What Makes Us Unique
In a nutshell
My celebrancy journey started in 1999 when I was asked to do my first handfasting. Since then I've honed my craft delivering hundreds of ceremonies , and since 2014 I've been sharing my passion for this work by delivering training courses for nature inspired celebrants worldwide. I might be the perfect celebrant for you if: you love nature and are planning an outdoor wedding; and if you want your ceremony to feel really special and magical and also totally inclusive, completely comfortable for you both and all your guests and truly YOU. Whilst I've been exploring druidry and nature inspired spirituality for many years, I'm honoured to create really special ceremonies with and for people of all faiths and none.
Why do you want to work with LGBTQ+ couples?
I love working with all kinds of different people - it's an honour and a delight to celebrate love in all its forms!
What is your creative approach to weddings?
I'm excited to create every single ceremony, and always looking for ways to make each wedding special and uniquely fitting for the couple, the place and the gathering. As a prizewinning poet and former teacher of creative writing I love working with words. I pour my heart into the drafts I write for you, and also into the unscripted parts of your ceremony, where I draw my inspiration from you, your chosen place, your special gathering and your moment.
What do you love about what you do?
Being a celebrant brings together everything I love and feel good at - from getting to know people and drawing out their stories, through all the creative processes involved in designing and writing ceremonies, to that special delight of bringing everyone together on the big day. I see our contract as twofold: on the one hand you pay me a fee for which you can expect a fully professional service; on the other hand, you are giving me the priceless privilege of trusting me to be a part of one of the most important moments of your lives, for which I'll give you everything I can to make it the best it can possibly be.
What is included in the wedding package?
I don't do packages as such, but you can expect a minimum of two time unlimited face to face meetings, unlimited extra local / online meetings, an unlimited number of drafts, and liaison with any other people who'll be taking a special role in your ceremony - which can include any or all of the following at no extra cost:
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Very rarely - only in exceptional circumstances and if weddings are at least three and half hours apart time wise and no more than half an hour's travelling distance.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge per event. Once I'm working on your wedding I'm all in and will do everything I possibly can to make it as wonderful as it can be.
Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?
What forms of payment do you take?
I ask for a deposit of £150 to secure a booking and full fees to be paid at least one month ahead of the wedding.
