Hi, I'm Lisa

I love, love.
I love wine (preferably red), the stories told by Charles Dickens and Wes Anderson, the music of Leonard Cohen and Biggie Smalls, and most of all I love, real honest people.

Those rare gems who aren’t afraid to do things their way. Who don’t follow trends, who love with all their soul. Those are my kind of people. Originality over ordinary, forever.

I pride myself on bringing integrity and creativity to your ceremony. Our imaginations need to roam I’ll spend time getting to know you so I can make the perfect suggestions from content and music to sharing ideas for symbolic rituals.

If you want a contemporary ceremony, that is an expression of your personality, emotions and ideas, let’s get started.

TOGETHER WE WILL CREATE AN ORIGINAL AND COOL CEREMONY, THAT SPEAKS OF YOUR LOVE.

What's my ceremony style?

Moments matter and never more so in ceremonies that celebrate magnificent milestones. I always say to my couples and families don’t settle for anything that makes you feel ordinary. Let’s define the key moments for you and amplify them with beautiful storytelling, quirky twist and unique rituals.

Together we’ll create something true to you. Beautiful and real. Planning a ceremony is an incredible experience and I’ll be with you every step of the way. I will be your source of knowledge to bounce ideas off. I’ll show you how to rip up the rule book, so you can have a ceremony that’s truly unique and reflects your vibe and values.

Weddings

I’ve always been inspired by the truth of love, how it uplifts and can heal us. My role is to help you celebrate your unique and individual love, in a way that feels right for you. Who wants to be the same as everyone else anyway?

One of my favourite things about being a celebrant is bringing meaning and personality to ceremonies. I love encouraging couples to think outside the box, explore their wildest dreams and wishes. Understanding what is special to you and how you want to feel is so important. It’s also a great place to start when you begin to think about planning a ceremony.

We’ll explore what you like and want to avoid. There are no restrictions on the type of ceremony you can have; it can include all the traditions, modern twists, religious content, humour you’d like. Or it could be something completely alternative.

My unlimited support includes an initial consultation, ceremony questionnaires and tips to help you write your own vows. I’ll help research the perfect readings, explore adding your own twists and I’ll coordinate the smooth running of the ceremony.

You’ll have a perfect original and one-of-a kind ceremony officiated by me. I’ll leave you with the best memories and a beautiful keepsake presentation copy of your ceremony.

We can mix modern with traditional, create new ideas, whilst balancing the right energy and flow. You might already know what you want to include in the ceremony or you might need some inspiration.

Why choose Lisa for your wedding?

Each ceremony is bespoke and unique to you, based on your vision and vibe. It’s a privilege to be part of the creation of your wedding day and to hear real, brave and bold love stories.
“When choosing a celebrant, I didn’t know where to start. I wanted someone who could make our friends laugh (and cry), could tell our story in a way that didn’t sound (too) cheesy and keep everyone captivated for 30 minutes. This is no mean feat so I thank my lucky stars that I found Lisa who delivered all the above”

Naming Ceremonies

When you’re born to be an individual why try to fit in?
Modern families come in all shapes and sizes. I work with families who have varying circumstances and diverse backgrounds to create bespoke ceremonies for babies and children that reinforce the bonds of family and friendship.

Naming ceremonies are an original way to have a relaxed and personal celebration for a new child joining the family. Perfect for cool kids and families looking for an alternative to a Christening with a more authentic way to welcome your new arrival.

Every ceremony I create is bespoke and unique to you. Understanding how you want to feel and what’s important to your family is a great place to start when we begin to talk about what to include in your ceremony.

I’ll give you unlimited support and inspiration, creating the perfect naming day ceremony that reflects your values.
The strength of this ceremony can be created with declarations and promises from parents, godparents grandparents and your VIPs.
Adding creative touches is one way to stand out from the crowd. You could include rituals, your family history, hopes and dreams, music and personal thank yous.

There are many symbolic acts you could choose for your ceremony. Here are just a few ideas; lighting of a candle, sand ceremony, message trees, handfasting, time capsules and tree planting.
I understand time is precious, especially when you’re a new parent. I’m here to make sure everything runs smoothly, and the day is a beautiful celebration of your family.
These ceremonies aren’t exclusively for babies, I can create unique ceremonies for; welcoming older children, blended families and celebrating the adoption of a child.

We couldn’t seem to find anyone who felt like the right person for the job, until we found Lisa.

Wedding | 06/06/2021 | Causey Inn

When we were looking for a celebrant for our wedding we wanted to find someone who could create a ceremony that had the depth and originality that we were looking for. We didn’t want a ‘normal’ ceremony and when looking around we couldn’t seem to find anyone who felt like the right person for the job, until we found Lisa.

We were drawn to Lisa’s cool, quirky and creative style. After meeting Lisa for the first time we knew she would be the best person to be our celebrant.

In terms of the service we received, we liked that we got to meet first before making our decision. We could tell she had a natural ability to capture our vibe early on, and we felt comfortable to be ourselves with her.
We never felt stressed whilst working with Lisa, and she was one of the very few suppliers which we had for our wedding who we felt was organised in her role.

There aren’t enough good things that we could say about the ceremony Lisa created for us. It was different which we loved, she added lots of unique elements – like describing what it is that we specifically love about each other, doing a handfasting, and having a Mexican wave of love performed by all of our guests. Our guests were lit up during the whole ceremony, it was truly unforgettable.

If anyone is out there looking for a celebrant who will create a ceremony for them that will make their wedding day as special as it can be, that is authentic to you as a couple, is an experience that your guests will never forget and will comment on for years to come – we would certainly recommend Lisa to be their celebrant.

We loved the ceremony that Lisa created for us so much that we would undoubtedly contact Lisa again for our baby’s naming ceremony in the future.

Thank you Lisa for all of your hard work and we look forward to working with you again soon.

Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. In the run up to the wedding we met Lisa to run through our ceremony and she was so lovely. All our excitement returned after having to postpone twice. Our ceremony felt so personal and perfect. All our guests commented on how amazing Lisa and the ceremony was too. We knew we were in good hands and I couldn’t thank Lisa enough.

Lisa is AMAZING!

Working with a celebrant was completely new to us and to be honest was something we didn’t initially consider. A close family friend suggested using a celebrant as a way of empowering and making our day truly ours. My oh my, did it exceed all expectations!

Lisa is an artist. She asked simple, honest questions throughout the process and really helped us understand what we wanted our wedding to look like. Lisa creatively told our ‘Love Story’ with such beauty and fun our guest were left in awe.

Lisa captures the whole room whilst also comforting us (two rather nervous newly weds) like an old friend you’ve known forever. Prior to walking down the aisle she spoke to bride and groom putting us at ease.

Lisa set the tone for our wild and wonderful wedding and we our forever grateful… Taking shots in a ceremony will be a memory for all our guests.

Honestly, the best decision we ever made. Thank you Lisa – You’re a complete legend.
