A very satisfied couple - thank you Maxine!

On first meeting Maxine in person, we knew that she would be a great fit for our relaxed wedding in a beautiful country barn. Maxine was accomodating in arranging in-person meetings around our work schedule, patiently kept us on track when we let deadlines slip in the stress of wider wedding planning, and provided reassurance in the run-up to the wedding itself. We really appreciated all of Maxine's ideas and her response to our feedback, ensuring that the wedding ceremony was personalised around us. Maxine's warmth meant that she not only put our guests at ease as they were seated (on the hottest day of the year!), but also in putting a nervous bride and groom at ease. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and memorable outdoor wedding ceremony. Lyndsay and Richard Cox

Maxine was absolutely amazing as our wedding celebrant! Despite our occasional delays in responding, she delivered a flawless ceremony that was everything we had dreamed of.

Right from the start, Maxine's professionalism and commitment shone through. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, making the ceremony feel incredibly personal and special. Her warm and caring personality instantly put us at ease, making the entire planning process a joy.

On our wedding day, Maxine conducted the ceremony perfectly. Her delivery was heartfelt and struck the perfect balance between sentimentality and humor, which our guests loved. We received numerous compliments about how beautiful and touching the ceremony was.

What truly impressed us was Maxine's flexibility and adaptability. Despite our delays and last-minute changes, she remained calm and accommodating. Her ability to ensure everything ran smoothly was commendable.

Maxine went above and beyond to make our ceremony unforgettable. She incorporated our love story and personal anecdotes seamlessly, making it all the more meaningful.

We can't thank Maxine enough for her exceptional service and for being a crucial part of our special day.

The complete package!

We could not be happier with the amazing ceremony that Maxine put together for us. Nothing was too much trouble, every little detail was thought of and our ideas and feelings were at the forefront of her organisation and planning. From the compass points, to the hand-fasting, and our vows and the readings, it was all just perfect on our special day. Maxine took us from the first ideas at the very start of our journey, right through to us being man and wife without missing an iota of our wishes and wants. We could not recommend her more highly, and loved her being part of our big day.

She made our ceremony magical

We used Maxine as our celebrant on the 6th May 2023. We wanted a non religious ceremony that was centered about us as a couple and Maxine delivered. We didn't know where to start and Maxine was great in giving us options and guiding us through the process. We ended up with a handfasting ceremony and it was wonderful. Everyone commented how they didn't know that is where the saying 'tied the knot' came from. Maxine communicated our love story in such a humorous yet beautiful way that everyone was laughing one minute and tearing up the next. She made our ceremony unforgettable and truly magical.

Maxine is wonderful!

Maxine is a phenomenal celebrant. Between her warm personality and attention to detail in her questionnaires and consultations, she will help make sure your wedding ceremony is a memorable one. Maxine would always reply to questions and concerns promptly, sometimes within a matter of hours. She wrote a beautiful ceremony script tailored to our specific love story and ensured our personalities were reflected in her writing. You will not be disappointed hiring Maxine!

Supportive, friendly, flexible

Maxine was our celebrant in August 2023. From the start it is very clear that she is very invested in creating a very personalized ceremony. She provided us several drafts of the ceremony script and was very patient and open to all my revisions! We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted and she was open to providing all of them.
We live abroad and so appreciated her flexibility at having Zoom calls at times that accommodated the time difference and she agreed to meeting for a run-through just two days before the day itself (in a lovely area of the local park - good choice Maxine!).
She was also incredibly supportive in seeing to the small details of the ceremony after our wedding planner pulled out two days beforehand.
On the day Maxine presented to friends and family beautifully and was a wonderful presence.
Thank you Maxine for all your help!

A brilliant experience for us to treasure

My wife and I had the pleasure of having Maxine marry us in July 2023 and we would like to express our thanks for her expertly crafted ceremony which made this day incredibly special for us both. We cannot recommend Maxine any more highly. Maxine took care and time to get to know us as a couple and helped make this important day a brilliant experience for us to treasure.

Fantastic all round

Maxine is a fantastic celebrant, we received so much praise on our ceremony for its uniqueness and the way she mingled with everybody so easily. She also helped us organise the timings and people extremely well and always went to great lengths to ensure everything was in place to go smoothly even when we had to make last minute changes, it would have been absolute chaos without her!

I鈥檓 just hoping the photographer took some snaps of my wife and I with Maxine as she was such an integral part to the day!
