After considering the various options open to us Yuko and I decided it would be nice to get married abroad. However, making that decision is the easy part and you then face the difficult part which is choosing where you want to get married and trying to work out how you will handle all the arrangements. That is where Love and Lord come in.
We had met a number of wedding planners but none came close in being able to quickly lay-out a vast array of venue options with sufficient information and pictures on each to enable you to narrow down the field to a short-list of potential options. Love and Lord then arranged a seamless trip for us to visit each in turn. The trip was fun and in the end we were convinced we had found the perfect venue for our wedding.
Having identified the venue, Love and Lord then handled all negotiations with the hotel and identified local service providers for hairdressing, performing the service, flowers, music etc. All of the people they identified filled us with confidence and each delivered a superb service on the day.
This is how planning a wedding should be, you get to enjoy all the nice bits and Love and Lord take the vast majority of the stress away. However, choosing venues and seamless planning is only one requirement for the perfect wedding planner, the other important aspect is you need to like and trust the people you are working with. Again we cannot praise the people highly enough, our principal wedding planner was tremendous throughout but all members of the Love and Lord team were very friendly, very helpful and very professional.
In the end we had a wonderful, wonderful wedding. We married in hills above Florence over a long weekend with approximately 30 close family and friends who were all looked after by Love and Lord and the superb hotel we had selected, the Villa San Michele. As its should be, it was the best time of our lives.
Our many thanks to the Love and Lord team, you truly made our special day spectacular.
