Louise Burns founded the Ceremony Company after nine successful years in the wedding business, and what a force of nature in the industry she has become! Louise is a celebrant, registrar and planner all in one, which is such a handy combination for planning the perfect ceremony. Not only can Louise legally marry you, taking away that common, extra detail that often comes along with a bespoke wedding, that being the visit to the civil office before or after the actual ceremony, but she knows the ins and outs of planning a ceremony as well, and can help you get a great sense of what to expect. A true professional.
Not merely just another celebrant based out of Lancashire, this is the one and only! All jokes aside, the Lancashire celebrant is a friendly, warm and engaging person with a real professional veneer. In their experience, a lot of people looking to get married in today’s generation are not as concerned with a legal marriage as they are with a ceremony of commitment. If this sounds like how you feel, then you can skip the trip to the civil registrar, and get suck straight in to the planning of the ceremony of your dreams with the Lancashire Celebrant.

A customised service that is very inclusive and very forward thinking, Unity Civil works with you and your family, regardless of gender, cultural and spiritual beliefs, or circumstance, with the ultimate goal of having a beautifully bespoke ceremony at the end of the process.

A well respected and much loved celebrant of gorgeous Humanist ceremonies, Kate Clarkson is a true professional with a warmth and kindness that befit her reputation for quality celebrancy. If you’re looking for an authentic humanist experience, you might have your eyes on a location for the ceremony that doesn’t suit well with the traditional wedding avenues. You might have a preference for a non religious nature to the content of the ceremony. There are many reasons to not want to have a traditional church wedding, it could be all of the above and more. Many folks these days are opting for the rising star of alternative schools of thought on marriage, the humanist ceremony. No less touching, in many cases perhaps more so, and most importantly can be as distinctly tailored to you as you want it to be.

Then, on the day, she is amazing with the crowd, leading them through a touching, heart warming ceremony that manages to be entertaining while also being endearing.
Shirley Gaston is a little known celebrant whose few testimonials speak volumes about how great she is to work with. A true professional with a winning smile and a charming energy while leading a group of people in ceremony. Leading up the event, Shirley will work with you in a series of intimate meetings, getting to know you and your story, and how to best arrange a ceremony around who you are. Sometimes this can mean an intimate backyard setting with rustic, alternative rituals such as tying knots and fasting hands. Sometimes this can include a massive, venue based affair, with elegant and extravagant trimmings. It’s all up to you, and Shirley will help make it happen.
