Frequently Asked Questions:
Who exactly are Kate and Kate?
Kate Tym and Kate Dyer are former East Sussex Marriage Registrars who have now gone freelance as celebrants. They have over ten years’ experience of conducting weddings and are professional, enthusiastic and fun – and… not a pair of sensible shoes between them! Because of their Registration background they are not only able to conduct a fantastic, bespoke, ceremony for you but they also know all the legal stuff too!
What is a celebrant?
A celebrant is a freelance equivalent of a marriage registrar. We can conduct any ceremony you like, anywhere, any time.
If it’s not a licensed premises... how will my marriage be legal?
Because you’ll just pop to the Register Office to get your legal paperwork done before having your super-dooper ceremony with us.
Where can I have my marriage celebration?
Anywhere you like. Because it’s not a legal ceremony there are no restrictions. So in a marquee, on the beach, up a tree… anything goes!
Will Kate and Kate marry people anywhere in the country?
Kate and Kate are based in Battle and St Leonards. They are happy to travel all over the country given the right circumstances.
Do Kate and Kate both perform the ceremony together?
No, unlike Ant and Dec, you will get one or other of us… FYI Kate Tym is the blonde and Kate Dyer is the reddish head -although her hair colour changes as often as the weather.
How do I book Kate or Kate to conduct my wedding?
Either email us or give us a ring. It’s helpful if you have a venue and date in mind, but we also have loads of suggestions of fabulous venues from glamping to tipis to the bandstand in the park! We ask a £100 deposit to secure the date and then we’ll get the ball rolling with a questionnaire to find out all about you. Our ceremony scripts are bespoke so, you can see and approve the script in plenty of time before the big day.
We got married abroad… can we re-do our wedding ceremony for our friends at home?
Yes, you can. As you’ve already done the legal bit abroad, you can do whatever kind of ceremony you like back in Blighty!

You've done a cracking job!
It's beautifully written with a mixture of soppy tear jerking moments and hilariously funny moments too. The balance is spot on ?
All our worries have melted away! And we can't wait to celebrate our big day with you. ?
