There are many couples that plans their wedding without hiring a Wedding Planner. When I got married myself we did not use a planner and our wedding was just like we wished for! If you have the time and the contacts to plan your own wedding, you will probably learn a lot of event planning during this time and with this knowledge you can also help others!
We would like to share with you 10 reasons why you should hire a Wedding Planner:

Emma was born October 1989 in Oslo, Norway. As any other Norwegian she started her first part time jobs at 12 years old. When Emma was 18 years old she went to Oslo Business School and graduated with a Bachelor in Hotel and Relationship Management. During these 3 years at the university, Emma focused on Event Management to be one of her main subjects of the study.
After graduating Emma moved to South of Spain where she met her Spanish husband Carlos. They married in Gibraltar with an intimate dinner in Estepona. That’s how she learned fluent Spanish!
Emma worked 7 years with Costa Event and her partner Mari. Mari and Emma created more than 40 weddings together during these 7 years, with the last 3 years to be their busiest time.
October 2018 Emma decided to create her own Wedding Planning company, with focus on Luxury Weddings. Emma is known for her eye for details, efficiency and quality. She puts in a lot of effort to create dream weddings for couples getting married in Spain.
Emma is in Spain to stay for a long time and assures that she loves Andalucía for its culture, history and the ability to enjoy fully every day with a good Spanish lunch and the warm weather!
3 weddings have been organized at this beautiful wedding together with Costa Event. The first couple was Monika and Alexander, they made their promises at the Norwegian Seaman Church in Calahonda and later celebrated their big day together with friends and family. See what they say about their wedding:
"Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did for us to get the celebration of the life. Everybody is very impressed and so are we. It was simply perfect."

Sometime later we had Helene and Marius for their May wedding to be celebrated at the same venue. They decided for a romantic ceremony with a Norwegian Celebrant for their wedding. With the stunning voice of Amanda Rosa, Helen walked down the aisle towards the love of her life. The whole evening was laughter, tears and hugs. Here are their own words of the big day:
"The day was absolutely fantastic from start to the end! All the guest had an amazing time and only gave us positive feedback. Many said it was just like the movies and had never experienced such a stunning wedding! "
