Bespoke Poetry

Wedding Picture
cr: Emma Levy

A specially commissioned poem is the perfect gift for any occasion including weddings, birthdays, or maybe just to show somebody that you care.

When you commission a poem from me, you will receive an original and unparalleled memory for a loved one to cherish forever.

I like to use my unique tongue-in-cheek humour, and pride myself in making every poem individual to the client’s needs. Rather than go down the one-size fits all, overly sentimental route, I endeavour to make the pieces warm, funny and unlike anything you can get elsewhere.

Once you have ordered a poem, I will set up a phone conversation. The more details that you can provide me, the more information I can use to make it more personal to you.

Most of my custom written poems are 25 lines long (fitting an A4 piece of paper), but this is flexible and will depend on the amount of information that you give me/ what you are looking for.

There are three options available:

1. Email only – I write the poem, format it, and I email it across for you to print it out.

2. Print – your poem is printed onto special card and posted to you

3. Performed – your poem is performed live by me for the special person in question (this option includes the printed poem)

Quotes from happy customers:

“Cat wrote and performed a beautiful poem for our wedding ceremony and my wife and I still get dewy-eyed when we look at our framed copy, which has pride of place in our living room.  She Really captured us as a couple, a perfect and unique addition to our wedding service.”  R & K

“Cat’s canny ability to capture a moment, journey, and our unique personalities through words brought a heartwarming and humorous personal touch to our big day. Word treasure that we can keep forever to reconnect us to one of the best days of our lives, and to our journey together as a couple. A magical addition to our ceremony that had our guests in tears of both laughter and joy. Her poems are the perfect accompaniment to any of life’s special moments, bringing grit, warmth and humour to the occasion.” Z & K 

“The poem that Cat wrote and performed for us was the highlight of a very special day. We wanted something that would fit in with the relaxed theme of the day and didn’t want to do lots of formalised speeches, so when Cat performed for us, it gave all of our friends and family a very touching, funny and most of all personal insight into our journey so far. The framed copy also provides us with a beautiful reminder of what brought us together when we need reminded! An utterly unique and lifelong gift.” M & E
