What would you like to know?

Help and
Faqs

What style of wedding do you plan?

My role is creating your vision into reality, whatever your style. I can make suggestions. My personal view is that weddings should represent you as individuals, and as a couple.   

Do you have preferred suppliers?

I have a range of gorgeous contacts, however, if you prefer to source any supplier, that’s of course fine. It's about the right fit for you.

Can you be our Celebrant and Wedding Planner?

Absolutely yes! All of my services are stand alone, or you can book one or more of our services.

What areas do you cover?

We live on Exmoor (Somerset/Devon) and tend to work across the nearby counties.  I also spend time in Sussex and Hampshire which tends to take me to those counties regularly.  I can travel through out the UK though.

How do you calculate your fees?

We charge a bespoke fee between 10 and 15% of the total wedding budget for full-service planning and design, with a minimum fee of £2,500.  For partial wedding planning the minimum fee is £1,500. We will confirm a more accurate quote once we have had the complimentary initial consultation (made in person or via the internet). Fees are calculated on various factors such as guest numbers, location, if outdoors, whether you have already booked venue, number of event days etc. So do get in touch to arrange the initial consultation, its complementary and non-contractual.

Do you charge for travel and accommodation?

This will depend upon the package and location, but this can be discussed at the beginning of our working relationship.

Are you qualified?

Wedding planning qualifications are not recognised by an official body in the UK, but we have trained in this area.

Will you take over decisions and our day?

No this is your day.

What if something doesn’t go to plan?

We work 110% to ensure everything is smooth and seamless. Unfortunately, we cannot absolutely guarantee that nothing will ever go wrong. Should this happen, we are solution focused to deal with any unforeseen circumstance.

Are you insured?

Yes we are fully insured with public liability insurance.

What is the difference between Celebrant, Wedding Planner and Master of Ceremonies?

As a Celebrant, we write and conduct any ceremony personalised to clients’ needs.   As a Wedding Planner we plan, design, obtain suppliers etc and co-ordinate your wedding or event.   As a Master of Ceremonies, we provide compere duties at a wedding, or reception or other event ensuring everything goes to plan and timing, whilst enquiring everyone has a good time.     Clients are free to book 1 of our services or more.

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.
