The Elegante by Michelle J mission is to always create the most magical and memorable wedding days and weekends for my couples and their guests.
As a wedding planner with a niche specialisation in luxury destination weddings for UK and US based Jewish couples, I have visited, and had the privilege of working at, numerous overseas and UK venues.
I have also built fantastic relationships and effective collaborations with a whole host of extremely talented and professional wedding industry suppliers and I am passionate about sharing all of this knowledge, experience and passion to help create your dream wedding.
More and more couples are looking for a wedding weekend experience, and I bring my destination planning skills to all of the UK based wedding weekends that I plan in addition to my overseas weddings.
I provide a warm, friendly and personal service, coupled with meticulous attention to detail and creative flair. The benefits to you of working with a UK based planner, include:
- Ease of communication with opportunities for a more interactive and involved planning process and regular meetings — a more personal service, I call it “ a hug, rather than a handshake”
- I have the experience and contacts in the host country — you only have to deal with/through me
- I will assist with items an overseas planner would not normally handle including the Chuppah (ceremony planning and legalities), guest list management, invitations and wedding day stationery and styling items, travel and accommodation logistics, entertainment (if bringing from the UK), likewise hair and make-up artists
- I am able to suggest ways in which to blend the host country wedding traditions with our own Jewish customs

Past couples’ comments
Thank you to Michelle for helping us to create the wedding of our dreams. She managed to organise two massive events on successive nights in Florence and we were so impressed with how she manage to co-ordinate everything from the UK. We will be forever grateful to Michelle for making such an important occasion so personalised and special.”
Michelle did an absolutely fantastic job of making our wedding weekend in Italy the most magical experience for us and our guest. We owe the success of our wedding to her. She is extremely hard working, organised, and had meticulous attention to detail, advising us on aspects that 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.”
