Michela & Michela were a pleasure to work with. I have just got married at Castello Monaci in Salice Salentino. I cannot recommend this venue enough, it is a stunning fairytale venue. Offering amazing food & wine and all of our guest said it was the best wedding they have been too! I loved everything and every second of our special day, it was perfect. I found it very helpful to meet the wedding planner a few times before the wedding so you can run through your requirements ahead of time. Overall if I could do it all over again I would, a day magical day I will remember forever.Sent on 06/23/2016

We really can't praise and recommend Valentina and Ernesto of the Italian Wedding Company highly enough. They made our wedding day absolutely perfect. They took care of everything so that all we had to do was relax and enjoy the day, it took all of the stress away. It was great to know that whilst doing all this remotely by email, we were in such great hands with all of the recommendations that were made, they know the area and all the best suppliers so well. The service was really personal, with just the two of us on the day, having Valentina and Ernesto present was like spending the day with friends.Sent on 05/28/2016
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Thank you Graeme and Elaine for such wonderful words. We can say the same....working with and for you was a real pleasure and we really felt among friends too. Just simply great! We loved meeting you and thanks for choosing us. See you soon we hope! Anytime you are more than welcome in Italy! Valentina + Ernesto xx

Our advice to any couple looking to hire a wedding planner is to research a list of questions to ask wedding planners before you meet so you can narrow down if your style matches that of the wedding planner's. Next step is to contact Italian Wedding Company and get started! Stefania was our wedding planner and we couldn't have asked for a more professional, caring and passionate wedding planner to work with!Sent on 06/22/2016
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Dear Anna, thank you for the sweet words!! With you and Luca everything has been easy for me, you have been gentle, clever and sweet! A real joy to work for you!

Kat was our wedding planner for our two day wedding event in Lago di Garda, a civil ceremony in Gardone Riviera and a symbolic ceremony on Isola del Garda.Sent on 12/08/2015
Kat and her team (Sara and Sara) exceeded every expectation that we had and from start to finish, the entire wedding was flawless. On each day, a member of her team was with us from beginning to end (until the last person was dropped off) to oversee the entire operation and make sure everything was going smoothly. If there was every a problem, we did not see or experience it and many of our guests were amazed with the experience.
Every vendor that Kat referred (ie. musicians, flowers, restaurants, boats, etc) were top quality and enhanced the entire experience.
In general, one sometimes hears about the stress of planning a wedding and dealing with surprises on the day of. In our case, there was zero stress and no bad surprises... only GREAT surprises that we got to experience along with our guests.
All in all, Kat was flawless in her execution and we would not hesitate to recommend her to every couple looking to get married in Italy. She organized a beautiful wedding that we will cherish forever and for that we are forever grateful.
Kirsty · Married on 09/27/2015
Very professional but also very friendly and helpful. Very responsive even if just to let you know that they are still awaiting a response from a third party- some of whom took a while to provide details but at least you felt that they were being chased up. We had a small wedding of 37 people and a welcome dinner the evening before- both were perfect, we couldn't have asked for more! Thank you Veronica and colleagues.Sent on 05/30/2016
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Thank you Kirsty! It was lovely to meet you and spent two wonderful days with you. I am so happy everything was exactly as you wanted. Thank you again! I wish you all the best! Veronica

Valentina and Ernesto provided a very professional and friendly service. They were always available during the lead up to the wedding to advise us or answer any of our queries.

Senza ombra di dubbio, l'ottima riuscita della nostro matrimonio è merito della nostra wedding planner: Michela Savino. Creatività, professionalità e precisione. Prima della cerimonia è stata certosina nella pianificazione di tutto, durante i festeggiamenti è stata invisibile nel coordinare tutti i professionisti in campo. Sicuramente farsi aiutare e coordinare da una professionista, è stata una scelta vincente. Ci ha portati alla giornata del nostro matriomonio semplicemente rilassati e pronti. Consigliamo a tutti il genio e la professionalità di Michela Savino.Sent on 10/11/2015

We chose Italian Wedding Company to make our dream of getting married in beautiful Lake Garda a reality.Sent on 08/23/2015
We met our lead planner Katiuscia for an initial consultation in November 2014. In a one day tour of various locations around Lake Garda our minds were made up. We were offered a range of beautiful locations at various prices, and came away from a short weekend trip with a clear vision of our big day.
In the following six months our day was planned to perfection via email. The ease of this was incredible. Katiuscia and Giulia never took longer than a day to respond to any queries, whilst they offered clear and concise options for all the minor details of our day. We were provided at least three good options for all our decisions on the day i.e, hair and make up, flowers, meal, photographer etc. Without having seen or met any of these people/ choices, absolutely all of them turned fantastic on the wedding day. It was really reassuring and satisfying to know the very high quality our wedding planners promised, came through on our day.
The Wedding day itself was absolutely seamless. Our two planners on the day Giulia and Sara were an absolute joy, and a pleasure to have throughout the day. Both spoke fluent English, and were a constant source of support, making sure the day ran perfectly. At no stage was any aspect rushed and the day really was timed exquisitely. We met our priest for the first time on our wedding day, Father Dominic. We had email exchanges with him to confirm the music and mass content, however it could not have prepared us for his fantastic bubbly nature. He spoke fantastic English from years of study in the States, and preached in a relaxed and captivating way. He even joined us at our meal later, entertaining many with fantastic stories throughout.
Finally, considering wedding day logistics. Our 40+ guests were transported smoothly, comfortably and efficiently via bus/ boat from various locations around the lake.

I had Katiuscia and Giulia planning my wedding and sorting everything out for me and I couldn't have asked for anyone better as they were there for me and my husband every step of the way with any concerns, sorting things out, decision making and even supporting us when feeling stressed. They are both genuinely lovely women who I would love to stay in contact with.Sent on 08/30/2015
They made our wedding day a dream come true and I wouldn't have changed a thing, they really put our feeling first and made sure we were happy.
Giulia stayed with us through the wedding day and evening she was amazing you wouldn't have even known she was there sorting every little detail out, she would come over to check we were happy or needed anything she was just fabulous.
Thank you both jade and Chris xxxxx

Every guest commented on how well organised it was and how smoothly it run, in fact every guest said it was by far the best wedding they had been to. All thanks to Valentina & Ernesto!
Every detail was exactly as I had asked and I am definitely pleased I chose Italian Wedding Co to organise my wedding.

Valentina and Ernesto were an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional, reliable, and helpful. They took all the stress out of planning for our wedding but kept us completely in the loop with each step.

Claire · Married on 07/09/2015
I can highly recommend Valentina and Ernesto from the Italian Wedding Company. From our initial enquiry to them to the day of our wedding they were so efficient and organised whilst also being a calming influence particularly on the day of the wedding. They responded quickly to any questions or enquiries we had. When we met them for the first time in Orta we knew we had made the right decision choosing them as our wedding planners. They are warm and friendly and within a very short period of time they are like old friends. It is evident they are so highly thought of by the vendors who work with them and the locals in Orta as so many people stop to talk to them.Sent on 09/23/2015
They guided us through the legal process of getting married in Italy with ease. Every suggestion they made or vendor they recommended was amazing. Every little detail was taken care of. They even went so far as to organise a pre wedding dinner for 70 of our guests and transport from the airport for our 95 guests. Our wedding day totally exceeded our hopes and dreams. All our guests commented it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Thank you Valentina and Ernesto! x
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Thank you so very much Claire for your lovely words! Working with you was lovely and fun! We had a great time and we feel like we have some new friends over there too! You will be welcome anytime you want to come over again in Orta! Thank you much love and congratulations again! xx

Selina · Married on 06/22/2015
We were recently married on Lake Orta, Italy and went through Valentina and Ernesto at Italian Lakes Wedding as our wedding planners. I truly cannot recommend them highly enough for their invaluable advice, recommendations, professionalism and creativity throughout our wedding planning journey.Sent on 07/02/2015
They ensured the entire experience was completely stress free from start to finish (no easy feat when choosing to get married abroad): by recommending and securing suitable vendors; managing deposits and final payments; advising on décor, music, food etc; assisting with the legal requirements; and managing the logistics of accommodation and transfers for our 61 guests.
They created the wedding of our dreams by listening to our requirements and taking the time to understand our overall vision for the day. We could not have been happier with the final result and our Guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed, not just the wedding, but the entire experience.
Thank you so much Valentina and Ernesto.
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Hi Selina, thank you so much for your wonderful words! Working with and for you was a real pleasure and on the day of the wedding we had the chance to have fun too and meet a wonderful group! We are so happy you loved everything and that you will keep always a special memory of your day! Much love to you all!!! thanks! Valentina and Ernesto

The day of the wedding she made us less stressed and relieved and she really took care of everything letting us enjoy the day like we should!

Emma · Married on 06/06/2015
When we started to plan our wedding a year ago, we decided that Italy was the place for us. After a little research, I came across the Italian Wedding Company and we were very impressed by the reviews and blogs that were associated with them. From the very first contact we were made to feel special, both were supportive and kind throughout our year of planning.Sent on 06/30/2015
Both me and my husband cannot thank Valentina and Ernesto enough for making sure that our wedding day was perfect. The day exceeded our expectations, which is something quite rare for Brides who might be as picky as me.
We would 100% recommend!!

You are a wonderful sweet couple and a great group! We thank you so much again and we really hope you come back soon in Piemonte countryside!!! ciao!
Vanessa · Married on 06/06/2015
Veronica Frasca was our main wedding planner from start to finish and we are over-the-moon with how our wedding unfolded! She was professional, personable, flexible, creative, and attentive. We had very high expectations for a dream wedding of elegance and romance with our immediate families on Lake Como and Veronica delivered exactly that and more. We will cherish that weekend forever and continue to replay the day of our wedding over and over again! I was so incredibly calm the day of the wedding and can say with certainty that I enjoyed every single moment of our wedding as I had confidence that our dream day was in excellent hands! We had the pleasure of meeting Rosanna when we arrived and she was a pleasure to work with as well. She was equally as professional and attentive and assisted immensely to ensure our wedding day went off without a hitch! Thank you both!Sent on 07/09/2015
Nellie · Married on 05/19/2015
Our wedding would not have been so effortless if it were not for Veronica and her associates knowledge and sincerity. They truly did everything in their power to perfect our big day for us, from the details in decorations to the venue and reception, I have no complaints- only immense appreciation. If you're looking for someone who listens to your ideas and exceeds your expectations, Veronica is the planner for you. We can't thank her enough. Our appreciation for your kind heart and expertise is endless. Thank you!!Sent on 05/27/2015
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Dear Nellie, thank you for your kind words!!!

I wish you all the best!! Veronica
Jocelyn · Married on 05/09/2015
Valentina and Ernesto did an excellent job at planning our wedding, especially given the relatively short time period - only 6 months. Their suggestions were valuable and from the first moment we met them, we really felt like we were in good hands - they clearly know everything there is to know about organizing a wedding in piedmont. All suppliers that we hired through them were professional and had great reputations. They even managed to organize a silent disco even though that had never been done before and required special permits in the village, showing their flexibility and willingness to deliver a service that goes above and beyond all expectations. I can highly recommend hiring Valentina and Ernesto to make your dream wedding come true!Sent on 06/26/2015
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Ciao Jocelyn, thank you so much for your kind words and for choosing us. Working with you was special and we were pleased to meet you and all your guests. We are happy you had the best party....and we had fun too! Thanks and congratulations guys you are great! xx

Absolutely wonderful company and staff. We booked our wedding through the Italian Wedding Company and couldn't have asked for a better day.Sent on 06/06/2015
Being based in London we couldn't keep popping to Italy to review hotels or food, but we never felt that we needed to with the Italian Wedding Company, we trusted them completely to provide us with what we needed, and it was better than we could have dreamt it.
Everything from the harpist, the hotel, the service and the reception was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for more. Our guests even commented that our wedding was like something out of a fairytale, and we feel incredibly blessed to have had such an amazing wedding. Thank you Italian Wedding Company :)
Italian Wedding Company's reply:Dear Katrina, thank you so much for your kind review. It was lovely to work with you planning your wedding and I am really glad you and your guests enjoyed so much your special day. This is our target and the greatest satisfaction for our team!

Great approach and professionalism in regards of all the requests we made.Sent on 10/08/2015
Very good English, high knowledge of the documents required and all other administrative aspects that need to be taken into account if you get married in Italy. Lots of variety and their ability to explore new opportunities for a very exclusive wedding.
Need a special comment the human dimension of the service they have provided to us: very caring and lots of attention given to our very specific desires and, above all, in making us feeling in good hands.
The can-do attitude was an added value that we will always remember. We would definitively recommend you to our best friends!
Thank you again.
