Hello. I’m Penny.

A Wedding Celebrant based in Northumberland

Hello I’m Penny a Wedding Celebrant based in Northumberland / Newcastle upon Tyne and covering The North East and beyond I officiate ceremonies but also personalise them specifically for those involved.

Choosing to have a Celebrant Wedding gives you the option too have a ceremony that is a little different.  You can highlight what is important to you without the restrictions or any prejudice of a standard ceremony.

There are no limitations in terms of content, format or style of a Wedding Ceremony, Renewal of Vows, Commitment Ceremony or Naming Ceremony, you can have your ceremony where you want; a venue does not have to be licensed when choosing a celebrant service. The only limit you may have is your own imagination!

If you are planning a ceremony in a Beautiful Barn, a stylish Stately Home a Gorgeous Garden, Blissful Beach or a place that holds a special place in your heart, I’d love to join you in planning your exclusive occasion and make your day memorable.

Getting to know your story and writing a pertinent script for the ceremony guarantees that your celebration is as exclusive as you are.

I am a member of The UK Society of Celebrants and this allows me the freedom to create truly bespoke ceremonies that can include religious and spiritual elements, if required unlike Humanist Celebrants, which do not permit to anything faith related.

Having previously run a Licensed Wedding Venue I’ve helped couples arrange their special day and have a good network of suppliers and contacts throughout the wedding industry.

Whether it’s your first to last ceremony, it would be a privilege and a pleasure to work with you.

About me

I’m Penny I live in the beautiful county of Northumberland with my two adopted Siamese Cats and pet Hare “Ridley”. 

I have always enjoyed working with people and being imaginative.  I started my career working in the hospitality industry then moved into sales. For nearly 20 years I worked as a Rehabilitation Officer with Blind and Partially Sighted people supporting them with everyday difficulties and problem solving.  I also delivered awareness training  to businesses, charities, educational and health departments.

I became particularly interested in Weddings when running an award winning B&B and Wedding Venue based in Northumberland. The interior design of the Georgian house and walled garden was great fun and a fantastic experience to let my “inner creative self” indulge somewhat.  I am still involved with the venue but have handed over the reigns to a new team.

Working with couples to arrange their special day was a real delight and building a good network of wedding industry businesses was a good insight into just what is out there, and there’s a lot!

I’d love to hear from you if you are looking for a celebrant to create a truly unique ceremony that includes everything you desire.
