Holly Smith ♡ Celebrant London


“We are just going to come out and say right now that Holly was the MVP for our wedding. Many of our friends and family have told us how beautiful and unique our wedding was, and we know that is all thanks to her. When we first contacted Holly, we did not have an idea in our heads of what our ceremony would be like, but after several sessions with her, the ceremony she created was more than what we could have hoped for, and personalized to suit our relationship. Holly’s energy, enthusiasm, and joy made us excited to be getting married, even in those stressful months when it all felt like a mountain of work. We could both tell that Holly truly loved what she was doing, and it was such fun to work with her. She had so many thoughtful suggestions for various things we could incorporate into the ceremony to make it a better experience for us and our guests, things that we would never have thought of on our own. And on the day she was there to help make sure everything ran smoothly, even when the bride was early and the guests were late! Thank you Holly for all the little touches that made our day special, and for being such a bright spark every step of the way. We feel so lucky we found you!”

“Holly was amazing from start to finish! From our initial zoom call, to writing the ceremony script, we could not have asked for anyone more cheerful, helpful and generally fabulous! She was also amazing on the day, a great speaker and a heroine at organising a crowd of 120 people and 7 groomsmen! THANK YOU!”

– Rosie & Toby, The Manor Barn, September 2022

“Holly was one of the first people we contacted when organising our wedding. We knew we wanted a ceremony that was memorable and personal. She captured our story perfectly and we had many compliments on the day!”

“Having Holly at our wedding is one of the best decisions we have made. From our first Skype call, we knew she would be the right person to officiate our wedding ceremony. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and fully understand what we wanted for the ceremony. When we got our wedding script, it brought tears to our eyes. She has written the most beautiful story about us and the details were absolutely spot on! We felt so lucky to have found her and that we have such a lovely piece of wedding script for keepsake. It is definitely a very special moment for both of us on the day and something we will treasure for the rest of our life. We can’t thank Holly enough for making the day extra special and memorable. For those who are thinking about having a celebrant for their wedding, look no further! I definitely highly recommend Holly!”

– Sam & Paul, The Shard, July 2022

“Wholesome, loving and personal. If you want a celebrant that really genuinely cares about you, listens to you as a couple and totally encapsulates your personalities and story in her writing – Holly is for you! From the second we met (over zoom in lockdown) we gelled, feeling that she was going to make our day as special as we wanted it to be. So many guests on the day and to this day tell us our ceremony was the most personal and emotional they’d ever been to, and it’s all down to Holly. She had additional ideas, pieces of advice and nothing but love for us. She is also so funny and human making you feel at ease. All the love and gold stars from us Holly. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

“Holly was the perfect celebrant for our wedding. She took our ideas and our story and created a beautiful ceremony for us with just the right amount of quirky. We loved having so many personal touches included to share with our guests and they loved getting to learn more about us and our relationship. Holly did a fantastic job through the whole process, made us feel at ease and didn’t bat an eyelid at the many penguin references and other less usual things we wanted to include in our big day. thank you so much Holly.”

– Jessy & Matt, The Milling Barn, March 2022

“Holly is a wonderful, warm and lovely person who really gets to know each person that she works with. People have been approaching us after saying how unusual and special the ceremony was, and Holly was a huge part of crafting that.

We both felt not only that she really cared about our day but about us as people, so much so that we hope she stays in our lives way after our wedding is over. Highly recommended”

“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!”

– Rachael & Eddy, Ace Hotel, September 2018

“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.”

“We had a absolutely perfect day and loved the ceremony. We received so many wonderful comments from our guests about the ceremony, they loved how it was so personal and fun!”


– Helen & Will, Bingham Riverhouse Hotel, October 2018

“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!”

“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.”


– Fred & Mel, The Edward Lear Pub, September 2018

“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.”

“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.”

– Lesley & Matt, High Billinghurst Farm, August 2017

“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!”

“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”

– Katie & Liv, Stockbridge Barn Farm, July 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!”

“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, The Royal Automobile Club, 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.”

“Thanks so much Holly! Everyone said how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We felt so relaxed with you and enjoyed meeting you immensely. Thanks for everything.”

– Monica & Julian, Regent’s Park, August 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.”

– Catherine & Eoin, Crate Brewery, August 2015

“Holly really helped make our son’s Naming Day a lovely and special event. Her engaging personality combines with a professionalism that makes her perfect to lead an event. She suggested ideas, wrote numerous draft scripts until we were happy and brought it all together on the day. We definitely recommend!”

– The Skevington family, Family Garden, July 2015

“Holly, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding even more magical than we could have dreamed. 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. Our close family & friends all continue to comment on how well you captured our story and incorporated readings and blessings which were so meaningful. We could not imagine our wedding day without you, thank you for everything!!”
