About Me

My love for all things weddings and events definitely stemmed from watching Father of the Bride every single Saturday from a young age. Franc, the wedding planner, although definitely eccentric was humorous, organised and created a gorgeous marquee wedding decorated in glistening lights and adorned with flowers! Who wouldn’t want to do that as a career?!

In the past I have worked for a local luxury wedding venue as a wedding and events planner and learnt invaluable knowledge and experience about customer service and how important it is to have everything meticulously planned whilst still having a plan B! In recent years I have worked with top wedding planners in the industry and therefore a couple of years ago I felt it was the right time to use my organisational, professional and communicative skills to establish Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events.

Based in Cheshire, I plan luxury weddings and events throughout the U.K. as well as destination weddings abroad. We have worked with fantastic suppliers all over the world and no wedding or event is too big or too small. My creative, personal approach to each wedding and event I plan mean that your ideas and dreams come to life without exceeding your budget.

With Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events, you can be rest assured that you will get the event of your dreams – putting your ideas together and adding a professional touch. Any event you choose to plan with us will be stress-free meaning you can relax and enjoy the build up to the event as well as confidence on the day that everything will go according to the precise plan.


  • Charlotte Wade-Smith, Bride (Wedding Planning Client)
    Charlotte is in our eyes, a planner extraordinaire; helping to successfully execute our wedding at Knowsley Hall despite us not confirming the date or venue until 7 weeks prior to the actual day. We hired Charlotte to help coordinate our wedding from start to finish, and could not have asked for anything more. She organised everything from meetings with suppliers, down to negotiating prices, and arranging everything (and everyone) on the day. We never doubted for a second that everything would run smoothly, and true to form she executed the day to perfection. Charlotte did an excellent job of taking control of the various suppliers and performers we had coming throughout the day; and all agreed that the transition from day to night was seamless. There was not one point in my day where I had to think about anything (or anyone) else except myself and my husband which really made for a surprisingly relaxing experience. Long story short – we feel, and all our guests agree that Charlotte is largely a part of why our wedding was absolutely unforgettable for all the right reasons. We would highly recommend hiring Charlotte to help with any and every aspect of a wedding. For me having her there on the day to organise the finer details and suppliers - something you really don't want to think about (or have time to) - was truly priceless.

    I have really enjoyed working with Charlotte. I find Charlotte to always be 'super-organised' and ahead of the game and believe she will be a great asset to all her Wedding and Event clients. She works quickly and efficiently and is particularly adept at researching and liaising with venues and suppliers always striving to meet and exceed clients' needs and expectations.

    It’s not often I find myself working with a wedding planner - but that’s a shame because I’d happily work with Charlotte Elise again! Usually, the wedding event is controlled by myself and the venue wedding manager - and sometimes it’s clear that I’m the more experienced one with a better handle on what a wedding event should look and feel like! So it was a complete pleasure to be able to think about nothing but the photography at Charlotte and Ian’s fabulous Knowsley Hall wedding as Charlotte Elise’s professional skills meant that everything was in place and working. She remained calm and unflappable all day, from start to finish. I’d highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a wedding professional to take all the stress out of the planning.

  • Supersession, Band

    Charlotte Booked our 4 piece band for a wedding she was planning at Knowsley Hall. We've never played such a prefectly planned wedding! Charlotte had thought of everything, all of the suppliers knew exactly how we fitted into the day, and everything ran extremely smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with Charlotte - Highly recommended!

  • Katey Burke, Blue Orchid Florist

    Having worked with Charlotte as a supplier, I have to say she's been fantastic. Her attention to detail and organisation is everything every bride/groom needs. Thank you Charlotte, it's been a pleasure.

  • Amy Turner, Photographer
    Charlotte was the co-ordinator at a wedding we photographed at Church Farm, Wirral. She was brilliant, not only on the day but also in the lead up to the wedding, making sure we had all the information we needed. We really hope to work with her again.
  • James Ajebon, Photographer
    I had the pleasure of working with Charlotte at a wedding I was photographing last Saturday. She was amazing to work with, she worked so hard to make sure the day ran smoothly for the bride and groom. She was professional throughout the day and made sure the day ran smoothly without being bossy! I would highly recommend her if you're needing a wedding planner!
  • Rebecca Smith, Bride
    I am so glad we picked Charlotte and the on the day package she offers for our wedding day. Charlotte made me feel totally relaxed on the day as I knew she had everything under control. Nothing was to much trouble for her and any issues I had in the run up to the wedding I knew I could just pick up the phone and she would have the answer. Thanks again Charlotte for helping my our day perfect Mr and Mrs Smith
  • Katie Beveridge, Bride
    Charlotte came on board to plan my wedding a mere 8 weeks before the big day! And I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. I am not a very wedding orientated person and although I was excited I wasn't relishing in the actual planning, she however was a star she gave me direction and motivation as well as inspiration. The venue were useless and there were a number of aesthetic problems that needed to be solved (ongoing construction work that ruined the appearance of the main room). Charlotte acted as liaison and dealt with the rather rude "wedding planners" at the venue so I didn't have to. She also put a spreadsheet together detailing the finances and suppliers as well as liaising and sourcing suppliers ranging from venue dressers to magicians!! Her amazing organisation skills paired with her keen eye for detail and delightful manner ensured I was stress free leading up to the wedding and on the day. Her sheer hard work meant that the venue, the tables, the cake and all the suppliers were in place I did not lift a finger on the day or day before she was truly a machine!! I would highly recommend Charlotte to anyone planning a wedding she is incredibly talented at what she does and she was a joy to work with. Thank you so much Charlotte you made our day incredible and you were such a great support to me throughout I wish you every success and that I will be seeing you soon at friends weddings!! xxx

    Charlotte was so organized and so meticulous, she ensured every detail for our big day was absolute perfection! My husband and I live in the US and were planning a destination wedding in Europe. Charlotte planned a 5-day stay for all of our guests at a beautiful villa in Italy, Casa Cornacchi. She found the best-of-the-best vendors, dealt with me changing my mind 100 times (with absolute calm and ease) and created the most beautiful 5 days! She is so accommodating and made this experience completely stress-free for us and all of our guests!! I would highly recommend Charlotte to any and all brides!!
  • Anna Bonnington, Bride
    Charlotte was absolutely amazing! We couldn't have asked for someone better to help with the lead up and running of our special day. Charlotte is incredibly organised, helpful, dedicated, humble and creative. She did an amazing job contacting all our suppliers and giving us a run through of the to the minute. Charlotte worked tirelessly on the day, going above and beyond to ensure everything went perfectly. Charlotte thinks of everything and is willing to go the extra mile. We didn't hestiate to trust her with anything. We knew when we left our beautfiful wedding marquee the evening before that it was left in good hands.
    We are so thankful and glad Charlotte was involved in our wedding and we would thoroughly recommned her to anyone. We can't praise her enough! Thank you so much Charlotte x
  • Rebecca Porter, Bride
    I decided to book Charlotte for the "on-the-day management" package when I realised I had planned a wedding with more than 20 suppliers and no-one on the day to bring it all together. After my initial meeting with Charlotte I could see straight away that she was organised and professional, and most importantly, unflappable! From day one she went above and beyond my expectations. Charlotte contacted all of my suppliers in the run-up to the wedding to make the final arrangements for the day and agree a running order so that everyone was clear on what was happening and when. This was incredibly useful for communicating the order of events with suppliers and also meant the wedding party knew what to expect on the day. Charlotte was very generous with her time and commitment, attending planning meetings with the venue owner, coming to the farm on the day before the wedding to help set up and then even helping to tidy up on the day after! The most valuable help however was on the day itself – I was free to get on with getting ready with my bridesmaids without having to worry about a thing. Charlotte was at the farm from dawn right through until the last guest left the party and she worked tirelessly all day to make sure each part went without a hitch. I can honestly say that not one single thing went wrong on the day and a lot of that is down to Charlotte. I didn’t have to worry about a thing and I was able to just relax and enjoy seeing our friends and family having a great time! We can’t thank Charlotte enough for her support in making the wedding of our dreams! Whilst I put a lot of effort into the planning and decisions, it would all have been wasted had it not been for Charlotte to bring it all together on the day and I would encourage anyone considering this to go for it – it will be the best wedding decision you will make!
