Hi there my friend,

Thank you for your congratulations and best wishes to us and to our family and friends.  We are so far enjoying married life although we do miss Florence and everything it had to offer.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect.  Everybody is still talking about it!  We were all so overwhelmed by the day - the Italian people are truly wonderful!  They sure do love a good wedding. 

The hairdresser was excellent - he was very professional and his attention to detail was second to none.  He was so precise and created hair styling for us that we all loved.  The florist was amazing - I could not believe the beautiful colours of the roses, of my bouquet and the other flowers.  She really found the most amazing vintage pink.  The town hall was the perfect venue and everybody was blown away by the luxurious materials and beautiful art - it was truly romantic.  The drinks and canapes afterwards were perfect - a cafe that Andy and I both love to spend time at during our trips to Florence.  Your mandolin player friend was brilliant - he just created a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and everybody enjoyed drinking and socialising on the terrace to his beautiful music.  As for the Vedetta, it was the most beautiful location we could have asked for.  You were absolutely right when you recommended it and how perfect it was for us.  The view was amazing, the food and wine was exceptional and the service was perfect!  We felt very lucky and spoilt by everybody. 

We are more than happy to provide any references you may need by telephone or e-mail.  We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anybody choosing to get married in Italy.  We always found you to be professional and supportive and always keen to find the right option for us.  Arranging a wedding from another country is more stressful but we felt that we were in safe hands and that we could rely on your help at all times.  We know that you really cared about our wedding and wanted us to have a wonderful day. 

I feel so lucky to have met you.  We could never have created a perfect day all on our own and we would never have had a day like we did here in the UK.  Florence will always have a special place in our hearts.  Thank you for making it all possible.

Please stay in touch - we hope to see you again soon.  You are a lovely person and thank you for everything, from the bottom of our hearts.

Take care,

Michelle and Andy Huggett (!!)
