Sophie Li- Multi Business Owner!
Working with Lucy was exactly what I needed to take my business to the next level. I came across her amidst the Covid-19 lockdown and she has changed my life! The Unlimited Success Expansion blew my mind!
I immediately connected with her positive and down to earth approach and her coaching has assisted me in developing the next steps in my career whilst addressing some personal challenges that were holding me back. I’m now a lot more confident, know exactly who my ideal client is, have clear branding and have improved my money mind-set!
Lucy is a professional who naturally makes you feel at ease. She’s provided me with clear and helpful insight to bring my business and life to where I want it to be. She is empathetic whilst simultaneously encouraging and challenging, always pushing you to move forward with your business.
I’m so happy with what I’ve achieved in my short time working with her. I now have a beautiful website, passive income, plenty of bookings next year (despite doubling my fee) and a clear business plan in place. I’ve found an amazing support network within the membership group where I can share my achievements and continue to grow alongside other likeminded wedding professionals.
I couldn’t recommend Lucy more! A wonderful coach and newfound friend
Lea- Wedding Planner and Designer
As a person who is at the very beginning of my business journey, the Soulful Foundations course was a fantastic source of inspiration.
I’ve always dreamed of becoming a wedding planner but I also had my doubts if I could make it. However, Lucy convinced me that it’s possible.
Being surrounded by so many interesting, inspiring and hard working people truly strengthened my desire to create my own business.
Lucy is the best mentor you can wish for. She is talented in motivating others, passing on her broad knowledge but also helping others create the life they really want.
Throughout the course I’ve learned so many important things which are essential for building a wedding business and being successful with it. Thank you for everything you do!! You’re a star!!!
Paula Rio- El Zarrio Filmmakers
Lucy helped me transform our creative business, helping to to create a soulful selling strategy to achieve more clients and having a stronger more aligned brand that resonates with our dream clients.
Her Soulful Foundations Course was really helpful to create a full transformation of my business. Having a coach as Lucy, even after more than 10 years having a successful business, helped me to push my business forward, to book more couples and to innovate creating new services.
Lucy, as a coach but also as a successful wedding planner, has the perfect point of view to analyze our business and has given me the perspective to help us grow in wedding videography.
I highly recommend her business coaching for everyone who wants to have a successful and long life wedding business. Thank you so much, Lucy!
Jeanette Obytz- Med Weddings- Wedding Planner
I can highly recommend the ‘The soulful Foundations’ course to anyone who needs some motivation, anytime and not just during a difficult year.
Initially I came across of one of the week long challenges, which I’ve enjoyed very much. My motivation was low after all the cancellation and postponements we’ve experienced and the challenge came at the right time and shortly after, I’ve joined the course.
All was valuable advise and nicely presented, easy to follow. Even though, I have a tried and tested client managements system in place, it was good to see how others work and deal with the day to day life in the wedding world and I am now confident to improve my systems and on boarding experience for my clients.
Being part of the FB group adds huge value. The highlight of the course was the one to one call with Lucy… she really is genuine and free in giving advise and sharing her experience. She gives it her all! I have upped my prices since and take less bookings on, but more quality ones! So all good
If you are on the fence at present, do take the course, you wont regret it Jeanette from Medweddings
Ruth at Flores La Boheme- Wedding Florist
From the very beginning of 2017, Lucy was instrumental not only in developing my business but showing me where I needed to start and guiding me along the way!
I was a lawyer working for an Insurance Firm, and at that stage of my career I was unhappy with my 9 to 5! To leave the security of my job and my comfort zone as a lawyer to become a florists and start from zero was something that required lots of courage and confidence. However with Lucy’s continuous encourage and support I was able to do just that! Lucy helped me to realise my potential and support me emotionally on those moments where my confidence failed me.
Once I started developing my business, she showed me every step of the way, how to face the unlimited amount of tasks that starting a business and working as a Wedding florist involved. From organisation of tasks, to promotion and online presence, from brand to product, from networking in the industry to SEO and accountancy. I learned how to be able to offer a product that I was proud of, producing the best of the best and creating my own tribe of followers!
Now I’m an established florist in the Wedding industry, with more business that I can cover. I’m happy doing what I really was born to do. No more hours locked at the office dealing with problems.
And I’m aware that I was so lucky to count with Lucy to help me do it.
Thanks a million!!!
Katherine Holmes Cake Design- Wedding Cake Maker
It was mid lockdown and I definitely wasn’t making any cakes for anyone (except myself which my jeans tell me wasn’t the best idea!) I was questioning whether I even wanted to carry on with cakes and thought maybe I should just get a “proper” job.
Then I came across Lucy…her infectious enthusiasm and positivity reached out and grabbed me. I knew Lucy could help me because she had a plan and I didn’t. Lucy had the key, the secret, the knowledge, the expertise, the drive and the passion to help me succeed, which has all rubbed off on me, like it will you!
I needed a push. I needed to be accountable. I needed a Lucy! I can’t stress enough how much you will get from working with Lucy. She will be there for you, holding your hand and guiding you to where you want to be. I promise if you invest in yourself, it will be the best money you’ve ever spent!
Olivia at Nulyweds- Wedding Planner & Designer
I started working with Lucy in 2019 having moved to Portugal to build my business. In just 3 months I went from 1 couple to 4 booked couples, many more enquiries than before and doubling my income (which is still low but it’s still doubled!). Within 6 months I was fully booked for the following year! With her support and guidance I’ve saved myself from sticky situations with difficult enquiries, made my website better, streamlined my processes and felt far more positive about my future. She doesn’t lie to you at any point and say that the road is simple. It’s not. And it’s taken alot of blood, sweat and tears to get to this point and I’m not even where I want to be yet. BUT considering how lonely and frustrating it would’ve been without her, I’m glad I had Lucy on my side the whole time. Thank you thank you thank you! xx
Cynthia at Kimberley Rose Designs
Lucy is a great coach! She is kind, considerate and so giving of her knowledge and expertise. She cares and has a genuine interest in seeing my business succeed. I approached Lucy when I was floundering in my business and she helped me to focus, identify my ideal clients and provide the structure and accountability that I needed to put things in place in my business. I’m still working through some of the processes she walked me through but having her in my corner has made a world of difference.
Assumpta at Ave Creations
I started working with Lucy after feeling a little lost and confused about my [somewhat] new business. I approached her after receiving positive feedback from a friend and was blown away by Lucy’s authenticity, wealth of knowledge and experience and most importantly, her willingness to share.
Lucy is candid but kind and does not sell you a dream. She is passionate and trustworthy – having someone who is living the experience and working at a level that I want to achieve has truly made a difference to my outlook. Since working with Lucy, it has reignited my excitement for what is to come and I cannot thank her enough.
I can assume that there are, of course, many wonderful wedding planning coaches. No doubt they are competent and dedicated people. Lucy, however, belongs in a very small subset of that group: the rare, steadfast and truly authentic coaches.
Her teaching on money mindset helped me to identify and clear a number of my blocks. In addition, Lucy’s passion and belief in me and my business were invaluable during the months that we worked together – even now, after the culmination of our sessions, she still checks on me, which goes to show just how much she cares.
Lucy listens, she is not condescending nor patronising and her knowledge plus experience are broad and run deep which is the result of years of hard work and curiosity on her part. I believe that the tools Lucy gave me, coupled with attitudes that she helped me hone and my commitment to my business will help me take it to an entirely new level. I cannot sing her praises enough. Thank you you Lucy.
Emma at ELW
I wanted to keep working with weddings, however I had lost a bit of motivation – then I met Lucy and she made me see the right way for me to go. I have found my passion in the business again, and I am developing this into my business so that I will always feel happy with what I am doing.
The coaching session was very beneficial, because Lucy asked just the right questions, I got very surprised how she nailed the right subjects and made me see how to improve my own situation.
Only after a 2 hours session I felt completely filled with energy, but a little overwhelmed of how much I had to start doing with my company! I was happy that Lucy created an action plan specially for me, and I can work through it step by step.
I am truly grateful for this turn in my career!
Mark Honeyman – Wedding Guitarist
Lucy has been instrumental in helping me to reevaluate my business model and to refocus on developing new income streams. Her passion for coaching and enthusiasm for helping is infectious. I throughly recommend her coaching.
Eliza Johnson-Humanist Wedding Celebrant
Lucy is such an ebullient, wise and generous person. She’s so open and honest and incredibly easy to get on with but she also keeps you on track and helps maintain your focus. I’ve found her incredibly helpful and she has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the wedding business so I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her.
It was the early days of lockdown, my motivation was zilch, my weddings all postponed…I was staring into the abyss of an empty diary, bank account and had no idea how or what I could actually do. Frozen. Inert. However, having admired Lucy and Jesus’ work for many months…I joined the Wedding Coaching Corner, at my lowest ebb…well, what a revelation. It was literally a business life saver and if it doesn’t sound too OTT a personal one too.
I engaged in the 5 day challenge and it was fan.bloody tastic….it has really helped to improved my motivation, connect and meet others, helped my organisation and mindset and most importantly – helped me get bookings. With warm, authentic and an honest charm, Lucy is a very engaging and motivational coach. She has a great deal of theoretical and applied knowledge and skill in the business world and is a generous ally in helping to support business development, using evidence based and well researched approaches. Her natural ability to connect and communicate makes working with her like meeting your best friend, someone who actually gets you and wants to help. A godsend and breath of fresh air in one.
I was lucky enough to be coaching 1:2:1 with her and it was very thorough, very person centred and did not skirt round the important issues, though this was delivered with warmth, honesty and genuine empathy. I honestly cannot recommend her highly enough. She is a very generous and wise coach and I’m delighted to now be on her ‘Bootcamp to prosperity’.
After one week already, know the work I do here will be invaluable in helping me and my business grow and develop in the way it needs. It’s been a tough year for everyone in the wedding industry, we can mope and limit damage or we can get ‘on it’ and grow and take advantage of the space we’ve got, to make sure we’re on track. I’m glad I chose the latter and I recommend you do too.
Andrea Pearson- Wedding Photographer
The past few months have been tough working in the wedding industry and The Empowered Success Collective has been the most supportive and inspiring place to be. Lucy is an incredible coach and cares so much about everyone in the community.
During a time where everything felt so out of our control she made us feel empowered and motivated to do the work and elevate our businesses. The resilience challenge was just what I needed to refocus my business and continue to work towards attracting my ideal client and transforming my business into what I want it to be.
I have also thanks to Lucy started exploring other ways of making income which is really exciting! The community is full of members who are collaborative, talented and supportive and I look forward to being there. Lucy makes you feel like anything is possible and takes the time to get to know you and help you accomplish your goals. She is an open book and absolutely lovely and would recommend her to anyone looking to elevate their business.
Wendy Sherwood-Wedding Celebrant
Lucy is an amazing lady, not only does she plan the most beautiful weddings and is meticulous in every detail, but she also spends a substantial part of her working day training and mentoring wedding planners and others within the wedding industry. She is always upbeat, extremely friendly and very approachable, it’s been a pleasure working with Lucy. She is very giving of her time and energy. She ensures she gives clarity in in all her sessions and always leaves you feeling inspired and with a clear path ahead. I recommend Lucy 100% and have no doubt you will enjoy working with her too.
Laura Oldfield – Wedding and Event planner at Balloon Man Spain
I love Lucy’s approach to business. Health is just as important (if not more) she’s really made me see sense during lockdown. Valuing myself and my time a lot more now. Also I had a business 1 to 1 with Lucy making me really want to take my brand to the next level. We even have stepping stones in place. I will be working with Lucy again in the future. Lucy knows her stuff and I would highly recommend her to anyone who will listen to me!
Simone Kennedy Singing Wedding Celebrant
I have worked with Lucy before in her role as a Wedding planner and myself as a Singer. Fast forward a few years and I discovered she has another love and role as a Coach!
Lucy has come along when, Im at a pivotal point in my life and business.
I joined her book camp after joining her week long free challenge and she over delivered on that, so I thought I know if She’s my coach she will be amazing.
Thank you Lucy, for your warmth, commitment and genuine heart to see, Myself and others grow and excel personally and in our Wedding businesses.
Shannon Walsh- Walsh Films – Wedding Film Maker
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lucy over the past couple of weeks on her Transform & Prosper Bootcamp! And 5 weeks still to go! Already I feel more focussed and motivated in my business, more confident in myself and my skills in my field, and have the guts to start charging my worth!
Lucy is also a lovely person! Bubbly, friendly and genuine. She jumped on a quick call with me before I started her course, which was a really nice touch! I felt at ease with her and more engaged in the masterminds! I highly recommend working with her!
I felt completely lost in a new industry. I knew what I was doing in my field and had confidence in my offerings but not my prices. I didnt know how to navigate the wedding world. I also wanted business basics and foundations and seeing a coach that could offer me both in the same course was perfect.
Esztella- Hojas de Amour- Wedding Planner
My biggest reason I signed up for Transform & Prosper Course was to learn the real tough part of being a Wedding Planner. To Learn what is behind the scenes of making a successful wedding business- Goal Setting, Business Strategies, content Creation, understanding my Ideal cleint and how to create Passive Income.
When I found Lucy, I was almost ready to give up on having a wedding business. From the first moment of seeing her passion, knowledge and personality, the positive feelings she gave me- I said- I need her to help me!
The Transform and Prosper Course was more than I expected! I can finally understand the business side of having a wedding business. Not just the creative one.
I can’t thank Lucy enough for her patience, passion, knowledge and admirable attitude. You have inspired me a lot. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business to sign up for the course.
I highly recommend, this course to anyone that is struggling in this industry, not just wedding planners! Thank you Lucy x
Dulcie James- Wedding Celebrant
I wanted to get my wedding celebrancy off the ground but didnt know where to start. Social Media was my mountain to climb, how to plan content eluded me!
Thanks to Lucy’s course Transform and Prosper and 1-2-1 Coaching, I am now clear on this and many other key aspects of my Wedding Business.
I now have a definitive brand, great wedding services to offer my ideal clients and passive income ideas in creation. My Heart Goes out to Lucy. She is awesome!
Isabel Benchetrit- Wedding Photographer
I joined the Transform & Prosper Course to learn how to expand, book more clients through my website and Instagram and how to network with different wedding planners.
Within weeks of starting the course, I had new wedding enquiries through Instagram and new wedding planners and have taken bookings at my new higher prices!
What can I say about working with Lucy just wow wow wow!
Before I worked with Lucy I was just feeling really stuck. I knew of all the things I need to do, but I was unsure how and where to start. I was trying to do a little but if everything and getting no where fast.
Lucy helped me reframe some of my limiting beliefs in my one-to-one session, as well as giving me solid advice for my wedding planning business
I went into the 1-2-1 session feeling overwhelmed and uninspired, and came out with so much clarity and a complete business roadmap for the next year! I was so excited after our call and ready to work on the business again – so when Lucy opened the doors to the membership I signed up straight away.
I absolutely love the club! It’s a really friendly community and I’ve made a few friends in there, but also because the teachings are really useful! Currently I’m learning how to automate parts of the business to set me up for success.
Since the 1-2-1 my enquires have doubled and I haven’t even finished building my website!
Thank you Lucy for everything you’ve done thank you for a one-to-one session thank you for the club I love being in it I love being part of the community and just thank you for sharing yourself and your experience with us and being our champion. You’re great, thank you!

Oh and I got my first VIP client after adding VIP service to my offering after our 1-2-1
The fantastic support you’ve given the group Lucy has kept me motivated and going! The enthusiasm and encouragement was second to none! I really felt that as soon as I came on the course, you saw me as a as a wedding business owner, you saw my business, you have an idea of my vision. And you believe in all of us.
You can see where our businesses are going to be and you’re cheering us on. You’re like the coach at the finish line like go go go, don’t stop, keep going. And that has made me like Yes! I’m so supported!
The accountability, the support has been amazing! I feel like I can post in the group and everyone offers support. Anytime I’ve doubted myself, you’ve responded and you give me something great or answered my question, and that has made such a difference!!
OMG I started watching this video today as I was feeling a bit insecure about raising my prices….within 10 minutes I had a call from a bride in the UK who has booked full wedding planning start off and another that has just confirmed my venue search option (at my new higher rates!).
I am feeling on top of the world and so much more confident. Lucy Bennett thank you for giving me the boost I needed and the self worth I was lacking!!!!!
“I have reached out to Lucy in October when I have hit the brick wall and didn’t know how to move forward in my business. I knew I couldn’t sit still and I knew Autumn is very important for new clients in the wedding planning industry.
Lucy and I have worked for 2 hours in 1 to 1 session and it was exactly what I needed. A fresh pair of eyes on my website and social media, the reassurance that it is solid. We went through keeping a positive mind set, client recruiting process, social media marketing, blogging, and lot more. Lucy then kindly created an action plan for me which I use every day. I have since changed my language to appeal to my ideal client, I have unlevelled business right away, and raised my prices. I now develop business with luxury suppliers directly and feel comfortable. It has been a great session and I couldn’t have moved forward without it!” Martina, Wonderful Events
PS.: Just to share with you: I have been contacted by Mandarin Oriental in London, Como hotels around the world and 2 new venues in Warwickshire and Mallorca…. Excited 🙂 I also work with an events designer from Harvey Nichols…. she is my subcontractor , so definitely moving in the right direction… Thank you so much for your help
“I’m so glad that my 2020 journey had my path cross Lucy’s and lead me to join her amazing group.
I’ve gained so much from her already in such a short amount of time. I was privileged to have a 1-2-1 session with Lucy too which really helped me to have the confidence to successfully launch my own online membership The Luxury Cake Academy.
Sometimes you just find mentors you click with and I’ve not only found this with Lucy but with the community of fab ladies within her membership too! Looking forward to what 2021 will be!”
