Wild & unkempt, Sicily’s Mount Etna is a rugged Italian wonderland perfect for the laid-back elopement.
Photographed by Deborah Lo Castro & designed by Simona Parisi, this Sicilian wedding inspiration shows why we think free-spirited brides & grooms looking to elope in Italy should set their sights on Sicily’s Mount Etna. Casual & rugged – with plenty of stunning villas and venues – the Mount Etna region provides a more laid back atmosphere than the more traditional, manicured wedding destinations of Tuscany and Northern Italy.
The talented wedding vendor team based in Italy captured that relaxed, Sicilian vibe so beautifully. With a bride in modern, easy bridalwear & her gorgeous natural curls, we can imagine ourselves gliding aside vineyards of Sicilian grapes as we say I do aside the rustic & breathtaking Villa di Bella.
Speaking of vineyards, any couple who elopes within the natural beauty of this region will be spoiled with some of Italy’s best wine (spoken as a former wine saleswoman!) Many of the natural wine world’s greatest producers call the slopes of Mount Etna their home, making volcanic wine perfect for a firey romance.
Expert tip: after you’ve said your “I do’s” at the mountainside, take a boat to the tiny island of Pantelleria, one of Bridal Musings’ dream honeymoon destinations.
