We are so glad we chose Love Celebrant to be part of our day. From our 1st date in 2020 to our 3rd date in April 2022 theresa was very accommodating and understanding. She kept in contact the whole way through. Having a Celebrant like theresa on the day made it feel more personal to us as a couple and family.Katie HudsonMay 15, 2022
I honestly cannot put into works how Teresa made our wedding complete. From the initial communication to the very end of the ceremony she was perfect. Can’t recommend her enough and will Most definitely use her for any family celebration. Thank you from both of us for making our day special xxRachel WindrossApril 11, 2022
My Husband and I managed to have a small wedding ceremony during lockdown but we wanted to reschedule our big wedding celebration when all the covid restrictions were lifted. We wanted our vow renewal to be so much more personal telling our story and that's why we decided to book Theresa at the Love Celebrant. She is a very lovely person who provides a professional and personal service. We loved every minute of it and we couldn't thank her enough. I would certainly recommend her to anyone! For those couples who would like to have an input into the personalisation of your wedding ceremony, Theresa is your go to Celebrant! XEllis CrabtreeApril 10, 2022
Theresa was very helpful every step of the way. With lots of sample vows and readings for us to design exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go. We had to postpone a couple of times due to covid but she always kept in touch and made sure we were happy with our final script. She was very professional and greeted us before the ceremony. She was very calm and kept everything on track so I had nothing to worry about. A few of my wedding guests commented on how great she was leading the ceremony, absolutely no complaints I would 100% recommend Love Celebrant to anyone else.Georgina CollingsMarch 28, 2022
We reached out to Theresa having being legally married in May and our wedding day pushed back to December. Theresa was recommended to us by one of the ladies at the venue where we were getting married. Theresa was extremely friendly, helpful and thorough. Theresa kept in touch via email and Zoom calls to ensure that everything was perfect for our big day despite such a substantial gap between May and December. On the day Theresa was prompt, helpful and helped put me at ease (despite a delay from the bridal party). The service was well delivered and well received, many guests commenting on the flow of the service. Theresa made us feel very comfortable throughout and was extremely efficient. From start to finish Theresa was fully dedicated to ensure that we had the ceremony that we wanted. Thank you Theresa. Lydia and DanDan HancockDecember 31, 2021
Theresa from Love Celebrant was lovely to work with! She was very organised throughout the whole process and kept us on top of the wedding ceremony scripts so that we could finish finalising them early on and not have to worry about them as our planning got busier. She had wonderful script ideas and examples to provide us and great suggestions during our compilation. The days before the ceremony, she reminded us of a few things to do or have available such as an unlit candle (and a match or lighter) which we lit in memory of some loved ones. On the day, she was very warm and kind. She also inserted some lighthearted humour into the ceremony when a few funny things happened amongst our family and friends and ourselves. Everyone was smiling, happy crying, or laughing during our ceremony which is what we wanted. Thanks, Theresa and Love Celebrant!Laura YarbroughDecember 8, 2021
We had to organise a wedding at short notice and Theresa was absolutely brilliant. She provided us with lots of information and advice for the day and hosted our perfect wedding ceremony.Samir PatelDecember 5, 2021
From first contacting Theresa about our vow renewal she was extremely friendly and easy to talk to and yet professional. She was very considerate of our decisions and needs especially as we were already 95% complete with our plans. She stayed in constant contact via email so we knew exactly what was happening. At the venue Theresa made the ceremony fun and memorable. Would heartily recommend her to anyone.Dave ClarkeSeptember 23, 2021
From our first contact with Theresa, I felt instantly assured that she was professional but more importantly to us relaxed and friendly, she felt like someone i had know for years. We met befor the pandemic as our wedding should of been May 2020 and we had a great chat and she followed up by sending loads of useful examples of scripts and readings to give us inspiration. We wanted to make the words suit our relationshipand personalities. With Theresa's help we were able to personalise the script and it was really special. I couldn't recommend enough!Aimee LongSeptember 2, 2021
We would like to say a big thank you for all you help with our vows and script throughout our planning the lovely zoo calls we held together and for delivering such a beautiful service to celebrate our marriage, it truly was a memory that will last forever and thank you for being a part of our day love Charlotte & Michael Quinncharlotte hickeyAugust 22, 2021
When we first started planning our wedding, we struggled to get a registrar that could do our ceremony at a reasonable time on the date we wanted. Love Celebrants and Theresa was recommended through a family friend and I was so relieved we had found an alternative. Theresa came to meet us and went through the ceremony in detail, sharing lots of fantastic and unique ideas. We decided on a rope tying ceremony as it links with my parters job. Unfortunately, we had to postpone but Theresa was easy to communicate with and luckily was still available on our new date. We really loved that the ceremony was unique and personal to us and we could choose from a range of readings. Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting anything different! Thank you so much!Nicola RuddickAugust 11, 2021
Theresa is a fantastic celebrant. She's warm, friendly, and very well organised! We had a number of guests comment on how lovely she seemed, and how well the ceremony was performed. She even read a surprise reading for us, which was really sweet, as we got to hear it for the first time together with our family and friends. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Theresa to anyone looking for a celebrant.Laura YeomanAugust 4, 2021
From start to finish, Theresa has been an absolute star. Despite us having to postpone the wedding twice due to Covid restrictions, Theresa was always fully supportive and always in communication with us. She added a sense of fun and humour to our celebration and we really enjoyed our ceremony - thank you!Meg DonovanJuly 28, 2021
Due to circumstances, we couldn’t get officially married at our venue as planned, so we had to do the legal bit and the celebration separately. As disappointing as it was to have to change our plans, the good thing about having a humanist celebrant such as Theresa doing the second ceremony was that we could do and say anything we wanted. Theresa was very accommodating: providing lots of example scripts to give us inspiration, and happily accepting our script and amends. We wanted to include some very specific elements, including prayers, a remembrance candle and bilingual readings, and nothing was too much trouble. All in all we had a lovely day and it was just what we wanted. Thank You! Marc and Daniela June 2021Daniela Parra GodoyJune 30, 2021
I contacted Theresa when our plans for our Wedding day had to change due to Covid to see if she could hold our new ceremony for us. We both decided to hold the ceremony in our back garden and as strange as that sounds, Theresa was on board from the beginning and was just as excited for it as us which put us both at ease instantly. She was absolutely fantastic giving us ideas, help with the vows, always at the other end of the phone if we had any last minute questions or queries and honestly nothing was too much trouble! Our day would have not been the same without her and we thank her very much 😊 would highly recommend her to anyone!! XxJoanna FoleyJune 23, 2021
I contacted love celebrant to conduct a wedding ceremony after the pandemic changed our marriage plans. Theresa was able to fit me in and was super helpful from my first contact, she made me feel at ease, calmed me down and reassured me everything would be ok. Theresa was super helpful with our reading giving advice and lots of different options. On the day I barley got to speak to her due to restrictions in place but she carried out the service perfectly and was very well presented. Would highly recommend and use again in the future if needed. thank you!Nicole LowtherJanuary 24, 2021
Thank you for a fantastic ceremony! enjoyed and loved by our family and friends alike. such a fresh and personal approach. Thank youCraig HallNovember 7, 2019
Theresa was our celebrant for our wedding at The Gathering in Edale. She provided a very friendly and relaxed environment (which is exactly what we wanted) whilst being completely professional and organised. All our guests commented on what a lovely and relaxed ceremony it was (involving laughter, and tears!). The day felt very special and personal, even more so when we discovered I went to primary school with her son! Would definitely recommend Love Celebrant.Nicola BarnettOctober 4, 2019
Theresa was all you could ask for and more in a celebrant. She was thorough, organized, and made us feel really at ease. Theresa's warmth is really special; it felt as though we were being married by an old friend. We really loved being able to adapt our ceremony to exactly what we wanted - another factor that made the ceremony thoroughly enjoyable. We highly recommend!Bethany TamayoSeptember 14, 2019
We cannot recommend Love Celebrant enough! My husband and I only decided on a celebrant after we couldn't get a registrar for our big day! We are so pleased we did! Maxine was brilliant, she listened to everything we told her and created a ceremony that was US! We laughed, we cried and most of all we have memories for years to come. So many of our guests said the ceremony was their favourite part of the day. Thank-you so much Love Celebrant Chloe and Ray xxChloe BellSeptember 7, 2019
Maxine was the celebrant for our ceremony at Edale Gathering and everything was perfect - she helped us with drafting the script and sent some useful examples over as well. She was very flexible about the location and made sure that the guests got up to the ceremony site on time, as well as helping us to feel calm. Thanks!Kate YorkeSeptember 6, 2019
Theresa and Max were wonderful in helping us organising our ceremony from when they came to visit us initially, to guiding us through the options for our vows and readings to Theresa attending on the day. Theresa made sure everyone knew what they were doing, calmed nerves and spoke beautifully. Everyone commented on how lovely the ceremony was, really personal and included lots of our guests. Thank you for your support and guidance Love Celebrants, we couldn't have done it without you! Charlotte & Julio xxxJulio IsobaAugust 10, 2019
Theresa was an incredible help to both me and my husband! She replied to all our emails and text messages promptly, she guided us through the ceremony step by step, and she made sure all of our requests were accommodated under the package that we've chosen. Even though she sent us the final script weeks before the wedding (because we needed to translate it to French and Polish for our guests), it was still incredible when she performed them on our wedding day. Some of our family and friends were teary eyed because of how beautiful the ceremony was. The wedding vows were really beautiful! Theresa also arrived early on our wedding day and checked up on both me and my husband to make sure that we were both okay and ready for the ceremony. She made us feel relaxed especially during the ceremony when my husband and I were exchanging our vows. Thank you for making our wedding something that our family and friends will never forget!Grace Escosia-JasiewiczAugust 7, 2019
Maxine made our wedding ceremony such a unique, special and personalised experience. We loved every moment and had so many positive comments from wedding guests. Maxine was so friendly and professional throughout the process, and always happy to jump on a call with us to put our minds at ease in the run up to the big day.Olivia WilliamsAugust 7, 2019
Theresa was absolutely brilliant for our wedding. She directed the occasion perfectly. Her experience shone through as she guided us through the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for any more. Her delivery was perfect and many of the guests complimented us on how excellent she was. Theresa was very professional in how she planned a bespoke ceremony for us that catered to our needs. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.Joanne crossJuly 22, 2019
Theresa was an absolute pleasure to have perform our ceremony. As soon as we met her we knew we were in good hands! Not only did she do an amazing job during the ceremony, she also acted as a co-ordinator on the morning to make sure the wedding party knew exactly what to do. We'd definitely recommend Love Celebrant for your special day, thanks again!Emma HardyJune 12, 2019
Max was the celebrant for our wedding in May, and she was ace! She was lovely and really brought the script to life on the day. She was totally at ease, and made sure our ceremony felt as warm and welcoming as possible. We couldn't be happier!Rob SummersJune 9, 2019
Theresa was our celebrant at our wedding on the 14th April 2019. She was amazing and so caring , I felt like she was a friend I had known for years. She stepped in at the last minute when we had been let down. We can never thank her enough, our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it, it was beautiful. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Theresa xxKim ClowesApril 25, 2019
Love Celebrant helped us write our perfect wedding vows and made it a fun and easy process. On the day Theresa and Max were fabulous and a pleasure to have marrying us.Flora MewiesOctober 18, 2018
Theresa and Max are so warm and friendly. Theresa was so helpful throughout the organising of my daughter's naming ceremony and the ceremony itself was delivered beautifully. Guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how touched they were by what was said. I'd recommend Max and Theresa anytime and I am confident that they would make any ceremony special and meaningful. Thank you so much to you both.Katy YoungOctober 16, 2018
Thoroughly recommend Theresa for helping shape and conducting a personal and touching ceremony. She is open minded, thoughtful and took time to get to know us as a couple and the end result was fantastic. Thank you so much.SallySeptember 9, 2018
Wow well where do I start....Theresa has been a gem! She delivered our wedding ceremony Aug 2017 and it was absolutely perfect, she helped us out on the day organising guests, her husband also helped with our timings walking down the aisle and she spent so much time leading up to the wedding making sure our script was perfect, adding personal touches and helping us where she could. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a stress free and friendly experience to use love celebrant! Thank you so much!Justin BallOctober 27, 2017
Maxine has been a friend from the very first moment we contacted her. There were points during the lead-up to our wedding where we felt a little lost but were always put on the right path and were able to let out a collective sigh of relief after a quick chat with Maxine. Through her immaculate professionalism and warm personality she made a daunting and often overwhelming endeavour incredibly easy. Maxine arrived early on the big day and it was invaluable to have someone you could trust to look to, to offer advice and guidance even up to the point of the ceremony. Her bedside manner is exactly what you’d hope for and she looked impeccable, which always helps when you’ve spent a lot on the photographer! After the ceremony was over she said her goodbyes without a fuss and was out of the way allowing proceedings to flow naturally. We wouldn’t have been able to have the wedding we wanted without her and are both so grateful for everything she has done for us.Samantha MoranSeptember 20, 2017
Maxine and Theresa were absolutely fabulous from start to finish. They were incredibly warm and friendly which helped make the ceremony more special knowing we had two fabulous people helping us to celebrate the day! I was dreading the ceremony bit - stood in front of everyone but they put me at ease and helped make it as relaxed as possible! Like the previous reviewer our guests also commented on not only how lovely the ceremony was but also how lovely celebrants were which is an achievement to make such an impression in such a short space of time! They helped us put a personal touch to it in a way that made sense and flowed! We're so pleased we found them!Dipa & DavidAugust 16, 2017
Maxine was just brilliant from the day we met her! She was professional, friendly, informative, flexible and just good fun! We wanted a relaxed day with lots of laughs and smiles and that's exactly what we got, many of our wedding guests commented on how unique and special our ceremony was, we loved it, it was perfect. I would recommend Maxine to anyone.Caroline NardoneNovember 14, 2016

“Thank you so so much, the ceremony was our absolute favourite part of the day.”

Caroline and John

`` I can’t recommend Love Celebrant highly enough. Together we created personal and meaningful wedding vows which made our ceremony so special. Theresa ensured that this part of the day was relaxed, fun and reflected us as a couple, having taken the time to get to know us in the run up to the wedding. We loved working with you and wish we could do it all over again! ``

Flora and Ben

``Love Celebrant conducted our daughters Naming Day ceremony and it was absolutely perfect.
The ceremony captured the emotions and feelings we wanted for the day and we were really touched by their words. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Love Celebrant and will definitely ask them to conduct any future ceremonies we may have.``

    LOVE CELEBRANT FAQS

    I want to do something different for my wedding, can you help?

    I love different and the unusual!  Let me help you to make your dream become a reality.

    What is an independent celebrant and what are the advantages of choosing an independent celebrant?

    A Celebrant is an individual who officiates at a ceremony or rite, be that a wedding, vow renewal or child naming. As an Independent Celebrant I am not affiliated with a particular religion or organisation so we work entirely for, and with you to create your perfect ceremony.

    I write a ceremony script that is unique to you reflecting you and your personal beliefs. Ceremonies are wonderful occasions; they bring all the people we love together. With Love Celebrant the process of creating your celebration will be as uplifting and enjoyable as the day itself.

    You are free to have the celebration that you would like, exactly as you want it to be. You won’t be constrained by rules, locations or times. Your ceremony will be uniquely personal, exciting and fun.  You don’t need approval on music or readings and you build a relationship with the person who will perform your ceremony.

    What can I include in my ceremony?

    Anything you like! You can take inspiration from anywhere you choose. Religious, humanist, non-religious, whacky, themed, traditional, understated.

    The most important thing is that your ceremony reflects you and your beliefs and ideas. Your ceremony can be anything you want it to be. How exciting is that!

    Is the ceremony legally binding?

    At this point, no. No matter where or how you plan to marry, you must also register your wedding with your local council. This involves a very brief ceremony costing from as little as £50. Many couples do this prior to their Celebrant wedding ceremony. It has never been necessary to have your wedding ceremony and the registration of your marriage at the same time.

    It is commonplace in many parts of the world to have the family ceremony and the registration on different days. In the UK we are relative latecomers to this idea. Let me reassure you that a ceremony revolution is underway allowing you to truly personalise your life affirming moments.

    It is not necessary to register child naming and vow renewal ceremonies with the local council. These are non-legal ceremonies in the same way as a church Christening.

    Are you a qualified celebrant?

    Yes, I trained as a celebrant with Leeds City Council and have years of experience performing ceremonies in a busy registrars office.

    Which areas do you work in?

    I am happy to travel wherever is required to officiate at your ceremony.

    What is Included in your fee?

    Of course this varies depending on the ceremony option you choose.

    My fees include meeting in person or via Face-Time or Skype.

    Ceremony script.

    Officiating on the day of your ceremony. This includes liaising with venues and other professionals involved in the ceremony on the day. I will never have to rush off to perform another ceremony; I only perform your ceremony on your chosen date.

    A ceremony rehearsal; this can take place at the location before the ceremony or at a location or venue of your choosing prior to the ceremony by arrangement.

    A copy of the ceremony script for you to keep.

    Public liability insurance.

    NB if you wish to make minor additions or amendments to the Classic Ceremony Script this may may be possible for an additional £50 fee.  Please contact me for details.

    What is not Included in your fee?

    Travel expenses outside of West Yorkshire.

    An additional 20% charge for Bank Holiday Bookings.

    Accommodation costs if an overnight stay is required due to distance.
