About me

Hi, I’m Nat, and I celebrate the joyous and the audacious.

Humanist weddings honour and uplift all of the most important things in life – that’s to say, being who you are, love and connection, fabulous style and even more fabulous celebrations…!

I have always been a humanist, and when me and my husband married a decade ago, our first thought was to have a humanist wedding ceremony. I trained to be a wedding celebrant because I wanted to help other couples feel as truly excited about their ceremony as I did. It was hands down the best part of our day! 

Nat, everyone was so obsessed with you - literally like who the hell was that comedian legend!- & how beautifully you told our story & got everyone crying...


The infinite variety of a humanist wedding ceremony

I have written ceremonies with musical premieres, original poems, communal singalongs, secret collaborations with friends and family, communal shots, surprise choirs, brass band flashmobs, a coin toss to decide on a shared surname, and even a casual Rick-Roll

– the possibilities for your unique ceremony are endless. I have only one rule: if something is authentically 100% “YOU”, it must and will be included!

Words matter, and what you say and hear in your wedding ceremony matters. It is my job to read you like a card sharp, hear all about your stories and glories, and curate a ceremony for you that is like no other.

The multi-award-winning humanist wedding celebrant with a musical twist

 In my former life as a contemporary music specialist soprano, I sang opera and theatre works at the highest level for decades, and that wealth of experience in performance and improvisation taught me how important and precious the present moment is. And what is a wedding but the ultimate communal celebration of the present moment? With my musician head on, I can advise like a pro on song and musician choices, project with ease in an outdoor ceremony for two hundred and fifty people, and  – although I’ve not been asked yet – I would very happily sing your ring vows for you…!

In 2022, I was awarded the title UK Industry Star at the RSVP Club Awards. These awards are voted for by the most highly-respected global industry professionals, most of whom have been working in boundary-breaking high-end weddings and events for decades. I was also recently awarded Best International Innovator in The Loverly List, 2024. This List received over forty thousand nominations worldwide, and it took Loverly months of research to search out, in their words, “the best of the best”.

I am very proud of the gold standard service I provide for my couples, which is a combination of my training, my extensive experience, and my unique creative vision. Having that work recognised both in the UK and globally is a huge honour.

Nat is love & sunshine in human form, & she will care for you, your partner, your story & your future. Nat makes magic, & it's because she is magic.



As you may have guessed by now, there are no register office limited templates here! Every element of your bespoke ceremony will come from meetings & discussion with you, and every word will showcase your unique relationship. Both the creation process and the ceremony itself will be unforgettable – exactly as it should be.

I don’t write your story.

You do that, every day.

I tell your story – in the way that is perfect for you – on that one day when you two are to be celebrated above all others.

Nat is made to be a wedding celebrant! She is full of energy, enthusiasm and pure LOVE.

We had so many compliments from guests who said it was the most entertaining and enjoyable ceremony they’d been to. We are eternally grateful, Nat – thank you so much!
