How we work

Pocketful of Dreams, wedding planner, wedding planning, wedding stylist, Michelle Kelly

1. We Chat

// We love meeting new people and hearing all about the vision you have for your wedding or event. We kick things off with an initial consultation with you so we can hear all about your plans and dreams for your big day and discuss how we can help you realise them.

Then, if everything falls into place and you like the look of us we’ll get to work on the exciting part: the creative research stage.

2. We Explore

// We passionately believe in really getting to know each couple that we work with; you are unique and we think your event should be unique too.  And this is where we need a little help from you…

We have developed a few exploration exercises for you to complete to help us understand and appreciate your tastes, preferences and quirks. It’s our job at this stage to read between the lines, tease out anecdotes, ask questions, expand ideas and generally get to know you. We promise we won’t ask you to do anything too onerous or scary but we’ve found this stage is key to creating a design that recreates your own tastes and personalities.

3. We Design

// This is where the magic happens as we merge our skills, experience, and creative thinking with your story to create a design that is true to you.

Armed with our favourite notebook and a stack of pencils, we dream, we scribble and we sketch.  Away from our desks, our computers and the constraints of what has been done before, we let our brains explore and create to find the ultimate idea. We will develop your own unique design, outlining the big idea, colour palettes, design elements and special touches that effortlessly represent who you are. We promise to distil your own story into a beautiful and meaningful experience taking you and your guests on the most breathtaking of journeys.

4. We Review, Refine and Execute

// We’ll work with you to tinker and refine until we get the perfect design concept that makes your heart sing. After all, this is your celebration; we bring the design expertise but we promise not to take over or force you down a certain route.  Instead we work closely with you – alongside you – talking, discovering you and your dreams, and taking and shaping your ideas.

Then the next steps are up to you: we can hand over a polished look book for you to go and deliver yourself or we’ll roll our sleeves back up and work with you to help style, source, create and ultimately deliver everything right up to and including the day itself.
