“Ultimate Wedding Planner Movie” Has “Sexy” Party At Cannes Film Festival


The Cannes Film Festival is always full of surprises where else can you run in to celebrities from every nation, from opera stars to actresses, super models, to royal families all in place, in one week!!

Cannes is also the place for the best parties. I ended up at a party for the production company Sea Star Films, the producers of Planet Fashion TV. It was held at the Carlton Hotel, and was a formal sunset cocktail with a couture fashion show.
In attendance were some royals from both Sweden and Germany. Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Princess Elna Margaret zu Bentheim were seen sipping a new sparkling rose wine called “Sexy”. This new wine seemed to be a big hit, several models and actresses were seen holding the bottles of the sexy wine and posing with it in i-phone pictures, you know to show that they were “Sexy”. Ha.

The fashion show was a mix from several international designers, including Olena Dats from Ukraine, Sophie Reyes from France, Athea Couture from Milan and Nicole Coste from Monaco. The Nicole Coste that had the child with Prince Albert of Monaco, out of wedlock, which also happens to be the only male heir. Then there was a feature from the famous designer Claude Bonucci who has designed for male celebrities including the singer Prince. Bonucci has even designed for the James Bond movies. He sent a glorious gold suit down the runway on male supermodel Myc Agnew, you may know him from the Gucci ads.

Also in attendance was one of the founders of Google, Marcel Van Lohuizen, as well as a smattering of American and British celebrities. The party was in honor of a new film that Sea Star Films released at Cannes, a documentary about the largest wedding planner in the world. He’s a Japanese man named Yoshi Nojiri, and he was the youngest person in Japan to take a company public. In the gift bag among anti-aging creams and wine decanters were copies of the movie trailer for “The Ultimate Wedding Planner Movie.”


How One Japanese Man Has Made It His Business To Spread Happiness

The passion and creativity of Japanese wedding/event producer, Yoshi Nojiri are the subject of a new documentary titled The Ultimate Wedding Planner, produced by Miami Beach-based Sea Star Films and directed by Celia Evans. It’s a story about someone achieving global success, but it’s also more than that. Nojiri’s ascent and multifaceted personality provide an insightful case study on what it means to be zealously immersed and engaged in what you do (whatever that may be), which can beget fulfillment, and prosperity.

“I expect people to be obsessed with their work,” Nojiri tells Global Trend News. “I don’t care for a ho-hum existence. You should quit if you don’t have passion. ”

Nojiri himself had to start from scratch, although it was chance that gave him the impetus to embark on his vocation. “When I was younger, I wanted to become like my father, who’s the president of a construction company,” he says. “But he told me my older brother would eventually take over. That’s why I had to think of my own business for the future—find my own way.”

When he was 20, Nojiri attended a friend’s wedding party, which he found to be rather banal. He did some research and realized that the Japanese wedding market was huge, yet the actual events at the time were boringly conventional and unfashionable, so he made it his mission to change that, to tap into people’s imaginations and create the most far-out and fanciful realms of wonderment in which to party and celebrate a union.

About 15 years ago, with $200,000 borrowed from his father and an office of only three people, he launched his company. He has since built a wedding planning empire, often using unorthodox methods, like donning a Santa suit on Christmas Day as he gave a potential investor his proposal . Before he knew it, at only 28, he was able to take his company public—the youngest Japanese businessman to do in the country’s history. He now produces over 22,000 weddings a year, as well as sumptuous events for such luxury clients as Audi, Cartier, Dior, and Ferrari.
