I’m a hopeless romantic and simply love a celebration

And weddings are a celebration of love.


I’m Frances but everyone calls me Fan

It is so important that you have a real rapport and connection with your wedding celebrant so let me tell you a little bit about me.

I am an experienced and sought after wedding celebrant and have presented ceremonies in many of the west country’s most prestigious high end venues as well as some beautiful family gardens and farms across the UK.

I love being a wedding celebrant

Prior to becoming a wedding celebrant for over 20 years my husband and I ran a marquee and event hire business supplying tents, furniture and tableware for weddings and parties. So I have been in the industry a little while.

With this background and my genuine interest in getting to know people and love of storytelling I don’t feel being a wedding celebrant so much as a job but a vocation. I absolutely love it and feel honoured and privileged to be playing such an important role in such a momentous life event.


Great  Stories


Moments to Remember

I would be so thrilled to work with you to create a wedding ceremony that not only will you love but will also enchant, enthral and amaze your guests.  With a celebrant led ceremony the notion that a civil ceremony has to be generic and templated can finally be brought to an end.      Your ceremony will be unique and bespoke with your story at the heart of it.

I really care about creating a moment that will last a lifetime both for yourselves and all your families and friends.

Dance, Animals, food, shopping, friends

Apart from my job as a celebrant I love to dance, swim in the sea, picnic on the beach and walk my black labrador, Prudence. I love good food and wine and going to London to see the children and whilst there try to go to the theatre, grab an hour in the V & A and shop til I drop of course!

My friends tell me I’m warm, kind and generous and make them laugh. My couples have told me I’m fun, relaxed and put them at ease and feel they have made a new friend which I consider a massive compliment.



I’m so excited to get to know you and hear your story.
Let’s get started on creating a truly awesome ceremony for you.

Nikki & Steve 4th May 2019, Sutton Barton, Axminster, Devon

Where to begin? Fan made our day exactly how we wanted it; laid back, funny and most importantly personal. Everyone said how amazing you were and how it was so different but one of the best ceremonies, and they could hear you at the back! You helped make our day so perfect! Will recommend you til the cows come home.

Dan & Juliet 28th May 2019, Huntsham Court, Devon

We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude for your role in making our wedding day so special. The ceremony was beautiful and it is a day that we will always remember.

Bex & Gavin, 17th March 2017, Huntsham Court

From our first meeting, to a boozy wine bar second catch up, to Huntsham meets and the day itself, Gavin and I were thrilled to have met Fan, and have her conduct our ceremony. The fun, love and emotion she helped create made it spectacular. We miss her already but glad to have made a friend for life and, of course, memories of our ceremony which will remain with us for life. A huge warm thank you Fan! You were fabulous!
