Meet Julie

Hailing from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and named after the legendary Julie Andrews, Julie Hope Girgenti has always prided herself on her creativity, theatricality and extraordinary organisational skills.

With a BA in Dance from Muhlenberg College in the USA and an MFA in Choreography from Roehampton University in London, Julie’s higher education focused on experiential craftsmanship and expanding her exquisitely detailed artistic skills.

From the perspective of a choreographer, creating an incredible event experience requires artistry, spatial understanding and awareness, a significant amount of planning and coordination, discipline and practice, patience, budget and timeline management and – in order to create something truly amazing and memorable – it requires people skills. I enjoy working with a variety of people who are as devoted to high quality, memorable experiences as I am.

What sets Exceptional Events apart from other Luxury Event Planners?

What sets Exceptional Events apart from other Luxury Event Planners is actually my personal background and approach. I was an award-winning choreographer when I first moved to the UK, before coming to the realisation that I can offer the world so much more as a Luxury event planner.

As both a choreographer and an event planner, I have always been inspired by Sergei Diaghilev of the Ballet Russe. He was an extraordinary Russian choreographer based in Paris at the beginning of the 20th century who would bring together the finest dancers, artists, fashion designers and craftsmen of his time to collaborate and build every incredible dance piece he made for the Ballet Russe. For my clients today, this translates into what I believe is a particularly unique approach to Luxury event planning.

I begin each project working on my own to develop the core concept for every event. I approach every brief with the same creative enthusiasm and artistic eye that I would approach a new dance piece. Then, I bring in the best of the best to collaborate, inspire and collectively build the greatest event possible for each individual client. On behalf of my clients, I commission the greatest artists and experts in their respective fields (from photographers, caterers and fashion designers to travel agents and production companies), all of whom set out to contribute their own brand of brilliance to the final outcome – which will become your Exceptional Event.

Through Exceptional Events, I strive to amaze people with the beauty of all that is possible and to bring this beauty to life in a way that will light people up, whether they’re there to experience it first hand or not.

I offer my clients the opportunity to commission a reliable, trustworthy, dedicated and quality-devoted planner whose mission it is to ensure that they enjoy a remarkably easy and Luxurious planning process that results in an exceptional and boast-worthy event.

My aim is to be the best provider of Once In A Lifetime Luxury Experiences in the world.

If you can dream it, you can do it. – Walt Disney
