Hi, I'm Gwyneth

I guess you’re reading this because you’re planning a ceremony, if it’s your wedding, baby naming or vow renewal then congratulations. If you’re planning a funeral, then my condolences. But you’re also here because you want something different – and you’ve come to the right place. Whatever ceremony you’re planning, I’ll listen to what you want, help you make decisions and work with you to create a wonderful and memorable day.
I have conducted weddings in a farm field, a family garden, a theatre and a woodland as well as in more traditional settings. I’ve helped loving couples welcome their babies into the family and those who want to relive their wedding day with a vow renewal. I also have lots of experience of helping bereaved families say a comforting and memorable goodbye to their loved one. So, whatever ceremony you want – get in touch and let’s start talking.

What's my ceremony style?

All of us are unique and so every ceremony that I create is unique, because it tells your story – a story that is exclusive to you. So tell me your story and I’ll weave that into your ceremony, if you want to involve those you love in your ceremony we can do that too. If you love traditional, that’s what you’ll get but if you want something different then we’ll get creative.
And this works just as well with funeral services as with other ceremonies – tell me the life story of your loved one and we’ll create a service that is unique and memorable, a lovely way to say goodbye.
I love hearing those life stories and can’t wait for you to get in touch and tell me yours.

Weddings

Your wedding day should be the best day of your life – whatever that means to you. I’ve conducted weddings in a family garden, in a woodland, in a theatre, in a café as well as in more traditional settings. And each wedding has been different, exclusively created for the couple getting wed. So I can create a ceremony exclusively for you that will tell your story, tell who you are and what you’re like. It will be your perfect day and it will be a ceremony you, your family and friends will remember – for all the right reasons!

Why choose Gwyneth for your wedding?

On your wedding day you may be feeling nervous and excited or calm and zen-like, one thing you don’t want to feel, though, is worried. As your celebrant, it’s my role to make sure that we’ve created a ceremony you love and look forward to but I’ll also make sure that we’ve gone through the details so everyone knows what to expect and has nothing to worry about – and if things don’t go exactly as planned then I’ll deal with that too. So, your day will have your perfect blend of love, humour and fun – just like you.

Naming Ceremonies

Don’t tell anyone but baby namings are my favourite ceremony. They are full of such joy and hope and promise, and they can – like babies – be unpredictable, but that’s part of the fun. And what better way of welcoming your new baby into your family than with a naming ceremony. You might want it to be just you or you might want to involve your family and friends; you might want to include a symbolic ceremony, such as planting a tree or creating a memory book.
But naming ceremonies are not just for babies – maybe you are changing your child’s name as part of a blended family, maybe you’ve had a name change to recognise your new gender or to make a fresh start. Whatever the reason, I can help you create a joyful, memorable and exclusive ceremony.

Why choose Gwyneth for your naming ceremony?

As with any ceremony, with your naming ceremony you want a celebrant who will listen to what you want, help you make choices and decisions and work with you to create a ceremony that is joyful, meaningful and exclusive to you. I love naming ceremonies, they mark new beginnings, and I’d love to work with you to create your ceremony so I look forward to hearing from you.

Renewal of Vows

What could be more romantic than a vow renewal ceremony? Whether it’s been one year, 5 years or 55 years, love that endures is well-worth celebrating. Maybe you want a vow renewal to tell the world how much in love you still are, maybe you want the ceremony you didn’t get the first time round, maybe you’re celebrating getting through life together – it doesn’t matter why you want a vow renewal, the fact that you do makes my heart sing. Your vow renewal ceremony can be a mirror of your wedding ceremony or it can be something different, perhaps this time round there are children who you want to involve or perhaps you’ve been through some tough times and you want to acknowledge them. Whatever your reason, I would love to help you create a vow renewal ceremony that celebrates all that you have, all that you are, and that makes people laugh, cry, and certainly remember your day.

Why choose Gwyneth for your renewal of vows?

A vow renewal can be just as nerve-wrecking as a wedding, so on the day you might feel nervous and excited or calm and zen-like, one thing you don’t want to feel, though, is worried.

Funerals

Planning a funeral can be difficult – there are so many decisions to be made in such a short space of time, and when you are feeling emotional. I can’t help with everything but I can help with the funeral service, if you need it I can offer advice and guidance, suggest music and readings. If you know what you want, I can help you put it all together so that the service gives comfort and is a fitting final farewell.

Why choose Gwyneth for your funeral?

A funeral service is your last opportunity to say farewell to someone you loved and it’s got to be right, so you need a celebrant you trust and who you feel comfortable with. I have lots of experience of listening to people, helping them find their memories, helping them to create a final, loving last gift. last memory. It would be a privilege to work with you, to listen to you and to help you plan a funeral service, for yourself or for someone you loved.

Renewal Of Vows | 09/18/2019 | Sheffield

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!!!

Wedding | 05/04/2019 | Foxholes Farm, Sheffield

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!

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!
