EXPERIENCE

My inspiration to change career began when I was invited to be a guest at a Celebrant led wedding in Australia , which I found to be just magical - it was set in a Winery overlooking the Pacific Ocean, at sunset, and my lovely friends had a romantic and totally personal ceremony which included the story of their own relationship, the milestones, the challenges, and their personally written vows and promises.

I knew then that I wanted to get involved in creating ceremonies just as romantic, personal, inclusive, and meaningful. In 2011 I trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants as I wanted to write and create ceremonies that celebrated life's major milestones! Since then I have created over 150 romantic ceremonies, held indoors and outdoors, in the London, Greater London and Home Counties areas and in Germany.

My ceremonies are often described as sincere, romantic, relaxed, and fun, and I can include religious, spiritual and cultural elements which respect the faiths and beliefs and values of my couples. I am excited to share that two of my recent wedding ceremonies were featured by Rock My Wedding, and can be read here: http://www.rockmywedding.co.uk/kate-peppy/
Http://www.rockmywedding.co.uk/Abigail-andrew

I am based in both London and Berlin and able to offer ceremonies in English/Englisch and German/Deutsch in several combinations.

Please feel free to contact me for a personal consultation and discussion about your ideas and plans and see if I am the Celebrant you need for your special day!

CEREMONY STYLE

I enjoy creating romantic, heartfelt, loving ceremonies that combine the stories and beliefs and values of my couples and their families. My ceremonies are often traditional but with a modern twist, as well as new rituals and combining faith if wished. I have for example created several blended ceremonies which have included blessings, hymns and religious readings, working with members of the clergy when invited - it make me happiest when I know my couple will have a totally unique ceremony that includes all their ideas and style in the place and at the time they choose. I have conducted "handfasting/" ceremonies, and "unity" rituals such as Beer, Wine, Rose, Ring Warming, Candle, Pebble, Hand-washing and other lovely customs as well as involving guests and families!

I also offer Vow Renewal Ceremonies which acknowledge and appreciate the years shared in marriage, and includes what they are looking forward to, and also Naming Ceremonies which welcome a new little person into the family and wider community.

Contact me to discuss any other types of occasions too, - as a Celebrant I am able to create ceremony for Special Anniversaries, Graduation, Moving Home, Corporate renaming, and cleansing and re-energising ceremonies, for those who are divorcing, or at a major crossroads in life. The aim of ceremony is to feel grounded, secure, and positive, and these energies and memories can be really powerful. Let me help you if I can - there is no obligation at all.

Yvonne was just fantastic. Clear communication throughout and we really felt she took the time to get to know us and to tailor the ceremony to our characters and wishes. All the guests thought the ceremony was fantastic - and there were a few quirky little additions which made it truly special. You can tell Yvonne really loves her job!

What Yvonne says...

Hi Abbie and Andrew, Thank you so much for your kind words. I thought it was simply gorgeous and you looked so beautiful ! I hope you had a wonderful day and evening!

I cant recommend Yvonne enough

Chantell and Simon

The Round Chapel, Hackney | May 2018

Yvonne, thank you for putting together such a wonderful personalised wedding ceremony for us! You weren't given much time (about a week if I remember rightly) to pull everything together, from chatting with us to see if we were the right fit, to writing a personalised ceremony which we wouldn't change in a million years, even given more time. We will always think of you fondly and I have been telling a lot of people about you and what you do! I wish you every success with your business and to anyone looking for a warm, loving and caring celebrant to conduct their ceremony I can't recommend Yvonne enough.


What Yvonne says...

Aw Chantell thank you and Simon too for being such an awesome twosome - the love you share is beautiful to see!! I wish you every happiness!

You made our day so special!

Tami and Sam

Shotley Vineyard, Shotley, Suffolk | May 2018

Thank you so much again for the wonderful ceremony, you made our day really special and the way you performed the ceremony was just perfect. We’ve had so many positive comments from our family and friends, both English and German - it felt very personal and was exactly how we imagined our wedding to be like.


What Yvonne says...

It was a pleasure to work with you on your ceremony and so wonderful to be able to bring it to you in both English and German! The Wine Ceremony was beautiful! I wish you every happiness in the future!

Yvonne went above and beyond..

Sade

London | June 2018

I feel so strongly about leaving a review for Yvonne, as it is rarely the case anymore that people are appreciated for just being selfless and kindhearted. We reached out to Yvonne about possibly hosting our wedding celebration in a few weeks' time, with little notice, and despite her not being available, I just did not expect to receive such care and guidance from her in helping us find someone who was available and suitable. She'd no reason to give us any of her time but sensing my stress after having our original plans fall apart (without even giving her much details), she took to reaching out to her network of celebrants to help us find someone for our day, as well as informing us of what to look out for when choosing. We've not much knowledge of non-legal weddings and would've spent much precious time doing some research before being able to secure anything, but we have now found someone off her recommendation, and are now secured with much peace of mind in our find, thanks to Yvonne's support.


What Yvonne says...

Even though I was unable to assist Sade as I was committed already on her date, I could tell that she was totally stressed about losing her celebrant and wanted to help her as quickly as I could, and am proud and grateful that my celebrant colleagues all responded quickly to her, helping her to made a swift decision.

Lucky Yvonne was our Celebrant

Eleanor and Sam

Parent's home, garden area - outdoor handfasting | August 2016

We would highly recommend Yvonne as a wedding celebrant. It is such an important thing to get right and we were so delighted that someone had recommended Yvonne to us. She instantly put us at ease with her friendly emails and relaxed telephone conversations which allowed Yvonne to get an idea of the sort of people we were and what kind of ceremony we were hoping for. She was in regular contact and really seemed to care that we had a ceremony that fitted us as a couple. We felt that the service that Yvonne provides is excellent value for money and we feel lucky that we have some wonderful memories of our day thanks to Yvonne.


What Yvonne says...

Eleanor and Sam you were the perfect couple and your handfasting ceremony was a pure delight for me to perform. Seeing you both holding hands with such love, really touched me, as does your review. Wishing you every happiness as a new family!

Everything went perfectly!

Holly and James

The Montague on the Gardens Hotel, Bloomsbury, London | July 2016

We can't thank Yvonne enough for the brilliant job she did as our wedding celebrant. Right from the start she worked with us to create a bespoke ceremony and all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. Everything went perfectly!


What Yvonne says...

It was a real pleasure to meet you and I loved how you had practiced your "Sand Ceremony" using coffee and sugar crystals :)

Graceful, Elegant & beautiful

Janna and Chris

The Rose Garden, Greenwich Park | August 2017

Yvonne took on our last minute elopement just days before we said I do. She was so graceful and eloquent. With some brief communication, she designed such beautiful vows for us that came across as she knew us well. All of this was done basically overnight! She was so accommodating and made our special day very romantic. The vows she write for us touched our hearts and brought is both to happy tears. I couldn't be happier with our choice in using Yvonne!

Amazing Officiant thank you!

Yvonne Beck

Gaynes Park, Essex | May 2017

Yvonne is an amazing wedding officiant. She did our ceremony in May at a beautiful venue called Gaynes Park. She took the time to get to know us and ensured to incorporate everything we wanted on the day. We will recommend her over and over again as she is 5 star at what she does. Mr & Mrs Miller

Thank you so much!

Yvonne Beck

Ham Yard Hotel, London | April 2017

Yvonne was an amazing celebrant for our wedding, I wouldn't hesitate recommending her. From the first phone call she put us at ease, she listened to our story and the style of our wedding and designed a ceremony that fitted our day perfectly. On the day Yvonne delivered the ceremony in an engaging way, guiding us through and making us feel comfortable and confident. I'm so pleased we chose to use a celebrant for our day, it was on of the best decisions we made and added important personal touches to our wedding.

Beautiful Ceremony thank you!

Yvonne Beck

Queens House, Greenwich | July 2017

We just used Yvonne as our celebrant in our London wedding in July 2017. She did such a wonderful job incorporating our personalities, the stories in our relationship, validating and respecting both of our wishes and desires into a seamless, beautiful, and personal ceremony. It was a muti-cultural wedding (English and American) and Yvonne was able to combine both of our cultures and traditions easily. I would certainly recommend her for anyone who is looking for a personal wedding ceremony that truly represents you as a couple.

Thank you Yvonne!

Parent's garden in my home | June 2017

Yvonne was the celebrant for our wedding which we wanted to be intimate, personal and low-key. We met with Yvonne first by Skype and then face-to-face so she really got to know us as a couple. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and gave us guidance on writing our own vows. On the day itself she was very professional but also mingled with our guests in a lovely way. We would definitely recommend working with Yvonne - she clearly loves her job and it was a pleasure having her as our celebrant.
