MARRIAGE PROPOSAL, Wedding planner and designer UK

Your surprise marriage proposal and your wedding day will be the most memorable days of your life, capturing the essence of you both.

My aim is to support your vision by sourcing venues and suppliers giving you time back to do things you enjoy, and whilst I project manage, ensuring attention to detail and negotiate prices on your behalf, leaving you stress-free and inspired. 

I’m flexible to offer you a service based around what you need giving you value for money. So, if you have planned your day, book me to ‘co-ordinate on the day’ only, leaving you and your family to enjoy the day while I host guests and suppliers from dawn to dusk.

As an independent wedding planner, I can work alongside a venue coordinator as they focus on the venue only; that way all the little touches are not forgotten.

With a no commission ethos, I do not take money from suppliers, so you can be rest assured when I recommend a supplier, it is for all the right reasons!\

Based in Somerset my team provide wedding planners, and wedding assistants when the guest list is higher in numbers, where we work across the UK.

Lets chat today to see if we meet your tone and style from experienced planners?

We used Amanda-Louise for our wedding in Devon in September. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She was totally calm and supremely organised which kept us both calm through the months before the wedding. She has really great contacts and all the recommendations she gave us were excellent. I would not hesitate to book her. I would just say, get in quickly as she's understandably in demand!!!

Amanda is amazing. She made my dream proposal a reality. The decorations, the organisation, the venue, the suprise proposal everything went smoothly without a hitch. Amanda made it the best day for me and my fiancee. Thank you Amanda!!

Adelowo Adeleye - marriage proposal Devon March 2023

So well organised and super helpful to have on the day! I recently worked as a videographer at a wedding that Amanda and her team coordinated on the day and I must say she really helped make the day what it was! As a videographer I obviously attend a lot of weddings and see how they run, Amanda and her team really helped make sure that everything ran smoothly at what could have been a potentially chaotic day due to the large number of guests attending. Right from the moment of arrival everything was really well organised and prepared, everything and everyone was where they should be, the ceremony conducted by Amanda was lovely and the rest of the day couldn't have gone better. The team worked in a really efficient but subtle way to make sure everything was perfect and were super helpful and flexible with any additional requests throughout the day. I would highly recommend Amanda and her team to help plan and coordinate your big day! Look forward to working with her again in the future.

A massive thank you to Amanda at Somerset Wedding Day Dog Chaperone Service. We wouldnt have been able to have our 2 little sausage dogs Lola & Cali at our wedding without Amanda's help and flexibility. You were so kind and helpful and allowed us to have the most perfect day with the dogs popping in and out throughout the day to ensure we wasnt overwhelmed and the dogs werent either. You kept our kind at ease with our pre zoom meeting and sent up lovely pictures and updates after the wedding of the day they had with you. We achieved the photographs we had our hearts set on and we couldnt have done it without you! Thank you so much for taking care of them for us.

Thank you Amanda-Louise for helping me create an exclusive weekend occasion to propose to my girlfriend. I appreciated your updates and involvement. She said yes! All the staff were amazing, the ship you booked was also magnificent.

Michael Millard - Marriage Proposal Event - Scotland

COVID forced us to have a split wedding (21/3/20) and reception. (15/9/21). When it came to the reception we required a celebrant to pull things together. We were both stressed and had little idea how to proceed. My wife came across Amanda Louise. What a find! She instantly took hold, guiding us as to the available options and filled us with confidence pulling together a bespoke ceremony that was perfect on the day. On the big day, she arrived well-presented and in good time. A true gem.

Steve Challis Groom - Cotswold Celebrant Wedding Ceremony

Amanda is a above all a lovely lady with a friendly, approachable and totally understanding manner. She delivered our renewal of vows ceremony on Exmoor in exactly the way we requested. We wanted a simple, no frills ceremony with just the 2 of us. It was lighthearted, fun and very emotional. We would highly recommend her services.

Jo & Pete (Space Detectives) Renewal of Vows Celebrant Ceremony - April 2022 Exmoor National Park

Thank you Amanda for making our day for the twins Naming and 1st birthday so special and personal. The service was just as we wanted it to be and all your suggestions beforehand were so helpful. I would highly recommend Amanda, she really helped to make a very special memory for us and our family.

Caroline & Ed - Baby Naming for Twins June 2022 Somerset

We just wanted to thank you again for yesterday, it was such a lovely ceremony and we all thought you made the day. Thank you so much, With kind regards

Peter & Sophie, Bride & Groom - Taunton Somerset Wedding December

Amanda is the most lovely celebrant & we couldn't be more happier that we had chosen her to be a part of our big wedding day which was in October 2021 :) With just days away from our big day, Amanda worked hard in order to prioritise getting our wedding script written up for our ceremony in 1 week which she did & did it perfectly & we are so grateful for all that she has done for us :) She made me & my partner feel very comfortable on the day, we had lots of banter & felt that she captured our love story perfectly & we loved all the other elements which were used in our ceremony from the lighting of candles to remember loved ones & the mixing of unity sand. All of the family & guests commented on how lovely & professional Amanda is & she truly was like one of our family. Me & my partner would just like to say that we would highly recommend Amanda for her services as she is a wonderful celebrant & lovely person all round & can guarantee that you will treasure some great memories. Thank you again Amanda xx

Shalima & Sukru, Bride & Groom from Dorset - Bournemouth Wedding October

We booked Amanda-Louise to be our celebrant and what an amazing day it was! Amanda’s communication is second to none and I never felt as though I had to chase for any responses or updates, which made the experience stress free. On the day of our wedding, Amanda greeted me before I went into the ceremony room and assured me everything from the layout to the guests arrival had gone to plan and we were ready to start the ceremony. We wanted to include traditions from mine and my partners heritage (British and Greek) and Amanda captured the balance perfectly. My partners family were amazed to see Greek traditions included in our ceremony, which gave it that special touch. The ceremony (completely written by Amanda) was so personal and was everything we could have hoped for. Amanda was absolutely brilliant and went above and beyond for me and Zakk. Amanda does a variety of ceremonies, so we will definitely be booking her in the future. Thank you so much for making our day simply perfect.

Chelsea & Zakk, Bride & Groom from Greece & UK - Wedding in Somerset August

Thank you very much for sending and emailing the funeral service script. You have been so helpful during this whole process and I would recommend you and your services to everyone. Take care. Kind regards

Lynn Mann - Funeral Celebrant Services - September

Bespoke ceremony our guests loved - Amanda-Louise did a great job of working with us to learn our stories and what we wanted from the ceremony and incorporate them into a personal script. She worked with us right up until the day before the wedding making last minute tweaks and adjustments. Our guests called out how unique the ceremony was, and appreciated the good humor she injected.

Kaitlyn & Theo, Bride & Groom from USA - Wedding July in Devon

I just wanted to thank you for sending through your ceremony script for dad's funeral. It was presented so beautifully and the personal letters to us all was a really thoughtful touch. I know mom is great full too, and she thought you did a wonderful job of presenting the ceremony and celebrating dad's remarkable life. He truly was one of lifes funny and happy people. In addition your support and gentle manner on the day of dad's funeral hasn't gone unnoticed either. Thank you for introducing yourself to my son Louie, and offering him some reassuring words as well as noticing the scarf he was wearing for his grandad. Warm regards,

Donna Webber - Funeral Celebrant Services - September

I was a photographer at a beautifully led wedding ceremony by Amanda in Dorset back in October. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, making it very easy for me to get the images I needed to make sure my clients were very happy! Amanda allowed me to get in close to get those intimate shots and unique angles. She also gave me a very good briefing as I was hired at last minute and it was far from a traditional wedding ceremony! I would highly recommend Amanda as a wedding celebrant if you are looking for someone professional, caring and will make your ceremony very rememberable :)

Ben Braybrooke Photographer - Review of Amanda-Louise Knight Wedding Celebrant Services - Bournemouth October

The wedding vows really got to us, very well written and they revealed to me how important they both are to each other – Chris & Emily. The wedding ceremony was so special, it was so nice to have both your heritages incorporated - Steve & Nicky WOW, Amanda-Louise the speeches & the emotions – such a beautiful and memorable wedding service - Natasha. Loved the speeches, brought tears to our eyes. Seeing the knots being tied and the honey and walnut ritual was great to see. Such a wonderful ceremony - the Skinner Family. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and personal. I loved the tying of the knot and how all the family was involved - Lisa Mason & Phil Nutman

Wedding Guests – Somerset Wedding August {Celebrant and Toastmaster )

Wedding Guests – Cotswolds Wedding July {Wedding Celebrant and Evening Toastmaster}

Thank you for your pack with Dad's service details. It was presented brilliantly and was great to read over. Thank you again for your touch on things. Unfortunately you (as a Professional Funeral Celebrant) are someone I hope not to see again in the near future but if I do, I know the ceremony is in the best of hands x

Dean - Funeral Celebrant Services - September

Amanda was the perfect celebrant. She managed to write our ceremony after just couple conversations & a questionnaire. She accommodated all our requests & guided us when we were unsure. We felt she captured our story, our personalities & our love of each other perfectly with lots light-hearted humour and just enough romance for us. On the day Amanda was warm & helpful She made us both feel comfortable, and she fitted in as part of the family.

Mollie and Matt, Bride & Groom from Somerset (Owners of Quantock Marquees & Country Bumpkins Caterers) - Cotswolds Wedding July {Wedding Celebrant & Evening Toastmaster}

I wanted to say how lovely the service was. I loved what you said, and it was just right for Dad. You were so professional, considerate, and caring and both me and Mum felt looked after by yourself and by the Funeral Directors Friendship & Sons.

Heather - Funeral Celebrant Services - July

Your vows really got to us. Very well written and they revealed to me how important you both are to each other.

Chris & Emily

It was a pleasure to work alongside Amanda-Louise on a recent wedding. She was very well organised, calm and professional throughout. Thank you!!

Tom Elleray Professional Equipment Wedding Supplier - July

At a time when as a family we were in the depths of sorrow at our loss Amanda - Louise arrived. It was as if the weight of trying to make sure that my husbands life was remembered and honoured was completely understood by Amanda and we all relaxed. Our memories were brought to life in the service and I found it such a comfort. We all felt totally safe opening our hearts to her and were so impressed in the skills she has and empathy she has to understand how we all felt.

Claire Woodland - Funeral Celebrant Services - April

Amanda is a loyal, empathetic and conscientious person. She gives 100% to any task assigned to her, and will execute each task with professionalism and dedication.

Lesley Scott - Review of Event Planner Services

An enthusiastic and vibrant person who will bring laughter to any celebration

Staff Sgt Lisa Leighton - Review Event Planner Services

I have had the great pleasure of working with Amanda-Louise on several occasions and she is such a fun, charismatic Celebrant that would enhance any celebration, be it happy or sad. She’s a delight to work with and beautifully creative. Using her great life skills and experience, she relishes in crafting a fabulous ceremony that will be so personal to you, whether you’re looking for serious or fun, you won’t be disappointed.

Tracey Schoales Midlands Celebrant Review of Amanda-Louise Knight West Country Wedding Celebrant

A friend recommended Amanda-Louise to be the celebrant at my mother’s funeral. Like most people in my position I found the prospect of organising not only a funeral but my own mother’s funeral during Covid19 times. But Amanda-Louise was absolutely amazing. She was so caring, compassionate, understanding and most of all friendly. She listened intently to the type of funeral service we required (I didn’t know there were so many options), made notes, asked questions to get to know not only us but my mother too – consequently offered suggestions. The result was amazing if you could say a funeral was perfect – this was genuinely it. I can’t put into words how grateful I am to Amanda – Louise’s professional and compassionate approach to a very emotional event. Whatever the event if I could employ Amanda-Louise again I would have no hesitation whatsoever.

Julie Parker - Funeral Celebrant Services - August

I have now directed three funeral ceremonies with Amanda-Louise, who has a gift for personalising a ceremony with such enthusiasm, compassion and grace, always with fine attention to detail

Mark Kingston-James, Minehead, Somerset Hedley Price Funeral Director Review of Amanda-Louise Knight Funeral Celebrant Services

I cannot praise Amanda enough. Clearly professional in her role she brought direction and comfort in equal measure, and yes, some humour to a very special Celebration of Life. A separate session with the young children attending gave them a role in the proceedings and an understanding of the meaning of the meeting. I recommend her services for any celebration, happy or sad.

Dudley Price - Funeral Celebrant Services - October

Beautiful service for my late husband John. Amanda did him proud, she took the service with feeling and respect. Thank you Amanda.‍

Pippa Buckner - Funeral Celebrant Services - November

Amanda had the difficult job of creating a beautiful ceremony that brought together many different parts of our lost loved ones life. She rung up and spoke to each sibling to get stories and details needed for the ceremony. I never felt more at ease knowing she was the celebrant for the funeral. What she came up with was beautiful and she treated my dad with the upmost respect and honour. She made a bad day manageable and it was simply beautiful.

Hollie Coles - Funeral Celebrant Services - January

Amanda-Louise was from the outset very friendly, caring and thoughtful. Such a good service provided to us in our time of grief and the service was more than we than we could have expected. I feel like I have know her for years and that if I ever need to talk she will be there for me.
