My Approach To Your Wedding Ceremony
Let’s Plan Your Dream Day Together
Congratulations On Your Engagement!
This is such an exciting time for you both. Whatever your timeline, it is so important to enjoy the journey. So, you have a wedding to plan? A task that can be daunting. But one piece of advice I give all my couples : "This day is about you!"
Why Choose An Independent Celebrant?
We specialise in weddings and in making your ceremony unique. It should always tell your Love Story.
Wherever you wish to get wed, you can make it happen with me as your celebrant : in a garden, a hotel or somewhere that is uniquely special to you. With a celebrant led wedding you get your choice of poems and readings, songs or hymns. We can add in traditional or spiritual unity elements. Whatever you choose to enhance your day.
Together we will create the most beautiful and memorable ceremony for you!
A Bespoke Ceremony
You will never go to another wedding like yours because it is tailored for the two of you alone. All of my ceremonies are bespoke, written for my unique couples from scratch. I use information from the comprehensive questionnaires you are asked to complete, from our conversations, and from my own research. I do not cut corners on the ceremony by reusing past ceremonies, everything is written especially for you.
A treasured find ~ Elizabeth
I have so much to thank Elizabeth for. Circumstances in 2020 led us via an internet search to Elizabeth and in 5 days there she was acting as Celebrant at our ‘elopement style’ wedding ceremony in place of the cancelled civil partnership. Standing together at Glanusk Estate next to the ‘fish standing stone’ was intimate and perfect. I cried, we laughed and experienced emotions that were special to us both, memories all made possible by Elizabeth’s understanding of our needs and the perfect setting. Elizabeth’s presentation is unique to her, she’s so thoughtful and bound our words as she bound our lives.

Instruction & Guidance
All of my ceremonies include a copy of the ceremony and 'stage direction' for your wedding planner, videographer and photographer if using them, so they know the running order of the ceremony.
Free Of Charge
Our initial meeting of up to an hour is free of charge. We can meet face to face or by zoom/Skype depending on distance and preferences. Following this meeting, I will hold your potential date for five working days without a holding fee.
