Full Description
Kate and Kate celebrants are former marriage registrars with over twenty years' experience conducting weddings, between them. They are both obsessed with making your ceremony exactly how you want it to be. They work with you to find out exactly what you want and then hold your hand every step of the way to make sure that's what you get. They meet you well in advance of the big day to 'get to know you', write a script that is completely personal to you, and that you have approval of, co-ordinate your ceremony (anticipating any problems even before they arise). They can conduct a ceremony anywhere you like and, unlike the registration service, they're never rushing in from one wedding or out to another, as your wedding will be the only one they'll focus on that day. You can have either Kate T (blonde) or Kate D (red-head) as your celebrant - although they're very like Ant and Dec, they don't conduct the ceremonies together! They have a hugely successful track record - check out the review on their website or on their Facebook page! They can also stay on and co-ordinate your evening should you require it - making sure it flows as smoothly as the wine!

I know we will be talking about our wedding for days, weeks, month and many years to come and we will always hold so dear to us the part you
Now the dust has settled I am sat here with a moment to contemplate the last 24 hours and I just wanted to send you a short message to show my appreciation for the wonderful part you played in our amazing day! Jess and I are so thankful that you picked us out of the crowd (and took the piss out of us for looking like a walking Specsavers ad!) nearly 3 years ago at herstmonceux castle wedding festival. We loved the whole “process” of sitting down with you at Kate towers to scoff cake and tell you our story. Which you then portrayed to all of our friends and family as if you had been there and witnessed it all. We had tens of people through out the day yesterday and today telling us how much fun our ceremony was that you conducted. That was our one requirement from our wedding day after this crappy last 18 months that we wanted people to walk out and say “wow, we needed that” So again thank you from the bottom of our hearts, I know we will be talking about our wedding for days, weeks, month and many years to come and we will always hold so dear to us the part you played within it. Thank you, thank you and thank you Lots of love Josh and Jess

The atmosphere was just brilliant. She exceeded our expectations and truly understood what we wanted for our day!
We had our fabulous wedding at Gildredge Manor in Eastbourne on 31/07/21. We wanted a relaxed ceremony and Kate delivered! If you are considering Kate and Kate to do your service then do not hesitate a minute longer! We are people who don’t like public speaking and Kate tailored our ceremony perfectly for us. We have had so many guests comment on what a great job she did! The atmosphere was just brilliant. She exceeded our expectations and truly understood what we wanted for our day! To top it off she is just so lovely! Thank you so much again Kate. Lots of love Claudia & Ben (The Baxter’s!)xxx

Wedding photograther said it was 100% the best ceremony she had ever been to
We had such a lovely day. We honestly can't thank you enough - I don't know how you did it after just one Zoom call but you made it feel so so personal. Excellent reviews from our family and friends too! Wedding photograther said it was 100% the best ceremony she had ever been to - she said thet were usually so boring and this was anything but! A lot of compliments about your lovely outfit too - 'how did she get it all to match so well?' - was a common question! A huge thank you and we hope you have a great summer.

Can't recommend her enough!
Kate (D) was incredible, super friendly, really put us at ease and guided us through the everything. On the day, her bubbly personality really shone through and she did a fantastic job of sharing our story. It was perfect for our day, and our family and friends loved the ceremony too. Kate is a lovely person, can't recommend her enough!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Kate and Kate both think the most memorable weddings are the ones where you feel the luuuurrrvvve. There have been a few over the years that have crackled with scrummy loveliness and we've gone away feeling warm, fuzzy and well jel!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, warm, intuitive, professional, relaxed

What about your business are you most proud of?

How hard we've worked, how we rise to every new challenge and how we wet ourselves laughing nearly every day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make one firm decision and everything else will follow. Oh, and make sure you reeealllly want to spend the rest of your life with that person!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

We love a personal vow - sometimes they're so gorgeous we well up! Also, love it when the kids get involved.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once you've booked either Kate... or Kate, we'll send you a questionnaire to 'get to know' you better. This is just a starting point to work from, it isn't set in stone. We'll then meet/ speak on the phone to go through your questionnaire and your further ceremony requirements, writing a bespoke ceremony which will be completely personal to you and you will have approval of. We can write something that mirrors a traditional wedding ceremony or, throw the rule book out of the window and have dancing girls and a big brass band. We turn up about an hour before the ceremony, meet each of you in turn to talk you through everything and calm those last-minute nerves. Then, woo-hoo, it's the main event - we'll conduct your ceremony with feeling, flair, warmth and wit and throw a bit of gentle sentiment in there too, for good measure. We only have one ceremony on any given day, so will not be rushing in from one or rushing off to another one - we're all yours. And we even give you a beautiful commemorative certificate to remember the day by. What's not to like!

What is the most unusual thing you’ve been asked to plan?

Themed weddings can be interesting! Between us we've been pirates, witches and Star War characters! Love a bit of dressing up!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Drugs and alcohol...!! Only joking! We know exactly what we're doing and can anticipate any problems before they arise - you really are safe in our hands.

What do you love most about your job?

The privilege of being part of people's lives at such an amazing time... It's a bit icky but we really do mean it. Even after all these years, we still bloody love a wedding!

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

When the couple spend the first moments after the service signing their Commemorative Certificate and relax together after the tension of the ceremony. Suddenly you see the real them and it's just gorgeous.
