EXPERIENCE

Hello! and in those immortal words from the Truman show...'Good morning, and in case I don't see you good afternoon, good evening and goodnight'...
I hope you are having a great day and that your plans are starting to come together.
Now you're on the 'biggie'... finding the right celebrant for you...so....without further ado, let me tell you a little bit about myself...

I have been a celebrant since 2011, and can honestly say that I have found my true vocation!
I cover the East Anglian region and beyond, delivering fun, laughter filled (and obviously bespoke) ceremonies. From welcoming a new addition to the family, to the renewal of precious marriage vows...

For centuries humans around the world have been celebrating every right of passage with a ceremony.
Today every culture and religion has its own ritual, but now, for the first time in history, we find ourselves in a unique position of being able to choose a real alternative to the 'expected' or 'mundane' everyday ritual of our forebears.

I work with my couples and families as we create the perfect ceremony, incorporating everything from spiritual to religious beliefs if desired.
There is no restriction anymore, anything and anyone goes... and my passion shines through.

From our first face-to-face meeting, (or if distance is an issue, first Skype meeting) you will get to see the real me. I can honestly say that I am grinning as we start to discuss your requirements for your big day.
Most couples give me a blank canvas, but it doesn't take long for us chatting away to build a picture of the perfect ceremony.
From processional music ideas, to readings, to how you want to tell your other half just how much you love them...We build on this together!
I always conduct a practice for Wedding and Commitment Ceremonies, to ease nerves and discuss the choreography for the day, before delivering the ceremony in a fun, warm and inclusive way. (I even provide the tissues for your guests).
Every script is printed and gifted in a presentation box along with a certificate as a reminder of a wonderful day.

With a portable amp and mics (if required), I can play recorded music anywhere and will always be heard, even in the remotest of places.

I love a challenge, lets create something together that no one else has ever seen, lets celebrate your unique love in a way that it deserves. Lets make your guests talk about what a fantastic day they have just had for weeks to come. Lets celebrate LOVE!

CEREMONY STYLE

I like FUN!! You will always see me with the biggest cheesiest grin on my face as I conduct my ceremonies, simply because I am having fun...
Life is for living and loving and celebrating in all of its multifaceted and technicolour glory.
I have a very strong leaning towards earthy, outdoors, Paganesque type ceremonies and love to dress up to fit in with a theme (so far from Pagan to Steam Punk, with a little bit of Harry Potter thrown in! )
I have my own bucket list of the places and the types of ceremonies I would like to conduct, and maybe if you are thinking of something slightly more 'out there' I might just be the celebrant for you!

Not got a theme? That's fine! I'll be at the front, rocking one of my 50's retro dresses, with a bright petticoat, and funky DM's ...letting the love shine through.
There aren't many symbolic rituals that I haven't performed in a ceremony; it is after all your ceremony, your day, your way. If you can dream it, lets see if together we can make it a reality.

Honestly, we weren't sure when we first met Michelle that she "got us" and perhaps we all had different ideas on what it was we wanted, however, ... Read review.

Honestly, we weren't sure when we first met Michelle that she "got us" and perhaps we all had different ideas on what it was we wanted, however, believe in the process that Michelle follows! There is no doubt that by the end of it, all of our hopes and expectations were exceeded by Michelle - she was fabulous. Our ceremony was very personal and intimate and everybody was raving about it afterward. I would recommend Michelle to anybody who was thinking of getting married.


What Michelle says...

Thanks Terry, it was great fun helping you turn your thoughts and ideas into reality with a little bit of my magic sprinkled in! I'm so glad you trusted me to write and create the perfect ceremony for you. Enjoy married life!

Michelle stole our hearts when we attended a very close friend's wedding - where Michelle was the celebrant. My husband (now) and I were so blown away by the refreshing approach that Michelle demonstrated that we had to book her for our own ceremony there and then!
Michelle is unique. I have been to many weddings but have never as a guest felt as comfortable as I did at the wedding of our friends we watched her conduct.
Our own day will remain our best day of our lives, and this is all due to asking Michelle to not only conduct the ceremony but also to be our Mistress of Ceremony.
She cares and understands that a Wedding day is a special day and should be perfect.

She asked for information from both of us, and delivered the subsequent ceremony in such a way, that our friends say it's the best wedding they have ever been to.
The reason being, they knew what Michelle said on our wedding day was us. Not a boilerplate approach. IT WAS US!
Michelle highlighted a wedding ceremony didn't have to be a formality.
It is most importantly, what the couple want, what they communicate as being important AND what they may not think to ask!
Michelle is AMAZING.
If anyone can combine personally important parts of the ceremony, humour, getting the wedding attendants to be as fired up as they were, being a true friend in wanting to make our wedding day, our most special day, I will eat my hat and wedding suit
ALL of our friends and family that attended have echoed how much Michelle did to represent us.

Michelle was the first celebrant we contacted when we decided we wanted to mark our daughter's importance in our lives and first birthday. We didn't know what a celebrant really did but boy were we glad we visited her. Michelle was warm and friendly, listening to our wishes; we instantly knew she was the perfect choice and went away feeling even more excited about the event.
Michelle kept in touch in the lead up to our little one's Naming Day and kept us updated with the ceremony's progress.
On the day, the ceremony that was delivered was flawless, heart warming and personal, our family and friends have all mentioned how special it was to feel included in the whole thing and the warmth and spirit of Michelle was noted by all.
We have now an everlasting memory that can be looked upon with fondness. In finding a celebrant we didn't think we would find a friend.

Thank you Michelle.x


What Michelle says...

Thank you so much Danie, Ben & Imara, it was a pleasure working with you all as we created the perfect day.
We can't wait to see your little family grow xx

Where do I start...
Michelle is a highly professional, loving, bubbly, Happy soul.
We got married at Otley Hall, a beautiful venue.
Only We didn't want an average wedding, We wanted something fun, memorable and personal to us as a couple.
So we arranged to meet Michelle, discussed our ideas with her.
We told her we would like an Alice in Wonderland wedding.....
there was a long pause....
followed by....
"BRILLIANT"
A lot of personal touches went into the wedding, we as a couple had made most of the props and planned the decor and afternoon tea with an amazing Alice in wonderland wedding cake.
The ceremony was simply amazing.
We had personal vows, music played that meant so much to us.
A traditional hand tie ceremony, we jumped the broom, we wrote letters to one another and sealed them in a box with a bottle of wine, to be opened on our first anniversary.
In between all of this Michelle had made some beautiful words and verses along with personal touches. She just got us.
I thought I would crumble when my Dad was mentioned as I sadly lost him many years ago,but actually the opposite happened as Michele delivered a touching tribute to him and our relationship.
I can not recommend Michelle highly enough.
She is perfect for any ceremony, a perfect beacon of light that everyone will be drawn to.
She also has the most amazing wardrobe and colour matched our wedding with a gorgeous 1950's dress.
If you need a professional, happy, fun, inspirational celebrant then look no further, you've found her.

When we first decided to get married, we looked in the 'normal' venues and ceremonies as we had no idea how to go about organising a wedding. We luckily was offered the opportunity to get married in the parent in laws garden, so the next step was to find someone to do the ceremony. We started with good old google search, and came across a few celebrants. At this point we weren't completely sure what a celebrant was and what they did, after reading through Michelle's website, it was all very clear. I emailed Michelle that evening and had a reply in minutes!
After meeting a few times with Michelle and her husband Kevin (Head over Heels photography) we knew we had made the best decision for our big day.
The day went so well, and we have to thank Michelle and Kevin for this. They made the day perfect, Michelle went above and beyond with her help. We honestly can not thank you both enough, and we would highly recommend Michelle for any celebration.

Thank you

Michelle took the time to get to know us both and the end result was the ceremony of our dreams. It was creative, heartfelt, fun, meaningful and truly reflected us as a couple. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and our guests (even some of the most conventional ones!) commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. Thanks to Michelle, we now have the BEST memories of our wedding ceremony to treasure for a lifetime. I would recommend Michelle to anyone.
As the bride-to-be, I pretty much fell in love with Michelle the moment she opened her door and welcomed us with the warmest hello and a cracking cup of tea! My husband and I both knew that Michelle would deliver what we were both looking for – a fun, interesting and meaningful ceremony which reflected my (the bride’s) spiritual beliefs and more importantly; mine and my husband’s love for each other.

Thank you

It was such a wonderful day and you were fantastic, you really made the ceremony special and encapsulated exactly what we both wanted. Our friends and family loved the ceremony and thought you were brilliant.
Thank you so much, it would not have been the same without you and thanks for helping run around doing bits before it started!!!
