Fanfare Ceremonies

Reviews (11) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

I'm a hopeless romantic who loves a celebration. If you're looking for a charismatic, fun loving celebrant that radiates style with a smile you've come to the right place.

Hello. I'm Frances but everyone calls me Fan. I would love to work with you to create a bespoke ceremony for your wedding that truly reflects your values, beliefs and personalities, both individually and as a couple.

Covering Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and across the UK, Europe and the world; I will ensure that your ceremony is truly unique, engaging, heartfelt but most importantly, yours!

No matter what style of wedding you are after I guarantee there will be no yawning, snoring or boring – just smiles, laughs, hugs and happy tears. I am passionate and vibrant and can relate to any crowd, dissolve any tension or nerves there may be, am highly organised and will seamlessly fit into your vision for your day.

Beach, field, marquee, venue, farmyard, garden? Morning or Evening? Casual or formal - I don't mind - I love a good celebration!

Allow me to ease some pressure by helping you create your perfect ceremony. Whether you know exactly what you want or have no idea. I am here to work with you to make sure the outcome not only incorporates your dreams but exceeds your expectations. Furthermore I will ensure you enjoy the journey. In the words of AA Milne 'we didn't know we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun'. And that's exactly what we'll do - make memories of a truly fabulous event in your lives.

CEREMONY STYLE

I'm guessing my style leans towards the traditional but essentially the common denominator in all my ceremonies is that your particular wishes will be granted and they will be combined with a blend of romance, sincerity and humour in equal measures. Together we will create a magical ceremony that reflects the joy of your love and relationship with your personalities stamped all over it for your family and friends to enjoy and recognise.

Yes, we had a blast! A truly magical day and you were fabulous. In fact, I believe Jamie our photographer said that he had never seen a wedding audience so captivated by a ceremony before. They sat completely still! So photographing them was made easy. I actually do remember hearing nothing but the flowing stream at one point.

A BIG fat thank you coming your way from both of us. And can I also say that a couple of our male friends were so moved it brought them (almost) to tears ..Men, haha!

It was a pleasure to work with you, and have you as our celebrant for our most fabulous day.”

What an amazing decision we made to have Fan conduct our wedding ceremony!! From our very first meeting with Fan she made us feel at ease which then progressed right through to our wedding day. The personal touches that Fan brings to the ceremony are ones that you will treasure forever. We have had endless comments about how amazing our ceremony was and that is thanks to Fan! Amazingly professional. We cannot thank her enough!

Fan was the most amazing wedding celebrant!! We loved having her conduct our ceremony - it was perfect.
Fan was incredible, really down to earth and she made us feel at ease right from the first time we met her and it was as if we had known her for ages.
The ceremony was beautiful, there was tears and laughter and our guests loved how she got everyone involved.
I would recommend Fan a millions times over! Xx

We have finally stopped reeling from our amazing day and just wanted to send you a note to say a HUGE thank you for our ceremony. It was absolutely everything we had hoped for and exactly what we had in our minds when we started planning together. It was so personal and I didn't stop smiling throughout.
So many of our guests have mentioned to us how refreshing it was to come to a service where they weren't already mouthing the words before they were said! They absolutely loved how it was so 'us' and the overwhelming comments were of how relaxed the whole thing was. I know my stress levels were kept low because you had our backs! So thank you again, lots of love, Charlotte & Chris xxx

Fanfare Ceremonies made our day with her incredible humanist ceremony. I can’t recommend her enough! It was such a personal, emotional and funny wedding ceremony and I’m so so glad we chose to go down this route. She summarised our characters and relationship perfectly and so many of our guests commented on how much they loved it. Thank you so much Fan for making our day xxxxx

Where to begin?! Fan made our day exactly how we wanted it; laid back, funny and most importantly, personal. Everyone said how amazing you were and how it was so different but one of the best ceremonies, and they could hear you at the back! You helped make our day so perfect! Will recommend you till the cows come home!

When we started to plan our wedding - a relaxed, barefoot on a Kenyan beach vibe we both knew we didn’t want a traditional religious service but something meaningful and personal to us. And we wanted to write our own vows but frankly didn’t know where to start! Luckily just at that time Fan was recommended to us through our friendship network. We met up for an informal lunch and had a wonderful hour or so chatting over our story and what we wanted and from there Fan wrote the most delightful service for us and guided us to how to approach and write our vows. It was a moving moment to hear each other’s vows for the first time on our wedding day. Sadly we couldn’t magic Fan out to Kenya with us but she was there in spirit with us and we luckily found a charming priest there who was happy to read and conduct our bespoke, non religious service for us. If you are even considering making your wedding day more personal to you, I highly recommend you have a chat with the lovely Fan. She is a joy and we highly recommend her wonderful services - to have had her actually there conducting our service would have been the extra sparkle on the icing of the cake! She is heaven. Hugest heartfelt thank you, Fan

Well, where do we start ... from the very first email exchange (no lie) we just knew we were going to fall in love with this amazing lady. Her warm personality and genuine interest in us was evident from the very first 'hello'. On the Big Day there was not a dry eye in the marquee where our beautiful ceremony was held at Ash Barton Estate. Fan wrote a script that brought love, sincerity, humour and sheer emotion into one neat package, she tied it together with her special touch and sealed it with a label that had 'us' written all over it. As one of our guests described, "Fan had us in the palm of her hand, she commanded the whole ceremony but never took any of the limelight. You felt like you were in a safe pair of hands at all times and her focus was never anything other than you (the couple). It was without a doubt the most beautiful ceremony I've ever been too."
Fan ... dear Fan ... words will never convey the gratitude we have for giving us the most personal, magical and precious ceremony we could have ever imagined and dreamed of. Something we will never forget. Thank you.

our ceremony exceeded all our expectations of a wedding service could be, especially for second-timers, with adult children to consider and other issues in the mix. You were absolutely brilliant in every way. Right from day one and until the very last moment at the kirk, you kept us straight, you got all the right information out of us and most importantly you together all our random thoughts and feelings into a beautiful coherent and truly meaningful service for us. Very clever! I know that everyone in the congregation felt the same, and I think you must have noticed all the over-emotional 'lairds' dabbing at their eyes discreetly with their less inhibited wives fast funning out of tissues (so I'm told!). A brilliant result in my book. We have had so many compliments on the ceremony itself that I shall gather up some of the quotes for you from the letters we have received, as I think you should benefit from their lovely comments too. Thank you thank you Fan, really so truly I can't over emphasise how delighted we both were with the results and it was all down to you.

Fan you were just amazing and we are so happy we found you!
From our very first FaceTime meeting it felt like you were an old friend! We trusted you immediately, told you all our secrets and you created the most touching, hilarious, heart melting and meaningful ceremony for us, talking about us as if you had known us all our lives! You had all our guests (and us) laughing one minute and in tears the next!
We will treasure the memory of our special ceremony forever.
We recommend Fan from the bottom of our hearts
