I'm Zuza, the planner behind Whole Lotta Love Weddings
Me 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.
My love of London (and all things retro!)
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.
My journey into the world of wedding planning
After my studies 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 is boldly reflected 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 wedding suppliers to realise your dream. You will LOVE the whole wedding planning process from start to finish.
Are we a perfect match?
Here at Whole Lotta Love Weddings we believe all our weddings should uniquely represent each couple we work with.
Our CORE VELUES are:
Integrity & Honesty
Fun (always fun!)
Our ideal clients are those who put the look and vibe at the top of their wedding planning list, still using the traditional wedding template, but adding their own unconventional twist to it.
Our couples are fun, retro colour-loving, design led people looking for guidance on how to achieve the look and feel of their special day.
We support them by working closely with them on every design aspect, recommending the best suited suppliers, giving endless expert advice on execution, including budget and time saving tips, and magically transforming their venue into the rockstar party space they always dreamed of.
Our responsibility to clients goes all the way by giving them our undivided attention. We work closely with our suppliers to bring all the elements of the day together carefully, making sure everything is done right and nothing has been missed.
We pride ourselves in being loyal, honest, and reliable to our couples and to our suppliers.
