Hi, I'm Piers

2020 CELEBRANT OF THE YEAR – YORKSHIRE & THE NORTH EAST

Looking for a ceremony which is:

• a friendly, fun and relaxed occasion?

• full of meaning, emotion & memories?

• unique to you?

then give me a call. This is what I do!

I’ve created hundreds of bespoke occasions for couples who value the ceremony as much as the whole wedding day, and who want to know they are in the capable, experienced, but relaxed hands of a professional. Or how about a naming or welcome ceremony for a new addition to the family? And, of course, I’m alongside families when the time comes to say farewell to a loved one, helping their family and friends share in a funeral that is personal, heartfelt and full of meaning.

Worried about your wedding day? I also act as Wedding Day Coordinator for many couples, which means not only making announcements, but overseeing the smooth running of a wedding day. This service gives real peace of mind to you as a couple, and I can work in tandem with a planner, or on my own if you are doing a DIY wedding day. You make the plans and I’ll make sure they happen.

I’d love to meet you and hear your story. Let’s talk!

Have another event that wold benefit from a professional host and presenter? Get in touch – tell me your requirements.

What's my ceremony style?

The ceremonies I create and lead are noted for their combination of traditional and contemporary elements, with original words created for a totally bespoke occasion. I’m delighted when we develop a ceremony to reflect aspects of your background and tradition.

My style is friendly and approachable but I’m also very organised.

At weddings, I ensure that all your guests feel included and am able to put people at ease right at the beginning of the ceremony. I have a wealth of creative ideas, meaning that every single ceremony is unique. As your Celebrant, I’ll involve you in the creative process, and you’ll feel a real sense of partnership as we develop your special day.

At welcome or naming ceremonies, I’ll help you create an occasion which is family-centred, celebrating your values, hopes and dreams in ways that are fun, memorable and inclusive of all ages.

At funerals, I don’t only take care of the ceremony, I take care of people.

I take ancient rituals such as handfasting and candle lighting and creatively develop them into new and original ideas. And I’ll encourage you to explore ways of developing rituals that are totally and uniquely you. One couple, for example, planted a lemon tree so that every time they have a gin and tonic and use one of their own lemons, they’ll be reminded of their wedding day! This summer one couple are blending two types of rum to symbolise the coming together of two individual spirits, whilst another are planning to deliver their rings across a lake by remote control hovercraft (what could possibly go wrong?!) There’s no end to the creativity I can help you bring to your wedding ceremony.

And the location is important too – I love exploring different layouts for a ceremonies from a traditional forward facing ceremony to one in the round, and have even created a two-path labyrinth for a wedding ceremony.

In short, there are no rules, only possibilities.

Wedding | 06/24/2017 | South of France

We’d love to say a huge thank you to Piers for marrying us in France on 24th June 2017. It was such a perfect day and Piers made sure that everything went with only one hitch… ours!! Wedding planning can get stressful but it was really helpful to draw on Pier’s experience in planning our wedding day which meant we were able to have a wedding that we really wanted filled with personal touches and surrounded by our friends and family. We felt encouraged and guided in this process from beginning to end and we would thoroughly recommend his services. Piers is a calm, kind, experienced, trustworthy and an all round lovely person and having someone like that involved in your most special day is all you need to make it amazing! You’ll be in very good hands!!Katie & Maciek

Aaahhh where do we start! Piers is simply a natural! We had so many comments about the way he conducted the ceremony, his voice, the words, the way he made us stand so all could see, the little things really did contribute to our special day.From the get go we built a great rapport, regular FaceTimes and quick response to all my OTT naggy bride to be questions, really helped put my mind at ease and I knew I could trust Piers.You always listened and gave suggestions as to what would make a great ceremony, one to fit in with the characters we are.Piers came to see both myself and Husband to be on the morning of the wedding to run through any last minute changes/questions which was a lovely touch.Piers, you are wonderful! Can’t thank you enough for being you and for making our ceremony as special as it was. Will miss the emails!! Xxxxxxxx

Piers certainly pulled together an elopement ceremony beyond my wildest dreams. I was so impressed with the attention to detail and his intuitive ability to create something very personal for both of us. With such short notice, he certainly rose to the occasion. We regard him very highly and if we were to do it again we wouldn’t change a thing (except maybe invite a few guests). Piers feels like family now!
