Hi, I'm Petra!

… and I’m a tree-loving, dog-friendly, nature-loving, heart-led celebrant so I’m passionate about quirky, outdoor ceremonies enriched with rituals and symbolism!

As a fun and friendly celebrant, an adoptive Mum and poet, I love connecting with families and couples (and their pets!) to help them embrace the storms and the sunshine of life, by creating personal, poetic and poignant ceremonies with the focus on hope, happiness and healing.

I’m based in Northwich, Cheshire and I love to get out and about so I conduct celebrant-led ceremonies in Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside (where I’m from!), Lancashire and Staffordshire, so please get in touch and let’s get creative together!

I am a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC) and I am covered by their public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

Please feel free to get in touch for a chat on 07845 990809 or email:

I’m available every day, except Christmas Day!

Choose Your Ceremony

Dog-friendly celebrant wedding ceremony

Choosing an independent celebrant to design, create and officiate your wedding or commitment ceremony will give you the freedom to hold your ceremony whenever, wherever and however you desire!

Funeral flowers

A bespoke funeral or celebration of life service led by a heart-led celebrant will give you the opportunity to say a fitting, meaningful and beautiful farewell to those you love.

Celebrant renewal of vows

Making your vows to the person you love is one of the most special things you will ever do… so why not do it all again with a bespoke renewal of vows ceremony?

Celebrant naming ceremony
Naming Ceremonies

Each new life is unique, and naming ceremonies offer such a magical way to celebrate this by welcoming children into their families and communities.

Celebrant adoption ceremony

As an adoptive parent myself, it’s an honour to now be able to offer adoption ceremonies to other parents who have shared this wonderful experience!

A fleeting adventure
Of colour and splendour.
Like life, like love
Like all we can hope for.

Heart-Led Celebrancy

In all of life and in every ceremony the bond of love is all encompassing, with the love of a new-born baby, the love of a life partner and the lasting love in our hearts when a loved one dies.

My training with Veronika Robinson of Heart-Led Ceremonies has led me to realise that being a heart-led celebrant is a service that can bring HOPE, HAPPINESS and HEALING for others.

As your heart-led celebrant in Cheshire, my aim is to open your mind to the endless creative possibilities of beginning, bonding and bereavement ceremonies that reflect your beliefs and values.

Petra was a fantastic celebrant. We found Petra’s profile online quite late in our celebration process. We contacted her and she responded promptly and arranged a video call. From our first conversation we could see she was organised, diligent and, most importantly, personable. Petra’s warm nature and her willingness to get involved (we did some sing-a-longs and had some surprises…) it was an amazing ceremony and one we will never forget. Many of our guests commented on the wonderful story Petra had put together about us for the ceremony and asked how long we had known her for. We really appreciated all the hard work she put in for us in a short period of time and would whole-heartedly recommend Petra to any of our friends or family.

– Mr & Mrs W

Petra was the celebrant for our daughter's naming day and we can’t imagine anyone doing a better job. She came to our house to learn about all about our family and our daughter's personality, likes and hobbies, before weaving it in to a brilliantly cohesive ceremony based around her favourite film. We had singing, dancing, poems and stories. It was brilliant and everyone loved it, especially the children. Petra is a fun, kind and thoughtful individual and we couldn’t recommend her more. Thank you!

– Tom & Kim

"Thank you so much for everything you did for us with respect to making Dad’s funeral so special. You have been absolutely wonderful right from the start to the finish and the Eulogy that you pulled together was amazing! The service could not have gone any better and a number of people commented on how good they thought you were!"

– Nick

"There are not enough superlatives to describe just how amazing Petra is at what she does. From our initial meeting…Petra’s professionalism and enthusiasm shone. She is simply wonderful and we could not recommend her highly enough."

– Mr & Mrs K

"Thank you so much for giving my Mum such a good send off, everybody was so impressed with the eulogy you so kindly did for her."

– Martin

"Petra created a truly beautiful and uplifting naming ceremony for our adopted daughter. She really got to know all about our daughter and the things that were important to us in our special story. She was extremely friendly and likeable. Thank you, Petra."

– Claire

"Thank you so much for the lovely, kind words for our Vow Renewal Ceremony. It couldn’t have been better written for us. Thanks once again."

– Mr & Mrs B
