It means so much when couples take the time to send me their feedback, sometimes this is by text or email but it is also wonderful when they leave me reviews online for me to share. It really helps other couples to make an informed decision and also helps me to develop my business and to learn from my couples to ensure that all my ceremonies meet the highest of standards.

Thank you so much to all my wonderful couples who have kindly left me a review!

Steph and Matt

Nikki was the warmest and kindest person we could have asked for to help us with creating our dream ceremony on our wedding day. She got to know us so well, and that was reflected in our script and was the highlight of the day for us. Her skill, knowledge and advice was exactly what we hoped for!

Hatti and Adam

It was an absolute pleasure to have Nikki as our celebrant at our wedding earlier this year. Nikki was so professional and delivered an amazing heartfelt ceremony. She was also super responsive and supportive in the run up to the ceremony. It’s very clear that she is so passionate about what she does and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to other engaged couples.

Ashleigh and Markus

We got engaged in October 2022 and met Nikki just two days later at a wedding fayre. We were immediately captivated by Nikki. Prior to meeting Nikki, we had never even heard of independent celebrants, but we left that wedding fayre sure in the knowledge that we had to have Nikki at our wedding!

During our eleven-month engagement, Nikki was a constant presence without imposing on us. She has always been available to chat, respond to questions and just share in our wedding joy! She has felt like a very safe, professional, and knowledgeable pair of hands.

Without a doubt, the highlight of our journey with Nikki was meeting her in London. We had the best time talking to Nikki and sharing the story of our relationship. We discussed the intricacies of our relationship and our hopes and dreams for the future. Nikki is a wonderful, personable character who has a way of just putting you at ease. It was so natural to share our lives with Nikki and it was such a special opportunity to talk about our relationship in this way.

We also had access to Nikki’s website which offers a wealth of information on the wedding ceremony. It was so lovely to have access to this and to have the time to really consider carefully, with Nikki’s guidance, what we wanted from our ceremony. Nikki provides fantastic resources.

Nikki created a beautiful, unique wedding script. It was absolutely perfect. In fact, happy tears were shed when we read it together! She had done the most incredible job of capturing us as a couple in a very creative way! It was detailed, personal, and just beautiful.

As we approached our wedding, Nikki was always available via email. She was a reassuring presence for us, our bridal party and our vendors, providing information on the venue, positioning diagrams and an order of service. Nikki was definitely a level above some of our other vendors because she was so accessible to us genuinely shared in our excitement for our wedding day.

Our wedding ceremony was really beautiful thanks to Nikki. The way she delivered the script was so thoughtful and lovely. Listening to Nikki share our love story really gave us an opportunity to stop and reflect on our journey so far. We had a ‘tying of the knot’ handfasting ceremony which included our mothers and added a more creative and dynamic element to the ceremony. It was a very special moment for us and our family and gave the guests something different to observe during our ceremony.

We have had so much positive feedback about our ceremony, with the main focus being the very personal and unique ceremony that Nikki curated and delivered. To be quite honest, our guests had never seen anything like it and were amazed to be part of something so special. Many of our guests have been to several weddings this year and reflected that Nikki offers something so much more that the quite repetitive and sterile ceremonies they’d seen before.

Nikki took some lovely photos of us, our venue and our wedding breakfast space and put together a lovely social media post which we were thrilled to share with our guests as she had, once again, captured it all so well!

We would highly recommend Nikki. If you’re not considering an independent celebrant, you should; and if you are, definitely consider Nikki! What she offers is something truly special. Your wedding day should reflect you. Your ceremony should pull together the story of your love, the elements of life that you hold dearest, and your hopes and dreams for the future. It is easy to achieve this with Nikki by your side. We are so grateful to her for sharing in our joy and pouring so much love into our special day.

Holly and James

Nikki not only delivered our perfect ceremony, way beyond our wildest expectations. But she was there to answer any questions on the lead up to the wedding throughout all the planning stages, not just about the details of her ceremony but even helped us with registrar’s and all the little things you wouldn’t think/know about on your own.

Nikki is so organised and that put my mind at ease, I knew she was going to take care of everything, from the music to even organising the groomsmen!!

Our ceremony was exactly how we hoped funny, light hearted, romantic and so so meaningful. Our guests loved it and really felt included on our day and in our love story.

Thank you so much Nikki! For all the hard work and for organising us and our guests/suppliers on the day, it went off without a hitch.
“It’s the best wedding I’ve ever been to, and we’ve only had the ceremony!!” Was a comment I received during our drinks reception!!! Need I say more? Xx

Sadie and Alex

We could not have asked for more from Nikki and highly recommend her. So many people commented on what a lovely personal ceremony it was, and also how pleasant Nikki was as a person in general. We did a rehearsal the day before so we knew exactly what to expect, and Nikki reached out to our suppliers directly to ensure everyone was on the same page, with very little input from us. Her organisation and calm manner made the ceremony run smoothly. Thank you! Sadie & Alex

Kate and Dominik

We worked with Nikki on our recent wedding – and we can honestly say that she 100% made the day as special as it was for us! Nikki put so much effort, thought and care into creating our perfect ceremony, really taking the time to understand us as a couple and reflect that in our ceremony – and Nikki’s expert advice and guidance really pulled our whole day together. She really went above and beyond, engaging with our international guests and organising the groomsmen, even learning translations!!

She has been an absolute joy to work with, and we’ve had so much fun getting to know Nikki during the process of writing our script for us. Nikki also turned things around very quickly for us and we couldn’t be more thankful for that – a real lifesaver!

We had endless compliments on our ceremony throughout the remainder of our day, and a beautiful keepsake of our script to look back on for years to come! We couldn’t recommend you enough Nikki! Thank you so much for making our day – Kate and Dom x

Ben and Amber

Nikki was so great for our wedding. She made the ceremony process so easy and enjoyable. Everyone at the wedding loved how warm she was. She truly loves her job and you can see it with the enthusiasm and love she brings into planning everything.

Tash and Russ

Nikki produced such a well thought out ceremony that it felt relaxed and easy. She gave off a calm and positive energy – which certainly helped with the nerves! From start to finish Nikki was incredibly professional and organised. And despite us missing a few deadlines she kept us on track and remained flexible, which we really appreciated.

Nikki really got to know us and produced a ceremony that was so personal as a result. She listened to any ideas we had and guided us through the whole process. I don’t think we realised at the time just how much we would benefit from her expertise! Nearly all our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. I think we managed tears and laughter all round! We wish we could do it all over again, she made it such a special moment!

Emily and Ollie

Nikki was incredible. She is so organised, thinking of every detail so we did not have to worry. She really listened and created the perfect unique ceremony for us. She was able to handle 8 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, children and a dog all getting involved! She had lots of fun innovative ideas which made it so special. So many guests commented afterwards on how great she was. Afterwards she provided beautifully prepared keep sakes, including beautiful handfasting ribbons and the ceremony printed out in full. We cannot recommend her enough!

Georgia and Ben

With multiple wedding postponements due to the pandemic, we went on a journey with Nikki!

Nikki took the time over many months to get to know us as a couple and her support and flexibility at every difficult decision we made to postpone our special day were greatly received.

She wrote us the most perfect, personal wedding ceremony script which was delivered so beautifully on our special day. We had so many wonderful comments from guests as to how great and special our ceremony was and most of that was to do with Nikki!

We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Stacey and Leon

We’re not quite exactly sure how to put into words just how special Nikki is to us. From the moment we visited Nikki’s website and then had our initial phone meeting, we knew that we wanted Nikki to be our celebrant, there was simply no hesitation.

Nikki is more than a celebrant, she became a friend, and she guided us through every step of the process which made us feel and know that we were in the safest of hands. She’s always there, no matter what day of the week or time of day it is.

The entire process of working with Nikki was thoroughly enjoyable and often kept us grounded with what the entire wedding is all about, which for us and like most others ultimately was all about love and our relationship. The dedication and level of detail Nikki went into to get to know us and our relationship meant that she could then write the most beautiful and powerful wedding script we’d ever heard.

To this day we’re still not quite sure how she did it, Nikki you are extremely talented!

We wanted our ceremony to be the perfect balance of our love story, express our love for one another but also be a bit light hearted and be intimate all at the same time and you delivered that balance perfectly. From the lead up, the ceremony, the rehearsal and everything you did all helped to ensure we had the best day and that everything ran smoothly, and we wholeheartedly know this was all down to you, your kindness and your expertise!

You really are the very best, and we both have had so many of our guests, both on the day and since then, compliment the ceremony.

They specifically mentioned how tailored and modern the ceremony was and how amazing you are Nikki, most of our guests even said it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they have ever seen! It was just so personal to us, and ultimately it was way better than what we could have ever asked for.

Nikki, we hand on heart genuinely cannot thank you enough for absolutely everything. Words really cannot express how forever grateful we are and will be to you. You are the very best, and thank you for making all our dreams come true!! Lots of Love, Leon & Stacey xxx

Laura and Si

If you’re looking for a celebrant … look no further. Nikki is simply first class and we honestly believe our wedding vow renewal would not have been the success it was without Nikki. Friendly, professional, innovative, creative, funny are just a few of Nikki’s qualities. We met Nikki a handful of times but by the end of the ceremony she felt like a longstanding friend of the family. We cannot recommend Nikki highly enough! Laura and Si xxx

Smitha and Mark

Nikki was absolutely fantastic – she wrote and put together our wedding ceremony in just 3 weeks which was no easy feat. Having dealt with so many other suppliers during the planning process, we really valued how responsive, prompt and professional she was from start to finish. Communication was clear with highlighted deadlines for our input (which made life so much easier for us and kept us accountable during a very busy period) and she always did what she said she would within the timescales discussed at the outset. Our ceremony was personalised to us and Nikki was warm, personable and a delight to work with!

Miles’ Naming Ceremony

I chose Nikki to be the celebrant for my sons naming ceremony and it was one of the best decisions I made.

She is both fun and professional, her attention to detail is outstanding and she is super organised and never had an issue with me changing and adding things to the script.

read more
My guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the ceremony, commenting on how personable it was and how they loved listening to her tell mine and my son’s story.

Nikki gave 110% even arriving early to help set up for the celebration and to run through the ceremony.

She provided beautiful keep sakes so that my family and I will remember and treasure the day forever.

I would definitely recommend Nikki, she is a truly wonderful person, thank you so much xx

Georgie and Scott

We were so lucky to have Nikki as our celebrant. Nikki is a warm, vibrant, highly organised and caring lady. Despite our 2 year covid delay Nikki was with us every step of the way. Nikki always went the extra mile and our guests loved how thoughtful and individual our ceremony was. It captured the essence of our relationship perfectly. Thank you so so much Nikki! You are a star. Love Georgie & Scott xx

Steph and Jack

We used Nikki as our celebrant for our wedding. When we were first looking at celebrants it seemed very daunting as we wanted it to be perfect after having had to cancel so many times. Within the first few minutes of talking to Nikki we didn’t even look for anyone else, we knew she was the Celebrant for us!

read more
Nikki is kind, caring, amazing and so extremely helpful. We had no idea what we wanted or how to go about it. Nikki was there every step of the way, to help us and make it such an enjoyable experience.

Everyone has commented on how wonderful our ceremony was and how Nikki had captured us so perfectly. It was so personal, funny and romantic, everything we could have dreamed off and more.

I will recommend Nikki to everyone and hope that one day I will go to a ceremony that Nikki performs so we can see her again.

Thank you so so much for everything Nikki, you gave us memories to last a lifetime and some more. Love Steph and Jack xxx

Linda and James

Nikki was absolutely incredible to work with, we planned our UK wedding last minute from Australia and Nikki was extremely accommodating jumping on zoom calls and delivered everything before promised.

Nikki created a very beautiful, personalised and special ceremony for us, incorporating our personalities and style, we really could not have been happier and I would highly recommend Nikki to anyone looking for a heartfelt special wedding ceremony.

Would we recommend Nikki Wood….Yes in a heartbeat. Nikki is the most amazing soul. Light beams from her.

From beginning to end Nikki was with us every step of the way and crafted our perfect ceremony….Please choose Perfect Words Ceremonies and I promise you will not be disappointed.

Lianna and Patrick

Nikki we wanted to thank you again for making our ceremony so special to us and our guests, you truly are a breath of fresh air and the Tinkerbell of celebrants, so kind and calming, a true blessing! Keep making your magic! With love and bestest wishes Lianna and Pat xxx

Abi and Alex

We couldn’t recommend Nikki highly enough, she has been a crucial part of our wedding journey and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from her. It was the best day of our lives, and Nikki played a huge role in that.

From the moment we met Nikki she made us feel comfortable, spending time to get to know us to ensure she could craft a unique script just for us. We weren’t sure on what style of vows we wanted and Nikki provided many options for inspiration so we could find the perfect fit for us. Many of our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had been part of and how much they learnt about us as a couple, which was really special to us.

read more
Nikki truly went above & beyond, keeping in touch regularly with us, popping in to say hello when we visited the venue, liaising with the venue to ensure the ceremony seating set up and music was correct, and just truly always being there for support.

As we’ve said to Nikki, it’s just goodbye for now, till we find another opportunity to use her celebrant services.

Viks and Farah

What can I say? Working with Nikki was an absolutely brilliant experience!

My wife and I were attempting to marry for the third attempt due to recent world events and were bit dejected and underwhelmed at having to go through the whole process yet again.

However, upon meeting Nikki in our first Zoom Meeting she instantly started to get us excited about our Wedding again! Her process of tailoring our ceremony reminded us of our love story and she was quickly able to come up with an incredible script based on our feedback.

read more
It was so well organised and efficient and when it came to the big day, everything went as smoothly as we hoped and the ceremony was beautiful, emotional and at times funny which all really helped keep our guests engaged and part of the whole event. The feedback from everyone was amazing in particular from both my new in-laws and my own parents on what a great job Nikki did!

I even had a younger cousin wanting to have a similar ceremony for her wedding one day rather than a traditional one!

Both Farah and I thank you dearly Nikki and we would more than delighted to recommend your services to anyone looking for a Wedding Celebrant in the future!

Toby and Jason

Choosing Nikki as our celebrant was undoubtedly one of the best wedding decisions we made!

Getting to know Nikki was really fun and she worked so hard to get to know us to ensure that our wedding script was bespoke and personal. So many guests complimented us on the ceremony and said that it was the best one that they had experienced. So much of this was down to Nikki and she also gave us some wonderful ideas to make it extra special.

To top it all off, Nikki was really great at helping take pressure off us by handling arrangements with the venue and other suppliers.

Nikki, you’re the best!

Bella and Tristan

Nikki was our celebrant for our Wedding ceremony! She was absolutely incredible on the day – she made my husband and I feel at ease, despite standing in front of all our guests, she created a lovely tone and atmosphere and was an amazing cat herder to boot dealing with many moving parts (a huge bridal party, coordinating musical numbers as well as readings etc) ! So so many of our guests commented on how fantastic Nikki was and how much they enjoyed the ceremony – this was all her!

However, the real Nikki magic is behind the scenes. She spent many hours with my husband and I over zoom using a structured, clear but also really fun, process to get to know us and for us to also get down our thoughts and feelings about each other! She wove all these different parts into a wonderful script and story for the ceremony that was really special.

Would recommend her to anyone – her patience approach, kindness and flexibility was wonderful for us as we were trying to plan a wedding throughout the pandemic! She guided us through everything and made it such a wonderful experience. You’ll be so lucky to have her! Xx

Gabriella and Scott

We can’t even put into words how amazing you were Nikki, absolutely everything; the support you’ve give us throughout the journey, your meticulous planning, everything, thank you so much. Xx

Charlotte and James

The moment we met Nikki on Zoom, we knew she was the one we would choose. She listened to us and understood exactly what we wanted. Thank you for writing our perfect love story which I know our guests enjoyed hearing! We are so glad we chose you. Xx

Emma and Tom

Nikki was a great celebrant. We couldn’t have asked for a better service. Nikki was hugely organised, reassuring and helpful, particularly throughout the multiple changes and postponements during the pandemic. She has a lovely way with words to create a personal ceremony that all of our guests loved!

Clive and Lydia

Nikki was a joy to work with! She was professional, diligent, funny & superb at her job.

From the beginning when we were working with her on the ceremony script – to the updates due to the Covid delays – to the day of the wedding – we couldn’t of wished for more! The ceremony was excellent & her relaxed & upbeat manner really made the event go with a bang.

Many of our guests commented on how brilliant she was. Nikki is a pleasure to know & work with – I would recommend her for your wedding ceremony – as she will bring joy to the event. xx

Nikki and Bill

Thank you Thank you Thank you! For conducting a wonderful celebration of our love. You were just fabulous xx

Molly and Tom

Thank you, Nikki, for writing our beautiful wedding ceremony script. I love how personal celebrant led ceremonies can become. You captured the essence of us as a couple so brilliantly and are a very talented writer, along with being a true professional and such a huge help all things wedding related. We are so grateful, and would recommend time and time again xx

Hi Nikki, just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday! The ceremony was so beautiful and everyone didn’t stop telling me how different and intimate it was. ☺️ Thank you for helping us plan parts of our wedding too- you took out a lot of the stress for us!

And finally thank you for our beautiful gift, it was so kind of you and such a lovely keepsake! 😊

Heli and Stewart

Thank you for making yesterday so incredibly special for us. There are not words to describe how thankful we are…The day was perfect 💕

Sorry that timings were all over the place and you had such a long day! It was lovely to spend time with you though and for you to share all of the build-up and fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wine ceremony and to be able to renew our vows. Thank you for preparing such a wonderful script.

After a year of chaos, we finally got the special moment we had waited for. Thank you 🙏 xx

Katherine and Barry

Hi Nikki. We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make our day so so so special. You are a very special lady and so full of love. Your words were so lovely during the ceremony 💝 We’ve opened your beautiful card and gift, thank you, you shouldn’t have. It’s pride of place on our bedroom windowsill

Henil and Dominique

Nikki made our ceremony truly amazing; it was the best day and the best ceremony we could have hoped for! We were blown away by the amount of people that came up to us and said it was the “best wedding that had witnessed”. So many of our guests asked us for her details, which we have more than happily passed on, and they all complimented how personal she made the ceremony and how it stood out from other wedding ceremonies. It was the perfect time and setting to reminisce about how we got together – the rose ceremony was a great addition, that was the part which guests liked the most (from the feedback we have had since). Thank you for you all your guidance and help in the lead up to the wedding, it was invaluable to making the day so special and really helped settle our nerves! We found the questionnaire really facilitated conversations between us about our past, present and future, conversations that we might not have had otherwise.

Thank you again!
Henil and Dominique

Grace and Matt

Nikki recently conducted the ceremony at my Daughter’s wedding. She was amazing, we were so happy with the service. Leading up to their ‘big day’ Nikki really did take the time to get to know my Daughter and Son in Law which really did show when she was sharing their love story, it really was so personal and so beautifully written. So many people mentioned just how beautiful the ceremony was. I cannot recommend Nikki enough, you certainly wouldn’t regret using her.

Amy and Tommy

Nikki was absolutely amazing and I am so glad we chose her as our Celebrant; she told our love story perfectly. Nikki met with us 3 /4 times before our special day and talked us through everything to make sure it was all as it should be and we were happy with everything. Our friends and family have said how beautiful our ceremony was and like no other they have been to before as it was so meaningful.

Thank you so much for everything Nikki we are so grateful xxxx

Jenny and Adrian

Nikki conducted a sand ceremony during our wedding uniting our two families and five children. It was the most poignant and beautiful ceremony and really made the children feel they were at the heart of the day. Nikki spoke so beautifully and her words really summed up how we feel and how integral all the people in our family are. Her words were so reflective of how we feel and there wasn‘t a dry eye in the house. We would recommend anyone to use Nikki. You are definitely in safe hands and she is incredibly intuitive. If children are involved it’s a wonderful way to make them feel a big part of it.

Thanks so much Nikki xxx

Ian and Sue

Thank you so much Nikki for such a wonderfully intimate ceremony to renew our vows. After 50 years of marriage I didn’t think my husband could still surprise me, but boy with yours and my wonderful families help he certainly did. Such a perfect ceremony I cannot thank you enough xx

Nikki and Alex – Baby Naming

Nikki, We felt compelled to write this evening after such a fantastic ceremony you designed for our very special naming day today. You really made the occasion feel happy, relaxed and meaningful. We would highly recommend anyone looking for the perfect celebrant to come and meet with Perfect Words Ceremonies. Thanks again Nikki and Alex

Sam and James – Baby Thanksgiving Ceremony

One of the happiest and most fulfilling days of last year was undoubtedly the thanksgiving ceremony we held for our 10 month old daughter. We didn’t really know what we wanted – just that a traditional christening didn’t feel quite right. Nikki led us through the whole thing, introducing ideas to make the day special and gently encouraging us not to be TOO casual about the whole thing! She gave us the permission to make a bit of a fuss!

Nikki, the ceremony was just perfect. Your script was full of the love and thankfulness we felt. You made it special but not stressful, informal but still important. We feel so lucky to have had you as our celebrant! Thank you. X

Rachel and Nathan

After having to postpone our wedding due to Covid-19, we decided to ask Nikki if she would hold a handfasting ceremony to mark the day we were supposed to get married.

The ceremony was beautiful. The way she wrote our love story and read the poem moved us all to tears. I would highly recommend a ceremony with Nikki. Her energy is wonderful and she really makes the ceremony intimate and loving.

Thank you!
