True Blue Ceremonies

Reviews (10) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

Bespoke, tailored and unique wedding ceremonies, written just for you and held anywhere! With 13 years professional experience of delivering celebratory ceremonies of all kinds, hundreds of happy couples and family clients, I'd love to see if we are a good fit for each other and really hope that I can help personalise your special day.

During my time as a Registrar of Marriages from 2005 to 2012, I realised that for some couples, the choice of having either a religious or a civil ceremony just wasn't enough. I now specialise in the creation and provision of totally personalised weddings and vow renewals along with baby naming days too. I set up True Blue Ceremonies in 2013 especially to cater for couples who want more choice in where they marry, how they marry, the words that are said and that they may say to one another as part of a wedding ceremony.

I work with couples who might simply want to hold their wedding in a place that is unlicensed, for instance, their family home or fully outdoors in a garden, forest, festival site or woodland. I also have clients who plan to marry at a venue that does have a civil licence but who want their wedding day to start with a personalised ceremony that reflects their beliefs and personalities. A large proportion of my customers are part or fully British couples who live and work abroad and have already quietly married to satisfy visa and residency requirements, but wish to come home and have their English wedding in front of friends and family. And finally I also attract international clients who want a destination wedding or elopement here in the UK.

CEREMONY STYLE

I love the feeling of freedom that the great outdoors brings, and many of the ceremonies I perform are completely outside, held in woodland, beautiful gardens, under ancient trees, in marquees or tipis. Stately homes, manor houses, medieval castles and old beamed barns are also favourite places of mine to conduct the personalised ceremonies I create.

I'm happy to dress up to suit your theme, in fact I insist on it! I'll fit into whatever colour scheme you've chosen but I've also performed weddings in full medieval dress, on stage at a live music venue and even by a rollercoaster at an amusement park - I'd love to hear all about your wedding plans!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony you gave us. Everyone commented on how special it was, even my overly religious Nan! Amazing! We absolutely loved having you involved in every way and can't thank you enough! We will remember that day forever. We are still buzzing from it all! Going through all the photos from the setup, and looking at the ones our friends have sent us. Such an amazing day! Thank you so much, we will recommend you to everyone! And hopefully you do Baby Naming Services too (for a couple of years time!) and we can book you again. Or maybe we will just have to renew our vows every year!

We wanted to say a huge big thank you for our ceremony - we thoroughly enjoyed it! We know our guests did too as we had so many compliments about it afterwards. Everyone loved the personalisation, and all the emotion that went into it. So we really can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us - from your patience with all the changes right through to the expert way the ceremony was carried out and delivered by you on the day. Everything came together so well, it really was just perfect and we couldn’t be happier.
We’re so glad you were our celebrant!

A massive thank you for being our Celebrant for our wedding day. The service was absolutely perfect and we wouldn't change a thing. It was so special, it was like having an old friend or family member marry us. We even had guests asking us afterwards how we knew you. You summed up our story beautifully and you spoke so naturally. You really helped both of us feel calm and relaxed on the day, which is no small feat with 100 people watching us! We're so happy we chose you to be part of our day. Thank you again!

We thought we would get in touch to say thank you so much for helping us create the most amazing wedding ceremony! It really was the highlight of the day, it felt so special and personalised to us, everyone absolutely loved it and there wasn't a dry eye in the building! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process and thank you for making yourself available to Ramy our officiant who really appreciated your advice and guidance. He did a fantastic job on the day! We would 100% recommend you to anyone else!

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for conducting such a lovely wedding service for us. You interpreted our wishes perfectly and it was a beautiful wedding. You paced it really well and no-one felt rushed, there was time to listen to the words, promises, vows and readings and really reflect on what was being said. You also brought humour in where it was appropriate and sorted all the music out effortlessly. We both really enjoyed our day. We are quirky, funny and unconventional and that is exactly what you delivered for us!

We cannot begin to thank you enough for making our "second special day" even more special than we had hoped. You quickly made us feel comfortable and confident in your abilities. Our friends and family provided several compliments about our ceremony and stated how lovely they thought it was. It was such a pleasure to work with you over the past several months. We can't believe the big day has come and gone so quickly! We were so happy with the ceremony. It was fun, sincere, unique, and truly represented our love for one another. Thank you for your constant professionalism, organisation, and all of your hard work and dedication to ensuring our day was unforgettable.

Katie was our wonderful celebrant back in July and she gave us a wedding more perfect that we could have dreamed of! Her bespoke ceremony was emotional, in places funny, moving and beyond all - captured us perfectly. Even our more "traditional" family and guests were blown away (and now think everyone should have a celebrant wedding!).
We cannot thank you, Katie, enough for all your help and advice with drafting the ceremony script and helping us with our vows, you have such a flair for how to say just the right thing! Also, thank you for your friendship, you were such a calming and reassuring presence leading up to the wedding that it made the whole process that much less daunting.
We cannot recommend Katie highly enough!
