My heart belongs to my home county, but long ago I started a special affair with Italy. It is a county full of contradictions where north and south are often each other’s opposites, but still have much in common: their love for culture and history, for their refined cuisine and their heavenly wines. A wedding in Italy is not just a marriage: it is a total experience. I passionately escort you on a culinary and historic discovery tour through La Bella Italia that will be the starting point of your life-long voyage together. That’s amore!
A country does not need to be big or exotic to be great. In my home country, Belgium, one can travel for weeks on and drop from the one surprise into the other. Choose from one of our many castles amidst the forests, at the waterfront or close to a town, and I can magic your wedding into a fairy tale with eye for every detail. We boast not only an abundance of castles, but also farmhouses, stately homes, villa’s, greenhouses and deconsecrated churches, all to be found on my long list of incredible possibilities. Let yourself be enthralled by Belgium’s beauty!
Paris is always a good idea…and so is France, and what more can I say?
I always had deep feelings for our southern neighbours, for their art, culture and savoir-vivre; for their romantic cities highlighted by stately architecture or for their picturesque villages with their typical petite squares. Close your eyes and drift away. Image yourself in a vineyard or a lavender field where blankets are laid out offering picnic baskets… On opening the basket, you find baguettes, local cheeses and a bottle of wine supplied by the local vintner. THE perfect start of a perfect weekend for the two of you and your guests! La vie est belle!
For many people, Portugal is a lesser known wedding destination, but it is forcing itself ever more in the limelight. It is a country steeped in rich history, with diverse culture and still unspoiled nature with many sand and rock beaches. You’ve guessed it. Here the beach wedding of your dreams can become reality. Instead of starting your wedding or festive weekend with a wine degustation – which is surely also a possibility here – you can let your guests enjoy the delectable and world-famous Port, followed by a Portuguese welcome dinner in one of the many authentic restaurants with in the background the typical, melancholic Fado music. One of the many advantages of Portugal is that temperatures in the southern region can be enjoyably for a long period of time, not to mention the awe-inspiring splendour of the coloured houses.
In this country, it is easy to imagine a wedding ceremony with your feet in the sand at one of the Costas. The Costa del Sol is the most famous, but also the Costa Blanca or the Costa de la Luz could well be what you had in mind. The versatility of the country is endless. Cities breathing history, the rough, green area of Asturias, or Galicia, vast expanses of nature around southern finca’s…
A wedding weekend in sultry and sensuous Andalucía starting with a tapas evening accompanied by world famous Rioja wines and with gitano music in the background… Or an intimate ceremony in gastronomic Catalonia on a late summer’s evening: we’ll gladly assist you in your quest. Something for all tastes in this versatile land with its even in winter agreeable climate. If you dream of an island wedding, Spain is your perfect choice as well: the Baleares or the Canary Islands are far-out wedding locations. Hasta luego!
Although we at Art’Anna lost our hearts to the sun, we just love the mountains that breath peace and tranquillity and where the air is still clean and pure. Winter weddings have gained enormously in popularity over the last few years, but in Belgium and many other countries the chances for snow are few and far in-between. For this reason, we added Austria to our list of “exotic” destinations. Imagine the gloriousness of starting your wedding or festive weekend in a wooden chalet with view over the snowy mountains, a crackling open fire in the background and a succulent Austrian dinner or a cheese fondue for all your guests. A wedding in a remote cosy church or on a location with a breath-taking backdrop of the mountains and pictures in the snow. These are the ingredients that transform your wedding or party into a unique experience for you and your guests. Memories made in the mountains stay in our hearts forever!

Helena has meant so much to us during the planning of our wedding making it very difficult to put this into words on a 'piece of paper'. Throughout the collaboration, it was clear that she is made for her profession and that she practices it with great passion. She also has a very good knowledge of people so she knows exactly what it is you want, even if you can't express it clearly. Everything was taken care of down to the last detail. In Helena's hands, we did not doubt for a moment that everything would be in order. The result was a fairly stress-free marriage. The perfect recipe.

I already had the privilege to work with Helena at some weddings, and each and every time, it was just the picture. She always managed to clear up those stressful moments when suppliers did not deliver what was agreed upon, and the bridal couple never even had the slightest idea that there was a problem. All of them had a carefree dream wedding, and I was so lucky that I could immortalise all this beautiful work in pictures. Highly recommended for your (intimate) wedding in Italy or France!

On a personal level as well, the cogwheel immediately clicked. We are both passionate about our profession, very punctual and easy-going personalities. When it also personally clicks between suppliers, the drive is higher to carry out the following projects. I’m eternally grateful for all the beautiful opportunities I was offered via Helena, chances that undoubtedly contributed to the fact that I can carry out the job of my dreams.
esmeralda & dan
We booked Helena to plan our Italian wedding in the spring of 2019, and I am so happy we made this decision - it made our lives so much easier! Helena made our dream come true (and beyond) and organised a wedding more beautiful than I could ever imagine. We had the perfect location, the perfect menu, the perfect flowers, the best photographers and all that within the budget we agreed upon. If you want to enjoy the journey of getting married and not have to stress about it, make sure to contact Helena - I can tell you it will be worth it.
ann-sophie & jan
Although our wedding was rather small, it excelled with love, warmth & personal touches; all this thanks to Art’ Anna. It is just impossible to achieve this yourself. It was Helena’s professionalism, push, but tranquil at the day itself that made our day unforgettable. Warm & loving, just as we always had wanted it.
cleo & ben
We had always dreamt of a wedding in Italy. Helena and her team made our dream come true, for which we are eternally thankful. We could live through the preparations and the weekend itself without any stress and look back at it in sweet memories. If only it were possible, we would turn the clock back to re-live that magical weekend once more.
