Here are a few comments about Austria Direct from some of our many satisfied clients:

Linda & Conrad Chun, England

February 2017

If getting married in Austria appears to be an exciting yet daunting prospect, then there is no need to be concerned. Our big day was arranged through Austria Direct at relatively short notice, Susanne Dangl, (Susi) did an outstanding job of organising everything down to the very last detail, all we had to do was attend! thus helping to make our wedding the wonderful occasion that it was amongst the stunning scenery of the Tirol. Thank you.


Kerry & Alan Cookson, England

Just over 5 weeks since our wedding day in Mayrhofen and we are trying to encapsulate the efforts and skill of Susi, your wedding planner for that resort. This woman is absolutely incredible! She was a pleasure to talk to via Skype and e-mail in advance of the wedding. Nothing was too difficult and she had a solution for everything. Her levels of organisation were so apparent, and she was able to deal with our e-mails whilst handling several other weddings at the same time. We met Susi 6 months ahead of the wedding and this was a great opportunity to get to know each other, and some reassurance for us, as it is tough planning a wedding in a different country. When we next met a few days before the wedding, she was so attentive, friendly, fun and professional. On the day itself, Susi DID NOT STOP. She was working so hard from the moment she arrived to the moment she left us. She remained very discreet, but also made herself known to key people, and everyone commented on how completely lovely and hardworking she was! We could not have had such a perfect wedding day without Susanne Dangl being behind it all. A HUGE thank you – and danke schon to you Susi – you are a fantastic woman, and we hope we get to see you again in the future – maybe for a day on the Kitzbühel slopes.

Thank you so much for putting us in touch with Susi (Susanne Dangl) in connection with our wedding (in Kaprun). Susi was fantastic! I can’t praise her enough. She was lovely to work with and organised everything for us so our day was perfect. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to plan an Austrian wedding. Many thanks!

What a magical day! It was lovely.Thank you so much. Wow - even the red carpet!!! And a 'proper' wedding dress + welly boots !!


Sarah and Keith, Edinburgh

July 2013

Rössl Alm was the most amazing venue for our wedding, it is stunning both inside and out, and we just loved the fact that everything encompasses the Haberl family’s love of real wood, creating exactly the natural alpine mountain feel we wanted. Maria Haberl was wonderful to work with, we enjoyed all of the planning, and the day itself couldn't have gone better - our guests loved every minute! Thank you so very much for your assistance, especially with the legal paperwork, where your knowledge and connections were invaluable.


Tamsin and Mark Williams, Datchet, Berks

January 2013

Getting married in Kitzbuehel was the best idea we ever had! We met Susi in September and both immediately felt confident leaving our wedding in her hands. She came up with so many wonderful ideas for our day and knew all the best places to recommend. Susi, and John at Austria Direct, helped us with all the paperwork so organising our wedding abroad was easy! Our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and the photographer, Martin, captured the day perfectly. Thank you Susi and all your team for making our wedding day so perfect!


Jim and Maire O'Connell, Ireland

October 2011

Thank you for all your help with our recent wedding in Salzburg. Your initial information pack and letters proved invaluable to us. The very useful tips, advice and insight helped to point us in the right direction at all times. Our day ran very smoothly, was thoroughly memorable and enjoyable. Yours and Ingrid's professionalism were remarked upon by several guests and we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others. We had blue skies and sunshine every day in Salzburg and could not have hoped for better circumstances for our wedding. With great appreciation, Tschuss!!


Rich & Jodie Johnson, Australia

October 2011

Thank you again Ingrid,for helping organise our special day in Filzmoos.Everything went perfectly to plan and all the guests loved every moment. Our thanks to the Unterhofalm for their hard work and to the guys "Jaga-Baum" who made Jodie's day with their rendition of "Candy" - they were as great as advertised, and even had most of the younger brothers dancing - quite a feat! It was a day we will always remember !


Peter and Daphne Murrer, Market Harborough

June 2011

We would like to thank you for all the work and advice you administered during the arranging of our wedding in Mayrhofen. Everything went as planned, and the whole day was just fantastic. The flowers, the horse and carriage, the photographer, the cake - everything was perfect. Elisabeth and her staff at Alpendomizil Neuhaus were just fantastic and made us feel like royalty on the day. Burgi Huber conducted the whole ceremony in english and told two wonderful stories of love which was a lovely thought. She presented us with an engraved crystal vase, and a letter from the Burgermeister of Mayrhofen - a wonderful unexpected surprise. We could not have imagined a more perfect time. It was truly a perfect wedding day we shall never forget. Thanks to all in Mayrhofen - Burgi Huber,Elisabeth and staff, Hrushka Photography, the florists, the carriage driver and your local supervisor Carole Prantner, without whom the day could not have happened. Peter and "Lady" Daphne.


Keith & Jan Selmes, Chatham,Kent

June 2011

Everything (in Zell-am-See) was wonderful and exceeded our expectations! Rudi and his team were so helpful and friendly. They made many extra little touches that just added to the day The weather was a bit overcast, but after the "ash cloud" had threatened the whole event, it was the least of our worries! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved the hotel. Thank you so much for everything you have done to make Hannah and Matt's wedding so special.


Damien & Emma Nolan, Southampton

September 2010

The dust has finally settled and we have had time to draw breath, and just wanted to say thank you for all your help over the last 15 months. We finally made it down the aisle in St.Wolfgang ! We had a wonderful, wonderful time. Thanks again.


Corinne and Steve Woods, Nutley, East Sussex

July 2010

Thank you for steering us in the direction of Filzmoos for our wedding - an amazing location - and for putting us in touch with Ingrid Eibl.She was absolutely wonderful - nothing seemed too much or to silly to ask her.She made the planning process really enjoyable,and it was thanks to her that every detail on the day was perfect ! We can't praise her enough, and if any future clients require a 'first hand' reference for Ingrid's wedding planning services,or for the Unterhofalm as a venue,we are more than happy to oblige.


Andrea and Stephen Sanderson, Peterborough

June 2010

Our wedding day in SEEFELD was absolutely perfect and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Jan(interpreter) and Christine (Registrar) did a fantastic job and made the civil ceremony very personal. Jan is a lovely lady. The carriages worked out very well also and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip after the Blessing at the Seekirchl. Alexander (organist) was great, and the lady who looks after the Seekirchl, rang the bells as we approached.

The whole day was magical and a very large part of that was down to yourself, so please accept our sincere thanks


Rebecca and Simon Austin, Suffolk

April 2010

We would like to say a huge thank you for everything you did in organizing our wedding in Mayrhofen. We had the most amazing day, everything went perfectly, and we were treated so well by everyone, especially Burgi(Registrar), Elisabeth and her staff at the Neuhaus.

Bride, bridesmaids and brides parents had a lovely horse-drawn carriage ride through the town to the Town Hall where Burgi performed a very touching wedding ceremony including a couple of lovely readings. In the evening we were treated to the most amazing meal. We think it will go down in most guests memories as one of the best meals ever had. We had our own room in which the tables had been decorated beautifully for us with candles and flowers.

We could not have hoped or asked for more. It  was truly the perfect wedding day, which was made possible by yourselves.

The whole week, the hotel was exceptional, the rooms were wonderful, the food was delicious, and Elisabeth and her staff were so friendly and helpful not only to us, but to our friends and family too.


Sally and Steve Toulouse, Berkshire

March 2010

We were thrilled with our wedding in Kitzbuhel. We could not have done it without Susi's help, and her suggestions were spot on,from the venues she selected, to the sleigh rides and the releasing of the balloons. Susi met us the day before the wedding and really helped calm our nerves by taking us to the venues and sorting everything out, and making sure all was well. We felt that everything was taken care of, and superbly organised so that we didn't have to be concerned about a single thing.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Susi, as we think she did a fantastic job with our wedding, and we think Kitzbuhel is a great place to get married. The registrar there is a wonderful lady, who completely put us at ease and was, as one guest put it, "sunshine in human form ".

Many thanks for your help too,as the initial paperwork takes some organising,but you made it very clear and easy to follow.

Jane & Jason Girdler, Aldershot

October 2009

Thank you so much for arranging everything and spending time with us discussing our wedding at Hotel Heitzmann,Zell-am-See.You are so right when you say there is nothing in the world to worry or even think about with Anita about!It was truly the most fantastic day,truly amazing.We are so glad we went to Austria and Anita and Rudi are the perfect hosts. We were so lucky with the weather -sunny and warm with snow on the mountains -for the pictures,perfect!We even went up in the cable cars the next day and had a snowball fight,which seemed bizarre as we were all in T-shirts - but great fun!

Thank you John,we really did have a fairytale wedding.


Louise and Rob McGowan

Salford - August 2007

Hi John. Just wanted to email you to say THANK YOU for all your hard work and help with organising our wedding in Gmunden. We had the most amazing time - the wedding itself but also the stay in the Marienbrucke was such a great experience. The family of the hotel treated us like we were family - especially Sylvia who was our lifeline as her English was excellent! Our wedding was the best day of our lives and although the weather wasn't good on the boat it didn't matter because the day was so magical. All of our guests were overwhelmed with the beauty of Gmunden and Austria itself - many people had never been to Austria before and everyone said they wanted to return and explore some more. Once again thank you for everything - we appreciate all that you did and for > introducing us to Gmunden in the first place.


Christopher & Samantha Carey

WestSussex - July 2007

Thank you so much for making our wedding in Salzburg more than we could have hoped it would be.Everything,from the wonderful staff at the Hotel Wolf-Dietrich to the ceremony at the Mirabell,and our dinner at Stiftskeller St Peter went off to perfection.Even the weather was perfect! Thank you also to Gunda Bleckmann for the very kind present from Salzburg Tourismus.We cannot express our gratitude enough for your help,understanding and hard work.


Georg and Sarah Deeke

Oxford - April 2007

Everything was perfect in Austria. The wedding in Zell-am-See and the blessing in Salzburg was very special and most memorable.All guests had a great time and most wished they could have stayed indefinately. Anita,Rudi and their team really looked after us; they are all marvellous and it was a pleasure being their guests. We were touched by Gunda and Suzanne for being our witnesses and for the lovely present they gave us from Salzburg. Rev.Tom Preston gave a beautiful blessing. We had the best wedding and blessing we could have wished for. Thank you for all you have done and your assistance with the documentation.


Andrea Price and Ellis Garry

Failsworth, Manchester - August 2006

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you so much for all the help you have given us with planning our wedding in Zell-am-See. I speak not just for myself, but I know that Ellis, my parents, and Ellis' parents all share my view - we could not have asked for a more personal, or helpful service from anyone else. It has been second to none, and exceedingly stress and worry free.

We want to thank you for the wonderful wedding you organised; we cannot put into words how perfect it was. The wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. When we saw the building and the gardens they just amazed us, but when we walked into the room, I can honestly say the splendour took our breath away!! So Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


Julie and Dan Bridgland

Doreen Onslow (Bride’s mother)

Billericay, Essex – September 2003

I should like to take the opportunity of thanking you for everything you have done for us since we first approached you about the wedding. Your helpful advice, suggestions, alternative options and for making of all arrangements, it could never have been done without your help. The day was perfect, everything that we hoped it would be. Everyone without exception called it a ‘fairy tale’ wedding. Those words sum it up; it was just a wonderful day. Gabi had arranged everything as planned and the Waldhotel Marienbrücke did everything to make our stay comfortable. I would not hesitate in recommending the package to any other couples who may be making plans to marry in Austria. Your help and advice exceeded anything we expected. Nikki and Billy’s wedding would never have been such a success and now of course, ‘Austria Direct’ will always be remembered as part of the wedding – a day we’ll always remember.


Cordelia and Tom Barnes

Coventry, West Midlands – September 2003

Gunda Bleckmann, Salzburg City Tourist Office

Salzburg, Austria – February 2002

The wedding took place and everything went fine – except the weather – it is raining and much too warm and no romantic snow – but the couple and the party were very nice and in good mood – the bride looked wonderful. The photographer made beautiful pictures at the Sacher and I brought them some souvenirs – a book on Salzburg, Salzburg watches and a CD.


Tony Bushell (Bride’s Father)

Leighton Buzzard, Beds – February 2001

Everything went right on plan. Herr Gross was charm personified; organist well rehearsed; Klosterbräu on top form; Ann Häfele very helpful – and weather just fine. Just wish you had been there to enjoy it with us.


Sue and John Bush

Bingley, West Yorks – February 1999
