Karen & Brian

American couple Karen & Brian held their beautiful wedding blessing ceremony in the lush ‘English Garden’ of the stunning Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea by the sea in Taormina Mare. The groom and his groomsmen arrived at the venue on a colourful Sicilian fishing boat!

Karen chose white peonies for her bridal flowers. The lovely ‘English Garden’ with its hedges and lawns was even further adorned by a lush white floral ceremony archway.

Crystal vases of white peonies, roses and lisianthus with intermittent mini kumquat trees, tapering candelabras and tealights flowed all along the entire length of an amazing white and silver Imperial dinner table on the ‘Mazzaro Terrace’ in the upper garden and acrylic mirror script names marked each of the place settings.

The wedding came to a fabulous conclusion on the beach deck with a buffet of delicious cakes and Sicilian pastries and a floral explosion of archway and cascade surrounding their 5 tier wedding cake creating a magical setting for the live 10-piece dance band and open bar for the after party.
