Thank you very much for being such a huge and wonderful part of our special day. We received so many wonderful compliments about the ceremony, and we owe a huge thanks to you for that. You made the ceremony very personal to us, and everyone noticed this and said how amazing it was. Me and Lewis both knew from our first Skype call with you that we were in safe hands, you made us both feel relaxed and calm and answered all our questions. Thank you so much Binny we are so glad you got to be part of our special day. Chloe Pedelty

I'd just like to say a massive thank you from Brian and I for making our ceremony so special. We truly loved everything about it and both thought that what you wrote described us down to a tee. We had so many of our guests tell us how unique it was and how beautifully personalised it was to Brian and I as a couple - and that's all down to you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are blessed to have met you, and have you there with us on our big day. Once again, thank you so much for all that you did for you and for helping to make our wedding day all that we hoped for. Lots of love, Sophie x

I DO have an amazing job, I'm lucky - I'm a Celebrant. There are so many exciting moments to enjoy in my profession - and some scary ones too - the scary ones being a best man who's forgotten the rings and, oh yes, believe me, that does happen, or the brides entrance music which was supposed to be Ed Sheran's - ‘Shape of You' mysteriously turns into the ‘Star Wars' theme - and yes that has happened too.

But, when I meet my bride and groom for the first time it is such a special occasion, I always get excited - guaranteed. I love meeting new people, but to meet new people who are massively in love is an absolute joy. Every couple is unique and I have the privilege to lead them through the most important ceremony of their lifetime - it's a wonderful thing - in fact it's an honour.

So, the first meeting is a very big deal as we start to talk about the actual wedding ceremony in detail. For most of my couples this discussion is where it all begins to get a bit real - Eeeek - the scary stuff, and not surprisingly my couples get nervous.

Usually at this point in the huge list of wedding ‘things to do',the date has been set, the perfect venue booked, the beautiful dress bought - but now come the home truths. As we sit together on skype or over a coffee in a café we get to the bit where I have to remind you that you've got to stand up in front of all your love ones and declare your love and commitment to each other for a lifetime. Yes, actually say it all out loud in front of loads of people live, in HD with surround sound.

Sometimes I can see the knee jangling fear in just a glance from fiancée to fiancée, as I say; “So, have you thought about what you'd like to say in your vows?”. As my couples grasp their hands tighter, I watch them looking into each others eyes in an,‘are we actually doing this - really doing this - actually, really doing this, for real?', kind of way. It makes first date nerves look like child's play.

But this is my job, the bit that I'm there for, you can fall into my open celebrant's arms and relax. We'll talk about the fact that you haven't got a clue what you want to say or that your fiancé also wants to pledge a lifelong vow to the Arsenal football club. We'll talk about your worries over Sophie the flower girl's inability to walk up the aisle without punching Olie, her cute brother who's carrying the rings. We'll talk about the fact you'll cry when your Dad gives you away and that your mascara will smudge. But, most importantly this is the bit when I remind you that your beautiful ceremony, the most important of your life,is all about you and your love and nothing to be scared of. I'm here to be your knee knocking stopper, your voice steadier and your wedding rock… and I'm excited.
