The most incredible person you’ll ever work with.
If you are considering Victoria as your wedding planner, stop reading and book her immediately. There are not enough words to describe how incredible she is.Sent on 10/02/2019
We were introduced to Victoria and before we decided to have our wedding in Puglia, she was so helpful. Out of 3 planners I reached out to, she was the only one who responded within minutes (the other two took 4 and 6 weeks to respond). We live in the US and she coordinated for my sister to fly over from London and visit several venues before we made a decision. This was all before we had even moved forward with Victoria. From day 0, she went above and beyond.
We had never visited Puglia and were not planning to see our venue until the week of our wedding. We took a huge leap of faith which would not have been possible without Victoria. She understood exactly what we were looking for, made suggestions to add or amend things we may not have considered, was incredibly responsive and not only coordinated our entire wedding day, but the two events we held before (cooking class and welcome event) and recovery brunch / pool party the day after.
Victoria coordinated every guests accommodation, transfers from the airport / train station, extra curricular activities and even provided suggestions for other parts of Italy our guests were visiting!
Victoria was also present at all four of our wedding events. Not just for a couple of hours, but the entire duration (including getting there early to make sure things were setup). On the day of our wedding, she was at our venue before 9am and didn’t leave until the last guests left around 3:30am (despite us telling her to go to bed and we’ll handle our stragglers!).
I cannot explain how incredible our wedding weekend was and it was all made possible thanks to Victoria. She thinks of everything, she’s 3 steps ahead of you and will make your wedding simply perfect. The best decision you can make, ismaking her your wedding planner.

Absolutely fantastic. Don't look any further!
I messaged Victoria with less than 1 weeks' notice to tell her we were traveling to Italy from the UK. She worked with the one day we had available and organised us viewings. Although Victoria knew she would not be able to plan our wedding, and therefore would not get our business (as she had another wedding in the diary for our preferred date), she still went out of her way to help us! She met us at our dream venue (which we've now booked) and spent a full 90 minutes walking us round. All of the vendors and staff at Castello Monaci knew exactly who Victoria was and seemed genuinely pleased to see her so if you're looking for somebody well connected - look no further!Sent on 02/04/2019

Beyond perfect: Victoria is a dream to work with & an absolute hero planner. She was the best decision we made for our whole wedding!
We honestly cannot recommend Victoria highly enough: our wedding was the best weekend of our lives and she played a huge role in every aspect of it. We never could have pulled it off without her even if we’d had years to plan it.Sent on 09/11/2019
Victoria helped us with everything from day one: booking her was the first decision we made (after deciding to get married!) and it was definitely the best decision we made. She understood what we wanted, suggested vendors who were perfectly suited to our tastes, shared her insider knowledge and approached everything with an incredible spirit of warmth, patience, professionalism and calm.
Living in the UK meant having someone we could trust to run things for us in Puglia was even more important. Victoria arranged all the accommodation options for our guest not staying in the Masseria; she booked all the transport for them; helped people book hairdresser and barber’s appointments; suggested restaurants... honestly nothing was too much trouble.
We had regular calls with her in the lead up to everything and she also accompanied us on our tasting visit in Puglia which was so helpful. Over the wedding weekend itself, she was on hand for anything and everything and had every little detail covered. Victoria also acted as celebrant for our service and did a perfect job in what was a very personal and emotional service. She was with us from first thing in the morning of the wedding day until the last guests had left about 20 or so hours later. Having her there meant we did not have to worry about a thing and made the whole wedding journey - from the first stages of planning to hitting the dance floor - smooth, stress-free and an absolute joy.
On a personal note, as a bride, I found Victoria a hugely calming presence; honestly a calm look or a big hug from her was so reassuring whenever any nerves or worries arose. All our guests also said how awesome she is to us, and without exception every other vendor we worked with on the wedding told us how much they love working with her. She feels like part of our family now and we honestly cannot recommend her enough. Just book her, it will be the best decision you make!
