Testimonials

Ellen & Mike

“Thank you SO much from the bottom of my heart for all the effort and energy you put in to throwing us the most unbelievable and unforgettable wedding. It was truly amazing! Everyone hasn’t stopped raving about it and how wonderful it was, so thank you, thank you, thank you! 

You guys are serious superstars and take wedding planning to the next level.

Thank you for everything”

Rebecca & Joe

“I don’t think I got the chance to thank you both in person for everything you did for us. THANK YOU. 

We honestly had the best day of our lives (of course!) and I can’t believe just how many people said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. The energy and the vibe was helped so much by the amazing decorations. I had SO many compliments on the vintage chairs and all the lights as well. Plus, the cocktails went down a treat – so yum. 

The food was SUPERB, and I got a lot of comments about this as well. I particularly liked the chicken and the fish. Divine. 

You made the whole day so easy for us, and we truly appreciate all your hard work. Do let me know if there’s somewhere we can write a review, as we’d love to back your services to the masses! 

Speak soon!”

Dan & Shreen

“Our wedding day in Sri Lanka was the best of our lives. A big part of that was down to the fantastic job done by Galle Events. They were a model professionalism throughout, while also bringing a personal touch that put us and our guests at total ease. On the day of the wedding our villa looked magical, the food was excellent and the day went off without even a hint of a hitch. Many of our guests live in Singapore and have been to their fair share of tropical weddings, but even they were blown away. “

Izzy & Brett

“I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank Galle Events, and in particular Tommy. I honestly could not have imagined a more beautiful and seamless day.

Tommy and I have been talking about the wedding via whatsapp for about a year, and he really did make our dreams come true! Tommy went above and beyond to deliver every single detail, guiding us through local legal requirements, working with a sometimes difficult venue supplier to drive the best outcome for Brett and I – he managed their costs down, food, beverage issues, and increased quality.

Seeing the Villa transform on the wedding day was nothing short of magical. There were literally no stresses or problems brought to my attention, Tommy just dealt with them. I had every trust in him and he absolutely delivered. He managed all the servers, bar staff, kitchen logistical without a hitch. When we finished dinner and walked back to the party area, I was honestly speechless. He had transformed the whole pool area into the most dreamy dance floor / seating area.  

Brett and I cannot thank Tommy and the team enough. You guys truly created a day we will never forget, our friends and family have said it was the most amazing wedding they had ever seen, followed by a party they will also not forget!

… and then there was the day after party… !!! Wow.

You are such a talented team and we really want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work – the memories you helped create for us will last a life time.”

Kit & Ibere

“Claudia and Jack exceeded our expectations and put on a fabulous party. Claudia’s meticulous attention to detail and Jack’s warm hospitality made our wedding day very special. We were truly left to enjoy ourselves as the day unfolded perfectly. The team were also very well prepared for all weather conditions and we would highly recommend them for any special occasion.”

Mike & Elle

“The wedding was utterly incredible and unforgettable and I can’t thank you enough for all your effort and amazingness! Everyone is still raving about it, saying it’s the wedding of the century and this is all thanks to you guys! You seriously knocked it out of the park, by arranging the most memorable, beautiful, awesome wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

Nicola & Luke

“It is honestly difficult to put in an email what an amazing week and wedding we had. I can’t believe it is over and I am back at my desk in Dubai, it feels like a dream.

Tommy, from both Luke and myself-you are incredible, and I will never be able to thank you enough for bring my vision to life. We have honestly heard nothing but how amazing it was and LOADS of our friends saying it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. You and Eva went above and beyond and never (not once) did I feel stressed or anxious about anything. Truly you have an incredible team and I cannot wait to share the pictures and videos with you. Please thank everyone on your team, absolute rock stars.

Jack- thank you for all your help with the villa, and during the wedding, it truly was what dreams are made of and I only wish I could go back and do it all over again. I don’t feel like I took it all in enough-thank god for videographers.

We will share a bunch of pictures so you have those to share with other potential clients. Please also send across the final invoices so we can get that all sorted for you.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Loads of love,

Kate & Tim

“My husband and I would just love to acknowledge and thank Galle Events for all their hard work with our wedding day.

We are an Australian couple, who married in Weligama, Sri Lanka in February 2020. From the very first email Tommy, our wedding coordinator, was professional, helpful and quick to respond. His visions for weddings are nothing short of incredible and he made the entire day stress free.

We were blown away by what they organised. The sheer customization they can offer with an array of styles to suit everyone’s imaginations with attention to detail that is second to none and, is seen and felt by everyone who attends. Our special day was everything we dreamed it would be thanks to the hard work of Galle Events.

Tommy, felt to us as a friend with our best interests at heart, helping to plan our wedding. He was honest, open, comfortable, accommodating and firm. My husband and I said to each other after the wedding that we had never met anyone who was in a more suited profession than Tommy. He does it so naturally we could not imagine him doing anything else.

We highly recommend Galle Events to anyone planning a celebration in Sri Lanka, they took away all of the stress and hassle, from the day to start talking to them until the very end. We were just left to just enjoy our friends, family but most importantly each other, which is truly priceless.

Thank you for the amazing memories!”

Chris & Kiran

“Dear Tommy, Jack, Eva,Just a note to say a very belated THANK YOU to you and your team for putting together such a terrific wedding event for Kiran and me !!We were very pleased with it all. Everyone had a wonderful time.

IF Villa was transformed into something completely different. Throughout the entire event your staff were great, they were nothing short of professional!

Also, please could you send our thank yous to Jo and her team for the amazing food. We had nothing but 5 star feedback from all of our guests. We will recommend Galle Events and Poonies to all. We look forward to seeing you again soon when we next visit SL!”

Colin & Emma

“We would like to extend our warmest gratitude to the entire Galle Events team for their incredible work that ensured Colin and I had the most perfect wedding.

From their attention to detail and creative suggestions, to their knowledge and understanding of the manner in which local business is carried out – honestly we could not give them a high enough recommendation.

In choosing Sri Lanka as a destination, we wanted to incorporate our wedding celebration with a weeklong holiday with family and friends (of which 135 came from all over the world!!).

The day itself was perfect; the set-up was better than we had imagined, the food absolutely delicious (curry station – waow, the 9 cakes – even more waow) and finally, the level of professionalism, friendliness and care was incredible.

Thank you for everything!”

Lou

“Thank you so much to Galle Events for organizing my two-day 50th birthday festival.   Having over 43 people fly in from around the world, many of whom had never been to Asia before, with ages ranging from 21 to 85, it could have been awfully stressful for me.  You sorted the logistics of accommodation, and transport as well as organizing the most unforgettable weekend for myself and all my guests.  They still cannot stop talking about it.”
