Say the word Sicily and you are instantly transported by the sounds of cicadas and the warmth of the sun. Italy’s most gorgeous island, ringed by turquoise waters and bathed in golden light all year long, Sicily provides a perfect backdrop for your wedding day. And with its unique blend of culture, history, landscape and melt in the mouth food, why not make it your honeymoon destination too?

We have hand-picked Dimora delle Balze as our favourite Sicily wedding location. Set in the south-east of the island in the (UNESCO protected) tiny village of Noto, Dimora delle Balze is like stepping into a bygone era. Built in 1884, yet restored just 10 years ago, the estate is a fusion of past and present. Authentic Rinascimento frescoes and Baroque architecture (think stone columns and ornate benches) blend seamlessly with modern elegance. Dimora delle Balze might channel rustic style, but it has all the mod-cons of the 21st century.

Weddings can be held almost anywhere on the domain, so the (cloudless, Sicilian) sky is the limit! Whether it’s for just a few friends and family in the intimate manor house, a mid-size group for aperitivos around the saltwater pool, or a larger group in one of the three courtyards, the friendly staff at Dimora delle Balze is always on-hand to accommodate. Well versed in the fine-tuning of luxury weddings in Sicily, special attention is given to even the smallest of details. Which means you can spend your time relaxing and enjoying your day, while we take care of the rest.
