Right balance of love story, humour and emotion
Ruby was amazing from start to finish. We had a couple of video chats at the start, and told her our story. We had a little practice run at the venue the day before which put everyone at ease and made sure we all knew our parts on the day. Then the big day came, the ceremony had just the right balance of love story, humour and emotion....all the guests loved it! We finished the ceremony with a hand fasting which was a perfect way to wrap things up (pardon the pun). Highly recommended!! Andy and Natalie

A beautiful ceremony
Ruby was warm on our first meeting which is just what I needed as it was nerve racking. She went through everything in detail and took the time to learn peoples names and involved them so beautifully on the day. Nothing was too much or too little for Ruby. She always messaged back with calming helpful words when I was the other end of the phone stressing over little details. On the day I felt rushed up to the aisle as my husband said he was going to look at me as soon as I got to the door. However Ruby suggested to him not to look till I was at a nice distance and then she said he could look and I could see his expression on his face. I’d been so excited for the day I didn’t cry about it. Then trust me nothing but happy tears on the day as Ruby read out our memories of how we first met and how well we get on. There were funny parts in there too and it was wonderful how my children were involved in the hand tie part. Everyone who came said how it was such a beautiful ceremony and how good Ruby was. Me and my husband both recommend Ruby, a very organised pleasant person. Thank you Ruby. And if you’re thinking of using someone as a Celebrant, search no more. Just drop her a message. You wont regret it. xx Amy and Neil xx

A wonderful way with words
From the first meeting with Ruby we knew we wanted her to be our celebrant! She has a wonderful way with words and most importantly, it feels personal! From the outset she explained everything to us and gave us all our options for the service, as well as bits of advice during the planning process. She prioritised getting to know us through chats over Skype - which bridged the gap in time between booking and the big day. With Ruby finding out so much about us, the words she spoke at our ceremony meant so much more, they weren't coming from a stranger or someone who assumed what we were like as people, she knew who we were as individuals but also as a couple. The majority of our guests had never been to a "non church wedding" before and they all loved Ruby and the ceremony we'd put together with her (we had a few readings, a hand fasting and a tree planting). So many people commented on how wonderful she was. Our wedding went perfectly and Ruby was the first part of it all so got us off to a great start! If we ever renew our vows, she'll be the first person we call! *5 STARS*. Tom & Kristy

Personal, intimate, unique and special
Ant and I would like to extend a huge thank you to you for being our brilliant celebrant! The ceremony was all that we’d hoped for and more: personal, intimate, unique and special. We absolutely loved it! It seems our guests agreed too, as we’ve lost count of the number of relatives and friends who’ve told us it was the best ceremony they’ve ever witnessed in their lives! The love story, hand fastening and minute of reflection were all big hits in particular. We have to agree!  Thank you again for giving Ant and I such beautiful memories of our special day. We’ll never forget you.  All the best,  Elleni & Ant

Informal yet concise
Ruby has been absolutely FANTASTIC in helping make our wedding such a wonderful and special day to both of us and to all our guests. We had several meeting over the course of the year, all very informal yet concise. We both were a little ‘clueless’ in how things should be done and Ruby very professionally helped us find what worked for us. The ceremony was better than either of us could have imagined and Ruby brought it all together so well, really making it our story. Our day in simple terms was just perfect. Thank you Jake and Ryan

Unpressured and personal
Ruby had exactly the warmth, clarity and friendliness that we wanted for our ceremony. She was always interested, bright and chatty, open to our ideas to make the ceremony personal to us while at the same time providing suggestions to help us through the daunting process of choosing vows. In short she played a huge part in making our wedding day fun and memorable. We would 100% recommend Ruby to others looking to have an unpressured and personal wedding. Jamie & Sophie

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is memorable but I love when a couple have a venue and style that is just right for them. Like the one where two guys had their ceremony in Mykonos where they met or the vintage one in a village hall and everything just came together and the one in a stately home where the couple wanted to show their Australian relatives some British traditions.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Warm, personal, professional, humorous, unique

What about your business are you most proud of?

That every ceremony is written especially for the couple and reflects who they are.

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

Have a day that suits who you are not who others want you to be.

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

Beautiful bookmark orders of the day made by a bride’s mother.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

An initial chat by Skype or Facebook before booking to be sure we are right for each other. Then e mails until a few months before when we will meet in person or electronically for me to listen to their story in detail and agree content. I will liaise with others such as readers, prepare an order of ceremony with “stage directions” for those who need it and then deliver an amazing ceremony on the day leaving the couple with a certificate and various momentoes of the day.

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

A circus themed naming ceremony for a child. I was dressed as the ringmaster. Great fun.

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Lots of listening, detailed preparation and ensuring that I arrive early enough to deal with any last minute hitches. If it would be helpful I also do a rehearsal.

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

The vows - when a couple makes promises to each other in front of their family and friends that they intend to last a lifetime.
