Hi, I'm Gary

I love celebrating Life and Love, that is why I have been a Celebrant since 2004!

In that time, I have helped numerous families, and couples, at a most joyous and exciting time to plan and deliver the ceremony that they want for the Wedding of their Dreams.

I have obtained the Diploma in Couples and Naming Celebrancy, the only national qualification in this field approved by Ofqual.
I am also a qualified teacher and university lecturer. So, I know how to talk to audiences.

It is my belief that every person is unique. Therefore, every ceremony should uniquely reflect the lives and love of the people being celebrated. As such, it is my duty to create and deliver an authentic, personal and meaningful ceremony that shouts out your personality and love to the world!

I will work with you to create a wedding ceremony that is all about you two, that makes you and your guests laugh and cry!

What's my ceremony style?

I create tailor-made, Fabulous Ceremonies to reflect and celebrate the story of your love and commitment to each other. From the Fabulous and traditional to the Fabulously unconventional Wedding Ceremony.

As a lover of all things spiritual and human, I will create a ceremony that shouts out who you are. Weddings and Vow Renewals that have your stamp on them. Naming Ceremonies that rejoice in the privilege of welcoming a new child into the family and community.

Being me makes me different from billions of others! I am a cockney who lives in Liverpool! I don’t like convention or authority. I am eclectic in my tastes and love the traditional and the unconventional.
I am a number 4 on the enneagram! So, look at me! I’m special, I’m fabulous!

I am a contradiction because I love the spiritual and true self, but I don’t believe in an interventionist, God!

Love is love especially yours!

That’s me, folks!

Weddings

My ideal couple are in love! They just want to be together forever and want the world to know. They want to share their special day with family and friends with a lovely wedding ceremony that is really all about them and their love for each other. My ideal couple are fun, friendly and relaxed. They don’t take themselves too seriously but do know how to have a good laugh!

My favourite ceremony type is romantic and a true expression of your love for each other. It is a ceremony where we can have some laughs and tell your story with romance with some tears and lumps in the throat! I love themes and always join in with the vibe.

Every couple is unique. Therefore, every ceremony should uniquely reflect the life and love of the people being celebrated. As such, it is my duty to create and deliver an authentic, personal and meaningful ceremony that shouts out your personality and love to the world!

Gary is an amazing, adaptable, and easygoing celebrant, who works with you. He is willing to build your perfect day step by step until you and your partner are happy with the final draft for your ceremony. He will also change and add bits last minute if you are not happy with or forget to tell him something. He is a very kind and thoughtful person who strives to make your day amazing.

Wedding | 05/27/2022 | Hillbark Hotel CH48 5HL

We were looking for a celebrant to do our ceremony for our second wedding (1st one was heavily restricted by that pandemic). We looked around at a few celebrants but when we came across Gary, it just felt like the right fit. We met and spoke a few times before the big day and filled in a couple of questionnaires so we could get to know each other and so Gary could really get a sense of what we were like as a couple and bring that into the ceremony. It was all worth it because, on the big day, it felt like we had somebody who was really invested in us to tell our story. The ceremony made us laugh and think and feel, it just reflected us and our story.

Gary offered for us to see the script beforehand and make as many changes as we wanted so that we could make sure it was just right but we chose not to see most of it because we wanted it to be a surprise and I’m so glad we did. It was in Gary’s good hands and meant we could hear it all for the first time along with our guests and genuinely laugh and experience it with them. We got lots of our guests saying how brilliant Gary and the ceremony were.

If you’re looking for a celebrant to authentically tell your story in a ceremony with a good few laughs thrown in, Gary’s your man.

Hi Gary

I’ve been meaning to message you for a while. Thanks so much for your expert celebrantship (if indeed that is a word) of our wedding (June 2) The guests were amazed at your knowledge and insight and couldn’t believe that we hadn’t known you for years! It was such a special day to which your contribution was central and very much appreciated by Janette and I.
