Hi, I'm Shelley

I have been a Celebrant for 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.

What's my ceremony style?

I specialise in outdoor venues such as woodlands, vineyards and barns though have been known to pop up at the odd country house.

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.

Amazing Performance

5 Stars
Alex Woodcock

Wedding | 08/06/2022 | Hatfield Place, Essex

Where do I begin???! After two postponements and a quick registry office last year, we found Shelley to be our celebrant about three months before our ceremony this year. She has been so amazing from start to finish. Shelley went through all our likes and dislikes and tailored our ceremony around us as a couple.
One of the main things that sticks out to me is that Shelley took away all the stress from us and sorted it all! On the day, Shelley gave an amazing performance and ‘tied the knot’ for us, which everyone commented on after by saying how lovely it was.
I would highly recommend and I urge everyone to get in touch with Shelley as she offers such different and personalised ceremonies. Lot’s of love Shelley and I hope our paths cross in the near future!

Feeling the Love

Wedding | 04/30/2022 | Little Tey Barn

WOW! Thank you so much, for such a wonderful and meaningful ceremony. You are truly amazing at your work. I had many complements from family and friends about how moving the service was. And just so perfect for us two. 

I now feel weirdly complete. I hated our town hall ceremony and was filled with such disappointment about what marriage was. Felt like such a legal act. But you really flipped my feelings over and have left me with warm and happy memories. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
