Why Via Val?

If wedding planning had been a recognised career when I was growing up, it would have been obvious what I was destined to do in life. As an Irish business graduate, my career started off in London, but then my love of the Spanish language, culture and sun brought me to Spain, where I continued with my business career. In my spare time I fed my planning passion by throwing parties, hosting dinners, stage managing plays, organising corporate events and planning friends’ weddings. It was a big step to leave job security behind and set up my own business, but it was the best decision I have ever made. I now have my dream job.

Here’s why you should choose me as your wedding planner in Barcelona:

I live in Barcelona, I know Barcelona. Having lived here since 2002, I know the city, the small towns, the Costa Brava, the Costa Dorada, the restaurants, the villas, the hotels, the musicians, the florists, the photographers, the catering companies, the transport companies, the churches, the bridal shops, the salons etc. I keep up to date with the latest trends, the new suppliers, their pricing and their policies.

I have experience. I have been organising weddings in Barcelona since 2004. So far my clients have included Irish, British, American and German couples. See what they have to say about me on the Testimonials page.

I speak the language. The ability to communicate effectively in Spanish with all of the necessary parties involved is not to be underestimated. It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to plan a wedding in Spain through English.

I enjoy it. I plan weddings because it gives me an enormous amount of satisfaction and pride to see everyone having a great time at something that I helped make happen. They say that if you like your job you will be good at it, and believe me I love my job, and it shows.

I take a personal interest in your wedding. I genuinely care! I make sure that you don’t have to worry about any of the co-ordination. You can concentrate on getting married while I concentrate on your wedding day.

Personal service. I am not a big nameless and faceless company. You can pick up the phone and talk directly to me.

Your wedding, your way. There are no packages. I listen to your needs, wants, likes and dislikes, and consequently come up with ideas for you. This is your wedding and so it will happen your way.
