Hi, I'm Nicola

Entwining readings, stories, heartfelt memories and music to ensure each ceremony is special, personal and memorable. I know how important these moments in our lives are and how they stay with us forever, I believe each ceremony should be as truly unique as we are.

What's my ceremony style?
I write from the heart, telling the story of a love story, life or a new family with love, passion, romance, humour, and honesty but always telling your story your way. I promise to help you create the ceremony of your dreams that reflects your personalities, personal beliefs and your values.

Nicola you did amazing
I would never have dreamed of leaving a review for my eldest child’s funeral.
Yet here I am… Nicola you did amazing, you held it together when we would have failed and your birthday twin would have been proud, wish he had heard your laugh, which we only just discovered 6 months later when you came to check in us.
Amazing lady thank you
We were lucky enough to find Nicola who gave us a Ceremony we’ll never forgot.
We chose Nicola as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony in August 2022, and we can’t recommend her highly enough. For anyone looking for a personable and enjoyable ceremony that they will cherish for a lifetime you needn’t look any further.
Nicola was brilliant. She met with us beforehand to really understand us as a couple and to ensure the ceremony encapsulated everything we asked of and more. She put us at ease and helped us throughout the planning process, which was so helpful given we had lots to organise for our big day!
All our guests said how lovely our ceremony was and that it was the best they’ve ever experienced. It was such a personal and fun service which is exactly what we had imagined. It was the perfect way to celebrate our marriage and really set the foundations for the most special day with our close family and friends.
We had initially planned to use a registrar for our ceremony; however, we’re so pleased we decided to choose a celebrant instead and were lucky enough to find Nicola who gave us a ceremony we’ll never forgot.
Thanks again to Nicola for everything!

Choosing you as our Celebrant was the best decision we made!
We absolutely loved working with you! We are so impressed how wholeheartedly composed the ceremony was. It was so heartfelt and magical, it was exactly how we imagined it to be AND MORE. You truly set the the tone for an incredible and unforgettable day. We must applaud you for your first Filipino ceremony. You did amazing! All of our guests were in awe and taken by surprise.
From the start, we instantly clicked and the rest is history! Choosing you as our celebrant was the easiest and one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning. You radiated such a warm, understanding and accommodating aura that made everything so easy. We couldn’t recommend you enough! Thank you so so so much
