Maja von Schmeling – Germany

Founder, Oui Weddings

Maja von Schmeling has been fascinated with different cultures and languages from a very small age. Luckily she was able to work in Public Relations in the hospitality industry in various countries following her Master degree in Marketing in Miami. Her start as a wedding planner happened by “accident” as a Miami based wedding agency hired her to set up a new wedding concept for various hotels in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. When returning to her hometown of Munich after 6 years abroad, she worked for one of the most sought after catering companies in Germany, organizing some of the most exquisite weddings in Europe, including a royal wedding. Five years ago she decided to follow her dream of her own wedding agency in Munich. Throughout the years her main focus has become destination weddings. Her ability to communicate with vendors and clients alike in 4 different languages, as well as her insight into the hotel industry has made her one of a few destination wedding experts in Germany. She specializes in individual and luxurious destination weddings where not only the wedding but also the guests’ needs in terms of travel and accommodation are perfectly organized. Maja loves bridal couples who think outside the box, seeking a creative, unique and highly personalized wedding. Only the love that is put into every detail will make the difference between an ordinary event and a soul touching wedding that neither the bride and groom nor any guest will ever forget.
