Frequently Asked Questions:


How much does it cost to hire your services?

We provide a range of services from consultancy calls if you just need ad hoc planning advice, through to full event management of your day assisting with every aspect of your wedding. We will always do our best to find a suitable solution for your budget so get in touch to discuss your requirements. For full wedding planning services you can expect to pay 12% of your overall wedding spend.


Size of event you are able to organise

We can assist from small intimate celebrations up to events with huge guestlists. We've planned every type of event you can imagine from 30 - 3,000 guests.


Services you offer

We can assist at any point of your planning journey either joining you on your journey at the beginning, or stepping in with a helping hand closer to the day. And if you feel confident planning your wedding but need advice on suppliers, help managing your budget, guestlist management or creating a schedule for the day, we can also offer these services as a stand alone option.


Do you organise gay weddings?

Yes absolutely! We love to organise weddings for everyone.


What are the forms of payment?

Typical forms of payment are via online payment link or bank trasfer.


What does it mean that you have a base in the South West and in London?

We have two locations that we work out of - one in Devon, in the beautiful West Country, and a base also in West London in Chiswick. This means we are more than happy to meet with you for planning meetings in either Devon, or London! It also means that we have a fantastic contact book of suppliers covering both areas across the South West of the UK. We also love to travel and always happy to help plan weddings and events elsewhere in the UK.


How do you keep in touch with clients?

At Ardour & Bow, we realise that you've probably hired us because you need an events professional with fantastic supplier contacts and heaps of event management experience, probably don't have a lot of time to plan your own wedding, and/or live abroad and need a local expert. We therefore work around you. Ideally our contact will be via email and also video and telephone calls - which we always plan around your schedule. Need to call us on a weekend, or in the evening? No problem!
