I'm Connie and I create knock-out wedding ceremonies full of belly laughs and emotional sucker punches. Together, we can get your day off to the best start with a ceremony you'll remember forever.


Can we have our ceremony anywhere?

Yes! One of the many benefits of a celebrant-led ceremony is that there are no restrictions, so you can get married anywhere and at any time. On the beach at sunrise? Yes please. Midday in your parents' back garden. Definitely. Twilight in the woods? Absolutely. Sunset on top of a hill? I'll grab my hiking boots.

We want to include a symbolic ritual or a unity ceremony. Can we do this?

Absolutely! There are so many ways to make your ceremony personal to you, and a great way to do this is to include a symbolic unity ceremony. You can literally "tie the knot" with a handfasting, you could jump the broom, do a sand blending or a unity candle ceremony, or you could even include a cocktail mixing ceremony. The possibilities are endless here, and your creativty is the limit. I have loads of ideas I can share with you wen we plan your ceremony together.

Is a celebrant-led ceremony legally binding?

Not at the moment, but there are people working very hard to try and change this. Currently, couples need to go to the register office (people usually do this in the week before their ceremony with me) and do the legal bit. This costs £50-£60, and involves saying two sentences and signing the paperwork. You can save all the meaningful elements such as ring and vow exchanges, symbolic elements, readings, music, etc, for your celebrant-led ceremony with all your family and friends.

How many ceremonies a day do you do?

Just yours! I only do one ceremony per day, which means you will have my full and undivided attention on your wedding day, and I won't be worrying about having to dash off to get to my next ceremony.

Will you travel for my wedding?

Definitely! I'm very portable and I'll go wherever a good love story takes me. I'm based in Manchester and Cheshire, and mainly conduct weddings in the North West, but I'll happily travel across the UK and beyond. Travel is included in my fee up to 40 miles from my home address, after which, travel is charged at 50p per mile.

Can we meet you before we book?

Of course! I always offer couples a completely free, no-obligation chat before you make any decisions. Depending on where you're based, we can either meet for a coffee or a drink, or we can have a natter via video call. This is so you can ask me any questions you might have, and to make sure that we're made for each other.


My husband and I are generally the type of people who dread services, ceremonies and any event which involves us being in front of a crowd. I can honestly say Connie was outstanding from start to finish. She managed to turn something I dread into a relaxed and enjoyable experience. She was engaged with us from the get go, and the ceremony was perfectly tailored to us and what we wanted. I cannot stress enough how fantastic Connie was and I only wish we could do it all again. We cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so much!

If you are contemplating booking Connie for your ceremony I would urge you to do it before she’s booked up! We didn’t even realise a celebrant led service was an option, until we were introduced to Connie through our ceremony venue, and we are so glad we were! Connie wrote a beautiful, personal ceremony, with both humour and emotion. She captured our journey to the point of marriage perfectly, we could not have asked for more. Our guests commented throughout the day how beautiful it was, and such a wonderful change from a standard service. Connie was responsive to any queries, not only in relation to our ceremony, but with regards to wedding planning in general! She has a wealth of knowledge, and connections to suppliers, which she was happy to share - she even checked photographer’s availability before recommending them to us! Connie truly went above and beyond, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.

Connie! Wow! I don’t know where to start. You’ve been absolutely freaking amazing, not only have you nailed every single detail of our ceremony but you have a fan base in all of us now, we all simply adore you; not only Andy and I (obvs) but our friends and family. You’ve had so much positive and adoring feedback from us all. I hope I’m not pushing it here but we’d really love to stay friends, you’re mint (as they say in Manchester)! We cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done, for your amazing superwoman abilities to multi-task like no other and to be a joy to be around, you’re addictive… we want more! It was absolutely perfect from start to finish. You were a star, our ceremony was so perfectly written and delivered, we couldn’t have hoped for a better celebrant. Thank you soo much!

Booking Connie for our wedding was the best thing we did. From meeting her for the first time to having a dance with her in the evening, we felt so at ease with her. The effort she goes to of getting to know couples really shows in her writing. We loved sharing our story with her. She managed to capture our relationship perfectly. We took her advice and wrote our own vows which I highly recommend. Every single one of our guests have commented on how great she was and how personal our wedding was. She is an incredibly warm person who brought the exact vibe we wanted to the day. She is the perfect balance of professional and fun! We also really appreciated her attention to detail and cool head on the day. Honestly can't recommend her enough. After being to a few celebrant weddings I can't understand why you would want a registrar! Book her, we promise you won't regret it. Thank you Connie for making our wedding perfect.

WOW! What can we say! Connie was just PERFECT for our wedding ceremony - she had exactly the vibe we were looking for - someone a little bit unique, open, funny and a master with words to complement our own unique ways and pull off the ceremony we wanted with wit and wonder! All of our guests have said how brilliant the ceremony was and completely different to anything they’d seen before. So HUGE thanks to Connie for suggesting we write our own vows and for embracing our 32 ribbon handfasting and our jump the broom finale! You were the perfect choice and we can’t recommend you highly enough!
