Celebrant-led Weddings

If you’re looking for an experienced Kent Wedding Celebrant for your Wedding Ceremony Celebration, Wedding Blessing or Vow Renewal then you’re in the right place! Have a good look around, and let me know if we can help.

There are many reasons for needing the services of a professional Celebrant. It could be that you’re getting married at home, or somewhere unlicensed like a woodland or festival. Maybe your wedding plans are for a grander setting like a castle or stately home. You could be an international couple coming home to the UK for a wedding amongst family and friends. Beautifully tailored Celebrant-led wedding ceremonies are the perfect option for modern couples as there is so much more flexibility on content and location. And they’re always a perfect reflection of your personalities – unlike a registrar-led civil service.

I’m Katie Keen, and joined by Jo Olagboyega , we are a small but perfectly formed team! Katie is located between Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells and Jo lives in Ashford, and so we cover the entire county of Kent and of course, much further afield too. As an experienced Kent Wedding Celebrant Katie has helped hundreds of couples celebrate their love with a bespoke, personalised wedding ceremony.

If you’re searching for a Wedding Celebrant for a wedding in Kent then look no further. We also frequently take weddings in our local counties of Sussex, Surrey and Essex. We also love to officiate at the many beautiful London wedding venues you may be considering. And of course we absolutely adore being asked to head a bit further away for destination weddings. In recent years Katie has taken weddings in The Cotswolds, Hampshire, Hertfordshire and in Gietthorn, Netherlands.

You might have spotted Katie in 2023 on E4’s Married at First Sight UK officiating Erica & Jordan’s wedding ceremony; she was also on the show back in 2021 marrying Morag & Luke. TV weddings are great PR, but what we really love is sharing authentic love in joyful wedding ceremonies for real couples who have a beautiful story to tell.

Celebrant-led weddings are currently trending here in the UK (according to The Hitched Wedding Trends Report ). This means that experienced Kent Wedding Celebrants like us are in even more demand to perform customised and bespoke ceremonies. More and more modern couples want their wedding ceremony to reflect their personalities, values and vision for the day. And what better way to kick off those celebrations than with a Celebrant-led wedding ceremony? Here’s what Tess and Tom had to say about theirs:

“We couldn’t have wished for a more dreamy ceremony in the woods. Katie, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for really getting to know us, and our love. You curated the most meaningful and personal ceremony that made us laugh and cry. Words and vows we’ll remember for ever.” Tess & Tom

Who needs a Celebrant-led Wedding?

Couples who want a meaningful, personalised ceremony that’s all about them!  But also, couples who want to hold their wedding somewhere without a civil marriage licence.  This could be their family home or outdoors in a forest, festival site or woodland.
