Monica & her team ethos are: every wedding should be unique and utterly distinctive, no matter how extravagent or intimate. Therefore, we value the quality of our weddings over quantity. We honour all clients and work with varied budgets, no marriage is too small for us.

Our highlights? All of our clients are special, however, arranging the Chief Minister's (Gibraltar) wedding was a privilege and so was the designer John Galliano's nieces wedding!
