Products and Services
Celebrant / Officiant
I set up The Ceremony Company in 2013, having previously worked as a Local Government Registrar and Celebrant for 9 years. I believe couples and families should have a choice of ceremony for their special day. Having listened to what is important to couples during my 9 years with Registration Services - these are the things which they wanted - meeting and choosing their celebrant, having a rehearsal, including their choice of vows, promises, music and readings with no restrictions. Including their story, hopes, beliefs, religion, traditions, personality and humour. As most couples work and can't make midweek 9-5 appointments - so the Ceremony Company was created to include all the above. Whether you live here in the UK or abroad we arrange a mutually convenient date and time to meet you, either face to face or via video call, it is important to listen to all your ideas and to see if we are the right fit for your special day. If you then wish to book, we ask for a deposit to secure your date and celebrant, then we guide you through the process making sure you have a relaxed and memorable day. What is important to you is important to us. Your ceremony can have any content whether it remain traditional or be something different like a Handfasting, Memory Box, Unity Candle, Sand, Flower Bouquet, Blessing style ceremony. We never take a booking without having met you - we encourage you to share all your ideas for your big day. We never say anything which has not been agreed. We arrive in person up to an hour before your ceremony, your ceremony can be held on any date anywhere in the UK (indoors or outdoors) and at any time. We only book one ceremony per celebrant - so if there are any unforeseen time changes these can be easily accommodated. We present you with a keepsake commemorative certificate which can be signed as part of your day. Please get in touch to arrange a free no obligation meeting.

When couples create personal promises and keep them a surprise from each other. I love this!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Always respond to enquiries quickly and set out clearly the process, arrange a free no obligation meeting whether it is in person or via video call, then if the couple wish to proceed a deposit confirms their booking and a first draft ceremony is sent. This is then a work in progress until a final draft is agreed upon. A rehearsal or meeting during the week before the wedding ceremony. On the day, we arrive up to an hour before their chosen time, so that they have a relaxed, enjoyable, fun and memorable experience.
What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?
A ceremony which included a flower bouquet being made by guests bringing flowers forward and then the maid of honour creating a bouquet which was handed to the bride. It was lovely as I described the meaning of each flower being presented. It was an awesome and unique idea.
How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?
Being there to answer any queries the couple may have, from enquiry until their special day, we explain all the processes therefore expectations are met, a rehearsal or a meeting always helps with any last minute nerves. We arrive at the couples chosen place/venue in plenty of time, making sure the couple are relaxed, we never rush our couples on their special day.
