EXPERIENCE

There are times in your life where a special event takes place and you want to celebrate it with your friends and family! Why not celebrate the way YOU want to! I am a fully trained professional Civil Celebrant who can write and perform wedding celebration ceremonies, renewal of vows and naming ceremonies.

Today we have freedom to choose, when it comes to celebrations like marriages, namings, renewal of vows and commitment ceremonies.

You are no longer bound by restrictions. You can have the celebration of your dreams, designed by you and performed by me. Your personalities can shine through and the ceremony will be truly about you and your loved ones.

I cover Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Dorset and parts of Sussex, but I am happy to travel anywhere and even abroad, in order to make your day perfect!

CEREMONY STYLE

Namings - When a child comes into the world, we may want to celebrate this occasion with our friends and family. A lot of people choose to have a christening, but for those who do not want to make it a purely religious occasion, there is a naming ceremony which is more of a welcoming celebration.

The naming ceremony, often for new babies, can be adapted for older children, for instance for step families joining each other, or welcoming an adopted child into your family.

Weddings - In order to have a wedding or civil marriage celebration you have to have been legally married at the Register Office – you can follow this with a celebration of your choice. You can then attend a venue of your choice. Therefore, you can have your celebration at home, in a pub, in a field, on a boat or in a hotel – wherever you wish!

There are no time restrictions on when you can have the celebration either. You can have a theme to the celebration and if you wanted – it could be fancy dress! The world is your oyster – enjoy it!

The ceremony can include vows written by yourselves, or rituals including a handfasting (ceremonial tying of hands), symbolic lighting of a candle, a sand ceremony or a sharing cup ritual. I can ask that the rings be blessed or you can just exchange rings or gifts (if you have no rings). The rituals would be included in the ceremony.

Renewal of vows - The renewal of vows is a lovely bespoke ceremony for couples who wish to reaffirm their vows.

Perhaps you have been together for a significant amount of time, or been through life changing events, but have become closer than ever. Whatever the reason, I can help and guide you towards the ceremony that is right for you. You may want to repeat your original vows or make new ones, the choice is completely yours.

Hi Abi
I hope you are well.
I don't think we ever contacted you to say a formal thank you for being our celebrant at our wedding vow renewal in September, sorry. We are really grateful to you for conducting the ceremony for us, we loved it and had a really special day. Lots of our friends and family commented on how lovely the ceremony was too.


Thanks again
Best wishes
Sarah

We wanted to say THANK YOU for such a wonderful ceremony and for ALL of your help with the girls, Annabelle particularly at lunch. You were so kind and we were so happy you stayed to enjoy the day. Everyone thought you were so lovely and held a beautiful ceremony, which you did.

You are such a wonderful person and I am so very happy I met and found you!

Toby & Melissa's Wedding

Toby & Melissa Doman

Deans Court, Bournemouth | July 2017

"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Abi to create heart-felt vows to celebrate our special wedding day. Abi was extremely responsive, thoughtful and reliable from start to finish. She made the challenge of planning our UK wedding from our base in Singapore very easy (and fun!) - holding regular Skypes and reviewing our edited vows over email. Her long experience as a Celebrant was vital as we planned our big day - from reminding us about rehearsals, readers' notes, creating prompt cards for us and even providing a candle to remember past family that could not be present on the day."

Why Choose Abi

My two biggest strengths are getting on with people and my organisational skills that I have learned through my past work experience. I am a warm, caring person and I try to bring these qualities into every celebration ceremony that I undertake.

The wishes of each individual are very important and I take full account of these requirements for every ceremony. I am a good listener and can use this skill to write you a special script for your ceremony.

I can think of a few events in my life when a civil celebration would have been my first choice, including the christening of my own children. I now come from a family of celebrants, which has enabled me a wider scope of celebrations and more involvement.

I look forward to discussing your requirements.
