Alison the Celebrant

Not your "mum's friend" kind of celebrant

Hi, I’m Alison Pickel and I’m an authorised marriage celebrant. But I’m not your “mum’s friend” kind of celebrant. Rather, I’m a straight-talking, food-obsessed, Buffy fangirl who believes that making a decision to stick with your chosen person for life is pretty damn cool.

I’m not going to bang on for ages about how sacred and precious marriage is or what your wedding *should* be. Instead, I want to co-create a ceremony with you that celebrates the special brand of awesome that is unique to the two of you.

What I do


Tailored ceremonies

Ideas, I've got them – and they're all about you. Let's make sure your ceremony is as "you" as your fingerprint, because there is no one in the world like the two of you.


Organisation & support

Planning a wedding is a big job, but I'm here to make it easier with clear timelines, helpful guides and a hotline for all your left-field questions.

Professional yet personal

This is a BS-free zone. I won't ghost you or waste your time. But I will listen to all your needs to provide the best personalised service possible.

What I don't do



It's a wedding, not a lecture, so let's have some fun.

Me in action
