We were looking to plan a wedding in Italy and spoke to few wedding planners but it never felt right. Hannah was different, she was the only one who understood us from the first conversation. It took her one phone call to understand our style, what we were looking for and how busy we were with our jobs to accommodate us. We had 4 months to organise a wedding with very little free time but at every step she made us feel like everything will be fine and possible.
Hannah and Mari were just fantastic all the way through, I can not recall the numbers of times we said at home “thank god we hired them as our wedding planners”.
They were always available at anytime, any day to answer all our questions and make us feel better. They also knew when to chase us, when to be honest and to the point so they were no surprises!
I really felt like they were more than just wedding planners, like our friends and ready to go the extra mile to achieve the best for us. Anytime I will freak out and text Hannah she was there to make me feel so good about everything!
I am so happy we chose you, everything was excellent and the wedding could not have been better. We enjoyed so much our wedding and this is because we had you there with Mari to take care of everything but also take care of us.
I highly recommend using Hannah and her team, they are just the best!
If you are thinking about having a destination wedding in Italy, my first and strongest recommendation – hire Hannah and her team. Without a question, apart from my choice in groom, working with them was the best decision I made.
My partner and I are Americans living in Sydney, and when we decided to get married in Tuscany, I reached out to dozens of Italian wedding planners. Most were unresponsive and others were slow to respond or very, very expensive with a limited set of things they were willing to support us with. As we were (obviously) having a destination wedding with people coming from all over the world, we needed support with all aspects of the wedding. Then a friend recommended Hannah and her team to me (thank goodness!) Hannah lives here in Sydney, but works with her team that’s on the ground in Italy. Having lived and worked as a wedding planner in Italy and speaking fluent Italian, it was wonderful to be able to work with her locally, both over the phone and in person, and have her team on the ground working to explore the venues, chat with vendors directly, etc. For the three months before the wedding, I was working in Europe, and that was just as seamless – Hannah was always available and so responsive. She and her team are so incredibly professional, organised, and efficient. Both my partner and I have pretty full-on jobs, so it was such a relief to know wedding details were being sorted on our behalf.
Hannah and her team made sure we had exactly the experience we wanted to have – from negotiating with the vendors on our behalf (which, by the way, can save you as much Hannah’s services cost – in our case, even more), tracking down just the right performers, helping us navigate some of the tricky family aspects of a wedding, etc. We ended up doing three days of events, all of which they helped us coordinate, and Mari was on site with us the whole time. She advocated for what I wanted (pushing the ceremony back a half hour to let the rain pass and keep it outside), made sure everything went smoothly, and coordinated all the guests. I didn’t have to do anything but be present. Hannah and her team gave us a wedding that we will never forget and that would never have been possible without their support. 11/10 – highly, highly recommend.
I got in touch with a number of wedding planners and heard straight back from Hannah, she was personable, interested in our story and immediately I felt like I had known her all my life. There was no comparison between Hannah and the others and I knew instantly that LSE were the ones for us.
Along with Hannah, Mariangela also made a massive impact on us. From day 1 the responses were quick and thorough and they both went above and beyond and out of their way to help us achieve our dream wedding. Even Mari’s partner became someone we can now call a friend.
People find planning their wedding stressful, especially when it’s a destination wedding, but we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. On the wedding day they ran around ensuring everything was perfect. And in the lead up they could not have possibly done more for us. We felt like we were their only clients which says a lot about them and their approach. We honestly can’t recommend them enough and have found friends for life in the LSE crew.
We had such an amazing experience with Hannah and Mariangela as our wedding planners. I couldn’t imagine not having them apart of our journey and our day!
They made the process of organising a wedding overseas so much more enjoyable and stress free. They were organised, knowledgeable and communicated well with all suppliers and myself throughout the entire process. Their expertise and attention to detail is something I completely trusted and will highly recommend to all.
On the day they were extremely attentive, they made sure the day ran smoothly and put in a lot of effort to make sure our guests were well looked after.
Thank you so much for going above and beyond to make our wedding day as perfect as what it was!
I found Hannah and her team after I was matched with her based off of a profile I made on a website for Italian elopements. After submitting my profile I received multiple emails from different planning companies. After reading tons of the emails, as soon as I read Hannah’s introductory email I knew she was my wedding planner. Her professionalism, expertise, and knowledge of the industry was obvious just within a paragraph in her email. You would think it would have been a complicated process to work with her considering I was in the United States and she was in Australia, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. We were able to communicate on a regular basis through email, text messaging, and the occasional phone call. She was always available to me if I needed her, or had questions. She provided me with the best vendors, and they were all wonderful to work with.
By the time my wedding came around I was not only excited to be in Italy, and to be getting married, but because I was going to meet Hannah. Through out the planning process she became more than just my wedding planner. She became my friend. My wedding day was truly a fairytale and I know it would not have been possible without Hannah and her team. You will not be disappointed if you choose Love Story Italy!
My partner and I both work in demanding roles which limits what spare time we have. Both Hannah and Mariangela were more than accommodating and without their tolerance and subtle persistence our perfect day would have never pieced together.
Their seamlessly organised our entire week in Amalfi, from coordinating transfers with family members, to hotel & restaurant recommendations, to planning post wedding Capri Yacht cruises.
Without you our Amalfi Wedding would not have been possible. The service provided was truly second to none. Our entire experience with Love Story Events was flawless and one I would dearly recommend.
“After a lot of research I accidentally came across Hannah on Instagram. As soon as I reached out we immediately hit it off. You were smart, collaborative and politely put me in my place when I needed to reign it in somewhat. Being a planner myself (different industry) I knew exactly what I wanted and you were able to make my vision come true. You were there for me when I felt overwhelmed, always had great recommendations for vendors and went above and beyond the contracted agreement. I’m confident, the day would not have been as beautiful and smooth as it was without you. If I had a question, you had an answer, and if I had a request, you made it happen. Your help allowed me to sit back and enjoy our special day and not worry about a thing! When people would say “you seem really relaxed for a bride” I was thinking luckily I had you and your amazing planning skills. Everyone should use a wedding planner. I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone looking to get married in Italy or Sydney if you want to have a gorgeous and flawless event! Thanks again for everything, take care.” See Gallery here.
HAPPY COUPLE from CANADA! Michael and I started planning our wedding in Positano, Italy thinking we can handle the planning ourselves. We had already been in contact with the ceremony and reception vendor. We struggled planning the wedding ourselves. We didn’t realized there was more logistic than just booking the ceremony and reception. We had to think about transportation, activities for guests, accommodations, decor, timeline and many more. It was tough handing the time difference, juggling with our jobs and daily activities. This is where Hannah came in the picture. From then, everything has been easy peezy. Hannah has taken over of the contact to vendors. She really listens to our needs and wants. She made sure everything was meet according to our dream vision and budget. The schedule she has created for our wedding weekend was easy to follow. On the wedding day, everything went so smoothly and on time (which was very important). The décor set up was beautiful. We couldn’t have been happier with Hannah and her associates. Love, Vivian and Michael Rosenbloom Vancouver, Canada
“I cannot imagine what planning our wedding would be like without Hannah. We have never met anyone so detail oriented, organized, efficient and honest. From the initial phone call to following up after our wedding, Hannah has been extremely attentive and outstandingly present in organizing the best days of our lives. She worked with our budget to get us more than we expected with the most reliable vendors. She was able to mitigate situations before we knew there was a problem to begin with.
Hannah was so involved that in such a short period of time she realized what was truly important to us, Family. She was able to plan our wedding and wedding activities around that foundation. She recommended and seamlessly organized a Welcome reception Pizza party dinner, Sentiero degli dei – Path of the Gods Hike and a Sunset boat cruise the day after our wedding for all of us.
Her service did not stop with orchestrating our wedding day and wedding events. She made herself available to our guests and assisted with items from coordinating transfers to and from our wedding location, to recommending hotel accommodations based on personal preferences. Hannah’s love and care for her clients and client’s guests’ is truly unique and genuine. We are so fortunate to have worked with Hannah not only because our wedding day and activities turned out perfect, because we also gained a genuinely caring and sweet friend. Love Story Events Italy is nothing shy of exceptional service.” See Gallery here.

“If you are getting married in Italy, stop your search right now and use Love Story Events. Hannah is as professional as they come, our entire experience was 5 star and seamless. She has the best recommendations, relationships and intuition, she will get you everything you need and want for your special day, is extremely hands on, she thinks of everything, nothing will be missed.
We had several events surrounding our wedding which were so amazing and her knowledge of the area as well as her drive to get us what we wanted made them so amazing for our family and friends. We hosted a beach day in Amalfi the day before the wedding, and the day after took our entire wedding of 60 people on a boat cruise to lunch at a private beach. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and my husband and I feel the same!
Hannah coordinated travel and accommodations with very detailed recommendations providing insight on every location, booked hotels and transfers for our guests (which is extremely helpful for family and friends not familiar with the area) and helped us plan the most epic honeymoon ever.
I wanted to surprise my husband with several things last minute, and Hannah made everyone of them happen, she truly is a miracle worker, the best of the best, and there is no one else I would trust with the most important day of your life. I cannot say enough about Hannah and her staff, every single recommendation she made from vendors, to locations was absolutely top notch and she is a true pleasure to work with.
Our best decision besides choosing to marry each other, was to use Love Story Events – XoXoXo”
Just a note to say thank you to you personally.
You have been there for us at every step of the way. Your professionalism is incredible and you were such a pleasure to communicate with. It did not go unnoticed how amazing you were even well into the night yesterday and for that we are truly grateful. Several of our guests even made a point of informing us just how great you have been.
All the best,
Chris and Kelly
We are back from a glorious two weeks in Sicily and wanted to write to thank you for the beautiful part you played in our wedding day. It was 18 months or so in the making and during that time nothing was ever too much trouble. You got our vision and made it a reality on the day.
Hannah your professionalism throughout the planning and on the day was faultless, and you made us feel so welcomed and assured when we arrived in Italy. Every recommendation you made from the pre wedding dinner to the reception venue was perfection.
Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for the part you played in our glorious day. We will remember it forever!
