Destination weddings and events are what dreams and memories are made of – stunning landscapes, smiling guests and glorious sunshine. And when it comes to in-demand destinations, Ibiza shines like the jewel in the crown of the Mediterranean, attracting discerning brands, businesses, couples and individuals from across the globe to celebrate on its shores. Bringing their visions to life is dedicated Ibiza event planner Johanna Carlsson, founder of JC Bespoke Events and the creative mind behind many of the island’s most sophisticated and timeless events.
Beyond her cool and calm demeanour is confidence gleaned over more than a decade of experience. Combined with an innate sense of perfectionism and a passion for organisation, Johanna works from both the head and the heart – a dream combination for anyone seeking an event planner in Ibiza. Alongside her hand-picked team, she works closely with clients to design their perfect experience – from the very first moodboards until the last guest has gone home, JC Bespoke Events are by your side.
Born in Sweden, raised in Belgium and educated in London, multi-lingual Johanna is as much a citizen of the world as her international client base. After establishing her career in events management in London, moving to Ibiza was a logical progression – the combination of beautiful landscapes, stunning venues, a warm climate and cosmopolitan clients is an event planner’s dream come true. Johanna quickly became Head of Events for the island’s premier concierge and event agency – a role she held for ten years – and in 2021, JC Bespoke Events was born.
The process of planning an event in Ibiza with JC Bespoke Events starts with a personal consultation with Johanna, to get to know each other and understand what it is you’re hoping to create. Whether it’s an intimate wedding for 20 people, an OTT celebration for 350 guests, a corporate incentive trip or a brand activation, Johanna draws on her intuition, professionalism and experience to reach for the stars. There’s no detail too small and no challenge she can’t rise to when it comes to creative event production.
Finding the right venue – whether overlooking crystalline waters, in the rustic countryside or the romantic old town, in a contemporary villa or high-end restaurant – is always the first port of call for JC Bespoke Events. From here, anything and everything is possible with Johanna’s extensive contact list, from wedding websites to invitations, art direction and decoration, flower arrangements, menu curation, entertainment and much more, plus all the behind-the-scenes production needed to make it happen.
These days, destination weddings go beyond just the big day, incorporating pre-event cocktail parties, post-wedding brunches, pool parties, boat days and more, so Johanna limits the number of events JC Bespoke Events accepts each year to ensure her clients receive maximum personal attention. For Johanna, the most rewarding element of her work is the relationships she builds with her clients. Quite often, the initial event is just the start of a long-lasting connection, as she goes on to plan many other significant events in their lives – a reflection of her well-deserved reputation as a truly exceptional Ibiza event planner.
