YOU DELIVERED THE WEDDING OF OUR DREAMS

“Michelle, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it: you delivered the wedding of our dreams. What’s more, you and your incredible team worked tirelessly behind the scenes (with smiles on your faces!) so we could enjoy every moment of it. Working with you has been a total pleasure from start to finish and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Also, your carefully chosen suppliers were all wonderful, and lovely people to work with.

So many of our friends have said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and as our friends go to a LOT of weddings, that’s incredibly high praise. It was certainly the best wedding I’ve ever been to and we’ll cherish the memories for the rest of our lives.

Sending so much love and missing you already.”

AN EXCERPT FROM THE GROOM’S SPEECH

“Before I release you from this speech prison, I have to briefly mention some other people tonight, without whom this night would not have been possible. Michelle – our wedding planner – or “Mich” as we’ve taken it upon ourselves to affectionately call you, even though I’m not entirely sure you ever agreed to that nickname in the first place!

Michelle – Thank you for everything! I can honestly say your job is the last job I’d ever want on this earth, but you’ve been absolutely brilliant and the proof is in the pudding (literally, did you try that Millefoglie?) She hasn’t asked for a plug but I’m going to do it anyway – Elegante by Michelle J is the name of her business. You won’t regret using her services.”

A REAL VISION THAT YOU TOTALLY TURNED INTO REALITY

“Can I, on behalf of myself, Quentin and all the Fox family express our huge appreciation and thanks for orchestrating that incredible event on Sunday. I think Stephanie put it very well and I can only say “hear, hear!”

When I think back to our first visit to Villa Oliva in the November cold and drizzle, it seemed like we were making a huge leap of faith in imagining we could end up with such a magical setting for the wedding. But you, Jo and the kids had a real vision that you totally made into reality. Just amazing.”

FROM OUR FIRST MEETING IT WAS CLEAR SHE UNDERSTOOD EXACTLY WHAT OUR DREAM WEDDING WAS

“We recently used Elegante by Michelle J to plan our dream wedding in Florence and we couldn’t recommend her services enough. Every single aspect was meticulously organised with so much attention to detail. We wouldn’t have known where to have started with planning a wedding abroad so when we were referred to Michelle by a friend we were very interested in meeting her. From the first meeting it was clear that she understood exactly what our dream wedding was and that she had all the various suppliers to make it happen. Working with Michelle was an absolute joy, we were able to enjoy the build up to the wedding without any stress, confident in the knowledge that she was completely on top of everything. The wedding day was a complete success with all of Michelle’s planning and hard work paying off. Thank you again Michelle.”

Michelle made every aspect feel like a walk in the park

“Thank you so much for helping us create the wedding of our dreams! We felt in expert hands along the whole way, Michelle made the planning process completely stress free and so enjoyable. Not only did we find Michelle a joy to work with but it was also evident that all the suppliers felt the same, she immediately formed very good working relationships with all of them and she was the glue that held everyone together. She managed to organise two massive events on successive nights for us in Florence and we were so impressed with how she managed to coordinate everything from abroad.

Michelle was also extremely responsive to all messages and would promptly reply with well-considered answers. Michelle’s attention to detail is amazing she took note of every detail big and small and incorporated it to make something really fantastic.

She very quickly worked out exactly what we wanted to achieve and not only did she deliver this with incredible professionalism and enthusiasm, she also gave us so many fantastic ideas that we never would have thought of that made the wedding absolutely unforgettable for us and the guests! She foresaw any potential problems along the way and was always one step ahead with resolving them. She is a real ‘yes’ person and when we suggested something that was going to be tricky to execute, not only would she find a way to deliver it but would do so with style and flare that you can only find in a real expert. We will forever be grateful to Michelle for making such an important day so personalised and special for us. Absolutely everything about Michelle was super slick and made every aspect seem like a walk in the park, she nailed it!

An absolutely fantastic job

Michelle did an absolutely fantastic job of making our wedding week-end in Italy the most magical experience for us and our guests. We owed the success of our wedding to her. She is extremely hard working, organised and had a meticulous attention to detail, advising us on aspects we never would have thought of, but which were so important for the smooth running and enjoyment of the day. You can only expect this of a true professional and she was such a pleasure to work with.

Thank you does not seem enough

Michelle,

Thank you does not seem enough to say, you were outstanding in your total organisation of Fiona`s surprise 60th at The Dorchester. I could not have done this without you. Your professionalism, politeness and attention to every detail was phenomenal. I know you were faced with a few challenges along the way but nothing seem to faze you.

You were always one step ahead of all the other suppliers and it truly showed. I can`t wait for my big birthday, Fiona will be straight on the phone to you.

A million thanks again and we both wish you every success for the future…. Not that you need it!.

I have already recommended you to a friend of mine who is organising an event in 2018.

With our fondest wishes

Lost for Words

“Lost for words (which is unusual for me) – absolutely loved the party and all the hard work and awesome ideas you came up with. I know I am not the easiest of clients and you did an amazing job at pulling together rather a difficult brief.”

Genuinely Invaluable

“Michelle recently planned and organised my 60th birthday party and I found her help to be genuinely invaluable. I’m sure that’s a word which is used frequently to describe Michelle’s input to events but it is not an overstatement. Having her take such great care over all of the details, as well as coming up with such lovely ideas and introducing me to such great suppliers meant that I could just really enjoy the party without any worries whatsoever.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Michelle and I hope to come back for help with more fabulous parties in the future.”

“Before we go off on honeymoon we just wanted to say a massive thank you.

We had the most wonderful wedding day thanks to all your efforts. You have dealt with every detail from start to finish in a calm and professional manner.

I have received messages all day saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to and I know that is entirely down to your attention to detail.”
