Summer Wedding – Catania e Taormina

23 March 2018 Wedding

Summer Wedding – Summer is coming, but we still have time to give you some suggestions for your summer wedding in style! Forget about the old way and just let your imagination run wild: summer gives more freedom to the bride and groom, with ideas that are usually difficult to do indoors. Wedding party and dinner with candlelight and flowers and lanterns hanging here and there are the ingredients of a truly summer, romantic wedding. A wedding party around the pool is just perfect for a super casual summer wedding and will make your guests very happy! They won’t be obliged to wear suit and tie all the time. A DJ set and the open bar will give that special touch to your wedding party and will make your Big Day unforgettable. But don’t forget your swimsuit! For the fashion victim that can’t ignore the latest trends on their wedding day, therefore your favourite theme will be the bright colours of wonderful flowers, geometric shapes and tropical prints that will change your wedding location into a real riot of joy, in order to party all night long! Sicily is the perfect place for your summer wedding, thanks to amazing locations along the seaside and spectacular dream towns, such as  Taormina and Aci Castello.

In 1885, Guy de Maupassant wrote: “Taormina is a landscape, but you will find everything in this landscape, everything that was created to seduce eye, mind and fantasy”. Taormina has seduced many other great writers, such as Goethe and DH Lawrence. Taormina can claim many luxury hotels: Grand Hotel Timeo, Villa Sant’Andrea Hotel and San Domenico Palace Hotel, where Wedding is their crown jewel. In the town of Acicastello, with its precious past and among its rolling hills, lies a magic place like the Casa delle Terre Forti, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, where Odysseus and his friends fought the Cyclops Polyphemus.


Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo in Taormina is a magnificent location, a corner of true paradise between the sea and the active vulcano Etna. The silent witness of dream weddings, an exclusive location, where you can get the best of Sicily, relaxing between blooming gardens and amazing terraces. It was the first hotel that was built in Taormina and its location is unbeatable, in front of the Greek Theater and with a breathtaking view of the volcano Etna and overlooking the seaside. It’s the perfect location for romantic ceremonies and great wedding parties.


Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea and its gorgeous beach are located in the most beautiful locations in Italy, on the Mazzaro Bay. The luxury hotel is surrounded by blooming gardens overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It was built in the 19° century and it’s a magic place, where celebrating a romantic wedding ceremony on the beach and dancing all night long under the blue Sicilian sky, will make your summer wedding an unforgettable event!


San Domenico Palace Hotel was an antique Dominican monastery that was transformed into a luxury hotel, with a spectacular view overlooking the Bay of Taormina and Mount Etna. Many writers, artists visited Taormina, such a unique place! A wonderful place for a gorgeous summer wedding, surronded by the lemon trees or  dancing in the Mirrors Hall.
