Beach Elopement

As soon as we got in touch with Monika to begin plans on our wedding she made us feel totally relaxed and at ease, which is exactly the feel we wanted for our very intimate beach wedding. She was always quick to respond to any of our queries and also help us with ideas to include on the day. The wedding itself was conducted beautifully with a poem that Monika had chosen which suited our dogs perfectly, it felt like it could’ve been written about them! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Monika as a celebrant. Thank you for making our day so great!

North Coast 500 Vow Renewal

Thanks so much for our vow renewal during our Scotland holiday, and meeting us at the most romantic stop. We loved our sweet sunset ceremony and we can't thank you enough for bearing with us through the spell of challenging weather! You opened our eyes to beautiful rituals and reminded us what is so special about our relationship

Beach Wedding

We were so lucky to find Monika. When we first emailed her about the possibility of being our celebrant, we were pretty clueless about the whole business. Monika was fantastic and, over many emails and Zoom calls, guided us through the process of creating our perfect day. She thought of everything and covered many things we had never even considered. After agreeing on the general outline of the ceremony and sending Monika the readings, our story and other information she requested, Monika began crafting the ceremony. Experiencing it for the first time on the day was fantastic. Monika had taken all the random snippets of our life and woven them into a story linking everything together. The ceremony surpassed all our expectations and was truly perfect.

Woodland Wedding

Our wedding ceremony was very small and intimate and it was lovely to have a Celebrant we connected so well with. We wanted a simple, relaxed ceremony in a woodland that means a lot to our family and Monika really helped to create the right atmosphere for that.

Wedding at the couple's converted church home

We had simply the best day. Our guests absolutely loved the ceremony. The service was incredibly personal and special. The way you put the whole thing together was just perfect. I loved the fact that our friends and children were at the heart of our ceremony and that the church was taken back to its roots. The feedback from our guests had been incredible.

Interfaith Church Wedding

Weddings are so often a blur, but the ceremony will always be remembered as a tranquil and purposeful moment for us. Monika helped integrate everyone in attendance (and those who couldn't make it) and her words held deep meaning for us on an individual level. Monika exceeded every expectation and helped make our day the best it could be.

Coastal Wedding

It is quite difficult to put into words just how humbled and grateful we feel toward Monika for being our celebrant as we took our first steps into marriage. Finding the right person to guide and support you into this commitment is no easy feat, and we couldn’t have hoped for a more open, kind, gracious or patient celebrant. Monika helped us create our dream ceremony through suggesting different approaches we could take and then allowing us to shape the ceremony in a way that was true and honest to us as a couple. She encouraged us to be ourselves, which allowed us to have a playful, loving and raw wedding ceremony, and to include and embed those who were and weren’t present on the day into every key moment of the celebration. It was a true gift she gave us, and we could not recommend her more highly for couples hoping to begin their journey together in an authentic, meaningful and loving way.

Beach Wedding

When we started our search for a celebrant we were delighted to hear that Monika, who has such a close connection to our chosen ceremony location, was willing to marry us. From our first meeting we knew that Monika was the one we wanted to conduct our ceremony. She has a fantastic, personable manner and made every step of the way effortless and enjoyable. The guidance, support and advice we received from her was invaluable. Thank you Monika for making our wedding day so special and one we will never forget.

Coastal Wedding

We found out Monika lived nearby and lots of good feedback from other couples as we live so far apart we had to email. She gave us good advice for our big day. Monika has a lovely manner and nothing was too much bother. We made our vows to suit our Happy life together and Monika was great and kept a wee secret I slipped in to make my now husband laugh. We met up with her and were welcomed into her home. She kept in touch with us checking everything was OK. On the day it was perfect. The weather was a bit wild but love conquers all. We laughed and cried during the ceremony. It was written out perfectly to reflect our love for each other

Beach Elopement

From the very first email, Monika gave us all the information we needed and more, nothing was too much trouble, she provided us with our witnesses, she was effortlessly patient and guided us to figure out how we wanted our perfect moment to be. She made it clear to both of us, that the ceremony would be our way and her generosity and kindness were made clear from the very beginning. Monika was perfect for us from start to finish and gave us our perfect day in our perfect chosen place.

Committment Ceremony at home

Celebrating the first weekend in our new home with a committment ceremony was magic! We can't thank you enough for creating this special moment with us and coming over to the Isle of Lewis just for the day.

Micro-Wedding

Monika has been a pillar of calm, knowledge, and support. There have been many back and forth emails about running orders, vows, rituals, and the ceremony, things we'd never have considered ourselves, but with Monika's help came together beautifully in a day that will go down in the story of our relationship, and now marriage, as perfect. The ceremony was beautiful, personable, and tailor-made for us as a couple. It fit like a glove - just like Monika's presence in our very small company did. We wouldn't have had it any other way.

Summer Beach Wedding

As our ceremony was planned during COVID we were unable to meet Monika before the wedding day but we felt so comfortable with her and felt as if we’d known her along time. She paid so much attention to the details in our story and that was the most special part of the ceremony for us. We don’t really talk often about our feelings to others but on the day we got to share our story with our families and close friends, in the most amazing setting and in the perfect words. We couldn't have asked for a better day and we truly believe Monika played a key role in helping us achieve all we wanted for our ceremony

A winter beach wedding

All we knew was where we would like to marry and that we wanted to keep it simple, just the two of us. Monika took us by the hand to navigate the many options to make our ceremony both personal and intimate. By detailing our backgrounds, values, beliefs and love of both places and one another, Monika got to really know us. The poems and readings we selected allowed us to truly express how much Sarah and I mean to each other. Monikas considered and thoughtful words skilfully knitted the whole ceremony together.

Village Hall Wedding

It was heartening to realise Monika shared our convictions – that a marriage ceremony is a joyous celebration of love rather than a formal sealing of a contract. Monika helped make our special day one to remember for all those present. Everyone commented on how much they loved the tone and nature of the service .

Thanks so much for coming out to the base of Suilven to make our dream come true before heading up to the top. Using those ropes that helped us climb mountains all over the world for our handfasting was really special!

Monika was incredibly professional and organised throughout the entire planning process. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and understand our vision for the ceremony. She also provided us with helpful resources and suggestions to make our handfasting ceremony unique and personal.

We cannot recommend Monika enough... she took so much time and cared so much and made our ceremony very special.

In addition to sharing their testimonials many couples have kindly agreed for me to write about their wedding story in more detail and you can find those by clicking on the link below. Some ceremonies are very private events though and I always respect if couples prefer to not share images or details about their ceremony in public.
