Hey! I’m Glenn! I create and deliver bespoke wedding ceremonies which are ALWAYS fun and super relaxed. I'm based in The North West, although I have friends and family all around the UK (and abroad in fact) so I have lots of opportunity to travel around to ceremonies everywhere.
So why use a celebrant? Why wouldn’t you?!
There are so many reasons to be honest! It'll be the BIG DAY that everyone talks about. I use my creativity and experience to make your special day turn out exactly how you want it.
There really are no restrictions for what we can put into your ceremony. Basically...it ain't going to be boring! I am SO over people thinking that the ceremony is “THE BORING BIT”.
WRONG! I really pride myself on making every ceremony unique, full of laughter, getting everybody involved and overall having the best time they possibly can!
I'm Glenn! Dog dad, boyfriend extraordinaire (my words), part time vegetarian and avid watcher of old-school Hollywood musicals.
Performance was always in my bones from being a kid, and I went on to train in professional dance and musical theatre. Fun fact, I was actually one of the final 5 kids in the auditions to play Harry Potter in the films.
When I graduated I jumped on a plane to Mallorca, where I spent the next 6 years of my life as head of entertainment for a chain of hotels, hosting full daytime and evening entertainment to up to 2000 brits at times. I loved it.
I'm not married (not yet at least, but that's a story for another time) but I'm possibly the last of my friendship group to not be. So it's safe to say I've been to my fair share of weddings, naming ceremonies/christenings and such like prior to becoming a celebrant.
How I Became That Celebrant Guy
Things took a bit of a turn for me when a friend (who did her research, good gal!) spoke to me about her wedding. She was going to get married legally by a registrar a few weeks prior, but wanted her ceremony to be more personal, and (upon seeing me most years hosting on her family holiday) would I deliver it for her. ABSOLUTELY! So...that happened, and I guess from there it just spiralled into who I am today. Her friend asked her who 'That Celebrant Guy' was that did her wedding and would she pass on my details. Then that wedding happened, and another after that and suddenly 'That Celebrant Guy' just stuck!
I love what I do. Simple. I love getting to know people. I love learning about you! Your personalities, hobbies, interests, everything that makes you tick and precisely what makes you the incredible people you are.
That's what makes my ceremonies so personal, that I have a real genuine interest in you.
I can promise you, hand on heart, that any ceremony by me...'That Celebrant Guy'...or Glenn, whichever you prefer...will be unique, personal and AMAZING. With LOADS of fun and laughter along the way!
