Hi, I'm Francesca
My name is Francesca Foulsham and I am an independent, LGBTQ+ friendly Wedding Celebrant based in Norfolk ,Suffolk and the whole of East Anglia. I pride myself on my highly bespoke, beautiful ceremonies which focus on the finer details of your day.
I have taken all the transferable skills from my professional background in education and turned them into a vocation I truly love, working with people to transform their ideas and plans into personal, distinctive ceremonies which reflect their personalities.
What's my ceremony style?
No two ceremonies are the same!
Some couples love music, poems and symbolic gestures and others prefer simple and traditional; and some of my couples add plenty of delicious and delightful little extras along the way!
That is why I love being a Celebrant, because I have the freedom to create a ceremony that is personal and tailored just for you, in the dream venue of your choice.
Why choose Francesca?
The glorious open skies and sunshine of East Anglia lend themselves to the most gorgeous wedding locations. Old chapels, majestic halls, beautiful barns and boutique hotels all bursting with the grace and charm which will frame your ceremony.
Happy in high heels or wellies, I also enjoy unusual and alternative locations; tepees, tents, woods, windmills, at a farm, in a field or at a festival!
Wherever and however you would like to celebrate one of the most important and precious milestones together, I would be delighted to chat with you and turn those dreams into a reality!
What do I offer?
My favourite couple? Those in love! I am a huge advocate of all inclusive weddings, especially LGBTQ+. When asked, my friends tell me that I, “Appeal to everyone!”
Happy to be in wellies or high heels, I believe Norfolk has endless possibilities for locations. A Tepee or a tent, in a wood or a windmill, at a farm, in a field or at a festival, I love unusual, alternative or outdoor locations but equally happy in a beautiful chapel, hall or barn.
Magical & Memorable!

An Absolute Star!
Francesca, the day wouldn’t have been the same without you. You made it all so seamless and relaxed. Thank you so much for everything, not just for leading the ceremony but also for all your support and advice. You’re an absolute star! It’s not every wedding where you meet the Ghostbusters!
We just wanted to say thank you for the sensitive and caring way in which you helped us to prepare for the lovely service that you gave for our mum. It means the world to us.
