A wedding celebrant from Long Itchington is the toast of the county after winning a national title for the second year running.
Judy Mansfield who runs Cherish-Ceremonies, was named the winner of the Celebrant and Toastmaster category at a National Customer Service Awards Ceremony in London.
As well as designing and delivering wedding celebration ceremonies for couples in Warwickshire, Judy has also worked with people from as far away as Australia, Canada, and China, who have come to the county to tie the knot in a destination wedding.
Judy said: “We have such beautiful locations in this area and people love the architecture of our historic venues, as well as the amazing Warwickshire scenery”.
The awards run by Oxfordshire-based Guides for Brides, were made based on independent testimonials from couples using her services.
Judy says that her previous career as a civil servant in Whitehall gave her extensive experience in writing and public speaking
She added: “Just a few years ago, I had no idea what a celebrant was but this doesn’t feel remotely like work as I love it so much.”
