Wedding in Italy Sicily today means being able to choose the most enchanting scenes that nature has to offer, from rocky seascapes to gently rolling hills, from mountain ranges to local flavoursome produce.
Wonderful seascapes, rolling hills and dramatic mountains – and that’s before we get to the wedding banquet of fish, meat or whatever local delicacy takes your fancy.
One of the latest trends is to get married onboard a boat or on the beach, and for this Sicily has no competitors – just think of the Aeolian Islands and the Egadi.
Or get married in the enchanting scenery of Taormina, or the Valley of the Temples of Agrigento, surrounded by the scent of citrus fruits, with smells and flavours that will help fix your memory of the magical day.
For those who prefer a winter atmosphere, nothing can be more enchanting than a romantic and intimate wedding in a chalet on Etna – a unique landscape for your winter wedding in Sicily.
