How am I different?

As a marriage celebrant, I don't just create awe-inspiring and boundary-breaking ceremonies.

I'm with you for the whole journey from 'Will you?', to 'I do', all the way to 'We are'.


Here are six reasons my ceremonies stand out.

  • Creative

I don't do 'personalised' ceremonies (a mug can be personalised). I create imaginative, carefully researched, and lovingly written ceremonies.

I don't simply re-tell your biography, I give you a narrative underpinned by all the elements of your relationship, including the funny, the quirky, the challenging, and the deeply moving.

  • Inclusive

I am a collaborator. I like to find ways to make your family and friends feel like an active part of the ceremony, and your story.

I like to speak to those closest to gain a deeper insight into what makes your relationship work so well.

And I like to share the side-splittingly hilarious anecdotes, and heartachingly-beautiful accolades they supply me with.

  • Unforgettable

The story doesn't end after the day itself. Not only will you and your guests be talking about it for years to come, but I provide you with a coffee table book of your wedding ceremony to look back on as your 'first chapter'. 

I also give you the chance to make a secret first anniversary time capsule, so the surprises keep on coming...

  • Meaningful

Vows are the pinnacle of your ceremony, and the foundation of your marriage.

I hold an alternative approach to vow writing workshop with my couples who want to have a go at writing their own.

For the brave souls that go ahead (you are my heroes), I provide the reward of a complimentary vow artwork as my gift to you.

  • Surprising

Let go of the reins, ask me to build in some surprises. I always have some tricks up my sleeve.

A flash mob is a mere suggestion away...


  • Genuine

I am a Humanist Celebrant, and I live by my values of trying to make the world a better place. 

Not only have I been known to rope my couples in to my crazy fundraising ideas, but for every couple I marry, I dedicate a tree to you through The Woodland Trust.

I am a hippy vegan, and I am always on board with an eco-wedding. You can often find me supporting my local coffee shops, where the majority of my ceremony planning takes place.
