Hi, I'm Amanda-Louise
As award nominated and winning my focus is about you! Moments to celebrate are important in our lifetimes, so they will need inspiration, knowledge, expert planning and delivery. And that’s where I come in, so thank you for considering me!
With limitless options, it starts with me listening about you and whats meaningful for you!
I understand it can be daunting with so many choices, or where to start, so I guide you through a world of possibilities, without all the stress and worries that planning can bring, ensuring you have your memories that you want.
I can create a mixture of tradition meets modern, or have a totally unique celebration in your chosen indoor or outdoor UK location.
With my professional, qualified, experience working in events for over thirty years married together with my imagination, creative skills and personality, I am proud to bring a high-class service!
What's my ceremony style?
I create fresh, engaging, warm, fun and relaxed moments, totally personalised and meaningful to you!
Your guests will say ‘that was so them’ or ‘oooh I didn’t know that’ and won’t feel bored or unmoved from our traditional and modern ceremonies.
Im experienced creating ceremonies for dual heritage couples including polish, greek, turkish, indian and from UK. Ive included, when asked, blessings from Christain, Catholic and Muslim.
I love handfasting capturing why colours are important to you, so when you tie that knot, its wrapped up with your personality and goals for your future together!
Ive enjoyed asking guests what makes a good marriage and creatively weaving that within the ceremony content.
Im the UK’s only Celebrant, Toastmaster/MC, Independent Wedding Planner and owner of Wedding Dog Chaperone Service offering value all under one roof!
Please get in touch to discuss how I can make your day just perfect!

Hello Im Amanda-Louise and I just adore weddings that capture the very essence of beautiful timeless elegance filled with love and laughter.
My business is all about helping you have the most amazing celebration in life by writing & conducting your bespoke wedding ceremony as a Celebrant, or by making those special announcements as a Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies during your wedding reception, or by planning, sourcing suppliers and styling your whole wedding day as an Independent Wedding Planner & Stylist and finally to even helping your dog to join in with the fun with my team from Somerset Wedding Day Dog Chaperone Service.

I work with families who want a naming ceremony for their baby or child, but not necessary want a full religious service.
Naming ceremonies are not just about babies and many adults choose to change their identify.
I welcome transgender communities who want to celebrate changes in their life, and work together to find the right words for such a ceremony.
Adore baby naming and can include bubbles, wish boxes and all sorts of creative ideas to have lasting memories to treasure!
For more adult ceremonies such as transgender naming ceremonies, can include cocktails weaved into the ceremony (blending the mixture of your past, present and future)
Why choose Amanda-Louise for your naming ceremony?
Having a big heart and warm friendly approach, I adore all celebrations. Coming from a large family, and have children and grandchildren (goodness I dont feel that old!) I am passionate that all celebrations are full of sentiment, celebration, and lots of smiles – leaving everyone to talk about it for a very long time (for all the right reasons!)
Renewal of Vows
There are many reasons why couples want to renew their vows from reaffirming those wedding day vows, acknowledge their love after many years of marriage perhaps back when funds were limited, can now have the ceremony they missed out on. Or perhaps after ill-health or for some, after a wobbly relationship, to represent the rekindling of their love.
Whatever the reason, I am here to make the moment perfect just for you. With no legalities, the world is your oyster when it comes to these ceremonies! In other words, anything goes, and I will open you up to a world of possibilities in this area.
Being experienced in an abundance of approaches and techniques to suit, so if you are wanting a more humanist style, a religious text or spiritual one; you will receive an excellent custom not standard service.
Anything goes! If you want it to feel like a second wedding, or to emphasise celebrating journey of your partnership up to now and your future, or focus on rekindling your love, talk to me and achieve a memorable occasion.
At the centre of my service is you, so tell me about you, your journey together and as individuals, family, your wants/hopes for the future in way comfortable for you. I will ask if you have any religious or spiritual preferences and will make suggestions to incorporate heartfelt elements with sentimental (and historic) meanings in a visual demonstration, which can have your guests in awe. I can incorporate any children or guests involving them in your ceremony if you wish. I write your ceremony in the style representing you, and when you are satisfied it is simply perfect, I will conduct this in the way to bring those emotions/sentiments alive.
Why choose Amanda-Louise for your renewal of vows?
Often saying “I love you” isn’t as easy as it sounds. Using me enables you to say those words and so much more. I personally create unique to you, and deliver a ceremony expressing your profound emotion/words in an eloquent relaxed manner, in any venue inside or outdoors.
So, if you want a moment feeling cared for, held dear, be in love with or even desired and irresistible, with celebrating your journey so far and wishes for the future, delivered with sprinkles of happiness and humour (or heaps of it) then contact me to make your wishes into reality?
Its a privilege to support grieving families who want to have a service that represents the person whom they miss dearly. I do this in various ways, firstly by not rushing the family, listening to their tales remembering of happy times, I offer options which can be incorporated into the service and can conduct this anywhere including burial, cremation or scattering of ashes, memorials and so on.
I have conducted many funerals, some formal, or a military farewell, a hells-angels send-off and some being a glamorous celebration.
Being trained and former police background, I am experienced and sensitive to baby and infant passing, complex sudden fatalities or after long illnesses.
As a trained bereavement counsellor too, I can provide therapy support and signpost families with regard to probate and all the what next things to think about.
I work alongside any funeral director in a sync way, working together to ensure a smooth and seamless way for you. At crematoriums, their time is booked usually per 30-minute slots, and my valuable time management skills, ensures that we do not run over time but is done in a seamless way, without you feeling rushed.
I can write/attend services from burials, cremations, woodlands, internment of ashes, memorials, celebration of life ceremonies and so on.
Why choose Amanda-Louise for your funeral?
The centre of my service are my clients and people around them, releasing pressure off them, and giving them ways in which they might like to express their last goodbye, done in the right way for them, and to express grief, wrapped around by my trained support.
Imagine the difference this makes when reflecting in the future of someone you treasure?
My last message to you is this – my service is not just a formality. If I sound like someone you would like to represent you, please do not hesitate in contacting me. Amanda-Louise x

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.
I have had the pleasure of working with Amanda-Louise on many occasions and her attention to detail is second to none and her personal touch to every service she performs in all different cultures and beliefs.
Without a doubt I would 100% recommend Amanda-Louise to all my couples. Anya xx

I was a photographer at a beautifully led wedding ceremony by Amanda in Dorset. 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 :).
