Love is, indeed, ‘a many splendid thing’ and a couple’s ceremony, in any form, is your opportunity to declare in public or private, how very splendid it makes you feel.

With any celebrant led ceremony you are not constrained by conventions of any sort. I’ll be there to guide, encourage and support. Start dreaming! See below for some popular couples ceremonies.

‘Imagination is the most marvellous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.



Looking for a celebrant to conduct your wedding ceremony in Cumbria? Look no further!

There have never been so many choices for your wedding day. You could go down the traditional route with a religious church wedding, a simpler registry office event or a personalised, bespoke ceremony that’s all about you. If you choose option  3, then you’ll need a celebrant.

You deserve a personalised, fun, relaxed, sincere, inclusive ceremony, full of love, hope and JOY.

Think outside the box. The opportunity for the wedding you’ve dreamed of is real. You CAN do whatever you want! *You will need to do the legal part with a registrar at some point, before, during or after your celebrant led ceremony.

Your ceremony, your way. I’m here to guide you, help you and encourage you. Together we will create the best ceremony, with you as a couple at the very core. 

How does it work?

Let’s get to know each other. We can meet up, either in person or online, whatever suits you best, and chat.

I’ll send you both a ‘Couples’ Questionnaire’ to complete separately.  You return it to me and I’ll begin the script for your ceremony. I’ll write your love story, help you create your vows and suggest appropriate romantic and fun symbolic acts. Hand tying, unity candle, a quick quiz or sing along, sharing a tipple to toast your union. Each ceremony is as unique as you are.

I’ll send you a booking form and ask for a deposit to secure the date. You’ll have me, your celebrant, exclusively for your chosen date. There won’t be any time pressures.

I’ll be available to you to chat, discuss, adapt and dream right up until the ceremony and beyond, in friendship.

*Although I am close to the Scottish Border, I’m afraid that I can’t officiate a legal marriage in Scotland.

Fee: From £650 for 2025 (added costs for optional extras and travel/accommodation expenses depending on venue location.)



Commitment Ceremonies are perfect for couples (of any gender) who wish to make a public declaration of commitment and love to each other.

Renewal of Vows

A vow renewal ceremony is a wonderful way to reaffirm the love and commitment a married couple (of any gender) share, and it often takes place when the couple reach a milestone anniversary.

There are no rules for the content or location of this ceremony. It’s a super opportunity to tell the story of your life together since you first married. The family that you have created for yourselves can get involved or not. You may wish for something secret, solemn, spiritual and just for you two.

Fee: From £400.
