Hi, I'm Vicky

I’m Vicky, and it is my mission and my privilege to create beautiful and bespoke ceremonies for all those important milestones in your life. From the happiest moments of a wedding or bringing a child into the family, to those sad and challenging times when you say goodbye and all points in between.

Being independent, I provide an alternative to religious ceremonies, civil ceremonies or indeed Humanist ones. I can bring whatever elements you like to your ceremony, blending cultures and faiths if need be or none at all.

I provide weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies, naming and adoption ceremonies, identity affirmations as well as funerals and memorials.

What's my ceremony style?

I am authentic, genuine, warm and am a great teller of stories. I strike the perfect balance. If you’re looking for someone you can trust, and warm to, you’re in safe hands. However, I’m still young enough and off beat enough to not be staid and stuffy. In short, I’m not the celebrant with wacky hair and amazing rainbow outfits (I have tried, I just can’t pull off the look!) but I’m not turning up in a twin set and pearls either!

My ceremonies (regardless of what they are) are heartfelt, genuine and reflective of the story YOU want to tell. I pride myself on each one being created for you, with you, and not from a script. I’m a romantic, have a relaxed and laid-back style and occasionally, I’ll even make you laugh.

Let’s talk, and see if we click!

Why choose Vicky?

My life, career and experiences have led me to be the celebrant I am today. My passion is celebrating the unique, beautiful and diverse nature of all of us. We are not all the same, so why should those ceremonies be cooker cutter, or from the same box labelled “wedding” or “funeral”?

I am a member of the LGBTQ+ family and an ally for trans and alternative lifestyles. You don’t have to explain your relationships to me – I get it.

What do I offer?

Weddings

My ideal couple are the couple who want to reflect themselves in their wedding, who want it to be bespoke, unique to them and want to do things a little differently. My favourite type of ceremony is one where there’s an element of informality. It’s relaxed, and focused on the couple and their love for eachother. I also love it when families and closest people are invited to be a part of the wedding.

I offer the type of wedding YOU want. Anything from a huge stately home or castle, to an outdoor woodland wedding or elopement and everything in between. I’ll work with you to create the perfect ceremony around your wants and desires.

I can build rituals such as sand ceremonies, hand tying, candle ceremonies, tree planting, ring warming – and so many more beautiful ways to demonstrate your love and commitment.

I will provide you with the script beforehand with the opportunity for you to edit and change as much as you like. There’ll also be a beautiful presentation set for you at the end.

I can even arrange to coach those people in your wedding party who want to ‘do a speech’ in public speaking and presentation beforehand, so they’re less nervous and can enjoy the day.

Why choose Vicky for your wedding?

Your wedding day is the ultimate, romantic declaration of love and commitment. Your path to this day is as unique and beautiful as your love, so why shouldn’t your wedding be the same? ​

We can do that in a beautiful way. You want a Humanist or non religious approach? Can do! Any time of day, any location.

Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is becoming an increasingly popular option for parents who want to celebrate the birth of their child and welcome them into the world when a Christening or other religious ceremony isn’t the right choice for them. It introduces your baby (or child of any age) to the world and their network of love and support who will form part of their early life and beyond.

Naming ceremonies have no legal or religious components to them, which gives you the opportunity to be as creative and meaningful as you like. You can have a naming ceremony in your own home, outside in a garden or park, at a hotel, in a community center or hall – wherever you want. You can build whatever elements you like in to the ceremony including readings, poems, music, promises or rituals such as sand ceremonies or candle lighting. You could even plant a tree as part of the ceremony.

Funerals

I believe that as each life lived is unique, so should be the send off they receive. For some people, the traditional funeral is the right and perfect choice for them. For some people, they want to do something a little different. Or both.

At ceremonies and milestones, I work with you to craft the perfect funeral, memorial ceremony or celebration of life. Sombre, or joyous. At the crematorium or a natural burial site, or even at entirely independent venue where you can gather to tell stores and celebrate the person. In the weeks following their death, or in the months following. The choice is yours.

Following the funeral, I’ll provide a full presentation pack containing the service and eulogy for you to keep.

Why choose Vicky for your funeral?

Sometimes funerals are full of stories and love of a long life, well lived.

Sometimes, they aren’t. I have experience of attending cookie cutter funeral services where I couldn’t see my loved one reflected in the ceremony. It’s my commitment that in any funeral service I take, the person they were is at the centre of the ceremony.

I provide authentic ceremonies which aren’t just cookie cutter. The celebration of a person’s life should reflect that life. And that celebration can be as joyous and happy for the fact that they lived, as it is sad for the loss their death leaves us with.

Not quite a wedding – a slightly different review

Wedding | 02/25/2023 | Moulton, Cheshire

This isn’t a review for a wedding, but the warmth, storytelling and love she showed were the reason I would wholeheartedly recommend her…

Vicky Green was full amazing self at Acoustic @Moulton last night.
As well as being a highly regarded speaker, trainer and fabulous MC, this very talented multi faceted woman is also a celebrant… You couldn’t choose a more friendly, compassionate, and professional person to conduct your special ceremony.
One in a million!

Many thanks for your celebrant role for my mums funeral. You gave a warm, supportive, compassionate and dignified role.

You were professional from the start to the end. I felt from time with you that really knew my mum and family to be able to deliver such a service

Funeral | 01/11/2022 | Yorkshire

I cannot express my gratitude enough to thank Vicky for the remarkable job she did with Ray’s eulogy.
Her ability to draw information from us without labouring or struggling and then painting such a vivid picture of what kind of man he was and what a life he lead, is very special. She was able to evoke warm and happy memories and pay a more than fitting tribute to a very special man, without ever having met him.
A truly gifted celebrant, thank you.
