Using Accent as your destination wedding planner you will have access to all our experience and knowledge and our amazing suppliers, saving you time, which we recognise as a precious commodity. We remove the stress associated with coordinating a destination wedding. We manage your requirements and expectations so that you will always feel connected throughout the process.
Wedding Expenditure & Budget Management
Once we have a picture of how your wedding will look, we put together a budget and select those suppliers ideally suited to create the look and feel of your wedding day in line with your aspirations.
Communication & Administration
Throughout the process we keep you up-to-date with regular wedding reports including payment schedules, and we are on hand to answer your questions or if it is an impartial listening ear to soundboard ideas and concerns we will support you.
Our bespoke service is designed to bring your ideas and dreams to reality. Our know-how through years of wedding planning experience in Italy will give you the confidence in your choice of a destination wedding. Not only will we design an amazing wedding day, the management of the arrangements will be against an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation, culminating in something memorable and meaningful to you.
The Bespoke Service Includes
A new and individually designed wedding is custom-created according to each individual couple’s wishes and specifications, featuring all of the accents, touches and nuances that render it a perfect and personal fit…no detail is too small and no request is too difficult. This is an inclusive and collaborative service and to-date this has been our focus service. Bespoke planning allows us to really understand our clients and we believe this relationship is at the heart of a ‘planned to perfection’ wedding.
We are there, from the very start to the finishing touches – over a 12 -18 month time-period.
Over the months we begin to put together the itinerary timeline, we bring your decisions to reality by scheduling all the services to interact together perfectly on your big day, its almost comparable to a well co-ordinated dance; as for our wedding day itineraries – they have become quite famous!
The couples who choose this service are often unable to commit to the many hours (stats show it takes almost 6 weeks to plan a wedding) required for planning and creating a destination wedding. And so they need a trustworthy team to guide them, to explore their ideas and to create their vision. We provide informed advice and insight based on our many years of experience, guidance so couples can feel secure in the decisions they make and consultancy on how a bride and groom’s ideas will translate into a wedding day.
How can we Help?
Our Specially Designed Services
Our services have been specially designed to suit all couples wishing to marry in Italy: from brides and grooms with a healthy wedding budget but little time to devote to their wedding planning, through couples who wish to be actively involved in their wedding planning while guided by our assistance and experience, to those who simply require support for those services which may cause trepidation (such as the legal process and town hall bookings). Accent Events can provide a service suited to you and the wedding day you wish to create. We will provide help where help is needed.
What better way to evaluate your shortlist of wedding venues in Italy, than accompanied by one of our bilingual English and Italian-speaking representatives! The presence of our representative will remove any stress of visiting a new area leaving you to soak up all the atmosphere of Italy and enjoy the venues to the fullest. Our representative will facilitate your visit, relaying important information and your questions to venue owners and will talk through possible wedding day scenarios so that you can truly envisage your wedding day.
The Accent Events Introduction Service is suited to couples who wish to do most of their own wedding planning. This is an expanded version of the accompanied venue visit. Our Italy-based Accent Events team will accompany you to venues and make introductions to our trusted local professional wedding suppliers. By Accent Events facilitating the introduction to venues and suppliers, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will be dealing with reputable and experienced professionals who will offer you the best services at competitive prices.
On The Day Coordination
It is possible to add an On-the-Day Coordination element to your wedding, should you decide to do so at a later stage in your wedding planning. On-the-Day coordination means that an Accent Events team-member will be with you on your wedding day to coordinate all of your planned wedding day events and elements. This will allow you freedom from wedding worries and the peace of mind to fully relax and enjoy your big day. We offer half or full day presence to fit with our budget. It is advisable to book this in advance to guarantee availability of our on-location team, especially during the peak months May to October.
Interpreter & Translation
This is a 'must have' service for a legally-binding civil wedding ceremony in Italy and one Accent Events is very happy to offer you. Unless you are fluent in Italian, you are required, by Italian law, to have a translator present at your civil wedding ceremony. Beyond offering the legally-required translation of the Italian civil wedding ceremony, Accent Events' Translation Services include personalisation of your ceremony to include elements such as readings, personalised vows and other symbolic rites.
Our Translation Services also include the translation of the Certificates of No Impediment required for UK-based British couples to legally marry in a civil wedding ceremony in Italy. We offer the legally-required translation, registration of these documents (including obtaining the necessary courthouse stamps) then safe and personal delivery of your documentation to the appropriate town hall.
Symbolic Ceremony - Personal & Unique
Our symbolic celebrant services are a wonderful option for those couples who would like to celebrate a personal and personalised wedding ceremony. While not legally valid, symbolic ceremonies are becoming an ever more popular and relevant wedding ceremony choice - allowing a couple to celebrate exactly the way they wish and to create their dream ceremony. Our celebrant works with each couple to design and create a perfectly personalised ceremony which truly reflects the personalities of a couple, their relationship and their values and beliefs. Symbolic ceremonies can include symbolic elements and rites and the participation of family members and friends. Symbolic ceremonies are wholly and wholeheartedly personalisable and personalised, to create a truly unique celebration of your relationship and your commitment.
Town Hall & The Legal Documents
Our comprehensive service will take care of the whole process for your civil ceremony in Italy. We will manage the communications with the Comune - Town Hall Office to check availability for your wedding day, followed by confirmation of the booking. Once the date is confirmed we will book our interpreter and translation service for your ceremony to ensuring all the necessary paperwork is in place for your arrival in Italy.
For UK citizens the majority of the paperwork is complete prior to your arrival in Italy. In some instances it will be necessary to do a "Declaration of Marriage" one or two day prior to the wedding day. We will advise you of this once you have decided on the town or city for your wedding celebration. Other nationalities please contact us.
