How I Became a Marriage Celebrant

My journey to becoming a marriage celebrant starts back in 2018. First, let me introduce myself, my name is Lisa Kendell, and I’m an ex-teacher for additional needs children. I loved my work but I needed to change and re-evaluate my life and so my story and adventure began.

The Start of my Amazing Celebrant Journey Begins

After a conversation with my Uncle who stated “I’m going to become a celebrant” I dove deeper into what a celebrant is and does. This I knew was to become my new vocation in life, naturally, I’m a fun-loving person.

Training to become an independent celebrant became a formality and the right thing to do. So in 2019, my journey began and here I am today and loving every day of my new life vocation.

Creating an Unforgettable Experience as a Marriage Celebrant

As a marriage celebrant, I play a pivotal role in conducting wedding ceremonies, overseeing the legal aspects, and ensuring that the ceremony reflects the couple’s wishes, beliefs, and values.

Unlike traditional religious or civil ceremonies, a marriage celebrant allows couples to infuse their ceremony with their personal touch and create a truly meaningful experience.

I work closely with the couple, listening to their vision, guiding them through the legal requirements, and crafting a ceremony that beautifully reflects their love story.

My Expertise as a Marriage Celebrant for your Wedding

One of the key strengths of being a UK-trained celebrant is my ability to create bespoke ceremonies that cater to a diverse range of couples and cultural backgrounds. I have a deep understanding of different traditions, customs, and rituals, enabling me to incorporate elements from various cultures seamlessly.

Whether a couple desires a traditional ceremony, a modern twist, or a fusion of different cultural practices. My role as a celebrant and my expertise can curate a ceremony at wedding venues that truly reflects the couple’s identities and values.

Marriage Celebrants Make Ceremonies More Fun

If you are looking for a way to make your wedding ceremony more fun, than a civil ceremony. Marriage celebrants are a great option. Celebrants help you create a wedding day that is truly unique to you and your partner. Ceremonies are a special occasion and it’s a civil celebrants job to make sure that your special day is memorable and enjoyable for everyone involved

  • I will incorporate personal stories and anecdotes about the couples into the ceremony script.
  • The humour I can use works perfectly to lighten the mood and keep the audience engaged at the wedding venue and reception
  • I aim to create a ceremony for a wedding for the bride & groom that is both personal and meaningful. whilst also being fun and entertaining

Is a Celebrant Wedding More Personal & Fun than a Registrar Wedding?

Without a doubt, celebrant weddings offer more flexibility and personalization options. Add to this the ability to choose unique locations. A celebrant wedding allows for a deeper emotional connection between the couple and their guests.

Registrar weddings, on the other hand, are often simpler in terms of legal requirements and follow a standardized format. The choice between the two depends on your preferences, priorities, and the vision you have for your wedding day.

A wedding is your special day and which kind of service couples opt for is their personal choice. If I could do it all again, on a personal note it would be a celebrant wedding all the way!


Can you Perform the Renewal of Vows Service?

Yes!, as a celebrant I can conduct a vow renewals service. Celebrants are professional officiants trained to conduct ceremonies, which include renewing vows at a venue. This a non-legally binding event where a married couple reaffirms their commitment to each other.

Can you legally issue a marriage certificate, the same as a registrar?

There are no legal requirements for a wedding ceremony with a celebrant. However, you will need to have your legal marriage and legal wedding vows at a registry office. You can book a legally binding wedding ceremony at your local registrars, before or after your own personalised celebrant wedding service, the choice is yours.

What other celebratory events can celebrants perform?

As a trained civil celebrant, I can perform not only weddings and civil partnerships but also events such as baby naming, pet blessings and celebration of life ceremonies.
