Toni and Neil wedding by Dubrovnik Event 2017

So we received our wedding certificate today… its official! Mr and Mrs Whiffin!! 😊
Thank you also for the amazing book, which features the beautiful Villa Ruza and their recipe for our favourite starter – shrimp Tempura – although I am certain we will never make them as good!
What a truly incredible time we had, it blew our guests away and by far exceeded even our own expectations and we knew what was planned! Every time we watch the video from our wedding it brings huge smiles to our faces and really reminds us of all the hard work and precision planning that went into it from your team to make it happen…. so….
Thank you Ines, Marin, Matea and Iva for all you help along the way.
The sunset galleon trip the night before, Marin’s idea 2 years ago, simply breathtaking and really appreciated by all of our guests who called it magical. Zac the Sax was amazing!
Thank you to Barbara for the hair, for her patience with me as I had struggled with the trials but on the day it was perfect! My niece the flower girl felt like a princess, and kept her plait in for the whole next day! And thanks for the last minute hair style for my friend who did our makeup.
The after ceremony cocktails were a real hit, with guests commenting on how tasty they were and appreciated in the heat!
Villa Sheherezade – Well! an absolutely stunning venue that wasn’t in our original plan and all thanks to you Ines, persistant with negotiations following the cancellation of the original Terrace bar. It couldn’t have worked out better! and what a backdrop for our photos.
Thank you Vero for making the photos as relaxing as possible for us, neither Neil or I are that comfortable with poses but she was great fun and kept us laughing. We can’t wait to see the pics!
The logistics on the day… bus to boat to island. Guests commented when they saw the buses they expected a 30min wait to get on but were impressed how quickly and efficiently people were moved from place to place.
Villa Ruza…. our favourite place. wow wow wow… a simply beautiful setting.
The band!! Thank you to the amazing Teatar band! We hadn’t expected our entrance song to be played live and they were incredible, the mood lifted right from the start… I was totally over excited walking to our table (as you will see in the film!). It is my most favourite and most overwhelming part of the day, to see all our guests around us, everyone so happy. I will never forget that moment!
Everyone commented on how fantastic the band were – the dance floor was full before the starters were served!! and that was how it was to continue all night, we could not have hoped for more. And to think we wondered if the dance floor would fill haha! Neil’s little nephew was taken with the lead singer! Please thank the band for letting our guests have their moments too, getting up and singing with the band, the musicians all took it all in their stride and were very accommodating!
A huge thank you to Matea and Iva who were there for the duration both days, always there but always discreet. Our guests complimented them both time and time again, thanks for keeping us all in line!
So once again a truly heartfelt thank you to you all for organising the most amazing 2 days, all of our guests fell in love with Dubrovnik and want to visit Croatia again. The venues were all stunning and our guests are saying it is the best wedding they have ever been to!
We would love to do it all again, we hope you enjoy our video!
All our love
Toni & Neil Whiffin! 😎
