    We would like to say a massive thank you to Nicola for our amazing wedding ceremony! Nicola was fabulous from day one!
    She was always responsive, right from the first email which we had messaged quite late in the evening, and by midnight Nicola had already responded. From our first Zoom call with Nicola, we knew she was the person we wanted to deliver our ceremony. Nicola was kind, caring, witty and empathic and made us feel very comfortable and understanding with my husband’s hectic work schedule at the time. Nicola created a beautiful ceremony for us, and it meant the world to us both that she played such an important role in our day. Nicola truly cares about her couples and goes above and beyond to support her couples, so they have a magical day! If you are looking for someone to make your wedding ceremony special, Nicola truly will!

    We had Nicola as our celebrant and she was brilliant! She really did a lovely service and was happy to go along with everything we had asked.
    We booked Nicola quite late but it didn’t faze her, she did a brilliant job. Really recommend her!

    Nicola conducted our recent wedding ceremony and she was amazing from start to finish.
    We first contacted Nicola quite late in our wedding planning, but this didn’t phase her and she helped us feel comfortable.
    We met Nicola in person before the ceremony which showed us just how passionate and skilled she is in her role. The ceremony was perfect but also with an individual touch, Thank you, Nicola, you made our day beautiful and personal all at the same time.

    Our first few video calls were hilarious. We hit it off and felt at home. We were looking for a little guidance with our ceremony having researched a lot before, but Nicola broke everything down for us and gave us ideas to think about, to create those special moments during our ceremony.
    Nicola gives you all the options and guidance to really make your own decisions, you don’t have to follow the norm and that should always be ok.
    On the day, our guests adored Nicola, they thought she was funny and brought life into the ceremony whilst telling our story.
    If you’re feeling nervous, Nicola has a remedy for a crying groom. Nicola has the tissues There is honestly no element she hasn’t already experienced and can’t help you through.

    First off, can I just say how many people came up to me to say what a gorgeous ceremony we had. Before learning about what you do, I could never have even DREAMED we’d be able to have such a personal, fun, funny, emotional, meaningful ceremony. And it was all topped off perfectly with you leading it all ❤️ you spoke so eloquenty but with so much genuine love that put us both at ease instantly. I genuinely can’t imagine anyone else having officiated our ceremony. The script was beyond perfect, the stories of us and the moments we just never would have had captured if we hadn’t had you there with us ❤️ you are so amazing at what you do and we could not be more over the moon with how the ceremony went ❤️

    Our frame is on display and I’ve also created another display with my wedding bouquet, your marriage certificate and our vows that we can keep and display forever ❤️ thank you for all of the gorgeous stationery, every piece was so beautifully put together, so luxurious and just so beyond anything we could have wished for. Truly amazing ❤️❤️❤️

What Makes Us Unique

In a nutshell

What sets me apart is my commitment to crafting one-of-a-kind ceremonies. No two celebrations are the same, because I believe in crafting each ceremony to reflect each distinct love story. With two decades of experience in the wedding industry, I have honed my skills and insights to ensure that your special day is truly remarkable.

My approach is a blend of passion, warmth, openness, calm, and humour. I understand that your wedding day should be a reflection of your unique connection, and I'm dedicated to creating a ceremony that captures the essence of your love.
Let's work together to make your wedding day a memory to cherish forever.

Why do you want to work with LGBTQ+ couples?

I am deeply committed to providing a welcoming and understanding space for LGBTQIA+ couples. It's vital to me that all couples, irrespective of their identity, feel truly seen and embraced by their celebrant. Love knows no boundaries, and every love story is unique.

But, beyond the labels, many couples simply want to focus on what truly matters – the love and commitment they share. Whether it's a same-sex wedding, a heterosexual wedding, or any other variation, at its core, it's a celebration of two individuals pledging their love and lives to each other. Love unites us all, and that's the heart of the matter, isn't it? Let's celebrate love, inclusivity, and your unique journey together, without making a fuss about the labels.

What is your creative approach to weddings?

When you choose me as your Wedding Celebrant, you can be assured that with an array of skills and experience along with an open and friendly personality, you and your guest will feel as of the ceremony was officiated by a friend.

I love collaborating with my couple to craft a ceremony that strikes the perfect balance between love, emotion, lighthearted humour, and, of course, the right touch of solemnity at pivotal moments in the ceremony. Ultimately, it's your day, and it's all about you! I'm here to honour your beliefs and create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects your unique love story and vision for this momentous occasion. Your Wedding Day, your way.

What do you love about what you do?


What is included in the wedding package?

Should you decide to move forward and choose me as your Celebrant, from day one, I'm here to support you with a wealth of helpful hints and tips. Whether you're seeking suggestions for readings, assistance with crafting your own vows or considering personal touches like a special ritual,

I'm here to guide you every step of the way.
Around six months before your big day, I'll send you your "Ceremony Homework",
I'd also love to arrange a call or even a visit a couple of months before the ceremony.
This gives us a chance to delve deeper into your  love story and understand your vision for the wedding ceremony.
Once I have gathered all the necessary details, I will spend some time crafting the first draft of your ceremony script.
But don't worry, I'm not just handing it over and disappearing! I'll continue to work closely with you, making any changes needed until it's absolutely perfect and reflects your vision.
As your big day approaches, you can count on me to be punctual and thorough. I'll check in with your venue and liaise with any other suppliers you've arranged, such as photographers or musicians. Additionally, I'll have a quick chat with members of your wedding party, anyone doing readings and If any nerves need calming, or buttonholes need to be pinned on, I'm here for that too!
When the moment arrives, the one you've been eagerly waiting for, I'll be there to officiate your bespoke ceremony with the utmost care and attention.
Included in my fee:
  • Crafting a beautiful, bespoke and memorable ceremony
  • Open and continuous communication throughout the entire process.
  • A ceremony rehearsal, whether it's in person at your chosen venue or as required.
  • A beautiful copy of your Ceremony Script.
  • Beautiful personalised vow booklets.
  • A specially designed wedding ceremony certificate for you to sign during the ceremony.
  • The use of a large portable speaker and two microphones if needed.
  • Peace of mind on your special day, as unlike many other Celebrants, I only book one ceremony a day, ensuring complete flexibility in case of timing changes or unexpected delays.
Travel within a 60-mile radius of Buckingham incurs no additional charges but for locations beyond this radius, travel expenses are calculated at the standard rate of £0.45 per mile.
I'm here to make your wedding day unforgettable and uniquely yours. Let's embark on this beautiful journey together!

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

I only ever book one ceremony a day. Unlike many other Celebrants, I am an established and experienced wedding Celebrant with over 20 years of experience in the wedding industry. I understand the need to ensure my couples do not have to worry that their ceremony will not go ahead if there are any unexpected delays.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

My 2024 ceremony fee is  from £650

My 2025 ceremony fee is  from £750

Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

I am able to officiate a ceremony where and when a couple wishes.

What forms of payment do you take?

Payment can be made by bank transfer or Paypal

I only ask for a deposit of £200 with the remaining amount due 6 weeks before the wedding date.
