Hi, I'm Carol

Thank you for popping onto my profile to find out about me
If you are looking for a celebrant to lead your ceremony, I am passionate about telling your precious stories for each and everyone
“Love is all around” whether this is for a wedding, vowel renewal, baby naming or Funeral. It is so important that we work together to capture the moment.
Working in Health & Social Care in varying roles, trained as a nurse and social worker, I have the ideal skills in being able to talk to people with ease, and build trusted relationships, that will make you feel comfortable.
2020 was a huge year for me as I made the decision to set up my own business and trained as a celebrant with the International College of Professional Celebrants. This has opened a whole new exciting career for me, using my lifelong skills. I have already worked with some wonderful clients.
I am blessed to have been married to my wonderful husband Russell for 31 years, we are still as in love, as the day we married and share beautiful memories along the way.
Spending precious time, with family and friends is important to us, supporting each other through the good times, and times when we all need that little extra love.
It’s also worth saying I am funny, and have a great sense of humour; after all we all need a smile and laughter in our day!
I also love cooking, photography, walking, gardening and holidays where we can explore.
Being creative, which is ideal when you are a celebrant, as we have imagination, and skills to adapt your ceremony style to how you want it to be?
I am delighted to have such a wonderful job and meeting so many people, be it someone wanting to book me as their celebrant or all the great suppliers I work alongside, we are a really talented lot!
It would be a pleasure to work closely with you to develop what you would like to see evolve for your occasion.
I always offer a no obligation video chat in the first instance to see if I am the person you are looking for.
The getting to know you well is the best part, of developing your ceremony with you, and building on those lifetime moments.
Let’s do this together

What's my ceremony style?

I love to build on the love that people show to each other, to explore and deliver the very best ceremony it can be. Venues for these ceremonies are important to build the ambiance for the ceremony and celebration that may be happening. I find it very easy to start a conversation, and build rapport with people, we can then start building the ideal ceremony together. As I say ” lets do this together” . I am focused and calm.If people are not sure what they want I would encourage them to say what first comes into their mind, then I sow further seeds that will help, to get a good end result. . I am imaginative and quick to find solutions for whatever may come my way.

The Perfect Celebrant

5 Stars
Mark and Lisa Howson

Wedding | 09/25/2022 | The Reid Rooms

We first saw Carol Late last year at another wedding venue, and we were very impressed with her array of wedding itinerary, and we were most impressed with the hand fasting ceremony that she could conducted during our wedding.

We had several conversations either in person, through Watts App or through facetime discussing what we wanted and how we wanted it delivered. She was very professional and had many ideas which would help organise our ceremony and to make it how we wanted it. Carol understood we wanted our day to be quite unique and she helped us tweak our vows so it would be perfect on the day. She has a fountain of knowledge and had a very charming and most importantly calming manner to herself.

She helped to put us on ease during the big day especially my partner Lisa who suffers with anxiety and made her feel calm and relaxed before walking down the aisle.

Carol made us a keep’s sake box which had the hand fastening ribbon, vows and the celebrant certificate. This was a nice touch and showed the dedication and expertness she puts into her work, when she is collaborating with couples.

We highly recommend Carol as a celebrant, and she would make sure that she created the perfect wedding day for you and your partner.

Wedding | 03/09/2022 | Essex

Carol recently conducted the most beautiful ceremony for my best friend and her husband. The ceremony was extremely warm, personal and emotion filled the room. It was clear that so much thought and dedication went into planning the ceremony with beautiful words from Carol. She provides so much support to the bride and groom in the lead up to ensure their ceremony is exactly how they wish. Thank you, Carol! x

The most magical ceremony ever

Becky & Fraser

Wedding | 03/09/2022 | The Wedding Barn at Old Hall

In early September, Carol crafted the most magical wedding ceremony for us. It was all the right shades of funny, loving and compassionate. Carol supported us on writing our vows, and also worked closely with our bridesmaids and groomsmen for surprise words of appreciation for us. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience during our 30 minute ceremony. Our intimate wedding involved just family and extremely close friends, all our guests can’t stop raving about Carol and how her words made the room fill with love and laughter.

We can’t thank you enough for making our special days even more magical.
