Paul Burnham-Allan


I’m Paul Burnham-Allan one of the busiest, award winning full time entertainers and now, newly qualified celebrants in the Canary Islands, so you can guarantee that your special day is in safe hands. 

Born in Yorkshire, bred in Scotland, most of my adult life working in London then moving to Spain in my 40’s, my work has taken me all over the world, meeting and working alongside all kinds of new and fabulous people.

After 40 years in every aspect of the entertainment industry, from West End musicals to having written and presented my own show for the BBC, making you and your partner the stars of your very own show is my absolute pleasure.


Depending on your preference, choose between either the suave, tailored, classic service with Paul Burnham-Allan or all the glitz, glamour and sheer fabulousness of The Contessa Guapatini, it is up to you.

Over two or three meetings we will get to know each other. Your likes, funny quirks and together we will plan and build the best and most bespoke ceremony that is totally tailored to you and your personalities in a fun, warm and engaging way.


I will write a ceremony that’s 100%  about you and your loved ones.


Together we will bring to life your beautiful story.

Inviting your friends and family to join you on the day to participate in special elements can make the day so much more memorable and inclusive.

We can find which elements best suit you, your friends and family.

Or a ring warming, where your friends and family all get the chance to bless your rings, sending you on you way with words of wisdom.

Of course, no ceremony would be complete without readings. These can include poetry, funny stories or anything that means something to you. 

Sand blending using colours that are symbolic of your personality or the finger print tree which can be framed and serve as a beautiful visual memory of your guests who came to share in your happy day. 


Whatever your celebrant requirements may be, you can be sure of the best of service at all times.
