EXPERIENCE

Since proudly receiving my certificate in training from The Fellowship of Professional Celebrants 7 yrs ago I have written and officiated at numerous very individual and creative ceremonies. Whether the ceremony is indoors, small and intimate or outdoors and large with the wind blowing, everyone tells me how clearly and well my voice carries. I am now a presenter on Radio Ninesprings 104.5fm and all because of my voice!

I am able to use inspiration from my very diverse career which has covered a wide area of work. I first worked in television and also trained with the Samaritans, spent several years farming, ran my own design company and have been involved in many formal public speaking roles whilst also bringing up my family.

Every couple I write with are unique and special and I love to help them expand their ideas so that the ceremony includes everything they want or maybe never knew they wanted. Together we explore the possibility of including members of their family and friends into the ceremony, which can sometimes be a very healing aspect and often the most surprising people come forward wanting to contribute and show their love to the couple. Every couple have their story and I feel it is my job to encourage and help them explore it so they experience the very best in creating a unique and warm wedding ceremony.

My colleague, Bardy and I also write and offiate at Funerals, Internment of ashes, and Memorial services and the same attention is paid in writing and helping a family put together the very best ceremony to reflect a life.

CEREMONY STYLE

As many of my wedding couples come from abroad our phone conversations and emails are the only contact we have until we meet on the day. But after all our creative writing it is like a meeting of good friends!

Often we work together to include rituals and readings from other cultures and religions so I am very experienced in 'Tang Yuan' Chinese Tea ceremony, Jewish breaking of glass, South American 'Las Arras', Scandinavian wedding traditions, Handfasting, Unity Candle and Renewal of Vows. I also assist with Baby Naming and the welcoming of children to the family.

I have officiated at small intimate ceremonies and large ones of over 250 guests. Locations include hotels and country houses of all sizes to remote hillsides, farmyards, Grandma's beautiful garden or a secluded wood carpeted in bluebells.

Recommendations have led me to travelling all over the country and meeting the most interesting people. Several of my couples still keep in touch and it is always nice to hear from them.

There are no rules to writing either a wedding or funeral service, it is all about the families involved, the ceremony and whom it is for.

As soon as we decided upon having a celebrant officiate our home wedding we met quite a few potential candidates and Pippa stood head and shoulders above the crowd. Knowledgeable and creative, she understood our plans and worked with us to produce exactly the ceremony we wanted. Always on hand to chat and email ideas back and forth we felt in very safe from start to finish. On the day itself Pippa was calm, assured and engaging, exactly as we had hoped. Thanks Pippa!

Pippa was very understanding of our unique situation when we first approached her. Having explained to us her previous experience with Asian ceremonies, she made us feel at ease and helped to create a memorable ceremony. Pippa was able to ensure the all aspects of the ceremony went smoothly, and always took the time to ensure we were happy with everything.

Lucy

Iron Age Fort | May 2017

Pippa completely got our brief, the sentiment and the mad location, we couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate for us. Not only was she brilliant at guiding us in how we could conduct the service but gave advice on how we could successfully include various members of our families AND she managed to be heard over a howling gale - no mean feat!

Wonderful Celebrant

Paul Moreton

Court Farm, Standerwick | August 2017

Pippa was incredible. We had a different celebrant initially and Pippa had to step in. She was professional, organised and just a lovely person to work with. She wrote our ceremony using her vast experience and tailored it to us as a couple. Showing up early on the day was great. It allowed her to run through the order, meet key people and introduce herself and ensured the ceremony ran smoothly. Words of encouragement for me whilst seeing my wife walk down the aisle was an added touch of personalisation. Would highly recommend.

Tailor made ceremony

Joanne Leighfield

Somerset | June 2016

Pippa was the celebrant for our small, outdoor wedding last year. Right from our first phone conversation she was warm, friendly and immediately put us at ease. She allowed us to tailor make our ceremony, ensuring we were happy through all stages of planning. She also facilitated a hand-fasting at the end of our ceremony. My husband and I enjoyed a perfect wedding day, Pippa was a very large part of helping make that happen. I would definitely recommend her services.
