Sicilian Wedding Day

About Us


Your big day. That's what it's all about for us.

Sicilian Wedding Day is a wedding planning company based on the beautiful island of Sicily.

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and one of the largest events most of us ever have to plan. Our aim is to take the stress out of your overseas planning by guiding you through it, step by step. We can help with the styling and creativity of your day, while also ensuring you get value-for-money by liaising with suppliers on your behalf and working within your set budget.

We don't do off-the-shelf solutions. We start by listening with great care to what you have to say so that when we produce a personalised, tailored proposition it will meet both your expectations and your budget.

Our co-founders are Sicilian and British which means we have the unique advantage of cultural and local knowledge and a love of both countries we can use to enhance the wedding planning process. Unlike many wedding planners we are also based in the area which means we can attend all appointments with suppliers face to face. Our location also guarantees our attendance on your wedding day to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Your wedding preparation starts here!
