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 perfect.
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 (including public liability insurance).

Humorous, loving and carefully crafted
Karen was amazing throughout the whole process from booking to performing the ceremony – it was such a special ceremony!
Humorous, loving and carefully crafted – we received lots of positive feedback about our ceremony.
We were completely overjoyed with how unique, emotional and personal our wedding ceremony was. We are so grateful for Karen for guiding us through designing a personal ceremony and vows. It was exactly how we hoped it would be and would definitely recommend Karen and a humanist wedding to others.
Open and understanding
Karen was open and understanding of what we wanted from our ceremony from the start. She could not have been more helpful to us throughout the whole process., giving us feedback on suggestions and our thoughts for the ceremony. There was great communication from the start. Karen had everything under control on the day and the ceremony was brilliant.
