Hi, I'm Francesca

Hi there I’m Francesca, I love people, celebrations and hazelnut lattes (extra hot please).

I’m a celebrant based in South Essex, and I create and perform beautiful, heartfelt and personalised ceremonies for couples and families all over Essex, London, Suffolk, Kent and beyond.

I find people’s stories fascinating and love nothing more than sitting down with clients over a cup of tea and hearing all about their lives and what we can make possible. Being a celebrant allows for genuine human connection; from that first spark with new clients to the happy tears in the eyes of a father as his daughter makes her vows; to the great aunt telling me her wedding story as we raise a glass to toast the couple afterwards. It’s all about people, it’s all about connection and that’s why I do what I do.

What's my ceremony style?

My style is friendly, personable and with a good sense of fun! I’m also a calm, confident speaker who is able to hold space during ceremonies to convey my clients’ stories and intentions. I’m drama school trained and my background in theatre production means I’m a canny on-the-spot problem solver as well, which sometimes comes in handy!

Prices From

£550 for weddings, £450 for Vow Renewals and Naming and Family Union ceremonies.

Why choose Francesca?

I was Regionally Highly Commended at this year’s The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA). If you choose me as your celebrant you’ll be choosing a wedding pal who’ll be there to scheme and dream with you, who’ll listen, suggest ideas, offer suggestions and guide you through the ceremony creation process. I’ll take time to understand how you want you and your guests to feel during your ceremony and offer up creative solutions.

What do I offer?

Weddings

I love working with couples who want their ceremonies to be a reflection of them, and are open to ideas and collaboration.

I am passionate about celebrating life’s milestones, whether they be weddings, civil partnerships, welcoming a baby or child into a family, graduations or other significant life events. Life has taught me that we are here for a good time, not a long time and so I believe in sharing and celebrating meaningful moments with those that you love. Being a celebrant allows me to share other’s joyous life moments which is both an honour and a privilege.

I’m a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and my background is in theatre making and performance and I use my creative skills to tailor a custom-made ceremony for each client. I’m extremely collaborative and love to hear people’s stories about how they met, their love story and their adventures.

If you decide to work with me we will work together to create your perfect ceremony, sending drafts and ideas back and forth before culminating in a full rehearsal before the big day. Then on the day itself you can focus on what really matters, celebrating your special day with the people you love.

I am based in Essex and also happy to travel to London, Kent, Suffolk and Hertfordshire. I can also travel further afield and internationally but do contact me so we can talk in more detail.

Francesca has been brilliant from start to finish, we knew as soon as we spoke on zoom that we would like to have Francesca as our celebrant on our special day because of her warm and kind nature and she was so easy for us to click with. Francesca came to meet us with a wealth of great ideas on how to make our day special and unique to us which led us to having a ring warming and hand fasting at our ceremony which we did not know much about before! On the day Francesca arrived and helped out my husband and his best man with the final touches and helped to create a relaxed and calming environment. We have really loved meeting Francesca and are so pleased we came across her to make our day so special. I cannot recommend Francesca highly enough.

Francesca was the celebrant for our outdoor wedding ceremony in July and she was fantastic to work with. She really took the time to get to know us in a natural and relaxed way which made us feel at ease with the whole process.

On the day Francesca was great, arrived early and conducted the ceremony perfectly. We had so many compliments from our guests about how personal it was and how they loved the readings that were included (suggested by Francesca).

Couldn’t recommend her enough :)

Francesca was the Celebrant for our wedding and we could not be more thankful for the wonderful job she did. From our very first conversation, we knew Francesca was the Celebrant for us. She is so kind and open-minded, and created an environment for the two of us to be completely honest and fully express our emotions. The whole process of working with Francesca has been a joy. Following our calls with her, we always felt uplifted! Francesca managed to draw out some really heartfelt, funny stories and encapsulate our relationship into a beautifully crafted ceremony which was both personal and special.
On the wedding day, Francesca’s delivery was perfect and her performing arts training really shone through. Her tone was spot-on and even the back row could hear every word of her beautiful ceremony script. Francesca was confident, which put us at ease, making the experience even more joyful and happy.
Francesca arrived early to greet our guests and stayed afterwards to chat to friends and family. So many of our guests commented on how well she seemed to know us both – even though we had met just 6 months prior to our wedding via a Zoom call! We are based in Singapore, so all of our communications with Francesca were done via webcam. The bond we managed to form with her without meeting her in person is quite remarkable, and we owe that to her – she is really special.
We cannot recommend Francesca enough. The ceremony was our favourite part of the day! It evoked exactly the emotions we wanted and created the most beautiful atmosphere. So many of our guests were blown away by it (and are still talking about it now), and it created a warm, authentic and love-filled tone for the rest of the day. Thank you Francesca! Tom and Ellie
