Alexandra-Celebrant - Your Ceremony Your Way

Reviews (6) - 5/5

EXPERIENCE

A ceremony is about YOU and what you want.

To make it really personal and completely tailored takes more time than just filling in a form.
I take the time to understand what you are like and what you want. I think this is so important.

If you tell me "X" is your favourite film I will go and watch it. If you say "Z" is my favourite song I will listen to it.

It is essential that I understand you and what you want.

I can also add ideas and guide you through finding the perfect poems and readings. I work very closely with you to create the ceremony you want.

There is no point me choosing “Bonkers” by Dizzy Rascal if you prefer “Pachelbel’s Cannon”.
There is no point me suggesting your rings are "brought in by an owl" if you have a fear of birds!

I will work with you to incorporate all the elements you want, spiritual, personal, moving, funny, rustic, vintage, wacky even.

The key thing is that the ceremony suits you perfectly.

CEREMONY STYLE

Gosh, Ceremony Style - well it's all about you, not me!
I guess I am a very down to earth person. Completely focused on customer service (it's in the blood).

Warm, engaging and collaborative.
Flexible and open-minded.
I love an outdoor wedding but equally happy under a roof.

I am not restricted to time. I am also not restricted to what content we include or to using beautiful symbolic actions. So feel free to think out side the box.

This means that the only thing stopping us is our imaginations. So if you want to have your ceremony in a hot air balloon or in your own garden that's fine by me.

L,M & Q

Tunbridge Wells Crematorium | September 2018

We were so pleased to have found Alex Harrison to help us put my mum to rest. She was empathetic and so obviously genuine in sharing our grief that it was easy to welcome her into our family for that difficult and emotional period of time. She went above and beyond the call of duty by travelling out to meet our dad, to get to know him and to talk to him about our mum so she could be ready to support fully on the day. In the lead up to the service there was much to organise and she helped make this happen with patience and understanding. On the day, the service was beautifully organised, calm, empathetic and absolutely in tune with what the family needed at that delicate time. Thank you Alex for playing such a central role in bringing us comfort and helping us all lay our mum to rest.


What Alexandra says...

Dear L, M & Q
Thank you so much for your very kind words. Meeting all of you, and visiting your mums beloved garden was so important. I am just glad that I have managed to help make your mums funeral the celebration of her life that you wanted.

Weekend Festival Wedding

Mr & Mrs G

The Party Field East Sussex | July 2018

We invited Alex (whom we had never met before we started planning) to officially join our wedding breakfast and the rest of our day as our guest and friend!

We don't know how to write a higher praise than that! What a wonderful, empathetic, beautiful human being.

When you have your heart set on creating a crazy, wonderful, intensely personal, monster of a festival weekender, picking a celebrant that can pull of a ceremony in keeping is a helluva daunting task. Will they get us? Can they deliver a personal ceremony that doesn't come close to generic? Can they mix humour and poignancy and, in our case, a touch of theatrics? Can they mould to fit the occasion we want to create?

With Alex, we got everything we wanted and so much more! She was perfect in every way.

From our first phone call to the face to face meetings and the Skype calls and WhatsApp thread, Alex was with us every step of the way. The time she put into really getting to know who we are as individuals and as a couple was so worth the fee. Not just that she took the time, more that she was committed, flexible and accommodating to getting everything just the way we wanted it. (We'll say it again, a friend we invited for the rest of the day as our guest)

Alex even went the extra mile when we needed help sourcing local suppliers.

She was equally not afraid to calmly guide and steer us when warranted (Mr. G in particular needs reigning in from time to time).

Mr. G, in particular, is very thankful for the squishy hug and calming presence in the hour before the big day!

Alex created the perfect, bonkers, romantic, poignant, comedic, ceremony we dreamed off. To a tee. And when you're as detail-focused as we are, that really is saying something.


What Alexandra says...

Dear Dear Mr and Mrs G
It was an incredible honour and a complete pleasure to work with you. I just adore the way you too understood each other so well and had such visions of what you wanted (and were not afraid to say so! From the moment I got the nod that Mrs G had arrived (in the horse and carriage) and Mr G was skipping his way round the field to the final exit to a personally composed version of Dangerzone. Love you guys! Looking forward to sharing some Gin and (dare I be this cheeky - a naming ceremony in the not too far distant future!)

Stepping into the Breach

"Thank you so much for a wonderful day. The service you put together was truly beautiful and captured us brilliantly. We had the most amazing time."


What Alexandra says...

I am so glad I could help, especially at such short notice. It was a lovely ceremony in a beautiful setting.

What Alexandra says...

Mr and Mrs G this was such an honour and a pleasure. Seeing Mrs G arriving across the field with the Horse and Carriage was tear making from the start.

I thought you were friends

Guest of Wedding Couple C&J

East Sussex | July 2018

When I spoke to Alex after the ceremony I thought she was a personal friend. I thought she had known C&J forever. I cannot believe she only met them about three months ago. The ceremony was so completely "them".


What Alexandra says...

Ooooh - thank-you. Working with and getting to know C&J was brilliant. They had such a vision of what they wanted and being part of their journey was just fantastic. What an amazing entrance they both made! I loved every minute and am really honoured they chose me.

Our babies naming ceremony

Jacqueline Attwood

Iford, East Sussex | June 2018

Alexandra was the perfect celebrant for our babies naming ceremony. Right from the moment we spoke on the phone to the ceremony itself she put her heart and soul into our special day... she was great with communication and was very enthusiastic to make our day special.. which it was and so many fond memories. There is so much work involved in planning a ceremony and Alexandra spoke in detail with us to arrange the ceremony and gave us lots of additional help to find a venue and write our promises. We highly recommend Alexandra as your celebrant.


What Alexandra says...

Dear Jacqui
Thank you so much. It was such a lovely ceremony and an honour to lead for such a special little person.
Love Alex

If you like a bit of theatre - I say bring it on! But if you want to keep it simple then that is completely fine.

Everyone I talk to tells me I should have been a councillor.
