'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!'

Ana has been amazing to work with, she has taken all our wishes and created a beautiful service which was truly personal and meaningful to us. We had several meetings where she was able to understand our couple dynamics and gathered lots of personal info and our little quirks. Thank you Ana! Highly recommend!
'Ana conducted our ceremony, after we finally decided what we all wanted to say - we were difficult to please but she never lost patience! She was very helpful in the planning stages and, with 20+ young children in the ceremony, she was never put off what she was trying to do. Very professional but approachable, Ana clearly cares about every couple. Thank you!'
We cannot speak highly enough about Ana as our celebrant. Her online profile gave us a very accurate picture of who she is. She spent a lot of time interviewing us to understand our backgrounds and how we came together. She crafted this into a beautiful script which was revised several times between us before it was perfect. The ceremony was so moving; Ana's delivery was warm and personal. We had so many compliments about Ana from our guests. Also, nicely printed texts on the day to keep.'

'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.'
As a qualified Aromatherapist, I can also include essential oils in ceremonies! How about a ceremonial handwashing and handmassage before your rings are placed?
'Ana was absolutely wonderful as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony in June. Ana was so flexible, full of ideas and accommodating in our needs and wants. She helped make our ceremony personal to us, and exactly what we wanted on our day. Ana was instantly a great fit for us, so many people commented on how lovely our ceremony was, and how wonderfully clear and professional but fun and personable she was during our day. Thankyou Ana for being such a special part of our day and accommodating all our wants and desires including having our pet pooch at our feet throughout the ceremony. Thank you x

I have extensive experience of creating and managing ceremonies and events! Nothing daunts me - I adapt calmly to your needs in planning as well as any ad-hoc changes needed on the day.
I happily incorporate elements from different cultures into ceremonies, and work totally without prejudice.
I've lived and travelled extensively and respect everyone's right to live happily and without judgement. It was BRILLIANT to be part of one of the first same-sex, English-themed, Canadian weddings in 2004 - with a fabulous blessing from ‘HRH'! I also support sustainable weddings, so readily help with eco-ideas.

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!
A BEAUTIFUL ceremony with me includes words, music and symbolic elements in ANY part of a Licensed or Unlicensed venue.
Registry Office Packages make money for Councils and Registrars are sadly not given time or training to make personal ceremonies. Talk to me about how you keep your legal and ceremonial separate and totally MAGICAL!
