When was your business founded and what was the inspiration in getting started?
I worked as an experienced merchandiser from the world of luxury fashion. A solid foundation in fashion combined with a natural appreciation for the art of luxury are essential ingredients in my role today. I first started working in the weddings and events industry in 2010, whilst studying for my Masters in Florence, Italy. I worked as an assistant to a high-end planner in beautiful Tuscany, experiencing the pleasure of delivering dream events to clients. I have since been offering my services whilst developing a career in fashion, until 2016, when I decided to fully dedicate myself to being a wedding and events planner.
From a multicultural family, it is important for me that La Fête reflects my values. We will happily plan our clients’ event, wedding or trip across the globe, catering to their every wish with our multilingual team. We offer fully comprehensible solutions, from concept ideation for intimate events to high profile, show stopping occasions. La Fête tailors each experience individually, no matter what the challenge.
One common mistake to avoid when choosing a wedding supplier?
Make sure that you meet or at the very least Skype with each of your suppliers before confirming them. You need to make sure that you are both on the same page for your big day. Never book someone without having met them or spoken to them in detail about your plans, your vision and your priorities.
One top tip
Don’t forget that it’s your wedding day and everyone there will only have eyes for you both. So don’t sweat the small stuff, and enjoy!
Let your planner take the stress away from the planning, and enjoy every minute of being engaged, it normally only happens once.
