Travel Counsellor, Donna Bidwell:
I wanted to share with you the wedding which I arranged for a beautiful couple who I got to know so well and will always now regard them as friends. They met me while I had a stand at a local wedding fair a few years ago. They knew where they wanted to get married but they wanted to get married ahead of the time that the holidays were on sale, so it was a waiting game for the time of year they wanted to actually go and for it to be on sale. When the flights were on sale I then contacted them and was then was able to get everything arranged.
I booked Sarah and Andy along with their friends and family to fly out on the 8th October 2014, they stayed at the Dreams La Romana and got married on the 17th October 2014. I packaged up the flights, accommodation and private transfers myself rather than going with a pre packaged Tour Operator as I got a much better package for them this way and arranged their wedding through our own weddings department. This way I got to take full control of everything which made life easier for me when finding out information and questions but also my customers because I then got the information to them much quicker.
They were also kind enough to invite me to their wedding reception when they came home and they presented me with a beautiful flower arrangement which was just amazing.
Sarah and Andy kindly agreed to write a piece about why they booked with me and their thoughts on the having me arrange their wedding:
“Donna was fantastic with arranging our wedding to the very first email to walking through the front door after our amazing holiday! There was nothing Donna couldn’t do for us and I know if we hadn’t booked our wedding through Donna we wouldn’t have had such a perfect dream day! Whenever any problems arose (which there were, booking a large group having people drop out, then problems where the wedding was being held) Donna was straight on the case and everything was sorted as quickly as possible. Donna took the stress away from me and dealt with everything for me, I couldn’t imagine doing this on my own now I look back! We didn’t have to worry about a thing! Our day was just magical and we had our absolute dream wedding that we didn’t think we would have at one point but thanks to Donna (our fairy godmother!!!) she made it happen! I couldn’t recommend Donna enough, if you want a stress free, happy, perfect wedding or holiday then you must book with Donna. I have used Donna again and will definitely be using her for years to come! After all she made our dreams come true and gave us the best day of our life so far!”
