Kathryn and Carl Villa Giona
Symbolic Ceremony Villa Giona
Dear Marion, Franco and Paolo,
Well a couple of weeks have gone past since the wedding and the happy couple are away on honeymoon and soaking up the sun, and it is time to reflect on the events of the past couple of weeks such as could anything have been improved on etc etc - definately not it was perfect!
It was fabulous wasnt it - given the minor problems of the ash cloud followed by the mini tornedo it is amazing the wedding was able to go ahead at all but it did and it was just perfect. Everyone who went to Villa Giona has said that the wedding was the best they have ever been to and that it was a very special and intimate experience that we all shared. A 'little bit of rain' on the day didnt spoil it one bit and in fact added to the occasion.
Nigel and I would like to thank you all and your staff making Kathryn and Carl's wedding so wonderful. Everyone was professional on the day and the DJ was a success with everyone - he reflected the mood of the day perfectly and we loved 'singing in the rain' while everyone dashed for cover. Also the choice of music with the fireworks enhanced the whole display - I am so pleased I did go ahead with them, they were splendid and complete a very emotional and joyful memory of the day. I also timed telling Nigel to perfection - while he was watching them!!!
Thank you once again for letting us enjoy the beauty of Villa Giona and helping to make Kathryn and Carls day so special.

Parents of the Bride.
Following on from Roz and Nigel’s e-mail, we would also like to echo their comments and genuinely thank you all for providing such an amazing experience. Quite often the Groom is happy to go along with the Brides wishes and not too fussed on the minor(!) details like the venue, however you may have gathered now that Carl likes to give a performance at every opportunity and likes to impress when he finds something out of the ordinary. From his first visit to Villa Giona last March (2010 ) Carl was certain they had found an extraordinary place and perfect for his marriage to the beautiful Kathryn. Giuseppe was marvellous and made it such an intimate but friendly service, we have some great footage of him and Carl having a chat before the ceremony like they had know each other for years. Like Roz we thought the DJ to be excellent and liked the way he helped out moving the furniture when the rain started before beginning his “proper” role. The firework display was indeed an emotional and spectacular event, also the cutting of the cake and so many fantastic memories, too many to mention. Most guests had looked at your website prior to the wedding and all said it still exceeded expectations. Our only disappointed was that the three days went so quickly, it would have been lovely to have spent a few more days enjoying the Villa and Verona, but we have to return to the real world sometime! For both families this is the first wedding and with 3 more children between us, you never know we may be booking a repeat performance in the future!
Arriverci e grazie di tutto
