“Val, myself and Donal just want to express how grateful we are to you, Mireia and Africa for everything. Ye were absolutely amazing, calm, relaxed, professional, caring, efficient, classy, I could keep going all day. And ye did all this with such a sense of fun.
From start to finish everything was perfect. It was the best day of our lives and we’ll never forget it.

The feedback from family and friends has also been amazing.

Special thanks to Africa for helping me tie up the bustle of my dress. That was some laugh!!!
I’ll be recommending ye to everyone back home.
Take care and thanks again.”

Inna and I are still dazed and amazed with what you pulled off for our wedding. It was phenomenal, off the charts. You are the best! We could not be happier with how our wedding turned out last night. There was not a single thing we would have changed – it was done to perfection! We loved you and your wonderful team and are so happy we chose Barcelona to get married. You are simply amazing. Thank you!!!”
Inna & Norman, July  2016   

“Valarie and Mireia and the rest of the team did an amazing job! We had the most fantastic wedding ever! Valerie and Mireia helped us out with finding the right venue 12 months ago and since then, they were there for us helping us with every step on the way. Being thoughtful, creative and practical, they took care of finding the right suppliers for us to make our days in Sitges truly amazing! On the day itself everything was taken care of by the team in a professional and warm way. Valerie and Mireia are great ladies to work with, we would certainly recommend them! Thank you ladies!! It was truly truly wonderful!!”
Annemieke & Friedwart, July 2016

“We booked with Weddings Via Val a little over a year in advance of our wedding and Valerie was in constant contact with us throughout the entire wedding planning process via phone and e-mail. She certainly went above and beyond our expectations and most definitely proved her worth! Valerie was particularly excellent at recommending vendors based on our style and our needs. Her taste and recommendations were invaluable to us as neither myself nor my fiancé visited the Church or reception venue before booking. We fully trusted her suggestions… and it certainly paid off! We had the wedding of our dreams and our guests had an experience they will not soon forget! Both Valerie and Mireia are a dream to work with, very warm and personable. We were extremely pleased with the level and quality of service we received. If you are looking for expert professionals that love their jobs and do it flawlessly, I strongly recommend Weddings Via Val. Trust me… you will not regret it!”
Sarah & Dan, October 2015

“Hi Valerie,

We totally loved everything about the wedding – seriously everything. People have not stopped talking about it and are still telling us how much they enjoyed it.
We’ll be having a house warming at some point – and would love you to come over. Equally it is our intention to take you our for lunch in the New Year to say a proper thank you – so have a think on a suitable restaurant.
In the meantime have a great Christmas and New Year!
Speak to you soon,
Simon x”
Simon & Nick, October 2015

WeddingsviaVal were exceptional from start to finish. They really took the pressure off by taking charge of all the difficult parts of the wedding like the catering, and came up with little personal touches that we hadn’t even thought of! Valerie and her team’s experience and professionalism really showed on the day and everyone is still raving about the wedding almost a year on. We couldn’t have done it without you guys, thank you so much. Kate and Ed.”
Kate & Ed, September 2015

“Hi Valerie,
We just wanted to thank you and especially Mireia for making our wedding day
so amazing. Mireia and Àfrica were brilliant on the day itself, ensuring
everything ran smoothly, even making sure all our guests got taxis home at
the end of the night. All your suggestions and contacts were brilliant. The
band had everyone up dancing and the dancefloor was packed from the moment
the DJ came until the end. The extra little touches made it extra special.
Made the photos fab too. Everyone was raving about the pizzas and delighted
we had Barrys teabags for the day!
Looking back on the photos we can’t believe 6 months have passed already and
yet it was only 1 year ago when we met you for the first time. We wouldn’t
have been able to pull off organising a wedding abroad in 6 months so thank
you both again. Also thanks for your patience with the ‘to and fro’ with the
Best of luck with all your weddings this year, I’m sure they will all have
amazing days with you guys at the helm!
Best Wishes
Anne-Marie and Emmet McAdam”

Hi Val,
Finally back to reality..(and work L) after a whirlwind few weeks at Casa Felix then onto honeymoon.
We would just like to say a massive thanks for your input, made our lives much more easy & stress free (certainly mine…) and really made the day perfect.
Once again thanks for everything.

“Mireia and Val!!!
We had the best weekend ever and it would not have been the same without you. We had so much fun on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and it was so emotional and crazy and there were so many happy faces. We could not have had better wedding planners than the two of you! It was too much fun to do it only once!! We might need you again in 5 years! (20th June 2020 is a Saturday!!) Thanks for everything! Helga & Javier”
Helga & Javier, June 2015

“Hi Val, 

I wanted to send you a thank you for making my day unforgettable. You are truly amazing and I hope you know that I credit my perfect day to you and Mireia entirely. You have a gift. Thank you for going above and beyond in everything that you did and making every encounter we had working with you an absolute joy. My day was a perfect fairytale, a dream come true, and it wouldn’t have come close without you. Words can’t even express how grateful I am to you both, even this thank you seems understated. I couldn’t have imagined what I was signing up for with you, it was so much more than I ever expected. You were not only a true professional, but you were also my friend – always on my side and someone I could confide in. You took every request, change, and curve ball I threw at you in stride and I hope you know how much I appreciate you and everything you did.
I hope you know how amazing you are, and I hope to hear you are planning your wedding soon!
Forever grateful, 
Rachael & Lance”
Rachael & Lance, June 2015

“Hi Valerie and Mireia (Dream Team!!!!)
Hope you are both keeping well. It’s been a month since the wedding and we are back to reality, the last few weeks have given us a good chance to reflect on the brilliant week we had in sitges.
We are just emailing to thank you so much for being a very important part of our wedding day.
We could not have done it without you. From our first meeting it was a pleasure to deal with you, and to meet Mireia during our visit in April. Everyone of your contacts were brilliant, Ricardo, Fr Carles, Jon, Willie, Esteban, red velvet, the florist, Michael and Angie. They all did a fabulous job individually and came together on the day perfectly.
You put together an amazing wedding for us and we thank you both for the effort you put in before and especially on the day. We will never forget it.
Everyone had a fabulous time, they are still talking about it and we would do it all again in a heartbeat.
Hopefully our paths will cross again In Barcelona or Ireland!!
Lots of love
Claire and Brian”

Excellent attention to detail, maximising our budget at every opportunity to deliver a truly exceptional day, even our guests were complimenting them! Would recommend in a heartbeat!”

“Hi Valerie, 
Thank You so so so much for everything you did for us in the run up to the wedding and on our Big Day. It was such an incredible weekend. You were just
amazing the whole way through the planning and the event –  right up to when you (very sensibly) kicked the band out for us! That could have potentially ended up a disaster without you.
I’ve loved working with you – you’re so organised and meticulous, but you manage to keep the creativity and individuality there too. 
If you ever need a review or recommendation we’d be delighted to. Although I’m sure you don’t need any more – everyone knows you’re fab. 
Luckily my dress is hand-washable so actually looks pretty good despite its pool experience! 
Thanks again,  we had the most amazing weekend ever. 
Big hugs, 
Elle xx”

“Dear Val and Mireia, 
We are now back in Zurich after what seemed like a whirlwind week and coming down from the high of our wedding day. We both had an amazing day, and just wanted to simply say ‘THANK YOU’ for your help in making it all come together. Many of our guests commented to us afterwards how professional you all were, and even though we were running slightly behind at times you made everything work and fit together. 
Nearly all of our guests have also gushed about the quality of the food which was just delicious, fantastically presented and in copious quantities! The caterers really surpassed even what we had hoped for and it also says a lot that our guests left well fed and happy. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Josep. The cake and the cookies were also amazing, we were just sad we couldn’t take the cake with us. 

I’m sure we’ll still be in touch but just wanted to make sure we passed this feedback and our appreciation on to you 🙂 
Take care and speak again soon 
Mel & Simon”

“Hi Valerie, Back in Ireland now and slowly getting back to reality although everyone wants to be back in Sitges. I think every single person has decided to holiday there again, everyone loved it. I honestly can’t thank you enough for everything. I had the most amazing week and I couldn’t have done it without you. Every single person you recommended was amazing. The whole thing went so smoothly and meant we could really relax on the day and enjoy it. Everyone is singing your and Mireia’s praises, no-one more than me. I’m 100% sure that it won’t be the last time we’re in Sitges. Apparently the whole wedding party is going back for our 5 year anniversary!!
Thanks so much again, I’m so so grateful.

“Where do we begin 😉 We had the most wonderful day and this was down to the lovely Val and Mireia. Super-efficient, friendly and professional, they were simply fantastic ! they were on hand throughout the day until the early hours or the morning .They also have some great contacts which helped to make our day so amazing. We cannot thank them enough for helping in making our day so special and memorable . They are the best most professional and capable wedding planners in Barcelona ..thanks again guys . Joan and Paul x”
Joan & Paul, October 2014

“16 months in the planning for one amazing weekend. We can’t thank Val and Mireia enough for helping us pull off our dream wedding. To have our guests label it the “best wedding ever” is more of a compliment than we could ever have hoped for, and Val and her team can be very proud of what they achieved for us. In the run up to the wedding several people commented on how relaxed we looked, and we replied that if we did it was because we had complete confidence in Val to deliver. And deliver she did. We’d change absolutely nothing about our day; it was just perfect. Thank you, Val. It couldn’t have been better. Chris & Neil”
Chris & Neil, October 2014

Hi Val, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and Mireia for the wedding day and all the planning beforehand. It ran really smoothly and I didn’t feel feel stressed on the day apart from being really nervous! Massive thank you again for everything. Emma and Phil x”
Emma & Phil, September 2014

“We knew about Valerie because she was also my brother’s wedding planner four years ago. She did an amazing job for him and an amazing job for us. She is super-efficient, really helpful and completely listens to your thoughts & ideas but also makes great suggestions if you’re unsure about something. We trusted Valerie 100% and she certainly didn’t let us down. As a result of years of experience she has developed some really strong positive relationships with caterers, florists, bands and many more. Relationships that you as the couple really benefit from. She’s honest, fun and highly organized. Both myself and my husband highly recommend Val – she won’t let you down.”

Nicola & Tom, July 2014

“Hi Valerie, Thank you so much for being our wedding planner!! We knew as soon as we met you that you’d do a fantastic job. We had so many questions, you were so patient and always got back to us so quickly. We loved our wedding day so much and our guests still talk about it. Everything from the location, venue, food, music, florist, photographer, hair/ makeup etc was perfect – all booked on your recommendations! We’re going to miss you and our little trips to Barcelona! We wish you all the very best in the future. Lots of love Catherine & Roy”

Catherine & Roy, May 2014


“Hi girls

Well, what can I say? A huge huge thank you to you both from the bottom of our hearts. We had the most wonderful fun and magical day thanks to you both. It was seamless, well thought out and so much fun. You were both wonderful and we have had amazing feedback from all our friends and family.
We just got home yesterday after a very very hectic and busy week. I would have written earlier to thank you but I just didn’t seem to have a quiet moment to sit down and do you justice with my message.
I have so many precious memories: the run up to the ceremony feeling a little bit sick and a little bit excited, the magical ceremony itself from start to finish, the amazing catering (so so many great comments and compliments from everyone), the guitarist, the photos, the making of the videos, the band, the venue, the dessert buffet, the sword, the dancing and all thanks to you both. There are so many more but you get the gist. It is so lovely to have the videos and photos to look back on and stir the memories.
What enabled us to just enjoy the day was how smoothly everything went and how you just dealt with everything without us needing to be involved in everything – all done with a huge amount of professionalism, calmness and light-heartedness. I really hope that you both had fun too and that you are going to be featuring in our videos and photos!!
So once again, thank you both. You were excellent and we had the most magical wonderful day, week, wedding.
Lots of love and wishing you all the best for your own adventures, baby, doggie, relationships, professional life and everything else.
Love from Arnla, Laith, Mischa and Lyoto

“Hi Ladies

I cant speak highly enough of the job you guys did for us. My wife Lene and i, had no stress or worries or concerns on the day due to the great conversations we had with you before the wedding. Your great knowledge of Olivella and Barcelona ensured we had such an amazing and beautiful wedding.
Even after the wedding you guys were very quick and professional in fixing the urgent paperwork we needed back here in Norway.
Such amazing feedback from our guests means you guys did a fantastic job. And yes even the money we spent on the flowers was well worth it
Thank you guys again for everything, the day was perfect . You guys really did give us a wedding beyond our expectations.
Thanks again

“Ah thank you for thinking of us on our First Wedding Anniversary!! Can you believe it is 1 year already! All the messages came pouring in for our anniversary each of them still saying Barcelona was the best trip ever! What I’d give to do it all again and I would not change a minute of it, everything was perfection, so thanks to you and Mireia again for giving us such amazing memories to hold onto.”

Eimear & Marcus, May 2013

My husband and I spoke to about 10 wedding planners before agreeing we liked Val’s style the most. We didn’t have a clue of what we wanted and needed someone to really help us decided on pretty much everything; theme, colors, date, venue, flowers, dress, everything! She was very patient with us and guided us in the right direction. The day of the wedding was seamless. Whenever I peeked out of the room I would see Valerie running around and working her butt off to make sure everything was perfect. She even took care of decor details. The only time I felt stressed was when I was saying my vows! She did a wonderful job. I couldn’t imagine the day without her!”

Everything was perfect and our family and friends still talk about it being the best wedding they’ve been to. We have such fond memories of our time in Sitges and a lot of that is thanks to you and Mireia. So, thanks again and hope everything is going great for you! Mairead and Kartik”

“Valerie I wanted to thank you so so much for such an amazing wedding day. It was really perfect. I had such an amazing night i cannot thank you enough. I rea
lly appreciate all of your help over the last year plus and especially over the last 5 days. It got very stressful there for a moment and i think you were the only one keeping us all together. Thank you so so so so much. I think you are by far the best wedding planner in Spain (if not the world!)”
Lauren & Christian, September 2012


You gave us a dream wedding. Flying in from the U.S. we knew we had to have a reliable planner—one who was well-connected and committed.
You exceeded our expectations. Your work behind the scenes made our Catholic wedding possible: from gathering the necessary paperwork to booking a chapel and Deacon. We are so appreciative for that! Poble Espanyol was the perfect chapel, and our time in the village was exceptional. Barcelona truly is a city founded on love. We are so grateful to have shared our experience with you, and so grateful that you made our dream a reality. Thank you so much! We will be sure to look you up when we return to Spain.”
Alicia & Todd, September 2012

“Valerie was amazing, we couldn’t have been luckier in finding a more professional and genuine wedding planner. She is so passionate about her job and knows howto get it done. From the start, she got a great sense of who we were and what we were looking for. She connected with us and we connected with her, she has a right mixture of understanding what we as a non-Spanish couple hoped for with our wedding abroad and got it done. She’s very up to date about venue options in Barcelona and outside the city, she’s well connected to vendors (venues, florists, caterers, photographers, videographers, hair and makeup, ect), and set everything up for us with such great organization, we were able to hit the ground running each time we came to Barcelona and make informed decisions. Coming from the States, it seemed impossible at first to pull off a wedding in Spain, but working with Valerie simply made a lot easier than we had imagined. She worked well long distance over email, skype, and phone.. Valerie and her assistant Mireia were integral in coordinating our rehearsal dinner at the Textile Museum located in the Gothic Quarter, our ceremony and reception at Sant Miquel del Fai, and a Sunday brunch on the beach for 100 guests. In addition to our big events, she and her team organized group rates at several hotels in Barcelona, helped coordinate welcome bags for all of our guests, and oversaw so many details we never would have thought of. Valerie is very organized and thorough, she kept a detailed check list in order to make sure we addressed all items from A to Z. She left no detail unfinished or set aside, when our wedding weekend kicked off, we knew exactly what was going to happen, even if the unexpected happened. Valerie is personable, engaging, fun to be around, and it’s obvious she wanted to make sure our events were memorable and what we dreamed they would be. Throughout the process, we developed not just a trusting connection with Valerie and Mireia, but we also formed a great friendship. Planning a wedding can obviously be extremely stressful at times, so the fun and laughter went a long way! We could not have planned our wedding without her, it simply could not have turned out as perfect as it did without the experience and passion she brought to the table. We had shopped around quite a bit in the beginning with different wedding coordinators in Barcelona, thankfully we found Valerie and Weddings Via Val!!”
Carrie & Jason, August 2012

“Dear Valerie, I just wanted to write to thank you for making our day the best of our lives! The attention to detail was amazing and the day was everything I hoped it would be. All of our friends and family still talk about the wedding and how much fabulous food there was! My only regret is that I didn’t eat enough of the canapés as my dress wouldn’t allow me to breathe haha!
You made the whole process easy and stress free and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Thanks again to you and Mireia.
Lou and Paul xx”

“Valerie, thank you so much for all your help in organising our wedding. We had a perfect few days in Barcelona and your help was invaluable! Your knowledge of the local area and people is amazing and you did all your work with a great spirit – keep up the good work! Don’t be a stranger!
Maria and Adrian Sealy” 
Maria & Adrian, September 2011

“Dear Valerie,
We always knew we wanted to have a wedding abroad to bring our friends and family to a party that they would never forget! From our very first meeting with you, we knew you would be just the person to bring our dreams into reality. Any request we made was neither too big nor too small and you really went above and beyond anything we would have ever expected in a wedding planner. Each and every one of your recommendations fitted our day to perfection, from the venue, to the flowers and the photographers and food. You took the time to get to know us and as a result knew exactly the sort of day we had in mind!
Our wonderful memories of our wedding in Spain we owe all to you for making it possible. We cannot thank you enough.
All our love,
Kate and Kieran xxx”
Kate & Kieran, June 2011

Val, we have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you for all your hard work for our wedding last month. We really had an amazing day, and our friends and family are still talking about how fantastic it was, especially the venue. Your input really helped us not to have to worry about anything and enabled us to just enjoy ourselves. We were very happy with everything, especially Esteban and Jon Wedge, who were both great. The food was absolutely delicious and ceremony very good. All in all, we feel our wedding (and the whole week) couldn’t have gone better. You did us proud thanks and if you need a reference, please feel free to direct any prospective client to us.”
Judith & Mark, 2011

“Hi Valerie, I would just like to thank you for organizing the wedding. I thought the day was brilliant, I was delighted with the church, the singing was outstanding and the priest went down a treat. The reception was great as well, Torre Del Pi looked fab and the band and catering staff did a great job, so thanks very much for making the day so memorable for us.
Kind Regards, Ronan.”
Claire & Ronan, October 2010

“Hi Valerie,
Finally we are getting around to thanking you for all of your hard work and support and professionalism leading up to and during the wedding. We had such an amazing day, it was like a fairy tale, and so relaxed as we knew everything was in your capable hands.
Bye for now, 
Suz and Mick” 
Suzanne & Mick, September 2010

“Simply put, we could neither have organised nor enjoyed our wedding without Valerie – if you are planning to celebrate your wedding in Barcelona or Sitges hiring this woman should be the first thing you do! With our wedding being in Sitges, and neither of us Spanish speakers, we understood that we would need the help of someone that knew the local area and spoke Spanish! At first the idea of using a wedding planner seemed a bit extravagant but we soon realised it was a neces
sity… Through the planning stages Valerie was amazing and (patiently) took us through a myriad of options in response to all of our requests. She dealt with the church, found us a fantastic English speaking priest, convinced the organist to play a specific piece of music for us, brokered deals with all the suppliers and much much more – all things with which we would have struggled being neither local nor native speakers. On the actual day Valerie and her assistant surpassed themselves… against all the odds it poured with rain and the contingency plans we had discussed had to be implemented. Our reception was set-up inside (it had been planned outside), the welcome drinks relocated from the pool-side to the morrocan lounge, the bar set up under an awning, tables rolled away to clear a dance floor, transport pushed back, umbrellas found and so on… but none of this was an issue – it was seamless and no-one even realised it was meant to be any other way! Indeed, as it turned out, everything was just perfect. As my husband said in his speech: “…everyone needs a Valerie in their life”!”
Claire & Martin, June 2010

“Valerie, I would like to just thank you so so much for making our wedding such a special day. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. All our family and friends couldn’t agree more. You arranged the wedding with such precise detail, and your experience and professional background really shone through I knew from the first phone call we had that I could trust you with our most important day. You kept me well informed on every last detail and made it so easy for our guests to book hotels, etc. You made us feel at ease right from the start and you have a great sense of humour! You looked after us ALL day and met all our needs. It was such a stress free, memorable day. Thanks so much.”
Joanne & Rick, June 2010


“Valerie, thank you, thank you and thank you again! For all of your help, support and great ideas over the last 18 months and of course in making the big day happen. We could not have done it without you. You do a great job so keep up the good work. Thank you again for everything, it’s been amazing, it was a fab day and everyone loved it. You’re the best! Let us know if you come to London and we can have a drink with you and we will definitely contact you when we come to Barcelona next.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Sophie & Toby”
Sophie & Toby, June,


“Dear Valerie,
Thank you so much for all your help and efforts to make everything so special both for the party and the wedding. To say we enjoyed the whole experience would be an understatement. Everyone enjoyed the pre-party at Air Coco and the general view on the Wedding day was that it was ‘magical’ with particularly favourable comments on the food. I gather the party went on for most of the night with the pool also coming into use! It has been a pleasure to know you and I hope all continues to go well with you.
Kind regards. Allan and Irene xx”
Allan & Irene (parents of the bride), June 2010

“Valerie, we had a fantastic time and were delighted with the way the wedding day went. Our guests haven’t stopped talking about their trip to Tossa De Mar, they had a ball. Thank you so much for all your of efforts in organising a very special day for us. The service you provided us with was top class and your attention to detail and organisation skills were exceptional. Thanks again!”

Janice & Ian, May 2010


“Valerie you were such a huge help in our wedding preparations, we couldn’t have arranged a wedding abroad without you. Thanks for arranging everything from the catering and the coach hire, to the fire torches in the garden! We had a fantastic day and that was largely due to your hard work. And thanks for dealing with all of the last-minute changes to the plan!
Thanks again Valerie”
