"Manchester, a city that thinks a table is for dancing on! "- Mark Radcliffe
My name is Leanne Gateley and I'm one of Manchester's leading celebrants.
In Manchester, we are very proud of our history, our rebel spirit and the fact that we like do things differently here. So as 'The Manchester Celebrant', making your wedding or celebration something truly special is what I do best!
Life is too short for the mundane and your day should be as wonderful as the photos you see on Pinterest, it should be all about you, your personality, your style and the way you like to live your life.
I'm based in Manchester and Salford but I conduct ceremonies right across the northwest of England and neighbouring regions. I am also happy to discuss travelling further afield and overseas.
The quotes in the gallery below are all recent - relating to weddings, naming ceremonies and funerals from 2019 and 2020. (all shared with a kind permission!)
“Thanks for the lovely service, felt like the balance of nana’s character and the legacy she leaves us with was just right”
“I'm so pleased that we chose you, nobody could have done it better, I've been inundated with people saying how lovely the service was! "
“Your warmth and smile captures hearts”
“ Leanne you are simply the best! Love your use of words – so creative, forever thankful!”
“Your ceremony was beautifully warm and engaging, you told their story beautifully”
“You brought a tear to my eye, but lovely at the same time”
