Destination Wedding Planner
I started Wonderlust Events after 5 years of meticulously planning corporate events and my very own destination wedding.
Making memories is extremely important to me. I've made some of my best memories through experiencing different countries & cultures with my loved ones. Pair this with one of the most spectacular days of your life and voila you have a destination wedding.
This is what gave me the inspiration to become a Destination Wedding Planner. That way I get to use my travel knowledge and organisational skills to create some of your most precious and everlasting memories.
What I love most about a destination wedding is that it gives you and your guests a real wanderlust buzz. It gives them a chance to experience somewhere new. It turns your wedding into a week long celebration filled with excitement, love, sun kissed friends, al fresco dining, and numerous Aperol Spritz.
Being based near London also gives me the opportunity to plan & style weddings in the UK. I love quirky unconventional venues that you can really put your mark on, such as an industrial London warehouse or a botanical orangery. We can transform any space to showcase your individuality.
Wherever you choose to hold your magical wedding, whether that is on the cliffs of Santorini, in a Spanish Hacienda or a French Chateau, I will be there with you to create a relaxed, chic & stylish wedding that will provide timeless memories for you, your friends and family.
Destination Wedding Planner
Hi Everyone, I’m Valentina!
I’ve worked in the event industry for 10 years between the hospitality and corporate world with my dream always having been to work within the wedding industry. Holly & I previously worked together planning and running events so not only did we previously have a fantastic working relationship we have also been dear friends for many years now.
Everyone always asks where I am from due to my name - I am half British and half Italian but born and raised in the UK.
I married my best friend of 12 years in 2017 and with being half Italian having a destination wedding was an easy choice for me. We held our wedding day at the amazing Vignamaggio in Tuscany for a weekend of fun and laughter with our nearest and dearest. My true love for weddings came to light during this time. There is something truly magical about making a dream a reality, however I will also never forget someone said to us that you can make all the arrangements for your perfect day, but you cannot control the atmosphere and that’s all down to your amazing family and friends! I truly believe all couples should remember this to make those precious moments even more special to exceed all your expectations.
During my wedding process it was so evident how priceless having a wedding planner is to help with the nitty gritty, the knowledge and expertise of all thing’s wedding and piecing every tiny detail together to ensure the day runs smoothly without any hiccups. It’s a dream come true planning & creating our clients unique and stylish weddings across the globe and seeing this turn into a beautiful memorable moment.
