Who is the wedding coordinator? And when do we meet?
If you have booked this service we will send you a form via email that will ask for all the details of your day and introduce you to your coordinator, feel free to add in more info if you think it is important (the more info the better!). Once completed send this back to your coordinator and they will arranged to meet with you. It is best to arrange to meet once you have as many of the details your day confirmed! Your coordinator will be able to support you through your ceremony at Asylum and your reception party at AMP Studios.
Is confetti allowed?
