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!

What a Wonderful Celebrant

Wedding in WA16 7NE
What a wonderful celebrant!

Gary was an incredible celebrant who added so much to our Wedding. Planning a Wedding during Covid was always going to be a challenge, but throughout it all Gary was a joy to work with. Multiple Zoom conversations to produce the most perfect, personalised ceremony. Gary captured the perfect blend of humour and sentiment. He even got on board with our subtle theme.

Hi Gary,

We would like to thank you for the lovely service you held for Mum on 8th March.
Mum’s death was very sudden and unexpected and we were all in a state of shock so your kindness and patience was much appreciated.

Many Thanks
David, Pauline, Beverley, Gareth and all the family

Celebration of Life Service

Funeral | 02/04/2022 | Springwood Crematorium Chapel

Gary was incredibly sensitive, supportive and professional. He conducted a beautiful celebration of life service and delivered the eulogy with warmth, empathy, kindness, compassion and respect. His service provided great comfort to our family and helped us to get through a very difficult and sad occasion. We received so many compliments about Gary’s service from both family and friends and feel the ceremony couldn’t have been any better. It was a lovely send off for our Dad and would have made him very proud, it certainly did his wife and children.
