I create bespoke ceremonies for the couple who knows they want something more. You'll have a fully personalised wedding ceremony you deserve!


Why choose a Celebrant?

You'll want something other than the normal ceremony offered by the registration service! You'll want a more unique ceremony. You'll want your ceremony to be a celebration of you both as a couple. On your special day, you don't want a wedding ceremony that's ‘ordinary’ and ‘just like everyone else’s’. You have choices! The choice to have personal vows and no restrictions on content whatsoever! That's the beauty of having a celebrant who will spend time with you and give you the wedding ceremony you know you've always wanted!

Is a Celebrant expensive?

If you choose to have a registrar come to your licensed venue, a celebrant's fee will be very similar - but you'll receive a much more unique, personalised ceremony built by them with time and care. You'll also get to know your celebrant well before your big day so you will be married by a trusted friend on the day - not a stranger. The celebrant will also advise you on all of the elements that you can have to make your day unique and magical, and be there on your wedding day to make sure your ceremony goes without a hitch - truly a personalised service.

Does a Celebrant provide a legal ceremony?

In England at the moment you will have to make sure your marriage is legalised by a registrar. This can be done at your local registry office at any time before or after your wedding day. Just you and two witnesses can sign the register and say your legal vows without fuss - this costs £46 (Jan 24). This frees you up to do anything and say anything as part of your wedding ceremony - no restrictions on time or place or what you can have as part of your ceremony. It's what so many couples want for their big day now - control of their ceremony and a ceremony that gets their day off to a great start with everyone leaving it on a happy high! It will look and feel exactly as you want it to. Magical.

How do we go about booking you?

Visit my website at www.susanmcgregorcelebrant.co.uk/contact/ and book a discovery call with me. We'll go over all of your ideas and chat about what I can offer you - with absolutely no obligation! Then you can decide if I'm the best 'fit' for you and we can begin the process. You are in control at every stage. It would be lovely to meet you and work with you to create your wonderful ceremony!

When should we book our Celebrant?

Unlike registrars, Celebrants tend to have only one wedding a day looking after that couple giving them a fabulous service for their all important ceremony. Registrars may have 5 or more weddings to officiate on that day so timings are very important to them - celebrants are less rushed on the day and can give you lots more time. It does mean, however, that Celebrants have fewer spaces to offer you - especially in the busy wedding season so, if you have a favourite Celebrant, it's best to book them early to avoid disappointment. If you are booking out of season or on a day mid-week, you might find your celebrant still has availability - so ask as soon as you can and get your precious date booked in soon!


We knew from our first planning meeting with Susan that we’d made the right choice. We were asked to talk through what we wanted for our wedding day and she managed to accommodate everything and more. Her knowledge and enthusiasm around creating our ceremony was wonderful, enhanced by her amazing storytelling ability. Susan’s attention to detail enabled us to relax, allowing us to enjoy our day as she visited our venue beforehand and took control of the day’s proceedings. Her delivery on the day was perfect as she managed to balance the significance of the commitment we were making to each other, with plenty of humour ensuring our friends and family were made to feel part of the celebration. We would highly recommend Susan for any occasion and can’t thank her enough.

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you so much Susan for making our wedding ceremony so special. We couldn’t recommend more for future couples to book you Susan. From the beginning of our planning process right through to our big day you could not have made us feel more at ease and the planning experience more enjoyable. You perfectly created our ceremony script to ensure it was personable to us and captured the most special details of our life together, which was of high importance to us. And you completely went above an beyond in helping on our day, something we will forever be so grateful for! You’re a very talented lady Susan, in writing and speaking, and we feel so lucky to have found you for our big day and will continue to share your name so others are as fortunate as ourselves. Lots of love,

Mr and Mrs Eley
