MEET OUR TEAM

Amelia

Wedding Planner

I was born in Tuscany and raised in Milan, but my favorite part of Italy is Lake Como, where I’ve lived for the past 15 years. I love showing off the beauty of my adopted hometown, and although I’m very familiar with Lake Como and all it has to offer, I’m always open to new discoveries.
My objective is to use my local expertise and knack for interpreting my client’s visions to create truly special weddings — for the couples and their family and friends.
I hold a degree in marketing and communication from Bocconi University, and my background includes more than 10 years of experience working in budgeting, research, supplier communication and complete process planning. (Translation: I’m very organized and excellent at deciphering my clients’ needs!) I also worked as a product manager for Procter & Gamble, where I represented several commercial brands throughout Europe.
Besides creating dream weddings, I enjoy traveling, learning about different cultures and connecting with new friends.

Anna

Wedding Planner

Hello! My name is Anna, and I came to the event planning business by way of cinema, where I was lucky enough to collaborate with many famous directors and producers. My experience with the glitz and glam of movies taught me how to create unforgettable, visually stunning events.

I love taking care of people, from fulfilling a couple’s wishes for personalized ceremonies and receptions to giving brides peace of mind throughout the planning process. My goal is to make everything as easy as possible on my brides, starting from the first meeting to the moment they say “I do.”

I like to work hand in hand with my couples, meeting with both to get to know them and to learn about their passions, expectations and fears for the big day. I see my role as a guide, there to inspire and create a smooth, personalized event so on the wedding day the bride and groom have nothing to do but enjoy it all.

In 2016 I published my first novel, taking inspiration from my passion for wedding planning.

Cecile

Wedding Planner

After several successful years working on events for luxury hotels around the world, I decided to switch gears and use my creativity and highly-refined organizational skills as a wedding planner. I enjoy the more personal aspects of working with couples, while still getting to go all-out planning dazzling events.

When I fell in love with Lake Como several years ago, I knew that this beautiful region of Italy was the ideal spot from which to help others realize their dreams of spectacular weddings. I am incredibly fulfilled helping couples experience their own Lake Como ceremonies and receptions, and I work tirelessly to ensure flawless results.

I graduated from the Tourism and Business Management University in Geneva, Switzerland and have lived in Lake Como for the past 15 years.

Chiara

Wedding Planner

Buongiorno! My name is Chiara, and I am a wedding planner specializing in the Piemonte region of Italy. I am head-over-heels in love with my territory, and that passion is reflected in all of the events I orchestrate, from sophisticated lakeside weddings to charming vineyard vows to picturesque mountain receptions to elegant Torino affairs.

I first discovered my love for the wedding industry when organizing events for hotels. Combining my passion for organization with art, romance and creativity has brought me immense joy. Even after 10 years of working as a wedding planner, I still get excited about every new event.

My years of experience have helped me refine my ability to create weddings that perfectly capture my clients’ desires, and seeing their satisfied smiles is my greatest reward. I am always striving to give my best to my clients.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, cooking, trying out new restaurants and spending time with my two children.

Marilena

Wedding Planner

In spite of working fantastic jobs in event organization and sales development for Estee Lauder and clients like Fiat, I felt something was missing. My deepest dream was to create and execute unique events for couples in love, and so I switched gears, studying wedding planning and floral and table design.
Now, 10 years later, I’ve orchestrated more than 250 weddings throughout Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Milan, the lakes region and the Alps. My work has garnered an excellent reputation, and I’ve been honored to plan events for celebrities, royalty and luxury resorts.
My floral and table design studies have given me a leg up when creating breathtaking events and have earned me “Best Staging” awards.
In 2016 I moved to Florence, where I’m constantly inspired by the city’s rich culture, history and beauty. Every corner of Florence sparks inspiration for amazing weddings.

Cristina

Wedding Planner

I dreamed of becoming a wedding planner ever since I was a little girl in Naples, so yes, I enjoy every minute of my job! My passion and dedication are evident in my events, which are always highly reflective of my couples.

I prioritize the bride and groom, giving them all the advice and guidance they need to create a tailor-made wedding that suits their style. I have endless energy and am always active and present. I enjoy problem-solving, and I have the innate ability to find the bright side in any situation. Above all, I fall in love with every new project I take on.

Before starting work as a wedding planner three years ago, I traveled the world to learn more about foreign languages and cultures. I’m now back in Italy, where I live with the love of my life and our puppy, Tequila.

Elisa

Wedding Planner

Hi! My name is Elisa, and being a destination wedding planner in Italy is not only a job for me, but also a major passion and source of deep dedication. For me, a well-planned wedding is a matter of well-executed details. Not just in terms of style, but also in the planning process itself.

I aim to create unforgettable weddings for couples and their guests, while also keeping everything comfortable and relaxed for the bride and groom. I succeed in this via my driven work ethic, keen eye and friendly communication. By the time your Italian wedding arrives, you’ll be care-free and ready to enjoy every moment of your special time. I will handle the rest!

My life motto is “Love what you do, do what you love!” I feel lucky to live that motto every day as a wedding planner creating beautiful experiences for couples in love.

Fabrizia

Wedding Planner

Ciao! My name is Fabrizia, and I’ve worked alongside Maria Consilia since 2013 specializing in Capri island and Amalfi Coast weddings. As a young girl, I would wait patiently at my local church steps to catch a glimpse at brides and grooms emerging as husband and wife. I never forgot the magic of that atmosphere, and as an adult I decided to make creating it my profession.
As a local, I know all the hidden, less-conventional spots on the island, and I have the contacts to make any dream a reality. I especially love spring and autumn weddings, when my region comes alive with perfect weather and exquisite sunsets.
It’s important to me to marry traditional tastes with up-and-coming fashion. The results are stunning Mediterranean weddings that blend the old world with the new.
I can’t imagine doing any other job, and I still get excited at each and every vow exchange. In my free time I practice yoga and pilates and take long walks to unwind.

Michelle

Wedding Planner

Ciao! I’m Michelle, and I was one of the first planners to join the IWP team. Raised by a German mother and an Italian father, my personality perfectly reflects those contrasting origins: precise and organized, yet still creative and perceptive.
I began my career working fashion events before coming over to the wedding world, and I appreciate that every day is different and exciting. I have a knack for transforming simple ideas into unique, inimitable designs and love creativing special weddings for special couples.
I’m a very positive person and I find solutions to every challenge I encounter. My mantra is “nothing is impossible,” and I thrive on bringing a couple’s wedding vision to life. I’m a big believer in women’s power, and I love getting to work alongside brides and my female colleagues.
I live in Florence with my partner, Sergio, and our baby, Sophie. I enjoy traveling, good food, sunsets and experiencing all of the beauty that life has to offer.

Maria

Wedding Planner

Hi! My name is Maria, and I’ve been showcasing my beloved island of Sicily through beautiful events since 2007. I work all along the Mediterranean coast, planning remarkable weddings on the islands of Lampedusa, Pantelleria, Egadi and Eolie, in addition to Sicily.
Besides being creative, driven and organized, I hold a degree in psychology, which helps me understand my clients and satisfy all of their needs. My background also includes experience in floral design, and I love to dream up magnificient wedding flower displays.
I try to blend the natural beauty of the Sicilian landscape with our amazing surrounding culture, using the colors, aromas and flavors of Sicily as inspiration. I’m an excellent problem solver, ready to tackle any situation that comes my way with a smile on my face.
When I’m not planning weddings and creating stunning floral displays, I like to travel and spend time with my family, which includes my treasured dogs!

Maria Consillia

Wedding Planner

I fell in love with weddings at a young age while working big events on my home island of Capri. I made it my life’s work to create jaw-dropping wedding experiences for couples and their guests, and I’ve never looked back!
When I first meet couples, I always ask them how they envision their wedding day to get a feel for their tastes, passions and traditions. I then dream up incredible ways to celebrate their unique relationship via captivating details that tell the couple’s story.
My background includes a degree in Sciences of Tourism and work experience with leading hotels. For the past six years, I’ve been thrilled to be a wedding and events planner alongside my best friend, Fabrizia Brunetti.
My interests in fashion, interior design, paper goods, food and floral decor mean my events are always stylish, on-trend affairs. Above all, though, I am in love with my island of Capri, and it inspires all that I do.

Monica

Wedding Planner

Ciao a tutti!
I’m Monica and I'm an English mother tongue born and raised in Italy, with South African roots.
My experience in the Tourism and Event industry started very early on as an Airline Ground Staff member and an Account Executive for a Media Agency based in Rome that taught me so much!
I believe that my experiences shed a light on a new creative path and forged my way into the event planning field where I found the opportunity to express my ideas in an endless way.
Helping couples translate into something tangible something they would only dream of, is the core to why I love my job as a planner.
In my free time I like traveling, watching movies and do anything that can stimulate my imagination.
Determined, stubborn and often shamelessly honest, I believe that dedication and the ability to multi-task and work well under pressure can help overcome any obstacle, and that is how I see my journey as a Wedding planner.

Nina

Wedding Planner

Ciao! I’ve always had a passion for sparkles, glitter and lace, so it was only natural that I fell in love with the wedding industry!

In 2009 I started working as a wedding photographer and shot more than 200 weddings, but as time passed, I realized that what I really wanted to do was help couples realize their dream weddings, and so I became a wedding planner.

After seeing so many weddings through my camera lens, I know how to create those picture-perfect moments. I’m also good at understanding people and their needs, and I take great pride in making sure my couples feel well cared for.

Having grown up in a multilingual family and traveled all over the world, I have a fondness for differences. I’m very interested in learning about other cultures, and I believe that everyone has something special to offer.

I live with my husband and cat, Demetra (the true boss of the family), and consider every occasion a good occasion to open a bottle of wine with friends.

Valentina

Wedding Planner

Ciao!
I’m Valentina, a History of Art major, a perfectionist and a mum. I live in Rome with my husband and my son.
I love to sleep (life before my son Edoardo), to cook and therefore eat, so please don’t mention me any diet!
I’m passionate and assertive as all Scorpions-born are and an excellent leader, because extremely dedicated to what I do.
In 2011, after 10 years in the tourism field, often dealing with the management of Groups and Incentives, I decided to divert my skills exclusively into planning weddings.
I like to create a relationship with my couples that goes beyond work, because I get to experience and be part of their memory, something that will last forever.
My couples find me precise, with a strong organizational sense and extremely patient.
The things that I love about being a wedding planner are listening to my couples desires and turning their vision into something real. This is only possible through a relationship of mutual trust and empathy that I always try to establish with them and with my team of suppliers.

Vanessa

Wedding Planner

Hi! My name is Vanessa, and I have always loved the outdoors and art. I enjoy getting to blend those two loves as a wedding planner. I am constantly searching for new inspiration and ideas to take back to my couples, and I have a special flair for discovering wonderful venues, wine, food and music. I very much enjoy incorporating local touches into weddings in authentic and unique ways.
Friendly and attentive, I take a very hands-on approach with my clients, accompanying them each step of the way during the wedding planning journey. I try to be a valuable resource to them on everything from the best venues to the most reliable vendors.
Living la bella vita is my way of life (and motto for wedding planning!). I live in Tuscany, where the picturesque landscapes are a constant source of inspiration.

Roberta

Wedding Planner

Hello! I first came to the destination wedding world as an organizer of custom luxury tours in Italy for American travelers. I would scout exclusive villas for their stay in Italy, but I soon realized that what I really wanted to focus on was helping couples plan their dream weddings in these stunning locations.
As a United States native raised in Italy by Italian parents, I’m an excellent liaison between the two worlds. I like to really get to know my couples, learning about their lives and interests so I can best style their wedding of a lifetime.
I’m always up for exploring new trends and projects, and I especially appreciate brides looking to create wow factors for their big day. I also love incorporating tradition, both from the couple’s home countries and from beautiful Italy.
I live in a stunning medieval village in Umbria, where I enjoy the peace and nature with my two gorgeous children, Mattia and Beatrice.

Linda

Wedding Planner

My name is Linda Gatto, and I have been a destination wedding planner for more than 15 years, since I started organizing destination weddings and events on the Amalfi Coast in 2003.

I have always loved to travel since I was a child, and, thanks to my parents, I have had the opportunity to travel all over the world. This gave me the chance to get to know different cultures, and it also helped me to better enjoy and appreciate the Italian warmth and traditions.

When I was 18, I went to Miami to attend university. Two years later, I moved to Siena to study Economics and received a degree in business administration.

Destination wedding planning came to me by chance – my mother’s company planned events for Italians, and she wanted to start planning weddings for international couples as well. She asked me to work with her company, and I started attending floral and wedding planning classes in the United States to improve my skills.

I am very patient, meticulous and focused on details. I have a keen eye for beautiful things; for design and aesthetic. I have gentle manners, a very calm and reassuring demeanor, and I love to make the planning process as easy as possible for my couples.
