Dreamy Destination Wedding in Sicily

Olive groves, views of Mount Etna, sunshine, and copious amounts of limoncello... That is what dreams are made of! Especially in times like these in the middle of a very dreary, winter's lockdown.

When I think of this destination wedding at Commenda Di San Calogero wedding venue in Sicily, it makes me beam from ear to ear. It could not have been more perfect. Heather (the lovely bride) had been a friend of mine for years back but we had fallen out of contact when she moved away to Bristol. I was so over the moon when Heather contacted me to say that she was engaged to be married and would love for me to be their photographer.

So I and one of my wonderful team members, Megan packed all of our equipment into hand luggage, booked our flights and hire a car, and started making the plans for Heather and Luke's wedding.

It was even more wonderful than we had expected. The grounds of Commenda Di San Calogero are idyllic. With 110 acres of land full of wild gardens, rustic terraces, and orange and olive groves, you will lever get tired of wandering around (I could have photographed there for weeks).

One of the best things about Commenda Di San Calogero (aside from the sunshine and breathtaking scenery) is how well it is run. Sadly something that doesn't always come hand in hand with destination weddings. The wedding was run flawlessly, with smooth transitions, helpful staff, and incredibly tasty, fresh food!

The venue also offers heaps of great onsite accommodation and is online 30 minutes from Catania Airport. Perfect!
