perched over rocky pools, the future bride and groom's happiness was toasted in spirits beyond those created by the azure vistas and spaghetti con le vongole. As iced Sangrias arrived we were serenaded to an al fresco lunch by an amazing local Neapolitan band, taking advantage of the freedom so possible in this land to create and reinvent the art of living.
We then set off on our couple's pre-wedding shoot on board a classic schooner from Capri towards the Faraglioni legendary trio Stella, di Mezzo and Scopolo. We shot some truly wonderful pre-wedding aerials, while the two gorgeous to-be-weds lounged hemmed in by the rocky crescents. It wasn't long before anchored and everybody jumped in the blue waters. We love shooting lifestyle pre-wedding sessions in Capri and if out-of-this-world has a name, Monica & Stephen's is certainly it!
