- Location The Hague
My name is Beatrice Betley. And, I too, had an international wedding 7 years ago. I was born in Germany and moved to the Netherlands in 1976. After I studied and graduated in Germany (Fashiondesign) and Italy (Fashion & Interior Design) I came back to the Netherlands in the late 1990's. So you could say I am an Expat as well as a local!I worked as a Visual Merchandising Manager, responsible for the 400+ Pan-European stores of a global footwear retailer. I had my own Interior Design agency and have worked for many years in Global Sourcing and Procurement in the fresh produce industry collaborating closely with people from countries as far as Chile and Peru to India and New Zealand.As a Wedding Planner and Wedding Designer I have just attended the first ever EPIC workshop in London, headed by leading wedding Designers Sarah Haywood, Marcy Blum and Diane Khoury. I am proud to be a founding member of the Event Planners International Collaborative.
