Sophie and James, wedding on Lake Como
Lenno (Lake Como), July 23rd 2012.
Hi Laura, Sara and Martina,
We just wanted to let you know how happy we were with our dream wedding in Lake Como! The whole day was planned to perfection and we would both just like to say a huge thank you all for all your help and support.
Our friends and family were absolutely astonished at the beauty of the venue. A few of them burst into tears at the first sight of the stunning table set up and beautiful flower arrangements.
We owe so much to you Laura. You made the process of planning our wedding feel so effortless. You were always so helpful and so quick to answer our concerns and ideas. I think between us we must have sent around 300 emails!
As promised, here is our review of the wedding:
James and I found the Exclusive Italy website online and contacted Laura to explain what we were looking for and thankfully she responded very quickly and professionally. There were lots of other wedding companies however it was Laura’s professionalism and enthusiasm that appealed to us the most and their website looked very impressive.
We thought that the whole process would be difficult and stressful but having Laura made things so extremely easy – she was able to send pictures of different table arrangements, flowers, advice on hair stylists and makeup artists, legal requirements, hotel options, videographers and photographers. She would always answer our concerns and ideas quickly and it was so easy to communicate via email.
We stayed in Bellagio a few days before the wedding. Laura had arranged Sara and Martina to meet with us a few days before the wedding to go over final arrangements. They were both so nice and extremely supportive. It really was a pleasure to have them as part of our wedding. They were both so friendly and we immediately felt confident that we were in good hands!
The venue on the day was spectacular. We had visited Villa del Balbianello when on holiday 4 years ago and fell in love with the place. We had arranged for 2 separate boats – one for the bride and father and one for the guests. On arriving at the villa we were immediately stunned at how beautiful it was and the smell of fresh flowers and lilies was breathtaking. Sara and Martina co-ordinated the wedding beautifully. There were extremely efficient and ensured everything went to plan which meant that we could relax without having to worry.
We had also arranged for a videographer, Andrea, who was amazing and very discrete on the day. We received the video only a few weeks after the wedding and we were thrilled with the results – it really captures the emotion of the day and we get to relive our beautiful day everytime we watch it! After the ceremony we all enjoyed a wonderful meal under the loggia, which was provided by the caterers from Lido di Lenno. It was amazing to experience panoramic views of the lake whilst enjoying beautiful Italian food. The day came to a close with dancing to a few of our favourite songs under the stars. It was breathtaking. Thanks to Exclusive Italy we have been able to fulfil our dream wedding and one of the happiest days of our lives. We will be forever grateful.
Lots of Love
Sophie and James xxxxxxx
