I care about celebrating you on your own terms. I’ll bring all of my curiosity, empathy, creativity and writing skills to shape a ceremony that’ll fill you and your guests with joy.

“We are so happy that we had you as our celebrant, you were the best! We had so much amazing feedback from our guests saying how much they loved you and your warm spirit. Thank you so much for making this a wonderful and beautiful experience for us.” Nicole and Carlton

If you’re looking for a celebrant who can:

//Write and deliver a ceremony that is for and about you both

//Listen and act on what’s important to you

//Be as creative or as traditional as you both are comfortable with

//Create a fun, loving and inclusive atmosphere for you and your guests

//Affirm your commitment where legal marriage would unfairly penalise you

then get in touch for a chat. I’ll get a sense of what you have in mind, answer any questions you might have, and outline how we could work together.


In a nutshell…

I’ll work with you to shape a meaningful and memorable ceremony that you’ll look back on and treasure. I love crafting ceremonies that reflect your personalities, quirks and values – the things that you care about. I know how to create a special and unique environment for you and your guests.

I’m proud to be a LGBTQ+ wedding supplier with a passion for inclusion in all its forms. I take time to understand how to celebrate you and your guests in a way that works for you. Each year, a portion of my fees are donated to community-led LGBTQ+ charities.

I live and work across Sussex, London and surrounding counties. I’m delighted to be a recommended supplier at Pub Wedding London, The Pilgrims Rest BattleYour Weddingology and The George in Rye.

The cost

Please arrange an informal chat to get a quote tailored to your needs and ceremony location. I work across Sussex, London and N Ireland. My fee for crafting, writing and leading your ceremony varies by location, so book in a no obligation discovery call to get an accurate quote. You will always know the total price upfront before you choose to secure me as your celebrant.

When you book your wedding with me I’ll share payment options with you to support all budgets. The legal paperwork is organised by you – separately to your wedding. I have a helpful post about this on my Instagram.


Next Steps

Let’s chat so I can learn more about your plans, whatever stage they’re at. E-mail me at or DM me on Instagram and we can arrange how you want to have a first chat from there. You can also book an informal video call here.

I’ve worked with timeframes from two months to a year and a half before the ceremony, so contact me early to secure me for your preferred ceremony date. Looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you.” Nadine and Chris
