Our typical wedding has more than 25 guests. However, we do sometimes plan weddings with fewer guests. We specialise in weddings with receptions so we don’t plan weddings without receptions I’m afraid.
We plan weddings all over the Mediterranean: Santorini, Zante, Rhodes and Crete in Greece, Italy, Spain, Ibiza, Croatia, Malta and we recently launched Portugal. We work with a handpicked selection of venues for each of our destinations so we can get to know each venue we work with well and can discuss and recommend them with confidence.
I’m afraid we don’t currently offer a tailored venue search, but watch this space, we have lots of exciting plans being announced soon!
How the planning works
First we encourage you to look at our website to get an idea of the weddings we have previously planned and read the real life wedding stories that our couples have so generously spent time doing to share their experience with you. If you like what you see please call or email us and we'll ask you some detailed questions about your plans.
Once you have decided on a venue the most important thing is to secure a date as some locations book up to 2 years in advance! You’re then all set to book your travel, look for the perfect dress and start collecting ideas about your wedding.
The interim planning takes place next. This is where we look at your plans in detail; menus, flowers, entertainment, hair and makeup etc. By the end of this stage you'll have a clear idea the costs and how the day will flow, the final planning then takes place closer the wedding!
Ah, and don’t forget the all important legal work. We’ll guide you step by step through this process with our in-house legal team! Finally, on the day our team will be there to guide & co-ordinate to perfection.
Small Island Politics and Law Changes
Another important consideration when you are planning a wedding abroad is that there are bound to be a certain amount of politics that come into play with some vendors not working well alongside each other, unfortunately it’s inevitable. We know who works best together and who ‘not to use’. The last thing you want is tension on your wedding day that you cannot put your finger on but you can feel is there!
With laws changing all the time and tax laws in Europe especially becoming very rigid and uncompromising it’s important that each supplier used is registered and paying the relevant taxes. We ensure all of our suppliers are vetted, have the relevant paperwork and more importantly are reliable and will turn up on your wedding day, come hell or high water!
It’s the boring stuff but incredibly necessary when it comes to planning a wedding abroad when you can't physically see what’s happening whilst at home!
What Happens when things DON't go to plan?
Well, this is where we really shine. There are things which are out of everyone’s control for example, the weather! In each case we work with our couples to find resolution to any issue, we’ve been known to spend a full day finding an alternative venue if it looks like the weather means plan A is no longer possible! Whilst 99.9% of our weddings go seamlessly without any hiccups we’re always on full alert with plan B for when it’s needed!
