International wedding plannerSCARLETT & EDDIE – CALIFORNIA, USA

Matthew and his team were truly life changing for our big day. He somehow took all of my random ideas and transformed them into the most breathtakingly intimate and romantic day I could have ever envisioned. The network of vendors he has are all so passionate and truly engaged in what they’re doing. He and Ceri traveling all the way to California and staying with us made it feel like we were old friends and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.

International wedding plannerMONICA & ROBBY – LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE

Matt, Bertie and the whole team were wonderful to work with during our wedding. We had an incredibly complex wedding as we live in the US and our wedding was in a remote French village with 100+ guests coming from the States and Australia. Matt kept everything on track throughout the process and was always available for us, despite being a continent away. In the end we, and our guests, had the most stunning weekend and exceeded all of our expectations which an enormous amount of credit is due to Matt and his team at Matthew Oliver Weddings!

International wedding plannerMOTHER OF THE BRIDE – PROVENCE, FRANCE

I can’t tell you how thrilled Graham and I were with what you both did for Emma and Adam’s wedding – you are both so professional but caring and we both felt that you were part of the family.  Do hope that you will stay in touch and if there is anything we can ever do for you then please do not hesitate to ask.

destination wedding plannerLYNN & KRISTOFF – DUBROVNIK, CROATIA

We could not have had better wedding planners than you two, and we really mean it! Your endless patience and kindness towards our “impossible demands” are one of a kind. We know that managing us is like managing the impossible. Yet you are always so understanding and loving, even when we came up with the craziest ideas. We were only able to enjoy our own wedding day without any worries because of your perfect execution and relentless drive for making us happy and satisfied.


Destination wedding planningEMMA & ADAM – PROVENCE, FRANCE

We so loved working with you. It was the most amazing experience, the best day of our lives and we just LOVE you both to bits! Even though we had just met, it was like planning with our best friends. We couldn’t have asked for more. Can’t wait to see you out here soon

Italy Destination Wedding – Ashley & Mike


First, above all else, we would like to thank you both for creating the greatest moment in our lives. Ashley is the luckiest encounter of my life, but you two are second and I really mean that. From you wonderful personalities to your professionalism, to your unparalleled abilities in creating perfect events, we could not have worked with two better people to plan and execute our wedding. Even to this day our friends and family members mention and reminisce about that weekend and “Matthew and Bertie” synonymously. We can only imagine all of the lucky people you’ve worked with since last June, and how happy they must be as well.


I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Matthew and Bertie and the team.  We worked with Bertie as our planner and I can honestly say he went above and beyond to create our absolute dream wedding!  It was the perfect balance of professionalism and working with a great friend. We had a lot of fun throughout the whole process, they have great contacts and suppliers that they work with who turned out to be fantastic and also lovely people.  Overall a fantastic experience and we are very thankful!


Millie and Bertie!! What a team! We can’t thank you enough for making our day so beautiful! It went way beyond our expectations and everyone was blown away! Such a wonderful day which we will certainly never forget! I don’t have enough words to thank you!

Nicky & Alan - Gloucestershire

“Matthew and Millie have done an awesome job as our Wedding Planner! They have been very professional and helpful all along. Both had given us very good guidance on how to plan and prepare for our overseas wedding. They have also given us great recommendations on videography, music, florist, catering, table wares, invitations, decorations, ceremony…. basically on everything! Both of us would have been so lost without their guidance! The wedding went so well and I would say it was even better than what we were hoping for! We have received a lot of compliments from our guests regarding the arrangements, settings, food, music. Our deep appreciation to Matthew and Millie for making it a perfect wedding and a truly memorable once in a life time experience for us!”

Destination Wedding Planner – Mary & Ben

Mother of the Bride - Amalfi, Italy

“Jim Bob and I are so very thankful and even a bit sad to know our wedding journey is complete.  Your great attention to detail, counsel, practical observations and abundant love for our family was just amazing in every way. To say we could not have done this Italian journey without you is almost comical!  We never worried about a thing and knew that your communications with all the vendors and individuals was happening constantly.  THANK YOU!  Our hearts are filled and overflowing with wonderful memories.  Please know you two were so pivotal in helping our daughter’s dreams come true—Ben’s as well.  What a love filled Italian time we had—Can’t wait to relive it all through the videos & photographs.  Can’t wait!”

Claudette & Jonathan - Bristol

“I honestly believe we were meant to find you! Having someone who understood my vision & had attention to detail in the same way as me, carries the same amount of passion for their work and LOVES Julie Andrews, was so comforting to me. You made our day perfect! We couldn’t have done any of it without you! Being able to hand over ‘your baby’ is no easy thing, but we felt 100% that you were able to carry everything & we can’t thank you enough for that.”

Ben Yew Photography


“How do we begin to thank you for helping create the wedding of our dreams? Ever since your first email back to me where, you noted what a special thing a vegan wedding would be, I knew we’d work so wonderfully together. Your creative vision is simply superb – all of the small details and finishing touches were better than I could have hoped for. We also can’t thank you enough for the amazing vendors you connected us to. Thank you also for the amazing discounts we would never have had without you! (There’s no doubt our wedding wouldn’t have been as beautiful without you being a part of it!) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

“Hi Handsome :-). Matthew, thank you so much for your flexibility and patience in bringing our wedding together, I could not have asked for a more calm and understanding planner. Call when you come to Canada!”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Caroline & Tom - North Cadbury Court, Somerset

“Wholeheartedly dedicated would be the understatement of the century when describing Matthew. Matthew was consistently upbeat and accommodating. It was clear from the start that he was just as committed as we were to making sure we had an incredibly special and meaningful wedding. We can’t accurately describe what a gem Matthew is in just a single paragraph. In the most basic sense, Matthew is a phenomenal planner. But on a deeper and more personal level, Matthew helped create unforgettable memories… and is now a lifelong friend.”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Christabel & Loren - Wick Farm, Bath

“Matthew Oliver is not only incredibly talented but also one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He truly cares about his clients – not just their wedding dreams but about their lives in general. He’s got a wealth of knowledge and a great eye for detail and doesn’t give up until everything is done right. Matthew really considered our wishes and planned a fairytale wedding that was a beautiful reflection of our relationship, personalities, traditions, and interests. He’s so much fun, very patient, and compassionate; I just can’t imagine there ever being a better wedding planner (and ally). The people he works with (florists, hair and makeup stylists, photographers, officiants, etc.) are also unbelievably nice and mega talented – they all brought so much light and love with them on our special day. Thanks to him and his team we have happy memories of a magical day that will keep us smiling for years to come. Love you to bits Mr. Matthew Oliver!”

Himesh & Maybo - Trinity Buoy Wharf, London

“Throughout the whole wedding planning process, Matthew was a pleasure to work with; he was very positive, attentive, excellent at replying promptly to our (many) emails, and always happy for a chat or video conversation at short notice. It was great for him to be the main point of contact with the suppliers, which reduced a lot of stress for us! On the wedding day itself, Matthew and his team proved completely indispensable; we simply couldn’t have done it without them. It was a full day: a Hindu ceremony in the morning, Chinese ceremony in the afternoon, and a reception in the evening, with multiple suppliers involved throughout, and we didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics on the day at all – we could just relax and enjoy the day. He and his team made sure everything ran to time, made sure we were well fed(!), and dealt with the few issues that arose with the absolute minimum of fuss. The result was a day we’ll remember forever – we couldn’t recommend them enough.”

Cara & Justin - Ravello, Italy

“Matthew was an invaluable resource as an American couple planning a wedding abroad in Europe. He helped us research our options for the perfect destination, coordinated everything with all our vendors brilliantly, and took care of everything flawlessly on our wedding day so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The entire experience working with Matthew was perfect, and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a dedicated, genuine, and of course, very skilled wedding planner. Thank you again, Matthew!”

“It’s been a great journey working with you for 13 months planning this wedding together. Thank you for making my wedding the most memorable time of my life! Will miss you lots!”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Helen & Dan - Ston Easton, Somerset

“Matthew helped us for an entire year leading up to our wedding. We both work long hours and were concerned about the amount of time we could give to the huge amount of work that goes into creating a special wedding for our friends and family. Matthew was organised and professional and took care of everything for us, but also knew exactly how to involve us in all the decisions. We set a budget and we came in exactly on target. Matthew was contactable at all times, and responded quickly to all our emails. He created an amazing visual spectacle on the day and things went perfectly. He more than earned his fee in terms of the amount of time and effort he had to put in, including numerous meetings, phone-calls, endless emails from us and the venue and suppliers. I would not hesitate to recommend him and as we got nearer the day I was increasingly relieved he was there to help!”

Cristina & Nav - Cairn Manor, Surrey

“Hey Matthew, thank you so much for planning my wedding so perfectly.
You are the best and you have the best team in the world!”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Julia & Geoff - Family Farm, Devon

“Matthew is extremely personable, great to work with, enthusiastic, friendly and 100% approachable! Working with Matthew you feel as if no idea is a bad idea and he is very supportive of frequent bridal changes-of-mind, working with us to ensure that we felt comfortable with the options. Matthew is respectful of budgets and understands the importance of ensuring family members are happy with decisions made. He thinks of details that you would easily overlook and his wedding day styling is faultless. Matthew absolutely comes into his own styling a venue, he is resourceful in ensuring that the final look will be unique, elegant and personal.”

Meg & Jason - Manchester

“Matthew is kind, caring and fun to be around, but with a no-nonsense edge to him that really comes in handy. He’s also very creative with a keen eye for style, which really helped us bring our ideas to life. I couldn’t recommend him enough.”

Matthew Oliver Weddings

Sarah & Stuart - Lusty Glaze, Cornwall

“I am hesitating with writing this, because although it is such a cheesy thing to say, I really couldn’t begin to describe how fantastic Matthew is. I have no doubt that every bride who is lucky enough to have Matthew as their wedding planner feels as though he is their best friend. From day one, I trusted Matthew completely (not just as a wedding planner, but as a person as well) and to have someone so genuine, happy, creative, switched on, stylish, professional and skilled, was a dream come true! Matthew becomes even more important than the Groom… loved equally though 🙂 Matthew even won my husband and dad’s heart and that is saying something!! Thank you for everything, all my love”
