Destination Wedding Planning Services

Your Luxury Wedding in Italy

Italy is a simply incredible place to host your wedding. However, getting it right with a destination wedding in Italy requires masses of experience, meticulous attention to detail, and commitment to perfection.

Being based in the UK is hugely beneficial. Nothing becomes lost in translation and we have the luxury of being able to meet regularly in person to pour over all the details.

As the detailed planning leads to the wedding beginning to take shape and your excitement builds, I enjoy being the calm, exacting, and unfailing pillar you trust to see it through to flawless execution. I’ll take care of everything so you can enjoy it all and rest assured that your guests will have the time of their lives.

Full Wedding Planning Service

With my full planning service, every detail is handled. I give you my extensive knowledge and experience, and take away all of the overwhelm. We discuss theme, colour, and complete wedding design and I guide you through budget determination and breakdown. We visit Italy together to choose venues and I help you choose the perfect suppliers, from both the UK and Italy.

From timelines and floor plans to travel and accommodation, guest lists, catering and entertainment – every aspect of your Italian wedding is coordinated by me, and I’ll remain your liaison with those vendors we choose throughout the process.

Whilst all of the planning is handled directly by me from the day we start working together right through to the wedding itself, on the day I will ensure that I have sufficient support from assistant coordinators so that every detail we have planned is executed flawlessly.

We will have ongoing consultations via telephone and email, and regular in-person planning meetings as required.

Fee: My fee for planning your Italian wedding will be dependent on your exact requirements; you can expect to pay 12% of your total budget, plus expenses, subject to a minimum and the details of how this works will be discussed at our initial consultation meeting

Venue Consultancy

If you are not yet certain about an Italian destination wedding, exploring wedding venues in Italy is the best way to be sure it is perfect for you and your guests.

We’ll have an initial meeting to develop your venue brief, then I’ll commence with formulating a detailed list so that ultimately we end up with up to six venues that fit your criteria. We’ll travel to Italy together where I’ll spend two or three days with you visiting your potential venues. The travel and visits are completely coordinated by me, although expensed by you.

The fee you have paid for this service would be deducted from the full-service planning fee, should you subsequently hire Elegante by Michelle J to fully plan your wedding in Italy.

Fee: £1500 + travel and expenses

An absolutely fantastic job

“Michelle did an absolutely fantastic job of making our wedding weekend in Italy the most magical experience for us and our guests. We owed the success of our wedding to her. She is extremely hard working, organised and had a meticulous attention to detail, advising us on aspects we never would have thought of, but which were so important for the smooth running and enjoyment of the day. You can only expect this of a true professional and she was such a pleasure to work with.”
