“Patrick and I wanted to reach out to say ‘thank you’ again for our beautiful wedding. It’s been 1 year since we said I Do and to this day we are still in awe of how wonderful and beautiful our day turned out to be. You pulled off everything so eloquently and managed to capture our dream day to perfection.
We constantly look at our photos and reminisce on our days in the Cinque Terre. We feel so blessed to have been able to get married there and appreciate all you did to make it so magical.
 Again, many, many thanks. It was truly a dream wedding for us.”

Cinque Terre Wedding planning exceeded my husband and I’s expectations. It was truly the most magical weekend of our lives. I must admit it’s a bit daunting to plan a destination wedding, and you must have absolute trust in your wedding planner. Melina is the rockstar wedding planner you hope for! She is amazing to work with as she strives to make every detail of one’s Italian wedding vision come to life. Every step of the way of the planning we had fun, and she got us more and more excited about the daydream that awaited us!

Melina is also quick thinking and able to address any bumps in the road with grace and ease in real time. We truly got to enjoy every second of our wedding relaxed and feeling the love which surrounded us.

If you heart longs to get married in the breathtaking 5 Terre region look no further for a planner. Melina and her team will become the best decision you make in the process!

Almost 2 years ago, I had the crazy dream to invite all of our immediate family and a few close friends, to journey to Manarola to watch my love and I get married. On May 31, 2017 that dream came true!! The actual day was more beautiful and magical than I had imagined all because of Melina and her teams hard work. Communicating primarily through email, Melina was extremely organized with every aspect of our planning. Every idea I had- colorful wildflower bouquet and centerpieces, guitarist playing Unchained Melody (not on his playlist previously), changes to the menu, was handled with ease by Melina. Several other tasks and events were handled by Melina like gathering my group’s train tickets, ferry tickets and traveling with me to La Spezia for my hair trial. I cannot say enough positive things about Melina, her husband Matteo (who conducted our moving and love filled ceremony), and Sarah. Her suggestions for local vendors were spot on and the entire day passed by very smoothly. If you dream of a one-of-a-kind wedding in one of the most idyllic places in the world, I highly recommend contacting Cinque Terre Wedding!! We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Melina and will always think of our wedding day as one of the best days of our lives!

Melina at Cinque Terre wedding was wonderful to work with! Our whole May 2017 wedding weekend exceeded all of our [very high] expectations…everything was beyond perfect. We cannot sing their praises enough. It is not easy planning a wedding halfway around the world, almost entirely via email, but Melina was able to pull together our vision for each event perfectly. We would highly recommend Cinque Terre wedding for any event you are planning in Cinque Terre (engagement, elopement, wedding, Anniversary, etc.)!

New Zealand bride and groom, Dominique and Rick,  who celebrated their wedding in Monterosso in the Cinque Terre, wrote in a thank-you note:

“We had the absolutely best day ever – everything looked incredible and beautiful and just perfect. I’m sure every bride and groom hope that their wedding day is perfect and everyone always says to expect something to go wrong, or that there might something not 100% right.  Well I can honestly say that I hoped it would be perfect (not knowing exactly what “perfect” is either) but I wasn’t prepared to actually experience what perfect feels like in real life. If perfect is what happens in dreams then we were fast asleep!!!

Everybody has told me that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to! One of them even told me that she wouldn’t want to be the ones getting married after us…

It was a truly amazing experience for both of us and we’re so thankful for everything you did to make our time in Monterosso so special.

Thanks again to Matteo for being our celebrant – it was cool to have someone we’d met before!  And the words of the ceremony were just so beautiful!  Would it be possible to get a copy of them if possible?

Thanks also Melina for helping us find our family roots – I don’t think my family properly understood what we were doing, but afterwards they were so touched and amazed by what had happened – you helped us find our history!  It’s just so special, so thank you so much from the bottom of all of our hearts.

Thanks again for making our wedding so unforgettable and so special :)”

If you get the chance to meet Melina before committing to the planning like we did, you’ll surely get the impression that she does have a lot of experience doing what she does. She seems to have an answer for a lot of the queries we had. If she doesn’t, she did her best to find out for us. She also did everything to make everything work and come together on the big day for those last minute hiccups encountered.

Just do it! Melina is fantastic, such a lovely person, and really knows her stuff and the area well. She is well connected with all the services you could ever need and we felt just a special having an elopement as I’m sure we would have felt if we had the huge wedding. Thank you Melina for all your help! xx

Thank you for going above and beyond with helping us plan for lodging, the rehearsal dinner and the lovely afternoon at Buranco’s wine tasting and tour. We feel so blessed to have had our dream wedding and we thank you for helping us make it come true. We could go on forever… all of the details were just perfect, from the olive oil gifts, to the place settings. It really captured the beauty of the Cinque Terre. Our dinner blew us away, it was delicious. We can’t wait to come back!
Also thank you for the amazing wedding gift. It is a daily reminder of our special day. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything.

Whatever Melina did to pull off such a magical wedding was nothing short of a miracle. She made our vision come to life in a way that I could have never imagined. Even though I am a control freak, I felt comfortable and confident in the decisions that she made and felt like she knew best. I trusted her judgement, opinions and recommendations and by doing so, she created the most beautiful wedding. When we decided to do a symbolic ceremony with a celebrant, she gave us a choice of a few and her husband, Matteo, was one of them. It was a no brainer for us to choose him and boy are we glad we did. He conducted the sweetest, most beautiful, ceremony I have ever heard. There wasn’t a dry eye! She has a great reputation in the area and great relationships with the locals and the vendors. I highly recommend using the same restaurant and bakery as we used. The food was incredible and the desserts (instead of a wedding cake) were absolutely to die for. She and Matteo even came to meet us for a drink at our after party which was incredibly special. After corresponding with her for the months prior to our wedding, we felt like they had become friends. Our entire wedding party stood up and clapped for the two of them. It was special that everyone in our party recognised what a wonderful job they did with the ceremony and wedding planning. Hooray for Cinque Terre Weddings! We love you guys!

We had just the most wonderful trip for our destination wedding – from our accommodations, to the graciousness of the townspeople, to the wedding day, to simply being in Cinque Terre… It was more than we could have ever hoped for or dreamed of – and Cinque Terre Wedding made it happen. Every wedding has its rough patches, things not going as planned, but we can honestly say everything went perfectly. The only thing that could be considered a snag was when we lost track of time swimming at the marina in Corniglia the day of the wedding and we cut ourselves short on some time to do our hair and makeup – we were having too much fun! The group of 12 friends and family members we brought with us are just as in love with Corniglia as my husband and I are. Communicating with an ocean between us for nearly a year, actually meeting only a few days before our wedding, Melina and the whole team at Cinque Terre Wedding brought our dream to life and allowed us to share it with our dearest loved ones, and it brings tears to our eyes to this day. We are forever grateful! Thank you Cinque Terre Wedding!

Cannot rate Melina highly enough for her help with our wedding in Vernazza in June 2013. We were just two Brisbane locals who had the ideal of getting married in Cinque Terre and with one e-mail, our dream had started to take shape as a reality. Everything was planned to perfection and nothing was ever a problem. Melina made the whole process of us getting married in a foreign country an absolute breeze. Even more credit to her is that she still maintains in contact with us nearly two years after the wedding had occurred. If you are looking for a wedding planner for Cinque Terre, look no further – you have found her.
