Upon making the initial decision to marry in Italy, we were faced with the daunting task of how we would go about it exactly. Our dream was to have something out of the ordinary, stylish yet grounded, but above all to provide a party that our family and friends would be proud of. Obviously the venue was fundamental, but being born into Italian families, food was also paramount.
Skimming of various internet sites had not proved useful, and we were struggling to find the perfect package. However, after reading an article in The Daily Mail describing Helen’s Tuscan wedding, it was immediately obvious that Love and Lord could realise all that we’d ever wished for.
An initial meeting at the L&L London office highlighted Tuscany as the region most suited to accommodating our needs, and L&L swiftly organised a trip to Italy together with who was to be our personal wedding planner. Within two days she had guided us through all of the prospective venues and recommended caterers, and it was left to us to make our decision. Nine months later we were able to live the happiest day of our lives. It really was that simple.
The venue, food, pre-wedding bbq night were perfect and the proceedings seamless. Our guests were completely in awe with the whole weekend, and continue to talk about it to this day.
Our planner was absolutely fantastic, and she became a close friend. She could read our minds, completely taking away any stress and always on hand to resolve any query we might have had. Perhaps her greatest achievement was not pleasing us, but having to contend with our parents at the same time, who also fell in love with her.
We cannot thank the team enough for helping to provide us with our dream wedding. It will remain in our hearts forever.
Eloisa and Gianpiero
