Nikki Billingham Promises made, vows declared, an adventure to live,

 a life to share

Your Special Day!

I specialise in fun filled modern award winning wedding ceremonies. My ceremonies are a modern more relaxed approach to a traditional wedding ceremony. By keeping all the important elements but making them much more unique and highly personalised.

I love LOVE and, I love to celebrate it!

The benefit of having a wedding celebrant means you are not restricted to content, locations or timeframes.

Celebrant weddings are unique and the ceremony will be completely bespoke to you.

Wherever you would like to say your “I do’s” we can make that happen. It does not have to be at a licenced wedding venue, it can be in any beautiful or meaningful location of your choosing.

Is there somewhere really special to you both or somewhere really beautiful where you would love to get married? Then let's do it!

We will work together to bring your dreams and visions to life. With many laughs and happy tears along the way!

I truly cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful Nikki!

She did a sterling job as our celebrant for our wedding celebration. Her words were so touching during the ceremony, that my husband (a man's man and never cries!) was struggling to hold back the tears as were the majority of our guests.

I really felt like I got to know Nikki in the lead up to our celebration and our guests were even asking if she was a family friend as she seemed so familiar with us!

Nikki even stayed after the ceremony to help arrange our guests for the group photos!!

Thank you Nikki for making the day absolutely magical!

If you would like a fun, laugh your socks off ceremony, or a discreet intimate ceremony; filled with heart warming moments, then I am the celebrant for you!

You can have a themed wedding or a particular styling for your day, a unique symbolic ceremony, a blending of two cultures; whatever it maybe, we will work together to make this happen.

Optionally you can include a ceremony enhancement like a unity candle ceremony, sand ceremony, ring warming, jumping the broom, cocktail/gin and tonic/ any food or drink ceremony you would like. There are so many different options available to make your ceremony unique to you!

We can discuss all the various options together and find one that truly matches your personalities.

Involving family members and friends and make it a fun joyous unique memorable day for everyone!

Together we will create a wedding ceremony like no other which will really show your characters!

Firstly, we need to get to know each other – I offer a no obligation initial meeting. This can be in person, over the phone or video call. This is where we find out exactly what you want to happen and what I can offer you. From there I will send over a booking form and contract. A 50% booking fee would be required to secure the date.

From there we will arrange another meeting where I get to find out all about your love story and your journey so far as a couple. Such an exciting time for us all!

I will then send a couples questionnaire and the remaining balance would need to be paid a minimum of 8 weeks before the ceremony.

I will write a draft ceremony, be available for as many follow up calls, help and guidance as you need.

You can choose to write your own vows include any poems/readings, music etc whatever it maybe together we can create your perfect day.

Thank you so much for Saturday. You were amazing and so many of our friends and family commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

They loved it. We loved it and we hope you did too.

We’ll send some pictures over when we get chance.

Thanks again it was hugely appreciated.

On the day- if any delays happen then there is no panic, no rush, no stress. I only ever accept one wedding per day so my time is fully yours. I will arrive at least an hour early and liaise with your venue/suppliers/planner/photographer etc and ensure everything is running as smoothly as possible! I will meet your family, friends and guests and help get everyone seated and where they should be.

Then you will have your amazing ceremony! There will be tears and laughter and it will be full of love and heart felt moments! I guarantee that your guests will be talking about your unique ceremony for months after!

Currently in the UK you will still need to book in for a Notice of Intent to marry with a registrar. This can be done prior or after your celebrant ceremony. I will give you full guidance for this, it is very simple just ensure you book a 2+2 basic ceremony where you take 2 witnesses with you. Most councils charge £40-60 pounds for this.

In some parts of the world including Scotland and Ireland this is not needed and we are hoping England will get up to speed soon!
