Trying to organise a wedding abroad when you don’t speak the language and can be extremely daunting. From the moment that we contacted Distinctive Italy we felt reassured by their professionalism. They have a large list of reputable suppliers that they work with and at no stage did we feel that we were being pressured into employing any particular supplier. Our wedding planner, Raffaela, kept in frequent contact with us throughout the 12 months that we were planning the wedding with rarely a week passing without some contact. Having chosen for Catholic service, Raffaela, liaised with the local priest and provided us with all of the paperwork and information that we needed to get legally married in Italy. This was a massive relief as it is a legal and administrative minefield to navigate.
Initially Distinctive Italy arranged a shortlist of several venues, all of which were beautiful locations. We choose Casa Country House which greatly exceeded our expectations. On the wedding day a representative from Distinctive Italy, Antonella, spent the full day and night with us and everything went so smoothly with her coordination.
The suppliers that Distinctive Italy sourced for us were all genuinely amazing. The band, the DJ, the guitarist, the florist, hairdresser, the church and the venue were all flawless. Our guests were all really impressed with every part of the day and we couldn’t have been happier. Our impression is that Distinctive Italy would not work with suppliers that are not of a high standard.
Throughout the planning, we were kept fully informed of the costs and at no stage did we feel that we weren’t in control or being pressured into buying services that we did not want or were above and beyond our budget. Distinctive Italy offered practical support in a very clear concise way.
We are so grateful to Raffaela, Antonella and Rosanna at Distinction Italy for all their hard work and guidance. They really took the stress away from us and made our wedding day the best day of our lives. They are professional, very well organised and personable. We highly recommend services. Natalie and Barry
