EXPERIENCE

Award winning independent celebrant, delivering bespoke wedding ceremonies at fabulous venues all over the South West of France!.

All ceremonies are carefully crafted to reflect your unique personalities and individuality. Many couples ask for an informal, warm ceremony which incorporates their sense of humour. They often request a meaningful ceremony, which truly reflects their personalities and the way they feel about each other.

Your ceremony can contain some religious content or none, and will be created uniquely around your wishes, beliefs and desires. I have many ideas and suggestions to share with you, and my first-hand knowledge of being a bride in France, means that I understand the issues around organising a wedding abroad.

All my couples (and their guests) have been overwhelmingly happy with the service I have provided, but don't just take my word for it.... Nothing speaks louder than real feedback from real clients. Please scroll through the reviews at the bottom of the page to read just some of the outstanding feedback I've recieved and then get in touch to find out how I can help you achieve the perfect ceremony for your big day.

Sorry for being a tad late on some of our 'homework', but we got it done in the end. I now realise why you wanted so much detail from us as the words you gave were very personal, and it sounded like you were a close friend. It was magical and wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone. Thanks again, love Paul and Amara Gray''

Best wishes for the future from Mr & Mrs Beaumont-Fosseyeux''

''Thank you so much to Lisa for our recent wedding in France!

Lisa wrote such a perfect bespoke ceremony for us that really suited our relationship style. In just a short time, she’d managed to get to know us & had everyone laughing & crying happy tears!

Unfortunately we decided to pick the one day of the whole French summer where it decided to rain! But Lisa was still upbeat & positive about the whole ceremony & persuaded us not to let it put a ‘dampener’ on our day!

I’m so glad we decided to do the hand fasting as Lisa suggested as this was my favourite part & we now have a lovely wall hanging to remember this by!

I’ve enjoyed reading our ceremony again & I’m sure it’ll bring as many smiles to us if we read it again in 5 years time when we open our wine box! Thank you again Lisa

From the point of booking, you were just amazing. Pushing ideas towards us, getting to know us over a series of Skype calls, speaking with friends to get the material and putting it all together to create just the most personal service we could ever have imagined.

Your calmness on the day when the weather took a turn and we had to consider our options along with the way you liaised with myself and Mel was just awesome.

We knew we were in good hands right from the start and for anybody looking for a hugely personal service the lovely Lisa comes with the very highest possible recommendation. You will not be disappointed! So many people have said it was the most personal service that they had ever attended.''

Now that we have recovered from the celebrations at our wedding and returned from our honeymoon, we wanted to drop you a note to express our gratitude to you for making our wedding day so special.
We were genuinely overjoyed with the service which was sincere, funny, emotional and above all thoroughly enjoyable. All our family and friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and whilst we made the event quite unique because of the venue, you were a huge part of the success story.
We both really liked how you took time to plan the service and helped us to run through the running order, timings and the involvement of our guests. The rehearsal the night before proved to be hugely beneficial , as on the day everything was perfect!
Finally thank you for spending time with us before the wedding, you really managed to convey our story in a personal manner, everyone thought we had known each other much longer than we have!
Thanks again, we couldn't recommend you highly enough.

Lisa was absolutely amazing as our wedding celebrant. Her support and planning ahead of the ceremony was invaluable and really shone through on the day. Lisa took the time to get to know us, both as a couple and individually, to help create the perfect ceremony.
Lisa listened to our brief very carefully, and adapted the structure and style of the ceremony to suit our needs. She also made lots of great suggestions about how to make our ceremony individual and enjoyable for our guests.
So many of our guests have commented on how good both the ceremony and Lisa were. We cannot thank her enough!
We would not hesitate to recommend Lisa for any future event.

Georgie and Ben

Domaine de la Fauconnie | July 2019

Wow Wow Wow ❣️
What a pleasure it was working with Lisa!
From the start we knew that we didn’t want a religious ceremony but we didn’t quite know what other styles there was available. Lisa spoke us through the different styles, content and feel we could have but mainly that whatever we wanted she could make it happen. She really did deliver too! We knew it was going to be amazing but she really blew us away with how she delivered it and really understood the feel that we wanted it. Romantic but also light hearted and fun. Every word said was about us and our quirks as a couple which we both loved.
Our guests had never been to a ceremony like ours so it was amazing to hear Lisa overwhelmed with compliments when she joined us for champagne after the ceremony.
She genuinely wants to know you as a couple to be able to deliver the best ceremony for you both. Her passion for her job radiates in her ceremonies. An absolute pleasure to work with. It was 100% my favourite part of the wedding day ❤️
Thankyou again Lisa

What can I say about Lisa? She gave us the most beautiful ceremony that was so personal and full of love and sincerity there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, our ceremony was written with so much love, care and attention and Lisa spent so much time getting to know us both as a couple and as a family with our two boys, whom she included in the ceremony beautifully.
Thank you, for the many calls leading up to the wedding, you became a friend to me and I’ll miss our little chats! You are the absolute best at what you do so keep delivering these beautiful weddings lovely lady xxx

THANK YOU!!

Rich and Camille

Thaims, Charente-Maritime, France | June 2019

From our first meeting with Lisa in the UK, we knew we were in great hands when it came to planning a bespoke and personal vow renewal ceremony in France. Lisa took a lot of time to get to know us as a couple and our 10-year history and delivered an amazing ceremony that was incredibly personal and touching, but also fun and light at the same time. There was both laughter, and tears, and it was full of surprises - especially when Lisa had asked several of our friends to stand up and read out a blessing during the ceremony, which was especially poignant. We also had great fun with the time capsule wine box, which was a great way to involve those who couldn't make it in person. We had so many compliments on the ceremony and on Lisa's expert and confident handling of the day (even when the father of the bride took a telephone call part way through the ceremony!!) Lisa absolutely made the day more amazing than we could've envisaged and we want to say a huge THANK YOU to her for making it such a wonderful experience!
Rich & Camille x


What Lisa says...

Aww, your lovely words have just brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye! You really have been a dream couple to work with and I’m beyond delighted that you were so happy with your ceremony. Keep in touch and I hope that one day our paths will cross again xx

Lisa - you were ON.IT!

Martin and Jenny

Chateau la Durantie | August 2018

Lisa, from the word go you were ON.IT (I’m glad one of us was!) We had no idea what to expect as we’d only attended the traditional types of service in the UK and so the flexibility you offered was a real eye opener. I’m pretty sure if I had said I wanted to ride down the aisle on an elephant you would have taken it completely in your stride ;-)

You really took the time to get to know us as a couple and that came through in abundance throughout our ceremony; it was lighthearted, fun and completely personal to us. Two months later, people are still talking about it. I’m not sure about anyone else but I don’t think you get that kind of feedback after a traditional service!

For anyone wanting something really special and a little different then you really needn’t look any further than this lovely lady.

Thank you so much again Lisa and keep up the great work!!! Lots of love, Mr and Mrs B Xxx

An amazing lady!

All of our guests commented on how they felt part of the ceremony and we loved the humour she added – it really set the tone for the rest of the weekend.

Millie Kanani

Chateau de Redon | September 2018

As a feminist (I mean who isn’t? It’s 2018), I struggled a little with what marriage was for my partner and I. We settled on its public decree of love. Lisa was so dedicated to curating a ceremony that echoed this for us. She spent a huge amount of time carefully considering us, going backward and forward about what she’d written specifically for us and for this we have immense gratitude! We had a yogic hand holding ceremony, three readings and a whole lotta love. It was simply perfect and I’ve had so so many people comment to me that it was a perfect representation of Chris and I. We will always cherish that it was Lisa that supported us on this journey! I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Our favourite part of the day!

Scott Elliot

Castelnau des Fieumarcon | September 2018

''Wow!'' That’s what all of our guests said about our wedding ceremony performed by Lisa. When we first contacted Lisa right through to the wedding day, we felt at ease, she took total control of the ceremony which saved us great hassle and stress.
We wanted a quirky/fun and personal ceremony, nothing traditional and certainly nothing religious. Although understandably different to the normal ceremony Lisa exceeded our expectations on this, our guests cried and laughed and then cried of laughter and then laughed some more!
We only Skyped Lisa twice and just from those chats she picked out personal and emotional bits that were added to our ceremony, she even spoke some German for us (Nina and her family are German)
Many of our guests asked how long we have known Lisa for as it was so personal and so “us”. Lisa really captured the love for our dog too (the ring bearer on our big day)
As bride and groom we both asked each other what our favourite part of the day was and both agreed it was the ceremony (historically the boring bit). We cannot recommend Lisa enough!
Thanks again Lisa, we couldn’t have chosen a better celebrant.

Lisa is BRILLIANT!

Frances Corbett - Littlewing Photography

Castelnau des Fieumarcon | September 2018

Lisa is EXACTLY the person a nervous bride and groom need to steer them through their wedding ceremony. From when she came to talk to the bride during the preparations, Lisa was calm yet efficient. It was the same case when she headed to speak to the groom and his groomsmen. She is extremely professional yet warm and friendly. I could tell that she had gone to great lengths to find out about the couple. The ceremony was handled perfectly. There were snippets of humour to keep things light and everything ran like clockwork. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lisa.

We were lucky enough to have been recommended Lisa as our celebrant and we can safely say it was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding! We know we weren't the easiest couple to work with and needed a lot of pushing to get everything done but Lisa was amazing all the way through.

We were her first Bilingual ceremony ever and we can't thank her enough for how brilliant she was, our mixture of French and English guest were very impressed. She captured our relationship perfectly and we loved that most of the ceremony was a surprise to us, it was romantic, funny and very emotional. It was perfect !

From the bottom of our hearts thank you Lisa! We wouldn't have changed a thing!

On top of that you managed a groom that was often uncooperative and had an attack of the giggles every time you suggested he read anything remotely 'mushy'!!

You spent the time getting to know us and you were able to understand that our marriage was about joining our families and our children together, and you portrayed this so well throughout.

Light-hearted, funny, sincere, romantic and truly special, we can not thank you enough!

Love Mr & Mrs Askew!

Dear Lisa,
We would both like to thank you for all of your help in putting the service together for us. We received many compliments on the service, particularity for its blend of personal, humorous and touching sentiments. These positive comments were from both the English and French speaking guests so your efforts in the French sections were much appreciated! Your suggestions for the readings, vows and what marriage means text were very comprehensive, meaning we could select those that were appropriate for us. These suggestions, along with your calm organisation on the day resulted in a very smooth and enjoyable service, that really did suit us perfectly. We have no hesitation in recommending you to put together a truly unique service for a wedding.
With love, Stuart and Juliette x

With kind regards and much love

I photographed a wedding with Lisa as celebrant at Chateau La Gauterie in August 2018. I just wanted to thank you for the amazing wedding ceremony you organised. Not only as a professional but as a real natural and close human being. I loved your style, the committed with the couple story and by my side, your sense of beauty for the couple’s legacy with the photography. Thank you for being so easy to work with and relaxed, hope our paths cross again soon. Keep doing great!

Thank you, you're a star!

Lisa,
Thank you so much for being our Celebrant at Chateau La Durantie a few weeks ago. You were absolutely fantastic to work with and both Alexis and I as well as our guests loved your service. Importantly for Alexis and I, you managed to create a wonderful service from scratch, that suited our personalities and tastes, all from just a handful of interactions. That is such a gift. You were incredibly flexible as you adapted to our changing preferences all the way up to the days just before the wedding. We can't thank you enough for your part in making our wedding a day we will never forget. To anyone who is looking for a Celebrant, I can't recommend Lisa highly enough. Thank you so much!!!
Will & Alexis.

Can't thank you enough!

Lisa,
Thank you so much for all of the work you put in to make our day so special. We felt as though you had known us for years and your remarks fit us exactly. We loved that you were so naturally able to add in our special touches. Our guests said that this was one of their favourite services as you were able to capture the essence of who we are as a couple, communicating by those special looks rather than always words.
We also appreciate the recommendation of a rehearsal which gave us the chance to get all those concerns out of the way leading to a seamless wedding day. Your patience was endless especially while dealing with a frazzled bride!
We are so glad that you were recommended to us and we can’t thank you enough!!

Exactly wheat we wanted x

Dear Lisa,
From the first email we sent to ‘You may now kiss the bride’ we were overwhelmed with the service you offered to us.
We specifically requested a very personal and romantic ceremony which involved our guests as much as possible. You captured our wishes perfectly and were always happy to offer your guidance and advice whenever we asked for it.
Our guests continue to tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and that they have never experienced such a beautiful ceremony – our cheeks ached from all the smiles and laughter and there was not a dry eye in the house!
Thank you again for helping to make our day so perfect.
Gem, Ash and Aurora xx

Thank you Lisa!

Lisa was perfect on our wedding day. She made it very personal and one I will never forget.
I can’t thank her enough, not only did she make us cry with happiness but she is also brilliant at settling your nerves.
Thank you Lisa

Lisa is amazing!

Lisa was the celebrant at my sisters wedding and she was amazing. The ceremony was natural, beautiful and captured their relationship perfectly. Would highly recommend Lisa's services. The ceremony is the most important part of a wedding and she got it spot on. Thank you!

Thank you soooo much!

Lisa, thank you so much for being our celebrant in France last month. You created the perfect ceremony script for us, which was made even better by the fact that it was basically kept a secret from us until the actual ceremony! There was so much laughter and happy tears, in fact I don't think I've ever seen so many male guests wiping their eyes at a wedding before!! It was so personal to us and it felt like it was being delivered by a long term family friend. Thanks for all of your help and suggestions and making the effort to travel the night before for the rehearsal. It was definitely worth doing. We would recommend you to anyone and we are SO glad you were recommended to us. You are great at what you do! Lots of love x

Lisa is one of those people who you meet and feel you've known for years. She has a light and energy about her that's a joy to be around.

I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding she officiated back in May, and she was the perfect blend of professional and personable.

I've worked with a lot of officiants in the past, and Lisa stands in a league of her own.
Crossing my fingers we get to work together again in the future! XX

A wonderful ceremony

Laura Roxburgh

Some kind words from wedding guest, Laura…

‘’Lisa played a large part in creating the most romantic wedding I have ever attended!
She really managed the flow of the ceremony, balancing a little humour, a little reflection on how important the day is, and some wonderful tender moments.
Not a dry eye in the room!’’

A huge thank you!

A huge thank you for being our Celebrant in Bordeaux just a few weeks ago.
It truly was the most memorable day and the ceremony was absolutely perfect. It was exactly what we wanted and was so personal and romantic. We had so many people come to us with positive comments and many of them saying it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to.
We would also like to say thank you for spending the time getting to know us and guiding us through the process. It can be daunting and you put both of us at ease throughout every stage. I have to say that your advice on having a rehearsal was absolutely spot on as well, and I am so glad that we covered the finer details off before the big day.
I could not recommend you highly enough and we are so pleased that you were such a big part of our special day.
Love Danny and Marie xx

Can't thank you enough!

Marie Hill

Chateau la Gauterie | June 2018

‘’We have just returned from our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. We still have such wonderful memories from our time at the Chateau and are still receiving lots of great comments about the service. We are so happy with how it went and can honestly say it was exactly what we wanted and we could not have wished for anything else.

Thanks once again and I am sure you will be fully booked for years to come after the positive word of mouth you will get from your ceremonies.

Love Marie and Danny xx’’
