Why choose Carolyn for your Quirky Wedding or Renewal of Vows?


I love helping couples celebrate the important moments in their lives. 

As a wedding celebrant, I would love to be with you in this amazing moment of your love story and be part of your fun wedding day celebrations.

I became a wedding celebrant for wedding ceremonies and renewal of vows ceremonies because I wanted to create unique, fun, unusual and beautiful events that couples, your family and close friends would talk about forever as the very best time they had at your wedding!

Whether you want a simple and intimate ceremony, or the full works, as a wedding celebrant I can help you plan your dream wedding ceremony and vow renewal ceremony celebrations.


Your  wedding and wedding vow renewal will be a reflection of your unique personalities and relationship. It will be a celebration of your past, present, and future. It will be a day you will never forget.

As your wedding celebrant I will craft your personalised story and then layer in your style and characters. There will be special touches and rituals that reflect your values and vision as a couple, that you will always remember. I will help you choose readings, poems and music too!

Here are some funny poem suggestions including a couple by me in this article 15 Funny Wedding Readings for Wedding Bells & Belly Laughs (

Please note that  wedding celebration led by a celebrant is a separate event from the legal marriage by a registrar.

You may ask how do I get married in a registry office UK? 


It is quite straightforward.  you will need to organise this directly with your local registrar at the wedding registry office via local council  to ensure you are legally married. 


You can ask for a Statutory Ceremony, which is often referred to as a 2+2,  or a simple ceremony and can be as quick as 10 minutes!


Make sure you plan your civil ceremony with the registrar in good time, and that you are both aware of the legal requirements of the registry office to book and give notice  of your legal marriage ceremony see here  for more information.


Don't forget either to make sure you have all the documents required to give notice of your marriage ceremony.  Often this is at a very reasonable cost  including your marriage certificate. Please check your registry office fees them directly. 

 In a Statutory Ceremony there are not necessarily any personal vows and the exchange of wedding rings is optional. You are then free to arrange your wedding celebrations with a celebrant of your choice in the venue of your choice.
