Leigh & Alun Palazzo Cavalli Venice Wedding & Lido Waterfront Reception 8th June 2016

“Hi Jane, I just wanted to say thanks ever so much for your help with the wedding. It couldn’t have gone any better, we had the perfect day. Giorgia was also brilliant, and ever so helpful.  Thank you for everything, Leigh”

Sophie & Peter, Palazzo Cavalli Wedding & Waterfront Reception Venice, Italy 2nd May 2016

“We chose Ionian Weddings because of the good testimonials and we really cannot recommend Ionian weddings enough. Everything was planned perfectly and there wasn’t much for us to do at all which allowed us to enjoy our time. The day went without a hitch thanks to our destination wedding planner Georgia, and both her and Jane went above and beyond to make sure it was perfect for us. Our day was beautiful and our pictures are gorgeous (actually shed a tear when I received them!). We wouldn’t have done our wedding any other way…”

Laura & Shane, Venice Palazzo Cavalli & rooftop reception, Italy, 4th September 2015

“We just wanted to say a big thank-you to you and all who was involved in the wedding of our daughter on the 4th of September. Firstly: to the friendly staff at the ceremony at The Palazzo Cavalli in Venice, the ceremony went very smoothly. Secondly: to the water-taxi, gondola and car transfer staff, who were all friendly and helpful going from one area to another without which I sure some guests would have easily got lost. Thirdly: to all the staff at the reception venue who very very kind and nothing was too much trouble, everyone had a lovely time. Fourthly: A big special thank-you to the local wedding co-ordinator in Venice who was amazing, she had everything under control and was a big help in making the day go exceptionally well. We would recommend all of you to anyone who is considering doing this type of event in Venice.”

Tanya & Jon, Palazzo Cavalli & Lido Waterfront wedding Venice, 29th July 2015

“We have recently returned from being married in Venice. When we decided to marry abroad we were initially quite daunted about how to start the process until we spoke to Ionian Weddings.  From the moment we spoke to Ionian Weddings we knew we were in good hands. They made everything run so smoothly.  Our wedding planner informed us step by step what was needed from us, she even took care of the paperwork.  All we had to do was to inform her of what we wanted and it was all put into place for us.  Brilliant service –  from the correspondence we received beforehand to the guidance and support we received when in Venice. An amazing day in stunning settings. Venice is mesmerising and Lido, stunning. Thanks to everyone who made our plans and dreams come true!”

Charmaine & Robert, Venice Palazzo Cavalli Wedding and the Panoramic Rooftop Reception, 25th March 2015

“We had a fantastic day we’ll remember for the rest of our lives. It was a wet wedding day,  so we decided to pass on the gondola ride, and taking photos in San Marco square  as a result of the weather….. but despite the rain all day ,that did not dampen our spirit or affect our special day much at all. Our local wedding coordinator really really looked after us. She was an absolute star on the day and she’s been a great support throughout the entire day. She has helped us pull of a fantastic day. We have come away with tonnes of happy memories. Many thanks to you Jane for all your hard work in making our special day a real success. We know where to come if ever we decide to renew our vows in another location. Its a no brainer! “
