About Mary Richards - Celebrant
Ceremonies for weddings, civil partnerships, commitments, vow renewals, baby naming, and other life events can be written exclusively for you.
There is no rule book for your bespoke ceremony so whether you want unusual, quirky, and mad or traditional and time-honoured customs, you can have it. Whatever it is, whatever you want to do, however you want to feel, your unique ceremony will let you do it (as long as it’s not against the law of course!) and it can be where and when you want it too as there are no restrictions on place or time (you might have to get permission if you want to use a farmers field though), By the way, did you know that whatever venue you choose it does NOT need to be licensed for weddings, so this might save you a few pounds. You have many more choices with a celebrant: location, time, content, style, and more.
I now also offer a 'simple' ceremony option. Less content but still beautiful. Ask me for details
My job is to ensure that you celebrate the occasion in a way that is appropriate and comfortable for YOU. To do this I will listen, I will ask questions (loads) so I get to know how you think, how you tick. I will find out what is important to you, how you want to feel on the day and how you want your guests to feel. Armed with this information I will create your exclusive, truly personal ceremony that will let your personalities shine, express your feelings, show your support, unleash your humour, or proclaim your undying love and devotion.
As a Celebrant I can NOT legally marry you, so you need to do this with your local Register Office. Book an appointment (28 days-notice required) take two witnesses and say the legal words, sign, 15 minutes is all it takes! This can be done before or after your ceremony with me, I can discuss this with you in more detail
For couples who want something a bit different, something personal, or something fun; a ceremony to truly express themselves OR for those who want something simple and straightforward.
Our wedding ceremony
We cannot thank Mary enough, our ceremony was unique and beautiful in every way. Everyone was touched by it. The words were very moving and personal to us, we both she'd a few tears during the ceremony I think Everyone did.
Mary kept us well informed from the booking right up until the ceremony its self.
We cannot thank her enough for all she did for us, the ceremony was perfect and beautiful and we would highly recommend her ❤️
Once again thankyou for being a massive part of our beautiful day lots of love Lisa & Howard x
Was really relaxed and captured exactly what we wanted
Mary was awesome she captured everthing about us beautifully.
I cant recommend Mary enough. From start to finish she gave a first class service. Mary guided us all the way. Communication was great. All questions were answered. She went above and beyond to help solve a registrar issue.
We wanted a relaxed ceremony with humour and thats exactly what we got! All our guests commented on how blown away they were. We had the sand blending ceremony. It was lovely to have a keep sake.
Would definitely recommend.
