Hi I'm Grace

As a Professional Celebrant, I am often asked What is a Celebrant? I am delighted to offer my services to help you understand and to prepare and conduct bespoke ceremonies for every occasion.

My experience in guiding people through these personal events started in 1995, when I carried out my first Funeral.

As my role as a celebrant evolved, I was asked more and more to carry out initially Spiritualist Marriages and Funerals and this very soon began to include Naming Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows and has now expanded to all manner of ceremonies including multi faith, naturist and simple non-religious ceremonies.

With a lifelong love of ‘words’ and ‘stories’ it seemed a natural progression to offer my services as an Independent Celebrant, which brings us to the present day!

I absolutely cherish the diversity of my role – it is a huge responsibility to extract exactly the right information, in order to create something unique, meaningful and appropriate, each and every time!

Being a Celebrant is the greatest pleasure and privilege – I would be honoured to work with you, whatever occasion is being celebrated or commemorated,

What's my ceremony style?

I am happy to embrace absolutely any idea or theme!

Your day – your rules!

I simply love to help couples wanting to enter into a binding, loving, life long relationship, plan and carry out their wonderful day.

I find that it's not just a case of turning up on the day and performing a wedding service, my role sometimes takes on the role of advisor, assistant and mentor. It's all about giving you the perfect day to launch the next part of your new adventure as husband and wife.

I like to be very flexible in creating the service of your dreams and will arrange for any official requirements to be made to ensure your day is perfect.
