Before our wedding in Sicily, we got acquainted with a substantial amount of useful and useless information, one way or another associated with a visit to the island. All sources unanimously pointed out that the romantic and exciting place to celebrate our wedding – a small town on the shores of the Ionian Sea – Taormina. Taormina is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Sicily. Therefore, we decided that the first chapter of our married life, we must “write” in the city, which, according to the statement of Goethe, “opens to the visitor the most beautiful views in the world.”
The wedding ceremony, dinner and welcome cocktail reception have been held at the hotel Atahotel Capotaormina with stunning views over the Ionian Sea, where we got an amazing photoshoot.
On the second day of our celebration we visited amazing Gambino vineyards, which located on the eastern side of the Etna volcano, in the woods of the National Park and facing the sea of Taormina. At 800 meters above sea level, we had a vine tasting and photoshoot on sunny and airy terrace with a breathtaking panorama and dramatic and memorable view. We spent the third day of our photoshoot during a walk on the city, feeling the magical, mythical atmosphere around.
Wedding in Taormina
All of the above is enough to highlight that we have made the right chose to celebrate our wedding in Taormina. Moreover, we are more than happy to return and celebrate our anniversary there.
We would like to say the biggest thank you to our photographer, Girts Ragelis, for capturing our special days. His pictures are out of this world! We have had nothing but praise for Girts from all of our wedding guests, regarding his professionalism and outstanding work. Girts made everyone feel so comfortable during whole period. He has done an amazing job by creating stunning photos & photo album that will always leave us with such special memories of a fabulous day. And we will be pleased to recommend Girts Ragelis to all our friends & colleagues.
