Let me tell you about my story and experience

Who is Ilaria Manaresi?

I was born and raised in Florence and I am an enthusiastic explorer of Tuscany: I spent my whole life roaming around and seeking for the hidden pearls and Tuscany niche locations for a wedding within the region. It is safe to say that Tuscany has not many secret spots left for me!

I hold a master degree in Interior Design. I managed to combine my passion for Design with my experience in organizing events, especially weddings, and make it into my profession.

I keep on studying original mix and match of colors, textures, shapes and flavors, to create unique atmospheres and settings. I keep myself up-to-date for new trends: visiting shows, traveling, reading magazines and just getting involved!

Wedding planner and designer experience

Thanks to my vast experience in planning and organizing events and weddings, starting as Assistant to then becoming a Specialist in the luxury events niche, I got the chance to collaborate and connect with wedding venues, photographers, vendors, all around Tuscany: Florence and its surroundings, Val d’Orcia, Siena, Chianti area, Lucca, San Galgano,etc.
I have progressively grown my network while discovering Tuscany niche locations for a wedding, to offer unique combinations to grooms and brides to-be for their once-in-a-lifetime moment.

🚀In 2012 I decided to spread my wings and pursue my own project that has been my job for the past 10 years and counting and… here I am today as Ilaria Manaresi wedding planner and designer, mainly specialized in destination weddings.
