When Pete and I decided to get married in Italy, we didn’t know where to start. I tried contacting venues direct but wasn’t making any headway – it was difficult to find somewhere within budget and stress free! By chance, I found the My Secret Italy website (through a google search) and after speaking to the lovely Julie, we decided to go ahead and book. Were we glad we did! Planning our wedding was easy with Julie’s help – she guided us through the process with ease and was always on hand to offer advice or to chat through the different options. However, it was after finally arriving in Santa Maria that we truly understood the effortless planning and preparations that had been taking place. Julie went that extra mile to make our stay special from making sure we had baby milk when we arrived to introducing us to all the locals. Julie was our intepreter, babysitter, personal shopper and friend alongside her role as wedding planner! However, more importantly, the day itself was perfect from start to finish and went without a hitch! I will always remember Julie as our fairy godmother who made my perfect wedding day dream a reality.
We didn’t visit Santa Maria beforehand so it was a total surprise on arrival. The photos hadn’t done the place justice; Santa Maria was just what we wanted, a classic Italian town full of charm, especially the friendly locals! We got married at The Belvedere and the views were spectacular! Our reception took place at Lido Azzurro and the food was heavenly and the setting perfect. I would whole-heartedly recommend Santa Maria di Castellabate as a wedding destination and My Secret Italy as the best wedding planning team in the business.
Nic, Pete, Lily and Evie xxxx
