Let's Celebrate!

 Every ceremony starts with a love story.

It's Your Celebration!

Celebrating milestone moments with our closest friends & family is always special. But we don't all necessarily want to celebrate in the same way. That's great, I love different!

Hello, my name is Amanda & as an independent celebrant have the fabulous job of creating a ceremony that is right for you.

 Tell me your stories of love & life & I will weave them into YOUR perfect ceremony. Be prepared for plenty of laughter & bags of enthusiasm, from our initial meeting, to the writing & eventual celebration. 



Wedding, vow renewal, naming or funeral, whatever the occasion, it will be a ceremony created with LOVE & written just for you.

I love creating relaxed one of a kind ceremonies. It really is my dream job & since training in 2015 I have met some wonderful people, writing beautiful, memorable ceremonies for their special occasions from the South Coast to the Yorkshire Dales & the Lancashire countryside. 

Originally from Portsmouth, I live in Lancashire & cover the Ribble Valley & the North West. However, I still have roots on the South Coast & love to travel!

I have always loved writing & caught the bug for poetry after winning a competition when I was nine. As an adult I joined an amateur dramatic group & brought stories to life on the stage. Now the stories I love to write & tell are YOURS. 

I love to hear how you met, where you went on your first date? Was it a romantic proposal or was it a disaster! What sets your heart racing & what gets your blood boiling! Why did you choose that name for your baby & what are your happiest memories of a loved one? The answers are all part of your story & therefore an important part of any ceremony. 

Why Choose a Celebrant?

 A celebrant led ceremony gives you the CHOICE to celebrate how YOU want to. 

I will work with you to ensure your ceremony remains personal & true to you. You can be confident that come the big day it will be led by someone who has become a friend. 

There are no restrictions on content or timing, no copied scripts or multiple choice vows. 

As an independent celebrant I am not tied by any faith or belief system & I'm happy to include any symbolic elements to personalise the day. If its important to you then it's important to me! 

I only ever book one ceremony per day so I won't be delayed at another venue or be rushing off to another wedding! I'm all yours. 


The most exciting part is that by separating the legal registration from the celebration you can hold your ceremony almost anywhere! The venue does not have to be licensed. 

Once booked I'm there for you right up to the day of the ceremony & always arrive at least an hour before to check everything is OK & to greet your guests. 

Romantic, humorous, traditional, laid back & relaxed, fun filled & energetic or a bit of everything the CHOICE is yours. 


If this sounds like your kind of celebration then I'd love to hear from you. Get in touch & let's create something memorable.
