About Me

Carlie Northwood
Wedding Planner & Designer

Hello! I'm Carlie - a wedding planner that specialises in creating Destination Weddings right here in the UK. Or as I like to call them, Staycation Weddings!

Dreams into Plans Weddings and Events was created out of a passion for celebrating all of life's special moments. I have always been an old-fashioned romantic and love everything about weddings plus I wanted to put my exceptional organisational and time-management skills to good use and transfer them to this wonderful industry.

When I got engaged in 2018 and started planning my own dream wedding in Lake Garda, I knew from the start that finding the perfect resident wedding planner would be essential to pull it off. Then the Global Pandemic hit and forced us to consider a total change of plan last minute - which then lead to a light bulb moment for me as a Wedding Planner!

I aspire to use my personal experience to help other couples create, design and plan a truly unique and personal experience by providing advice, guidance and support in this new concept of staycation weddings.

A little more about me...

I love to travel both internationally and across the UK. Finding new places to explore is one of my favourite things to do!

I have a massive obsession with French Bulldogs! My frenchie, Luna is my sidekick and follows me wherever I go. I'm also a registered volunteer for the French Bulldog Saviours.

I have a major sweet tooth and Salted Caramel Ice cream is my weakness!
