Truly bespoke wedding ceremony, as unique as you are
Psychologist and author, well versed in public speaking and creative writing
Bring confidence and assurance to your big day
Accredited and very experienced Celebrant with glowing testimonials
Whether you are newly engaged to be married, are considering renewing your marriage vows, or are thinking about a partnership ceremony, congratulations!
My role is to facilitate and coordinate your ceremony, which allows you to have as much input with which you feel comfortable.
Celebrating your very special day is exciting and such an important time...non religious weddings are increasing in number each year, and as an accredited and very experienced celebrant I feel it is an honour to be part of such a joyous occasion.
Like many couples, you might want a ceremony which means something more. You’ll probably not want to feel rushed. Each wedding ceremony is unique, dignified and deeply personal. You might want to be formal, or thoroughly informal. Your wedding can take place anywhere ‘safe and dignified’, you are effectively free to marry wherever you choose.
The majority of ceremonies include readings and music, usually chosen for sentimental and personal reasons. The most important thing to remember is that your ceremony is about a public declaration of your love and commitment to each other.
Often couples come from different traditions and including this into your ceremony is important for many. It can be so very elegantly and sensitively embraced with words, readings, tea ceremony, sand blending, hand-fasting, and any other traditions close to your hearts. I will help you with all of this to ensure your ceremony is all you hope for and more.
I meet with you before the ceremony, to consult, answer questions, discuss ideas and to prepare a script especially tailored to you. I can advise on ways of handling small details that help to make such an important occasion a big success. I will then plan and rehearse every aspect of the ceremony with you so that you feel relaxed, confident and ready to really enjoy your special day.
At the moment in England, prior to the Wedding ceremony you will need to attend the registry office and deal with the civil legalities. It's a simple procedure and can be just a few words, 2 witnesses and no ring exchange. You are then free to marry at any time, anywhere. It doesn’t have to be in the day or in a licensed premises, it is entirely of your choice. I will fit in with you.
"Thank you so much for conducting the most perfect ceremony for us! The ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt and most importantly personal to us both. You eased our nerves and made us feel completely comfortable throughout. Many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding ceremony they had attended; the way you engaged all the guests and truly made them feel part of the occasion was wonderful. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout, always responding promptly to our (multiple!) requests, and nothing was ever too much trouble. We really appreciate all of your help and hard work – we will forever be grateful to you!"

"I can't let another day go by without dropping you a line to thank you so much for leading our wedding ceremony so beautifully and sensitively. We will remember it forever. Thank you for easing me into it so gently - I ended up being more emotional than Richard which was a bit unexpected!! The structure for the ceremony and the words you helped us with were perfect I can't believe how beautiful it all was ~ the setting the unbelievable weather and the emotional tone and space you created. The whole thing was magical from start to finish. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Words can't adequately express how perfectly you made it all happen. We are hugely grateful."
Libby & Richard
"Wow! We hardly know where to begin in thanking you. You helped to create a perfect ceremony for us. Our wedding day was magical, but we both agreed that the ceremony was our favourite part. It was personal, reflected our beliefs and relationship perfectly, and was worth all the effort we all put into it. You were absolutely incredible during the planning process. So kind and supportive, but also providing guidance and structure when we needed it. Everyone commented that you were very professional on the day, and that you managed to create a warm and fun environment, but with the level of seriousness the occasion deserved. We will be grateful to you for the rest of our lives – seriously, you helped us to begin our marriage in the best possible way. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Vicky & Cos
"The ceremony you did for us was unbelievably beautiful, and has been commented on as being the most beautiful wedding ceremony most of our guests had ever been to. You put us completely at ease (including my Dad!), which allowed us to enjoy our day rather than worrying what was happening next. Thank you for creating a wonderful ceremony that was beyond anything we could have ever dreamed of, and we felt reflected the love we have for each other."
