Specialisms

I adore holding ceremony outdoors where possible. Elopements are exciting and intimitate. The icing on the cake is a venue with a view of the sea, a mountain, the valley or beautiful gardens. I love nature, I love romance, and I really love cake.

Hi, I'm Amanda

Your Loving Life Celebrant.

How lucky am I that I get the honor of creating extraordinary ceremonies for you and your loved ones? Because there is nothing ordinary about you and your story.

I trained professionally with the Academy of Modern Celebrancy which gifts me the opportunity to travel around Spain (& beyond) as a nomadic independent celebrant officiating beautiful bespoke heart-led ceremonies.

What are the qualities that you are looking for in choosing the best officiant for your special occasion?

If joy, passion, and smiley are on your list, then I would love to be Your Loving Life Celebrant!

What's my ceremony style?

Radically and respectfully disrupting run-of-the-mill and boring! Let’s think outside the box, or how about we lose the box completely and start with a blank page to create a magical memory for you and your guests.

I am an advocate for unveiling your individual uniqueness and I am ready to listen deeply to design a mesmerising experience with you.

My promise to you is to put my heart and soul into serving your ideas and dreams for your big day.

Celebrating unity, diversity, and freedom.

Embracing love and the cycle of life ~ in all of its senses.

I will hold space and I have got your back with all the shenanigans of the ceremony ♥

One of my favourite celebrant moments...

It was at my very first wedding after the father of the bride had proudly walked his daughter down the aisle.

He was passing her hand over to the groom in the ceremony space when the eyes of the two men met… it was a moment, an intimate moment, where time appeared to stand still in a comfortable silence.

One of those felt experiences that moves you, beyond time, space, and matter. I was filled with awe and reverence.

“Look after her”, whispered the father, there was no hint of a threat in his whisper, more the vibe of “She is very special to me.”

The two men smiled at each other, “I promise.” replied the groom and then they embraced, and there, I felt it, that lump in my throat…the presence of love, the protective love of those we hold close in our hearts…it was gorgeous and I will never forget it.

Why choose Amanda?

My promise and commitment is to put my heart & soul into your ceremony…

❝ Success arises from innocence or from a sort of knowing

It arises from innocence when an individual is so devoted to her craft that she gives herself to it, day and night

Not because she wants to make herself a success

But because the craft is quite literally a part of her

She simply cannot imagine doing anything else with her life

She feels that she was born to do it

She feels that this is what she was made for

And because of this intimacy with her craft and the innocence with which she approaches it, her skill level soars

And success comes running to her. ❞

Adapted by Amanda from the words of ‘Atmamun’ by K. Gupta,

Weddings

Witnessing love in action is awesome. My favourite ceremony is creating something special that is perfect for you, that has meaning for you, and that reflects both of you, both as individuals and as a couple ~ a small gang, the best little team.

We can keep any of the traditional aspects of a ceremony that you love and I can help and guide you to choose the right words, music, and rituals along with any poems, prayers, and promises that truly express your authentic selves.

The Full Love Story Shebang ~ my favourite, a bespoke ceremony including the beautiful basics along with the couple’s journey & unique unity ritual (25-30 mins)

The Short, Sweet & Simple Ceremony ~ the beautiful basics with vows, I do’s, ring exchange (15 mins)

Naming Ceremonies

Babies and little people are shining examples of unconditional love. Pure potential in action. They are truly hypnotising and mesmerising.

Naming ceremonies are offered to welcome newborns and toddlers and also to families celebrating the adoption of a child or young person of any age.

It is a perfect celebration for the welcoming of step-children into a relationship or the blending of two families with children coming together to live in unity.

Renaming ceremonies are also designed for adults who choose to take on a new name, this acknowledges a journey of discovery and symbolises a new beginning, including a celebration after a divorce.

Trans naming ceremonies can offer a person a life moment, for reflection of their life so far and who they have become. Celebrating freedom and peace of mind…

Why choose Amanda for your naming ceremony?

Have you pondered about any of the symbolic rituals that could be fitting for your Naming Ceremony?

We can create one that is unique to represent you or your family. Sand, pebble, and water ceremonies are very popular, but there are so many to explore and I look forward to a discovery call to share more.

A Naming celebration is a joyful occasion, bringing your loved ones into a sacred, beautiful space that we will create to honour the gift of life, with love and gratitude as the baseline.

I can offer my smiley and happy disposition to sprinkle joy and magic as we create and perform a colourful ceremony to remember forever. We live in a world of infinite possibility, let’s smash it out of the ballpark!

Renewal Of Vows | 06/19/2022 | Viva Beach Club, Javea

This was my first time at a Renewal of Vows and also a celebrant-led ceremony and I did not really know what to expect. I imagined it would be similar to services that I have been to before at registry offices or church weddings, and they can often be a bit boring like we are all just sitting there, waiting for the drinks and celebrations after.
This ceremony was wonderful, I felt involved in the whole celebration, we all did, it was interesting and different, and it wasn’t like I was waiting for it to end!
It was really quite emotional, people laughed and cried with joy for the couple and it was just a really pleasant and enjoyable experience.
I loved the story of Jane and Darryl’s journey through the last 25 years, and the colourful sand unity ritual, I had never seen anything like that before at a service.
Great job Amanda, you made it very special for us all, love Steph & Dave xx

Amanda, what you did for us on our wedding day, and before, and after, was just so, so special. From the moment that we met at your place, we felt so connected to you, and you found out so much about us and our love story. We really appreciated that you came the day before and met both of our families. Everybody thought you were amazing! Sarah and I loved our Cocktail Unity Ritual, it was perfect for us. Amanda, you made us feel so comfortable, and we will highly recommend you to anyone in the future. Thank you for your kindness, we love you lots xxx Lee & Sarah

Amanda, You gave us the most amazing gift with your words. We loved everything that you wrote.
I remember that I was in tears reading the script for the first time, emotional tears of love and joy at reading our love story.
You were so helpful and kind when I kept tweaking my vows and I appreciated that.
The ceremony captured us and set the perfect mood for all our family and friends and we could not have asked for more. Really, It was perfect perfect perfect!
Thank you so much for making our day so special and for being so fabulous. Everybody loved it.
We hope to see you again soon
Sarah a.k.a Mrs Brogden
