Letters of Love
Crete - October 2019
When we found Holly we weren’t even looking for a wedding planner, but after our first initial Skype call we fell in love with her bubbly and warm personality. She was open and honest, and we knew that we wanted her to help plan our special day. She made the whole process a pleasure and gave valuable insight at every step of the way.
Holly ensured that every detail we wanted came together beautifully on the day and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. The day ran very smoothly and we weren’t worried about a thing because we knew we were in good hands. Our only regret is that she won’t be around to help us plan the rest of our lives.

Holly is just amazing!
Her calm influence, professionalism and creative ideas made working with Wonderlust Events a dream.
I could not fault my wedding day, Holly worked seamlessly with all of our suppliers and I knew that my day was in very capable hands.
If anyone is considering booking a wedding planner, then hands down Holly is the lady for the job. We cannot thank you enough.
Provence - August 2019
I went into planning my French wedding thinking ‘I can do this without a wedding planner’. By the time we’d finally secured a venue I had completely changed my mind. I came across Wonderlust Events by chance on a Facebook group and after speaking to a number of other (French) planners, I had a Skype session with Holly from Wonderlust Events. We clicked immediately and I can honestly say that we would never have had the perfect wedding we had without Wonderlust Events.
People said to me ‘does it matter that your planner is not French and does not live in France?’ Absolutely not. We were looking for a planner who would understand our vision and dreams and turn them into reality and Holly did that and more. With Holly’s guidance and knowledge we were able to secure some amazing suppliers and create the personal, fun and laid back wedding weekend that was completely ‘us’. Holly was more than a wedding planner - she was our stylist, our coordinator on the day, and our friend. She calmed my many irrational fears during the planning process and ran an absolutely seamless day on the wedding day in 35 degree heat.
All we can say is, having Wonderlust Events help plan our wedding was one of the best decisions we made and we cannot thank Holly enough!
Dordogne - July 2019
We were introduced to Holly mid-way through our wedding planning. Whilst we knew we always wanted a Destination Wedding Planner, our plans took on a life of their own and lead us to Wonderlust a little down the line and I have to say, I’m so grateful they did.
From the initial call and throughout the entire process, Holly proved her weight in gold by being proactive, efficient and incredibly on top of her game while also ensuring what you are looking for and have agreed with your vendors comes through. From the contractual details that we wouldn’t have thought to question to the fun WhatsApp group that gave us butterflies where we shared excited wedding emojis and motivational pick-ups that you may need along the way as a couple. Holly was everything like that and more.
What I think is incredibly important to think about when picking your wedding planner is how they will actually react when dealing with a crisis. Our wedding was so well organised that I never foresaw any issues but when the French sun decided to excel all of our expectations and it actually be too hot, Holly was gracious, calm and more than anything so cool. She made the day flow so smoothly that no guest realised that the order of events had in fact changed. Still to this day, nearly a year on and our guests are still talking about ‘the best’ wedding they ever went to and we put that down to our amazing team and the organisation and coordination that Holly brought.
We would no doubt recommend Wonderlust Events to anyone who is looking for a Destination Wedding Planner, just make sure you laugh along the way as that’s something Holly will make sure you do!
Cyprus - May 2019
The wonderful Holly made our wedding day better than we ever imagined, it truly was everything we wanted and more! The minute we spoke to Holly we instantly clicked, she is such a beautiful person and an absolute dream to have by your side, bringing your fantasy wedding to life, guiding you through every single step.
We always wanted to get married in Cyprus, a special place to us and our family, however we did not know where to begin with finding our venue, all we knew was that we wanted somewhere exclusive to us and without Holly we most certainly would not have found our hidden little gem, me being the first british bride to get married here. Holly made our countryside venue look absolutely stunning.
Throughout all the planning process and on the day Holly was so supportive and patient, professional and very organised. The very best communication (truly deserved that medal for putting up with me). Holly listened to what we wanted and gave us amazing ideas along the way, she took all the stress away from us and made our planning process nothing but fun and super exciting.
Holly found all the best suppliers and ran the day perfectly from start to finish which left us feeling fully relaxed and able to simply enjoy every single second of our day. Holly went above and beyond, making our day what it was. We are so grateful for having Holly not only for planning and coordinating the day and the year running up to it but also for planning our show arounds, meeting drinks and meeting with us in the UK to go through plans and ideas.
Its fair to say you are in safe hands with Holly from Wonderlust Events and we cannot recommend her highly enough.
Italy - April 2019
Holly is the reason our wedding turned out better than we ever imagined. She listened to all of our ideas and helped us bring our fantasy wedding to life. She was patient, supportive, helpful, and thorough. She was able to organise our wedding on Laghi di Fusine, a place that had never had a wedding before, found all the suppliers, and coordinated the events of the day. We had the most fantastic day and having Holly there to organise and support us meant everything went off without a hitch.
Most people tell us about the stress of their wedding (especially destination weddings) and things going wrong, but we didn't experience any of that and that's because of Holly's hard work. 10/10 would recommend!
UK - Sept 2018
To sum Holly up, she was our wedding day fairy godmother. We honestly couldn’t have managed our wedding day without her and she was hands down the best investment we made throughout the whole of the wedding process. She is truly wonderful at what she does and is an all round superstar with all things wedding.
Nothing was ever too much trouble or too small a detail, which for us as a couple was so important as we had so many little details throughout the day. She was always on hand to answer any queries of questions on the lead up to the day and shared her knowledge and advice, which was so gratefully received. She’s a real pro and has so much experience, making some great suggestions that made the day run so much more smoothly.
She made the whole day an absolute breeze for us which allowed us to thoroughly enjoy every moment with our guests and not worrying about any of the suppliers or scheduling. She took everything into her own hands, managing the day to perfection, all with a smile on her face and the most positive attitude.
We faced a few curveballs on the day, mainly the pouring rain, none of which phased Holly, she acted quickly and professionally, rearranging and changing plans where necessary. Our guests would never have known the original plan and that was all down to Holly.
So the biggest thank you for being so fabulous!
Athens - August 2017
'We want to say a massive thank you to Wonderlust Events. We used them to plan our wedding and manage the running of the day, we couldn't be more happy with how amazing they made our day!
I would highly recommend using them! Their attention to detail and design ideas are so helpful when trying to plan such large events like a wedding, they really do take the stress away which leaves you able to enjoy your special day!
Thanks all and especially Holly'
