Hi, I'm Shelley

I have been a family celebrant for almost three years now and have been lucky to work in some amazing locations with some fabulous people.

For me a family celebration should be exactly that – a celebration!! Be it a Wedding, Vow Renewal, Mamma Blessing or Naming Ceremony it is created with the wishes of those we are celebrating in mind, with a little bit of help from me.

I will work with anyone, anywhere and the creative freedom in my work means I get to offer a unique ceremony and personalised service that my clients have relished.

My professionalism and attention to detail has meant that I have become a trusted member of the family to many of my clients and venues recognise me as a preferred supplier because they know I will take care of their clients in the way that befits their brand.

I want you, as my client, to have a day as near to perfect as we can make it.

I want you to have the day of your dreams and if I can make it even better then I’ve really cracked it!

Fully trained, registered and insured, you can rest assured that I will look after you and your needs in any and every way I can and that your celebration will be one that you and all of your guests hold close to their hearts for a very long time.

What's my ceremony style?

I offer weddings in any locations – from country house hotels, to woodlands and vineyards to beaches and even a graveyard!

Naming ceremonies and vow renewals have been in people’s backyards and zoo’s.

I don’t mind if we are celebrating a dawn wedding at solstice or a midnight wedding with gothic grandeur, if we can make it work we will, because its not about me as the celebrant, it’s about you and your dreams and wishes.

I love to make my ceremonies unusual and bring in other elements, that could be Aunty Marjorie doing a heartfelt reading or your whole congregation participating in a ring warming or handfasting. I love a challenge and challenge myself to make no two of my ceremonies the same, to the extent where if I have used a reading in one ceremony I’ll not include it ever again for anyone else (unless its really meaningful to them).

Why choose Shelley?

People choose me because I am in their corner from the moment we meet. The wants of my clients are my mission and their satisfaction is my motivation. Your excitement is my excitement.

I will spend time getting to know my clients, from how they met to how they would like their ceremony to be remembered. I will match styles and colour schemes and am totally flexible in location and timings as I only book one ceremony a day, that way if Uncle Fred is late getting down from Aberdeen to Essex, then with the co-operation of the venue, we wait for Uncle Fred, so he can walk you down the aisle as you wish.

Just a line to say what a wonderful job you did yesterday at Jim’s funeral. It was perfect and you got everything just right. It was a real celebration of life and everyone said how much they had enjoyed it…..that was down to you.You have such a caring way with you, putting everyone at their ease. It wasn’t a sad day, all our friends were there and it was great to see them all under one roof. I do hope you consider it one of your best services, we all applaud you xx

Thank you so much, not just for yesterday but for all of your involvement.We felt very looked after and safe in your hands which made the service do-able.It was pretty much perfect in our eyes and Dad would have loved it. Mum was so brave, we were all so proud of her. Your delivery of the ‘dropping the trousers’ story was spot on.I know I’m biased but I thought it was the best service ever. You have a gift of setting just the right tone without anyone noticing it. You did that when we first met you and you did it again yesterday – so a big thenk you Shelley, you’re the best.
