We love the idea of a beach wedding; gorgeous location (shimmering sands!!), an element of relaxation around the big day, and guaranteed (well, kind of!) nice weather, so much so our Founder is getting married in November next year in Sri Lanka with the help of Gillian the Travel Counsellor. Gillian offers the following pledge:
Planning a wedding day and honeymoon is such an exciting time but it can also be quite stressful especially if you are planning a wedding abroad, my focus is to create the most memorable day for you with guidance throughout the process to make everything happen just as you dreamed. With many years’ experience behind me I love the fact I have never created the same wedding twice, each is so individual and I understand the key is in the finer details. You can relax and feel confident that I will make your unique vision a reality.
From start to finish I will offer you complete peace of mind, I will understand and respect your vision and work closely with the staff in resort to ensure a wonderful wedding with no worries.
Begin your happy ever after with a friendly helping hand from me.
