Hello, my name is Wendi Surtees-Smith and I’m an Independent Civil Celebrant. I’m based in Liverpool and I also cover Merseyside, Cheshire and Devon. I conduct non-religious and creative services that reflect the beliefs, personality and lifestyle of you and your loved ones.
Wendi Surtees-Smith is a full-service Civil Celebrant based in Liverpool, also serving Merseyside, Cheshire and South Hams, Devon. Wendi has recently won 'Regional Best Newcomer' in The 2019 Wedding Industry Awards.
I was born in Liverpool, a stone’s throw from the magnificent River Mersey. I have lived and worked in Liverpool for most of my life.
I have taught in both mainstream and Special Educational Needs schools for over 20 years. I have a naturally compassionate and warm personality.
I love my job and, as a celebrant, I bring the interpersonal skills I have developed over the years and use them to help my clients navigate their way through getting the best ceremony for themselves or their loved one.
Losing both of my parents within days of each other gave me an insight into what a bereaved person or family may need during a deeply difficult time.
Stunning, memorable and unique.
Gone are the days of one-size fits all. I believe that weddings should be about personal choice, inspired by the couple, their story and their life together.
No two relationships are the same and every couple’s journey of love is unique and special. Your wedding is a celebration of your journey so far as well as your continuing adventure in life together.
A popular growing choice amongst couples planning their wedding today is to opt for an independent celebrant to officiate the ceremony.
With so much choice out there to personalise every aspect of your special day, have you thought about how you’d like to personalise your ceremony?
My individually tailored ceremonies are created and delivered with genuine warmth and feeling. They are designed closely with the couple to reflect their individual needs and personalities.
