When your beau pops the question, he not only proposes to spend the rest of his life with you, he also nominates you to organise and conduct the biggest event of your life and then watch it play out in front of an audience of hundreds – made up of your closest friends and entire family. No pressure. Oh, and yes if you can carry on doing your normal day job at the same time Maestro, that would be great.
Sometimes it’s just not realistic to put that much pressure on yourself, your partner and your family. And that’s where a wedding planner comes in brandishing an armoury of event experience, cost spreadsheets and suppliers.
It doesn’t mean any of your creativity need be compromised – you can simply save yourself a lot of time and have someone else take on the lion’s share of the leg work and stress.
And I think that’s where today’s supplier Charlotte Elise really comes into her own. She is not only a meticulous, unflappable organiser, who is deft at dealing with family dynamics and managing different personalities, she is also a brilliant listener. The relationship between wedding planner and bride is paramount. And Charlotte understands that for the day to be successful, she needs to maintain a clear understanding of what the bride envisages and then tailor suppliers and recommendations to that tune. And keeps that level of communication going throughout.
In fact this communication is equally, if not more, important if you’re not actually that creative at all when it comes to the visual side of things. Charlotte brings her own immaculate sense of style, her intuition and a natural leaning towards the personal touches to help find the look that represents you best as a couple. You can trust her opinions and be confident that the “final product” will be gorgeous, tasteful, and elegant.
Charlotte Elise, you could say, was destined to become a wedding planner. She watched Father of the Bride on repeat throughout her formative years, totally mesmerised by this awesome all American wedding, complete with swans waddling around the tulip borders, a dreamy marquee and, of course, she couldn’t help but be inspired by the fabulous, detail-led wedding planner Fronk who pulled it all together. With this charismatic mentor in mind, Charlotte started her career in a luxury wedding venue in Cheshire and subsequently, not so much cut her teeth but polished them working with other top wedding planners. The obvious next step was to start her own company.
And of course no wedding planner walks alone – Charlotte has created and nurtured a fabulous network of the best suppliers in the industry. While still based in Cheshire her services cover the North of England and way beyond.
When reading testimonials of Charlotte Elise Weddings – a few words stand out – precise, meticulous, super-organised, ahead of the game, professional. These are precisely the things you need when you are putting your wedding plans into someone else’s hands. The reassurance that the day’s program will be executed with panache, while a fallback plan is all ready to kick into action if it’s needed.
I don’t know about you but I love an über-detailed approach and Charlotte has it all. Not only does she guide you to the biggest day – but is there at the event itself making sure it all runs seamlessly.In the background you might find her running through a minute-by-minute detailed running order that is shared with all suppliers and personally pulling all aspects of the planning together – even the less glamorous details from lighting fires, aligning your gold votives or directing parking. She brings a dedication to finesse that can only create a refined and super-slick event.
