About Me

Wendi Surtees-Smith is a full-service Civil Celebrant based in Liverpool, also serving Merseyside, Cheshire and South Hams, Devon. Wendi has recently won 'Regional Best Newcomer' in The 2019 Wedding Industry Awards.

I was born in Liverpool, a stone’s throw from the magnificent River Mersey. I have lived and worked in Liverpool for most of my life.


I have taught in both mainstream and Special Educational Needs schools for over 20 years. I have a naturally compassionate and warm personality.


I love my job and, as a celebrant, I bring the interpersonal skills I have developed over the years and use them to help my clients navigate their way through getting the best ceremony for themselves or their loved one.


Losing both of my parents within days of each other gave me an insight into what a bereaved person or family may need during a deeply difficult time.


As a celebrant, I have the privilege and honour of creating and delivering personalised ceremonies for significant life events, leaving people with memories that they can cherish forever.

I pride myself on my highly customised, unique and personalised services. I’m here to make sure that each and every ceremony I’m involved with is inspiring, extraordinary, and unforgettable. 

I provide a service that is meaningful, personal, and professional with a humanist approach. 

I am an official member of The Celebrant Directory. the Institute of Professional Celebrants and received training via Civil Ceremonies Ltd.
