Carmela Weddings are a high-end wedding planning team made up of a fantastic husband and wife duo – entertainment experts Lisa (whose middle name, Carmela, lends itself to the brand) and Sam. With their combined masculine and feminine perspectives, they specialise in creating unique, modern, ahead of the trend weddings that couples love.
Carmela Weddings have been in the business for 3 years, receiving coverage from multiple print and online publications. Their recent relaunch was inspired by their desire to cater specifically to fashion-forward couples who want the perfect combination of luxury and “hipster” style. Instead of looking to typical traditions for inspiration, Carmela Weddings make use of ideas from the worlds of art and fashion to create design-led days.
Just as few months ahead of the Carmela relaunch, Lisa told Wedding Day Magazine, “I truly believe every wedding should be as unique as the couple and if you use their personalities you will always get a really unique day“.
Lisa and Sam’s passion for unusual, highly personalised, one of a kind ceremonies and receptions is exemplified in their rebrand, which highlights just how unique a wedding can be. Carmela Weddings aims to challenge the norms and make sure no couple has to conform to something that doesn’t suit them. This duo are the perfect planners for any couple who want every detail to reflect who they are and why they love each other.
Lisa says the ultimate goal is “for guests to leave a wedding thinking, ‘that was so them!'”.
This planning pair bring a lot of unique skills to the table. Lisa is a qualified celebrant with a degree in law – perfect for couples who are looking for the best deals with suppliers or those want to get married in a unique location. Their background of over 15 years in entertainment and event management puts them in the ideal position to plan exciting weddings that go off with out a hitch.
Carmela Weddings have a package for every couple, no matter how much or little they want. From Let’s Do This inspiration sessions to The Whole Shebang (full and partial planning), they’ll handle anything from venue sourcing to moodboards to on-the-day coordination.
They’re based in Surrey, but they’ve planned weddings around the UK and Europe – including Malta, where half-Maltese Lisa held her own marriage to Sam. With concepts like Warehouse and Country Modern under their belt, quirky couples know Carmela can handle whatever they throw at them.
