Hi, I'm Mandy

The ceremony – the centrepiece of a family gathering to honour a rite of passage. A new life, a union of love and of course, the loss of someone special.

All of these are incredibly personal and the way in which you acknowledge and celebrate them, unique to you. Having a unique ceremony written purely around you and your vision, is what we, as Celebrants, do best.

All you have to do, is chose someone from this amazing collection of Celebrants to share your dream with.

I am an experienced public speaker and adept at adjusting my delivery according to the occasion and the audience. I’m naturally warm, with high levels of empathy. I simply love meeting people and spreading a little bit of happiness as I go.

I don’t have a sombre, formal disposition. And I can’t speak any foreign languages. Apart from that, I’d say I’ll try anything once.

What's my ceremony style?

Ooooh. That’s a hard one. After all – it’s your ceremony, not mine.

I’m a naturally warm, friendly person who loves people. I smile a lot. And even with funerals, I always try to bring a least one element to the service that will raise a reflective smile.

I can cry with the best of them at a very intimate, powerfully romantic wedding. I love nothing more than writing a celebration of life eulogy, full of heart-warming stories of a life that meant the world to the family and friends that I’m sharing it with.

This is about what you want.

If you like my profile, chances are you’ll like my ceremonies. And the best way to find out if you like me, is to talk to me. If you make the tea, I’ll bring the biscuits.

Why choose Mandy?

Why choose me? Because I love to bring simple (or detailed) ideas to life. I’m the one that organises a charity dinner for 50 and every year, designs and creates Santa’s Grotto for the local school. I love to take a dream and make it a reality.

Whether it’s a dreamy summer wedding festival, or candlelit woodland handfasting. A fun and lively baby naming, with all of the family present, or a quiet favourite dog walk, to say a fond four-legged farewell. Anything is possible. Share your ideas with me. Let’s see them come to life together.

Weddings

Everyone loves a good wedding. Me especially. Why? Because I love to make every wedding amazing!

The beauty of doing a wedding your way, with a someone like me to write the ceremony, is that you can have your wedding however you want, wherever you want and whenever you want. Sure, you need to do the legal bit separately, but to every one who attends your special day, they’ll be participating in the coolest, most fabulous wedding they’ve ever seen.

You can decide where you want your wedding and how. The choice is yours to make. We’ll work out what you want to say and when you want to say it. Who will be involved and who won’t. We’ll plan the music, the entrance, the exit – it will be amazing. Just as you’ve always dreamt it to be.

The earlier we start planning the better. Just to get everything perfect.

Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

Whilst not everyone wants to have a formal Christening, it’s wonderful to gather family and friends to celebrate a new life. A chance to let everyone know the hopes and dreams you have for your baby and to promise to love them and guide them throughout their entire lives.

Naming ceremonies can be such fun. We can include family members – including the children – giving everyone a job to do and making sure everyone participates in some way, on such a special day.

All you have to do is decide on their name!

Funerals

Did you know that there isn’t anything you need to legally do, or say, at a funeral. The entire ceremony is in your hands, so that means you can be as creative as you like. Apart from the actual committal, the rest can be tailored to suit you. Totally.

Whilst we often cram into a small crematorium chapel or get lost in an enormous church, not many of us realise that we could have such a personal goodbye.

You could have a gathering at home or a favourite place. You can take as long as you like to reminisce, cry, laugh and share your goodbyes.

You can have as many or as few guests as you like, and everyone can relax and say goodbye at a pace that suits you all.

And afterwards, maybe even the next day, you can have a very small intimate committal for the last goodbye.

I am very pleased to write this review. From start to finish Mandy provided excellent support and advice. Her handling of the ceremony was first class, finding the right words and right tone to give my mother an excellent send off. I can strongly recommend Mandy.

From the first email I received in response to my enquiry, it is abundantly clear that Mandy loves what she does! She went out of her way to advise myself and my husband to be, even video calling us whilst she was away on holiday! I would not hesitate to recommend Mandy who was warm and friendly from the start. A wonderful celebrant.

I would really like to express huge, heartfelt thanks to Mandy for making such a devastatingly difficult occasion flow with such ease. My beautiful selfless Mum was my world and through all of this very delicate time, Mandy was incredibly supportive and guided me through everything I needed to know regarding the service. I was so distressed with a foggy head, yet she was patient, kind and gentle – exactly what I needed and I will always be grateful to her. She conducted the ceremony effortlessly and spoke with such warmth and compassion that I can’t tell you how comforting and reassuring this was to us all. In short, I think when God made Mandy, he was clearly showing off!!! I would thoroughly recommend her as a wonderful Celebrant. Thank you Mandy.
