My husband and I got married at Upwaltham Barns in July of 2017. I remember so clearly the first time I met Ellen at a wedding fair in Portsmouth; her enthusiasm and warmth of spirit were contagious and there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that she was the right person to officiate our ceremony.Being from abroad I’m not used to the way British wedding ceremonies work, and we knew we wanted to go in a different direction. Ellen was open to all of our ideas and more importantly, she just got them (and us). Her attention to detail and ability to make us feel relaxed and excited about our wedding was immensely appreciated. She always ensured that everything was just right and just the way we wanted it. She also had great ideas and helped us individually write personal vows.Ellen is incredibly talented and dedicated to both her craft and her clients. She is also an outstanding writer and orator – so many of our guests commented on how heartfelt and meaningful our ceremony was and on what a wonderful job Ellen did. Many also mentioned that there wasn’t a dull or forced moment during our ceremony.We could not recommend Ellen more!
