Hi, I'm Meg

Hey there! I’m the smiley, bubbly celebrant who offers bespoke wedding and family celebrations all over Yorkshire and the North East! But let me tell you, I’m always up for a good adventure, so I’m happy to travel far and wide to make your special day unforgettable!

My business was born when my friends asked me for a “pandemic favour,” and since then, I’ve been putting my heart and soul into creating personalised ceremonies that reflect my couple’s unique personalities and love stories.

My secret ingredient? Listening! I’m all ears for your wildest ideas, your deepest worries, and your ultimate vision for your wedding day. And if you need advice or inspiration, I’ve got you covered too!

But wait, there’s more! I also help with vow-writing and I’m a personalised poetry pro!
Let’s have a chat and start planning your unforgettable ceremony!

What's my ceremony style?

Crafting a Memorable Ceremony Tailored to You
I specialise in creating relaxed ceremonies that are both fun and beautiful, while also recounting your unique love story. I love to incorporate a perfect balance of love and laughter, including details of how you met, your dreams for the future, and even a few subtle humorous moments.

But don’t be fooled – I’m not afraid to bring some extra pizzazz to the table.

Whether it’s a surprise flash mob or a themed outfit, I’m always open to fun ideas that showcase your personalities. One of my greatest strengths is my poetry, and I offer my couples personalised poems to be read during the ceremony. It’s a special way to celebrate your journey as a couple and leave a lasting impression on your guests.

My approach is both laid-back and organised, which I believe creates the perfect balance. My friends often refer to me as the “smiling assassin” for my infectious laugh and upbeat personality.

Celebrating the Arrival of Your Little One with a Naming Ceremony

Your bundle of joy has finally arrived, and it’s even more magical than you imagined. As a new member of your family, you’ll be beaming with pride after waiting nine months for this precious moment. Why not mark this special occasion with a naming ceremony?

Naming ceremonies are a beautiful way to introduce your child to their family and community. During the ceremony, you can even select “life guides” to make promises to your child. It’s a fantastic opportunity to involve as many people as you feel comfortable with. In the past, older siblings have taken part in the ceremony by creating handprints or participating in sand ceremonies. You can even include readings – the possibilities are endless!

These ceremonies create precious memories for you and your family. Let’s get started! Contact Meg today for more information!

Starting at £350 Celebrate your little one’s special day with a bespoke naming ceremony tailored to your family’s unique story. Here’s what’s included in your package:
A Zoom meeting with me to get to know each other and discuss your plans for the day.
A fun-filled ‘Family Quiz’ to learn more about your family’s heritage and history.
I’ll craft, revise and perfect your personalised naming ceremony, with your input every step of the way.
The price includes vow cards, reading cards and any other necessary elements.
You’ll get help and advice for parent vows, symbolic elements and reading choices.
I’ll be there to officiate the ceremony, arriving no later than an hour before the start time.
You’ll receive a copy of your ceremony script as a keepsake.
Unlimited contact via mobile, email or video call.
Special elements such as sand ceremonies or ribbon ceremonies can be discussed and explained during our initial meeting.

I don’t know where to start!

Wedding | 10/12/2023 | Runa Farm, Barnard Castle

I don’t know where to start! We were originally going to go the traditional route of getting the registrar out for our ceremony but the logistics just didn’t fit the timings of our venue – and it turned out to be the best little speed bump we came across when wedding planning because it meant we found Meg! Meg was so friendly and bubbly from the get go when we struck up a conversation at a wedding fair and in those short minutes we knew she would be able to do exactly what we wanted… But we were wrong! She did just that and more! Planning was a breeze because it really did just feel like meeting a friend and chatting wedding plans and when we got our ceremony draft back it was impossible to not get emotional – she captured our story perfectly. On the day, at the bottom of that aisle, it was almost like you could feel her excitement for us as a couple radiating off her. We’ve had so many compliments about how lovely the ceremony was (not to mention a social media post go viral because of special elements she helped us weave into the day seamlessly!) that I honestly couldn’t imagine how any alternative could have beat it!

Thank you, Meg, for making the start of this new chapter as Husband and Wife so special and one of kind.

Wedding | 10/16/2021 | The Lake District

I got to witness Meg in action at a family friends wedding in the Lakes and she brought the lucky couples story to life, capturing their personalities perfectly. Absolutely loved the addition personalised poem (written by herself!) which told their story in a unique and joyful way, getting plenty of laughs along the way! The ceremony had all of the emotions. One moment we were howling with laughter and the next we shed a tear, it was the most unique ceremony i’d ever been to! The bride and groom themselves love a drink, so the wine box ceremony was a great choice for them and it was great to see so many members of the family involved. If I ever get married, I’d hire Meg for sure!

Megan was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Megan is both professional and knowledgeable but is also really fun and easy to communicate with. Nothing is too much trouble and Megan went above and beyond to write and perform the most wonderful ceremony that was perfect for us. Everything was completely personalised for us which was really important as we didn’t want our guest to sit through the same (sometimes boring) wedding ceremony they have probably sat through themselves 10x or had on their wedding day. Knowing that every reading/poem that was written and read on the day will only ever be shared at your wedding makes you treasure them more. Knowing that the vows you say are chosen by yourselves makes them even more meaningful. Knowing that no one will ever have had or will attend a ceremony like ours is really something special. We had endless comments from guests on the day and still have comments now about how great it was, how engaging Meg was, how nice it was to have so many ways to involve family and friends… the list goes on. We could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony and it is all down to Megan’s hard work and dedication. We highly recommend Megan and all her services!
