Many congratulations on your forthcoming marriage and thank you for considering me to be your celebrant.
You are a unique couple with your own special love story and personalities and this deserves to be celebrated! Share your dreams for your perfect wedding day with me, and together we will create a memorable, joyful, wonderful, wedding ceremony for you and your guests to treasure. Don’t settle for the same old, same old – this is your day and you deserve to have it your way.
With an independent celebrant like me, your wedding ceremony is not restricted by any legal or religious limitations as to the format or wording, so you can be as unconventional or as traditional as you wish as you celebrate your love and commitment. You can choose from a wide variety of venues, indoors and out, forest or field, beach or barn, castle or cave! Special access to Stonehenge may also be arranged. I love to do wellies or bare feet as well as elegant. The world is really your oyster as far as venues are concerned as, though I am based in Cardiff, I serve the whole of the UK, Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, and the Americas.
There are almost infinite options for your unique ceremony, including entirely personalised vows - or none! We can use traditional elements of wedding ceremonies from any faith, mix them up, pick and choose, or create something entirely original all according to your own wishes.
Beautiful wedding rites from simpler days can be included such as hand fasting and tying the knot, as well as other ideas which I would be delighted to discuss - or even demonstrate if you wish! Children, parents, groomsmen and bridesmaids can be involved as much or as little as you want. New step-children can be celebrated. Absent friends or departed loved ones can be honoured.
Importantly, you get to approve every word and action of the ceremony beforehand – and we don’t stop fine-tuning until you tell me it’s perfect! Then I will bring my warmth, vibrancy and skill to infuse your wedding ceremony with all the love, beauty and meaning that the beginning of your married life deserves. I am skilled at weaving together all the ingredients you choose into a heart-felt ceremony that flows from beginning to end, touches everyone present, and exceeds your every expectation.
