Full Description
As a professional, qualified Celebrant I provide special, unique ceremonies that are lovingly put together through working with you and your partner and by learning what you want your ceremony to be. I can help with ideas for special spiritual elements, music, vows, readings and even create your own special symbolic action should you so wish. All ceremonies include a Certificate signing as part of the ceremony (not obligatory of course). Once you have agreed my services we will need a meeting which will probably last a couple of hours. I am always available on phone/skype and email. I am happy to work with friends and family (if required) to create a completely personalised ceremony. My background in running a Youth Theatre helps me in ensuring the ceremony runs smoothly and with the right sense of theatre. After all, everyone wants a standing ovation at the end! My services can include a rehearsal the day before and, using my event management background, can offer an "on the day coordinator" just to help make sure everything is running to plan - and to take the stress away on the day.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Alexandra Harrison
Firstly Congratulations, how bloomin' exciting. I would love to help you create the ceremony of your dreams. I come with a blank page ready to listen to your thoughts and ideas - but if you have a blank page then I can help you to start to fill it up. No two ceremonies are the same - and like your own favourite dish you will have your own magic ingredients you want to include. All my ceremonies take your ingredients and then mix it up with a sprinkle of love.

What a wonderful, empathetic, beautiful human bein
We invited Alex (whom we had never met before we started planning) to officially join our wedding breakfast and the rest of our day as our guest and friend!  We don't know how to write a higher praise than that!  What a wonderful, empathetic, beautiful human being. When you have your heart set on creating a crazy, wonderful, intensely personal, monster of a festival weekender, picking a celebrant that can pull of a ceremony in keeping is a helluva daunting task. Will they get us? Can they deliver a personal ceremony that doesn't come close to generic? Can they mix humour and poignancy and, in our case, a touch of theatrics? Can they mould to fit the occasion we want to create? With Alex, we got everything we wanted and so much more! She was perfect in every way. From our first phone call to the face to face meetings and the Skype calls and WhatsApp thread, Alex was with us every step of the way. The time she put into really getting to know who we are as individuals and as a couple was so worth the fee. Not just that she took the time, more that she was committed, flexible and accommodating to getting everything just the way we wanted it. (We'll say it again, a friend we invited for the rest of the day as our guest) Alex even went the extra mile when we needed help sourcing local suppliers.  She was equally not afraid to calmly guide and steer us when warranted (Mr. G in particular needs reigning in from time to time).  Mr. G, in particular, is very thankful for the squishy hug and calming presence in the hour before the big day! Alex created the perfect, bonkers, romantic, poignant, comedic, ceremony we dreamed off.  To a tee.  And when you're as detail-focused as we are, that really is saying something.
