Amanda and Tom

Good morning my favoritest ever wedding planner!!!


I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for what was genuinely the best day of my life! It was brilliant! You guys at Rebate made it everything we had hoped for and more and we are so so grateful!!!

You are bloody brilliant ‘my lover!’

The guests have ALL said its the best wedding they’ve ever been to and that it will be impossible to top! You guys really gave us a wonderful day!

You were also amazingly helpful and hilarious throughout the planning and the day- perfect wedding planner babe!

Ooh also just thought I’d let u know that the website has listed me as Amanda Dawson- (that was my old stage name) I really should change my email address! Is it impossible to change it to Amanda Richardson at all? No worries if not- just thought I’d let you know.


Once again- thank you for everything. I’m very sad it’s over and we’ll pop in and see you every now and then.


All my love





Tom & Amanda Wednesday 20th June 2012 at 4.00pm

I have wanted to write this testimonial for days,  about this amazing and very special couple Amanda Richardson and Tom Swift.

They took their wedding vows on 20th June 2012 at 4.00pm in our lovely little chapel

I cannot being to tell you all what fun they have been throughout the organizing of the wedding and on the day.

Amanda & Thomas are a very special couple, they both work in the world of theatre, and that is exactly what they wedding was, a stage production.

Tom and his ushers danced down the aisle to Bruno Mars, “ I want to marry you”

Followed after by the most beautiful bride Amanda and her Dad.  Amanda looked stunning, like a goddess as the photos show.

They opted for a non religious service, which was performed by celebrant Malcolm Mc Clean.

The flowers were amazing, with buckets of lilies and roses, on the steps leading up to the church and topiary trees framing the church doors.  Tall towering vases were filled with peonies, hydrangeas, and green orchids the pew ends which hung from ever chair were cones of aged sheet music filled to the brim with flowers.

Their guests were from stage and screen, and there were two soloist singers from the guests, who performed in the church, all in all it was the most amazing ceremony.

As they left the church the Mariachi band were walking up the steps outside of the church playing cheerful, happy tunes, which of course all of the guests joined into.

The dining room, looked stunning Amanda opted for the white birdcages on the tables, which were dressed with lime green hydrangeas and green orchids

They had an olde fashion sweet table set up again in whitey green shades, with traditional sweets from England, and traditional paper bags.

The couple, had made photo frames which looked aged and inserted photos of themselves from their stage productions, pantomimes and other theatre shots, the wedding team hung them in the garden on the branches of the trees, a very special touch.  The two topiary trees from outside the church doors, were moved up into the top dining room on the tables, for guests to write message for the happy couple on brown luggage labels, which they tied to the trees.

Off course the evening entertainment went off with a bang, and a compilation of songs which was made by Tom, which including all of the guests, having to do a turn on the dance floor.

Well my darlings, what can I say, you have been the most fun, happy, joyous couple to deal with, I loved ever minute of working with you both.

Thanks so very much for your kind words, and please come back to Rebate to see us all again.

Our love to you both from Dawne and the wedding team at Rebate Bob, Andrew, Sandra, Carol, Pepi, Paco, Eric, Nicole, and all the crew.
