‘Hannah has been a delightful, warm and wise guide with a real talent for getting to the root of what we wanted to capture. We wanted something truly personal: her skill and experience gave us just that. She is brilliant.’ Lizzy + Mark
Celebrant | Consultant | Writer
Before this I was a secondary English teacher for 10+ years, ultimately as a Head of Department in Suffolk. Relocating to West Yorkshire, by chance I was introduced to the idea of training to be a Celebrant. It turned out to be the new challenge I had been waiting for.
Everything changed from there: timetables, bells and marking one minute; ceremonies, writing and self-employment the next. Different worlds, but luckily a host of transferable skills.
Starting life in 2010, YTD soon grew: over 10+ years I’ve had the pleasure of leading 300+ bespoke ceremonies for the widest client range imaginable.
However, the more ceremonies I designed, created and led, the more I began to realise the wider context in which my bespoke writing could flourish.
These early ideas have developed to the point where they’re now two separate sister businesses: ‘Words and Wisdom’ and ‘Portraits in Prose’.
Words and Wisdom offers versatile bespoke written elements which are designed to enhance any ceremony, reception or videography – this also includes legally compliant wedding scripts.
Portraits in Prose are bespoke text commissions celebrating life’s milestones that you then can frame, style or photo book – for yourself or an ideal gift.
This has opened up my bespoke writing to a whole new audience, UK-based and overseas, unrestricted by geography or my availability on a certain day.
Hannah Wroe Gill – Your Three Days
‘We knew we’d be privileged to have Hannah conduct our service. On the day, undaunted by severe weather, Hannah and her husband WALKED 10 miles, over the moors, to make sure she was there. Amazing!’ Melanie + Gareth
