Are you having a destination wedding in the sun? Where will your ceremony be, on a beach, on the top of a mountain, spa hotel or in a beautiful garden, serene and intimate? Whatever the ceremony, and wherever you want it to be, you will want it to be well written, unique to you, and you will want it to tell your story your own way, you will want the perfect day! Welcome to my world, a world of composing, writing and delivering stories. I spend a lot of time getting to know those involved, hearing what they want to say and the style they want to say it in. Only then will I put pen to paper and start creating. So, if you want creativity, love and passion, someone who is passionate about getting it just so, then you are in the right place. I am a story teller, composing, hand writing, and delivering unique and very personal ceremonies and services in Southern Spain and the UK.
In my previous life I worked in large London law firms for 37 years. I worked with teams from all around the globe including CEOs, MPs and members of the House of Lords. I am a stepmother to two lovely children and a grandma to a gorgeous grandson. I trained as an Independent Celebrant with Terri Shanks and am a fully qualified member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. Not only did I train as a Celebrant but also moved to another country. I now live and work in Andalucía in southern Spain, surrounded by mountains, lovely beaches and close enough to Malaga to enjoy its many delights.
As an Independent Celebrant I am fully inclusive and diverse, everyone is welcome, no need to ask, love is love, from first to last; and, if you wish to add a touch of spirituality to your ceremony, this can be done. For your wedding, your friends and family will witness your ceremony so the words need to be yours written by me. They need to show your personality and sense of humour, after all, who said on your wedding day you couldn’t have fun! I believe everyone should have the ceremony they desire. For an end of life celebration, you are telling the live story of the loved one you have lost, this needs to be written with care and loving compassion, mourning the loss but celebrating their life and achievements.
We will work together until the final draft is exactly what you want and shouts out loud "This is it". I am a teller of stories and would love to be your Celebrant, telling your story.
I am happy to lead ceremonies anywhere, from your garden to a castle, on a beach to a mountain top. I like my weddings to be filled with love, romance, passion but most of all fun and laughter, your ceremony will come from the heart.
When conducting an end of life service, I like to tell the story of the person, who were they? What did they do?What is their life story? It will be sad in places, but we also need to speak of happy times and share your memories of the exploits, fun and laughter your loved one brought into your life, giving a full and rounded peak through the window in to their past and their life.
I am happy to conduct your ceremony anywhere in the UK or Spain, and loving to travel as I do, I am happy to travel anywhere further afield.
Thank you for sending through the copy of the service and the recording. The service was lovely and even exceded expectations. You did a wonderful job, thank you so much.

Thank you so much for the lovely service and the recording. That has meant so much to me as I can send it to those who could not attend the funeral. It was a lovely service and I was amazed at how you managed to capture his personality without knowing him. Everyone was really impressed. Thank you very much.

Why Choose Wendy
Why should you choose me? Well here are a few facts about me that may help you to decide!
I am used to working for busy people who are short on time! My favourite thing to do is read, I love words and languages. I can chat for hours and love to dance - even when there is no music. My best ideas come to me in the shower which is frustrating as the water makes the note paper soggy! My most guilty pleasure is a pot of tea in bed with a good book on a Sunday morning, Darjeeling or Oolong in a China Teapot poured into a bone china cup and saucer - you get the picture. I have a vivid imagination, a sharp sense of humour and my favourite tipple is Champagne if that is not available I love a good Gin.
I think I have a fabulous voice when I sing and my husband tells me I could have been a professional (pub closer at last orders!).
With me as your Celebrant I will arrive early on the day to ensure all is as it should be. I only officiate at one wedding a month in order to give you my undivided attention, so if you are a little late on the day, with me, that's how it should be!
With me as your celebrant you get my creativity, my passion and my love of writing ceremonies and telling stories, if you would like a no obligation chat, use the contact form and lets set a time and date.
