Lulworth Castle / Final Three Month Plan

It really is hard to express how amazing Melanie and the Bellissimo team are! When we first met Melanie it was clear straight away what a very special lady she is who is extremely professional, efficient, kind, enthusiastic and just amazing at her work! We walked away feeling (to quote my now husband) that she made all the planning and decisions “fun again”, which is no mean feat! We cannot thank you enough Melanie for all of your time and dedication to our wedding. We truly felt so looked after and that you went the extra mile for us. This included dressing a whole 14 foot Christmas tree on the day of our wedding in our colour scheme, and then redressing it in the small hours of the morning to return it to the venue’s colour choice!  Good job she is not scared of heights as that was quite a tall ladder! (Although knowing Melanie, even if she was, she would have found a way of sorting it!).

Melanie also dressed the tree with her own home decorations to help us out – that is the type of person Melanie is which gives her and the team the unique blend of professionalism with personal kindness and thought. Nothing was too big or small for Melanie to help us with, which she did with such grace and kindness. We hired Melanie initially for help with suppliers and one month/on the day help, which quickly was extended to 3 months beforehand as it became clear how invaluable her service and knowledge was.

We did not know where to start with our suppliers and Melanie really listened to our needs and thoughts helping us decide on the best people for us taking away the stress and confusion.  Throughout the whole planning process Melanie was incredibly efficient, inspirational, highly creative and wonderfully calm. She was full of ideas and had amazing vision – we don’t think we could have literally done it without her! If there was one thing that we could not do without on our wedding day it was Melanie and her team – it was the best money we have ever spent. On the actual day Melanie was a rock – making sure all of our guests and we were so wonderfully looked after. It was so wonderful to know she was there. I would not hesitate to recommend Melanie to anyone who is planning a wedding or any event – she made all the difference for us, and we will truly miss her and all the emails, meetings, and planning! So many of our family and friends commented on how fantastic Melanie and her team were and how it was such a magical and beautiful wedding. Thank you Melanie – you truly are stars! We will miss you. Love Jenna and Steve Bartlett xx
