The Sicilian
An Italian Wedding
“you can’t refuse”.

Corleone in Sicily was too commercially developed in the early 1970’s for an authentic filming of the Godfather  movie. So the towns of Savoca and Forza d’Agro were used instead. Both towns retain the spirit of old Sicily combined now with a tour de force brought about by worldwide recognition.

In Savoca is the tiny wedding church where Michael and Apollonia were married in the film. Follow their footsteps in the procession through the village to the Bar Vitelli. Inside the Bar Vitelli you will find the original 1930’s machine which was a sink, a fridge and a Granita machine combined.

Afterward retire to the fully restored suburb of San Rocca, where a stylish resort has been created from the old village stone houses. The exterior of the buildings rendered in traditional local stone, but the interiors reflect the best of contemporary Italian style, with the now expected high tech conveniences. The Borgo has its own fine dining restaurant in house to celebrate an elaborate dinner for a small wedding party or a romantic dinner for two.

Wedding Sicilian Family Style

Imagine a farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills and a glimpse of the Ionian Sea. Idyllic vistas in all directions.

Even a traditional Sicilian Carrettu to carry the bride.

Then imagine the scent of lemon and orange blossoms carried on a gentle breeze at sunset.

This is the Nero d’Avola wine producing area of Sicily, near to the ancient towns of Ragusa, Noto and Piazza Armerina, where you’ll find many romantic estates and vineyards.

Accommodate family and friends in rustic rooms surrounding an ancient courtyard or luxurious contemporary rooms.

Now put yourselves in the picture and you have the perfect Sicilian wedding!
