Non-religious wedding

Wedding & Civil Partnership


(Plus travel expenses if more than 30 miles outside of Macclesfield, Cheshire) 

Let's tell your love story to everyone you know!  Whether you want traditional, quirky, spiritual, fun or something really low key, I will enjoy writing and conducting a personal and unique ceremony for you.

Why choose a Celebrant?

No restrictions! You can hold your ceremony WHEREVER you want! Want to celebrate on a beach, in a field, in a woodland, on a boat, on a spaceship, on a roller coaster, or in Great Auntie Betty’s garden?!  No problem! Well, OK, the spaceship might be a bit tricky but get the picture? The venue doesn’t have to be licensed, you can have your ceremony anywhere … within reason! 

Vows & Promises

Don’t want to stick to the regular vows? No problem! You can write your own vows and promises. They can be mushy, funny, long, short or traditional and you can say whatever you like. No restrictions!  


You can include religion … or not. It’s your choice. It’s your day.  Want to involve your lovely family and friends?  Do it!  You can include symbolic actions such as unity candles, sand blending, handfasting, ring warming, a wish tree or make one up to suit you!   

The legal bits

Is a celebrant-led wedding legally bound? No, but (and it’s a big but!) do NOT panic.  Most couples choose to complete the legalities a day or two before the ceremony in a quick, simple 15-minute meeting at your local Register office which, depending on your borough, can cost only around £50.  You just need to take along 2 witnesses, say the legal wording and sign the certificate.  You don’t even need to swap rings at the Register Office if you don't want to.  You can save that, along with all the fun stuff, for your celebrant-led wedding celebration ceremony with me!  I'll even provide a certificate for you to sign on the day.

So, what’s included?


Let’s meet! 

  • A free of charge no-obligation meeting or phone call where you can explain a bit more about what you're looking for, I can answer any questions and you can decide if I'm the right celebrant for you.
  • One face-to-face meeting to run through your ideas and plans so I can create a bespoke ceremony for you. We could do it on Skype if you’re far away. 
  • A fun ‘couples quiz’ so I can really get to know you!
  • If you’re not writing your own vows, I can help with some ideas.
  • Help with choosing poems and readings.
  • Option to include a symbolic action.
  • Unlimited revisions of your draft ceremony script to make sure you’re absolutely, totally happy with it. 

On the day! 

  • Co-ordination with your venue, wedding planner, photographer and musicians to make sure everything runs to plan. I’ll make sure anyone who’s got a part to play – best man/woman, bridesmaids or readers know exactly what they’re doing and when! Oh, and of course not forgetting giving you an amazing and memorable ceremony! 

And there’s more?  

Yes! I’ll give you a souvenir copy of your ceremony script to treasure forever ❤️
