Bespoke wedding ceremonies tailor-made to suit you, so you can have the wedding that you really want

I have had the pleasure of working with dozens of couples since I launched Sue Dowell Celebrancy in January 2013, helping them to create the perfect, very personal wedding ceremony that is just right for them for their big day. I’ve lead ceremonies everywhere from private family gardens, to the Globe Theatre in London; from country houses, to an RSPB centre in Derbyshire; and from bespoke five star wedding venues, to farmyards converted just for the day. Every single one of them unique, and very special.

With every couple I work with, I start with a blank canvas and build in all the elements that are important to you, making your ceremony as traditional or unusual as you wish. There are no restrictions on incorporating religious or spiritual elements to suit your beliefs, and there is complete flexibility in the format and wording of the service itself.

Our lives don’t fit neatly into a pre-labelled box, so why should your wedding ceremony?

    So many of our guests commented on what a lovely service it was and how unlike any other they had been to. They mentioned how personal it was and just the right balance between being a formal ceremony whilst at the same time being so relaxed. We both had an absolutely amazing day and are so glad that we chose you to be our celebrant. Many thanks for everything,
