Why do you want to work with us?
Ardour & Bow is an inclusive company and we love to plan weddings for everyone. One of our mottos is “its your day, do whatever feels right for you!” That means we encourage every couple to truly make their wedding their own, and that approach has always been embraced by our LGBTQ+ couples.

What is your approach to weddings?
Collaborate – Plan – Celebrate. To make every single stage as much fun and relaxing as it possibly can be, that’s what Ardour & Bow are here for.

What do you love about what you do?
With every wedding we help to plan, we always feel lucky to be part of a couple’s day. It’s always an honour when Ardour & Bow is chosen as a planning partner and we simply love getting to know our clients, who in time become friends.

What’s your favourite wedding reading?
We don’t have a favourite, but we love hearing something that speaks to you as a couple.

What’s your favourite wedding song?
There are so many that we love, but Hot Chocolate – You Sexy Thing (There is nothing wrong with having a bit of fun at your own wedding) would be our top choice.
