Why choose Amy?

I am calm, creative, supportive and organised, yet friendly and approachable. My ethos is that you are only as good as your last wedding which keeps me 3 steps ahead.

After over 8 years in the wedding industry, I still get butterflies the night before each of my weddings which shows how much I really care and that nothing will get forgotten. I can assist with any aspect of your special day so that you can just relax, enjoy and spend quality time with your family and friends.

About Amaranthyne

Multi - Award Winning

Wedding Investment

My knowledge and expertise in the wedding industry means I can be a real asset to your wedding planning journey whatever stage you are at. After over 8 years, I have had the opportunity to work on well over 250 beautiful weddings. I am passionate about all of my weddings and always strive to do my best to ensure an exquisite, elegant and exclusive occasion is created and executed. Lots of my couples end up as very good friends after investing in me for their wedding which is a true reflection of our connection / friendship throughout.

Behind The Planner

Born and bred in Lincolnshire, with a 4 year period living in Europe, I am now happily settled in the pretty rural village of Potterhanworth in Lincolnshire with my husband, Jim and daughter, Genevieve. When I'm not planning weddings, lookbooks or styled shoots I like to spend quality time with my family and friends, travel and indulge in beautiful food. I also love a morning run, spin or yoga class. A good book and a glass of fizz is also enjoyed from time to time.

Director Of Romance

As well as being an independent wedding planner, I am also award-winning Washingborough Hall's Director of Romance, working alongside the owner, Lucy on their beautiful weddings. Because of my role there, I only take on a limited amount of exclusive weddings per year, so please get in touch sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment for availability.
