I cannot recommend Vara Wedding and our wedding planner Fieke enough!

Working with Fieke was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Right from the initial email exchange, it was clear that she is an incredibly professional and efficient planner, who truly cares about her clients' needs. Fieke comprehended our vision for our destination wedding locations and suggested several excellent options that met most of our requirements! We also reached out to other wedding planners who recommended some great venues; however those venues didn't fit the aesthetic we were aiming for, which made Fieke and her team truly stand out compared to other wedding planners right from the start!

Since we do not live in Bali and were not planning to visit Bali before the wedding, it was impossible for us to personally visit the venues. Therefore, we asked our friends who were traveling to Bali to meet Fieke and tour the venues with her. We met Fieke over a video call and it felt like we were there with them exploring the locations! Eventually, we fell in love with Jumeirah and decided to choose it as our wedding venue. After finalizing the venue, we began selecting other vendors, and Fieke provided us with excellent recommendations for each one. She only suggested the best, ensuring that our wedding was in the hands of the most competent professionals. Every step of the way, Fieke was organized and always stayed in touch with us. Fieke's expertise was not limited to just the wedding ceremony itself; she went above and beyond by providing us with valuable advice on other wedding-related activities, such as accommodations, hen party, wedding day 2 celebrations boat party, and transportation.

We met Fieke the day before the wedding, at our rehearsal! We first had a technical meeting with most of the vendors, where we reviewed the schedule and addressed any concerns that we had. It was a highly professional meeting, and we were impressed by the attention to detail! During the rehearsal, Fieke guided us through the necessary steps and briefed us on the contingency plan in case of rain. The rehearsal went smoothly, and we felt confident that everything was under control.

On the day of the wedding, Fieke and her exceptional team were with us from 10am until midnight! I, the bride, had a dedicated team member looking after me the entire day, while my partner had someone taking care of him. The team was readily available to address any questions or requests that we had throughout the day, which relieved all the pressure and stress. Having a team of professionals like Fieke and her team on our wedding day was a game-changer. They were there to handle everything and anything that came up, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the day to the fullest. It truly made a significant difference to have a wedding planner team taking care of us on our special day.

We feel that Fieke and Vara Wedding went above and beyond for us and would highly recommend Fieke as a wedding planner!”

Once again, thank you so much! We had the best day ever!
