hire a wedding planner for your Italian wedding - Elegante by Michelle J (1)

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!


Carmela Weddings are Sam and Lisa and they’re not your average wedding planners. They believe that luxury and edgy are a perfect match – and make it their mission to bring them together in weddings that are unforgettable. I’m really rooting for these guys: wedding planning needs a refresh, and couples with a clear sense of style have been crying out for a duo like this for too long!

The Carmela Weddings ethos is firmly based on luxury, but luxury rooted in style, art and fashion as Sam and Lisa believe that the potent mix of these elements is the way to create a truly unique day that reflects their couples’ personalities.

As a husband and wife team, they are able to offer something different by seeing the wedding process through male and female eyes. This doesn’t simply mean that Sam knows suits and Lisa knows flowers, or vice versa, but their skills and experience in design, event management, entertainment, logistics and more ensures that any aspect of the wedding you want and deserve is in safe hands. They’re also a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners so you can know you’re getting a professional service too!
