what do couples say about our work
Adelaide & Federico
Santa made our wedding experience perfect! She was extremely efficient and very helpful, providing us with a strong aesthetic and plan for the wedding. She was very proactive and thought very carefully about how to make the wedding as beautiful as possible. She came up with lots of diverse and inspiring ideas for floral arrangements, which she expertly did herself on the day. She was also very open to suggestions, and when we didn’t love something, she worked hard and researched other options that were more suitable. She made our wedding day so special and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in Puglia. She is a truly wonderful planner and stylist.

Santa is an absolutely amazing wedding planner whom I would highly recommend to couples wishing for a magical wedding! We are an Asian couple from London and Santa helped organize our 3-day extravaganza of a wedding in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. She was available to us at all hours and treated our wedding like her own. She carefully crafted a portfolio of venues which was tailored to our style and was always flexible with our ever-changing preferences. Santa quickly learnt about our cultural events in order to give us a wedding that truly represented us. She spent a lot of time giving us numerous options for vendors and liaising with them to get us the best prices. It wasn’t an easy task but she always did it with a smile. Also as an added bonus she never took a commission, so we really felt like we could trust her.
During the 3 days, she had everything under control and we simply sat back and enjoyed the party. Our wedding was better than we ever imagined, and to this day our guests still regularly say that ours was the best wedding that they have visited. Overall, the best quality about Santa was that she cared so much about our wedding and so she ensured it was executed to the highest standard, which we felt we wouldn’t have got anywhere else.

Santa was an amazing wedding planner and day-of coordinator who delivered the wedding of our dreams! She was full of innovative and unique ideas which made our day magical. All her suggestions were spot on and I am glad I heeded her advice. It was truly her creative ideas about special details to incorporate - adding ribbons and candles to the décor, a vintage car, etc. that took our wedding to the next level. She is not only a planner but also a décor mastermind with her own collection of items that she is happy to lend to brides. Santa has a wealth of knowledge about the Puglia region - the pros and cons of various wedding venues, suggested hair and makeup providers, musicians, rentals - you name it! She always provided comprehensive details and an array of options to choose from within our budget. On a personal level, Santa was so fun and personable. Working with her was seamless and she went above and beyond to help us - she was clearly very invested in the success of our day. For instance, Santa took on the task of sourcing local snacks for our gift bags, met with us in person at the venue when we visited Italy, printed all our wedding stationary, and personally assembled all our dinner cards and so much more.
Being so far away in a different country, it is easy to feel apprehensive about the details - but Santa took all the stress and anxiety out of the experience of being a destination bride. My husband and I are extremely grateful to Santa for everything - our guests are still raving about how awesome our wedding experience was and we couldn’t have pulled it off without Santa! Our deepest thanks - Yolande & Johnny.
A simple thank you is not enough to express our gratitude for all that you did to make our day as perfect as it was! Our wedding day far exceeded our expectations, and it was all thanks to you. We both felt so relaxed and stress-free on the day as we knew you had everything under control, and that you cared about our day just as much as we did, if not more. Thank you for going above and beyond to make our day fit to our style and within our budget. Your enthusiasm, attention to detail and creativity is unmatched.
You are absolutely incredible at what you do, and we are so grateful to have found you, and that you were part of our day.

I could not recommend Santa at italianboutiqueweddings.com enough, she not only makes sure your big day is extra special but the pure passion and excitement she brings to your wedding make the whole journey such a joy! She will understand exactly what you request but also give you unique ideas that will make your wedding one to remember and one which has not been created before. Santa also made us a surprise photo and guest signage area which was beautiful, thank you Santa :) She was not only a wedding planner but became a friend, easy to talk to and all-round warm-hearted person. Having Santa meant, my husband and the bridal team could be fully engaged in the moment, moments we will cherish forever.
Santa - the wedding magician, from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for everything you did! If you want your dream wedding to become more than a dream then you need Santa at italianboutiqueweddings.com. Thank me later!

Once my husband and I decided that Puglia was where we wanted to get married, we wasted no time in going to view the beautiful Masseria Grieco. Once we had the venue and date secured, it suddenly dawned on us that we needed a wedding planner. I discovered Italian Boutique Weddings on Instagram and was instantly in love with the beautiful images. We can honestly say, investing in a planner as great as Santa, was the best decision we made. Santa took care of everything on the day, which allowed us to enjoy ourselves completely stress free.
Santa, where do we begin. Thank you for being so wonderful. Our wedding day was perfection, we loved it, and couldn’t have done it without you. You were so personable and genuine from the beginning and we felt like you always had our best interest at heart.
Your advice, help, guidance and organisation throughout planning our wedding, made the entire experience stress free for us. We were able to plan our wedding during a global pandemic, with ever changing guidelines!
You truly remembered every last detail to make our day so special. I remember you providing myself and my bridesmaids with make up blotting paper whilst having our pictures done - amazing! Our guests have not stopped telling us how beautiful everything looked and how it’s was the best wedding they have ever been to. We are so thankful for the hard work yourself and the suppliers made and we will be forever grateful.

Good morning Santa, we just wanted to say thank you so so much for the most amazing day yesterday. Phil and I had so much fun with the car and the ceremony set up was beautiful. The flowers we just perfect and so unique, the table looked amazing we could not stop looking at it. You are so kind and worked so hard to make it special. Thanks again, Eleanor & Phil
Santa - now we have finally just come back down to earth we wanted to send you a message to thank you x 1 million for giving us the most PERFECT wedding day ♥️ I think all the drama we had in the morning with the rain made the day even more perfect in the end - as we truly did have the wedding of our dreams. The day was absolutely seamless and every tiny detail we had planned and imagined happened without us even realising. So many of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to and that is testament to you and the whole team’s hard work. Soooo THANK YOU!!! I hope now as wedding season comes to a close, you manage to get some rest 💕 lots of love - Ellie & Lewis

Her passion for what she is doing was obvious from the first time we contacted her. The way she gave attention to every single detail made us trust her our wedding. It was not an easy job though. Our wedding was a last minute decision, we wanted it to be done in Italy while we are leaving in Greece, there were travelling restrictions and of course COVID walking around and we wanted to be just the two of us celebrating love and new beginnings while doing what we best like to do: travelling. Thanks to Santa, our road trip ended to the beautiful town of Alberobello, having a super romantic ceremony where she made us blush, laugh and cry by reading and reminding us our love story in front of a lovely scenery full of beautiful and carefully selected and synthesized flowers. The ceremony followed by a delicious wedding cake in a beautiful rooftop, a very fun privet cooking class and a wonderful dinner for two. The final result was much better than we had even imagined. Fortunately, there are amazing photos to see and relive that moments. Santa, thank you for everything. We wouldn’t change a single thing.

Santa is the most warm hearted person we have ever met.
She made our dream wedding come true. What ever we wished for, she made it.
Even in busy moments she was allways relaxed and with a great sence of humor.
As a bride I couldn't be better taken care of! Especially her sence of taste and her eye for aesthetic is unique. She had so great ideas I would have never thought of!
Since we only have been to Puglia a couple of times before our wedding, we didn't know where to start. But Santa took our hand and showed us the nicest areas and inspirations. What ever we needed she helped us! She went way beyond a normal weddingplaner.
I definitely can assure, if you have Santa as your wedding planer you really can relax and enjoy every moment of the step to your wedding and during your wedding. She will guide you like an angel in taste, fun, and beauty!
Not only that she is a great Weddingplaner, she is also a great friend.
Gemma & Anthony
We love Italy and made the decision to get married in Puglia, a region we had never visited before in a small and intimate wedding. It was so important to us to find a wedding planner who we connected with us, who understood us and who we felt totally at ease with. The moment we spoke with Santa we knew she would fulfil all of these things. Her warmth, passion and genuine kindness and love of making wedding dreams come true just shone through. Santa just ‘got us’ and she created the most perfect day which totally reflected us as a couple. She made a small family wedding of 12 people feel like a huge event. Santa felt like one of our family on the day, she has become a friend and we can honestly say there is not a single thing we would have changed. We talk about the day all the time, our family were blown away by the attention and care to detail. We would do it all again tomorrow if we could and feel so incredibly grateful to have started our married life with this day.
