The epitome of calm efficiency

Maria, thank you again for everything you did to make the wedding so wonderful! I’m still basking in the afterglow!
The decor was spectacular, the team were really friendly and efficient, the food was yummy so people actually commented on how delish it was and you were amazing - the epitome of calm efficiency. THANK YOU!

Maria is the best wedding planner

We looked for many wedding planners when we got engaged but Maria stood out for us from the beginning as she really listened to what we wanted from the start and wasn't salesy like many planners we met. We got married abroad which made the whole planning process a bit more complicated but Maria dealt with all of our requests with confidence and calmness throughout! It was really helpful that Maria set regular meet ups with us running up to the wedding, and offered ideas (especially around budget which we had no idea before) but also respected our decisions. Its a lot to consider -location, catering, dress, transport, decorations, scheduling and all the special requests from guests.. but it became clear to us that Maria is very experienced with weddings as she dealt with all of the above with such ease!
On our actual wedding day, Maria checked in with us from time to time to reassure us that everything is ok behind the scenes which put me at ease so that I could enjoy my day.

I CANNOT recommend Maria more, she is a fantastic wedding planner and my special day wouldn't have been as special without her.

Great service, great advice, great wedding!

Thank you Maria! Thanks to Maria's professionalism and experience, our wedding was not only unforgettable and amazing, but greener than we could have hoped for!

Simply perfect!

We were hesitant about getting a planner involved. We had a very small gathering and had such a clear idea of what we wanted and with it being a small wedding and all, we really thought we didn’t need one.
But after booking Maria for a 2h consultation we decided that actually, we did really need some help.
We ended up doing the planning ourselves taking on the advice Maria gave us. But in the end, and for our peace of mind, we booked Maria to run our wedding on the day. Not enough words to describe her professionalism and creativity!
I am so glad we did it! It really allowed us to fully enjoy our wedding with our family and friends!

Excellent experience, Maria is a very professional and energetic person to work with. With a knee eye and a creative mind, absolutely recommended

We had the pleasure to work with Maria at one of her workshops and at the end of the day we were very much impressed by her incredible competence and ideas. She has a lot of creativity and a great methodology to show you how to organise such an important day in the best way possible and also with a different vision. Her workshops were extremely accurate and very well organised, covering all the different aspects about wedding planning. What stuked me more is all the inside knowledge Maria has of the events industry and how capable is to make it easier for you . This really helped us understand how things works, how to deal with suppliers, all of this having sustainability in mind.
I really recommend the workshop for anyone looking to plan their own wedding. Good fun and great inspirations

Fantastic service - so happy!

My (now!) husband and I were really happy to get engaged, but very stressed about the organisation and also trying to keep it ethical. Maria had all the answers and had so many ideas and was so responsive that it really made the whole process so much smoother and less stressful. Will recommend it to all my friends getting married!
