On since 2020

Last update: February 2024

Covering the counties of: Leics, Lincs, Cambs, Northants, Notts, South Yorkshire and Rutland (to be honest, everywhere else as well!). I think of myself as a Wordsmith, the bringer of happy tears and laughter. The creator of a ceremony that reflects my couple's own unique love, beliefs, values and traditions.

I am the former owner and operator of a public speaking and presentation skills company. With this invaluable experience, I can help soothe your nerves and ensure that your wedding ceremony is exactly as you have imagined it.

My services to get you to your magical day

Support - constant support - composing, reviewing and leading you through your ceremony, from the very moment of that first Zoom chat, to the point when, after your ceremony, I can see you both laughing amongst your friends and family, drinking your champagne and posing for your wedding photos.

How do we get there?

  1. The first stop is an initial Zoom to say ’Hello’ and for you to assess if I am the person for you – no obligation. I, too, will be absorbing your characters, and the feel of what you are looking for regarding: audience participation, those missing, rituals, pets, music, readings (if you know any of those at the time of our chat).
  2. Approximately six (6) weeks prior to your ceremony I’ll start crafting and composing the script; finding a theme/story to link poems and readings with the mood of what we want to say. (As mentioned, I was a presentation skills trainer, so be confident that the content will be very special: thoughtful, profound, inclusive, sophisticated and fun.)
  3. We’ll Zoom again and you will hear the full script, including all readings, poems and rituals (if you have chosen any). Of course, you have final say on anything at all!
  4. I will finalise the script and follow up for any missing information. There will quite a few emails between us all.
  5. I will contact any ‘readers’ to have a chat and make them feel comfortable.
  6. A few days prior to the ceremony we will have the final Zoom. I won’t go through the exact script with you, as I want it to be ‘fresh’. I will go through the timeline, however, so you know what is coming up.
  7. I will produce the Wedding Certificate for signing (if you want to include one).
  8. I will produce the Order of Ceremony for chairs.
  9. If we are doing a Handfasting, I will produce the binding ribbons or rope.
  10. I will produce the text cards for promises and readings.
  11. I will be at the venue an hour beforehand to talk to the venue contact, photographer and the person looking after the music.
  12. And so we have the ceremony, all those months of waiting, absorbing those words of love between you both – and me somewhere in the middle of it!
  13. A few weeks later your signed certificate and the full text of the ceremony will be sent to you – sent with hugs from me.

REMEMBER: You don’t need to incorporate signing, rituals etc. if any of those are not for you. This is your day, your way..

Finally, I want you to know that I am renowned for providing ‘awe and delight’ to all occasions and this is very evident in my letters of appreciation. I would feel a failure if I failed to do so every time. From the moment the three of us say 'Hi' to when I leave your venue after the ceremony, I am totally focused on the importance and beauty of the occasion with adding own,special brand of 'Pamela'.Boring, sameness, I just don't do!

Pam is an utter gem, everyone should have her at their wedding

We are so lucky to have found Pam!

We got married legally in Australia and had a big party planned in the UK, but I still wanted to have some form of ceremony for people to witness. Pam is open to all ideas and after some back and forth (top notch communication) we settled on a hand tie ceremony so people could watch us 'tie the knot'. Pam really takes the times to get to know you as a couple and produces a wonderful script with included readings, jokes, lots of toasts and space for the FOB and Groom speeches.

Thank you so much Pam you really made our day and I would recommend you to anyone who is getting married. You all need to have Pam on your special day :)

Amazing Ceremony

Amazing from the start. Pam was the first celebrant I contacted and I knew I wanted her to conduct our wedding immediately. She was so friendly and full of lovely ideas for the ceremony and made us feel immediately at ease. She was always available to answer any queries, we had regular Zoom meetings and everything went perfect on the day. Thanks Pam, it wouldn’t have been the same without you x

Absolutely Fantastic! Amazing from Day one!

Pam was incredible and we couldn't have asked for a better celebrant. From day one you could tell how much she loves what she does and the energy and enthusiasm she provides is infectious. She was loved by all our friends and family... And our dog (who incidentally she also loved! 🐕‍🦺)
Thank you for all your hard work Pam, couldn't imagine the day without you leading the celebrations!

Magical and so much fun!

Well what can I say, Pam is purely fantastic and so full of energy! We had the most amazing experience with Pam from our first zoom call with her, to our ceremony on the day. We had so many laughs and wonderful moments we will cherish forever. Every single guest said how fabulous Pam was and it just felt like we had known her years...even our dog Dougie took a real shine to her!!! We wish we could do it all over again!
If you’re planning on getting ‘Hitched,’ look no further than the amazing Pam, you will not be disappointed.

Just wonderful service throughout

I couldn’t be more thank full to Pam, her service was just excellent from start to finish. Pam is such a lovely lady - cheerful, funny and so supportive. Pam made us feel at ease with reading our vows and promises which we were both nervous about. She also helped us to write them as we didn’t know where to start. Whenever I emailed Pam with any questions I had, she was quick to respond and helped us so much. Everyone at the ceremony commented on how amazing Pam was and I’m so thankful that I found her to do our ceremony.

What a relief we found her!

Pam put us totally at ease from the very beginning. She guided us through the whole thing - something I think I would have found highly stressful without her!
Plus, she's a hoot!
Thanks Pam!

The absolute best!!

I am not even sure where to start. From the moment we met Pam within a matter of seconds we knew she was the Celebrant we wanted for our special day. Every zoom session was filled with laughter and Pam worked really hard to get to know us, her script was perfect. All of our guests thought we had known Pam for years and that she was a close friend of ours. Which just shows how special she is at what she does.
We had the most wonderful day and Pam was a huge part of making it what it was. We couldn’t recommend Pam enough. If you want someone who is kind, warm, funny and really wants to get to know you to make your ceremony as special as possible then pick Pam. We absolutely love her.
Thanks so much again Pam xx

Highly professional and very personal

Pamela was brilliant - she gave us the ceremony we had dreamed of, personal, relevant and beautiful. Loads of fresh ideas and help with words of love for our vows.
Highly recommend this very personal service. Thank you Pam.

A truly beautiful Lady

My mum was taken into a hospice just recently and she missed out on my Sons big day due to covid. I found Pam and she helped make a small ceremony, the most beautiful I have ever seen.
My mum passed away a few days later, but her heart was fulfilled, by holding the couples rings and having ribbons from the ceremony, wrapped through her hands after her passing.
I can’t rate Pam enough, or thank her enough, for making that day extra special.
If you’re looking for a warm, caring, fun, yet 100% professional... Pam is worth her weight in gold.
