Ceremonies written with you in mind and delivered to make your day special
Everybody wants to have the “wedding of their dreams” and on most occasions everything is planned down to the last letter … except the content and the words of the ceremony.
This is where I come in.
At the heart of most weddings is the desire for partners to make a declaration to each other. It is an opportunity to declare your love and commitment publicly in front of the people who mean the most to you, your family and your friends. That is why it is so important that the ceremony and the words you say mean everything that you want them to.
Some couples want a ceremony that is very formal, some a ceremony that is very romantic, whilst others want something more relaxed.
Having your ceremony written and led by me as a Celebrant is what this is all about – making it everything you want it to be. There are so many different things you may want to include to make the ceremony personal to you.
Anita was really, really amazing with everything she did for us. She was accommodating and very professional. We are so happy with her service, she was 10 times better than what we had expected.
My family are Chinese and many do not speak, Anita even went above and beyond and presented some of the ceremony in Chinese! I didn't even know she could do that! My father was very impressed.
She really took care of us it's evident that this is more than just a job to her, you can see how much enthusiasm she has.
We met Anita at a wedding fair in Strawberry Hill, and she blew us away. We looked into several celebrants but no one had as much passion and drive. We are really glad we used Anita's services.
Anita, she is most definitely a 5 star rating, she was brilliant! She was just so accommodating. We met Anita when I was pregnant the year before we got married and she was such a lovely lady. The moment we saw her we got on straight away, she was very relaxed, warm, friendly and very open.
As we were planning our wedding a year in advance and neither of us had been married before, we were not sure what to expect, but Anita made us feel at ease.
During the year of finalising Anita was readily available. She would arrange to meet us halfway and was always on hand to phone us or email us answering any questions we had.
We chose to write our own vows, which Anita typed up and flowed into the ceremony, everything was in-cooperated beautifully. Anita spoke about my mine and my husbands life before we met, our story and included our son, it was a very personal service, it wasn't typical or stuffy, it truly reflected us. We did not want to go down the route of a church wedding and we found this was the best choice for us. We were able to share the celebration of our relationship with our family and friends, with an element of tradition.
To this day Anita remains a close friends of ours.
Anita was superb! I couldn't recommend her more. From the moment we met, with the initial consultation through to putting together the ceremony she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She gives you loads of information to plan the ceremony, lots of examples of vows that gets you thinking. The process is so easy, you can do as much or as little as you like and add your personal touch. She was very available and she came to our rehearsal the night before, despite the long journey. She was just great. We had a wonderful ceremony. She puts a lot of work into what she does, I would not hesitate to recommend her.
