THE GOAL is very simple.We're here to help you FALL IN LOVE with your WEDDING PLANNING
Stationed in Vienna, Austria, we're in a prime location to swiftly access any of our top-rated wedding destinations. Whether by road or air, your dream venue is just a few hours away from us!
We travel where the beauty is. We plan, design and coordinate international, multi-cultural events anywhere in Europe. Being based at one of the most important hubs in Europe - Vienna - allows us to create beautiful events not only in Austria, but to easily travel to any amazing European destination. Some of our favorites are of course Italy, France, Greece and Spain.
We speak English, German, Italian, Romanian and a bit of Spanish.
When other languages come into play during the planning or on-site event coordination, we have the right connections to ensure smooth communication. The language of the event significantly influences how we assemble our teams for each occasion.
On average, we work with 6-10 clients annually, the precise number depending on the intricacy of each project. Our "Quality First" mantra resonates in the number of weddings we undertake each year. We are drawn to the magnificent, the graceful, and the deeply emotive. Excellent aesthetics, robust ethics, and meticulous attention to detail are some of the defining aspects of our work, vision, and brand. We remain committed to these principles. Accordingly, we also take the liberty of selecting projects based on compatibility, rapport, and budget.
Since founding High Emotion Weddings in 2014, we've known that destination weddings and generally, international events with a 'wow' effect, are our true calling.
I'm afraid we don't offer partial planning services. Our team prides itself on providing comprehensive planning to ensure every aspect of your event is expertly handled. This complete involvement allows us to maintain the high quality and attention to detail that defines our brand.
Our primary focus is on comprehensive event planning, which allows us to maintain the high standards and attention to detail that our brand is known for. Therefore, we do not offer day-of coordination as a standalone service.
Absolutely! As part of our comprehensive planning, design, and coordination service, we advise you on the type of ceremony that aligns best with your chosen destination (or vice versa). We coordinate with local authorities regarding the necessary documents and handle the submission of paperwork on your behalf. This ensures that you don't have to plan extra trips before your wedding.
Absolutely, we can work with vendors you've already identified, though we strongly recommend that no contracts are signed with them before engaging with us. This preference is based on several key insights from our past experiences:
Firstly, we would like to review their portfolio and potentially have a conversation with them (if we aren't already familiar with their work) to ensure the quality of their work and their ethics align with your vision and our high standards.
Secondly, we might be able to suggest alternative options that could better fit your needs. We would like to present these options to you and assist in making a comparative analysis before your final decision is made.
Lastly, and rather surprisingly, a number of vendors in the wedding industry either don't have contracts or are unaware of what a contract should entail. Thus, we always make sure to check contracts, clarify any unclear terms, and ask for amendments as needed before anything is signed. Addressing unclear or missing clauses is easier before commitments are made - attempting to rectify them at a later stage could lead to significant work and potentially unpleasant situations for you.
Of course! One of the services we're thrilled to provide is assisting you in selecting the ideal country or region for your wedding. We'll consider factors such as your personal preferences, the desired ambiance, local legal requirements, budget, and travel logistics. We'll guide you through the options and share our expert insights to help you make a decision that perfectly suits your dream wedding vision.
Absolutely, we'd be delighted to help. Initially, we can share with you the myriad benefits of hosting a destination wedding or elopement in Europe. We can also connect you with some of our previous clients who can share their experiences and shed light on the pros and potentially the cons - though, we can hardly imagine any downsides!
A great way to immerse yourself in the idea of a European wedding experience is by exploring potential venues, comparing options and costs, and imagining yourselves saying 'I do' in the unique ambiance each location offers. This is precisely why we offer Destination Consulting as a standalone service. You can take advantage of our custom consulting service without having to commit to the full planning process right away. This allows you to make an informed decision that best suits your desires.
Absolutely! We thrive on crafting the full spectrum of your celebration. It brings us immense joy to advise on potential activities preceding and following the wedding, ensuring a sublime experience for both you and your guests at your chosen destination. Be it a 2, 3, 4+ days affair, each day will possess its unique charm while seamlessly blending into a cohesive wedding weekend or week. We're all about painting the bigger picture for your multi-day celebration.
