Neil Taylor, the Celebrant

My wife and I (now with 2 grown up children) still look back on our wedding day as special and memorable. I understand how important the day is and even after over 500 ceremonies (weddings, namings, funerals) I feel honoured to be asked to help create such a day for others.

I have received many heartfelt letters of thanks (see below.)

During early conversations I try to establish exactly what kind of ceremony is required, considering the people involved and the venue. I have conducted weddings in many different venues e.g. hotel, restaurant, pub, garden, hill top, farmer’s field.

With so much experience I am able to offer lots of suggestions and ideas; for readings, music etc. After, we work together, through email and further meetings, to refine and perfect the script.

With many years experience as a teacher and actor I am able to project my voice, and establish rapport with an audience.

I have a working knowledge of French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese and have conducted weddings in France, Spain, Poland and Portugal.

Some extracts from letters:

It was a very special day and we feel very lucky to have created our own unique wedding.

Thank you for such a beautiful, personal, memorable ceremony. So many people have commented on the magical atmosphere you created.

Thank you for the masterly way you conducted the ceremony. We have received many compliments on how real and heartfelt it was.

People are still talking about it a month after.

Thank you for all the hard work both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. You were a pillar of calm for us and delivered the most wonderful ceremony. An absolute success, enjoyable and memorable.

I live in Newbury and conduct humanist weddings, namings and funerals there and nearby eg Reading, Oxford, Marlborough, Basingstoke.
