About Me

Nice to meet you!

Kristina 16.jpg

I’m Kristina, a humanist celebrant based in Newtownards, Northern Ireland. After my husband and I got married in our own humanist ceremony in 2020, I knew I wanted to help other couples craft their own personal, unique weddings.

I'm not religious, and never really thought about it until I heard about humanism. When I looked into it, I realised that my values aligned pretty perfectly with the humanist worldview. It was lovely to learn there were other people in the world who held similar views to mine. 

Planning a wedding in the middle of a global pandemic brought a lot of challenges (!), but one thing we were certain about the whole time is that a humanist wedding was right for us. It gave us the freedom to have our ceremony our way, celebrating our relationship with our family and friends in a way that was meaningful and unique to us.​

When I'm not celebranting, I am a training officer for a local charity; this means that I’m organised but flexible, professional but dynamic, and always ready for the unexpected! I’m also a writer, so I can help you with the “wordy” bits of your ceremony, including poetry, readings, music, and any other personal additions you might like to include.

In my free time I love to bake, garden, and go on adventures with my husband and daughter. I also spend a lot of time curating Pinterest boards for my current obsession; previous topics have included French macarons, mermaid-themed bathrooms and, of course, my own wedding! I love to travel, and have lived in France and Spain, so if you're planning a wedding a bit further afield, or even just down the road, I'm happy to take a trip to make your day special.

About Me: About

Why Me?

I get it; making decisions about your wedding can be really stressful. You've lots of choices to make, and sometimes the options can be both exciting and overwhelming. I'm sure I'm not the first celebrant you've looked at, but I want to be the last! I can take the stress out of planning, and help you craft the ceremony of your dreams. 

Here's what I can offer as your wedding celebrant.

I'm accredited by Humanists UK, so you know I'm good at what I do! They don't let just anybody be a celebrant; I've undergone high-quality training and worked really hard to be the best I can be.

I'm ridiculously organised. Even the thought of being late gives me the shivers, and everything I do has to be colour-coded. You can rest easy knowing I have everything in hand.

I'm an experienced public speaker.  I've been a training facilitator for ten years, and spend my days speaking in front of crowds both large and small. I know public speaking can be stressful, so I will help you calm your own nerves on the big day!

I'm creative. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, then I'm your gal! I will help you explore options to make your day memorable and unique. There will be no copy-pasting on my watch!

You'll gain access to my carefully curated couple's area, where you'll find everything you need to craft your ideal ceremony. From samples to tips to organisational tools, you will have a ceremony treasure trove at your fingertips!

I will embrace your weird and wonderful. I love a wedding that showcases who you are as a couple, so if you want to walk down the aisle to the Imperial March instead of the Wedding March, have your dog as the ring-bearer, or break into a dance during your vows, I'll be cheering you on!

As well as all the "official" stuff:

I only perform one wedding per day, so you know you're getting my undivided attention

You'll get to meet my pets (and get lots of kisses, whether you want them or not!)

All our meetings will include cake

You want everything to be just right, and so do I! I will be just as obsessed with your wedding as you are.


If you would like to have a chat about what I can do for you, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!
