Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

2024: £950


2025: £1000

I ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit at the point of booking, this secures your date in my diary. I ask for 40% at the time of the script writing (usually around 4-6 months before your wedding day) and the remaining 40% a month before your wedding day.

This includes:

  • Our initial meeting where we get to know each other.
  • My booking pack which includes packs on Readings, Symbolic Actions and Writing Your Own Vows. These are bursting with inspiration and examples and are a great help to get you started thinking all things ceremony.
  • My individual and couple’s questionnaires – a fabulous excuse for a date night and gets you feeling all the wedding feels.
  • Indeed I Do playlist of over 175 songs. Includes beautiful 60s rarities, passionate northern soul stompers, heartfelt indie classics and more. You might want to play on your date night answering your couple’s questionnaire, whilst your guests are waiting, on entrance to your ceremony or as your exit music.
  • Further catch-ups, in person, online and or on the phone. I love having a group WhatsApp going with all my couples so you know I’m always around (I’m fully obsessed couples sending me their wedding invites/ colour schemes etc. Anything you want to share or chat about, I’m so here for it!). I also love seeing your socials and following your lives if that’s your jam.
  • Any support you might want with things like writing your vows or what readings or poems to include. Your booking pack will have given you loads of ideas and  I’m here to help and guide you with anything you’re getting stuck on. 
  • Your beautiful bespoke wedding ceremony script.
  • Me delivering your ceremony. I will arrive in plenty of time, make sure all readers are prepped and ready. I only ever book one ceremony a day so you can be sure I’m all yours and I’m not on a strict timeline if things need re-jigging on the day.

Do you work with LGBTQI+ couples?

One of the reasons I chose to be a humanist celebrant is their inclusive outlook on the world. Humanist celebrants have been delivering LGBT ceremonies long before they were legally recognised. Love is love, always x

Will you travel?

I’m based in Hackney in East London so mainly work in and around London but am happy to travel. I also love a destination wedding and find it very hard to turn down gorgeous weddings abroad! Contact me for more on costs outside of London.

What is humanism?

Humanism believes in the goodness and morality of people, without the need for religion. Humanism is an understanding that we only have one life, and it should be lived to its fullest, with love, empathy and meaning.

Let’s grab life with both hands and make the special days go off with a bang.

We don’t have a clue what to include in our ceremony, can you help us?

Definitely! That’s what I’m here for. Your booking packs will get you started and then we will talk through all the elements of your ceremony. We will discuss  what you might want to include in your wedding and I’ll help you wheedle out the things that don’t feel very you. I will be as involved as you want, some couples come with ideas already and others just know they want more than a registry office ceremony.

Are humanist weddings legal?

Currently humanist weddings aren’t legal in England and Wales (they are in Scotland and N.Ireland). Things are looking very hopeful for them becoming legal in the next couple of years though. The Law Commission has published their report recommending a reform of current laws, to read more on this click here .

I feel confident that when Humanist wedding do become legal, they will become the most popular type of wedding, as is the case in Scotland.

In the meantime, this means you have to legal register your marriage as well. This can be as small as you want. Lots of people don’t exchange their rings and only have two witnesses at this point. This is just getting the legal stuff out the way. Your humanist wedding is where it’s at!

You can do all the legal stuff for around £70 depending on your area (if you’re a pair of Hackney hunnies it’s £116)

What will you wear to our wedding?

My wardrobe is mainly vintage/vintage-inspired or retro dresses. Let me know if you have a certain colour theme and I will try my best to fit into this. Equally, if there’s anything that you think could clash or wouldn’t look right just let me know.
