Where can we have our ceremony?
Almost anywhere. I've led ceremonies in people's homes, gardens, hotels, a zoo, on a boat…

Will you travel?
I will consider travelling anywhere in the UK/abroad. Usually I work in Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire.

You are an Independent Celebrant. What does that mean?
It means I create and lead non-religious, bespoke ceremonies. The term simply distinguishes me from a vicar or a registrar. I originally trained with the British Humanist Association (now Humanists UK) and I am currently registered with them. I am also comprehensively insured.

What is a humanist ceremony?
At its simplest level, it is a ceremony focused on the people at its heart. I often say my ceremonies are ‘humanist in nature, not in name’ by which I mean I’m not trying to convert anyone, I’m simply focused on creating the very best bespoke experience for them I can. If you’re looking for the sort of ceremony I create, that’s all that matters.

How much does it cost to hire you?
I price every ceremony individually if I can, and, where possible, offer flexible payment options, so just get in touch and we’ll crunch some numbers.

Are humanist weddings legally recognised here as they are in Scotland?
No, but it's a simple enough to resolve. Most couples sort the ‘paperwork’ at the Registry Office separately and regard their Humanist ceremony as the 'real' thing but there are other options I can talk you through.

We love the photos on your site. Can you recommend any good photographers?
