Miranda transformed what we expected to be the most formal part of our day into the highlight of our entire wedding. We knew from our first conversation that Miranda shared our ceremony vision and was the perfect celebrant for us! The entire process was collaborative and emotional, full of inspiring suggestions and creative direction from Miranda. On the day our ceremony was executed to perfection - Miranda created a safe and intimate space where James and I could completely relax and enjoy the experience. Miranda wrote the ceremony in a way that made the entire party feel included and the energy was very special...I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room!
I wouldn’t think twice about recommending Miranda to anyone - she is a gifted and spirited celebrant who will blow any expectations you may have out the water! Thank you Miranda, can we do it again?!

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, SEPTEMBER 2018
From the moment we met Miranda we knew we were in safe hands. We had no idea where to begin with planning our wedding ceremony except that we knew we wanted something non-traditional and that reflected our unique journey as individuals and as a couple. Prior to meeting Miranda, we had been nervous about this part of our day but she immediately put us at ease. Miranda is drama-free. In the months and weeks before our wedding, whenever a problem came up, we were able to turn to Miranda for advice and support.
Miranda took time to get to know us. She asked lots of questions about our background, our story, our hopes and dreams before discussing our ceremony. She then crafted our responses into a ceremony which became the highlight of our day and set the tone for what became the most magical day of our lives! On the day of our wedding, Miranda took time to welcome our family and friends and make every individual feel embraced and loved. Thank you Miranda for embracing us as a couple, and creating a truly unique experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, MEXICO, MAY 2016
We were delighted with how the ceremony and day went, and I can't thank you enough for your advice and guidance in advance of our special day. The Sand Ceremony was so magical and very personal to us having got married in Mauritius two weeks earlier, bringing some of the sand from the beach we got married on was a perfect suggestion by you! It was also fantastic to be able to involve the children in our ceremony, a moment they (and we) will treasure forever. Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful and heartfelt the whole service was. It was truly special to be able to write our own vows with your help, those beautiful and true words will always be close to our hearts.
We would like to thank you so much for your professionalism and for your contribution in making our day so beautifully magical!

Thank you for going out of your way to create the most beautiful intimate ceremony for us. You wove all the highlights of our 35 years together in to a symbolic and deeply moving script not only honouring our relationship but our fight for equal marriage. We loved your attention to detail as well as suggestions for how we could incorporate some unique elements such as a hand fasting which included all our friends and family. We’re so happy that we decided to work with you!

HASLEMERE, SURREY, NOVEMBER 2013
Miranda is absolutely fantastic. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Miranda and working with her to make our day special. Miranda took time to get to know us as a couple and even asks for separate answers from each of us to incorporate a surprise section into our wedding ceremony for example "when asked Chloe to describe Mark she said ...".
Miranda is professional yet very friendly. Miranda made our ceremony so special and one to remember forever. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Miranda.

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, AUGUST 2017
I remember my wedding as if it was just yesterday and like so many people wish I could "re-play" all again! The part that would be most prevalent would be my wedding vows! The whole process of planning my wedding ceremony with Miranda was excellent. Miranda really listened to me & my husband-to-be and what were important values and aspects that we wanted in our wedding ceremony. We had several meetings, all enjoyable and Miranda had some really personal suggestions to our ceremony, including references to my late-father which was so well thought out.
I was so happy having Miranda on our wedding day, she was a support to everyone including my now husband (especially when I arrived later than planned to the ceremony!!). Miranda delivered such a beautiful ceremony, so personal and the atmosphere she created with our guests was amazing! We had so many comments, not only on the day but for a long time afterwards, about what a beautiful, unique and personal a service it was. I felt very blessed on my wedding day, not only with the love of my husband and all the special guests but having someone such as Miranda to hold such a personal and wonderful ceremony for us!

THE BEL + DRAGON, GODALMING, OCTOBER 2013
Miranda was a joy to work with throughout! She had invaluable tips for the ceremony and for the big day in general. Knowing that she was in our corner took a lot of the wedding planning stress away. Thank you for being such a warm, sensitive, patient, and lovely presence throughout. We've had sooo many of the guests come up and tell us that the ceremony was an absolute highlight and also received many many comments saying it was the best wedding they'd ever attended. We are so grateful. THANK YOU, MIRANDA!!

BLOOMSBURY HOUSE, LONDON, AUGUST 2018
We were introduced to Miranda through our wedding venue who had said that she was the best celebrant that they had met which really put us at ease immediately. We met Miranda for the first time quite early on in our engagement and the meeting went so well, we knew we made the right decision by having her at our wedding. Miranda is such a lovely person, really friendly and she instantly understood us as a couple. What followed was a few more phone calls which were all so easy and that was it! We didn’t have to think about that part of the wedding until the actual day as we knew everything was in good hands.
Then the wedding day arrived, which was just great. The ceremony was exactly how I wanted it to be; really relaxed and fun! We had a few jokes throughout and Miranda did an amazing job. Everyone loved it and really enjoyed Miranda’s service it was just perfect. I would highly recommend anyone to meet Miranda and have her part of their wedding, she was great!
Thanks again Miranda!

Miranda created the ceremony we had always imagined. It summed us up as a couple perfectly and all of our friends and family agreed. We took a very chilled approach when planning our wedding and Miranda’s kind words and help with planning allowed us to feel totally relaxed on our special day. We are really thankful that High Billinghurst recommended Miranda to us as she was a massive part of our day and helped us create memories that we will cherish forever. I couldn’t recommend Miranda more and we will be forever thankful. Is it too soon to renew our wedding vows?!!

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, NOVEMBER 2019
We feel completely blessed to have found Miranda for our wedding day! Our venue recommended Miranda completely by chance, and what a chance that was! She is one of the bubbliest and friendliest people we have ever met! From the first time we spoke we got on so well - with mutual interests very much in common (cough cough, Lord of The Rings!)
She put us as ease and helped us manage a process we were not very knowledgable about at all. She explained each step and what we needed to do in preparation for our ceremony - including our legal ceremony too. She asked us to fill in some questionnaires so she could use the information to write our own bespoke ceremony script, completed catered to us and who we are as a couple. She let us add, remove and change the script as many times as we wanted, so we could make sure it was perfect.
On the day, Miranda arrived early so she could prepare and meet our wedding party. She was instrumental in making sure the ceremony ran smoothly, whilst I was away not being able to manage a thing! Our ceremony was beautiful, and everything we wanted and more. It was intimate, personal and had the perfect balance of humour and emotion. Our guests commented on how moving it was, and how great Miranda was performing our ceremony.
Thank you so much to Miranda for all you did in the lead up, and on our wedding day - without you we couldn’t have had the day we always wanted. We are forever grateful!

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, MARCH 2020
Miranda was a breath of fresh air when it came to planning our wedding ceremony. The moment she picked up the phone, we knew that she was the one for us. She went above and beyond to help us craft a perfectly unique and personal ceremony and every single one of our guests was blown away on the day; no one had ever been to a wedding ceremony quite like ours!
Our original plan was to have a registrar re-create our legal ceremony, and we are so incredibly glad we didn’t!
Highly recommend to anyone else who is thinking about using a celebrant, you won’t regret it!

THE BARN AT AVINGTON, HAMPSHIRE, JULY 2021
From my first conversation with Miranda, I knew she was the one that we wanted at our wedding! She completely understood what we wanted at our ceremony and helped us immensely in the planning.
She was by our sides when we had to postpone 3 times due to Covid and was such a calming presence when we were faced with constant problems due to this. By the time we actually got married, it was like having a friend conduct the ceremony.
Her warmth and lovely personality shone through and the ceremony was amazing, she happily went along with our plans to inject a bit of humour in to the service and was generally amazing!
Would not hesitate to recommend Miranda.

BLETCHINGLY, SURREY, JULY 2021
We were recommended Miranda’s celebrant services by our venue, High Billinghurst Farm. We had originally planned to do a wedding in Italy but travel restrictions meant this was no longer a viable option. It meant we had to plan our wedding in four weeks!
It was a daunting task but we can absolutely say that having Miranda on our ‘team’ meant that it made it a little less daunting. We travelled to her lovely home to meet with her, and we instantly felt she was the right person for the job. Those first impressions were correct, and she was a pleasure to work with throughout the process.
The ceremony on the day was beautiful and we were blessed with sunshine. Both in terms of the weather and in terms of Miranda’s ceremony. The words she put together and the assistance she provided in making sure our vows and readings were memorable was amazing.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Miranda to family or friends as she provided a top-notch service. Thank you, Miranda! xx

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, AUGUST 2021
Miranda was an absolute pleasure and joy to work with! She was not only our celebrant during our wedding day, but she also our wedding agony aunt whilst re-planning our wedding three times during the pandemic.
Given most people have never planned a wedding before, she is so happy to provide useful guidance and advice about all aspects of your wedding and isn’t just your celebrant!
Miranda really loves to get to know her couples which enables her to write a really personal and beautifully crafted ceremony. She keeps certain aspects a surprise which is such a lovely touch for the couple to enjoy on the day. She works with you to write a ceremony that is meaningful and tells a story about your relationship, goals and wishes together as married couple.
We would highly recommend Miranda as a celebrant and master of ceremonies. She was absolutely fantastic on the day, kept our day running like clock work, working with all of our vendors and running our timetable; meaning as the couple we didn’t have to worry about a thing as the vendors were able to liase with Miranda and not bother us, which it’s worth its weight in gold.

HIGH BILLINGHURST FARM, SURREY, SEPTEMBER 2021
When it comes to love, there is somebody for everybody. The same is true of celebrants and Miranda was a perfect choice when we hand fasted and jumped the broom in May 2022.
Miranda is very organised and experienced, she walked us through the entire process and was open to all ideas, no matter how unusual. Miranda is definitely up for quirky and fun but of all, Miranda has a gorgeous positive energy and warmth that so many of our guests commented on. So much so, that some assumed Miranda was an old friend or family member officiating for us. We will definitely keep in touch with her, she’s a treasure!

NURSTEAD COURT, KENT, MAY 2022
Our ceremony was more perfect than anything we could have ever imagined. Miranda captured my husband and I perfectly. It was us.
There wasn’t a single part of the entire ceremony that wasn’t personalised to us. Everyone has commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the barn!
She didn’t just support us on the day but for 2 years leading up to the day! She was a godsend when we had to postpone due to covid and was such a huge support.
Having a celebrant led ceremony was the best decision we made. Miranda made us both feel at ease on a day when we were both a little nervous!
She encouraged us to write our own vows. We have both said that this was the highlight of the day and will treasure our printed vows forever.

SURREY, MAY 2022
Miranda was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From the start of our wedding planning we knew we didn't want an ordinary wedding- we wanted one that reflected our personalities, both individually and as a couple.
Miranda's ceremony certainly did that. Right from the start she took the time to get to know us, through several phone calls and in person meetings. We saw multiple drafts of our ceremony which Miranda was happy to edit until we were happy, and she even helped make sure our vows (which we wrote ourselves) were of a similar length and style.
On the day many people commented that it was the best ceremony they've every attended, and it's persuaded a few of our friends to explore having a celebrant led wedding.
Both in the build up to the wedding and on the day itself nothing was too much effort for Miranda, and she takes on so many more roles than just a celebrant. We feel like we've gained a friend. Thanks Miranda!

KINGSETTLE STUD, HAMPSHIRE, JUNE 2022
When we chose our wedding venue, Miranda was recommended as a celebrant – and boy, are we glad she was! We had an initial consultation call with Miranda and both of us felt completely at ease and she got to know us just through a conversation (rather than dreaded “let me work through a list of questions”). However, the detail and care taken by Miranda from the off was incredible – and what surprised us most was that she was able to figure out and include was important to us without us saying it. She knew how much we valued it being a celebration of our friends and families supporting us, our beagle Albie being included, or even that we’re both incredibly competitive.
As well as asking Miranda to be our celebrant, she kindly offered to be our MC, and we’re thrilled she did. Weddings rarely run as planned, but she was the one consistent thread that held the entire day together. Miranda also has that insane ability to make everybody relax and be their authentic selves – I have no idea how she does it, but she does. Our guests couldn’t stop telling us how our day felt so personal and “nothing could’ve summed us up better”.
In the run up to the wedding we weren’t the most relaxed (think Anna Wintour the night before the Met Gala) but Miranda kept us calm and reminded us that getting married is a joy and that we should enjoy ourselves. On the day, apparently things didn’t go 100% to plan, but we, as a couple, never felt it – because Miranda was orchestrating everything behind the scenes and our day still delivered exactly what we were after.
Honestly, we can’t recommend Miranda enough – our day wouldn’t have been “us” without her and she was there every step of the way – we had numerous zooms, we met at the venue, she even helped us get ready on our day!
Our only regret is that we only heard about Miranda because we were getting married. Everybody needs a Miranda in their lives – she’s the biggest cheerleader, a great coach and a great leader and we’re thrilled to now be lucky enough to call her a friend.

Hiring Miranda to be our wedding celebrant was a decision. From our first ever contact, it was like talking to a friend. There was no awkwardness, no boring formal conversations, the whole process just flowed nicely.
The way in which she takes you through everything is effortless. She guides you, gives you ideas but also understands if you want to take a little more control should you want to.
My wife and I, (and our kids by the way!) adore her. She’s an incredible person, celebrant and delivered her duties wonderfully. Extremely happy!
Thanks Miranda, you were a part of our special day and I wouldn’t change it so thanks for making it perfect and suited just for us.

MILLBRIDGE COURT, SURREY, AUGUST 2022
Miranda’s infectious enthusiasm stole our hearts from the second we met her. We met at a wedding fair and had never heard of celebrants or what they did before this day.
After a brief conversation we felt like we had been friends for years and could not contemplate our special day without her. Every step of the process was so relaxed and stress free- just like chatting to an old friend.
Miranda made our day so very special and ALL of our guests told us that the best part of the day was our Handfasting led by Miranda. It made our already unusual wedding even more individual and memorable. Thank you xxx
