‘Planning a wedding in Italy while we were in England was never going to be easy but Olivia always made us feel like everything was in control and we had nothing to worry about!
Our wedding day was everything we had wanted – simple, elegant and perfect for our small party. Every guest commented on how beautiful everything was and we couldn’t have done that without Olivia and her team.
Thank you for giving us our dreams!’

Olivia and her team were wonderful to work with. My wedding was on Elba island in the Tuscany region of Italy. I live in the United States and she is in Florence so we were only able to communicate via email and skype which can make things very difficult when planning a wedding, especially because of the different time zones. From the beginning, she made me feel very comfortable hiring her without having a face to face meeting. She came off as professional and experienced but not pushy which I liked.
She helped me create my vision with patience and hard work. Olivia has great taste and made wise recommendations that I am glad I followed. She was very honest and open about vendors and pricing.
When I finally met her, it felt like I was embracing an old friend. She went above and beyond my vision and made my dream wedding come true. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Olivia and her team were amazing with helping us plan and carry out our wedding. They were organized and efficient and everything went perfect during the entire weekend. From the cocktail hour in the city center, to the wine tasting, to the wedding itself, they made it seem effortless and all of our guests were very impressed. We highly recommend her.

Olivia has an amazing eye for detail coupled with hard work and undeniable talent. No request was too big or too small. She listened to all of ideas and our vision for they day, then added so many little touches and ideas to our plans that made HUGE differences.
On the wedding day, there is no words to explain our graditude towards Olivia, she took complete control of the vendors, putting the finishing touches around our venue and most importantly for us, took away any worries we could have had on the day and helped make the atmosphere of our wedding relaxed and calm! She was a welcome face the morning of the wedding.
Olivia has been a dream to work with and we were honoured to have her at our wedding, not just as our co-ordinator but as a friend!

If you’re looking for a wedding planner in italy—and tuscany specifically- olivia is your woman. She is a true artist: creative, resourceful and a terrific communicator.
She has exceptionally good taste, especially if you’re into the romantic vintage look, and easily forges relationships with all sorts of vendors. She is likable, quick on her feet, and can help you prioritize, think– and rethink– about what’s really important to you, especially if you’re on a budget. That’s valuable.
Most importantly, she is always available for her clients.
She was of great emotional support to me. She never lost her temper with my 1000 calls and was always direct and ready to talk things through. Her delightful and professional presence truly calmed me down and made the whole journey fun. I highly recommend her!

Val d’Orcia 30.06.2018

When dreaming up ambitious plans for our wedding weekend in Val D’orcia, we knew that we needed someone special to bring it to life – a person with not only impeccable taste, expert knowledge of Tuscany and a bespoke approach to weddings, but also someone on our wavelength, with positive energy and integrity.
We gave her a seemingly impossible brief, full of big and small details we wanted to be incorporated in our wedding weekend, and she executed every single one of them beautifully. Our wedding was a blend of Russian – Jewish – Italian – Catholic traditions, and it was crucial for us to have personal touches permeate our event.
This global team worked together beautifully, and Olivia made it a seamless experience for us to work with over 12 suppliers.
She never once told us something was impossible or too late, and never missed a deadline herself. She continuously surprised us with big and small finds from local vintage stores to bring that extra special something to our day.
We were beyond speechless and very grateful to have trusted the right person with our special day.

Where to start…
We first met Olivia when we went out to Tuscany to see the venues we had chosen. From the moment we met she understood exactly what we were after. It was easy to bounce ideas off each other and explain our ideas and dreams. From that Olivia helped us put those dreams into reality explaining how we could make things work and get the look we wanted. Despite more then a year in the planning we kept in contact regularly and would keep making progress bit by bit rather than in big unmanageable chunks.
When it got to the big day Olivia was nothing but calm and took everything in her stride with everything carefully planned. She was great to have around and worked without us even knowing she was there. She listened to our requests and made our dream wedding come true. We will be forever thankful and would definitely recommend anyone to work with Olivia to arrange the perfect Wedding.

Olivia was our angel throughout the planning process and on the day. We were perfectly in sync since our very first chat. We just got on really naturally: Olivia just always knew how to transform our vague, unspecified thoughts on what we liked into concrete, real styling ideas and coordinate with other suppliers to make things happen. She’s respectful of your own ideas but not afraid to suggest more daring touches, even small details that can completely transform the aesthetic of the day. What I loved most about having her on board was the fact that all of her suggestions had a really original and special touch – nothing was ever boring or seen a million times before. Her presence made a huge difference, and I cannot recommend her enough.

“Olivia is an amazing wedding planner that really helped take the stress out of our big day and let us enjoy what we can easily say was the best day of our lives. We spoke with a number of planners and Olivia was a breath of fresh air as she immediately understood our aesthetic. Leading up to our wedding she gave us great advice and put out fires that we didn’t know existed. We had rain throughout the day of our wedding, and needed to make some last minute adjustments, including switching to our Plan B dinner setup. Thankfully the rain stopped just before our ceremony and we were able to have it outside as we were hoping for. Throughout this, Olivia was very calm, versatile, and took care of all the little details to ensure we had the best day possible. Looking back, even considering we had to go with our Plan B dinner, we wouldn’t change a single thing, and much of that is thanks to Olivia.”
