Hi, I'm Petra
I’m Petra (she/her) and I craft dreamy ceremonies for glorious couples and families across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire who want to create something truly meaningful for the biggest days in their lives.
Ceremony is so important, and you deserve to have a choice over what that looks like and who tells your love story. The person who stands in front of your friends and family should be someone you trust to tell your story, not a stranger you met only minutes earlier. If you’re not religious, you might think a registrar is your only option, but no – that’s where a celebrant (like me!) comes in.
Having a celebrant for my own wedding was a game changer and I want that for you too: you deserve for every moment of your wedding to be a joyous celebration. I’d love to be the one to help make that happen.
Together, we can make something magical. Your ceremony can have traditional elements or be totally quirky – whatever matters to you, I’m on board.
What's my ceremony style?
Your ceremony will be written to reflect you as a couple or family. It’ll celebrate your origin story by weaving in poetry, quotes from your favourite movies, or excerpts from your first dating app exchanges – whatever speaks to your souls. I have always been drawn to a perfect sentence and lyrical storytelling, so I can promise you a beautifully crafted script that’ll make your hearts sing. It’ll be a totally sincere ceremony, but that doesn’t mean solemn! There’ll be plenty of laughter, sprinkles of silliness, and those tear-jerking moments that give your guests all the feels.
Why choose Petra?
The couples and families I work with are all about connection. They want a celebrant who will really get to know them and tell their story with absolute authenticity. They want the person standing up in front of their family and friends to be someone they genuinely vibe with; a professional friend who delivers their ceremony with love and warmth. That’s me.
What do I offer?
My ideal couple are fun-loving, laidback and ready to celebrate their wedding with total joy. I love working with couples who want to do something a bit different – those who are ready to throw out the rule book and ideally have a dog in their bridal party! If yours is an outdoor, feminist or LGBTQ+ wedding, bursting with colour and playfulness then you’re speaking my love language. I’m also a sucker for any ceremony in a quirky space or a beautiful building that takes your breath away. If you want to make your day a total, joy-filled celebration of everything that matters to you both, then you’re my kind of people.
As a celebrant, the main and most important aspect of my job is getting to know you both. We’ll have video calls and meet-ups, I’ll be all over your Instagram and fangirling on your Stories, and I’ll send links and ideas your way that I think might be helpful as you work towards creating your perfect day. All this means you will have a ceremony that truly reflects you as a couple, delivered with love by someone who genuinely cares for you both and the life you are about to start together.
Why choose Petra for your wedding?
If you are looking for someone who is obsessed with words and how storytelling can make you feel, then I’m your girl. I firmly believe the ceremony should be your favourite part of the day and I am completely dedicated to making your ceremony everything you want it to be. I’ll make sure we have a lot of fun and laughter along the way. I’ll be a friendly face on the day, ready to give you a reassuring squeeze and then meet you in the ceremony space so the joy can really begin.
Whether you want someone to hold your hand through the process, or you’re already bursting with ideas and want me to help make that a reality, I’m on board.
Having a baby is a huge deal. I get it completely. Your head and heart is filled with so much and it’s my job to extract all of that to craft the perfect ceremony. In our chats I want to listen to everything you’re willing to share with me – your birth story, all the nitty gritty of that experience of growing a human, and what life is like now you have settled into the rhythm of parenthood. This miraculous transformation we take as parents – both physically and emotionally – is worth shouting about and I would love to help you do that.
Naming ceremonies are not just about celebrating biological birth: many families choose to mark adoption or the welcoming of step-children with a ceremony. There is space for so much celebration under the ‘naming’ umbrella – this might be a renaming after transition, or changing back to a maiden name after divorce. Whatever your reason for celebrating, and however that looks to you, I would love to help tell your story.
Why choose Petra for your naming ceremony?
Often families aren’t quite sure of all the possibilities of a naming ceremony, so I am here to hold your hand through that process, filling you with ideas and enthusiasm to welcome this new person into your community.
I will be a warm, friendly face on the day – delivering a ceremony that has been crafted with love and all the hopes and dreams you have for the future.
