READY TO WRITE YOUR STORY
Hi, my name is Meg! I am a wedding celebrant based in the North East. I grew up in Barnard Castle and I now live in Darlington with my husband Tom. Welcome to the Meg Stanier: Independent Family Celebrant website!
I first discovered the world of family celebrancy in 2020 when my best friends asked if I would perform their wedding ceremony because of the limited guests allowed at their wedding. Of course, I said yes! What an honour it is, to be trusted with something so important to two people on one of the biggest days of their lives.
After meeting with them to discuss the ceremony and what they wished to include, I wrote their draft script, plus a personalised poem for one of their ceremony readings. During this time, I realised I loved the process of writing a ceremony and decided to do a bit more research into sector. This is when I came across UKSOC and their courses and realised I could potentially do this as a career. My course will be completed in December 2020, my services include weddings, commitment, vow renewals and naming ceremonies.
I am a people person- I enjoy talking to people from all different walks of life and having a good natter! So, I am really looking forward to meeting all my future clients and getting to know you all on a personal level so that I can write ceremonies with your personalities and interests in mind, all you need to do is be yourselves and I’ll do the rest!
In addition to this, I have added a ‘your journey’ poetry service which can be used as part of your ceremony. This bespoke poem will reveal to your guests your journey as a couple or as a family in a quirky way, no one else will have a poem like it because no story is the same. I can create these poems for any type of ceremony, so please let me know if you would like this included.
The great thing about planning your event these days is that there is no pressure to stick to a ‘norm’ anymore, you can completely make your day your own. From the venue, the theme and the ambience of your day- the possibilities really are endless- so why not try to make your dream day come true?
I have told you my story, so why not contact me and tell me yours! I will have my pen, in hand, ready to write.
Vow Renewal Celebrant
A Celebrant creates and conducts personalised wedding, naming, commitment, and renewal of vows ceremonies based on the preferences and desires of each couple/family. Couples who choose to have a celebrant lead ceremony will be treated to a unique experience, with every script being tailored to suit each couples personalities and wishes.
An independent celebrant will never use the same script twice, no prior templates shall be used when drafting and finalising your ceremony. All special elements listed under the wedding and naming ceremony sections of this website can also be adapted and altered to suit your theme and ideas.
A celebrant can perform a ceremony at any time or location, having a celebrant means you will have no boundaries for your special ceremony. Ceremonies are about those the ceremony is for. As celebrants, we are there to simply listen, write and tell your story. We are not bound to any religion or ideologies.
