Wedding in Florence

Charlene & Gary, 17 September 2014

When choosing a wedding planner to help us elope to Florence, we had a fairly strong idea of what we wanted for our big day. We contacted around a dozen planners with details of what we wanted, and Chocoweddings was the only one to offer us exactly what we asked for – and at an excellent price.

The legal/paperwork side of things was what we were most worried about (we had heard some horror stories about Italian bureaucracy!). Chocoweddings’ guidance in completing the necessary paperwork was so helpful, and having someone to sense-check everything was a massive relief to us. Laura was always just an email away when we had any questions, which was very reassuring! Having someone who speaks the language and knows the procedures was invaluable (especially when the town hall requirements changed just before the wedding!).

The hairstylist & make-up artist provided were ready and waiting at our hotel before we had finished our breakfast, and they did an excellent job to make me look (and feel) beautiful.

Our photographer was very friendly – he put us both at ease, and the photographs (which arrived really quickly) are so beautiful! We are so excited to share these with our families, and we will treasure them forever. Everything else you arranged for us – the car, our witnesses, translation, flowers, etc. was perfect, and everything was exactly where it needed to be, when it needed to be there. We just didn’t need to worry about anything at all, which meant we were able to fully enjoy our day.

Our ceremony (in the stunningly beautiful Sala Rossa) was wonderful, and the whole day was everything we imagined it to be, and more – and this is all thanks to Laura and Chocoweddings! We couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

Thank you so much for giving us such an amazing and memorable experience!
