I cannot praise Antonella highly enough. My now husband and I were planning our Italian wedding from London. Initially we had the help of my mother, but when she became ill we realised we needed the help of a planner. My mum had found her contact details on line and I was instantly interested in speaking to her because she can speak English as well as her native Italian. When I spoke to her, I realised that not only was she incredibly competent, she understood my vision of how we wanted our wedding to look and feel. She was a huge help throughout the whole process, from chasing suppliers, arranging paperwork, planning weekend itinerary’s. She also allowed direct payments (so we could make the most form the sterling to pound exchange rate) always backing it up with a paperwork invoice trail.
Antonella was on-hand even on the weekend’s when we visited Italy for planning and would make sure caterers, photographers etc were all ready to meet us. We emailed daily and when things got stressful, I knew I could relax a little as I had her help in Italy.
On our wedding weekend she was at the Villa the whole day before setting up and on the wedding day itself she ensured everything ran smoothly.
My husband and I had the BEST wedding and we owe a lot of that to Antonella’s help and organisational skills. She is a wonderful woman and was a great help. We can’t recommend her highly enough!

This was our biggest day and a big thank you is not enough to this fantastic working group, we were looked after and advised in the best possible way. The quality and quantity of food offered to our banquet met everyone and there is no greater satisfaction than in having a general appreciation of the guests. Undoubtedly it is one of the days that remain indelible in our hearts and that we owe it to those who helped make it so. Thank you so much, it was really a pleasure to have you as a supplier! L&J
F&D GUESTS REFERENCES:
Favourites were the food, to die for! the setting was spectacular, the whole day ran really well. We also appreciated the help with baby, the lady was really sweet and good with Laila but it would have helped if she spoke more English. But that’s a minor thing.
It was brilliant, the best wedding we have been to.
… It was incredible, well organised, beautiful and very special setting (church and reception venue), great food, flowing wine, lots of laughter and truly memorable
The most memorable moment was how well you lit the wedding venue with lights at night – stunning. The fireworks too were great.
You did a wonderful job!
Thanks again for your work,
As parents of the bride we thought the wedding just perfect! A beautiful venue and the organisation could not have been better. We appreciated the proximity of the church and being able to walk to the reception ( not too much standing around for photos outside the church). Then the welcome drinks and opportunity to talk to guests and unwind before the meal by which time it was cooler! The menu and organisation of the food was excellent as was the setting of tables etc. We were thanked by so many people with the view that it was the best wedding ever! The tidying up afterwards was also to be commended.
Thank you so much for all that you did to make it such a successful and memorable occasion.
