Firstly, we need to get to know each other – I offer a no obligation initial meeting. This can be in person, over the phone or video call.

I will write a draft ceremony, be available for as many follow up calls, help and guidance as you need. Then I will deliver you ceremony and make the biggest day of your lives one you will cherish and remember forever!

Wedding | 01/29/2022 | Barnsley

Nikki had been recommended to us by a friend who had recently used her services and she did not disappoint. She made herself available for frequent consultations and ensured everything was just right on the day. She was word perfect, amusing, presentable and very caring about us. Everyone at the service was talking about how much they enjoyed it and how great she was and I am sure she will get lots of bookings when our friends finally tie the knot! She helped make our day just the perfect day we so wanted after several cancellations and we simply cannot thank her enough for making our day so very special. Absolutely highly recommend to everybody – you will not be disappointed.
