I know how important your day is to you, and I care that it's just how you dream it to be. 

As a professional wedding planner who is friendly and works in harmony with other suppliers, me planning your wedding doesn’t mean I take control, after all it's your day, you make the decisions. 

When I make recommendations, its for the right reasons as I do not take commission from suppliers.

My project management work for you saves you up to 300 hours planning time, removes hassle from searching for the right venue and suppliers (I search and present these to you to decide), and simply takes the stress from your shoulders, so you enjoy the journey.

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. I do not accept commission from any supplier so if I recommend a supplier, its for all the right reasons!

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?

I live on Exmoor and cover the UK including Somerset, Devon, Bristol, Wales, Gloucestershire and Dorset.

How do you calculate your fees?

Its dependent upon guest numbers, location, whether at venue or outdoor space where we literally ‘build’ the venue.

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.

How my clients feel about me

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 - review of funeral service 2021

Oh my goodness that service was so them, it was beautiful - What an amazing wedding - Such a beautiful ceremony - It was a beautiful day and ceremony, Mollie looked stunning as always too

Mollie and Matt's wedding review 2021

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

The wedding ceremony was beautiful and personal. I loved the tying of the knot and how all the family was involved.

Lisa & Phil

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

Wow, Amanda-Louise the speeches & the emotions – such a beautiful and memorable wedding service

Natasha

The wedding ceremony (of Chelsea & Zakk) was so special, it was so nice to have both your heritages incorporated.

Steve & Nicky

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

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.
