Fiona and Ronan - Snow Wedding in the Italian Alps

Rosanna & Raffaela,

All of our dreams came through at our Winter Wedding in Courmayeur, Italy on January 11, 2014 and we cannot thank you both enough for your help, support, advise and impeccable planning!

We had talked about having a snow wedding for a few years but did not think it was truly possible until we contacted you. At first we were very cautious about using a wedding planner, and we had a million questions - all of which were answered to our satisfaction.

Rosanna and Raffaela helped us with every detail and even searched the country for the perfect location that would allow easy transport from Ireland for our 65 guests but which would also provide stunning scenery, a ski resort and a truly Italian feel.

We relied on Raffaela's suggestions and advise when selecting venues and service providers, we knew we could trust her and she really did pick the best around.

Courmayeur is the prettiest place we know, a beautiful village in the shadows of Mont Bianco/ Blanc with great ski slopes, delicious food and the most amazing atmosphere. Our guests were blown away! Even the weather was perfect.

Our Catholic Wedding Mass in the angelic Church celebrated by Fr John and Fr Dan and the church choir brought a tear to most of our guests.

The videographers and the photographers were incredible. They really did go above and beyond the standard service and they made us feel like celebrities.The photos and the video is like something out of Hollywood, we are so delighted with them. We didn't think we wanted a video, but thanks to Raffaela we did get them and we are so happy we did - thank you! 

The flower arrangements were perfect and my hair and make up along with my mother and bridesmaid's were so good, Monica  was so kind to us all and made us look and feel like a million dollars!

We can not comprehend the unbelievable welcome we were given by the venue and service providers.

We had our aperitifs in the cute and traditional mountain refuge, they were so nice they put on loads of food and even arranged music for us. The location above the clouds was breath taking, "close to heaven" our guests described it.

The Hotel was really the perfect location, the owner and staff were great and so helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and our guests are still talking about the 'Best Wedding Cake Ever.' Our DJ kept everyone on the dance floor all night. 

Raffaela also helped us with transporting our guests on the day which was a big task. 

I cannot recommend DIW enough, we had no stress or concern, it was great to be able to spend our Wedding Day as a couple with our guests and not have to worry about anything, only enjoying ourselves. 

Raffaela was almost my personal assistant and counsellor, she always answered my emails and questions promptly and explained each detail carefully.

We both want to thank you so much for organising the happiest days of our life so far. We hope more couples opt for a magical snow wedding and that they choose DIW to plan the day.

Lots of love,

Fiona & Ronan
