Holly was such a special part of our wedding day. We chose to have a more personal wedding ceremony so it was important to us that the right person married us. From our first Skype call with Holly we were impressed. She was fun, friendly and cared about our story!

My husband and I both answered some questions from Holly which worked for us as we could do them in our own time, then she took our answers and worked them into a lovely script.

On the day itself, it was lots of people’s first time attending a ceremony of this nature, and even the more traditional guests were wowed by how special and personal our ceremony was.

Thank you Holly!

“Holly thank you so much for marrying us. It was absolutely perfect. A perfect mix of soppy and funny. So much more personal than having the usual registrar. Everyone commented on how lovely it was.”

Holly Smith - Celebrant London - Asylum Wedding

“We had an amazing wedding day, and Holly’s ceremony was a big part of that. We chose to have a Celebrant perform the ceremony as we wanted it to be really personal, unique and intimate, Holly delivered all of this and more! All our guests really loved it too! She made the experience of writing the script really easy and relaxed, listening to what we wanted and adding in her creative flare. We would highly recommend Holly for anyone’s big day!”

Fred & Mel's Wedding - Holly Smith Celebrant

“One of our very best decisions was choosing Holly as our celebrant! Getting the ceremony right was a real priority for us – we knew we didn’t want a religious or formal ceremony and we wanted to make it personal and built around us. The whole process was a lot of fun; it made us think about our relationship and what makes it special, and thanks to Holly it was also stress-free. The end result was absolutely perfect – just the right mixture of fun and informal but with serious moments (and some tears from the audience!).

One of the first things everyone said was how great both the ceremony and celebrant were. Lots of guests were quite jealous and said they wished they’d had something more personal and unusual.

I would not hesitate to recommend Holly to anyone! Thanks again – a brilliant start to the day.”

Celebrant London - Katie and Liv wedding at Stockbridge Barn Farm

“Holly was an absolutely fantastic celebrant! From the first Skype consultation we knew she was a perfect fit; young, warm, friendly, genuine and totally passionate about what she does.  Holly really got us, she was so good to work with and happy to making any changes we asked for along the way.

On the day she put everyone at ease and delivered a perfect ceremony (I say this with a tear in my eye).  We absolutely loved it, as did all of our guests… everybody commented on how ‘us’ it was!

Thank you so much Holly! x”

Celebrant London - Lesley and Matt Wedding“We were lucky to have you to help us with our wedding day. You have been easy to talk to throughout and listened to us and understood what we wanted, and then helped explain it to us I think! I was worried that some people might think I was being greedy and wanting everything in our wedding ceremony, but you were always encouraging and never once made me feel that. Rather, you put the emphasis on finding the combination of elements that was right for us and it turned out perfectly.

 

On the day itself you were hugely reassuring to us both before the ceremony, when I at least was very nervous. As I knew you would, you led us through smoothly and with grace and professionalism.

Many, many thanks for making our marriage ceremony feel ‘real’ and helping us be as relaxed as we wanted to be.we were surprised by how emotional doing our questionnaires was – Matt and I did them separately, and I made a stab at some approximate vows, and then we compared. There were many tears and much hugging – that was the point getting married felt really real I think. So, you didn’t just help us plan our marriage ceremony, but guided us through the process of preparing for it too.”

Celebrant London - Jessy and Jock wedding

“Holly was a wonderful celebrant for us. We had had a small wedding in New Zealand and this was our larger London celebration for a larger group of friends and family. She was great at putting together a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted in order to renew our vows again in a meaningful way that was very personal to us. Everyone commented afterwards what a lovely ceremony it had been. She also made the initial process of putting the ceremony together over Skype calls enjoyable and easy.”

Celebrant London - Hannah and Henry Wedding at St Dunstans in the East

“Holly was one of the highlights of our ceremony. She took so much time to really get to know us and build our ceremony around our own unique story as a couple. All of our guests said it was one of the most beautiful and personal ceremonies they’ve ever been a part of — honestly, we can’t recommend Holly enough!”

 

– Hannah & Henry, August 2017

 

“Me and my husband Matt were married by Holly this summer. We can not recommend her more highly. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and delivered in the most perfect way. Holly spent time getting to know us as a couple and understanding a little bit about our relationship. Our ceremony was very personal and easily the best part of our wedding day. It is something we have to cherish for the rest of our lives. Holly has a gift and we are so grateful she was able to marry us. After the wedding so many of our friends commented on how personal and romantic our ceremony was, even the men were shedding a tear or two. Thanks again Holly!”

– Jade & Matt, June 2016

“When planning our wedding we wanted every single detail to feel personal and fun, but for there also to be a proper ceremony that was meaningful. We met with several celebrants initially, but as soon as we met Holly she fit the brief completely. She felt like someone we’d be friends with anyway, and had lots of creative ideas and knew exactly what we wanted. Quirky, heartfelt and no cheese!

Organising our wedding from another continent meant I probably sent endless emails but she was always so kind and supportive. After we sent her our questionnaires, the ceremony she sent back to us was absolutely perfect. It was such an enjoyable process of creating our own unique ceremony and a welcome breather from the usual pre-wedding craziness!

All our guests are still raving about our ceremony. It really couldn’t have been better. We can’t recommend her enough! We just wish we could do it all over again…”

– Alice & Greg, August 2016

 

“Holly was undoubtedly the perfect celebrant for our day. From the first time we skyped, we instantly connected and she quickly understood what we were all about and what we wanted from our wedding ceremony. She listened to our slightly obscure requests and made everything run smoothly. We would highly recommend Holly to any couple wanting a fun and relaxed ceremony.”

– Jonny & Rosa, September 2016

“Our planner Ayshea recommended Holly to do our ceremony and we felt it was a perfect fit. She’s young, full of life and has her own unique style. She asked us questions about our relationship and tailored the ceremony and speech around us. She also helped guide us through the different parts and made us feel relaxed, even when everyone was delayed by traffic! Everyone loved her and asked us about her during the day.”

“Holly, we just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and for conducting such a beautiful ceremony on Saturday. We couldn’t have wanted it to go more perfectly! Our friends and family also commented on how wonderful and personal it was, including one friend who said it was the most moving ceremony he’s ever been to (with a tear in his eye!).

We couldn’t have hoped for a better weekend of festivities- it has been phenomenal and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you.”

You were such a special part of our beautiful day and we are so grateful to you for creating a ceremony which was personal, warm, professional, serious, humorous and spiritual all at once. We loved and embraced your suggestion of the friend and family vow which ensured that all of our guests felt involved.

She suggested ideas, wrote numerous draft scripts until we were happy and brought it all together on the day. We definitely recommend!”
