Hi, I'm Teri
I have been lucky enough to work as a celebrant for around 8 years and have loved every moment of being involved with many weddings, baby naming, renewal of vows and funerals in that time.
I trained with The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and you can be assured that my training has been first class giving me the confidence to work with couples and families to write ceremonies that reflect who they are are as couples, individuals and families.
I am very much a people person and really get as excited about your special occasion as you do. I like to dress well and appropriately for the occasion, I have even been known to dress in appropriate fancy dress for a themed wedding.
Creating a ceremony with my couples is a wonderful collaborative experience and I love it when I get it just right. I am proud to have received many 5 star reviews.
What's my ceremony style?
I like my ceremonies to be fun and friendly and to include your guests wherever possible. I am not fazed if there are hiccups on the day, giving the appearance of an elegant swan whilst paddling furiously.
I am unique in that there is only 1 of me, what you see is what you get
Why choose Teri?
I am fun and outgoing, down to earth, accommodating and friendly. I often see the funny side of life, but at the same time can be serious when the occasion calls for it.
What do I offer?
“I love you not only for what you are, but for who I am when I am with you”
Your love story is unique, therefore your wedding will be unique to you too. I will work closely with you to create a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple and as individuals. This is a collaborative process and we talk about your past, present and future and your hopes and dreams for your life together to create the perfect ceremony to celebrate your love for one another.
We can include the more traditional elements to your ceremony such as the ring exchange and promises, which I encourage you to write and keep secret until your special day, however, you may want to include a symbolic ritual too, such as a handfasting where your hands are bound with ribbons, a beer or wine ceremony or something we invent that is totally unique to you.
My style is fun, sincere, warm and friendly.
Why choose Teri for your wedding?
Teri was incredible, super lovely and very professional throughout the entire process. She spent a lot of time working on and refining the ceremony with us in the preceding months. On the day, she was our dream celebrant, the ceremony went without a hitch and we’ve had nothing but compliments from our guests about how lovely, funny and emotional the ceremony was. Highly recommended!
“A Baby makes love stronger, the days shorter, the nights longer, savings smaller and a home happier”
Bestowing your baby a name is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, likewise choosing the right supporting adults or “godparents” is equally important. Together we will create a ceremony to introduce and welcome your baby to your family and friends.
You might have been fortunate to adopt a child and wish to celebrate their joining your family with an adoption ceremony. Adoption is a choice and a promise to love a child not of your flesh, through the good times and the difficult times we all have with children as they grow into confident adults. There is no reason why you can’t choose supporting adults or “godparents” for your child whatever their age.

Renewal of Vows
Couples arrange renewal of vows celebrations for many reasons, to celebrate a notable anniversary, 10th, 20th, 40th, following a life changing event or maybe to reunite after a period of separation. Whatever your reasons we will work together to create a unique celebration of your life together.
You might want to write new promises to each other or re-affirm the vows you made years ago in front of important and special family and friends. If you want to write new promises to each other and are not sure where to start, I can help you with this and have a workbook you can work through to create meaningful words to share on the day.
Why choose Teri for your renewal of vows?
Teri was an absolute joy from start to finish for us! She came onboard just a few weeks before as our friend who was set to officiate was suddenly unable. As soon as we’d spoken I knew Teri knew exactly what she was doing and also had a wonderful, joyful vibe about her that would be perfect for our day. Teri guided us through some changes and additions to a script I had already written and also suggested we write promises to each other which have became my favourite and most personal and important part of our wedding.
Love doesn’t end with dying or leave in the last breath. For someone you’ve loved deeply, love doesn’t end with death….
I work closely with the family of the person who has died to create a send off that pays tribute to and celebrates the life of your much loved family member. We can use music, readings and poems that may be appropriate to your loved one and the ceremony will be all about “them” their life story, achievements and the legacy they leave behind.
I work closely with a number of Funeral Directors in Trowbridge, Swindon and the surrounding areas. Whilst it is understandable you might want to use the celebrant that the Funeral Director suggests, you are not obliged to do so and you are free to use a celebrant of your choice.

Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provided for mum. It was just perfect I loved the committal words, everything felt so right and a true reflection of mum. It was even more perfect because we were a small group who knew and loved her so it felt extra special. After the service we went to Stanton Park a had a picnic, and in the evening we walked on the Ridgeway and toasted mum’s life with champagne while watching the sunset. Thank you again Teri.
