Hi, I'm Lucy
My area of expertise is the best of the South of France. Having lived there for 20 years, and been a luxury wedding planner in Provence and all along the Riviera, I know all about wonderful locations for your ceremony and how to make your ceremony truly memorable and special. Now trained as a celebrant, I create ceremonies for weddings, renewal of vows, and naming ceremonies. I divide my time between France and Wiltshire England and offer these ceremonies in both countries. I speak English and French, and conduct my ceremonies in English.
What's my ceremony style?
My style is classic and elegant and also fun. Your ceremony needs gravitas, a real sense of occasion, and it can inspire everyone present to be a better person.
Whether you are celebrating in France or in England, let the ceremony have “la joie de vie”, to make everyone feel joyous and delighted to be there. Also a certain “je ne sais quoi” that lifts it out of the ordinary and gives it a special twist.
My career journey has taken me from tour managing Americans in Egypt and Europe, to being a milliner creating hats for weddings and the races, both in England and France, to being a luxury wedding planner and now a life celebrant. As a celebrant I draw on all my life experiences and my ability to understand people’s wishes and translate them into fantastic occasions. I can’t wait to get started on yours….
Namings and renewals from £450, weddings from £850 in the UK and £1250 in France
Why choose Lucy?
“We can’t believe how perfectly you nailed our vision. The ceremony was amazing and felt totally like us. You really have a talent for being a celebrant and your eye for detail! ” Don’t take my word for it, listen to my couple Yasmin and Nick. I really listen to you and I want your ceremony to reflect you perfectly. As a wedding planner, I have sat in on well over 100 ceremonies conducted by many different officiants so I recognise what makes a really great ceremony, what truly touches people, what makes ceremonies memorable. Let’s make your ceremony special together.
What do I offer?
My area of expertise is the best of the South of France. Having lived there for 20 years, and been a luxury wedding planner in Provence and all along the Riviera, I know all about wonderful locations for your ceremony and how to make your ceremony truly memorable and special. Now trained as a celebrant, I divide my time between France and Wiltshire England and offer wedding ceremonies in both countries. I speak English and French, and conduct my ceremonies in English.
All types of ceremonies. Everyone is welcome. The ceremony is created for your vows, reflecting your beliefs, celebrating all that is unique about you. Whatever your religious beliefs, culture, sexual orientation, your ceremony will be the perfect fit for you and your friends and family.
£850 in the UK and £1250 in France, these prices include all the preparation of your unique ceremony, a walk-through if you wish the day before, and conducting the ceremony on the day. I try to include my travel costs in my fees as much as possible.
Why choose Lucy for your wedding?
My two areas of speciality are the South of France (Provence and the Riviera) and in England, Wiltshire and the South of England. My knowledge of France and my experience of holding weddings in France can help enormously as you plan your wedding there, and I can help you communicate with your suppliers and give you advice in the leadup to the wedding. But both in France or England, my ceremonies are heartfelt, elegant, with beautiful vows, poetry that resonates, and a ceremony that leaves everyone present feeling uplifted and a better person.
I have trained as a life celebrant and I love to conduct all sorts of different ceremonies that celebrate life. Naming ceremonies can be very individual and creative. There are so many moments to celebrate in life, and naming ceremonies are perfect for picking a day to highlight something special. They can be birth of a baby, welcoming a child into a family upon adoption, bringing together two families and children through remarriage, or just beginning a new life, whether that follows divorce, change of gender, or an illness. There are also opportunities to celebrate a new home, a boat, a new business.
Baby namings, adoption, new family groups, transgender renaming are all occasions for special celebration. I also offer house-warming, boat and pet-naming ceremonies….
In other words, any excuse for a party and to celebrate life!
Let’s have cake and champagne, or fresh squeezed lemonade and strawberries…
Let’s plant trees, lots of trees, more trees ….
Let’s tie colourful ribbons, arrange big armfuls of flowers, pick scented roses…
Let’s play live music and dance around… Read from favourite stories and novels….
Let’s have fun making a special ceremony together. I love it. And if we can do this in the south of France, all the better…..
Why choose Lucy for your naming ceremony?
Because naming ceremonies are so joyous, and I love to enjoy and share joy.
Renewal of Vows
My area of expertise is the best of the South of France. Having lived there for 20 years, and been a luxury wedding planner in Provence and all along the Riviera, I know all about wonderful locations for your ceremony and how to make your ceremony truly memorable and special. Now trained as a celebrant, I divide my time between France and Wiltshire England and offer renewal ceremonies in both countries. I speak English and French, and conduct my ceremonies in English.
I love learning your life stories and am empathetic, kind and listening.
I offer this service in both England and France, but I can highly recommend France – why not make it an excuse for a family holiday?
Why choose Lucy for your renewal of vows?
I have been married for 33 years now, and together we have lived in America, France and the UK. Its been an adventure; we’ve created businesses, been made redundant, bounced back; we’ve got three lovely children, we’ve lived with heartache and lost close family members. All this to say, that I have a lot of life experience which makes me a very understanding celebrant. Life is precious, and I like the find the amazing in every day. I am optimistic, love to laugh, and am endlessly curious. I bring this positivity to my ceremonies.
As a civil celebrant I work with you, alongside your funeral director to create the appropriate funeral for you and your family. It can include religious elements, or be non-religious according to your beliefs.
I have trained with the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants in Funeral Celebrancy.
During these times of Covid, the number of guests is very restricted, so you may like to consider having a Celebration of Life ceremony at a later date along with all your friends and extended family. With all my experience in wedding planning, we can create a joyous and unique occasion to truly celebrate the life of your loved one.
If working with a funeral director for a cremation ceremony £200.
Ceremony with natural or green funeral £250-400
Celebration of life ceremonies FROM £250
Memorial services or scattering of ashes following a cremation ceremony. From £200
Why choose Lucy for your funeral?
I am also a member of the Good Funeral Guild, a collective of like-minded people working to change funerals for the better. This means giving people more choice and more voice in the planning of their funerals.
So the options are all there for you, natural or green burials, simple cremation with a celebration of life ceremony in a location of your choosing, your beliefs reflected in the ceremony, and all the time you need to make your decisions.

We could not imagine a more perfect ceremony
Hi Lucy! Apologies for the late reply! Thank you again for our absolutely perfect wedding. We could not imagine a more perfect ceremony.
The rest of our trip was wonderful, we did have a few days of jetlag when we got back though!
We can’t thank Lucy enough for the beautiful ceremony she conducted
We were so pleased we chose Lucy for our wedding in Wiltshire. She took the time to get to know us, provided thoughtful suggestions to suit us, helped us select a beautiful spot for the ceremony at our venue and kept us on track in the lead up for the big day – it’s easy to get distracted! We highly recommend Lucy and can’t thank her enough for the beautiful ceremony she conducted.
Lucy was absolutely fabulous, the best celebrant we could have asked for!
