Hi, I'm Karen

Congratulations on finding that special someone to share your life with!

I love to meet new people, hear their stories and learn about what is important to them. Every couple has their own story to tell and the ceremonies I create with couples are as individual as they are.

In addition to being a celebrant, I also work as a health visitor and before that I was a midwife.
I’ve been so privileged to meet many wonderful people from different cultures and backgrounds, and share significant moments in their lives, whether it’s been delivering a fantastic wedding ceremony or their baby!

What's my ceremony style?

My ceremonies have been described as romantic, elegant, fun, modern and memorable.

I will deliver the ceremony you want, the focus of the ceremony will be you and your relationship, it’s your wedding, your way. A celebration of your love and commitment to each other.

I am a creative person, with degrees in photography and visual culture. I have an eye for detail and understand the importance of the presentation of your special day, visually and in words.

Celebrant led weddings can be held anywhere, we can include themes or rituals like handfasting. There are no rules and no limits to what we can create together!


Why choose Karen?

The decision to marry is an important milestone, one that should be marked in a way that is absolutely right for you.

I love what I do, every couple and every wedding is important to me. I am professional and will work hard to create the best ceremony possible, one that truly reflects you and your partner. I will take the time to get to know you and give you as much support and advice as you need.

My ceremonies are welcoming, inclusive and fun! They are also designed to be meaningful to everyone present, whatever their beliefs.

What do I offer?

Why choose Karen for your wedding?

If you would like to book me a deposit secures me for the day.
I will be here, every step of the way to help you with your ceremony planning and to create the ceremony that you want, that reflects you as a couple. We will work on the script together until it is just right.

I’ve been trained by Humanists UK, of course this doesn’t mean that you must be a Humanist to book me. But it does mean I’ve had fantastic training, I’m peer reviewed, receive regular updates and have the support of the organisation.

I get great feedback from couples, their families and guests. I will work really hard to make your special day a perfect day.

Karen was excellent. She is a lovely person and made everyone feel relaxed on the day.
The ceremony was so personal to the two of us, everyone commented on how unique and loving it was.
We thank her for being such an important part of the best day of our lives.


A Beautiful and Memorable Wedding Ceremony

5 Stars

Wedding | 08/20/2022 | Woodthorpe Hall Derbyshire

Karen was wonderful to work with from start to finish. We’re so grateful to her for creating a beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony for us. Karen met with us on several occasions before our ceremony (both online and in person) and took care to really understand us as a couple. She was always very responsive to our questions, and even had suggestions for our ceremony music (which we eventually used!). My partner and I really had the feeling that Karen wanted to help create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple, and that she took the time to craft this. We were absolutely thrilled with the final ceremony and received lots of comments from friends and family who enjoyed how personal it was. We would wholeheartedly recommend Karen to anyone thinking of holding a humanist celebration or ceremony.


Beyond Thrilled

Wedding | 08/04/2022 | The Albert Hall Manchester

We had such a wonderful experience with Karen from the offset. Karen was so personable and accommodating; we found we had so much in common with her and she was a natural fit for our ceremony. We both felt exceptionally at ease throughout the process with Karen, she made our process fun, and we always looked forward to meeting up with her or hearing from her. We felt our process was collaborative from the offset and were beyond thrilled with the outcome on the day. We would highly recommend Karen to others and would look to Karen for any future ceremonies we may have. It was honestly the biggest pleasure working with Karen.
