Imagine saying “I do” in one of the most romantic places in the world! Lucie and Marcus decided there was no better place for their destination wedding than Sicily, and with a classic modern look and relaxed vibe, it couldn’t have turned out better. Sparkly gold bridesmaid dresses, a beautiful indoor ceremony and a vintage getaway car have us on the edge of our seats excited to share it all with you.

From the bride: Whilst we wanted a small celebration, with quite a relaxed vibe, it was important to us that the ceremony felt formal – quite classic! We hope we struck a balance between meaningful and modern. We knew it had to be abroad (Sicily seemed the obvious choice since we were engaged there!), we knew it had to be small and we knew it had to be relaxed. Having said that, it was really important to us that the ceremony felt like the main event – we wanted it to be clear that we were not taking our promises lightly!
There were three possible ceremony rooms in the nearest town. Ours was on the top floor of Palazzo Nicolaci. We felt it had the perfect balance of feeling quite formal (with its amazing frescos) but with the joy of the Sicilian sunshine and the views over Noto baroque town. We were so sure about our choice that we booked them then and there (on our engagement trip) and didn’t go back to Sicily until our wedding week. Sometimes you just know!
One of the things we loved about Italian civil weddings was the formality of the promises that you have to make. One of these relates specifically to bringing up children. By chance, we had found out that we were expecting a couple of weeks before our wedding. Promising to each other to bring up our children “each according to their abilities” felt particularly special. Other than that, we were just very touched that our friends and family took the time to come out to Sicily. We had booked the whole hotel for three nights for all 40 guests to stay. The fact that so many did, and even made a holiday of it meant the world!
