Hi, I'm Ana

Hello! Thanks for checking my listing. I create beautiful, personalised services to remember and treasure forever – so you’ve definitely found yourself in the right place!

I trained as Celebrant 5 years ago, but my expertise in public speaking and people skills comes from years as a Lecturer, Public Speaker, Personal Tutor and Mentor! I also have an MA in Poetics, so totally know how to craft and deliver touching services. I ALWAYS receive 5* reviews and have been shortlisted this year’s Guides For Brides National Awards, and I am the Regional South West TWIA winner for the 2021 awards.

Do feel free to book a free Video Call with me to see if you’d like working me and share some great ideas!

What's my ceremony style?

I LOVE all kinds of people and places, so I shy away from saying I’m exclusively ‘high end’ or otherwise; I’m totally open to ceremonies in all locations. No pigeonhole for me – give me a challenge! I’m equally happy as a hippy chic, in fancy dress or in my (vegan) leather-look biker jacket, but I also scrub up nicely in top-notch gear for high end venues! I like to coordinate my attire with your colours and vibe, also!

Dealing With Anything and Everything With Style!

In a 2020 RoV the husband, disabled after a stroke, touchingly walked in by himself. This service was FULL of love and laughter. The couple’s review said : ‘ Ana is like a conductor of an orchestra – she let people laugh when it was funny, brought it back down when we needed to, made us feel loved and special. PERFECT!

Why choose Ana?

You’d be totally happy and secure with me as your Celebrant, as I am creative, approachable, easy-going and helpful. I’d get to know you, listen to you and share so many ideas with you so that you feel happy and confident every step of the way. Nothing is too much trouble – look at the reviews I’ve received. I make myself easily contactable – even if you choose a eco video planning package, you’d feel totally comfortable with me and EVERYTHING I help you with. I’ll never look at you and see £ signs, but I charge a range of price points to suit different budgets and needs.

What do I offer?

Name change wedding

Weddings

I’m a very creative, attentive and experienced Celebrant who has been leading services, public speaking events and other presentations for decades. After formally training in Celebrancy in 2016, I work exclusively as a Celebrant and constantly update my skills. Working with couples and families is a pure joy and I focus on making each and every service unique and special.

I just LOVE my job and finding ways to make your service totally you and totally bespoke. Mine are relaxed, happy, funny and unique ceremonies. I have an imagination as big as mountain to help you find brilliant ways to personalise your special day.

Love is love and I happily work with all orientations, cultures and religions. I was so lucky to attend one of the first same-sex Canadian weddings; it had an English theme, with a fabulous blessing from ‘HRH Queen Elizabeth’.

Feel free to book a video chat with me over a cuppa or glass of vino! I offer a range of accessible price-points, including eco- friendly online planning options from just £475 if budgeting is something you need to consider.

Why choose Ana for your wedding?

I am approachable, easy-going and helpful. You can rely on me to understand you and your needs – and to brilliantly cater for them. You’d be in safe, caring hands with me. There are many, many Celebrants being trained in short courses every day – but you’d struggle to find one as versatile as me and with my breadth of life experience. I also am very fair and flexible in offering various price points to suit budgets – including eco-friendly video planning options way before C19!

Naming Ceremony

After formally training in 2 016, I work exclusively as a Celebrant and constantly update my skills. Working with couples and families is a pure joy and I focus on making each and every service unique and special.

I offer truly personalised and beautiful Naming and Family Blending Ceremonies. These tell ‘your story’ as parents and how your child came into your lives, or how your families have blended. As an adoptive mum, I also love adoption ceremonies which are so totally meaningful. If you wish to have symbolic elements and readings incorporated, I can help you make the right choices which suit you all. I love these events to be loving, magical and joyful – and they always are with me!

After formally training in 2016, I work exclusively as a Celebrant and constantly update my skills. Working with couples and families is a pure joy and I focus on making each and every service unique and special.

I absolutely love Vow Renewals and giving you both the chance to celebrate the time passed and to reiterate (and add to!) the vows you made all those years ago. A Renewal can be so much freer and more creative than your original wedding and my services are happy, laid back, often funny and totally loving.

Funerals

I’m a very creative, attentive and experienced Celebrant who has been leading services, public speaking events and other presentations for decades. After formally training in 2016, I work exclusively as a Celebrant and constantly update my skills. Working with couples and families is a pure joy and I focus on making each and every service unique and special.

I work closely with bereaved families to create beautiful Celebrations of Life which acknowledge how much there is to be thankful for in having had your loved one in your life. Each service is unique, with much time spent writing about your loved one’s life. I talk to relatives and friends to build a full, detailed tribute. I add personal and touching details such as photo candles, themes and music choices, and I support readers to be involved where possible.

Funerals can and should be so much more meaningful and personalised than they have traditionally been and I am happy to help create ceremonies that are truly memorable and bespoke.

I have years of pastoral experiences in adult education, which has very much helped me in working with griving families with tact and compassion.

Ana made the day that much more special

5 Stars
Emily Stone

Wedding | 10/25/2020 | The Roman Baths, Bath

Ana performed our wedding ceremony at the Roman Baths last month and it was a truly wonderful experience. We were quite last minute in terms of organizing the wedding due to multiple changing plans, but Ana was flexible, understanding and made sure we had the most important details ironed out. After a lovely intro meeting (on Zoom due to Covid), we completed a short questionnaire about each other, how we met, our shared life, which allowed Ana to write the most beautiful, personal, funny yet touching ceremony. She provided a ton of resources and ideas to help us think about the little details for the event. Having her lead the ceremony honestly made the day that much more special and memorable. Thank you Ana!!

Your experience and calmness under pressure were exactly what we needed

Wedding | 09/02/2020 | The Royal Crescent Hotel Bath

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a beautiful ceremony. We both loved the end result; it felt like the perfect reflection of us. It was such a pleasure working with you – your experience and calmness under pressure were exactly what we needed, given the ever-changing regulations.

Everyone loved the service, including the people on Zoom! One of my friends wrote, “what an incredibly special and personal wedding! I thought the officiant did and excellent job and I love how she shared your love story.” Another friend wrote, “I cannot believe how perfect the ceremony was. So elegant and thoughtful and loving.” And another friend wrote, “I’m so happy I could witness this beautiful ceremony. It was just lovely.”

So thank you again!
Very best wishes,
Joanne (and Steve!) xx
