    We booked Maraha to help us plan our wedding in England where we now live . We got married in ancient Saxon church , it was stunning ! Parts of the original building date back to early 12th century . Our photographer was very talented but just starting up his business so he did all our wedding photos and attended for the entire day for £200 plus travel expenses !! And our photos looked amazing ! We had a lovely 3 course meal for around 75 people . We had a large reception at a local venue that was quaint but charming about 250 attended in the evening . The reception featured ballon displays arrange in beautiful arches and displays as well as an exploding balloon that went off at the end of the first dance . We also had a sumptuous 3 tier vanilla sponge cake with vivid blue hydrangeas trailing down and around it . Was a lovely day and Marsha was there to oversee it all and make sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently / would recommend her services to anyone enquiring .

    Puneet is an excellent wedding planner! If you need a planner to help with all details of your wedding, you have found her!

    Puneet helped my husband and I plan a Punjabi destination wedding. She took the time to listen to all of our needs and wants, and was able to plan a wedding with all the details we requested. We were very particular with everything, and she did not fail to deliver. She met with us multiple times to go over every detail to ensure our wedding was exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend her to any couple planning a destination wedding. She is not only friendly, but truly shows that she cares. Thank you Puneet! We appreciate all your efforts.

    Destination wedding specialists

    I am so glad I used Marsha Steeves Destination Wedding for my Wedding in Mexico. With Marsha's knowledge of the resorts and different areas we were able to make an informed decision about which resort would be our best choice for the wedding. Marsha was easy to work with and I felt at ease knowing I had someone from Vancouver that I could call if I had any issues. Marsha got all of our guests booked right away and was able to help out with any needs my guests had. I had multiple guests coming from different provinces and Marsha was able to get them booked as well with no problems. Harumi is very sweet and was efficient at organizing all the wedding details for us. Harumi is very knowledgeable about the resorts and is full of good suggestions for the wedding. The best decision I made about my wedding was bringing Harumi down with me to Mexico. She made sure our wedding vision came true and was on top of everything the whole week. A big thanks to Marsha and Harumi for ensuring our wedding dreams came true!

    Wonderful Team made our dream day a reality

    Marsha and Harumi did everything possible to ensure our wedding was all we had dreamed of! Harumi took a lot of time and care to help plan every detail with me and go over all my ideas I wanted for the wedding. Marsha is an amazing person with the kindest heart. She flew with us to Cabo and made sure our wedding was nothing short of a fairytale - even getting a huge trampoline removed for us from the site of the wedding by the hotel (it took 30 people to carry it away). Everything they did was over and above our expectations!

    I've arranged many holidays on my own but when it came to planning our getaway wedding there were just too many concerns and questions. I contacted Marsha at Destination Weddings and after our first meeting I knew we were in good hands. It was not only a perfect wedding but absolutely the best trip we've ever been on.

    I know from our long association that Marsha Steeves is a passionate, super devoted lifelong master of the travel industry. She keeps as personally involved as possible with all her clients with active itineraries and doesn't rest until she knows that everything is perfect. She takes tremendous satisfaction and pride hearing appreciation and praise feedback from her travelers after their trips. I can see it takes a great deal of diligence and dealing with the unexpected to keep everything running well and as planned.

    Recently, I researched and planned a stay at a Club Med, for another family and mine, and then called upon Ms Steeves to place the booking. She took it on herself to dig around and negotiated an upgrade to the new deluxe waterfront rooms, at almost no extra charge, and what a difference that made to making our stay so great. The other family was unable to travel due to sickness and she helped get the full refund no problem.

    We were once stranded abroad on a trip with our return tickets on Pan Am the week the company went belly up. A few phone calls back home to Marsha [on her personal 24/7 cell phone], and the alternate arrangements quickly fell into place to get home. These are the types of things a good travel agent can do that makes a real difference.

    I have made multiple bookings over the past few decades with her agency and never a problem. I would strongly recommend and I will continue to use Ms. Steeves services for my travel and vacations. Disclaimer: Please note that specific wedding arrangements services has not been one of their services I have had occasion to use.

    Thanks Marsha!

    We came across Marsha back in December 2020 after an extensive online search for destination wedding planners. All I can say is - I am so glad we found Marsha.

    Marsha and her team have been nothing short of amazing, from dealing with our many (many) questions, to calming our fears and worries, to getting us hyped up for the big event! She was always only a WhatsApp, email or call away. We were dealing with Marsha from the U.K so sadly we were never able to meet in person, but we found her exceptionally kind and knowledgeable over the many telephone and email communications we had. My fiancé is from the U.K, I'm from Canada and my extended family live in Ireland - Marsha organized the entire week for our guests all around the world, making it seem like a breeze!

    Sadly we made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding due to covid affecting travel for many of our guests in different countries - Marsha was extremely patient and understanding with us, and for that - we're so grateful.

    We wouldn't hesitate recommending Marsha and her team, and look forward to using Marsha again in the future.

    Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings's reply:

    Thank you Sophie for your kind words. Yes we never did meet but it was very apparent to me that you and George are a wonderful couple. The pleasure was truly mine! I hope to assist again when things get better. Best Wishes to you both!

    Marsha and her team especially Harumi went over and above. We took Harumi with us to our destination and it was the best thing we could of done. She made sure everything went better than perfect. There were a few hiccups along the way but at the end everything worked out because of Marsha and her team.

    My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Marsha and her team. Her attention to detail was impeccable and her hard work at the destination paid off in spades. Along with the on-site wedding planner, Marsha ensured everything went according to plan and I know my son, daughter in law and all the guests were treated to an awesome occasion. Thank you so much Marsha and your team, from a very grateful (new) Father in Law.

Marsha Steeves
Marsha Steeves
Owner & President, CTC, WPICC, DWC

I attribute my success to "Passion". My passion has enabled me to stay dedicated and committed to a most fulfilling and rewarding career of over 35 years consulting the traveling public. I have had the good fortune of traveling to over 43 countries and truly believe that "Travel is a university without walls."

As Saint Augustine once said "The World is a book and those that do not travel read only one page."

Travel provides an enlightenment that gives to a much broader perception and ignites positive change. It sometimes can be leaving our comfort zones we have become so accustomed to. I can honestly say "Travel" has left a huge imprint on my life and left me with many cherished memories and it is the very reason I could only wish others the opportunity to experience the same.

My travel credentials I hold with Nationwide Travel College, ACTA and CITC. Wedding Planning with WPICC & DWC. I find great satisfaction in using my skills of qualifying my clients and matching them to that perfect destination experience. Whether it's a destination wedding or a honeymoon, I endeavor to always provide the highest level of service and expertise.
