What I do
Organize, curate, and tell your story with a team you trust and respect, and without the constraints of fitting into a box or style. I give you the thoughtful excitement and loyalty of a close friend, with the calm, discerning taste, and knowledge of an experienced wedding planner.
What you do
Enjoy all the wonder, heart, and stars of your celebration. You take the time to experience it all. You live the journey, love hard, breathe deep, dream big, and have fun.
WHAT I’M ALL ABOUT
I’m here for intentionally intimate weddings and elopements with character, thoughtfully curated and seamlessly executed. Beyond aesthetic beauty, I believe in wholehearted hospitality – in creating an experience made up of moments where you and your loved ones are fully connected.
Here at The Stars Inside I offer a comprehensive planning and bespoke design service anywhere in the world, specializing in soulful elopements and unique, distinctive, intimate weddings – celebrations that feel like home, no matter the size. I pride myself in redefining the concept of micro weddings, and curating experiences that are heartfelt and authentic, where every detail is considered. What fills my heart the most is connecting with madly in love couples that want to shake things up a bit, and be true to themselves without preconceptions or expectations on what their wedding should be. I’m not here for the posed, scripted, and staged – I’m here for the story weavers, the box-defiers, and the magic-believers.
A wedding, at the very heart of it all, is just one quiet moment – it’s sharing a kiss that vows: I don’t ever want to live without you. It’s one instant of light and love so large that everything else for the rest of your life will fit within it. It’s a reason so deep that you’ll forever find the courage, patience, and humility to fight for it.

A BIT MORE ABOUT MY PHILOSOPHY
My philosophy is that your wedding is an opportunity to celebrate life, to be present, and to appreciate the beauty of both individuality and togetherness. I also believe in creating with, rather than creating for – being your planner is a partnership, and I will always afford it the attention it deserves.
My promise to you is that I will always be generous with my time, I will care about your celebrations with all my heart, and I will find you the most exceptionally talented suppliers to make sure every detail takes your breath away.
I will always encourage you to embrace your own individual style: one of the joys of helping you tell your story is uncovering how to weave unique, personalised elements into your wedding concept, thereby instilling a sense of belonging and creating meaningful talking points for your loved ones, and a heartfelt and mindful experience for you. I want you to feel present in every moment – and I want it to feel like your venue was built especially for you – like your wedding could never have been anywhere else, on any other day.
PEACE OF MIND & OF HEART
As a boutique agency with a highly personalized touch, I don’t offer one-size-fits-all pricing or packages. Wedding planning can be different things to different people, but first and foremost it is an investment in you.
To ensure I’m as physically, mentally, and creatively charged for you as I can be, I only take on a limited number of events and collaborations each year, based on style and affinity. Client experience is my top priority, starting with a discovery consultation and a custom proposal the reflects your needs. We’ll chat over email, Skype, coffee, or cocktails, and find out if we’re the right partners for one another. If you feel a connection with my work beyond the realm of price-shopping and you would like to leap into this adventure together, I’m all in.

Whether you’re looking for a wedding planner to join you for the whole journey, a stylist to help you with the aesthetics, or support in bringing to life an intimate elopement anywhere around the world – whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist – whether your venue is a manor, an art gallery, or a cliffside – I’ve got you. If you’re here to create a celebration that is true to YOU, I’m your person.
I will support you every step of the journey. I collaborate with you to create experiences that are imaginative, stylish, and impeccably executed, making magic all along the way by capturing the legacy of who you are becoming together. Because, after all is said and done, what really matters is that you come out of it making each other’s heart beat that little bit faster. What matters is those moments in between, the way you look at each other when you laugh, and waking up next to each other for the rest of your days.
