About Lovesome Events
After years of living and working in different countries, I moved to Italy in 2010. I started Lovesome Events, a wedding planning service in Tuscany, because I truly believe Florence and the surrounding countryside are the perfect setting for a destination wedding.
Each bespoke event is designed paying special attention to your specific requirements, respecting your needs and wishes, as well as your budget. I will personally follow your event from start to finish. With Lovesome Events you will never find yourself working with a faceless office or an ever-changing consultant when planning your wedding in Italy. I will use my knowledge and understanding of Italy and my personal contacts to find the right venue and services for you, and to guide and help you through the bureaucracies involved.
We are available for private as well as corporate events throughout Italy, but our focus is on the Tuscany region. I believe it adds a special value to our services to be able to create and maintain personal contacts with the venues and supplies. This is only possible when you work within a specific geographical area. This way we can ensure the best prices, but even more importantly, knowing the suppliers helps guarantee the best possible level of service for your wedding in Italy.
Lovesome Events is based in Florence, London, and Helsinki, those being the three cities I call home. Being based in three different countries reflects our international nature, and most of all it allows me to meet and get to know my clients even before they arrive in Italy, as I am often travelling between these three cities. Keep an eye on the Lovesome Events blog, Facebook, or Twitter page to know when I'm next near you, or get in touch to arrange a meeting!
I speak fluent English, Italian, and Finnish, as well as snippets of several other languages, so communication will never be an issue!
A destination wedding in Italy is what many people dream of and there is a reason why so many of the rich and famous choose to organise their wedding in Tuscany.
Rolling hills of olive groves, vineyards, quaint chapels, beautiful beaches, and stunning views, Tuscany has it all. Not to mention locally produced high quality food and wine. The idea of planning a wedding in Italy may seem daunting though, especially so if your Italian isn't quite up to scratch. This is where a professional wedding planner can save you time, money, and a lot of stress. Whatever your dream is - an elegant wedding in a renaissance palace, a rustic vineyard reception, a romantic ceremony in a medieval castle, a laid-back beach wedding - we can make it a reality.
The wedding planning process starts with getting to know you as a couple and your vision for the day. This can happen either in person or via Skype or telephone. I will prepare a list of possible venues suitable for your style and budget based on our discussion, and we will choose the ones you like the most. We can also arrange to visits some of them in person to make the final choice. As your wedding planner, I will be your local contact for finding you the best suppliers for your event, and making sure no detail is overlooked. On your wedding day I will be there personally making sure things run smoothly so that you can relax and enjoy your wedding.
Because all couples and weddings are unique, Lovesome Events has created different wedding planning packages for different needs. If you need just a little help getting started with finding a venue or organising any another aspect of your wedding, but prefer to do most of the planning yourself, the Partial Wedding Planning package might be for you.
If you already have planned your wedding but you need someone there to make sure everything is under control on the day - no one wants to spend their wedding day worrying about if the caterer is late or locating the band who got lost on the way - a Day-of Coordinator service can be a good solution. You can read more about the different options below on Wedding Planning Packages.
When you plan a destination wedding in Italy, keep in mind many of your guests might travel from afar and some of them might want to take the opportunity to also experience the country and visit some of the sights. Lovesome Events will be more than happy to organise an itinerary for you and your guests for the days before or after the wedding. Possible activities include sightseeing, museum and vineyard visits, horseback riding in the Tuscan countryside, spa days, shopping trips, beach holidays… If you can think of it, I can organise it.

Wedding Planning Packages
Here are some planning packages to give you an idea of the wedding planning and coordination options we offer. All of the packages are flexible so if there is a service you require, starting from airport transfers to entertainment for children or even a wedding dog sitter, we can arrange it. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to planning a wedding in Italy, so drop me a line and let's find a solution that works for your needs and your budget.
Day of Coordination
This package is for couples who have already done the planning and booking, but would prefer to kick back and enjoy their big day. Often the duties of coordinating with vendors and services, making sure everyone is in the right place at the right time, and paying the final bills or picking up grandma's forgotten cardigan from the venue, fall on the family. With a Day of Coordinator you or your wedding party won't have to worry about those final details.
Included in the package:
- unlimited email/Skype support
- going through the preparations with the couple to make sure everything is in order (a month before the wedding)
- creating a timeline for the wedding day (a month before the wedding)
- meeting in person the day before the wedding or at a different time, should the couple wish to do so

- coordinating the events of the wedding day as agreed with the couple
- dealing with any emergencies that might arise during the day
- taking care of any final payments due at the end of the wedding reception
