Creating a wedding ceremony with couples is an honour and a joy. Placing your love story at the heart of the ceremony is the key to capturing and crafting the perfect day. With the freedom and flexibility to take the ceremony on its own path unique to the couple, is what makes a celebrant ceremony memorable and magical. Each element that can be used, whether it is vows, poetry, pictures, stories, music, readings and rituals and of course innovative and inspiring locations, can combine together to create a ceremony that captivates and evokes the true meaning of your own unique love story.

“It’s all in the storytelling…”

Please Note: For a marriage to be recognised in law in England & Wales, a legally-binding ceremony, commonly known as a ‘registration of a marriage’, MUST take place, normally at a Register Office. (The same applies to a civil partnership registration). The service can be very short and basic, and does not have to involve the exchange of rings or vows if you don’t want it to. Once completed, you then have the choice of when, where, how and you would like to hold your wedding ceremony which can include the exchanging of your vows, rings, music, stories, memories, rituals…basically anything and everything that reflects you as a couple and the journey you are on – the lovely, fun part – and that’s where I come in…


“We planned our Kent wedding remotely from Australia and came across Lou on the Kent Weddings Facebook group. She was competitively priced and wasn’t phased by planning the wedding online. We chatted a couple of times via computer screens including a 2 hour mega meeting as Lou got to know us and what we wanted from a ceremony. Lou was extremely friendly and easy to get along with as we spilled the story of how we got together. Lou prepared a draft of the ceremony and was happy with a little back and forth with amends. The ceremony itself was just perfect. As well as giving our story, we had a hand tying ceremony, sand ceremony, 2 readings and vows. The ceremony felt personal, substantial (ie not rushed), and was just the perfect way to cement our relationship in front of our friends and family. Lou’s delivery is perfect with the right amount of seriousness peppered with humour. I have no hesitations recommending her.”

“We had Lou as our celebrant for our wedding in December and it was the best decision we could have made. From her very first visit with us, to her superb delivery on the day, we found her to be caring, charismatic and above all else, genuine when telling our story to our friends and family. We aren’t the most romantic of couples, and, coupled with the pressure of organising the wedding itself, I suspect we would have been not the easiest of people to deal with. However, Lou took so much of this pressure away from us. She extracted the exact details she needed to tell our story, with a personable approach that led to many of my friends and family assuming that she knew us personally! This is a job you hope you only need to call upon once, so if you do, Lou at Kent Creative Ceremonies is a fantastic call and literally made our wedding.”

“Lou was the addition to our big day that we didn’t know we needed!  We had never wanted to do traditional vow exchange as seen in most weddings and knew from the get-go that we wanted something more personal, more us… Enter Lou!  We found Lou at a Wedding Fair in Whitstable and instantly fell for her warm personality and friendly smile!  Our time leading up to the big day was seamless thanks to Lou – as a wedding pro she was able to guide us with, not only the ceremony but her typical findings of weddings and how they run.  On the day, she helped us stay calm, and stay ‘us’, and we wouldn’t have anyone else there with us standing in front of all our friends and family!  Honestly, a real pleasure working with you Lou!”

“Lou was our celebrant at our wedding at The Lost Village of Dode on 1st April, and we couldn’t have been happier. Lou took time to understand our unique ‘story’ and her interest comes from a place of deep authenticity and a commitment to get the details right. Our ceremony was wonderful, a true reflection of ‘us’, and we have Lou to thank for this. Lou crafted a narrative around our own written vows that beautifully captured the essence of our relationship, sharing anecdotes that held the room, very much delivered in a way that was clearly heartfelt. I couldn’t recommend Lou more. Whatever your ceremony, you’re in very safe hands with Lou and Kent Creative Ceremonies.”

“We live in Thailand, so organising a wedding from abroad has certainly been interesting. Having landed back in England with 13 days until the big day, we decided just 7 days before the wedding that we wanted a celebrant and I gave my husband the challenge of finding one. What an incredible find when he found Lou. We only met Lou once before our wedding and she was warm, kind and professional. I honestly felt like we had known her for years. When she carried out the ceremony, Lou spoke with passion and elegance. She told our love story in her own special way and there were lots of happy smiles, laughter and tears. Lou has a natural ability to understand people and we connected with her instantly. We could not be happier with Lou as our celebrant and she made the ceremony so heartfelt and personal. We cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“Thank you very much Lou! You have been understanding, professional, and frankly, a delight from start to finish. Meeting us several times, a couple of months before our special day, you took the time to collect our and our families background stories, to, not just run through the vows, but to give a wonderful story to the congregation of our past meetings and journey so far. We could not have wished for a better celebrant to provide an exceptional ceremony. Your suggestions with other ideas to help our day go smoothly were very welcome, as was all your support. To anyone who wants their own bespoke wedding ceremony, we would recommend you every time. Should we ever require any of your other varied services, you will be our first choice. Again, thank you so much!”

David & Adie – May 2022


“We were lucky enough to find Lou, who was recommended to us by our wedding venue. The moment I spoke to Lou on the phone, I had a good feeling. She was so friendly, easy to talk to and couldn’t do enough for us. From taking the time to meet with us to get to know us, ensuring she wrote the perfect vows, to making contact with our suppliers to introduce herself, and even making a visit to the venue to familiarise herself. We were kept in the loop with absolutely everything she did, which we were really grateful for. We were sent a draft of our vows; any minor tweaks we made were adjusted right away and sent back. Lou was always at hand if we needed help with anything. Honestly cannot recommend her enough. If you’re thinking of having a fun wedding blessing, get yourself a Lou Fowkes!!”
