Hi, I'm Paul
My decision to train to be a Celebrant was inspired by my love of working with people.
Previously I have worked as a Radio presenter and I have Dj’d at lots of weddings. I have also worked as a funeral coordinator in the past, so when clients came to the branch I would help arrange their loved ones funerals from start to finish.
I felt I had a specific calling to be a celebrant, as I wanted to do something to support people at one of the most significant moments in their lives – dealing with the loss of a loved one, having that special wedding service together or the naming ceremony for a new born baby.
What's my ceremony style?
I have a warm personality and can adapt myself to my surroundings. If you require a calm relaxing service, I can deliver that for you and on the flip side If you’re throwing out the rule book and having a larger than life ceremony I can also help and deliver that service to your requirements. Whatever you decide I will help you put the wheels into motion with planning meetings to ensure we achieve your dream day. When it comes to weddings and naming ceremonies, my unique area is the unusual locations like Castles, , Ships, Grand Buildings, Historical Buildings, Urban Locations, and I would love to to be the celebrant for your big day at one of these fantastic locations.
Weddings, Renewal of vows, Naming ceremonies from £300. Funerals from £200
Why choose Paul?
I love to meet people and enjoy nothing more than being able to share their happy day with them. Working as a celebrant, I have the luxury of being a spectator to a wonderful moment in peoples lives, whether it’s your wedding day, renewing of your vows or a naming ceremony for a new born. I will work with you to deliver a very special occasion so that you can relax and enjoy the moment.
What do I offer?
Every couple is unique and deserves to be able to celebrate their special day the way they want. I personally cover wedding ceremonies from locations that are not so much of a traditional setting . If you’re having your service in an Old Castle, Ship, Grand Building, Historical Building, or an Urban setting, then I would be happy to create that special moment for you.
So feel free to contact me about your desired ceremony.
Why choose Paul for your wedding?
A Celebrant led wedding ceremony allows you to personalise your ceremony to your beliefs, personalities, style and preferences.
You can add readings, poetry, even songs into your ceremony.
If you’re wedding is taking place at a not so traditional venue such as a Castle, Ship, Grand Building, Historical Building, Urban Area, then I’m the celebrant to help deliver this for you.
Whatever your age or the age of the person at the naming ceremony I can work with you to make sure that this day is remembered and special for all those involved.
I can work with families for a small service or larger gatherings depending on your needs.
Why choose Paul for your naming ceremony?
Naming Ceremonies are a wonderful way to welcome new children, whether they are babies born into the family or children adopted into the family.
It is a beautiful celebration of new life and of the family surrounding you all. If you already know that a fully religious ceremony is not right for you, a Naming Ceremony can be the perfect way to welcome your child surrounded by family and friends.
I will work with you to make this occasion very special and one to remember.
Renewal of Vows
A vow renewal is a celebratory ceremony for a married couple to reaffirm their commitment to each other. They are especially popular on milestone anniversaries (10, 25, or 50 years), however, there is no rule as to when to have one.
Every couple is unique and deserves to be able to celebrate their special renewal of vows the way they want. I personally cover ceremonies from locations that are not so much of a traditional setting .
If you’re having your service in an Old Castle, Ship, Grand Building, Historical Building, or an Urban setting, then I would be happy to create that special moment for you.
So feel free to contact me about your desired ceremony.
Why choose Paul for your renewal of vows?
Renewing your vows is a beautiful way to show how much love you and your partner have for one another. Each relationship is unique in their own magical and wonderful ways and therefore when you make that decision to express your love to each other again, those renewals will hold different meanings to each couple. I can help guide you with suggestions to making your day special all over again. We can sit and plan the best way to mark this milestone in your married life. Where ever you decide to have your ceremony, between us we can make that day just as memorable as the first time.
I tend to work with local funeral directors and can carry out traditional through to specialised funerals.
I will work with anyone that requires my services and will do my upmost to ensure your loved one gets the service they deserve.
Why choose Paul for your funeral?
There is no doubt that a carefully planned funeral ceremony marks a very important commemoration of the life that has been lived and the chance for you and your family to say goodbye in a way that is unique.
As an experienced, Insured and qualified Civil Funeral Celebrant I am able to offer a high level of quality in the ceremonies I conduct on your behalf. My priority is to create and tailor a ceremony that meets your needs and wishes and which fits with your philosophical, cultural or spiritual values.

If I could give 10 stars I would!
Paul was the celebrant for my daughter’s naming day which was held on her first birthday too! He was so relaxed and really helped set the tone for the whole day which was amazing. He was very attentive in the lead up to the event and was very easy to communicate with. During the ceremony he was extremely professional and spoke about all the things we had discussed beforehand. He was very sweet with our daughter who was trying to “help”.
An absolutely fantastic celebrant for any occasion & a real gentleman. We will look forward to him being at our next big family event!
I was hesitant at first about having a celebrant, as we had previously had a small wedding at the registry office in July but could only have 12 people attend, so we decided to carry on with our celebration of our wedding at The Royal Beach Hotel as this had been postponed three times due to Covid 19.
We hired Paul as a celebrant for our wedding he was so efficient, professional and handsome, (in his suit) he carried out a consultation with us at our home before the event,kept us informed all the way through from beginning to end.
It was so beautiful and myself and guests were truly moved by it.
I would highly recommend Paul this completed our special day where all our friends and family could attend and be part of our long awaited celebration of our marriage.
