  So, are you looking for a special English Celebrant to create and conduct your ceremony abroad; to give you both the peace of mind that when you say “I do” you  have an experience to treasure for the rest of your lives.

A ceremony you and guests will be talking about and  remember for years to come.

Well look no further. With a wealth of experience in making dreams like yours come true, let cloud 9ceremonies create a special ceremony for you both.  Say yes to me sharing and creating the next chapter of your lives together in paradise!


Glenda says “My desire is to get to know you both and bring your expressions of love and commitment to each other and life a reality. Let me work with you both, to bring a balance of   devotion, sincerity, humour, elements of fun and moments of reflection, right into the heart of  your ceremony. It will be created in a way that you are both comfortable with and reflects your spiritual beliefs, cultural backgrounds and family wishes. All delivered with an English accent that all your guests will be able to understand! “

Whether your ceremony is planned for many or a few, I will ensure you are at the heart of it.

The  destination and planning of your wedding day will be up to you to decide.


CLOUD 9 CEREMONIES offer you some very attractive OPTIONS

WORLDWIDE or USA SPECIFIC or BARBADOS are currently favored destinations. 

Many couples are choosing destination weddings for the simple reason they represent such good value for money and are generally more intimate. The decision to marry outside of the U.K often causes a dilemma for couples who wish to have a legal British Marriage License. 

Another dilemma not immediately realized is that the person appointed to conduct the ceremony may not have English as their first language and could be a religious minister.


I can offer a simple solution

I strongly suggest a couple marry legally in the UK, having a very simple registration office service possibly in their lunch hour! No need even to tell anyone you are doing it. Then plan your destination wedding with your selected family and friends joining you.

We then work together, to create a truly personal and meaningful ceremony for you both which I will deliver for you at your destination venue.


YOU SAID “YES” and that is WONDERFUL now this is what I offer to support you before YOU SAY “I DO”.

 What Now?

Selecting your English speaking Independent Celebrant is a very  personal decision. As the celebrant performing your wedding ceremony, I will be an integral part of  your wedding day and will set the tone of your entire day that follows.

Your first step in the journey to an amazing celebration has started…. if you choose me to be your celebrant, I will be delighted to hear from you.


    Email me to check my availability and secure your date in my diary with a booking fee.   Subject: Destination Wedding/Barbados/USA/World/






    Send out your invitations as soon as you can to let your guests know when and where to join you! Early bookings reduce many prices not just flights and accommodation.




A wedding ceremony planned in the UK will offer you complete peace of mind.

You will most probably be in control of almost every aspect of your destination wedding planning; flights, hotel, food, flowers, decor and of course your invited guest list. However, your wedding ceremony, wherever it is held, will most certainly not be in your control.


Your overseas marriage service will most probably be conducted by a local person in the country of destination. This may be a religious minister, clerk of court, notary, judge or officiant. You may only get to speak to them on the day of your wedding. You may not even know the content of the ceremony!

Is it is essential that you and your fiancé feel totally satisfied and comfortable with the person who will play such a vital part in your ceremony?

If you pre-book me as your English Celebrant for your destination wedding, then all worries and concerns about ceremony content, will be eliminated.

You can be involved as much or as little as you like when it comes to making choices and decisions about your ceremony content and the wording used.

Each couple will be seeking a different experience when it comes to ceremony content. Whether you are seeking a celebrant to tell your love story or talk at length about romance and love, or the art of a good marriage.

Your wedding ceremony is the sole reason everyone has come together.

Planning the reception can be very exciting but finding the right wedding celebrant will make the most important part of the wedding, your ceremony, all the more special, memorable and sincere.

By choosing Glenda to be your overseas celebrant, you will have total peace of mind. She will greet you when you arrive at your destination, offering a familiar and friendly face to support you on your wedding day.
