Tell us a little about yourselves!
We met 11 years ago at work, it was Tora’s last day and Paolo’s first. We said hi and a year went past until we met again. And it’s been us ever since. We spent 4 years together in Switzerland before moving to Sweden. We love to cook together, explore new cuisines, travel, enjoy live music, spend time with friends and family – and love to play games.
Why did you decide to get married where you did?
We wanted to get married in Sicily, as Paolo’s heritage is Sicilian. We were looking for a rustic and charming location to celebrate our wedding. After visiting a couple of different venues, we fell in love with Feudi del Pisciotto.
How many guests did you have?
What was your budget?
Tell us about your outfits.
Tora wanted to bring Sweden with her, and fell in love with this dress from Ida Sjöstedt over five years ago. With a few tweaks, it was just perfect for the day. Paolo wanted to have something from Scribano 1966 in Sicily, but it was important to keep it simple and stylish.
What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning your wedding?
To create an amazing environment where all our families and friends could get together and have a wonderful night with us.
Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?
Simplistic but yet elegant, with touches of a Sicilian and Swedish summer.
Any tips for couples getting married?
You can never start planning too soon, and make sure you splurge on the things that matter to you. It is a night to remember.
Are there any vendors that you would like to tell us a little more about?
We loved our photographer Valeria Pitarresi and videographer Serena Catanzaro.. They managed to capture the essence of the evening. When looking at the photos and videos, we feel like we are there. Feudi del Pisciotto was also magical. The staff was very attentive, caring and always available. Both the food and wine was amazing as well.
