Victoria helped to bring to life our dream Lake Como wedding in October 2019.
We started planning from Australia 14 months beforehand, and corresponded with her exclusively via email she was very attentive with the responses (~500 emails sent between us). She gave realistic advice re costings whilst helping to create a dream wedding that fitted our budget. We didn't visit the location (although we felt like we did as Victoria visited options for us and sent us pictures & videos, including of our wedding menu tastings).
After securing a venue that met all our requirements we started with the other aspects. Victoria regularly kept us updated with time lines of when decisions needed to be made and provided shortlists of vendors to choose from, she was also very happy to research other vendors for us and obtain quotes and we were extremely happy with her management of the vendors.
Victoria also suggested a few things we hadn't thought of which ended up being some of the most memorable parts of the wedding
1. Surprise waiter who was a Tenor from La Scala in Milan
2. Uplighting which really added to the mood of the reception
3. Suggesting we hire 3 english babysitters for 6 kids aged under 4 years, which helped both kids and parents enjoy the wedding and kept the reception an adult event
We initially didn't think we needed a wedding planner despite not speaking any Italian, but quickly realised how valuable Victoria was with her advice saving us money and time. Victoria has excellent attention to detail, we met her 2 days before the wedding and on the wedding day she had 2 assistants who spoke excellent English to help out.
