Celebrant Services Offered
Hi I’m Ellie and I live in the West Midlands with my three teenagers; wedding photographer husband Rob, Jack Russell and numerous other pets.
I have always been interested in wedding customs and traditions. Long before I became a Celebrant, I worked within the weddings and celebrations industry. I love all kinds of weddings, but I’m particularly drawn to alternative weddings and ceremonies.
We wanted a Gothic inspired evening ceremony with our choice of readings, poems and music, but couldn't stray from the standard script at the register office and was unable to have an evening ceremony due legal restrictions. It was important to us that our ceremony was conducted by a like minded alternative person but this wasn't possible either.
I found out about Celebrants, and decided to train to become one. I specialise in working with alternative couples because as an alternative person myself, I understand how important it is to have a knowledge of different lifestyles, music and requirement. Through this I am able to help couples find suppliers for their special day and I love to try to guess what colour the Bride's gown will be, as they aren't always black.
Being part of a couple’s special day is a great honour and no two weddings are the same. I work with the couple to help them create a completely bespoke wedding ceremony regardless of their theme. Over the years, I have been involved with numerous Gothic, Steampunk, Rock n Roll, Pagan, themed, theatrical and alternative weddings. I also write and perform traditional ceremonies, namings and funerals.
I am the resident Celebrant for various historical places in Birmingham and I also travel to perform ceremonies all over the country. Whatever your requirements are I believe it is your day so define it your way.
