About Bill Swift

My name is Bill Swift; I’m a trained and accredited humanist wedding celebrant with a professional background in mental health care. I’m based in beautiful Devon not too far from Exeter, Totnes and Plymouth and am happy to travel as far as you need me to for your ceremony.

I am someone who enjoys connecting with people, sharing their emotional highs and lows and helping them to love and understand themselves. I feel that the relationships that we develop with one another are not only key to defining who we are as individuals, but are also amongst the most magical and enjoyable aspects of being human.

This is the reason I love being a celebrant; weddings allow you to rejoice in the most exciting parts of your lives; sharing your hopes and promises for the future while bringing everyone together to experience that with you.


“Bill’s ceremony was enchanting; it was so authentic and showed a real understanding of his couple. Bill has a unique take on love which is just great to listen to.” – Steph


My hope as your wedding celebrant will always be to help you create your wedding in a way that is not only unique to your own tastes and style, but also in a way that reflects you as a couple; bringing a sense of who you are as individuals, how your relationship thrives and how you make each other stronger into the ceremony. I enjoy putting the personal touches into weddings, helping you to not only share an honest and beautiful account of your love, but to celebrate it with feeling.


“Bill’s writing is spectacular, he is able to paint a picture with words in a way that gives you goose bumps and brings a tear to your eye. His delivery is serene and he exudes a quiet confidence that has everyone hanging on every word.”  – Prudence


So if you are hoping to create a wedding ceremony that is personal, bespoke and memorable then please do contact me for a discussion with no commitment.
