About Margaret

With over 20 years experience conducting ceremonies with the Registration Service, you and your ceremony will be in safe hands.

Margaret,
the Gower Celebrant

I love a wedding!  I love meeting people, hearing their stories.

I worked as a celebrant and registrar at Swansea Council for over 20 years, conducting ceremonies.  It was great, but I always felt I could offer more to couples.  I wanted to give them the time to make their ceremonies more personal, to allow them to have a wedding in a place that was important to them with a bespoke script, telling their story.

I am now a celebrant accredited to Humanists UK, so I can create a ceremony for you that is as unique and special as you are. I chose to be trained by Humanists UK as they offer a 5 star, comprehensive training programme, offer full support nationally and locally and ensure all celebrants keep up with their own personal development every year.

I have lived on Gower with my husband Martin for 22 years. I love walking, bird and wildlife watching and am often seen on the beaches and hills of Gower with my spaniel Pippin. 

I joined Humanist UK about 7 years ago, having first come across the concept at my mother’s funeral a few years before. Having taken the ‘Are you a Humanist?’ quiz on the Humanist UK website, I realised that’s what I had been for most of my adult life. Why not take a look here.

As a Humanist celebrant, I am committed to helping you create a personal, meaningful wedding that tells your story in a way that no other kind of wedding ceremony can.

Margaret is a real star and her warm, flexible way of listening, suggesting and organising meant that we arrived at the perfect wedding for us and our families. She has a very friendly, light touch with a good sense of humour and from the off I just knew our ceremony was in safe hands.

How does it work?

You may have been searching for a wedding celebrant in Swansea or you may be new to the idea of having a celebrant to conduct your bespoke wedding ceremony for you. Perhaps you are wondering how this works in comparison to the usual wedding routes you’ve looked into.

Let’s take a peek at how a typical lead up to a humanist wedding ceremony timeline looks, so that you can get a feel of how this type of celebration can be truly bespoke to you and your needs.
