About Celebrant Gwen Downs

Looking for an unboring ceremony for your Raleigh wedding? Want to be thrilled by your ceremony and have your guests raving about it? Gwen specializes in creating fun, lighthearted weddings that have couples and guests saying it was the best ceremony they've ever seen. With just the right balance between cheer and tradition, not only will your ceremony include all (or none!) of the elements you want, but it will also feature the story of how you and your fiancee "ended up here today." So rather than just a formality, your nuptials will actually be one of the most fun and entertaining parts of your day!

Services Offered

Gwen will customize every element of your ceremony with your collaboration, assist you on the traditional elements you'd like to include, write your love story, ask members of your family and friends for their input, and tell it the way it happened to the delight of everyone in attendance. You and your guests will remember feeling riveted, engaged, and moved by your wedding ceremony for years to come.

Gwen serves many religious affiliations as well as non-religious, interfaith, and spiritual-but-not-religious couples. Her process includes a no-obligation consultation, 1-hour wedding workshop, unlimited script revisions, open editing process, continuous communication via phone/email, complete rehearsal, travel fees, legal filling of your marriage in North Carolina, a back-up officiant (just in case), and a guarantee that you'll absolutely love your ceremony.

Visit Gwen's website at RaleighOfficiant.com for more info and pricing. Last minute requests welcome!

    Awesome Elopement!

    My new husband and I had such a wonderful time with Celebrant Gwen Downs! We eloped and it was amazing to have such a small personal ceremony. No worries, no stress, just a whole lot of love!

    Our wedding was extremely last minute (like 2 weeks of planning last minute) and Gwen was SO flexible and understanding. She really made this day easy for me and my husband and in the end was the best day of my life. Thank you!!!!
