As a lover of gatherings and celebrations, I am always on the lookout for the ideal venue, in the most special of settings – something perfect for a specific client. From the moment I was introduced to the Reschio Estate, and its 11th century castle turned boutique hotel, I was in love!
Located in the rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside, Castello di Reschio was designed for living – from weddings to milestone celebrations, and everything in between.
Yes, the setting is beautiful, and quintessentially Italian, however it’s the design and absolute attention to detail that wins me over – I can’t wait to visit, but I’m scared I might never leave!

The instant I stepped off the plane, I knew there was something very special about Marrakech. Six years, and almost a dozen or so weddings and celebrations later, I’m still amazed at the effects the red city has on the senses. Where it’s perfectly normal for a family of five on a donkey and carriage to be trotting along the street next to the latest chauffeur driven Range Rover.
You’ll need to plan a trip for yourself, but in the meantime, here are a few of my favourite places.

There is something so personal and intimate about elopements. It’s a privilege to witness a genuine expression of love and commitment between two people. When California residents Shanna & Paul got in contact, the brief was “an English garden setting with a background of Georgian architecture”. The perfect choice was the Nash Conservatory at Kew Gardens.
A memorable moment for me was being asked to be a witness for their civil ceremony. I got quite emotional!
The next day the couple left on their European holiday/honeymoon. We organised for postcards to be sent to their families and friends, announcing their elopement just as they returned home.
