Some couples know exactly what they want for their wedding, others don’t know where to begin besides a few overarching ideas. Some don’t have the time to plan. Others just hate the thought of tackling it all themselves.
Whichever category you fit into I’m here to listen, read between the lines and bring your vision into focus before we get started.
Your planning is collaborative. I’ll offer as much guidance and support as your need, but the decisions are always yours.
Once we have a direction in mind, the fun really starts! I’ll use my expertise and love of seeing an idea grow into something tangible to create a wonderfully atmospheric affair….talented suppliers that suit your needs, deliciously indulgent food, musicians that your guests love, little details combined with wow factor impacts.

If you would like to know more or think I could be the right planner for you then do get in touch, you can drop me an email on email@example.com, use my contact form or give me a ring on +447732267316.
From here we'll book in a requirements consultation to chat further, discuss your vision and I can give you more information on how I can assist in bringing your wedding to life.
You'll leave this conversation with an understanding of how I can elevate your wedding day and planning experience.
Hopefully you leave our call excited to move forward with Weddings by Emily Charlotte. At this stage there is a small amount of admin required; I'll send you a Booking Contract and an invoice for the initial booking fee. Once this is completed the fun can begin...
I believe this is the moment couples really begin to feel like it's happening...you're getting married!
After our discussions I'll have a good understanding of what you have in mind. I'll send you an initial proposal document filled with venue suggestions that are suited to your requirements, price point and guest numbers, but most importantly are going to start giving you all the feels!
This is a two way process, so if you have already come across venues then just let me know; I'll then advise on their suitability for your day.
We'll aim to shortlist 3-5 strong contenders to visit in person with my colleagues.
This stage makes me excited for you! It's time to view your venues in person (if that's what you hope to do). Where possible I will accompany you to your shortlisted venues, answer any questions you may have and generally help you envision how your day could flow at each venue. You should finish our viewings knowing where your wedding will take place - let me assure you, this is the best feeling!
After this we'll finalise the booking with the venue. You officially have a wedding date!
Years of experience combined with a strive for perfection means I have an extensive list of not only breathtaking properties but also accomplished suppliers to share with you.
I’ll make suggestions based on your preferences and requirements and when you’re ready to move forward I’ll manage those bookings for you. Already have suppliers in mind that you’d like to work with? That’s okay too; it's your wedding day and your choices.
We'll typically work through in order of priority and preference to you until we have booked all the services and team needed to give you your dream day.
If you're planning a legally recognised civil or religious ceremony then navigating the documentation process can sometimes feel a bit daunting.
When the time comes I will guide your through the process one easy step at a time, so all your documentation is completed correctly and in a timely manner.
Weddings are expensive and costs can easily spiral. Trust me...once you're immersed in the beautiful world of weddings there is a lot of temptation to have everything you want, saying yes without much consideration for the overall spend. This is okay if you're flexible or if you're aware and comfortable with your ongoing expenditure. What we do not want is any nasty surprises further down the line, so to ensure this doesn't happen I track your spend throughout, including deposits paid, balance due and key payment dates. You can have access to this document whenever you need it.
As I've said before, logistical planning is my thing.
I'll create two schedules for you.
1 - your supplier facing schedule; arrival times for each supplier, service start and end times etc. This is the behind-the-scenes that helps to ensure the smooth running of your event.
2 - your guest facing schedule; this is the overall flow of your day: ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner, speeches, cake cutting, first dance etc. Designed to keep your day on track whilst also allowing for the natural progression of events.
As much goes into the aesthetics of an EC event as it does the logistics. When it comes to flowers, tablescapes and decor I can provide suggestions to give your wedding wow factor. Taking inspiration from your venue and natural surroundings and combining it with any colour scheme preferences that you have.
Some couples have a strong sense of styling in mind, for others a little more guidance and help to visualise is needed. Whichever one is you, we'll work together to ensure your wedding looks as amazing as it feels.
The day you have been waiting for is finally here!
At least one member of the EC team, depending on logistics and guest numbers, will be present at your wedding from set up through to the end of event, or an agreed time, to ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible.
You can relax and enjoy yourself knowing your day is in safe, experienced, hands.
"Honestly, thank you so so much for everything, Emily! You went above and beyond with 2 extra years of postponements and last minute changes and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with all of the suppliers you recommended for our big day too! Everything was perfect - even the thunderstorms in the end.
Not only could we not have done the wedding day without you coordinating it all and making plan B look amazing but I absolutely could not have done the planning and budgeting without you"
"Our guests were blown away with the venue, food music and flowers and it was just magical!
We feel you were able to read our requests perfectly and we always felt everything was so easy.
Thank you for your time and patience"
"From the outset, Emily was diligent, conscientious and really took into consideration our wishes for our ‘dream’ wedding as well as our budget! Emily was meticulous in her planning, to the point that on the day, the wedding went completely smoothly and we could just relax and take in the day."
The wedding was truly wonderful – Emily found us a perfect venue and picked great vendors, from the flower arrangers to the photographers. She even brought the sun! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding and we’ll never forget our wonderful wedding day."
"Emily was our wedding planner for our magical wedding in August 2017.
We could not have done it without her and she went above and beyond all of our expectations. She is organised, methodical and a pleasure to work with.
We not only had the wedding of our dreams but also gained a new friend in the process"
