Kate gave us the perfect ceremony!

We found Kate through the online directory of humanist celebrants. As a French-British couple, our ceremony had a bit of an added challenge, as we were keen to honour both languages and allow both our families to follow our ceremony in their native language. Kate really rose up to the challenge, and overall created a beautiful event that was highly praised by many of our guests as one of the best ceremonies they’d ever attended!

The process for crafting the ceremony was very smooth and felt natural. We initially did not have a clear idea of what we wanted it to be like and what we wanted to include in it, but Kate was very good at guiding us at every step of the way and taking charge of the creative process when necessary, while at the same time making it feel unique and tailored to us.

One thing we really liked working with Kate is how she tried to get to know us- and we enjoyed getting to know her! This more personal approach to crafting the ceremony paid off, as it really captured our personalities and the essence of our relationship. Kate clearly put a lot of work and thought into our ceremony, which really showed in the final result. She was always open to changes at any point. She worked very closely with us and we really enjoyed the experience.

On the day, Kate’s ceremony was one of the absolute highlights of our wedding. It felt solemn, intelligent, and thoughtful, without the stiffness and pomp of religious ceremonies. It was perfectly delivered, and we enjoyed every minute of it. It shone by its authenticity and character, and there were quite a few genuine tear-jerking moments. The dual-language aspect also worked really well and was much appreciated by our guests. In sum, Kate is a brilliant celebrant and we would highly recommend her for your wedding ceremony!

Everything we could have hoped for

We found Kate through the humanist society as we wanted a ceremony that reflected us and our beliefs. We knew the moment we met that she was the right celebrant for us. Kate is warm, personable, attentive and guided us through writing the ceremony and our vows.
She gave suggestions where needed and produced the most wonderful script. We’re both emotional and worried about how we might be on the day but with Kate’s steady presence we laughed, cried and sang our way through the ceremony.
We feel so lucky to have found her and have incredible memories to cherish for the rest of our lives

Kate was insane - she made our ceremony the best experience.

Kate made it perfect!!!!! Absolutely amazing and I loved the bits she added in without us knowing to make it even more personal and hilarious. Everybody was taking about the ceremony and a lot of people had never been to a ceremony like that before and they said how much they loved it. It was the perfect amount of funny and personal with great attention to detail. Thanks so much Kate for making it so so special 🤍

The perfect ceremony

Kate did our wedding ceremony at the beginning of July. We could not have been happier with the process working with her and the ceremony itself. We felt she really listened to us and bought our vision to life and made helpful suggestions too demonstrating her experience and knowledge. We had a lot of guest commenting on how brilliant our celebrant want and that our wedding ceremony was the nicest they had been to. We couldn’t recommend Kate enough.

The art of creative and supportive celebrancy!

Kate helped us to celebrate our wedding in a way that was honest and true to who we are and how we feel about marriage. She was supportive throughout and really helped us to explore our options. She conducted our ceremony with gentle grace and generosity, and brought all our friends and family together to mark and witness the occasion in a really special way.
