M+A from Sweden – Lake Orta Wedding
“Varese Wedding has tailored a wedding ceremony specially for us. Laura has taken care of all our whishes and pay attention to all of our requests, comments and even financial burdens. From the location, to the program for the day, the menu, the accomodation for the guests, and every single detail involving the wedding have been chosen very tastefully and with care, despite the fact that we have arranged our wedding ceremony per email! By planning, we have made too early to many requests to her. Nevertheless, she has always listened to us and, as the months pass by, she has kept track on the dozens of changes we have made to our original plan. We are very grateful for her services and we recommend anyone who wants to have a great value for their money to hire her as the wedding planner”
S+A from Germany – Amalfi Coast Wedding
vielen dank für den unvergesslichen Tag den wir dank deiner Hilfe erleben durften. Deine Planung war perfekt und für mich ging ein Traum in Erfüllung. Das Hotel in St.Agata war traumhaft schön und das Wetter hat zu dem auch noch gepasst, vielen, vielen Dank für deine monatelange Unterstützung.
K+ O from Russia – Lake Como Wedding
“We had wedding ceremony and reception on 23 of August at the Lake Como (Villa Balbinielo). All ceremony, boat trip after it and reception were organized by Laura and her colleagues from Varese Wedding. We selected from 4 wedding agencies and from the very beginning we liked Laura’s quick reaction on our questions and wishes, she provided us with complete information almost instantly. Laura organized everything exactly as we wished – places for the ceremony and reception, boats, decorations, accommodation for the guests. She gave us different studios of videoperator and photographer to choose. They made excellent work, photos and video are brilliant, they were made with great taste. We had a little problem with hair-maker – she didn’t speak English well. But after call to Laura she found another very good specialist from Bellagio on the same day. I organized transfer for the guest from the airport to Bellagio myself, but few days before guest’s arrival I’ve got information from the transfer company, that their bus is too long to go to Bellagio. Laura helped me in this and organized transfer with another company. Varese Wedding made huge amount of work, there were many options such us aperitif in the villa with music, decoration of furniture for the ceremony and for the reception, musicians during reception and so on. Everything was organized on highest level and for sure it was impossible to do it without Laura and Varese wedding. They are professionals of the highest order.”
J+N from Uk – Tuscany
“We originally planned to get married aboard a cruise ship midway through a Mediterranean cruise whilst docked in Pisa. Three weeks prior to sailing, we were devastated to find out that we were unable to have the planned wedding. We desperately sought a wedding planner in Italy who could arrange a wedding for our 100 guests in this short time.
Our priority was to find someone we could trust as we had been let down so suddenly and had such a short time to organise the whole wedding. We found Varese Wedding over the Internet and they soon established themselves head and shoulders above the other companies due to their quick reply, great selection of options and obvious professionalism.
There were continuous emails and conversations over those few weeks and Neil and I constantly felt that our wedding was top priority and that their standards remained high despite our demands, last minute changes and extremely tight timescale.
One particular night I was talking with Laura for at least two hours, it was about 9pm when she told me it was actually her birthday and her husband had been patiently waiting to take her out to celebrate…I think this is a great example of her dedication in ensuring that our wedding day would be so special.
It is rare today to find a Company who goes over and beyond what is required. The day was organised to perfection and all our guests were blown away with what Varese Wedding had created for us. As it was so last minute, Neil and I had not seen anything first hand and everything from the location to the photographer was beyond our expectations.
The support and service that Varese Wedding offers from the first point of contact to the moment our last guest had left was exclusive wedding planning at its best!
May Neil and I take this opportunity to thank Laura and her team for giving us memories to treasure for all our lives…Our special day was breathtaking and all with thanks to you!”
C+C from Ireland- Lake Garda Wedding
“We had been told how beautiful the Lakes where for a wedding so we choose Varese Wedding as our wedding planner because it appeared to be the most professional. They were also very quick to respond to our emails. Laura arranged a great wedding for us in such a short time. We decided in February that we would like to get married it Italy this May. Laura arranged everything from the ceremony in the castle, photographers, champagne reception by a water fall on the lake and a beautiful reception at a restaurant in the mountains overlooking Lake Garda this was a spectacular restaurant and we would highly recommend it for any special occasion.”
C+J from USA – Lake Maggiore Wedding
We loved working with Laura. She was very prompt answering any questions we had and very patient. I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married in Italy. It’s not easy giving all control to someone you have never met, but she was wonderful and everything turned out perfectly! We had a beautiful wedding ceremony and a wonderful reception dinner! We couldn’t ask for anything more. We have a CD full of wonderful pictures to share with all our family and friends who couldn’t make it to Italy. The photographers were very professional and patient. We were impressed and above that, so were our mothers! Thank you for the best memories a bride could hope for. We will be back to visit beautiful Verbania and all the other gorgeous cities Italy has to offer.
Thank you so much for all your hard work!
G+P from Uk – Dolomites Wedding
Varese Wedding worked with us to organise our June 2016 wedding in the Dolomites near to Cortina d’Ampezzo. They were very clear with us from the start about the package they offered and the costs (as opposed to some other wedding planners). I had a Skype call at the start with Laura and she listened to all my ideas and she definitely got what we were looking for (even if I didn’t really know myself!). Every step of the way we knew what we should be doing and what was happening. When we added extra things we wanted late in the day it was no problem. Laura recommended photographers and florists for us, for example and she gave us a good amount of choices and was, again, really clear on costs. The day itself was beyond our expectations – the venue, staff, food, flowers, photographer, interpreter were all exceptional and they all worked together to give us an excellent day. Behind the scenes Laura and her team had clearly worked very hard to make sure they chose only the very best suppliers and to make sure everyone knew what they were doing. This meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday (and do lots of hiking) without stressing about last minute details. There is no way we could have had the wedding we wanted without Varese; in fact, they ensured we got to legally marry in a unique venue despite the Italian town hall initially declining our request. Varese’s service is worth every penny. I recommend them without any hesitation.
T+J from Us – Venice Wedding
Laura helped us with our wedding in Venice, Italy in September, 2015. Although Laura is not based in Venice, she was able to quickly present a lot of options based on our style preferences and budget. As we live in the states, we communicated with Laura mostly through email. She was responsive and patient with us, and able to find answers to our questions quickly. Laura never pushed for anything we didn’t want, but at the same time would tell us where to save or spend our money when we were concerned about the expenses. Also, we remember we were extremely disappointed when we found out from the hotel event manager the day before the wedding that they would likely move our outdoor canal-side ceremony into an indoor meeting room due to the high chance of rain. Right away, Laura reassured us that she’d negotiate with the hotel to at least keep the ceremony outdoors if the rain wasn’t bad. Her encouraging words really lifted our spirits! On the day of the wedding, initially we were a little worried that we would have problems with the final details without any rehearsal or face-to-face meeting, but everything turned out just perfect! Our guests continue to tell us how much they enjoyed the wedding. Planning a wedding abroad was not the easiest thing, but Laura and her team made the process as painless as possible.
A+M from Scotland – Piemonte Castle Wedding
“Many thanks Laura for organising our perfect day. You were a great support during the planning period. The wedding was fantastic, it was everything we hoped for and more. The venue was superb, it was such a romantic location. Thank you, for making the process so easy for us. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
M+M FROM UK – Lake Como Wedding
“Hi Laura, Thank you so much for making our wedding a fantastic and memorable day. Not only did mark and I have one of the best days of our lives but our guests did too. I have had lots of messages from them saying that the ceremony was fantastic, the boat ride was brilliant, the villa was beautiful and the evening reception was magical. The cake was amazing and I wish I was able to take it with me as it was so nice. The food was also really really lovely! No way in a million years could I have organised such a fantastic day and I really can’t thank you enough. Please put this on your website as you are the best, everything happened as you had planned!! I loved our wedding day and I will send you some pictures. My mother also sends her thanks as she thought you had done an amazing job. Thanks once again, I am more than happy for any of your clients to email me about your services!”
L+S FROM UK – Lake Garda Wedding
Hi Laura, When Stuart and I first thought about getting married Italy we didnt know where to start. I entered a competition out of Perfect Wedding magazine to win a wedding Planner through Varese Wedding. After entering I didn’t think anymore about it until I got the phone call to say I had won!! All I can say is thank goodness we did enter, you have been fantastic. I really don’t know how we would have managed without you. After meeting you in September 2009 I knew I didn’t need to worry. I dread to think how many e-mails I have sent you….I never once had to worry about you getting back to us. You were very prompt in responding to my e-mails – thank you. Our day was absolutely perfect and that is thanks to Laura and her team. The restaurant Al Corsaro was out of this world, the food was amazing, thank you for recommending it to us. Our flowers were beautiful, along with our table decorations and our photographer was great. You also saved us a lot of money which we are thankful for. Laura took all the stress and worry away so we could relax and enjoy our wedding day. Thank you Laura for making our wedding day so special we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much for all your hard work
B+L from Netherlands – Italian Alps Wedding
Varese Wedding did a great job planning our winter wedding in Livigno. When we started the planning in Holland we did not know anything about documents, papers and the italian law. From the moment we found Laura and agreed to do busniness togheter, she took us by the hand and arranged so many things for us. During our emailcontact we received a lot of suggestions and tips for the wedding. Also the arrangements for the Townhall, weddingcake and flowers where all perfect. Varese Wedding even arranged a surprise for us with or parents what was very nice. On the day itself we received a call from Laura, to check if everything was all oke. We would recommend Varese Wedding to our best friends and family for sure!
J+D FROM UK – Lake Como Wedding
“We got engaged on Lake Como, Italy in the Summer of 2007 and thought that it would be magical to bring over close family and friends to get married the following year. At the end of 2007, we contacted various companies in Italy to see whether we could organise the service and reception though them. As we knew exactly where we wanted to get married (Bellagio) and had a clear idea of what sort of reception we wanted (set menu and a private area for us), we found that most companies were not very flexible. There seemed to be a set package on offer i.e. we had to book everything through them (accommodation, flights etc) and this was also very expensive. Then we found our saviour, Laura. She was able to offer lots of suggestions, ideas and options. She worked completely around us and accommodated our every whim. I have to say that I (Jo) have been very particular about everything and I’m sure have driven Laura around the bend with all of my questions but it was all worth it. The day was spectacular! It exceeded our wildest dreams and more. Everyone had a great time and as you can see from the pictures, the views and weather were both amazing. We would highly recommend getting married in Italy. The restaurant made us feel really welcome, catering to every need and even made us a wedding cake (not requested). The service was very personal and the registrar was very friendly. None of this would have been possible without Laura and for her continued help and advice, we are very grateful.
C+R from Uk/Italy – Lake Como Wedding
Laura and Alessandro were fantastic in helping us organise our wedding, they went way beyond the call of duty picking up and putting up a lastminute gazebo when the weather turned nasty. We got married on Lake Como and even though we had thunder, lightening and a down pour Laura and Alessandro ensured that it was still everything we had dreamed it would be. The location was perfect – a beautiful garden with spectacular views of the lake and surrounding moumtains and we managed to have the ceremony outside in both English and Italian before the rain came down. Once the clouds opened we all ran inside to a fantastic meal where the staff were extremely attentive and helpful and the food just kept coming and coming! Whilst we enjoyed ourselves Laura and Alessandro decorated the gazebo beautifully with tealights and flowers and we managed to go back outside again for the cake and some dancing. We really appreciated all the hard work and effort that Varese Wedding team put into our wedding day, there wasn’t a request too difficult or a problem without a solution. They were helpful, full of ideas and obviously really wanted to make our day special. We will definitely remember it with such fondness and without their help it would have been such a stress to organize, needless to say it was just good fun.

We are back safe and sound, though a little weary from jet lag. We had a wonderful time in both Italy and Paris and are so glad that we chose to have our wedding overseas.We both wanted to thank you for all your help and advice while going through this process. It was all very much appreciated and meant that the wedding went smoothly and was enjoyed by both of us. Thanks again.
S+ E from Uk – Lake Maggiore Wedding
“We had the most perfect, magical day of our lives, it was what i imagined and more! All the guests who attended said it truly was a fairytale wedding and will take some beating! The catering and food was fantastic and the whole ceremony was perfect setting in the villa gardens. We thought in particular the minister that performed the wedding was very clear and made our vows feel special and easy to follow. The words were very romantic. The planning of the wedding was brilliant and the layout of the tables and ceremony were perfect. You have spent the last 18 months tending to my every request and need, you have been patient and made sure you didn’t lose touch with me always re assuring me that everything was being dealt with. We are very pleased that we got married where we did and we will be visiting italy on as many anniversaries as we possibly can to remember our perfect day.”
M+S from Belgium – Lake Como Wedding
“When we decided to get married in Italy we though it will be impossible. After meeting you everything was possible! We just had the best wedding we couldn’t imagine. Everything was just perfect, the chef was excellent and flexible couldn’t imagine better service in any part of Europe!
Thank you so much for making our dream a reality for giving us the chance to have the best wedding ever! Including the weather .. was a challenge to have a sunny and shiny day mid october … even that happened! The civil Ceremony in Varenna …was just like a fairytale!

Thank you so much and hope to see you sometimes when we are back in Como.
