About me

The Expat Weddingplanner

Weddingplanning for International Couples



My name is Beatrice Betley. I was born in Germany and moved to the Netherlands in 1976 with my parents where I spend my childhood. After studied and graduated in Germany (Fashiondesign) and Italy (Fashion & Interior Design) and a traineeship in the design industry in Germany I came back to the Netherlands in the late 1990 where I worked as a Visual Merchandising Manager responsible for the 400+ Pan-European stores of a global footwear retailer; had my own Interior Design agency and have worked for many years in Global Sourcing and Procurement in the fresh produce industry collaborating closely with people in countries as far as Chile and Peru to India and New Zealand.


As a Wedding Planner and Wedding Designer I have just attended the first ever EPIC workshop in London, headed by leading wedding Designers Sarah Haywood, Marcy Blum and Diane Khoury and am proud to now be a member of the Event Planners International Collaborative.




You want your wedding to be all about you. You want someone that understands you as an International Couple but has the local knowledge and can help you realize your dreams. You want the time leading up to your big day filled with excitement and anticipation not with stress and headaches. But there are so many things that need to be organized and this is where I can assist you. Are you are looking for a special venue? I will pre-select some according to your specifications and you can then chose. Looking for the perfect dress? Let me help you in finding it. DJ/ Band, photographer? Managing the ever changing guest list? Making sure aunty Minnie and uncle Edward are getting picked up in style form the airport? Flower arrangements, catering, budget control? Let me be the fairy in the background that gets it done or - if you wish - even the Front of House on the day.


Your wedding should be all about you.


I am here to make sure you do not only enjoy the big day itself but also the time leading up to it.


Being a designer I can visualize your ideas. My previous career in commercial positions mean I will not shun away from negotiations with vendors. And speaking 6 languages I can organize your wedding even abroard.


From "A" as in authorities to "Z" as in the delicious Zabaione desert I will be here to see it done.



Let me know your dreams for the day !!
