Serving Essex, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and beyond!

I truly believe the best part of your wedding day is your ceremony, it is after all the very reason you have gathered everyone together! Everyone is super excited to witness you promising to love each other for your lifetime, so surely you would want your ceremony to be all about you?

I’m dedicated to producing one-of-a-kind ceremonies. I get to know you to find out what you would like (if your not sure what that is don't panic, I'm on your team!) I'm there to offer lots of suggestions and guidance to make it perfect for you. I then craft a showstopping script, encapsulating the romance of you, sparkling with your personality.

Experience

I have worked for over 3 decades within the Wedding Industry. I'm proud to have worked at some stunning venues in a variety of roles - Wedding & Event Coordinator, Head of Wedding Planning and Wedding Venue Manager (and loved every minute!)

I trained with the UK Society of Celebrants and gained a Diploma in FamiIy and Funeral Celebrancy.

Services Offered

A friendly, professional, fully inclusive experience with someone who believes love is love.

Not being affiliated to any particular faith or Religion means I am very happy to include anything that is important to you. You can still have traditional elements but let's make it more modern to bring your ceremony choices right up to date.

I offer wedding, commitment, elopement and vow renewal ceremonies. All ceremonies I write are beautiful, bespoke and filled with fun, laughter and celebration and delivered with flair and personality.

Nicola Collinson - Brilliant!!

Dear Nichola
As I try to process every detail and every moment from the beginning- it all starts with you!
The ceremony you created was the defining moment for the entire day. Simply stated, you were Brilliant.
You captured and told our story perfectly.
Throughout the day and evening, so many people made mention of the ceremony and how beautiful it was, 4 or 5 people told me that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended, and that they didn’t want it to end!
From our first meeting I knew you were special, I knew instantly that you understood us, and that you were the best and only person that could set the tone & carry out the most important detail of the day.

Of all the things that happened throughout the entire process of planning this wedding ceremony and reception, I am most grateful for people I have met and again, right at the very top of that list appears your name.

Not only am I so thankful for your incredible work, but I am also grateful for the amazing new friend I have made. In all sincerity, it’s not often I am lucky enough to meet a person as genuine and kind as you!

So, after this very long and winding road of words, what I really want to say is- The pleasure has been all mine / ours. Thank you for accepting our invitation to dinner, it was our honor to have you there amongst our family and closest friends!

Side note-

Not sure if you realize this- as our guest at the reception you are now auto-enrolled as a permanent resident- / not getting rid of us that easily! – how else will you ever know how our story unfolds??
Like it or not, you’re stuck with me/us! -- 😂!!

In all seriousness my friend, and from the bottom of our hearts, we are forever thankful for You and for everything you did to make our ceremony the absolute best, ever!


XOXOXOXOXO!!

More than exceeded our expectations!

We were so sad that we missed you during guest mingling and didn’t get to say this to you in person BUT – We just wanted to say how amazing the ceremony was! We both absolutely loved it, you were amazing and more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for making the most important part of our day so special and memorable, and for our keepsake. So many of our guests have said it was the nicest ceremony they’ve ever been to!

Our perfectly unique ceremony

We were one of many couples who had to postpone due to covid - we had our legal ceremony and were patiently waiting for our big party. This gave us the opportunity to have a slightly different ceremony for our big day and so we discovered Nichola.

She capture our personalities so well, and delivered the light hearted ceremony / vow renewal that we were after absolutely perfectly, it was as though she’d known us as long as our guests. Thank you so much for making our ceremony unique, you were such a special and important part of our day.

Thank you SO much!!

Nichola… Thank you SO much for making our wedding so special & personal. It was honestly our favourite part of the entire day - we loved every second of it.
You gave us the opportunity to relive & share our story with our friends & family on such a special day and we’ll remember it forever.
Thank you for guiding us through everything, we feel so lucky to have found you.
Everyone commented on how captivating, funny & sentimental the ceremony was and how they felt like they were part of it, rather than being an observer to the more “traditional” registrar led weddings - and that’s exactly what we were hoping for!
Thank you again - we’ll definitely be recommending you to any of our friends who get engaged in the future!
Lots of love & best wishes for the future,
Ross & Caitlin (aka. Mr & Mrs Dunn!)

The most wonderful ceremony with beautiful words

We had such a wonderful experience with nichola from the beginning all the way to the day - helping me make decisions as I’m indecisive! Nichola was always quick to respond to any query we had so made us feel at ease, and also made the most beautiful ceremony everyone commented how personal and intimate it was :) xx

Our Personalized Wedding Journey with Bespoke Ceremonies

We recently had the pleasure of working with Nicola from Bespoke Ceremonies as the celebrant for our wedding at Gosfield Hall, and we cannot express enough how grateful we are for the beautiful ceremony she crafted for us.

From the moment we contacted Nicola, her informative and friendly approach put us at ease. She took the time to understand us and our vision for the ceremony and offered invaluable guidance throughout the entire process.

What truly stood out about Nicola was her emphasis on creating a personalized experience that reflected our unique love story. She expertly weaved together our journey, memories, and values into a heartfelt and meaningful ceremony. Her attention to detail was evident as she incorporated personal anecdotes and included our loved ones in a way that made everyone feel connected and included.

Her clear instructions and gentle guidance made us feel confident and relaxed, allowing us to fully embrace the emotions of the day.

On the day of our wedding, Nicola's warm and approachable demeanor created an atmosphere of love and joy. She delivered the ceremony with grace, eloquence, and a genuine passion for celebrating love. Her sincerity and authenticity shone through every word spoken, leaving a lasting impression on us and our guests.

We highly recommend Nicola at Bespoke Ceremonies to anyone seeking a celebrant who is not only knowledgeable and experienced but also friendly and approachable. Her ability to craft personalized ceremonies with simplicity and warmth is a testament to her expertise and dedication to creating memorable moments.

Thank you, Nicola, for making our wedding ceremony an extraordinary experience filled with love, laughter, and heartfelt memories. We are forever grateful for your presence and the beautiful words you shared on our special day and also the vows that you so beautifully printed and packaged for us to keep for everlasting memories.

Many thanks
Luke and Kay x

The perfect celebrant for our special day!

Where do I start? Nichola is an absolute superstar! Derek and I decided last year that we wanted to come over from Australia to get married in my home town of Lincoln. I searched for celebrants and found Bespoke Celebrant Ceremonies. I called based on the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Instantly, we knew Nichola was the one. She just got us, and what we wanted for our special day. Over the course of the lead up to the wedding she took the time to get to know us both and made the whole process super easy, even with the 8 hour time difference. We didn't meet Nichola face to face until the day of the wedding but that didn't matter...it was like meeting an old friend. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and all our guests commented on how amazing Nichola and the ceremony was, particularly how fitting it was for us. She made our special day more perfect than we could ever have imagined ❤️

Amazing celebrant who captured us as a couple perfectly. Nichola was great to work with from start to finish and helped make our day perfect

Nichola, Thank you so much for everything you did for Carl and I. It was the most perfect day and I wish I could relive it.

The way you captured us in the reading was absolutely perfect and the lovely momentum we got afterwards was just amazing. It felt like our love story came to life again.

I’m still on cloud 9 at the moment.

We definitely chose right having you as our celebrant, it felt magical.

Thank you a thousand times over,

Mr and Mrs Hughes

Magical Ceremony

The first time we spoke to Nichola we both knew straight away she would be perfect for our wedding. She made our ceremony totally unique and tailored to us, also making the process so easy and relaxed. Nichola took the time to get to know us and made sure everything ran smoothly on our big day leaving us both feeling relaxed, confident and ready to enjoy the day. All our guests loved how personal the ceremony was with lots of laughs reflecting our relationship. We loved our pack which included everything from the ceremony which is a beautiful keepsake to remind us of the lovely words Nichola said on our day. We cannot thank you enough, we loved you being part of a day and highly recommend!! Lots of Love, Bethany & Luke x

Simply Beautiful

What can we say? Nichola made our ceremony better then we could have ever imagined. The time to get to know us, and write such a personal, funny and poignant passage, was simply beautiful. When you look back and reflect on the day, what Nichola created is one of those key moments both my Wife and I continue to talk about. Thank you Nichola for making our day that extra special.

Perfectly amazing

Everyone needs Nichola at their wedding! She spent 2 hours on a video call with us learning all about us and made it feel like we had know her our whole lives! From there she worked hard to put together the most perfect ceremony that reduced our guests to tears, and remarked how beautiful and perfect it was! Genuinely we could not have asked for a better celebrant, if you choose Nichola you will have the best ceremony guaranteed
