“Above & Beyond” ecco dove voglio portare tutte le mie spose. Sono molti anni che lavoro come wedding planner ed ancora non riesco a non emozionarmi quando vedo la sposa nel meraviglioso abito che ha sempre sognato.
Nel corso del tempo ho affrontato tante sfide diverse con i miei sposi. Credo fortemente nel lavoro in team e so ascoltare molto bene. Raccogliere tutte le informazioni e i desideri per creare il giorno di cui si è sempre parlato e sognato. Il mio principio guida è che niente è impossibile.
Ho frequentato e frequento: corsi e convegni e symposium e masters, ma continuo a credere che al di là delle competenze primarie e basilari, che oramai ho acquisito, sia importante sempre confrontarsi con i colleghi; ma soprattutto questo lavoro lo faccio perché guidata da una profonda passione che mi dà la voglia di continuare a scoprire nuove spose e nuove sensazioni che solo il giorno del matrimonio sanno trasmettermi. Lavorare per creare il momento perfetto mi da sempre tanta energia e non vedo l’ora di iniziare ancora e ancora.
“Above and Beyond” this was supposed to be the name of the company I started long ago, but then we had to add the magic words Tuscan and Weddings, since just the name I chose was too generic.

Above & Beyond Tuscan Weddings helped us plan our wedding in Chianti, Tuscany. We stayed in beautiful Villa Vistarenni for our three-day wedding celebration.
Simona Coltellini from Above & Beyond Tuscan Weddings is a miracle maker! She is professional and easy to work with. She put our thoughts and wishes into reality and it was fun planning our wedding with her.
She kept us on track with quick and transparent communication and made everything so simple and easy from afar.
We went to Tuscany for a few days in February 2016 for the food and wine tasting, to check the venue and talk to the florist. Simona made our stay there so comfortable and easy. She offered herself to be the chauffeur when we went to see the vendors, and of course this was perfect as we really enjoyed the food and wine tasting!
Our wedding day arrived and Simona was there from the morning to late night and made sure everything was perfect the whole way through. We couldn't believe how beautiful everything looked. Simona created our dream wedding and we enjoyed every moment of it. The tasty Italian food and the fine wines, the music equipment and lights, my hair and make up, the flowers and my bridal bouquet were just Above and Beyond my expectations!
We are thankful to Simona for her expertise and support. We are forever grateful for the work, commitment, passion and enthusiasm that she demonstrated for our wedding. Those three days were the best days of our lives!
We absolutely recommend Simona as your wedding planner if you are planning a wedding in sunny Tuscany!
Simona from Above and Beyond Tuscan Weddings made our dreams come true. My husband and I are from Canada and wanted a gorgeous Tuscany wedding. From the moment I contacted Simona she was beyond helpful and caring. She perfectly executed the wedding of our dreams. She also went out of her way to help find the perfect accommodations for our guests. We couldn't be happier. Grazie!
There is no way I could have planned an overseas wedding without Simona's help. From recommending suppliers to liaising with the venue, she was indispensable in bringing every last detail together. She was always available to talk and travelled to and from the venue and to meet me whenever I needed her help, including with suppliers in various cities many times in the year before the wedding. She's really easy to talk to, and always stays extremely calm, even in the face of a crisis! She took care of my mother's needs and was fantastic with my kids, bringing together everything behind the scenes with subtlety and grace. We would recommend Simona to anyone!
My husband and I got married at Castello di Gargonza in July 2016 with the help of Simona Coltellini as our planner. Organising a wedding from London meant that we needed to find someone that we could put our trust in to help us make our vision of our wedding day a reality. We met with Simona in Florence before deciding on our venue and date to talk through the services she could provide and what our expectations were. Soon after, we booked the date and signed Simona up as our planner.
We decided to visit Tuscany a couple of times before the wedding so Simona organised for us to meet/speak with all of the various suppliers including florist, photographer, DJ and hair/makeup artist which was great and made us feel much more comfortable planning from a distance. She also put us in touch with a colleague who helped us to complete all of the religious and civil paperwork we needed in order to marry in Italy. Simona had planned a wedding at our venue previously so was able to offer advice specific to the location and it meant we could also look at pictures to help us decide what we wanted.
It was invaluable having Simona there on the wedding day and the evening before. She ensured everything ran seamlessly and this meant we could really relax and enjoy the day with our nearest and dearest without worrying about a thing. We had a fabulous time and everything was just as we hoped it would be.
Thank you Simona for all of your help in making our wedding day unforgettable!
Abbiamo conosciuto Simona dal nostro fotografo. Simona mi ha impressionato la prima volta che abbiamo chattato: è incredibilmente competente e disinvolta. Per ogni domanda che ho, Simona propone sempre soluzioni che ci soddisfano. Anche Simona ha una personalità adorabile. Puoi sentire le vibrazioni fredde da lei e rilassarti. Consiglierei Simona senza esitazione!
