One of my favourite quotes: "People won't remember what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel." 


My name is Tissy, I am a thirty something Dutch living in Italy with my Italian husband and our two year old daughter. I founded The Elite Group in 2015, when I was living in Dubai, out of my passion for hospitality and celebrating life with good food, a glass of bubbles and in great company. I love traveling and discovering new places, I have a strong visual and story telling mind and I need to stay creative to express myself.

I found love in Dubai, with an Italian, engineer from Puglia. It was after planning and designing our own dream wedding in a beautiful Masseria in Puglia, that I discovered wedding planning was the missing piece to add to our services.

I have worked in hospitality from a young age, next to my PR & Communications Studies. I worked from cozy restaurants to fancy galas and ended up having renowned 5* hotels as clients in Dubai. I even worked as an airhostess for Emirates Airlines for a while. All of this experience has thought me one important thing: connection is key for quality service.

That is why I am looking forward to getting to know you! Because I can only help you create your dream wedding or event if I get to know you better. If I can learn how you like to spend your time, what your favourites are and where your happy place is, only then I can truly connect with you and become your trusted friend and advisor. This will allow us to create something outstanding together - a life celebration that's all about you and the people you love the most!
