We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the hard work you put in to make our wedding everything we wished for. From the moment we spoke over the phone it was obvious that this was not just a job for you and that love and passion for helping people carried through even beyond the days of the wedding. A couple of examples where you went over and above what we would ever have expected is when you went to meet our friend at the train station at 11pm at night because her plane had been delayed. Or greeting the bus at Garden Riveria hotel and matching name to face of around 30 guests who had just arrived. A particular highlight for us was the cool VW convertible beetle you arranged as a surprise for our wedding transport for the day – brilliant!
All of the vendors which you chose for us we were absolutely delighted with. Veronica did such an amazing job with the flowers and I was blown away with how beautifully she transformed the pictures I gave her to real life. This could not have been done without your extra time to help translate all of my specific ideas into Italian. Domenico’s taxi service was punctual, clean and 5 star. Anna did a wonderful job with my hair, she was quick, professional and a lovely and calm person to be in the room on the morning of the wedding. The food and drink every step of the wedding day was first class and even though everything was planned, it was always bigger and better than we expected. From the canapes that Carlo organised at Trezene in addition to our lemon sorbet, to the pink prosecco and Italian cakes which got rave reviews from our guests, through to the gorgeous wedding cake which Fiore at Belvedere had the baker’s decorate so beautifully. The BBQ the day after the wedding in Lido Azzuro blew us away. The abundance of food and the amazing quality had numerous guests come up to us and say it was some of the best food they had eaten anywhere in Italy.
What can I say about Santa Maria di Castellabate? We are so over-the-moon that you encouraged us to come see it because it is such a beautiful and authentic Italian town, that really sparkles in the summer. The ocean was clean and crystal blue. Everyone was very happy with their accommodation and there were glowing reviews in particular about Palazetto Florio and Torre Porotti. Every restaurant we were recommended and ate in was so lush and the locals were so friendly. We were like celebrities in the town because everyone knew we were getting married/just got married or that our guests were part of the wedding. It was so moving that on the day of the wedding random townspeople waved or came up to us, held our hands and wished us good luck.
Our time in Santa Maria was an unforgettable experience and it was only because of you that we discovered it for ourselves. The wedding day was the best day of our lives and so we would like to thank you again for helping to make this happen. We are so happy that our guests loved it as much as us too because you bring them all this way – people came up to us and told us it was the best wedding they had ever been at and some even said it was one of the best times they’ve had in their lives ever. You don’t get reviews much better than that!
Thanks again Julie,
Love Angela and Mark
