KIND WORDS FROM MY PAST COUPLES
ROISIN & OLLIE
Where do I even start with Hazel! I feel emotional even writing this as it was just the most magical day. Hazel started off the magic when the guests arrived, and although I wasn't there to witness this, all the guests came up to me and said how amazing she was and that she was just so 'ME'!
She directed and coordinated all of the guests, but did it with flare and sparkle, which is a must! She also came over to me before I walked down the aisle to make sure I was all set, which I absolutely loved.
We couldn't meet in person before the wedding, due to the distance between us and also because I was back and forth to the Isle of Man, but that didn't stop Hazel from getting to know Ollie and I. We had zoom calls, questionnaires etc, so that Hazel could create the perfect ceremony for us. Which she absolutely nailed! Hazel also helped us both with our vows.
My friend who attended the wedding works on weddings and has done over 500, and she said she had never seen anything like this before, she said she could feel the love and emotion in the room and said it was the most genuine wedding she had ever been to.
Most of the guests had never heard of a celebrant, they are used to religious ceremonies or a registrar, however, they were blown away by Hazel and how the ceremony was just all about mine and Ollie's story, which for me is what a wedding should be all about.
We decided to do the legal ceremony the day before, which was the best decision we made. It meant we had a small intimate ceremony, with just our parents and siblings there and a little meal afterwards, and then we had Hazel the day after for the BIG day!
I didn't want to have to sign the registrar or slow the pace down of the ceremony, as we wanted to stay in the moment, and it was perfect.
As soon as Hazel finished the ceremony, we all celebrated straight away and didn't have to stop to sign the paperwork.
I can't than you enough Hazel for making our day sp special! It was more than we expected, and for anyone who is debating choosing a celebrant, DO IT!
I can't stress it enough! I'm so glad we chose you <3 You're the best!
KATIE & ROB
We honestly couldn’t have had a better service from Hazel with managing our arrangements as the celebrant for our wedding day. We had booked her a few years ago, and when dates changed Hazel was very accommodating and moved our dates with no problem. Communications were always quick and clear and we felt very at ease for the big day.
Hazel was just brilliant to work with from start to finish, we weren’t really sure what a celebrant was for when we first found out about them, but as soon as we did, we knew that was the right choice for us.
The ceremony was so unique, we’ve had such amazing comments from our friends and family about how it was the most enjoyable ceremony they’ve ever had, because from start to finish it was all about us, our journey, our story and it made it so perfect. We also chose to write our own vows, which was quite a scary prospect, but Hazel helped us through it, gave us hints and tips and lots of support, which really helped.
On the day, she was so calm and prepared, she made us both feel at ease immediately and we just smiled and laughed the whole way through, of course with a few happy tears too! (I’ve even got tears in my eyes writing this now!). It was just so perfect.
I would 100% recommend Hazel to anyone who wants a personal touch to their wedding ceremony, especially if your favourite colour is Rainbow!
Thanks Hazel, we will cherish the memories forever!
Love Rob & Katie Dyson xx
RACH & TAL
Hazel was brilliant, she’s so good at creating a fun but sentimental service that’s personal to you. We’re not soppy people and were both quite anxious about standing in front of everyone being all lovey dovey, but Hazel made it so funny and relaxed that we felt totally comfortable.
We thought the ceremony was something we’d just have to ‘get through’ and then we could relax, but thanks to Hazel it was genuinely enjoyable and the ceremony became one of our highlights of the day (which is no understatement considering our wedding also involved meeting an elephant)!
Although it was fun, it was still very sweet and full of personal touches, and managed to make our guests laugh and cry. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how good she was, how they’d never been to a wedding like it.
On top of that, Hazel was also a great help with the practicalities like helping set up and get people in the right place, announcing us in, getting passers-by to move out of the way for photos (lol).
Thank you Hazel for making our day so special. I would recommend her wholeheartedly
HOLLY & ANTHONY
True to her name, Hazel brought so much joy and colour to our wedding! The whole process was personal and tailored specifically to our story from start to finish.
Hazel delivered the most beautiful rendition of our love story to our guests, who all commented on how perfect the service was and how she made it about us.
The way Hazel delivered and recounted the story of how we met and the celebration of our two lives coming together was delivered with a sense of charm and a breath of fresh air from 'the usual' ceremonies.
She made both of us cry several times when we read over our ceremony beforehand and encouraged and helped us to write our own personal vows.
We can never thank Hazel enough for being a massive part of our wedding journey and being the favourite part of our day!

JEN & MARK
What can we say other than the biggest thank you!! Hazel was amazing from start to finish.
We knew we didn’t want a boring conventional ceremony and Hazel wrote us a service that was personal to us and our story.
She communicated with us every step of the way and ensured that we had the perfect day. She helped to coordinate the arrival of guests and made sure everything was in place for my arrival.
The feedback we got from our guests was amazing, I don’t think many of them had experienced a ceremony quite like ours.
We are so glad we found Hazel she made our wedding everything we wanted it to be and more.
Do not hesitate to book this amazing lady to officiate for you, she is the absolute best!
KIRSTIE & CHRIS
Hazel is truly one of a kind. Not only is she a ball of contagious rainbow energy and sunshine, she is insanely talented at what she does!
She simply couldn’t have captured us anymore perfectly if she tried. We cried, we laughed and every single one of our guests said it was the BEST ceremony they’d ever been too.
It was a long time coming but she made it so worth the wait.
We cannot thank Hazel enough for creating a ceremony so utterly unique that we will truly treasure forever.
LAURA & MIKE
We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant to officiate our wedding in September.
Full of joy and radiating happiness, Hazel created and delivered such a beautiful ceremony, helping us pick out the best moments from our story to share with our guests.
Prior to the wedding day, Hazel took time to get to know us as a couple and incorporated all the ideas we wanted in our ceremony, the process was entirely stress-free.
On the day itself, our guests told us how wonderful and personal the ceremony was, with many of them saying it made them tear up!
Lots of our guests also thought Hazel was an existing friend, which is real testament to the relationship she built with us, and the warmth she performed our ceremony with.
Hazel is an amazing person and a wonderful celebrant and we would recommend her wholeheartedly for weddings or any other celebrations
LIV & TOM
Hazel is just exceptional - from our first meeting to discuss our wedding her enthusiasm and clear love for her job shone through. Also she just got us!
The decision to choose Hazel as a our celebrant was one of the easiest choices for the wedding.
The whole process was fun and easy - we loved filling out our quizzes and the ceremony Hazel wrote was beautiful and funny. I didn’t realise how many people were crying on the day until I saw the pictures but I definitely heard the laughter.
On top of all this amazing-ness, Hazel helped coordinate a rowdy bunch for pics ANNNNDDD took our gorgeous pup Daphne for some down time in a quiet part of the venue when she was clearly overwhelmed with the day. It was amazing not to worry about little Daph and just being able to enjoy our day!
She really goes the extra mile! We wouldn’t hesitate to book Hazel again and again!
So many of our guests commented on how great the ceremony was and how unique it was compared to other weddings they had been to.
Everyone loved hearing our story and how we had got to the point of marrying each other! If we could give 100 stars we would!! Thank you Hazel for being bloody awesome!!
cole & Chris
Hazel is just beyond AWESOME ❤️ We couldn’t have wished for more from a celebrant or our ceremony. It was so ‘us’ and so perfect. Lots of our guests assumed Hazel was one of our friends for how well she seemed to know us!
The whole process from start to finish was just brilliant.
Hazel was supportive, helpful and patient with us when our busy lives meant we were a bit slow on things! 🙈 Hazel gave us extra time of hers the day before the wedding and came down to the venue for a run-through which really put us at ease.
She was awesome on the day with helping with final set-up bits and making sure everyone was in the right place and all was perfect. We honestly cannot thank her enough.
The absolute BEST! ❤️❤️❤️
Laura & Ian
Honestly, the most amazing celebrant to do your wedding! Everyone loved how different our ceremony was over a boring traditional ceremony, and she had the crowd and us laughing! She is so easy-going and fun! Will 100% recommend her to everyone who needs a celebrant!
Sarah & Jon
Hazel is amazing! She brought the fun and laughter into our wedding ceremony. Hazel spent time getting to know us, created our bespoke ceremony and delivered it truly beautifully. So many of our guests have commented about how brilliant and different our ceremony was. Thank you so much Hazel!
Robyn & tom
We simply cannot thank Hazel enough for creating the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding day. Literally every single guest cried, laughed and said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to - my mum and grandad who both said they don’t cry cried their hearts out!! Throw a live singer in the mix and boom you’ve got the best ceremony ever 💕
I love how well we got to know Hazel before the day and that she stayed to enjoy drinks with my family and friends afterwards, it made us feel so relaxed right from the moment Hazel arrived on the morning.
Our favourite part was when each guest came up to the front to tie a silk ribbon around our hands as this meant we got to share a special moment with each guest right at the start of the wedding day. Having a celebrant was truly the best decision we could’ve made for our wedding as it made everything so much more personal and we loved getting all of our guests involved.
Thanks so much Hazel, you really are an absolute legend!
Adam & Rachel
Hazel is awesome and an absolute no brainer of a decision when planning your wedding day!! We keep promising this review but is seems strange to review someone we now consider to be our friend and go to dog chat person.
From our first zoom call we knew Hazel was the person we wanted to be there with us on our wedding day. We aren't the most outgoing of people ourselves but we loved Hazel's energy and having her guide us through our own love story in front of our friends and family was amazing. Everything couldn't have been easier and Hazel was always there to offer advice and suggestions and encouraged us to bring our beautiful Neko along for the day.
We only met up once before the wedding (mainly so she could have Neko cuddles) but with all the chatting online/emails/zoom etc beforehand it was the best feeling knowing exactly who was going to be there marrying us. It is clear Hazel is a wonderful person and a brilliant speaker but the words and story she wove from our utter rambles on her very good forms was what completely blew us and our guests away. We have never been to a ceremony like our own and although standing up there having your secret stories shared in front of everyone is daunting, for us it was exactly what our day was about and no one could have done a better job than Hazel.
Everyone loved the ceremony and most people learnt something new about us and our relationship during it. Hazel somehow managed to pick out all the most important little memories and moments in our life together so far and truly captured the essence of us as a couple in a way we could never do ourselves and it is our relationship! She is truly magic!
Our venue didn't have a marriage licence and we could not be more pleased about that now as we didn't really even know about celebrant led ceremonies until then but our ceremony with Hazel was the true start of our married life and we wouldn't have wanted to be waved off on that journey by anyone else. Hazel was so professional throughout and makes the whole process as easy as possible with the forms etc.
If you want your wedding day to be completely special, bespoke, loving and entertaining led by an amazing person then book Hazel!
We can never thank you enough Hazel for our wonderful ceremony and thanks for sticking around for the food and terrible family chat and jokes!

SALS & RUSS
Hazel undertook our ceremony last week and it was incredible!
She was there throughout all of the planning bouncing ideas back and forth until we finalised something amazing and unique.
We had such a great time during the whole thing and feel like we also made a friend along the way!
KATIE & ADAM
We cannot thank Hazel enough for creating the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding day! From the moment we had our first zoom call we knew Hazel was special and just what we wanted!
She told the story of me & Adam just perfectly and we were in tears reading through our first draft! Guests were coming up to us all day telling us how much they loved our ceremony and they had never seen anything like it before and if they were to do their weddings again they would do the exact same.
Hazel isn’t just an officiant in our wedding, she’s a life long friend who we are so grateful to have met and made our wedding day so memorable and special.
I have one thing to say and if you are thinking of booking Hazel…. DO IT! I promise this is something you will not regret!
Thank you so much Hazel for everything you have done for us, you truly are amazing 💗
All our love Mr & Mrs Wormwell
KELLY & TOM
Hazel was absolutely amazing all of the way through the planning process, not just on the day of. No matter how many times I changed my mind, or how many whacky ideas I came up with Hazel didn't care, she just gave me further ideas and suppliers who could help me make that happen.
With regards to the ceremony, it was so personal to me and Tom and all of our guests went through an emotional roller-coaster of tears and laughter. She crafted a beautiful ceremony that really took everyone on our journey with us.
And it made the perfect opening to the next chapter of our life together. Thank you!
JESSIKA & ADAM
We didn’t know what we wanted for our ceremony…until we met Hazel! She was everything we didn’t even know we needed! She was absolutely the best part of our wedding and the ceremony is the part that everyone commented on the most.
Hazel’s ceremony was the perfect mix of romantic without being cheesy, background info without being boring and funny without mocking. We loved the process of answering the questions in the quizzes and seeing how Hazel worked her magic on it to create a beautiful ceremony script for the day.
Going into this, we had no clue how a ceremony would work when we’re already married, but Hazel knew exactly what we needed, even though we didn’t! It was absolutely perfect.
Not a dry eye in the room!
HANA & TOM
Hazel you're a bombshell.
We asked you for weird, we challenged you intensely and you delivered. Our ceremony was funny, personal and emotional - just like us.
Hazel helped Tom (not a man of words!) to write his vows and to express to me things he loves about me, and she helped both of us to explain to everyone a little about our mad world.
Our wedding was "the best wedding we've ever been to!" for so many of our friends and family, and the ceremony is a massive part of that.
Plus, she's a cutiepie and does a little gift for you afterwards with your ceremony/vows booklets inside.
