Ciao Laura!

My husband and I got married in Tuscany in May and we had the most wonderful wedding thanks to Laura at Choco Weddings.
When we decided we wanted to get married in Italy we didn’t really know where to start… so many beautiful places and seemingly a large variation in costs. Laura was one of many planners who responded to my enquiry on an abroad weddings site. Unlike other planners she immediately provided us with so much information, different venue options and reassurance that we could work within our budget. We quickly set up a meeting and decided on our chosen venue. The booking process was easy and all taken care of by Laura. She was easily contactable and quick to respond to emails, answering all of my many, many questions, thank you! This was so invaluable given that we booked everything without seeing the venue due to Covid! But working with Laura, reassured us that everything would be as expected.
When we eventually were able to visit Italy, Laura met with us at the venue to show us around and explain how everything would come together on the day! We had such a lovely afternoon with her and her Husband.
The rest of the booking process was smooth and Laura suggested lots of different vendors for us to choose from to suit our budget and our vision.
When the wedding day finally came around Laura was on hand to take care of everything behind the scenes. We met the day before to sort out our legal documents and finalize the finer details for the next day. The process of gathering the correct documentation for the Italian authorities to be legally married in Italy could have been very complicated and stressful. But Laura gave us very clear guidance and deadlines which made everything simple.
The wedding day was complicated by some unpredictable weather but Laura made all the decisions regarding where to set up the ceremony and reception taking the pressure of us which I really appreciated. She 100% made the correct decisions allowing us to get married outside in the Abbey in the sunshine but later stay dry inside during our wedding dinner – thank you.
The decoration, set up and organisation of everything on our wedding day was just perfect and exceeded our expectations.
Planning a wedding from afar could have been really difficult and stressful but Laura made it the opposite – easy and seamless.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Laura as she is so friendly, knowledgeable and always on hand to help. We can’t recommend Laura and Chocoweddings highly enough. If you are looking for an Italian wedding planner, you’ve found her!
