REFINE & SHINE
6 month consulting programme
Book the volume and quality of weddings your venue deserves!
They were once lacking confidence in their product, unsure of how to attract the right quality bookings by embracing new techniques whilst still holding their values and heritage strong, and stuck in a treadmill of unfulfilling bookings.
People notice the bounce in the step of each of the team members of my client venues; professionals proud of their wedding offering combined with the huge financial successes that 20 new weddings annually has brought.
Kelly has brought immense clarity to our vision for taking our wedding business to a new level, with a clear, easy-to-understand step by step strategy. With her calm, reassuring manner, amazing organisational skills and meticulous attention to detail, Kelly inspires confidence and is helping us achieve things we simply couldn’t have done without her.
I am so thrilled with the Wedding Inspiration day results – 6 confirmations and 13 provisional bookings across the two sites – a triumph. Thank you so much for masterminding the whole thing so seamlessly’

time for change
The adage goes ‘if you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got’ or more likely less. You’ll receive a bigger workload, less rewards, unhappy team members, poor staff retention and likely a dwindling wedding reputation.
You and your special location deserve much better than that.
The wedding market is an incredibly fast-paced one yet a very worthwhile industry to be a leading light in. I can help you set new inspiring standards that you’re proud to spearhead.

Before we started working with Kelly, our wedding business was successful but somewhat "stuck in a rut". We were achieving but not over achieving and needed to look to the future and how we could shape our wedding business for the changing marketplace.
While we worked with Kelly, she helped us to look beyond our current audience, look in detail at our marketing and to think outside the box. Through making revisions to our marquee, online presence and valuable introductions to industry contacts, media, bloggers and wedding planners we have seen an increase in enquiries and a much improved conversion rate.
As a result of our work with Kelly, our weddings business is now set for the future, more attractive to potential clients and we have already an increase of around 20% on our confirmed bookings.
Kelly is a pleasure to work with, she is down to earth, honest and has amazing ideas and proposals that don't cost the earth but make a significant difference to a venue.

Regular clients of mine have reported an uplift of 20 bookings per year over the past 2 years I’ve consulted for them on key marketing projects , the investment paying for itself time and time again therefore!
Let’s talk about how you can obtain the same sort of impressive results – click here to line up a call.
Surrey (near to Cobham & Guildford)
We are able to work with venues locally, further afield and internationally.
I really don't know how you manage time after time to pull off such an amazing showcase event - Sunday's event definitely had the absolute 'wow' factor! And heaven knows how you get so many quality couples through the doors each time, over 200 brides in attendance is just unheard of in the Home Counties, so whatever you're doing is working wonders. And I know from meeting suppliers and wedding coordinators at other venues, that your Inspiration Event is regularly talked about, dare I say that I often sense a little bit of envy!
Since Sunday I've taken two wedding bookings, and I'm sure many more will come in during the next few months.
