IN A NUTSHELL…
I’m Zuza (Zhuzha), the woman behind Whole Lotta Love Weddings. A self-confessed rule-breaker, here to inject some (much needed) colour into the all-white world of traditional weddings.
I live in SW London, in a house full of retro finds, with my best dancer husband, 3 gorgeous mini dudes, and our beloved dog Ziggy Stardust.
Originally from Croatia, I found my home in London 20 odd years ago, while exploring and trying to figure out where to direct my passion and creativity.
I was drawn to the buzzy and creative world of advertising, where I got some serious training in logistics and what works visually. This is where I met and eventually got together with my now husband Paul (after discovering we moved in the same clubbing circles and seeing him bust some serious moves on the dancefloor!).
After having our babies, the long hours of the advertising world didn’t suit my life any longer, so, I did a 360 and looked to reinvent myself all over again and do what makes me happy. And here I am doing what I feel I was meant to be doing all along - my dream job, designing, styling, and planning cool AF weddings. Making dreams come true and feeling like a lucky diamond doing it.
WHAT ROCKS MY BOAT?
Mid-century interior, architecture, art, design, and of course music are my passions. It is where I draw my inspiration from. All that is iconic 70s retro full of colour and maximalism clearly reflects in my work.
If you are a fellow rule-breaker looking for a wedding stylist and planner to help you create something truly unique, you are in the right place. I will guide you, advise you, design with you, and get you the best-suited suppliers to realise your wedding dream. You will LOVE the whole wedding planning process from start to finish.

WHAT OTHERS THINK ABOUT ME?
I truly cannot put into words how INCREDIBLE Zuza is. She was the fabulous fairy Godmother of our wedding. Hands down the most organised, creative person, she knew what we needed before we knew what we needed. Her design skills are second to none and we couldn’t have loved our wedding design more. She listened to everything we were thinking and created something beyond our wildest imaginings. When it came to organisation, she took all the stress out of planning and logistics. All we had to do was show up and enjoy our perfectly planned day. We really can’t recommend her highly enough. She has the most fabulous network of vendors she works with who all absolutely nailed her brief and vision. All her hard work meant that our wedding day was seamless and spectacular. She is one of a kind!
