Wedding MANAGEMENT and organiser
This is also called 'On the Day' Wedding Coordination.
Its a popular option, as couples want to know that their special celebration day is in a pair of safe hands, experienced and capable.
Whilst many couples relish planning their entire wedding down to the last detail, but the thought of having to clock watch on the day, unload or help out suppliers' needs, set up, sort unforeseen hiccups, move furniture or be disturbed with questions during their big day, doesn't appeal!
So this is where award winning Amanda-Louise and her team come in, taking the stress from your shoulders, leaving you to enjoy your day with your friends and family, secure in the knowledge that your wedding day will be expertly and calmly managed.
Our wedding coordination process begins with a comprehensive wedding handover meeting four weeks before your wedding. We will discuss the vision for your day and those personal small details that matter to you both.
We will review your plans, and advise if anything is missing, coming up with the solutions. We'll look at your timeline to ensure the day has sufficient scope for everything to go with ease, and make suggestions if not.
We will have liaised with your suppliers, introduced ourselves and shared the final time schedule with full details. Here's what a professional said about us:
“So well organised and super helpful to have on the day! I recently worked as a videographer at awedding 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 alot 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 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! Jordan Videographer”
When the day arrives we will be there seamlessly coordinating all the suppliers so everyone works in harmony together. Amanda-Louise will answer all your suppliers queries so becomes that one point of contact.
We'll know if any guests need particular support, ensuring everyone feels special, welcomed and engaged in your day.
To ensure your day goes as you dreamed of, we'll be busy behind the scenes ensuring everything goes to plan, and not too far from you either, so you have everything you need. Plus we will carry out any MC or toastmaster duties if you require, so everyone doesnt miss out on key elements of your dream day.
And we calmly and discreetly sort any unforeseen hiccups that may arise, leaving everyone to soak up every moment of your special day. We'll leave you after the first dance of your evening....unless you want us to stay longer.
"We just want to say a massive thank you. Our day was just amazing, everyone had an absolute blast and it was just incredible. Amanda you were an absolute godsend. You made sure the show kept running as smoothly as possible and were great to be on hand. So thank you so much we couldn't have done it without you, love Loxley"
Whether you are having your wedding day at home, in a luxury hotel, rustic barn, on a beach or countryside setting with marquee to something quite different, it starts with saying 'hello' to Amanda-Louise.
She's award winning, coordinated lots of different weddings and events over the years, each one as different as her clients are. As an ethical business, we are transparent with our pricing, information, t&cs underpinned with our policies.
Based in the South West, she has a good knowledge of the area and connections, although at times she does work across the UK with many of her clients coming from abroad or out of county trusting her abilities and attitude to ensure they have incredible memories.
Amanda-Louise, as well as her team, proudly have a passion for the work they do. They adore seeing couples shine on their day, knowing how much it means to them.

Can Celebrants Perform legal Ceremonies?
Currently the UK Law states that Independent Celebrants cannot yet perform legally binding ceremonies. This means if the couple want to be legally married, they complete the functional aspect of the legal requirement or civil partnership formalities at a Registry Office by simply booking a 2+2 basic ceremony costing about £57 taking 2 witnesses with them. This takes about 10 minutes in time, and you do not have to say vows, but the Registrar will need to say a few legal words. The Registry Office typically runs these types of legal services during one day of the week which you book in advance your slot. Thats it, the legal part is done, leaving you to have your wedding ceremony separately with a Celebrant of your choice who will provide you with a personal ceremony of your choice.
Alternatively you could arrange for the Registrar to come out to your wedding venue (provided it is licensed as the Law currently stands) and they conduct the legal paperwork, then the Celebrant takes over. But this is not as cost effective option.
NB - Currently the Government are considering updating the Marriage Law Act, so legislation may change in the future. Hopefully they will look how other countries successfully have Celebrants performing the legal aspects, without having to separate the process.
How far does Amanda-Louise Knight Weddings Proposals & Events travel?
We are based in the heart of Somerset. Typically our clients book us for their weddings and events in Somerset, Devon, Bristol or North Somerset, Cotswolds and Dorset, but we can travel further.
For our Somerset Wedding Day Dog Chaperone Service, we tend to support clients in Somerset and Devon areas.
Naturally we have to charge for our mileage but we keep to the government recommended rate of 45p per mile.
What happens if I need to cancel or change the date of my event once booked?
Our terms and conditions show how we calculate our fees should anyone wish to cancel our services after 14 days of booking. This is calculated on a time basis as well as the work we have already carried out plus loss of earnings, so its important to let us know as soon as possible. This information can be found in our 'Policies' page under 'Who Are We' on the top navigation tab. We also send this to all our clients who book our services.
If you wish to reschedule your date, then providing we are available on your new date, we simply change the date. In some circumstances there may be an increase in our costs too, but we will discuss this with you.
