Do you want to elope? Nobody really needs to know, apart from me.
Do you want a simple affair with your close family and friends? It will be lovely!
Do you want an edgy, bold statement of a wedding? Hell, yeah!
From the first time we speak, I’m the fairy making all wedding planning anxiety going away, and ensuring your personality is diffused into a celebration that you will be able to fully enjoy.
My custom services range from full wedding design and planning, to month-of coordination and paperwork assistance. As a wedding planner I will not impose rules, styles, vendors or suppliers on you, but I will source and provide anything you need to make your dream Italian wedding come true.
I have been planning wedding for over six years, and I have developed an efficient and organized process that will allow you to follow every step of the plan without sacrificing your free time, missing out on opportunities or forgetting what you want.
While I create entirely customized packages for each of my clients, you can view the most popular services below.
Full wedding planning and coordination
From save-the-date to thank-you cards I can envision your wedding the way you’ve always wanted it, then make it happen. I will work with you via email, telephone, Skype/Hangout and online project management platforms, showing you samples and projects, managing your timeline and facilitating your decisions, so that you are always in control and never under pressure. When we’ll meet in Italy for the first time you will feel like we’ve known each other for a long time, and you will be ready to live your special day. Find out more.
Elopement planning and coordination
There is a specific balance to elopements that resonates with my values. It’s about you and your love alone, which allows for maximum focus on the details and the atmosphere of the moment. When choosing this option you can expect the same process, structure and commitment that I apply to full planning services. But also a specialized approach devoted to solving the specific issues of this kind of celebration. I will not only source the most unusual and exclusive venues for the ceremony and celebration, but I will also ensure that the paperwork trail is taken care of. You will only have to look into each other’s eyes and say ‘I do’. Find out more.
Italian bureaucracy is legendary for its complicated and ever-changing nature. As a destination wedding planner it is my duty to stay on top of the requirements and the changes in the law, trusting the best professionals to provide all the necessary assistance to get your paperwork executed flawlessly. Thus your wedding will not only be beautiful and memorable, but more importantly legal in your home country! Find out more.
Month of coordination
You have booked the venue, chosen the menu, selected the officiant, bought the dress, planned your trip… it’s time to get married! I take matters into my own hands just weeks before your Big Day, and I execute everything as you planned and intended it. I am the first person to be at the venue and the last to leave the celebration, and I take care of every last minute details that need tending to. Find out more.
My forte is the personal relationship I develop with my clients, which allows me to really understand them and their story. This means that I only take on a limited number of projects every year (never more than ten), and that when you book with fatamadrina, you book with myself as your direct and only contact.
I approach each and every project as a blank canvas, without pre-formulated packages to squeeze your needs into, so the service descriptions above are just examples of what I could do for you. If you none of them should feel right for your actual needs on this page, do get in touch via my contact page and we can set up a free preliminary consultation. I will listen to your story and formulate the service that suits you best.
