My name is Karen and I moved to Sicily in July 2007 with my future husband Diego. After deciding to get married we also made the huge decision to relocate to Sicily and start a new life.
On arrival we set out to transform our Villa into holiday apartments and to plan our dream wedding. We fell in love with the Auditorium in Castelmola and arranged for the local mayor to perform our civil wedding ceremony. We organised our wedding photo shoot at Madonna Della Rocca in Taormina and employed local caterers for our evening reception at The Lemon Tree www.thelemontree.eu We organised our wedding car, accommodation for all our guests, airport transfers and transportation to and from the venue, hairdresser, musicians, flowers, wedding favors, photographer and wedding video. We also organised a boat trip 2 days before our wedding for our family and friends, a hen party and stag night the night before the wedding and every other detail required for our special day. We spent our wedding night on a boat anchored in the Ionian Sea, very romantic!
Our wedding went ahead like a fairy tale, a truly magical day. We hadn’t missed anything and the day went by totally stress free. My husband even went jet skiing the morning of the wedding with his best men whilst I enjoyed a leisurely swim with family and friends at our luxury hotel. With our precise planning and organisational skills we were able to enjoy our day for what it was, the best day of our lives.
I come with a wealth of experience in the leisure and hospitality industry having worked for a large hotel chain in England for 15 years. My main role was Health Spa Manager incorporating duty management responsibilities for wedding receptions in a luxury hotel. After the success of our wedding and my previous experience we decided to branch out and let other couples experience the same magic as we did.
Diego with his local knowledge obtained from growing up in this beautiful place has contacts for almost everything, if you wish to go on a fishing trip, quad biking up mount Etna, paragliding at 1200 metres, have a traditional wet shave at the local barbers, go diving to the bottom of the Ionian sea – he can make this and much more happen!
Let us help you capture this special day and create long lasting memories that will stay with you forever.
