We got married on the 23rd of September 2017 in Stresa, Lake Maggiore. It was perfection from start to finish thanks to Valentina and Ernesto!
We first met with Valentina and Ernesto in October 2016 to begin planning our wedding, from the very start it was clear that their knowledge of the area, and expertise was second to none. They are very friendly and warm people and they made the entire experience highly enjoyable. They are both very responsive to emails and organise skype conversations frequently. Valentina was fantastic at conveying my thoughts and ideas to vendors, and completely understood my vision for the wedding.
There was no stress whatsoever in the lead up to the wedding, we knew Valentina and Ernesto had everything under control. On the day of the wedding they made sure everything ran smoothly, every last detail was perfect. Our guests said it was not only the best wedding that had ever been to, but one of the best weekends they ever had!
We cannot thank Valentina and Ernesto enough for creating our perfect day.

We can not thank Ernesto and Valentina enough for all there help and hard work during the planning and on the wedding day.
Thank you guys!! it has been great being part of your big day!! Thanks for your lovely words!! xx
Wow what can I say!? Valentina and Ernesto made out dream wedding come true! From the overall feel we wanted to the tiny little details, nothing was too much trouble. Valentina put my wedding worries to rest and Ernesto even came to meet us for a coffee when we were out in Italy before the event. When we look back the whole day just a feels like a beautiful dream and still can’t beleive how perfect it was. We can’t recommend Valentina and Ernesto highly enough and will be forever grateful to them for making our dream wedding a reality. All of our love, Lauren and Adam
Hi Lauren thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure working and sharing your day with you. Your happiness is the best reward and anytime you will get back to Italy we will be happy to spend some time together again!! Thank you grazie so much!! xx
Great knowledge of local vendors and happy to liaise on our behalf with suppliers
Useful translation skills and always available on whatsapp
Professional and organised
Alessandra was great! We loved all the vendors she organized. She had a vision for our wedding from the start and fulfilled it. We could never have organized our wedding as well as she did. It was so helpful to have someone who knew the town, knew the language, and knew the vendors - she looked out for us all along the way!
Sara & Kat are fantastic! They helped us every step of the way and Sara was always on hand to answer my many questions and she made the entire planning process as stress free as it can be! Our wedding day was even better that we could have wished for and we are so grateful to Sara & Kat for all of their help!
I am based in New York and one of the toughest decisions was trying to find an overseas planner for a wedding in Lake Como. Alessandra and her team were FLAWLESS. They completely took away anxiety and made the entire process very easy for us. On the day of the wedding, hair and makeup arrived promptly and created a look for me that completely matched the photos I sent and what I was looking for. The photographer she booked took editorial, magazine quality photos. Our officiant put together a beautiful reading and ceremony... all of this without meeting any of the vendors or vetting them beforehand. Alessandra handled everything and put the most beautiful day together that we could have hoped for. I cannot say enough about her and the beautiful program she created. If you are looking for a wedding in Italy or on the lakes, her company is hands down the company that MUST be used. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended for your once in a lifetime experience.
We have been lucky to meet Valentina and Ernesto. They have so well taken care of us and so well organized our intimate wedding ın Barbaresco ! Nothing went wrong and all their advices, for example the site of the wedding, the hotel we stayed, etc. You can trust them faithfully. Hope we'll keep in touch !
Hi Anne, thanks so much for your kind words! It has been a pleasure being part of this special event in the countryside! Spending the day with you was great for us and we are very pleased you had your best day! A big hug to all of you! xx Valentina
Alessandra assisted us with our elopement on the beautiful Lake Como. Coming from Australia, we relied on Alessandra completely for everything. The day before our wedding, there was a storm causing damage to roads, so last minute changes had to be made. Again, Alessandra made everything go smoothly and stress-free - just how we had wanted and imagined our day to be. I cannot thank and recommend Alessandra enough!
Where do we start. Valentina and Ernesto were the ultimate professionals. From the very first day when we started planning our dream wedding, they delivered. Being Irish, living in Western Australia we knew that we needed people we could trust to make our dream a reality, and they certainly did that. Every detail was considered, options provided, changes made to accommodate our needs, we could not ask for more. On the day of the wedding it was just incredible to have a team of professionals working in the background to ensure everything went to plan. We were informed throughout and they managed the flow of they say to perfection. We could not ask for any more of these two. Thank you for everything.
Hi Eimear and Micheal, thanks so much for your words! It was a great day for us us too! Very honored to be part of this thanks for sharing it with us. We had a great time with your wonderful big fun group and on the day you were just great! Thanks for choosing us and for your review! Come back to Italy soon!!! big hug!! xx
Valentina + Ernesto
Valentina and Ernesto from Italian Wedding Company made our planning process so simple! Since we are in the United States, taking on planning a wedding in Italy was no easy task! From legal documents to language barriers to tiny, tiny details - we literally had nothing to worry about with Valentina and Ernesto taking care of it all. Their assistance with vendors made our day exactly as we wanted it - and they were all top notch! We communicated regularly and both really listened to what was important to us as a couple. They made our day effortless and were so pleasant to work with - we now consider them friends and would recommend them highly to anyone planning a wedding in Italy!
Thanks Lisa so much for your lovely words and stunning photos! Planning your intimate wedding on Lake Orta was a pleasure and we were honored to be part of your you intimate celebrations on the day. You have been so kind and sweet and we feel we already miss you guys! Thanks for choosing us and Lake Orta for your day and come back soon we will wait for you! Ciao dall'Italia! xx
My husband and I are a Canadian couple, that always dreamed of having our wedding in Venice, Italy. However the process seemed quite daunting, that is until we came across the Italian Wedding Company. With the help of Katiuscia, we were able to elope and have a perfect day, She assisted with not only finding a wonderful photographer, florist and hair and makeup artist - but also with all of the paperwork. If this is the kind of wedding you are interested in, and we highly recommend it, than the Italian Wedding Company will help to make all your dreams come true!
Hi Meghan and Ryan, I'm so happy you enjoyed every moment of your special day. Thank you for your kind words!!! Kat
They were absolutely wonderful to work with and made our wedding day even better than we had imagined! The idea of planning a wedding abroad made me nervous initially, but after the first phone call and interaction - I could tell that they were organized, professional and understood how to get the best value while still realizing our goals for our wedding day. I highly highly highly recommmend them!
Thank you so much Simi! We loved planning your wedding and spending a wonderful day together with you and your lovely friends and family.
It was very important for us to make this day really special for you all.
Lot of love from beautiful Lake Como!
Thank you so very much for my fairytale wedding ... and making it all come true! Your services and guidance really made this the most special day of our lives. I would highly recommend your services to everyone!
Thank you Belinda for your review and these beautiful pictures.
They are a wonderful memory for us too!
It was such a pleasure to work with you and feel you trusted us on each step of the wedding planning.
I wish you all the best and I hope we will meet again!
Valentina and Ernesto are not only the best wedding planners, but they are also one of the most caring and loving people that me and my husband have met in our entire lives. Valentina is everything you want in a wedding planner. She is extremely organized, she is understating with EVERYTHING, she is very very sweet, she accommodates anything that you wish, she tries very hard to give you the wedding of your dreams, she answers emails EVERY DAY, she answers the thousand questions that you may have about any little issue while still being the sweetest and nicest person in the world. Valentina made the most special day of my life the best. She also made the whole process very stress free and very enjoyable. Everyone thinks weddings are stressful, but Valentina made the whole process so pleasant that I was able to enjoy the wedding planning. She accommodated everything within our tight budget while giving us multiple choices of vendors. When I told her that I could not afford something she immediately was able to find solutions to find similar options with the similar quality, so I could have the wedding that I dreamt of. She was the one who made the happiest day of my life possible. If you want to have a perfect wedding day and an enjoyable and flawless planning process I would recommend Valentina without a doubt. You will never forget your wedding, and you will never forget the amazing help that Valentina will give you in making your happiest day possible.
Ciao Mariana, thanks so much for your wonderful words! We really got moved when we read all. I really do not know what to say but that you are wonderful people yourselves and it was a real pleasure meeting you and being part of your special day in Italy. Anytime you will get back to Italy we will be here for you to meet and spend some time together!
Ciao thanks gracias grazie!! a big hug to all of you!!
Valentina + Ernesto
We got married at the Relais La Sommita in the city of Ostuni, in Puglia and it was perfect.
Although we only communicated with Emanuela by email and Whatsapp it was all so easy. The Wedding Company organised everything. They are so professional. I cannot recommend Emanuela and Michela highly enough.
We wanted a very small and intimate wedding as it was only the two of us. Emanuela understood this completely. She listened to everything I said and organised the most beautiful wedding for us.
Emanuela worked closely with the wonderful staff at the beautiful Relais La Sommita to create the most special day. The dinner in the evening on the terrace was simply magical, looking out over the breath taking views of the city and beyond. And the food was absolutely exquisite.
To Emanuela and Michela thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so special.
AMAZING!! simply amazing service. I contacted the Italian wedding company two weeks before I decided that I wanted to have my wedding pictures taken in Italy. Everything was last minute and my heart was set on Villa de Balboanello in Como but I didn't know anyone or anything about Italy. I tried to contact some photographers and everyone told me to forget it as i needed to book one year in advance and i found it so difficult to arrange anything. I lost hope and just sent a last message to the company just so i see what they say. To my surprise , IWC were extremely prompt in their reply. Alessandra who i was dealing with sent me a full plan the next day and it was PERFECT! I couldn't believe how easy they made the process. and she understood exactly what I needed. The planning included hair and makeup , flower bouquet , a professional photographer, the locations , a boat and even recommendation on where to stay. She set a plan and everything went perfectly and i couldn't have asked for a more professional and amazing team to surround me on my special day. She was easy to communicate with, extremely friendly and always reachable. I truly recommend them to anyone planning to wed in Italy.
Our Journey with Valentina and Ernesto started just over a year ago and I can honestly say it has been the best year of our lives so far. From the first email with Valentina she was so welcoming and knew exactly what we wanted to create. We met them both in Orta to check out various venue options and they could not have made us feel more welcome. There was no rush to our meeting and no detail or option missed for us to see. They even helped arranged lunches and boat trips for the rest of our stay.
We fell in love with Orta as well as Valentina and Ernesto and knew they were the perfect couple to help us make our dream wedding come true. Once the date was set they were on hand 24/7 no request was too much, and believe me I pestered them and changed my mind A LOT. Without them I doubt we would have even managed to book the church. So many people think a wedding planner just makes the day look pretty but this couple do far far more! From helping with the legal paperwork/ arranging our local priest to marry us/ food/ wine/ flowers/ music/ ice-cream/ transport and most importantly fitting everything we wanted to our budget.
They are not just a business but are personal in the event. The morning of my wedding everything was planned and ready to go but the one thing we couldn’t control was the weather… Can you believe we spent the week in Orta with no rain but LUCKY ME the heavens opened on the 9th. Valentina came up to my room in the morning, gave me the biggest, warmest hug and said ‘Wet Bride’ ‘Lucky Bride’. I laughed and knew that it was all in hand and our day would still be perfect. So we made a few small changes like a car up the hill to the church and a white umbrella appeared from no-where but I can honestly say myself, husband and all of our guests still had the best day and this was all thanks to our amazing wedding planners. All the vendors recommended to us were spot on! I cannot recommend this amazing couple enough and want to thank them again!
Oh Hannha, You made me cry, I'm so moved!
Your words come from your big heart and they are incredibly sweet.
Thanks so much for writing this lovely text and adding your photos. You are a star and you really made my day!
Working with you was really the best!!! I wish I would have all brides like you but this is impossible because Hannah is Hannah! :-)

Thanks again for choosing us!! You will be always welcome in Italy! Ciao! Valentina, Ernesto and Silvia
Michela did a fantastic job - she gave the best advice, was so proactive, professional and helpful and overall was wonderful to work with. She helped us plan our dream wedding...we don't know what we would have done without her! The BEST wedding planner!! The saddest part of our wedding being over is not being able to talk to her every day :-)
Michela ha fatto un lavoro fantastico. Una wedding planner dinamica, professionista e alla mano, ci ha sempre dato ottimi consigli ed è stato un vero piacere lavorare con lei. Grazie a lei abbiamo avuto il matrimonio dei nostri sogni...non ce l'avremmo fatta senza di lei! La MIGLIORE wedding planner!! Ci dispiace che il matrimonio è passato principalmente perché non la sentiamo più tutti i giorni :-)
Alexandra, Veronica, and Barbara were amazing. They were very responsive to questions and requests. I was able to have a very beautiful wedding on Lake Como for my budget with everything I wanted!
The best decision to choose Italian Wedding Company as our wedding planners - Ernesto, Valentina and Silvia were fantastic to work with. We had our wedding on Lake Orta, which was suggested to us by the Italian Wedding Company - and what a beautiful location, a great suggestion! Valentina had many great ideas and contacts, Silvia was present on our wedding day and did a wonderful job ( very friendly, approachable and professional) and Ernesto helped us out a lot with the paperwork (which we had some issues with!)! All of those involved with our wedding day did an amazing job and all were suggested by Valentina and Ernesto. Our day was truly magical and we couldn't have done without the Italian Wedding Company! Thank you so much for an unforgettable day!
Hi Emma, thanks for your lovely words and thanks for choosing us. Planning your wedding was a lovely experience. All of us had a great time with you and we will remember you all with lot of emotions. Thanks again and we are incredibly happy you had the day of your life as you wanted! Much love and you will be welcome anytime in Italy and Lake Orta! xx
Valentina and Ernesto helped us to organise a beautifully sunny small family wedding at Lake Orta. The photographer, Enrico Mocci, has captured the wonderful elements that made the day wonderful. The venue (Orta Town Hall), the wonderful flowers, the delicious meal at Ustaria Cal da Rat and having all of our family there, relaxed and happy as everything had been organised so well in advance, made for a memorable day.
Valentina & Ernesto were amazing. I cannot recommend them enough. We married in Orta in July 2017. Everything was perfect. Valentina is so good at what she does. We had small wedding of about 30 people. I wanted it to be relaxed fun and without fuss. I was busy in the months before and so i didn't have time to spend much time on the wedding planning. I didn't have to worry Valentina made sure everything was perfect. We had a beautiful evening in L'ustaria ca da rat. The food was excellent, even better than the tasting! The flowers were amazing and the quartet she chose were really good. If you want an Italian wedding look no further then Valentina and Ernesto!
Ciao Laura, thanks so much for your lovely words and for sharing your special day with us. It has been a pleasure working with and for you and you will be always welcome on Lake Orta! We had a fantastic time too with you thanks for your words and thoughts and for choosing us!
