Karen Cacopardo – your Wedding Planner
Since 2007 Karen has lived in Taormina with her husband Diego. They relocated to Diego’s birth town Taormina after Karen fell in love with not only Diego but also Sicily.
As your personal wedding planner/co-ordinator Karen will be available throughout your time in Sicily. She will guide you throughout the wedding planning process covering every aspect of your special day. She is a very approachable and understanding planner who will listen to your requirements and answer any questions you may have. Although Karen is based in Taormina she also spends a lot of time in the UK over the winter months and often meets up with our UK brides and grooms to get to know one another, share mood boards and go through weddings details and ideas.
Karen gained a 2-1 honours degree in Leisure and Recreation Management and worked for 15 years at a 4 star chain of hotels throughout the UK. During these years is where she first experienced Wedding and event planning, after many years working for someone else Karen decided to take the plunge and work for herself. “To see a wedding day evolve after months of planning gives me a huge amount of job satisfaction, I really do have the perfect job”.
