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…”

I’m waiting for your call…

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…

Joe & Charlotte – September 2023 – After the ceremony, time to grab a photo with the happy couple!


“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.”

James & Annie – April 2023 – Here they are ‘Jumping the Broom’ straight after their ceremony!


“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.”

Jade & Josie – July 2022 – That first kiss is always super special!


“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!!”
