The Somerset Celebrant

Congratulations!!! If you’re on here, you’re looking for a wedding celebrant.  Therefore, you  must be planning your wedding, how exciting!!

Choosing a celebrant led-wedding means you value the importance of having a wedding ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple. In other words,  your uniqueness, your individuality and your story.

We will work closely together to craft the wedding ceremony that is perfect for you, to ensure lasting and happy memories of your special day.

A Bit About Me

As an English teacher, I’d often been asked to speak at, or lead the weddings of friends and family. It was something I really loved and enjoyed doing. So, after celebrating my eldest daughter, Sophie’s amazing tipi wedding, I decided it was time to take the plunge and become a Family Celebrant.

I love it. I get to meet some amazing couples. I spend time with them, to understand their wants, in order to craft and deliver the perfect ceremony for them.

The ever expanding collection of confettin shots on my gallery page reflects the joy and happiness created!

I live with my partner, Brian and have three grown-up children. Six years ago I became a grandmother for the first time. However, since then two more have been added to the ‘clan’. Family is very important to me, it’s where I enjoy my time and therefore make my fondest memories.

Working with couples and families to create their special memories is such a privilege. In fact I can’t believe how much I love every aspect of what I do! Just how lucky am I?

I was recently invited to talk about celebrant-led weddings with top wedding photographer Nick Church on his YouTube Channel Top Table   Follow the link to watch us chat about an amazingly unforgettable wedding we did together and get an insight of what I can do for you!
