Hi, I'm Meg
Hi, my name is Meg! I am a family celebrant based in the North East.
I first discovered the world of family celebrancy in 2020 when my best friends asked if I would perform their wedding ceremony because of the limited guests allowed at their wedding. Of course, I said yes! What an honour it is, to be trusted with something so important to two people on one of the biggest days of their lives.
After meeting with them to discuss the ceremony and what they wished to include, I wrote their draft script, plus a personalised poem for one of their ceremony readings. During this time, I realised I loved the process of writing a ceremony and decided to do a bit more research into sector. I have now completed my course with UKSoc and my services include weddings, vow renewal and naming ceremonies.
What's my ceremony style?
I love trying different ideas, no matter how quirky! I will do my best to make your unique requests come to life. I am not afraid of a flash mob or a themed outfit either. Overall, I suppose my greatest strength is my poetry, I love writing personalised poetry that my clients can use during the ceremony. This is a special way to remind your guests of how you met and your journey so far as a couple.
I am ready to write your story.
Why choose Meg?
I am a people person- I enjoy talking to people from all different walks of life and love having a good natter! I am really looking forward to meeting all my future clients and getting to know you all on a personal level so that I can write ceremonies with your personalities and interests in mind, all you need to do is be yourselves and I’ll do the rest! As well as getting a celebrant, you will get a friend who you can turn to when you need event advice.
What do I offer?
The great thing about planning your event these days is that there is no pressure to stick to a ‘norm’ anymore, you can completely make your day your own. From the venue, the theme and the ambience of your day- the possibilities really are endless- so why not try to make your dream day come true? I like it when my couples think outside the box and take full advantage of having a celebrant lead ceremony.

Why choose Meg for your renewal of vows?
How long ago was it when you last said ‘I do’?
Was it ten years ago, when you were 32?
Or perhaps it was 5o years since that special day
but you remember it now, like it was yesterday.
So now you want to celebrate your love for a second time,
With your family and friends, with some beers and wine.
That’s why a vow renewal could be perfect for you,
To remember those vows you made, when you were 32.

If anyone is looking for a personalised ceremony , I cannot recommend Meg highly enough. The thought and preparation, that she put in to our daughters wedding, was amazing, down to every last little detail. She had written a lovely poem, that had us all laughing and crying , and the service itself was so professional, yet friendly. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony, we were all so impressed. Thank you Meg , you made a special day even more special ♡♡♡
One in a million!
Where to start!! I simply cannot recommend Meg enough – she went above and beyond not just on our wedding but day-in day-out on the entire build up, to create and design a unique, bespoke ceremony from scratch, that was so unbelievably personal to me and my husband. She listened to exactly what we wanted for our wedding, and designed a completely personalised ceremony, adding in her own creative suggestions to create the most heartfelt and beautiful ceremony. From involving the rose and winebox elements to incorporate our family into our ceremony, to creating a beautiful tear-jerking poem to read out – nothing was too much trouble! I lost count of the number of compliments she received on the day saying how incredible she was. Her shining personality and infectious laugh brought a smile and a tear to everyone in the room! We are SO grateful to have had you as our celebrant and would recommend Meg to absolutely anyone wanting a unique personalised beautiful ceremony on their wedding day.
