Michelle Taylor

Wedding and Family Celebrant

Just received a lovely testimonial from a fellow celebrant whose vow renewal ceremony I conducted last week…Life doesn’t get better than this 

Our Renewal of Vows…
A ceremony conducted FOR a Celebrant BY a Celebrant!!

Thank you Michelle Taylor for conducting our ceremony. It was everything we could have wished for and more. Looking back at the ceremony from a celebrants point of view, there is nothing I would change.
After meeting you last year and observing a wedding that you conducted, I just knew that you would be the perfect person to conduct our ceremony and I know that Jeremy felt the same.
We are absolutely delighted with our photographs from Kevin Paul Taylor. You compliment each other and work so well together. Thank you both for lasting memories.

This is why we do the job we do…testimonials, just like this ….Still grinning 

To dear Michelle & Kevin,

You are an incredibly hard working and professional couple who both played a large part in helping us achieve our prefect day

Michelle~  the ceremony was everything we wanted it to be; personal, intimate and romantic with lots of laughter and a few tears. You understood how important our children and family are to us, and the ceremony captured those feelings and celebrated two families coming together. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and it is a real testament to you that everyone is still talking about it to this day!

Kevin~ As you know neither of us is particularly comfortable in front of the camera, but your calm unflustered nature, patience,your attention to detail and creativity meant that we have some stunning photos that our family and friends are thrilled with. Ensuring that the memories will live on forever!

Thank you both once again.

Getting off on the right foot....

The sun is shining and Spring is definitely in the air….I’m celebrating a milestone birthday this month and so far….feeling pretty epic about it all! 50 is only a number…it is how you feel about life, love and the universe that affects and effects everything around you…

I had the awesome pleasure of conducting a ceremony last Sunday at Gaynes Park in Epping, Essex, between two beautiful souls….The wedding really wasn’t about just the two of them though, it was (as it should be) about the coming together of two families and shared values….AND WHAT FAMILIES!!!!!! 

I have never seen smiles and grins like it from both sides….There was so much laughter, in all the right places….a little bit of heckling ….again in all the right places.And the right amount of jostling as everyone tried to get ‘the’ shot of the Bride and Groom as they completed a Saapatia ceremony…..2 clay pots are placed at their feet, containing lentils, silver, sugar and turmeric. The contents signify the bounty of nature, prosperity, sweetness and good health…The first to break the pot traditionally rules the household…

Being the fair person that I am, I tried to hold the groom back a little, giving his new bride the freedom to express herself fully. The groom managed to kick the brides pot away from her…so it was just out of reach. All done in such good humour it was a joy to behold. And so we started the countdown… 3,2…….We didn’t quite get to 1 as the bride was out of the starting blocks and stamping down on her Saapatia before the groom had chance to lift his foot….The room erupted with cheers and shouts, laughter and clapping……It was beyond fun and just….so them. 

This is what your wedding day should be about, enjoying every second and celebrating love in all its glory with those who mean the most to you.

I wish the new Mr & Mrs Jaffer, a lifetime of love and laughter….they certainly got off on the right foot!
