Fanny Staaf Pagerup

Founder, CEO & Creative Director

Driven by a strong passion for planning and organization, coupled with extensive experience gained from working with top-tier wedding and event planners in Australia and New York, Fanny established Fanny Staaf Events in 2016. Today, the company proudly stands as Avení Events, reflecting the future of weddings and events.

Fanny's upbringing in the flower industry, where she was surrounded by creative, hard-working people and delighted customers, created the foundation of her creativity and love for flowers and design. Dreaming of a career that could merge her passions, she found her calling in the wedding and events industry. Pursuing her aspirations, she enrolled in the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, earning diplomas in both wedding planning and event design.

Fanny possesses a distinct talent for crafting exceptional floral and event designs, infusing each project with an added touch of elegance and luxury. With a portfolio boasting over 100 successfully executed weddings, Fanny seamlessly combines her organizational skills, keen eye for detail, explicit designs, and floristry expertise to curate the extraordinary.

Apart from her devotion to Avení Events, Fanny thrives on planning her next adventure around the world, adorning her home with enchanting bouquets, or trying out new restaurants in town.
