Renewal of Vows

Renewing your vows is a perfect way to reaffirm your commitment to one another. Vow renewal ceremonies are often less formal and more inclusive occasions than weddings and couples often decide to involve their children and/or grandchildren who read poems, sing songs and perform readings at the ceremony.


Baby Naming

Welcoming a new baby into the family is certainly a time for celebration. Many parents want to mark the occasion with a non-religious ‘welcome’ ceremony involving family and friends. We work together to make your naming occasion truly memorable and special.

Stuart and Andy

Colette officiated at our wedding recently and I would have no hesitation recommending her. From the start, Colette listened to our wishes and built a wonderful bespoke ceremony which made our day very special. Colette’s warm personality shone through on the day and we couldn’t have wished for more. Colette is easy to do business with and I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Colette!

Charlotte and Gary

Our ceremony was a really special part of our day. Colette got to know all the little details about our lives, when and how we met, and what’s important to us in our lives together. She wrote our story and it made us laugh and cry with all the personal touches. On the day the time just flew by!

Our guests all commented on how lovely the service was, and it just couldn’t have been more perfect.

Lizzie and Dean

Colette saved our day! We had to find a celebrant to replace ours within 24 hours of our wedding. She listened to what we wanted, and picked up all the details quickly. We then had to run inside half way through the ceremony because the heavens opened, and Colette managed the situation well while adding her personal touch to the ceremony. The guests also thought she was great. Lizzie and Dean xx

Tiffany & Michael

” I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts…..
the ceremony was honestly such a highlight for me and regardless of restrictions I wouldn’t have done it any other way.
Our guests were also really complimentary about you.
Thank you!”

Ashley and Ross

What a magical day! Colette was a joy to work with in every way. She was calming, patient, inspiring, helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. In light of recent circumstances, I can tell you from experience that you must have a celebrant-led wedding! Colette will give you a truly magical ceremony to cherish all your married lives together. A very big THANK YOU from the happy couple – Ashley and Ross xxx

Debs and Trevor

We just wanted to say a massive Thank You for our renewal of vows ceremony yesterday. We were both so impressed by your professionalism, flexibility (it would have helped if Debs hadn’t sprained her ankle the day before!) and the wording of our ceremony was awesome (tear-jerking)! All in all, a fantastic day.

Chris and Rosie

We asked Colette to be our celebrant for our wedding at very short notice due to last minute complications with our arrangements and Colette saved the ceremony and made our wedding so special! Colette is a superb celebrant, providing a high quality and personalised service from start to finish. She really spent time getting to know us, resulting in a celebration that was memorable and full of personal touches. We are so grateful to Colette for helping make our special day so perfect.
