Weddings & Civil Partnerships

Wedding and Civil Partnerships with a CelebrantMake your big day more special and more personal to you

A wedding or a civil partnership is the ultimate seal of commitment and so it’s no surprise that couples often want to make the ceremony more special and personal to them.

Using a professional wedding celebrant provides couples with the expert guidance to re-imagine all the ceremonial aspects of their ceremony – including the exchange of vows, exchange of rings and bespoke readings.

Experienced Wedding Celebrant

As you will see from my Kind Words page I have conducted wedding ceremonies in private gardens, in barns, in marquees and even in a pub (!)

I love getting to know couples and working with them to help them celebrate in a way that they feel comfortable with. Whether this means something extravagant and extrovert, or something more bijou and intimate, I thoroughly enjoy using a creative approach to develop something truly memorable.

Supporting couples to create something that is uniquely about them, means that I can incorporate any particular wishes, or beliefs, in the ceremony. This is a wonderful way to ensure different cultures, backgrounds, or faiths can be suitably represented and celebrated.

Rituals to celebrate poignant moments

Humans have been finding ways to celebrate poignant moments in their lives, since the dawn of time and throughout all civilisations, including through the use of symbolic rituals. These rituals are not often included in our present day, UK-based weddings, but can be such a fantastic way of visually representing the unification of two individuals. For example, handfasting, sand ceremony, rose ceremony, glass ceremony or the planting of a tree.


We just wanted to say a huge thank you for leading our ceremony on Saturday. It was just what we were hoping for, personal and warm whilst still feeling like a wedding ceremony. We received so many compliments from our guests about you and you played a big part in making our day so special.”

Marriage legalities

Please note: For a marriage to be recognised in law, a separate service within a registry office, or an approved licensed venue, with a legal registrar is required.
