Hi, I'm Yvonne
Your Ceremony is the heart of your day, and your love story is special, unique and beautiful. As an experienced Celebrant, I have created over 300 awesome, emotional, personal ceremonies that have included rituals, storytelling, and if wished, religious and spiritual content. I adore Weddings. I am passionate about choice. I am there for you 100% to make your dream ceremony come true. I specialise in heartfelt authentic ceremonies in English/German, and travel throughout the Home Counties, UK/Europe.
What's my ceremony style?
I am warm, engaging, enthusiastic and adore storytelling, a sucker for romance and a love story, and to saying a big fat YES to what you want to feel and experience on the most important day of your lives! I want you and your loved ones to feel relaxed, happy and satisfied that your ceremony reflects you both in an authentic way and includes your values, beliefs and lifestyle. I am a real “people person”, it will be an honour and pleasure to create your ceremony, making beautiful memories.

Double Wedding in UK
I was contacted to create two separate ceremonies for “sisters in law to be” to write, and lead, a double wedding day. Both had had their initial plans changed due to COVID – they were both so disappointed as their destination ceremonies could not go ahead. However, with their Celebrant ceremony they both felt excited, and that their day simply was the best as it reflected them individually and authentically, which meant that each of their weddings respected and honoured their own unique love story.
Why choose Yvonne?
I am as excited and enthusiastic about your wedding as you are! I have been so lucky to have been chosen by over 300 couples since training in 2011. It is all about you – your ideas, style, personality. With my experience and 100% commitment to be there for you, your ceremony is in safe hands. Let’s chat soon!
What do I offer?
One of my first questions when we chat will be How do you want to feel on your Wedding Day? Do you want a Ceremony that’s the same as everyone else’s or a Ceremony that is truly authentic, represents you, and is filled with personal touches, emotion and sincerity – oh, and FUN too? Are you dreaming of a day where you can feel relaxed, and special, and know you have really made memories not just for yourselves, but for everyone in your love bubble too? What’s your style? What ideas have you picked up from Pinterest (go on admit it, you have had a peek)?My ceremonies are described as sincere, romantic, relaxed, and fun, and I can include religious, spiritual and cultural elements, to fully and completely represent your values, beliefs, and lifestyle.
There is so much to talk about! With my help, and your ideas, it really will be as unique as you are and after the time we spend together, I will feel like a trusted friend, and someone who you know has your back. I will do all I can to make your day perfect! You will bring your style, ideas, and love story. I will of course bring my own personality, my enthusiasm, my excitement about YOUR wedding, and my professionalism, experience and creativity. I know we can create something so wonderful, that you, and everyone involved, will just love it! It is a passion of mine to offer choice, flexibility and give you the Ceremony you’ve always dreamed of.
Why choose Yvonne for your wedding?
I am friendly, warm, approachable, calm and reliable. Celebrancy is my passion. It really is your day, your voice, your way. I have 10 years experience to draw upon, including helping with readings, music, choreography/design, wedding customs, indoor and outdoor venues, and writing personal vows and promises. I offer a confidential and inclusive service to all couples, families and communities, and respect all faiths, and lifestyles.

Renewal of Vows
A Renewal is a beautiful occasion, celebrating the years, the laughter and the tears, the challenges and the successes, and showing one another the true meaning of your love and your partnership. I will listen to your story, and help to create a wonderful, meaningful and memorable ceremony. Often chosen by couples to mark a particular anniversary, they can also include family members and vows and promises that are traditional and also personal. Your Renewal is a time to reflect on your marriage, your partnership, and all that you are still dreaming of. You can of course choose to have a destination renewal, with or without guests – which would be so memorable! Allow me to help you plan your beautiful “I always Will” Ceremony!
Couples decide to Renew their Vows for many different reasons; but usually it’s about Love, Gratitude and Re-dedicating themselves as “forever friends and partners”. Parents might also make special Vows and Promises to their children, – a tender and emotional moment that is breathtakingly special. Vow Renewals might seem a lot like Weddings, but for me they are a special moment in a couple’s life together, where we consider the past, challenges overcome, family life, and re-affirm the Vows made then, as we share dreams and goals for the time ahead. My Renewal ceremonies are emotional, sincere, filled with love, laughter and memories, and a firm commitment to a future, with new dreams and memories.
£750 and prevailing currency rates depending on country/destination
Why choose Yvonne for your renewal of vows?
It is always exciting for me to create and lead a Renewal Ceremony. Although there’ll be sincere or emotional moments, there will be laughter and fun, and the ability to relax and just enjoy every moment. The location might be somewhere with personal meaning, or a place that’s less formal than the original wedding, or it could be that this is the “Big Day” that had been dreamed of but for whatever reason was not able to be!

Yvonne really understood what we wanted…
Yvonne really understood what we wanted and helped us organise our thoughts regarding the ceremony. We had lots of contact before the day to arrange everything and she incorporated our ideas as well as providing a framework to the day. Her enthusiasm in regards to celebrating our union really helped make it special. You can tell that she really loves and enjoys her job, which made the day go really well. We had lots of pleasant feedback from our guests, who thoroughly enjoyed her service. We would recommend Yvonne to anyone looking for a bilingual, fun, and caring celebrant. Alex and Anna.
Yvonne created the perfect day for us….
Taken from Google Reviews: Well, what can I say about Yvonne… We didnt give her the easiest of tasks, asking her to turn around an Elopement ceremony, including scouting the location in the short space of a month! After a change in circumstances due to COVID, we had to cancel our original plans and made a last minute decision to go back to Berlin and elope. I found Yvonne online after doing a bit of research and instantly knew she was the celebrant for us, and prayed she was free on our date. By some miracle, she was and it was all hands on deck. She loved our story, and wrote it for the ceremony in the most beautiful way. It felt like she had known us for years. She listened to exactly what I wanted in a location, and found the most beautiful spot in a place we can visit time and time again and remember the occasion. From the way she interacted with us over emails, to the finishing touches she built into our ceremony, I cant thank Yvonne enough for creating the perfect day
You made our day even better…..
Thank you so much Yvonne!! We could not have asked for a better celebrant. You really did make our day even better with your thoroughness and the care you took with our ceremony. Thank yo again, it was such a joy meeting you and having you a part of our wedding day :)
