About us

Caelia events are exceptional and exuberant celebrations to be remembered for years to come.

Be it creative or logistical, we will fine tune every single detail to create your perfect event.

As an international event company, we create magic with our work. Our positive, can-do attitude and people-focussed ethos shines through in everything we do, and the excellent relationship we build with all of our clients invests us in their story, which is what gives that intangible extra spark to every single Caelia event.

Our story

Elaine founded the company in 2011 (then as A Spanish Do) and Lauren joined 3 years later. Fusing our backgrounds in the high paced sectors of hospitality, tourism and fashion, we quickly carved out our niche as the go-to event planners in Spain for high profile international clients seeking exclusive events with a unique twist. As business partners and event planners, we have the perfect balance of skills and experience in different fields. The definition of a multiskilled team. 

With our combination of creativity and business acumen, languages, and sourcing and negotiation skills, we tick all of the essential boxes for the execution of flawless world class events.
