Your Wedding Ceremony

Did you know that your wedding ceremony can be held anywhere that is
special to you and that you don’t have to be restricted to only using approved or licensed venues?

Your relationship is unique, there is no other relationship like it. You are two people coming together in your own special way, why not have a ceremony which truly expresses your love and commitment to each other in a totally bespoke, personalised and meaningful way with a Wedding Celebrant?

Why settle for a restrictive formality which is nothing more than a transaction when you can celebrate your love in your own way?

‘Your Voice, Your Choice, Your Ceremony’

– The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants motto –

What is a wedding celebrant?

A wedding celebrant is a professionally trained and fully insured official, with the skills and experience in place to create completely bespoke and personalised ceremonies.

A Ceremony with a Wedding Celebrant has no restrictions in terms of the content, format or style of a wedding, and can therefore be completely personalised.

My ceremonies contain many of the elements that you and your guests would expect to see at a wedding (exchange of vows and rings etc), but also lots of beautiful details about the couple and often guest involvement too. This means the ceremony is warm and relaxed, and ensures we create lovely lasting memories for everyone attending.

 

James and Jessica

Lauren was our celebrant for our wedding day in August 2021 and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant who really takes the time to get to know you individually and as a couple.

We had such a great initial meeting with Lauren (albeit remotely!) that we knew we would be in very safe hands on the day. Lauren wrote such a beautiful script for the ceremony and allowed us to tweak it so it was just right.

She provided us with lots of help and advice along the way including lots of information on writing our own vows – I am so glad we had your help as this was such a special moment during the ceremony!

It was such a pleasure to have you join our wedding celebrations and we can’t thank you enough for making our big day so special.xxx

Lizzie & Lee

Lauren was recommended to us by friends and we’re so glad we chose her to be the celebrant for our wedding day. Lauren was perfect throughout, even with covid meaning we had to change the date three times!!!

She worked with me and my husband at every stage to build the perfect ceremony script to fit in with our story and personalities, which really created such a beautiful ceremony on the day.

We really appreciate everything Lauren did for us and would 1000x recommend her to all on the search for the perfect celebrant!

Lucy and Adam

We choose Lauren as our celebrant for our wedding and it was the best decision.

She made us feel comfortable and welcome at all times! She was very kind and considerate to every situation. She guided us in every way and provided us with help, support needed for our big day.

She really got to know us and our family that meant the world to us.

Thanks so so much! You really made our day perfect.

Nisha and Jas

We chose Lauren to be the celebrant for our wedding day and what a fantastic choice it was. It was by chance that I stumbled upon her website but as soon as I did, I knew she would be perfect for us!

Lauren worked with us as a couple to best understand our story and put together a beautiful ceremony, one that was very moving and emotional for all.

Lauren was always on hand if we needed anything, provided great support and suggestions and was just an all round beautiful person that oozed positivity!

Lauren, thank you so much for making our big day so special! Both Jas and I greatly appreciate everything you did for us!

 

Jess and Tom

It was such a fantastic day, we could not stop smiling from start to finish.
Thank you for everything!

Amber and Jon Horsley 

Amber and Jon were going to ask a friend to conduct their outdoor ceremony – until Mum stepped in and suggest they ask a Celebrant, I became involved only three weeks prior to the day – this is Ambers’ feedback …
“No, thank you! Thank you for coming and helping us out! We would have chosen you if we had started looking early enough anyway! Thanks again Lauren, we couldn’t have chosen anyone better to come and help us and I thought it was perfect. Just the vibe I was going for. x”

Charlotte and Lee

“Thank you so much for delivering our wedding ceremony at Rugby School. We loved how personal the service was – so much better than just having a registrar! We had a wonderful day from starts to finish – even though I managed to pick the hottest Bank Holiday on record! Thanks again for all your help, Love, Charlotte and Lee”

HOW I WORK

Save the date!

The first thing to check is, am I free on your chosen date? Fingers crossed it’s all good, so we can start on our journey together, so exciting!

Getting to know you

I love to get to know my couples and where possible meet up for a coffee, cake and chat, it’s so important we get on and that you like and trust me with one of the most important days of your life!!

Of course, there is always Zoom and Whatsapp, if we are restricted as in recent times! I then pencil in your provisional date for 14 days, giving you time to make a decision, and that becomes ‘set in stone’ when you send ‘save your date’ deposit over!

Staying in touch

I keep in touch and about six months before the big day I send over a questionnaire, so as I can get to know you better, from this I draft a script, including suggestions on poem’s, readings and music if you need them!

The balance payment is due 28 days before the day, and you will receive your draft script just after this!

Final checks

You can add, edit change this and we decide on a final version way before the big day! I also add last minute changes if required and sometimes ask that you keep your vows secret until the day, I love the element of surprise and so will your other half, it’s a really magical moment!

We will have met a few times by now, I love coffee and cake, and we will most definitely meet the day or week before the day for the ‘all important’ rehearsal.

On The Day

On the day I always arrive early and set up my speaker if required, liaising with the music maestro and I also ensure your photographer knows my running order – we must make sure he captures those special moments, ring exchange, vows and most importantly that beautiful – you may kiss your bride/groom – moment!!

Our relationship

I hope I become more than just the person who conducts your wedding, I am in touch with all my couples, we have become such good friends on our journey together and I can’t wait to connect with you !
