Hi, I'm Richard

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.

It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to be an intrinsic part of such an important event and I’m committed to working hard, giving you unlimited time and attention.

Based in Yorkshire I travel to venues all around the UK.

My training background in presentation skills, public speaking experience & 10 years as a professional singer, along with Supporting Artist experience in Films & TV, combine to make me uniquely placed to deliver your ceremony with professionalism, confidence and humour.

Personally, I spend my free time walking our two Cocker Spaniels, riding my treasured old Goldwing and practicing my rather poor culinary skills (despite winning Come Dine With Me a few years ago!)

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.

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.

Wedding | 06/17/2022 | Rushpool Hall

Richard is an absolute star! When we were looking for a celebrant who would host our wedding ceremony, we talked to a few different people but Richard really understood us and talked us through everything. He was not only an outstanding celebrant but a genuinely nice guy who helped us when planning our wedding and offered help when we wanted to write our own vows, even bringing a copy of them to the ceremony in case we forgot ours.
 
We just wanted to say that the ceremony he did for us was excellent! Every guest said how incredible it was and how perfectly it matched us.

If you need a celebrant, Richard is definitely a superstar and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Best wishes Amy & Dane. Rushpool Hall.

Wedding | 09/05/2022 | Scrivelsby Walled Garden

Firstly i just wanted to apologies for not getting to speak with you straight after the ceremony we were just whooshed away into a bubble of excitement. Onto my second point i wanted to thank you for doing such a fantastic job. 



Honestly all my guests afterwards were saying how brilliant and effortless the ceremony and vows ran and how welcoming and professional you were. 

You were just so at ease and in turn made both myself and Stephen at ease. I was smiling from ear to ear throughout and you just hit the nail on the head with every little detail and word we said thanks to you.

Also the poems where so touching and suited us both perfectly. As soon as our photos arrive we will be sending a much more warmer thanks your way. 



Warm wishes

Vow Renewal

5 Stars
Chris & Tamara

Wedding | 08/06/2022 | Lumley Castle

Richard was our celebrant for a vow renewal in Aug 2022, from the first time we engaged with him earlier in the year, until the day of the ceremony, he was so helpful, friendly and involved with our event.

He really took on board what we told him, to craft a custom ceremony that was tailored to us and felt so personal and heart felt. He helped us create custom vows that were so far above what we could have done alone and made them so special.

On the day he was warm, engaging, and everyone without fail loved his personality and style.
We couldn’t be happier with his work, and would highly recommend him if you are looking for a personal, friendly, and above all professional celebrant for your wedding.
