Barbara Exley - Celebrant

Welcome to my website. My name is Barbara and I am an Independent Celebrant.  I hold a Diploma in both Wedding and Funeral Celebrancy and am a Member of the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants.

I set up my company in 2014 and have since created and been a part of many beautiful Weddings, Vow renewals, Welcoming and Naming ceremonies and numerous Funerals.

I love my role as a Celebrant as it fulfils a passion of mine - meeting, helping and supporting people. It also means I share in some of life’s most precious moments and momentous events. It’s a journey I feel privileged to be a part of.   

If you are planning a special celebration and don’t know where to start then I can help. I offer a friendly and professional service and have a wealth of experience and resources. I am also a Certified Wedding Planner and can help point you in the direction of some wonderful venues and wedding professionals.  

Whatever the occasion your ceremony will be truly individual and tailored to you.

I am based in Worcestershire but as long as I am available distance is not a barrier.  I offer a flexible service doing as little or as much as you wish. The choice is entirely yours.  

If you are interested in any of my services then please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to answer any questions and will help you decide if I am the right choice for your ceremony.

I highly recommend Barbara. She did our wedding and did more than we could ever have expected. She was awesome.

- Lucy and Tim

Thank you so much for being part of our day and officiating for us. It was so wonderful.

- Emily

Thank you so much for conducting our wedding. We were both truly moved by the service and the ceremony will be a treasured memory when we are old and grey. Your personal touches were very thoughtful and lovely. You made the whole service flow and we loved every part of it from the ring blessing, the readings, our vows and of course the Handfasting. It was the first time our guests had attended a Celebrant wedding and everyone thought it was a truly moving and wonderful experience.

– Anthony and Linda

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. The vows were absolutely fantastic and it goes without saying we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you again for making it so special. You got 100% approval rating from the guests.

Thank you for the amazing support you gave us during the most difficult time of our lives. You captured Dad’s life so perfectly and he would have been so proud to have heard the tribute you created for him. We shed happy tears on the day remembering him as the wonderful person he was – bless you. 

- Pearl and Don

Dear Barbara – I wanted to write a personal eulogy to my dear friend but didn’t know where to start but thank goodness I found you! I couldn’t have done it justice and I am so grateful to you for creating such a beautiful tribute. There were so many compliments that in the end I had to admit I didn’t write it myself! I can’t thank you enough – my best wishes to you.
