EXPERIENCE

I am a full-service Civil Celebrant based in Liverpool, also serving Merseyside, Cheshire and South Hams Devon. I am very grateful and proud to have won 'The Wedding Industry's Best Newcomer 2019'.

I was born in Liverpool, a stone’s throw from the magnificent River Mersey. I have lived and worked in Liverpool for most of my life.

I have taught in both mainstream and Special Educational Needs schools for over 20 years. I have a naturally compassionate and warm personality.

I am a fully trained Member of the Association of Independent Celebrants and received training by Civil Ceremonies Ltd.

To find out more about me and the service I offer visit my website www.celebrantwendi.com or check me out on Facebook www.facebook.com/celebrantwendi/

CEREMONY STYLE

I conduct non-religious, secular and creative services including funeral, weddings and namings that reflect the beliefs, personality and lifestyle of you and your loved ones.

I pride myself on my highly customized and unique services. I’m here to make sure that each and every ceremony I’m involved with is inspiring, extraordinary, and unforgettable.

I work with you in a caring warm and sensitive way, to provide a service that is meaningful, personal, professional and memorable.

We have made a new friend

Ant and Kate

Bearded Theory Spring Gathering Festival | September 2018

My Partner Ant Howley and me Kate Cottam were married at Bearded Theory Spring Gathering Festival and Wendi conducted the beautiful ceremony. From our first meeting with Wendi in January, we were struck by her warmth, wicked sense of humour and her ability to banish our nerves in the lead up to the big day.

Wendi's attention to detail in making sure all of our vows and words were exactly what we wanted was amazing. She's also great fun, we had a band play at our wedding and Wendi joined in, picked up a ukelele and played for most of the set!

She also donned a cracking head piece which was perfect for the occasion. I feel we have made a new friend in Wendi, she is a joy to know.

Thankyou Wendi for adding a sprinkle of fairy dust on our magical day.

Beautiful person inside & out

Quite a lot of people passed comment on how nice you are so wanted you to know this.

As mentioned we have got a gift card for you as a way of thanks. Would you like it passing in at Cravens or if you’d like I can send it to you in the post?

From the moment we sat down with Wendi our whole experience was incredible. Wendi spent the time to get to know Harry & I, talking through our lives and time together. We didn’t have much of an idea what we wanted and Wendi created a masterpiece, throughout the ceremony Wendi was beautiful, so heartfelt and completely understood our vibe; everything we could have possibly imagined and so much more. Thank you for making the day truly magical.
