Hi, I’m Carol Smith and I’m an independent celebrant. I deliver unique, personalised and meaningful ceremonies for those special occasions in life, throughout the Southwest, and across the UK and Europe.

Let me work with you to create a truly bespoke, precious and memorable occasion.

The Somerset Celebrant

Congratulations!!! If you’re on here, you’re looking for a wedding celebrant, and so must be planning your wedding, how exciting!!

Choosing a celebrant led-wedding means you value the importance of having a wedding ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple; your uniqueness, your individuality and your story.

We will work closely together to craft the wedding ceremony that is perfect for you, to ensure lasting and happy memories of your special day.

A Bit About Me

As an English teacher, I’d often been asked to speak at, or lead the weddings of friends and family. It was something I really loved and enjoyed doing. So, after celebrating my daughter’s amazing tipi wedding, I decided it was time to take the plunge and become a Family Celebrant.

I love it. I get to meet some amazing couples. I spend time with them, to understand their wants, in order to craft and deliver the perfect ceremony for them. My gallery page reflects the joy and happiness created!

I live with my partner, Brian and have three grown-up children. Three years ago I became a grandmother for the first time, since then two more have been added to the ‘clan’. Family is very important to me, it’s where I enjoy my time and make my fondest memories.

Working with couples and families to create their special memories is such a privilege. In fact I can’t believe how much I love every aspect of what I do! Just how lucky am I?

I love writing my blog, I try and answer many of the questions that I get asked on it, as well sharing tips and ideas and beautiful moments from my wedding ceremonies.

Your Wedding Ceremony – The Confetti Throw

My favourite wedding photographs of any wedding is most definitely the confetti shots. They just capture that moment of sheer joy, love and happiness that everyone is feeling at the end of the wedding ceremony. The adrenaline is pumping and everyone is looking forward to a glass of something sparkly!
