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.

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,
Being super-creative,
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 better way to celebrate one another and all you’ve created together?

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.

John & Michelle Martin

Wedding | 09/23/2022 | Widnes, CHESHIRE, UK

We are in Australia, wanting a Commitment Ceremony with my partners family in Widnes.
We were given Kirstie’s details from our niece.
We were in touch, and it just went from there. Kirstie provided us with all of the information that we needed, all in a very timely manner.
No questions were to difficult, and always answered quickly and thoroughly. Kirstie was very transparent, no hidden costs.
We arranged everything via email, and had one face time appointment with Kirstie. She was very easy to talk to, and made the whole experience comfortable and fun.
She got to know each of us, so that she was able to get the information needed for a very personalised ceremony.
We had a 20 minute sit down, face to face meeting 2 days prior to the ceremony (we just flew in from Australia) – she had everything organised & in order, she was just as friendly and as personable as she was in our face time meeting, all the weeks before.
We felt like we knew her from the email conversations & face time so that when we met her, we truly felt as though we knew her and when it was the ceremony day, it felt as though she was part of the family – she was a very special part of our ceremony and we cannot thank her enough.
We wanted to include something special within the ceremony, as a memorial for my partners Dad – Kirstie asked many questions about how we wanted it to be incorporated in the service and helped us come up with the perfect solution – a candle lighting that included his Mum, brother & sister and myself – it was truly perfect
Kirstie has a magic way of putting the room at ease, making guests laugh and feel connected to the ceremony and to her.
Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, how wonderful Kirstie was and how perfect the ceremony was for John & I. We couldn’t agree more!

Kirstie is “LOVE”, she radiates it.
Kirstie is: caring, fun, genuine, sincere, natural, funny and invested in her couples/clients. She is committed to making your day as perfect and as easy as she can.
It’s easy to see – that she just LOVES what she does and she is AWESOME at it.

We cannot recommend Kirstie highly enough… she is a celebrant and more… we are so very grateful that we had Kirstie as our Celebrant, and we know that you will not be disappointed in her…

Wedding | 05/14/2022 | Liverpool

Everything about Kirstie and the way she’s goes about things, is just great.

We found Kirstie after spending a little bit of time wondering around instagram, feeling like we needed something different for our wedding ceremony, but not quite knowing what it was. (At this point, we had no idea how to even plan a wedding so working out what we wanted, in what location and in what way, took some real head scratching!)

From the moment we first met, we knew Kirstie had to be part of our day, over time she guided us to refine the day/weekend and really work out what we wanted to do. We met up a couple of times, each time Kirstie was there for us when we needed to let off some wedding steam and also be the logical, but fun ear we needed.

We’re honestly so grateful that the universe sent Kirstie our way, she was literally the perfect celebrant for us and our wedding really wouldn’t have been the same without her.
We wanted chilled but considered, and that’s exactly what we got.
Kirstie did a great job of understanding us as people and this was evident throughout the ceremony, lots of people commented on this afterwards. The ceremony was written so beautifully: subtle, funny and seamless. 

Kirstie suggested so many options during the planning, every detail was considered and passed by us, and we really felt like we had such autonomy throughout the whole process and the day.

We 1000% trusted Kirstie in how she would deliver the ceremony and it was never a worry, she is truly empathetic and genuine, professional and super stylish. 

Thank you so much for being part of our wedding and we wish you all the luck with your future work
