Dear Tina, Alberto & Luisella

I hardly know where to begin!  A huge heart felt thank you from both of us for organising the most breathtaking day, it surpassed all our hopes and dreams.

To be honest we didn’t know what to expect on our first meeting last September, but after a very extensive tour of all the possible reception and ceremony sites we felt that we had definitely made the right choice, both with you as wedding planners and also Venice.

From that point on everything just fell into place, anything that we wanted was made possible by Tina and her wonderful emails, I shall be sorry not to get my weekly update!  We would have been completely lost with all the religious documentation if it were not for Wedding Italy’s step by step guides of what was required.

The day itself was incredible, the church of the Redentore was magnificent in the Venetian sunshine but nothing compared to the warmth given to us by Father Gianluigi Pasquale who took the service, we will remember his kindness for the rest of our lives.  It was amazing to arrive at the church by boat, my bridesmaids, my mother and I shared a very special journey together after a long morning getting ready.

Our photographer, Angelo Feletto was extremely professional and has produced photographs of an immeasurable quality, we will treasure the images forever.  Everyone who has seen the photographs has been amazed, they really are “Hello” magazine quality.

The Metropole was the perfect setting for the reception.  The quality of the food is second to none, the staff can not do enough to help and the interior decoration is exquisite!  We were slightly concerned just how good it would be as it was slightly over our budget, but we needn’t have worried.  All our guests felt like they had experienced a once in a lifetime event.

Many thanks to Luiselle who managed to get the Town Hall to stay open for us as our flight was late, this would definitely not happen in the UK!

Tina, you have been just fantastic!  Nothing has been too much trouble and you made it all happen, even my Sex and the City inspired bouquet, thankfully Mr Big went through with it!

Alberto, your professionalism from the beginning gave us the confidence that Wedding Italy was the best company to trust with the most important day or our lives, thank you.

All our best wishes for a very happy and successful future
Alison & John  xx

Hi Sonia,
 
Our wedding experience was truly amazing!  Portovenere was the perfect site for wedding.  The town itself is so charming, and the views are spectacular!  I am really looking forward to seeing our wedding photos.  The weather was absolutely perfect, and you could see for miles across the bay to the mountains above Lerici.  The photographer commented to us that the weather was perfect for photography that day.  He was seeing colors and details that are only experienced a very few days of the year.  Because the town is so small, we really felt that we were able to spend quality time with our guests.  All of our guests enjoyed themselves tremendously, and were glad we chose Portovenere for the wedding.  Many of our guests had been to Italy before, but none had actually been to Portovenere and absolutely fell in love with the area.  We literally could not walk outside our door without running into someone we knew!  I know it sounds cliché, but the whole experience was an absolute fairy tale.
 
Our interpreter, Loredana, was fantastic.  She made sure that every single detail was addressed, and the ceremony and reception went very smoothly.  She was extremely helpful with processing our paper work at the town hall.  We had one minor hiccup with the reception, but Loredana was able to present a compromise which worked out particularly well.  I can say the same positive things about our contact in Milan.  The young lady’s name escapes me right now…  But she was punctual, and made sure everything was taken care of correctly at the Consulate.  We were able to fit in the viewing of The Last Supper while she got the necessary approvals on our paperwork after we left the Consulate.  And we made our train out of Milan to La Spezia right on time. 
 
The wedding dinner, at the Grand Hotel, was exceptional.  The food was extraordinary!  We began the reception at 7:00 pm, and did not finish eating until almost midnight!  Every dish was outstanding, and the service was top notch.  We had a minor misunderstanding at check out time the next day, regarding payment for the dinner, but you were able to clear up the issue with the hotel right away and we were able to continue the rest of our trip without any worries.
 
Castello Doria, where the ceremony took place, was quite impressive.  It is the most romantic and picturesque site for an outdoor wedding.  By the way, I think someone counted and there are over 300+ steps up to the castle.  All the ladies wore comfort shoes to the top (even me in my dress!), and changed into dress shoes at the top.  It is a bit of a hike, but even our 85 year old Aunt was able to make the trek.  In fact, she was the first one up to the top.  Once you are at the top, however, you are in for a real treat!  Everywhere you turn, you are rewarded with views worthy of postcard snapshots.  We are glad we decided to have the Italian civil ceremony instead of just a symbolic ceremony.   The Italian service is different than an American ceremony.  It made our wedding that much more unique.  After the ceremony, our guests were able to linger at the castle to enjoy the views and a little prosecco purchased from one of the local wine shops.
 
The flowers, hair, and makeup also turned out perfect to my specifications.  The hair stylist, Alessandra, from La Spezia was excellent!  I showed her a photo of a hairstyle, and she recreated exactly what I wanted.  She also did a great job with my makeup.  I definitely recommend her services with very high regard.
 
I know there are many details that I am forgetting….  We really had no major conflicts with the planning process.  Everything was set and ready to go for us.  The most difficult part of planning is putting your trust into someone else’s capable hands.  The whole experience exceeded our expectations by more than words can convey (a million times!).  We absolutely could not have created this amazing event without your expertise.  We truly are still floating on cloud nine, and feel that we have had the most special wedding in the world.  Our guests keep thanking us for choosing Portovenere.  What a gem!  We definitely plan to return and spend more time in this area.
 
We are really looking forward to seeing the photos.  It had been raining in the mornings, and windy, for a few days before the wedding.  But on the morning of the wedding, there was not a cloud in the sky.  It turned out to be a beautiful clear, sunny day without wind.  I am sure we will be just as impressed with the photography as we are with our overall experience.
 
And again, thank you so much for all of your hard work.  We absolutely could not have done this without you!  You are more than welcome to use us as a reference any time!
 
Mille Grazie!
Tracey

Dear Helga, Where do we start after what truly was the most amazing experience of our lives with such special memories that without your help would not have been possible.  After so much planning and anticipation, the whole 3 day wedding extravaganza exceeded all of our expectations in every way.  We are so grateful for the fundamental part you played in making everything happen to the highest standards.  Since we have been back all of our friends and family are still talking about the fabulous time they had and that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, (who can ask more than that) but all would not have been possible without your professionalism and dedication.

The Thursday night barbeque at Fonte de’ Medici was an important evening for us to welcome all of our guests and we were blown away by the quality of what was provided. The catering was exceptional and so much more than what the British consider to be a barbeque! The staff could not do enough for us and the quality of the food and wine was out of this world –so thank you for all your work in creating such a special start to our wedding celebrations.

Your recommendation for the pizzeria on Friday night in the main square of Siena (Ristorante Pizzeria Il Bandierino) was perfectly selected and we felt like royalty arriving with 50 of our friends to half a restaurant reserved for us in such a prime location!  
The wedding day itself really was amazing and met the cliché of being the best day of our lives from start to finish and from our perspective, it all happened without a hitch.  There are too many parts of the day that you organised that were all so faultless but specific mentions include Maritza, who used her hair and make up expertise to turn a girl who had enjoyed herself a little too much the days before, into a radiant bride!  The flowers were gorgeous and perfectly coordinated, which you made happen with your attention to detail and understanding as to what we wanted to achieve for our special day.  Our gold Rolls Royce was beautiful and added an extra touch of sophistication and everything about the ceremony in Certaldo Alto was truly magical, as for the food it was simply unbelievable. 
Our wedding meal was something very important to us as a couple who love great food and wine and we were overwhelmed by the standard of the catering for our entire wedding day, including the canapés round the pool, the extensive wedding banquet, the impressive cake and the flowing drinks.  The food has definitely been one of the main talking points with our guests, many commenting that it was some of the best food they have ever tasted.
We really cannot thank you enough Helga for everything you did to make our big day and the days running up to it so perfect. Nothing ever seemed too much and you were always happy to help at every step of the way, including accommodating our impromptu visits to Tuscany to finalise details.  As two people who consider organisational skills to be one of their strengths, we were so proud to have you as our wedding planner!  Your responsiveness to our correspondence was very much appreciated, as well as your helpful suggestions, professionalism and recommendations that removed for us, so many potentially stressful situations. 
We would thoroughly recommend you (and already are), without a second thought, to anyone who is planning to get married in Tuscany, as without you we know the whole amazing experience would not have been what it was.  We hope to be back to Tuscany and Fonte de’ Medici very soon, although it looks like all our guests want to join us too, that in itself really is a true testament to what you did for us and we really are so thankful!
Thanks again for everything and best wishes for the future.

Hi Sonia
 
The wedding day was fantastic.  Everything went so smoothly I was shocked.  I am sure you were working extremely hard behind the scenes but the result was a superb wedding.  Every single one of our guests had an amazing time and it completely surpassed any expectations that Mark and I had.  I thought the florist did an amazing job with the flowers, my bouquet was exactly like the picture I gave her but still managed to look better than the picture.  The room where we had dinner was dressed beautifully and looked far better than any pictures we had seen.  The catering staff, I have to say, did an excellent job.  Every guest, without exception, remarked on them.  They were efficient, polite, discrete, professional, enthusiastic and friendly.  The food was outstanding, the canapes were unbelievable, the dinner was superb.  After all of that, they then worked hard at the reception.  It was a long and hard day for them but they remained the same the whole time.  Everything was great.  Some of our guests have even said it was the best wedding they had been to.
 
Duino is a gorgeous quaint village and the people who lived there even helped us.  Mrs Mariella helped me to organise a trip to a vineyard the day before the wedding and she even drove Mark and myself there herself.  The people at the vineyard were lovely, the food was great and they made us feel welcome.  The people who work in the restaurant on the bay (where we had coffee I can never remember the name), chatted and laughed with us all when we went for dinner and, even though we probably took over the restaurant on more than one occasion and created a lot more work for them, it didn't show.  In fact, when we left Duino the next day I was quite sad as I felt almost at home there.
 
It was a pleasure to organise our wedding with you and you are the perfect person to do such a job.  It is an amazingly personal thing to try and pull together but you managed to capture exactly what Mark and I wanted.  Everything from start to finish was fun, you dealt with any queries or concerns that we had promptly and helped us find a resolution.  You are amazingly helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed "working" with you.  Sometimes the obvious is overlooked, but it has to be said that, without you, none of the above would have taken place in the way that it did. 
 
Our trip around Italy after the wedding was great.  We visited Rome, Positano and surrounding towns, we managed a day in Capri and then we flew to Sardinia.  It was a mad dash from destination to destination but we managed to pack in a lot of sightseeing, we ate some beautiful food, drank some great wine, saw some amazing sights and at the very end found some time to relax!  Italy is a breathtakingly beautiful country and was perfect for both our wedding and honeymoon.
 
Warm regards
Jackie

Dear Helga,


Overall our wedding was fantastic. We both enjoyed the day and we have received some wonderful comments and letters from our guests.

The singers blew me away! I was on the verge of tears and not being able to breathe at one point they were so moving! Everyone loved them.

I was amazed by the flowers - they were beautiful and they looked amazing. I really could not have wished for anything more, the florist took on board my colour scheme and ideas and created the most beautiful bouquets and the fountain decoration was out of this world! What a talented chap! James' mother brought home one of the bridesmaid's bouquest and it has gradually shrunken and dried but still looks spectacular. My mum was thrilled with her corsage too - I didn't expect him to go to such an effort.

Myself and bridesmaids were really happy with our hair which lasted all night through the partying! So please pass on my thanks to Mauro.

We both thought the food and service were exceptional. We and our parents thought the service was extremely professional - we were very impressed.

The driver of our Rolls Royce was the nicest chap - he took me and my dad along the Arno and we had the car stopped by locals and tourists wishing me well. I felt like a movie star! He was also very obliging with our photographer too.

A lot of people commented how smoothly the day ran and how effortless it looked ( we know the truth! - well some of it!)so thank you very much for that, and for managing the priest - Padre Maurizio was a lovely warm priest and I am more than happy it was him who married us in the end. The venue was also decorated beautifully - just as I wanted - so thank you again.

Special thanks from the groom:

I know Emma has already emailed you but I also wanted to email you personally about the wedding – sorry for the delay with this. It has been very busy since coming home.
 
Basically the wedding was unbelievable and I really can’t thank you enough for how you dealt with everything from start to finish - the church, flowers, hair dresser, singers, jazz band, DJ, cars & coaches, venue, caterers etc etc  - the list goes on. We really couldn’t have asked for it to be any more perfect than it was & we have you to thank for that. The comments we have received from guests is unbelievable – everyone was completely blown away and thought it was without doubt the best wedding they have ever been to or are likely to go to.

Buon Giorno Tina ~

Jeff and I had a very nice time in Italy.  Highlights were of course our wedding followed by seeing the Pope in Rome and visiting with family in Lucca.  Our family and friends were surprised and excited to receive our marriage announcement.

I want to take a minute to say “thank you” to you and Alberto for all the assistance you have given me –your help has been invaluable.  And I want you and Alberto to know how wonderful Bruno Sacchi, Anna Sorrentino, Massimo Amendola and Franco Lisi (Positano Car Service) were with helping to complete the wedding.  The hotel personnel at Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi were exceptional in joining in to help in everyway they could.  Everyone was so wonderful and seemed to join in with the excitement of the moment.  We feel we have made some wonderful friends in Italy and will certainly say hello when we return for anniversaries.

I’m anxious to see the photos taken of us on our wedding day.  We looked at some of them with Massimo quickly as we looked for the perfect ones for the announcement. 

Ciao!

Hi Tina,

We are both doing just fine. We miss Italy as it was absolutely stunning but are excited about the new adventure together as newlyweds.

We cannot wait to see the photos/video and are even more thrilled that they will be ready for our party in New Orleans as it looks like we may be able to share it with our family and friends. I’m hoping they will arrive before the weekend.

We’ve been meaning to write you to thank you for all your hard work and planning and certainly couldn’t have done it without you. We definitely feel we made all the right decisions including the location in Positano, the time of year in October (the weather could not have been more perfect), the church at Santa Maria Assunta, the musicians, the dinner at La Tagliata the night before, and the dinner and dancing afterwards at Le Terrazze and Music on the Rocks, and especially the Hotel Marincanto which could not have been more perfect. We also used your recommendations for Lauren’s hair (which she could have not have been more excited about and got many compliments) as well as the gifts for our guests at the limoncello shop you had suggested. The people in Positano were absolutely delightful and could not have been more friendly or accommodating.

Bruno was a great help in Naples and Giovanna was an absolute delight to have for the wedding ceremony and pictures afterwards. The photographer and videographer went above and beyond as we did not expect to have both of them both before and after the wedding as we did and could not have been more appreciative. The musicians were perfect and played beautifully.

You are more than welcome to use our comments as testimonials or provide our names, e-mail address, and phone number to future potential clients in the United States looking for a reference.

Please do not hesitate to contact us back if you have additional questions about our impression of the event or services. We were most pleased with your assistance in planning the event and could not thank you enough for making our wedding day one that we will always remember and cherish for a lifetime.

Best Regards,

--JP

Ciao Sonia
How are you? Hope all is well with you.
 
We had the most wonderful, perfect wedding in Sorrento - thank you so much for making all the arrangements so everything was stress-free and went according to plan.
 
We wanted to get married in Sorrento or near by because we had been on holiday there and loved the area. You provided a lot of options for where we could hold the ceremony and reception - the pictures and website links being most useful. We appreciated the constant correspondence and that you always replied very quickly to all our enquiries.  We also liked the range of packages and services you offered - suitable for different sizes of wedding parties and a range of budgets. We felt you provided a lot of information but without the "hard sell" as we say in Britain - there was no pressure put on us to buy certain products. Instead, it felt like you simply wanted to help create our perfect wedding.
 
We travelled out to Sorrento several days before the wedding to have a holiday as well as the wedding! We were glad we did - we were able to enjoy being back in Italy and have chance to relax after a busy time at work recently. And we were available to talk to the florist, restaurant and Alessandra to confirm the arrangements.
 
The florist was friendly and showed us various flowers. The bouquet and boutonniere were as we had ordered.
Tina at O'Parruchino was fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful and we were given the option of various intimate locations within the vast restaurant. We sat under lemon trees for a long, relaxed lunch. Tina had prepared a lovely table with coordinating table cloth and flowers of our choice. The food was delicious. The waiters were attentive but not over-bearing - they made sure we had everything we needed and then left us to enjoy the warm sunny day. We were told we could stay as long as we wanted.
Alessandra met us a few days before, to tell us about the procedures. She ensured everything went smoothly and was a fun character during the ceremony and photographs.
The musicians played lovely music.
 
All our guests enjoyed the day so much; it was such a relaxed and fun day in a beautiful location. (And so nice to be in sunshine in October - we have had only a few days of sun at all this whole year in UK!)
 
We would highly recommend both getting married in Italy and your services. We were not stressed or worried at all - in contrast to many brides marrying in Britain! It is partly because Sorrento has such a relaxed and romantic atmosphere; everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. But also because you had made all the arrangements for us and we simply needed to get to the Chiostro di San Francesco!
 
Best wishes

Hi Tina

Not a problem to use us as references, give clients this email or use our comments on your website.

In terms of feedback we would say that the wedding day itself was absolutely perfect. We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the whole experience was magical. Having Helga on site meant that we didn’t have to worry about a thing so we could really relax and enjoy our day. She was wonderful – organised, discreet, helpful, friendly to everyone – exactly what we had wished for. The church and the castle were simply beautiful and having everyone stay at Fonte de Medici meant that it seemed like a three day party! Looking back on our day there isn’t a single thing we would want to change.

Thanks again!
Best regards

Ciao Sonia,

Sorry for the delay, I've been meaning to write you to thank you for all of your help.  Chad and I had a wonderful time in Italy and we especially loved our wedding day!  Everything went very smoothly and everyone at the Villa Lais was very kind and congratulatory.  The Villa was beautiful and the ceremony felt intimate and special.  It was a wonderful stress free day. We received my bouquet and Chad's boutonniere at the hotel, they were beautiful! Our car picked us up, drove us to the Villa and then after the ceremony our driver and photographer gave us a city tour and we took pictures with the most amazing backdrops. Afterwards we were dropped at our hotel.  Everything was taken care of, we just got to enjoy our day. We are very pleased with our memories of our wedding day!

Ely was awesome, please thank her again for us. We regret that we didn't get a picture with her.  Thank you, Sonia for all of your help with every detail over the past few months! You have been truly wonderful!  Please feel free to add our letter to your references.  We would absolutely recommend you and Wedding Italy to anyone!

How are you? I hope you are winding down now for a break after the wedding season! Anyway  - first of all  - a huge thank you again for everything  - believe it or not - everyone is STILL talking about my wedding and I am still coming down to earth. It was a dreamlike experience - and we were so lucky the boats went - it made such a difference. The church and flowers were beautiful and I had the warmest round of applause from the people at Vernazza when I arrived. It was very special - and Father Jan even rang the bells when we came out and again we had a huge round of applause. All my family and friends were very taken with the location and kept asking me how I'd found it and I just kept telling them that you had found it based on what I had requested. Well done again! It was fantastic - I just hope I haven't ruined the wedding experience for others now given they are still talking about it several weeks later (and having been to other weddings).
 
The string quartet were fantastic and did a brilliant job with the sheet music I sent over. It was very special and when they started to play Danny Boy - a stream of sunlight just came in the window and seemed to light up Darren and I at the front. Loredana was very good and received lots of compliments  - it was great to have her there on the day and I'd really like to send her a thank you card if you had her address.
 
The violin and accordion player worked really well because they took it in turns to play much of the music and the accordion player came around and serenaded each table which my guests loved (a real novelty), The violinist got big rounds of applause for some of her Irish melodies - thanks for finding them. The food was amazing and Fabrizio did a brilliant job and the staff were very fast clearing the courses (all 8 of them) and the wedding cake was beautiful. I really cannot think of anything I would change.

Once again - many thanks Sonia - I simply cannot express how delighted we still are. It was simply amazing! Let me know if you want me to provide a testimonial etc - I'd be more than happy to recommend your services
 
Best Wishes - Ruth

Hi Tina-

Just wanted to drop a quick note to you to thank you for everything.  The wedding was amazing... More than we could have ever expected.  You along with Daniela and Tanya were fabulous in making everything go smoothly plus you all are so sweet and reassuring during what could easily be one of the most stressful times in most people’s lives!
All of our guests were completely blown away with the setting.  They adored Malcesine, the restaurant and of course the castle.  Everything was perfect. 
Thank you, thank you and thanks again!!

I still hope to meet you one day.  Hopefully when we come back— and we WILL be back!

All the best,

Dana

Giovanna was brilliant and she looked after us.

I am really looking forward to seeing Mauro's photos. 

We will be at Relais Blu until tomorrow when we then leave for a private boat trip to make our way to Capri.  All the family just left yesterday and had a fantastic time.

Thanks again and pass on my sincere thanks to all the team.

Thank you and all your team once again for making our wedding in Italy a wonderful, memorable day and of course for organising our amazing honeymoon right down to the very last detail.  Having everything catered for, from private transfers, train journey's, flights to hotel accommodation just made our life so much easier.  I couldn't have done it without your sevices.  It made the run up to the wedding relaxing and actually enjoyable - which I don't hear many brides at home say!!!

Hi Sonia,

Claire and I were really happy with the service we got from Wedding Italy.

You were extremely efficient in how you dealt with things and pro- actively dealt with issues before they had even arisen, saving us a  great deal of stress. All we hoped for was a special day, but couldn't   never have imagined how special it would turn out. Our guests had an amazing time mostly agreeing that it was the best wedding they had  ever been at, and that we had raised the bar to a completely new level! The food and drink at the reception was simply amazing, which  is exactly what we have come to expect from the Italians. Also the  american bar at the reception was much better than we had expected,  the drinks on offer were of great quality and in plentiful supply, and it lasted the night fine. We were also really pleased with Chiesa di  San Domenico which turned out to be a beautiful church. All in all it  was brilliant.

Everything was perfect and we're  both really grateful to you and Helga for all your help. Feel free to 
use any of this text as a testimonial to other clients.

Best of luck for the future, Grazie mille!

Helga, we would like to thank you so much for helping us organise our wedding day which was just fantastic and we couldn't of asked for a better day for so many different reasons. Everything just fell into place so well and we thank you for that. The jazz quartet and band were just brilliant. The flowers were gorgeous too and the singer in the church was excellant, her voice was amazing. I just can't believe how well it all went as I had no idea what anything was going to be like but you certainly made sure it was perfect for us. The hairdressers even worked out well and i'm sure they knew in the end I might of been the bride hehehee but nobody was saying anything. The photographer was great for all the scenery photos and very imaginative I must say. Can't wait to see them.
 
It was a bit of a gamble getting married abroad with all the organising involved and for me to only visit the area once and liase with people via emails and by phone only. I read on different forums about bad wedding planners or peoples bad experiences but thankfully I can praise my wedding planner and tell the story of how amazing our wedding day was in every way. We really were overwhelmed ourselves with the setting and with everything. I must say it all went so well and i will most definitely be recommending it to everyone. If you need me to be a reference for you at any stage just pop me an email to this email address and to my work one just incase I stop using this one.
 
Thank you so much for all your help, organising and co-ordinating.

Hello and how are you?  We have returned from our honeymoon (great time--loved amalfi and germany!) and now it's back to regular life!  I can't believe it's all over now!  Everything at our wedding (and whole weekend) was absolutely wonderful and I can't thank you enough for all your help and hard work!!!  We had a wonderful time! Our guests cannot stop talking about how fantastic everything was, which makes me soo happy!  I couldn't have done this without you!  …

By the way I never got a chance to thank the videographer when he left--he was great and so patient and I look forward to seeing the movie! … 
I can't wait to see Carlo's work as well. ..
I also wanted to thank the florist--the arrangements and everything were simply perfect!!!  I am so glad I was able to go see him in person. 
Also the hair and makeup couple did a great job and I don't think I ever said goodbye to them! 
The catering was so fabulous and professional--I didn't get to eat so much, but our guests have really been raving!  …
From what I heard of the string quartet, they were also wonderful!  I'm glad it worked out to play with the girls' singing.  …

Ciao Helga,

So great to hear from you again. We just got back from beautiful Italy this past Friday evening. The honeymoon in Positano, Napoli, and Roma went so well. We had such an amazing time!

Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We cannot stop raving about how wonderful you were to us Helga, THANK THANK YOU for everything. We were just able to relax and enjoy our special day. You did a fabulous job! Let me know if there are any more formal surveys that you would like us to fill out on your behalf. We have nothing but great things to say about your services!

Ciao ciao, lots of love and hugs from Eryn and Alex!!!!

Ciao Sonia-
 
I miss Italy already! The weather is so hot here in Florida, and it was perfect while we were in Florence.
 
So if any bride wants to contact us for a reference, please do not hesitate to provide our email address. I'd be happy to help. Or if you want to use any of the photos, it's fine with us.
 
We greatly appreciate all the help you provided along the way. We never could have figured out the legalities of marring in Italy without you. The excursion we took the day before the wedding was my favourite part of the trip. The tour guide was very informative. The restaurant you picked ( I can't remember the name if it) was amazing. Our guests were pleased to have a nice lunch as a group (28 of us),  and the food was perfect. It was the typical Italian lunch our guests were pleased to eat.  The Chianti castle was our next stop for wine tasting. The people at the castle were expecting us, so they took us right in for a tour. Than we had 4 different types of Chianti wine. We were in heaven! By the time we got back to La Borriana, we were so tired, but the staff there had another wonderful meal prepared for us.
When Adam and I first got engaged, I had a visual of how I wanted our wedding location to look like. La Borriana was even more beautiful. The views surrounding the farmhouse are amazing. It was like a dream for me. The staff there were so helpful and accommodating. Everyone tried so hard to make our wedding dreams a reality. Alex and Stephania, the owners, are so sweet. Francesca was our main contact during our stay. She went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and she also helped our guests with any other bookings they had to make (taxi, cell phone problems),
 
You and Helga from WeddingItaly made Adam and I feel confident that our wedding would be a successful trip for all our guests. Before we started looking for a location in Italy, I was concerned that planning a wedding overseas would be too difficult. With the assistance of WeddingItaly, the process was painless and probably easier than planning a wedding in my hometown.
 
Thank you so much for everything. Our wedding dreams could never have been accomplished without you!

Hi Sonia
 
Sorry it's taken us so long to get back to you, please feel free to use any/all of this on your website.  We loved our wedding and can't praise it or you highly enough!
 
We would like to thank you for all of your hard work which made our wedding as wonderful and as memorable as it was.
 
The whole day was really special and all our guests agreed that it was the best - and most unusual - wedding they had ever been to.
 
You had organised everything really well and everything went very smoothly!  The Fiat 600 was the star of the show!  It was beautiful and Matteo was really friendly.  Lot of people were taking photos of the car wherever we went!
 
The boat trip on the lake was fantastic.  The scenery was spectacular and Sirmione was a great place to have photos taken.  We absolutely love the photos  - they are really creative and original.  The photographer was great fun and we all felt very relaxed and comfortable and this came through in the photos.
 
The flowers were a lovely surprise - they were exactly the same as the ones in the photo I sent you and were so colourful and vibrant - they really stand out in the photos and have had loads of compliments.
 
The venues you found for us were all splendid.  San Felice town hall was great - the mayor made us feel very welcome.  The boat was beautiful - very romantic!!  Hotel Sogno was out of this world - very sophisticated!  The views from the terrace on to the lake were breathtaking and the meal was delicious.  All our guests agreed that the Italian wedding cake is far superior to the British one!  We had never had so much food at one meal and each course was tastier than the previous one!
 
We'd also like to make special mention of Anna.  She was lovely and friendly and made the whole day go without a hitch!
 
Throughout the whole process of arranging our wedding, the communication between us was quick and you were always great at finding all the things I asked for!  I always felt you were easily contactable - by email when I was in Scotland and then by telephone when I was in Italy.
 
Our wedding was the most special and exciting day of our lives and it wouldn't have been possible without your help.  Everything we asked you to arrange was done and exceeded our expectations - transport, flowers, musician, venues etc etc!
 
I have already passed your details to a friend who is thinking of getting married in Italy next year and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else.  Everything was wonderful and we wouldn't change a thing!!
 
Thanks again.
 
Love
 
Claire & Huw

We had an absolutely wonderful time thank you, it was everything we could have wished for and more. We were very happy about everything that you and the people did for us and we will always recommend both of you.
 
I have attached a few of photos from the day - we have lots of good ones that show off the venue so let me know if you would like any more emailing to show to future clients as you would be more than welcome to have them. It's funny because I love the pictures upstairs where we got married, it looked beautiful in there so I am very glad they changed the law because it was much better!!!!!
