Monique & KarisTown hall Siena 2006
The Villa Venue 21 was spectacular, it would be no understatement to say it really was a fairy tale location for a wedding party to spend such a special occasion. Although our wedding took place on a single day, our stay was a week in total with our guests staying for a total of 4 nights / 5 days. The views around the Tuscan hills were magical and it was made to feel extra special having the facilities to comfortably accomodate so many close friends and our family. It was a wonderful occasion and probably the only time our entire family had stayed together in such a way.
When you decide to get married and choose to do it abroad you will worry, no question! Daniela put all those worries to bed! The organisation from the initial conception and early planning through to the timings of the services on the wedding day itself were impeccable. Nothing was ever going to be late, every single intricate detail happened exactly as it was meant to be, we were left to be chaperoned through what was undoubtedly the most memorable day of our lives. Don’t worry, Daniela makes it all work!
My wife spent hours looking for flowers and worrying about arrangements in the UK. We even had a dummy table arrangement made up and photographed in order to email to Daniela.
Daniela recommended a wedding photographer. Again, we naturally worried during the planning thinking that we would like to be able to choose our wedding photographs. His style of working is that he likes to choose the best pictures for wedding album. After much deliberation we decided to do things the Italian way and let him do what he is best at! He was with us all day on the wedding day taking shot after shot from the morning through the ceremony and into the aperitif. There were no problems working with him whatsoever. After a short wait after returning from honeymoon, we were couriered the most amazing Italian style laid paper Album (the cover design actually matched the wedding certificate presented to us in Siena!). As well as receiving the most stunning shots of our day, he provided all of the other negatives, professionally presented, just in case we wanted any other images. We genuinely have not changed a single shot that he selected for the album. His attention to detail and decision to use certain pictures over others were based on the slightest of differences that took ages to discover but he definitely got it right! We never knew we looked so good! it was like having some sort of modelling portfolio of your day, fantastic!"
