You’ve spent months organising the biggest day of your life, booked the venue, sent out the invites, ordered the cake and flowers and said ‘yes to the dress’ but yet someone important is missing.. your beloved furry best friend.

Why wouldn’t your pet be present on your wedding day? They are as much a part of the family as your Best man or Bridesmaids so why not have them be part of your celebrations?

Together Furever Weddings VanYou may have already considered it but logistically how could it work, you’re going to be too busy to look after them and all of the people you would trust to look after them are actually with you so you resign yourself to celebrate the day without them, however this also could cause extra stress and anxiety as Kennels or boarders may not be an option and you would spend your day worrying about them, taking your mind off of the best day of your lives.

At Together Furever Weddings we hope to eliminate all of that worry and stress and make your day even more pawfect meaning you can relax and enjoy every part of your Furry Tail Wedding celebrations.

We offer a highly individual, personalised wedding Dog Chaperone service so your family pet can be included in every celebration and let us look after them like they were part of our family.

About Us

HelenHi, Im Helen and alongside my Husband Lee we are your pet chaperones. We have a lifelong passion for all animals and have been lucky enough to have been loved by such a variety, from horses to birds from fish to ferrets and dogs from tea cup Yorkshire Terriers to Marley our beautiful Great Dane.

At present we are guardians of our Cockapoo Oscar and our  smooth haired Cockapoo Ziggy.

In 2019 we were getting married and we started to worry about who would be able to look after our boy Oscar (we didn’t have Ziggy at this time). Oscar is a huge part of our family and  comes everyone with us, we were worried as all of our friends and family would be with us on the day and we wanted him to be a pivotal part of our special celebration. Unfortunately for us our venue wouldn’t allow dogs (we pleaded with them we were desperate and were thinking how we could even smuggle him in) but obviously realistically this wasn’t possible and we were devastated. He was looked after by a local boarder but we missed having him with us and when I look back at our photographs it always feels like someone is missing.

HelenIt got me thinking how many other couples are going through this dilemma and feeling heartbroken if they cant have their furry best friend with them on their special day. So I created Together Furever weddings to be able to help your perfect day become even more Pawfect….

What is a Dog Chaperone?

  • Our professional and friendly Dog Chaperone service allows you to include your furry best friend into your celebrations.

  • You can choose how you would like your pet involved, Best Dog or Dog of Honour, Ring Bearer, Flower Girl, or to welcome your guests. Together we can also discuss any attire you would like them to wear.

  • We provide dog handling and assistance throughout your requested booking including exercising, feeding, hydrating and toileting incl lots of playtime and walks.

  • We offer a variety of pricing options to fit any budget or event. This can include proposals, photo shots, rehearsals, vow renewals and weddings.

  • We can personalise your event and offer a no obligation consultation where we get to know your pet, you and your story. We will also discuss the best way for your pet to feature in your big day.

  • If you wish we can escort your pet down the aisle and work with the photographer to capture those pawfect family memories.

  • To further enhance the experience we offer several upgrades to our packages incl a chauffeur service with paw printed car ribbons and bows to transport your pet to and from the venue.

  • For tailored exclusive experience we can create a customised package to enable us to combine other services incl pet sitting and overnight stays.

Although Dogs are top of the guest list at Together Furever Weddings we can cater for all of your beloved pets.

What’s Included?

No Obligation Consultation

  • A free initial consultation, this can be a phone call or a zoom/facetime/whatsapp call to discuss your requirements.

  • This will last around 30 mins and will be a great opportunity to get to know each other. We can go through any worries or concerns you may have, it may be you want to surprise your guests so we can make a surprise entrance or have them bring the rings down the aisle, this will be the time to create a plan for the day.

  • Once we have discussed all of the details I will email a quote to you and if you decide to go ahead a deposit will be taken to secure the date.

Pre Wedding Care

Chaperone Duties

  • I will be with your pet as discussed at our meeting for around 2 – 4  hours at the venue (depending on package chosen). I am very flexible and adaptable which is important if on the day your pet is over excited or anxious and not able to continue with the chosen role.

  • They could be a meeter and greeter for your guests, you could have one of the Bridesmaids or Groomsmen walk them down the aisle and then hand them to me ‘in the wings’

  • I will keep them occupied until the photographer is ready and provide them help in getting the best shots

Post Wedding Care

FAQs

Can we have our Dog with us all day (incl ceremony and reception)?2022-05-10T11:14:10+01:00

Your pets are our top priority, their health and welfare is the most important concern. The excitement, noise, different smells can cause some pets to feel overwhelmed and increase their stress and anxiety levels if exposed to long hours of heightened excitement. Therefore we recommend no longer than 2 hours. This will give them plenty of time to be involved with your guests, the ceremony and all of the photographs.

Where are you based and how far do you cover?2022-05-10T11:13:50+01:00

We are based in Weston super Mare BS22 and can cover up to 40 miles incl within our packages. We can cover outside of that but would charge 0.45p a mile on top of package price.

Do we have to pick one of your packages?2022-05-10T11:13:31+01:00

No, we are very flexible. Every wedding and every pet are different and individual. We offer a no obligation initial meeting where we can discuss all of your requirements and design a pawfect package just for you.

How many Dogs/Pets can we have?2022-05-10T11:13:10+01:00

It will depend on the venue and your ideas, if an extra handler is needed this will incur an extra fee.

What happens after the ceremony and photographs?2022-05-10T11:12:49+01:00

Again we will discuss and plan this in our meetings, we have several options. We can deliver your pet to your chosen drop off, family friend, boarder. We can deliver them to your home and stay with them for a couple of hours to ensure they are settled, fed and relaxed. If you have chosen we can extend the stay to 10pm in your own home, venues of friend’s house. Or finally we can stay in your chosen location overnight until the following day at 10am.

What happens if there was an emergency?2022-05-10T11:12:23+01:00

We will take all relevant emergency contacts with us. This could be a close friend or family member. We also collect the details of your own vet and the closet vet to the ceremony. We also take a thorough assessment of your pet incl their likes and dislikes, any medication, allergies, triggers to behaviours etc

Do you offer Grooming?2022-05-10T11:11:56+01:00

No we don’t, however we recommend you have your pet washed or groomed at least the day before. We will brush and deodorise them on the day, we will also ensure any muddy paws are wiped clean.

Feedback

Helen you are a superstar – We are so pleased with how well you took care of truffle and handled everything from start to finish. We absolutely love you, and honestly feel like you’re a friend now. You are just such a lovely person and I have loved speaking with you in the lead up to the wedding. Everything went to plan and having truffle there with the photos is the most amazing feeling in the world and all thanks to you. We absolutely love you and thank you so much for giving us the gift of having our fluff ball with us. You did it so effortlessly and we couldn’t be happier. Xx
Nikita & Edward, 28.07.23 – Truffle – Cripps Barn
Helen offered fantastic service, especially on the day with our dog Betsy. Our special day was pretty flexible, yet Helen was very accommodating with everything we had planned. She went above and beyond our expectation and we would highly recommend her services! Thank you for everything, you have been a great help and made the day special with Betsy.
Haydn & Morgan, 01.07.23 - Betsy – Photos by the suspension bridge
Helen, I cannot thank you and recommend you enough- I wish I could shout from the rooftop about how amazing you are. From day one, you made us and Oscar feel so comfortable with you- to the point where on the day he was so happy and excited to be with you all day that he wasn’t fussed and wondering where we were constantly. You went above and beyond for Oscar to make sure he was comfortable and settled throughout the day.

Helen was amazing from start to finish- she answered any questions we had with the upmost professionalism and care for us and Oscar. She put us both at ease by meeting Oscar beforehand and giving us pup-dates to a family member, so we knew he was okay. Helen went above and beyond to make sure Oscar was comfortable- she even stayed an hour extra than she was meant to!

You are honestly worth your weight and more in gold and we could not have asked for anybody better to look after Oscar for us! Everyone commented on how amazing you were, We honestly couldn’t of wished for anybody better to look after our little Oscar. Thank you so so so much!

Molly, 02.06.23 – Oscar – Holbrook Manor
Hi helen just a quick thank you from me, what you did for us was amazing you took a lot of stress away from the day knowing Tilly was being looked after. Thank you for the help during the photos we have had a sneak peak and she looks amazing in all of them!
Alex, 02.09.23 – Tilly & Saffy – Holbrook Manor
Helen and her colleague looked after 4 dogs for us at our daughter’s wedding last weekend. The temperature was 30 degrees. They looked after our 2 boys who are Oscar an 8 year old nervous cockapoo and Arthur our very active 9 month old Lab puppy. It was Arthurs first time away from home and the first time he’d been left without us. They also looked after our sons Lab Ruby and the Grooms Dads dog Jet. The preparation before was impressive with two meetings and lots of information gathered. They allowed us to enjoy the day and the dogs were wonderfully looked after given they had 4 dogs in 30 degree heat for 12 hours. I cant praise them or recommend them highly enough.
Paul (Dad of Bride), 09.09.23 – Ruby, Oscar, Arthur & Jet - Holbrook Manor
Helen took care of our dog Dave at our wedding at Burgh Island last week. Dave is a young Labrador and is both energetic and shy around new people. Helen was so good with Dave, she took time to meet him a few time before the wedding so that on the day he felt comfortable with her. Helen done a fantastic job, thank you so much. It was so reassuring to know Dave was looked after and it allowed my husband and I to just relax during the event, knowing our precious boy was being well looked after. Helen is reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Angela & Miles, 03.08.23 – Dave - Burgh Island Hotel
Sending over a few piccys thank you so much for all you did for us and Odie.
Emily & Ben, 14.08.23 – Odie – Crowcombe Court
Helen – We had the most magical time, im still in a bubble, it meant so much that Loki was there and she was being looked after by you. I really wanted to give her a cuddle when I first saw her but knew I couldn’t but as you found out, she loves cuddles. Thank you so much for the photos you sent of your day together she looks like she had a great time!
Carole & Paul, 02.12.23 - Loki – The Bear at Rodborough
Thank you so much for all of your help yesterday. I cant describe how much easier you made the day for all of us and how great it was to have the dogs there.
Elliot, 10.06.23 – Teddy & Winston – Crowcombe Court
We used Helen for our wedding and I can’t put into words how amazing she was! Our pooch was looked after perfectly and was exactly where he had to be at the exact time he had to be there and was relaxed and happy with Helen.

She came and met our dog the week before the wedding to get used to him and stayed in contact throughout the whole process. On the day we can’t fault anything she did and kept our dog safe and happy all day. She picked him up and dropped him back to the kennels he was staying at and took all the stress away from having our dog at our wedding.

– we’ve just got Ludo back and home safe and sound. I want to thank you so much for Saturday. Your service was perfect and you made the day run so smoothly with Ludo in your care. Ive been recommending you to everyone that has asked how we got ludo to the ceremony. We couldn’t have done it without you and we cant thank you enough.

Connor & Jess, 22.07.23 – Ludo - The Webbington Hotel
Helen – Not all hero’s wears capes but you must have one somewhere. It’s always been Chloe’s dream to have Sonny with her on her special day and you made it happen. From the first time meeting you up until the time you tucked him in bed we cannot fault your service second to none. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for adding that special touch by having sonny.
Mitch, 20.03.23 – Sonny – St Audrie’s Park

When my fiancé joked about our dog being our ring-bearer on the night that we got engaged, I thought it was the best idea but I had no idea how to make it a reality – & then along came Helen. From the second I met her, I just trusted her. I could see the love and compassion that she had for dogs as well as her job. She took the time to really understand what we were hoping from the day & then multiplied what I had hoped for by 1000. She came to the house before the day to meet our dog (& my parent’s dog who she was staying with but not bringing to the wedding), she got to know them and bonded with them with such ease, and we knew that they would be in the safest hands throughout the weekend. She timed everything on the day perfectly, and we ended up with the most incredible videos of our dog running down the aisle which I think will always bring a tear to my eyes because it was just perfect. However, what I didn’t expect was her to also be able to get our dogs attention and somehow make the most lively, jumpy spaniel known to man actually pose perfectly for pictures after the wedding. She was flawless in every single way during the wedding itself – but beyond that, simply knowing she was at the house with the dogs meant that we (who usually worry about our dog every 2-3 minutes) quite literally forgot all about her because we knew she was having the best time with her new best friend Helen! Our day would not have been the same without her & we cannot thank her enough. I will forever recommend her to every single person I know, because no wedding is complete without your furry best friend (& your soon-to-be human friend Helen too!)

Being able to include our dog in such a special moment just meant the world to us, & with Helen we also got so much more – we trusted her completely and she helped to make our wedding simply perfect!

Beckie & Alex, 02.09.23 – Tilly & Saffy – Holbrook Manor
Helens communication was very good prior to our wedding, it was clear that she was very passionate about offering our dogs the best experience and making sure she was able to build rapport with them. On the day Helen was perfect, making sure our dogs were present when we wanted them, and then taking them off and keeping them entertained for the day. Thank you so much for yesterday, Marlow seemed to have a great time shes so tired today!
David & Maisie, 19.08.23 - Marlow & Charlie – Lapstone Barn
I cant recommend highly enough. If you want your doggos at a wedding you are attending don’t hesitate theyre brilliant. Ruby and her Pals had a brilliant time and were so well looked after.
Rae (mum to Lab Ruby), 09.09.23 – Ruby, Oscar, Arthur & Jet - Holbrook Manor
Helen, what can I say. Absolutely phenomenal service. We were apprehensive on hiring a dog chaperone for our wedding but we are SO thrilled we found Helen & Together Furever weddings. From start to finish Helen made sure we felt comfortable & informed. We felt like we were giving our dog to best friends for the day. She is amazing in her work ethic, her communication & her caring & outgoing kindness. We love her, our dog loved her & so did our guests.

Thank you so much for looking after our girls I don’t know what we would have done without you thank you, thank you thank you, I can honestly say I didn’t worry about saffy once.
Deb (Mum of Bride), 02.09.23 – Tilly & Saffy – Holbrook Manor
We wanted our Fur baby to be part of our special day and Helen made this possible for us at short notice too! Helen looked after our dog Rebel like she was her own dog. We both knew that we could trust Helen from the moment we met her, she listened to all our requests and is very kind and friendly. Helen was really helpful with the photos and getting Rebel to respond and being there at all times with Rebel, ready for cuddles and greeting guests. We couldn’t recommend Together Furever Weddings enough, took all the worry and stress away and helped made our day perfect! Thank you so much for everything.
Elie & Aaron, 14.10.23 - Rebel – Milton End Barn
I can’t put into words how amazing Helen was on my wedding day looking after our dogs. I really wanted them included on our day without the stress of worrying about them being looked after by guests and Helen’s was exactly what I was looking for. From the point of booking, Helen kept in contact with me and came and met the dogs twice before the wedding just to get to know them and understand exactly what we wanted on the day. On the day of the wedding Helen ensured everything went smoothly, walking the dogs and bringing them out just in time for photos and even helping the photographer to get the perfect shot! The dogs didn’t even acknowledge us most of the time because they were so at ease with Helen which just shows how great she is with them. Our guests even commented on how lovely and professional Helen was and how gentle she was with the dogs. I couldn’t recommend someone better to trust with your pets.
Natalie, 10.06.23 – Teddy & Winston – Crowcombe Court
Helen, WHAT CAN I SAY… From the very first minute we enquired you was the utmost professional. You showed the highest amount of care and detail to our pet. Throughout the whole day was a dream and didn’t stop hearing complimentary words towards you. I cannot recommend your service highly enough and couldn’t imagine the biggest day of our lives without the part you played.
Scott, 02.06.23 – Oscar – Holbrook Manor
We want to thank you for the brilliant job you did at clares wedding. It was so hot and you did amazingly with our Oscar and Arthur. We would strongly recommend you. Thank you once again for the brilliant job in looking after our boys and with Ruby and Jet.
Cathy (Mum of Bride), 09.09.23 – Ruby, Oscar, Arthur & Jet - Holbrook Manor

I can’t recommend Helen enough! What an amazing job she did of looking after sonny for my wedding day, very kind, loving and takes very good care. Helen went above & beyond and made sure sonny was comfortable and happy back at home impeccable service! Thank you for helping with making sonny presentable and happy during our photos! Lots of love x

Chloe, 20.03.23 – Sonny – St Audrie’s Park

Important Considerations

  • Make sure when looking at your venues that they are pet friendly

  • If its not a secret make sure your guests are aware there will be a Dog present in case you have anyone with an allergy or a fear of Dogs. It’s a good idea to let your chaperone know who this is at the wedding so they can stay away from them

  • Ensure your pet has the right temperament for the role you have chosen.

  • Rehearse with them; dress them in the attire you’ve chosen so they get used to it.

  • If you are choosing real flowers as a collar please make sure these are pet friendly as some plants and foliage are poisonous.

  • Their health and welfare will always be our main priority.
