Sue Gaffey - Independent Modern Celebrant
Simply Unique Ceremonies
As I am going to want to know a lot about you, I should probably tell you a bit about me.
My name is Susan Gaffey, but I prefer to be known as Sue. I live in Warwickshire, I am married and have one child and two dogs.
We love taking them for long walks along the canal or through the woods!
I am an independent modern Celebrant. I have always worked in a customer facing role, supporting people who need help with unfortunate circumstances in their lives. I supported them with information and advice which provided them with the tools and knowledge they needed to move forward with their life.
The reason I chose to become a Celebrant, is that I love people and wanted to hear their stories, about how couples met and fell in love. The love of a couple who have been together for many years and want to renew their vows to celebrate their journey. A first baby, a ceremony to welcome your adopted children or celebrating two families blending and coming together. The life story of a loved one who's life you want to celebrate.
Whatever the occasion , I want to hear about it and of course to help, organise and perform your ceremony!
In my spare time, ( I cant remember when that was) I write children's stories. I have written stories for pre school children and more adventure type stories for junior school aged children.
I also taught basic British Sign language many years ago, but unfortunately, through little or no use of my BSL, I am very rusty!
See what some of my lovely couples have to say..........................
Sue was brilliant from start to finish, this whole event was a surprise for my husband, and she worked with me to ensure the day was delivered nothing short of perfect. We spoke over the phone, email, we met on zoom and in person at the venue. She is so passionate in delivering the script that reflects you as a couple and will work with you to ensure you’re completely 100% happy. The ceremony was delivered perfectly, and the script, vows and certificates were presented to us after which was such a thoughtful gift and forever keep sake.
Thank you sue for everything.

Sue very kindly helped myself and my husband out very last minute with our ceremony. Sue from the beginning was very friendly and helped us put together a ceremony that was tailored to us. We were sent drafts all the way through to make sure we were happy.
Sue kindly offered to do a rehearsal the day before the ceremony which I would highly recommend as none of us knew what we were doing. We were also given a copy of a signed certificate and little gift on the day.
Thank you Sue. X

Sue was brilliant! Listened to exactly what we wanted, included the family and was so warm and friendly.
I couldn’t recommend more!
If you are searching for an officiant you don’t need to keep looking.
Thanks again Sue!!!!
