A sumptuous and aristocratic location with a leafy secular garden. Magnificent rooms with beautiful damasks, golden decorations and impressive crystal chandeliers… Villa Chiaramonte Bordonaro makes us fall in love from the first sight.

A rich tablescape in the great garden. In this occasion we have chosen a damasked purple tablecloth that makes stand out the elegance of the golden cutlery, chargers and the chairs.

The beautiful white and black dishes and the stylish glassware, along with the floral decoration, with so much greenery, low and loose with just two kind of beautiful flowers and different crystal candle jars. This is the tablescape designed and realized by Yes I Do in Sicily with the collaboration of Motisi.

Morena Fanny Raimondo’s (More) amazing gown inspired by Donna Franca Florio, a famous Sicilian aristocrat whose beauty and personality inspired many artists, musicians, and poets during the Belle Époque. An elegant, sensitive and proud woman. Unica, the perfect made in Italy dress for our bride.

The make up and hairstyle in collaboration with Giulio Caccamo (Piero Caccamo Parrucchieri) emphasize the sweetness of our bride, by lighting her eyes and lips with the colors of the event. The updo, perfect for a romantic bride, is a mix of a loose fishtail braid with random twists for a relaxed appearance. We have finish the look by bringing out loose strands of hair to the face. A fragility that contrasts with the masculinity of our groom.

And the music… the music of the harp and the charming voice of Romina Copernico washes over us taking us to the 19th century, the great century of Palermo.

A century of great social, political, cultural and economic transformations. Positivism, Decadentism, Evolutionism and the Belle Époque. That’s all we can find in these shoots made by Chiara Quartararo (Chiara Quartararo Photography).
