Gwyneth was our celebrant for our 10th anniversary vow renewal ceremony. The day will be one we treasure for always as Gwyneth took the trouble to get to know us and our family and made it such a personal event, adding heartwarming touches such as lighting a candle for missing loved ones and including our daughter in the hand fastening ceremony. We loved every second and cannot thank Gwyneth enough!!!
Thanks both, it was lovely to meet you both and to be part of your special day - do keep in touch x

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for us before and during the day. I was completely reassured that you had everything in hand and it was really helpful to receive your emails beforehand. It was also really good to meet on the Friday at the venue and discuss how the ceremony would flow. I was really struggling to concentrate with feelings of panic but it did put my mind at rest a little and was invaluable on the day, to just know how it would flow.
It was great to meet with you and discuss what we wanted and we think you captured that perfectly in the ceremony. It was just so us. Being able to include T as well meant a lot to us, we loved that the candle was personalised and everyone commented how nice it was (we would love to know where you got it from?). We are so happy to have a copy of it, and of the vows and are so grateful you provided that for us. The ceremony for us was the most important part of the day and we are so glad we had the privilege of having you do it for us. It was just perfect!
Thank you, it was such a great day, despite the wind blowing! It was a pleasure to be part of it all and I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon x

Gwyneth is a fantastic wedding celebrant! After speaking briefly on the phone, Gwyneth came to meet us at our home to find out about us and our family and how we pictured our ceremony. A lot of the details that we talked about she then thoughtfully included in our ceremony which made it very personal and special to us. Gwyneth guided us and gave us ideas when we expressed that we would like to include our little boy in the ceremony and also gave examples of personal vows which was something we really wanted to do. We also wanted to include a sand ceremony, so Gwyneth provided lots of information about it and cleverly fit it into our ceremony and we had our little boy join in with that too. Gwyneth’s experience in dealing with logistics of the day guided us from our first meeting and she was instrumental in helping us get organised on the day. She made sure everyone was comfortable with their part in the ceremony and even came to see us at the venue the day before the wedding to help make sure everything was in place and going to plan, which really put our nerves at ease. She is a fun and engaging storyteller and created a lovely atmosphere. She made all of our guests feel welcomed and we received many comments from guests about how special and unique the ceremony was and what a good job Gwyneth had done. We felt we could truly relax knowing Gwyneth had every little detail covered, from where people were to stand and making sure the music was timed correctly. To making sure that the sand ceremony went without hitch and anticipating and planning for how our little boy might react to being involved in various parts of the ceremony. Gwyneth was a huge part of making our big day run smoothly and making it such a special day to remember forever. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
Thank you, it was lovely meeting you all and I'm so glad the weather stayed sunny for your fabulous day x

Dear Gwyneth, We wanted to say a HUGE thank you once again for making our wedding ceremony so special. It was our favourite part of the day and it wouldn’t have been the same without you. From the very beginning you were so friendly and really took the time to get to know us both as individuals and as a couple. You listened carefully to the stories of our lives together, explored our ideas and weaved these into a wonderfully personalised ceremony with so much attention to detail. From ring warming to handfasting, readings, songs and roses, you guided us through every step of the way and the result was amazing. It’s been so lovely to hear from friends and family how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how it was one of the best they’ve ever been a part of. You brought so much fun, laughter and energy to our day but your organised and calm approach meant that everything ran so smoothly and professionally. Thank you so much for the beautiful copies of the ceremony script and readings – we will treasure the folder always. All our love, Anna and Tom x
Thank you both for such kind words. I really enjoyed meeting you both and creating your wonderful ceremony, it was so full of joy. All the best to you both x
Sheffield | February 2019
It all went very well and there were so many comments from people about what a lovely service it was and that they hadn’t attended one more fitting. So thank you from us all to you. I couldn’t have hoped for a better goodbye to Dad. I was sure from the time we met that we were in good hands.
Barnsley | February 2019
Thanks Gwyneth, we were really pleased with how everything went yesterday, particularly the ceremony. Thanks again.
Sheffield | August 2018
The service could not have been better! I have seen a huge difference in A today she seems to be at peace and knows her Dad's funeral was a fitting tribute to him and just what he would have wanted. ... I assure you we made the right choice in the type of service and lucky to meet your good self, you were perfect for what A wanted and I know J would be looking down with a smile too. Your delivery of the service was excellent, a kind caring and understanding voice and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The cuppa was a master stroke a very unique part our tribute to J. (from Gwyneth - J liked his cuppa so we made a pot of tea in the chapel and we had a cup of tea as we conducted the service).
This was such an intimate and moving service, so heartfelt, it was a pleasure to be part of it.
Crawshawbooth | July 2018
We had a lovely day and everyone commented on how nice the service was. Hopefully in a few years we'll be in touch again for our next child's special day.
It was a joy to be at this service, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
Sheffield | June 2018
Myself and John just want to start off by saying a MASSIVE thank you for being such a big part in our special day. You performed our ceremony in such a beautiful way and we will remember it forever. We were so lucky to have two weddings both one in the USA and then one in the UK and it was so nice to have such an incredibly thoughtful blessing in front of all my Sheffield family and friends. So thank you again. We will 100% recommend you to any future friends or family getting married in Sheffield.
Yes we got the box from you, it was so lovely, we will be using it for our wedding book and framing the ribbons along with other souvenirs from the day. Thanks again for everything Gwyneth! You are a star! ❤
Thank you Chelsea, it was delightful to meet you both and I enjoyed your day too. Best wishes for your many adventures together in America.

Pontefract | May 2018
Thank you Gwyneth, everything was perfect and we received many comments about the lovely ceremony. Thank you again for making our day special.
It was lovely to meet you both and what a great venue you chose. I'm so pleased that you had a wonderful day. Best wishes
Sheffield | May 2018
Good morning Gwyneth,
I really don't know how to begin to thank you for everything you have done. When you are personally involved the day can become a bit of a blur so the copy service, which is beautifully presented, will help me to reflect and remember my mum. When we arrived at The Bulls Head everyone I spoke to told me it was the best service they had ever attended and that is all down to you the way you spoke and the flow of the service was everything I could have hoped for, you really are an amazing person and a credit to your profession. Once again my sincere thanks
Coniston Hall Hotel, Skipton | May 2018
We've only just come back down to earth from Saturday and we were both back into work on Tuesday!
We could not thank you enough for giving us the perfect ceremony! Every single person we speak to says it's the most emotional and the best ceremony they've been to. The bit with the registrar went well, it was over and done with in minutes. Although that was when we were 'legally married' our real ceremony was with you and it was amazing! Thank you so much!
Grenoside Crematorium | November 2017
Thank you so much for delivering the service for my mom and dad today. Everyone attending told me how much they enjoyed it and how beautiful and poignant it was. In fact several people found it so moving that they asked for your details afterwards.
From the start it has been so comforting to know that you were the person who would be delivering the service for us.
I am delighted with the copy of the tribute which you thoughtfully provided afterwards as well - just one example of the kindness, care and attention to detail that you have shown throughout.
The Holt Cafe, Sheffield | October 2017
Gemma and I just wanted to say thank you for the ceremony and all the help you put in to making it special and personal. It was a lovely day all round and think pretty much everything on the day went to plan and everybody said how lovely the ceremony was.
Thanks Dale, it was lovely meeting both of you and helping with your special day - and wonderful that the sun shone all day. Congratulations and best wishes to you both x
Sheffield | August 2017
Thank you so much for all your efforts in preparing and presenting the service today for mum.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy but we felt that we were in very capable hands from the moment we first met you. Everyone has said how well you put over the service which was well balanced and a great comfort to us all, thank you once again.
Sheffield | August 2017
Thank you so much for all the work you did in bringing my recollections to make this beautiful service – everyone has said how moving it was and how right it was for Mum. I am deeply grateful to you and to all concerned. It is a difficult time but kindness and consideration shown by all have eased that burden. I appreciate the presentation copy – I am sure this will be circulated.
Sheffield | July 2017
