Hi, I'm Richard

“Richard brings a special personal touch from his very first meeting to the day of the wedding and after. I don’t know how he does it but he makes you feel like you’re his only client!”

Jaqui & David

Hello, I am delighted that you are considering me as your Celebrant.. It would be wonderful if you allowed me to work with you to create and deliver a completely unique, beautiful, and personalised ceremony that will be remembered for all the right reasons. It’ is a privilege to be given the opportunity to be an intrinsic part of such an important event in your life and I’m committed to working hard, giving you unlimited time and attention.

Passionate about my vocation, I work hard to ensure my clients can relax on the day and feel like they are in a safe pair of hands. My style is relaxed, informal but professional and fun.

What's my ceremony style?

Initially my priority is getting to know you so I can understand exactly what you want your ceremony to be like. Even if you are not sure yourselves!

I can offer lots of suggestions and after our initial meeting I’ll put together a draft ceremony for us to start with. My style is relaxed, informal but professional and fun.

My aim is to remove any anxieties you might have so you can concentrate on being excited about your day. During the ceremony I will look after, you leaving you free to simply enjoy the occasion.

My training background in presentation skills, public speaking experience and many years as a professional singer, along with background acting experience in Films & TV combine to make me uniquely placed to deliver your ceremony with professionalism, confidence and humour.

I am passionate about my role in your celebration and I look forward to getting to know you.

I get chosen by clients who are looking for a professional service but a down to earth, relaxed Celebrant, who is easy to talk to and passionate about their event.

My clients usually want a ceremony that’s informal whilst professional, and involves some fun! They want a Celebrant who will put them at ease from the first meeting and look after them throughout the ceremony.

The majority of my clients are looking for a lovely bespoke ceremony for their wedding, vow renewal, blessing or naming ceremony.

Dear Richard, we just wanted to let you know, now that the dust has settled, what a fabulous job you did for us on our wedding day. Everyone commented how lovely the ceremony was and you had just the right balance of making it relaxed yet an important occasion. It was lovely to get to know you and thank you for taking the time to find out all about us. It was a truly lovely way to start our dream day. Wishing you all the best in the future and I will recommend you to anyone who needs a Celebrant.

Richard,

It’s been such a hectic few days but I wanted to take the time to say thank you.
Thank you so much for making our wedding service so perfect. I’m only sorry i didn’t get a chance to talk much with you. I was in a bit of a daze.

You really were amazing and we can’t thank you enough
