Dear Silvia, our warmest gratitude for helping us organise our perfect wedding day in Sorrento! Your experience and local knowledge were very reassuring from the start and gave us every confidence that you could help us pull off the Italian wedding of our dreams, even without a lot of time to prepare! We really appreciated your prompt responses to our initial queries, your quick confirmation of our date at the Cloisters and your helpfulness on our visit to view locations. Your relationship with the contacts at the venues and ability to communicate for us to them exactly what we wanted when things were getting lost in translation was hugely reassuring. Your assistance with the advance legal paperwork was indispensable and ensured that everything necessary was taken care of in time. You gave us really great suggestions for the format of our day, to fill the time between the ceremony and the evening reception. You always seemed to know exactly what we wanted even before we could articulate it, and your ideas to tailor things according to our preference, even at short notice, enhanced our experience and our day hugely and made it very special. The duo with violin that we wanted for our ceremony was perfect, and your suggestion that they switch from violin to mandolin when they played during the lunchtime aperitivo worked wonderfully! All of the services you organised, from hair to flowers to car to photography, were of very high quality and ran smoothly. Your aid in liaising with the band we chose helped a lot. Your coordination of everything on the day itself meant it was all timed perfectly and that we could relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything was taken care of. Everything looked beautiful for both the ceremony and the reception and every one of our guests has repeatedly remarked since the occasion on what a wonderful wedding it was, and one that they’ll remember forever. Very many thanks again, Silvia, for your tireless efforts to ensure we had exactly the day we wanted, one that we will always remember, with no detail overlooked, and also for being such a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process! Anna and Aidan. Xxx

Dear Silvia, We cannot thank you enough for your assistance, planning and organisation of our perfect wedding in Sorrento. From the ceremony at The Cloisters, to the reception at Hotel Mediterraneo and everything in between such as the flowers, photographs, hair, make-up, music, food and much more, it all well and truly exceeded our hopes, dreams and wishes for our big day. Nothing was too much to ask and you were even in contact with my parents, who had organised a surprise for us, which we knew nothing about (we absolutely loved the guitar and mandolin duo!). What a fantastic service you provided for us- one that we will definitely be recommending to others! It has been an absolute pleasure having you plan our perfect wedding. Thank you for creating memories that we will treasure for a lifetime. Please pass on our thanks to everyone else involved, especially the photographer as he captured some amazingly beautiful shots for us. Love & best wishes, Lisa & Martyn Raistrick

Hi Silvia We just want to say a huge thank you to you for helping us to organise our wedding day in Sorrento. We were worried about organising our day all the way from Australia but you were amazing! Answered my many questions quickly and had great advice for us! You were always available to talk and this made everything so easy! The church, venue, music, flowers, reception, cake everything was exactly how I imagined and that's all thanks to you ❤️ Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mr and Mrs Mohan xx
Rachel and Jon
Silvia Thank you so much for delivering to us the most perfect Wedding Day! It surpassed all of our expectations - from the flowers to hair and make up to the musicians and the amazing car, the attention you had paid to the detail of the day and to ensuring everything ran smoothly was clear for all to see! All of our guests commented that they had never been to a more beautiful wedding! We would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone considering a wedding in Sorrento! Grazie Mille! Rachel and Jon x
We got married on the 20th May in Sorrento, the ceremony was at the Cloisters and our reception at the beautiful Villa Silvana. Words cannot express my gratitude towards Silvia. Our wedding was like something out of a magazine - I felt like royalty on the day and our guests are still talking about it nearly a month later. It was the PERFECT wedding, and it's all because of the fantastic work that Silvia did. We met with her 18 months before the big day with no idea what we wanted but she worked her magic, gave us lots of ideas, showed us venues and brought it all to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner when getting married abroad, think again. Silvia is a top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. She always made me feel as though she had everything 100% under control. The relationship she has with the representatives at the venues is great and the respect that they have towards her is really apparent - I would absolutely recommend Villa Silvana for your reception as Roberto is fantastic and makes the whole experience easy plus the bridal suite is sensational. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment... Perfect! Thank you silvia x
Rachel and Ryan
Thank you so much Silvia for helping us plan the perfect wedding. Everything ran smoothly from chooosing the venue to completing the legal paperwork and the day itself. We chose Villa Fondi for our civil ceremony and the setting was beautiful. Our guests were all really impressed with the flowers and guitar and mandolin players. We had quite a small wedding with just 15 people in total and Silvia was really helpful in suggesting a suitable venue. She was always really efficient and responded quickly to email queries - it was never stressful planning a wedding in another country. She was also great at sorting out flowers, photography, favours, hair and make up and taxis for ourselves and our guests. We had a minor panic when the Groom's transport arrived late on the morning of the wedding but a phone call to Silvia and all was quickly sorted! The reception at the Relais Blu couldn't have been more perfect. The welcome drinks and canapés were greatly appreciated by our guests and the meal itself and the table decorations were gorgeous. The pool terrace is a perfect private area for drinks/dancing and our guests enjoyed picking their own music. We stayed for the night at Relais Blu and we were very impressed. Hopefully we will return there in the future for our anniversary. Again huge thank you from us and our guests. We have some amazing memories and our guests loved it almost as much as we did!
Katie and Ian
Hi Silvia, I just wanted to say thank you so much for organising our special day in Sorrento. I was worried about organising it all from the UK but you answered all my many emails and put my mind at ease. The day was even better than we imagined. From the ceremony in the Cloisters to the reception at the Relais Blu....everything was perfect! The flowers, photos and video were all amazing. I couldn't believe how quickly we received our video and official pics...all by the time we left which was 3 days after the wedding! Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to anyone considering a wedding in Sorrento! Thank you so much! Mr & Mrs Robson
Vicky and Neil
Hi Silvia Just to say thank you for all your assistance with our wedding. Everything was perfect on the day. The venues looked beautiful and we were so happy with everything. Please also pass on our thanks to the florist as the flowers were stunning, the make up and hair artists as this was amazing, the musicians and the photographer. The photos are outstanding. Our day was very special and many thanks for everything you have done. With kind regards Vicky and Neil
Mark and Claire
Dear Silvia, Just wanted to thank you for organising the best day of our lives. You were truly fantastic! From the moment we met you last October we knew our wedding was in good hands. You eliminated all the stress so we could enjoy the whole experience. Despite the fact we needed both Irish and British citizen legal paperwork you made the process incredibly easy. On the day itself your attention to detail could not have been better. The flowers, hair and make up were perfect. The guitar and mandolin duo created the best atmosphere in the cloisters that we will remember forever. A special thank you to the amazing photographer. The photos captured are so beautiful we will treasure them and the memories of our day that you created for us forever. Grazie mille, Mark and Claire Edlington
Derek and Gillian
Hi Silvia! Just getting round to sending you a huge thank you and some of the beautiful pictures of our wedding! Thank you so much for all your hard work and helping organise the most amazing day!

You made our day the most memorable of our lives and I just want to say how happy we were with everything! Xxx

A wonderful wedding in Sorrento then the Relais Blu and Sylvia was fantastic. No problem was too small to deal with and she was a pleasure to be around. She has expert knowledge of the local area and has great connections. Our wedding really was the best day ofour lives so we owe major thanks to her superb services. Grazie Mille!
Paul & Rachel Kelbie
We got married at the Cloisters on June 9th, 2016. We came out to Sorrento the previous year and met with Silvia where she showed us around several hotels and then also the beautiful Villa Eliana where we decided to have our reception. Silvia was amazing throughout and took away any hardship or stress leading up to the wedding. Her service is fantastic and we would highly recommend her to everyone. Thank you so much Silvia for organising the best day of our lives. We must meet up for drinks when we visit next year for our anniversary! Paul & Rachel
Jo and Ray
We got married in the perfect setting of Ravello in April (2016). Silva was fantastic and planned everything for us. Nothing was too much trouble and our day was wonderful as a result. What was unique about Silvia was that she was a happy to plan a very small wedding for us, which many companies in the area don't and we are very grateful for this. We were particularly impressed by the photographer (Giuseppe) who works with Silvia. Giuseppe took original, relaxed pictures and had them ready for us before we headed home to the UK. Thank you for planning such a fabulous day for us Silvia!
Stephanie & Cameron
Silvia we can't thank you enough for all of your help in planning our big day in Sorrento! From first contact the whole process was so easy, despite planning from a distance. Our ceremony at the Museo Correale was beautiful, as were the flowers and photographs. The hairdresser that was arranged for myself and my Mum did a fantastic job as well. Thank you again for an unforgettable day! Best Regards, Stephanie and Cameron x
Julie and Pasquale
Where to start?! Silvia is fantastic - from our very first query which was answered in less than 24 hours, she has been on hand throughout the whole process of planning the wedding and the day itself, giving us complete peace of mind. She is efficient, professional, competent and an absolute pleasure to deal with; taking care of every detail, every little question we had and offering support during the ceremony and reception too. Flowers and Confetti offers various packages but Silvia never tries to push additional services. Even though my husband is Italian and from Sorrento where we got married, we quite simply couldn't have done it without Silvia as our wedding planner - she was amazing! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone! Grazie di cuore Silvia....e' stato tutto perfetto!!
Ian and Louise

Matt & Michelle Arnold
Silvia is a very professional and extremely capable wedding planner and we are delighted that we chose her to arrange our wedding. From the outset we were impressed by her responsiveness and guidance in arranging our big day. Silvia took the time to really understand our requirements and was allways on hand to answer any questions we had. In the days leading up to the wedding Silvia was on hand to take us to the venue and talk us through the final arrangements. The day itself was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have wished for anything more. Thank you Silvia for making our day so special and for creating such fantastic memories. It was a pleasure working with you Matt & Michelle Arnold - 02nd July 2015

For it’s hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind If you’re young at heart… Celebrating nine months of wedded bliss, and still can’t believe how Flowers and Confetti Silvia Schiappa made our fairy tale wedding come true. With only a few months to plan our special day, Silvia made it happen. She secured the enchanted Chiostro di San Francesco, a baroque church gardens on the Gulf of Naples with Mount Vesuvius in the background and arranged every detail of our wedding including, flowers and hair design with butterflies, the wedding official, creative Photographer Umberto Astarita, the musicians and scenic horse and buggy ride through town. Flowers and Confetti arranged a wonderful dreamlike sunset VIP reception at the Sky Bar and delicious dinner (complete with Cassata wedding cake and limoncello party favors) at the Hotel Mediterraneo Sorrento (Sant’ Angello). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Tramontano fabulous historic waterfront hotel…steps away from the Cloisters. Working with Silvia was easy…be prepared to tell her what you want!

Nikki and Paul
"Where to start. Well I will start with a thankyou to Silvia from myself & everyone who attended my wedding. Everybody commented on what an amazing job she had done from start to finish. I actually don't think we could of been lucky enough to find a better wedding planner if we tried. Silvia Schiappa exceeded my expectations and she went out of her way and above her role at times to pull out all the stops for me, and the day truly was nothing less than perfect. I was worried about getting married abroad as I didn't have full control but I can now say it was the best thing we ever did. My family and friends have said they have had the best week of there lives. I could never thank her enough for just making my day perfect. From the start of the day, turning around and Silvia had managed to get me the White horse I wanted (even though it was unavailable) down to every little tiny detail of the day from start to finish. There was not a dry eye. Amazing, perfect, unforgettable. The best day of my life. Thankyou so much. From Nikki, Paul & family & friends (01/06/15)
Stephanie and Patrick
Everyone thought I was crazy when I told them I wanted to have a wedding in Italy, mostly because I would be planning it all the way from Orlando, FL. Little did they know that I had you as my secret weapon! From church requirements, to flowers, hotels, buses, favors and videographer you had an answer for everything! Your patience and calm demeanor made me feel confident that everything was taken care of. Your network of vendors were all high quality, efficient and a pleasure to work with. My guests kept asking me how we pulled this off and my answer was always "Silvia!" Thank you for the most incredible day, not only for us but for the 60 guests that made the trip all the way from the US to Sorrento. I wanted to make sure they had an incredible time and you delivered beyond my expectations. With Warm Regards, Stephanie and Patrick
Richard and Lisa
Silvia Schiapppa enabled us to secure our dream wedding. She is dedicated, receptive and creative and made an extraordinarily stressful occasion calming and magical. Her ideas are impressive allowing you put together an unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones. Choices of venues are exquisite, as are her suggestions of food and favours. Planning a wedding abroad can be worrying and when choosing a wedding planner one takes a leap of faith - in our case in selecting Silvia we were rewarded. Our guests have not stopped praising the day and all the surprises. We truly could not have achieved this without Silvia. She is contactable throughout, able to quash any worries or queries you may have. She is professional at all times and always willing to go the extra mile. If getting married in Sorrento Silvia should always be your first choice.

Annette and Mark
FROM ANNETTE AND MARK DIXON MARRIED ON 31ST MAY 2014 AT THE VILLA FONDI FOLLOWED BY THE RECEPTION AT THE RELAIS BLU. What can we say about Silvia? Well, from the first point of contact Silvia took away all the stress and pressure of organising a wedding.. She replied instantly to all my emails and listened to my requests and the results were even better on the day. She took time to meet with us in Feb and again the week of the wedding showing us the venues really putting our minds at rest. The flowers, photographer, car, cake, table planners and decorations were exceptional and her organisational skills are professional and second to none. We really cannot recommend her enough, she made our day so special (better than we could ever imagine) .. If you are thinking of getting married abroad please do not hesitate to use Silvia's services you will definitely not regret it. Thank you again Silvia, we were truly lucky to have found you xxx
Belinda & Phil Wright
Phil & I used Silvia's wedding planner service for our Wedding this May 2014. It was just perfect!! Silvia was very attentive, she e-mailed regularly and listened to all the things we wanted for our wedding. The flowers, harp, ceremony, reception was just amazing......a day we will never forget.
Laura and Jonathan
We would like to thank Silvia for making our wedding day even better than we could have imagined. The run-up to the wedding was incredibly easy with Silvia always on hand to answer any questions we had no matter how trivial. We were both delighted with how the day turned out - we couldn't have asked for better venues (Villa Fondi and Relais Blu, which was outstanding) and all of Silvia's suppliers provided excellent service, including our photographer, Pino Collucino, who provided us with some wonderful photographs. Every detail had been considered by Silvia and she produced a fantastic day we will never forget. Thank you so much! Laura and Jonathan Goldsworthy 25th May 2014
Gillian an Elliot
My new husband and I had an amazing time in Sorrento where we eloped. And I just wanted to let you thank you Silvia. "Flowers & Confetti" was just the best. Everything was organised just how we wanted it and Silvia made it so easy for us. She guided us through the legal process and dealt with it all in Italy. Frequent emails back and forth answering all my questions and requests. Once we arrived in Italy she showed us around the cloisters and the restaurant we had chosen. The day itself was perfect and we could not have asked for better service. It was a joy to have her as part of our special day (as our interpreter). The packages she offers are so reasonable and much better value than the package deal tour operators (in my opinion). Could not recommended any more. Fantastic!" Thank you so much Mr & Mrs George xx
Lara and Alex
Huge thank you to Silvia for all your help in arranging our wedding. You were amazing from day 1 of choosing flowers and confetti. We had a fabulous day and the sun even came our for the ceremony. Happy memories of our time in Sorrento". Lara and Alex, 5 May 2014
Joanne & Gavin
It is now a week ago since our amazing wedding day in Sorrento (22nd April 2014). We had our ceremony at the San Francesco cloisters followed by a reception at the Relais Blu. Silvia is a very professional wedding planner whose brilliant organisational skills made our day one to remember. Silvia made the wedding process stress free for us, she arranged everything from the legal issues, to flowers, the hairdresser, photographer, transport, even airport transfers for all of the guests. All services were to a high standard which were perfect, we couldn't have asked for anymore. We cannot thanks you enough Silvia for all your hard work.....Our wedding was amazing, memories that will stay with us forever. Thanks Again Jo & Gavin South Wales xxxx
Michelle and Ryan
Hi Silvia, Ryan and I would like to thank you for organising our amazing wedding in Sorrento last August. I couldn't have done it without you, you are an amazing wedding planner who is both professional and dedicated to your clients. Your attention to detail to organising the perfect day for your clients is second to none. I can highly recommend your planning services to other couples thinking of getting married in Sorrento. Thanks again, Michelle and Ryan Wilkinson UK Wedding 8 August 2013
Caroline and Donald
It is now just over a year since our wonderful wedding in Sorrento – and whilst many memories fade with time due to the amount of organising and planning involved – our wedding memories are still very fresh and clear thanks to the brilliant organising skills of Silvia Schiappa from Flowers and Confetti. Silvia made the whole planning process and the wedding itself a dream – which made the actual wedding absolutely perfect. Everything was taken care of from the amazing flowers (which were more beautiful than I could have dreamed of) to the brilliant hairdresser that was arranged for us and the organising of the gorgeous cake (both in looks and taste) and the fabulous wedding photos. I cannot recommend Silvia and her services highly enough . If you want a stress free wedding which you can relax about and enjoy in the most romantic and beautiful of places – look no further than Flowers and Confetti.
My wife and I are from Pennsylvania, and we have traveled to Sorrento several times in the past. We absolutely love it there. On one occasion we brought our grown children with us and our youngest said, "some day, when I get married, I'd love to have my wedding here." Well, fast foreward 10 years and her dream has become a reality. Thanks to a fantastic wedding planner, Silvia Schiappa, and her company, Flowers and Confetti, my daughter's dream came true beyond all expactations. They did an unbelievable job of coordinating everything from the cerimony to the reception, including accomodating the over sixty guests that accompanied us. The entire experience was nothing short of magical!
Michelle and Paul
If you are considering using Flowers and Confetti as your wedding planner, do it, you will not be disappointed, Silvia is amazing!! We got married in Positano on 24th August 2011 and had the wonderful Silvia from Flowers and Confetti, to help plan our beautiful wedding. From the first time we contacted Silvia with our intial query, she was incredibly helpful and friendly, and that continued throughout the process. Silvia answered all of our queries very quickly, made suggestions to help us out when we weren't sure what we needed. The flowers that she arranged for the ceremony were gorgeous, and exactly what we wanted, even though we gave her the very vague idea that all we knew was that we wanted lillies!! Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Silvia, everything we requested was done to perfection. Every detail that Silvia booked for us was perfect. She booked the most amazing cars, musicians, photgrapher, videographer, venue, restaurant, and of course sorted out the legal aspect of the wedding and even booked hotels for ouselves and our guests. We were really happy that Silvia was our official interpreter on the day, as she had helped us so much over the months, that it was nice to have her be part of our day. Our wedding was truly beautiful and we would not change a single aspect of it. Thanks to Silvia everything ran smoothy, leaving us to enjoy our day. Silvia, we cannot thank you enough for what you did for us!
Simon and Emma
Flowers and Confetti are an extremely professional wedding planning service run by Silvia Schiappa. Our wedding day went so smoothly thanks to Silvia's great organistional skills. She was available to answer all our questions right from an initial meeting a year before the wedding day up to and including the big day itself. We wanted a no frills wedding and that's exactly what we got. I'm sure if we wanted something different then Silvia would've made it happen without question. So if you really don't want the hassle of booking your own wedding in Italy then we thoroughly recommend Flowers and Confetti - a brilliant service at such a reasonable cost.
Natalie and Dave Lawrence
My husband and I got married in Positano on the 17th June 2011. We had a Catholic ceremony followed by a beautiful outdoor reception at Music on the Rocks. Our wedding planner organised all the logistics of being married abroad, she helped us from the legalities to the small details of our wedding day. Silvia's suppliers were excellent, she organised the musicians for the ceremony and reception, the flowers on the day which were stunning, and decorated our reception venue in the most elegant way. Silvia was extremely attentative during the lead up to our wedding which is important when you are hundreds of miles away and you need reassurance. We had a fantastic day, and can't wait to be back in Positano for our anniversaries.
Michaela and David
For anybody looking for the perfect and stress free wedding in Italy,we can highly reccomend Sorrento and the wonderful Silvia Schiappa from Flowers and Confetti planning service. She was so friendly and welcoming and her English is first class. She even picked us up in her car when we couldn't find the meeting spot before the wedding. We got married in the beautiful San Francesco Cloisters in the heart of Sorrento in June of this year. Everything went so perfectly mostly, due to Silvia who is a little godsend. We had a small intimate wedding with 8 people in total, despite this nothing was too much trouble, Silvia will arrange as much or as little as you require, we almost felt like we should be doing more a couple of weeks before we left such is the stress free planning from Flowers and Confetti, Silvia also arranged for the Reception to be held in the La Terazza restaurant in saint agnello which is approx 1km from Sorrento which was amazing, stunning scenery and absolutely fantastic food, we have never eaten so much in one sitting which took approx 3 hours. The flowers were quite simply amazing, we can honestly say if we had arranged these in the Uk the cost would have been at least half of the entire wedding in Sorrento. The photography in the package was for 1 hour yet the photographer Silvia arranged stayed all night and was only to happy to take as many pictures as we wanted, on top of this we had 30 stunning pictures printed and a DVD with over 200 delivered to our Hotel before we came home. Our day was perfect and we would highly recommend using Silvia, you will not regret it for a moment.
Chiara and Mathieu Pelletier
Nous nous sommes mariés à Sorrento le 10 juin dernier. Le soleil, la mer à perte de vue, des paysages fantastiques....un endroit idéal pour le jours le plus beau de notre vie. Pour rendre ce jour inoubliable nous avons choisi l'agence de wedding planner flowers and confetti de Silvia Schiappa. Silvia nous a suivi pendant 9 mois, nous a conseillé et a fait en sorte que notre cérémonie soit magique...et ça l'a été!!!!! Tout a été parfait: la musique, la célébration du rite, les fleurs, la décoration....superbe! Elle nous a aidé aussi à retrouver des solutions d’hébergement pour nos invités venant de l’étranger, un photographe très professionnel et très sympa, assisté avec l'administratif pour le rite civil, et plusieurs autres prestations. Elle m'a accompagné lors de mon essaie de coiffure et maquillage et grâce à elle j'ai fait la connaissance de Anita qui, le jour de mon mariage, m'a coiffée et maquillé comme une vrai princesse. Silvia est très professionnelle et fait appel à des prestataires compétents. Notre mariage a été tel que l'on rêvait, et nos invités nous parlent souvent de notre cérémonie au Chiostro avec beaucoup d'émotion. Nous vous recommandons vivement l'agence Flowers and Confetti. Merci Silvia.
Kimberly and Jerry
I just had my wedding at Hotel Corallo right outside of Sorrento. I used Silvia from Flowers and Confetti to help me plan my wedding. It poured down rain on my wedding day and even with the rain, Silvia pulled off a beautiful wedding. She is detailed oriented and very patient. I could not have asked for more. From the beginning she was reponsive and gave quick answers to any questions I had. Thank you Silvia and Flowers and Confetti!!!
Helen and Nick

Francesca e Fulvio
Io e Fulvio ci siamo sposati il 12 giugno 2010 a Montechiaro (Vico Equense). Silvia ha curato la regia dell’evento. È stato un giorno meraviglioso e perfetto nei minimi dettagli. Con Silvia abbiamo instaurato un rapporto di amicizia e rispetto che ci ha permesso di arrivare al fatidico giorno con molta serenità. Ha la capacità di rassicurare e di sollevare dall’ansia prematrimoniale. Silvia possiede, inoltre, un ottimo senso estetico ed un gusto particolare e raffinato che ci ha permesso di avere una splendida confettata, meravigliosi addobbi floreali etc. ricevendo complimenti da tutti.Importante è anche la rete di for nitori dei quali si avvale, dal fotografo al fioraio, alla musica per la cerimonia, che si sono dimostrati seri, disponibili e professionali quanto lei.Consigliamo a chi decide di sposarsi di rivolgersi a Silvia di Flowers and confetti perché è un sostegno importante ed essenziale per intraprendere l’arduo percorso dei preparativi! Grazie Silvia!
Luoise and Matt
We got married 3 weeks ago on the 22nd May 2010 at Capo la Gala on the Sorrento coast. I had trouble arranging some of the services such as the photographer, flowers, music and celebrant from England so employed the services of Silvia from Flowers and Confetti. Silvia did an amazing job - she seemed to understand our needs exactly, was efficient and prompt in replying to my emails. Some of my requests were pretty last minute but still she met them. I was very pleased with everything she did. Also to make everything easier her English was brilliant.
Paul and Ashley
My now wife and I just got back from Italy a couple days ago from our wedding in Sorrento at the Villa Fondi with the help of Silvia from Flowers and Confetti. It sounds like we had the exact same experience! I can't say enough about how much Silvia helped us navigate all the paperwork and organizing of our wedding. We couldn't do it without her! And we wouldn't change a thing. A+++
Emma and Jason
We went to Italy to be married and chose to stay at and have our wedding reception at the Hotel Corallo. This was after finding the magnificant Silvia Schiappa through her Flowers and Confetti wedding planning service. Silvia was an absolute god send, sdhe arranged everything for us as we wanted it from flowers. hairdresser, haorse drawn carriage, our civil ceremony at the San Francesco Cloister (which is stunning!) to the reception at the Hotel Corallo. Nothinh was ever too much trouble and Silvia was also available and quick to respond to any concerns or questions we had. She came to greet us on our arrival and the hotel had left two delicios baskets of fresh fruit, quickly followed by fresh flowers from Silvia. I can recommend highly enough the fantastic services of Silvia. Needless to stay we are going back next year for our anniversay. Thankyou Silvia for a truly special day.

For anybody wishing for the perfect wedding abroad, I can highly reccomend Sorrento. We got married in the beautiful San Francesco Cloisters in the heart of Sorrento in May of this year. Everything went so perfectly mostly, due to the fact that we had an absolutely fantastic wedding planner. We used Flowers and Confetti to organise our wedding and Silvia Schiappa was absolutely brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, and attention was paid to the smallest of detail. After getting married in the Cloisters, Silvia arranged for the Reception to be held on a private terrace at the Hotel Corallo which was amazing, stunning scenery and absolutely fantastic food. Our day was perfect and we would highly recommend Silvia.

We married on 23 March 2010 at the Villa Fondi in Piano di Sorrento and used the services of Silvia from Flowers and Confetti. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect down to the weather, which only the day before had been absolutely dreadful with torrential rain! I don't think Silvia helped to change the weather (which turned out to be bright sunshine on the big day) but she certainly made our day very special. She even took the time to take us to the florist so that I could choose the exact flowers I wanted in my bouquet. Silvia responded quickly and courteously to the many emails which were passed between us and spent the wedding day with us making sure everything went smoothly. A massive thank you to Silvia who is highly recommended by ourselves!

My husband and I were married October 10th in Sorrento, Italy. Our ceremony took place in the magnificent gardens of Villa Fondi and the reception followed at a charming Hotel overlooking the gulf of Naples. My husband and I are of a different religion and culture, which presented an enormous challenge especially in a country with such strong believes and traditions. Silvia managed to bring together 120 Russian Jews and Italian Catholics perfectly. She coordinated the entire event thru endless communications, even though we we're across the ocean her attention to details and extreme patience made it feel she was right around the corner. Silvia Schiappa, our wedding coordinator of "Flowers and Confetti" went far and beyond to marry the two cultures together. She did a magnificent job at selecting flowers, music, entertainment, hair stylist and every other minute detail. The event turned out perfectly! She was attentive, professional and eager to please. Combined with the beauty of Sorrento, the charm and location of the reception venue, delicious food and the warmth of Italian people this was the one day my friends and family will NEVER forget. Thank you Silvia for making our fairytale come to life!!!

My husband and I were just married at Villa Fondi in Piano di Sorrento and the reception followed at Hotel Corallo in Sant'Agnello. It was honestly the most magical and perfect day of our lives. Silvia from "Flowers and Confetti" helped us out tremendously with the planning. We highly recommend using her services, not only because she speaks English beautifully, but she is extremely professional, is always quick to respond to emails and thinks of everything; even the things that brides may forget! We can't wait to return for our first anniversary (fingers crossed)!

Just to say my husband and I got married in Sorrento on the 3rd July 2009 and used the wonderful wonderful Flowers & Confetti wedding planning services, fronted by the fantastic Silvia Schiappa. Although only a low key ceremony, we were treated as if we were the only clients and had a big do! Silvia (wedding planner), was always quick to respond via email (also contactable via telephone if you wish - her English is AMAZING)and would answer any question however trivial, with no question or qualms. We trusted her to choose flowers, music (we chose the instrument), went with her recommendation for the restaurant, hair stylist etc and all turned out perfectly on the day. Everything ran smoothly, and we wouldn't change a single thing about the whole day - it was perfect! We would recommend Silvia to anyone who is thinking of a stress free wedding abroad - as we had no stress whatsoever - and that's all thanks to Silvia.

We got married at Villa Fondi on 30th May, 2009, followed by a reception at the Hotel Corallo. Silvia from Flowers and Confetti did an amazing job with our wedding, she is very passionate about her job and wanted us to have the perfect wedding day - which it was! Her English is also fantastic. She was very responsive and helped us coordinate the day exactly how we dreamed it. Her contacts were all wonderful and very professional. I highly recommend Flowers and Confetti for your wedding - if you want the best day of your lives!

We got married last week in Sorrento and it was the best week of our lives. Marriage really means sometime to the locals, and it was a great feeling to be applauded by the locals on our walk to the cloisters where the ceremony took place. I will say that we had the most fabulous wedding planner, Sylvia Schiappa of Flowers and Confetti (http://www.flowersandconfetti.com/). She attended to every detail and was very generous with her time on a fixed budget. She even gave us a guitar player to play during the ceremony as a gift. Really, if you need a wedding planner in Italy, you can't get better than Sylvia.
