Hello, I’m Francesca. I’m an Essex wedding and funeral celebrant and I specialise in creating and performing elegant, bespoke ceremonies for modern couples and families.
I am based in Brentwood in Essex and work throughout the county as well as in London, Suffolk, Kent and beyond. I also love to travel, so I am available for destination weddings and have performed luxury wedding ceremonies in France and Colombia.
As a wedding and funeral celebrant, I am inspired by my clients’ lives and stories and work with you to create a personalised, timeless ceremony that is truly memorable to your guests and loved ones. Whether it’s a wedding, funeral, vow renewal, baby naming, or family union ceremony, all my bespoke ceremonies are heartfelt and unique to you.

I’ve had the privilege of performing wedding ceremonies from intimate back gardens to sprawling English country houses, to even appearing on television as a celebrant on the last three series of E4’s Married At First Sight. But what all of my wedding ceremonies have in common is my commitment to ensuring you have the best and most joyful celebration possible, completely the way you want it.
As a celebrant my style is elegant and classic but with a good dose of humour and fun thrown in as well. I love to get to know my clients throughout the planning process. So on your wedding day, I am performing your personalised, joyful ceremony with the same warmth and emotion as your loved ones surrounding you. I also offer suggestions on all aspects of your ceremony. These can include bespoke wedding vows, readings, and music choices, as well as symbols and rituals such as handfasting, ring warming and sand ceremonies. From group sing-a-longs, to guests taking tequila shots before the vows, to pet dogs as ring bearers I have been part of some truly memorable weddings and I love to make your dreams a reality.

As a funeral celebrant, my role is to honour the life of your loved one through a meaningful and heartfelt service that pays tribute to and celebrates their life, whilst acknowledging the loss of their loved ones.
I work with families to craft a service that really reflects their loved one and can offer advice on music and reading choices.

A vow renewal is a beautiful way to celebrate your love and relationship. I love to create meaningful, intimate vow renewal ceremonies that really celebrate all the milestones of your relationship and also what is to come. One of my favorite ceremonies was a surprise renewal of vows that a husband arranged for his wife to celebrate a milestone anniversary. It was in a beautiful country house hotel and she was surprised and delighted and was a more meaningful gift than any physical gift.

A baby naming or a family celebration is a beautiful way to welcome a new member into the family. They can happen anywhere. From a small, intimate ceremony in your home, to a larger celebration outdoors or in a hotel. Baby naming and family celebrations are a very special day that is joyous and full of hope.
