North East Wedding Celebrant Full Description
We’ve all been to weddings that just don’t cut the mustard, there's no excuse! I absolutely ADORE creating amazing memories for couples who recognize the value of a totally awesome ceremony that tells your story with passion, emotion and humour. Take all your guests on a journey with you, where they’ll be soaking up every meaningful moment, feeling completely part of it, and not just a witness to it. Believe me, they won’t even be thinking about when they can grab a drink from the bar! And because the legalities are taken care of separately, the only limit to what you can do is your imagination. A wedding ceremony is not just about the words that are said, the place where it is held, or the people who are present. It is all about the vibration that is created, linking all of those elements together. That is what stays with us forever - the feeling and the frequency that anchors us to a particular moment in time. ​ If you’re trying to avoid a stuffy traditional ceremony you are in the right place. I’ll work with you to create a ceremony that’s custom-tailored to suit your vibe. I aim to strike the perfect balance to make your wedding fun, relaxed and engaging while still being memorable, meaningful and magical. ​ As an independent celebrant, I'm able to include religious, spiritual, pagan, and Celtic rituals or blend cultural elements into the ceremony to ensure the script captures you as a couple. Your ceremony should be more than just a box to tick… It should be the highlight of your day, the celebration of inclusive love that your guests won’t stop raving about! I love adventure so I'm more than happy to travel anywhere (Please someone invite me to Santorini), although I mainly complete ceremonies in Northumberland, County Durham, Cumbria, and Yorkshire. 2022 Award winner for best newcomer Celebrant of the Year.
