WEDDING PLANNING & EVENT STYLING
I love to plan unforgettable weddings for our couples and their wedding guests. Since 2004, my team and I have organised and executed over 250 bespoke weddings and events in Bulgaria.
A “Fairytale day” is the only one based in London wedding agency, specialising in destination weddings in Bulgaria that provides relaxed and enjoyable, completely made to measure service to couples who are looking for a wedding abroad.
Bulgaria is like a little gem in between Italy, Greece and Turkey, offering gorgeous weather, venues with outstanding views, delicious fusion Mediterranean food and nothing less than great value for money and wonderful experiences.
Couples choosing our destination wedding planning service want to be offered the best options for wedding venues, wedding services and entertainment. However, I can help with fantastic options for a holiday as part of your wedding weekend in Bulgaria. I don’t offer wedding packages, as we like to tailor our couples experience with individuality and personalised elements, which resonate with you and your wedding ideas.
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. In the modern era where almost everything is happening online, we made our working process easy and convenient.

The great news is that Bulgaria has an excellent developed wedding industry. You can find wonderful quality services across the country. This also gives you an opportunity to select the best options for you, because many of the services can travel everywhere in the country.

The wedding for 20 people (which is the minimum for most of the venues) including food & drinks and basic wedding services like a photographer, simple decoration, DJ, and wedding cake starts from 8’500 bg leva. In British Pounds, this is approx. £3’900.
As with many other Mediterranean or neighbouring countries like Greece, Turkey, or Italy and Croatia for example, Bulgaria also has delicious food and signature drinks.

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.
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.
