Charlotte Simpson Ceremonies

 

 

I'm an independent celebrant. I help couples, across the north west and beyond, to make their wedding ceremony a highlight of their big day. I help my couples invest in the experience.

Every ceremony I create is unique, written from scratch to reflect the couple getting married, my specialism is storytelling and creativity.

If you choose to have a celebrant wedding, there are no rules to restrict you in any way. If you choose me as your celebrant, we'll have fun as we plan and prepare your ceremony, and even more fun on your wedding day. Afterwards, you'll have memories of precious, unrepeatable moments that expressed what the two of you mean to each other in your own way; and - what's more - the fact that you'll have talked about what marriage means to you and personalised your vows, promises and hopes for your future together will be a big support to you in the years to come.

 
 
I love conducting outdoor ceremonies - especially those in wild and natural locations - and working with couples who want a simple, ecologically sound wedding.
 
 
 

Ethics


 

Business values: Excellence | Diversity | Kindness | Creativity | Honesty

Celebrants play an important role in our culture; we hold up people's relationships to be seen and celebrated in their families and communities. I take this responsibility seriously and I'm committed to providing a fully inclusive service that promotes equality, responsibility and compassion.

I'm a founder-member of LGBTQ Equality Weddings - an educational and campaigning organisation working to make the wedding industry more inclusive. I also take accessibility seriously; I work with families to make sure everyone present at their wedding is able to participate in their ceremony. I do so by finding ways to include speakers of other languages, children and vulnerable or disabled guests.

I use my business to support my local community, I've led storytelling workshops in schools and I don't charge for funeral ceremonies for anyone under 18. I also donate a third of my takings over the Christmas period to Help Refugees, a charity close to my heart. 

Being Eco - As a service-provider, I use very little in the way of materials. I work from home so I don't have a daily commute. Although I do need to drive to wedding venues and client meetings, I keep journeys to a minimum and I've recently invested in the smallest, lightest, most fuel efficient car I could afford! I don't participate in ceremony elements exploiting live animals (such as butterfly or dove releases) or rituals that harm the environment (such as balloon releases or Chinese lanterns). 

 
 
I most often work with couples who want a more relaxed, quirky, personal and entertaining ceremony.

Honest Praise


I cannot express how wonderfully you represented our lives... You found all the important pieces of our family story and ensured they were told with love, affection and good humour.
She is such a kind and caring lady and made sure she got to know as much as possible about the bride and groom, and all the family - the ceremony was a perfect mix of personal, serious and very funny.
She has a tone that everyone warms too, an extraordinary ability to help relay the important details as well as a manner that reassures you you are in safe hands.
