Amanda Leeson Celebrant

EXPERIENCE

Hello, I`m Amanda, a celebrant and passionate believer in choice. Whatever your reason for celebration, a wedding, vow renewal, naming or funeral, I believe it should reflect you, your personality, your style and your beliefs (or lack of!)
Originally from Portsmouth I have a background in sales and retail management and have also spent time as a brownie leader, amateur dramatics actor, primary school teaching assistant as well as wife, mum to two now grown up children and more recently a grandma. I have been an avid reader and writer since my school days, especially poetry.
Following redundancy a major change was needed and after receiving encouraging feedback from conducting my nephews naming ceremony I embarked on my journey as a celebrant. I completed my training with the wonderfully supportive Fellowship of Professional Celebrants in 2015 and since then have had an amazing time conducting ceremonies across England including a waterfall wedding in the Yorkshire Dales, a surprise garden wedding on the South Coast, a naming in a quirky cafe in York and a beautiful woodland burial in Lancashire not far form my home.
I love meeting people and consider it a privilege to be part of such special moments. I will work closely with you to ensure your ideas and wishes are woven into the perfect ceremony for YOU. I believe we have one shot at this thing called life and it should be celebrated in all it`s glory at every opportunity.

CEREMONY STYLE

I specialise in weddings, vow renewals, namings and funerals. It`s hard to define my style as every one I write is different. I`m quite a romantic and like to think I take tradition and shake it up a bit! There is always lots of laughter and energy (yes, even in my funerals) and a little bit of sparkle.
I love to include symbolic elements such as hand fasting, jumping the broom and candle lighting - it adds a little something extra and is always a visual treat for your guests. I like to include friends and family and have even had a singalong at one wedding! I love unusual venues and have never yet said " you can`t do that". It`s your celebration, your story and your choice.
I bring experience, ideas and bags of enthusiasm but the finished ceremony will always be what you have agreed on.

Country Wedding

Eric Ellery

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.

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.

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 ❤️
