Let's get acquainted...

Tell me your story and  let's imagine your beautiful moment together

And if  shared  a long way ?

   Dreamer, traveler, joie de vivre, curious, and above all romantic,  my heart swung to events  after spending almost 15 years in the world of luxury hotels.

During all these years, I had the chance to travel and work  in the 4 corners of the world, meet exceptional people, discover magical places and share a lot of emotions  and I don't intend to stop there. 

My  last adventure in the hotel industry happened in Geneva,  Switzerland where  I have learned "  No request is too great and no  retail  is too small  ". This experience made me want to apply everything I learned in the organization and fly on my own. However, we do not improvise  wedding planner  overnight.  I packed my bags and  left  in the south of France follow a 3-month certified training at the Jaelys School  in Aix-en-Provence, France. During this training, in addition to having met  a  person who is me  dear, I fell in love with the region and here I am 3 months later in La Ciotat. Magnificent  city on the Mediterranean coast between Marseille and Toulon.

As a true epicurean, I appreciate above all the small pleasures of life, harmony, smiles and tears of joy. 

To be able to take advantage of  each  moment that is offered to us and where nothing is left  randomly is part of my daily life. What I like above all is to see the happiness in people's eyes.

And here I am  ready to  meet you, listen to your beautiful story and above all to  accompany you for several days, months, even years with  a touch of madness so that your event is authentic and such  than you imagined!

It's all a matter of feeling

Besides being your  Wedding & Event Planner,  lean on me and i promise you can count on me  before, during and after the day of your event. 

A meeting will be enough to know if there is a chemistry between us to be able to go a long way together in this beautiful adventure.

Let the magic happen and it's up to us to write the rest
