The Slaughters manor House, Gloucestershire | May 2019
We were not sure about a celebrant initially when we decided to get married thinking we might prefer one of our friends, but after meeting Lynn for a chat down the pub and understanding actually everything that she would be doing and how many personal things we could include in the ceremony we thought having Lynn at our wedding would save us so much stress and make our day so special and it was certainly true! She helped us throughout our planning process and created a ceremony so personal to us that we wouldn't have been able to do and on the day it did feel like a friend was doing our ceremony- aww! Thank you so much Lynn!
Old Luxtors Barn, Henley-on-Thames | May 2019
I cannot recommend Lynn enough - from the start she was so wonderful, so eager to get to know us and understand us in order to make our ceremony the personal and loving celebration that we were after.
We live far from our venue, so Lynn skyped with us and drove miles to meet us for coffee in order to make sure that by the time our big day came around, she felt like an old friend.
Every single guest commented on how beautiful our ceremony was, and how well Lynn seemed to know us in her speech. It was the most magical day, and Lynn made it even more special.
If you're after a gorgeous ceremony that will make even the most hardened of your guests cry happy tears, please choose Lynn Tierney for your celebrant.
Thank you so much, Samantha. It is an honour to have come to know you and Ellen so well and to have you think of me as a friend. And such a great privilege to lead your wedding ceremony.
Boars Hill, Oxfordshire | May 2019
From the moment we met her we knew she was going to be the right fit for us...It started with a coffee and a real giggle, Lynn is a warm and bubbly person and has a great way of making you feel special, she is truly interested in your relationship, it makes all the difference!
Lynn spent time getting to know us and wrote the most beautiful and personal ceremony, she also encouraged us to add more or make any changes we wanted to give us our dream ceremony.
Lynn helped make our day extra special, we wanted a fun, honest and loving ceremony that reflected our love, fun & relationship, she helped create this beautifully. All our guests said it was the BEST ceremony EVER and that it was PERFECT for us!!!!
We would highly recommend to any future Bride & Groom looking for the PERFECT wedding celebrant.
Thank you Lynn for making our ceremony the most incredible & magical memory, it’s one that will live on forever, not only for us both but for all our guests. You will always have a special place in our hearts. We really can’t thank you enough!!!
Oxfordshire | May 2019
Lynn was the PERFECT choice for our Wedding Ceremony!!
Evenley Wood Garden | May 2019
So we found Lynn online, after falling out of contact with our original celebrant. And what a blessing in disguise it was! Right from the get go Lynn put us at our ease! As we obviously had no idea what to expect. Our first meeting what at our home over a cup of tea, and instantly felt like we'd know each other for ages!
She walked us through the planning stage, asking all the right questions and generally finding out what we wanted when even we weren't sure! Neither of us are religious, and were looking for a simple but heartfelt ceremony that captured our personalities. And that is exactly what Lynn delivered! Just the right amount of humour and a big old dollop of heart.
She was also absolutely brilliant on the day, taking charge from a pretty nervous groom! And making sure the ushers and everyone else knew their jobs.
We cant say thank you enough for making our most special of days go without a hitch.
Anyone looking for the perfect celebrant, I'll say one thing! Look no further!! Shes here!!!
Thank you so much, Lucy and Jon, for these kind words. I especially loved providing that "big old dollop of heart" - classic! Thank you again for the honour of allowing me to play my part in your big day!
Yarnton Manor | September 2017
Lynn led our wedding ceremony in September 2017. From early on we loved her sense of humour, her energy, and the fact that she was open to accommodating even our maddest ideas! We wanted a mixture of traditions and cultures, and she did a great job of researching ideas and suggesting how to incorporate them……..She led the perfect ceremony – it was relaxed, honest and full of humour, but solemn and respectful at the right moments. She managed to express why we loved each other and were getting married in words that we could not have said ourselves, and told some great stories along the way (and gazumped the speeches!). The ceremony had exactly the warm, fun and quirky feel we had hoped for, and so many people told us how lovely it was, that it fitted our personalities really well and set a great atmosphere for the rest of the day. Lynn did an amazing job of creating something perfect for us, but I get the impression she is very adaptable and able to bring out whatever suits the couple she is with. We would happily recommend her to others getting married.
Thank you, Lali. It was an honour to create your ceremony. I loved having to get to know about wedding traditions from the Hindu culture to include in your ceremony. The mix made it unique indeed.
Ipsden Farm Barn | July 2016
From the moment we met Lynn we knew she was the celebrant for us. She made the most of every meeting to really get to know the two of us and our story. We felt she really thought about our individual style and came up with great suggestions and ideas for us to include in the ceremony. We were over the moon to receive the first draft of the script which was perfect! She even wrote our vows for us and we didn’t have to change a word- she just got us.
Lynn was such a calming influence on the day itself as well. Despite a few hiccups (the wind, aeroplanes overhead and an unavailable mic stand!) she breezed through the ceremony without a fault and added her own warmth and humour to the script which really helped set the tone for the day. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lynn to anyone looking for a celebrant – just meet her once for a coffee and you’ll know what we mean!
Thank you Lynn for putting our story and feelings into such wonderful words to help make the day even more special – it’s one we will never forget!
Bignell Park Hotel, Oxfordshire | June 2016
Lynn officiated at my two daughters' double wedding blessing on Saturday 25th June 2016 and we couldn't have wished for more. My daughters and their grooms were delighted and Lynn's summing up of the two couples' journeys to where they are now in their lives was perfect. A mixture of humour and pathos which suited the occasion. Thank you Lynn for the great job you did, we would recommend you highly to anyone.
Lynn Tierney Ceremonies
The Tythe barn, Launton | September 2016
Lynn conducted our wedding ceremony on 4th September 2016 and did a wonderful job. She was incredibly accommodating and supportive, helping us to create a beautiful ceremony which incorporated our personal beliefs and brought together both the story of our personal journey as a couple and the more formal aspects of a spiritualised service we were looking for. For anyone looking for a ceremony, like us, that is somewhere in between a church wedding and a civil ceremony, a celebrant is the perfect solution to create the ceremony you really want and we would highly recommend Lynn to others. She was warm, personable, professional and organised, and conducted a ceremony that was exactly what we had hoped for and envisaged for our special day!
Evenley Wood Gardens, Northants | September 2017
My husband and I cannot speak highly enough of Lynn and ceremony she created for us. It was so personal, unique and magical that many people asked if we knew Lynn already due to the way she talked about our relationship and captured it so perfectly. Lynn managed just the right balance of emotion and humour which made it so engaging throughout.
Lynn was a joy to work with and, due to the short time scale of our wedding, had to chase us a fair bit, but was so patient and understanding in doing so. Lynn was fun, caring and lovely to work with.
We had countless guests comment on the ceremony and say it brought them to tears (coming from a very unemotional family!) and we will never forget it. When it started raining (heavily!) halfway through the ceremony, Lynn was not fazed and did not let it affect our ceremony at all. We really feel that the ceremony set the tone for the whole day and cannot thank Lynn enough!
The Stone Barn, Upper Windrush, Glocs. | July 2017
Where do we begin! Words truly can't express how grateful and blown away we were with Lynn's contribution to our wedding. Lynn is a kind, caring and thoughtful woman. We felt connected to her from the very first Skype call all those months ago. The ceremony she put together was truly heartfelt and personal and will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Lynn brought a human energy to our day that was priceless and really captured the essence of who we are. Many of our guests said that it was the most authentic and entertaining they had ever witnessed. For this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To anyone reading this, look no further, you have found your celebrant! We will miss you Lynn, be happy and successful. Love always, Naoise and Cam xxx
The Tythe Barn, Launton | July 2017
We were recommended Lynn Tierney Ceremonies by our venue and as soon as we saw her website we couldn't wait to meet her. We were taking a gamble with two families who would probably have preferred a religious ceremony but boy were we proved right! Lynn's dedication to getting to know us, what we wanted and what would suit the venue was second to none. She helped us to organise all the necessary seamlessly and took the time to stay in touch throughout the process. The ceremony she crafted was so thoughtful, personal and well written. It was such a relief to be able to relax on the day, knowing she had everything in hand - she could not have been a more reassuring presence. She put everyone at ease and allowed us to include exactly what we wanted. We have had such lovely compliments from people who joined us who agreed she pitched everything perfectly and brought genuine warmth to our day. Thank you Lynn for all your hard work, we will treasure our copy of the ceremony and always remember the way you exceeded all our expectations.
Meadowbrook Farm, Thame | August 2017
From our very first meeting, through to helping us with our vows, the script, the order of the day - recommending readings - and of course the obvious stuff you want from someone who'll be hosting your ceremony - a positive attitude, beaming smile, superb diction and great public speaking ability - Lynn was simply fantastic.
Whilst my family is rather alternative, the bride's were much more traditional. Going with a celebrant was not I'd say a risk, but bound to come under far more scrutiny than a religious ceremony would have. On the other hand, there was simply no way I was going to go down the religious route personally! But the point is, people were sceptical, but to a man every piece of feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. People loved the ceremony, and it wouldn't have been possible without Lynn.
Going through her questionnaires initially to help us write up how exactly we met, and fell in love, was lovely, and that it was so well reflected in the final script is a brilliant reflection of the personal touch Lynn brings to proceedings.
All I would say, is if you're considering a Celebrant (or even if you weren't before), and stumble across Lynn and this page, book her immediately. She will make your day great, and you'll love it.
Thanks Lynn for being such a brilliant part of our day
Dave and Naomi.

It is said that “Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite” When you choose me as your celebrant, then your love story will be my favourite, your story will be the only one that matters. I pride myself in being able to quickly distill the very essence of what you want for your special day. One of my earliest brides summed it up when she said, “From that first cup of coffee, Lynn just got us!” And from the very outset, my brain will jump into action, recalling, researching, sharing, agreeing or discarding ideas that would be perfect for you. It is my mission to elevate your ceremony, your actual ceremony, to become the beating heart of your special day. In years to come your guests will need to look at photos of your dress, your cake, that first dance to jog their memories. But memories of the words you spoke and the symbolic elements they witnessed - they will stay with them for a long, long time..
And also, if this is important to you, a recent groom wrote that I have “a positive attitude, beaming smile, superb diction and great public speaking ability”. So, the all-round package, then.
