  • J & Y

    Susan is the ultimate professional. She did the most amazing job for our wedding and worked with us to create the perfect ceremony with short notice. Our aim was to incorporate a fusion of cultures and the end result far exceeded our expectations. There were a few last minute amendments and additions which were dealt with with true professionalism. Look no further if you’re in search of a celebrant!

  • Ann Marie & Mark

    We had a wonderful wedding day and honeymoon. We are overwhelmed with how amazing it has all been!
    Sue is extremely professional but also warm and clearly enjoys being a celebrant. As soon as I had the first meeting I knew Sue would be perfect. Sue took the time to get to know us both and really helped us to create a ceremony to suit our Wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and emotional and our guests felt it too, their comments have been very complimentary.

  • Kate and Desh

    Our wedding day was always going to be a very special day.
    Desh & I had known each other for 35 years and although we had kept in touch all those years, fate decided that now was the time to commit to each other.
    Not being church-goers and having our own ideas of how we wanted the ceremony to be, we asked Sue to hold our hands through the process of designing the perfect ceremony, with all the components that were personal to us.
    We only had a vague plan to begin with! Sue was amazing in guiding us through every stage, giving us time to go away and think about readings, vows and words for the exchange of rings. She guided just enough, but let us really feel that each choice was our own.
    Gradually the ceremony began to take shape. We asked guests to do readings, blessings and a hand-fasting, and on the big day, as we stood in a circle of rose petals, family, friends and candle-light, we felt held and safely guided by Sue. Not rushed, everything in it’s place, perfectly timed and steered by the experience and expertise of our celebrant. I felt so composed and calm, knowing that Sue had everything ready and covered. It was so magical.

    A day I will never forget.

  • Samia & Sylvain

    Hi Sue!
    We got married in August 2016 and as we didn’t want a traditional church service, we were looking for a service which was personal yet meaningful to us.
    We met Sue at our home and within a few minutes realised that she would be the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. We chatted with her about our feelings for each other and she got a real sense of ‘us’ as a couple and what marriage meant to us. We were so happy with the vows which Sue penned for us to read to each other, they were sentimental yet managed to capture our fun side too and on the day all of our guests said that it was one of the nicest wedding services they had been to. We especially liked our sand ceremony which Sue suggested at the end of saying our vows and that was something that everyone hadn’t witnessed before so it made it all the more unique and special.
    We would highly recommend Sue if you want a beautiful wedding service which all your guests (and you) will remember forever!
    Much love,

  • Suzy Price

    Dear Sue,

    We had a wonderful wedding day and the ceremony and your support throughout was just perfect.

    Your professional, calm and reassuring manner filled us with confidence from the start and we felt comfortable sharing our story with you. You listened attentively to our wishes and crafted our wedding ceremony, vows and story carefully for our big day just as we wanted.

    Everything went so smoothly and beautifully… the Christmas lights twinkled, the candles cast a golden glow, everyone was made welcome and put at ease, our pledges and vows were shared and tears of happiness were shed by many throughout the ceremony.

    Your wise words regarding the importance of love, patience, forgiveness and laughter in our marriage remain with us still.

    Thank you again for your wonderful support on our wedding day and we shall send our friends and family your way.
    Thank you so much.

  • Deirdre & Martin

    Having done the ‘legals’ in Australia, we needed an intimate ceremony to celebrate our marriage in the UK with our loved ones. We found Sue online and from our first contact she set us at ease.
    In spite of the miles, she conveyed a warmth and personal touch in her communications. Working closely with us, she created a ceremony that told our story and helped us to include a hand fasting.
    Our day was fantastic not in small part due to Sue’s professionalism and attention to detail. Our guests all commented on how special the service was.
    Thank you very much for making our dream day all that it could be.
    We highly recommend Sue – she will make your day something special to remember for years to come.

  • April

    I met Sue at a wedding fayre, held at Soughton Hall which just so happened to be our wedding venue. As most brides will find your often only there for the freebies … I was that bride!

    As I approached Sue I gravitated to her smile and warmth, I hadn’t considered a celebrant to conduct our ceremony and in all honesty my future husband was averse to the idea when we first discussed it, however when we both met Sue we were sold straight away. She ‘got us’ right from the off – she was able to help us articulate our feelings for one another, and what was important for us to both share intimately in our service but also with our guests too.

    Sue was so easily accessible prior to our ceremony, checking in regularly and working with us back and forth to fine tune the vows we wanted to craft together. Sue’s love, passion and understanding resulted in the most perfect ceremony with every single one of our guests asking who she was – she held my hand, and gave me the encouragement I needed to speak aloud my immensely personal vows and genuinely without her I couldn’t have done it, and being able to say them was so incredibly important. I really can’t thank you enough, it meant a great deal to me to be able to open up to you to ensure my vows said what I really wanted them to say.

    If anyone is at all apprehensive as to whether you are doing the right thing by choosing to have Sue as your Celebrant, I can assure you, you are – if being able say the things you really want to say to each other isn’t enough on such an important day, you can also be as ‘fashionably late’ as you like, without fear of the registrar dashing off to their next appointment … I certainly was, as my father kept me behind sipping limoncello! ☺️

    Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without Sue, we don’t look back without talking about her and how supportive she was, despite being incredibly subtle and discreet on the day! ❤️

    Thank you Sue, you forever hold a special pace in our hearts!

  • Angie & Matthew Parry

    Everyone commented what an amazing service you gave and how apt the words were.

  • Ceri and Nathan

    Sue was the celebrant at our wedding in May 2017. Sue provided a very professional service from our first meeting to the wedding day itself and really put us at ease. Sue listened to all our ideas, and was happy to adapt every detail of the ceremony to suit us. We really valued being able to put in our own spirituality and a hand-fasting- neither of which would be possible in a church or civil ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how personal the ceremony was. Thank you so much Sue, it was an amazing experience!
    Thanks again!

  • Paul & Louisa

    Sue was amazing . She spent time with us to get an understanding of our ‘story’ which she incorporated into the ceremony. She checked all the wording with us beforehand and she spoke clearly throughout the ceremony and put us both at ease before and during the wedding.
    Quite a few of our guests said it was the nicest and most personalised ceremony they had ever been to. We would highly recommend Sue to anyone.

  • Jonny & Ryan

    Hi Sue,
    I thought I would drop you a line to say how happy we were with the ceremony on Saturday. Your words were beautiful and we both especially loved your reading at the end which was your surprise gift to us. So many of our guests said how wonderful you were and many commented that it was the best ceremony they’d ever witnessed. I knew you would make it special but wasn’t quite prepared for how beautiful it would be.
    Much love

  • Amy & George

    Dear Sue
    We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our celebrant wedding ceremony on July 15th 2017. It was so great to work with you on our vows and the ceremony was just beautiful – you truly captured everything that we wanted for the day. Thank you so much!

  • Lisa & Stephen

    Just a quick email to say thank you so much for yesterday. It was everything we wanted and perfect. We enjoyed every moment. Thank you so much again,
    Kind regards

  • Carol

    From the moment we met with Sue, she ‘got us’. This quick understanding of our relationship made it easy for my quiet husband-to-be to relax into talking about our plans for the day and give Sue enough information to write our bespoke ceremony for us. Sue’s service was swift (well… she had to be as we only gave her 7 or so weeks to prepare from when we set our date ? ) and wonderfully attentive. Our ceremony will forever be ours and ours alone and for every couple to have that, I could not recommend Sue enough.”
    Kind regards

  • Jen

    Thank you so much for the amazing ceremony on Sunday it was perfect. We had the most perfect day and you made it so personal and special.
    Thank you

  • Danielle & Seamus

    Two years this Monday since the amazing Sue married us – top service.
    Thanks again!

  • Kate Park

    Hi Sue,
    It was lovely to work with you and I thought the ceremony was beautiful and personal to Amy & George.
    I will definitely recommend you to future clients.
    Many Thanks!

  • Jane

    This lady is truly awesome – her attention to detail is exemplary and I can guarantee that your wedding will be the day you dreamed of, as was my daughters. Sue, you made the wedding day of their dreams and it was a day everyone is still talking about .

  • Mark Jackson

    Sue recently provided a beautiful ceremony for our clients who were flying in from Shanghai for their wedding at Carlton Towers. Despite the challenge of international communication and an extremely busy couple Sue provided a flawless service which impressed all our guests from around the world. We would not hesitate in recommending Sue and look forward to working with her again in the future.

  • Cindy and Wayne

    Susan planned a really lovely wedding ceremony for me on my wedding!
    My husband, my friends and I are from different countries and we have never met her before the actual wedding. Susan managed a series of Skype calls to us in China and she sent us emails to check with every detail of the wedding.
    I couldn’t stop crying even looking at the vows she wrote and everything was so touching and amazing to me on that special day. Her ceremony was so meaningful.
    We used a knot ceremony to represent our completion of wedding and all the guests were amazed by this kind of representation. And she is such a kind and nice lady as well and I will never forget about her and thank you for providing us such a wonderful memory

  • Derek and Angie

    First of all, thank you for contributing to our amazing day.
    Your professionalism, kindness and attention to detail were delightful.
    Thanks again

  • Sam & Ihe

    Dear Sue
    Thank you so much again for performing our wedding ceremony. The service was tailor made for us and very special indeed.

    Sue was so thoughtful when planning and preparing our ceremony. She thought of everything and offered us lots of options when we met her before the actual day. There was extra special consideration for our ceremony too.

    We would recommend Sue to anyone. Thank you again for being part of our perfect day.

  • Emma and Caz Grove

    Hi Sue,
    Thank you very much for creating and carrying out a truly lovely ceremony for our day, the words you put together reflected us brilliantly. It was great to meet you on the couple of occasions beforehand, getting to know you while you gently ‘grilled’ us on our relationship ? and clearly understanding our sense of humour too.
    Our guests have all complimented the style and vibe of the ceremony, sending love, joy and happy emotions to every ones hearts. Some even said they cried more at our wedding than their own!

    We felt so at ease when around you and had no reservations trusting you to keep all but our vows secret, surprising us with the rest on the day, you really did make it special and we’ll be forever grateful.

  • Chloe and Chris

    You were fab! We really enjoyed the whole ceremony. The vows were lovely and our parents absolutely loved it, which was the main aim!
    Thank you so much!

  • Ryan and Parnian

    Susan was a fantastic wedding officiant. My partner and I were nervous as we were doing a destination wedding (we live in California) but Susan made us feel very comfortable through multiple Skype sessions. Her ceremony speech was warm, fun and heartfelt. We highly recommend contacting Sue if you’re looking for an officiant!

  • Kerry and Danny

    Susan was an absolutely wonderful celebrant. We were having both a wedding ceremony and naming ceremony for our two daughters on our big day. At our meeting she took down the finer details of our relationship and what the ceremony meant to us and the type of wedding we were trying to achieve- modern, lively, rustic and all about family, and she made the whole script personal, individual and humorous. We felt so confident in her service – so much so that we allowed her to keep the ceremony script a surprise, and as we are non-religious or spiritual, Susan was able to tailor the ceremony to our modern tastes. With the use of a sand ceremony for the girls naming part and a hand-fasting for our coming together… It was perfect – modern and so interesting. She was able to give us ideas about writing our own vows; she included stories about our lives together and the poem that she read out at the end had everyone filled with emotion. The comments I received on the day were that ‘this has been the best wedding I have ever been to’ and Susan’s ceremony played a big part in that

  • Laura and Connaire

    Sue officiated our wedding day a few weeks ago, and there are just no words to describe how amazing our ceremony was because of her. Sue was professional from the day we met her, so kind and approachable, nothing was ever too much trouble.

    Sue spent time with my partner and I to listen to our story, how we got together and what happened in our lives to get us to where we are today. She incorporated this into our ceremony and it was just so so beautiful. Everyone at our wedding commented on how special and personal it was, so many said that they’d never been to a wedding like it.

    I’d never heard of a celebrant before I met Sue, but it was the best decision we could have made. Thank you for making our day so perfect Sue, you deserve all the success in the world.

  • Susan and James Masterman

    From the moment that we met Susan, both of us knew that she was the person that we wanted to lead our service. She is so full of passion in what she does and how she conducts herself and that really made us feel at ease knowing that the day would be perfect. Susan really made the greatest effort to get to know us both individually and as a couple. In doing so she really gained an understanding of how to produce a ceremony that was completely personalized to us, our guests and to the venue.

    The day was simply perfect in every way. The sun was shining, which meant that we were able to hold the ceremony outside under the bridge. Susan arrived and set up extremely professionally and made me (James) feel at ease, despite my best efforts to stress over every little detail in the lead up to the service. She met with guests that had a key role to play prior to the ceremony so that everyone was clear on how to make all the transitions during the ceremony as smooth as possible.

    The manner in which Susan carried out the ceremony made for a relaxed and jovial atmosphere with many laughs and joyous tears shared throughout in the way that she shared our stories with our guests.

    Many of our guests commented on how fantastic the ceremony was and this truly set the tone for the rest of the most special day ever. We are both so grateful to the wonderful job that Susan did and there hasn’t been a day gone by when I haven’t thought about how perfect it was!

    Thank you

  • Nina

    A day we will never forget… not just the perfect wedding but a day surrounded by the most perfect people and I don’t just mean the guests, this went as far as the people we chose to make our day run stress and worry free.

    From day one when we met Sue we knew that she was perfectly suited for our “non traditional wedding”. Sue was very professional and extremely relaxed in her approach, she knew every answer to every worry, we had no doubt she would deliver our perfect Ceremony at home and her light-hearted personality complimented our day just as we wished for.

    We made the perfect choice.

  • Hazel and Clavi

    We had decided that we wanted to have a celebrant for our service in order to create a more personal feel to the day.

    We came across Sue online and met up for a coffee. She instantly put us at ease and we chatted away easily to her. Somehow she managed to take that conversation and make it into the most beautiful ceremony for us.

    It was perfect.

    Thank you Sue for being such a big part of our special day.

  • Sarah

    Sue made both of us feel relaxed throughout right from our first meeting to the ceremony itself. She made us both feel at ease. Our ceremony was perfect and Sue really listened to everything we told her to make it all personalised to us.

    We were able to contact Sue with all our questions and she was happy to help us. ?

    We would highly recommend Sue to anyone.

    Thank you Sue for making our ceremony perfect, love from the new Mr. & Mrs Gosling.

  • Alisanne

    When you start to plan the wedding you think the dress, the venue and the food are some the most important parts of the day. On the weeks running up to the wedding it dawns on you, well it certainly did me(!), that actually the most important thing are the words said and the promise made. That is ultimately the reason of the wedding.

    Sue hand crafted a bespoke wedding that wasn’t too romantic, wasn’t religious, wasn’t too short or too long, and incorporated all the people and parts of our relationship that helped our relationship grow into the partnership and marriage that we have today. Our guests all thoroughly enjoyed the different elements we included in the ceremony (the poem, candle lighting and hand fasting) and have all commented that the humour and also the sentiment that flowed through the entire ceremony, it was ‘very us’.

    Nothing was too much trouble for Sue, she visited the venue and met with us several times to really understand who we are individually as well as in our partnership, and wrote our ceremony beautifully in the up coming weeks to the wedding.

    I couldn’t thank Sue enough for helping to make our wedding perfect and for describing our relationship so accurately, setting us off into married life on a high.

    Thank you.

  • Karen

    We had a wonderful ceremony renewing our wedding vows, with Susan conducting. It was a wonderful day & Sue was excellent, from the very first meeting we had with her. She captured everything about us & helped us write our own vows making our day so special. I would highly recommend Susan Foxall Ceremonies!

    Thank you Sue’ x

  • Joolz & Brad

    I’m so tremendously happy that we met Sue at a wedding open day.
    From the first time we met I knew she was the celebrant for our wedding.
    The attention to detail and help in making our ceremony unique, with a mix of pagan and Native American influences, just outstanding!
    She really got to know us and was always there for a helping hand up until our big day.

    Bradley and I felt so relaxed and confident in our vows and would like to thank you once again so much for our beautiful ceremony.

  • Emma

    Dear Sue,
    I just wanted to say a huge thank you from both myself and Oliver. We had the most magical wedding day and we have made memories we will cherish forever. Thank you so much for delivering the most amazing ceremony – your words were just so touching and hearing our story unfold and our thoughts on each other was just wonderful to hear.

  • Col & Jen

    We are so pleased we chose Sue – she spent time with us to ensure she got to know us and this was evident with her wonderful, personal and emotional delivery of our ceremony.
    Sue also spent time helping our kids prepare their speech and again this support was invaluable to them and they delivered a moving and funny reading at the ceremony.
    We would highly recommend Sue

  • Chanan and Daniel

    Dear Susan,
    Thank you so much for making our civil ceremony so intimate and a reflection of our personalities and love for each other!

  • Annie Bickerton

    A great wedding with fabulous feedback.
    Thanks Sue

  • Rachael

    Dear Sue,
    Your review form is very easy to complete.
    You saved us when we only had 5 weeks to go after being messed around.
    You worked exactly to our brief and completely understood our requirements.
    You responded quickly and supportively to all queries.

    We could not be happier with everything you have done for us in making our day both special and meaningful.
    Thank you so much.

  • Lynsay and Rod

    Hi Sue
    Wanted to say thanks again for Saturday. I am so glad the registrar was busy!
    All our love X

  • Kevin and Stephen

    Hi Susan,
    Thank you so much for the incredible and memorable ceremony you performed for our Rookery Hall wedding.
    We were thrilled with the entire day as it was so much more than we could have ever imagined, from the Ceremony, the venue, the cake and most of all the cast of International folks attending.
    We have received many compliments on the ceremony and your memorable personalization for us!
    One of our favorite photos captured was of Kevin’s daughter wiping away tears of joy during the ceremony.

  • Hannah & Steve

    Hi Sue,
    our certificate has arrived save and sound thank you so much again for conducting a wonderful ceremony. All we have heard is how wonderful it was and the beautiful words that were spoken.
    Thanks again.

  • Zoe

    We cannot thank Susan enough for making our day so special!

    The ceremony was for us the most important part of the day and we both agreed that our celebrant would need to be someone that we both felt a connection with.
    Susan straight away made us feel very at ease and comfortable to talk to. After just our first meeting we felt very sure that we were in capable and caring hands. We live in another country with a 6 hour time difference so we were worried about being able to talk and finding suitable times but Susan worked completely selflessly to arrange Skype meetings that would best suit us! She really made it seem like it wasn’t anything to worry about and I really thank her for accommodating those meetings so kindly.
    Susan listened carefully to the history of our relationship and our thoughts on each other and our marriage and used our own words and thoughts to create and deliver a beautiful ceremony. She listened to any worries we had about family members and was able to include my faith in a way that best suited us as a couple and our families.
    The words within our ceremony were personal and very beautiful. All of our guests commented on how the ceremony felt truly special as it was so personal.
    Susan went above and beyond to create a ceremony that was perfect for us and has helped to create such special memories that we will treasure for life!

  • Andrew

    Hi Sue,

    Many thanks

What Makes Us Unique

In a nutshell

Whatever your reason for visiting Susan Foxall Ceremonies, my experience and professionalism will ensure that you walk away with the right memories.

I am friendly, warm and approachable, with impeccable attention to detail and a genuine wish to help you have your day, done your way.

Why do you want to work with LGBTQ+ couples?

If you want your wedding ceremony to be truly unique and individual, then choosing an ancient service from a rigid prayer book, one that's exactly the same for every couple, won't be right for you.

What is your creative approach to weddings?

I came to this work after attending services where I (and a considerable number of the congregation) felt short-changed by the rigid format of a prayer book, conducted by a minister who at best, showed little humanity, and at worst, got the names wrong!
