THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DAY AT VERDURA RESORT
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the southern coast of Sicily, Verdura Resort is an outstanding location to make your wedding an extraordinary experience.
Set against the backdrop of the crystalline blue Mediterranean Sea, the landscape of the 230 acres park is filled with almond trees and perfumed citrus groves, creating the ideal setting for the special day.
A dream ceremony
Whether looking to have a ceremony on the private beach of the Resort, within the enchanting amphitheater surrounded by olive trees, on the sea-view terrace of the Liolà restaurant or on our striking green golf courses, Verdura can create the dream ceremony.
For a more traditional or religious celebration, our professional team at Verdura Resort will select the most romantic spots in the nearby town of Sciacca. Brides and grooms can select one of many picturesque churches located in the historic medieval centre, the Palace of the Jesuits dating back to 1613 or perhaps the Basilica of San Calogero on top of Mount Kronio, with breathtaking views.
The wedding reception
Designed in harmony with the surrounding landscape, the elegant interior spaces of the Resort are perfect for both intimate or larger receptions. The spaces include the Ballroom, with stunning views over the Sicilian hills that accommodates up to 240 people, the Liolà restaurant, with colours and textures of the Sicilian territory and a terrace overlooking the cliffs, has space for up to 90 people and restaurant Buon Giorno, accommodating 120 people, overlooks the infinity pool and out to the brilliantly blue sea. In the spring and summer time, as well as in warm autumn evenings, the outdoor spaces of the Resort can be transformed to host welcome drinks or the full wedding breakfast, looking out to the sunset over the sea or by soft candle light under the olive trees and star filled sky.
Attention to detail and unmistakably Italian flavors
Once the location for the ceremony is set, a team of professionals will take care of every single detail to reflect the different needs and style of each bride and groom.
Our master chefs will create a customized menu with recipes from the Italian as well as Sicilian tradition, enhanced by fresh local ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, citrus fruits, freshly caught fish and organic vegetables from the Resort’s garden. The best local and international wines, selected by the sommelier, will complete the experience.
Rocco Forte service
After the celebration, Verdura Resort will continue to pamper the newlyweds with a complimentary stay for their wedding night in one of the stunning suites overlooking the sea. They will also be treated to a relaxation experience at the Verdura Spa, a wellness temple of 4000 square meters where body and spirit can regenerate.
