Hi, I'm Christina

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.

What's my 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.

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).

A perfect day thanks to Christina,
Limited to 30 people the Wedding Ceremony went as planned and everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. We were very happy with the way Christina put everyone at ease and kept everyone smiling.
We would recommend Christina for any event to give that professional touch.

Christina was the perfect celebrant. We live in Australia so conducted our conversations via Facetime but instantly Christina put us at ease. Christina wrote our ceremony after conversations & a questionnaire then we had the opportunity to review. She accommodated all our requests & guided us when we were unsure. We felt she captured our story, our personalities & our love of each other perfectly so limited editing was required. On the day Christina was warm & kind. She made us both feel comfortable. We received so many compliments on our ceremony as it was personal & engaging – very different from other weddings that have generic scripts. We would recommend Christina wholeheartedly.
