That is what Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said. The creative, passionate and professional wedding planner Doris Wallner offers the customised planning and production of dream weddings and special events. She specialises in the creation and coordination of exclusive, romantic, and exceptional weddings in Austria’s beautiful Salzburg-Pinzgau region.
If you are just engaged, you are probably completely overwhelmed. That is understandable, but it is always good to start planning early – and to look for professional support. Whether you want a modern wedding in a loft, a romantic wedding staged in a castle, an outdoor wedding, a mountain wedding or a lakeside setting for your special day, this Austrian expert wedding planner will realise all your creative ideas and dreams.
“The advantages of hiring a wedding planner – for either the entire planning and production process, or for parts of the wedding – are numerous. I support clients to fully prepare their wedding so that they can look forward and enjoy the beauty of the moment while I take care of all details and vendors. A wedding planner saves stress, nerves and therefore a lot of time and money,” describes Doris Wallner.

Charming and carefree
“Knowledge, compassion, unique know-how and the love and sensitivity for my ‘profession’ characterise my work philosophy and the services I provide for wedding couples or corporate clients. I try to make the impossible thing possible. Whether I operate with a large or small budget, and whether I’m planning a traditional or modern event, to me the chemistry and emotions of a celebration are the most important part,” describes the business professional.
More than 23 years ago, Doris Wallner planned her first wedding and soon decided that she was going to make her hobby into a full-time business. Today she serves as the director of Austria’s wedding planner society. “To me, what could be better than to see couples’ bright eyes which radiate love, happiness, full satisfaction and gratitude – in addition to some lucky little tears?

Nearby cities and great transport links make it so easy to celebrate in Austria.
