Cristina and Paola

Paola & Cristina met years ago thanks to a shared passion for dancing. Both were professional dancers and studied with the same teachers in Rome.Contrary to what usually happens in show business, we immediately got on well and become very good friends. Thanks to the summer tour of the Italian TV programme "la sai l'Ultima?" back in 2000, we spent months travelling around Italy and formed a great bond.

Time didn’t separate us, even when Paola moved to London in 2005. Despite the distance, we were able to strengthen a sincere and deep relationship.

​We believe the secret of our friendship is down to the ability to see things through the other’s eyes and being able to be honest with each other (an indispensable skill especially now that we are business partners!!!)

Over the next few years Cristina ran the secretariat of companies’ events for political parties, whilst Paola continued as a professional dancer and choreographer and integrated it with a passion for filmmaking and organisation of events.In the summer 2011, we took the bold decision which has changed our lives forever.........LILI WEDDING ROME

Cristina had been thinking of starting the business for a while and in the summer of 2011, she asked Paola to become her business partnerin this fantastic adventure, as she was sure it was the winning choice: same origin, same passion, similar tastes, complementary skills and lots of energy and positivity. From the minute we committed to this project we’ve never looked back and never stopped.

We undertook training courses to enhance our expertise organising events focusing specifically on weddings; we designed the logo, we worked on the site, we carefully selected our suppliers and even today we continue to upgrade our capabilities.​In these early years, we have arranged several exciting marriages, realising our dream which continues to grow each day with great satisfaction.Cristina has become a professor of wedding planning and passes onto students what she has learnt in those years of experience. In last few months, a new member has joined th team….. Fabio is an old friend of Cristina and an expert in Web Marketing.
