Have you imagined an exotic wedding ceremony held in Sicilia? We made that, with the help of the hotel owner and all the staff there.
We spent three nights there from May28 to May 30, and wanna hold a wedding ceremoney in the nearby church. A big suprise, of course, relates to our wedding ceremony. This B&B is located right beside a church. We didn't know it was so close when we inquired about if it was applicable to hold a wedding ceremony in a church for a non-Sicilian and non-religious couple (Of course the answer was "Yes"). Our initial intention was to find a holy place to make vows. So we only expected two of us and the priest on our simple ceremony. This simple wish turned out to be warmly fulfilled, with the hospitality of the Silicians and other international friends.
Secretly, the B&B owner, Mr Giuseppe and the staff there sent out invitations to both the other hotel guests and the neighbors, with one of our wedding photos they found in flickr printed on the invitation cards. Surpisedly, many of the invited guests and the locals attended our ceremony, like our family. The ceremony lasted about one hour and a half, totally out of our expectation (we thought a vow might take only ten minutes at large), and all of them stayed there until a small ceremony-after champange party--the champange was also a special offer by the B&B owner. How generous of him!
The lovely B&B receptionist Roberta recorded the whole process for us as a helper. Without her assistance, we would not own such a merry memory. There are so many other people we could not name out to thank to. There are four other helpers of the priest and we heartily appreciate all of their blessings. We are also grateful about everyone's being there, the B&B staff, the other room guests including one couple from London and another couple we didn't where they came from. And we also couldn't forget the three chief witness of our wedding, the BB owner-Mr Giuseppe, Mr and Mrs Pivi During the whole process Mr Pivi was ebulliently helping here and there, taking photos, maintaining, arranging, etc. We knew Mr and Mrs Pivi are about to start a big journey driving across China by a van. We hope everything good with their following journey and hope they could contact us when they arrive at Beijing. And the hospitable neighbors, who could not speak English at all, but were happy to witness and share our happiness. We wouldn't forget anyone, including Roberta's mother, who was late for the ceremony and the group photo. She drove all the way but missed the ceremony. However, we knew from deep heart her best wish for us and her kindheartedness. The handsome who served our three breakfasts, the lovelies who helped clean our room, the two-babygirls' mother who translated for us when we vowed, and the mysterious beer on our table that night after the ceremony who must be prepared by Roberta.
Everything was so wonderful at thisB&B. Yes I haven't metioned the room. All I say is the romm is JUST PERFECT. Please check the photos I took during the stay. Photos of reality will tell you everything.
We hope to come back on our anniversaries. And we hope to do something for Ortigia as long as we can.
