Celebrants go by many names: Civil Celebrant, Wedding Celebrant, Funeral Celebrant, Family Celebrant, Life Story Celebrant, Independent Celebrant or simply Celebrant.  No matter what you call me, I am a Celebrant because I help you celebrate the occasions in life where you make precious memories or the occasions where you want to celebrate the memories you treasure.  A celebration with me can be a beautiful and moving event, even on the saddest of days.

I’m an experienced North Staffordshire Celebrant with 100’s of wonderful ceremonies under my belt.  I have helped the people of Stoke on Trent, Newcastle Under Lyme, The Staffordshire Moorlands, Stafford and beyond to celebrate the births, marriages and deaths of their loved ones and I’m proud to say I have a reputation for exceeding people’s expectations.

” Julia you made a day we were dreading one of celebration, love and laughter.  Everyone said you captured Dad’s personality perfectly and some asked if you were a family friend! We can’t thank you enough for your empathy and kindness, you may not have been before but you’re a family friend now.”   Jackie – Smallthorne.

Whatever the occasion, regardless of whether you want a non-religious, a semi religious, a spiritual ceremony or a personalised themed ceremony, I will strive to create a ceremony that meets your requirements and leaves you feeling that I personally care about every family and couple I work with.  

The personal touches I incorporated into your ceremony mean that it will be completely unique and tailor made just for you.   You have control and can be as involved as much as you wish in the creation of your perfect ceremony.

Before you trust me with one of the most important occasions in your life, maybe you’d like to know a bit more about me? 

I love helping people and have been employed in a number of public sector roles.  These jobs developed my passion for working ‘with’ people to achieve something positive and sometimes life changing.

My down to earth personality means that once you meet me you will feel comfortable in my company and confident in my ability to produce the perfect ceremony for you and your loved ones.  I love a good natter and enjoy getting to really know the people I work with, this all helps to make the ceremonies I write truly personal and unique.

I live in Stoke on Trent with my Stokie husband and our Dog.   During my years as a celebrant I’ve learnt so much about the history of the Potteries and surrounding areas, but I’m always keen to learn more.  When I’m not working I like to go out with family and friends, eating in pubs, going to comedy shows, walking in the great outdoors and travelling when I can.
