Hi, I'm Selina
My name is Selina, I am 39 and I hail from a gorgeous village in Saddleworth Lancashire. I have been working with newly engaged couples for 15 years now, helping them to find their perfect wedding rings. I’m always so excited to hear about their plans and how they’ve got to this point. How they met and their proposal story. Ceremonies by Sel was born out of a love for people, love stories, weddings and celebrating all of life’s milestones.
If this Pandemic has taught us anything, it is that life is short, and all this madness has inspired me to want to help people beyond the doors of the jewellers. To celebrate who they are as a couple and a family, in their own way.
What's my ceremony style?
My style is relaxed, a bit bonkers, loving and fun. I’ve been told I have a knack for story telling and I love to make people laugh. I’m super adaptable, so I’ll be excited to create an intimate romantic ceremony as much as I’d buzz to put together a halloween inspired celebration or a festival feel!
I’m a friendly, funny, northern lass who has a love for words, stories, the weird and wonderful and a great big fat “CHEERS”
Why choose Selina?
I’m very down to earth, open to all kinds of ideas, themes and styles. I have a huge family so i’m no stranger to organised chaos or the unexpected.
I always try to see the funny side of things but i’m a sucker for romance and sentiment.
I will be with you throughout your planning process as much or as little as you need me.
By the time your big day comes around I will be a friendly familiar face to you.
What do I offer?
My ideal couple are super excited to marry each other, sounds obvious right?
I’ve met enough couples over the years to know that the ceremony is sometimes the part of the day that they want to get out of the way or they’ve put more investment into a photo booth than what they want to say in their vows.
All Ceremonies are unique and special but one with equal measurements of silliness, sentiment, surprises and audience participation would definitely be up there for me!
I will be available to you via email/phone/whatsapp/text throughout the whole planning process
And get to know you using some fun questionnaires.
I will create, write and perform your whole ceremony from scratch including your running order.
I will work into your ceremony, any readings, rituals or poems you have chosen and help you involve any family members who would like to be a part of the day.
I have lots of amazing and varied readings and rituals on file for you to explore.
I will be with you on the day 90 mins before the ceremony is due to start
I will welcome your guests and make any necessary tweaks or additions to the script before we start.
I will be around for approx 20 mins after the ceremony to clear my space (maybe grab a quick selfie with you lovely people!) and to congratulate you!
Why choose Selina for your wedding?
What does a wedding mean to you??
In amongst the menus and venue choices, colour schemes and favours, who’s sitting where and guest list trimming just don’t lose sight of the WHY!!
This is a celebration of your love!!
This is your day.
This is whatever YOU (as a couple) want it to be.
It should look like you, feel like you and sound like you ♥️
As your celebrant it’s my job to take your personalities and stuff ‘em right into your ceremony! I get it, I get why when you find a life partner, you want to just have a day with all your loved ones and say “we’ve blimmin well made it!”
I appreciate that the little things count and I’m invested in you from the start. I want to help you and I believe that as individuals, your ceremony should reflect who you are as a couple. I want to help you find the words and the ways to cement your commitment in front of your nearest and dearest and the world!

Renewal of Vows
My ideal couple would have a lot of stories to tell. It’s inevitable that they will have overcome challenges in their lives together and marriage and perhaps have a lot they could teach about it too!

Perfect and Priceless
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The reason for the delay is not because of the hangover from the wedding, we are still very much on a high, but more down to how do we describe the perfect day that you delivered for us; suffice to say we are still in awe of how you tailored the day as it was it was nothing short of perfect, in fact it went beyond perfect. I think it would have been easier for me to translate Portuguese than describe the emotions of how it made/still makes me feel!
The proof as they say, is in the pudding. The feedback from Adriana’s family, the Triathlon lads, they have described it a one of their best days and to me you are not going to get any better endorsement than that. They are quite tough task masters; I know I have been in their company for years and the main reason where I am today.
We are so grateful to you for delivering what you did, the wordsmithery the presentation, the comedy, the relaxed atmosphere was out of this world. For someone who was very apprehensive in standing up in front of a big crowd to start with and then going to a place where I would love to do it all again, is nothing short of a miracle and all this because of you !
From Adriana and I, we simply loved it and in or opinion is a complete no brainer for others to follow their hopes and dreams for the perfect day.
Keep up the excellent work and making more dreams happen; we will remember this for the rest of our days.
You are simply a credit to the service you provide and well deserving of all the accolades and plaudits your reviewers have provided.

Simply the Best!
Only 5 stars because I can’t give anymore! I knew from the moment I read Selena’s bio that she was the girl for me! My now husband wasn’t 100% invested as he thought it was someone who was going to say a few words and read our vows… Oh how he was wrong! Sel put so much time and effort into finding our about us, our lives and what type of ceremony we wanted, that she made it absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have wished for a more personal ceremony. We trusted her so much that we chose not to read the script before the ceremony and the surprise just made it even more memorable. If you’re looking for a celebrant to tell your story with emotion and a lot of laughter Sel is the celebrant for you! We cannot thank you enough for making our ceremony so special.
From the very beginning, Selina went above and beyond to make our ceremony perfect. We got to know her over phone calls due to COVID restrictions but by the time the day came around I felt like I’d always known her.
She created our story which was the perfect balance of humour and romance, which is what we wanted.
The guests made comments that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to as it was so personalised to us.
I would 100% recommend Selina for any ceremony. I just wish I could do it all over again.
