'Happy New Year Ana! Thank you again for making our wedding day very special!! We were delighted with your lovely script and loved the flow and words! Thank you so much for all your fantastic help.'
Shannon and Robert, after their gorgeous, intimate winter ceremony at Lucknam Park, Nr Bath, in December 2017
'Well you reduced us both to tears - my God you’re good! It’s absolutely beautiful - thank you so much.'
L & A's response to the draft script sent for their February Wedding at Ellenborough Park, Cheltenham
Ensure your wedding service is as unique as you are...and is so touching it makes you and your guests cry (tears of happiness)!
A Boho Festival-style Field Ceremony, a Woodland Wedding, Nightclub Nuptials, a Traditional Choice, a Theme Ceremony, a Pub Garden, a truly unique ceremony even in a Licensed Venue ...
You name it, I can help you achieve it!
A Registry Office basic service is a short, low-cost declaration of the legal marriage, without the need to exchange vows, rings etc... A Celebrant Wedding Ceremony in the days before or after this legal declaration means the actual wedding ceremony and ring exchange can take place ANYWHERE, where you are free to say or do what you wish. How much more meaningful is that?
Make your words and service special to you, suited to the budget and number of guests YOU choose.
*script-only & speech-support options also available to vamp up Registrar or Church services
Combined Celebrant/Mistress of Service options possible
Wedding & Vow Renewal Prices
Some of the prices range, depending on your needs and budget. I'm happy to tailor the service to suit your needs and budget. Every service is unique, after all!
Support with and writing-only of vows for couple to deliver (Church/Registrar service) - £60
Additional service words & readings to be read by Registrar/Minister or friend - £110
Meeting, research & writing-only of fully bespoke service to be delivered by third party - £215
FULL SERVICE & SUPPORT Initial liaison, research, planning discussion, bespoke original service, readings' support, rehearsal/venue visit/s & my delivery - £350 - £450 (depending on number of elements and travel/visits needed. We'd discuss your options clearly during your initial enquiry discussion, where you can see if I am the right fit for your special day!)
*IF YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED and wish to make it a legal marriage, add to these the cost of the most basic Registry Office statutory declaration of marriage. This is a 5 minute simple reading of two sentences, with no ceremonial or ring exchange necessary; you would just need two witnesses with you. The fee in most Registry Offices is £57 this year. Please do ask me about this - some Registry Offices need to be chased to release details of / slots for these basic services as they obviously would like more of your business in their more expensive suites with their limited generic ceremony options, but I'm happy to help you secure a slot! This legal declaration can be completed either before or after the wedding ceremony date, as it is in many other countries for all types of weddings.
All prices include an initial, non-returnable booking fee which fixes your date in my diary.
'We used Ana for our wedding last month and could not be happier! She really took time to get to know us and worked with us to create a wedding ceremony that was personal for us as a couple, down to every detail. Nothing was too much and she went above and beyond. We are absolutely over the moon with how it went. Thank you Ana!'

Just a quick message from our “minimoon” in Cheltenham! [😃]
Just like to say thank you so much for everything you did not only on the day but the lead up to the big day as well!
I’m pretty sure without your calming presence and gentle nudges we would have been even more lost and generally confused before the ceremony! You were brilliant, and we both really appreciate everything you did!
