Kelly has been at the vanguard of the UK’s wedding industry for almost two decades as a well-respected wedding industry entrepreneur, trainer and influencer.
She successfully founded and operated her boutique wedding planning business (The Bespoke Wedding Company), personally planning and delivering wedding celebrations for discerning global couples across a diverse range of venues and special places for 15 years. She’s worked in some of the UK’s finest Stately homes, London landmarks, 5-star hotels and private family homes, with deep experience in heritage locations, which carries through to her consulting work.
When wedding planning businesses were in their infancy, she undertook a Directorship of the trade body for independent wedding planners, UKAWP, for 7 years, where she trained, developed and nurtured hundreds of new wedding business owners on how to authentically sell their services, exceed customer expectation and run thriving businesses.
HOW IT STARTED
Kelly launched her consulting and training business for venues in 2014 when demand from wedding venue teams who knew and appreciated her working style was so great.
Kelly says “Having been part of the entire wedding process with many hundreds of wedding couples, I’ve seen every facet of how a venue operates from early marketing, website, enquiry handling, show-round, conversion, co-ordination and event day operations. I’ve seen the good, the bad and the huge untapped opportunities. I am passionate about working with special venues to ensure their entire offering is spot on, exceeding customer needs and ultimately driving sales results and attracting more of the right wedding business”.
Kelly heads up her small but perfectly formed team from her Surrey base, working with venues across all corners of the UK and beyond.
When not in the wedding world, Kelly can usually be found roaming a National Trust property, enjoying the great outdoors with her family and exploring the countryside, with France a particular favourite!
