My name is Mélissa Wilpotte and I am a destination wedding planner, based in Bordeaux, France. I launched my wedding and event planning company in 2017, after working for many years in senior management at some of France’s top event industry companies. 

Optimistic and determined by nature, I have always overcome obstacles with a positive attitude. Combining my skills in tourism, administration and my taste for sophisticated details, I believe my agency to be well framed as it matches my core values.

My passion for well-planned situations, the to-do lists I put in place at work and in life, as well as my desire to bespoke your wedding enable me to create a wonderful experience for your very own magical day. My love for travelling, discovering foreign cultures and meeting different couples with their own personalities and enriching life paths push me towards excellence. 

I am also the proud mother of a beautiful duo, two children who bring the best of me. I wish to show them how important it is to work with passion and determination. I believe this enables me to achieve a result that surpasses my clients’ expectations.

Setting the right example for my children remains a concrete objective as an entrepreneurial mother, as well as making my family proud, to whom I attach great importance. Showing that a profession initially based on the love of two people can lead to the creation of an agency that is now fulfilling and valued by its peers is the greatest reward that can be. 

These few aspects have made me sincere, authentic and faithful to my values and my surroundings.



All the beautiful material and immaterial things, the kind gestures and the beautiful adventures make my eyes sparkle. Marriage is such a wonderful adventure! I am an optimistic and determined person, I don’t give up when an obstacle shows up on my way.

I immerse myself in the elements and opinions the engaged couple give me, I get under the skin of a Wedding Planner each time my clients have a new demand, in order to make a unique and personalized moment for their big day.

I surround myself with the best service providers who know how to highlight the wedding projects I present. We work hand in hand to make the ceremony even more beautiful than you would have dreamed of.


My agency is based in Bordeaux but I can move anywhere, as long as love needs me. I’m fond of the beautiful Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, which offers a remarkable choice of wonderful wedding reception locations.


With me by your side to oversee everything, you can relax and get married in peace. All the things you consider to be obligations in your wedding organisation are the key elements of my job, and I love dealing with them !

As early as the beginning of our partnership, you’ll see how much I like the “Wahoo” effect in your eyes. I’m looking for chic, class, glamour and romanticism, where guests and the newly weds sparkle with joy of course.


The sun
Family meetings
Sport, dancing
Films that make me cry
My children’s smiles
The satisfaction of a well-done job


The rain
The smell of bananas
Being wrong
Artificial flowers
When my phone’s battery dies
