Weddings and renewals

“How do you spell ‘love’?” asked Piglet.
“You don’t spell it… you feel it,” replied Pooh.
– A.A. Milne

Congratulations!

.
You have found a very special person, someone who makes you feel like the most special human being in the universe and you would like to celebrate your love, or renew your vows.

Create the day of your dreams

.
You are unique. Your love story is unique. So why not choose a unique ceremony that reflects your personalities? Venue, tone, music, texts, symbols, rituals – there are no limitations in creating the day of your dreams.

As a celebrant, it’s my passion to create ceremonies that are meaningful to you. Whether you prefer a traditional or modern style, a secular, religious or interfaith content, a lavish or intimate setting, I can help you create a unique event that fits you perfectly.

If you are looking for some inspiration, please check out my blogposts on how a celebrant can make your day, example rituals to include in your ceremony, or how a traditional blessing can be used in a modern way.

Remember: you should register your marriage or civil partnership at your local registry office for it to be legally recorded.

To Dutch couples living in London and the rest of the UK: neem gerust contact op mocht je meer informatie willen over trouwen in Londen en de rest van Engeland, en hoe ik als Nederlands sprekende celebrant kan helpen jullie huwelijk persoonlijk en uniek vorm te geven!

How do I work?

.
Services
.

  • Meet and greet. To ensure that I am the right person to conduct your day, I offer a free, no-obligation meeting face-to-face or via Skype. This consultation allows us to get to know each other. I also aim to understand your ideas on the ceremony design. After our meeting, I will send you some questions to help you to envision your ideal day.
  • Ceremony design. If you decide to work with me, I will ask you to fill in a booking form with a payment to secure the date. I will design the ceremony in detail. I will write a script and work with you to make sure that you are happy with the various elements. I can also assist you in writing your vows.
    .
  • Rehearsal. When you have approved the script, we will meet at the venue to do a rehearsal. We will choreograph the different elements of the ceremony so that everyone is prepared for the day ahead.
    .
  • The ceremony. On the day, I will liaise with your other suppliers to ensure that everyone is working together to deliver a perfect ceremony. I will act as the officiant and deliver the ceremony we have created. I will be available before the ceremony for any questions you may have.
    .
  • Keepsake. After the ceremony, I will present you with a personalised certificate.

Remember: you should register your marriage or civil partnership at your local registry office for it to be legally recorded.

Testimonials

.
“We are so happy we decided to use Rosalie as our celebrant at our wedding. After a couple of meetings with us, she listened to our ideas and created a perfect service, which incorporated all of the things that were important to us. She is warm, personable and incredibly professional; often thinking one step ahead, asking the right questions to guide us along the way. Our vows were framed in such a beautiful, perfect way”. – Rosalie & Barry

“From the moment we met Rosalie we knew we had met our wedding celebrant. During the run up to the wedding we were in regular contact, Rosalie took the time to get to know us and through that we knew we had the wedding ceremony we had dreamed of as we had worked together with Rosalie on the script, our vows, the poems and the music. On the day itself, the ceremony could not have been a happier occasion, Rosalie lit up the room, she made our guests laugh with anecdotes about us and helped us out when we forgot our vows. All our guests commented on how beautifully Rosalie had conducted the ceremony. Finally, my Dutch relatives loved the fact we brought a bit of Dutch into the wedding through Rosalie! If you’re looking for a wedding celebrant, look no further”. – Claire & Jonathan
