The Best Weddings
Every couple has their own personality and their own thoughts on a dream wedding and at Bestweddingaway our aim is to help the bride and bridegroom realise these dreams. From the couple’s initial contact through to the wedding day itself we spend a lot of time listening to and talking with the couple. We give inspiration and give a clear vision for the couple concerning all aspects of the day from the ceremony to the reception, from the food to the flowers. We work only with top quality suppliers to ensure that couples are rest assured that their day will run smoothly and have that real wow factor.All the couples we work with have stressed how invaluable it is to have a bilingual wedding planner who speaks the local language in order to help with the local legalities. Other feedback we often receive from couples concerns the excellent organisational skills and amount of attention that the couples receive from their wedding planner, both during the planning process and on the wedding day. They have all said how much appreciated this and how it allows them to relax and enjoy the wedding planning process.Here is a small selection of special celebrations we have arranged for couples to help inspire you with your own dream destination wedding!
Sam and Phil met Bestweddingaway at the National Wedding Show in Birmingham in 2011. At the beginning they wanted to get married in the UK but after some investigation and following advice they decided on Lake Garda as they were in love with the beauty of the venues and found out that getting married in Italy was actually cheaper and practical. They got married in a nice big room in Salò town hall overlooking the lake, then went to a stunning lake front terrace by boat for the aperitifs followed by an elegant reception outside in a villa. The full moon and the illuminated swimming pool just helped to create the right atmosphere! View some more wedding photos and read their comments
