Please mention Your North East Wedding when contacting wedding service providers.
After more than 20 years in the wedding industry as an events planner, Donna Hartley-Redfearn has been working hard to become qualified as a celebrant and has launched North East Wedding Celebrant to offer couples meaningful and personal ceremonies.
Donna says, "Being a celebrant has been a secret dream of mine and the lockdown gave me the opportunity to train to become one – I've never looked back." The company has a laid-back approach perfect for couples who crave something a little different on their wedding day. Donna adds, "Whether that be an eco-style ceremony in the forest, a modern ceremony in an urban warehouse or an intimate elopement on a mountainside – no two wedding ceremonies should be the same."

Six couples are taking their case to the High Court on 7-8 July to take a landmark challenge over the legal recognition of humanist marriages; their case is being supported by humanist celebrants. Siân Jackson a celebrant, based in Neath, Wales commented, "Humanist ceremonies bring meaning, personality and depth to a non-religious ceremony in a way which is just not possible within the construct of a civil ceremony. Why shouldn't non-religious couples have the right to celebrate their union in a way that is significant to them, as religious couples do?"
