EXPERIENCE

Hi, my name is Christina and I am a fully trained and experienced wedding and family celebrant based in Bournemouth. I have worked with many, many couples and performed ceremonies for them on their special day all over Dorset and beyond - as far away as Prague and Portugal! I also write and perform naming ceremonies and vow renewals.

CEREMONY STYLE

I have delivered every sort and style of wedding ceremony, from hand-fasting in woods and meadows, to officiating at large grand, traditional castle ceremonies and everything in between. I am very adaptable and just adore the variety of my work. I have learned Hebrew, danced the Hula-Hula on stage at a Hawaiian themed wedding, dressed the part for a Gothic wedding, and translated scripts into Spanish, German and Czech to enable all guests to feel included. Whatever vision you have for your wedding, I will do everything I can to help you realise it. There is always laughter and happy tears at the weddings I deliver.

Upwey, Dorset | September 2017

Thank you so much for our beautiful, funny, heartfelt ceremony. it was better than we could ever have imagined and so many of our guests commented on how memorable it was. Two friends even wondered if she’d travel to Hong Kong for their wedding!! Not only were your words so perfect but your delivery was amazing!


What Christina says...

What a lovely testimonial Hannah, thanks so much. I really enjoyed working with you all and if any of your friends do want me to marry them in Hong Kong, just say the word!

From the first time we met you, right up to our wedding day, you put both of us at ease with your wonderful, calming demeanour and kindness. You surpassed my already high expectations and delivered such a fantastic ceremony. Full of laughter and sincerity which captured the whole crowd. Everyone has commented on what a beautiful time it was and that was created by you!

We had such a connection with Christina, it just felt right. She went through everything before hand so it was all clear and included what we wanted. She was great. There was a hiccup on the day because my parents got held up for half an hour but Christina waited and kept the energy up. She was brilliant, she spoke to everybody there and everyone said she was lovely.


What Christina says...

Thank you Zoe. What a spectacular event that was and you both looked amazing. You thought of every last detail so there was no way I would let your parents miss it all! I would have waited for as long as it took.

I'm giving 6 stars !

I'm giving 6 stars because 5 isn't enough! Christina was absolutely amazing - I'm overwhelmed. She was just fantastic. We had a Hawaiian theme - which is very unusual - but she totally embraced it and entered into the spirit of our day. What she wrote was amazing. i would recommend her to everyone, the attention to detail was amazing . She made people cry, made people laugh and so may people said to us is it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. It was so special, I can never thank her enough


What Christina says...

Wow, thank you so much Lyn! I absolutely loved working with you both and thoroughly enjoyed your wedding day too! It was one of the most fun-filled and joyous events I have ever been involved in.

Why Choose Christina

I spent many years working as a researcher and am a published author. So, I will take great care over the creation of your script, making sure that it captures your personal style and story exactly. When I'm not performing weddings, I am often treading the boards as an actor, so I have a confident and relaxed communication style. Here's what some of my brides were kind enough to say about me:

"Absolutely everything about Christina was brilliant! All of our guests said they'd never been to a ceremony as magical as she made ours! She made the ceremony so personal and everybody commented on her professionalism and her presentation, it was just perfect. Everybody was laughing and crying in all the right places. So many of our friends asked for her details and want her to officiate their weddings!' (Jade).

"Christina really took the time to listen to what we had envisaged and got to know us as a couple, resulting in a beautifully scripted heartfelt ceremony. We even had family members ask us (and assume) that Christina must be a very good friend of ours to have gotten the tone, content and feel of our day so right. I would never hesitate to recommend Christina’s services. Her attention and devotion to making our day perfect, made it so". (Melissa).

"Words cannot express how thankful we are to Christina. We have received so many compliments about the ceremony...two friends even wondered if she’d travel to HK for their wedding!! When we first started thinking about our wedding, we agreed that we wanted a ceremony that we, and our family and friends, would remember - away from the stiffness of so many we'd witnessed. Everything she said and the way she said it was beyond what we thought we could achieve. Also, we really felt that she knew us and we knew her - it was so personal and unique to us". (Hannah).
