Events designed with Love



Your wedding day is the day to live it your way.

Etica Events is a wedding planning boutique specializing in unique high-end weddings in Ecuador, since 2010.  It is a stress-free approach to your destination wedding preparations. We believe in custom-tailored everything. All elements should represent you as a couple and should represent your unique personalities.

From selecting Ecuador’s finest wedding vendors to simply sitting down with you over a glass of wine to hear your story, we strive to be there at every corner, every step of the way. We make sure that you and your guests fully enjoy the day while we take care of a thousand and one details.



My name is Assyah and I’m the wedding designer and stylist behind Etica Events. A happy wife, mom of one lovely little boy, and an entrepreneur since childhood with a love for all things beautiful and original. I believe a wedding is not only about the design, but it is celebration of a new life as a family; the atmosphere on that day should make you feel confident and happy and represent your vision of life. My clients hire me to design unique celebrations, create custom crafted elements and unique designs that represent who they truly are.

I changed my career in International Relations because I was always asked to craft favours or decorate spaces by the people I know, and I really enjoyed doing it! After my own wedding in 2008, I planned to change my company name and services and Etica Events was born in 2010. Dozens of events later, I am still just as passionate and inspired as I was 5 years ago. In my spare time, you will find me laughing, cooking, doing yoga, running or at the gym. I love to spend time with my family and we often leave the town for a week-end all together. I love to travel. When I have time, I (really) enjoy a cup of tea with a good British mystery book! Obsessed by all beautiful things; I am also obsessed with nature and its colours. I just love rainy days. I love the colour green, to eat pistachio macaroons, I am (always) trying to quit coffee (mostly expressos). I enjoy meeting with my long-distance friends, sit and eat bread, French cheese with a glass of organic wine. I can’t wait to meet you!

I am a former Tourism & Environmental management Engineer from Quito with a wife whose nationality and studies has moved us to France, England and now back to Ecuador.

I design brochures, invitations, menus and everything that has to do with your wedding (I also designed this website). My love affair with events didn’t start with a party, but with my wife.

Her passion for events is so unique that it became contagious, and I am honoured to be a part of every single one of them. I truly believe in love, family, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. I enjoy sports a lot, Mix Martial Arts, soccer are my favourites and I normally practice every day.  I love to travel as well.

The groom is often overlooked in the planning and design process, and it’s my job to make the wedding as terrific and personalized for you as it is for your future-wife. I’ll be pinning your boutonnière just right, and coming to the rescue when your groomsman forgets his dress socks. Hope we will work with you soon!
