We first found Branka and Zeljka by referral from Martini Marchis Hotel. They were travelling to the UK for business and it was extremely helpful to be able to meet them in person to discuss what we wanted from our wedding.
We think that one of the great strengths of Dreamtime is their willingness to engage in a dialogue about the preparation of our wedding. We can be rather strong willed both individually and as a couple and at times had fixed ideas about what we wanted our wedding to be. Dreamtime was able to work with our wishes but was also able to guide us in what could be realistically be achieved. An example being that we wanted 2 large olive trees as part of our ceremony set up. This could not be achieved but an alternative was arranged that was agreeable to all.
Zeljka and Branka dealt with our demands and worries with good humour and promptly. They kept us in the loop and chivvied where necessary and gave us time to make our own decisions.
One of the perils of getting married abroad is that you do not know whether it is going to work until the day of the wedding when all the suppliers converge on a small hotel, on a tiny island off the coast of Split. It is at that point when you find out whether Dreamtime have been worth the fee …
You will be pleased to hear Dear Reader that the arrangements spearheaded by Branka and the team at Martini Marchis went off like clockwork. As Thursday and Friday unfolded, lighting arrived, tables were set up and decorated, band sound checked, registrars arrived, food was prepared, the photographer began his work and so by 5pm 7th September 2018 Penny and Matt had the most amazing wedding for themselves and 30 of their closest friends and family. Although the team at MM will get their own testimonial we would really like to praise Rabbit Rock and Zeljka for insisting upon them as the sound and lighting of MM was truly spectacular and made for an extremely atmospheric evening. Special mention also to Ivana (and her mum) whose flowers, bouquets and table decorations were beautiful.
We do not intend on getting married again but were we to do so or others are thinking of doing similar to us we can recommend Dreamtime to them.
Dreamtime Events was the best thing that happened to our destination wedding. Before making our decision to work with Dreamtime, I interviewed about 4 different wedding planners in Croatia. It was with certainty that I had to choose Zeljka & Branka. Their genuine & authentic characters came through and they turned our vision to reality. It truly was a DREAM. Zeljka & Branka made sure every detail was taken care of and their attention to detail was impeccable. Thank you Dreamtime for taking part in planning our wedding and our honeymoon.

Just wanted to say from the moment we Skyped for the first time I felt completely at ease and weirdly comfortable with planning a wedding in a country I had never been to, and was so far away from. Every step was so easy and Zeljka was so fantastic with my (sometimes picky) requests. The whole day went without a hitch, and was way better than expected. With both of your guidance you were able to help me with things I had not even thought of. Everything from our beautiful wedding singer, florist and unbelievable photographer was just a dream. We are so happy to have been married in Split and through Dreamtime xx Meagan & Anthony, AustraliaMeagan & Anthony
We have written a short testimonial - our words can never sum up our appreciation for you both, but I gave it a try :). From the minute we met Branka and Zeljka/Dreamtime Events, we knew we wanted them as our wedding planners! They were so friendly, personable and passionate that we instantly felt as though we were their friends or family and just knew we were in the best hands possible! We really did feel as though our wedding was as important to them as it were to us. Getting married abroad can be stressful but they take all of the stress away from you, handling all of the liaising with vendors and dealing with all the admin, which is a huge relief! It helps that they literally know everyone from captains of boats to the local Mayor as anything you ask for, they have a way of sorting! It is so nice to be able to say that our wedding day went perfectly and that is all down to Dreamtime Events. We didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day and could just completely switch off and enjoy ourselves. We are so grateful to have met Branka and Zeljka and will always keep a close relationship with them. We couldn’t recommend them enough for anyone looking to get married in Croatia; they are the best team for the job!! XxxLillie & David
Working with Zeljka and Dreamtime events was such a wonderful experience. Living in the US and wanting to celebrate your wedding in another country can feel overwhelming, but immediately Zeljka made us feel totally at ease. From the moment we decided to work together to the moment we left Croatia after our wedding we felt and were totally taken care of. We would absolutely recommend Dreamtime events to anyone looking to plan a wedding in Croatia.Ally & Peter Gallery
We couldn't have asked for a better group of ladies to plan our wedding day! Leaving every detail in their capable hands, we were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding day with no cares in the world! Even though we were on the other side of the world, their planning and communication was amazing !!!Carling & Samuel Gallery
Dear Dreamtime Being Australians, having our wedding in Croatia was only ever wishful thinking. But, with the help of Branka, Irena and Željka at Dreamtime Events Croatia, they made the impossible, possible and our dream wedding a reality. The girls at Dreamtime Events were so professional and always willing to answer any questions we had. Their attention to detail was second to none and their local knowledge was much appreciated. Thank you so much for a wonderful day! Everything went so smoothly and we were so relaxed on the day knowing it was all in control and in your hands. If you are considering a wedding in Croatia we can't recommend Dreamtime Events Croatia highly enough. Love Mariana and PeterMariana & Peter Gallery
Our dream came through, with a destination wedding at Solta with our closest family and friends. Dreamtime Events Croatia made the planning easy and smooth with their local knowledge, great conections and suggestions of vendors. The wedding day was so relaxed as we knew everything were in your thoughtful hands. A perfect match of Brankas dreamy ideas and Zeljkas organizing skills, can make anything happen. Both children and adults felt like royals for a weekend at the castle you found for us. Thanks for making us a part of your Dreamtime family.Lise-Linn Erik Gallery
When we were searching for the perfect wedding planners for our big day, we would have never dreamed to have met women like Branka and Zeljka. They went above and beyond to give us our dream wedding here in Croatia. Their creativity, loyalty and resources can't be beat. They even saved Megan's wedding dress from being stuck in customs. Our wedding day was pure magic thanks to them and their team. They aren't wedding planners, they are our dear friends now!Megan & Jonathan Gallery
We chose Irena as our wedding planner as I was living in Canada speaking only English and my fiance was living in Croatia. We didn’t know where to start with planning a wedding. We were both busy at work and wanted it to be an enjoyable process, rather than taking all of our spare time and being stressful. Irena was fantastic to work with. She was able to take our ideas and turn them into a fabulous day. Her advice on styling and vendors was perfect. Her meticulous planning led to a seamless day where we could totally relax, enjoy each other and our guests, without having to worry about a single thing! She is organized, professional, and above all lovely to work with. We can’t thank her enough for everything she did for us!Nancy & Zan
Have you ever had a message in the morning asking you to organise a whole day’s itinerary in less than 3 hours, oh and did I mention it was for that very day? Well this is exactly the kind of call that we gave to Dreamtime Events Croatia who moved heaven and earth to make sure our needs were seen to. We had just been given a free day so we decided to do something with it and so we reached out to Branka Cubelic and Dreamtime Events Croatia who gladly accepted the challenge. We had always wanted to go to Split and this seemed to be the perfect chance to see something new and to experience the glorious city. There were a few complications, for example we were all the way out in Tucepi and had no means of getting to Split, but Dreamtime Events fixed this and every other problem that we faced. They were so dedicated to making it happen that we were overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation. As if that wasn’t enough, we were fed until we could eat no more. For Samoans the success and failure of any event is the food, and let me tell you, based on that aspect alone, it was a total success! Our concert that night at Stobrec was well attended and we even had a little after party with our new friends. Just when we thought that we could take no more we went into the heart of the city and experienced the night life, Splitian style. The streets were filled with people who were there for the Eurosound festival, and so we mixed and mingled and sung our way around the bars and the streets. Finally returning to our hotel in Tucepi at 3am, we have to say it was one of the best days of the tour. Thank you Dreamtime Events Croatia. You guys are absolutely amazing!Klapa Samoana Facebook
My husband and I are so happy to have had Irena to plan, style and design our destination wedding in Split Croatia. Being a fellow Canadian, I knew she would understand my vision and wishes as I wanted to incorporate a lot of western style wedding details. Without Irena I wouldn’t have had the wedding that I did. She is the most organized, passionate, friendly, honest, caring person. She understood our vision, our theme, and all the small details that were so important to us. She went above and beyond her expected duties to ensure our day was truly magical. Irena is amazing at what she does and we would highly recommend her. Thank you for your hard work and passion in what you do. As an event planner myself, it was a privilege to work with you.Iva & Hrvoje
