I meet the loveliest humans sometimes – and today I’m here to tell you all about somebody who I’ve discovered is especially special! (If that wasn’t already a thing, it needs to be!) It takes a lot to manage a successful wedding business: superhuman dedication; insane organisational skills; creativity and above all kindness, empathy and that certain something which makes someone a real “people person”. When I did a quick introduction to Michelle from Elegante by Michelle J on the English Wedding insta and on our facebook page last week, the replies I got told me a LOT about this amazing lady. The reviews on her website do likewise; and while I haven’t met Michelle in person, I just know she’s something special.
So I’m delighted to be welcoming Elegante by Michelle J to the English Wedding team today. Michelle is a destination wedding and event planner in London and a professional member of the UKAWP. The Elegante by Michelle J mission is to always create the most magical and memorable of days for her couples and their guests. So let’s meet Michelle!

“I pride myself on being a highly recommended luxury wedding planner specialising in overseas and UK destination weddings. I am passionate about using my experience and expertise to design and deliver your dream wedding. I dedicate myself to your once-in-a-lifetime celebration with meticulous attention to detail, creative flair and unprecedented industry connections.
The weddings I plan are always elegant and always completely tailored to your particular taste and requirements. It is important to me that your wedding reflects who you are and marries your own style with the magic of the venue where you are marrying.
My planning style is a mix of no-fluff highly organised task mastering and warm, caring guidance. I am a hug, not a handshake. I am belt and braces with every detail because there are no second chances with your big day and this is coupled with exceptional creative flair.
As a destination wedding planning specialist, I am increasingly being asked to assist with UK weddings which have a destination element. Destination wedding planning requires skills that might not be utilised for a wedding close to home. So, in addition to planning, designing and co-ordinating the wedding itself I will also assist with finding a suitable venue for a UK wedding weekend, planning all of the logistics around travel and accommodation, and planning all of the other wedding weekend hospitality. If you bring all of your guests together over the course of a weekend, you will have the opportunity to spend quality time with each and every one of them. Guests at a UK destination wedding generally become connected and bonded in such a way that the atmosphere is incredibly special and unique to your day.
My clients want the best for their wedding experience and for their guests. They are discerning and want the highest level of excellence and service. They also want to make sure that everyone has an amazing time! If this sounds like you, I invite you to contact me in order to book an initial consultation. I look forward to meeting you and helping to make your dream wedding a reality.
