About Me – Colette Ashby Celebrant


I am absolutely a people person and end up talking to myself if I am on my own for more than about 2 hours! Luckily I have a cat so if everyone is out I can chat to him…

Couples describe me as positive, bubbly, warm and friendly and I love to bring people together to celebrate life’s happy occasions.

Over 20 years experience as a Leadership and Public Speaking Skills Trainer has given me a wealth of knowledge and expertise in engaging groups of people, speaking in public and organising events… perfect preparation for my career as a professional celebrant.

When you engage me as your celebrant you will find me engaging, organised and professional. I love to hear all about you and sprinkle a touch of sparkle into your story!

From the very moment you book me to the time you say ‘I do’ I will work my little socks off to create a lifetime of happy memories for you, your friends and family – the perfect ceremony for you.

I have won many industry Awards, including ‘Most client-focussed celebrant’ and also ‘Celebrant of the Year’, so you’re in safe hands with me!

 I have performed in bands as a singer and currently sing in a choir. My voice coach is a former West End musical star so I set my sights high when it comes to performing duets!

I run a singing group where people come together for an hour a week to sing their hearts out and feel great.

I love to dance and keep fit by doing dance-exercise classes and pilates. Then I go home and have a raspberry vodka with tonic, which contains fruit and is therefore good for you.

I love working with a diverse range of couples to really get to know them and help to make their day special and memorable.

Wedding Ceremony

Colette has been so helpful to myself and my fiance in helping us with our special day. We sadly had to postpone our original date and Colette has really gone the extra mile to make our ceremony meaningful and personal to us. We’re impressed by the way she is so organised and caring and we would definitely recommend her. Thank you Colette!


Naming Ceremony

I have known Colette for over 20 years and am so excited that we booked her for our granddaughter’s naming ceremony. Her bubbly personality and attention to detail make her the perfect choice for any celebration.
