Maxine Beech Ceremonies

Humanist weddings are a popular alternative to religious or civil wedding ceremonies, for couples who want their wedding to be personal and inclusive. These events are meaningful, public declarations that allow you to unite marriage wherever and however you choose without limitations (don’t worry; the legal paperwork is easily taken care of so that your marriage can have legal recognition).
You are not just booking someone to conduct your ceremony. I work with my couples for many months leading up to the wedding, advising, inspiring and helping them think outside the box, designing a wedding that is perfectly ‘them’. I write ceremonies that help couples say what they really mean, and deliver them in a warm, professional and enthusiastic manner. Often a humanist wedding will have people in stiches one minute, and tears of joy the next.

We will have shared many cups of tea, anecdotes and laughter before the big day, so we really get to know each other. I make sure all aspects of your ceremony are taken care of throughout the writing and drafting process, and on the day itself, so you can relax and enjoy the moment, knowing you are in safe, familiar hands. A wedding planner, master of ceremonies and officiant all in one!

Humanist ceremonies are certainly growing in popularity, but we’re not a recent ‘fad’. We’ve actually been providing non-religious wedding ceremonies for 120 years. Contact me to make your ceremony the most important and memorable part of your wedding day.

Wow Maxine the ceremony was completely perfect in every way – I think we both still feel like we’re in the clouds with it all – it still feels like a beautiful dream sequence and think you did a stupendous job. All of the guests were commenting that it’s the first wedding ceremony where they haven’t been bored but in turn, found themselves laughing and crying with joy throughout- yess!

We are so pleased that we met you. You made our day exactly as we wanted it- intimate and personal. You listened to us, made suggestions and made it into something far better than we could have done ourselves. Everyone commented that you were lovely!

The ceremony was perfect - just right for us and masterfully managed by you. We couldn't have put something like that together on our own and it wouldn't have been the same without you. It was the best day of our lives and you helped make it happen. Thank you.
