Your Wedding Investment…
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my website. My name is Amy Thorne, a Lincolnshire based multi award winning wedding planner working throughout the whole of the UK. I am calm, creative, supportive and super organised, yet friendly, genuine and approachable and 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. My ethos is that you are only as good as your last wedding which keeps me three steps ahead.
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 am not pushy or bossy, it is your special day and I am here to assist / advise wherever needed. 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, think of me as an ‘investment’. Lots of my lovely couples live overseas and need that ‘main point of contact’ in the UK to assist and coordinate everything and having that independent wedding professional can really help.
After over 8 years in the wedding industry, I have had the opportunity to work on some exquisite and elegant weddings (over 250 now and all so different yet beautiful). I have worked with varying budgets and have organised weddings from 20 – 400 guests at venues including hotels, golf resorts, village halls, town halls, railway stations, pavilions, abbeys, barn conversions, theatres, country houses / estates, stately homes, cathedrals, palaces and castles, as well as marquees and tipis at family homes / farms / estates. I have experience with Asian, Nigerian and other multi-cultural weddings too. Prior to being a wedding planner, I worked as a PA (for around 15-20 years) within various companies, as well as organising high class VIP events including royal visits.
As well as being an independent wedding planner, I am also multi 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.
I cover the areas of Lincolnshire, Rutland, Vale of Belvoir, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, as well as the whole of the UK. Please browse through my lookbook at a selection of some of the beautiful weddings I have been lucky enough to have assisted with, as well as reading the lovely comments of my couple’s experiences with me as their wedding planner.
A little bit about me – born and bred in Lincolnshire, with a four year period living in Europe, I am now happily settled in our ‘forever’ home in the pretty Lincolnshire countryside, just nine miles outside of historic Lincoln, with my lovely husband Jim and daughter Gen (Genevieve) who will be seven in June. When I’m not planning weddings or styled shoots I like to spend quality time with my family and friends, travel, indulge in beautiful food (and wine) and practice yoga a couple of times a week. I also love to tackle interior design projects in our house.
Amaranthyne Weddings officially launched at the beginning of 2012 after lots of studying (in wedding planning and interior design), research, work experience, hard work and tears. I finally realised in my mid 30’s that it was time to follow my dream career, a ‘creative’ trapped in a corporate world and I haven’t looked back since. 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. A number of my weddings and styled shoots have appeared in blogs and magazines, including an ‘at home’ feature. I was also asked to be a guest speaker at the National Wedding Venues Conference in York in 2016.
A fun and exciting time is ahead and I hope that I can assist with planning part or all of your dream day for you.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat.
