Hi, I'm Nicola and Denise

The Guild of Cornish Celebrants is a partnership between Nicola and Denise. We set our business up in 2014 after a major re-organisation of the Registration Service in Cornwall, and we are delighted that we can now use our expertise to offer our couples all the flexibility of a Celebrant ceremony. Being a partnership enables us to offer more couples a quality ceremony with the reassurance that there is backup should it be needed! We have also taken the decision to affiliate other hand picked and quality assured celebrants to enable more couples to enjoy a celebrant led ceremony under the banner of the Cornish Celebrants.
We are thrilled that our excellence and expertise has been recognised by the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards as we have been awarded the Celebrants of the year award for 2018 & 2019, we are also members of the respected National Association of Wedding Professionals.

What's my ceremony style?

Our style is your style! We work with you to develop a ceremony which is yours. We are happy to include spiritual or religious prose or music and work with a faith leader. We also offer rituals such as handfasting, tying the knot, sand ceremony and ring blessings, which we will word according to your wishes. We have experience of leading ceremonies both outdoors – beaches, headlands and gardens are especially popular – or indoors – hotels, stately homes or rustic barns, the choice is yours.

Funerals

The Guild of Cornish Celebrants is a partnership between Nicola and Denise. We set our business up in 2014 after a major re-organisation of the Registration Service in Cornwall. Whilst very experienced at leading ceremonies we both recognised that we needed to enhance our skills in order to lead funerals and we enrolled in, and passed NVQ level 3 in Funeral Celebrancy with Civil Ceremonies Ltd in 2015. Since that time we have led funerals at Crematoria, Natural Burial Sites, scattering of ashes and memorials ceremonies, as well as more bespoke ceremonies which enabled families and friends to commemorate and celebrate the life of a loved one.

As professional civil funeral celebrants we will provide the help and support to create the most appropriate and meaningful ceremony for this final act of love and respect. The funeral service can include speeches, poems or songs (including spiritual or religious readings or hymns) tailored to the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and the family. The service can take place at a crematorium, burial site or other place of significance to the deceased and family. We offer a choice of services from a full tribute and eulogy to a simpler tribute or words at the scattering of your loved one’s ashes. Our aim is to provide the opportunity for the family and friends to say goodbye in the most meaningful way possible, this can include a memorial service at a later date.
We also offer a pre-planning service for you to contribute to your own tribute.

From £225.00

Why choose Nicola and Denise for your funeral?

Professional and friendly our focus is on you and what you want from the funeral. We will meet with you in person to gather information and ideas, contact other family members or friends for further contributions at your direction and then write and share the funeral service with you to check. We will arrive at least half an hour before the service is due to begin to check everything is in place, and to be a friendly face upon your arrival. We will lead the service with professional and emotional integrity, and afterwards we will remain until everyone has left.

Wedding | 10/20/2018 | Hotel Endsleigh

Nicola and Denise are some of the most fantastic humans I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with. I hired their services for my small and intimate wedding of just 10 people at Hotel Endsleigh, and Nicola performed a breathtaking ceremony for myself,my husband and the guests. Nicola was gently-spoken and soothing to listen to, which leant well to the eloquent script of our ceremony.Thank you Nicola and Denise for all of your collective help and for executing our ceremony so beautifully. We will never ever forget the laughter and the joy you brought us.

I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding ceremony so special and memorable. So many people said it was the nicest wedding they’d ever been to! It was lovely to be able to tailor it to suit our needs and tastes, so that the ceremony was truly a reflection of our personalities. It really was the most perfect day! Xx

Wedding | 08/03/2018 | The Orangery, Mount Edgcumbe House

Denise,We simply can’t thank you enough for performing such a beautiful wedding ceremony for us. It genuinely was the highlight of our day! Your calm and caring nature really put us at ease (and you can’t ask for more than that when wearing a Harris Tweed suit during a heatwave). So many of our guests commented on how personal and thoughtful the ceremony was. Some were even convinced that Sean and I had known you for years! That comment really is testament to the time you put into making sure you got to know the both of us to really well to make the ceremony as personal as possible. You became a friend to us during a truly horrendous time for my family in the months running up to the wedding and we can’t thank you enough for that. In light of everything that had happened you made last minute changes to our ceremony to ensure that everything remained respectful and appropriate. So thank you again Denise, and to Nicola for great moral support and crowd control during the day. We wish you both all the very best of luck and have no doubt that your business will continue to leap from strength to strength.Best wishes,Tom and Sean xxx
