Taormina, Saturday 9 October 2021 - Oxana and Neil, London, UK
We have had the most amazing wedding and loved Isabella’s relaxed and professional approach.
Highly recommended to anyone, Isabella will listen and adopt to your needs and ideas.
We didn’t have to worry about anything on the day, all was taken care of by Isabella and the team involved in catering, flower arrangements, music, bridal car and photographer.
Thank you ever so much, the day we will never forget!

Taormina, Tuesday 5 October 2021 - Kirsty and John, Essex, UK
We instantly clicked with Isabella from the first emails we sent each other.
Isabella understood what type of wedding we wanted and listened to how we wanted our special day to be.
Not only did Isabella plan our wedding but she planned our whole day twice as it was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Isabella was amazing and took the stress away from us to plan our wedding a year and a half later.
Not only is Isabella the best wedding planner she is also a dear friend who we will keep in contact with forever.
Isabella and her husband Tony are very welcoming in their pub (which serves the most incredible food).
Not only did Isabella plan our wedding but she helped us throughout our whole holiday when it came to booking taxis and advice on trips and excursions.
We would highly recommend Isabella to anyone planning their wedding in Sicily!

Taormina, Thursday 9 September 2021 - Laura and Joe, Bedford, UK
We were lucky enough to stumble across Isabella via an Instagram connection with a previous bride.
I had been searching and trying to figure out how on earth we could possibly carry out our Taormina dream wedding and I nearly gave up hope, until I found her.
It isn’t easy to navigate through it alone, Isabella’s help is priceless!!
This wedding has been 3 years in the making, due to Covid… We felt even more fortunate to have had Isabella after all the dramas with Covid. She guided us through ever changing restrictions but also made it really easy and supported us so much through the very turbulent times of postponing and minor issues that came with it.
We feel she went above and beyond her job role and done more than was required to ensure we got to Sicily and could still have our dream wedding.
She was very organised and helpful, she constantly communicates, she makes really good suggestions and offers choices. She also took many of our ideas and visions and made them a reality.
We never ended up having trials before the wedding due to Covid, initially this was not something I would have felt comfortable with, but I really did not need to worry!
My advice to the future bride, let the surroundings speak for themselves and trust me it all falls into place when you have Isabella there.
We got married at Villa Mon Repos, the food was unbelievable and the wine was lovely too.
The staff there are so professional and work really well with Isabella.
We had a civil ceremony prior to our symbolic and we feel privileged to have done both and had Isabella there on both occasions. We never felt stressed or worried and she is wonderful company.
She took us around herself to all appointments needed and was only ever a WhatsApp message away!
The wedding exceeded our expectations and that of our guests. Isabella spent time speaking with us, our families and our friends and everyone adored her as much as we did.
Isabella will stay with us for the rest of our lives she had a huge positive impact and made our dream come true, we will forever be grateful.
Not to mention it’s a family affair!! Tony, Isabella’s husband has a bar in town.
Every time we visited, or one of us guests popped in they were made to feel like family and the welcome you get from them, it’s home away from home!
Truly gorgeous, energetic, positive people and friends for life now!

Taormina, Wednesday 11 August 2021 - Mark and Brid, Wexford, Ireland
Myself and my partner made the decision in Spring 2020 to elope to Sicily.
I sent emails to several planners, (some of whom still haven't replied!).
From the start, Isabella's communication was impeccable.
Her reply included her costs, links to different venues depending on civil/hotel/religious etc.
Over the following days and weeks, Isabella gave recommendations for hair, makeup, photographer, flowers, venues. She was able to send on photos of previous weddings where the same photographer/hair/make up were used.
While sending off our paperwork, Isabella was always at the other end of the phone to assist in filling in details.
She was able to organise witnesses and booked accommodation for us in Taormina Centre.
In March, we realised our June date seemed unlikely for travel due to Covid so we made the decision to move our trip to August.
One text to Isabella and she had all the vendors changed to the new date within a few hours.
I am naturally an 'organiser', but when travelling to a country, where you don't speak the language.
For help with the paperwork and recommendations of local suppliers, Isabella was the best addition to our Wedding.
The day that we arrived, we visited Isabella, her husband Tony and son Mattia in their bar.
They took time to sit with us and we had great chats with them all. We immediately felt part of the family.
We stayed in a B&B owned by Isabella's friend Evelyne. Between the two of them, we didn't have to lift a finger. Whenever a decision was made to book a taxi, a meal etc they communicated between themselves and organised everything for us.
We traveled from Ireland, just the two of us but honestly felt so happy and well looked after on our trip.
They became our family for the duration of our time in Taormina.
My husband even bought some trousers for the wedding the day before and Isabella organised for a seamstress to call to our B&B to collect them, and return them the morning of the wedding.
Such a beautiful location for a wedding, our photos are phenomenal-we have our preview photos and they are amazing, captured our day so perfectly.
We were so relaxed the morning of, knowing that there was nothing to organise, Isabella had it all.
She even organised music and prosecco for the ceremony.
She met me at the taxi, provided me with a fan on a day where Sicily hit high 40degrees!, took my bag, rings and allowed us to enjoy the moment.
Similarly, after the ceremony, I was able to leave everything there for Isabella to collect and bring along.
It allowed us to go with the photographer and get some of those great shots!
She got some great shots on the phone too to tide us over until we got the photographers pics two weeks later.
We are so happy that we decided to get married the way that we did.
The day was just perfect. So relaxed and the best version of a wedding day.
Thank you so much to Isabella, her family, Giulia (Hair & makeup) and Tatiana (photos).
We hope you and Tony get to Ireland soon for a visit!

Taormina, Monday 2 August 2021 - Cordelia and Giancarlo, Zurich, Switzerland
We absolutely enjoyed our wedding and will never ever forget this wonderful day in Taormina.
Thanks to you this was all possible.
In this difficult phase with Corona, we managed to plan our wedding.
No one knew how the situation was going to change and if we could really pull through with the wedding.
Thank you for all your help, your guidance and all the organisation.
Tony and Mattia helped a lot.
They both did a great job at the wedding. Giancarlo said Mattia was able to support him mentally at the church, which he really appreciated.
It’s nice your family helps you out with the wedding ceremony and the wedding parties.
The wedding was amazing and very special for us and our guests still talk about this magical day.
We can't thank you enough.
Cordelia and Giancarlo
