Hi, I'm Pamela

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile and for considering me for a future position as your trusted celebrant. It will be my honour and pleasure to work with you to ensure your ceremony is all you wish it to be, and beyond what you ever expected.

I live near Sleaford in Lincolnshire, and cover: Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Cambridgeshire, South Yorks, Humber and Rutland. I am more than happy to discuss undertaking celebrancy services in other areas.

My background was as the owner of a Presentation and Public Speaking skills company in South Africa (where I lived for 9 years).

That all sounds a bit serious but couldn’t be further from the truth. Please do look at my reviews, both here and on my website: www.psb-civilcelebrant@ gmail.co.uk. More than anything else they will give you a really solid idea of what I am like. I might be a word-smith, but hopefully, so much more.

What's my ceremony style?

I get involved in all ideas my clients have. This year one of my clients held their wedding in the theme park’s Pyramid at Ingoldmells, with a huge plaster pterodactyl looking down over us.
Fields, back gardens etc., I love them all.
I adore the beauty of Indian and Pakistani weddings. The careful religious consideration for family and friends as I build the script for the British wedding section of the day, that follows on from the temple. Same sex marriages are awesome, (I buy my hankies in bulk – I kid you not). Participation of children, parents and pets are all normal and fun.>•

Why choose Pamela?

My services to get you to your magical day

Support – constant support – composing, reviewing and leading you through, from the very first moment of meeting, to the point when I can see you both, amongst your friends and family, drinking your champagne and posing for your wedding photos.

1. First stop is an initial Zoom to say ’Hello’ and for you to assess if I am the person for you – no obligation. I, too, will be absorbing your characters, and the feel of what you are looking for regarding: audience participation, those missing, rituals, pets, music, readings (if you know any of those at the time of our chat).
2. Approximately six (6) weeks prior to your ceremony I’ll start crafting and composing the script; finding a theme/story to link poems and readings with the mood of what we want to say. (I was a presentation skills trainer, so be confident that the content will be very special: thoughtful, profound, inclusive, sophisticated and fun.)
3. We’ll Zoom again and you will hear the full script, including all readings, poems and rituals (if you have chosen any). Of course, you have final say on anything at all!
4. I will finalise the script and follow up for any missing information. There will quite a few emails between us all.
5. I will contact any ‘readers’ to have a chat and make them feel comfortable.
6. A few days prior to the ceremony we will have the final Zoom. I won’t go through the exact script with you, as I want it to be ‘fresh’. I will go through the timeline, however, so you know what is coming up.
7. I will produce the Wedding certificate for signing.
8. I will produce the Order of Ceremony for chairs.
9. If we are doing a Handfasting, I will produce the binding ribbons or rope.
10. I will produce the text cards for promises and readings.
11. I will be at the venue an hour beforehand to talk to the venue contact, photographer and the person looking after the music (i.e. generally everyone taking part, including who has the rings!).
12. And so we have the ceremony, all those months of waiting, absorbing those words of love between you both – and me somewhere in the middle of it!
13. A few weeks later your signed certificate and the full text of the ceremony will be sent to you – sent with hugs from me.
REMEMBER: You don’t need to incorporate signing, rituals etc. if any of those are not for you. This is your day, your way.

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile and for considering me for a future position as your trusted celebrant. It will be my honour and pleasure to work with you to ensure your ceremony is all you wish it to be, and beyond what you ever expected.

I live near Sleaford in Lincolnshire, and as a Family Celebrant I cover the counties of Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Rutland. I also conduct ceremonies in Gibraltar and parts of Southern Spain. I am more than happy to discuss undertaking celebrancy services in other areas both nationally and internationally.

My background is as an owner of a Presentation and Public Speaking skills company in South Africa (where I lived for nine years). Incorporating Writing Skills coaching I was contracted to train business managers, along with members of The Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

That all sounds a bit serious but couldn’t be further from the truth. I am very ‘bouncy’ and smile and laugh a lot, which is reflected in the way I compose, and lead, ceremonies. (I give pretty good hugs too.)

What this means for you is that I am able to reduce your nerves on the day of your ceremony. You may be thinking there will be no nerves but I assure you there will be and they will be flying in formation in your tummy. But don’t worry, I can help you with the tips, techniques and layout for flawless, confidently-spoken vows, and we will have rehearsed prior to the day so you will be confident knowing the layout and flow of the whole beautiful occasion. The result will mean you have the time to take in the day, your smiling family and friends, the special words and the excitement.

The Amazing Pamela

Wedding | 09/27/2022 | Fantasy Island Ingoldmells

I dont know were to begin with explaining how amazing Pamela is. From the very first email she made me feel completely at ease as i was a nervous wreck. I had soo many comments on my wedding day at how personal and intimate my ceremony was. The advice she gives is second to none. If i could do it all over again i would choose Pamela in a heart beat. This is the only photo i have at the moment as my wedding was less than 2 weeks ago :)

Thank you so very much Pam! You created the most perfect wedding ceremony that combined two different cultures and brought them stronger together with the reminder of what true love is.

You were thoughtful and considerate with our script and made sure that the messages we wanted to convey were present and centre.

We can’t thank you enough for helping us create such beautiful memories. Thank you for starting our journey with words that came from light and love!

When my husband and I first met Pamela, we immediately knew she was the celebrant for us. She’s warm, funny, and just the sort of person you want to sit on the sofa and have a cup of tea with.

As we went through the process of writing our ceremony script with Pamela, she couldn’t be more helpful or kind, and was always on hand to come up with wonderful suggestions.

She created such a beautifully bespoke ceremony for us, that was so different to any wedding I had been to before (and yet she totally respected that we also wanted it to also feed very traditional, so it was a wonderful mix of the two).

We’ll treasure the wonderful words she wrote for us forever, and we’ve had so many compliments from our guests on what a wonderful job Pamela did.
