Bonjour, nice to e-meet you!
This is not just a job for me, it is my passion. Once you become a client, it’s the beginning of a lovely friendship.
I'm Fiona SAND
Founder and creative director of Héra et Lutèce
Born in Paris in August 1983, from a Cameroonian mother and a British father.
My nickname is “Code Quantum”, because I am an math and quantitative finance engineer lover of the Arts and History. And, while working as a trader for CIB for 7 years, I was organizing and decorating private events.
Naturally in May 2010, wedding planning and design has become my profession of heart.
In September 2014, I married my Normandy partner in crime. And we are blessed since January 2021 with a charming full of life baby boy.
Methodical, creative and dynamic, above all I am pragmatic perfectionist.
Each project is a new creation for and with my clients, whom I love to surprise with my ideas. I want my clients to dare their own style. That is why everything I do is 100% sur mesure for them.
Why do I love my job? The self-fulfillment in achieving and realizing their desires. To weave high quality design elements into experiences that feel comforting and reflect a shining sense of hospitality.
My role is to be your new confidante to create an effortless experience for beautiful and unforgettable moments.

I can't even put into words how much I appreciate Fiona & all that she did for us. Throughout the planning process Fiona was efficient, communicative, transparent, and turned our vision into a reality. She was flexible with our schedule and never missed a beat. She took care of everything with our vendors, negotiated for us, and took care of every detail. She found every single vendor we used from photographers, make-up, rentals, etc. and we were so happy with them all.
But it's the little things that I will always remember Fiona for. Like how she walked from our hotel to the venue just so she really knew that I'd be able to do it on the day of in my wedding shoes. How she would remember little things mentioned in passing months before. That she always had a hello and a smile for our daughter. How great she was with all of our parents on the day of, and made sure everyone had everything they needed.
Choosing a wedding planner is such an important thing, especially when you are getting married halfway across the world in a country where you don't speak the language! Fiona made it easy. Thank you so much Fiona!
