The perfect “I do”
Imagine celebrating the most important day of your life with the Greek Theatre and Mount Etna as your honoured guests. Picture a vibrant, Sicilian-style party, or an intimate ceremony, surrounded by loved ones; family and friends all gathered together in a luxurious setting reserved exclusively for you.
At Grand Hotel Timeo you will find all this and more. We can help organise your perfect ceremony, followed by a sumptuous banquet or cocktail party.

Bride & Groom Pampering
Bride and bridesmaids can be pampered and prepare for the big day at our beautiful Wellness Centre. Body and facial treatments soothe away any pre-wedding nerves so that you arrive at your ceremony totally relaxed.
We also offer wellness packages designed especially for the bride and groom, which include manicure, make-up and hair styling for her, and massage, haircut and facial for him.
Visit our Spa section for more information.

Flowers & Decorations
Our wedding experts can help you select the perfect flowers for the bride’s bouquet and adorn your wedding venue and reception tables with a special Sicilian touch.
Equally important are the decorations: our team of specialists is on hand with inspiring ideas on how to personalise your venue with candles, balloons and special effects.

To capture the highlights of your day, we can organise a professional photographer or video specialist. From the bride's preparations to the ceremony itself, from the "I do" to the cutting of the cake, they will record every important moment.

Party Ideas
Greek Celebration
Celebrate your wedding in the style of ancient Greece. Choose a ceremony on our Terrace, adjacent to the Greek Theatre. Follow this with a spectacular banquet in classic style on our expansive Afrodite Terrace, with burning braziers and decorations creating an atmosphere inspired by Greek and Roman myths.

A Novel Wedding
Indulge in the splendour of Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s best-selling novel, The Leopard, as depicted in Luchino Visconti’s 1963 film. Enjoy an opulent feast laid out on a long table, sumptuously decorated with silver candelabras and other touches of Sicilian baroque.

Sicilian Wedding
A wedding feast in real Sicilian style will ensure a truly special and memorable day for you and for your guests. Painted carts, waiters wearing a "coppola" cap, lively Sicilian music to gladden up the atmosphere and, why not, a typical puppet show to entertain both children and adults.

Weddings in Italy
Civil ceremonies: Civil ceremonies may be celebrated in City Halls throughout Italy, at Town Halls, palaces, villas or gardens.

Religious Ceremonies
: Foreign citizens can get married in Italy according to Catholic rites in a Catholic church. You will need to obtain the Nihil Obstat from your local diocese, signed by your bishop, in order to be married in an Italian parish. We can also organise a celebrant for Protestant, Jewish or Orthodox rites in a sacred location, hotel, villa or garden.

Symbolic Wedding
: A blessing or symbolic ceremony can be held in any location.
