DO NOT PLAN YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY WITHOUT RUTH! Choosing Ruth to be our celebrant at our wedding 3 weeks ago was the best decision we ever made! She is simply the best! Planning our wedding from the states wasn’t easy but she made the process seamless! After countless FaceTime calls we finally met in person less than a week before the wedding and she immediately felt like family! She personalized our wedding ceremony beautifully with so many special moments that my husband and I will remember forever. Her words and her presence are truly magical! We will be forever grateful to have met such a beautiful person!

From start to finish, Ruth made the process of planning out our ceremony so easy and fun. So many of our guests remarked at how personal our ceremony was and how it felt like Ruth had known us for ages, and that really is a testament to her dedication in getting to know her couples and their love story. She was always available to talk through any ideas, concerns, and questions we had, and had many suggestions to give when we were unsure and needed guidance. We would 100% recommend Ruth if you are looking for a celebrant for any occasion if you are looking for that personal touch. Thank you so much, Ruth, for making our day so special!

Words cannot describe how amazing Ruth is and how thankful we are for being such a massive part of our day. From the moment we met her we knew she would make our day the most special and memorable experience. She has so much love, care and attention to detail that we felt completely relaxed and excited for everyone to witness our personal ceremony. Her ability to entwine both our lives, families and love into words was beautiful. All our guests loved the uniqueness and fun that came with a personalised ceremony and Ruth’s energy on the day (despite the heat!) was contagious! We could not have asked for anyone better, she is the best and we would encourage everyone to snap her up whilst you can! We will treasure her words and memories of our day forever. Thank you so much Ruth for making our day far more beautiful than we ever imagined. Love the Wests xx

An enormous thank you, Ruth, for making our Wedding Day so very special as our celebrant. From the moment we met you at Martels, flying off on your broomstick, we knew that we had met a very special lady. The time you spent getting to know us was invaluable and your humour and passion for making our day unique was overwhelming. Your ability to make us feel relaxed throughout, from our first meet up through to the day itself, was such a support, which every couple on their Wedding Day would wish for. We knew already how you would make our day wonderful and this was confirmed by all our friends and family commenting that “they’d never experienced a wedding service quite so extraordinary”; with not a dry eye in the gardens of Leez Priory!

What can you say about Ruth that countless others haven’t? As well as being utterly professional in every way you could feel how passionate she was about making our day as magical as could be. Her personality is infectious and everyone at our wedding waxed lyrical about how amazing she was. From our very first meeting to our wedding she guided us every step of the way and created the perfect script for our ceremony, she honestly made our day so special. Thank you Ruth!

Found Ruth by looking at her wonderful website. She is truly amazing. We found her so easy to work with & she was happy to deal with our quirky requests. The ceremony was fantastic & we could not have wanted more from her. All our guests were delighted by her & many thought we had been friends for a number of years. She made us all relax and conducted a wonderful ceremony with audience participation. We could not have asked for more. We would love to use her again if we had a chance

Myself and my husband hired Ruth to conduct our ceremony and we honestly could not have wished for a more attentive, professional, romantic day. During the run up to the ceremony Ruth was organising our day with our loved ones and friends as well as ourselves. She made the day so special suggesting sentimental aspects for our ceremony and guiding us through it. The amount of love and time Ruth puts into ceremonies should not be overlooked. It is no surprise that she has won awards and even had a TV appearance. I raise a glass to you Ruth (as we did on our ceremonial day) to many more ceremonies bringing people together and creating a legacy. Wholeheartedly thankyou. ❤️❤️

This has been the hardest review to write and not for bad reasons but simply because I’ve struggled to find the words to describe how phenomenal this lady is, as a celebrant but most importantly as a person. From the very first moment speaking to Ruth I felt at ease and an instant connection, there was no need to keep searching. Not only does Ruth completely tailor your ceremony to you as a couple but she is with you every step of the way from the moment you book her. She came to our final meeting with a venue and even gave vendors a kick up the A** when I wasn’t getting what I needed. She’s to hand for anything you need to make your day perfect, that’s all this wonderful lady wants is for every couples day to be perfect and it’s proven by her amazing work, her attentiveness, and how you instantly bond with her. It was very hard to say goodbye to Ruth on the day, I even cried. I didn’t want her to leave because without her our day never would’ve been so smooth, personal & fun, I wanted her to stay and celebrate because she too deserved a special toast. Ruth wasnt just my celebrant but my security blanket for the build up to the wedding and on the day. She felt like family and now she always will be. Please don’t search any further if you’re lucky enough to come across her page or website because you will never find a celebrant as wonderful as this lady and I have 70+ guests who will back me up on this. We love you Ruth, thank you!xxx

What can we say?! Ruth did the most incredible job with our day from being on hand to help at any given moment, to coordinating with the other vendors at the wedding to make sure the day went as smoothly as it could possibly be. Our day wouldn't have been what it was without Ruth, and we're so thankful we found her!

This is my hardest review to give out of all of my wedding suppliers, as I really have so many wonderful things to say about Ruth and the service she gives. From the very beginning she can’t not be more helpful and wholesome, I was initially drawn to Ruth’s buzzy magnetic energy, and really beautiful speaking voice and way with words (as previewed in her instagram) the additional help and support she delivered was such a pleasant surprise, and I think she offered the most additional support out of all of my suppliers. All of our friends and family have said that our ceremony was absolutely magical, one family member said Ruth was perfect and she was like and extension of me and my Husband. The unique touches she adds to a ceremony are top notch. I hold a very special place in my heart for this lady now and can not recommend her enough to any couple looking for a celebrant!!! Thankyou Ruth from the bottom of our hearts for conducting our whimsical woodland fairytale ceremony- you really were the cherry on the cake
