i'm helena

As a passionate wedding planner and translator with a romantic soul, I adore celebrating the special moments in life in magical places and creating an authentic experience for my couples. Using my creativity and my eye for a detail, I can translate your dreams into an unforgettable and incredible reality. I enjoy organizing tailor-made and unique wedding weekends during which you and your guests can laugh, relax and enjoy.

My intense love for and interest in Italy and France led me to study the language and history of both countries at university where I met my husband and graduated as a translator. Driven by our sense for adventure and our love for travelling, my husband and I organized our unforgettable wedding weekend in Siena, Tuscany where we started our own love journey. Three busy kids later, I was ready to pursue my goals and to start doing what I love the most.

My passion for organizing has become my work and I wouldn’t want to do anything else. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than seeing the result of an intense collaboration with a likeminded team of quality vendors, seeing the smiles on people’s faces and hearing the reviews of satisfied couples. My goal is to make your dreams come true and to help as you begin your own unique story together. If you want to get to know more about me or my love for Italy and France, follow me on social media or contact me. I truly hope this inspires you and that I can join you on the exciting journey of creating your dream wedding.

Let’s start our journey!

Helena, once again, we wish to thank you whole heartedly for the efforts you and your team made to turn our wedding in Italy into a top-weekend! It was perfect for all of us. Already during the preparations, you immediately understood what our intentions were, and everything turned out above expectations! You took away all the worries, meaning that we ourselves could enjoy everything for the full 100%; the beautiful location you found us – sufficient bedrooms and a swimming pool, the entire planning, the gorgeous decoration. Your eye for detail, your punctuality, but also your flexibility during the entire wedding weekend... you were fantastic! From the depth of our hearts, thank you so very much!!

It was a breath of fresh air to work with somebody who understood what we wanted and the road we longed to take. Everything was shipshape and Bristol fashion as the saying goes, and also communication was perfect. We would not only like to recommend you, we would love to book you for further occasions as well.

You dream of an unforgettable wedding? Then, at Art’Anna you are at the right address. Helena will take care of all your ideas, your wishes and your worries. In this way you can enjoy a carefree day! With her eye for detail and her creativity, she creates unforgettable memories. Due to her relations a high level of service is guaranteed. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn’t change one single detail. Thank you, Helena. You made our Tuscan dream come true!!

bruce + tessa

Helena, as from the first meeting with you we felt super at ease as a couple. Our wishes and dreams were smoothly but resolutely transformed into reality. The result is something we will cherish forever, a magical wedding day! A superb location, super organisation and a clear love for your trade. Top! The best thing about the preparations was that we as a couple only had to take care of the fun parts. What makes the picture complete is that you paid for instance also attention to our 1st wedding anniversary... We hope and are sure that you will make many more couples happy in the future!

kristof + brigit

Helena has a very personal approach: she listened to our every wish and could translate it perfectly into the organisation of an unforgettable weekend. A wedding abroad involves much organisation; therefore, it is nice and comfortable to have somebody there with experience to follow things up. Our wedding weekend was absolutely fantastic! An unforgettable experience thanks to Art’Anna! Thanks, Helena!

arne + sarah

Some three weeks ago we were guests in Italy for the wedding of our best friends; it was organised and cared for by Helena, all to the smallest detail. Nothing is too much for her, when you asked her for something she already had anticipated on it (a glass of white wine for the bride and witness)!! I will always remember her work drive, her passion, but especially her friendliness. Should I ever in the future need to throw a good party, I know whom to turn to for getting the picture right!!! If you even can make a super-nervous best man like myself feel relaxed, you are one of the better wedding planners – let me correct myself: the ultimate top in my eyes!! Keep up the good work and who knows….see you soon!

andres + an-sofie

Helena was the one who ensured that we always finalised everything in due time and who assisted us in word and deed when something changed (once more). Everything was worked out to the smallest detail and we would do it again any time. We received an astonishing amount of positive reactions from family and friends and I feel sure that everybody looks back on it with great remembrances.

You added the necessary tranquillity and structure to our special day! We needn’t worry about anything because you had everything under control! Thanks to you we could enjoy our day that much!

jeroen + melody

Art’Anna is more than just a wedding planner. You can contact her for all your questions and ideas. In the months before the wedding a very nice bond develops, in which you create the perfect event together. Helena sees to everything in a very professional way and also her assistant ensured that the wedding day went super smooth. Helena knew, with her great passion of Italy, perfectly how she should create the Italian atmosphere for our wedding, always taking into account our wishes and ideas. A top team! A nice and friendly cooperation towards that unique day in our lives … It was super!!

Helena is a topper - that much is certain. A wonderful relaxed appearance, concealing an incredibly vibrant personality. I learned to know her as extremely perfectionistic, with a great sense of style, detail and planning. Her 'black booklet’ is filled to the borders with the best suppliers, and she is a master in tying things up. Her knowledge of La Bella Italia needs no further comment; it is simply remarkable. Coupled to her knowledge of Italian, she opens with Art'Anna all doors in a firmly efficient (but fine!) manner. Did I already mention that we are a fan of hers?!

She is the sweetest girl in the world!!! Professional and really organised (!!!!). We love working with her! If you want the best of everything, with flawless execution and a vendor that makes your special day as important as her special day, she is YOUR wedding Planner.

Helena & Bert, you did so much more than we expected from you. You ensured a seamless proceeding and an absolutely carefree day for us. We could enjoy everything from A to Z thanks to you! You were SOOO professional, relaxed, discrete and careful throughout the whole day. We would redo our wedding day immediately, of course with you involved again . Thank you very much for all your help on the loveliest day of the year. Thank you, we will never ever forget.

You are about to embark on a glorious journey with the love of your life. Your every wish is to surprise your loved one on a place that has a special meaning for you or at a dazzling location in Belgium, France or Italy with the sole purpose to get that one answer, that one all-meaning word: YES. In close collaboration with you, I plan the proposal as unobtrusive as possible; I ensure that you, but also your future partner, can enjoy this ultimate moment intensely and that every minute will be recorded for you to relive everything in years to come. Say yes to new adventures!

The theory is that as wedding planner, I organise and coach your wedding in Belgium, France and Italy. Truth is that I create experiences that for you commence as from the first moment we meet and that you can enjoy together with your guests on your wonderful day. For me, a wedding is a personal and intimate happening that brings many emotions. During the entire preparation, on the wedding day and also thereafter I am for you the ultimate person to call upon with your remarks and questions, or for just a simple cosy chat. My target is to make your wedding come true at that one magical place and to make you fully enjoy the preparations and the wedding itself. Your love for each other and your personalities take for me central stage. This will be a unique tailor-cut wedding; with a smile and a tear; with joy and happiness; a feel-good trip - a dream voyage for the both of you. Say yes to the start of an amazing journey of a lifetime!

I cherish an intimate wedding, where you both are surrounded by family and best friends and where your love is everything. But… smaller could sometimes mean greater…. Just a very personal ceremony between the two of you; an invisible photographer, a ceremonial speaker who goes along with your feelings, and a wedding planner who ensures that you can say the ultimate yes-word in the most remote, breathtaking or secluded place. All this will guarantee unique images and moments that you will cherish your entire life together. It surely is different, but isn’t your love as well? Let’s create magic!

Every milestone, every event in our lives deserves extra attention and a bit of glitter and glamour. There are moments in life on which each of us deserves to take centre stage, each of us deserves that moment in the spotlights, during a memorable event that we planned ourselves or that others surprised us with. I just love to magic up these milestones and gorgeous events into an unforgettable feast for everybody and to have you and your guests enjoy each other’s company, the partying, eating and drinking together, enjoying it all. Let’s celebrate!

On reconnoitring a new location or when traveling through Belgium, France or Italy, I always keep my eyes wide open for details in the surroundings, in materials, in nature. All this must be a source of inspiration for your wedding or event. By using all the beauty that surrounds us, I give your wedding that extra personal touch that typifies you! Together, we discover your style and theme that will be the central thread in the fabric of your wedding or event, making all your dreams come true. Let’s create beauty!

A country does not need to be big or exotic to be great. In my home country, Belgium, one can travel for weeks on and drop from the one surprise into the other. Choose from one of our many castles amidst the forests, at the waterfront or close to a town, and I can magic your wedding into a fairy tale with eye for every detail. We boast not only an abundance of castles, but also farmhouses, stately homes, villa’s, greenhouses and deconsecrated churches, all to be found on my long list of incredible possibilities. Let yourself be enthralled by Belgium’s beauty!

My heart belongs to my home county, but long ago I started a special affair with Italy. It is a county full of contradictions where north and south are often each other’s opposites, but still have much in common: their love for culture and history, for their refined cuisine and their heavenly wines. A wedding in Italy is not just a marriage: it is a total experience. I passionately escort you on a culinary and historic discovery tour through La Bella Italia that will be the starting point of your life-long voyage together. That’s amore!

Paris is always a good idea…and so is France, and what more can I say? I always had deep feelings for our southern neighbours, for their art, culture and savoir-vivre; for their romantic cities highlighted by stately architecture or for their picturesque villages with their typical petite squares. Close your eyes and drift away. Image yourself in a vineyard or a lavender field where blankets are laid out offering picnic baskets… On opening the basket, you find baguettes, local cheeses and a bottle of wine supplied by the local vintner. THE perfect start of a perfect weekend for the two of you and your guests! La vie est belle!

frequently asked

what's the first step?

Firstly, we will get to know each other!

Following a first meeting, I plan a personal chat at the office so that I can learn about your wishes and your dreams. Then I draw up an offer. After my services are confirmed, we set out on the voyage together. A trip of a few weeks, months or years toward your marriage or event. If distance stands in the way of a personal meeting in my office, we can discuss things via Skype, WhatsApp or FaceTime.

frequently asked

how much am i involved?

In how far are we involved in the preparations and can we decide on the styling? A question I often have to answer. Your marriage must mirror your character and personality. I will make suggestions that you can agree with or not. And we proceed from there.

frequently asked

what will this cost me?

Every wedding is different. I design weddings made-to-measure. The price as well is customised. I go for transparency in whatever I do: pricing and communication. The quoted price will not change, except of course if you demand extreme changes or change ideas altogether.
