Why couples choose a Celebrant-led Wedding

The freedom to choose where, when ,who and what to say and do 

 It's your day  –  I will only have one ceremony booking for your chosen day, giving you complete freedom to choose the timing of your wedding 

Celebrate Your Way –. You have the option to include additional elements into your ceremony and include your family and friends to make it a more memorable day. I can offer you ideas and suggestions, including handfasting, unity candle lighting, and religious, secular, and cultural traditions.

With a Celebrant-led wedding, you can choose an indoor or outdoor venue from a hotel to a banqueting hall, your garden to a glen, the mountain to a marquee, to hold your Ceremony, without the restriction of using a venue-licensed place. 

Personalise to You – This is your day, so let's do it your way, with vows, and commitments,  to reflect who you are, I will get to know both of you and craft a script, which is unique, and exclusive to you.

 

You are not the copy-and-paste version of another couple, so why would you want to be restricted in your words, timings, and, format? 

Unity and Support  – I will assist you with the format and timings and, can liaise with your videographer, musicians, caterers, and other suppliers you choose to ensure we are aligned and, your Ceremony runs smoothly. I can also meet you at the venue and hold a rehearsal a few days before, to settle any worries you may have.

Ongoing Support from the moment you book me, I will be part of your ceremony team and guide you in your planning, decision making and through to after your wedding ceremony,

No matter how unconventional, quirky, intimate or informal you envision your Wedding Ceremony, contact me.

I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas 

Marriage Law Reform Act 

We are currently waiting for the Marriage Law Reform Act to be passed in the UK. This can allow celebrants such as myself to train in the legal aspects of a Marriage and have a license to carry out your full ceremony.

I am taking provisional bookings for 2026 and beyond on this basis. If you would like to register your interest and give me your chosen date I can pencil you in my diary and you will have first refusal on that date, unless the date has already been taken then you will be next in line.
