Full Description
A lot of thought and planning goes into your wedding day and you want it to be perfect, I understand that. You also want a ceremony that you, and your guests, will recognise as being 'just you', I understand that too. So, I'll work with you to create a ceremony that does that. We'll begin by you telling me your love story, and I'll weave bits of that into your ceremony. You can tell me if you've got any passions and I'll weave those in too, for example you might both be Star Wars geeks or love everything vintage/retro - no problem. Then you can tell me your ideas for your ceremony, perhaps you want to include other people, perhaps you want to light a unity candle or have a handfasting, whatever you dream I can make reality. And it doesn't matter where you want to hold your ceremony, I can conduct weddings anywhere so whether your ceremony is in a castle, a woodland or your own back garden - great! Nor does it matter when you want to hold your ceremony - sunrise, sunset or any time inbetween - I only conduct one ceremony a day so can be with you whatever time you want, for however long you need me. On the day of your ceremony I'll arrive early to check that everything is ready for you, I'll conduct your ceremony with high professional standards - and a bit of humour - and I'll leave you with a certificate (if you want one) and a commemorative copy of your ceremony. I can't wait to hear all about you and your wedding so give me a ring or send me a message and let's start creating.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Gwyneth Owen-Jackson
Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding, and thank you for considering me as your celebrant. It's important that you feel comfortable with your celebrant and so I suggest that we have a chat (by phone, Skype or WhatsApp video) for you to find out if I'm the right person for you. It's also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you.

A special touch on our special day
We first met Gwyneth at the Indie Wedding Fayre in Sheffield and we were so glad we did!!! From our initial meeting with Gwyneth, to receiving a draft copy of our ceremony, to the actual day, Gwyneth was fantastic. Keeping in touch regularly to check in and see how we were going with our wedding plans really enabled us to build a relationship with her that made the day so much more comfortable. The ceremony was so personal and Gwyneth picked up on all the comments we both made in our meetings that it really felt like she gave all our guests an insight into our relationship, something that couldn't have been achieved with a typical registrar. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony much more than any traditional wedding ceremony they have been to before. I cannot recommend Gwyneth enough and hope that we will see her again in the future as we have told all our friends to get in touch! Thank you so much Gwyneth you added a special touch to our incredibly special day. Beth and Jed Shooter

the perfect ceremony
We could not thank you enough for giving us the perfect ceremony! Every single person we speak to says it's the most emotional and the best ceremony they've been to. Although the bit with the registrar was when we were 'legally married' our real ceremony was with you and it was amazing! Thank you so much!

The perfect ceremony
We could not thank you enough for giving us the perfect ceremony! Every single person we speak to says it's the most emotional and the best ceremony they've been to. The bit with the registrar went well, it was over and done with in minutes. Although that was when we were 'legally married' our real ceremony was with you and it was amazing! Thank you so much!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Caroline and Mark's woodland wedding was full of personal touches - they involved family and friends in preparing and decorating the woodland space so everyone felt involved in the ceremony

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Every ceremony is memorable for different reasons. The very first one I conducted, for Harriet and James, was of course memorable for being the first but also because it was held in a theatre and the ceremony was written as a three-act play. The children at the ceremony sat enthralled as I told the story, there was laughter along the way and, of course, a bit of theatre. Fabulous.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Not sure if proud is the right word, but I love it when I get thank-yous from couples - not because I like the praise but because it means that I got it just right for them and made their day even more special and memorable

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

When one partner walks into the room, or up the aisle, and the other partner turns to see them - that is always a magical moment, you can feel the love.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Once a couple have decided that I'm the right celebrant for them, we begin with a meeting (which could be in person or could be by Skype or WhatsApp video) so that we can talk about their ideas for the ceremony and for them to tell me their love story (I love that bit). I then take some time to write their ceremony, incorporating their ideas and weaving in their story. This initial draft may need tweaking and I keep in constant contact with the couple until the ceremony has been agreed. If the wedding is some time off then I'll keep in regular contact until nearer the day, when we'll have a final check to make sure everything is still ok. On the day of the ceremony, I arrive early to check that everything is ready and I lead and conduct the ceremony.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I love meeting couples for the first time, the excitement when we talk about their ideas for their ceremony and the smiles when they tell me their love story.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

professional, calm, authentic, fun, creative

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

before you start planning, sit down together and think about what you want on the day - how does it look and feel, what would make it special to you - and then focus your planning on creating that, there are so many possibilities it's easy to get side-tracked.

What do you love most about your job?

Nothing too extreme - there was the bride who was allergic to jewelry and who, after some discussion, had a handfasting as part of her wedding ceremony.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

For me it's attention to detail. I love the creative process at the beginning but once the ceremony has been agreed I like to focus on the fine detail and, where possible, have a talk-through with the couple before the actual day. If everyone knows what to do and what to expect it's less stressful. For the couple, I advise them on the day to just focus on themselves, breathe deeply, and everything else will fall into place.
