When Gemma and Andy began planning their wedding, they knew of the perfect location already - “After a city break to Rome, we decided Italy would be a perfect location and we needed help to make this happen. We chose Travel Counsellors and were introduced to Donna Waddington who looked after us throughout.”
After meeting with Donna, Gemma and Andy decided on a location and venue for their big day, “We went for Villa del Sogno in Gardone, Lake Garda. Donna explained what documentation we would need to get married and organised a wedding planner in resort, who really made us feel at ease when we got there.”
Destination weddings have a lot of benefits, including incredible weather and a stunning backdrop for your ceremony – but Gemma was initially concerned about organising travel and accommodation for her guests. She need not have worried, “Donna helped with all of this and found hotels close to the venue to suit all budgets.”
There was just one thing left to organise for the Palmers’ wedding, “It’s the little things that can make all the difference when planning your special day. We wanted a classic Fiat 500 as our wedding car, and we were overjoyed when Donna made this happen.”
After Gemma and Andy’s big day, they enjoyed a honeymoon exploring Florence and Venice, with all the travel and accommodation organised by Donna. The Palmers would definitely recommend a destination wedding to anyone considering getting married abroad, “We enjoyed our wedding so much and now have a future anniversary venue with lots of great memories. Thanks Donna, and the whole team at Travel Counsellors.”
