michelle and jamies wedding

Michelle & Jamie

Julie was the celebrant for our blessing back in July. We loved being able to personalise the ceremony to suit our personalities, everything was stress free and having a young baby it really helped to have someone as organised as Julie guiding us through the process.

Paul & Paul

Julie and Emily were perfect for our wedding day. They are both extremely friendly and professional and met us at various times during the chaotic wedding plans to find out what we wanted for the day. They made the whole process so stress free by explaining what would happen during the ceremony, tailoring it to suit our needs.
On the big day, Paul and I managed to leave all the button holes at home so we rushed back to get them! We were at least 20 minutes late because of this, but fortunately Julie and Emily were there to calm our nerves! They didn’t rush the paperwork before the service and reassured us our guests were still in the room waiting patiently!
During the organising of the wedding, they offered to play background music during the service which I hadn’t thought about until then. This prompted me to do my own playlist on a cd which I gave them in advance which was played at specific parts of the service. Emily was brilliant with the timings for each song!
It was a real privilege having them do our service. Everyone said how lucky we were having them and they really helped us have the perfect day. I would easily recommend them to any couple who are planning a wedding.

salisbury funeral

Lynne Robertson

When our son passed we wanted to give him a funeral to fit with his character, he was 25 and lived life on the edge and knew it would have to be something special, which is when we contacted Emily and Julie.
We had so many of his friends wanting to say something but knew they wouldn’t be able to on the day, this is where Emily and Julie were invaluable, they gave people who were desperate to say something a voice. They wrote down the words that were so hard to say and gave them to Emily and Julie, they became their voices on such an important day for them to be heard. It made such a difference to hear the words and poems that wanted to be heard,and although a extremely sad day it was also beautiful because of everything that got said. We cannot speak highly enough of this invaluable service these ladies provide,it is total what you want and they deliver it at such a time when just doing the normal things is almost impossible. Thank you both for letting Tom fly high.

sven and marcias wedding

Sven & Marcia

All hail Julie Lane and Bespoke Ceremonies. Having decided to surprise Marcia, my partner of 25 years, Julie’s help and patience helped me arrange our wedding ceremony in three days! We talked it over on the morning of Tuesday 20th December last year, I said what I wanted & Julie told me what I needed to do. Wednesday 21st, I did what I was told – organised cake, 4 children, guest list, fizz, wrote some words – Julie ran through what would happen on the day – who would say what, in what order & bought some flowers just in case I forgot.Thursday 22nd 2:30pm at the Cafe on Park in Salisbury, guests arrived out of the blue, Julie calmed Marcia down when she finally twigged what was going on then calmly conducted a flawless ceremony, the truly perfect day day which I could not have put together without her.

Charlotte & Steve

My now husband and I were lucky enough to have the wonderful Emily marry us. At one of the most fantastic moments of our lives we were guided through what can be a nerve racking time by Emily. She was also the only sensible soul with a tissue for the happy tears! We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely person to marry us! Xxx

sam-and-john

Sam & John

Choosing Emily as our celebrant was one of the best decisions we made whilst planning our wedding. From giving our notice, planning the ceremony right through to the big day, Emily was professional, warm and supportive. Having conducted ceremonies throughout Wiltshire, she was able to make recommendations about venues and suppliers (this insider knowledge proved invaluable!) and was on hand every step of the way to make sure that our wedding went exactly the way we wanted it to. Emily took the time to visit us at home in order to get a real feel for who we were and the sort of ceremony we were after; she also encouraged us to personalise our wedding with readings, music and our own unique promises and had plenty of suggestions to inspire us. As we got closer to the date, Emily kept in touch to make sure everything was in order and to allay any wedding-nerves – she was so organised, she even had spare (colour-coded) copies of all of the readings and our promises, just in case anyone forgot to bring their copies with them! She literally took all of the stress out of the day so we could both enjoy it as much as our guests. We highly recommend Emily as a celebrant, as she really does live up to that title in terms of making the day special and gave our wedding a personal touch – so many of our guests have remarked on the ceremony and how Emily made it the right balance of formal and fun.

rachel-gareth

Gareth & Rachel

My daughter Rachel and her husband Gareth were so lucky to have Julie officiate at their wedding. She bought such a sense of calm and gravitas to the day. Made it such a special occasion that we will long remember. It felt intensely personal and I cannot thank her enough for guiding us through the ceremony.

Lucy & Nicole

Lucy and I went to see our good friend Emily who performed our civil partnership nearly three years ago and she converted the civil partnership into a marriage – so we are now officially married!!
