It’s Not All About Me…

It's not all about me, but this bit is

Hi, I’m Michelle, (she / her).

It’s not all about me, but this bit is…

I’m based in North Essex, but originally hail from the Midlands and am proud to have retained some of the mother tongue (Brummie).

As well as being a multi award-winning celebrant I am also a celebrant trainer and mentor and I love sharing a good old love story with anyone who will listen.

My road to celebrancy began in 2011  when I started to explore the ‘after life’ ( life after working full time as a police officer…not the other one!) 

I knew I still wanted to be of service to people, but to do things my way, allowing folk to really indulge their passions and loves in a ceremony that truly represented them.

My husband wanted me to go and work with him as a wedding photographer, but I really knew my limits, and I know my talents lie in script writing and ceremony presentation!

‘Funky’ was born as a result, and when I fully embraced my fun loving, quirky, different, geeky and nerdy side I realised there are people just like me out there who want to express their inner nerd safely with like-minded people.

If you want to know more about me, because I certainly would love to know more about you and all of your plans for your special day, please do get in touch for a no obligation chat about how I work and what you can expect from working with me. I love hearing and talking all about your love, and as I will always keep telling you…it’s not all about me!

P.S. Another reason to get in touch is the fact that I have 3 gorgeous wiggle-butt pups, who would absolutely love to meet with you should you ever decide to book a vow writing workshop with me! We can even talk about including your own fur babies into your ceremony, because with me, nearly anything really does go! (I don’t get nakey or jump out of planes, other than that I can include pretty much anything…the world really is your oyster!)

I do not use AI when writing your ceremony, all of my scripts are built from scratch, and it all revolves around you… your story… your passions and your quirks. Telling your story is MY passion and it will be an epic retelling of love in all of its multifaceted and multicoloured glory.

What are you waiting for? Let’s talk and find out why it’s not all about me, but how it IS all about YOU and how we can work together to create your own kind of magic and bring the words off a page to life.

“Everyone commented on how amazing, personal, emotional and funny our ceremony was, and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.”

Funky Ceremonies for the Discerning Geek

I love colour, I love music… I love to get my robes and my wands or light sabre out.
I love my DM’s my petticoats and embracing my bright red ‘fro.
I love fantasy and fiction…
I love history, sustainability, my dogs, my humans, and exploring my own beliefs…

If you love these things too, then maybe… just maybe… I AM the right celebrant for you!

Vibrant and fun-loving ceremonies of all descriptions and for all the times of your life are my speciality.

Let’s let our imaginations take us to far off galaxies or magically hidden castles in Scotland as we weave your passions and fantasies into the ceremony you always dreamed of.
