Hi, I'm Kirstie
Feel like spreading some love?
I’m Kirstie, I’m an award-winning, warm and encouraging Cheshire-based celebrant, and I’m in love with love.
Being a Celebrant is my actual heart’s joy.
There’s something in the ether that brings those I’m meant to work with to me.
You’ll know if I’m yours. And if I am ……. yay!
I have such a passion for celebrating our lives, loves and milestones. About sharing stories of love and life with others.
About shouting out about love.
What's my ceremony style?
I am sure that (just like partners) there’s a perfect Celebrant fit for everyone. You’ll know if I’m yours.
My ‘style’ is ……..
Kind, Encouraging and Calming.
I’m super-enthusiastic about my work & give it all my heart.
Focused on you & your story.
How about you?
After all you’re what it’s all about …….
Celebrant of the Year 2022
Absolutely thrilled to have been awarded AGFD’s Celebrant of the Year Award for 2022 – so amazing to have been nominated by families I’ve worked with and other professionals. What a thing!
Why choose Kirstie?
Those I’ve worked with say ……. “the best & easiest bit of planning has been meeting you, you reminded me what it’s all about for us”
“Made us feel like we’d known her for years”
“Our guests said it was the loveliest ceremony they’d ever been to……. much more personal than they’d ever known a wedding to be”
I am especially ace at:
Listening to what you need & want & really hearing you,
Thinking of every little titchy detail & making sure they’re all covered,
Writing & telling stories,
Making people feel at ease,
Being the perfect balance of friendly & professional
Also (the dull but necessary bits): I’m qualified to the highest UK Standard, got a Distinction in my Creative Writing Masters Degree, am fully insured, DBS checked, a member of Association of Independent Celebrants and a general all round good and reliable egg.
What do I offer?
Is there anything better than finding love and wanting to tell the whole wide world?
I just love a wedding and I’ll make sure that you just love yours too. And that your guests will.
Whether you fancy something super romantic, totally quirky, traditional looking, in your own garden or your local barn – your ceremony will be bursting with warmth, humour and joy.
I only offer one package – there’s no silver/gold/platinum with me ……. I only ever deliver the absolute best to all my couples.
Why choose Kirstie for your wedding?
Because ……. Love
But also, I think my couples say it best …….
“Kirstie is LOVE. She radiates it.”
“Kirstie has a magic way of putting the room at ease, making guests laugh and feel connected to the ceremony & to her.”
“Kirstie was there for us when we needed to let off some wedding steam……. the logical but fun ear that we needed.”
“Kirstie was so friendly & helpful & made us feel like we’d known her for years.”
“The best celebrant you could ask for.”
If you feel I might be yours, then I’d love you to get in touch.

Why choose Kirstie for your naming ceremony?
As a person who was raised in a diverse adoptive family I specialise in Welcoming Ceremonies which mark the creation of a new family when adoption has taken place.
Adoption is such a special gift and the children who grow in a family’s heart deserve a really unique ceremony. These ceremonies are written with great love and with, above all, a sensitivity and a gentleness which honours the journey your child has been on and looks ahead to your shared life and love together.

Renewal of Vows
What better way to celebrate one another and all you’ve created together?
Vow renewals can mark a significant anniversary or birthday. They can reaffirm your vows after a time of ill health or turbulence. They can simply be a way of showing that, after 1 year or 60 years, you both still definitely do.
I will listen to the story of your love and craft a ceremony which is as unique as the life journey you’ve shared together.
Delivered with passion, warmth and joy. Your vow renewal will be an occasion to cherish, as you continue to cherish one another.
Why choose Kirstie for your renewal of vows?
Choosing me for your Vow Renewal means that you get the best of both worlds …. I’m supportive, warm and encouraging – easy to talk to and understanding AND I’m also a highly accomplished writer who crafts your words and story into a compelling, entertaining, engaging, thought-provoking ceremony which you and your guests will remember and treasure.

Couldn’t recommend Kirstie enough
I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional service conducted by Kirstie for my mum’s recent funeral. She created an atmosphere that was welcoming and reassuring. What stood out most was the inclusion of moments of laughter during the service. It was incredibly comforting to hear people share in the stories and find moments of joy. I couldn’t recommend Kirstie enough for her compassionate approach to such a delicate situation.
Thank you Kirstie
Kirstie is a truly passionate celebrant. Kirstie completed the ceremony for my nan’s funeral and she has a real talent for writing which comes across in her ceremonies. She is able to truly understand the essence of people and then convey this in such a beautiful way. I also just love the aesthetic details that Kirstie does, such as the keepsake which is just beautiful. I would HIGHLY recommend Kirstie, she has such a warmth to her but she is so professional and diligent. Truly the best of both worlds. She did such a fantastic job for us and we couldn’t be more grateful for everything Kirstie did to support us.
The best in the business!
On the death of our baby girl at birth. It was the hardest time of our lives. The last thing we expected to be doing is organising a funeral. We wanted everything to be perfect and Kirstie ensured just that, she ensured our anxieties and worries we’re at bay.
She carried out the funeral and the gorgeous words she wrote were spot on, it wasn’t a morbid ceremony but light and full of love. She made the worst day of our life bearable and we could honestly not of asked for a better celebrant. She was amazing. If your looking for a celebrant for your child or loved one look no further, you won’t be disappointed ❤️
