Ardour & Bow specialises in planning events in historic buildings and beautiful outdoor locations. You will find us at country estates, castles, or planning forest ceremonies and parties in marquees.


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.

Where are you based?

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 eco-friendly is your business?

We are taking considered steps for our business to be eco-friendly and sustainable. We donate a portion of our planning fee to a charity called Forever Wild who are saving the world's wildernesses. We are also exploring ways to reduce our carbon footprint and when planning every event we consider ways that it too can be sustainable ensuring that flowers are foam-free and reducing food miles where possible

What size of event do you plan?

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.


Everything to the minute details was perfection! What a fabulous and unforgettable day we had and we owe this to your professional approach to organise it for us! The interior of the venue was exactly as we wanted it and even more! All the professionals you have recommended to us - the florist, the catering company, the photographer, all did their best to make our day so fantastic! They have put their hearts into what they were doing and that is how we got a result which was even beyond our expectations! Everything down to the minute details was done to perfection! Everything looked very sophisticated and glamorous, exactly as we wanted it! Our guests were so happy! Thank you for all your lovely wishes, for your smiles and please forgive us because we have surely forgotten to thank you for everything you have done for us!
