Tuscany Village wedding

Have you ever dreamt about your wedding in a Tuscan village surrounded by family and friends, then your dream can come true.  A ‘hotel’ that is a Tuscan village.  I had the joy of being at/experiencing Il Barro this time last year and it was amazing.  There is a chapel or you can do an outdoor ceremony and lots of lovely spaces for cocktails, dinner/dancing both indoor and outdoor.  In April the Wisteria tunnels around the property are in full bloom and just add to the romance. This property was a village and Ferruccio Ferragamo/family brought it and turned it into a Relais & Chateaux 5* resort, pretty awesome!!

So you don’t want that many to come with you, lol, an intimate group is still going to feel like they own the resort because it is so spread out.  And, if its just the two of you, then we will ensure you feel like you eloped to your dream and we take care of everything.

There are two pool areas, the one above is the modern/food&beverage close location, very nice, the other is down a flight of steps and just seems to be sitting in the Tuscan countryside, very peaceful and quiet.

 

The picture above is the awesome driveway lined by cypress trees, you feel very special when those gates open and in you go

Lots of unique areas, here is the formal garden area of the villa/estate!!

Let me help you make your Tuscan dreams come true and my travel partner will handle all the air/accommodation (guests can stay elsewhere and come in for the wedding) and any transport needed and some wonderful Tuscan excursions, so you and the guests get the full under the Tuscan sun experience.  Yeeeeeessssssssssssss

Till next time

If these views and the feeling of romance that Positano stirs in everyone who  has been the want to have your wedding there, I can help.  It really is a very special place and one that everyone you invite is going to want to come to, so be careful, and what a great step of point to the rest of the Amalfi Coast or elsewhere in Europe for your guests to visit before coming home, and for your honeymoon!

I can help you plan the wedding and my travel partner can take care of everyone’s air/hotel/transport and the group excursions we will plan, so this will be nice and easy.

Mallorca/Spain wedding

have you ever heard of the island of Mallorca?  it’s off the coast of Spain, easy and inexpensive flights from Barcelona, and the island next door to it is called Ibiza (known as the party island, have i got your attention now??)

Well i spent a week here not too long ago and loved every minute and will go back.  We stayed in villas at Marriott Vacation Club, great for couples/families travelling together to destination weddings, the units were 2 storey and we had our own wee backyard to sit in the listen to the birds/nature, people playing golf in the background, pretty awesome.

It’s an easy island to drive around, the city of Palma has the cathedral and lots of things to see and do and restaurants of course, the coastline has great beach clubs and restaurants to have great food for very inexpensive.  We travelled up to the town that the tennis Rafael Nadal is from, a lovely town, and there are other coastal towns with cliffside restaurants and places to just chill, hang out and appreciate being alive.

I would love to help you have your destination wedding here, large or small, and my travel partner can handle everyone’s air/hotel/transport/group excursions we may do, and after the wedding people can pop off to any part of Europe they want to explore/vacation/enjoy, and you too for the honeymoon.  Nice and easy with us.

Till next time

Paris wedding, Reims, Monet, Palaces

Ok, not my pics but just a taste of my favourite trip to Paris and this area (I have been about 6 or more times I think, but my ‘phone’ memories that show up are telling me I was there last 7 years ago about now, that’s too long time to go back.  But anyway, if you are thinking a romantic wedding in Paris would be great and you have a small or large group wanting to go, i can help.  From having your wedding night at the Ritz (yep did that too, well not my wedding night but it was my 40th birthday) to maybe the wedding in Reims the champagne district where there are lovely countryside look/feel hotels and wonderful tastings, to a day trip to Monet’s gardens (so wonderful), Seine river cruises for brunch or dinner or lunch with everyone, or how about dinner in the Eiffel Tower (yep done that too), or visits or even events at the Palace of Versailles or other Palaces-how does that sound??? I would love to help you create your romantic wedding, and after everyone can go their own way to wherever they want to travel and vacation now and you can do the same for your honeymoon.  I help with the wedding and my travel partner helps with everyone’s air/hotel/transport and the group excursions we will plan, how exciting, let’s do this!!  So nice and easy and no frustration from your end on dealing with vendors who don’t speak English.  Oui I speak a little French, merci!!

Till next time

Venice Italy wedding

So fortunate that this was my 5th time to Venice.  You can never say you know it inside and out because there are so many areas and alleys and places to get lost in, but from a standpoint of lovely resorts and incredible excursions for your guests to do to make this destination wedding even more magical, yep, it’s all there.

This trip happened to be just about this time last year, so if it was now it would not be happening.  Have plans to be back later in the year, but due to coronavirus we will see.  My US bestie was having a special birthday and my birthday is 5 days after hers, so after a few days toddling around Tuscany doing things we had not done before together there, off to Venice by train we went, nice and easy, and then into our water taxi on the way to the Hotel Danielli where we had a waterfront view room that was just incredible.  We sat on our balcony that really wasn’t a balcony drinking mini bar champagne, yes that is how caught up in the moment we were, lol, and from our standpoint we were giving people joy walking by that saw two lovely ladies living their best lives.  lol

For the first time ever I walked across the bridge of Sighs, amazing!!

So many beautiful ornate hotels and restaurants for wedding celebrations here, let me help you pull yours together, and my travel partner will handle yours and the guests’ air/accommodation/transport and those excursions i mentioned earlier.  When the wedding is over everyone will go their own way to live their best lives in Europe before heading home, and will thank you for the experience they had.  Sooo good.

Till next time

Bellagio/Lake Como Wedding

I had heard that Bellagio in Las Vegas was  built based on a village in Italy, and it wasn’t until I was heading to Lake Como and someone mentioned Bellagio to me, take the boat over they said, well we had a car and i thought we would drive and spend the night, but my husband said no, lets do the boat.  So we did, we both regretted it, the boat right was excellent, seeing all the views around the lake on the way, but once we saw Bellagio we knew it was a place we would have loved to stay at, so next trip we will.

Perfect for a destination wedding, lots of different accommodations to match guests style/budget, a lovely resort lake front where you could have a lovely wedding event, walk down the road to the Botanical Gardens and have pics there, and then have pics through out Bellagio on your way back to the hotel, where the guests have been having cocktails looking at the lake view and pinching themselves that they are there drinking champagne and that is Lake Como and they are at the real Bellagio, not a duplicate!!

I can help you plan the wedding and my travel partner can handle everyone’s air/hotel/transport, and any pre/post group excursions we want to do!!

Till next time

Capri

Chic chic chic.  That’s Capri, been twice and will go back again.  From fancy dancy luxury hotels to beach side hole in the wall hotels, you can find it all here and all over the island can find great restaurants/views to enjoy and pretend you came off one of the mega yachts that are always in the bays around.

Let me help you plan your Capri wedding and my travel partner will handle all the guests flight/hotel/transport needs and some group excursions for pre/post wedding, before everyone heads in different directions to explore Italy/Europe after.

Till next time

Ravello/Amalfi Coast wedding

When you stumble upon something fabulous when you travel it can make a mediocre place or experience magical, well the good news is Ravello is neither mediocre or blah, it is magical and we found this hotel on the ocean in Ravello, walkable distance to other towns along the coast, or a drive up the hill behind (you can climb the stairs from the bottom if you want, i have no idea how long that would take as no way i was going to do it, even though the views would have been stunning) and go to the main town of Ravello high high up with incredible views looking down to the Amalfi coast and ocean.

Whether you want to take over this resort or others in the area or have everyone stay up at the main part of Ravello, this is a perfect place to bring a small group or many to for your Amalfi destination wedding, and i would love to help you.

My travel partner can arrange all the  guests air/hotel/transport and any pre/post group excursions we want to do.  So between the two of us, nice and easy for you.

Till next time

Lake Como wedding

Aaaah beautiful Lake Como with so many options for your Destination Wedding.  You can do it in the township, old or new style, so many cool restaurants by the water, or one of the venues dotted all around the lake that guests can get to by boat or stay in that small village/town and just walk to your wedding.  Fun fun, my fave location around the lake is Bellagio and that gets it’s own post/blog later.

Let me help you plan your Lake Como wedding celebration, intimate or large, and my travel partner can handle all the air/hotels and pre/post group excursions we plan!  So we will make it nice and easy for you.

Till next time

Sorrento Italy wedding celebration

Sorrento is such a great city, a gateway to so many wonderful places/experiences in Italy.  Capri is a boat ride away, Amalfi is down the coast, Naples is up the road, Pompei is not that far, and it has a village/walk around feel/vibe which is great for a destination wedding.  Guests can stay where they want/budget or style preference yet still be close to everyone else in town, and I have the perfect hotel with gorgeous views over to Naples for the wedding celebration.  Once the wedding is over, you can determine where you are going to honeymoon and your guests can continue travelling wherever they want from this central place not only to Italy, but can fly from Naples wherever they want to go.  I have been to Sorrento and this area two times and I will be back!!

Let me help you plan and have a wonderful Sorrento wedding celebration.

Till next time
