About

Are you looking to turn your ceremony from the 'bit before the free drink' to the 'most memorable part of the day'? I can help with that. Unlike the generic ceremony we have all seen a thousand times, I don't just 'insert name here', I get to know you and your stories and together create a completely personal, totally bespoke ceremony.

Whilst I am happy to perform a ceremony of any style, that is the beauty of a Celebrant wedding; no rules! My natural style would be traditional but not formal. I take the outline of a 'traditional' ceremony, with maybe a reading and some music, the vows and the rings, and I fill it with personal anecdotes and intimate stories to create a relaxed, memorable, funny, beautiful ceremony for you and your guests.

I don't want people to sit up straight when they see me at the end of the aisle, by the end of the ceremony I want them to feel like we're old friends. Which by the day itself, we will be! I truely care about you and your special day, and want to take time to get to know you both and give you the ceremony you deserve.

You're getting married, why settle for mundane when you can have bloomin' magnificent!

    Olivia is Simply the Best!

    We were lucky enough to find Olivia in our search for a celebrant. From our very first meeting we knew that she was exactly who we were looking for to conduct our ceremony.

    Olivia is so easy to talk to - it instantly feels like you've been friends for years & after our first meeting we both commented that we could have kept chatting to her all day.

    She really got to know us, and showed such genuine interest in finding out who we were as a couple, so that she could create a ceremony that completely reflected us & our story. The ceremony that Olivia delivered on our big day was everything we could have ever wished for, and more.

    So many of our guests have commented on how much they loved our ceremony, with many saying it was the most personal, enjoyable and memorable ceremony they had ever been to.

    The ceremony really was one of our favourite parts of the whole day & something that will stay with us forever, thanks to Olivia.

    If you are thinking about booking her, stop thinking and just do it!

    Ooooh You Make Me Liv

    Sally and I needed a Celebrant for our 25th wedding anniversary/vow renewal and had Olivia recommend to us by our venue’s event manager. It was the perfect match.

    We wanted someone who shared our desire to be fun and informal, and we lucked out with Olivia.

    All of our meetings prior to the event were done over Zoom, which saved so much travel time and were just as effective as meeting face-to-face. Olivia’s personality shines through immediately, and we were quickly chatting like old friends.

    The whole process of creating the ceremony was made really easy by Olivia’s structured approach and questions, and she was a big help working with Sally to write her vows. Her speech about us at the beginning of the vow renewal, hit the perfect, informal tone and kicked the event off beautifully.

    If any more proof were needed that she was our ideal Celebrant, during our final Zoom call I asked Olivia if she wanted to hear the song we were walking in to. She said, “It’s not going to make me cry is it?” to which I replied, “I don’t think so.” Her reaction when I played Your My Best Friend by Queen was priceless. “This is mine and my Mum’s favourite song!” she shouted. It was clearly meant to be.

    Our Perfect Ceremony

    We had a vision when we began our wedding preparations, but 2020 and life had a different idea for us. Up until literally a month before our wedding, we had planned for a close friend to be our celebrant, but unfortunately life threw them a curveball. Our wedding planner was quick to recommend Olivia, saying she would suit our personalities and the vibe we were after.
    And let us tell you, because we cannot stress enough, how absolutely amazing Olivia turned out to be. She made our ceremony PERFECT. It was everything we hoped for, lighthearted and fun, but also sincere and personal. We were so nervous about being up there, but she made us feel comfortable. She brought tears to all of our eyes while simultaneously making us laugh. Every single one of our guests spoke about how brilliant she was. She even reached out to our close friend who could not attend, in order to include his words in our ceremony. She was above and beyond our expectations, and I highly recommend Olivia to anyone. She will make your ceremony feel so incredibly special and one of the highlights of your day.

    Olivia MADE our day!!! Love! Love! Love!

    Olivia was a delight from start to finish. Charming, hilarious, poignant, thoughtful, camping and dependable are but a few adjectives that come to mind. She really did go above and beyond in crafting our wedding ceremony and making the whole process of working with her such a pleasure. SO many friends and family members relayed (and frankly gushed) at how great she was. To anyone in search of a celebrant - Olivia is THE ONE! Thank you so much Olivia!!

    Best Celebrant!

    We had an incredible wedding ceremony by Olivia - her beautiful words and great sense of humour really stood out. Our guests were complimenting how great she was for the rest of the day! She was an absolute delight from the first time we met her and great fun to work with. She got to know us and listened to our preferences to create a perfect bespoke ceremony. We can't recommend her enough!

    The most amazing celebrant

    Olivia was absolutely incredible from start to finish. From the moment that we met her, we instantly clicked and knew she was the right choice for us. Leading up to the day, Olivia was always available to discuss all things wedding and was amazing in helping us negotiate the stresses of organising a wedding during covid. She would regularly check in with us and it was so lovely to finally be able to meet her in person prior to the big day! On the wedding day, our ceremony was perfect. She made us feel so comfortable and it was clear that she had really taken the time to get to know us as a couple. It was so personal to us and we had many people tell us afterwards about how it was the best wedding ceremony they had been to because of this face. We honestly cannot recommend Olivia enough and feel like we might have to renew our vows with her every year!!!

    The absolute best celebrant for an incredibly meaningful ceremony balanced with laughs and (happy) tears

    Olivia performed the ceremony for our wedding at the Old Royal Naval College in London and she was amazing. Olivia is so warm, funny, and kind in addition to being charismatic and an incredibly gifted public speaker. Olivia took the time to get to know us as a couple and prepared a ceremony that was perfect for us. She took the time to learn what was important to us in a wedding ceremony. The ceremony she performed for us captured our love and relationship perfectly, and it struck a balance between being sentimental and meaningful, with some laughs scattered throughout. So many of our guests told us after the ceremony that they had never attended a wedding ceremony like ours and were similarly wowed by how amazing she was. Our ceremony performed by Olivia was the perfect way to start our wedding day! Olivia was such an important part of our wedding and truly made the day so special

    Celebrant lols

    Olivia really set our wedding off to the most amazing start and led the way for the rest of the day. Her ceremony was funny, clever and full of love. She spent time before the event getting to know us (over a few drinks) and because of this really summed up how we felt about each other. We had so many people telling us they loved Olivia and had never seen someone who hit all the right notes before. She was very flexible also. She asked us what we wanted, and included things that were very personal to us.
    Thanks so much Olivia for making our day so special.

    Look no further. You’ve found your person.

    Finding a Celebrant is about more than just finding someone who’s vibe you like. We fell in love with Olivia immediately. That’s a given. What we couldn’t have known back then is the commitment and dedication Olivia would show to make our wedding an incredible experience.

    The day before our wedding Olivia got seriously bad food poisoning. (She told the story on her IG. Highly recommended for drama and laughs).

    She messaged us to say she was really ill and there was a chance she wouldn’t be able to make it to our wedding (a 4 hr drive for her). Olivia knew this would be hugely stressful for us, so she did everything imaginable to create a plan A, B, C, D to make sure we were taken care of regardless of what happened.

    The next day, Olivia managed to get out of bed and her lovely Dad drove her 4 hours to the wedding.

    She did the most incredible job. We laughed, cried and were full of joy. Almost all the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

    No one had any idea Olivia was still rather unwell. What a trooper.

    Thank you so much Olivia! We couldn’t imagine our wedding day any other way x

    6 stars if I could..

    Olivia was incredible, we could not recommend her enough. From our first zoom, to first coffee catch up, numerous insta chats and to the day of the wedding, she was nothing short of spectacular!

    Olivia wanted to get to know us as a couple first and we loved getting to know her too. She delivered our story to our guests in the most amazing way, sentimental but adding humour along the way. Our guests could not stop talking about how brilliant she was. Thank you for making our day so special.

    Absolutely a must have for your ceremony

    My partner and I really wanted a personal ceremony. we came across Olivia by recommendation by my sister and I have never been more impressed by someone's professionalism friendliness or humour . Not only does she listen to your queries and concerns, but she also reassures you with a abundance of care and compassion for any issues you may be facing. She has been flexible and understanding to what my partner and I required for our wedding day, and we couldn't recommend her highly enough. She made our ceremony what it was and the results were incredible. We had so many comments from our guests saying that Olivia was such a lovely celebrant and that she was so friendly, they also said that our ceremony was so personal and really lovely to witness. if you are looking for a celebrant Olivia is the girl for you!!

    Olivia, you're simply fantastic!

    When we embarked upon our search for a celebrant, it was safe to say that we didn't really know where to start. Fortunately, we came across Olivia, who was absolutely fantastic at guiding us through it. From our first meeting with Olivia, we just loved her enthusiasm and we were so pleased with the ceremony that Olivia prepared for us. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how they found it to be a real highlight of the day. Thank you very much, Olivia!

    Olivia is a dream!

    Olivia made our day, nothing was too much, she was hilarious, yet so professional. If she didn’t have to go, we'd of happily had her as a guest. EVERYONE asked who she was, how we found her and how amazing she was!

    Could not be happier!

    From start to finish Olivia was exceptional in guiding us through the many options we had for our ceremony. Due to Covid, we did not have the luxury of a long deadline to re-plan our day, but Olivia was straight on the case from first communications, springing into action to make our day as special as possible.

    From initial conversations it was clear to see the level of industry knowledge and experience Olivia has, helping to answer our questions, hear our worries and offer advice on anything we were unsure of. It was a relief knowing that we were in such safe hands and definitely made the process so much more enjoyable and relaxed!

    Every part of our Ceremony was customisable and Olivia worked hard to get to know us (virtually- thanks Covid!) which was so much fun in itself! Olivia tailored the ceremony to be a fantastic reflection of our personalities, whilst making sure that each detail we wanted was woven in. Reading the draft before the day made us laugh (and cry in parts!) and it would be perfect for us- needing no editing at all.

    Olivia has the perfect energy and personality to really make a difference to your wedding day. We cannot count the number of times our guests referenced the ceremony, wording, Olivia's spirit and humour, and the fact it was such a special part of the day.

    For anyone considering a celebrant, I would honestly say to get in contact with Olivia- you will have the most fun journey leading up to your wedding, and you can guarantee that the delivery on the day will leave you (and all attendees) remembering it for a lifetime.

    We cannot thankyou enough.

    Beth & Alex
