We are Denise and Nicola, wedding celebrants based in Cornwall, and we set up Cornish Celebrants over 5 years ago after working for a combined total of over 25 years for Cornwall Registration Service conducting upward of 2500 wedding ceremonies!

We set up our business to allow couples getting married to have more choice using a wedding celebrant. Let us help you to create an authentic and unique ceremony which will ensure that your commitment to each other takes centre stage. Our ethos is to build a trusting relationship by collaborating fully with you, we love to chat over a cup of tea and a traditional Cornish scone –with jam and cream – either in person or “virtually”. We take your vision and ideas and craft them into a personalised and bespoke ceremony which can include ‘your story’ – how you met and your life together.

A wedding celebrant uses traditional elements of a wedding ceremony but we also love to put a bit of twist on them. Hand fasting, “tie the knot” or other rituals; we just love creating something joyful and meaningful that speaks directly to your hearts on this most special of days.

It is a joy for us to work with you to ensure that it is … Your Ceremony Your Way.

  • Denise and Nicola with the Cornish Celebrants are the perfect choice! They are so friendly and such a pleasure to work with from the planning stages to the ceremony and they have so many great ideas to make your ceremony personal and special. Planning the content of the ceremony was quite daunting at first but Nicola and Denise completely put us at ease, and were so great to work with given that we live 5,000 miles away in Hong Kong. They were simply wonderful on the day! They were so lovely and accommodating with me when I was sick and were just amazing to be around. The ceremony was more beautiful than we could have imagined and they included so many personal little details and touches. We loved that there were the Celtic elements in there with the blessing at the end and the fisherman's knot. We had so many people comment on what a lovely and personal ceremony it was. Pete and I want to say a massive thank you to you both for helping us to have the most perfect day. We are so happy that you could give us such a wonderful send off into married life, we will hold you in our hearts always.
  • We are so grateful we had Nicola conduct our ceremony in the grounds of Enys Gardens, in Penryn. From the minute we met her, Matt and I immediately warmed to Nicola - she is warm, funny, genuine and made us feel like we were part of her own family. The ceremony was perfect - not only were the words bespoke and personal to us - her delivery and facilitation was simply excellent. We had around 105 guests and have been inundated with family and friends who said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had been part of. Matt and I are so grateful to Nicola for her professionalism, love, warmth and genuinely authentic ceremony - we couldn’t have asked for more, even if it was from a member of our own family or close friend. A heartfelt thank you Nicola.
  • We wanted to share a HUUUUGE thank you for conducting such an incredible, personal and memorable ceremony. It couldn’t have gone more perfectly, and we have had so many comments from guests about how personal it was and how well suited to us as a couple! We barely made a tweak from your first draft, you captured everything so well. Your style was perfectly natural and so calm and funny during the random bits which didn’t go quite so to plan! We loved working with you from our very first confused enquiries about Australia and legal ceremonies, to meeting Nicola last year and you this year, to your final Cornish Well Wishing on the day! Thank you thank you thank you!
