About Me

I am a wedding celebrant and mindfulness teacher working with couples to help them connect with and celebrate their big day in style. I am based in North Yorkshire but travel nationally and internationally to share the big day with my couples.

As an accredited independent celebrant, I have the privilege and pleasure of writing and performing wedding ceremonies for modern couples looking for a unique, meaningful, non-traditional celebrations. And as a mindfulness coach, I help brides-to-be learn simple habits that can help them stay calm and completely present on their wedding day.

It was a lifelong love of storytelling and romance that led to me becoming an accredited celebrant. I love stories, whether that’s reading or writing them, and have always been a sucker for a good romance. Nothing makes me happier than hearing or experiencing the love people have for one another, and how it found its way into the world. And when I say always, I mean always; from four consecutive summers play-running an imaginary wedding dress shop with my cousin in my grandma’s spare room to spending my teens and twenties singing at (real) weddings, I just think the energy and excitement of a wedding day is incomparable.

I am also the founder of Dotty & Bright a wellness brand celebrating calm, confident, connected brides which is on a mission to support brides with their mental wellbeing through expert guidance, tools and teaching. We encourage brides to practice self-care for the mind to pre-empt stress and overwhelm and allow them to be truly present on their big day and beyond.

CONTACT ME

Call me!

Please get in touch to book an initial chat and to make sure I’m the right celebrant for you! You’ll get the chance to ask any questions and we’ll get the chance to find out more about each other.

Book me!

If everything aligns you want to proceed and the date is available (I only ever do 1 wedding a day) I will ask you to book, sign a contract and pay a deposit to secure your date.

Tell me all!

Depending on how soon your ceremony is I will send you my personal ‘couples quiz to help me get to know you and your love story as well as possible – think of it a bit like your own personal ‘Mr & Mrs’! We will also discuss which elements you want incorporated into your ceremony, any readings, music, rituals etc and we’ll discuss how you’ll approach your vows. With your permission I will also speak to a couple of people close to you or directly in the wedding party to get all the inside info!

Trust me!

It’s then over to me to create your perfect wedding ceremony! I will be busy crating the perfect re-telling of your love story, your promises to each other and your commitments for the future. I will spend you a copy 6 weeks before the big day and give you chance to feedback and I will update and amend until it is perfect. I encourage couples to try and agree to the final script with at least 4 weeks to spare before the wedding – I want the words to feel fresh and really resonate with you on the day.

Walk towards me!

(Although you don’t have to if you don’t want an aisle – the choice is yours!) On the day I will arrive ahead of the wedding party to make sure I’ve got time to speak to the venue, the photographer and all members of the wedding party or those with a role in the wedding and then the ceremony begins….

Sound good? Contact me now to get started!
