All Of My Fears Swept Away...
Planning a wedding is already such an anxious, emotional and stressful time... now try planning a destination wedding in Rome, Italy...a civil one at that...aaagghhh it sounded so good in my head haha!! And with Svetlana, it truly was a dream come true. After contacting a few planners, I chose Svetlana because not only did she seem to have all the answers but she got right to business. She had a budget set for us, gave me a timeline of exactly how the day would go, had choices of amazing photographers at our disposal to choose from and COMMUNICATION: I was so worried about being in the U.S. and how efficient e-mail would be but I shouldnt have worried... almost every day there were emails with updates/planning and she also gave her whatsapp handle for times she wasn't in her office. We had so much paperwork to do in our country and she guided us step by step and never made us feel like we were asking too many questions or being a bother. If you are getting married in Italy, I highly recommend Svetlana...I almost wish I could do it all over again but the memories will last forever... Thank you to Svetlana and also to our wonderful photographer!!!! Our heart is in Rome...Sent on 09/09/2019

Our wedding experience on lake Como couldn't be better!
First of all, I would like to thank Svetlana for her professionalism and being just good and pleasant person.
When I thought about holding a wedding before, I imagined something like plenty of sleepless nights and a lot of stress.
But Svetlana and whole team managed to do their best and to make our wedding preparations easy and pleasant, and it has to be pleasant if you are having such a great event. Svetlana and her team made everything just according to our taste and wishes, and i never had to ask questions several times. Moreover, at the wedding day, she was there to control the process and help us, and everything was right in time.
Though our wedding was not very big, the team managed to pay all the attention to small details, and Svetlana's proposals on how better to organize everything were really fantastic. I'm was very lucky to meet such a professional team, who managed to leave only good memories about wedding and it's organization.Sent on 09/19/2018

Lakeside Wedding in Castel Gandolfo, Italy
Svetlana and her team were an absolute dream to work with. I was engaged at the end of January, and decided to marry in Italy in early September. I would not have been able to pull together my dream Italian wedding without Svetlana. She guided me through the whole process and gave me options based on the vision/feel I had communicated to her. I really felt that every step and suggestion was tailored to what I was envisioning. Any time I had a concern or wasn't in love with something, she sent pictures and options for me to review. At the start of the process I thought I'd only be able to have a small and simple event, but Svetlana was able to put together a wedding that was beyond my wildest Pinterest dreams. She truly understood the rustic and romantic vibe that I wanted. There were beautiful flowers everywhere, twinkly lights covered the reception space, and the food was fantastic. Her team was so incredible to work with. The day of the wedding, I did not have to worry about a single detail. Everything came together better than I ever could have imagined, and all I had to do was relax and enjoy the day. My husband was also greatly appreciative of Svetlana and her team. I think that is mostly due to the fact that it absolved him of most wedding planning responsibilities, and because I was so thrilled with how everything turned out. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Svetlana, her team, and my entire experience with them. Every vendor they connected me with was equally amazing. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is dreaming of a beautiful wedding in Italy. They made all of my wedding dreams come true, and then some!Sent on 10/16/2018

Wedding in Venice
This summer we had a wonderful event in Venice. It was really exciting unforgettable experience not only for us, but also for our guests. We were very satisfied with the high level of organization by "My Italy And My Wedding" agency ("Glesus") held by Svetlana Krasnova. We had two days: the official day and after-party day. Svetlana focused on every detail: various activities, logistics, decorations, meal, music etc. Everything was great and we recommend her and her agency to everybody who wants to wed in Italy!Sent on 12/02/2018

Nothing we can say could translate the gratitude we have for Svetlana and her team! We really had the most incredible day in our lives. Starting from absolutely stunning locations, a memorable civil and church ceremony, absolutely delicious food and wine, a great band, the floral arrangements, photographer and video, make-up, car and so on - Svetlana guided us step by step to our dream wedding which exceeded our expectations by far. She works with the best vendors and makes sure that everything is simply perfect. During the planning phase, she was always available, very flexible and professional and we always had the feeling that we were in the best of hands. Planning a wedding raises so many questions and concerns - Svetlana addressed all of them and found a solution for all of our wishes. Her coordination and behind the scenes work of the wedding day itself was simply perfect. All of our guests were simply amazed by the event and the feedback we received and keep on receiving is overwhelming. Thank you so much to Svetlana and the 'My Italy and My Wedding' Team!Sent on 08/04/2018

We found Svetlana and her team online as we were looking to plan a wedding abroad in Italy. We contacted her and got an immediate response. We were extremely happy with the service provided and how hands on Svetlana and her team were. She would respond to every single message promptly and in a professional manner. We would truly recommend my italy and my wedding as our wedding was beautiful and we got to have it exactly how we wanted it and Svetlana and her team made it happen for us!

Svetlana and her team were great! We were organising our wedding from overseas and due to work and other travel arrangements did not have a chance to visit Rome or any of the wedding venues prior to the wedding week. My Italy and My Wedding walked us through every step of the process: from legal aspects of getting married in Italy to selecting the perfect venue for the ceremony to choosing just the right place for the reception dinner. They were patiently sending us photos of the details we wanted to see (since we couldn't visit ourselves) and doing everything in their power to reassure us that our wedding day would live up to our expectations. As with any wedding preparations we of course hit a couple of bumps in the road and My Italy and My Wedding advised on where to compromise and where to keep on pushing. They were also of great help in making suggestions about how to entertain our guests for the weekend. We would highly recommend My Italy and My Wedding.Sent on 06/29/2017

After struggling to find a wedding planner that could accommodate our dream of marrying in Rome, we came across Svetlana's website and made an enquiry. From her first email to us, we knew we were finally going to be able to have our wedding when and where we wanted it. We wanted to marry fairly quickly (3 months to plan!) and Svetlana was so positive and accommodating to our requests.Sent on 10/30/2016
As a bride, I never really had my perfect day planned out so was open to suggestions along the way. Svetlana was great at offering us different options which meant that our special day evolved into something even more special.
On the morning of the wedding I had the pleasure of Anna doing my hair and makeup... I had sent some images but was flexible with this and the outcome was even better than I imagined!!
The ceremony venue was truly stunning and we were so pleased to have been married there.
We were extremely impressed with the way in which Svetlana and her team made all of guests feel . They loved the guided bus tour Svetlana suggested whilst we were away having our photos taken by Francesco who was very patient with us! Then onto the reception and we have never eaten so much food in our lives!! We could not believe how much food and wine kept being brought out so it was definitely great value for money! We also had a duet playing music while we ate and provided entertainment for us to dance...they were also fantastic!
There literally is nothing we would have changed to make our special day more perfect. Even some of guests have commented to us that it has been the best wedding they have attended which speaks volumes for the organisation of the day and attention to detail.
From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank Svetlana and her team for making our day the best of our lives.
Love Jayne and Ben xxx

I found My Italy My Wedding through an Internet search. Me and my husband had enquired with several wedding planners however none of them were as responsive and efficient as Svetlana and Charis. As soon as I left some details of what it is we were looking for, I received a call from Charis. From the outset they were honest and upfront about everything and never gave us any false impressions - something which we had experienced with other planners. Neither Svetlana or Charis had ever organised an Indian wedding before, however they didn't let this effect the standard of service they delivered. Despite not knowing a lot about Indian traditions, they made our wedding day beyond magical. Everything was just as we wanted it, all the details were taken into consideration and above all they were both just very friendly and approachable throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend My Italy My Wedding to anyone who wants to tie the knot in Italy. Svetlana and her team have extensive knowledge on various venues, caterers, florists - also a list of videographers and photographers they work closely with. There was nothing that they couldn't do. I sent them several images when planning the wedding, and on the day they managed to create the exact vision of what we wanted. They were professional throughout it all but at the same time they took the time to get to know our family and spend time with them. Although they started of as our wedding planners, we would consider them no less than friends and hope to remain in touch with them for years to come. Thank you so much to both of you and to the rest of your team for giving us a day we will never forget. Almost a month on and our family and friends still can't stop talking about it!Sent on 10/04/2016

My husband and I can't thank My Italy and My Wedding enough for putting things together and making our overseas Italian wedding possible! Thank you Svetlana right from the initial stage especially with all the emails back and forth and being so accommodating with our churches suggestions. There were even though small hiccups but she manage to pull things off and fix it right away. Svetlana even went extra miles that she and her team manage to "block off" the crowds/tourists during our wedding ceremony to ensure there was no disturbance as our church is one of the touristic spots in Florence.Sent on 09/17/2016
We will definitely recommend her service to friends around us whom are planning on their romantic Italian wedding. Grazie Mille!

Svetlana and her team helped us with everything from sourcing our wedding venue, to finding a baker for our cake! She was helpful, friendly, bursting with great ideas and very flexible with our last minute additions and changes. Svetlana had a great local knowledge of the area and was very understanding of all our requests. She was very professional and we wouldn't have been able to do it without her! Thanks Svetlana for all your months of hard work!Sent on 09/01/2016

I've met Svetlana at the moment when we practically decided to drop off the idea of having marriage on Sicily. But she could offer us good package for reasonable budget. We had a real pleasure working with Svetlana who is a a very responsible, proactive and nice person. We were absolutely comfortable with her.Sent on 09/01/2016
I should mention Francesco, the photographer, a real pro. We've got an incredible photo session.
If we had to marry once again we would do it the same way.

I want to thank My Italy and My Wedding, namely Svetlana Krasnova, who organizing our wedding. My husband and I decided to have a formal wedding in a beautiful, historic city in Europe. The wedding was planned for early October, so it was important to us to find a city with warm weather that time of year. We decided on Italy - specifically, its eternal city of Rome. But we had some confusion as to which documents to provide. The first agent we found in Italy gave us the impression that they did not really know which documents were needed. And then we found the agency My Italy and My Wedding and were helped directly by the owner, Svetlana. She was always available to speak via skype and whatsap. She helped us organize the entire ceremony, from the choice of makeup and wedding flowers to the music at the ceremony to the photographer. We planned to rent apartments for our guests, while we would stay in a hotel room. My husband had originally asked the former agency to book the room at the hotel, and to our great surprise, Svetlana was able to negotiate the price to 2 times lower than what we were told it would cost at the former agency. In addition, Svetlana personally made sure that our room had a panoramic view of Rome, as we had requested. If not for Svetlana’s professionalism, we would never have received the room with such a beautiful view. On the wedding day everything was perfect, and Svetlana was always with us. After the ceremony, she coordinated our actions during the day and had a wonderful buffet organized. And a few days after the wedding she quickly had our marriage certificate legalized.Sent on 10/27/2015
Svetlana, my husband and I once again want to thank you for such a great job of preparing and holding our wedding! You helped us solve so many problems and simplify the whole paperwork procedure.

We used My Italian Wedding as we had our ceremony and reception in Nice, France but due to French legal restrictions we needed to perform the legalities in Italy. Even though based in Rome, they were very familiar with this situation and instantly recommended a location very close to the French / Italian boarder.Sent on 01/07/2015
Communication was excellent from beginning to end. We happened to be in Nice for a long weekend in the February and at short notice they arranged a viewing of the venue which turned out to be stunning. This was in Bordighera.
We had help all the way through with the paperwork requirements and using one of their connections with the Italian postal service they even helped find missing documents that got stuck in the system.
Even though we only required a basic legal service as our main ceremony and reception was in Nice later that day, they went the extra mile and made the service very special indeed and something to be remembered.
I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They know exactly what they are doing and ensure everything happens like clockwork.

Hello, dear pairs.Sent on 02/24/2015
I can leave only positive words about our wedding, which was organized by this Company:
- the organization was wonderful
- the organizer Svetlana is very professional and nice person. We received answers to our letters and questions very fast, everything was clear. During the whole day Svetlana was with us helping with everything
- this Company knows what the client wants: we discussed all services, all menus in details, music, flowers, etc. beforehand
- also very important is that this Company can find the solution for any budget
- the florist and stylist were very professional, too - flowers and bouquets were unusual and elegant; the make-up was fresh and natural
- the separate note should be regarding the photographer Franchesko - the pictures are really great - natural poses, no "special faces" - everything is very natural, beautiful and in high spirits
- all the guests remember this wedding as the best one they have ever been before.
So our impressions are wonderful! "Weddingwire" made this day the most happy for me and my husband :)

My husband and myself as well as our dear guests will never forget those amazing 2 days of our wedding planned, organized and handled by Svetlana, Glesus. Profound professionalism, utmost attention to any of our wishes on the stage of planning or needs during the wedding itself, very delicate care, sophisticated taste and as a result a wonderful event are worth the highest score that is possible. Each time when we are asked for recommendations by our associates it is our immense pleasure to provide them with the Glesus contacts as we strongly believe after having experienced it personally that Svetlana is the best in the art of wedding.Sent on 01/26/2015
