Online dating – Plenty of Fish.

The Wedding Venue

The Willows at the Woodmans.

Why we chose to have a celebrant wedding ceremony

We attended a friend’s wedding a couple of years ago who used a celebrant. We found the ceremony much more personal, engaging, and inclusive.

Ideas about what our ceremony could have looked like

We had an idea from attending other weddings but we didn’t realise how many options there were to add custom bits into the ceremony and really make it your own personal moment.

The best part of the ceremony for us

Our vows!  They were so personal and just the right balance for us between deep and meaningful and then adding a little fun and humour. The ceremony script really set the tone for these well.

What our guests said about our wedding ceremony/day

Our guests said our ceremony was very us and that it felt super special and intimate. It was emotional!

Some of our fav wedding suppliers and why we chose them

All our suppliers were incredible –

  • Make up by Usrzula – Super friendly and really took the time to get my make up exactly as I wanted it. All the bridesmaids loved theirs too!
  • Towers Flowers – Made the most beautiful colourful bouquet and made the whole experience of choosing flowers easy. You can put your trust in her as her passion for flowers shines through and is a bit infectious.

  • Nigel Playle Photos
  • Bridal Hair North East

  • Mr Jones Cakes
  • Victorias Paperie

Three words that sum up our ‘Love Jo’ experience!

Personal, Emotional & FUN!

There wasnt a question for this Jo but I just wanted to add a little bit from us…

“You are so warm, friendly, and non-judgemental which meant we felt we could really open up to you to create the most personal and unique ceremony which just encapsulated who we are as a couple perfectly. You handled my emotions on the day like an absolute pro and I’m really not sure I would’ve been able to finish my vows without you knowing to give me a second to compose myself and then rallying me with a clap from all of our guests. Couldn’t recommend you enough!!” (this touched my heart Kirsty thank you so much sweets) x
