MEET OUR TEAM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Marina

Ciao! I’m Marina, born and raised in Sicily. I believe in the astonishing potential of my land, and my love for the island is so strong that I started an event agency close to Taormina.

I graduated with degrees in foreign languages (English and Russian) before joining the world of tourism and events. I wanted to learn more, and so I went back to school to earn a masters degree in tourism, hospitality & event management.

Over the years, I’ve showed many couples and their guests the beauty, flavors, colors and traditons of my beloved Sicily, all while helping them fulfill their dream weddings. To me, organizing weddings and events is more than just a job; I feel emotionally involved in creating those unforgettable moments. I believe that friendliness, creativity and ambition are the keys to great events, and those qulaities are also my greatest attributes!

Alessandra

No matter the number of guests, I am always thrilled at the potential to create personal and memorable events.

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.

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.
