Amazing Celebrant!

Gary did an amazing job officiating our wedding ceremony and I would highly recommend him. Me and my Wife enjoyed working through the details of the ceremony with him. Gary is very charismatic and tells your love story as if he's known you forever. I think he's a great orator and knows how to grab the attention of his audience. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

Amazing Celebrant for our Big Day at Burghley House

Where to start other than with a big thank you?
Gary was our Wedding Celebrant during our big day back in August 2022 at Burghley House.
Everything went so smoothly, from the moment we got in touch with Gary, to the Wedding itself.
We had so much fun filling up our couple's love story questionnaire so Gary could write a bespoke ceremony for us, and it was just perfect! It was reflecting well our personalities and with a little touch of humour to keep the atmosphere dynamic.
Gary even accepted to perform a Hand Fasting Ceremony and he followed the process perfectly.
It felt so special and our family and guests kept telling us how great our Celebrant and the wedding ceremony were.
So thank you so much for making our Wedding such a special day!

Magical, adaptable and perfect

Gary is an amazing, adaptable and easy going celebrant, who works with you. He is willing to build your perfect day step by step until you and your partner are happy with the final draft for your ceremony. He will also change and add bits last minute if you are not happy with or forget to tell him something. He is a very kind and thoughtful person who strives to make your day amazing.

Hi Gary

I’v been meaning to message for a while. Thanks so much for your expert celebrantship (if indeed that is a word) of our wedding (June 2) The guests were amazed at your knowledge and insight and couldn’t believe that we hadn’t known you for years! It was such a special day to which your contribution was central and very much appreciated by Janette and I.

The Vinehill-Dunns

Gary was an absolutely wonderful celebrant and delivered the most perfect ceremony for our wedding.

From start to finish he was incredible, lovely, kind-hearted, funny and compassionate. The list of superlatives to describe how brilliant Gary was, is literally endless.

You will not regret booking him for a single moment, from the communication to the organisation to the delivery to the added extras like filming your ceremony on his 360 degree camera - wow.

We received an absolutely tremendous amount of compliments about Gary and the ceremony from our guests and family too, who have genuinely not stopped talking about it ever since!

Beyond perfect!

Gary was absolutely amazing!! He tailored our ceremony to us after finding out about our backstory and where we began, our little quirks and made a ceremony that reflected us as a couple perfectly. Added with a sprinkle of humour to make us our guests laugh. Gary is a lovely person with attention to detail and checked in every step of the way to make sure we were happy with the ceremony script and comfortable. I could not recommend enough! Thank you!

Fabulous! He really made our wedding.

Great contact throughout, very personal and touching ceremony. Arrived in well enough time to meet with guests and stayed after for a chat, everyone commented how lovely the ceremony was.

A Fab ceremony indeed!

We were looking for a celebrant to do our ceremony for our second wedding (1st one was heavily restricted by that pandemic). We looked around at a few celebrants but when we came across Gary, it just felt like the right fit. We met and spoke a few times before the big day and filled in a couple questionnaires so we could get to know each other and so Gary could really get a sense of what we were like as a couple and bring that into the ceremony. It was all worth it because on the big day, it felt like we had somebody who was really invested in us to tell our story. The ceremony made us laugh and think and feel, it just reflected us and our story.

Gary offered for us to see the script beforehand and make as many changes as we wanted so that we could make sure it was just right but we chose not to see most of it because we wanted it to be a surprise and I'm so glad we did. It was in Gary's good hands and meant we could hear it all for the first time along with our guests and genuinely laugh and experience it with them. We got lots of our guests saying how brilliant Gary and the ceremony was.

If you're looking for a celebrant to authentically tell your story in a ceremony with a good few laughs thrown in, Gary's your man.

Fab by name fab by nature

When we met Gary we just knew he was perfect for the kind of ceremony we wanted for our wedding - it was so important to us as a couple that our ceremony reflected the journey we had both been on that lead us to our wedding day & Gary was so open to learning about Sobriety & how important it was to us both & how we wanted this to be worded in our ceremony & no ask was to much. You were amazing & not only did we think this we’ve had so many lovely things said about our ceremony from all of our guests as well both old & young alike thank you would never be enough
