I’m Luciana- your Puglian wedding planner.
I come from Puglia, I lived for about 20 years in a wonderful Italian Region: Emilia Romagna where I studied and worked. I attended the University School of Interpreter and Translator in Forlì. I worked as Front Office Manager and Guest Relation Manager in prestigious hotels in the Adriatic coast.
I held positions of responsibility until I became sales manager, I took care of the organization of meetings, events and weddings. The passion for foreign languages, a dynamic work in continuous growth, continuous personal training have allowed me to become a hospitality professional.
In 2013 something changed
In 2013 I decided to start a new life: I left the Emilia Romagna region and I came back home, to my Puglia. A new destination to discover, a new challenge for me. I started my own business as a wedding planner under the name of MarryLu and I began to collaborate with masserie-resorts, hotels and luxury villas, starting with great enthusiasm taking care of the organization of weddings, following my perfectionist streak.
Today my wedding planner activity aims to promote the Apulian territory, full of simple realities such as farms, trulli villages, country villas and beaches. I had the privilege of being born in this wonderful land, every day I rediscover authentic and timeles venue, where weddings could enhance their value.
