When Gerard and I spoke of getting married we always knew that we wanted to go to Italy, and when we came across Romantic Italian Weddings we knew that Villa San Crispolto had to be the one for us. From our initial phone call with Marco he had us! Our wedding week at the villa was more than anything we could have hoped for. The villa itself - you will never see anything as breathtaking and its surroundings are so well kept by Italo, a true gentleman. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect and it was all down to Marco and his team. We met with Marco and Monica the day after we arrived who went through the whole day ensuring we had everything we wanted, they left no stone unturned. Monica is such as asset to RIW and it was a pleasure to be able to meet her and work with her. The 8 steps tool made the whole planning process so straight forward and covered every aspect from the ceremony to the disco!
Nello, our hairdresser of choice, came to the villa on the morning exactly on time with a bottle of prosecco for me and my girls. Although he said he did not speak good English, he understood exactly the look we wanted. And the beautiful Sara, also part of his team, done our make up and we couldn’t have been happier with the way we all turned out.
We decided to have our ceremony on the Cathedral of Cortona, such an amazing place. The string trio from Musician’s Bay played beautifully throughout and also accompanied us back at the Villa during the aperitifs; they were a nice touch to our special day. DJ Alex met with us the day before the wedding to establish our taste in music for the reception. He had us dancing all night and was able to provide any special requests. I would definitely recommend Alex, no party would be the same without him.
Paolo and Francesca provided our flowers. They were so helpful and kind throughout our planning, I could not recommend them highly enough. On the morning of our wedding when the flowers arrived I was delighted to see the arrangements.
Our transport needs were met by Trasimeno Turismo. From airport transfers to the hire car to transport for our guests the day of the wedding. Sara corresponded with us throughout our planning and we were always guaranteed a speedy reply to any questions we had, she just made everything so easy for us.
After going through the menus of all the caterers recommended by Marco numerous times, we decided to go with Guiliano, and we were not disappointed - we have never had so much food at a wedding!! We had the chance to try some authentic Italian food where we never would have before. He is so professional and such a gentleman. If you are looking for someone to provide a feast fit for a king then he will not let you down. I can’t forget to mention the wedding cake – I have never tasted anything like it!
I could go on and on talking about the wonderful people we met that week who all had a part to play in our big day, but I have to talk about Marco. Its hard to put into words the type of man that can take a girls dream of her perfect wedding and make it a reality. So caring, always had a smile on his face, and nothing was too much trouble for him. Marco will always have a special place in our hearts, and both Gerard and I hope that some day we will have the pleasure of visiting Italy and seeing him again.
Thank you Marco and all the staff at RIW for an unforgettable week for which we will always be grateful.
