Chris was wonderful!

We are so glad we chose Chris for our wedding ceremony. He made our day unforgettable. He has a lovely demeanor with the perfect blend of warmth and gravitas (he was a professional registrar). Thank You!

Excellent celebrant

We were so lucky to find civil weddings! We were looking for a celebrant that would conduct our ceremony as close to a legal wedding as possible & we weren't disappointed. Our celebrant was friendly and professional from the start. She helped up write our vows and had regular check ins up until the big day!
On the day she was exactly the calming personality we needed and we couldn't be happier with how everything went. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Civil Weddings to anyone looking for a professional, simple celebrant for your day.

Couldn’t be more pleased with our celebrant

The celebrant was a lovely man. He was professional and kept us informed at all time. We were very pleased with the service and ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Also very reasonably priced. We are very happy we chose civil weddings for our special day. Thank you

Outdoor Ceremony East Mersea

Our celebrant was fantastic at communicating all the way through our prolonged (due to Covid) wedding preparations.
He even produced his own speaker system to ensure good audio levels at our outdoor ceremony.
Highly recommended.

Loveliest Ceremony!

We wanted to give our biggest compliments to civil weddings and especially Chris Champoin who was our celebrant for the day. Planning a wedding is really hard and even harder when you do it remotely.

Chris has been absolutely fantastic with his suggestions, rewrites, and in the way he so beautifully delivered the speech.

Over the meetings we had on Zoom, Chris got to know myself and Sam very well and was able to bring this so beautifully into the ceremony.

We wanted something really special for our day and Chris has suggested a ring warming and a hand fasting ceremony which blew the guests away as they hadn't seen them done at weddings before. He was always really helpful when it came to how to write our vows, my husband is not a writer but Chris gave him some really good guidance and resources. I, unfortunately, am a writer and was extremely picky on word choices etc and Chris took it all and was just amazing with putting up with all my tedious changes!

All in all it was wonderful working with civil weddings and Chris!

Amazing experience!

We wouldn’t have gone elsewhere!!
Chris was amazing from start to finish! We had several meetings and he covered everything and made sure we had everything covered and everything our way. He went above and beyond. So grateful that he was the celebrant that married us.
Thankyou so much!

Wonderful experince

Chris was amazing throughout our journey of putting our ceremony together. He was attentive with our suggestions and worked really well with both of us to make sure everything we wanted included, was. Chris even spoke with us separately in order for our vows to remain secret and hit the right tone.

Since, we've had so many comments on how personal and great the ceremony part of our wedding was! Highly recommend.
