Hi, I'm Theresa 👋
Easy going
You’re getting married and you know you’d love a laid back, fun and personal ceremony with a sprinkle of emotion. You also want your guests to love it & not feel bored! I’ve got you!
As a celebrant who loves a story and hates being bored, I will make sure your ceremony is to the point with a touch of humour and a sprinkling of emotion, while keeping it completely personalised. Who am I? I am Theresa, a 40-something, trilingual mom of three with lots of random life experiences in my pocket. I love to laugh, hear your stories and if there is a coffee and a packet of crisps nearby, even better! And please, call me T!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your most memorable wedding?

It is so difficult to choose only one! One in particular was the elopement of a couple, in Porto, Portugal. We found a quite spot for the ceremony and local resident decided to join us for his 3rd floor window. We also all had shots of Port wine at the end to seal the deal. It was relaxed, fun and a joy on a perfect summer's day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, Positive, Creative, Authentic, Joyful

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of being a finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards this year alongside some truly wonderful fellow Celebrants! Next year for the win!

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

Choose what you really like and want for your wedding day. It is your day and it should be all about you!

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

Labelled seats for the bridesmaids, groomsmen and flowerchildren.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

You'll get in touch or book in a date to meet & chat (or Zoom & chat, depending on location & restrictions). Over coffee or drinks we'll discuss what you're looking for. Once you know for sure you'd like me to lead your ceremony, you make that booking & send your deposit. Your date is exclusive to you, I don't have more than one ceremony a day. I then start drafting a script - you can have a read beforehand or have enjoy a surprise on the day - it's up to you. A rehearsal for the day before, unless you don't want or need one. Then the big day where I arrive early, liaise with the other suppliers & then lead the ceremony!

How do you ensure a stress-free wedding?

Find a few options for suppliers - max 4 of each - too many and you will get decision fatigue. Then choose the ones you really and truly vibe with. There is absolutely nothing worse than selecting someone you do not get on with on your wedding day!

What do you love most about your job?

I absolutely love hearing all of your stories. How you met, got together, what you love about each other. Secondly, being able to make your ceremony something truly special, the start to your wedding day that helps set the tone for the rest of the day!

What is your favourite moment at a wedding?

My absolute (I seem to like this word, ha!) favourite moment at a wedding is when you walk down the aisle. Seeing the huge amount of emotions from both of you will never ever get old for me. Love, love, love it!
