Mariella Wilson | Bulgarian Wedding Planner

Hey there!

I’m Mariella, a wedding dream maker from Bulgaria.

First, my massive congratulations to you both. 🥂🍾

How exciting, you are about to start planning the best day of your life and because you have never planned a wedding before you need somebody to help you.

You need the best wedding planner to make all your wedding dreams come true, right? 

That’s great. Keep reading as you may be in the right place already. 

Planning a wedding can be a happy and enjoyable experience when you choose the right wedding planner. But it can also be stressful and full of unpleasant surprises (some of them expensive) if you go for the wrong person or company.

I’d love to introduce myself and if you’d like my laid back and relaxed style, with attention to details and great passion for making wedding dreams come true – please let me know!

I will be more than happy to help. 

I started my career in 2004, after becoming the first certified wedding planner in Bulgaria. My boutique wedding agency “Fairytale day” (in Bulgarian “Prikazen Den”) quickly became the most sought – after company and my team and I organised hundreds of beautiful events across the country. I became a celebrity wedding planner and had the opportunities to present our fantastic work in many TVs and reality shows, top magazines and radio talk shows. 

In 2009 my family and I moved to London, UK and settled down for good. Being passionate about weddings and beautiful events, I kept working as a destination wedding planner, working with couples all over the world who want to get married in Bulgaria. 

Here there are a few things about me you need to know if we are going to work together:

I’m a good listener

For all those years I worked with couples with different nationalities and the most important thing I’ve learnt is to listen to what they dream for, so I can turn their dreams into unforgettable memories.

I love to give a choice

This is the reason why we don’t have “all-inclusive” or “ready” wedding packages. What I’d like to do is to have a discovery meeting with you. First to get to know you and to hear from you what are the most important aspects of your wedding day for you. Then, I will handpick all the services you’d like to have, so you can choose from pre-selected options the best fit for you. 

I love to style events

There is nothing more exciting than recreating your love story in every detail of your wedding. Together we will select the best colours, will choose all elements and flowers, and on your wedding day, my team will do the entire production and will create the most beautiful decoration for you. 

I love to plan weddings

Once we start working together, you and I will be a team. I will look after your best interests, will be keeping everything organised and transplanted, so in every phase of the planning process, you will know where we are and what is remaining to be done.

One more thing, as I always coordinate personally all our weddings, my team and I will be looking after you through the entire wedding day. We will make sure that everything is running smoothly and according to the plan, and you both will be having the most amazing day in your life.

Well, there are a few things, I won’t be able to offer you though. Those are:

  • Information about the prices of all of the services in advance. 

A lot of people ask – how much will it cost me, but unfortunately, this is not the right approach. The most important question you need to ask yourself is how much would you like to spend for the most important day of your life? How beautiful and exciting would you like to make this experience for you and your guests? 

Once you know your wedding budget, I will offer you different options. We work with many different suppliers which have different price and quality ranges, so when I know your budget, I will be able to advise what will be the best for you. 

  • Legal documents & Marriage certificate 

In Bulgaria, you only can have a blessing or a symbolic ceremony if both of you don’t have Bulgarian nationality. Bulgarian law doesn’t allow foreigners to have a legal marriage. However, if one of the partners is Bulgarian, then I can advise you what documents you will need.

In both cases, we recommend you to get married in the country you are coming from as this is the best option for you. You will save yourself a lot of money and hassle with taxes, translations and legalising the marriage after the wedding.

  • Booking flights & Accommodation

I will be helping you in every step of the way, however, when it comes to booking flights and accommodation, we advise this to be done on a personal level. Many of your guests will plan their own holiday. Some of them may want to stay a bit longer as they may want to explore the country, others can prefer to stay in a luxury resort which is not suitable for all your guests or maybe someone else will need a children-friendly hotel and so on. 

You can count on me to advise you with the best accommodation options around your wedding venue, however, all of the actual bookings have to be made by yourself and your guests. 

I think those are the most important things for me. 

If this sounds like something you are looking for, please go to “Work with me 💖” page to discover more about my service and what I can do for you.  

If you feel like that we can be a great team, I’d love to hear from you.

Please, fill out the enquiry form >>>HERE<<< and let me know when are you planning to have your wedding, share a little bit of what your dreams are, so I can get a feel of your style.

Wishing you a beautiful day.
