A Passion for Extraordinary Celebrations that will become a once in a lifetime
At The Elite Group - Weddings & Events, we are passionate about crafting extraordinary celebrations that go beyond expectations. Founded by an international, Dutch owner who is deeply connected to Italy's customs and culture (married and living in Italy with her Dutch/Italian family), we bring together over 15 years of hospitality experience, a strong eye for detail, and a commitment to creating authentic, heartfelt experiences in a country that never seizes to charm
Depending of the size of each wedding we put together a minimum team of two or more planners and assistants to make sure the execution goes as smooth as the way we planned it. We work with a team of professionals and freelancers that are introduced to you and properly briefed before your wedding day. Or at times you will have one of our assistant planners assist you earlier on in the planning process.
Our team is carefully selected on their creativity, work ethitic and service orientation. We believe in a strong team spirit and complementing each others strength and weaknesses..
But above all fun they are great fun to work with and ready to make your day or weekend unforgettable!
With our extensive knowledge of Italian destinations and access to the finest local suppliers, we ensure a seamless planning process and flawless execution. Our personalised approach means that we take the time to understand your vision, style, and preferences, creating a celebration that reflects your unique personalities.

Ciao! My name is Tissy, I am a thirty something Dutch living in Milan with my Italian husband and our two little ones. 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 have worked in hospitality from a young age, next to my PR & Communications Studies. From waiting in restaurants to hosting galas in Amsterdam - at the royal palace - to flying around the world as a cabin crew for Emirates Airlines. To end up, starting my own events business and having renowned 5* hotels as clients in Dubai, from the Four Seasons to the Ritz Carlton and Waldorf Astoria. All before landing in Italy which we made into our current family home.
The most important lesson all of this experience has taught me? Connection and caring are key for quality service. Whether we are entertaining guests at home or at any event I plan and organise I always love to make my guests feel comfortable, at ease and well taken care of!
