Hi, I'm Julia!

I am a Humanist Wedding Celebrant based in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire and the South-West, although I am happy to travel almost anywhere in the world to conduct a ceremony.

I absolutely love weddings, and I am lucky enough to spend my time helping wonderful couples create joyful wedding ceremonies which tell their love stories and which reflect their values and what is important to them.

Every wedding is as unique as the couple who are getting married and is individually hand-crafted to celebrate their happiness and love for one another.

I am a totally inclusive celebrant and I am delighted to write and conduct wedding ceremonies for everyone because, as far as I'm concerned, love is love!

So... What exactly is a Humanist wedding?

A humanist wedding is a non-religious celebration that is joyful, welcoming, inclusive, and tailored to you, entirely focusing on your love story and the things that are important to you as a couple.  

 I will spend time getting to know you so that, on the day, I can tell the story of your relationship in an authentic and meaningful way.


With a humanist ceremony you can write your own wedding vows and  you can include readings, poems, music, and any rituals you choose, such as handfasting, sand-blending, lighting a unity candle or anything else that you can think of.

We can include anyone you want to in your ceremony, including your family, friends, children or pets!

Unlike civil ceremonies, a humanist wedding can take place at any location which is meaningful to you, it does not have to take place at a licensed wedding venue.

A humanist wedding can be as long or as short as you want it to be, although generally they last between 20 and 40 minutes.

It is definitely not the same old "insert name here" wedding ceremony that you have seen so many times before.

It will probably be the most joyful, personal and meaningful wedding ceremony that you and your guests have ever been to!
