~ Editor-in-Chief ~ Eleonora Tucci

I’m originally from Milan but my will to work in editorial drove me to London. As editor-in-chief of DWHA, I lead my team across print and online. Every day is a new learning experience and it has been an incredible journey so far. I’m an intrepid and curious soul. When I’m not traveling or working, you can find me spending time with friends, sipping fine wine, or indulging in different cuisines.

As lead designer, I enjoy working on new concepts and coming up with colourful and dynamic layouts for the magazine. Before moving to London, I had never lived in a big city. I was born in Kent, and spent three years of my degree living in Falmouth, Cornwall. My favourite honeymoon destination would be the Maldives. I’ve heard and read so many good things about it!

I was raised in London, but I’m originally of Ghanaian descent. As features editor, a lot of my time is spent working across print. Every part of my role gives me great joy, but I love working with Beauty the most, it’s always been a passion. My dream honeymoon destination is definitely Japan. I’ve always been fascinated by their culture and would love to experience it.

I am the Special Projects Director, so I look after all the customer relations and the special features. Prior to this I trained as an actor, and even played a Death Eater in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. What makes me happiest are my two dogs, and New York would be my favourite honeymoon destination. It is a wonderful city full of different cultures and great pizza.

I grew up in Johannesburg, in the sunny country of South Africa. I provide publication digital services; this gives me the opportunity to reconnect with my fellow South Africans, travel to different countries , and really get stuck in, in terms of what our industry has to offer. My favourite honeymoon destination would be Cape Town – home to some of the world’s most picturesque views!

Having lived in Milano for many years, I decided to move to London! It’s been six years and I’m still here! I’ve recently joined the team here at DWHA as a Digital Developer. Uncovering new destinations is the core of this business, which is great because travelling is my favourite hobby. I think Los Angeles might be my preferred city, I’ve only been one time but I’ve always planned to go back.

I was born in Germany, but I am of Sri Lankan descent. At DWHA I work as the Financial Controller. The part which I enjoy most, is using my statistical skills to draw comparisons between the past and the present to then implement new strategies for the future. My ideal honeymoon destination would be somewhere in Zurich, as everything is spotless and decorated to perfection.

I’m from African descent but proud to be brought up in Sunderland. I adore the occasion and family feel of a five day Asian wedding, and being a trained Bollywood dancer I also enjoy performing at them.  I’m determined to honeymoon in The Maldives.  Being part of the Weddings & Honeymoons team, and adapting weddings to this crazy Covid world is challenging but fun!
