I became an Independent Civil Celebrant, training with the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC) after working within the bereavement sector as I liked the way it offered families the chance to celebrate the life of their loved one, while also being able to say goodbye in their own way.  

 

I wanted to offer families a personal and special service, which could be peaceful or celebratory, could still include a religious element if the family wished, but would still be focused around their loved one, the life they lived and their beliefs, so it really was a celebration of their life.

 

As a celebrant I also wanted to help couples and new parents celebrate their love and new addition to the family with their own unique, personals and special ceremonies whether this was  Wedding Celebrations, Civil Partnership Celebrations, Renewal of Vows, Blessings, Handfasting Ceremonies and Baby Naming Ceremonies.

 

I liked the feedom a Celebrant Ceremony offered because there are no restrictions and they can be performed in any location, indoors or outdoors, at a venue or at a family home and at any time. A ceremony can include a special element such as a handfasting, sand ceremony, or religious element but it is still personal and unique, reflecting the love and life of of a couple or loved one.  Because the legal aspect of a wedding has already taken place a couple can end the ceremony on a  champagne toast or as one of my couples preferred a shot of whisky. To help make a  wedding ceremony truly personal to a  couple, a baby naming about the new addition to the family and a funeral service about a loved one is why I became a celebrant.

 

I personally feel that within any ceremony you should not be restricted on what you can have, it is at the end of the day, ‘your ceremony’ so should be ‘your way’.

 

I am based in Wales in Haverfordwest and travel across Pembrokeshire and south west wales , but am happy to travel further, so if you have found your perfect venue outside of this don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
