About Celebrant Gwen Downs

Celebrant Gwen Downs specializes in creating fun, lighthearted weddings that have couples and guests saying, "it was the best ceremony they've ever been a part of!" With just the right balance between cheer and tradition, not only will your ceremony include all the elements you want, but it will also feature the story of how you and your fiancée "ended up here today." That means rather than a formality, your nuptials will actually be one of the most fun and entertaining parts of your day!

Services Offered

Celebrant Gwen Downs officiates custom, microwedding, elopement and legal signing ceremonies for couples. This includes civil unions, vow renewals, as well as single-religion, non-religious, and interfaith ceremonies. Although she currently works in the Raleigh, North Carolina region, this officiant is licensed to perform weddings in all 50 states as well as Washington, D.C. She allows couples to read customized vows during their ceremony, and include any other wedding customs they would like to have. She performs LBGTQ ceremonies and believes love is love. This officiant typically keeps the ceremony under 30 minutes. The length of the ceremony can be determined by the couple’s preference. This officiant can work with couples of any religion, from Catholic, Jewish, and Presbyterian couples to agnostic and non-denominational duos. She even officiates for pagan, Taoist, Earth-based, and Hindu couples, among others.
