Would anyone like to take a stab at what they think this surname could be? It's the surname of a bride married in Calatafimi, Trapani, Sicily.

Steve
The only surname that comes to mind, and that I know is prevalent in Sicily, and even found in Trapani Province, is Giarratano. I honestly can't say this is the correct surname though. I also see on the internet that there are those with the surname spelled as Giarrantano.
