SO, YOU'RE CONSIDERING A HUMANIST CELEBRANT?
The personal approach to wedding ceremonies
The best thing about a humanist wedding is that anything is possible! You are in complete control and therefore your ceremony will be a reflection of you as a couple. You might like to have a relatively traditional wedding ceremony with some personal touches weaved throughout, or you might want something more quirky and distinct.
My job as your celebrant is to ask the right questions and listen closely to you, so that we can create a ceremony which reflects you as a couple and all you want your wedding to be. I will help draw together the personal elements you would like to include, such as vows, readings and music.
On your wedding day when you tell everyone how much you love one another, the script we have crafted will result in a beautiful, memorable, humanist celebration for you and your guests.
About you and your wedding…
Oh how lovely, you’re planning a wedding? HOORAY I’m sending you my very best wishes!
I’m guessing… You want to create an occasion that reflects you as a couple and your unique story. You’re looking for a way to celebrate your marriage which isn’t religious, but doesn’t exclude some of your favourite people you’ll be inviting as guests.
You want your wedding to take place somewhere meaningful to you, and include special touches that are fun and memorable. You definitely don’t want a one-size-fits-all ceremony that everyone wishes was over quickly.
The idea of meeting a stranger on the day of your wedding and letting them host the most significant event of your life feels weird. You’d like a humanist celebrant who you get on with, who makes your guests feel welcome, helps you enjoy your day and keeps everything running smoothly.
This is exactly where I come in!
“Remarkable is an understatement, Meg organised my wedding ceremony, worked closely with my singer and photographer to make everything work. I could not have done the day without her, I was totally stress free. From the deepest parts of our newlywed hearts, THANK YOU. You really made our day!”
How your humanist wedding with me works
So you can be sure I’m the right wedding celebrant for you, the first step is a little chat over the phone or via zoom. This is a great chance to tell me all your juicy plans and ask me any questions you might have.
Yay! Assuming we’ve got that all important chemistry, the next step is: You decide to book me to be part of your big day! I’ll send you a contract and take a deposit to secure your booking.
Around six months before your wedding you’ll fill in a questionnaire, and we’ll have one epic discussion so I can really understand you as a couple and what you want from your humanist ceremony.
(I promise you’ll love this bit. Imagine getting to hear from your other half all the things they love about you and your relationship. It’s super cute and lots of fun!)
Over to me to create a bespoke wedding ceremony script which captures your story. I’ll share it with you at least three months before your big day and you’ll have the chance to make edits and suggestions. We’ll work on it until you’re completely happy that it’s right.
I only ever do one wedding a day so on your big day, I’m all yours. I will arrive an hour early and will liaise with your suppliers and the wedding party to ensure that everything is on track and will run smoothly.
All that remains is to CELEBRATE! I’ll lead your completely individual ceremony and it will be a beautiful, memorable, and downright AWESOME celebration for you and your guests.
After your wedding I’ll send you a keepsake copy of your ceremony script so you can re-live it all!

Humanist vow renewal ceremonies
We can never have enough love in our lives. Vow renewals are a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone anniversary and reaffirm your loving commitment to one another.
Renewals are also perfect for couples whose original wedding day was affected by the pandemic. We’ll plan together just as we would for a wedding, and we can include extra little details connected to your original day, making it twice as special.
An elopement is an intimate ceremony with just the two of you. You can make the vows you’ve been longing to make, anywhere you like in the world. First pick a celebrant to conduct a completely personal ceremony then choose a gorgeous spot to make your commitment.
Invite a few select guests if you like, especially if they’re dog-shaped family members. Grab a photographer and march up that hill/along the beach/through the woods. GET WED!
