From being a teacher, I have learnt to always have a contingency plan and I can definitely think on my feet.
Associate of Independent Celebrants
Hi, I'm Lisa
WARM, VIBRANT & EXCITING are the words that my couples and families have described me. I was totally blown away by this.
Yes, I am the FUN LOVING celebrant that goes that extra mile to create extraordinary ceremonies, whether they are for the happiest times in your life or the saddest. I am very friendly, relaxed and out-going. There won’t be any stress on your day, not while I’m around. I really enjoy having a good belly laugh. Basically, I love being with and meeting people and I have to say that this role is the best fun I have ever hard. If you want to have a fantastic time on your wedding day then I’m the one for you. I’ll do whatever you want me to do within reason :) and I will be with you all the way.
What's my ceremony style?
Whatever the ceremony, I always inject an amount of FUN. This is what we need in our lives, especially this year. I celebrate people’s stories with humour that is based around the personalities of my couples and families. I LOVE love and I LOVE fun. I am relaxed and open and a bit naughty and cheeky. The name Fun Loving Ceremonies really does reflect me and my personality. There are no words that can describe the joyous feeling that I get after writing a script and conducting the ceremony, but you can see it all over my face. Actions definitely speak louder than words.
I can’t guarantee you the weather on the day, but I assure you that the ceremony will be one that you will never forget

At the end of the ceremony, when the couple kissed each other, they both turned, hugged and kissed me!!!!

Why choose Lisa?
To be honest I am me. What you see is what you get. I love to have fun and I also love LOVE. Celebrations are such a key part of our lives, whatever they may be. The feeling that you have when you are getting married, declaring your love again, welcoming a new addition to the family or even a celebration of someones life, should be as personable, warm, filled with joy and above all bring people together..
And if anything has taught us in 2020, these times are more important now than ever.
What do I offer?
It is really important to me that I have a great connection with my couples. I love chatting and getting to know you and what makes you tick. It gives me the opportunity to dig deep into what is really important to you both, not just for your special day but for you as individuals who are coming together to celebrate your love for one another.
I’ve been told that whilst I’m bubbly and fun-loving, I also put people at ease. This helps us collectively as the more open you are with me, the better I can serve you. It’s not just about the ceremony, it’s about the two of you.
Having different rituals incorporated such as a sand ceremony, hand-fasting, unity candle and a water ceremony can really bring the two families together and they will feel like they have contributed another important part to your day
Feel free to have religious connotations included in your ceremony. Some couples have a favourite hymn or prayer that they remember from when they were younger. It could be a family favourite that you want to share at this special time.

Why choose Lisa for your wedding?
Why choose me as your celebrant?
There are so many ways that I as a wedding celebrant can go above and beyond to make your day not only perfect, but true to you both. It’s something that I am finding more and more couples striving for. That little element that means so much to you and that you will remember always.
With the limitless choices, of location, time and theme you will be sure to have a day that entertains your guests, celebrates your unity and expresses your personalities. I love that I have the privilege of being there beside you, everystep of the way.
Thank you for thinking of me to conduct the naming ceremony for your new and precious addition to your family. I really look forward to working with you to create a beautiful ceremony that is full of fun and love. A lot of modern families these days choose a Naming ceremony instead of a traditional christening as you really do have total freedom in what you would like to be included. Involving siblings is precious. I asked A 4-year-old how she felt about her sister and her reply was ‘I love her more than anything’ even mummy and daddy’. Out of the mouths of babes as the saying goes
There are some wonderful meaningful rituals that can be included in your ceremony especially if there are other children present.
It is such a beautiful ceremony and little ones love to be involved. You can have a lighting of a personalised candle or maybe blow some bubbles (this is one of my favourite ones). A keepsake box is also a lovely thought. You can ask your guests to write messages of love and prosperity. They will then be placed in a special box for your little one to then open at a later date, such as when turning a teenager or more importantly if they would like to read and reflect on what was written at that time. I can’t guarantee you the weather on the day, but I assure you that the ceremony will be one that you will never forget. Photo by KATENICOLA PHOTOGRAPHY
Why choose Lisa for your naming ceremony?
The ceremony will be personal, beautifully crafted and delivered to a very high standard. It can include favourite poems, readings, quotes and songs that reflect your beliefs and values. Most importantly, your ceremony can be held absolutely anywhere that you want. A woodland area, on a beach, your garden, or any venue that is meaningful to you and your family. I am always prepared for any eventuality and I really do think outside the box when it comes to writing beautiful words for your family ceremony.
Renewal of Vows
Hello you youngsters, well young at heart anyway
Renewing your vows is such a beautiful commitment and celebration of your love for each other.
It doesn’t matter how long you have been married, 10, 20, 50 years or maybe even 5, something has triggered the wonderful feeling of the both of you wanting to re-declare your love and your friendship.
We do… again!
You may want to repeat your original vows or you may want to have something totally new written. This is also a perfect time to include children, or other family members and friends in the ceremony. There are so many amazing rituals that you can include which they can be included in. They will truly feel that they have been a special part of your day and be proud of the fact that you are all making new memories together.
Why choose Lisa for your renewal of vows?
As a celebrant I will tailor a personalised ceremony that will resonate your personalities and include a lot of fun and love. I will be in regular contact with you right up until the day of the ceremony. From your advice I will ensure that the script will be absolutely perfect and rest assured, I will conduct the ceremony in a fun and loving way that you will never forget. It is a time to reflect on why you decided to say ‘I do’ in the beginning.
Why choose Lisa for your funeral?
I have so much empathy for my families. I totally understand Grief, I have experienced it myself and I don’t think you really know the stresses of planning a funeral for a loved one unless you have had experience of it. Celebrating the life of a loved one is so personal, it has to be meaningful to you as a family and also having a ceremony that is worthy of your loved ones memory. This is where I come in.. I have written many personalised, individual and beautiful ceremonies, conducted in an elegant and respectful manner with elements of humour and of course LOVE

Perfect send off
What can I say , from the minute I spoke with Lisa on the phone I felt her kindness and understanding. We lost my brother suddenly and far too soon . He was much loved by many family and friends and had a wicked sense of humour. Lisa captured him perfectly and helped us put together the perfect send off with love laughter and tears . A true celebration of his life and he would have enjoyed every minute . Thank you Lisa for your support , love and understanding that made such a terrible time a little easier . I hope we shall remain in touch and cannot thank you enough .
We so appreciate how wonderful you helped make our day, so hopefully what I’ve written reflects that!

Lisa was incredible. She was so warming, and made us feel really comfortable and at ease in the lead up to our big day. On the day, we had so many comments and mentions about how beautiful and personal the ceremony was, which was a complete contrast to the registrar we’d had for the legal bit! We can’t recommend Lisa enough, she really will bring your ceremony to life and give you something to remember forever :) Thanks again Lisa!
I would 100% recommend Lisa, if you are thinking of booking her don’t hesitate.
Megan Davies recommends Fun Loving Ceremonies-Lisa Kendell.
Lisa recently took our wedding ceremony, July 2021. It was a last minute booking 2 weeks before but we honestly couldn’t have asked for anyone better to do it.
Lisa is so friendly, bubbly, kind and chatty she puts you at ease straight away, she is so easy to talk to and get along with. Her communication is brilliant, she was never long getting back to us. We met a few times and had some zoom meetings where Lisa got to know us.
The words she wrote for the service were beautiful, she took on board what we liked/disliked and created the perfect ceremony for us. We couldn’t have asked for anything better for our wedding and we are so glad Lisa was a part of it. All our family and friends commented on how lovely and friendly Lisa was on the day (some actually thought she was related to us we were that relaxed with her). I would 100% recommend Lisa, if you are thinking of booking her don’t hesitate.
