EXPERIENCE

Hello! I'm Charlotte. I'm so glad you've found my page and I would love to help you with whatever kind of ceremony it is that you're planning. 99% of my work as a celebrant is helping people show each other how much a particular person means to them. Whether I'm working on a wedding, a baby naming ceremony, a vow-renewal or a funeral, it's my job to help you to say what needs saying; to show what this moment means to you; to tell - one way or another - a love story. Your love story.

Whether you want your spine tingled and your tears jerked (that sounds a bit rude, doesn't it...? I didn't mean it to.) or something quirky and irreverent that doesn't take itself too seriously, your ceremony will be the perfect fit - just for you.

Now, although what I write for you will be all about your tastes and your ideas, of course you want to know a bit about me to find out if I'm the right celebrant for you.

Here’s my bio in a nutshell: I studied English at Cambridge - loved the course, spent loads of time writing and directing plays, sometimes slept when I shouldn’t have, often felt like a fish out of water.

Afterwards I taught street children in Ecuador and young offenders in Holloway Prison before settling down for a career as a BBC Radio Four producer.

I’ve always written - from plays and stories to poems and picture books - but the BBC gave me colleagues, fantastic experiences and a steady income!

After a career break to have my daughters, I somehow knew I’d be selling myself short if I went back to the BBC - just to do more of the same. I’d made some very interesting programmes but, as a celebrant, I make things that are beautiful.

I live in the cute little town of Bollington, in Cheshire, with my soulmate, David, our two little girls, Allegra and Stella, three cats, two gerbils and countless unfortunate invertebrates that my children imprison in glass jars until we discover and release them…

CEREMONY STYLE

A ceremony I create for you will be in your style, not mine. I’ll invest time in getting to know you so I can be sure you’ll love what I write for you. The more you can tell me about how you spend your time, what makes you smile and what drives you up the wall, the easier you make my job.

There’s no limit to the type of ceremony we can create together. As a former journalist, I’ll immerse myself in a subject until I’m (temporarily) an expert. I may never have seen Star Wars, but if you want a Star Wars baby naming ceremony, I’ll watch the lot and then give it to you with bells on. I’ll even dress as an Ewok if you want me to…

You’ll get a bit of a sense of my own style from my Instagram page. I love romance and soppiness but I also enjoy dry humour and a touch of high drama. I particularly love nature and animals so I'd be delighted to bless your llama sanctuary or ceremonially name your kittens. I’m also a sucker for a wild bohemian outdoor wedding in a forest or halfway up a mountain...

But, deep down, this is all about the people, the emotions and the words that are spoken so, whatever style of ceremony you’re after, if you like the look of me, the chances are I’ll really like you and that’s pretty much all we need to make the magic happen!

I can bring a light touch of spirituality or religious traditions to your ceremony but there is such beauty in the human love that almost all celebrant-led ceremonies are about, one way or another, that we can create something sublime from the here-and-now.

Kilnsey Park, Skipton | September 2019

On the 14th September 2019 Jake and I got married at Kilnsey Park Estate in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and we were lucky enough to have Charlotte as our wonderful celebrant. She wrote a ceremony script that captured our personalities, the journey of our relationship, our beliefs and values and she even created a beautifully bound booklet of the ceremony with our very own emblem. The space and ambience that Charlotte created for our spiritual and outdoor ceremony was sacred to us and everybody loved it. Thank you so much Charlotte. Love Anna and Jake xx


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much Jake and Anna. Your wedding was truly beautiful and I will never forget it. I wish you love and blessings for your married life together! Xxx

Just what we wanted

Stephanie Hughes

Llangollen | August 2019

Charlotte wrote a beautiful ceremony for my husband & I. As complete non-romantics with an ordinary 'back story', Charlotte had her work cut out for her. She took time to understand us & delivered a humorous yet warm ceremony that we, our friends & our family greatly enjoyed. Charlotte is professional & a great storyteller & we would not hesitate in recommending her for any ceremony.


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much, Steph and Andy - it was an absolute delight to work on your wedding and be part of such a beautiful day. Xxx

I would thoroughly recommend

Miranda Pender

Private garden, Eardisley, Herefordshire | August 2019

I recently attended a wedding anniversary celebration for which Charlotte devised a simple but beautifully-crafted ceremony. She had carefully researched all sorts of stories and anecdotes from the happy couple's life together, to produce a wonderfully humorous and moving event. I would thoroughly recommend her.


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so, so much for your kind comments, Miranda. It was a real pleasure to see you and Mark again after so many years and your music made a wonderful contribution to the event. Xx

She's the most amazing woman!!

Jennifer Bate

Lester Meadows | June 2019

Charlotte is just the most amazing woman!! She conducted our wedding ceremony & right from our first contact she put us completely at ease, even my wedding-phobic husband! She was full of warmth, humour & completely understood our vibe.
Our ceremony was totally personal & everyone has commented about how brilliant she was. There were plenty of laughs & I think a few teary eyes too... Can't thank her enough for all her help before & during the ceremony. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Charlotte, she's an absolute pleasure. Thank you!


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for your kind words, Jen. It was so much fun working on your wedding. I loved your whole approach to the day - it was all so chilled and personal and focussed on your guests. Your unity cocktail was awesome, as was - of course - Jan's horsebox bar. I wish you both so much love and happiness and good luck for your future together - and the wildest of adventures too! Xxx

Charlotte! You were amazing!

Lara Silverman and Shaun Richardson

The Wellbeing Farm, Bolton | July 2019

Charlotte! You were and are amazing! You blew us and everyone else away with how you planned and conducted the ceremony!

We can't stop talking about it and also our experience with you! You made the entire thing personal, romantic and just all over wonderful! People were commenting on how fantastic you and the ceremony were all night! A lot of the feedback was basically 'it was the most romantic, heartfelt ceremony we've seen! And just you and Shaun to a T'

I'm paraphrasing but something like that! Not far off really.

So again, thank you!!!!!

On top of being fantastic on the day, our all round experience with you was above and beyond.

You made us feel at ease and were able to cope and adapt to our personalities to help us come up with fantastic ideas for our crazy, feminist and unique ceremony. You made us feel calm in an incredibly stressful time and we cannot thank you or recommend you enough.

You are damn good at your job and other couples would be insanely lucky to have you shape their day!


What Charlotte says...

And the two of you were amazing too! You gave me the loveliest stories to work with and you were so honest and open with me - credit for your beautiful ceremony goes to the two of you and your gorgeous relationship. Thank you so much for the review though - it does make me very happy to know the ceremony hit the spot for you. Sending you both so much love. Xxx

What a special experience

David Holy

Belle Époque, Knutsford | March 2019

We booked Charlotte for our wedding ceremony and she massively exceeded expectations.

We live in Bangkok and were organising a wedding in the UK which isn’t the easiest thing to do. I’d randomly contacted a few celebrants on the web and Charlotte got immediately in touch via a text and we had a call the same night. She’s very down to earth and easy to talk to, after realising our ‘remote’ location issue she came up with a great solution and spent hours on 3 separate FaceTime sessions discussing the wedding and interviewing us. She then wrote the most incredible personal wedding story and vows and we did a couple of reviews before finalising, she also help us work out the right role for other family members throughout the day.

On top of this she personally called my mum to support her, and went to the venue together to do a reccy as we were not in the country.

Almost everyone who attended has commented about how amazing they thought Charlotte was, and my Grandmother has already decided she will be doing her funeral!

David


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for your lovely review, David. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Aum from start to finish and fabulous to meet your lovely friends and family too. I wish you both so much love and happiness for your married life together! Charlotte xx

Thank you!

Anne Holt

The Belle Epoque, Knutsford | March 2019

Charlotte thank you so very much for being such a kind and caring lady and a wonderful celebrant, you got the perfect balance of both serious and amusing. My son and his lovely new wife were thrilled, all our family and friends enjoyed the ceremony and thought you were brilliant. You definitely deserve to be the busiest celebrant in the area because no one would be disappointed. xx


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for your kind words, Anne. It was such a lovely day and a fabulous warm and responsive crowd of people to talk to! I'm so pleased you were all happy with the ceremony. Xx

Funeral for my brother

Fiona Letts

Stockport crematorium | March 2019

Charlotte conducted the funeral for my brother and the service she provided for the family was excellent. Charlotte spent several hours with the family, patiently listening to our stories, from which she wrote an accurate and moving eulogy which exactly met our requirements and hit just the right note. It was an extremely difficult time and Charlotte eased us through the process and made the funeral more bearable. I would not hesitate to recommend Charlotte.


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for your kind words, Fiona. It was a real pleasure to meet you and your family and to hear all about your brother's wonderful life. I'm so glad you were happy with the results. Sending you all the warmest of wishes. Charlotte x

My Dad's Funeral

Lauren Dodd

Macclesfield Cremotorium | December 2018

Before the passing of my dad, i never imagined ever having to arrange a funeral for a family member. Charlotte was recommended by our funeral director and i'm so glad she directed the service. Her calming and extremely professional approach made our family feel at ease and she really managed to capture my dads life and personality so well. I would absolutely recommend her and i am so thankful for all her help at such a hard time.


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this Lauren, especially at this difficult time. You and your family did a wonderful job of communicating to me what your dad was like and it was a real honour to be able to lead a service for him. Wishing you and your family a peaceful Christmas and a happier 2019. Xx

Wonderful

Marcus Dodd

Macclesfield Crematorium | December 2018

Charlotte was introduced to us through our funeral director. For somebody you've never met before to have to become such an important role in the funeral for a loved one must be extremely daunting, but Charlotte was so professional, kind and caring. She came to meet us instead of us having to go to her, she sat with us and asked some wonderful questions for us to answer which allowed her to build a very personal and touching tribute to my Dad on the day. She only had a week to prepare but you would have thought she'd had prepared a month in advance. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better celebrant to lead the funeral for my Dad.


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much for your kind words, Marcus. It can be daunting to step into a family's lives at such an emotional time but you and your family made my job so much easier because you were so open and communicative. Somehow you all very quickly made me understand what was so special about your dad and it was truly an honour to conduct a funeral for such a well-loved man. Wishing all of you a calm and peaceful Christmas and a happier 2019.

Thank you

Wendy Goldstraw

Heaton House Farm | November 2018

Charlotte was invaluable in pulling together the service for my late partner's Celebration of Life. She listened to our memories about her, asked questions to draw out personal anecdotes which made the service so much more than an overview of her life. My partner’s personality shone through, from the love we had shared, the care my partner gave to her family & friends and the lighter elements in her life. The overall sense of loss we all felt during the service was countered with the laughter and fun we had shared.

Numerous people have spoken to me in the days following the celebration service, praising Charlotte for the compassion in the words she had written, which hit the right tone for the delivery of what was a beautiful eulogy. Charlotte ensured the whole event went seamlessly, checking every detail with me to make sure it was correct and what I wanted. Nothing was too much trouble for her. I will be eternally grateful to Charlotte for her support during a very sad and heart-wrenching time. It made the whole process easier to bear.


What Charlotte says...

Wendy, it was a pleasure and an honour to be a part of the beautiful celebration ceremony we created for your beloved Maria. I came away genuinely overwhelmed by the impact she'd had on so many lives; on the tangible love that filled the room. I loved working on this celebration of life, because you were so open-minded and creative in how you wanted to do it. You brought together a big group of people to create something incredibly special - at such a difficult time - and I thank you most sincerely for your kind words about my part in it. Xx

Macclesfield | October 2018

Charlotte acted as celebrant at my Mother’s funeral last week. The care, time and attention that she devoted to crafting the eulogy and her sincere, caring and empathetic delivery really helped us through this sad time. Charlotte struck a perfect balance between a sad farewell and a genuine and loving celebration of a life well lived.

Thank you so much Charlotte for all your help and support at this difficult time.

Thank you Charlotte

Macclesfield Crematorium | October 2018

Thank you, Charlotte, for all of the genuine care and attention that you put into the recent memorial service for our mother. It was lovely to talk with you, and to share many of our most precious memories. We felt that you listened both attentively and sympathetically, and went on to create a touching as well as accurate tribute, that you read out so beautifully on the day – with expert input and a light touch. Truly, you helped make it much more of than a mournful occasion; instead, a celebration of life.

Fantastic job

Charlotte was the celebrant at my dads funeral she did a wonderful job of making the whole service special and everything we wanted to say was included in the eulogy in the way we wanted she did a fantastic job xxx


What Charlotte says...

Thank you so much, Lorna, for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to find out all about your lovely dad and to work with the three of you to create a really special send off for him. Xxx

Why Choose Charlotte

The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. It's the promises you make - whether they're in front of a hundred witnesses or just the one person they're meant for - that make a wedding more than just a party.

If you work with a skilled and creative celebrant, you can plan a ceremony that sets the tone for your whole wedding day. Bring your guests with you on a personal journey - whether it’s giggly and lighthearted or emotional and spellbinding - and all of those wedding planning tensions and stresses will just melt away.

You’ll feel more comfortable and relaxed than you could have imagined was possible and your guests (even the ones who you’re starting to wish you’d never invited) will be so caught up in it all that they’ll spend the rest of the day supercharged by the power of love!

If you give me the privilege of telling your story, I’ll put everything I’ve got into getting it just right. For all my ceremonies, my fee includes as many re-writes as it takes - I won’t stop working on your ceremony script until I know that you really love it.

I’m passionate about helping couples to get their wedding vows just right. The words you speak to each other on your wedding day will go with you both for the rest of your lives. You'll wear your vows deep under your skin. And there will be days to come when those words return to you - a quiet voice that whispers in your ear and shows you the path to tread together. So we’d better make sure those promises are just right - for you. I’ll take the time to get to know you both and help you to think about what you really want to say in your vows and your whole ceremony and how you want it to feel. When we’ve got it right, you’ll feel your wedding nerves float away.

If you’re on this page because you have a funeral or a memorial service to plan, I’m so sorry for the pain you must be in. I’d love to help you if I possibly can. Please contact me and we can talk. I’m always happy to try to help bereaved families find truly personal funeral ideas - with no obligation to book my services. I can also help you to plan your own funeral or to arrange ‘living funeral’ ceremonies, natural funerals or anything you’ve been thinking of that’s a bit different.

I’m truly passionate about the art of ceremony - of finding new, meaningful and heartfelt ways to celebrate the moments in our lives that matter the most. Even if there isn’t a name for the ceremony you have in mind, get in touch and we’ll find one!
