An international wedding planner & destination wedding consultant from London, UK. Originally from Italy, Elisabetta moved to the UK at 21, where she got a degree in Media & Communication, worked in the media industry and became an international wedding planner. Today Elisabetta uses her experience to help destination wedding venues refine their offering to book incredible destination weddings and maximise their revenue potential.
I know what it feels like.
Domestic weddings are starting to feel a bit too samey.
Most of the couples you work with are lovely, but a touch too traditional and predictable for your liking.
You’re craving more travel, more out of the ordinary weddings, and a laptop lifestyle that takes you around Europe and beyond.
You’re dreaming of exploring exciting new venues set among Tuscan vineyards or the blue Mediterranean seaside.
Your Instagram feed is flooded with dreamy images of destination wedding photographers and inside you feel that pull, wishing that it were you the one who planned them.
Act on that desire and make it all come true.
In 2009 I trained to become a wedding planner, but for some reason I kept sabotaging my career path telling myself it was an impractical dream.
By 2011 I was working 4 days a week in a media agency, handling 7 accounts, working 45+ hour a week and crying on my way to work almost every day. I loved my job, but I hated the corporate environment.
I needed a way out.
A friend gave me the opportunity to freelance in his design and communication studio, working 3 days a week from home. It was time to take the leap.
With 2 days suddenly available, I started working on my wedding planning business. For some inexplicable reason, I told myself that I wanted to do UK weddings only. However, being an Italian in London people's assumption was that I was a destination planner who specialised in weddings in Italy.
And so before I knew it, enquiries for Italy started coming in. Convinced that it would have been a walk in the park, I started promoting my destination services and in no time I booked weddings in Italy and Egypt. Except I wasn't making enough money to quit my freelance job.
I wanted to book those weddings so badly, I kept my prices at a level that was barely profitable. And worse still, I was wasting a crazy amount of time making costly mistakes, like promising couples a fast turnaround, to then let them down because the suppliers weren't as proactive and responsive as I'd hoped.
I had no one to guide me through the process
I was pretending that I knew the markets inside out, yet feeling like a fraud because I actually knew very little about doing weddings abroad and I was constantly getting stuck with unresponsive and uncooperative suppliers. And to top it all off, my branding kept attracting the wrong type of clients.
It took a lot of introspective work, losing my father and my motivation and working with people I had no alignment with to realise something had to change.
After countless online courses and coaching harnessing everything I know about marketing and communication, I can finally say I've learnt the hard way and figured out exactly what kind of international wedding planner I want to be. Today I plan intimate weddings with the most perfect couples in the most incredible destinations.
I understand the ins and outs of the destination wedding industry and pass that knowledge on to aspiring destination wedding planners that target international weddings.
There are times I asked myself: “What would I change about my career path?”
In all honesty, not getting business support right from the start.
Today you can get that support so you don’t have to make the same mistake.
Let me help you get things right, Now!
I believe in support from the heart; honest advice; authentic and genuine words of wisdom shared from a place of love and desire to see you succeed.
One-to-one consulting is the perfect way to get ongoing support for a one-off or a period of 4 months.
Working as a wedding planner can be fairly lonely if you have no business partner, but working as a destination one can be even harder. I know exactly what it’s like! I understand your challenges and will help you make sure your business is in the best shape possible.
Through my one-to-one consulting we will work on your motivation, help you achieve clarity and improve your knowledge of how to run as a destination wedding planner, so you can start working internationally and survive the most challenging first year as an international wedding planner, or finesse your services and offering.
We will cover your why, discuss the common traits of destination wedding couples and why that matters, deep dive into the most common challenges and how to counteract them, and share the practical know-how of how to plan a destination wedding.
