Hi, I'm Colette

I create and perform ceremonies that are filled with love and laughter. Traditional, informal, quirky, fun or truly romantic, it is your ceremony, your choice. Creative, warm and friendly, I am happy to guide, and support you every step of the way – I love getting to know people, telling your story and creating memorable moments for you to share with friends and family. My focus for your ceremony is on you – your occasion, your day, your story. You may wish to input to you own ceremony script or you can leave it all up to me. You can trust me, rely on me and know that I will work my little socks off to ensure that you get the ceremony of your dreams.

My background in performing and public speaking provided me with the perfect foundation for my career as a Celebrant and I love people, singing, dancing, raspberry flavoured vodka and every type of celebration!

What's my ceremony style?

🀍 I am often described as engaging, positive, ‘a safe pair of hands’, calm and reassuring.

🀍 I am very organised so you can rest assured that I will pay attention to the small details that help your special day run smoothly.

🀍I am very adaptable – you may want a traditional ceremony, a contemporary twist, fun and funky, quirky, formal, informal, you name it
and I will write it!

Weddings

You are looking for a wedding ceremony that’s bespoke, rather than a standardised ‘off the shelf’ service. That’s what I do! If you are looking for a ceremony that’s tailor made for you, filled with laughter and tears (of joy!) then I would love to help make your big day extra special. You want your wedding ceremony to be at the heart of your day. 🀍 The promises and commitments you make to one another are unique to you, so why have the same ceremony as everyone else? I will work with you, advise and support you, until I have created a ceremony that reflects your personalities, beliefs and is truly you. You may want a traditional wedding, or to add a contemporary twist, you may want something completely different for a second time around……let your imagination run wild! I will work with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is talked about for years to come.

Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to throw away the rule book and celebrate your way. Whether you want to keep it beautifully simple or have an amazingly lavish wedding, I will create a personalised ceremony that you will remember for a lifetime.

I am imaginative and creative and there’s nothing I like better than coming up with ideas to make your day even more special.

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a fantastic opportunity to welcome a new arrival to the family. This could be a new baby, an adopted child or a child being brought into a blended family. I create a joyous ceremony for your family to express their feelings and mark the occasion with a truly meaningful and moving ceremony. Filled with fun and laughter, a naming ceremony provides happy memories for a lifetime.

Renewal of Vows

You may have got married in a registry office with a small number of guests and feel you have missed out on the wedding of your dreams. Maybe it’s now time to have that big wedding you planned with all your friends and family in attendance. And why not?

Or perhaps you have been married for some years (a milestone, maybe?) and you wish to mark the occasion by renewing your vows in a ceremony created especially for you.

Vow renewal, wedding blessing, whatever you want to call it, get everyone together and celebrate your way! There are no rules, no restrictions and no limits! Reaffirm your love and commitments to one another in a place of your choosing with a beautiful ceremony that’s designed just for you.

A vow renewal or blessing ceremony is a fantastic opportunity to say I do…again. Maybe you are marking a special anniversary, or perhaps you had a small legal ceremony and are having a larger gathering with a blessing. Either way I can create and lead a bespoke ceremony to tell your unique story your way. You may wish to include children or a symbolic element. I will get to know you and perform a ceremony with the personal touch.

Wedding | 08/28/2022 | Berkshire

Thank you so much for an amazing wedding ceremony, everyone commented on what a different and personal ceremony it was, you certainly made our day. We will without a doubt be recommending to anyone we know getting married. We are over the moon with our certificate and wedding pack. Thank you for making us feel at ease and special.

Wedding | 10/06/2022 | Berkshire

We recently had the wedding of our dreams that was officiated by Colette and we couldn’t recommend her services enough. Colette told our story perfectly, which made our ceremony incredibly personal and special. Colette responded to any queries we had so quickly, and was always happy to help. She listened to everything we wanted and got it perfectly. She went above and beyond to help reassure us on the day, even helping my brother with his bow tie before the ceremony! A really wonderful experience, that we will remember forever. Thank you Colette x
