About Me

Charlotte Dodd

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 worked for a local luxury wedding venue as a wedding and events manager 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 the years leading up to establishing Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events I worked with top wedding planners in the industry. After gaining copious amounts of experience working on different weddings in both the UK and Europe I felt it was the right time to use my organisational, professional and communicative skills to establish my own company and therefore nearly five years ago Charlotte Elise Weddings and Events was created!

Based in Cheshire, we are now a team of wedding planners planning 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. Our creative, personal approach to each wedding and event we 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 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!!

From our first conversation to my final meeting Charlotte was amazing. She dealt with all suppliers, venue bookings etc that took the stress of everything which felt like a weight had been lifted. Even when I wanted things changed last minute literally the week before my wedding Charlotte sourced them for me and everything went to plan. In all our meetings Charlotte was so professional and came up with some great ideas. I was so nervous leading upto my big day but Charlotte made us feel so comfortable. On the day she worked with the venue and everything was perfect I wish I could do it all again xx

We cannot speak highly enough of Charlotte. From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands with the planning of our wedding. Charlotte’s passion and dedication for what she does is unparalleled, her attention to detail is amazing and she really listens to you. She was able to make our vision of our dream wedding come true and we felt on the same page every step of the way. She is a true professional and on top of that really lovely to work with. Will miss planning with you!

I can't recommend Charlotte highly enough!! After setting our wedding date and venue (in a tipi at home). Without a wedding venue manager, we decided we would need someone to manage our weekend wedding, to take any stresses or potential issues off myself, my husband to be or anyone in the wedding party. From the minute I spoke to Charlotte on the phone, to discuss at length the service we were looking for, and the service she offered, we knew that she would be perfect for the job! From the moment of instructing her we were super impressed with everything she did for us. So many jobs were taken off us, and Charlotte was just amazing. From sorting the whole weekend timetable, to liaising with all suppliers to ensure everything was planning to perfection, Charlotte was involved with every aspect. She inspired us with some great ideas and was fundamental to our wedding being the special occasion it was. We just wish we could do it all again!! Thank you for all of your help, advice and enthusiasm Charlotte, it was hugely appreciated xx

Recently we were privileged to conduct a destination Sikh Wedding at Lake Como Italy. Charlotte and her team from Charlotte Elise Wedding and Events were the lead planners for the grand 3-day event at a Villa in Italy. Over 150 guests from the UK descended at this exotic location. Charlotte and her team were proactive in aspects of the wedding. They were very easy to work with, had an extremely professional demeanor, always present and on the ball, and were very helpful during the entire set up process. We highly recommend their superb services! Don't hesitate to utilize their services to coordinate your destination wedding anywhere in Europe. Thanks again Charlotte, Hanna, and team.
Emma Meyers, Bride
From the moment we met Charlotte we knew that she would run our wedding perfectly. We planned our wedding ourselves in a marquee on a field without any 'venue organiser' we were looking for someone to manage everything on the day so that we didn't have to worry. Charlotte was great she helped find a few of our last suppliers and liaised with them all when they would be on site etc, she was always available to talk to when we needed advice and helped so much the week of the wedding coming up to help set up the marquee and running round to collect things, nothing was too much trouble. The day was perfect and Charlotte helped in how smoothly the day ran even with our challenging set up.
Brittany Steinmiller, Bride
From day one of speaking with Charlotte, I knew she would be the person to help our wedding visions become a reality! We instantly connected over our love for the Father of the Bride film and how I envisioned the style to be reminiscent of the movie with a modern approach, she knew right away what I meant. Charlotte’s attention to detail, reassurance that no issue is too big or too small to overcome, was also able to be our voice by ensuring that our needs and wants were met by all suppliers, and her passion to strive for the greatest end product is next to none!!! All of these things and more took an immense pressure off of our shoulders, especially living in Los Angeles and wanting a Cheshire wedding, not to mention the on the day of the wedding sense of relief to have Charlotte there by our side making sure all facets went to plan. Thank you times a million Charlotte for all of your help!
Adam Tuomey, Groom
Charlotte is amazing! The best wedding planner ever! She ran our wedding day magnificently. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her and she is so quick at responding to any queries you may have, we truly did feel supported with our wedding day. Charlotte worked tirelessly on the day from 8am until the end. We simply could not have done it without her. We would unhesitatingly recommend her. Put simply a professional and the best! Thank you Charlotte xx

Charlotte and her team did an amazing job for us on our wedding day. She managed to make our dreams a reality and it was so wonderful to see everything come together on our weekend in Italy. We managed to have a stress free event and really enjoy ourselves. She was there for us from day one and made our wedding so special. We were really happy with the suppliers and everyone that worked on the wedding.
Jessica & Mark Kueres
I can’t recommend Charlotte highly enough! She was brilliant in the lead up to the day co-ordinating all of the suppliers and the day ran perfectly which was all down to Charlotte’s attention to detail and organisation skills. This was the best money we spent when organising the wedding as Charlotte removed all the stress from the day so we could enjoy ourselves. Thanks so much!
Joanne & David Gardner
When we got engaged I didn’t think I had a vision for what we wanted for our wedding. That’s why I searched for a wedding planner to help, I’m SO glad I did. From the first meeting with Charlotte I knew I was in safe hands, she really understood what it was I wanted to achieve when I didn’t really know it myself. From start to finish she was wonderful and went above and beyond. Many see a wedding planner as an extravagance but they really shouldn’t, it took all the stress off us especially on our special day as Charlotte co-ordinated everything and we could just enjoy ourselves. Thank you Charlotte. Xx
Kate & Nick Steele
Charlotte, we don’t know where we can begin to thank you for making our wedding day perfect in every single way. It was seamless from start to finish and we couldn’t have picked a better wedding planner! From the moment we met you, you were really professional and we knew we could 100% place our trust in you. You completely took the stress away and reassured us throughout. Thank you for everything, especially for organising the very last minute details on the week of the wedding, which were dealt with instantly and made all the difference. We could not recommend Charlotte enough, for anybody thinking of hiring a wedding planner don’t look any further!! Lots of love the new Mr & Mrs Steele xxx
