“Tara, we can’t thank you enough for being our Celebrant on the big day!

Not only are you a genuinely lovely person, but having you conduct our ceremony felt like a perfect fit and we were so happy we found you! 

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 our lovely card and gift! Such a special touch!”

“Tara, you are truly amazing. You stepped in last minute to write and deliver our wedding vow renewal ceremony. You had four days to turn this around. Despite this short time, the day you gave us was just magical. Everybody commented on how beautiful the service was and how it captured our story.

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.”

“We had already been married legally, but wanted a ceremony for our wedding celebration a year later. We didn’t have a clue on how to do this, so we were delighted when we found Tara.

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 was absolutely fabulous from the moment we made contact with her. We spoke on the phone and nothing was too much trouble for our ceremony. 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!”

“Tara was absolutely brilliant at communicating with us throughout the entire build up, and made sure she took the time to get to know us as a couple when planning our ceremony.

On the day, she made our service feel really special and personal, and her words reflected our relationship so well. Everyone really enjoyed it!

We are so glad we asked Tara to be our celebrant, and would definitely recommend her to others.”

“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!”

“It was an absolute pleasure to work with the lovely Tara! It is clear to see how much preparation goes into the ceremony and the friendship she forms with the couple prior to the big day. It would be wonderful to see Tara back at Pennard House again soon!”
