Hello, my name is Tim

I am a Traditional Celebrant, and I would be delighted to work along with you as we co-create something amazing. My promise to you is to be open minded and supportive, and to help create a bespoke ceremony that suits your personalities, styles your heritage and beliefs.

I have never done the same ceremony twice! I will guide you through the process so that every word, every moment, every smile and your vows to each other, will come directly from your love for each other and your hearts.

I love my job as a celebrant and am passionate about creating beautiful ceremonies that enable you to have the ceremony you want and for your guests to walk away and talk about your ceremony for years to come.

Contact me now to see if we can work together.

    Wedding Ceremonies

    A marriage celebrant is the person who does most of the talking at your Wedding Ceremony. They are also in charge of the laughs, of telling your love story and also describing the importance of the meaning of that moment in time as you pass through to become husband and wife. I’m the celebrant you hire if the marriage ceremony is the best and most important part of your wedding! (other than each other!)

    Renewal of your Vows

    Anyone like you who has gone through a Wedding Ceremony, a commitment ceremony, a civil ceremony or has exchanged vows can decide to renew their vows. Any couple can hold a renewal of vows ceremony anywhere, and at any point in their marriage. There are no legalities involved in renewing your vows. It is a symbolic ceremony designed to celebrate and re-confirm your love.

  • Funeral Ceremony

    Planning a funeral for someone close to you is a difficult task to have to undertake, especially as this is a distressing time for you and your family. Working closely with you and your funeral director, I can help guide and advise you and your family during this sad period. You will also have every opportunity to discuss all aspects of the ceremony throughout this process. The many options available to you are yours to choose, and you may wish to include any music, poetry or readings that you feel are appropriate.

  • Regine & John - Wedding Ceremony - Pimhill Barn

    Definitely 100% recommend Tim if you're looking for a celebrant. We contacted him after the priest who was meant to marry us cancelled less than 2 weeks before our wedding. Tim has gone above and beyond to accommodate us in such a short notice. He has conducted our ceremony very well and adapted it to exactly how we wanted our ceremony to be. 

  • Kevin & Amy - Wedding Ceremony - Thornbury Castle

    Tim was absolutely amazing! He wrote a stunning and heartfelt ceremony for us, also created a very original sand ceremony that was beautiful! Myself and my wife had searched all of the UK for a celebrant and went through at least 50 celebrants to find Tim. He made himself available at any time for any questions we had and Skype conversations between the UK and the USA. 

  • Rachel & Khalid - Wedding Ceremony - Cefn Tilla Court, Wales

    We couldn’t be happier with the work Tim did for our wedding ceremony. We have received so many compliments for such a beautiful ceremony that Tim created for us, and many guests thought that Tim was a family friend because of how personal it was. Tim drafted a beautiful script with our love story and added elements of humour which had our guests laughing and crying. Tim was easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble with little edits I had for the ceremony script. I would highly recommend.
