GEORGIE AND MATT
Civil wedding | Volterra | May 2011
Matt and I just wanted to thank you Marisa for all the fantastic work you did to make our perfect Dolce vita wedding event. You listened to our brief, and created moments that we, our families and our friends will never forget. It was truly intimate, yet wonderfully grandiose.
On return to the villa your flowers and decoration were unbelievable. We really noticed that you picked the highest quality Avalanche roses, and the wonderful dark lilies, and indulged the whole place with elegance…Beautiful, beautiful – Complimenti! The way you guys zoned the villa worked really well – it was comforting to have an overall aesthetic guide on the day.
KEHAULANI AND DJ
Humanist wedding | Lucca | June 2014
It started with our vision, and Le Petit Jardin made it a reality. We gave Marisa a budget, a style, and she did the rest.
Marisa is a gem of a woman who listened to Kehau’s aesthetic desires for an earthy organic floral approach and she executed it with perfection.
On the day of the wedding, their team was at the villa from the moment I awoke. In 98º F heat, up on a ladder, making sure each one of the fairy lights was hung with care and working properly. This is the type of service you can expect from Le Petit Jardin.
GERALDINE AND MICHAEL
Catholic wedding | Florence | August 2010
A big thank you to Marisa – the church looked amazing and just how I had envisaged it .The candles and flowers created a warmth intimacy which is exactly the brief we gave . Marisa calmed me down in the build up to the wedding when the venue changed and I completely trusted her taste and Judgement on venue and Ambiance we wanted to create and it was above and beyond our expectations.We had so many comments about my bouquet which was stunning, and worked so well with the vintage look of the dress.
The floral displays and candles on the table, and around the castle courtyard were simply beautiful, and created the vintage twinkly feel that we wanted throughout the wedding.
LANA AND BEN
Symbolic blessing | Umbria | May 2014
My goal was to create a casual and relaxed atmosphere with rustic elegance. I wanted our guests to appreciate the beauty of the Italian countryside, and experience some of the amazing food and wine that Italy has to offer. I feel that we accomplished this completely and perfectly. It was wonderful to have everything on site, the wedding ceremony, the dinner and reception, freeing up time and allowing for guests to spend the day either lounging at the pool, strolling the property or sightseeing.
It was so much more than a wedding day… it was an experience that we and our guests will never forget. We wouldn’t change anything about the entire weekend, it was just perfect.”
REBEKAH AND WES
Civil wedding | San Gimignano | September 2009
What can we say, it’s been just over a month since our magical wedding in Tuscany and we are still on cloud nine. Never in a million years did we imagine our day to be as wonderful as it was. What we achieved would never have been possible without you and for that we will be eternally grateful.
Over the months leading to the event, Marisa and her team planned everything. They responded promptly to all emails (some sent daily) and phone calls and provided reassurance every step of the way. As a bride you worry about so many little things and having someone there as a constant sounding board offering ideas and solutions takes away so much of the stress that planning a wedding can bring.
When we met the talented Marisa, of Le Petit Jardin to discuss our flowers, we’d seen the pictures on her website and were keen to talk through our ideas for a contemporary theme based upon our love of orchids. Flowers can make or break the perfect wedding – and ours definitely made it. Even now one of the first things people say to me when they see the pictures is ‘gosh your flowers were fabulous’. Marisa did such a wonderful job, what met us in the town hall that day, were the most beautiful and inspired wedding flowers I’ve ever seen. Delicate and stylish they complimented the room wonderfully. The bouquet was stunning, I was so sad to leave it behind when we returned home at the end of the holiday. As for the table compositions and individual vases, we couldn’t have asked for more.
