    Rugie Wurie

    Rugiatu Wurie Lamin is the founder and Director of Mrs Wedding Planner Limited.

    To date, Rugie has planned and designed over 53 international weddings/events across 11 different cities, 8 countries , 4 continents and for 10 different nationalities including English, German, Sierra Leonean, Nigerian, Ghanaian, Italian, Norwegian, Antiguan, Jamaican and Congolese. She continues to challenge herself as she takes on different styles of wedding/event locations including Palais Namaskar in Marrakech, Hofburg in Vienna, The Dorchester, Langham, Lanesborough in London, Melia in Zanzibar, Jnane Tamsna, Hideaway of Nungwi and is currently curating weddings in Italy, Dubai, The Savoy and Palais Estoi in Faro.

    Her client list includes politicians, sporting, fashion and business personalities as well as high level international professionals. Such diversified clientele has earned her recognition with Refinery 29, British Vogue, Aljazeera and Marks and Spencer. In 2015, Mrs Wedding Planner Limited was awarded Destination wedding Planner of the year by the respected Wedding Industry award. We have had speaking opportunities at the Peninsular Hotel in Paris on issues regarding luxury wedding planning in an international environment and Global Women conference in London.

    The same courage it took to start Mrs Wedding Planner limited is the same that has compelled her to action another project- our very first workshop to empower business aspirants…but I started out just like you, filled with self doubt, uninspired, deflated, and constantly worried about what people would think if I fail.

    Rugie has a degree in French and Spanish and speaks 3 languages.
