The Stars Inside is a bespoke wedding and elopement planning, styling, and design studio curating meaningful experiences in the world's most beautiful places. 

My name is Valentina, and I'm here for intentionally intimate weddings, adventurous elopements, and soulful brands. If you're looking to have a personal and authentic celebration full of light, love, and beauty - if you're a modern, imagination-driven couple wanting to do things a little differently - I'm your person.

My specialty is bringing to life experiences that inspire conversation and delight with considered detail. As you come together to celebrate with those chosen loved ones, I ensure every single person shares in the awe and leaves feeling like they know you even better - holding lifelong memories of so much more than just a party. I help you tell your story by designing an immersive atmosphere that feels like home, and by giving you time and space for what truly matters.

Like you, I believe in meaningful luxury, unapologetic enthusiasm, and wild imagination.
I believe in the power of celebrating the inner child, colouring outside the lines with intention,
and being present in every moment. I believe in bringing together spaces and people with thoughtfulness, creating intimacy and joy for each and every guest, and curating imagery that sparks wonder.
I'm inspired by genuine connections and real, candid moments.
Like you, I don't fit into boxes. 
I leave room for magic.
I play.

"Valentina is an incredible wedding planner and she has our full endorsement! She will work tirelessly for you, but only ever showing calm and being so respectful and friendly to everyone she comes across. Without her, I don't think our wedding would have been anywhere near as beautiful, personal, fun and special as it was! You will not only have a brilliant wedding planner, but a caring and dedicated friend. Some of our suppliers even gave us discounts for working with her, or say “I’ve been hoping to work with her for a long time" which really proves her abilities and that she's well-respected in the industry. Valentina will be the best decision that you can make as a couple and you won't be disappointed!"
