Mindfully curated soirees, weddings, and private parties characterised by refinement and hospitality.

Wedding event planner based in Lisbon, Portugal planning festivities across Europe

When Jasmine Lazzari founded The Wedding Co. in 2007, she was the first independent destination wedding planner in Lisbon. Over fifteen years later, she is known today as an originator in the Portugal wedding market and across mainland Europe. With a background in luxury PR for distinguished clients such as Cartier and Hermès before founding her company, Jasmine brings an elevated approach to each event and a singular approach to hospitality.

Born in Italy, raised in London, and residing in Portugal, Jasmine’s background plays an important role in her taste, style, and approach to event planning and design. The daughter of an Italian father and Spanish mother, she has always had an appreciation for the distinct cultures, languages, and heritage of Europe. As a child, she studied classical piano and violin, aspiring to become an orchestral conductor or theatre actor. With a simultaneous passion for the arts, she studied English literature at university.

Fluent in English, Portuguese, and Italian, Jasmine is well-travelled and versed in helping globally-based clients navigate planning destination events abroad. With a European approach and an eye to American nuances, Jasmine confidently plans weddings and events inspired by vibrant local customs but rooted in each clients’ distinct style and story.
