Weddings and honeymoons are an essential stage in a couple's life: the destination chosen must be "dreamlike". The "burning land" of the Phlegraean Fields with all its great beauty is undoubtedly an exceptional proposal for both wedding and honeymoon: from Pozzuoli to Baia, passing through Bacoli, Cumae and Monte di Procida.
Campania offers places of enchanting beauty and, among other things, may be the best place to say your fateful 'yes'. Between Naples, the Sorrento peninsula and, in particular, the Campi Flegrei, there are areas of great natural, historical, cultural and artistic value. The Campi Flegrei are a succession of breathtaking places with enchanting panoramas of unparalleled charm, which is why many locations in this area are ideal for weddings and honeymoons. Given the variety of the area, the Campi Flegrei are also perfect for a heterogeneous, original and enchanting photoshoot.
Let's discover together which are the best Phlegrean locations to celebrate your wedding and give an answer to all the highlights of a wedding and honeymoon: the welcome event, the wedding shooting, the wedding banquet, the theme of the wedding in combination with the territory, the magical places for the honeymoon and some alternative ideas.
Welcoming in a dreaming destination
A wedding in Campi Flegrei is beauty and magic: the sun, the green of the hills, Monte Nuovo and the lakes, the blue of the sea are the ingredients of a unique setting. One of the most scenic spots is undoubtedly Capo Miseno. From the promontory, it is possible to enjoy a wide-ranging view of the Campi Flegrei: not only the lakes, the sea and the hills and mountains but also the islands of Procida, Capri, Ischia and Vesuvius. It is one of the few locations from which it is possible to see this incredible panorama.
Right in Bacoli and on the Miseno promontory, there is the exclusive Cala Moresca Resort. With its panoramic terraces and elegant interiors with large windows overlooking the enchanting panorama, it is undoubtedly one of the best choices for those who want to spend their honeymoon in the Campi Flegrei, entrusting the wedding to the expert hands of the resort's wedding managers.
Not far from Bacoli, in Monte di Procida, you will find the romantic and stylish Al Chiar di Luna Complex, with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Naples: in two glimpses, you can enjoy the view of the islands of Ischia and Procida and the Campi Flegrei. Al Chiar di Luna is ready to welcome you for both your wedding and honeymoon.
Wedding Shoots among the lakes of Campi Flegrei and the Casina Vanvitelliana
In an area like this, shooting can be done anywhere. In that strip of land that lies between two parts of the same sea, there is a casket of wonderful places and breathtaking natural stages. Lake Fusaro is a natural crossroads between Baia, Bacoli and Cuma and offers unique and unforgettable corners for your weddign shoots.
In addition to the shores of the Litorale Domitio with its countless beaches, kilometric stretches of sand and unique views, near the lake there is one of the most evocative and intriguing places in all of Campania: the Casina Vanvitelliana.
The work of the genius of Luigi Vanvitelli, the most famous Neapolitan architect of the nineteenth century, is a hunting lodge of the Bourbon family. A work of refined and articulated beauty. A sort of pagoda on three levels interspersed with large windows. Located in the middle of the lake, it can be reached via an arched jetty. This location is one of the most sought after to celebrate your wedding or just to photograph yourself in this place of particular historical and artistic value.
Lake Miseno is a lake in the municipality of Bacoli, between Monte di Procida and Capo Miseno. The lake is separated from the sea by a sandy barrier about 200 metres wide and is connected to it by two mouths. The lake owes its name to the trumpeter of the Roman army, Miseno. Legend has it that Misenus drowned in those waters, and Aeneas buried him under a large mound of earth. Even today the promontory near the lake is called Capo Miseno Promontory, in memory of this legend.
Also, for Lake Miseno, there are many connections with Roman times when the lake was divided into two parts: the lakeside was used as a shipyard, and the seaside was the port.
Lake Lucrino is a natural basin located in the Phlegraean Fields area, formed after the creation of an isthmus separating it from the sea. The name Lucrino comes from the Latin 'lucrum', gain, and is associated with the fact that the lake was home to oyster and fish farms as early as 90 BC. Lake Lucrino has undergone many changes during its long history and was the protagonist of many events in Roman times. In the area surrounding Lake Lucrino, many Roman villas belonging to illustrious nobles of the time were built. For this reason, a photo at Lake Lucrino, seemingly naturalistic, will be steeped in history and culture. The Campi Flegrei could be ideal for a wedding with an Ancient Rome theme.
There are many locations that stand out on Lake Averno that offer enchanting views to celebrate your wedding. Furthermore, near the lake, there is the cave of the Cumaean Sibyl, the place where the Greeks used to go when they had to make important decisions. A mystical place, with an esoteric charm, which can only embellish these places.
At sunset, Lake Averno becomes a stage of very suggestive colours and scents, recalling its past as a gateway to the Hereafter.
Wedding Shoots by the sea: the thermal baths of Baia and the Castle of Baia
Baia, a hamlet of Bacoli, is an important piece in the panorama of wedding locations in Campania. The small bay offers a schedule of incredible places of considerable beauty and historical interest.
Couples from all over Campania, and in recent years, from all over Europe, choose Baia for their weddings and shoots for its central position relative to the Campi Flegrei where the Castle of Baia is visible, perched on a promontory overlooking the sea, and the thermal baths of Baia a few steps from the sea.
