I created the first wedding planning agency, Exclusive Wedding in 2005 in France. I am a creative and eternal passionate about the world of weddings and luxury, it was obvious to me to become a Wedding Planner when this job was completely unknown in the beginning. On November 1, 2005, I created the first one-week training in France "Become a Wedding Planner" and came across a strong demand for future Wedding Planners who wanted to follow my steps. Today, The Wedding Academy, has trained over 1200 Wedding Planners in France and internationally. Emma, Executive Director
From a school in Marketing and Communication, I moved into the world of fashion and event communication for several years with major brand names. I have always had a taste for fashion, refined decorations and the world of weddings ... It is therefore natural that the Wedding Planner project was born later. To do this, I took the Wedding Expert Training at the Wedding Academy and meeting Emma was a real turning point in my life, not only because today I'm Director of the Pop Love Wedding Agency, but also because I joined the team of the Wedding Academy!
