In the full wedding package, our aim is to assist in ascertaining and achieving your vision. Through that, we’ll provide a choice of venue and suppliers suited for your specific needs. We will arrange the relevant appointments, and provide supplier coordination and confirmations.
Throughout the planning, you’ll receive a timeline and detailed schedule for your wedding. We’ll handle the RSVPs and dietary requirements, as well as update and maintain the wedding task list and budget. On the day itself, we’ll handle the wedding day coordination so you won’t have to worry.
From beginning to end, 24/7 phone and email support will be available to you.
In the partial wedding package, you’ll receive a meeting 4-6 weeks prior to your big day. We’ll manage all outstanding wedding admin, as well as identifying all possible issues to find solutions for you. If there are any last minute designs, we’ll work through them together.
We’ll assist with supplier and payment schedules to ease some of the stress. On the day itself, we’ll handle the wedding day coordination so you won’t have to worry.
Starting from the initial meeting, you’ll receive unlimited phone and email support up to your wedding day.
The month-of coordination is exactly what it sounds like. We’ll meet up 4 weeks prior to your wedding, and assist in contacting the venue and suppliers on your behalf. We’ll provide each of them with a detailed ‘On The Day’ schedule, and coordinate with the venue to ensure that everything is laid out exactly as you envisaged.
On your wedding day, we’ll provide discreet coordination so you can relax and enjoy without stress. We’ll also prepare a Wedding Emergency Kit for your special day, although we hope you won’t need it.
If you’re happy to take care of the coordinating but need help finding a unique, one-of-a-kind location, plus the best in quality suppliers, look no further.
You’ll get a shortlist of unique locations to match your vision for the day. In addition to that, we also offer a list of trusted vendors and suppliers.
Ardita Mehja Stokes has the restless spirit of a gypsy, with a passion for adventure and exploration and a background in beauty and the arts. She was born in Albania and raised between Europe and Australia, contributing to her unique style. Her diverse upbringing helped her gain an understanding of different cultures and master various skills, which she now uses to add a special unique touch to her events.
Ardita’s first brush with wedding planning was when she planned her own beautiful wedding in Rome. She loved the journey, the planning, the fact that she created the luxurious wedding of her dreams, an event to be truly remembered. This inspired her to create the same luxury, memorable experiences for others. Devoted to meeting her clients’ expectations and bringing their dreams to life, Ardita will take the time to get to know you so she can personalise your special day so it’s a reflection of you.
In her down time, you can find Ardita out and about, sampling some of the fine Roman produces across the best restaurants and travelling between estates visiting vineyards and local olive groves, discovering new possibilities for you.
I would be thrilled to meet you over a cup of coffee to discuss your once-in-a-lifetime event! I’m based in Rome, but travel often to work with amazing couples around Italy.
