Hi, I'm Rosalie

Hi, I’m Rosalie (she/her), award-winning wedding and funeral celebrant based in London.

I create warm, truthful and sensitive ceremonies with a cosmopolitan touch. By carefully listening to your personal story, your ideas for the day and your views on life, love and death, I create and deliver unique and memorable ceremonies for any life-event.

The wedding side of my business is called Fusion Weddings (www.fusionweddings.co.uk). I capture stories of couples who value creativity, style and contemporary ways of celebrating their love. I specialise in multicultural, bilingual (Dutch/German/French-English) ceremonies in London & the UK and destination weddings.

I believe funerals can be beautiful, positive events. I create inclusive funeral ceremonies for people of all beliefs and none: at traditional chapels, woodland sites, alternative venues and also on Zoom. Check out my services at www.ritualstoday.co.uk

What's my ceremony style?

Being Dutch and fascinated by rituals from around the world, many of the couples I work with have an international or multicultural background. We work together to find a fun, relaxed and fitting way on how to incorporate multiple traditions within the wedding ceremony. I have conducted weddings in Morocco, France, Greece, Guernsey, Germany, the Netherlands, USA and have spoken Dutch, French, German and even Rumanian and Korean at ceremonies.

The funerals and memorial services I conduct are about the person who has died and provide a space for the living to say their farewells in a way that feels right for them. I love finding creative and meaningful ways to connect people in grief and love. I believe funerals can be approached in a modern, positive way. I have conducted ceremonies in private gardens, art galleries, outdoors and online via Zoom.

Weddings

I capture stories of couples who value creativity, style and contemporary ways of celebrating their love.

Such as David and Winnie, who celebrated their love in art-deco style that included a Chinese tea ceremony, a vintage radio player, and quote from The Little Prince.

Or Connor and Jessica, who said their ‘I do’s’ on the stair case of Battersea Arts centre in London, inspired by the movies of Wes Anderson.

And then Rosalie and Barry, who invited their guests to France, to witness their commitments in a carousel!

I offer wedding and renewal ceremonies in London, UK and worldwide, in person and online.

Big weddings, micro weddings, small weddings, elopements: you name it!

If you are looking for an MC for the rest of your day, I can offer that too.

Should you have nominated someone else to do the ceremony I can help them design the ceremony, write the script and coach them to ensure they shine on the day.

Funerals

I believe that funerals can be positive, meaningful events that help acknowledge a death, pay tribute to a life lived, release emotions that come with a loss, and find continuity in the relationship with the person who has died.

Every funeral and memorial ceremony I create is unique. I work at traditional chapels but also have led ceremonies at alternative locations:

June’s funeral took place in her own garden. We decorated her coffin with flowers from her garden and read from her favourite Jane Austen book.

For their Mum’s memorial service her children chose an art gallery to celebrate her life. After the ceremony people could visit an exhibition of her work.

Emmy’s memorial was in Holland Park, where her ashes arrived on a Harley Davidson.

Baby Evan’s funeral was at a local wood where he loved walking with his parents.

I conduct funeral and memorial ceremonies in London, UK and abroad. I also offer Zoom funeral and memorial services, enabling people to gather from all over the world to celebrate a life.

If you’d like to plan your own funeral I can help you bring together a living document to collect your ideas and plan for the day.

A living funeral is a way to celebrate your life while you are still alive. It’s a wonderful way to bring those dear to you together, share memorable stories and have a party.

Wonderfully kind and considerate

Funeral | 05/15/2024 | Putney Vale Crematorium

We found Rosalie through Poppy’s Funerals and she was the celebrant for my stepfather’s cremation. It was a difficult situation as my mother has dementia and was very anxious about the service. Rosalie took the time and trouble to come and meet my mother with me and find out all about my stepfather. She was so understanding, thoughtful and considerate and was able to put my mother completely at ease. I Iiked Rosalie very much immediately, her warmth and compassion showed through clearly while visiting my mother and at the service. Many people commented to me afterwards how beautifully she had conducted the service. Highly recommended.

Wedding | 04/20/2024 | London

We had the pleasure of having Rosalie conduct our ceremony for our wedding in April, which was everything we wanted and more – funny, moving, serious, and just overall so very beautiful. At various points, Rosalie had both us and our guests in tears, and we could truly not have imagined a better way to have our love story retold than through Rosalie’s words.

Rosalie’s words and delivery were beyond beautiful, and the ceremony was one of the most touching parts of our wedding day. Deciding to have a celebrant-led ceremony and finding Rosalie were truly among the best decisions we made in relation to our wedding and we could not be happier. Rosalie brought to life our different cultures and personalities beautifully, and we cannot imagine marking our special day and the start of our next chapter in any other way. It was truly a “fusion wedding” in every sense and it really came through so clearly that Rosalie “got” us and our differences as well as what connects us. Her energy was incredible and she truly commanded the entire room!

We received so many compliments about the ceremony – everyone said it was the most moving ceremony they had ever been to and they felt as though Rosalie had known us for years. We truly loved all about the ceremony. The parts we knew about in advance – which were even more beautiful when retold and brought to life on the day, the part we did not know about – which was so wonderful and clever, had the guests engaged and gave us a beautiful surprise, and Rosalie leading us through our vows and our unique spin on the handfasting ritual.

It was just “us” and it felt perfect, and we cannot thank her enough. She made it so easy being open and sharing private memories with her via her questionnaire for her to be able to tell our story. Rosalie went far above and beyond and committed so much time to our celebration, from coming for a site visit at the wedding venue and offering us multiple Zoom calls to helping with logistics on the day, designing the certificate, coordinating the guests with roles and liaising with others working at the wedding. On top of everything, she held the ceremony in two languages to make those in our family who don’t speak English feel included – truly amazing!

We’ll forever be grateful to her for making our ceremony so beautiful and for contributing to the most beautiful day of our lives. If you look for someone who will be fully invested in your ceremony and deliver the most beautiful retelling of your love story, Rosalie is the celebrant for you!

Funeral | 07/03/2024 | Golders Green Crematorium

Rosalie was recommended to us by Leverton’s, Funeral Directors, in Kentish Town. What good fortune for us! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to lead the funeral service for my husband. And she put in so much work beforehand with the family, not only learning about my husband, but getting to know the family and friends involved in presentation. She was a terrific person to have on the team: friendly, helpful and calm in the face of grief and family bickering!
