Hi, I’m SJ! Welcome to my Wedding Photographers Taormina hub! I’m based in the UK and regularly travel to Sicily to photograph beautiful weddings and elopements.
Below, you’ll find Elizabeth & Chirs’ gorgeous, intimate wedding where they hired me to be their wedding photographers Taormina – click here to jump to their wedding or see the most recent wedding I’ve photographed in Taormina here:
Wedding Photographers Taormina
Where To Get Married?
I’ve photographed so many beautiful locations in and around Taormina – there are tons of places to get married and host your wedding reception.
By far my favourite is to get married amongst beautiful botanicals in La Villa Gardens, the main public gardens in Taormina. With breathtaking views of the ocean and Etna, it’s a really special place. One thing to note though, space can be limited so if you have a lot of guests another option might be more suited.
Many of our couples to get married in the gardens have chosen one of the many gorgeous restaurants and hotel to then host their reception – in fact some offer elopement couples have used their penthouse suites to host intimate receptions.
If you need a little more space, but still want to have your wedding outside (which is a great choice, the weather is amazing in Taormina!) then the beaches near Taormina are amazing, especially at Isola Bella. Both of these options have a lot of moving parts, and it’s useful to know someone who can arrange things locally. If you’re looking for a planner, see the next section.
If you’d prefer to have everything under one roof, check out Villa Sant’Andrea or it’s sister hotel the Grand Timeo – Villa Sant’Andrea allowing you to get married on their beautiful private beach and the Grand hosting amazing gardens.
Similar to the Grand Timeo, but in the heart of Taormina is the San Domenico – well worth a look!
Wedding Planners in Taormina?
Unless you’re familiar with the area, plannig your weddding in Taormina could be tricky! It’s definitely possible, especially if you’re not having many of the usual wedding items.
Hiring a local wedding planner though, can really help take the stress out of organisign the wedding, but it also means you get access to loads of local experience and knowledge.
If you’re looking for a planner to help take the stress for your wedding in Taormina, can I recommend my lovely friends Ami & Mariangela.
Elizabeth & Chris
As soon as I received Elizabeth’s email I knew these two would be so much fun to spend the day with. Both Chris and Elizabeth were so full of life and laughter that we were able to create the most amazing memories as we explored around the beautiful Taormina in Sicily. These two are such incredible human beings and it was such a joy to be there to celebrate the building of their beautiful family.
“After one email, I knew we had to book SJ, and she was so wonderful and have lived up to her reviews!
Honestly, with so many amazing reviews I started to wonder if they were actually real… but now I see, they totally were!
You have made us feel so relaxed and special. I feel like I need an app so I can wake up every day with your voice encouraging me, you make me feel like I could do anything.
She was SO friendly, kind, literally cheering us on, and set us both at ease.
I absolutely love our images. She didn’t miss a moment I wanted to be captured. SJ caught all the laughter, tears and beauty of Sicily at once. You read it all over, but your photographer really, really does matter personality-wise as well as style.
Our videographer commented that so many photographers say they ‘work in a hands-off and natural way’ but in reality, they don’t! … but you actually do! He said it was incredible to watch, he’d never seen anything like it!
If you want an English speaking photographer, whose style is candid, timeless, bright and airy, I would 100% book SJ! She’s that wonderful.
She provides wonderful talent, great customer service, quick communication, warmth and patience, even she teared up herself during our vows.
I received so many compliments on our photos but all the friends who attended our wedding also loved SJ!”
