Silver Wedding Anniversary
We were in Edinburgh for our silver wedding anniversary and were looking for a celebrant to guide us through a small and very personal ceremony. Because we are from Germany, we searched the net and found out that there are a lot of celebrants in the city who specialise in wedding and wedding renewals. We were immediately very impressed by Gaynor's personal way of seeing us as a couple but also as individual personalities. Above all, Gaynor has a great sense for the right words and she knows how to weave in little stories and entertain everyone. Rests in the right places, perfect intonation, highly professional and yet spontaneous - that's how we were able to experience her work. From the first contact via video call to the completion of the photos, Gaynor was incredibly friendly and approachable. She responded to all our wishes and ideas, supplemented with her ideas and was a true inspiration for us.
Paul and I got married on the 8th of May this year. We couldn’t imagine having anyone else conducting our ceremony than Gay. From the day we booked her she was there for us any time we needed her to guide us, give advice and most importantly be a friend. We both suffer from anxiety but Gay deals with this so amazingly well. She is kind, friendly, laid back, professional but with a lovely sense of humour. She made our day so special and worked so hard on the run up to it, to make our ceremony magical. Our guests loved her too, everything she did all just tied in together she truly knows what she is doing. If like me you have a future husband/wife that likes to leave things to the last minute I can also confirm that she is super patient too. She is just an amazing lady and we couldn’t recommend her enough. Thank you Gay for all that you have done for us, we love you for it.
What a Day
What can we say, after 10 years we finally got what we wanted. Gaynor was amazing, her attention to detail was outstanding everything about the ceremony was just so perfect. Gaynor gave us exactly what we wanted her communication before the handfasting was spot on. I highly recommend doing a handfasting and choosing Gaynor as your celebrant. Thank you again from the bottom of our heart.
Brought Our Dream to Life
I could not possibly recommend Gay more! Gay was our celebrant for our wedding at the start of September 2023 and made it the most incredible day. We felt so comfortable and supported for the entire journey from engagement until and throughout the big day itself. Her positive energy, excellent humour and wholeheartedly caring nature set an incredibly personal vibe for our wedding which we and our guests completely loved. It was unique. Gay gave us so many options of how our day could unfold and what it could include and with ease, brought our dream to life. Gay, we will always be so grateful for being such a special part of our wedding. Thank you thank you thank you.
Our Dream Wedding
My now Hubby and I were looking to get married in Edinburgh. We met with Gaynor over a zoom meeting and hit it off wonderfully! She is so welcoming and kind. The ceremony was cheerful, intimate and oh so memorable. She was amazing and quite the trooper. It really seemed like she never slept with answering emails promptly with an 8 hour time difference between us. Between my now Husband’s sense of humor and my distaste of whiskey we had a lot of laughs and tears. Thank you for all the hard work you did!! Gaynor you are the best.
How does it all work?
