The wedding planner's job


Congratulations, you're getting married!

You've just been proposed to by your fiancé and your " Yes ! "pronounced, that your brain is already in turmoil with 3 main pieces of information to secure: Where? When? How?

More and more future brides and grooms want to live the happiest day of their lives to the full without the hassle of spending hours on the phone looking for a service provider (venue, caterer, DJ...) or knowing whether the decorations will be installed on time on the big day...

You've got a busy job, maybe you live abroad, you want to get married in a place several kilometers from home... It's hard to be on the spot and organize your wedding in such stress-free conditions...

Even with the best will in the world (family, parents, friends, ...) the countless details to think about will take up a lot of your time and energy...

That's when the question arises... " Why not call on the services of a Wedding Planner? "

The word is out: Wedding Planner! This profession, which comes straight from the Anglo-Saxon countries, is currently on the rise in France, offering you a solution for living out your wedding preparations in total serenity!


Your Wedding Planner will be your personal assistantthe orchestra conductor for your D-Day and architect of the many upstream preparations!

Once you've met the person, make your choice based on a number of criteria and skills. It's up to you to recruit the person with whom you have the best feeling. The one who understands you best in moments of doubt and complicity.

The one who can advise and reassure you.

For my part, after more than 15 years in a position of responsibility in an American pharmaceutical group in Paris, where I was in charge of event organization, I'm honored that future brides and grooms trust me to organize sumptuous weddings for 80 to 350 people in magnificent venues.

Your Wedding Planner will have to understand and define your world and the atmosphere you wish to give to your wedding, be a good listener, have empathy, know how to reassure, create a retro-planning with the different missions to be carried out, propose his team of professional wedding service providers, manage and respect your budget, create the floral scenography, plan the intervention of the services on the D-Day and above all guide you, reassure you during the months of preparations so that your wedding is the image of the dream you had of it.

For me, this business is a true passion, each wedding is unique!

I love meeting future brides and grooms, creating, planning and organizing the most beautiful day of their lives.

Whether you decide to have an intimate or a large-scale wedding, on the big day I'm there as a conductor, and it's always with great emotion that I witness your union.
