SO LOVELY TO MEET YOU!
I’m Elisabetta White, international wedding & event planner and stylist with a passion for intimately inspired events. I help clients like you, passionate travellers and authentic brands, to plan your perfect wedding, elopement or event, in the most breathtaking settings and destinations.
For years I planned advertising campaigns for international clients, but the truth is, as much as I loved my job, I felt that I was losing touch with my creative soul. As that feeling of emptiness became stronger and stronger, I realised I had to follow my heart and channel all my energy and skills into something that would fill my life with love, joy and creativity. That’s how my path into wedding and event planning started.
My work has been featured on international blogs and magazines including ELLE, but the only recognition that truly matters is when a bride gives you a hug at the end of her wedding day shedding a little tear; it’s a groom unexpectedly thanking you during in his speech; it’s that 3-word email from your client that reads: “You are magic;” it’s standing at a distance, watching how every element of your special day has flawlessly come together, and feeling your heart filling up with fuzzy, happy thoughts – a sense of peace, pride and love.
If you are planning a magical destination wedding, elopement or event in the UK, Italy, Egypt or somewhere more exotic; if your special day is all about the culmination of love, not about impressing others; if it is about emotions, about creating memorable experiences, and you love effortless sophistication, then we should talk.
Head over to my Contact page and send me as much details as you can about your special day.
Let’s start the journey together, now.
I’m a believer that the key to a happy, long-term client-planner relationship is affinity. There are times that my clients and I realise we have a lot in common. When that happens, I know that planning their wedding will lead to a beautiful long-lasting friendship…
I grew up...
…in Italy, but have been living in the UK for now half of my life.
I feel at home in...
… 4 different cities, in 3 different countries, over 2 different continents – London, Milan, Ostuni (Puglia) and Sharm el Sheikh.
… “I’m a citizen of the world” and “Home is where your heart is” both apply to me. Being an expat is both a curse and a blessing!
People always ask me...
… “What language do you dream in?” No idea! Italian is my mother tongue, but English is often the language I prefer to communicate in. And I hardly ever remember my dreams…
I’m terrified of...
… dogs, but I love them. In my dreams one day I’ll be a pug’s mamma.
My favourite colours are...
… white and gold; and minimalism. I know, it’s not a colour, but in my head the three go hand in hand.
I'm not a fan of...
… ignorant people who are also arrogant. Worse combo ever! I passionately dislike chair covers too. Please, don’t ask me for chair covers. It’s not happening, I mean it.
… I have been skiing since the age of 4 and absolutely love the adrenaline rush it gives me
In 5 years’ time...
… I’ll be doing exactly what I’m doing now, but I hope my base will be from a luxury hammock on a beach and my tea breaks will consist of a dip in the sea.
THINGS THAT MAKE MY HEART SKIP A BEAT
I enjoy lots of things. In fact, I probably enjoy doing too many things. I could quite easily jump from one hobby to another and fill my life with exciting projects, but in the end I always go back to the few things I love. These are the things that define me. They are the ones that make me happy from within. They are the things that shape my life and as a reflection my work too.
My partner in crime and in business. My (im)perfect complement.
Chilling on the rooftop of our Ostuni home. Nothing's more authentic than that view.
The simplicity of home food. The colours alone make me happy!
My crazy Italian family. Because looks and hands speak louder than words 🙂
Pouring my emotions out with pen and paper.
"The cure to everything is salt. Sweat, tears or the sea."
My iPhone; it keeps me connected to the people I love wherever they are.
Immense breath-taking sunsets by the sea.
I’m inspired by interior design. I pretty much cannot live without my monthly Living Etc. fix!
"If we were meant to stay in one place, we'd have roots instead of feet."
