Hi, I'm Louise
My greatest pleasure is working with my clients to put together a service that leaves them feeling they have the very best of memories to look back on for years to come. It’s all about, beauty, style and where appropriate a touch of humour. My aim is to listen to what my couples want in order to deliver the very best service and value for money possible. I love travelling and I am open to combining my holidays with offers of work anywhere at all in the world to keep costs down for my couples.
What's my ceremony style?
I provide a professional and warm service. Past clients often comment on the clarity of my delivery which makes for a greater sense of connection with my audiences.. Having come from a performing background I love to take on a role and write a script in a style to suit to venue or theme. My favourite being a pirate, mediaeval lady and most recently a Peaky Blinder.
I use my skills to take people on a journey from tears of joy, laughter and truly magical intimate moments and always work hard to ensure everyone feels at ease around me. I pride myself in really listening, paying attention to the little things and reflecting the personalities of my clients and their ideas and always go the extra mile with extra little touches!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Choosing Louise as our celebrant was an easy decision! From the beginning she just felt like the perfect fit. She was very kind and attentive to what type of energy wanted from our ceremony. She had a very in-depth questionnaire so that she could tailor the ceremony specifically to us and she even wrote us a poem from the answers in our story/our venue location/situation. She was never pushy with ideas and really felt like family after it was all over with! I can’t even say enough good things about her!!! She made our ceremony absolutely AMAZING!!!
Perfect (despite the rain)
Louise appealed to us straight away with her humorous response to our search. she helped us to achieve a fun and light hearted vow renewal ceremony that included our children. her ideas are great and help to focus thoughts on how you want the service to go and what to include.
her delivery was pitch perfect and she even dressed brightly to match our colour scheme. this helped brighten the skies on an overcast afternoon and we managed to finish before the heavens opened.
Wonderful women great personality and going above and beyond to make everything run smoothly absolutely would recommend to friends and family.
Everyone loved the ceremony saying its the best one they have been too.
