Hi, I'm Rosalie
Hi, I’m Rosalie (she/her), award-winning wedding and funeral celebrant based in London.
I create warm, truthful and sensitive ceremonies with a cosmopolitan touch. By carefully listening to your personal story, your ideas for the day and your views on life, love and death, I create and deliver unique and memorable ceremonies for any life-event.
The wedding side of my business is called Fusion Weddings (www.fusionweddings.co.uk). I capture stories of couples who value creativity, style and contemporary ways of celebrating their love. I specialise in multicultural, bilingual (Dutch-English) ceremonies in London & the UK and destination weddings.
I believe funerals can be beautiful, positive events. I create inclusive funeral ceremonies for people of all beliefs and none: at traditional chapels, woodland sites, alternative venues and also on Zoom. Check out my services at www.ritualstoday.co.uk
What's my ceremony style?
Being Dutch and fascinated by rituals from around the world, many of the couples I work with have an international or multicultural background. We work together to find a fun, relaxed and fitting way on how to incorporate multiple traditions within the wedding ceremony. I have conducted weddings in Morocco, France, and the Netherlands and have spoken Dutch, French, German and even Rumanian and Korean at ceremonies.
The funerals and memorial services I conduct are about the person who has died and provide a space for the living to say their farewells in a way that feels right for them. I love finding creative and meaningful ways to connect people in grief and love. I believe funerals can be approached in a modern, positive way. I have conducted ceremonies in private gardens, art galleries, outdoors and online via Zoom.
From £700 (Weddings), £350 (Funerals)
Why choose Rosalie?
Modern, creative ceremonies delivered in elegance and style. No templates, no rules. Every ceremony I create is unique, bringing to life the special story of two people in love or the life of someone who has died.
Inclusivity is one of my core values. I want everyone to feel welcome, safe and valued. I am an LGBTQ+ Ally and Dementia Friend, love working with children and keen to include people of all abilities.
What do I offer?
I capture stories of couples who value creativity, style and contemporary ways of celebrating their love.
Such as David and Winnie, who celebrated their love in art-deco style that included a Chinese tea ceremony, a vintage radio player, and quote from The Little Prince.
Or Connor and Jessica, who said their ‘I do’s’ on the stair case of Battersea Arts centre in London, inspired by the movies of Wes Anderson.
And then Rosalie and Barry, who invited their guests to France, to witness their commitments in a carousel!
I offer wedding and renewal ceremonies in London, UK and worldwide, in person and online.
Big weddings, micro weddings, small weddings, elopements: you name it!
If you are looking for an MC for the rest of your day, I can offer that too.
Should you have nominated someone else to do the ceremony I can help them design the ceremony, write the script and coach them to ensure they shine on the day.

Renewal of Vows
I love working with people who are looking for a creative, personalised and unconventional way to celebrate their love.
By carefully listening to your personal story, your ideas for the day and your views on life, love and marriage, I create and deliver a unique and memorable ceremony.
I take you on a journey, identifying what makes your relationship meaningful, what makes your love unique, and what it means for you to get renew your vows. This typically results in a warm, moving and heartfelt event, with room for both laughter and tears.
Why choose Rosalie for your renewal of vows?
People appreciate my warm, creative and fun-loving approach. I love to engage the audience an co-create an event with you that people will cherish and remember.
I believe that funerals can be positive, meaningful events that help acknowledge a death, pay tribute to a life lived, release emotions that come with a loss, and find continuity in the relationship with the person who has died.
Every funeral and memorial ceremony I create is unique. I work at traditional chapels but also have led ceremonies at alternative locations:
June’s funeral took place in her own garden. We decorated her coffin with flowers from her garden and read from her favourite Jane Austen book.
For their Mum’s memorial service her children chose an art gallery to celebrate her life. After the ceremony people could visit an exhibition of her work.
Emmy’s memorial was in Holland Park, where her ashes arrived on a Harley Davidson.
Baby Evan’s funeral was at a local wood where he loved walking with his parents.
I conduct funeral and memorial ceremonies in London, UK and abroad. I also offer Zoom funeral and memorial services, enabling people to gather from all over the world to celebrate a life.
If you’d like to plan your own funeral I can help you bring together a living document to collect your ideas and plan for the day.
A living funeral is a way to celebrate your life while you are still alive. It’s a wonderful way to bring those dear to you together, share memorable stories and have a party.
Why choose Rosalie for your funeral?
People appreciate my warm, thoughtful, modern, creative and positive approach.

A wonderful wedding celebrant
We made such a good choice picking Rosalie, after chatting with a few different celebrants. She felt very easy to talk to, and like she quickly understood what we were looking for, which was something informal and laid back, personal to us, and made creative use of our outdoor venue. Rosalie followed through on all counts, and we were most impressed by how well she listened and seemed to know us after just one meeting. On the day itself, Rosalie had such a lovely energy and the ceremony was beautiful. Couldn’t recommend Rosalie enough!
Strong but gentle support
I knew Rosalie from 2021 when she was the celebrant at my mother’s funeral. My sister, Joanna and I felt safe and secure in Rosalie’s hands and were able to concentrate on the service and family and friends despite the restrictions brought about by Covid. Sadly Joanna became seriously ill soon afterwards. She was clear that she wanted Rosalie to conduct her own funeral when the time came.
Rosalie has been such a support – guiding us through the whole process of arranging a funeral and being particularly attentive to the timings. She is a warm hearted person who takes a lot of interest in her ‘clients’ and manages to convey the spirit of a person in a few short sentences.
I highly recommend her.
We Wouldn’t Consider Anyone Else!
We were recommended to speak with Rosalie after our daughter was stillborn in June 2021. Neither my husband nor I had ever had to organise a funeral but Rosalie provided perfect guidance to help us make the occasion a positive one, both a “hello” and a “goodbye”.
Rosalie takes her time to get to understand the situation and the person who has died and is willing to offer suggestions (if you would like them) to make the service unique. Rosalie shares her draft script for the service with you and is more than happy to take comments and discuss it until you are 100% happy with the content. This process results in a feeling that Rosalie knows you/the deceased and is herself part of the family.
When the unthinkable happened and we lost another daughter in July 2022, Rosalie was the first person we contacted. We couldn’t envisage anyone else conducting the funeral. Even other attendees asked us if Rosalie would be there as she did such an incredible job in 2021.
It is fair to say that this isn’t Rosalie’s job, it’s her calling.
