A Star Wars Stormtrooper Wedding Ceremony

posted in: love, weddings | 0

If you’ve followed me for more than about 5 minutes, you’ll probably know that a) I’m a big fan of reflecting couples’ personalities and interests in their wedding ceremony, and b) I love any excuse to dress up! Which is why I LOVED my day at Worthing Wormhole, our local sci-fi and comic con, last November. People were in their … Read More

How much does a wedding celebrant cost?

posted in: weddings | 0

One of the questions I hear most (after ‘what is a celebrant?’!), is ‘how much does a wedding celebrant cost?’ Like so many things, I think that this is because people don’t want to invest their time in finding out more and get interested, only to realise they can’t afford it. I get it! And I can see why, on … Read More

The 2018 Wedding Industry Awards National Celebrant of the Year? That’ll be me then!

After my gushing post about winning the South East regional Wedding Industry Awards final only a couple of months ago, here’s an even more over-excited one: I blooming well won the title of ‘Celebrant of the Year 2018’ at the national finals in London last week! To say that I’m over the moon wouldn’t even be close to describing how … Read More

Celebrant of the Year in the South East

And the winner of the the Wedding Industry Awards Celebrant of the Year for 2018 in the South East region is… CREATING CEREMONY! You know, I can’t quite remember this moment, even though it was only a couple of days ago. No, it’s not that I’d had too many Proseccos (as if…!) – it just felt like a very surreal, … Read More

Circles and ceremony

Circles. They drip with meaning and symbolism given to them by mankind through the ages. Maybe it’s because early man looked up and saw the circular moon and the sun or looked in their companions’ eyes that we started our fascination with the shape. Whatever its beginning, over the years the circle has stood for wholeness, completion and has been … Read More

Decoy Ponds – a magical setting for your wedding ceremony

posted in: venues, weddings | 0

A few short minutes’ drive off the A27 near Hammerpot, I arrived at Decoy Ponds. At first, I thought this couldn’t possibly be the right place. It was so near the main road and I had heard how peaceful and tranquil it was there. Surely I’d have further to drive to find a place like that? But I knew I … Read More

Sue and Okkie’s garden wedding – teamwork at its best!

One of the things I’ve loved since becoming a celebrant is the way that the wedding industry works. Whilst the media might have you think that we’re all money hungry vultures, waiting to fleece unsuspecting couples of all their wonga (whilst laughing maniacally of course), the reality is far different. Nearly everyone I’ve met in the industry has been passionate … Read More

I like big BUTS and I cannot lie…

posted in: love, weddings | 0

Haha made you look, made you stare! But it’s true – I DO like big buts – because answering them might just make the difference between you choosing a ‘meh’ wedding ceremony and a ‘HELL YEAH!’ wedding ceremony. So, what do you think? Fancy looking at some buts with me? Let’s go! BUT it’s not legal, is it? I don’t … Read More
