As an award-winning, best-selling author I'd be honoured to write and perform your ceremony for you

Your wedding will be one of the most emotional and magical moments of your life. It’s a chance to share your love with friends and family ? and celebrate your relationship in a way that’s special to you.

By asking me to write a bespoke ceremony and vows for you, you can choose whatever wording you prefer, and include details of how you met and what you love most about each other. As a professional writer and editor with over 25 years’ experience and three bestselling books to my name, I pride myself on writing very personal ceremonies that include meaningful rituals and readings to ensure your special occasion is every bit as unique as your relationship. I love working with same-sex couples, and couples of all faiths or none. My package also includes a rehearsal on the day of your wedding so that we can iron out any glitches before the actual ceremony (and as I'm also a highly qualified hypnotherapist, I can help calm any wedding-day nerves).

If you’re married by a celebrant rather than in a church, there’s no obligation to include religious references, and unlike a Humanist or registrar-conducted ceremony you’re free to include hymns or religious readings. What's more, as the ceremony isn’t legally binding, your venue doesn’t need to be licensed, so you can choose whatever beautiful location you prefer.

As a member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants, I conduct ceremonies in London, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Sussex within a one-hour drive of Croydon. I can also conduct ceremonies further afield and abroad: fees depend on the location and travelling time.

I'm a born romantic and am more in love with my husband now than I was when I married him 27 years ago, so do get in touch if you'd like to discuss how I can contribute to making your wedding ceremony a moving and memorable one.


I hold a Certificate in Marriage & Family Celebrancy from the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and a first-class BA English degree. I worked as a journalist on Cosmopolitan and Zest magazines and am Contributing Editor on Women’s Running magazine. I've had numerous articles published in the national press (The Independent, The Guardian, Prima, Psychologies & RED) and am an accomplished public speaker (Vitality Show, Be:FIT, The National Running Show).

Lisa devised a wonderful ceremony for our son Ollie's wedding to his Japanese bride Yuri. It was absolutely pitch-perfect for the occasion and was enjoyed even by those with a less secure command of English! Throughout the day I had so many people asking me about Gibran's The Prophet - I'm sure he'll have some new converts. Lisa made a huge contribution to a really great day.

We had a truly memorable wedding in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains just outside Marrakech and loved having Lisa as our celebrant. We wanted a small, intimate wedding but weren’t sure exactly what we should include, which is why we were delighted when Lisa came up with numerous suggestions. I’m from France and my husband is from Morocco and what we appreciated most was the way that Lisa researched different wedding traditions from both of our cultures for us to choose from. In the end our guests held white ribbons for me to cut as I walked down the aisle (an ancient tradition from Brittany) and we also chose a Ring Warming Ceremony and sprinkled Moroccan rose petals everywhere. Lisa also conducted a beautiful Sand Ceremony which involved mixing yellow sand from Brittany and red sand from the Moroccan desert in a beautiful glass bottle to represent the way our lives were now inseparable. Based on the information we’d given her, Lisa wrote our vows and a very personal and unique ceremony that included poems and music we’d selected. Our guests really enjoyed the magical and unforgettable ceremony Lisa prepared for us - it was even better than we imagined and Lisa made it very special. Lisa so obviously loves what she does and we were delighted to share our wedding day with her.

Thanks so much Marivon and Rashid for this lovely review. It was a privilege being flown out to Morocco to share your special day with you - thanks for making me feel so welcome and for taking such good care of me while I was there. I am so pleased that your wedding was even better than you imagined - you gave me so much wonderful material to work with that it was very easy to create a ceremony that reflected your relationship. Wishing you every happiness for the future. Lisa
