Giovana Duailibe, executive director of Belief, says: “We were blown away this edition, yet again, by the quantity and quality of the submissions. We are proud to have such talented number of wedding planners as a part of Belief. This makes the wedding industry even greater, for professionals and couples worldwide."

Sandra Santoro – Special Photo: at this award-winning photo, the couple enjoys the beautiful view from Palazzo Vecchio, in Firenze.


Sandra Santoro – Wedding Concept: this was a typical italian wedding. The couple always loved Tuscany and decided to get married there, on a olive grove, surrounded by beautiful colours, shades and hues. The decor with light colors was chosen to enhance this gorgeous landscape.



Pilu Delgado – Wedding Concept: the wedding was all inspired in the modern Snow White, with marsala details on the decor.

Gudalupe Alvarez – Wedding Concept: the couple wanted a very relaxing atmosphere, where the guests could feel like they were in a magical and romantic garden.


Rebeca Magaña – Wedding Concept: this wedding, on Riviera Nayarit, was a truly celebration for a long-lasting love – the couple has been together for 20 years.
