29_52When we decided to get married in Italy we had no idea how to go about planning a wedding abroad but thankfully we stumbled across The Tuscan Wedding and the most amazing wedding planner ever, Daniela.

From the very first response from Daniela it was clear that our wedding was in safe hands. Daniela and her team provide a first class service, they are the most professional and knowledgable wedding planners you could ever wish to plan your big day!

Daniela really gets to know you as a couple, understands your vision for your day and works so hard to make your dreams come true.

Even when we faced delays with our paperwork, Daniela never gave up and worked tirelessly to ensure everything was in order for our big day…..and what a day it was! I cannot describe how pleased we were with our wedding in Florence, it was the stuff that only dreams are made of but was made a reality thanks to The Tuscan Wedding!

Thank you so, so much. It truely was the best day of our lives and we cannot thank you enough.

Mille grazie!!!

1-440“Hi Daniela,

We both wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for bringing our ideas to life! Yesterday was magical, more than we could have ever hoped for and we could never have achieved that without you. We are honestly so grateful to you, it was the perfect day from start to finish.

You’ve been such a support over the past few months – even when there’s been problems with the documents. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Love

alazem_elhajj_nicolatonoliniphotographer_141_lowDaniela is a fantastic wedding coordinator. Her network of suppliers means you always find what you are looking for. Her great reputation with her suppliers means they are always willing to help out and make things happen. But perhaps the greatest part of working with Daniela is seeing that this is not just a job for her. To Daniela, you are not just another client… you are someone looking to make their Big Day memorable and perfect. She gets that! She works from the heart and never minds a long call, or long email or tires from requests. She found us the most stunning venue that we and later our guests fell in love with. On the day, Daniela and her team made sure everything ran like clockwork… everything was so well organized. We wish Daniela and The Tuscan Wedding all the success in the world for their hard work.

story-nd-1303“I must have skyped with 10 wedding planners before landing on Daniela at The Tuscan wedding. As soon as we started talking I knew instantly that this was the wedding planner for me! Daniela and her team made our special day so absolutely perfect! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing, and things just seemed to run seamlessly (thanks to Daniela and her team behind the scenes). I would absolutely 100% recommend The Tuscan Wedding. I have to say I will miss working with Daniela now that the wedding is over! Maybe we will have to come back to plan our 10 year celebration 🙂 Thank you so much, you truly made our wedding day so perfect.”

It is my pleasure to recommend Daniela as an exceptional professional who made the most important day

in our family life perfect! I do not believe there is anything she cannot do with regard to your wedding arrangements. From flowers to exclusive wedding venue, from transport to legal matters – she can do everything for you.

Apart from being great organizer Daniela is an outstanding personality! She is very intelligent lady who always puts your interest and preferences first. As my wife said: “After all we have been through Daniela has become like a member of our family”.  We are happy to recommend Daniela and her dedicated team to all those who want to make their wedding day ideal.

Daniela, thank you for making our hearts smile!

IMG_2888Buon Giorno!
I just wanted to take a minute, Daniela, to thank you for all of your hard work, patience and coordination throughout the past week for Ryan and Regina’s wedding. It was truly a memorable experience ~ one we will treasure for years to come.
I’d like to personally thank you for assisting me with all of the coordination with the musicians and for transportation to where I needed to be and when. God bless you! You had a lot of folks pulling on you and a million moving parts and you navigated all beautifully.
Please accept my thanks and gratitude.

Mille grazie, Shelly

I wanted to send all of you a little thank you email for making it incredible day and stay and of course without you this wouldn’t have happened the way it did. You have really happy couple here :))))

Best wishes

35_sposarsi_in_toscanaDear Daniela,

I truly cannot thank you enough for your hard work and patience with me. I know I’m not the easiest person to deal with but I did something right because you did a better job with our wedding than ever imagined possible. You are amazing and if there is anything I can do to help your marketing efforts, if you ever need me to be a referral, etc, please do not hesitate. I will be in touch when I’m back in Florence, but I promise not to make you miss important dinners with your boyfriend to see me. J

Christie & Chris

P.S. You need to raise your price. You are too good for what you charged. I would paid more. Love you!

Dearest Daniela,
It was a wonderful and an unforgettable event, much of it because of you.

Forget about the change, or else buy something that will remind you of us.

Surely we’ll be in touch and we’ll share with you the pictures and the video when we’ll have it.

We all love you and are very much grateful for what you did for us.

Kisses,

Meir & Shiraze

Jurgen & JaneWe are from the UK and had been in Italy some years before and fell in love with Tuscany. So when we decided to get married Tuscany was top of our list. We started off going to local UK travel experts, and quickly decided the best way for us was to hire an Italian expert. Apart from all the traditional wedding planning, there is a significant amount of legal logistics to get through. We found Daniela via google and selected her and one other Italian wedding planner. When we spoke to her we just knew she was the right person, with excellent English and great experience in wedding planning. Daniela organised everything from the legal side in Italy to organising the wedding ceremony, and the celebration dinner with the hotel we had selected. She organised the wedding celebrant, 2 photographers (who were all fantastic), flowers, coach travel to/from the airport, table decorations. The list just goes on, Some of the things that were available but we decided not to do were, string quartet, visiting hair dresser and make up artist. She was always efficient and friendly and occasionally bossy to make us get on with stuff! She had a flexibility on the amount of time she spent versus the budget we tried in vain to stick to.

If you are looking for someone to organise your wedding in Tuscany and the surrounding cities of Florence or Siena look no further than Daniela.

Watch out though you will need to plan around 6 months in advance if you want to remain as stress free as possible, and there is a lot of chasing around the English legal framework which you will just have to accept.

Thank you Daniela and team for the most beautiful Tuscan wedding.

Jurgen & Jane


Claudia-TarekI don’t think i have the proper words to express exactly how grateful I am to Daniela and her staff for organizing the most amazing and beautiful
wedding. I was researching wedding planners in tuscany a few months ago and came across Daniela. Once I spoke to her I immediately knew I wanted to work with her. I had spoken to other planners but no one else seemed to have her passion, her vision and personable skills. She was always quick
to respond to emails or calls. She was always very patient, quickto resolve any issues, she knew what I wanted before I even needed to say it.
I even made things difficult for her and requested to have an indian welcome dinner. And she took on the challenge and organized an amazing
evening with indian dancers, indian music and colorful, ethnic decorations. The wedding itself was something out of this world. People are still commenting how it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Her ideas and attention to detail are incredible. I cannot tell you enough how absolutely happy I was with Daniela and her team. I would recommend them without hesitation!!
Love love Daniela and her team!

Claudia & Tarek

Claudia-Tarek parentsIt was not easy for us, living thousands of miles away, to leave our daughter’s wedding organisation to a wedding planner. In addition to the distance problem due to work commitment we could, you could come to Italy only once and only for two days.
It is not easy to handle such a situation when you consider that there may be a thousand obstacles: the rooms to the guests, the confetti, the flowers, the ceremony, the location, the room … our luck was choosing DANIELA. … as a wedding planner of the whole event with great skills, elegance and charm was able to meet all our desires transforming our daughter’s wedding party into an unforgettable, magical and enchanted moment that will remain engraved in everyone heart for ever.

jo weddingSomehow writing this finalises the whole fabulous week which I never wanted to end! What can I say? Thank you so so much Daniela for organising the MOST perfect wedding, everything was truly wonderful, the venue, the lighting, the food, the flowers, just everything and then you managed to get the marque at the last moment! You truly are amazing!! We have had so many letters saying how spectacular the whole day was with everyone having their favourite moments! Emily and Shahram are still on their honeymoon in Mozambique and will be back on Tuesday so next weekend we will be reminiscing and looking at photographs of our perfect week in Florence! I hope you are well – you are probably busy with your next wedding and have forgotten us!! But don’t! We really would love to,stay in touch and remember, if you are ever in London to get in touch with us! I have, incidentally, rated you! Thank you again Daniela (words just don’t seem enough!) for such a dream week and the most glorious wedding ever!! Stay in touch! Lots of love Jo xxx

17_COVERLove on the Tennis Court , The Tuscan Wedding David and I would like to say a big thank you to Daniela from “The Tuscan Wedding” for all the hard work and effort she put into planning our perfect wedding just outside of Florence. We have just returned one week ago and family and friends are still commenting on what a beautiful location and day it was. When we decided to get married in Italy the biggest problem which we were going to face was where could we hold the wedding and also bring in a weeks family holiday for 60 guests. That is where Daniela came into the picture, of all of the event/ wedding planners she was the person which gave us the largest variety of locations, responded quickly during communications and also had a positive attitude and passion for her job. There was no doubting that I could not have organised such a perfect week without the help of Daniela, from communicating with the hotel to organise the multiple apartments needed and organising a welcome BBQ when the guests arrived. She was also responsible for putting me in touch with the florist ( who was fantastic ), organising the musicians, lighting technicians, translators and officials. She managed the set-up and running of the day well and the whole event went smoothy. Finally we wish you luck with your future weddings, yet we are sure they will all be a success as ours was ! Kindest regards Roxy & David

15_COVERSurprise!, The Tuscan Wedding Brenda: Here you go: “Every time I think back about Saturday evening, I want to cry from joy. It was a fabulous evening and an amazing gift! I’m still filled with excitement!” Stefano: During the event, I had this great feeling because I worked with people who love their job. They had a great balance between being professional and friendly. The attention to detail was the main reason the evening was a success. Everything was coordinated to our liking and taste. They are professional, knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. They also have the great ability to convey a feeling of control/order to their clients.

14_COVERWedding Destination in Tuscany, The Tuscan Wedding I need to say a massive thank you to our wedding Planner Daniela, she has made our lives so much easier during the whole planning of our wedding, over the many emails and Skype calls we have really got to know her and for those of you that haven’t spoken to her this isn’t just a job for her it’s a passion, so again thank you for everything you have done, we really couldn’t have done it without you! Daniela was fantastic in planning our special day, I would definitely recommend her to anybody that I know that wish to get married in Italy.

13_COVERPerfect Wedding in Florence!, The Tuscan Wedding Our choice to get married in Italy was completely random. I am originally Japanese and my husband British. When we got engaged earlier last year we both knew we wanted to have our wedding in Tokyo, the city where we met and fell in love almost 7 years ago. So when we visited Tokyo one March weekend and found a gorgeous place, we were immediately ready to start negotiating for the price – only that’s when the horrible 3.11 earthquake hit the city as well. With on going uncertainty in the area we eventually decided not to have our wedding in Tokyo and so we went from almost choosing a place to starting from scratch. I searched through the internet and found 5 wedding planners. Through exchange of emails and interviews over Skype with all 5 of them, I knew I found the one perfect planner when I spoke with Daniela from The Tuscan Wedding. Dani had it all. As a non Italian speaking person who knows nothing about wedding planning or the country, I knew I couldn’t afford to have any language barriers that may lead into “lost in translation”. Whilst I found many occasions of ‘lost in translation’ and also found myself repeating my questions and answers to others I had spoken to, I had no issues with Dani. Dani speaks perfect English, lived in the UK for a long time and also travelled around the world. What she also has beyond her language skills is also her ability to see what people want before they know it themselves! So for someone who is indecisive (me) and sometimes gets easily overwhelmed by many choices to make (also me!) she was perfect. From April to May, Dani and I exchanged emails every other day and spoke every weekend. We needed to find a location and we only had 5 months till the wedding day! In May I decided to fly from NYC to Florence to actually look at 5~6 locations we narrowed down to. Before I knew it I was on a plane to Italy (my husband couldn’t come with me due to work), met up with Dani and spent the next 3 days going from one location to another, food tasting, wine tasting, negotiating and trying hair dressers. Villa Cora was the second venue we visited on my second day in Florence. I knew this was the place the minute we drove into the parking lot. It had been under construction for nearly 4 years and it had just re-opened in early 2011. This place was by far one of the most beautiful villas I had ever seen – luxurious, new, modern yet classic, great attention to detail, excellent level of service and the food and wine they let us taste was to die for. Above all Villa Cora is located up in the hill surrounded by green but at the same time only 10 minute drive from the city center so I knew this would be very convenient for guests who were flying in from all over the world. My best friend who came with me said she saw spark in my eyes the minute I had walked into the villa. I knew it right there and then! After successfully deciding on the venue and going back to NYC with relief, Dani and I continued to speak every other weekend to decide on other details. Looking back at all the discussions we had, I realize what I appreciated the most about Dani was her ability to put me back on the right track. With so many choices to make and so much information to go through, there were times I was making decisions I never would have if I were in a less overwhelming state. Dani helped me rationalize and reminded me of all the things I was originally looking for, and even gave me advises that always started like this “honey, knowing you and knowing what you like, I would suggest…..” And this was coming from a lady who knew me for a few months! But Dani really did know it all. Late September came quickly. Our wedding was a small, cozy yet intimate one with only about 35 people. We had guests with 8 different nationalities flying in from 7 different countries – a truly international wedding! Our wish was one and only – that we get to spend as much quality time as possible with our closest friends and family, and not just the few hours on the wedding day. Dani helped me arrange dinner for both families to get together, coordinated a full day wine tour and a cocktail party the night before the wedding. The actual wedding day was absolutely amazing. No issues, no drama, everyone was on time, everything went as planned and everyone had a great time. We were extremely lucky with the weather too – warm, sunny and dry, much like the mid summer weather as opposed to late September one. Ceremony took place at 4pm in the Villa Cora garden with a string quartet that Dani arranged for playing in the background. My other best friend’s mother sang Ave Maria beautifully, and our niece threw flower petals and origamis on the isle. After the ceremony the guests were guided to the roof top of the main building and were taken surprise by the 360 panoramic view of the whole of Florence! Food and wine at the reception was perfect. Speeches were made, people danced and lots of alcohol consumed. The event finished around 3 in the morning with bunch of us jumping into the swimming pool! It was one fabulous day. There were a few last minute demands that were made to Dani (e.g. asking for microphone to be arranged in the garden the day before!) but she made them all happen and delivered on time. After the wedding they also put together video clips that she had originally planned to use for their web advertisement and made it especially as a gift for us. It was so nicely and professionally done – with music and poems playing in the background! We are truly grateful of the work Dani and her staff have put together to make this happen. We could not have asked for better wedding planner – so personal, thoughtful and are all about making the day a perfect one for the bride and the groom. If anyone is ever interested in getting married in Florence, we highly recommend The Tuscan Wedding!!

10_COVERWedding in a Vineyard, The Tuscan Wedding We fall in love the first time we met; we decided in few months that we wanted to get married as soon as possible. We wanted a dream destination! We considered few locations but at the end we decided to get married in Florence. We rented a villa in the country side and decided to have a holiday with our closest friends and family. I was completely lost at the beginning so many things to worry about and really not sure where to begin. So I started to look for a wedding planner that could look after everything. After few weeks of research I found a wonderful comment about a previous couple that got married with Daniela. I spoke to other wedding planners previously, but on our first call I got the sensation that they understood exactly what I wanted and what I was looking for! I wanted a simple and relaxed wedding; I am doing a very busy and stressful job and did not want to get stressed about organizing a wedding. In the past I have seen friends get very stressed. I arrived at my wedding very exited but relaxed. I only had to choose what I like, and not have to worry about anything. I would like to express my immense gratitude to Events Angels! They not only organized our weddings also took care of all other aspect of the organization, from the booking the accommodation to the activities of our guest and transportation baby sitter dog sitter! I highly recommend The Tuscan Wedding Staff, I don’t think our wedding could be been like this without you! PS I recommend to get married in Italy if you are a wine and food lovers 😉 !

9_COVERThank You!, The Tuscan Wedding I don’t know where to start but thank you so much!!! I could honestly not have asked or dreamt of anything more perfect!!! We had the best time and it was without a doubt the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect! And I can’t thank you enough for making it happen! I really enjoyed your help and support and most of all your suggestions. Lots and lots of love.

8_COVERMy Dream Wedding in Tuscany!, The Tuscan Wedding I used The Tuscan Wedding for my Wedding in Italy. I am French and Alex is British, so we did not want to get married in neither of these countries, we wanted an alternative one. We choose Tuscany as it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Everything was so special! I got to my wedding of course very exited but calm and relaxed, I knew Daniela had taken care of everything. They surprised me, with many things that were beyond what I was expecting. They made my dream come true! The decoration was stunning, complimenting my perfect location, a wonderful castle and I looked beautiful (other people said that to me 😉 I had a light designer that made the place so special and romantic!! I was a bit nervous about the flowers because I wanted to have something very particular, I couldn’t have asked for more. I felt like a princess. Thank you Daniela for supporting me over this, choosing you was the best decision of my life!
