My name is Mary-Kate Crooks. I’m a wedding Celebrant based in Torbay, Devon,UK. I’m a published poet and a writer too. @Love Life Poetry by MK AC Nevin-Crooks.

You don’t have to just choose a civil or a religious wedding ceremony these are not the only options you have.

Why not hire a celebrant? This is an amazing way to personalise your special day with a ceremony that’s truly unique to you and your partner. To make your ceremony personal to you both.

Hiring me as your celebrant is a fantastic way to put your own stamp on the wedding ceremony. I can make your big day unique, individual, and bespoke for you as a couple.

I love planning and coming up with new creative ways to help celebrate their wedding or civil partnerships.

I’m fully insured and an ICPC trained celebrant. I can write a personalised poem for your big day.

I can include religious/spiritual and other rituals into the ceremonies, making them truly sincere, romantic and elegant.

I want you to feel happy and relaxed on your wonderful day. When you place your trust in me all will run smoothly, and we can work together to make it a day to remember.

I’ve tonnes of ideas to make things special for… Ideas for ring warming where all your guests bless the rings with kind thoughts and love to make all your guests feel like they are helping your married life onto the correct road for good luck and happiness.

Maybe you’re combining families and would like to do a sand ceremony for your children to feel engaged and part of your big day?

Or you would like your pet to have a starring role on your happy day? Dress your doggy up and make him/her your doggy of honour!

There are so many ideas I must help you plan and organise the best day of your life. So, you’re able to make happy and enduring memories for years to come.

If you need a celebrant who is warm hearted, organised and can make your ceremony magical please contact me and I will begin planning your special day.

I’m able to do a writing course for you and your partner to write your wedding vows. I used to be a lecturer and a teacher. I can help you.

Thank you Mary-Kate for helping us to write our oaths. For being so kind and caring towards us both. You knew we were shy but you always had ideas to throw our way.

We loved the romantic wedding poem you wrote specifically for us. Happy we chose a celebrant but delighted it was you.

You put so much of your heart and soul into it and never stopped communicating with us.
Joe and me are touched by your never ending dedication. You made sure we had a perfect day. All the little things you did and helped us with. 💛

We will be in touch when we do our vow renewals in ten years!

Mary is one of the kindest, warmest, most professional people I have ever worked with. Whatever your needs, she will provide the perfect service. Highly recommend.

You will not meet anyone with a heart bigger than Mary and her way with words is simply wonderful. She cares deeply about her couples and families and will always ensure your ceremony is what and how you’d wish for it to be. Highly recommended.
