I recently had the most wonderful wedding in Porec, Croatia, it was truly magical (and those are not just my words but the guests too!) Being that myself and my husband lived in London and had no real knowledge of the area.. or come to that.. knowledge of organising a wedding, i thought it best to seek out a wedding planner.
We found Istrawiz online and proceeded to email them about what we had in mind. Both Marina (based here) and Samanta (based in Porec) were so very helpful. From explaining how to ‘get married abroad’ officially or just a blessing, to sitting with us and helping us fill our favour bottles the day before! There was no detail not thought of, no moment not captured and no stone unturned in finding everything to create our perfect day!
The guests at the wedding described Samanta as a secret ninja! She was everywhere on the day, slipping seamlessly behind the scenes making sure everything went like clockwork!
Even when the storm pulled in just before our ceremony she didn’t stress. She remarkably moved the wedding indoors with no fuss and without even the guests realising plans had changed.
I couldn’t speak higher of both Marina & Samanta. If you would like the fairytale wedding of your dreams then look no further, you will not be disappointed.

We got married at Villa in Porec ,summer 2013. Istrawiz’ Marina helped us and pointed us in the right direction and therefore I felt confident and excited about getting married abroad. Everyone was so helpful and kind as soon as we mentioned Marinas name. The venue and food was spectacular and we had an unforgettable experience. Very classy indeed.Highly recommended!Lana Bulmer, UK - Bride
