Hi, I'm Gemma

I have worked in the Wedding and Event Industry since 2009 both as a freelance planner and in hotels and venues across the North East and have been involved in hundreds of weddings over that time. I’m obsessed with all things wedding and love nothing more than personalising ceremonies to suit the couples individual style. Your Wedding Ceremony should tell your love story and represent you as a couple. With a Celebrant led ceremony you have the freedom to fully express yourselves and create your vision for your celebration.

Whether it’s a Wedding Ceremony, Commitment Ceremony, Naming Ceremony or Renewal of Vows, I will help you cherish those special moments with a truly meaningful and significant ceremony – one that will be remembered for years to come. With a degree in Performing Arts, I also specialise in themed weddings and cosplay and am happy to discuss and explore this option with you.

Wedding | 07/05/2022 | Let there be crumbs, Roker Hotel, Sunderland

We were sprung into the world of celebrants due to a venue change and a shortage of registrars, but we feel so lucky that everything turned out as it has done.

Gemma is absolutely lovely, really friendly and is happy to do whatever to make the day run smoothly (she even had duct tape to sort the wedding parties pocket squares which weren’t staying right!)

We had an initial chat with Gemma before deciding on booking her where we had a chat about what a celebrant does and a general chat about us. This was not a sales pitch, Gemma truely wanted us to make the right decision for us, even if that had been a different celebrant or a registrar. I am usually a person that sleeps on every decision but half an hour after our meeting I’d booked Gemma such was the vibe I’d got from her!

After another couple of meetings, Gemma wrote a draft of our ceremony and it was perfect! We decided to have a sand ceremony after discussing various symbolic ceremonys with Gemma so we could have something to keep after the day.

We did the ‘legal’ bit on the Friday at the registry office with 2 witnesses this was nice and intimate but took absolutely nothing away from the ceremony Gemma led the following day. Everything Gemma put into the ceremony was so much more personal than the ‘legal stuff’ and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony!

If you are in two minds on whether to have a celebrant we would definitely say a celebrant is the way to go and Gemma is the one to go for!

Renewal Of Vows | 09/04/2022 | The Clarion Hotel

We cannot thank Gem enough for our amazing service and her hard work! Having got married in lockdown we kept our wedding day and asked Gem to do our service. From that moment she’s been in constant contact with us guiding us all the way! Gem has amazing ideas and is really down to earth! We have a 2 year old who wouldn’t leave my side throughout the service and Gem instantly changed her script to incorporate him more in the service, even helping to tie our hands to “tie the knot”
We look forward to sharing pictures with you and thank you again for such a beautiful and personal service
