MEET ACCENT EVENTS
I am prone to wanderlust and I am a plannerholic, I was ruined of any chance of a normal life after I had worked as an adventure tour leader. I met my Aussie husband (he was on one of my tours) doing what was the best job I have ever experienced until I set up Accent Events to help intrepid and likeminded couples realise their dreams for their own weddings in Italy. I love organising and the details. The best thing about my job is the vision couples have for their wedding. All the different ways of celebrating commitment it is fantastic. I am a huge fan of symbolic weddings as there are not restrictions, the sky is the limit on when, where and how you wish to say I do, or I commit to you.
Accent Events is UK based Italy Wedding agency. During the months of May to end of September I travel throughout Italy helping couples realise their dreams. I knew when I started the company I needed to move around and not focus on one location, this is where the wanderlust comes in! Whenever a new couple mentions a new location my interest is fired up and I get ready to do the fact finding and research to make up whatever their hearts desire.
Having a connection with couples who are seeking a different style of wedding is so important, understanding what is important to them means that every suggestion or recommendation is done with them in mind. I am a practical person, my approach to focus on securing the right place, date and time once those are secure then we move into design, bringing together all the elements that hold significance for the couple. I see myself as a wedding alchemist, perfect conditions and ideas for an unforgettable event. Underlying all of this is the passion for Italy.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
Hey Gio, I hope you had an amazing time in NYC.
Apologises that it’s taken us so long to write this message. Following the wedding we had a fantastic week in Italy and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind ever since.
Megan and I want to say a huge thank you for all the hard work you put in to making our wedding weekend the best weekend of our lives. Every single guest has told us that’s it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to and we want to say a huge thank you for your massive contribution to that.
All of the hours spent in London coffee shops were fully worth it. You went above and beyond to make sure every single detail was thought of and we want to thank you for that. Feel free to use any of this email as a quote for your google or website.
Gio is amazing she has been excellent from start to finish. She captured exactly what we wanted for our wedding immediately. The visits arranged for our venues were fantastic and gave us 5 completely different options which enabled us to determine exactly what we wanted. The ideas she has had surrounding transport for our big day have been truly inspired and have all our guests extremely excited. We are lucky enough to have been able to visit Italy twice this year to sort wedding stuff out in person and Gio has been pinnacle in this organisation.She has arranged drivers with no hesitation for our visits to the venues on both occasions. She is exceptionally quick at responding to any of our questions and queries and has complete understanding when we have decided not to use certain services of which details she has provided, such as hair and makeup. We have also had the pleasure of meeting with Gio and her lovely husband. This provided us with such a personal service and from the meeting it has been clear to us that we want them both present in Italy to be part of our special day. Absolutely flawless service – your wedding will be in safe hands with Gio!!
Gio and Martin are absolute superstars! From the moment we contacted Accent Events, Gio guided us on a smooth, stress-free journey to our wedding date. And our journey was not a simple one! An Australian Brit, marrying a Brazilian Italian, living in London, wanting to legally marry in Italy, but we did it!
Gio met us in London and really got to know our style, budget and what was important to us. She arranged four venue viewings that were just spot on. Two were great, one was exactly what we wanted, and one was beyond our wildest dreams. And we secured that dream venue.
Gio was so organized, everything else just fell into place. No detail was forgotten.
