Hi, I'm Louise

I’m Louise Gather, and I create kick-ass gatherings: wedding ceremonies with funk and flair! Whatever your style and whatever your story, we will work together to create a joyous, unforgettable ceremony which truly reflects you and your relationship, and sets the tone for an incredible wedding day. I am based in Derby, but willing to travel!

What's my ceremony style?

I have tons of ideas, bags of enthusiasm, and top-notch training under my belt. No ‘delete as applicable’ / ‘insert name here’ scripts, just personal, meaningful kick-ass ceremonies. Want to write your own vows? I have a vow workshop for that. Need ideas for readings? I am an ex English teacher so I’ll find you the perfect suggestions. Fancy a ceremony involving booze? Want to involve your pets? Getting married on a hot air balloon? Or in the middle of the forest? I am HERE FOR IT. Hit me up and let’s get planning.

If, on booking, you (and your photographer, if applicable) agree to allow use of photos and a case study from your wedding for promotional purposes on my website and social media, you will receive £50 back after your big day. Put it towards an amazing homeymoon!

Why choose Louise?

After originally training to be an independent celebrant in 2019, Covid meant that only one of my 2020 weddings went ahead – waaahhhh! Undeterred, I used it as an opportunity to level-up! I have almost completed training with Humanists UK, which means that I will soon be a fully fledged officially accredited Humanist celebrant. The quality of the training has been phenomenal and has made me even more excited about writing and delivering awesome ceremonies in 2021 and beyond.

Weddings

We have all sat through wedding ceremonies which have bored us to tears with their dry delivery and ‘insert name here’ approach. I firmly believe that your ceremony should set the tone for your day and give you and your guests a fun, personalised experience that you will all remember forever! No templates – the content and structure is totally up to you. And you don’t need to include things just because they are tradition. If you don’t want to exchange rings, sack it off. Exchange bracelets instead. Or tattoos. Whatever your vision, I’ll make it happen.

My wedding package includes: introduction and planning meetings (ideally in person, but also online depending on location and circumstances); advice and support for inclusion of readings, rituals, and music, if required; vow writing workshop; writing your fully personalised script and making any necessary amendments and revisions; and obviously delivering an awesome ceremony on the big day! I also help with greeting guests and wedding party logistics in the hour before the ceremony. I only ever do one wedding per day, so you will have my full attention and I can be flexible with timings. If your venue or guest numbers mean microphones are required, I have a PA system to use, and after your wedding you will receive a beautiful presentation copy of your ceremony script.

Why choose Louise for your wedding?

With me you will get a totally bespoke kick-ass wedding ceremony. I absolutely love what I do and I will bring all of the joy, fun and enthusiasm to your big day! We will work together closely to plan something to reflect you as a couple and your relationship. Why not include some symbolic rituals which link to your favourite things? So if you are gin connoisseurs, let’s blend some gin in your ceremony! If you are rock climbers, let’s do a hand-fasting using some climbing ropes. The world is your oyster, and I will find the perfect ideas and inspiration for you.

Renewal of Vows

I am SO excited about writing and conducting vow renewal ceremonies, because there is so much more story to tell! We can reflect on what you have achieved together and how your lives have changed in the years since your wedding. You can re-affirm your original vows and make some new ones for the future. And your renewal ceremony can be as big or as intimate as you like. Maybe you want it ‘elopement style’ just the two of you; maybe you would like to involve your children; maybe you want it to be even bigger and better than your original day. Whatever you want, let’s make it happen!

For a vow renewal, you get exactly the same effort and input as you would for a wedding ceremony! The package includes: introduction and planning meetings (ideally in person, but also online depending on location and circumstances); advice and support for inclusion of readings, rituals, and music, if required; vow writing workshop; writing your fully personalised script and making any necessary amendments and revisions; and obviously delivering an awesome ceremony on the big day! I also help with greeting guests and wedding party logistics in the hour before the ceremony. I only ever do one wedding per day, so you will have my full attention and I can be flexible with timings.

Louise put together our ceremony and it was beautiful, she was responsive to our questions & gave us lots of ideas for vows & readings. Organising a wedding during a pandemic isn’t easy but Louise was very flexible & more than happy to work with us when things changed. She really made our special day very special and we can’t thank her enough.
