With her meticulous eye for detail and ample experience, Ilaria creates unforgettable events that couples and their guests will treasure for years to come. Ilaria Valerio approached for the first time to the wedding industry in 2013 helping other wedding planners and officially began her career in 2018 working in a magnificent castle as a wedding coordinator for two years. After completing her master’s degree in 2020, she established Ilaria Weddings to help couples from around the world plan their dream Tuscan weddings.

It is her job to ensure that everything meets couples’ requirements and to solve problems as soon as they arise. Ilaria is renowned for her calm composure and ability to create bespoke weddings that fit customers’ needs and desires. One satisfied client shares: “Ilaria went above and beyond for us. On our wedding day, it was like having a sister by my side, checking everything was perfect and updating us step by step so we could enjoy every minute. She saved us money by selecting the right vendors and carefully listened to all our requests. She is a wonderful wedding planner, and now also a friend for life.” Tuscany is one of Italy’s most popular wedding destinations due to its breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and delicious cuisines. Ilaria curates dream tuscan destinations such as medieval villages, castles and farm houses facing spectacular vineyards or splendid rolling hills to provide the perfect backdrop for clients’ celebrations of love. Ilaria loves her country and passes it on with passion to couples who decide to choose Tuscany as a destination for their weddings. Once the couple has chosen their dream venue, Ilaria Weddings will work with some of the best professionals in the industry to make sure each wedding is special. If couples select a venue that does not provide a catering service, the team can suggest an independent external catering service to create a delectable wedding menu for them. Photography is another important aspect of the day and Ilaria works with worldclass Italian and European photographers and videographers to capture the event in style. Customers reside at the heart of Ilaria Weddings and the business offers several exclusive wedding packages to help the event run smoothly.
