Thanks for Making our Big Day a Success!

Monica and her assistant, Sara, did a fantastic job of coordinating our May 11, 2017 wedding. They were so easy to work with ahead of time to ensure that we had our paperwork in order, hotel rooms and ceremony location booked, and the other necessary details. They arranged a professional photographer for us, Sophie Triay. We wanted something simple but special, just the two of us, and chose to have it on the small oceanfront terrace at the Caleta Hotel. The morning of the ceremony it poured down rain for several hours, stopping just a 1/2 hour before our scheduled 10:00 a.m. nuptials, with the sky clearing up and the sun shining. The hotel told us that the terrace was too wet and we would need to change our venue to a dark, back conference room at the hotel with no ocean view. Monica stepped in immediately and took charge, politely but firmly insisting that the ceremony be moved out onto the hotel’s terrace.  She saved the day! We were wed on the sunny terrace with the sparkling ocean behind us, exactly as we had wanted, and I didn’t need to be Bridezilla to make it happen. Monica and Sara acted as our witnesses and they both also took photos with our cell phones so that we could immediately send pictures to our family, even before the professional photos were available. I would highly recommend working with Hour Weddings, they took care of everything for us so that we didn’t have to worry, and they were a pleasure to work with.

Thank you for making our big day so special!

Wow what can i say, you made our Wedding Day the most perfect day ever!
Monica and Sara, from the first email contact  you have been brilliant, we can not Thank You both enough. You offered suggestions/recommendations of things we hadn’t even thought of, no detail was missed. You guys are fantastic at what you do.
All your planning and organisation before hand made the day go without a hitch 😉
Sara, The Sunborn setting was so amazing and your attention to detail before, during and after the ceremony was fab.
Our guests have all commented on what a beautiful, relaxed day it was. We couldn’t of done it without you both.
Thank You so much for everything, we will see you when we come back to the gem that is Gibraltar.

From the introductory email & Skype to our farewells, working with Monica, Sara, and Molly was a delight.  It can be a bit daunting entrusting such an important event to be arranged at a distance but everyone at Hour Weddings was a consumate professional and so friendly that our minds were readily put at ease.  Not only were they extremely knowledgeable, organised, efficient, and timely but they assisted us every step of the way.  Monica’s investigative work regarding ongoing building works allowed us to make the ideal choice of hotel.  Sara’s excellent attention to detail ensured that we completed the correct forms correctly.  Sara and Molly’s charming company while we waited for our ceremony made us less nervous.  And, Sara’s considerable photographic skills in capturing “the moment” were demonstrated even with my mini digital camera.    Never was a 5 star/heart rating more deserved.

Hi Sara/Monica

Everyone enjoyed the wedding. What a beautiful yacht and setting. The weather was great. I don’t think it could have gone more perfect.

The guitarist was such a nice man and we all enjoyed his tunes.

Giles was also lovely and I’m really looking forward to getting the photos back. He did mention to me that I could have a couple quickly if I needed to send Thank You messages. He said to contact you about that. So, I would be grateful if you could ask him to send a couple over to me please.

It was lovely to be in Gibraltar after so many years and we hope to visit again in the future.

Thank you for helping us with all the paperwork and the organising of wedding. We had a great day.

Kind regards

Nadine

Monica & Sara made our day so stress free & wonderful. They organised our lovely accommodation at the Elliott hotel along with our small but perfect ceremony at Gibraltar registry office, followed by small reception of drinks & nibbles at a beautiful restaurant on the marina. Gibraltar was beautiful and Monica & team were so helpful & professional. Nothing was too much or too little and I would 100% recommend hour weddings. Thanks again :)

I cannot express our gratitude enough. My partner and I chose to marry in Gibraltar 2 weeks before the day, bit last minute I know. I came across Hour weddings on the Internet. From the first email I knew I had come to the right place. Monica was extremely helpful and all was organised within days, it really took the stress out of the wedding arrangements. When we arrived Monica was there to greet us, she guided us through the whole legal process which was very straightforward, and even bought us coffee and managed early check ins for us, it was clear she was well known and liked and we could see why. She made herself available for any concerns, should we have them, and I have to say we had none, Monica had everything covered and we had, more importantly, peace of mind. I had arranged for my hair to be done and it was to a high standard. My bouquet was exactly what I had asked for, stunning. We married at the Botanical Gardens and Sara was there to meet us and ensure all went smoothly. Giles our photographer was excellent, and such a nice man. I received my photos a week later and couldn’t be happier. I have to say the whole experience was made even better by the lovely people we met in Gibraltar, priceless. I know most people say this about their wedding day, but it truly was perfect from begimning to end and we have Monica and the people of Gibraltar to thank for that xxx

Lets just start by saying Monica & co made our wedding planning seamless from day one…
Monica has a real gift… she knew from our first conversation exactly what we wanted- which was bizarre given that we’d actually really just told her what we didn’t want!
We didn’t want bling, we didn’t want a huge fuss and despite us being the bride & groom we didn’t really want to be the centre of attention either(not at our age lol!)- & with all of this in mind, we still asked Monica to deliver a memorable, special and unique experience for us and our 30 guests who would be flying out from the UK to join us.
She did exactly that & more. Delivering way above our expectations and making our wedding dreams come true.
Monica made great suggestions, being able to use her wealth of experience and talent of reading between the lines to help us plan not just our wedding day, but our pre wedding drinks reception at The Rock Hotel and our charter of the Dolphin boat to take all of our guests out on the Eve of our wedding- what a great experience that was too- the boat all to ourselves, getting to see Gib from a distance, Playful marine life, Aeroplanes landing whilst sharing drinks & nibbles!
All of our guests commented on what a wonderful wedding we had, having Monica along for the ride only made it better & I cant imagine visiting Gibraltar in the future without seeing her.
Monica, We cannot thank you enough. You became more of a friend than a wedding planner. We trusted you implicitly & you did not let us down.
For anyone reading this and contemplating a Gibraltar wedding or event- look no further, you’ve found your lady. xxx

Monica is an extremely professional lady & organised our wedding to exactly how we wanted it. The register office had booked our wedding, on a date they shouldn’t have. But Monica was brilliant & managed to get it all sorted, so we could still get married on that date. Even having to get the solicitor to open especially, for us., at no extra cost to us. We would not hesitate in recommending Monica. Very professional & a lovely lady.

Hi Monica,

As you wanted some testimonials, first of all thank you for everything you did, we were pleased with the general result and as you were asking for some suggestions, I wrote this but rather to post to you directly as this way might be more helpful.

Our super tiny  wedding was lovely and Monica and her assistant were always professional, yet welcomingand made mostly everything to run smoothly on our big day.  As I know that only the best ones seek for perfection, here are a few suggestions for improvement. At the end most of us bride(zillas) are very fussy and want our big day runs as a Swiss watch regardless how big or small is our wedding.
All the pre wedding arrangements went perfectly,  so did the ceremony, flowers, cake (i got a tiny cake that was a dream come true), the antique car was lovely and Christian was fun and chatty, perfect to defuse pre wedding nerves. The meal at the landings was delicious and the service absolutely fantastic.

However there a few things that are not super major that could be ironed to make the experience absolutely perfect. Probably us market researchers believe that truth is what makes a business to flourish even more. Sop here we go.

When I first filled the form, I picked a completely different car, yet I got quoted an antique model which i did not object as I found it charming, but not everyone loves that type of errors as it seems that tiny weddings are less important, when for the couple is still one of the most important days of their lives.  Also, if the couple picks any of the restaurants in the Marina and they get married in the Botanical Gardens, instead of suggesting walking to the restaurant, just offer a sensible package that includes bride pickup at hotel, bride and groom pickup after pictures and ceremony to take to restaurant. Many couples might not like the idea of paying a double service for five extra minutes, but a package will save them feel the discomfort and awkwardness of wearing some of the most uncomfortable garments used in ones lives under the scorching heat.

Ugly people like us expect a great photographer to make miracles :P. I would suggest to have  portfolios of a few different photographers for different budgets. That way is easier to see if their style matches the couple expectations. To finish whenever pics are ready, please send an email as clients might expect that. Otherwise we dont know if we are being too pushy in case the photographer is setting albums or touching up pics.

Overall these are very minor things we are very pleased with the results and WE are already recommending Hour Weddings and Gib as a possible wedding destination :)

We will love to go back to Gib in the near future and might contact you for some quotes. Also will continue sending some folk your way

Take care x
