Destination weddings in Provence, South of France
with Muriel Saldalamacchia

TOP 50


In 2017, Muriel joined the inner circle of the world elite planners at the occasion of the Planners Xtraordinaire Show in Dubai which gathered hundreds of her peers, coming from over 30 countries. It was not a goal for her, but Muriel was humbled of being distinguished and recognized for the great job she does daily with her clients and partners.



Muriel just happened to end up in the wedding industry. When she first founded her company to promote corporate events as a DMC, she was asked to organize a wedding. After she declined four times, she finally accepted the challenge, with the only promise that this wedding would not be boring nor meringue > all the clichés she really hated since being a young girl. The young girl grew up. Muriel still abhors boring and meringue weddings.



As only providing exclusive and full planning services, Muriel decided some years ago to only accept from eight to a maximum of ten destination weddings to handle a year. To guarantee high results and success for your destination wedding, you deserve her widest availability Muriel has to offer. Few couples = umpteen details that make the whole difference.
