I just wanted to say again how much Dec and I appreciate all the hard work and effort you and the rest of the team put into to making it a great day and of course to use a cliche, one that we'll never forget. It really couldn't have gone better...even the lamp falling off the wall in the church when Fr Francesco talked a little too long in his homily :) and the fact that I could not light a candle to save my life.
We're still hearing so many compliments from family and friends, especially about the flowers, food and music which is great to hear. From a personal point of view, I was completely overwhelmed, especially the singers and organist in the church...I was pretty calm until I heard Delibes and then I lost it (the most nervous bride in the world - Dec thought I was going to collapse halfway up the aisle). People were even asking how we got the flowers up to the top of the pillars so they've heard lots about the ladder problems. All I'll remember is the beautiful sunflowers everywhere I could see.
I won't make this a long email, but I was so impressed with everything. The flowers, my bouquet(which was fabulous) the music, the singing in the villa and our fantastic DJ. The food and wine were so amazing and exactly what I wanted. Everyone is sending us photos of the ham from the canapes. Matteo and his team were unbelievably professional and charming and we loved the guys making cocktails - even the blue light behind the bar and the layout of the canapes and deserts was of such a fantastic standard. I just want to pass on my thanks to you, Alberto and Sonia and also to Rosaria, Matteo and all his guys, to Oreo and the trad band, to Lucca and Elia (? spelling correct) and of course Mr Deciani and the rest of the team in the villa who looked after us so well.
I had a great time and I hated to see you so stressed on my behalf but I hope in some way the day wasn't too crazy for you (its tough trying to get Dec out of the pool to get him married:)
Anyway, if you're ever in Dublin, please give Dec or me a call and we can meet up. It would be great to see you again and have a few drinks or a bite to eat without wedding stresses.
Thank you so much again for making everything I had in my head a reality and doing it with such grace and thoughtfulness.
Ciao Alberto e Tina,
Volevamo ringraziarvi per il vostro supporto durante il nostro matrimonio,e' stata una giornata indimenticabile e davvero speciale!
Una email non e' certo il mezzo piu' adatto per un ringraziamento, ma lo faremo in maniera migliore prossisamente!. Scusateci poi se lo facciamo solo adesso, ma ho dovuto viaggiare per lavoro e sono appena tornata ieri sera!.
Intanto volevo dirvi che i nostri ospiti sono stati particolarmente colpiti dal cibo che era squisito, dai watertaxis e poi ovviamente dal palazzo, dai fiori da TUTTO!!!!!!
Le uniche cose che magari penso potevano essere meglio sono state l'allestimento dei tavoli (dove erano i sottobicchieri?? - il nastro viola non era proprio quello che cercavo ma lo so che il povero Jacopo ha fatto il possibile) e la musica che non si sentiva bene in giardino (DJ che non so perche' ha suonato il suo repertorio invece che il nostro fin dall'inizio...!!!)
Ma a parte questi dettagli, pensiamo che il matrimonio sia riuscito davvero benissimo!!
Vi chiediamo per favore di contattare i fotografi, vorremmo vedere le foto ufficiali il prima possibile!!!!!. Anche Salvo&Miki ne hanno scattate molte (alla fine sono anche venuti a vedermi!!!) - si potrebbero vedere??????
Grazie di cuore,
We just got back from Italy, and we're already missing it! The wedding day was absolutely perfect! It was a lot better than anything that we could have imagined!
Thank you sooooo much to you and Barbara for all your help with the planning of the wedding. All the vendors that you have recommended were absolutely wonderful! We were a little apprehensive with everything since we couldn't meet any of the vendors until the wedding in Italy, but we had no reason to worry - everyone did a great job.
The flowers were absolutely beautiful! I can't believe that the florist was able to deliver an even better arrangement for the reception than what I had imagined! And I loved Gabriella! She was such a sweet person, and gave me such a beautiful hairstyle - everyone complimented me on it! The wedding car and driver were also so great, and Paulo, the videographer, was so wonderful as well. Although there was a language barrier, we just loved the driver and Paulo - they were wonderful men. And the music was perfect! Although I was dissapointed that our cd didn't play, Sara, the harpist did a wonderful job during the ceremony and cocktail hour! She was very nice. And the folk trio was perfect! Everybody loved the music, it was so much fun!
The food was also all very good! The caterers were wonderful - there were sooo much food and it was all so very delicious! The only thing I was confused about was that we were supposed to have the heifer loin for the second course, but had a veal chop instead. The veal was really good though, so it was fine. And the cake! WOW! Our jaws dropped when we saw what they made for us - it was gigantic! And sooooo delicious - definitely the best wedding cake we have ever tasted!
Helga also did a spectacular job with helping us with all the paperwork. We had no trouble at all since she did pretty much everything for us in Italy. We wished that the paperwork we had to do here in the US was as easy as Italy! Her daughter, Katrina was also very nice and helpful during the day of the wedding. We liked her a lot, and she did everything we asked her to. She did seem a little inexperienced, and we wished that she had directed us more during the ceremony, but it still went off pretty well.
We can't thank you enough for helping us pull off the wedding of our dreams! It was definitely one of the best days of our lives and we will never forget it. All of our guests kept raving about how it the best wedding they've ever attended and how much fun they all had. It was just incredible!
Of course you can use our comments for your future clients. You can also give them our email address for references if you'd like. We would be happy to rave about your services. Any bride can feel safe knowing that they are in your hands - they can totally put all their trust in you, and know that their wedding would be absolutely perfect!
Do you know when we would be able to get the legal paperwork? Also, do you know when Paulo would be able to provide us with the cds of the edited and raw footage of the wedding? Chris and I can't wait to watch our whole wedding.
Grazie Mille for everything!
Maria and Chris Doubleday
We love you! Thank you to Tina, Sonia, Kata, Nicholas and Alberto too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys are a REAL TEAM!
We would just like to say again how much we enjoyed the day and it couldn't have been better organised. All of our family and friends agreed too. My mother is promoting Italy as a wedding destination to all her friends and work colleaguesJ. There is really nothing about the service provided that could be improved. From the start Mike and I felt like we were the only couple that you were planning a wedding for, and your one to one service was excellent.
On the villa, all the staff there were really great and responded quickly to any of our requests both before hand and on site. The villa is a very special location for a wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.
We really can't thank you enough and we mean that. You helped make our day very special and also given that our two familes had not really met before, the villa provided a wonderful setting for everyone to easily get to know each other.
I had just sat down to email you when i saw this.
We had a fabulous time away and we couldn't of had a more elegant and special day.
We have no problem with you adding our comments for the website.
Every thing was how was asked and more. We didn't have to think of anything on the day as you had cars/flowers church reception etc arranged.
Also when we came back to the villa after the ceremony we could just relax with family while music played and we enjoyed cocktails.
Other then that i have nothing but high praise for you Helga and your business .
Again we couldn't have hoped for a nicer and more professional service. I feel sad now that it is over and also that we will no longer be in contact after this but if any of you future clients want any more feedback please feel free to send them to us and we will give the best recommendation we can.
Thank you so much
The wedding was wonderful. Everyone had a fantastic time and it went beyond our expectations.
Fonte de Medici was top class. The bbq was a huge success. The food was amazing and there was a huge amount. We didn’t expect it to be so good. The staff were extremely helpful, the grounds, the pool, the trattoria, its all unbelievable.
The day itself was perfect. The music, the venue, the weather and the reception all went extremely well. The caterers were fantastic. All the food was superb. The views from the reception area are unbelievable. The DJ played the music we sent and the mohitos were a huge success.
I really couldn’t be happier with how the whole event went. The San Gimignano trip was great and I’m glad I decided on that as a Friday event. People were very happy to have time to themselves to walk around the town, have dinner and a gelato and soak up the atmosphere.
The wine tasting was a great success, the Verrazzano Castle is beautiful and I’m glad I picked it. Our guide was excellent and he sold a lot of wine after lunch.
I would like to thank you so much for organising everything and for showing us Fonte de Medici. The caterers, venue, church music, soprano, photographer, priest, everything was top class and beyond our expectations.
There really isn’t one complaint from us. I would recommend it to anyone as the perfect wedding venue and since we have come back home we have been hearing wonderful reports of the whole event.
Where do we start? Thank you and the team at Wedding Italy so much for arranging our big day. We had an amazing wedding - just perfect.
We appreciate that doesn't just happen by accident, and are grateful for all the hard work which went into making our day so special. You really did go the extra mile to make our day unique to us. Your service was excellent, you kept us up-to-date throughout and promptly answered the hundreds of questions we had. Thank goodness for email!
You took on board all our requirements and came up with the perfect wedding and reception venues, flowers, reception, catering and disco.
Not only were our expectations met, they was exceeded. There were lots of special moments which took us completely by surprise - the lovely words from Mr Lombardi at the ceremony, the crowds of locals and tourists congratulating and applauding us in Florence, even the paparazzi - we felt like film stars for the day, the amazing car, the photographers staying much later than we expected and the DJ who was enjoying himself so much he joined us on the dance floor!
Not that everything went to plan. When I lost my passport the day before we were due to fly you reacted very calmly...
And a big thank you must also go to Verena and the team at Villa Poggio ai Merli too for being so accommodating, to Convivium for leaving us so much booze after the open bar closed and to Carlo and Angelo for being so brilliant we actually enjoyed having our photos taken.
Our guests had a fantastic weekend too - with several saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Hello sonia, we are in rome and having the time of our lives. thank you so much for all the assitance you provided for us to get married in such a beautiful city as turin is.
the day was out of a fairy tale. the weather was warm, the birds were singing, everyone looked beautiful. tracy the interpretter was so helpful, beyond her scope of work i am sure. the staff at the meridien lingotto, especially raphaella and elena were all amazing to us.
the event was very well organized. all we had to do was sign a few papers and then show up. what more could you ask for? the official had so many weddings to perform that day it seemed like there was one every twenty minutes but he made us feel like ours was the only one that day.
the photographer was great!
if you still have the address of our witnesses, please send our wedding pictures to them. their names are jane and gary catton and i have forgotten their address right now ha ha.
it would of been great to meet you, so maybe next time.
thank you again so much.
mr. jason and mrs. dieda john
hello sonia. we are having the time of our lives. what a way to start our new life together.
yes please use our comments, name address etc. we would appreciate it if you would.
we threw some coins in the trevi fountain which means we will come back again and when we do....we will have to have to vino rosso together!
take care and all the best.
jason and dieda john
We just got back from our honeymoon last night, and it was absolutely wonderful. Our wedding day was amazing, and we were very happy with everything that you did!!! Mrs. Giovanna was such a delight, and we felt really blessed to have her at the wedding. She read us a poem during the ceremony and Jason and I were wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of it? Can you assist?
We definitely want to write down our comments and share them with you as a future reference. We were SO pleased with the services, as everything was absolutely perfect. Please allow us a few days to write up our comments for you.
One more quick question, I believe the wedding photos were going to be put on a CD and mailed directly to us. When might we expect to receive that CD? (As you can imagine, I am very anxious to see the pictures!!!)
Thanks for everything Tina. You have been so helpful and so wonderful to work with throughout this entire process. We are so grateful for all that you did!
Sorry that I couldn't answer your email before. We had some things to arrange when we came back from our honeymoon.
We very much enjoyed our wedding and our honeymoon. It was a fantastic experience and the most wonderful holiday I have ever had in my life. A very special thank to you for suggesting our honeymoon accommodation - it was a fabulous place and very good value. Your specialist cooperation in preparing the papers and finding service providers has proven to be very useful - ours was not an easy wedding. Without you we would have gone mad.
Of course you can use this feedback for your customers.
Everything was fine:
the town hall was fantastic both inside and outside / Patrizia of the wedding office gave us comprehensive information two days before the wedding and we have been married by the mayor in person
The cerimony started a bit later than 12 because the mayor was not there yet, some guests arrived well on time, ohters even during the cerimony. So it was not really a problem if we sent the invitation for 11.30. The sala rossa was very nice and with decorative old furniture, there were only a few chairs so that most of the people had to stand.
After the wedding we went for a small reception that we booked the day before in Brisighella in l'Infinito. Wonderful place and very good food.
flowers and bomboniere were very nice.
hair and makeup + photographer were ok, not excellent, but it was all right
La Mormoraia was absolutely fantastic
I attach a picture for you to see.
Mirella and Chris,
Everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for all your help. The day went as planned and everything ran smoothly. The lunch at Cantinetta Antinori was fabulous. The staff there were incredible and we have the most delightful time. We stayed 3 hours for lunch! Villa Vedita is a wonderful location with an incredible view. We had such a lovely ceremony with the most perfect view in the world. The staff at Villa Vedita were efficient and very pleasant. Our day could not have been better. We definitely would recommend your services to others.
I have attached a photograph. You may use my comments for your web site. Thanks again!
Lani Biafore and Michael O'Mara
We want to thank you for the most beautiful day of our lives!!!!! It was so romantic that I couldn't stop crying during the ceremony. Mrs. D'Amato was so wonderful!!!! She is very good at what she does. Thank you for arranging everything. The mandolinist was so nice, perfect, romantic ... my husband loved this surprise!!!! We went to Le Sirenuse for dinner and the mandolinist was working there. He actually started palying 'here comes the bride' when we walked in and everyone started clapping and congratulating us! BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
Thanks again!!! We are so lucky that we found you to help us ... I could not have asked for anything more!!!!! You guys are so wonderful :) :) :) :)
Nicole and Jim
Of course you can use our comments on the website. we thought the service you provided was absolutely excellent, took away a lot of stress, we quie simply couldn't have done it without you! The email service was brilliant for me, it was easy for me to fit it in around work and meant i could reply / ask questions when convenient. we cannot thank you enough for organising our special day for us.
joanne and john
We wanted to write to you to thank you properly for our beautiful wedding in Lucca in August 2009. We have no hesitation in recommending you and 'Wedding Italy' to other British couples wanting to get married in Italy.
When we first approached various wedding planners we were a bit disappointed that most companies didn't seem to understand that we wanted a very simple wedding, they wanted us to look at castles and huge villas and have caterers. Whilst I'm sure this would be lovely it wasn't the day we wanted. You, on the other hand, seemed to understand our requests perfectly and everything we asked for, you organised beautifully.
It was great meeting Helga a few days before the wedding and she made us feel at ease during the official signing of the paperwork. On the day everything ran very smoothly. I was so happy with the hairdresser and the transport company were all on time and my car was fantastic - it was a really great experience driving to Lucca getting some 'beeps' off everyone . The Town Hall where we had the ceremony in Lucca was stunning - even more amazing than the photographs.
Our photographer was really nice. We really enjoyed going on the walk around Lucca with her - she was very funny! ...and when we received the disc of the photos on our return we really appreciated what a great job she did. The photos are so important and we couldn't be happier with them.
The restaurant that we walked to afterwards (Buca di Sant'Antonio) was superb. They set up drinks and canapes outside (I think Helga requested this), then we had our own room for the 20 of us. It was great service and great food. Also, the wedding cake was gorgeous - I hope I get to taste something like that again!
We both have such great memories of being on holiday with our closest family and friends and having such a special wedding day in the middle of it all! Thank you for all of the planning that you did for us. I wish I could ask you to do it for us every year! If any of your future customers want to speak to us directly then please feel free to give out my email address.
With very best wishes
Katie and Chris
Thanks for getting back to me. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us to have a beautiful wedding which ran so, so smoothly. We had a wonderful day. Very, very special!!!
With Greatest Thanks
Mr & Mrs Craig Woodhams
Well, Where should we start to explain about our wedding in Italy. I had emailed various companies about coordinating weddings in Italy, Sonia was the most helpful in more ways than one. Even thought we where not positive when, where and how, she was able to assist us in many ways. That is why we deceided to go with Wedding Italy because Sonia took that extra step to help us feel confident about the choices we would be making.
From the Start everything was easily understood and so many questions where asked of her I am sure she must have thought I was mad. I was able to do so much by looking at things through the internet, the fact that we did not see things in person did not matter,that was so great. Sonia was a great help from the start to the finish. We would not change a thing.
Anna who was our on site coordinator in Malcesine was great, because even though we had a very small simple wedding, there where alot of little things that you completely forget about!!!! but she was one step ahead of us, So friendly and nice. A real pleasure and NO WORRIES. It is not often now days that you can trust in services and products, but the way Sonia and Anna handeled everything was so professional. We did not worry about one thing becasue we knew that Sonia & Anna had taken care of all that needed to be done. The Photographer was FANTASTIC!! Everything, there was not one thing that we would change, not for a million euros.
I would reccommend Wedding Italy to everyone,We can not thank you enough, for the wedding of a lifetime that we and our guests are still talking about like it was yesterday.
All the best,
Colm and Kris Ryan
I hope this finds you keeping well.
we are great and had a fabulous wedding in venice....Thank you for all your support and co-ordination, the day went so well.
Again thanks again to you and Sonia of course....
Catherine and Patrick
I just wanted to let you know that we had a trully beautiful wedding day.
Thank you kindly for all your assistance, it was a long and exhausting process but it was definately well worth it....the altafiumara was absolutely beautiful, and Don Michele was so kind and was genuinely pleased to be assisting us with our wedding ceremony. Father Benjamin was really lovely and perfomed an excellent ceremony. The church was beautifully presented and all the guests were very impressed. The vocalist was amazing!!
Thanks again for your help, it's a pity we were never able to meet face to face.
ANNA CUNNINGHAM and AIDAN HUGHES – Catholic and civil Wedding in Vernazza, May 27th 2009 email@example.com IR
We had an absolutely wonderful wedding day! Everything went perfect, it was such a relaxing and happy day. Aidan and I loved every minute as did our families. Vernazza and especially the church was beautiful, we could not have imagined any more from our most special day.
Thankyou so much for all your work, the flowers were wonderful and Loredana was very helpful and kind.
We appreciate everything you have done for us!
Anna & Aidan
We had an amazing time!!!
I can speak for the both of us in saying that the day was planned fantastically, I could not have asked for anything more to have been done on the day. Luisella had everything in hand and took away all of the stress that can be had when organizing on your own. Everything we had chosen to have on the day made it perfect and we would not have changed a single thing and could not have improved on it at all. The casino was great fun as were the performers greeting us at the stairs, it all added the atmosphere and the guests were amazed as were we!!! The band also were brilliant and were exactly what we wanted and more!!
We only wish we could do it all over again!!!
We would be more than happy to be used as references and can even send you some pictures of the day which speak for themselves!!
How is your summer? Scott and I are back home now and the wedding was perfect! Alessandra and Bruno were so helpful and everything went smoothly. I can't thank you enough.
Thank you again for all your planning and hard work!
stiamo molto bene!!! Siamo appena tornato dal viaggio di nozze: 2 settimane a case dei genitori di Angi a San Diego con ricevimento ("secondo matrimonio") per tutti i parenti e amici di Angi e 5 giorni a Las Vegas!!! E' Stato fantastico!
Che ti posso dire, mi chiedi di fare alcuni commenti sulla nostra esperienza avuta con la tua agenzia: beh devo dirti che noi ci siamo trovati molto bene affidandoci a te! Personalmente ti ho trovato molto professionale e al tempo stesso estremamente gentile e disponibile! Quindi siamo molto soddisfatti del tuo operato!
Siamo assolutamente contenti e ci sentiremmo di consigliarti pienamente a conoscenti che si trovassero nella stessa situazione nostra e che in futuro intendessero sposarsi!!!!l
Andrea ed Angi
.. from the bride:
Sorry for the late reply, Andrea and I have been having too much fun on our honeymoon in Las Vegas.
We really enjoyed the services that you provided for us, and your fast replies to our questions. Your company helped us relax a lot about the legal side of the wedding. Thank you for all your help and concern, helping us put together a wedding that would have been a lot more stressful without the legal advice and help you have given us.
We have just got back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. Everything was perfect, the flowers, the lunch, the boat trip – everyone really enjoyed themselves, we couldn’t have hoped for better. Rita was really lovely and made the day run so smoothly and Giuseppe was great, we can’t wait to see the photos.
Thank you again for a wonderful day.
Rebecca & Paul
