Italian Wedding Planner

Dream Academy is a British/Italian company based in Italy.

Born in Scotland, Marion started her career teaching music where her natural dynamic and artistic expressions continue to shine today as she composes all of her weddings with the professionalism, technical skills, precision and emotions of any orchestral conductor.


On moving to Italy nearly 20 years ago she has built up an extensive repertoire and valuable experience working for some of the UK and Italy's leading Tour Operators & Travel Agencies, which has given her a 360° vision of the travel & hospitality industry.

Marion says "With the many contacts and experience I have gained in this field, I know exactly what to do and who to call should your travel plans need a tweak and I can get lost airline luggage to you in quick step time !!!

Marion created her own dream when she obtained her tour opertors license and created Dream Academy.

Born from her passion for the travel trade and the wedding & event industry she created Dream Academy to share this love with the many happy couples who look are planning a Destination Wedding in Italy.

She says, "I use this license to be able to give a fully legal and professional service to all our happy couples".

“I have worked in many fine venues and with lots of lovely people, and when I find a place that takes my breath away then I want to share that with my lovely couples.

For example, from my very first visit to Villa Giona, which is now our flagship venue and where I am in house wedding planner, I was treated like a Princess and made to feel like the villa was there just for me”

I vowed that the feelings I had experienced there would be something I will always endevour to pass onto my lovely brides. They are my very own princesses and deserve only the best !

As Leading Wedding Planner on the UK market  in Verona and Le Marche, Marion says “I feel like I am the luckiest lady in the world and I want to give you all the chance to live, breath and love this magic too as I truly believe there is no place on earth quite like Italy for your special day.

I am just so lucky to live and work in such  beautiful little corners of paradise and to lead our team of lovely professional people who share the same dream.

I just love what I do and seeing the end results is always such a great feeling. I have to admit to always shedding a tear or two at all my weddings and many of our couples go on to become friends for life.

Our contact with all of happy couples goes on well beyond the actual wedding day and we just love keeping in touch and hearing your news when you have a new member of the family or that you have moved into a new home, changed jobs etc. Our Xmas card list grows longer and fonder each year!
