Wedding Proposal Taormina Ancient Theatre
Surprise Proposal engagement in Taormina
When I first heard from Loric that he wanted to hire a photographer to document their surprise wedding proposal in Taormina. I knew we would be perfect!
He was very enthusiastic and we talked at length about how best to organise their special evening!
It was a beautiful sunny evening and to say it was surprise is an understatement!
Antigona's enthusiasm was priceless!
I love helping people plan these proposals, because although it helps to have a plan, it's the moments that follow that make our work really exciting!
It is always very important for us to meet couples who appreciate photography and the moments captured as much as we do!
Loric and Antigona share an enthusiasm for life that is evident from the moment you meet them!
Loric contacted me a few weeks before proposing to Antigona, he had chosen Sicily and the beautiful bay of Taormina, at the Grand Hotel San Pietro, and asked for our help to secretly capture the moment.
We talked about the details and decided on the date, Loric wanted to propose at the Grand Hotel San Pietro in Taormina, where he and Antigona spent their first time in Sicily together.
In this hotel there is a special terrace overlooking the sea, a truly magical place where you can see the whole bay of Taormina and Isola Bella.
Loric and Antigona arrived at the hotel for their exclusive aperitif on the terrace, meanwhile my husband and I pretended to be two hotel guests and observed the situation from above.
Shortly before sunset, after the two guys had sat down at their private table, we approached, hiding among the vegetation, waiting for the magic moment.
Under the pretext of taking some nice pictures of Antigona, Loric got his girlfriend settled in the best spot and shortly afterwards knelt down.
Loric got down on one knee and I came out of my hiding place to capture the moment and the excitement and disbelief that was unfolding!
We took a few portraits after my presence had been revealed, as the last golden light illuminated the cliffs, before leaving them to enjoy their aperitif and romantic toast. It was such a beautiful evening! It was the sweetest moment and of course she said yes!
We love helping people plan these proposals, because although it helps to have a plan, it's the moments that follow that make our work really exciting!

What better way to propose marriage than to get lost in the breathtaking landscapes of Sicily ?
The island of Sicily is one of the most magical places in the world! Being engaged here in beautiful Sicily - (Taormina, Agrigento, the Valley of the Temples, Mount Etna, the scala dei Turchi, the salt pans of Trapani) - these magical places are on many people's wish list.
A unique volcanic landscape, the sound and colours of the Mediterranean sea, Unesco wonders and spectacular sunset views, recognised the world over, create an incredible backdrop for any engagement photo, and if they are taken as a surprise wedding proposal it's even better!
