About Susan Dobinson at Beautiful Ceremonies

Congratulations on your engagement!!!

This will be your very special day and so thank you for considering me as your Celebrant. Based  in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, I travel to most places, here and abroad. When you get in touch, we will arrange a time to meet to discuss exactly what you want. This initial meeting is free of any charge and obligation as you need to be totally happy in your choice of Wedding Celebrant.

Assuming all goes well, we plan your unique ceremony – every ceremony is different. You are free to include any elements that you wish - whether these are religious or spiritual words or music; rituals such as hand-fasting or jumping the broom. Members of your families and/or friends can have special roles written into the ceremony and, if you have children, they can be given very special parts to play making the day memorable for them. It is also possible to include naming ceremonies during the ceremony if you would like to build this in. Maybe you are seeking a humanist ceremony or are planning a fusion wedding that will honour both of your religious beliefs or maybe you want something that is just about the two of you - it is your day so you choose.

If you need help with writing your vows, I will provide this and your beloved need never know there has been any input other than your own. I can provide music, readings, poetry and make other suggestions depending on what you want to include on the day. Support and guidance will be provided to ensure that every part of the ceremony is perfectly understood. You are able to contact me frequently to ensure that any last-minute questions are promptly answered. You will feel confident that everything will run smoothly to ensure a truly beautiful occasion.

There are no rules or rights and wrongs when writing your ceremony and the result is always very special and full of joy, love and laughter. What is wonderful is that you can choose where and when you marry.  We will ensure the legal formalities are completed in advance of the celebratory ceremony so that you are not restricted by the availability of licenced venues.

Where possible and if required, a partial rehearsal will be held at the wedding venue just before the ceremony – brides, and some grooms, usually ask to be excused as they are busy making themselves look even more gorgeous. 

Then, you get to the ceremony itself ……. you may feel nervous but will be on such a high of love and expectation, anticipating making your vows to each other before your guests. As you stand next to each other -  bride and groom, bride and bride or, groom and groom, you will be reassured that your ceremony is a perfect reflection of both of you. The words and music are your choice; your love story is being shared; and, your vows are yours and yours alone. 

I will be delighted to hear from you so please get in touch for an exploratory chat.  |     |   07958 112335

  • "Lovely Celebrant with a heart and sense of humour"
    Eleanor on 24 June 2018

    We are so pleased that we chose Susan - she wrote a ceremony y that was perfect for us and our families. Everything that we discussed, she remembered. Originally we were going for a registry office ceremony but someone suggested we talk to Susan so that the day would be more personal and special. Thank goodness we listened as have since attended a work colleague’s registry office wedding and felt they had been short- changed as it was very short and the Registrar could have been talking about anyone. - it felt a bit clinical. We hadn’t previously realised about the options for having our own celebrant but now will mention this to friends who are planning their own wedding. Eleanor and Nikki

  • "Friendly, caring and professional Celebrant."
    Sophie on 24 June 2018

    We were recomended to Susan and she made us feel at ease immediately. She was calm yet focused on what we wanted. Our initial meeting was very helpful and we never felt pressurised to make a booking. She made suggestions about all sorts of things but was always clear that everything was to be our decision. She gave us time to go away and think about what we wanted and we decided we absolutely wanted her to write and lead our wedding ceremony. Leading up to the day, she could not have been more helpful. The ceremony was very moving and we could not have asked for anything better. We chose a hand-fasting ritual - although we had not known anything about this previously - but it was a highlight - and the photographs were beautiful, as well. When we arrived back from honeymoon, we were surprised to receive a lovely card and gift from Susan. Thank you so much. Sophie and Mark. Waddesdon Manor - May 2017
