“There is little doubt that you head into the unknown when planning a wedding abroad but, if you are fortunate enough to have the support of a wedding planner like Martina, you have nothing to fear. From the very beginning Martina was keen to ensure that all our ideas were given full consideration whilst offering her own helpful suggestions and advice. Martina was inspirational, it seemed that nothing was impossible, even if some of these plans might need a little adjustment along the way.
Our introduction to Martina occurred in January 2016 and it was not long before we became very confident in the way in which she responded to e-mails, the sheer enthusiasm that she portrayed for our wedding plans and her desire to see these through to fruition. Throughout, Martina tempered the necessary practical issues of planning the wedding with comments about everyday life in our respective countries, stories about our families and all with a smattering of good humour. We feel that Martina had not become just a working partner, but a good friend.
It took ten months before we met Martina in real life and we were not surprised to find that she presented as the charming, warm, caring and highly organised person that we had 'met' on paper. Martina spent the whole of the day of our wedding ensuring that everything went according to plan. Her calming, assured manner and her attention to every detail meant that we could relax throughout the entire day. As during the previous months, she worked tirelessly to ensure that nothing was left to chance.
Martina you are a 'star', selfless in all you do - our day would have been only a shadow of what it was without you”

Thanks again for your excellent service and we loved working with you! Ciao!! Amber and Seth”
“Ciao Martina, First of all thank you for your help in organising our special day. We were very stressed at times and you dealt with this very professionally. Thank you again. Secondly we are now home and getting back to some sort of normality. We loved Italy and will be back very soon.Hope you are well. Speak soon Rob & Louise”
“Ciao Martina, We are now back home. It's so sad that it is all over, all of my family feel the same. We have all been quite full of cold too which hasn't helped and of course going back to work is never good. We have only memories now and thankfully they are the best memories. We really are so thankful for you and how amazing you made our day. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Ciao ciao. Sam”
“Martina offers a world class service & we could not have had our wedding day so perfect without her! From the day we met it felt as if we had known her for years, Martina had a great intuition for finding solutions that fit with our ideas. Her personal touch made all the difference and all our guests were very impressed on the day. Professional, organised, creative, stylish, elegant, just brilliant service! Martina went above & beyond what we expected, and we are eternally grateful for her hard work. We fell in love with Puglia, made amazing memories and true friends. Thanks Marti, Ciao!”
“Ciao Marti! It was so great meeting you and we cannot say enough about how wonderful the wedding turned out and all of your suggestions as far as restaurants and hotel. It was really everything we could have hoped for and more. Courmayeur is simply an amazing and charming town. The photographer was great and we enjoyed working with her as well. We just got back last night from our honeymoon and are quite jet legged but enjoyed our trip over there so much, we cannot wait to get back!
Thank you for everything! Emily and Hunter X”
Take care and have a wonderful summer! Baci, Mia!”

“Thank you Marti! We had a beautiful wedding in Florence and we could not have pulled it off without Marti's expertise, patience and attention to detail. The paperwork was daunting, but she was there step by step to guide us flawlessly along. Any question or concern was answered so quickly and efficiently, it was as if we were her only clients. Dan and I also had a few specific requests that she was able to to fulfill. The result was the wedding of our dreams, a fairy tale come true”
Catherine and Daniel, Wedding in Florence June 2015
“Martina was fab! We had some very specific demands and a strict budget and she helped us achieve both with some beautiful additions.
Her nudges were perfectly timed and her organisation was exceptional. Over the course of organising the wedding it became more apparent that she was having to deal with some difficult vendors, and at times we were surprised at how patient she was but she ultimately got them to fall in line and the wedding was perfect for it. We dare not even think about what it would have been like to try and deal with these organisations ourselves!Thank you Martina, it was perfect! Oli and Julia,,
Oliver and Julia, Wedding in Ischia April 2015
“Ciao Martina! How are you? We hope you are well and are not working too hard. We just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for all you have done for us, not just on our wedding day, but every day we were planning our wedding with you. We can’t tell you enough how helpful you have been and, without you, our day would not have been the same. Your professionalism was outstanding from day one and our perfect wedding went so smoothly because of your attention to detail and need for quality throughout. We were also surprised but thrilled with how much you helped to organize our honeymoon, even to the point of visiting us there to make sure we had everything we needed! We will never forget our first experiences of Italy thanks to you, that made us feel at home and welcome from day one and we thank you for that. We have now booked a December trip to Rome as we are missing Italy so much already, and we have potential plans to return to Puglia next May (fingers crossed!). Thanks again Martina, Lots of love, Cheryl and Dom xxx“.

“Hi Martina! Finally I have some time to drop you an email to thank you for all of your help with our wedding. I think it's fair to say, despite my worries and last minute panic, we couldn't have dreamed for it to be any better! Naturally everyone's wedding day is something that they will remember for life however, we think having chosen Florence made it much more memorable and a truly amazing day. We have so many amazing moments to remember! Needless to say, we can't wait to see the photographs!Thank you in particular for your advice with choosing the location. It was really magnificent and both the food and service were excellent. We truly felt our every need was catered for and look forward to returning for our anniversary next year. I think it's only now we look back, we really appreciate the work that went into planning our day and we are extremely grateful. I know at times we were tense and I'm sure not easy to deal with, but thank you for your understanding and patience. Your recommendations were really helpful from the wine to the hotels, all was perfect! And finally not forgetting your support on the day itself where we always felt you were in control whilst we wilted in the heat! And thank you so much for getting our documents legalised. It was very kind of you. Thank you so much Martina. I do hope you will keep in touch and we would be delighted to welcome you in when you are next in the UK. Thank you and our best wishes”
