On one of the hottest days of the year (yes we do have heat waves) we celebrated the love of Mike from Devon and Shakira from Mayalisa, both dentists in the UK who wanted a day capturing their personalities, their religions, heritages and traditions. So together we planned a day that everyone enjoyed, including the dogs! They had multiple wedding ceremonies, then came together as one during their wedding reception and party held at this little gem of a secret exclusive wedding venue near Taunton in Somerset, as I say on a scorching hot day - you can tell our hair did take a battering!

Words from the bride:
"Amanda is the most lovely celebrant & we couldn't be more happier that we had chosen her to be a part of our big wedding day which was in October 2021 :)With just days away from our big day, Amanda worked hard in order to prioritise getting our wedding script written up for our ceremony in 1 week which she did & did it perfectly & we are so grateful for all that she has done for us :)She made me & my partner feel very comfortable on the day, we had lots of banter & felt that she captured our love story perfectly & we loved all the other elements which were used in our ceremony from the lighting of candles to remember loved ones & the mixing of unity sand.All of the family & guests commented on how lovely & professional Amanda is & she truly was like one of our family. Me & my partner would just like to say that we would highly recommend Amanda for her services as she is a wonderful celebrant & lovely person all round & can grantee that you will treasure some great memories. Thank you again Amanda xx"
