    Excellent service from a lovely celebrant

    Ruth worked with us from our early conversations right through to the ceremony to help us create a personal, warm and beautiful wedding service. During our discussions, she was insightful but receptive to our suggestions and desires. She asked us lots of questions to make sure she understood what we were looking for and to get it just right for us. She put forward lots of ideas whilst also allowing us freedoms and flexibilities to ensure the wording for the ceremony felt like us and reflected our love story. Following the ceremony, we received lots of comments from our guests about how moving and special it was. Ruth is a true professional, who went above and beyond to get to know us and put us totally at ease before our big day. We would recommend her to any couples looking for a personable and confident celebrant. Thank you Ruth!

    A perfect day thanks to Ruth

    Ruth is such a lovely person, helpful, professional and put us at ease from our first meeting to discuss the wedding. Notably, Ruth was so accommodating and supportive whilst planning a wedding through a pandemic - which is not an easy feat - and therefore very much appreciated!

    We wanted a ceremony that was relaxed and Ruth got it exactly right. She took the time to get to know us both, and incorporated lots of small details which made it really personal. Ruth was really pro-active in checking the script drafts with us and making any edits we suggested, as well as patient and accommodating when we were being a bit slow to complete our end! We chose to write our own vows and Ruth was very helpful to send tips on this, and also different readings so we had lots of example to work from. Ruth made sure all the readings and vows were prepped on the day, so we really had nothing to worry about, and the day ran smoothly and stress-free!

    I'm so glad we chose Ruth, we had so many lovely comments on our ceremony, and she really made it feel special and memorable. It was a joy to have Ruth as part of our day, and we would definitely recommend Ruth as your celebrant give both a professional and personal touch to your ceremony.

    Hi Rosie and Tom, Thank you so much for your kind and beautiful words which I really appreciate. You both looked so happy on your day and had been so patient in all the planning and rearranging due to the Covid restrictions. Your venue looked amazing and as I mentioned on the day, it was a privilege and a pleasure working with you both to create your wedding ceremony. Thank you so much and best wishes to you both

    Dear Ruth, Thank you! Tom and I had such a wonderful day - I enjoyed myself way more than I imagined I would or could!

    It all felt so relaxed, so thank you for getting the day off to the right start. So many of our friends and family commented that the ceremony was very special and personal. Exactly as we had hoped.
