Giovanna Leonardi wedding planner in Sicily

I am so happy to tell you about a very sweet and young Australian couple’s wedding who decided to celebrate their elope in Sicily in charming island of Panarea. It was one of the sweetest weddings I have ever planned.

Kristie and David are very private people and very much in love people.
They wanted a simple and intimate elope in Sicily. We planned for them a ceremony on the island where their grandmother lived and got married! It was just the two of them and their parents.
A very sweet elope in Sicily: an intimate wedding in which the family played the main role and created a romantic atmosphere that involved not only me but also the tourists present on the island. They were fascinated by such an exciting ceremony with a truly breathtaking view in the background.

tell you about their elope in Sicily


My now husband and I live in Australia and we chose to elope in Sicily with our parents a few months ago. We were a little apprehensive about planning a wedding in another country with a person we have never met but Giovanna was so patient and supportive every step of the way.

She offered us choices for every decision and answered all the silly questions I had promptly and in detail. When we met Giovanna in Sicily, she helped us organise all of the legal documents and was so kind.

Our wedding day happened without a hitch! We loved everything!
The hotel Giovanna booked for us was incredible and the staff very hospitable. Our hair and make up artists were professional and did an amazing job.

Our wedding day on charming island of Panarea

The photographer and videographer did an outstanding job. We have looked at our photos and watched our wedding video countless times. The flowers were beautiful and our food delicious.

Giovanna organised for a boat to take us to the island of Stromboli and it was incredible. It was truly the best day of our lives. Giovanna created our vision so seamlessly. We couldn’t be happier. An unforgettable elope in Sicily. Thank you, Giovanna!
