Where do I even begin!! Mie has been an exceptional wedding planner from the very start. She was very professional, detailed and thorough with each step of the way, and managed to fulfill all of our requests for our big day. She made it so easy to do exactly what we wanted, and made some wonderful suggestions that we wouldn't have even thought of. Her passion and consideration was truly remarkable, and the team she hired to help us with photos and makeup was brilliant. Everyone went the extra mile to make sure our day was a success, and I feel like we were blessed to have found BEyond Weddings & Events to help us elope.

Mie is the best wedding coordinator ever! She went above and beyond her role and I will be forever grateful for all her efforts in pulling off my wedding. I highly recommend Mie to any couple looking to do a destination wedding in Japan.
She is pleasant and professional, because of her I truly enjoyed my wedding day.

We would like to thank Mie san for being so meticulous & helpful throughout the entire process! The Xmas greeting card was such a pleasant surprise :) The vow renewal exceeded our expectations and each detail of how we met, as well as our journey as husband & wife really touched our hearts. The photo shoot sessions in Miyama and Gion were special and memorable in their own ways. Takeru san and Yukiya san captured such beautiful and natural shots of us and the stunning April backdrop of Kyoto. Simply gorgeous! We cannot thank you both enough! A big thank you to Emily san & Chihiro san for the superstar transformation 💄 I loved every little detail of the hair & makeup (the eyelashes, the navy ribbon bow & ponytail). Both of you are super! 最高だった！
Thank you so much Mie & team ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 10/10! 有難うございました
HELEN & NATHEN
My fiancé and I were blessed to have Mie plan our special day in Sapporo Japan. From our first communication she exuded professionalism, kindness and enthusiasm for our plans and I took great joy in our ongoing communications leading up to the day. Mie is absolutely kind and shows excitement about bringing the best day possible for us and we cannot be more grateful to her. We would also like to acknowledge the team she selected to help on the day, Haruka, Mayumi and Yoshi who we shall truly never forget (Thank you for keeping us warm Kitty-Chan!). When ours friends, family and colleagues ask about our wedding we will always tell them about the beautiful scenery, and romance, but will always emphasise that Mie and her team made it possible and a success. I truly recommend Beyond Weddings to anyone who wishes to get married in Japan. We will continue to follow your work and wish you the best for your happiness and success. Helen and Nathan.

KYOTO by the sea
Mie is a gifted wedding coordinator with an eye for detail and a knack for accommodation. She remembered little facts about us that we possibly did not even remember telling her and incorporated these details into our wedding to make it extremely unique and special. She was also very keen on making us relaxed and comfortable for the entire trip. She was always very attentive from the beginning of this experience down to the final moment. We will always think of her fondly and cherish the time we spent with her. She made our special day one of the best days of our lives and for that, we are eternally grateful.
From beginning to end, BEyond Weddings & Events was a joy to work with and experience.
YURI & DONNIE
Mie san is an excellent communicator and an amazing wedding coordinator. She was not only professional and courteous (even granting us both Japanese and English in all of our correspondences), she was genuine and sincere as a person. In a country where weddings are a business, she was truly a blessing to us and helped keep our wedding feeling much more like a celebration of love. We would recommend her, not just on a professional level, but on a personal level.
We couldn’t have asked for better! Thank you Mie-san!
PHILLIPA & SHUNYA
We had an amazing wedding in Nagoya thanks to Mie Watanabe’s planning skills and the wonderful people she works with - the florist’s work was gorgeous! I will recommend BEyong Weddings and Events to friends and family getting married in Japan.
TISH & BRONSON
Mie was the best thing that happened to us, if you want someone who can make your day as perfect as can be then she is your wedding planner! She was so meticulous and patient with us, adding little details that we never knew we needed. Thank you so much for finding the most stunning venue, arranging a legal marriage and giving us and our guests the most phenomenal day to remember xx
HARRIET & MATTHEW
Mie helped my partner and I plan our dream fairytale wedding in Kyoto, Japan. She is an excellent wedding planner with extreme attention to detail, and really helped us bring our Halloween Woodland fairytale wedding alive. Mie spoke excellent English that helped us achieve our wedding, and made my partner and I feel very comfortable. We cannot thank Mie enough for what she did for us, she is absolutely incredible! If you are planning for an wedding in Japan, I cannot recommend Mie enough!
JADE & MARK
Mie planned and helped us realise our dream elopement and legal wedding in Hokkaido, including mountains, forests and snow! She listened to all of our wishes, (despite some of them being quite tricky) and was in constant communication with us since the moment we first contacted her. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony script and the team she put together were also wonderful. We cannot thank or recommended her enough. Thank you again Mie. xx
KATE & ERROL
If you are looking for a dedicated, passionate and efficient planner for your wedding or elopement in Japan then we cannot recommend Mie highly enough! My wife and I recently married in Kyoto and the whole experience from our initial email to the big day was nothing short of excellent. Our initial planned location was made unavailable just a couple of months before but Mie was able to put together an alternative that we could have only ever dreamed of - at a Zen Buddhist temple with the ceremony performed by Zen Monk Sokan! It was incredibly special, unique and a memory to never be forgotten. Thank you Mie!

KYOTO in the forest
I am beyond pleased with the way they came out - even though we were so shy, we look so happy! It feels like a fairy tale!! I can't express how happy Victor and I are about the day we had with you. Your words were so touching, your planning was meticulous, and the way you handled the day with us was very considerate. We keep looking at pictures and getting all misty-eyed. I've already had a bunch of friends tell me they are so impressed and moved at how lovely it looked. I couldn't be happier!!! Thank you for everything you have done for us to make the wedding of our dreams come true ❤
EVA & ARTHUR
Two years ago, Mie-san helped us with the pre-wedding photo-shooting. Her passion and professionalism impressed us a lot, so we find her to organise our 1st marriage anniversary photo-shooting at Okakuen this time. We really love the Japanese garden view of Okakuen and 会席料理. It's another memorable moment to us!!!!
Thanks Mie-san and BEyond Weddings & Events.

When planning our dream wedding in Japan we started by contacting a few different wedding planners. From the start Mie stood out as a detailed oriented wedding planner who goes beyond just sending quotes. She really takes the time to get to know you and come up with wonderful wedding details that are really unique to you. Mie made every step of the wedding process so easy and stress free. On our big day at Kamigamo shrine she made sure that all of our guests arrived on time and even had interpreters to assist with our hair and makeup. She really made this the most amazing day in our life and without her it would not have been possible.
