Here at The Stars Inside I offer a comprehensive planning and bespoke design service anywhere in the world, specialising 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 microweddings, 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.
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.
Peace of mind & wildness 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 partnerrs 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.

Intimate weddings and elopements with character, thoughtfully curated and seamlessly executed. Your day is about YOU - plan it with intention and take what you like, leave what you don't.
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 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 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.
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.
Every couple I work with is unique and so are your needs, so I'll tailor this service to you.

COME AWAY WITH US
Working with a wedding planner, to me, means being in it together, from day one to day of. It means having someone to bounce ideas off whenever you need – someone to give you straight-talking, un-biased, experience-based advice from the heart. We work closely from the very start, to get to know each other better, talk through your ideas, and outline the timeline of the planning journey. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that everything will get done at the most natural pace: nothing will be forgotten, or slip through the cracks, because I’ll keep my finger on the pulse of each to-do. We’ll refine both the creative and the practical side until every supplier, every detail, and every decision reflects the story YOU want to tell. The styling of your day (how it will look and feel) plays a key role in the support I offer couples, because I believe it's a powerful way of translating your love story into a space, and bottling up that joy into visual memories for years to come.
A WEDDING PLANNER IS AN INVESTMENT IN THE VALUE OF YOUR
TIME & Peace of MIND.
But this isn’t a case of style over substance – I'll go through budgets, contracts, timelines, emails, accessibility, schedules, floorplans, calculations – and be as involved in the logistics as you want me to be. I’ll give you regular status updates on our progress, so we can be efficient and intentional with the time you spend on wedmin. My aim is to create the space and time for you to love and have fun and feel truly inspired, and to enjoy looking forward to your wedding. I’ll guide you in finding a team of talented suppliers that you trust and that align with your vision. I’ll help you ask the right questions and foresee consequences so that, on the day, everything feels as sensational as it is effortless. I'm as much a strategist as a doer – and ALWAYS a confidant that cares about your wedding as much as you do.
On the wedding day, no task is too big or too small – I’m on hand to problem solve, smooth over, tidy, keep the schedule ticking, look after guests and suppliers, oversee every transition, protect your interests, surround you with beauty, and make sure you smile so hard all day that your face hurts.
My advice to couples is this: spend money where your stress is. Planning (and being at) your wedding shouldn't be stressful, it should be FUN - so if something is causing you worry, that's where investing your budget will make the most impact to you. If you're afraid the day will rush by and you might not remember everything, hire a fantastic photographer to capture every moment. If you're worried about key tasks or making it all fit together, hire a skilled planner - and if you don't think you have time or energy to add in those special details, hire a stylist and kickass team of creative vendors to bring to life a wedding celebration that is as much art as it is functional. It's all about your priorities and your values, and what is right for YOU.
If you think you'd like the support of a planner for your wedding, do take your time getting to know a few of us - from our websites, our work, our testimonials, and in-person or Skype consultations. Finding the right partner for you is key to ensuring the planning journey is as fun, efficient, and stress-free it can be, and it's all about affinity of heart (personality) and mind (creativity). Some planners specialise in particular geographies, styles, or types of celebrations, and it's ok to ask that question - the relationship will work best when built on a foundation of openness, honesty, and transparency.
My signature and specialty revolves around the creative process itself - what excites me most is to take the seed of an idea and bring it to life over the course of the months during which we work together. In that sense, there are three common threads to all the work I do:
1. Story. I believe that a wedding is a story of the couple, and as such it's more about how everything works together than the individual style of any given element. The ceremony, reception, and party are chapters, and each should "feel" like hanging out with the couple feels. The process of planning the wedding is part of it too, as the couple grows stronger and more in love with each other's thoughts.
2. Detail. I believe in the art of meaningful and thoughtful detail - whether there's one or hundreds. In that sense, I can get just as excited about a clean, minimalist vibe as I can about a surreal, fairytale wedding. What matters to me is that every detail is curated to have purpose, depth, and a part to play in the story - and is told in a seamless choreography.
3. Play. I believe in the power of play, and of colouring outside the lines with intention. It's about freeing the imagination of the inner child - the removal of preconceptions, the uninhibited exploration of space, and the magic that happens when you take ideas and feelings to to the edge of realism. It's about playing make-believe.
If you think a playful, detail-oriented storyteller might be your kind of person, come say hi.
