Mary Richards is an independent celebrant conducting ceremonies across Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire and surrounding areas.
My background is in training & development but my most recent career was as a Deputy Superintendent Registrar for a County Council where I legally married couples as well as conducted other types of ceremonies. I have officiated at over 150 ceremonies and learned a lot about the issues facing the happy couple; from the perils of having a ‘big’ dress to dealing with animals at ceremonies. I loved the work but felt I could offer couples much more choice if I became a celebrant, so I did!
My job is to ensure that you celebrate the occasion in a way that is appropriate and comfortable for YOU. To do this I will listen, I will ask questions so I get to know how you think, how you tick and what’s important to you.
Armed with this information I will create your exclusive, truly personal ceremony that will let your personalities shine, express your feelings, show your support, unleash your humour or proclaim your undying love and devotion.
There is no rule book for YOUR ceremony; different, unusual, quirky and mad or traditional and time-honoured customs, what do YOU want?
