A funky poem!
Let’s start with an idea; Shall we say… your wedding… your way?
Let’s nurture that thought… you know… your ball…your court.
It’s starting to get exciting now, as we build in your readings and vows,
The music, the story of where you met & how.
The laughter, the tears, shared hopes and all those dreams,
Turned into a reality, as everyone around you beams.
Let’s build it to a crescendo of pure unadulterated love…
All made possible when you find the right celebrant that fits you like a glove.
#FunkyCelebrant® is my moniker, weddings and celebrations my game,
Creating a dream ceremony with you and for you… my passion and aim!
Drop me an email, let’s have a quick chat & give all those with a penchant for them, a reason to buy a new hat!
Why choose a Celebrant…
Because we offer a real alternative to the ‘everyday’. You are no longer restricted to just a religious celebration, or indeed just a non-religious celebration.
With an independent celebrant anything and anybody can be incorporated.
Have you ever dreamed of holding your ceremony in a bluebell wood, on the beach, during a solstice or as a character from your favourite book, TV show or film?
I can help you realise your dreams for your special day.
About Your Funky Celebrant®…
I am an Award Winning certified Independent Wedding and Family Celebrant registered with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants (U.K.).
I live in beautiful Constable Country on the Essex / Suffolk border with my husband, and our menagerie of pets! Fudge & Buttons, our choccie labs and Crookshanks the cat.
I travel extensively through the East Anglian region conducting ceremonies of all sorts. And I have even been known to go north of the Watford Gap and the M25 corridor on forays into my home region to conduct ceremonies in the Midlands. (I always come back with my accent reinvigorated when I do… yay!) I am happy to travel nationally and internationally…as the saying goes, have passport…will travel!
We have celebrated all rites of passage within our own family, from birth to death, and as a result I have first hand knowledge about just how important it is to be able to hold the ceremony that truly reflects you and yours.
I love celebrating love in all of its multicoloured and multifaceted glory. I love having fun; and I especially LOVE the fact that you and your guests are having fun too!
As a self-confessed Potterhead, this Hufflepuff finds herself living in a Muggle world and having the best fun! Spreading a little bit of magic, I inject a little bit of my personality into the writing of your script; and then ultimately into the delivery of your ceremony on the day. You’ll never have anything ‘beige’… your ceremony will be full of colour and light!
Whatever the type of ceremony you choose it should be magical for you, for all the right reasons!
You are guaranteed a fun filled celebration, delivered in a relaxed and inclusive manner, that perfectly reflects you as a couple or as a family!
What I can offer you…
I provide bespoke ceremonies to mark every rite of passage.
From pregnancy, birth and child naming/adoption and step-family celebrations, to engagements, wedding, commitment and vow renewal celebrations.
I am now also pleased to announce that I have added memorial and scattering of ashes ceremonies to my portfolio, so you can truly honour your loved ones through all of life’s stages.
Want to mark a milestone at work? I offer corporate ceremonies too! Wether you are saying goodbye to a cherished colleague or celebrating a big team ‘win’ I can create something perfect for you.
We’ll work together with face-to-face consultations, or Skype calls, as we design a unique ceremony just for you.
For weddings & commitment ceremonies, a practice is included in the price; and for every ceremony, you will receive a keepsake script in a presentation box with a certificate.
No restrictions… anyone and anything can be incorporated. From vows & readings, to symbolic and traditional or faith based rituals. You can even involve your family pets!
And…I’ve even been known to dress for the occasion (I don’t need much of an excuse!)
If you have a theme that you’d like me to join in with just let me know. (Especially if it’s Harry Potter related!)
You now have choices like never before, to make your special day truly unique to you as an individual, a couple, or as a family.
Let’s have a chat to see how I can be of assistance.
I work closely with my husband Kevin, who is a wedding photographer at HeadOverHeelsPhotography.
He knows just how to capture the special moments during a celebrant led wedding.
You can view some of his stunning work here.
In November 2017 I was announced as the Eastern Region TWIA 2018 Celebrant Of The Year.
It was the first time that these awards had included a celebrant only category. I am so proud to be flying the flag for all celebrants in our region. As you can see, I am passionate and excitable about the industry in which I work; and I believe we should be having fun as we celebrate life and love!
Come on that journey with me as we create the ceremony that reflects you perfectly!
