“Steph was phenomenal… it felt like we were making a friend, she completely got us, asked just the right questions and really listened to our answers”
“You made our wedding into what we had always wanted it to be”
“We had so many people raving to us about how special, personal, funny, moving and unique our ceremony was”
“We really want to thank you for a stupendous ceremony – it surpassed our expectations, and will stay with us forever”
If you’ve found my website there’s a pretty good chance you’re planning on getting married so, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
That you’re here also probably means you’re interested in a ceremony that reflects you and your partner, that tells your story the way that you want to tell it. Personal, heartfelt with a touch of awesome? You’re in the right place.
Whether you know exactly what you want from your wedding ceremony, or if you’re looking for a bit more guidance, I am here to help you along the journey from today, to wedding day. I take care of writing and leading a wedding ceremony that is entirely aligned with your values and reflects you and your partner entirely. You can read a bit more about how we go about doing that here.
Your ceremony can be wherever, and whatever, you’d like it to be, if you’re still thinking about venues, below is a wee snapshot of where I’ve been lucky enough to conduct ceremonies below:
- a wood in Kent
- Pop Brixton
- Clapton Country Club
- Fulham Palace
- Westminster Boat Club
- her grandparents’ back garden!
Each of them was perfect for the couple and brought their own special atmosphere.
Parlez-vous français? I’m also very happy to conduct your wedding completely/partially/slightly in French!
I became an accredited Humanist wedding celebrant after attending a friend’s Humanist ceremony; hearing her and her partner’s personal stories, feeling the romance, the sheer joy and laughter were truly touching.
Over three years later, hearing couples’ personal stories, evoking that romance and encouraging that joy and laughter are what make writing and conducting wedding ceremonies the greatest privilege I think there is. It is the best thing I do. I love creating ceremonies that are meaningful to you, both as individuals and as a pair, that reflect your personalities and tell the story you want to tell. A couple I recently married summed it up best:
“The way in which marriage is celebrated in Humanism is a reflection on what a wedding should be – a celebration of the love between two people. This is supported by the views of our older relatives – we thought they might not agree with not having a Church wedding, but both sets of Grandparents have said how beautiful the ceremony was and how touched they were to be part of it.”
When I’m not performing wedding ceremonies, I work full time in the communications and engagement team in the NHS, talking with people from a wide variety of different backgrounds. I write on a daily basis (albeit about very different things!) and I enjoy taking complex ideas and turning them into concepts people find easier to understand. It’s a little bit like hearing a couples’ stories, memories and emotions and turning it into a script 🙂
When I’m not doing any of the above, I enjoy acting in and directing plays, skills I directly employ during and in the run to your ceremony.
