More Than Weddings
More than Weddings is a company that was created with one idea in mind: make your special day absolutely perfect.
We have always been passionate about love and will be with you every step of the way to help you express your love for one another in a beautiful destination wedding in Italy.
We chose to get into wedding planning because we have a deep passion for people, and helping take stress off people’s plates for their big day so “all you have to worry about is your dress”.
Our understanding of culture will help with the perfect planning design. We have traveled to more than 38 different countries with stays ranging from a few days to, in one case, three years! If it’s fashion you are interested in, we have a combined 24 years of experience in the fashion industry in Italy, with 9 of those years being spent modeling in Milan. For a good understanding of the local area, we have over 10 years of experience in the tourism industry and know all the “hot spots” for you to either have your special day or travel to after your special day.
More than Weddings is based in Venice and Verona – Lake Garda - but we are working all over our country. Italy is one of the most captivating countries in the world. Choose Italy as the location for your most beautiful day or to render unique any of life’s important occasions. A country rich in history, culture, art, tradition, unbeatable and breath-taking landscapes, enogastronomic culture, style, fashion, trend, and a global level of influential excellence.
Think of the breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast, the scent of the grape harvest in the Chianti hills, the medieval villages of Umbria, the blue sea of Sardinia, the olive trees surrounding Lake Garda, the love that reigns in Verona looking out from the balcony of Romeo and Juliet, and the uniqueness of Venice…Every corner, even the most remote village has its very own fascinating history.
More than Weddings offers a variety of different platforms for you to choose from, ranging from an all-inclusive wedding package that combines your ceremony, everything that you wish to have for your ceremony (photographer, videographer, florist, cake, priest/justice of the peace, celebrant, bureaucracy, location, banqueting), reception, and honeymoon all in one. We are also able to plan an entire week for you and your valued guests to travel to your destination and experience the lifestyle and different cultures of the area.
Another thing we can do is simply plan your day! We can leave the honeymoon to you, and simply plan a perfect ceremony for you in the location of your choice. Finally, we can offer every service that goes along with weddings separately if you wish to plan your own wedding and honeymoon. Those services range from videographers to florists, and everything in-between. We will take the stress of planning a wedding off your plate so you can simply enjoy the day, and take every single moment in, rather than having to worry about everything being set up properly, and running smoothly.
Wedding day was perfect
We would like to thank Marta and Cristiana for an amazing day they created for us in the beautiful Amalfi coast. Everything from start to finish was perfect and as planned which is very unusual for South of Italy! There’s no way we could have pulled this off without the help of the local knowledge and contacts. We were probably not the easiest couple to work with – with our weirdest demands and late change of plans but Marta and Cristiana never argued or pushed their opinion and did a completely bespoke wedding of our dreams. We could feel every moment that they wanted to do the best job possible and always considered culture differences. Weekly skype calls for progress updates were brilliant way of keeping us assured and listen to what we think.
We can’t believe wedding planners usually get unnoticed during the wedding but they spent so much time with us or working on our wedding, we can't thank them enough. Initially they spent a lot of time getting to know us better, and the remaining time we felt that we could entrust every decision for them because they knew us so well.
They organised kick-off meetings with the suppliers: we went to Italy for 2 days but every minute was planned out and we met many different suppliers and chose together the preferred ones and now we can comfortably say we made the perfect choices!
Wedding day was perfect – prayers for a sunny day were heard and everything from start to finish was above perfect. We did not have to worry about anything on the day but most importantly seeing smiles on Marta’s and Cristiana’s faces gave us a total peace of mind. What started as a quick and shy first skype video call ended with a beautiful professional and personal friendship. Grazie mille to MoreThanWeddings and best of luck in the future!
