Meet The Team

Marie-Laure Giacomelli

founder & head planner

Hello, I’m Marie-Laure Giacomelli, the founder of Kiss & Toast. I have been making dreams come true since 2014. My journey began with a love for the vibrant cultures of France and Italy, and a dedication to understanding what couples truly desire for their special day.

I have worked in some of the most prestigious places in the world, like Cheval Blanc Courchevel and Château de Bagnols and I bring that experience and my love for detail into every wedding I plan.

I started Giacomelli Weddings in 2017 as an entrepreneur to plan destination weddings in France and Italy for international couples. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to win some fantastic awards and get featured in top wedding blogs like Style Me Pretty.

In 2022, I decided it was time to shift and grow so my small business turned into a company, ‘By Giacomelli’ with the idea of showcasing two distinct brands:

  • Giacomelli Weddings: Since 2017. This is where I offer traditional wedding planning, always focusing on high-end, personal experiences.
  • Kiss & Toast: Launched in 2023 ! I created this brand to help couples who dream of a perfect destination wedding and need a clear project from the start. Here, I offer wedding collections with a personal touch and main wedding services . The idea of Kiss and Toast was born end of 2022 and I am so proud to see it come to life. It was initiated by my clients as I realised some of them felt overwhelmed by all the choices out there and preferred a streamline approach. 

But I’m not just about planning. I also teach at EFMM, helping to train the next generation of wedding planners and celebrants.

What sets Kiss & Toast apart? We offer the best of both worlds – the structure of all-inclusive wedding packages with the flexibility of custom wedding planning.

At Kiss & Toast, we believe that every couple deserves a wedding that is as unique and special as their love story. We are committed to providing a seamless, joyful, and authentic wedding planning experience, filled with elegance and personal touches that reflect your individual style.

I absolutely love what I do. It’s not just about the weddings. It’s about building relationships with my clients and being part of such a special day in their lives. Every time I see the joy on a couple’s faces when they see their wedding come together, I fall in love with my job all over again.
