Hi, I'm Stuart

Hi, I am a professional celebrant based in Norfolk, working closely with individuals, couples and families across the county.

Having witnessed celebrants create and deliver unique ceremonies at my own family weddings and funerals, I gained an appreciation of the amazing difference a professional celebrant makes to an occasion. Being part of a milestone event and helping to create lasting memories for someone is something I find incredibly rewarding. Following a successful career in various sectors I took the time to reflect upon how my empathy, skills and personal values would lend themselves to be a professional celebrant and I am thoroughly delighted to be working within this area.

What's my ceremony style?

I enjoy all types of ceremony, from the more traditional to the totally off beat! I love working in different and unusual locations and Norfolk has so many perfect environments where you can celebrate or remember in a place cherished by you and your loved ones. Where is your special place?

Create a totally unique ceremony and make memories you will cherish forever.

Why choose Stuart?

I bring a sense of respectful fun and poignancy to your celebration, having built a close working relationship with you so we fully understand and trust one another to make your special day the best it can be. Totally unique and delivered with professionalism and diplomacy, I would be delighted to be part of your forthcoming celebration or memorial. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

What do I offer?



Your wedding is perhaps the most memorable day of your life, and you naturally want your special day to be totally unique. By having a ceremony that is tailored completely to you, your wedding will be unlike any other. Traditional weddings don’t allow for much personalisation and the flow of events is very similar. By choosing a Celebrant for your wedding, you can choose exactly which content you want. From choice of readings, to music, and writing your own vows, your ceremony will be made your own and reflect the true love you have for one another. Let the ceremony entwine itself around your story, rather than make your story fit around a ceremony. A wedding ceremony that your guests will remember for how special it truly was. A step away from tradition, you can hold your ceremony somewhere that has a personal resonance for you.

Let’s start with an initial meeting to discuss your plans & wishes at your home. Am I the right celebrant for you? If I am the next step is a longer consultation to plan the structure and look of your ceremony. I will then write your unique wedding ceremony, submitting drafts for you to review, working on further revisions together as required. I can support you to write your vows/promises and help with selecting readings and music. Perhaps you would like to include an additional element to your day, such as Handfasting, Unity Candles, Sand Ceremonies, Ring Warming or Lamp Lighting
After we have celebrated your big day together I will provide you with a keepsake copy of your full ceremony script and a printed ‘Ceremony Certificate’ for you to treasure.

Why choose Stuart for your wedding?

I love to see and feel the excitement building as I work with a couple on their ceremony for their big day. I will encourage ideas to be explored and provide you with as much support as you would like during your journey. Let’s make your memories as vivid in the following years as they will be on your special day!


Naming Ceremonies

The act of naming your newborn is an incredibly precious moment. It is the opportunity to officially welcome your child into this world, surrounded by all your loved ones.

I can guide you through the entire naming ceremony process, taking the time to get to know you and your family, to ensure the ceremony I create is exactly as you imagined it. Of course, you can still add some of the more traditional, religious hymns or bible readings, but in a way that suits you.

Dependent upon requirement, please ask.

Why choose Stuart for your naming ceremony?

Using my Celebrant experience, I can help to give your child a magnificent welcome, whether this is held at your home, your local village hall or a place where you feel truly connected.


Renewal of Vows

Renewing your vows in later life is a true testament to your relationship, confirming to the world that you are stronger than ever and providing an opportunity to reflect on one of the happiest days of your lives. Reaffirming your love for each other is a great way to celebrate that milestone wedding anniversary or having successfully worked your way through the tougher times in life.

Renew your vows in any location, using your original wedding rings or perhaps something new entirely. You can walk down the aisle to your first dance song, and you can create your own personal vows that resonate with each other today. It’s a time to reflect on the memories that you have created so far, and the journey yet to come – a truly special time in your lives that you will remember forever.

Dependent upon requirement, please ask.

Why choose Stuart for your renewal of vows?

I love that a renewal of vows provides the opportunity to involve newer family members who may not have been at your wedding, such as your children or grandchildren, bringing together all your loved ones to celebrate a truly joyful occasion. I embrace and encourage your extended family to be part of the day, even the faithful pooch!



Losing a loved one can be an exceptionally traumatic time, without even thinking about the next steps of saying goodbye surrounded by friends and family. Grief is one of the hardest emotions to deal with, and everyone copes differently. Whether you require help planning a funeral ceremony from scratch, or your loved one left their wishes to be followed out, I can help you navigate this tough time.

My aim is to help you celebrate the life of your loved one, in a compassionate way that truly reflects their personality. They have made an impact on your life, let me help show the rest of the world just how great a person they truly were. It’s a time to collect the memories of those around you, giving you all the chance to cherish the times you had and share these together.

Why choose Stuart for your funeral?

Respected and trusted by funeral directors and families alike, I will meet with you and your family, allowing me to truly capture the character and personality of your loved one. I will deliver your chosen style of ceremony with sincerity, compassion and humour if that’s appropriate. Keepsake copies of the eulogy will be provided for you to cherish.

I would like to thank you on behalf of my family and friends for conducting such a wonderful celebration for my husband Dave on Friday. You played an essential role in bringing all the different elements of the service together and delivered the eulogy with real feeling. Some people thought you were a family friend! The celebration surpassed our expectations and was a moving and uplifting occasion which we shall remember for a long time. Thank you for your compassion, warmth and professionalism.

Funeral | 06/19/2020 | Colney Wood

The service we received from Stuart Kenrick was first class. At a time when we, as a family, were at our lowest ebb, Stuart got us through. Nothing was too much trouble and he sent our family the service eulogy as a memento of the day. He was our family voice when we couldn’t say the words, through our grief. Stuart does his job as a Celebrant, with dignity and care.
