Wedding Celebrant in Surrey

Hello, my name is Karen Brown, and I am your  Family and Wedding Celebrant in Surrey  and surrounding counties covering as far as Norfolk and Suffolk .

I was born in Norwich in Norfolk, moved for my Nurse training and now live in Farnham Surrey with my Husband. We have been together a long time, have raised two beautiful children, both of whom have now left home and have had lots of fun and happy times together on our family journey.

My professional background has been for the past 40 years spent working in the NHS where I have met some of the most humbling of people along the way.

In a nutshell:
I am a very social and adventurous person.
I love the adventure of travel be it to Greece, here in the UK or somewhere else in the world.
I love to bake, kneading bread is just the best thing, it’s so cathartic.
Being outside in my garden is another hobby,
My greatest passion has to be musical theatre , I love it and ,along with watching live music is without doubt my favourite of experiences. As a family we especially love the Rolling Stones, but I will listen to most genres of music from a bit of disco through to opera. I have an eclectic playlist.
My colour palette is Spring.
Blue and orange are my favourite colours and I love liquorice allsorts.

My journey to being a celebrant came a few years ago, when I attended the wedding of a friend’s daughter and there fell in love with the idea of writing and delivering personal ceremonies. The uniqueness, compassion and creativity from the celebrant inspired me that day. Pushed along by friends I started the online course but something called the pandemic got in the way and having to focus on a few other pretty important things I was sadly forced to stop.

Several years later fast forward to another wedding which sadly was not so inspiring and I reignited the passion and I am now delighted to have completed my training.

So why choose me?

I am hugely empathetic, caring supportive and thoughtful.

I am confident at connecting with people on a personal level, making every element of your ceremony a unique and cherished experience. I am calm and can support you to feel safe but excited about your ceremony leaving lasting memories for you to treasure.

Whether it’s a wedding, recommitting vows or an intimate naming ceremony, I want to hear all of your ideas – no matter how big or small they may seem - and help make them a reality. Your story is unique and your ceremony should be too.

After an initial conversation to make sure you’re happy with my approach, we’ll work together to add a special sprinkle of magic to create your special day.

On the day, you can leave that everything to me, as I’ll lead a ceremony with heart and humour which means you can relax and enjoy!
