Kelly Chandler: Award winning wedding planner

Those of you who follow us regularly will know that we love meeting other local mums who run their own businesses.  We also like to share their knowledge and talents with you in case it is something you might need in the future.

This month we would like to introduce you to an amazing woman and friend of Becky’s: Kelly Chandler. Kelly is an award winning wedding planner based just outside of Cobham.  In 2003 she set up The Bespoke Wedding Company using her expert knowledge in project and international event management. Kelly heads an amazing team that will manage anything from the most intimate country wedding to grand city weddings.  She also specialises in arranging stunning and very complex marquee builds for couples who’s ideal wedding venue is their own home.


Kelly knows that all brides dream of having a beautifully unique wedding.  Organising such events requires incredible attention to detail and spot on time management.  The Bespoke Wedding Company manages eight to ten exclusive weddings a year.  This ensures that each wedding gets Kelly’s full and undivided attention.

The proof of Kelly’s success was evident when within only four years of trading, The Bespoke Wedding Company won ‘Best Wedding Planner’ at the Wrapit Industry Awards in 2007.  Now, Kelly is a judge for the Wedding Industry Awards.


Through her years of experience Kelly now holds a wealth of knowledge and a little black book filled with the best wedding contacts a bride could wish for.  From the most exclusive venues to award winning caterers, Kelly will find the perfect combination for each of her couples.

Kelly described her own style as natural classic, but she admitted to having a cheeky side and loves working in finite detail with and for her diverse clients to deliver what THEY want for their wedding.


I asked Kelly if she had a particular favourite wedding.  She told me about a recent celebration at a beautiful stately home, where she actually included a fountain inside the marquee.  She said the colours were gorgeous in duck egg blues and pale pinks, but then there was a surprise night club area in another section of the marquee.  She even incorporated a ‘man snug’ area for the boys to relax in and drink whiskey in Chesterfield armchairs!  That sounds like an amazing party!

Kelly’s talent lies in the fact that she truly listens to what her clients want.  The pictures above and below are an examples of Kelly’s ability to make every couples dreams become a reality, no matter what the brief is.  The wedding photographed below incorporated a Russian themed drinks reception, elegant indoor lunch location, circus workshop and Moroccan afternoon tea party – all in one quirky London nightclub!



Kelly can extend her planning service to other special occasions, celebrations and private parties where attention to detail is needed.

Seeing what Kelly does, has made us wish we could get married all over again!  So if you know of anyone looking for the best bespoke wedding or party planner, then look no further.
