Full Description
I am a multi-award winning celebrant creating bespoke wedding ceremonies with a touch of sparkle. I create and officiate bespoke wedding ceremonies for modern couples who want a ceremony that reflects their personalities and beliefs. I take time to get to know you so that on the day you get a ceremony that is truly you - whether it be traditional, contemporary, romantic, beautifully simple or completely quirky! You can include symbolic elements such a a sand ceremony or a hand-fasting, involve children, friends and family, even pets! A celebrant ceremony is a fantastic opportunity to do something different on your special day. I'd love to chat with you about how I can help create your fabulous wedding ceremony and a lifetime of amazing memories. As 'Wedding Celebrant of the Year 2022 South East England' you are in safe hands and I am focussed on putting your unique story at the heart of your ceremony

Wonderful bespoke ceremony
Colette officiated at our wedding recently and I would have no hesitation recommending her. From the start, Colette listened to our wishes and built a wonderful bespoke ceremony which made our day very special. Colette's warm personality shone through on the day and we couldn't have wished for more. Colette is easy to do business with and I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Colette!

Made us laugh and cry!
Our ceremony was a really special part of our day. Colette got to know all the little details about our lives - when and how we met, and what's important to us in our lives together. She wrote our story and it made us laugh and cry, with all the personal touches. On the day the time just flew by! Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was and it just couldn't have been more perfect.

Superb celebrant
We asked Colette to be our celebrant for our wedding at very short notice due to last minute complications with our arrangements and Colette saved the ceremony and made our wedding so special! Colette is a superb celebrant, providing a high quality and personalised service from start to finish. She really spent time getting to know us, resulting in a celebration that was memorable and full of personal touches. We are so grateful to Colette for helping make our special day so perfect

Personal touch
Colette saved our day! We had to find a celebrant to replace ours within 24 hours of our wedding. She listened to what we wanted and picked up all the details quickly. We had to run inside halfway through the ceremony when the heavens opened and Colette managed the situation well while adding her own personal touch to the ceremony. Our guests also thought she was great!

amazing ceremony
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The ceremony was honestly the highlight of the day for me and regardless of restrictions I wouldn't have done it any other way. Our guests were also really complimentary about you.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you again for everything yesterday, we were both so pleased with your professionalism and the wording of the ceremony was awesome (tear jerking!). Fantastic day!
