I'm Emily Charlotte! A Sussex based Destination Wedding Planner and Coordinator, specialising in weddings in Italy.
No doubt you're feeling that choosing the right wedding planner is just as hard as choosing the perfect wedding dress or the dream venue? And understandably so! It's a big decision as it's likely that we'll spend a (fun filled) year working together, so it's important that you feel confident that l'm the wedding planner best suited to creating one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
My Experience and Passion
My life in the wedding industry began in a bridal shop. I loved everything about working there - getting to know the brides, hearing their plans and sharing their excitement for their big day.
This was temporarily paused when I took a 'sensible' position of project management at a well-regarded investment bank; whilst I can now say I fully understand the pressures faced when working a demanding city job and I learnt the importance of attention to detail, (the smallest things really can make the biggest difference - in banking and in weddings!) I knew that the world of investment banking was not for me. I regularly compared my days in project management to planning the biggest project of all - a wedding! I missed the time spent with my brides and longed for the excitement felt in the wedding industry. So I took my strengths and my passions, got the best wedding planner business mentor I could find, and a year later Weddings By Emily Charlotte was born; I haven't looked back since and can now honestly say I LOVE my job!
I pride myself in offering my couples a personal experience. From the very beginning I focus on getting to know you, both as a couple and individually. As your wedding planner it's key that I understand and share your vision, no matter how big or small, in order to deliver on your event to a high standard.
An important principal for me is that this is your wedding. My aim is to make the planning as stress free and enjoyable as possible; this is a time in your life that should be fun and exciting! At all times you will remain in control of your wedding - I'm here to share my knowledge, make recommendations and ensure you enjoy your wedding experience from beginning to end.
