Masha and Matt Wedding
Even once our ceremony had finished, Claire went out of her way to make us feel so special and comfortable by organising a glass of champagne to celebrate.
We cannot thank her enough for all of her efforts in creating the most memorable and personal ceremony!

Warm, Engaging and Creative
Claire is the most fantastic celebrant who created us a perfect wedding ceremony!
The best celebrant in the world
In the lead up to the day Claire was attentive and responsive to feedback, and put in the extra effort to help all of our friends and family feel comfortable with their readings, and helped us with our vows. Claire curated the ceremony perfectly, making sure that everything that we felt that was important to be there, was there. She
On the day itself Claire were there with time to spare (no mean feat given the distance!). More importantly she delivered the ceremony perfectly - there were a few moments that could have taken away from the focus - the rain, problems with our speaker and local wildlife chiming in, but she made sure that they didn’t derail anything. And most importantly, it felt personal to us and our values. Put simply, when talking about the day with friends, many remarked that the ceremony was the best they’d ever seen. We agree.
Perfect and romantic
Claire made sure we had an amazing wedding. The ceremony was relaxed, funny, touching, romantic, basically perfect! Lots of our guests commented on how good Claire was, and a few said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
Thank you so much Claire xx
Cannot recommend enough!
As soon as we met Claire we were struck by her warmth, smiles and the way she made us feel completely at ease in her company. We met in person twice before our wedding day and both of these meetings were relaxed and completely unrushed. Claire asked about us as individuals and our journey as a couple and from this and the questionnaires she asked us to complete she wrote the most personal, witty and beautiful ceremony for our wedding. It even brought a tear to my husband’s eye when he heard it for the first time (which is not easy to do!)
On the wedding day itself, Claire arrived early, got herself set up without fuss and even had time to calm some of our last minute nerves! The delivery of the ceremony was absolutely spot on. We loved every minute and it seems our guests did too; so many friends and family came up to us afterwards to say how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how refreshing and personal it was.
So, in a nutshell if you want a unique, fun and relaxed ceremony on your wedding day then Claire is your gal. We absolutely cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Claire!
Best wedding ever!!
