Dedicated to the art of meaningful celebrations, to finding inspiration from across the globe and bringing dreams into reality . From concept to creation, it is all about the SPLENDID experience.

I thrive on creating unforgettable luxury experiences. I believe that the union between travel and celebration is an art form, where wealth of experience meets magic, it's one I have spent years perfecting – adding a fresh, intuitive, inspiring and always unexpected touch to everything I do.

My wedding collection is made up of passionate world travellers, professionals, businessmen and celebrities who enjoyed the combination of refined European style with my passion for Africa, brining unparalleled creativity, bespoke service, an innate style and unmistakable excellence at every level.

Born in Russia, I grew up in Africa. I have travel and worked in South Africa, Botswana, Uganda, DRC, Zambia and Uganda.

I love discovering new and exciting locations for wedding celebrations.
Passion and Style
Working together we can combine passion with efficiency, personality with originality, dreams with detail and perfection with celebration.

Planning an event from beginning to end should not be just a checklist, but a journey which you enjoy every step of the way.

I am responsible for the whole process of wedding planning starting from the selection of the wedding venue and ending with the farewell of the last guest.

I am there every step of the way.
I have planned Christian, Traditional, Greek, Italian, Jewish and Muslim weddings and I loved learning the different ways cultures celebrate love and marriage.
