Every ceremony is a unique ceremony
Making a genuine connection with you and your partner
The perfect tone for each couple - emotional, lighthearted, dignified, heartfelt
A beaming smile, superb diction and great public speaking ability
Hi everyone. I’m Lynn, an independent celebrant, not a job – a passion.
I’ve often been asked what’s the best bit about being a celebrant. My answer has to be that first meeting with a new couple, the exciting prospect of being able to work with you at the best time in your lives, getting to know you, the time when I can show you how special your wedding ceremony can be made by adding elements that will mean so much to you, reflecting your personalities, interests and beliefs.
Yes, I’m a people person. The excitement from this meeting carries us all through the next few days, weeks and months as more ideas come to mind, some will be included, others discarded. I can get quite carried away at this stage! But then I rein myself in to write a beautiful ceremony that reflects you so perfectly, one that your family and friends will remember as standing out from the standard.
When I’m not working on creating memorable wedding ceremonies, I am never happier than sitting with a crochet hook in my hand or with my foot on a sewing machine pedal. I guess that’s why I get such a thrill out of finding those little handmade elements at weddings (and snapping a photo of them) and am amazed at what people produce to make their whole day really personal and unique. And I guess that’s why they’ve chosen me in the first place, for the personal, unique and creative touch I can bring to their day.
Traditional or alternative, barn or woodland, sunrise or sunset. From handpicked readings to personal vows, from unity ceremonies to jumping the broomstick, your unique ceremony will be written and conducted with warmth, emotion and just the right amount of humour. Your day, your way.

"The hard work and emotional effort Lynn put into creating such a beautiful ceremony was not lost on us and we know just how tough a job it was for her hitting that perfect tone for the day which she most certainly did! We had numerous family and friends saying to us that it was the most emotional ceremony they have ever experienced and they felt honoured to witness it... well what more could we want than that!? Hardly a dry eye to be found either. Lynn not only beat our expectations she smashed them! It was a work of art and we are both so grateful for her making our day so so special. We both felt a real connection with Lynn and my parents said they could see it during the ceremony and were blown away by the beauitul words and her emotional delivery. Thank you Lynn we really could not be happier and we will treasure that day forever. Also if anyone has any sceptical friends or relatives about having a celebrant have no fear, Lynn impressed every last one of our loveable sceptics! and they were all moved and commented on how it really felt like a wedding day. A* Lynn!"

"Lynn led our wedding ceremony in September 2017. From early on we loved her sense of humour, her energy, and the fact that she was open to accommodating even our maddest ideas! We wanted a mixture of traditions and cultures, and she did a great job of researching ideas and suggesting how to incorporate them. ....... it all ran completely smoothly on the day, and she led the perfect ceremony – it was relaxed, honest and full of humour, but solemn and respectful at the right moments. She managed to express why we loved each other and were getting married in words that we could not have said ourselves, and told some great stories along the way (and gazumped the speeches!). The ceremony had exactly the warm, fun and quirky feel we had hoped for, and so many people told us how lovely it was, that it fitted our personalities really well and set a great atmosphere for the rest of the day. Lynn did an amazing job of creating something perfect for us, but I get the impression she is very adaptable and able to bring out whatever suits the couple she is with. We would happily recommend her to others getting married."

"From our very first meeting, through to helping us with our vows, the script, the order of the day - recommending readings - and of course the obvious stuff you want from someone who'll be hosting your ceremony - a positive attitude, beaming smile, superb diction and great public speaking ability - Lynn was simply fantastic. Whilst my family is rather alternative, the bride's were much more traditional. Going with a celebrant was not I'd say a risk, but bound to come under far more scrutiny than a religious ceremony would have. On the other hand, there was simply no way I was going to go down the religious route personally! But the point is, people were sceptical, but to a man every piece of feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. People loved the ceremony, and it wouldn't have been possible without Lynn. Going through her questionnaires initially to help us write up how exactly we met, and fell in love, was lovely, and that it was so well reflected in the final script is a brilliant reflection of the personal touch Lynn brings to proceedings. All I would say, is if you're considering a Celebrant (or even if you weren't before), and stumble across Lynn and this page, book her immediately. She will make your day great, and you'll love it."

"Where do we begin! Words truly can't express how grateful and blown away we were with Lynn's contribution to our wedding. Lynn is a kind, caring and thoughtful woman. We felt connected to her from the very first Skype call all those months ago. The ceremony she put together was truly heartfelt and personal and will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Lynn brought a human energy to our day that was priceless and really captured the essence of who we are. Many of our guests said that it was the most authentic and entertaining they had ever witnessed. For this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To anyone reading this, look no further, you have found your celebrant! We will miss you Lynn, be happy and successful. Love always, Naoise and Cam xxx"
