A Celebration of Aegean Bougainvillea
FARAH & OMAR, 1 October 2016
"It was an absolute pleasure working with UCG Luxury Events! Tala really turned our dreams into reality. She really, “gets it”. All our friends were super happy that everything was so organized from the minute they started planning their trip until getting on their flight home. No detail was overlooked."

"I can't find the right words to describe my experience with you. As confused as I was to have a destination wedding because of the difficulties people face, as right of a choice it was to go through with it. I'm very happy that I chose you to be my wedding organizer. There was no obstacle you couldn't handle. The combination between your professionalism and personality is the perfect package. You were always there to answer any question either by a phone call or email and you were always a comforting source. As professional as you were you still managed to make us feel like you were a part of our family. It truly was my dream wedding. Just saying thank you is not gratitude enough for what you have done. We love you and you will always be missed."
NANCY AND AHMAD, 23 AUGUST 2012
"We have always envisioned our wedding night to be the best in our lives, but your support and creativity made this moment exceed any of our expectations...Long distance wedding planning is tricky but with your excellent coordination we were able to get through it without a hitch. You were always there with a comforting email or just a cheerful voice on the other end of a phone call.
After our first meeting in Istanbul we knew we had made the right decision back then and even more so now.
The whole wedding was simply perfect and reflected so much our character and identity.
We would like to thank you and your team for the hard work and attention to detail. None of it would have been possible without you. We love you and can't thank you enough for everything!"

"For what can be one of the most stressful days of your life, Tala and the team at UCG Luxury Events could simply not have done a better job of making it the most memorable and stress free days!
As we live in the UK it was always going to be complicated selecting venues, choosing caterers and service providers, and managing all the details while not in the country. However, from our very first meeting, Tala's calm and collected approach to planning made us feel at ease. She was always full of ideas but never pushed any on to us and struck the perfect balance of providing suggestions but never losing sight of what we ourselves wanted from our wedding. In the end this combination resulted in events which were more beautiful and seamlessly planned than we could have ever imagined!
Tala has an unbelievable sense of work ethic and an eye for aesthetics. From the flower arrangements, choice of photographers to the placement and style of menus and transport for guests across various venues - every element was absolutely perfect.
We had guests from the US, UK, Canada, Pakistan and more - and even a year after, we still have people telling us that it was the best wedding they had been to and we couldn't agree more! Having UCG help with the planning meant that we could enjoy our wedding for what it was meant to be - a celebration without any hassle or stress.
Can't say enough to recommend how great Tala and UCG's team is. Just go with them and know you will be choosing THE best wedding planner possible.
THANK YOU TALA!!!! "
A Baroque Extravaganza in Sicily
ANLAM & KARIM, 2 July 2016
"Both Tala and Paola have a strong and pragmatic approach to wedding planning and have the rare ability to navigate seamlessly through the important details. They are talented synthesisers, taking input from multiple sources, and always coming up with solutions aligned to what we had envisioned for our wedding in Sicily, Italy. They are creative, responsible, and eager to deliver on the big day. If you have a chance to take them on as your organisers to your wedding, do so."
An Elegant Roman Affair
WILL & ANGEL, 15 september 2017
"My fiancé and I are based in London and we wanted to have our wedding in Rome. I was looking for a London-based planner and found out about Tala from a friend. In the initial meeting, I could see myself working with Tala, due to her attention to detail and depth of experience in destination weddings. My fiancé and I can be quite controlling and told Tala this but she was more than happy to take us on. I interviewed 5 other people and Tala really stood out so we hired her in January 2017 for our wedding in September 2017.
Our celebrations had 4 parts, a registry event in London and three events in Rome; Tala managed them all. Throughout the eight months we worked with each other, she always made herself available for last minute calls or meetings to ensure any questions we had were answered.
Tala gave us many ideas about how to make our day more special and how to ensure our guests had a great time. There were two completely different cultures being celebrated on our wedding day and Tala helped us to seamlessly and beautifully bring the two together. Our guests had very high expectations but they all told us everything was so beautiful, on time and well organised, and this really reflects Tala's hard work.
One of the best qualities of Tala and her team was their effort in understanding us as a couple and what we wanted; they really delivered on the fun English/Persian weekend we wanted. The highest praise we can give Tala is the fact that we both relaxed and had the most fun in our life during the wedding because we trusted Tala's capabilities to take care of anything. Thank you Tala and the UCG team for all your hard work in every stage of our wedding planning."
