WHY I DID WHAT I DO?
I am Nicki, I am from Germany and 6 years ago I moved to the beautiful Netherlands. I live with my family close to Gouda! I speak 5 languages (EN, DE, NL, ES, PT) and love different cultures and traditions. I was born and raised in South Germany, in Stuttgart and I do have brazilian roots, my Mother is from Rio de Janeiro.
I started my working career in the hospitality. I was working many years in Hotels, and learned a lot about events. Later on I became a Hotel Manager and was working also in wedding venues, there I collected a lot of experience in the wedding industry, with planning, executing and organising weddings. I had always an eye for the details, the organization behind the show and my strength was to keep all together. Accompany the nervous groom and have a holding hand for the beautiful bride to walk the stairs in her gorgous bridal gown, I always loved to do. After I moved to the Netherlands, I worked in a luxury Travel agency, which among other, also planned Honeymoons in Down Under. So left or right, the wedding industry never let me go and I was always inspired and captivated by it.
Really quickly I figured out, that I am really good in managing chaos and trouble situations. Is it busy and everything seems messy? Then I am in my best surrounding, I act fast, I am a leader, and able to take decisions which feel uncomfortable sometimes. If waiters are running around and are stressed from the workload? I grab a tray and help out! I calm down the team and prioritize what are the most important steps to get back on track with the timeline. I will ensure, that everything goes like planned, and if there are surprises or unexpected developements, I will make sure that it will be fine and quickly solved.
After so much experience I gained in the wedding industry I concluded that this is my way. Its my passion and it makes me so happy to make you happy. To plan, to organize, to monitor and to witness all those beautiful love stories, always touches me, it is my purest happiness to accompany couples on this great journey. So I started Planning by Nicki in 2022 and could not be happier with this decision. They say when you love what you do, you will not work one day anymore - and this is true! I found myself, my path and my talents. I can help you to make your dream day to come true! Do you want to enjoy the preparations and trust a professional to take care of all organisational processes then we should meet and get in touch! Do you want somebody that gives 200% for your dream and is dedicated to weddings?
I'm looking forward to help and support you to make your happiest day come true.
