Unique & Unforgettable.

From beginning to end, Connie was an absolute dream to collaborate with.
Initially, we were only looking to find a celebrant for our ceremony, but with Connie, we found so much more! We were incredibly grateful as Connie not only provided invaluable advice along the way, wrote and delivered an incredible ceremony, and helped the day run smoothly but also showed who we are as a couple in a fun and unique way.
Ourselves and our guests loved the very personal ceremony, and everyone commented that they had never seen a wedding like it - she even impressed my grumpy uncle!

Thank you so much, Connie, for everything you did on the day and leading up to it - you made it unforgettable.

Everything we hoped for and more!

Connie was an iconic part of our wedding day. She fully lived up to her billing, writing witty and wonderful words to provide a beautiful look back through our lives together. All our guests loved her ceremony, which set up the fun and happiness for the rest of our day perfectly.

In the months beforehand, we had trips to the pub, alongside Zoom calls and WhatsApp messages, where Connie gave us so many great ideas about what our ceremony could be like. She added added a huge amount of fun and magic to the build up and planning stages, to make us forget about other elements that were becoming stressful. She even joined us for an evening of Disco Bingo at our chosen venue, to help get an idea of who we were as a couple and what the feel of the big day should be.

We honestly cannot recommend Connie enough to other couples. She is immensely thoughtful, a very talented writer and an extremely confident and assured presence, who will immediately put you at ease when you stand up in front of your guests. On top of everything else she was a great friend throughout, and booking her was easily one of the best decisions we made. 10/10!

Every wedding should have a Connie!

I wish we had more space to say how much we enjoyed working with Connie! From start to finish, she made the whole process easy and was such a great support when we had a few (outsider) hiccups along the way. From reassurance on WhatsApp to video calls that made us remember why we were getting married in the first place - she was a dream!

What can we say about the ceremony, it was perfect! Connie really got to know and understand us a couple and made everything so personal and special. Our guests loved it, we loved it, and everyone cried happy tears after listening to her beautiful words. Thank you!

We were lucky enough to nab Connie for the whole day of our wedding and she kept our guests - and us - laughing all day. So many people told us it was the best wedding they’d been to and it was, in large part, to how well Connie managed everyone.She was a great MC/host, and a fantastic booking for our wedding. 10/10 recommend!

Thank you for making our day the best day ever. We love you, Connie!

Simply Amazing!

WOW! What can we say! Connie was just PERFECT for our wedding ceremony - she had exactly the vibe we were looking for - someone a little bit unique, open, funny and a master with words to complement our own unique ways and pull off the ceremony we wanted with wit and wonder! All of our guests have said how brilliant the ceremony was and completely different to anything they’d seen before. So HUGE thanks to Connie for suggesting we write our own vows and for embracing our 32 ribbon handfasting and our jump the broom finale! You were the perfect choice and we can’t recommend you highly enough!

Celebrant weddings are the best.

Booking Connie for our wedding was the best thing we did. From meeting her for the first time to having a dance with her in the evening, we felt so at ease with her. The effort she goes to of getting to know couples really shows in her writing. We loved sharing our story with her. She managed to capture our relationship perfectly. We took her advice and wrote our own vows which I highly recommend. Every single one of our guests have commented on how great she was and how personable our wedding was. She is an incredibly warm person who brought the exact vibe we wanted to the day. She is the perfect balance of professional and fun! We also really appreciated her attention to detail and cool head on the day.

Honestly can't recommend her enough. After being to a few celebrant weddings I can't understand why you would want a registrar! Book her, we promise you won't regret it. Thank you Connie for making our wedding perfect.

Wonderful personal ceremony, full of love and laughter.

We had the most wonderful experience with Connie as our celebrant. She took so much care and time to get to know all about us and then used this to recreate our story perfectly on the day. It made our ceremony so personal and different and we had countless comments from guests about how wonderful it was and how great Connie was. We have three daughters and she found a way to include them in the ceremony beautifully.

Connie now almost 12 months on, thankyou so much for all you did and how special you made our day. It genuinely couldn’t have been any more perfect and we have the most treasured memories. You really are a master at what you do and we feel so lucky and grateful that you were our celebrant!

Couldn’t recommend Connie enough to anyone looking for a more personal ceremony full of love and laughter ❤️

The perfect personalised ceremony

You need to have Connie do your ceremony! Connie did mine and my partner's wedding and it was beyond perfect! I was the one wanting to be legally married on the same day as our wedding but after learning that you couldn't meet or choose who your registrar would be, I was a bit uncomfortable with this and so we met with Connie. She is just the kindest, bubbliest person who genuinely loves what she does and made me and my partner feel like we'd known her for years after meeting her for an hour. We knew after meeting her that we wanted her to do our ceremony. We decided to get legally married the day before our wedding to make a long weekend out of it, and while our registrars were absolutely lovely, they would not have been able to come close to doing the ceremony that Connie did. We knew that the ceremony would be personal to us through the questionnaires that we'd filled out for Connie (very easy and fun to do!), but it did not prepare us for how perfect it would be. There was so much laughter and love wrapped up in to one perfect package. Every single guest told us how amazing our ceremony and Connie was. It was our favourite part of the day by far and we can't wait to get our wedding video back so that we can relive it again and again! We have made a life long friend in Connie. She will not just be your celebrant, but will help you with vows, give recommendations, be someone you can vent family drama to and so much more! We can't recommend her enough and words cannot do her justice for what an amazing person and celebrant she is. So choose Connie!

Connie @Witandwonderceremonies

The short review: Connie made our wedding ceremony. She was fun, enthusiastic, moving, funny, she’s your biggest cheerleader and you’ll feel like you’ve known her for years after being in her presence for around 60 seconds. Words cannot possible describe how highly recommended Connie is.

Long review- buckle in:
We decided to have a celebrant about a year before we were due to get married after watching many many (lovely but) very boring registrars at our nearest and dearests ceremony’s. We knew there had to be a better way. And there was CONNIE, Connie is the better way, the best way, nay the only way.

My partner (the main wedding coordinator) asked me to look at celebrants about 6 months into our wedding planning, we looked at websites and reviews and it was Connie we decided to meet one fateful day in Wilmslow in a coffee shop.

We met, started chatting and around 5 minutes into the conversation my partner and I exchanged a this is the one look.

Connie asked us about our lives, together, separately. We met up multiple times so Connie could build us a bespoke wedding ceremony. In the build up Connie helped us make decisions we didn’t even know we would have to think about making. Her job isn’t a back up wedding planner but she moulds herself to whatever you need. Last minute family drama, she’s there, she’s got you. You need inspiration for a wedding idea - she’s here, she’s got 3.

Our ceremony itself was perfect, we laughed, we cried. And our guests didn’t stop GUSHING about Connie, and we had so many people tell us it’s the best wedding ceremony they’ve ever been to.

Connie once again thank you, we bow down to your amazing storytelling ability, we will NEVER forget the ceremony you made for us.

The perfect celebrant who goes above and beyond!

Connie was our celebrant for our wedding in August, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! From the initial intro meeting, we knew we had to have her. Warm, bubbly and personable - she kept in touch frequently in the lead up to our wedding, helped with vow ideas, and kept us up to date with how the writing of our personal ceremony was developing.

On the day, Connie went above and beyond - welcoming guests, even fixing the men's buttonholes, taking photos/videos, checking on the bridal party - and of course delivering an amazing ceremony. She spoke so well and captured the whole room. There were laughs, tears; everyone has said how fab she was. Would recommend Connie to anyone wishing for a more personal, laid back, fun ceremony that people will remember!

Simply Amazing!

If you are contemplating booking Connie for your ceremony I would urge you to do it before she’s booked up!

We didn’t even realise a celebrant led service was an option, until we were introduced to Connie through our ceremony venue, and we are so glad we were!

Connie wrote a beautiful, personal ceremony, with both humour and emotion. She captured our journey to the point of marriage perfectly, we could not have asked for more. Our guests commented throughout the day how beautiful it was, and such a wonderful change from a standard service.

Connie was responsive to any queries, not only in relation to our ceremony, but with regards to wedding planning in general! She has a wealth of knowledge, and connections to suppliers, which she was happy to share - she even checked photographer’s availability before recommending them to us!

Connie truly went above and beyond, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.
