We're so glad we chose Theresa as the celebrant for our wedding ceremony! She's friendly, warm-hearted and professional. She helped us through writing our ceremony and vows, providing us with expert guidance and access to superb templates and prompts when we inevitably got stuck making decisions. On the big day, she delivered an absolutely beautiful ceremony for us -- there was not a dry eye in the house! Thank you Theresa for helping us to celebrate our marriage with our friends and family!Jim O'BrienJuly 15, 2024
We could not have asked for a better celebrant. Theresa made our ceremony so special. She was very helpful, professional, and friendly both during the planning process and on our wedding day. Thank you Theresa!Anna & KaustavMarch 24, 2024
Theresa made our day very special. From the moment we booked her she kept in touch throughout. We had some bad news before the wedding and Theresa was so understanding and empathetic. On the day she was brilliant she made sure everything ran smoothly and respected all our wishes. Thank you xEmma LidgardMarch 19, 2024
Theresa was exceptionally professional, informative and thorough from the very start of the booking process with us. In our first meeting she explained all the options available to us and asked us questions to help us decide which details to include that would best reflect us as a couple. During the ceremony Theresa brought great warmth, friendliness and humour which made our special day all the more personable and memorable. Thank you from the new Mr & Mrs Marchant xxxSally MarchantJanuary 3, 2024
We are so glad we found love celebrant. Theresa was fantastic throughout the process of organising our wedding ceremony. On the day Theresa was so comforting and helped calm our nerves. She also provided a lot of resources to help with writing personal vows which was super helpful.her script is beautiful too. Theresa was comforting and gave us both confidence before and during the ceremony which went perfectly. Thank you for being an amazing celebrantPippa SimpsonJanuary 3, 2024
andrew valentineSeptember 24, 2023
Theresa was amazing! In constant communication from our first conversation up until the ceremony! Sent everything we needed or may have overlooked and made sure we was all ok with scrips before finalising! Truly a god send and a lovely woman! Would 100% recommend using Theresa as your celebrant you will not be disappointed. Many thanks again! Love mr & mrs lunn xxCaitlin CromwellAugust 22, 2023
Theresa was very friendly and patient with Robbie and I whilst we were working out what we wanted to include in our ceremony. Our guest list also included many Dutch guests and Theresa was able to ensure that they could all understand the ceremony and created a warm and relaxed atmosphere for our wedding day. This despite a number of our guests arriving late due to transport issues! Thank you again Theresa!Samantha TinsdeallMay 18, 2023
Theresa delivered a beautiful ceremony at our UK reception following our overseas wedding. Our requirements were fairly specific - we didn’t want to recreate our wedding day - rather celebrate the occasion with our loved ones who couldn’t be with us in Italy. Theresa gave us some lovely ideas to make our guests feel part of the occasion and really listened to what we we wanted to make sure our ceremony was unique to us. It was everything we wanted it to be and more! Thank you Theresa!Emma KennedyNovember 25, 2022
Theresa was so friendly and helpful right from our first call. She respected our requests for the ceremony script and did a fantastic job on the day. Would definitely recommend!Bryony FosterNovember 4, 2022
Theresa was so lovely, warm and friendly. She brought such a personal touch to our wedding day and lots of guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was. She made the planning process very easy and helped us to curate our personal ceremony which was our main aim. It was a pleasure to have Theresa as our celebrant!Holly CairnsOctober 27, 2022
Excellent service from Theresa. Thanks!Liam PeacockOctober 25, 2022
What can I say?! If you are looking for a personalised service and ceremony, look no further than Theresa! From the first contract to the actual ceremony, nothing is too much trouble. Theresa was able to fully understand us both as a couple from our first meeting and helped us create a ceremony that was personal to us and in short, was perfect! It far exceeded our expectations! Theresa made excellent suggestions, particularly things that we hadn’t even thought about. Theresa was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple and what made us ‘tick’. Thank you again Theresa. XxxMatt CassidySeptember 20, 2022
We found Theresa really easy to work with as our celebrant. From the first call, a year before our wedding, through to the ceremony itself, Theresa was a good listener, gave good advice and was completely flexible to our suggestions. After our first call, Theresa supplied us with loads of example of ceremony wordings and then left us to it. Closer to the time she politely chased us and we went back with our first draft. She then put a lot of effort in to review it, add suggestions and hold a call to discuss. I'm pretty sure she would have been more than fine to write it all herself too, if we had asked. We weren't traditional at all in some aspects of our ceremony and Theresa was really accommodating of this too, even on the day when we realised we had forgotten to mention certain aspects Theresa just rolled with it. She also was on the ball with some things that between me and the venue we had forgotten on the morning (eg the table we had asked for for a "fake signing"). And, perhaps most importantly, during the ceremony Theresa spoke with clarity, warmth and happiness. We would definitely recommend her as a celebrant.Joe MitchellSeptember 2, 2022
This was the most amazing, beautiful and unique ceremony! Theresa has put so much time and effort into our day, several phonecalls and planning, even things to help plan our day. She is so kind and guided us on the day through bad nerves. It was emotion inducing and really brought our family into the importance of our day. “The best wedding ceremony they have seen” from the wedding photographer and videographer.Bex JaneAugust 3, 2022
Thank you Theresa for making our day so special and exactly as we wanted it to be. So relaxed and about us, you made it just what we wanted and the whole process from day 1 was so easy and never any trouble for you. Thanks ❤Charlotte PeelJuly 21, 2022
Theresa was absolutely fantastic throughout the planning and on our big day. The ceremony was beautiful and she gave us fantastic guidance on PA equipment we would need for our outdoor ceremony to allow our guests to hear. I wouldn't have thought about it so we are really grateful as it turned out to be slightly windy on the day! The ceremony was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you.Sarah BrownJuly 5, 2022
Theresa was lovely, very helpful and patient. I couldn't recommend love Celebrant enough. Thank you.Ryan SylvesterJuly 4, 2022
We used Theresa for our ceremony and from first point of contact until after our ceremony she was fantastic. We wanted a really short ceremony because we aren't huge fans of standing in front of lots of people. Everything we wanted and needed was covered and our day was perfect. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a celebrant, kind caring and understanding person.Jade BremnerJune 20, 2022
Sophie YatesJune 20, 2022
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 TateSeptember 2, 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.LauraAugust 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 was the celebrant for my daughter's naming ceremony, and from start to finish she was warm and friendly and knows how to bring together a very special ceremony. She is very organised and thorough and worked hard to make our ceremony reflect our family's uniqueness and pitch the tone just right. She made the whole process so easy and stress free. I would recommend Theresa in a heartbeat. Thank you Theresa for a memorable and special event!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

“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! ``

    LOVE CELEBRANT FAQS

    Why choose a celebrant?

    To be legally valid, a UK marriage ceremony must be performed by an authorised person (for example, a registrar, a vicar or a priest) and be witnessed by two people. In order to do this it means couples must choose between:

    • an approved religious ceremony
    • a registry office ‘Civil’ ceremony
    • or a registrar who will attend the wedding at a licensed venue

    The ceremony is a beautiful sense of occasion and is truly the most important part of the wedding day, and while couples can make the reception as individual as they please, they can’t quite do that for the ceremony itself – there are rules to follow, time restraints and even pre-written vows which are simply repeated by you as a couple.

    Restrictions also extend to readings, music, vows and sometimes even photographs and the number of guests who are able to join you on your special day. For example, a Civil Ceremony conducted at a Registry Office or other location by a Registrar will not include anything that’s related to religion, such as hymns (even as quotes), Bible references, or even songs that indirectly refer to religion. In some cases, churches will not allow photos to be taken during the ceremony, or they restrict the photographer’s access.

    By utilising the services of a professional Civil Wedding Celebrant, which is where I come in, it gives you the choice and flexibility to create a bespoke ceremony reflecting your wishes, values and beliefs without restrictions.

    Partnership & Wedding Celebrations

    It’s a big day and probably the most important day of your lives and you’ll want to make sure that you get the ceremony absolutely right. I can help you and we’ll work together to ensure we are creating a unique event that will be memorable for years to come for all the right reasons.

    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, the important thing is that it is your ceremony and reflects you and your beliefs and ideas

    Weddings led by a Civil Wedding Celebrant are becoming increasingly popular because they exercise choice. A ceremony conducted by a professional celebrant provides you with a blank canvas in which to design your own ceremony at a location and time of your choosing. But there are also other reasons why using a professional Celebrant are the perfect choice for you…

    • You want flexibility to have your wedding during the evening, at sunset, at home in the garden or unlicensed venue of your choice. These are all very personal and romantic.
    • You want a very personal and bespoke ceremony that may, or not, include some religious content (music and religious references). You may wish to incorporate cultural elements into your ceremony which isn’t allowed at a licensed venue. I have a wealth of resources and ideas to guide you through your options.
    • Your partner is religious but you are not. By having a celebrant led wedding we can create a ceremony to reflect the wishes of you both as a couple in keeping with each individual’s own religious, spiritual or cultural beliefs.
    • It’s not your first wedding and you would like to declare your love and commitment amongst loved ones but without the legal bit.
    • You like the idea of a traditional ceremony but your guest list is increasing by the day and you cannot find a suitable licenced venue within your budget.

    You may wish to use symbolic gestures or weave your love story into your ceremony.  I have lots of ideas to help you creature your unique ceremony either by way of:

    • Traditional Hand fasting
    • Jumping the Broom
    • Unity Candle
    • Unity Sand Ceremony
    • Love Letters & Wine Box

    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 £100. 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?

    I have a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of people and strive to provide the highest level of service. As a former Celebrant Registrar, I have successfully guided many couples through their big day and fully understand that it’s the little things, the attention to detail and personal touch that makes the whole experience so very memorable, not only for you as a couple but for all your guests making your ceremony an experience to treasure in the years ahead. After all, we cannot go back and do it again and we won’t need to. Like you, I am unique and we will work together to create the ceremony of your dreams.

    It is with great pride and honour that I am able to unite couples together in a way that best suits them – a way which is fitting, meaningful and memorable. Afterwards, each couple will receive a beautifully presented keepsake of the ceremony – a treasured reminder of your commitment to one another. If in the years ahead you would like to renew your own personal vows you will be able to refer to your special day once more.

    ​When you are ready please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you.
