HIGH TOUCH YET MODERNISTIC SERVICE
The wedding planning journey is as much as important as the wedding day itself. We have honed our skills to offer personalised and bespoke service, where our clients can enjoy every step of planning their wedding abroad. That is why we don’t have wedding packages, because we tailor our working process to each couple, so all our clients have the peace of mind that they are fully in control of their budget and every detail.
We love meeting our clients in person, however, many of them are busy couples who travel a lot and have a little time for meetings face to face. Our made to measure approach is to use all modern online applications like Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp and to be in touch at all times throughout the journey.
Planning the day of your life has to be a fun, relaxed and happy time for you both. It’s my honour to introduce myself to you, so please visit “Meet Mariella” page where you will learn more about me, my working style and how I can help you with planning your gorgeous wedding in Bulgaria.

Each wedding is a mini production where we tailor to all elements of your personality as a couple, adding sophistication and engaging all the senses. You and your guests will go through a remarkable, enjoyable and “never to forget” experience.
Joyful exclamations like “this is the best day of my life”, “absolutely fantastic wedding”, “you have surpassed all our expectations”, “the most beautiful wedding I have been “ are just a few of the comments we normally hear on our events.

Since your office is based in London, how do you manage to organise weddings in Bulgaria?
Our wedding agency is one of the first found in Bulgaria. In 2004 we opened our first office in Sofia, and until 2009 we have always maintained an elegant showroom. Now, as we are based in London, UK, the presence of a physical office in Bulgaria no longer needs it.
We have developed a great business relationship with some of the best venues and wedding services providers, which is crucial for the high level of our service. We don’t need to have face to face meetings with them, as we have been business partners for decades.
Do you have a contract?
Yes, we have a contract covering all aspects of our business relationship. Officially our service starts as soon as the contract is signed and the deposit payment is made.
How do we pay for your services?
All payments for our service have to be transferred to the company bank account. No checks or cash options are available.
The payment has to be made in 2 instalments – 50% when the contract is signed and the second payment, a month before the wedding.
We don’t speak Bulgarian. Are you going to help us with all the services contracts and negotiations?
Yes, we will be looking after your interests, whenever is necessary we will translate everything for you.
