Hi, I'm Emily

I am an award-winning, full-time, qualified independent celebrant specialising in all types of ceremonies. You have chosen a celebrant-led ceremony because you want your ceremony to reflect you. It is my job to work with you, from our very first contact until the day itself, to make sure this happens. Feel safe in the knowledge that wherever we are in the process, you are always in the driver’s seat. Throughout your planning, it’s likely that your ideas may change, so your ceremony needs to change to reflect this. That’s no problem! I want it to be perfect for you, so just let me know what the changes are and consider them done.

What's my ceremony style?

My ceremonies are a reflection of the people involved, and whether it is welcoming a child into a family, a couple committing to each other for life, or saying a final goodbye to a loved one, I strive to ensure that your ceremony encapsulates their individual wishes.

Why choose Emily?

Celebrancy is not my job, it’s my passion. You are at the heart of all I do, and each ceremony is as unique as each of you. I thrive on creating personal moments that fully reflect the essence of you, and making sure that you have the day that you dreamt about and deserve. I regularly conduct ceremonies all over the UK from East Sussex to Northamptonshire, across to Gloucestershire, and back down to Hampshire, so please feel free to call for a chat, wherever you are, to discuss your special day.

What do I offer?

Weddings

As an independent celebrant, I put you at the centre of your ceremony – whatever your vision, I will do my best to make it happen. There are no legal or belief-system restrictions on my ceremonies so you can host your celebrations wherever and however you choose, combining a variety of elements including religious, cultural and family rituals along with your unique love story. Organising your wedding should be enjoyable, with minimal stress, and communication is an important way to reduce any anxieties. I will always be available to you by email, at the end of a phone, video calls and for extra meetings to help put your mind at ease, so you enjoy the process of creating your perfect day. If you’re struggling I will help guide you. Don’t worry – there is always plenty of time to make everything perfect!

The process of creating your bespoke celebration ceremony is as individual as you. During your ceremony journey, I will be finding out about your vision of the day, your unique love story, what makes you such a perfect couple, your dreams for your future along with lots more wonderful detail. From this, I shall create your own personal biography that will form the basis of your bespoke ceremony. Whatever your vision, know that I will work with you to create the ceremony of your dreams.

Naming Ceremonies

When a child enters your life a new family begins, and that is something worth celebrating! A naming ceremony differs to a traditional christening because the main focus is not religion, instead, it is the child and their family. Every naming ceremony is unique and tailored around your family’s needs. For something extra memorable, why not have it themed around your child’s favourite book or toy? Unity ceremonies are a lovely addition to the celebrations too.

Naming ceremonies aren’t just for babies. Perhaps you never quite got around to having a celebration when your child was born – well it’s never too late! Adopting a child of any age is such a wonderful event and one that should be celebrated. Why not take the opportunity to formally welcome your child into your family with a Welcoming Ceremony. I specialise in ceremonies for older children and like to involve them in the process so it really is a day to remember.

Renewal of Vows

You may have decided to renew your vows to mark a special anniversary, milestone, or in recognition of overcoming a difficult period in your relationship. You may have loved your wedding day so much that you want to recreate your magical experience! The reasons to renew your vows are as unique yourselves, and, whatever the reason, your ceremony can be as intimate or as extravagant as you choose.

I will spend time with you, creating a personal ceremony that truly reflects both of you and where you are in your relationship. You may now have a family that you would like to be included, and I can liaise with them to help explain your thoughts and ideas. Couples often mark these occasions by rededicating their rings, including a unity ceremony, writing their own promises and exchange gifts. You may like a big party or prefer an intimate ceremony involving just the two of you. We will chat through your plans and together find what feels most comfortable and the best reflection of you.

Funerals

When someone close to you dies, it is a life-changing moment, and it is important to honour their life respectfully and in a way that best reflects them. I will work with you and be by your side, ensuring this happens.

Making decisions at this time is hard, so I will work with you at your pace to help you make informed ceremony choices and to capture the essence of your loved one so I can tell their story. You or others may wish to participate in the ceremony, or you may not. I will liaise with you as you decide what feels most comfortable for you. You may wish to include religious elements or cultural rituals, and we can work together to ensure that these are respectfully included.

Why choose Emily for your funeral?

A kind testimony that reflects what I do. “We just wanted to send you an email to express our overwhelming gratitude to you for your wonderful help and assistance with our Dad’s funeral. Right from the start we knew you were going to be the perfect person to take the service. After our initial meeting we all said how lovely you were and felt you understood exactly what we wanted which was such a huge relief! We had complete trust in you and you delivered a warm, uplifting personal service which captured Dad’s essence perfectly. Thank you.”

Renewal Of Vows | 10/21/2018 | Sopley Mill, Dorset

We were absolutely delighted with the ceremony Emily wrote for us for our 1 year anniversary wedding celebration and cannot recommend her highly enough! We were unsure of what format the ceremony should take and she was so helpful in going through all the options with us so we found the perfect fit. We had a long skype with Emily to talk about us as a couple and she took so many details we gave her and put them into the final ceremony, it was so special and personal for us. She was so relaxed and the whole process was so easy and stress free, especially important for us as we live abroad. So many of our guests commented on how personal and moving the ceremony was and how great Emily’s delivery was too – we couldn’t have hoped for anything more perfect! The printed copies of the ceremony were such a special touch too – thank you!

Thank you so much

Wedding | 07/07/2018 | West Sussex

Dear Emily,We were very happy with the ceremony and have received so many compliments from our guests. Many have said it was the most personalized and romantic ceremony they have been to. We are truly happy with your delivery and all the little bits you tied in to make our ceremony ours! From the moment we met you, you showed a genuine interest in our relationship and used this information to create a ceremony that was perfect for us and reflected us as a couple. We thought you was professional throughout and felt you worked with us rather than for us. It really was a pleasure having you at our day. Thank you again! If anyone is every in need of a celebrant we will defiantly recommend you.
