Hello thank you for taking a look at my profile. I am an award-winning Independent Celebrant based in Suffolk but my passport is up to date and I am more than happy to travel.
What does "Independent" mean? Well it is our license to have fun and the freedom to create a ceremony together that doesn't have to follow anyone else's rules or ideas of how your special day should be. Together we can create the ceremony you have always dreamed of or maybe one that you just didn't even realise you could have. You can hold your ceremony anytime, anyplace, anywhere, well maybe my skydiving days are over but do you get my point.
Which ever one of life's important milestones you are looking to celebrate I will be there to support you from the moment you book me.
Through emails, zooms and meet ups I will take the time to listen to you and get to know exactly what it is you want from your special ceremony. Through this fun process I gather enough information to write a draft script weaving the love you want to celebrate into every section. Once we have fine tuned it together, I will deliver your ceremony on the day in a calm, professional fun filled manner that you, your family and friends will remember and cherish for years to come.
In October last year I was honoured to be voted Outstanding Family and Couples Celebrant of 2022 by the Association of Independent Celebrants. I was completely blown away by this honour and the kind words of those who voted. My couples said that found me to be warm and caring with a good sense of humour. They considered me a safe pair of hands for their ceremonies, well I used to be a driving instructor so I have nerves of steel !!
It therefore goes without saying that my celebrant style really does reflect my inclusive personality. I really just love to celebrate love however it presents itself in your world. I understand how important your celebration is to you and how much love and work you have poured into it. I will be there for you and guide you through every step of the build up to your big day.
It would be my absolute privilege to be a part of your special day, My aim is to make every ceremony a #hellofabulousceremony. Let's have a chat.

Most perfect ceremony
From the very beginning she can’t not be more helpful and wholesome, I was initially drawn to Ruth’s buzzy magnetic energy, and really beautiful speaking voice and way with words (as previewed in her instagram) the additional help and support she delivered was such a pleasant surprise, and I think she offered the most additional support out of all of my suppliers. All of our friends and family have said that our ceremony was absolutely magical, one family member said Ruth was perfect as she like like and extension of me and my Husband. The unique touches she adds to a ceremony are top notch. I hold a very special place in my heart for this lady now and can not recommend her enough to any couple looking for a celebrant!!! Thankyou Ruth from the bottom of our hearts for conducting our whimsical woodland fairytale ceremony- you really were the cherry on the cake

Our day wouldn't have been what it was without Ruth, and we're so thankful we found her!
Perfect Personalised Wedding
The most wonderful celebrant!
Ruth is the celebrant of your dreams!!!
She gave us the perfect day and helped us with planning the ceremony from the moment we had our first conversation. In fact a lot of the planning was whilst we were in Canada and she popped on zoom whenever we needed her as well as visiting the venue together. She is so dedicated and kind, working hard to give you an extra special ceremony and we honestly cannot reccomend her enough.
It was like having a very talented member of the family conduct our ceremony with such happiness, love, emotion and fun. Every single one of our guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever seen and that they enjoyed every moment. Ruth not only worked with us to craft a beautiful script about our relationship and our lives, but also helped us to add extra details like a hand fasting moment, personalised vows and a poem read by Josh's mum.
She also helped us to feel relaxed about the ceremony and we felt so reassured that she would help solve any problems on the day. She has the sweetest heart and the most beautiful way with words. Ruth, we'll be thankful forever for all your kindness!
The Perfect Ceremony! 17.06.2023
Ruth was just absolutely incredible from the first time we met her, through to the day of the wedding! She was always at the end of the phone whenever needed and was so calming. We grew such a good relationship with her during the year of planning the wedding and she would come over for meetings and we would love a chat, we grew a bond straight away.
Ruth wasn't just a celebrant, she was there on the morning of the wedding, helping my husband and the groomsman with their button holes, she came to see me before hand and gave me a big hug to calm my nerves and also was there greeting with our families. She was just so fantastic. After the ceremony she also spoke with our family and friends and had a drink with us to celebrate during the reception drinks. She was apart of our special day.
The ceremony itself couldn't of gone any more perfect and even now 6 months later our guests are still talking about how much laughter, happy tears, emotion and love there was in the room during the ceremony. It was made so personal for me and my husband and that's exactly what we wanted. Ruth listened to every detail.
Thank you Ruth for being such a special part of our day, you will forever remain part of our lives. Lots of love, Paige & Ollie xx
Ruth is simply the best!
