Whether set at 15 people for your wedding (or any other new limit, such as 30 people), Ardour & Bow have planned a number of intimate celebrations under the new Government guidelines. We offer an affordable bespoke package, tailored to your requirements, to make the absolute most of your day


Small intimate weddings can still be absolutely gorgeous days, creating unique memories to last a lifetime. They also open up the possibility of much wider choice of venues, and give huge creative freedom to your day.

As well as excellent logistical planning, we offer endless creativity and attention to detail. Collaborating with you throughout, we place your unique personalities at the centre of your celebration, ensuring your wedding reflects who you are and the things you love.

This service is completely bespoke and tailor-made to suit your requirements.

As eternal optimists, we are looking ahead to the post Covid-19 future and the return of full-size weddings, but we understand  the need to have comprehensive contingency plans in place.
