Hi, I'm Maria

I am an Independent Celebrant, trained withe the Institute of Professional Celebrants, and am based in County Durham, North East England. I am happy to work with clients throughout the North East and North Yorkshire.. Love and family are at the core of my business. I believe love should be celebrated and I delight in working with clients to provide their own unique and very personal ceremony, be that weddings, renewal of vows, baby naming, memorial services or funerals.

What's my ceremony style?

Ceremonies are all built around love. My style is that of caring and loving. I will work with you, for as long as it takes, to create a ceremony that is perfect for you. I actively encourage the inclusion of mini rituals, such as handfasting, sand ceremony or unity candle, to name but a few. I believe that these rituals help to make your ceremony unique. They can be included in various types of ceremonies including weddings, renewal of vows, commitment ceremonies and naming ceremonies. I will also provide a ‘dry run’ of your ceremony, wherever possible, to calm nerves and give clients a clearer picture of the main event. At the initial consultation, I will set up a WattsApp group between myself and the clients, to ease communication between us all.

Weddings

Your wedding ceremony should tell your love story. Starting with our initial consultation, I will work with couples to get to know you and to learn your love story. I will incorporate your story into your wedding ceremony. Every couple is unique. Your ceremony will be unique. In cases of mixed religions, or mixed culture, we can include elements or rituals to acknowledge your backgrounds. Your ceremony can take place anywhere, at any time of day or night, whatever you would like (subject to availability and agreement). Work with me and we will create a unique ceremony, written especially for you.

I am happy to work with couples who want their wedding ceremony to be held in either North Yorkshire or the Northeast of England. If you prefer somewhere warmer, I am happy to work in Spain’s glorious Costa del Sol too. I love to include mini rituals, if this is something you would like to consider. Rituals include handfasting, sand ceremonies, unity candles. Each of theses rituals can be personalised to reflect your background, culture etc. Keep an open mind and together we can create a wedding ceremony that everyone will remember for a very long time.

Naming Ceremonies

I am an Independent Celebrant, trained withe the Institute of Professional Celebrants, and am based in County Durham, North East England. I am happy to work with clients throughout the North East and North Yorkshire. I can I can also offer to officiate at ceremonies in Spain’s glorious Costa del Sol. Love and family are at the core of my business. I am a perfectionist and very organised. I am a people person and an excellent communicator. Each ceremony I create is unique because my clients are unique.

Naming Ceremonies are the perfect was to welcome a new child into your family. Traditionally the ceremony is to welcome new born babies, but it is also ideal to formally welcome adopted children or children of blended families. Whilst a traditional church christening or baptism, formally welcomes the child into the church, naming ceremonies welcome the child into the family and the community. A naming ceremony can be held anywhere, even in your own home or back garden. It can be as formal or informal as you wish. One thing is guaranteed, it will be a very personal ceremony, to be remembered by all for a long time to come.

Goodbye Dad

Funeral | 02/09/2022 | Salwell Crematorium

I recently had to say goodbye to my lovely dad who I had loved for 63 years When I was looking for a celebrant I was introduced to Maria, and I knew right away this lady would give my dad a beautiful eulogy.
When you are saying a final goodby to your loved ones you need to call Maria. Thank you ❤ x
