Sicily : fascinating destination to “tie the knot”

Sicily magical wedding destination

Seems like Sicily is perfect to tie the knot.
I  love to use the expression “to tie the knot” because remembers me an interlacing.

Kiss me and you will see how important I’m !

What’s a Knot? It is a fastening made by tying a piece of string and symbolize unbreakable pledges.
You know what? In the celtic tradition the ancient knots are universal and represent the continuous cycle of existence found throughout the world.
The Infinity knot has no beginning and no end , symbolising Eternal Love.

To be brief , for me , the knot is merely a symbolic way to show a lasting unit between 2 people .

Where there is love there is life!

Because of this ,  I wrote that the article interested everybody .
In other words, from simple declarations of love, to grand, glamorous affairs of the heart, it’s always a question of tying a knot.
Whether it’s a   “Yes ,I do  ” or a  “Pop the question”  or “Renewing  the vote” or a “Honeymoon in  a Paradise”, I think Sicily is the “love” destination.

I will not talk in this article about the potential of a wedding destination as lucrative market segment .
I will not talk  about numbers of couples each year choose a destination.
Do you want just an idea? From UK 55 thousand couples choose to tie the knot abroad… wow…

I want to talk only about my Sicily and the reasons why to choose it.

You will tell me : “The world is full of options and it’s a dilemma how to choose the perfect spot” . Why Sicily?

I personally think that  the destination  selected  is one of the most important pieces of a wedding , honeymoon or promise puzzle

First of all : what makes a great wedding day? Is it great food, landscapes, music , guests ? Yes, yes, and yes . But there is something much more important to make an event  memorable. It’s the location. . and Sicily holds so much more.
It’s  glamorous, casual yet high end, and exclusive, so if you plan to have a special wedding or to do a proposal, you need look no further.

See, feel and taste the love spell that Sicily casts upon lovers.

Especially relevant is the fact that foodies will love the assortment of fresh local ingredients ,  vino and  class fare.
Moreover ,Sicilian cuisine makes the design of a memorable menu for your reception,  as  a breeze,

Sicily cuisine and culture to spare , combined with epic views , and it’s easy to see Sicily like a glamourous , romantic  destination .

Above all, don’t forget that Sicily is not only a  special love’s destination but also a photographers dream wedding shoot destination .

Specifically, can I  talk about the “day-after” in Sicily? .. I speak  in a photographic sense clearly.
The best photographers agree and encourage couples  to schedule a  “day-after ” shoot . The name to identify this new fashion is “Trash the dress”.
Because, even when  you are on a “timeless” island like Sicily, the wedding day can sometimes feel rushed. On the contrary, a day- after  shoot is a great way to create memories.
With this in mind , we must no forget  that, you have the time to take some off-site  pictures around town.

Sicily is a charming kingdom place to enjoy and make memories that will last a lifetime.

It’s the perfect island escape to set the mood for romance on a honeymoon or to pop the question!

“It takes just a moment to feel enveloped by a new and ancient feeling, enveloping and narcotizing at the same time. In particular, that moment when you put your foot on this island. And immediately, you understand that this land, this landscape, this light, belong to you. They are part of your DNA, of your roots, of your soul, of something that you feel yours (Claudia cardinale).

Therefore i can assure you that Sicily is part of my DNA!

About the Author:

I’m Angela and I was born and bred some years in Novara ( Piemonte). Then my parents decided to get back to Sicily and I grew up on a small mountain village in the Madonie park : Polizzi Generosa . Nothing incredibly exciting happened there and for this reason I decided to move in an other city where I live happily: Cefalù . A beautiful medieval town, included in the World Heritage List in 2015 I was a smart girl in school and I loved to learn . I like music and books , animals , dance and most of all to know people and get in touch with the real soul of a place. I also love photography , gelato and writing . And naturally I like to travel and everything it’s in between.
