Why choose Ali?
I have been a celebrant for 8 years and before that was working within the wedding industry so its fair to say I come with a wealth of knowledge and expertise .With using my services , I offer you a helping hand of support , of ideas, and the passion to deliver a fully choreographed ceremony that both of you will love – after all it is set around your unique journey together . I am friendly, approachable, personable and professional.
I offer innovative ideas to all of my couples who aren’t even aware of what they can have in their ceremony.
My role is about taking away some of your stresses so you are able to enjoy the ceremony – remember the ceremony is the setting of what celebrations are to follow so you want it to be just perfect . Creating those memories, for you and all of your chosen guests .
What do I offer?
My niche couple are those that value a celebrants work and understand the importance for them of how the important the ceremony is in setting the scene for the rest of the celebrations .
I love any ceremony type – I love the variety of location , the difference working with each couple, and the absolute buzz of delivering on the chosen date, for the guests to have a really memorable occasion alongside my couple .
I am loving the couples taking on board the introduction of “the Harmony glass experience”, which is an experience that starts before , during and after the ceremony.. perfect for couples looking for ways to incorporate children into their day will love how the children can choose their own coloured glass crystals to pour on the day, and they love the studio experience after the event as well … and hey can have their own small piece of memory glass to nurture.
Congratulations on your fabulous news…. oh the excitement, exhilaration, the adrenaline of that perfect moment when the ring is placed on your finger … What an amazing start to what will be the first chapter of your new life book for you both… That amazing start means that you will be looking for an equally amazing wedding day…
Thank you for your interest shown in reading my page….. Welcome to the world of Cariad… I would love you to visit my website to read more about what I am able to offer and my past industry experience.
There are many different celebrants to chose from in this listing.. . my advice to you – at this most important stage at the start of your journey- chose a celebrant that you fall in love with, a passionate person who inspires you and is going to be the person who is to make your dreams a reality…
This part of the process is the most important, I offer a complimentary face to face meeting- or a skype/ zoom call if that is not possible….. I spend our initial time together listening to YOU… I love to hear your love story… It is what all the ceremonies that I write are based on – all about your family, and children if any. All your chosen loved ones and guests are going to be taking part in your ceremony as well- they are the most important people that you want to share your day with…
All of the ceremonies written for you are unique and exactly as you would like it to be… traditional, quirky, musical, spiritual. Any time of day… Morning, noon or night, I only book one ceremony a day so you choose when. If you would like religious elements or any family traditions include… no problem.
Unfortunately, Celebrant ceremonies are not yet legally binding so a visit to your nearest register office is a necessity. I have 12 years of previous registration experience so I am happy to make this a simple process for you. Many of my past couples have chosen to wait until after their celebrant ceremony to complete their legal part… there are no hard and fast rules… again it is choice for you.
I look forward to your inquiry…. 2021 ceremony bookings now being taken …. Spreading the Cariad love

Why choose Ali for your wedding?
I enthuse passion about my work, I am friendly, approachable, personable and professional. I give ideas to couples who aren’t aware of what they are allowed to have in their ceremony being so used to being told what constant restrictions there are … not with a celebrant led ceremony..
It offers so much flexibility for couples or families. I work with each couple at least 6 months, often much longer before their ceremony date- we have talked and communicated endlessly, the couple knows the complete content of their ceremony, we walk and talk through the logistics of the day taking many pre stresses away so the day can be fully enjoyed.
Let’s make this first chapter of your new life book of Love together, be an original first and only edition.
A lot of couples do not know about naming ceremonies and is a wonderful proud moment where all the family can get together . I love how lots of people can be part of the ceremony- of course baby is the star alongside mum and dad , but there are also parts for supporting adults , grandparents and great grandparents- it is a good time to thank them for any daily support that has been given since baby has been born .
The day can be themed – down to the music choices and the content is upbeat, fun and a great recognition for baby of those around them there for support .
I particularly love the rose petal ceremony for a girl or a tree planting for a boy, messages written and placed on a tree, a message box and gift giving … plus any ideas of your own of course !
I have been noticing lots of my couples are having babies during their wedding planning time , and I offer a joint wedding/naming ceremony on the day. Because the wedding is the time where all your loved ones and friends are invited , it means not having to hold a separate celebration. at a later date .
Why choose Ali for your naming ceremony?
I am a very friendly approachable celebrant who relates well to children, particularly babies . I am a mother of 2 and a grandmother of 1 (another on the way ) so i am around young children and babies all the time. If a baby is born after the wedding day and the occasion is to be a seperate celebration then let me take the strain – I can recommend other suppliers that you may need , provide you with a lot of help, ideas and support.
Renewal of Vows
Why choose Ali for your renewal of vows?
I have worked alongside many couples all celebrating their Renewal of wedding vows at all different points on their journey …. Recently during lockdown a lot of couples have gone through through the legal part of the marriage but missed out on the celebrating with their chosen friends and loved ones . I have found an increase of enquiries with couples in this situation wanting a replica ceremony to be able to have the day that they originally had to miss out on . I also work alongside couples celebrating a milestone in their marriage 10 years ,25 years , 30 or 40 years and recently a 50 years Golden wedding anniversary … The wonderful part of these events is that sometimes the original best man and bridesmaids are able to be present, but any children or grandchildren – all additions to their family , who can all have a part to play in the ceremony.
Why choose Ali for your funeral?
I enthuse passion about my work, I am friendly, approachable, personable and professional.

Ali you certainly didn’t let us down on our big day, you went above and beyond what we expected, from when we met at a wedding fayre to our actual day you was always reassuring and putting different ideas to us… Everyone of our guests loved how different our ceremony was, quote It wasn’t the normal boring ceremony that makes you want to sleep.. All of our bridal and groom party got involved even those that have passed and for that we will treasure our memories for ever � x
Thank you so much Ali for making our day unique, and perfect. we really wanted the ceremony to be true to us and it so was. Blessed to have met you. Xxx
