CIAO, I’M JULIE & I LOVE CREATING MAGICAL WEDDING EXPERIENCES THAT WILL STAY WITH YOU, YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS FOREVER..
Before becoming a wedding planner in 2005, I was a luxury travel agent, specialising in helping couples with their honeymoon. This is when I began my love-affair with Italy and realised my passion for event planning and finding the perfect places to get married & stay in this wonderful country. On a holiday to Italy in 2002, I discovered, one of Italy’s best-kept secrets, the twinkly sea-side town of Santa Maria di Castellabate. It is perfect for a wedding, and where most of ours take place.
My to-do list is never ending, but I would not change it for the world. I am with you, every step of the way and this combined with language skills and expert local knowledge, I will become your friend, confidante & personal concierge into Italy’s best-kept secrets.
I am based in the UK during the winter months, so lots of time for cosy chats & then I head over to Italy for the weddings in the summer, so I am with you every step of the way.
I love anything that sparkles and I believe in a no fuss approach to wedding planning.
By getting to know you & understanding your vision, the possibilities of a romantic Italian wedding are endless.. Want to know more?
I believe that Italy is the most romantic and magical country in the world.
There is a little corner of Santa Maria (a sleepy seaside town that I discovered 16 years ago) where I often stand and look back at the town, and sigh. I will tell you the exact spot.
As the sea crashes against the ancient shoreline, I gaze at the crumbly pale pink palazzos that seem to tumble down to the sea. As the sun sets, (I promise that you will never have seen such beautiful skies), that is when the lights of the tiny village that sits above Santa Maria, start to light up.
It is no wonder I call this place Twinkle Town. Santa Maria di Castellabate will steal your heart for sure.
We are also head over heels in love with Puglia, Amalfi Coast & Venice.
CREATING THE MAGIC
IT STARTS WITH A CALL
Tell me how you fell in love with Italy and how you envisage your wedding day. Our first chat is nothing heavy, just 20 minutes (but probably longer, once we start chatting).
It’s a great chance to see if we are a good fit. I believe everything is about connection and if I can’t help I will know someone that can.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
My Secret Italy weddings are bespoke & beautifully tailored to suit our requirements and your budget.
We don’t believe in package style weddings. as it goes against everything we believe in. It is your day, and you get to choose all the lovely details to make it a day that is as unique as you are. I will take your vision, sprinkle a little My Secret Italy magic, & put together a unique proposal for your wedding that will enchant & delight you.
BELLA ITALIA IS WAITING
When you arrive in Italy, I’ll be the first to welcome you with a glass of Aperol or a cold Peroni. We only ever take on one wedding per week, so we’ll be with you every step of the way, making your Italian wedding experience truly magical that your family & friends will remember forever.
YOUR HONEYMOON IN ITALY SHOULD BE AS SPECIAL AS YOUR WEDDING. OUR COLLECTION OF CHARMING HOTELS WILL INSPIRE YOU.
