“I cannot recommend Extraordinary Weddings enough to anyone considering getting married in Italy. When we first decided to get married abroad and set our sights on a wedding by one of the Italian lakes, we were nervous about finding someone that we could trust to make our dream a reality. Barbara made it happen! She is a true professional who went above and beyond to make our day, and the run up to it, as special and stress free as possible. She was always quick in responding to emails and was incredibly thorough in finding the best suppliers based on our budget. She was amazing at negotiating on our behalf and was on top of every detail which was so important to me because you can feel a bit powerless sometimes when you decide to get married abroad! She was a true ally and friend throughout the process. Everyone at the wedding commented that we couldn’t have had a better planner! If you’re getting married in Italy and looking for a planner, call Barbara Gourdain!“

“We used Extraordinary Weddings Italy to help put together our beautiful wedding in La Morra, Piedmonte. It was a special place for us – having visited there previously – we always knew we wanted to be married there. It was a difficult time of year, and because we were Australians, there was a lot of procedures and paperwork to be mindful of. Working with Barbara made this so incredibly painless and simple. It was almost as if most of the wedding was taken care of. Someone was always within Skype, phone or text. She’s incredibly pro-active and professional. She can work to any budget and can really help make the most memorable day. To anyone who is looking for some help in organising their wedding in Italy – we do highly encourage you to whip a quick email to Barbara…you’ll understand what we mean!”

She took care of everything I needed immediately and always offered ideas and suggestions that I did not know were possible since I’m not from here. Extraordinary Weddings brought my wedding day vision to life. The execution and décor were flawless. Everything was even more amazing than we imagined!”
