The Stellar Scholarship 2020





I am passionate about helping creative business owners in the wedding industry make lasting changes that revolutionise both how they do business and what they get out of their lives. I know I make a huge difference, but I also know that for some, often those most in need, the very idea of investing in themselves is frankly unthinkable.

That's why I founded The Stellar Scholarship. It's an all access pass to my consultancy services for free. No strings. Successful applicants will receive both my signature four month one-to-one consultancy and lifetime access to the Inimitable Institute; an online wedding business school.

For more details and how to apply read on... I can't wait to see who this year's students are! 

Let's weather the storm, together

There's no denying these are incredibly challenging times. Over the years I have seen the wedding industry come through recessions and troubles pretty much unscathed, but this is different.

Now more than ever, you need to know with complete clarity where your business is headed and have a clear plan for how to get there.

This year's scholarship has been designed to help you navigate the immediate uncertainty, carve out a plan for the future and ensure that your business can make you real money and sustain your life for the long term.

so what's it all about?

The Scholarship is worth over £3000 and includes...

comprehensive goal setting workbook

12 x hour long skype calls & full email access

in-person day [when we're able!]

lifetime membership to the inimitable institute









The Stellar Scholarship

there is no secret formula. it's about digging deep into your life, your values and your goals to intentionally create a business that works for you.

Just as each of the couples we create celebrations for are unique, so are the business owners in our industry. There's no one size fits all approach, but there are tried and trusted processes and methodologies that can underpin your business to ensure it is both profitable and sustainable. I work with people just like you, and you can now benefit from my experience and expertise for free.

be exceptional, be you,

I was lucky to be chosen as one of Kim’s scholarship students in 2019. I literally whooped for joy when I found out I was chosen! Having worked with Kim before, I knew her level of professionalism and knowledge of the wedding industry was second to none.

At a time when my brand needed refining and strengthening, Kim’s input was exactly what I needed. Calm, measured, and always relevant, Kim provided me with an amazing level of support both face to face and via calls.

My brand is now stronger, more resilient and able to grow in the right direction, even weathering these more difficult times.

A note from last year's students

"When I found out that I had been selected as one of Kim's scholarship students last year, I was absolutely over the moon. At that time, I was at a bit of a crossroads in my business and was really looking for someone to come in, take a look at my business and my ideas for growth and provide me with a bit of a business health check. Kim has so much experience, both as an established and successful wedding planner, and also as a business woman with a young family and I felt that she was the perfect "business partner" to guide me, keep me accountable and help me to navigate the right path forward. I wasn't wrong. From the very first session, Kim and I worked out a strategy for my new business venture and also a checklist of key areas for review in my existing business. She helped me to see the light on issues which I had been stuck on for a good few months...that session alone was worth its weight in gold! I left the meeting feeling motivated, reassured but most importantly, excited. Every session was like that with Kim. Her calm, methodical and unassuming nature really resonated with me and I could always count on Kim to listen, gives sound advice and help to create a clear direction. She is also very open, and happy to share best practices which she has learnt and developed during her time in the industry which is so refreshing and was really helpful. By the end of our time together, I had made so much progress in my business and had had created tangible changes which have really elevated my business and also re-ignited my enthusiasm for the job. I will absolutely be looking to use Kim again in the near future - she is a fantastic coach and mentor and someone I would now also call a wonderful friend."

I have worked with hundreds of businesses since 2005 when I became a luxury wedding planner. I know the world of weddings inside-out and have a reputation for a calm, considered and nurturing approach to business consultancy. My understanding of a high-end international clientele combined with my extensive knowledge of the industry enables me to help other discerning wedding business owners elevate their brands, work with the clientele they really want to and build businesses that fit their lives. I am incredibly excited to be opening the Stellar Scholarship again and can't wait to meet this year's students.
