“We booked Tara for our wedding in November 2023 as we wanted something a little different and from our first phone call we knew we wanted to book.

Tara was fantastic and helped us so much to create the perfect ceremony for us and our guests. I felt that Tara had everything under control, and she kept us updated in the lead-up to the wedding so we knew everything was in hand. 

We honestly can’t thank Tara enough for helping to make our day so special.”

“Tara was the first celebrant we met and after meeting, the only one we met. We knew that Tara was the person we wanted to make our special day that little bit more special. Tara was attentive from the get-go and took time to get to know us before creating a truly amazing ceremony for us and our guests.

We have had so many compliments since our wedding in regards to how beautiful & personal the ceremony was! We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant to share our special day with us and we highly recommend her services. Thank you again, Tara.”

“Tara was quite simply amazing! We couldn’t have asked for more from our celebrant. Tara really took the time to get to know us as a couple with enjoyable chats over coffee and cake. She drafted a beautiful ceremony script and was very happy to accommodate any changes or preferences.

The ceremony was so personal and meaningful, and we were both incredibly moved as Tara shared our story with our guests and guided us through our vows.

We had so many guests tell us that it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had been to, which is a huge testament to Tara and all the hard work she put in. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tara.”

“We met with a few celebrants before Tara but within minutes of chatting we 100% knew she was the right person to conduct our wedding ceremony. There is something so confident, reassuring and trustworthy about Tara that helped us feel at ease throughout the whole process.

Tara took the time to get to know us and wrote a ceremony script that reflected us really well as a couple and accounted for all of our preferences. She was an excellent communicator and made the effort to visit us the day before the wedding to help settle nerves and go over final details and logistics.

She delivered the ceremony so professionally and with humour, metaphorically holding our hand along the way helping to calm nerves. We received lots of comments during and after the wedding day about how good our celebrant was. Would definitely recommend Tara the Celebrant – you will be in safe hands!”

“Tara was an absolutely wonderful part of our wedding in September. Throughout the process, she was warm, easy to talk to and so very helpful. She took all of our stories and thoughts and crafted them into a truly lovely ceremony.

On the day she arrived with everything we would need (vows and readings included!) and guided us through the ceremony in such a natural way. Couldn’t have asked for more and we would highly recommend her!”

Tara was the celebrant for our wedding this year and she was absolutely brilliant. She took so much time getting to know me and my husband and made sure she was able to build a really rich picture of us and our relationship in the ceremony.

The way she scripted and conducted the ceremony itself was fantastic. It felt so personal to us and so well put together. We’ve had so many people tell us it was the best and most fun ceremony they’ve ever been to – and we agree!

Can’t thank Tara enough, she’s an absolute pleasure to work with, and made our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect!”

“Tara conducted our wedding ceremony in Bath and we couldn’t recommend someone more.  We needed someone last minute, but Tara still took the time to get to know us. We met for coffee and brainstormed ideas for the ceremony and she gave wonderful tips without being pushy or opinionated.

Throughout the whole process she really made us feel like this was our event and she was just there to make it as special and meaningful as she could. She also gave us a fantastic vendor recommendation of a photographer who turned out to be amazing!

Working with Tara was like having a friend, wedding planner and celebrant all in one. I couldn’t recommend someone more!”

Thank you also for being flexible and tailoring everything to our needs. The ceremony felt just right and exactly what we wanted as a couple.  

We also really appreciated your guidance and suggestions throughout the planning process. We’ve had many guests comment on how beautiful the ceremony was. I especially loved hearing the things that Dave wrote about me – that was a particularly special moment for me.”

“Thank you so much for being the Celebrant at our wedding. The ceremony was the highlight of the day and so many people commented on how much they loved it.

You were so accommodating of all of our ideas (including singalongs, readings and our dog being the ring bearer) as well as our last-minute sending of the vows! You made us feel so comfortable and relaxed when standing up in front of everyone that it felt like it was just the three of us at times. 

You have such warmth and that was apparent not only on the day but in all of our interactions with you, including the first time we met. Thank you for making our day so special – we would recommend you to anyone.”

From providing suggestions on the scripting, to the ceremonial hand knotting, the help on the personal vows and then the delivery of such an amazing and inclusive service, you truly went above and beyond even our already high expectations from our advance interactions with you. 

The feedback on the ceremony from both family and friends has been wonderful and your role in it has been front and centre in the comments.”

Tara was able to weave in so many personal stories and touches throughout the ceremony and absolutely stuck to our brief of light hearted and funny.

Everything felt so special and personal and you really helped put me at ease as soon as I saw you, it was like seeing a friend for the first time in a long time which is crazy seeing as though we hadn’t met in person before then.

It’s honestly been such a pleasure having you conduct our ceremony. Forever grateful.”

“We had the best day ever, it was perfect as cliché as that sounds. The ceremony was amazing in every way, one of the treasured memories of our day. I was very nervous and felt so out of my comfort zone, but you were so calm and graceful that it almost enveloped me and helped put me more at ease. 

Your words were beautiful and the tone was just right, the perfect vibe for us as a couple and indeed as a family. I cannot thank you enough, from the very first meeting where you were so friendly and welcoming, the help and advice along the way to our wonderfully perfect ceremony on the day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am already dreaming of a ten-year vow renewal to do it all again and there is no one we would want but you.”

Due to personal reasons, we had to move our wedding date closer. Tara not only helped us with this but treated us with kindness, care and went as far as getting us an extra gift! We would absolutely recommend Tara to anyone looking for a celebrant for their events.

Everyone told us how great the ceremony was and we look forward to employing Tara for future life events.”

“Tara conducted our ceremony for us at The Mount Without in Bristol. When we first met Tara it felt as if we’d known her for years. She is able to put you at ease right away and has such a warm and welcoming presence.

She is also extremely organised and responsive and always willing to go the extra mile. The little touches Tara added over the two years we were speaking / planning were so thoughtful.

She also listened to us closely and took the time to get to know us which resulted in the most personal and memorable ceremony. We had so many compliments on the ceremony and how wonderful Tara was.

She really is the perfect mix of warmth and professionalism. You can tell how passionate she is about her work and her couples, and we felt so well looked after by Tara throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend Tara enough and hope we will remain friends for years to come!”

Since the moment we met, she put us at ease and made the whole process incredibly easy.  She was also kind enough to share her contacts with us and we were able to book a fantastic photographer because of this.”

Can’t recommend her enough, generous, caring, and fab at what she does.”

“We had Tara for our ceremony and it was so beautiful. Tara did an amazing job capturing both our personalities and our journey together as individuals and as a couple. We wanted to incorporate both our heritage, background and character into our ceremony to make it ours and Tara did a brilliant job bringing it all together. 

She was also open to incorporating traditions and rituals both old and new to her for our ceremony which was an amazing experience because we could curate the whole ceremony based on elements and rituals that were both dear to us and symbolic of our roots and family traditions.

Everyone loved how beautiful the ceremony was and it genuinely felt like we were being celebrated on the day by all our family and friends. Tara played such a huge part in making it all so special and it felt more like a friend who was guiding us and officiating us as man and wife on the day.

She really does go out of her way to make you feel special and celebrated on your day!! We also received lovely little gifts from her before and after our wedding which were so thoughtful and beautifully put together. 

It’s been such an amazing journey and experience and we cannot recommend Tara enough.”

Tara was beyond fantastic! From the day we met over Zoom, to the day of our ceremony, she was a ray of sunshine!

She beams positivity and enthusiasm and wants nothing but the best for you.

She makes you feel so comfortable and like you have known her for years.

The way she conducted our ceremony hit the spot and made our day that extra bit special.

Tara is thorough and extremely timely and her communication is phenomenal! You will be beyond thrilled if you choose Tara!”

I don’t even know where to start to try and explain how wonderful Tara is! We had the pleasure of Tara conducting our wedding ceremony in October, and she really helped us capture the love and personalised service that we were after. Tara not only was amazing with all her communications, being available on emails, calls, and WhatsApp on any day, she made us feel relaxed and secure knowing that she was helping us create our dream service.

Tara is there to help you every step of the way, passing on her own experiences and advice, but never pushing what she feels you should have. Not only this, Tara also goes above and beyond for you on the day, ensuring everything is set up, and speaking with anyone involved in the service to help them feel relaxed.

Tara also kindly gifted us with the most beautiful poem in a frame along with our full service for us to keep which we will treasure forever. If I could get married all over again, I would have Tara there again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Celebrant for any special occasion. Tara has become a friend and will always be a big part in our wedding and marriage. Thank you for everything Tara, we are eternally grateful.”

Organising a UK wedding from Australia certainly has its challenges. With the venue locked in, the booking of our celebrant was next… Tara came recommended so we promptly booked in a Zoom call to “meet” and discuss our options. My (now) wife and I immediately felt Tara’s warmth and passion for her work. We knew instantly she was the perfect fit and although encouraged by Tara to take a few days to think about it, we booked her in before hanging up on the call. She spent time getting to know us and to learn our love story and this really showed on our big day. She went the extra mile in every way – from posting us a lovely wedding reading book all the way to Australia, to shouting us breaky when we arrived in the UK when we finally got to meet in person. She also gave us the most thoughtful wedding gifts and handmade card. On the big day, she delivered our story with care and there was not a dry eye in the house. She was a constant source of calm and would offer encouragement when emotions were high. Tara made our day absolutely perfect and we cannot thank her enough!”

“We met Tara through a mutual friend and from the initial contact we knew she would be the perfect person to conduct our ceremony.

Every meet-up ahead of the wedding felt like we were meeting up with an old friend – we felt so comfortable and Tara just got us!

The ceremony script moved me to tears on the initial read and on the big day itself it really was just perfect! We had tears and laughter, and everyone could feel the love!

So many of our friends and family have also commented on what a wonderful ceremony it was, how intimate, heartfelt and personal it was. Even the vows felt like they were written especially for me and my now husband!

We can’t thank Tara enough and would recommend her to anyone!”

Having a Celebrant allows you the opportunity to tell your story in a more conventional way, with emotion, laughter and honesty. And Tara absolutely nailed it for us! 

Right from the start, Tara has been so kind, welcoming and supportive with us. Aside from the coffee meet-ups, she was always on hand to ask any questions, make any amendments to the ceremony and gave advice on vows. 

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony, and we had comments from our guests saying, “It’s the best ceremony they’ve been to”. We wouldn’t have wanted it any other way and are so grateful to Tara for interpreting and conveying our feelings for each other in such a meaningful way. 

Thank you Tara, you made our day that extra bit special!”

“How do we even begin?… Without your guidance and presence, our wedding wouldn’t have been a wedding, but simply a party.

You helped us to share our story and express our love in front of all of our favourite people, in a way that was true to us. So many of our guests approached us after to say how amazing and moving the ceremony was – that was all thanks to you. 

We can’t thank you enough and we wish you all the best and hope our paths cross again.”

“We cannot recommend Tara the Celebrant highly enough.

From our very first telephone conversation, we connected and knew that Tara was going to work perfectly with us to make our celebration truly personal to us. She was kind and bubbly and we had an instant rapport.

Tara guided us through our vow renewal planning and listened carefully to our love story. She could not have been more helpful and thoughtful. She really understood what we wanted to say and achieve on our special day.

Tara sent us ideas for our vows and also suggested we include a Celtic Hand Fasting ritual into our ceremony, which was absolutely beautiful and so moving.

Nothing was too much trouble and we felt that everything for our day was unique and personally tailored to us and our celebration.

She was a consummate professional but with a wonderful personal touch that was simply lovely. Her joy and enthusiasm were infectious and she really captured the essence of our celebration and made our vow renewal day truly magical.

We had so many lovely compliments about the ceremony, most were about Tara and how the ceremony had been one of the most beautiful and moving that they had ever been to.

We could not have wished for anything more. Thank you so very much, Tara.”

She very much encouraged us to write our own vows. I’m so glad we did. It was such a beautiful part of our ceremony and many of our guests said it was their favourite part of the ceremony. Tara is such a wonderful soul. She showed such a willingness to really understand us as people and as a couple. We both felt like we were in safe hands on the day as she had taken so much time to understand us. Everything had such a personal touch. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our ceremony something so special. We will treasure these memories forever.”

Our wedding day really would not have been the same without her. Thank you so much, Tara.”

You were a total joy to plan our wedding day with and I lost count of how many people said how good you were! The wedding card and gifts were so thoughtful of you. What a lovely lady you are – from the time we said ‘yes please’ to you at the beginning, to the ‘I wills’ on the big day. Keep doing what you are doing, you make so many smiles.”

She stayed close throughout the whole planning process and made us both feel very special in the run-up to the big day. Tara had words of wisdom, tips and stories, but also worked with us to make sure the ceremony went just the way we’d dreamed it.

Tara’s little touches really made the experience even more special for us and we shared many Mini Schnauzer stories along the way. We’d best get her booked up for the renewal of vows now, because I’m sure her diary will be full for many moons to come.”

The little touches like a printed copy of the ceremony script and vows and a book of love poems were so lovely and will be cherished forever. Thank you Tara for being so approachable and patient with us!”

You got to know us as individuals and as a couple and guided us through the whole process, which settled our nerves leading up to the big day.

We absolutely loved all the attention to detail throughout the process, and the thought you put into our ceremony wording. It really did capture the essence of our relationship and everyone commented on how perfectly it summed us up.

I was quite nervous getting to the end of the aisle, but seeing your reassuring smile put us both immediately at ease. You were a consummate professional and the love you have for your job shines through, everyone said it was an amazing experience.

We really can’t thank you enough Tara, and thank you also for your lovely card and gift. Such a special touch!”

Tara your warmth, understanding and bubbly personality turned our day into a fairy tale. A day we will never forget.

Thank you for absolutely everything. We shall never forget your kindness or the day you gave us. Thank you so very much.”

She was brilliant throughout the process, really getting to know us, supporting us all the way through the planning stages and making it easy and zero stress.

On the big day itself, the ceremony was beautiful and tailored perfectly to suit our style, so both of us were at ease. All of our friends and family commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how personal it felt, which both Lucy and I completely agreed with.

Thank you Tara for your support and help and for making the day so memorable – it honestly couldn’t have been better! Thank you.”

Tara wrote the most lovely ceremony for us, incorporating everything we wanted and made it very personal to us. She even met us in person to go through everything before the big day.

On the day, Tara was professional, caring and took control of the ceremony in the most professional way, still being so warming towards us and all our guests. We had numerous people comment how wonderful they found the ceremony.

I would not hesitate to recommend Tara to anyone who is requesting a Celebrant. She is absolutely fantastic!”

“We were so very pleased that Tara conducted our wedding ceremony; we’d highly recommend her. Having a Celebrant for your vows makes the occasion so much more personal than the legal ceremony, you have much more time and Tara works with you to create a completely bespoke experience, from the introduction and your love story to the timings of the readings, through to the vows, where you’re free to add your very own personal touch, but with guidance and professional recommendations from Tara.

We loved Tara so much. We met up with her and her family on holiday the week after the wedding. It was so lovely and special to have been able to meet the person that conducted our wedding ceremony on our honeymoon!”

“I feel very lucky that we met Tara.  From the very first time we spoke on the phone, we got on like a house on fire, and when I first met her in person, I felt like I was talking to a friend that I had known for a while. Tara listened to our story, asked lots of questions, and tapped into the themes and feel of the wedding that we were trying to create, and came back to us with some wonderful, heartfelt words, that mirrored everything we had talked about. Her attention to detail was fabulous, and it was obvious that she was really investing in us as a couple, and managed to create the perfect sentiment for our ceremony.

On the actual day, she was exceptionally professional and calm, and put everyone at ease – not always an easy task when there are so many nerves in play! The ceremony was lovely – everything that we wanted, and more. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tara to other couples, as she was the perfect addition to our wedding.”

“Tara performed our wedding blessing (as we got legally married in the registry office) at Pennard House in Somerset. From our first conversation with Tara, we instantly loved her and knew she would be perfect to perform our wedding. We organised it in only a few weeks (due to COVID rearrangements) but Tara still managed to find the time to get to know us individually and as a couple. She clearly spent a lot of time writing our ceremony which was more beautiful that we could’ve imagined.

On the day, Tara was professional but still warm, making us both feel at ease. She delivered the ceremony beautifully and our guests commented on how lovely it was. We would highly recommend Tara as your celebrant!”
