Award winning businesses Fuze Ceremonies and Appointedd have teamed up to provide an online Celebrant booking App which taps into consumers desire to book online in real time.

Fuze primarily focus on matching customers with the perfect celebrant for weddings, naming ceremonies and funerals. They also offer celebrant training courses, script writing and MC’s for events. Appointedd’s scheduling and online booking software will allow potential brides, grooms and other customers to arrange all their celebrant needs online – saving them time and supporting them in delivering the quintessential celebration event.

Anne Widdop, Founder of Fuze Ceremonies said “Now people can book their celebrant online, it gives them real peace of mind to be able to secure some-one for a key Celebration or Commemoration. We are the only celebrants in the UK who can be booked online and this has only been possible with the help of the fantastic team at Appointedd”.

Leah Hutcheon, founder of Appointed said “Appointedd’s flexible booking and scheduling software is perfect for Fuze, we have enabled them to launch an individual booking platform for every one of their team. Customers of Fuze can now easily book their celebrant night or day, from anywhere in the world”.

Anne and Leah were both part of E-Spark’s first intake of companies. Both companies have flourished since and are a great example of Scottish businesses collaborating to offer their services to the global marketplace.
