Hi, I'm Meg

I’m the smiley, chatty and relaxed celebrant (my couples’ words not mine!)
I am from Barnard Castle originally but currently live in Darlington with my husband Tom. I am a northern lass, but I also enjoy travelling around and meeting new people!
I first discovered the wonderful world of celebrants in 2020 when my best friends asked if I would officiate their ceremony because of the limited guests allowed at their wedding.
Of course, I said “hell yes!”
What an honour it is to be trusted with something so important on one of the biggest days of their lives. ​
I am now lucky enough to write and officiate unique and authentic weddings, vow renewals and naming ceremonies for other couples and I’m LOVING it!
Everyone is different, every love story unique, so why should your ceremony be the same as everyone else’s?
It’s all about you!

Meg’s Favourite things: musical theatre, bottomless brunch and my family.

What's my ceremony style?

I enjoy a relaxed ceremony which simply, yet beautifully, tells your story. The perfect amount of love and laughter throughout with details of how you met and dreams for the future as well as subtle humorous tails. However, I am not afraid of a flash mob or a themed outfit either. Overall, my greatest strength is my poetry, which my clients can use during the ceremony. This is a special way to remind your guests of your journey so far as a couple. Ceremony scripts are an absolute joy to write, I’ve always enjoyed writing, ever since school and my time at university. I love playing around with words and looking at their meanings. For example: the name ‘Meg’ comes from the Greek origins meaning “pearl” so here are my pearls of wisdom…. choose personality over legality, a celebrant ceremony is a real representation of your love.
I’m 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 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 any event advice.

I am passionate about making my ceremonies as personal as possible, even down to the finer details. I have invested in a few craft machines and printers to help make any extra ceremony props we require (e.g. vow cards, parchment & special elements) and also offer my couples a wedding stationery service via other business.

What do I offer?

Weddings

I like it when my couples think outside the box and take full advantage of having a celebrant-led ceremony. It helps when my couples are fully involved in the process with me. From initial ideas when we first meet to designing personalised elements using my many craft machines, I want your input as much as possible. Your opinions are the only ones that matter to me!

If you like chatting over coffee & cake OR a G&T – I’m your celebrant! I love nothing more than a couple who let me into their world and are open to suggestions so I can write something truly unique. My dream ceremony would include a flashmob entrance.. so if you’re planning one let me know – I’m not saying I’m a professional dancer but I’ll give anything a go!

I am a creative celebrant! From poetry writing to handcrafted ceremony elements, my aim is to design a ceremony to match your personalities & wishes. I absolutely love making people laugh, remember it’s a celebration!

I also own a stationery business so can work with you to design the little touches e.g. vow cards, parchment.

The main question from me will be: What do YOU want?

Now the questions been popped
And the answer was yes.
It’s time to pick a date,
The venue and the rest.

There’s so much more to-do
And the time will go so fast,
So I am offering up my services
To write about the perfect match.

Everyone loves a love story,
So why not tell me yours,
So I can write a ceremony
I hope you will adore.

You’ve stumbled on my profile,
So why not take a look
And if you wish to contact me.

Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremonies

Your little bundle of joy,
has finally arrived.
It’s even more magical
Than people had described.

A new member of the family,
you’ll be beaming with pride.
Been waiting for nine months,
the bond has now been tied.

The birth of a child is such a special occasion,
why not organise a naming celebration!?

Naming ceremonies are so lovely, they can be used to introduce your child to the rest of their family and community. You can even select ‘life mentors’ to make promises to your child during the ceremony. It’s fantastic to get as many people involved in the ceremony as you feel comfortable. People in the past have often encouraged older siblings to take part in the ceremony e.g. hand prints, sand ceremonies. Readings can be included also- the sky’s the limit!

These ceremonies can create precious memories for you and your family- let’s get started! Get in contact for more information!

Prices start from £300 and includes:
-Get to know you
-Initial interview
-First draft of your ceremony
-Second interview! Used to look at the first draft of your script and to begin modifying.
-Completion of a final draft
-Final meet up and ceremony rehearsal (with music, readings, promises etc…)
-A copy of your ceremony script will be created as a keepsake
-Meg will be there on the day to officiate the ceremony
-Unlimited contact! Catch me on my mobile/email/video call.
-Venue visit/liaison if needed.

Special Elements e.g. sand ceremonies, ribbon ceremonies can be discussed & explained at the initial meeting.

Why choose Meg for your naming ceremony?

The joy of a having a new addition to the family is so incredible, I love being part of such a significant day in a families history.

I like being creative and making my scripts engaging, for all ages to enjoy. As a naming celebrant, I will meet your family, get to know you and write a script to fit your desires for the day. A naming or welcoming ceremony can be done at any location you choose. Special elements, readings and music can be discussed. I am happy to dress to fit your theme (especially Disney hint hint).

Renewal of Vows

Vow renewal ceremonies can be as creative as you like, the world is your oyster! I love it when my couples want to use their ceremony to celebrate and have fun together with their guests! Of course, it has to be serious in parts, but remember, it’s also a celebration of your marriage and the times you have gotten through together as a team, whether good or bad. I love ceremonies set in a place that means a lot to that couple and learning about their journey together up to this point.

I’m always a fan of special elements..
So if you want to include a sand ceremony or a wine box ceremony etc- I’m always excited!

Personalised Ceremony Service from £450
This includes:
-An initial ‘get to know you’ meeting with questionnaire.
-A first draft of your ceremony will be completed.
-A second meeting to review the first draft of your script.

Why choose Meg for your renewal of vows?

I’m forever smiling & laughing!
I’ll do my best to make you feel at ease on your special day and endeavour to create something you and your guests will remember forever. I’m a perfectionist and make sure everything from the script, poems and ceremony props are personalised in a way you are happy with. It’s YOUR ceremony- I’m there to make it happen & to make sure it runs smoothly.

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.
All 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.

Wedding | 10/16/2021 | Cragwood Country House Hotel, Windermere

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 ♡♡♡

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.
