Last update: February 2024

Hi, my name is Ali WIlliams, and I am the Independent Wedding Celebrant behind Perfect Ceremony. I am based in Bromley, Kent, so geographically, I'm able to work with couples in and around Kent, London, Sussex, , Surrey and beyond. I’m also keen to connect with Bedfordshire based couples because it’s where my parents are based, so I regularly visit the area. I am incredibly passionate about bringing every couple's dream ceremony to life - and being an Independent celebrant, we can get really creative and have a lot of fun. Whatever it is that you envisage for your big day; romantic, heartwarming, poignant, playful, magical, emotional, memorable, fun or quirky, I promise to create the perfect ceremony for you and your partner. One that then sets the right tone and atmosphere for the rest of your special day.

Services Offered

Here at Perfect Ceremony, I specialise in non-religious services and can not only perform wedding ceremonies but also civil partnership ceremonies, renewal of marriage and partnership vows and commitment ceremonies. Whatever couple milestone you're celebrating, I will craft a ceremony that celebrates who you and your partner are as a couple - as well as individuals. In the months prior to your big day, we will work together using my bespoke questionnaires. These questionnaires are not designed to replace our conversations but rather to complement them. I hope to learn lots about you both as we prepare for your ceremony, and by breaking down my questionnaires into manageable sections, it feels less imposing. I also hope it will give you a regular monthly reminder as we approach your big day of some of the most special moments in your journey together so far. I also have a huge catalogue of readings, poems and musical ideas that I can send to really help enhance your ceremony.

It is at this point (with your love story, personalities, and values in mind) that I draft a script for your ceremony and incorporate your vows, readings, poems, music, and symbolic actions if chosen. You can make changes to your script as many times as you like. I can help fine-tune your vows, and I can even sing you down the aisle if there is a special song that resonates with you both.

So please feel free to get in touch for a 'no strings' chat, and if you chose to work with me, I promise your ceremony will be fun, unique, memorable but most importantly, perfectly personal to you!

Fantastic Personal Experience Going Above and Beyond

When we got engaged my fiancé Stephen and I knew exactly where we wanted to hold our wedding, Eagle Heights, a fantastic local wildlife foundation which I had been visiting since I was 10 years old, and until the birth of our baby girl had had the privilege of working at.
The only issue was that Eagle Heights did not have a licence to hold legal marriages. Having done some research, we settled on the idea of having the legal part of our marriage performed at our local registry office and to have a commitment ceremony performed by a celebrant in front of our family and friends at Eagle Heights.
This is where Ali came into the picture! Having found her through a celebration company we quickly formed a solid, positive relationship. Ali understood the vibe we wanted and made the process easy and fun. In fact, it was such a great experience that we decided to extend our wedding celebration and include a naming ceremony for our baby girl too.
Ali really went above and beyond to make our big day exactly what we wanted. She made sure we knew what was going to happen when and kept us calm when we were feeling the nerves of being up in front of our guests. She even bravely volunteered to hold enticing titbits for Thelma the stunning Barn Owl who delivered our rings to us!
We could not have asked for a better day. Many of our friends and family commented on how lovely the ceremonies were and how special it was. It would not have been the same without Ali as our celebrant. We wholeheartedly would recommend her for anyone looking for someone to lead a special occasion.

Ali listened to all our requests and made our event absolutely perfect. She is so easy to talk to and spent time with us to really understand our needs. We can thoroughly recommend her.

When you want your celebrant to be a guest at the wedding you like them that much!!!

What can I say about Ali, she was amazing from start to finish. SO bubbly, friendly, chatty, positive, just everything you could want in a celebrant to lead the biggest day of your life! From the in-person meetings pre-wedding, the WhatsApp countdown HYPE MAN vibes (that we loved) through to the day itself, all just perfect. She completely commanded the rooms attention in the best way possible on the day, and fit in with everyone. So chatty, happy just an all round buzzing amazing person. If you’re looking for a celebrant or considering whether to have a humanist ceremony or not, please look no further. The personalisation this brings especially with Ali, really makes your day shine even more.

Absolutely fantastic!!

Ali is the perfect celebrant!! She was such a big part in making our day as special as it was. It all starts with the initial conversations and prep work where Ali puts so much care, time and effort into creating a ceremony which was the perfect fit for us, and we had such a good time along the way. Really can’t recommend her enough, thank you so much Ali! Xx

Celebrant, good times, come on!

We were so happy to have Ali as our celebrant. It was a pleasure working with Ali and nothing seemed to phase her. We made a couple of changes to our original plan for the ceremony and Ali accommodated without any trouble. Even on the day, we had to move the ceremony indoors last minute due to poor weather and my 11 mth old decided she wanted to stay in my arms as she was overdue a nap, but not a problem for Ali! The ceremony still went smoothly, delivering our story with great energy, humour and enthusiasm which our family and friends enjoyed.
We would highly recommend Ali as a celebrant.

Wedding celebrant

When we first spoke to Ali, we instantly knew she’d be our celebrant! She is so warm and friendly and goes out of her way to get to know you as a couple so she is well equipped to tell your special story.

Ali ran a very streamlined process - she sent us questionnaires in the lead up to our wedding, some of which we filled out together and others separately. Personally for us one of the best parts was that we got to reminisce some incredibly special moments from our relationship whilst answering these questions.

Ali was also very willing to take our comments into account and revised the ceremony script a few times to ensure we were fully satisfied.

She was always available to jump on a call and answer any questions, and also made herself available to come meet us at the venue for a mini rehearsal.

Ali has an infectious laugh and an incredible personality - our family and friends loved her at the wedding and the way she led our wedding ceremony. Thank you so much Ali for some very special moments and great memories!

We wholeheartedly recommend Ali as a wedding celebrant - one of the best wedding decisions we made!

The best celebrant you could hope for!

It’s such an important decision finding the right celebrant for your wedding and having chatted to three others we were still looking for the perfect fit when a friend recommended Ali. From the first conversation we knew she was the one! She is great fun and her attention to detail is very reassuring, she made the whole process very easy for us and kept in touch throughout the planning process. She took the time to really get to know us, our children and our dog which enabled her to write a personal and beautiful ceremony. She also attended our wedding venue open day with us so she could get a feel for the venue before the day, and we had a rehearsal at the venue the day before the wedding. So she gave a lot of her time to make it perfect for us.
Ali is also a brilliant singer and sang me down the aisle before our ceremony. It was all unforgettable and after our wedding she sent us the script of our ceremony which we’ll treasure forever!
Thank you again Ali xxx

Perfect Blend of Warmth and Professionalism!

Ali's warmth and professionalism made our wedding truly special. From the first Zoom meeting to the personalized script, every moment was seamless and enjoyable. Her genuine interest in us as a couple and dedication to crafting a unique ceremony made our day unforgettable. Ali's comforting energy and perfect balance of formality and joy added an extra layer of magic. Choosing Ali as our celebrant was one of the best decisions we made. We're grateful for the extra mile she went, driving down two days prior for a rehearsal. Thank you for making our day truly unforgettable.
