We have to click!
Wedding planner Petra Starbek likes to ask her couples: “Why do I want to chat with you in person or over a video call before we decide to work together?”
“It’s simple. We have to click – it’s essential. Weddings are an incredibly personal event. Having a video call or coffee together is really important so we can get to know more about each other and get a feel for whether we click. Most importantly, we’ll also have a chance to discuss all your wedding ideas. I work really closely with my couples, so it’s all about opening up to one each other in an atmosphere of trust and respect.”
This is your journey into what should be a fun, relaxing, and stress-free experience – something you’ll never forget that will also put an endless smile on my face. As your wedding planner and partner throughout the entire process, I’ll be there to take care of everything for you. From organizing the rooms your guests will sleep in, to selecting the suppliers that perfectly match your vision and helping the development of a mouthwatering wedding breakfast menu, I’ll assist with every aspect of your celebration. And you? Knowing I have everything under control, you’ll be free to focus on all the fun parts of your wedding planning with myself and my expert team by your side.
“Every detail, every flower, and every supplier will be carefully selected to guarantee you have the wedding you want and a spectacular event you and your partner will fall in love with.”
I’m a Lake Bled Wedding Planner Petra Starbek
…at the moment I’m just a face on the internet and a voice on the phone…
I live and breathe weddings. From red carpet-ready dresses to breathtakingly romantic events and the never-ending magic that is Lake Bled – I do what I love and I love what I do.
Since starting Storija Weddings back in 2008, it fills me with pride to say I’ve run my wedding business deliberately and wholeheartedly, every single day since that first day. It’s not always a smooth ride but I believe things that are worth having don’t come easy and we have to fight hardest for the things we’ve built against the toughest of odds. Finding the wedding planner who is right for you is so important – someone you like, trust, and can’t wait to speak to about your latest idea. If you’re looking for a wedding planner with a big smile and heart, a great sense of humor, and a friend you can trust – I’m right here. I’ll be there on your wedding day, dressed in a pretty black dress to blend in. During the planning, I’ll always be available to talk about your wedding plans, be your shopping buddy for another wedding-related shopping trip, and even be a shoulder to cry on any time you need one.
…during the wedding planning, we will become friends…
I work hard for my couples and suppliers because every wedding is personally special to me. You and your partner will always be at the forefront of my mind and my colleagues and industry contacts are like family to me. I will never knowingly give less than my best and I take pride in everything I put my name to – regardless of who is watching.
“My promise to you is that I will always care about your wedding as much as you do and remind you just how special all of this is. I will treat you as a member of my family on a Christmas.”
Couples & Lake Bled Weddings Planner
“We had a two day multi-cultural wedding in Slovenia and Petra is the reason that this was possible. Since we don’t live in Slovenia we literally could not have done it without her. She has all the best qualities that one could hope for – fun to work with, creative, proactive, organised, kind and gives you a feeling that nothing is impossible. She will not only be your wedding planner but also your friend. Her knowledge of wedding logistics and trusted vendors is amazing. She has recommendations for florists, photographers, bands, stationers, catering, cake providers, furniture hire, entertainment, you name it. She often suggested additions which in the end were crucial to the easy-going flow of events but at the same time she also respected the wedding budget and never pushed into something fancier than we wanted. On our wedding day we basically just had fun and did not have to think about anything else. Many guests told is that the wedding was flawless, relaxed, and fun. We are so grateful to you Petra. Thank you!”

If you’re looking for a great, professional and friendly wedding planner we would 100% recommend Petra Starbek.
Petra did and amazing job, we couldn’t have done it without her. We are so grateful to her! We had an amazing wedding, the location, atmosphere, and all the venues were just perfect. We liked how Petra takes her time to listen to our wishes and then comes with additional ideas or things we forgot in the first place. Petra has a very nice way of open communication, she gives great recommendations and advice but let’s the final decision to the wedding couple. We had to plan our Slovenian wedding from the United States, which isn’t easy, but thanks to Petra we where able to get all the perfect venues; photographer, florist, locations and even the cake was exactly the way we had in mind. We wish Petra good luck with future weddings, we hope she can do for many other couples what you did for us.

“When my husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in Slovenia, we picked Petra as our wedding planner due to her impressive credentials and radiating personality that she displayed in our introductory meeting. We had both been to Slovenia before, but we knew nothing about the wedding industry there, how things are planned, or what vendors to book. Petra’s recommendations for vendors and the venue proved to be exactly what we were looking for. It was one of the best days of my life, and Petra played a huge part in making it happen. While there was anxiety involved leading up to the event, on the day of the wedding everything came together perfectly. Petra was there with us to coordinate and she was always there when we needed her.
Every time I thought I needed her for something on our wedding day, she would somehow magically appear right there where you are needed to fix something, get the schedule back on track with dinner, take care of the presents, take care of the vendors. I mean, what is there to say other than – multitasking is definitely one of hers talents :))
The day could not have been more perfect, and you played a huge part in making it happen. All of our friends and family had an amazing time, the two of us had an amazing time, and we wanted to wholeheartedly thank you for being there with us and for us. It was a perfect day. Thank you, Petra!”
