A testimonial - thanks for a wonderful wedding in Tuscany
Dear Silvia, we want to thank you for everything you did for our wedding at your beautiful place in Tuscany. You were a marvel getting everything together. We and all of our guests had a wonderful time! Thanks you so much!
Sara and Darragh O'Riordan
Silvia provided the most amazing wedding we could have imagined at the beautiful La Ghiandaia. From the first instance we met Silvia, we knew we had found the friendliest, most efficient, wonderful host and wedding organiser. Silvia took care of all the wedding details from flowers, to photographer, to car hire, to waiting staff. Even putting on her chef's hat to put together the wedding buffet! Everything was arranged to perfection, she understood our needs immediately, negotiating prices on our behalf and recommending excellent local services. We could not have wished for a more exquisite wedding or breathtaking location; nor for a host who felt more like a member of the family!
