Hi, I'm Michelle

I am your one and ONLY #FunkyCelebrant®
A self- confessed geek! I love the Wizarding Word, The Marvel Universe…and basically anything a little weird and fantastic!

Could I be your perfect celebrant?
I hope you’re having a great day, that your plans are starting to come together, and that you’re looking for something a little bit different, delivered by a celebrant who thinks and works outside of that boring proverbial ‘box’ because I’ve been creating awesome ceremonies for amazing people since 2011 and have won multiple awards along the way. I’m your gal ‘cos I really do know my stuff!

I work with my couples and families to design something pretty special…totally inclusive and diverse.
If you want something that represents everything you are and everything you wish to show to the world with NO restrictions contact me now!
Anything really does go… and my passion shines through….Let’s celebrate your LOVE!

What's my ceremony style?

I like FUN!! You will always see me with the biggest cheesiest grin on my face as I conduct my ceremonies, simply because I am having fun…

Life is for living, loving and celebrating in all of its multifaceted and multicoloured glory.

I have a very strong leaning towards earthy, outdoors ceremonies and love to dress up to fit in with a theme (so far from Pagan to Steam Punk, with a little bit…ok, quite a lot… of Harry Potter thrown in! )

Not got a theme? That’s fine! I’ll be at the front, rocking one of my 50’s retro dresses, with a bright petticoat, funky DM’s letting the love shine through.

There aren’t many symbolic rituals that I haven’t performed; but set me the challenge let’s create something new!

It’s your ceremony, your way. If you can dream it, let’s see if together we can make it a reality.

You might be an adult changing your name and wishing to announce to the world the new you…I can’t think of a better way of you saying…’Hi, this is me, I’m here and I’m proud to embrace the person I have become’…can you?

Renewal of Vows

Say “We Still Do…” as you renew your vows in style & celebrate that milestone.
Be it an anniversary or just an excuse to have the wedding celebration you didn’t have the first- time round; renewing your vows is a wonderful way to rededicate yourselves to each other.
No one knows precisely when wedding anniversaries were first celebrated but the tradition is believed to go back at least to the Middle Ages.
At that time in the Germanic regions of Europe, a husband crowned his wife with a silver wreath on the 25th anniversary of their wedding day.
Luckily, for us modern couples at least, as the centuries rolled on, more and more anniversary milestones were added, and a fantastic excuse born for us to be showered with gifts on a yearly basis from our attentive partners and an even better excuse for a good party!
Let’s get that party started!

So, what do you get for your money?
Unlimited contact with me with as many meetings as you feel you need. ( face to face or Zoom).
Unlimited script edits ( up to 14 days before your ceremony).
I will arrive at your venue at least 1 hour before your ceremony and won’t rush off afterwards. ( I do offer other services that can be added on, please visit my website for details).

Wedding | 11/09/2020 | Bocking, Essex

We found Michelle on Google,
although Michelle’s website mentions her amazing awards and achievements, our main reason for wanting to meet her was the little video.
We immediately warmed to, and liked this lovely bubbly, friendly person coming out of the screen, feeling she would be just right for us.

We had absolutely no hesitations about having Michelle be our celebrant, as soon as we met her, we just knew she would do an amazing job, filling us with complete confidence, the ceremony was certainly something we didn’t need to worry about.

There was never a doubt in either of our minds about having Michelle be with us for our special day, it wasn’t even something we needed to discuss, we both knew. Michelle shared our complete excitement for the day! She spent so much time finding out about us, both as a couple and separately, to enable her to give us such a personal experience.

There is so much to love about Michelle, she was bubbling over with enthusiasm just as much as us!!
And fun and friendly, sensitive, hard working.
We loved how fun and relaxed Michelle was, and how she put us completely at ease, this was going to be great!

We would highly recommend Michelle, to anyone looking for a celebrant, for any occasion, in fact we can’t recommend highly enough!!
A deeply warm, friendly, wonderful person, who works so very hard, in making everything just right for you. Our wedding was done during covid, with very limiting factors and numbers, but even this was dealt with brilliantly and diligently, ensuring everyones safety came first.

You were such a huge,
MASSIVE! part of our day.

From the moment we met you we knew you would be perfect for us, and you really were, you did such an amazing job for us, everyone said they had never been to such a lovely ceremony, and that was down to you, we really couldn’t have asked for more..
also, I may have ended up in my t shirt and jeans if you hadn’t been there to dress me …we will always have such lovely fond memories of you on our day, we knew you would be fab, but you surpassed even how good we thought the ceremony would be!… people are still messaging me about you … We actually can’t thank you enough, and will be forever grateful to have found you xx

Well what can we say about Michelle, she was professional and comical throughout. Knowing Michelle whilst in the police service I knew she was the one to conduct our ceremony. She came with brilliant reviews and boy she didn’t disappoint.Planning: From start to finish Michelle listened to our every word, Michelle and Kevin (our photographer and Michelle’s Husband) even visited our place of engagement to get a proper feel of what we were after. We asked for a Bletchley Park / 1940s / World War II themed wedding and that is certainly what we got. Michelle’s planning ideas were the bigger the better with crosswords and sing a longs even being thrown around we knew it was going to be an incredible ceremony. To the smallest details of even finding out the postage cost on our wedding certificate to make it that authentic, no job was to big or to small.Ceremony: The ceremony had a warming and delicate feel to it. Michelle’s voice was soothing and excited when needed, she knew her script and was brilliant at throwing banter from time to time ad hoc. The idea of a crossword made our ceremony funny and different and this was exactly what we were after. It was truly a tailored experience we would not have got elsewhere. We would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for a ceremony with a difference. We cannot put in words how outstanding she was. We wish we could do it all over again.

Thank you

Thank you

Renewal Of Vows | 02/17/2018 | Little Bromley, Essex

Michelle our funky celebrant, thank you for giving us the most amazing vow renewal, everybody commented how lovely it was. People actually commented how it was so nice to see old traditions of tying the knot by hand fasting and the much fun of jumping the broomstick. The ceremony was fun with the story of our journey to 10 years and the cheeky quotes you added which made everyone giggle but also the beautiful way you conducted the seriousness and special readings to, I really can’t say how amazing you are at what you do.Thank you for making our day so special, also becoming a friend and really getting to know us and all the love support you’ve also given us all the way up to the ceremony whether that was face to face meetings phone calls and emails you really have been fab.I really hope you keep in touch.
