I’m originally from Oxford in the UK. I worked in television and film production in the early years of my career, but my love for new experiences meant that I always jumped at the chance to travel. This was how I landed in Verbier 15 years ago and the Alpine town became my home and primary base for work.
I have over 19 years experience in luxury hospitality. I’ve worked extensively as an independent event manager and love the challenge of the impossible. I have worked all over the world in various hospitality and event management roles, these have included being the Deputy General Manager of a hotel complex in the alps, consisting of multiple bars, a nightclub and restaurant. I was a Manager at Sir Richard Branson’s Lodge in Verbier in the Swiss Alps. I worked as the Hospitality Manager for the Formula 1 Ferrari Team while following the F1 circuit and I've also worked as a core member of the team who stage the annual Polaris Music Festival held in Verbier, Switzerland.
I love to create amazing, unforgettable experiences and go the extra mile in whatever I do. I believe it’s the little extras that make a large difference!

"Stop right here, you have found your event planner. Vanessa is extremely professional, kind and and expert in her field. I have seen Vanessa work for many years and have only ever heard good feedback, and so we decided to work with her for our 2022 wedding in Verbier. It could not have been smoother, easier and more enjoyable. Vanessa really made the whole experience for us so easy, and we highly recommend her!"
"My husband and I got married in June 2023 in Le Rouge and the ceremony took place in the field just behind. We live in Lausanne and while it’s not far away it’s far enough to need help with organising. Vanessa was an absolute dream come true! Thanks to Vanessa’s skills and experience and impeccable taste, our wedding was everything we wanted and more! We can’t recommend Vanessa enough. She understood our vision in a heartbeat, wasn’t afraid to give her input which inspired many decisions and most importantly managed to coordinate the day/night in a way that allowed my husband and I to enjoy every second to the fullest without a single worry. We truly have her to thank for making the day as special as it was. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! "

"I cannot recommend Vanessa highly enough as a most effective, imaginative and charming event planner, group organiser and group hostess. I have been using Vanessa for the planning and organisation of events as well as group trips for approaching ten years, as well as being a guest at a number events that Vanessa has organised. Not only does she have that special intimate touch and do a great job when everything is going to plan, but she can also show real inventiveness and adaptability when faced with last minute requests and unforeseen challenges…. My extended 50th birthday weekend being a classic example of all of the above!! So especially many thanks again for that Vanessa!"

"Vanessa was the glue that held together our time in Verbier! She is the most wonderful hostess: she is friends with everyone, knows everywhere, and is extraordinarily patient. She helped organise our entire trip, from hotels to restaurants to guides to piste recommendations. Most importantly, she's great fun to be around - and a mean skier. Even months after the trip we have remained in touch and we'll definitely meet in Verbier again!"

“If planning an event in Verbier, Vanessa and her team are who you need. Vanessa knows just about everybody and can sort just about anything! She’s incredibly organised and made me feel completely at ease in the lead up - and on the night itself i could just switch off knowing everything was being taken care of. From first contact with Vanessa, she was warm, friendly and professional, I can't recommend her enough!"
Louise - Private client
"I just wanted to thank you again for the most incredible job well done. It is not an easy task to make me relax and enjoy something I have organised and I had absolute confidence in you to handle it so I felt just like I was at someone else’s party. You were calm, professional, kind, smiley - even in the face of indoor lightning and rain - and I never once felt like I had to get involved. Everyone complimented you on how incredibly well planned and executed it all was and how lovely you were. Thank you thank you thank you. It was perfect!"
“Thank you to Vanessa for taking our vision and delivering a wedding that was beautiful, special and a ton of fun. Vanessa was professional and thoughtful, had a calming presence throughout the process and was incredibly friendly and upbeat. Planning a destination wedding can be particularly challenging and Vanessa made it feel super seamless by staying connected (and jumping on calls as needed!), recommending a terrific team of vendors, and leaving no planning stone unturned. We would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone having a wedding or event in Verbier; it was a pleasure working with her.”
