British Destination Weddings and Events Planner
Julia is a native English-speaking Weddings and Events Planner located on the Charente/ Charente Maritime border near to the spa town of Jonzac 17500 in Nouvelle Aquitaine. Ideally placed only 60 minutes from Bordeaux but nestled amongst the Cognac vines surrounded by historic and oh so pretty Chateaux, Domaines and Maisons De Maitres. The historic towns of Cognac and Angouleme are reachable in 45 mins and the beautiful coast of the Charente Maritime is less than an hour away.
My love of all things French started when my parents took me, as a child, on a year long adventure throughout France. We skied in the Alps and sunbathed on the Riviera and enjoyed so many beautiful villages along the way, I promised myself that one day I would return. Later my travels took me throughout Asia finally settling in Sydney, Australia, where my background was in Corporate Event and Sales Management for a large Cosmetics House. My success, based on my organisational and project management skills, product knowledge and development of local contacts persuaded me, when I finally relocated to France, to follow a natural progression to Wedding and Event Management and Planning.
France offers so many magical venues and I was married here myself. The 10 years I have lived in this fabulous country have been everything I had hoped for and during that time I have built substantial local knowledge and contacts. I now work with trusted partner venues and host both small, intimate, weddings and grand wedding events for hundreds that last a weekend. I host Celebratory Events from special birthdays to family celebrations. I am passionate about creating your special day. I love helping couples realise their dream on one of the happiest days of their lives and making beautiful memories for those renewing vows or celebrating a special birthday.
