This is the story of the destination wedding in Sicily, Italy from Tim and Anya. Yes, a wedding in Italy! That their wedding day would take place in Italy was clear from the beginning. The father of Anya is born in Licata, a beautiful Italian village in Sicily. Besides that Anya runs an Italian restaurant and a few foodtrucks together with her sister. So it was the only option to marry in Italian vibes! It was weekend wedding that took place around the holiday villa of the family, located at the coast with a wide view on the Mediterranean sea. The most important thing to Tim and Anya was the goal have a relaxed wedding and all guests would enjoy the Italian coast of Sicily as much as they always do when they are there. Goal reached, in my opinion!
On the first day fort he family and friends there was a welcome lunch on the beach followed by a relaxed afternoon on the beach and eating pizza in the old center of the village. The next day, where I let this story start, was the official wedding day. After the getting ready and first look, the ceremony took place on the courtyard of a 500 years old ancient castle in Licata. No, not an official wedding venue, but a unique place they find by themselves. After the wedding ceremony on the castle the parents had planned a surprise for the newly wed couple: a tour on a traditional Sicilian vehicle through the old city. On the end of the afternoon we did the wedding shoot during a stroll in the streets of the old centre of Licata. When we came back there was a wedding diner prepared on the roof of the holiday villa and after that it was time for a first dance, a big party and some fireworks. The third day was starting slowly after the big party. And because the awesome coast and beaches of Licata schould not be missed in this wedding story, we did a wedding shoot on the beach at sunset. And because all good things come to an end, the wedding was closed with a last diner on the roof and wishing balloons. Oh, and the wedding couple making a night swim of course.
