Rita Adreani

director at Cortona Tuscan Weddings, talks about her passion of event planning.

I have always loved all forms of art and the beauty of my homeland! When I was twenty I used to restore precious old fabrics and I have been doing this job for nine years. Then I contributed to enhancing the development of the real estate agency run by my family by managing properties for holiday rentals. Cortona is a tourist destination chosen by people coming from all over the world and I have always liked taking care and hosting them in my town in the best way possible. I look back with pleasure to those years and remember when I personally dealt with finding accommodation for the actors, film directors and film makers involved in the shooting of "Under the Tuscan Sun". This experience was really dynamic and satisfying to me!
Then, in 2002, I started my business as wedding planner and event manager when my first marrying couple contacted me. They were looking for someone having a huge network in Cortona and who loved planning events.
My good reputation as someone who pays attention to details and plans everything impeccably has spread in a short time, so I decided to attend a professional course in wedding planning that was held in a beautiful castle along a lake in Latium, where I have been provided with all the necessary technical information and recommendations to plan the "Perfect Day".

I work together with Susana, my partner dealing with South America, to plan not only wedding ceremonies and receptions but also special events such as marriage proposals, wedding anniversaries and birthday parties as well as book signing events and other little cultural events in Cortona.

My approach and your identity!

Every wedding ceremony and reception is tailor-made according to the needs of the marrying couple, therefore we choose together with them the venue, the style and the main theme colour. There are no prepackaged weddings: everything starts with getting to know the bride and the groom in order to identify the most important elements and features they would like to emphasize to create a dream event. I think it is very important that every couple, wherever they come from, has the chance to spend the happiest day in their life by preserving their identity, sticking to their culture and combining the local traditions with their own customs and practices.

Be it big or little, the event will be glamorous and entertaining indeed. Through our network, we have developed an exclusive portfolio of special venues allowing us to plan a unique and amazing event each time. As far as my experience is concerned, the choice of an evocative venue to hold the wedding ceremony and of a top class venue to host the reception are fundamental ingredients for a successful event. Other than classic venues of incomparable beauty, we like turning ordinary places immersed in nature into magical and unconventional venues for weddings and other events.

The joy of making dreams come true!

I like to think that I can give everyone coming to Cortona for a wedding the chance to live a unique experience. Not only for the marrying couple, but for their guests, families and friends too! I have an international clientele and it is always very challenging when people ask me to plan a comprehensive schedule of events to enhance their stay in Cortona. In this way their week spent in Italy for the wedding will be enriched with fantastic tours to the most famous art cities and nice trips in search of the treasures hidden in the little villages located between Tuscany and Umbria! In addition to that, wine tours to the most beautiful wineries are available to taste wine and regional recipes; there are full days dedicated to wellness and relaxation in the best thermal spa facilities of the area; and last but not least excellent shopping tours to the fashion designer outlets of world-renowned brands like Prada, Gucci and Armani!

Your dream at your fingertips!

People often ask themselves: - Is it expensive to hire a wedding planner?
My answer is: - Why worry about that?
The cost depends entirely on the kind of event you wish to have and mostly on the budget you intend to allocate.  I work carefully to keep on budget and ensure that every event I plan is tailor-made according to my client's needs. One of my main strengths is ensuring transparency in the different cost options.
So why worry about that? Generally speaking planning a wedding can be stressful and in a foreign country this may be even more difficult. That's why my experience, my network with the best and most reliable suppliers and service providers, and my perfect knowledge of the territory relieve the marrying couple of the stress of planning such a big event. The wedding day will be finally here and you will be totally unstressed and unworried about details.

My goal is making the happiest day in your life simply perfect and unforgettable. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Don't be doubtful, you won't regret it! You are making the right choice. Contact me right away!!!
