Your wedding is an expression of who you are as a couple and deserves to be exactly what you want it to be. I am an ordained, nondenominational, interfaith minister who would be honored to create, or help you create, your perfect wedding ceremony. Soon after you contact me, we will arrange a personal meeting to become acquainted and start to create your ceremony. We will stay in touch until your ceremony is finished to your total satisfaction. Since 2001, I have been writing and officiating specialty weddings including spiritual, religious, civil, Celtic, handfasting, and other unique celebrations. I also offer standard versions, which we can easily personalize. I organize rehearsals and joyfully officiate at ceremonies. After the wedding, I will give you the booklet from which I prepared and performed your ceremony. Read less

Bonnie handled our wedding professionally and gracefully. It was obvious she had experience as a spiritual leader and support, especially when things got stressful planning the wedding. She was always responsive to my emails, and changed our ceremony details shortly before the wedding with ease and promptness. We were grateful that while planning a wedding was stressful, working with Bonnie as the officiant was not one of them. I highly recommend her services to anyone that needs an officiant as she is open to your spiritual requests as well as being professional and prompt.

Bonnie McCarthy of Ceremonies From The Heart was the officiant at my daughter's wedding. Right from the beginning I found Bonnie to be open, flexible and helpful. She contacted my daughter by phone because my daughter lives out west. She helped my daughter and son- in-law to plan a lovely ceremony which was meaningful to them. I would highly recommend Bonnie as a wedding officiant.

Rev. Bonnie was amazing! We wanted a short and sweet ceremony that was not very religious, and didn't have any ideas besides that. She helped us come up with a beautiful ceremony, gave us suggestions when needed and welcomed our ideas and incorporated everything perfectly! She even came to our apartment to meet with us in a snow storm and possibly loved our dog almost as much as we do! :) She even found us a reading called "Why falling in love is like owning a dog", once she saw how important Bella is to us. She is so down to earth, nice, friendly, and flexible! It was a wonderful experience working with her!

Our ceremony was beautiful, and Bonnie was an amazing officiant! We booked her services over a year in advance and she made sure to contact us multiple times prior to the wedding to finalize things. We were at a loss for what to write for vows and she helped us create personalized vows that really spoke to who we were as individuals and a couple. Most people spend so much time thinking about the reception that they don't really pay attention to the most important part of the day, the ceremony. We wanted someone who cared about us a couple and we found her.

We are an older couple (50's) who married for the first time. We are not the most conventional or traditional individuals with a very diverse cross section of family and friends. Due to this, we needed to locate an officiant who would meet our unique needs.

When we first met with Reverend McCarthy she inquired about us in order to get to know us and to be better equipped to officiate. After a mere five minutes with her, we both knew instinctively and without discussing our meeting together, that she was perfect for us. She listened to our answers as we responded. Note: There is a very large difference between hearing someone talk and actually listening to what is being conveyed. She worked with us in order to ensure our ceremony was what we envisioned it would be and it was.

Our ceremony was absolutely perfect! There wasn't a dry eye in the Cathedral and that includes my husband and I. We can not say enough good comments about her. So, if you want a ceremony that will be long remembered and talked about for years to come, you will want to engage her services. We would absolutely use her again but have no intention of ever marrying again. This is a once in a lifetime marriage for us sealed by the best of all possible officiants. Thank you so very, very much Reverend McCarthy.

Is there a way we could give 6 stars?

We had our wedding at my vegetable farm, Tracie's Community Farm in Fitzwilliam NH. Bonnie was perfect from the beginning. Willing to work with us with what we wanted to reflect who we were and quick to respond to our questions. Bonnie, thank you again for everything. It truly was the perfect ceremony for us and I know spirit was there and strong. The whole night flowed perfectly and was above and beyond my wildest dreams.

Bonnie was absolutely incredible from the moment we met her at a bridal expo. We immediately "clicked" with her, and she was professional from the very beginning. She worked with us the entire time to get our ceremony just right, and just the way we wanted it. She took into consideration all opinions and suggestions and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure all of our questions were answered.
She also did an amazing job at the rehearsal, weathering the COLD, rainy day to make sure everyone knew what to do for our big day. She never once complained, and she made it FUN, all the while keeping us on track and getting us through the rehearsal efficiently so we could get back inside where it was warm!
On our wedding day, she was INCREDIBLE. She officiated perfectly, was more than willing to work with the photographers and DJ to make sure everything went off without a hitch. And, when I forgot to get her the marriage license, she trekked into our venue and grabbed it, so I was able to stay outside for pictures/celebrate the day and not have to worry about it.
Bonnie goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. She has a wonderful sense of humor and is so easy to get along with. I would hands down recommend her to absolutely everyone!

We contacted Bonnie after learning that the JP scheduled for our daughters wedding could not officiate due to a severe back injury. Bonnie was highly recommended by Tastefully Wright, the wonderful lady who created the wedding cake. We found her to be incredibly fun to work with, very focused and she brought a layer of calm to our initially frantic bride and groom (no fun finding out your JP isn't available less than 2 weeks before the wedding). The ceremony was very tailored and personal to our family and Bonnie gave the bride and groom the opportunity to make it exactly as they chose. She communicated with all of us frequently and arrived very early to get to know each of us and make us comfortable.
On short notice, Bonnie drove a great distance to officiate this wedding and did so with absolutely no hesitation. All of us just loved her and are very grateful for her guidance and friendship.

We highly recommend Bonnie for any occasion and look forward to sharing future events with her.

For a number of reasons, we ended up having to find an officiant for our wedding with less than 4 weeks left until the big day. We were very concerned that we were going to have to settle for a justice of the peace, which neither of us really wanted. What we did want was someone that could perform a non-denominational, Christian oriented wedding. Some searches on the web led us to Bonnie's website, and all the information on her site then led us to think she would be a perfect fit for us. Of course, we figured there was no way that someone with such good reviews would be available this soon before the wedding.

We contacted Bonnie on Labor Day Monday via email. She responded within a couple hours to let us know that she did indeed have our date open...the only one she had open in September! By the time the day was over, we had exchanged several emails and had a phone conversation with Bonnie, and we were all set...all this on a holiday!

Moving on to the days leading up tot he ceremony...Bonnie created us a great ceremony that we had to do very little to no editing after she sent it to us, proving to us that she did a tremendous job of understanding what we wanted from the ceremony with just a few emails and one phone conversation. For the rehearsal, she was on time (early actually!) and very well prepared. She did a great job helping to run the rehearsal, and even noticed some things that the coordinators at our venue didn't.

On the day of the ceremony, she was again very punctual and organized. We had to make some last minute changes due to someone involved in the ceremony being late, and Bonnie had no problem dealing with those changes. She then proceeded to do a great job with the ceremony, and everything went exactly as we wanted it to.

So to sum it up...Bonnie is a true professional, and we would recommend her to anyone!

Bonnie did a fantastic job officiating our wedding! Because our wedding was held about 9 hours from where we currently live, It was hard for my partner and I to put our trust in officiant that we would not be meeting until the day before our wedding! Once speaking with Bonnie over the phone she immediately put my nerves at ease and I knew right away she was trustworthy and would do a great job, which she did! She even gave us a little keepsake of what was said at the wedding ceremony! We are very happy with our choice of choosing Bonnie!

Bonnie McCarthy was the officiant of my wedding on 6/29/13, she did a wonderful job all around. She had our service written up only a few days after meeting with her for the first time. Bonnie got to know us so she could make our ceremony as personal as we wanted. She was also very flexible schedule wise and made the whole process stress free, which was so great as everyone knows how stressful weddings can be! All in all we are so happy we chose Bonnie to marry us, thanks to her our ceremony was perfect! My husband and I highly recommend her to everyone.

Bonnie was wonderful! She showed up to the rehearsal early and helped us with the organizing of the place cards. She was both helpful and delightful to work with and answered all my questions (there were many!!).
It was really helpful that she went to the food tasting at the venue so that we could meet her on the spot. I got many compliments on how great she was, and how the words of her ceremony were perfect for us. Everything went smoothly, despite the fact that we had to rehearse indoors for a possible outdoor ceremony (which did happen). I would recomment Bonnie to anyone needing and officiant for their wedding!

I wish there were more than 5 stars here to rate Bonnie!!! She put together such a wonderful, lovely ceremony that was a direct reflection of ourselves and family unit that 5 stars just aren't enough praise to give!!!
I had no idea what was involved in planning a ceremony, how the parties in the wedding were supposed to walk, or what order they were supposed to be in or the set up of the alter. She was very responsive to ALL million of the emails I sent, ha ha, and helpful with suggestions and without her help we would have been lost!!
After the ceremony she gave us a beautiful keepsake book, for us to cherish forever!
I would definitely recommend Bonnie to all!!!!

Bonnie was fantastic from start to finish. She was extremely helpful in incorporating my family's traditional Catholic beliefs with my husband's less religious beliefs. She wrote a meaningful ceremony with many drafts that she would send us after we would request even the smallest change.
She was very flexible in meeting with us and walked us through everything from the rehearsal to the actual ceremony.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend or family member looking for a true professional and kind-hearted person to make their wedding day one of a kind.

Bonnie was a joy for us to work with and officiate our wedding. Of all the different type of vendors a wedding involved, we had difficulty finding the right officiant - that is until we met Bonnie. She is a very nice person overall and genuinely seemed invested in helping us with our wedding. She was very flexible and easy to reach whenever we had questions. She arrived promptly for both the rehearsal and the wedding... driving all the way down from NH to MA for the rehearsal! At this point in our planning when we met Bonnie we were already squeezed on budgets and we were pleased to hear she was affordable for us too! (We had previously met another vendor that wanted to charge us $3,000 to officiant our wedding!). Bonnie also set up a lovely rehrearsal whch took away any fear I had of confusion the day of. My only regret is that I didn't put in a review earlier. Bonnie - Thanks so much for officiating our wedding, we really appreciate it! :)

Bonnie was great - the vows she wrote for us were beautiful and perfect - just what we were looking for (our wedding ceremony was non-denominational)! She sent them to me ahead of time and we had the opportunity to make any changes we wanted - just a few changes were needed, but not many, because like I said she seemed to know exactly what suited us! The ceremony itself was lovely - Bonnie has clearly done this more than a few times :)

Helpful Hints (for your wedding day):
- If your officiant does not attend your rehearsal (if you have one) - be sure to write down any additional instructions (how the couple wants to stand, any instructions for guests after announcing as husband and wife, ect) to be given to her by someone you trust. Things get crazy and those can be important details!
- Be sure to included all the necessary envelopes/postage so that your marriage license will be mailed to you and you don't have to go pick it up (unless you want to)!

Bonnie McCarthy was great! She made changes to the service based on our idea's and theme. She drove out of her way to meet with us. We live in Nashua but we were having the ceremony in Rindge, NH. She was very responsive to E-mails and on the phone.

After the Rehersal I felt so much more calm about the wedding. Her confidence helped put my mind at ease. The ceremony was beautiful! The Unity Flower ceremony that she does is such a great idea for outdoor weddings! This saves the embarrassment of having the candle blow out if a breeze picks up.

Bonnie was very well prepared and did a great job! I would recommend her to anyone who wants a heartfelt ceremony. We love the booklet she put together for us so we would remember the whole ceremony and vows. :)

Rev. McCarthy was a caring, respectful, flexible and professional officiant. She was readily available via phone and email, tailored our ceremony to our exact tastes and provided a very professional rehearsal and touching ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone in search of an officiant for their big day.

As two women celebrating New Hampshire's recent enactment of same-sex marriage, we were a little nervous about finding the right person to perform our ceremony. Bonnie was professional and receptive to all of our special requests. We had a very small ceremony at our home and our friends and family agreed that she was wonderful. She made everyone feel comfortable and we enjoyed spending time with her after the service. We couldn't recommend her more highly! Tracy & Julie.

Bonnie was really great to work with as we were planning our ceremony. She was very flexible in relation to what we wanted (and didn't want) and provided helpful suggestions. Bonnie is very open, welcoming, personable and inclusive - we couldn't have wished for a better officiant!!! We highly recommend contacting Bonnie about your ceremony - you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I were legally married in Lebanon, the country of his birth and where the majority of his family lives. My family was unable to attend the overseas ceremony, so it was important that we find a way to also honor the significance of this milestone in our lives with my family and our friends who live here as well. As the details of our stateside celebration came together, we felt it would be meaningful to include my family and our friends in a civil ceremony that confirmed our commitment for one another. We discovered Bonnie and her services through a recommendation and could not have been more pleased with her efforts to customize the ceremony to suit our needs and taste. In the relatively short time we were in contact with one another prior to the ceremony, she collected enough information to suggest a ceremony program that flowed naturally and beautifully from start to finish. Bonnie recognized the value of our two families coming together through the symbolism of a flower ceremony. This was a meaningful component of our ceremony as it allowed us to acknowledge our two families who had never met and could not be present at the same ceremony to honor our commitment together. We also factored in a reading of a poem about love, read by a close friend of mine. Finally, we had to opportunity to draft our own vows and read them aloud to one another in the presence of our friends and my family which was a special component as well. Bonnie very thoughtfully collected the thoughts, insights and prayers recited at our ceremony into a keepsake book which is a treasure I hold close to my heart. Bonnie's services as an officiant of civil ceremonies and unions goes above and beyond what I could have expected. She is a deeply spiritual person, without preaching the teachings of just one version of Christianity or any other faith, her background and training allows for a deep appreciation and insight into the core values of what brings couples together. Bonnie has the unique gift of bringing couples together in the presence of family and friends and uniting them in the warmest, most loving and beautiful way possible with the presence of her words, prayers and insights that come from her passion to serve in this capacity as well as her years of training and practice. I would recommend her services to anyone who is interested in having a civil ceremony.
