“..I have to thank my mother if I am now a wedding planner and designer, she is indeed the person who, with passion and talent, founded Leoeventi in 2004. Then the pupil overtook the master 🙂 and throughout the years with an incredible passion I developed all the skills needed to plan dream weddings. I have attended and supervised several events, and yet each time I witness the thrill in the eyes of the bride and the groom, I feel moved and enriched.
After taking a Degree in Political Science with specialization in Economics at Turin’s University, I followed a marketing course at the London School of Economics which gave me a wider knowledge of the field. I acquired a remarkable experience in the fashion industry as franchise owner and manager of an important show room for five years and then together with my mother , I started Leoeventi. Specializing in wedding planning, the company boasts a high end clientele, from Italy and from abroad, who dreams of an unforgettable wedding day set in an exclusive and carefully selected venue.
I was born in Italy but I’ve always loved traveling to draw inspiration from different places and cultures. Over the years my passion for beautiful things led me to range over my studies in the fashion and design world with a winking look at the Made in Italy, then in 2015 I landed into the bespoke events world becoming a wedding designer.
My job consists in identifying my clients real needs, providing professional advice aimed at achieving their desires and assisting them at all stages of the event. I specialize in event planning, design and production: weddings, meetings, parties, corporate events that reflect the unique style and needs of my clients.
“I still believe in they lived happily ever after and this starts with the perfect wedding”
