EXPERIENCE

I'm an award-winning creator of original and authentic ceremonies perfect for romantic and rebellious souls. Stand out from the crowd with a ceremony that speaks of your love.

Imagine it—total freedom.

Together we'll create something true to you, beautiful and real. Planning a ceremony is an incredible experience and I'll be with you every step of the way. I will be your source of knowledge to bounce ideas off and show you how to rip up the rule book, so you can have a ceremony that's truly unique and reflects your vibe and values.

Goodbye, bland and boring ceremonies.

I love, love. I love wine preferably red, the stories told by Charles Dickens and Wes Anderson the music of Leonard Cohen and Biggie Smalls and most of all I love real honest people.

Those rare gems who aren't afraid to do things their way. Those who don't follow trends, who love with all their soul. Those are my kind of people. Originality over ordinary forever!

I pride myself on bringing integrity and creativity to your ceremony, and I'll spend time getting to know you so I can make the perfect suggestions from content and music to sharing ideas for symbolic rituals.

You'll find me in the UK's best kept secret the North East of England with my husband Wesley and our wild Yorkshire Terrier, Betty. When we married in 2015 we chose a celebrant to help us celebrate our wedding by creating a bold and beautiful ceremony that reflected who we are. I've never been one to abide by the rules and working with our celebrant we didn't have to. Since then, I've been passionate about helping others to celebrate life events in a way that matters to them most.

So I trained as a professional celebrant with Civil Ceremonies Limited, to enhance my learning in the craft of creating epic ceremonies so that you get the very best.

Integrity and living in the moment is something I cherish and bring this in abundance to the creation of your original ceremony. I blend my background in luxury events and a BA Hons. Degree in English to give you an unforgettable ceremony. Never settle for anything that makes you feel ordinary!

CEREMONY STYLE

I was thrilled to win Best Wedding Celebrant at The Wedding Industry Awards for 2019 in Yorkshire and the North East. Thank you to all the amazing couples I've had the pleasure of working with, your votes and kind words mean the world to me.

My background is in fundraising, I've worked in the third sector for over a decade, raising millions for local charities. For over ten years, I've worked in a hospice, and this has taught me to appreciate moments, to be grateful and to live with integrity. I bring these values to every ceremony I create. I'm an expert relationship builder with a friendly and approachable style and have a wealth of experience in delivering events with impact.
During my career, I've managed several high profile, celebrity fundraising events, and I've proudly delivered above expectation by ensuring clients and guests received a VIP service. Going the extra mile is at the core of everything I do.
When I'm not writing a ceremony, you'll find me listening to music I love searching through vintage vinyl and going to festivals to discover new artists. One of my favourite quotes from Oscar Wilde is "You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear."
I'm at my happiest with a glass of red wine in my hand, listening to Leonard Cohen writing a ceremony with my dog Betty sat on my lap.

I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone for a special ceremony! She created a stunning naming ceremony for our daughter which was so magical and thoughtful! She is truly amazing at what she does whilst also being so approachable and lovely! Lisa listened and understood what my partner and I wanted for our daughters day and the final ceremony blew me away! We’ve had so many of our friends and family saying how lovely and engaging it was because they also felt apart of it. That’s what Lisa does so wonderfully! Thank you! X

From the moment we met Lisa we knew she was down to earth and invested to celebrate our relationship with us!
Reading our draft ceremony brought tears to my eyes and I couldn’t believe how much emotion it showed!
Lisa set a high for our day and we’ve had so many comments on just how personalised our ceremony was, it was like she knew us for years.
I would 100% recommend Lisa, she is professional, funny and so understanding.
Thank you for the most perfect ceremony

Mr and Mrs Staples

Healey Barn Northumberland | February 2019

Lisa's personal and unique style means she will adapt your day to really make your personalities stand out. Above all though Lisa will really connect with you to ensure she encapsulates exactly what you want. If you want ideas then Lisa is your lady she is full of them and these add to making your day so special. The main thing that drew me to Lisa was how individual her ceremonies are and all of our guests commented on this too. Alot of ceremonies can be predictable which is fine if you want that however if like us you want something no one has seen before then Lisa has it all. I'd recommend Lisa don't hesitate and give her a call.

Lisa led our wedding celebration this month and it was everything and more that I could have wished for.
She met with us twice to make sure she understood and captured the essence of who we are.
The words she used in her speech were so perfect and tailored wonderfully to myself and my husband.
We had a twist where my husband and I wrote each other’s vows and Lisa went along with it all perfectly.
Highly recommended and thank you so much for such a fun but loving service x
