EXPERIENCE

I love to create one of a kind ceremonies for couples and families to mark poignant moments in their lives, whether that is to celebrate a wedding, renewing your vows, welcoming a new life with a naming ceremony or saying farewell with a funeral or memorial service.

I am open to any and all ideas that you may suggest and will incorporate your ideas when writing your personal ceremony. I never forget that it is your ceremony I am writing, knowing what works for you might not work for another couple and that's just how it should be. You're unique, and your relationship is unlike anyone else's and your wedding or renewal of vows ceremony should reflect this. Writing your ceremony is a collaborative process with regular reviews during the writing process.

When writing a baby naming I will take time to understand your hopes and dreams for your baby, what your family dynamics are and whether you want the supporting adults to be called God, Guide or even Odd Parents, do you want grandparents involved in the ceremony? Do you want readings and to use symbolic rituals such as water, bubbles, or candle lighting or anything else you suggest. I will then write your ceremony in collaboration with you to get it absolutely right.

Usually weddings, renewal of vows and baby naming's can be written over a period of time, but with funerals and memorial services these tend to have much shorter timescales, when you make contact with me we will arrange to meet at the earliest opportunity to work out the structure and content of the ceremony, taking into account music, hymns and readings that you have chosen to celebrate the life of your loved one. We only ever get one chance to say farewell and when you leave the ceremonial place it's important to me that you feel it was done well.

CEREMONY STYLE

I don't have a preference to what "type" of ceremony I offer.

I have been known to fully embrace themed weddings by dressing in medieval dress for example, I have officiated at ceremonies in the Avebury Stone circle incorporating pagan beliefs and rituals, and officiated ceremonies at the smartest hotels, in barns, fields, gardens and tepee's.

I have officiated at baby naming's in pubs and families own homes, and held funerals in cemetery chapels, crematorium chapels, hotels and natural burial meadows. There is absolutely no reason why a funeral service cannot be held in your own home followed by burial or cremation in the appropriate location.

Fantastic wedding by Teri

Sue and Giles Davis

Wick Bottom Barn, Marlborough | August 2018

Well Teri certainly made our ceremony what it was, emotional, happy, joyous and funny. We couldn't of pulled it off without your guidence and help. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Having 2 stepchildren now Teri really helped us to include them in the ceremony. The ideas you had and time spent getting to know us was just invaluable.
A fantastic day and we couldn't of done it all without your guidence and support in the morning. Thank you so much Teri, we will always be recommending you to friends and family. Thank you again.

Would Definitely Recommend!

James and Onita

Berwick Lodge Bristol | July 2018

Teri officiated at our wedding celebrations at Berwick Lodge in Bristol and we'd definitely recommend her - she was great! Teri was recommended to us by the venue and didn't disappoint! Teri made the trip over to Bristol to meet us and get to know us. From the very start Teri knew what type of ceremony we wanted and made it happen! She wrote a beautiful ceremony based on a really handy questionnaire she had sent to us. Teri was very willing to work with us to tweak parts of the draft ceremony, although she'd done such a good job there weren't many tweaks to make! She went out of her way to get the ribbons for our hand fastening ceremony and even volunteered to provide a speaker etc for the music as part of the ceremony. She kept us informed throughout, including a telephone call in the run up to the ceremony to confirm everything was on track. She really took the stress out everything - it all went so smoothly! We were so pleased with the ceremony and would definitely recommend Teri!

Thank you, Teri!

Oakley Hall, Hampshire | August 2016

It was just amazing!
Teri is more than a part of our wedding, she got to know us inside and out. She is a friendly face who is always there for us and was amazing throughout our whole wedding process. She wrote the ceremony is such a bespoke way and it meant a lot to us, and still does.
Thank you again, Teri x


What Teri says...

Hi Glyn

Lovely to hear from you, thank you so much for your lovely review. It was great getting to know you and Roseanna so well and writing your ceremony so that it reflected your hopes and dreams for the future. It seems hardly possible a year has gone by already.

Wishing you a long and happy marriage xx

Our day was incredibly special

Thank you for putting up with our tardiness and coaxing out of us what ended up a hugely magical and heartfelt moment. We are so glad we had you to guide us through it all.

With sincere gratitude

Teri was a joy to have in planning our wedding. I would consider her an asset to any bride to be. Teri often knew what I wanted before I did, although when.discussing ideas she was always happy to listen to our thoughts and adapt. The words used in.our ceremony reflected us as individuals and as a couple and couldn't have been better. Thank you for sharing in.our special day. There are no words to recommend highly enough. Thank you x Mr & Mrs Ingram

I can’t say enough about how pleased we were with Teri’s performance at our 20th anniversary. I will be honest, I was a little scared and hesitant with picking someone out the way we did. My husband and I live in Florida so all of our planning was done via email. We couldn’t meet with anyone face to face. That is a feat in itself. She was quick to respond, polite, informative, and very helpful. She did everything to make our day about us and her writing was perfect. We could not have asked for a more perfect experience. We highly recommend her. Thank you for making our day magical!!!

Our ceremony was so much fun and it was all thanks to your experience and expertise.

Thank you also for making such a fabulous ceremony for us at such short notice.

We also really appreciated the little touches that you added such as the deal or no deal logo on the back of our promises and the beer part was cool too.

It was so personal and it was just perfect!

Thank you so much

"Fantastic Job"

Frank

Dear Teri

Thank you for the fantastic job you did in creating and delivering such a touching tribute to Janis.

Your ideas enabled me to stay true to Janis’s wishes whilst allowing many of our family and dearest friends to be ‘virtually’ present. I love Janis so much and although I am in pain and sad that she is no longer at my side, your hard work and dedication eased my burden. I cannot thank you enough for that.

I am so glad I found you.
If there is ever anything I can do for you (a citation or testimonial or whatever) please have no hesitation in letting me know.

I wish you good health and happiness.

Thank you Teri.

Good Morning Teri,

Thankyou so much for conducting the ceremony for my late wife Linda on Monday, to say that you "got us" as a family would be an understatement and you captured our thoughts perfectly. It was a very personal & moving ceremony and the music ,family tribute, reading and poem all conveyed the deep love Linda and I had for each other and she had for life.

Thank you once again for making what was a very difficult occasion a very fitting tribute and wonderful send off for Linda.

Kind Regards
Nick

Matara Centre Wedding

Beth & Phil

Matara Centre, Gloucester | April 2017

Hi Teri

We're now back in Dubai and both trying to settle back into the usual routine and get used to the 40 degree heat (yup - it's got hotter since we've been away). So I now have a moment to sit down and drop you an email to say a huge Thank you for the lovely wedding ceremony you did for Phil and I at the Matara centre.

Aside from the weather (thank goodness we kept the ceremony to 20 minutes) together with a baby who had decided she had had enough of being passed around people all morning (:-)), it was a lovely, lovely ceremony. Just what we wanted - I just wish I had more of a chance to really feel the moment; however I guess that's what all brides say. It was very us with the right balance of formality and informality, classical wedding elements and spirituality.

Thank you so much for all your help and assistance and also for the gorgeous hand fasting cord - it has come back to Dubai with us and will be included in our wedding box.

Thank you too for letting us use your PA system for the cocktail hour. I hope you managed at least to have a drink and chat to some people (and warm up).

Sam will be sending me the pictures by the end of this month, so I will be sure to share them. In the meantime, you're welcome to include me as a testimonial on your website should you wish to do so!

Take care

Best

Beth

Thank You

Cripps Stone Barn, Gloucester | August 2017

Hi Teri

We wanted to say a big thank you to you for conducting our wedding ceremony. We loved working with you to create such a perfect ceremony and we are so thrilled with what you came up with. Blending the Iranian and English elements was a unique job and we had every confidence that you would deliver something good - you did an amazing job, thank you. So many people commented on how personal and moving the ceremony was. We smiled the whole way through and our guests said they had happy tears throughout too. We LOVED the way you ended the ceremony in particular - it was so special. Thank you also for the print out of the ceremony - it is such a lovely memento of the day. Our friend has recorded the ceremony too - we haven’t watched it yet as we are still on cloud nine from the memories of last week but I’m sure before long we will be watching that too.

Thank you also for coming to meet us the day before the wedding - it really helped bring everything to life and we enjoyed meeting you very much.

Our guests also remarked about how brilliant you are - so again, thank you so much for delivering such a beautiful ceremony. We said from the start of the wedding planning process that the experience we wanted to give our guests was that they were at “Beeta and Michael’s wedding”, not just a wedding, and the ceremony, in the way that you did it, set the day up perfectly for this.

Thank you.

Very best wishes

Beeta and Michael
