Hi, I'm Vince

I am a relaxed rustic celebrant, with imagination and a passion for creativity, who wants to make the world smile. I have the ability to transform your journey of love into words, re-writing the stars and making your dreams a reality. Your happy ever after is the driving force to my work which is my world, and my ultimate goal is to craft you an unforgettable day. I adore boho, barn and outdoor ceremonies, so if this is your ideal wedding, then I’m your celebrant. I make a promise to my clients that the preparation process and the ceremony will be a fun journey together.

What's my ceremony style?

I pride myself in putting people at ease. I offer unlimited access to me throughout the planning stage and leading up to any ceremony. You will find that we will form a friendship and I will become part of the adventure leading up to your special day. There will never be a silly question, as every idea could be that all important suggestion that puts your ceremony above all others and will have your guests talking about it forever. We will have fun and laughter along the way as we re-write the stars.

Weddings

I love couples who think outside of the box. My passion is rustic, barn, woodland and boho ceremonies. There’s nothing better than finding a couple who wants that extra bit of sparkle and creativity, which gives me the opportunity to craft something really unique. Let’s face it, you wouldn’t choose a celebrant if you didn’t want something different! Just the adding of a symbolic ritual or having me compose a bespoke reading for you can transform a traditional ceremony into something extra special. That’s why I also love Themed Weddings! I am willing to perform any theme you like, your imagination is the only boundary. So, if you want Jedi & lightsabres, Starfleet Uniforms, Hogwarts Robes or a Winterfell Wedding, then I’m your guy. Pagan weddings also capture my imagination too, so let’s perform some magic together!

Whatever wedding you choose my price is the same, this will not compromise my creativity. There may be a slightly extra cost for travelling great distances, but that is something that is negotiable. I do offer a combined Celebrant and Toastmaster Package which will ensure you have a stress free spectacular day from the ceremony all the way to your first dance. This joint package can save you as much as £100.
My services include in depth consultations either in person or by video call, in order to build a proper working relationship with you and to explore your tastes, backgrounds and personalities.
Creating a bespoke ceremony with regular updates for you to approve the script and maintain frequent communication.
On the day, I will ensure the smooth running of your unique ceremony.
Provide you with a commemorative certificate and a presentation copy of your script, if you so wish.

Naming Ceremonies

The birth of a child is such an important event and a naming ceremony is a lovely way to celebrate the arrival of a new life into the world. This is a beautiful alternative to a Christening and can include as much or as little religious contents as you wish, it is your celebration so why be restricted. You can still nominate godparents or responsible adults who will play a significant role in your child’s life as they grow up. I will write and conduct a bespoke ceremony personal to you and your family, which again can take place absolutely anywhere the only limit is your imagination!

Renewal of Vows

What better way to celebrate a special anniversary then the renewal of your wedding day vows? This is the perfect time to exchange of rings again or present the gift of an eternity ring. The renewal can be as formal or as informal as you would like, so if you want a whole new wedding day, then why not? I can deliver a ceremony exactly how you would like it, with bespoke promises and vows especially written for the day, or written by yourselves.

Funerals

I run a professional dignified funeral service, especially written to honour your loved one. I will work closely with funeral directors and crematoriums to ensure the smooth running of the day, When a loved one passes it can be a difficult emotional time. It can be hard to put into words something reflects personally on someone so important and suitably honours their memory and a celebration of their life. Many people are stepping away from religious funerals as their family member or friend were not religious or were influenced by other faiths. Having taken the time to discuss with you your loved one’s history, personality and their journey through life, I would be honoured to prepare and deliver a eulogy which is compassionate and dignified reflecting upon all these characteristics. Let us celebrate their life, not mourn their passing.

Finding the words to celebrate the life of a friend or loved one who has passed away can be difficult. Enhancing my skills in family liaison at a time of grief, I will discuss with you in detail the life of this special person and place these memories into words. I will be with you from the beginning all the way to the end of the ceremony. Remember, wherever a beautiful soul has been there is a trail of beautiful memories. My services are £250 for weekdays, £300 for weekends. Bank Holidays to be discussed. I will supply a presentation copy of the service upon its completion.

Why choose Vince for your funeral?

Being a fully trained family liaison officer, I have the empathetic skills to support you during this traumatic time from our initial meeting until the end of the ceremony. I have guided many families through some very tragic bereavements and they have always sought comfort in my words and interactions. This is a journey that you do not have to take alone.

Wedding | 07/22/2021 | Cromwell Manor Pitsea

We booked Vince back in 2019 for what should of been our 2020 wedding, which then didn’t happen until last week. Vince was there supporting us through the stress of having a wedding booked during a pandemic and was very accommodating when it came to us having to set a new date. He could probably charge double what he does! His service is well worth the money and we couldn’t believe how good value our quote from him was. He is a true gentleman and made such an impact on our guests, a couple at my wedding now want him for theirs! Hannah & Owen xx
