I am thankful for the nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, and dreams that turned into reality.

Do you find yourself dreaming about this amazing wedding day that is filled with nothing but joy and laughter? One that’s such a breeze to plan, free of struggles or worries about budgets / guestlist dramas / family politics?

Are you secretly wishing you will hear all your guests telling you it’s the BEST wedding they have ever been to? And do you imagine waking up the day after your wedding feeling totally blissed out and so proud of creating the absolute day of your dreams, and then some?

Well I am here to tell you that it IS possible and you are ABSOLUTELY capable of making this happen. You have the unique vision, skills and personality needed to create an epic wedding day, you just need a little insider know-how and the right tools to set yourself up for success, so you can plan a wedding that everyone will truly enjoy, including you.

I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF POSSIBILITY
& IT DRIVES EVERYTHING I DO.

supporting creatives like you to craft the wedding of your dreams is what I am truly passionate about.

I’m Michelle Kelly and I’ve planned weddings for some of the most incredible clients over the past 7 years. I’m here to help you take those big vision dreams and make them a reality.

Together we can kick overwhelm to the kerb and say so-long to stress, instead I encourage you to embrace this pivotal life-stage and have a lot of fun along the way.

My mission is to support women like you to be the bridechilla you really want to be, so you can look back on this journey with nothing but happy memories and a heap of pride at what you have achieved.

SOMETIMES THE PEOPLE ARouND YOU WON’t understand your journey. they dont need to, it’s not for them.

Most people think that an amazing wedding involves some kind of secret formula plus a shed-load of money – well I’m here to tell you that that’s just not the case. A great wedding IS NOT about how much money you spend, the secret formula part is close though and I am so excited to share this with you in my online course Wedplanology.

You may be newly engaged and so excited about embarking on this most wonderful of journeys’, or perhaps you’ve started to plan and then hit a block once the stresses and strains started to unfold and now can’t seem to get your mojo back. I totally get it. But it also really saddens me when I hear brides-to-be saying things like:

I feel like no matter what i do or say, i end
up upsetting someonE

I CAn’t sleep! the wedding anxiety dreams are getting out of control

I’m so excited yet my mum / best friend / other half just isn’t interested

bad luck seems to follow me around, im constantly faced with issues

IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE thIS WAY,
I PROMISE!

I totally get how stressful planning a wedding can seem, it’s a pivotal moment for you and possibly also the largest amount of money you have been responsible for spending in your entire life, so there is a lot of pressure riding on YOU to get everything right.

Trust me, I know what it’s like when the stress and overwhelm takes over – in the past I’ve agonized and worried myself stupid over elements of my life, to the point of making myself ill and it’s not been a pretty picture. I’ve suffered anxiety and depression, I’ve lost friends and loved ones and I’ve dealt with multiple challenges that at the time seemed insurmountable, all whilst running a successful business and serving a multitude of clients.

The traumas and stresses in my life have lead me to where I am today and I’ve now spent many years exploring a more positive and self-nurturing path, making vast changes in my life. I’ve invested in high-level coaching to make me a stronger business-woman and I have a daily mindfulness and meditation practice for my wellbeing and peak performance as a wedding planner.

I’ve explored better ways of living my most authentic life, pushing past my fears and recognizing the blocks that have previously held me back.

All of these changes allow me to tackle life and business with ease. At any one time I could be planning up to 10 epic weddings for a multitude of clients, alongside co-ordinating restoration works on my home and managing my growing business, as well as actually having a life. So trust me when I say I know exactly what kind of pressure you are under and I also know how you can manage it so the wedding planning process is a more joyful and exciting one.

and I want to share all of this with you!

Michelle is one of the most talented, passionate and creative wedding planners working in the UK wedding industry today.

DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR.

I’ve always been a bit of a go-getter and have rarely settled for the well-trodden path. I was a conscientious student and loved to learn anything new, my mind was always buzzing with creative ideas so you would often find me drawing, painting or writing some weirdly fantastical story.

School was great but as I got older my thirst for more grew stronger, I still wanted to learn, but I also wanted to be ‘doing’, I wanted to be out there in the real world putting all this learning into practice. I went to college to study for my A-Levels but quickly grew tired of ‘establishment rules’, I researched how I could still get these qualifications AND the real-world experience I so craved, long before we had internet on tap. I found the solution and quit college, I enrolled in an open learning course and started working for various entrepreneurial businesses.  This experience blew my mind and empowered me so much, I learnt an incredible amount about people, life and success during those early years. While all my friends were boozing their way through college and university I was gaining the much coveted ‘practical experience’ required to be a success in the world of business- oh and I added on a degree to those home-study A-Levels too.

Fast-forward a few years and I had an incredible job with a marketing agency working on amazing corporate projects, I traveled to beautiful European Cities with my work and picked up several awards along the way.  But something continued to niggle me. Whilst I knew I was doing a fantastic job, the creativity just wasn’t there for me and this left me feeling quite unfulfilled in my work. Which did not sit well with me, at all.

So I remembered back to my 17 year old self, the one who had all that fire and ambition to do things her way.

I left my job, took some time out to explore who I was and what I loved  to do and set about creating THE LIFE & BUSINESS OF MY DREAMS

I went on to create POCKETFUL OF DREAMS, A business that I love. planning weddings for international clients.

I’ve been named a game-changer and innovator in the wedding industry and one of the UK’s best wedding planners. I have been featured in the Huffington Post, Vogue, Glamour, Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Love My Dress and almost every major wedding blog. Since then I have worked with some truly incredible people, from spectacular wedding venues and brands to my awesome couples who never cease to amaze me with their sense of adventure and love of life.

I continue to be inspired and motivated by the people I meet along my journey and I’m constantly hunting out the unique and the feel-good that life has to offer.

This continual development has given me a unique perspective on what it takes to create a truly memorable and authentic experience, encapsulated into

one awesome wedding day!

“Michelle is like the wedding oracle, what she doesn’t know about planning a wedding isn’t worth knowing.

She just knows how to solve any problem and she does so in such a calming manner that it made planning my wedding a dream.”

RACHAEL OTTERWELL

“We have never come across anyone bursting with such dynamic and utterly visionary ideas..

Michelle’s style is fun, bold and unashamedly different, she has this way of communicating that generates such a buzz as well as making the vision really clear to everyone.”

PHOEBE Caramitsos

“Michelle made planning our wedding a genuinely fun experience. Always helpful and enthusiastic, full of great ideas, awesome creativity and her experience is invaluable.

She is possibly the most organised person I have ever met and I thought I was pretty organised.”

Alfie

I have a dog named Alfie, he is a working cocker spaniel who I absolutely adore. He gets smothered in kisses on a daily basis and is truly the love of my life.

Country Girl

I’m a country girl at heart, even though I grew up in the City. I live in the stunning Ribble Valley in England and love walking it’s rolling hills and being surrounded by nature.

Stylish Spaces

I’m constantly drawn to a stylish interior space be it a new restaurant, hotel or café. I’m always snapping away on my iPhone capturing those little details that inspire.

Morning Routine

I have a daily ritual starting with meditation & visualisations, then exercise, followed by a healthy breakfast – usually it’s a smoothie or porridge in winter.

The Beach

The beach is my happy place and I’ve enjoyed exploring many of them across the UK, Europe, America and the Caribbean. I’ve never been to Asia or Australia –  definitely on my bucket list.

Magazines

I have a thing for magazines, sure I love the online world but nothing quite beats the feeling of flicking through a physical magazine. Throw in a bar of chocolate and you have the perfect indulgent moment.

Organisation

Everyone says I’m the most organised person they know, I even have a spreadsheet for planning meals that links to my online shopping list so I waste no time on the weekly shop.

Instagram

I am slightly obsessed with instagram – as a visual creative it’s such a great tool for seeking out inspiration and sharing ideas with my followers.

My Home

Curating my perfect home space is a huge passion of mine. My style is free-spirited and laid-back luxe – feminine and soft with a little edge and I LOVE texture.
