“The philosophy of the company is that long before the celebration, our clients would have been dreaming and weaving stories around that very special day and it is our job is to discern and draw out the secret pleasures that our clients have always wanted but never had the resources, contacts or confidence to celebrate, and translate them into a breath-taking event,” says Olusanya, the founder and CEO of Once Upon a Destination.
Seyi Olusanya is recognised as one of the world’s most inspirational and creative wedding professionals. She has many years experience in the luxury weddings, events and travel industry. Also the founder of the longstanding Cedar Events business which was awarded ‘Most Inspirational Wedding Supplier’ by Ice The Cake in 2011, Seyi boasts a discerning client base and relationships within some of the world’s most prestigious destinations, including Harrods, Claridges Hotel in London, The Address in Dubai, and the Sheraton in Gambia, to name but a few.
At Once Upon A Destination the clients’ stories of life, achievement and love are the defining moments which inspire Seyi and her team of experts to create events that are truly tailored to the individual shaped by their expectations. It is this emotional connection that makes every event planned by Once Upon A Destination a truly unique experience.
