UK & France
Well-known for her knowledge and expertise, Chloé Atlan, 39, brings 19 years of experience to her co-founded company, Aava.
As a distinguished events planner, Chloé is fluent in French and English.
She specialises in organising exceptionally high quality events, with the majority of her clients coming from the UAE, UK & USA.
Having been brought up on the French Riviera, she holds great affection for her region and is well acquainted with all it has to offer. Chloé graduated from University in Nice with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication. Following this, she interned for a well-renowned events company, based in Monaco, going on to be the company’s youngest Marketing Director.
In 2002, she decided to start her own company with her mother Carole Sebban, co-founding the very first wedding planning company in France.
The co-founding of the company in 2002 coincided with the date of her own wedding, which while being a challenge, gave her a unique insight in to bridal expectations as well as the anxieties that naturally arise before the big day.
Now, 17 years later and a mother of 3 children, Chloé is an expert in creating beautiful celebrations that reflect the individuals’ involved, where no detail is too small, and no task too big. The overarching theme of each event she creates is elegance, sophistication and exclusivity.
Solicitous over the necessity to pass down her knowledge to the new generation, she’s also teaching in French University (Bachelor degree in Events management). She has been too selected as an Industry expert and a jury member to a famous international wedding planning conference that took place in November 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.
Beginning 2019, she has been awarded by DWP Congress (Destination Wedding Planners) in Dubai as the best wedding planner.

Ten years later as CEO of the Academy of Wedding and Event Planning she manages 6 regional virtual campuses across Australia, New Zealand, the UK, UAE, South East Asia and North America. Through the Academy she has helped launch the careers of over 3,500 wedding professionals and is a business expert for the industry.
