With over 25 years in fashion consultancy for international luxury brands, Italian-born Patrizia Ermetici joined the Spanish luxury wedding planning company, Joan Estrada Special Weddings, in Barcelona in 2016.
"Partnering with clients to turn their dreams into reality, I listen carefully and skilfully, then empathetically respond. My finger is always on the pulse of the latest trends in food, décor and entertainment, constantly focusing on the personalized details that make an event one-of-a-kind," says Patrizia Ermetici about her passion for wedding planning.
An innate sense of style and ability to translate concepts into reality has elevated Joan Estrada Special Weddings to the top of their field. Combining wide knowledge with an extraordinary commitment to excellence, the company has a unique ability to create completely personalized, unforgettable events with refinement and great taste.
