Hi, I am Danni and I am a Wedding Celebrant who tells love stories. I am passionate about making your wedding ceremony as memorable and personal as the rest of your big day!
Why should I have a Celebrant rather than a Registrar?
There are so many benefits to a celebrant-led ceremony - firstly, the freedom to hold the ceremony anywhere you wish, flexibility on time, inclusivity and cultural diversity, a meaningful relationship with a celebrant who is with you every step of the process and actually knows you.
Ultimately, having a service that is a reflection of you as a couple, your values, your passion, your joys, your unique stories. Your ceremony won't be like anyone else's and when you put so much creativity and vision into the rest of your big day - why wouldn't you put that into your ceremony too?
Sounds perfect... but why are you the perfect Celebrant?
I love telling love stories, but the thing I am most passionate about is helping couples achieve their vision for their perfect day. I pride myself on really getting to know my couples, so that I can share the highs and lows of event planning with you - and be someone you trust, so that when we get to the big day and I am telling your story - I know that it will feel special to you as a couple, and that your will feel comfortable with me leading your day.
I have a background in event management and used to be a speech writer - so I come armed with a wealth of experience in both fields, I have a long list of suppliers in the industry I can help recommend and put you in touch with as we move through the process.
For so many of my couples I become their wedding cheerleader, their planning partner (because you don't want to spoil every surprise telling your bridal party!), and on the day I'm often their second event planner, and sometimes even dance floor starter!
Sounds amazing... so if we want to work with you... what happens next?
If you think you might want to work with me reach out here and we will arrange a time to discuss your big day, and everything you want. I will prepare a quotation and give you time to think about if I am the right celebrant for you! Should you wish to book me we will keep in touch via instagram/facebook/whatsapp etc and arrange a time for a face-to-face meeting around 3/4 months prior to your big day, but this can be over zoom if necessary. During that meeting, we will talk in depth about your big day, your love story, and what you want from your ceremony - everything from the overall style, and feel, as well as how you want the ceremony to go. Whether it's traditional with a twist, something spirirtual, or a karaoke interlude, we can make it happen!
I will then go away and take everything I have learnt to write a tailor made, bespoke service for you. You get unlimited rewrites, so once you have the script you can edit, review and amend any of the details, until we have things perfect. I include a rehearsal if you wish, and will reach out and coordinate with any planners/photographers/videographers/av suppliers, prior to the big day to make sure we have everything in hand It is important we get the perfect photos, and reminders of your special day! On the day itself, I will be there beforehand - making sure everything is perfect for your big moment, and if this means helping the florists and the planners, I will pitch it to make the day perfect! Ceremony done and dusted, I will give you your ceremony copy and keepsake certificate and leave you to enjoy the rest of your special day together.

An incredible celebrant and person
We found Danni through Bark, after putting out an ad for a celebrant, and out of all of those who got in touch, after looking at her page, we were immediately interested as she seemed to fit our style and vibe perfectly. We were correct!
We had an initial video call with her to establish what we wanted and what she could deliver, and we found that we were immediately aligned on what we could make our ceremony into. We were also struck by just how personable and fun Danni was. She had a great energy, and put us at ease very quickly over any stresses we may have had about the ceremony.
Danni then came over to meet us in person, and we went through the story of our relationship with her, with her delving deeper into different anecdotes, and asking us further questions about our relationship and who we are as people. All of this information was provided over a 90 min or so period, and was then shaped into the ceremony she delivered, retelling our story in a really personal way. She created a first draft for us, which we had full editing permissions over, so whilst what she wrote was fantastic from the off, we had the option to tweak any small bits that we wanted to.
Danni’s thoughtful questions and genuine interest helped us shape a very meaningful ceremony for the two of us, and was something which many of our guests commented on; even the venue staff mentioned upon us collecting our decorations how meaningful and personal they found the ceremony to be.
We included in the ceremony a traditional Nichiren Buddhist San San Kudo, which Danni seamlessly built in to proceedings. Whilst she already had some knowledge of this, Danni did further research and expertly adapted what she knew already to include the nuances of the brides religion.
Danni also cared about the little details, taking us through where we should be standing, gave us tips for photographs, matched what she was wearing to our colour scheme, and co-ordinated expertly with our venue and photographer.
To say how good Danni is, is to say we haven’t even mentioned her delivery of the ceremony this far in. She spoke really well, engaged our congregation, directed both of us, as well as our musician, best man, and flower girl.
Danni really cares, which was evident throughout, shown on the morning of where she had the idea to include a game of rock paper scissors at the altar to see who would give their vows first, as both of us share a love of games. Little touches like this just added to what was already a really special and personal ceremony. She even bought us a board game as a wedding gift afterwards, which was entirely unexpected and very thoughtful.
Danni is not simply just a wonderful celebrant, but first and foremost and lovely person who became an integral part of our wedding day, and we always looked forward to any calls or meetings we had with her. We cannot recommend her enough as the ceremony she produced was everything we wanted and more.
As soon as we spoke with Danni we knew she was the celebrant for us. She understood us and what we wanted from our big day.
Danni had great communication throughout the process and on the day made our ceremony fun, personal and very special.
Thank you so much x
We’d spent weeks searching for the perfect celebrant and from the very first call with Danni we knew she was the one. So down to earth and full of energy Danni really made our wedding day special and very very us. She really went above and beyond and no job was too much. She was a huge support throughout the whole stressful wedding planning process and became one of our closest friends. She was our hype girl, she helped write our vows, she was our dog treat holder, she told our story perfectly, she was our positive person when it looked like we were gonna be rained out and she tore up the dance floor and got the party started! We are so so happy we chose Danni and now have a friend for life. She loves what she does and it really really shows!
Amazing from start to finish
Danni listened and guided us individually. Our vows complimented each other, without having read each others beforehand. There were many tears and laughs during both our vows in the ceremony and it was so much more special knowing each word was so personal to us.
Fantastic and heartwarming
