Hi, I'm Hilary

I always say that I am lucky and fortunate to have been living the dream since 2014 when I qualified as as a Wedding & Family Celebrant and discovered it was both my passion and vocation. I love helping people to create amazing ceremonies that reflect exactly the vibe and atmosphere that they want. Whether that’s elegant and sophisticated or rustic and quirky, or a combination of all these, I conduct weddings, vow renewals and naming ceremonies that I hope people remember for years to come. I believe the words of the lovely couple Kim and Adam whose wedding ceremony I conducted by Sopley Lake in the New Forest, reflect what I strive to achieve with every ceremony I write and deliver.

“We want to thank you for delivering such a beautiful and relaxed ceremony. We love the fact that there was lots of laughter and happiness. So many of our guests commented on the fact that our ceremony was so relaxed and intimate and that you created the perfect atmosphere. We would also like to thank you for your commitment in coming to meet with us on two occasions and the time you took to come to the wedding venue for a run-through. The practice run really made us feel at ease the next day. Your professionalism, and kind and warm personality make you the perfect celebrant and we will definitely recommend you to all of our friends.”

What's my ceremony style?

I conduct wedding ceremonies in barns, gardens, hotels, wed fests, golf clubs, country clubs, lakes, tree-houses, in woodland, beside lakes and fisheries, castles, estates and garden marquees. Every ceremony is different and this year I did my first festival themed wedding in a large field right beside the prosecco van! It was Saturday 8th July 2017 and if you were in the south, you will know it was probably the hottest day of the year.

For all outside weddings I use a mic and amp that anyone in the ceremony can use so that all your guests can hear everything and my favourite symbolic rituals are sand ceremonies, hand fastings and tying the true lovers knot ceremonies. As so many of my ceremonies are woodlands based I also have a fabulous wrought iron cream shabby chic archway that I hire out for weddings.

I also offer naming ceremonies and vow renewal ceremonies.

Hilary planned and conducted our wedding ceremony and we couldn’t have asked for more. A beautiful ceremony conducted by a beautiful celebrant.We had no idea where to start but very soon into our initial meeting with Hilary we knew we were in good hands.Everyone commented on how personal the ceremony was and surprised how little we had to contribute to the planning of it!Hilary is a true professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hilary.Thank you Hilary!Kim and Alan

We really highly recommend Hilary, she is just wonderful! Our ceremony was beautifully thought out, carried out and so personal, we just loved it! We had so many compliments and comments from all our guests too, with everyone saying how personal it was and so ‘us’. Hilary was such a calm and reassuring presence through out, not just on the day but in our pre-meeting and during the rehearsal and in all communications. We felt in very safe hands. Thank you so much for making our day so very special, we will never forget it. Katie and Chris xx
