Based in Shropshire, Penny will travel to work with you for your special occasion. Whether it be your wedding, hand fasting, baby naming, special anniversary celebration, or the funeral of your loved one.

Penny has worked as a Registrar of Births Deaths and Marriages for some 10 years, conducting many weddings in a variety of venues.  As well as helping you to develop a bespoke wedding ceremony for your special day,  she can also advise and help with the legal requirements of your Marriage. She has a wide experience of working with people from a variety of backgrounds. A theme throughout her career has been to recognise the diverse nature of our communities and to ensure that each individual persons need is met.

“What is most important to me is that the ceremonies I write and deliver reflect the person whose life or lives we are celebrating. I know I have got it right when I am asked,  ‘did you know him then?’ Or ‘how did you meet the bride and groom?’  And those questions are so satisfying to hear”. Penny Thompson
