About me

I’m so happy you have taken the time to look at my website. Planning a wedding, renewal of vows, commitment or naming day ceremony is such an exciting time in your life. Let me tell you a little bit about myself!

My name is Ruth Salisbury-Higgs, and I am a professionally trained independent celebrant with an NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Naming and Couples (RFQ). This is the highest celebrant's qualification available in the UK. I am also a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants so, rest assured that if you entrust your ceremony to me, you are in very safe hands.

I just love meeting and working with people. My whole working life has involved helping or teaching people in some way or another. From customer service roles to working for many years as a successful driving instructor, I just get a buzz from interacting with people. My celebrant work gives me the chance to meet wonderful people from all walks of life and share in the most important milestone celebrations of their lives. I love to celebrate love, life, and happiness however it presents itself in your world. Together we can ensure that love always wins.

I have been married to my husband David for many years. We enjoy our garden and long walks, preferably along a stunning coastline. If there happens to be a pub at the end of the walk, then so much the better.

I am an enormously proud mum of two grown children. My son is happily married and living in Sydney Australia. We all enjoyed their fantastic, celebrant led marriage ceremony on the Gold Coast in October 2019. My daughter lives a little closer to home and I am honoured to have her working alongside me as a make-up artist. My immediate and extended family just fill my heart with joy. Some of my happiest times are when we all get together, and the laughter begins.

It would be my greatest pleasure to be part of your special day. Rest assured that I will work with you to ensure that you have a beautifully crafted ceremony delivered in a calm, professional, and fun-filled manner.
