what i do
01. What makes us special

Our professional and friendly dog chaperone service allows the important furry member of your family to become your honorary guest who can walk you down the aisle, be your best man, or act as your ring bearer.

I take the stress out of having your dog at your wedding so you can enjoy your day whilst having your pet greet you as newlyweds and be there for your wedding photos too.

02. Professional personal service

I offer a personalised service for those who would welcome having their four-legged friend at their big day of celebration. I take great care for your dog like we do our own.

We are a professional and family run team, with over 50 years living alongside small and large dogs. We are DBS checked for your peace of mind and have pet first aid training and business insurance.

03. What makes us different

My St Bernard Dogs are very much a part of my family. I love dogs and which is why with every booking I donate to the St Bernard Trust to support those less fortunate dogs giving them a leg up in life.

What would you like to know?

Help and
Faqs

What are the expectations if my pet is excitable, nervous, boisterous?

The important thing is to consider the welfare of your dog.Ask yourself do they have the right temperament to cope with your celebrations.Weddings are stressful for humans so your dog might have heightened anxieties too. We will, of course, discuss with you of ways in which you care for your pet, and what are your pet’s strengths ie do they sit, or how they respond to commands (or not!).

There is the saying ‘never work with animals’ and there is a reason that things do not a lways go to plan! This may be more about your expectations!  For example, your dog may not wish to glide down the aisle with your rings, but we will be there to catch them the other end!

This goes for photographs too, it may be that your dog will only wish for a couple of photos before he/she is off to find something more exciting, so we will discuss with your photographer beforehand.

Why do you not recommend my dog attends the reception?

We often find it’s a long day for your dog after attending the wedding, having photos, and receptions can be overwhelming, so we offer to take your pet home for some well-deserved treats and rest.

Can I dress my dog in wedding attire?

Yes of course!  But we generally leave this to you to source – after all you know your dog’s style.

Some of our guests do not like dogs, what should we do?

Not everyone likes dogs, or they might have allergies.   Just let us know which guests to avoid if they are worried.

Can you organise pamper session at a grooming salon?

Yes of course!  This will be an additional fee.

Can you organise additional walks prior to our wedding date?

Yes of course! This will be an additional fee.

Can you recommend dog friendly wedding venues?

How our clients feel about us

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

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

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

Staff Sgt Lisa Leighton

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

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

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

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

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

Pippa Buckner

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

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.
