Why choose ?

What do I offer?



I am an Independant Wedding Celebrant with a passion for learning and creating something unique for every Ceremony.
No two couples are ever the same because their Love is theirs and their journey belongs to them.
That is the most interesting and exciting part of this business and it is an honor to ‘Bee’ part of someone’s special day.

From a couple who have literally eloped from their home Country to run away into the Lake District to weddings on lavish lawns, beaches, barns or some of the worlds finest hotels, you will all receive the same love, respect and service from me as your Celebrant. We will work closely to inspire elements you may not have thought about. My goal is to ensure you feel confident and stress free when your big day arrives, so that you can both enjoy and revel in the Ceremony itself before moving onto your Celebrations. I work well with venues and wedding planners however, I am available to book directly should you wish to consider a more intimate, sustainable Ceremony , for example in your own garden perhaps. You can contact me through this directory or review my website at – Could I ‘Bee’ right for you? @birdsandbees_celebrant_uk_uae

Why choose for your wedding?

I hope future couples would choose me for my relaxed yet capable character. I like to meet couples in person preferably, for a no obligation chat to see if I am the right fit for them. Where possible, I like to meet them again before their Ceremony to ensure we are all on the same page and run through the Ceremony. This helps take away any stresses they may have about that part of the day. I will really listen to their requirements and guide them with a huge element of heart and soul guaranteed. When meeting in person is not possible, we can work very well over other platforms as long as we keep communicating. I am very used to working with clients on different time zones and shift patterns too so can be flexible.


Naming Ceremonies

I wonder what my name will ‘Bee’?

Ceremony really matters for any rite of passage and giving your baby their name is just the start of their journey.
Perhaps you are welcoming an adopted child into your family and you would like a ceremony to welcome them into their new family.
Siblings, other family members and friends can all be involved in so many ways to show their love, delight and support for the future of this child.

Why choose for your naming ceremony?

When our Son was born, I had his name carved in my heart way before he arrived. When he arrived, his name just seemed to suit him.
We had spent hours talking about this name and what it would mean to us and often couples choose a name which has deep rooted meaning to them and the whole family. Others just cant decide until the baby arrives. There is no right or wrong and its great fun along the way. Either way, when you officially introduce your child to their name surrounded by those important to you – there is no better reason to celebrate.


Renewal of Vows

Working with a couple on their renewal is a privilege and can be extremely deep and emotional. You can bet I wouldn’t bat an eyelid at your reasons for wanting to do this. That’s what makes life interesting and renews my faith in Love and humanity.
I will work with you both to get the best out of both of you. Elements of surprise and symbolic elements can make a Vow Renewal so unique and will have you feeling all excited and ‘in love’ all over again.

I actually prefer to refer to it as ‘Reviewing your Nows’ because we really only have the now!

Why choose for your renewal of vows?

Marriage is not an endless bed of roses. There are times that can really put your marriage to the test.
Life happens and at some point, you may feel like you both have completely different things you would like to promise each other for your future years ( especially after surviving a pandemic together right ).

Copy of Copy of forever in heart


With life there is death and sadly there is so much to think about during this difficult and emotional time.
Trained through the Institute of Professional Celebrants for funeral celebrancy & The Funeral Academy for funeral arranging/care of the body & mortuary management, I will work closely with you to create and deliver the final farewell aligned to your personal values.
Saying goodbye to a loved one is no easy task. Utilising the skills of a Professional Funeral Celebrant can help immensely.
As an Independent Celebrant, I will work closely with you and your chosen Funeral Director to ensure respect, dignity and understanding, at all times.

Through my own personal experiences and transition through this life, I have come to realise that creating an end of life Ceremony is just the start of an emotional journey. I will take time to listen, to capture what is really important to you at this sad time in order to create a truly personalised tribute, I will write the service from the heart, accurately depicting the deceased to celebrate their life.

As a Celebrant, my role is to ensure that you and your family feel safe and confident in my ability to deliver a Ceremony that will support you and your family.
A Secular Ceremony allows freedom of wording and symbolic elements in a way that is appropriate to your values. We are able to offer acknowledgement to a particular belief system should that be important too without making it the main focus of the service.

Why choose for your funeral?

I hope families would choose me for my relaxed yet genuine and capable character. Meeting families in person where possible, really helps them to understand the process of what will happen on the day and give them someone to lean on at a time most needed. Everyone will be treated with respect, care and humility and can be assured of a heartfelt service.

Could not recommend Kerrie enough. Kerrie led the service for one of my funerals that I conducted, and it was absolutely perfect. The family and I were so pleased with the service, and also the care and compassion that Kerrie showed throughout the funeral arrangements.


The most perfect wedding ceremony!

Kerrie did such an incredible job writing and delivering our ceremony. She managed to capture both of our personalities and our relationship so so well. The ceremony was absolutely perfect for us, she kept it light hearted but still super emotional and meaningful. She brought the memory of loved ones in to the ceremony in such a tasteful way, and made our families, bridal party and groomsmen feel very much a part of the ceremony. She was amazingly patient with the dogs and the little ones and so many people have told me how beautiful the ceremony was. There was lots of tears and lots of laughter, and we are left with the most beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. Her warmth and love really shone through. We really, really cannot recommend her enough!! Thank you Kerrie 🤍

Hi Kerrie,

Hope you’re keeping well and warm up there in Carlisle.

We’ve been on honeymoon and are just starting to come down from the wedding and get back to normality, but before we do, we just wanted to send you the most heartfelt of thank you.

You made our wedding day! We cannot begin to describe how much we value and will treasure what you did for us. We didn’t quite realise it until afterwards, but the ceremony really does set the tone for the entire day. We’ve both been to so many weddings where the ceremony was the part you just want to rush through, because it’s either way too preachy or it’s just a little boring. But you have set the bar for all future ceremonies!

We, and every single guest, were completely blown away by it. It was the most beautiful ceremony I’ve ever witnessed, and the fact that it was for our very own wedding day is just so special. Our friends and family were all so impressed and touched. We had so many comments – one of Dave’s friends messaged us days later to say he’d been “affected by the wedding”. So much so that his wife asked if he enjoyed it more than their own. My cousin said it was the most honest and beautiful ceremony she’d ever been to. The list goes on, we were all just blown away.

I think what really stands out to us though is the amount of effort you put in to getting to know us and making sure it was just perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything better, it was just so special.

We just wanted you to know how much it meant to us and how much we’ll treasure it in our hearts forever. Thank you for making our wedding day so special, and giving us a memory that will last our entire lifetime.

You are incredible, thank you for being our celebrant. We feel very lucky to have found you.

We want to do it all again haha!

With love,

Karen and Dave xxx
