Nashville Wedding Officiant Zelda Sheldon. 

It's all about love.

Officiants generally referred to as "celebrants" are people who officiate  marriage and other major life ceremonies for those who do not want a traditional religious ceremony. 

Celebrancy is a movement to provide agents to officiate at ceremonies often reserved in law to either the clergy officers or the courts. Today more and more people are choosing a life celebration that is an expression of their love and creativity in non-traditional styles and in non-traditional settings - parks, beaches, lakes, mountains, bridges, honky-tonk bars, private homes and venues of all kinds including churches, porches and reception rooms. 

Love is everywhere. 

This is your wedding and the sky's the limit. 

109 Weddings officiated...and the love story continues.

Love has the power to bring us together.

In the United States, Canada and many other countries around the world, officiants and celebrants perform religious or secular celebrancy services for weddings, renewing vows, child namings, coming of age ceremonies, funerals, and other significant rituals which are a valuable part of our lives. 

An officiant's main responsibility is to receive and witness the consent of the intended spouses and to ensure the legal formalities, ensuring the validity of the marriage or civil union, are observed. 

Officiant's duties and responsibilities, as well as who may be an officiant vary among jurisdictions.

As a recognised Officiant Zelda Sheldon is available not only to legally officiate your ceremony but also to help you make your wedding ceremony truly special.  

Nashville Marriage Officiant Zelda Sheldon creates a beautiful ceremony perfect for you. 

Zelda will write and personalize your ceremony, helping you create a tone that's a perfect fit for your style and preferences, whatever you want that expresses your unique personality. One thing for sure, if you are wishing for the most beautiful joy-filled ceremony full of warmth, laughter and love that you and your guests will always remember Zelda will help you create that magic moment in time.

Rave Reviews

Zelda is amazing! My husband and I were thrilled to share our special day with her. During our planning process Zelda was very communicative, friendly and helpful. We met several times prior to the wedding to discuss plans and details; at one point we even changed the date of our wedding and Zelda was extremely flexible and happy to work with us. She is a beautiful person inside and out and just brought so much joy to our wedding day with her awesome uke playing and singing. Our guests loved her and so do we. Thank you Zelda!!   Emily and Ben Nelson, Florida USA        

Zelda was the icing on the cake! First of all, God meant for her to marry my husband and I. After something happened with the first officiant I had spoken with, I quickly talked to Zelda eight days before our wedding! I was very happy she was available, and she met me within a couple of days, thoughtfully walked me through each sentence, and read me what she would read at the ceremony, like an angel! She sounds so great and that is important. It also started raining for a bit when my outdoor ceremony was supposed to start, but Zelda and her own sunshine came in, she is so personable and sweet. She was even having good conversation with my guests while we waited for the rain to stop. Didn't need a microphone, her very pleasant voice was clear enough for the people in the back row to hear (80 guests outdoors). She was soothing to have near when mine and my husband's hands were shaking. She included my dad and our son in asking who gave me away and asking by name to provide our rings, very sweet and thoughtful. I am sooo glad Zelda could be there for us and our ceremony. :)  Alison H. Franklin TN

"Our guests were raving about our ceremony - namely Zelda's singing and ukulele playing as I walked down the aisle. She played and sang "All You Need Is Love" by the Beatles. She is talented, fun and professional. You won't be disappointed." Kayla and Ben, Nashville 

Thanks again for all your help Zelda.  It was truly a special day for us and we were so glad to have you be a part of our Nashville Wedding!  Rachel and Bill. 

Zelda, I'm happy we found you to do our ceremony. As soon as we met you we knew we made the right choice. Thank you for making our houseboat wedding a wonderful memory. All our guests loved you too. We're glad you & Pal stayed & had fun". The Benoit's

Amazing! My romantic dream wedding to propose and have my wedding ceremony on stage downtown Broadway during my show. Zelda, you made it all happen, Jessie my lovely bride was amazed and it couldn't have been more perfect!  Thank you for everything. Johnathan and Jessie, Nashville

My wedding was wonderful due to the fact that Zelda Sheldon, officiant, was on time and went that extra mile to make sure everything turned out excellent. She is very friendly and has a great personality, I highly recommend her as your wedding officiant. Thanks so much, Zelda for making my day special!!! Toyia S. Detroit
Zelda performed a brief and memorable wedding ceremony for us in Nashville. We traveled for our wedding and Zelda was great to work with in planning our vows and ceremony from out of town. The ceremony was warm and personable and her ukulele playing was wonderful! She was professional and we were extremely happy with her services, both in prepping and delivering the ceremony. Kelli S. Nashville
We chose Zelda Sheldon to perform at our country style wedding in Hendersonville. She was very efficient, warm and gracious. We had beautiful and memorable wedding.

Zelda is a wonderful officiant performing our wedding. We would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Zelda so much. Regina L. Nashville TN

Zelda, thank you for everything. As the groom it was up to me to find the right officiant for our wedding ceremony. And I’m relieved I made the best decision. You made the whole process so easy. I got so many nice comments from my family and friends who all loved your service. Huntley B, Nashville TN.

Thank you Zelda. The wedding ceremony you gave us was perfect. Especially the song you played on ukulele ‘So This is Love’. Vance and Mikinzie TN.
