EXPERIENCE

Ready to celebrate? Whatever the ceremony, I promise to put YOUR story at the heart of the celebration, making sure it reflects you, your loves & likes, passions & personality.

I love nothing better than to sit down with you (& a great cup of coffee!) listen to your story & your ideas then with lots of love, laughter & a bit of sparkle weave that into your perfect ceremony. A ceremony that is as unique as you.

I have always loved writing & story telling so following redundancy took a leap of faith & embarked on my role as a celebrant. Since training in 2015 I have had an amazing time meeting wonderful people, creating memorable ceremonies from the South Coast to the Yorkshire Dales. I live in Lancashire but still have close links to my home city of Portsmouth & love to travel.

To be so close to a couple, literally & emotionally, as they exchange or renew their vows, parents as they welcome their new baby into the world or helping a family to celebrate the life of a loved one, is just the best thing & a real privilege.

Celebrants are not just ceremony writers we are story tellers. I would love to tell yours!

CEREMONY STYLE

I specialise in weddings, vow renewals, namings & funerals. It`s hard to define my style as every one I write is different. I`m quite a romantic & like to think I take tradition & shake it up a bit! There is always lots of laughter & energy (yes, even in my funerals) & a little bit of sparkle.

I love to include symbolic elements such as hand fasting, jumping the broom & candle lighting - it adds a little something extra & is always a visual treat for your guests. I like to include friends and family & have even had a singalong at one wedding! I love unusual venues & have never yet said " you can`t do that". It`s your celebration, your story & your choice.

I bring experience, ideas & bags of enthusiasm but you will always have the final say. It`s all about YOU.

The ceromony was perfect. Amanda listened carefully to what we had asked for and blended professionalism with natural warmth. Amanda's oratory was clear, sincere and well researched. Amanda brought a magic touch to the event both outside during the ceremony and inside at the reception. It was a perfect day.

Thank you so much. I`ll never forget your wild waterfall wedding and that despite the weather you were able to exchange your vows in your favourite place and in just the way you had dreamed of. x

Our Waterfall Wedding

Anna Johnston

Malham | October 2019

Amanda performed a heartfelt and beautiful ceremony for us at our dream location of Janet's Foss.
From start to finish Amanda's professionalism, passion and genuine love for what she does shone through.
A truly personalised ceremony full of love, laughter and gorgeous wording, we will never forget how much magic Amanda brought to our special day.
Nothing was too much, even with it being a wild rainy outdoor wedding in October!
Our three children were hugely included in the ceremony and Amanda even had them help make our hand fasting cord with her which was beyond special. It hangs proudly in our front room laced with memories and happiness.

We couldn't recommend Amanda enough, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her leading it.
Thank you Amanda!


What Amanda says...

Thank you so much Anna, it really was a very special day. The wild weather could not stop us marrying you in your dream location, we did it and I loved every moment.
love Amanda x

Country Wedding

Malham,North Yorkshire | October 2019

I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding in the Yorkshire Dales at the side of a beautiful waterfall. Amanda wrote an intimate and very personal ceremony that reflected the couple and their love of nature. There was a lot of love and laughter, cheering and clapping,a real celebration.
It was the second ceremony of Amandas l have been to and I thoroughly recommend her whatever the celebration.

A day to remember

Joanne Wills

York | April 2018

Amanda led the celebrations for the naming of my great-niece; creating a memorable and moving day. With candles and bubbles, Amanda was able to include four generations of the family and close friends in a very personal ceremony. Great family memories are made from days like these.


What Amanda says...

So glad you enjoyed it. To be able to include not just grandparents but great grandparents was very special ❤️

Best Wedding Ever

Dawn Arnold

Havant | May 2017

Having decided to get married we knew that we didn't want an ordinary church or registry office wedding. Amanda was brilliant and met up with us for a coffee and a chat where she gave us lots of helpful advice and guidance. With her help we managed to pull off a "secret wedding" at a family hog roast we put on for our family and friends. Amanda wrote our vows for us and they summed us up perfectly. It was a fantastic day and one we would get Amanda to do again in a heartbeat. You couldn't ask for a better celebrant.


What Amanda says...

Thank you so much,it was an amazing day. I still can't believe we managed to keep it a secret right up to the minute you appeared in your gorgeous gown. Even then some people weren't quite sure what was happening! ❤️

Wedding Celebrant

Holly Lansom

Spring Cottage, Rivington | May 2018

From the moment we met Amanda we knew we wanted her to be our wedding celebrant. She made us feel at ease from our first meeting with her and loved that she spent time getting to know us, our journey and vision for the wedding. Because of this, the ceremony was personal to us and incorporated everything we wanted - it was filled with love and laughter. We would highly recommend contacting Amanda if you are considering her celebrant service and want something personal to you.


What Amanda says...

Thank you so much Holly, it was fun working with you and Bruce to create such a fabulous ceremony. It was quite a day! The steel band was amazing ❤️
