Denise Herbert Celebrant

I am a warm, caring person and I would consider it a real honour to be involved in your special day!

Whether that day is the start of a new life with the love of your life or whether it is to celebrate the life of a much-loved someone that you have had to farewell.

I'd love to be involved in helping you to create a ceremony that will be unique and personal to you. To make you and your guests laugh, smile or cry. But, most of all, I want to help shape your day into one to remember. Together we can ensure that your important milestones are celebrated in such a way that they will leave a lasting memory - for all the right reasons!

I'm a romantic by nature and that’s why it’s such a thrill for me to participate in, and contribute to, something as wonderful and as special as your marriage ceremony. I'm also compassionate and empathetic, so when it comes to the sad occasions, I can walk through those with you as well.
