Wonderful celebrant

Mel is a wonderful celebrant. She put us at ease from day one and went above and beyond for us. She made our wedding day very special and helped to calm our nerves with her warm, caring nature.

Anne was so supportive before and during our wedding. She communicated with us all the way through and made sure we were happy with every single detail.
So friendly, it felt like we had known Anne for years.
She was brilliant with our young kids, making them feel very relaxed to carry out their little roles on our big day. She checked in on us all on the morning of the wedding, keeping myself calm before getting married.
She went over and beyond our expectations. We are so happy that we chose Anne as our celebrant to carry out our service.
Anyone looking for a celebrant, look no further, you have found your woman. We cannot recommend Anne highly enough.

Fantastic person and professional

Tegan was amazing from start to finish. She kept us on track with all the planning and created such a personal yet light hearted ceremony. We immediately felt comfortable with Tegan and she was so friendly and professional throughout. We got so many comments of how great the ceremony was. I would highly recommend Tegan to anyone. Thank you so much for making our day so special!

Aww I can’t thank you enough. Your energy and vibe is great, we just loved you so much from the first meeting and really felt that you got us as a couple. At the ceremony just before we were to do the vows I was like fuck, will I just whip out my phone, I should have memorised these, but then you pulled out the card and I was like of course Tegan had handled it lol 😂 you helped make our day. You’re so gifted at what you do and it’s clear as day that you truly care so thank you ❤️ -Steph

Tegan thank you so much for being our celebrant, you completely made our wedding what it was and you're such a genuine heartfelt person and what you wrote just captured us so spot on. I would recommend this celebrant to anyone 100 times over, the warmth and love and care was so present and such a beautiful start to our marriage. -Sasha

The one and only Lucy Black!

We looked at many different celebrant’s when booking our wedding, and then we found Lucy. She’s is one of the most down to earth, kind hearted and sounded person you will met. She’s so welcoming, easy to get along with and just makes all the worries clear. We are so grateful that she had our date free and booked her right away. From our first (video) meeting, to the wedding day she kept in contact and even came to see me a few hours before the ceremony just to make sure everything was going as planned. We loved that she was part of our special day ♥️. Thanks so much Lucy and thistle ceremonies ♥️

Best Celebrant for the best day!!

For a couple who love eachother very deeply, we really don't often show it too much outside of our own little bubble! So for us, picking a Celebrant who made us comfortable with standing up in front of all our family & friends in a way that felt authentic to us was so important. We spent a lot of time picking each of our vendors very carefully in order to create the most special day for us - and it was a combination of recommendation from our venue coordinator and reading the details on the Thistle Ceremonies website that drew us to Tegan! We were delighted that she was able to officiate our day, and when we finally got the chance to meet her in person we really couldn't have been happier. She took the time to really listen to us and our story, what we wanted for our ceremony and the ways in which we wanted to include our guests. We weren't instantly sure what exactly we wanted to include and how, but Tegan talked us through the various options for our ceremony and kept us right every step of the way for both creating the ceremony and of course the legal paperwork. When Tegan sent us through the draft of our ceremony, I was in floods of tears already!! She'd taken everything we told her and everything we wanted and packaged it up into the perfect ceremony. On the day, Tegan was such a warm, welcoming and calming presence; she has the perfect balance of being in control of everything the way we needed her to be without losing the personal touch which made every moment special.
We were delighted with our ceremony and many of our guests have commented and complimented both our ceremony and Tegan herself - even the most stoic of our guests shed a tear!!
We honestly couldn't recommend Tegan enough - as one of the most genuine, caring, lovely people we've met, we were so glad we found her and were able to have her as part of the most special day of our lives. Thank you so much Tegan!!

Amazing Anne

Annes' bubbly but natural calm brought such a relaxing and friendly tone to the ceremony which just set the pace for the whole day. We couldn’t of asked it to go any better, it was just perfect! Thank you so much for helping a very emotional Ellie with her reading. We’re so proud of her and Luna who just brought an extra dose of entertainment. From the first time we met Anne she put us all at ease, she was so approachable and her warm and friendly character was just fantastic for our two girls.

Perfectly personal ceremony

My now husband and I were married by Lucy Black on 22/09/23 and cannot recommend her enough, Lucy made our ceremony better than we could have imagined, we can't thank Lucy enough for making our ceremony so special 🥰🤵🏽‍♂️👰🏼‍♀️🤍🧡

It was incredibly personal and her attitude was just so full of joy we were asked if she was a friend - this gives you an idea of how much she makes sure you and your partners story and love is shared with your guests,

Lucy helped every step of the way answering any questions we had and happily editing our ceremony when we wanted to tweak things, even sending us the final copy post wedding day as a keepsake 🥰♥️

15/10 recommended to anyone looking for a celebrant who will go above and beyond and bring you and your partners story and love to life on the day 🥰🥰🥰

Helped to make our day perfect.

We can’t recommend Phyl highly enough !!!
From the initial “teams” meeting (as we’re based down south) to hand picking a poem that was perfect for us and for the amazing ceremony that all of our guests are still raving about.
It was honestly like having a very close family member with us ❤️ x
