Hi, I'm Marcia
Hi I´m Marcia, a black passionate, creative, eclectic wedding celebrant fondly known as “M” or “MB. I´m originally from Leeds, UK, but now I´m based in Málaga, Southern Spain. I write and officiate bespoke wedding ceremonies for busy couples in the UK and Spain. I particularly love an outdoor wedding in the Spanish sunshine, bilingual ceremonies in English and Spanish, Spanish elopements, LGBTQ+, multicultural, multiracial and micro weddings. My skill is in the unique way I weave and narrate my couples love story into a vibrant ceremony that can includes a symbolic ritual like a hand-tying. Are you a busy couple who dreams of an outdoor wedding in the Spanish sun in a beautiful finca, villa or cortijo in English or a blend of English and Spanish. Yes? Are you someone seeking an alternative and vibrant wedding, who appreciates life, vibrancy, passion, creativity and eclectic style? Yes? It´s great to meet you. M xxx
What's my ceremony style?
I´m vibrant and eclectic; maybe a bit like you!! It´s in the bright clothes I wear; maybe that you wear…My crazy hair!! My Afro Caribbean heritage. Your passion for life, My passion for bringing your story alive. Want colour? then that´s exactly what you´ll get…we´ll share this together on your special day… If you want an alternative wedding ceremony full of life; that weaves your amazing love story into symbolic rituals like a Hand-fasting, Jumping the broom or other cultural rituals and more that´s me… I use the experience from my vault of listening to people’s stories of love and life over the decades, and that´s a lot… alongside my creativity and imagination for interpreting stories. Added into the mix; positive energy and inspiration I feel when I´m connected to nature to write your bespoke wedding ceremony. If my style resonates with you and your dream is a wedding with colourful metaphors, then I´m the celebrant for you. M xxx

Why choose Marcia?
If someone had told me in the future, I would learn to speak Spanish, I would probably have thought maybe!! Why not!! I´ve always considered Spanish a romantic language and loved the vibrant culture…But if they´d said Marcia you´re going to become a celebrant and write and officiate bespoke destination wedding ceremonies in the UK and Spain; I don´t think, I would have believed them but it´s really been one of the best things I´ve ever done… Don´t get me wrong I loved working within UK charities where I worked for 20+ years supporting and motivating vulnerable individuals; but I knew I longed for something more; to use my creativity every day.
Like you, my dream began on paper followed by my revelation that I could use my vault of experience helping couples to have a celebrant led ceremony. With my creativity and passion for working with people; I took the plunge and trained to become a celebrant.
What do I offer?
My ideal clients love to travel when they have the time and like the mix of the UK and Spain but are not into glamping or anything like that. You enjoy something a bit different like a boutique hotel off the main high street with a cosy wood-burning stove with an interior that´s vibrant like your personalities because you love bright colours.
What really appeals to you is the intimacy, “just the two of you”. You love each other´s company and so an elopement or micro wedding appeals to you. You like to explore new things, interesting venues, restaurants; trying out new food trends and experiences like an alternative ceremony symbolic ritual like a hand-fasting. You especially enjoy having fun together and with friends.
My couples feel an empathy towards me because of my past career working in charities for 20+ years and my similar values and traits that resonate with yours I.e., caring, person centred, trustworthy, vibrant, naturally warm.

Renewal of Vows
I love couples with vibrant personalities who love life and enjoy celebrating life. Couples who are passionate about re-committing to each other whether that be after the first year, every year or at moments that are important to them.
Couples who love to dream and make dreams together. I particularly love couples who have vibrant and busy lives and want to get away from their usual routine to have their vow renewals in the sun in Málaga.
Couples who want to include aspects that have particular meaning to them as part of their vow renewal ceremony be that a symbolic ritual such as a ring warming, hand-fasting or something else…
Couples who are still seeking something a little bit different.

I weave these into a ceremony that is passionate and speaks of your story of love, commitments to each other and your future aspirations; to create an intuitive, reflective and truly meaningful ceremony.

Why choose Marcia for your renewal of vows?
I am passionate about helping couples to achieve their dreams and aspirations. In fact I have always been passionate about helping people and worked in the charity sector for over 20+ years.

She was the perfect officiant for our vow renewal
Our experience with Marcia was a dream. From our first call, to hugging her to say good bye after our ceremony, she was fun, funny, thoughtful, and careful. She created an experience full of love and laughter that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
She is a warm-hearted, generous, poet who deeply sees the humanity in the people she works with. She was the perfect officiant for our vow renewal. And she’s one of those rare people that I hope we stay in touch with because she’s that awesome.
Vow renewal was just something we will remember forever
We had the best time last week 28/08/2022. Thank you for everything. Vow renewal was just something we will remember forever.
A true professional of active listening and emotional intelligence
Marcia will seduce you the moment you meet her. Her warmth, empathy and dedication are her hallmarks. Her previous work experience in the social area makes her a true professional of active listening and emotional intelligence, essential qualities to be able to faithfully perceive the tastes and needs of her clients and turn them into reality. This, together with her careful, brilliant and permanent training as a celebrant, ensures a creative result (because each celebration is different from the others) and personalized (because in essence it is the story and desires of each client that matter). In short, with these ingredients, she manages to turn a celebration into an unforgettable personal experience…
