that are beautiful inside and out

I plan, design and manage extraordinary celebrations in the UK, Europe and all over the world. 

My specialty is bringing to life bespoke, slow living experiences that inspire conversation and delight with considered detail. I'm here so you can create deeper connections  through a heartfelt, elevated event experience - holding lifelong memories of SO much more than just a party.  

Creating beautiful spaces is key to what I do - no detail spared from the love, joy, and care that I am so proud to pour into my work. But at the heart of it, it's even deeper than that - I want your event to feel like home, like THIS is the day that was made for you, where you want to share stories and freeze time. I want to create room for the things that life rushes by: for candle-lit conversations, for dancing even after the music has stopped, for crying and laughing all at once. The magic is all already there: I'm just here to make sure there is time and space for it, and for the things that truly matter.

The Stars Inside is an international wedding planning and full-service event design studio curating meaningful experiences in the world's most beautiful places. 

My name is Valentina, and I'm a destination event planning specialist for couples and clients all over the globe. I'm here for your intentionally intimate weddings, your soulful elopements, and your mindfully designed milestones of life. If you're looking to host an event full of light, love, and beauty - if you're imagination-driven and wanting to do things a little differently - if you like the idea of combining adventure with meaningful luxuries - I'm your person, and I'll travel with you anywhere in the world you want to go.
