WEDDINGS & VOW RENEWALS

CORNWALL & DEVON 

Make a Free-Spirited, Fun & Meaningful Ceremony the HEART of Your Celebrant Wedding or Vow Renewal

BESPOKE & LAID-BACK CEREMONIES

Entrusting the creation and delivery of your ceremony to an experienced, caring, calm-yet-quirky 5* professional – ME! – makes total sense!

Whether yours is a barefoot elopement or high end hotel wedding, I’ll get to know you and ensure your ceremony totally reflects you and your wishes.

My magical and unforgettable ceremonies often involve buckets of laughter! I dress to suit your vibe – whether in jumpsuits and fluffy gilets and sparkly boots or in ‘dress ups’, I’m totally there…

Working with couples from every walk of life is a joy as I embrace diversity in all its forms. Being part of one of the first same-sex, English-themed, Canadian weddings in 2004 was epic – with a fabulous blessing from ‘HRH’ and cheerleading pom poms to shake…I LOVED it!

Couples who love to laugh and work with me as a team are my tribe! Everything else can fall into place after that, truly…

CHOOSE ANY SYMBOLIC ELEMENTS

 

Unity candles, sand blends, loving cups, cocktails, broom jumping, beer blending, tea ceremonies – these and more are always on offer! Any  ‘props’ I own are free  for you to borrow, including an outdoor PA. As a qualified Aromatherapist, I can even offer gorgeous hand / foot-washing, oil-blending  and anointing ceremonies.

I weave and gift  Celtic ‘Eternity Knot’ cords if a Handfasting is your thing. My four-coloured logo braid reflects my Celtic heritage and brand – RED symbolic of love, BLUE-sky dreams, YELLOW for joy and GREEN for groundedness and earth connections. I also weave cords in other colours and materials.

My Independent Wedding ceremonies are blissfully unfettered by legal procedures or restrictions – Vow Renewals are always non-legal.

A five-minute ‘Simple’ Registrar declaration of marriage on a separate day covers your legals – about 46 words at a fee of around £60! Registrars MUST provide these office declarations, even if only expensive suite options seem available.

Keep the boring bits from your WEDDING DAY – with rings, vows, ceremonial certificates etc… ALL saved until the ceremony with me.

My ceremonies allow ANY words, music and symbolic elements in ANY part of a Licensed or Unlicensed venue or other location, indoors or out  –  ‘(no no no no no no) THERE’S NO LIMITS’ – even alcohol  toasts or loving cups are allowed!

All this may well cost way less than an unknown attending Registrar’s ‘cut and paste’ ceremony.

Let’s get CREATIVE!

MY 10 STEPS TO YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY HEAVEN

(in addition to a cracking ceremony, of course…)

1. A HELLO meeting to see if we click!

2. A Contract & your Booking Fee secure your date and I start planning.

3. I supply guidance, suggestions and notes to help YOU make decisions.

4. I liaise with your planner/venue and scope your location.

5. I get to know you via meeting/s & questionnaires - whatever suits you!

6. You pay your second, final payment when the draft ceremony is ready.

7. We review and edit this draft fully as a team so you are totally happy!

8. I help with Vow advice/a Vow Workshop for meaningful vows.

9. I meet your entourage to review choreography and support readers.

10. On the day, I arrive early to ensure all is well and brief your guests. I help post-ceremony too!

FEES – A truly personalised, ‘from scratch’ wedding ceremony entails 20 to 30 hours of meetings, planning, writing, choreography, travelling and editing. Mine is not a Registrar or Budget Celebrant ‘cut and paste’ A, B or C option, but a ceremony unique to you. 

‘Simply Bespoke’ – £470 – £570 (weekdays are cheaper) –  actual hello meeting in Cornwall, or a video hello. ALL video meetings needed for a ‘from scratch’ unique service, with guidance on vows, readings, choreography and advice notes to entourage. ECO FRIENDLY & great for destination and elopement ceremonies.

‘Bespoke And Some’ – £670 – everything included in the above with a fully attended wedding rehearsal and a vow-writing tutorial. The whole shebang!

‘Writing Only Ceremony Package’ for just £325 – do you have a fabulous friend or relative who just needs some coaching support to deliver a wonderful ceremony I create? I’ll also happily mentor them in the lead-up to your day for no extra. 

My contract process is clear and simple, sent and agreed via email – a £150 Booking Fee included in the fees secures your date! As only one ceremony is booked per day, I close your date off to other couples and start to work my magic. 

For the ceremony, I travel up to 2 hrs from TR11 at NO extra cost. If you are outside this, I can help to recommend fabulous colleagues more local to you … or we can discuss reasonable accommodation/travel fees! ​

 ​​

Click to Flicka Donkey Sanctuary – 5% of any fee may be sent directly to Flicka

 

MY FEES ALSO INCLUDE:

Replacement Celebrant and other Rebooking Contingencies – we Celebrant colleagues support each other to ensure you are never let down!

Liaison with your Venue/Planner & Photographer to ensure a seamless service and fabulous photos.

Ceremonial Certificate, Vow Cards & a Bound Keepsake Ceremony 

‘Wrap-around’ help with initial housekeeping & helping the photographer assemble guests for confetti etc…

MY MISSION ​​

Every couple will love and remember their wedding ceremony forever! I will go above and beyond to create awesomeness as ‘out there’, traditional, formal or informal as desired.

5* REVIEWS

'ANA CAPTURED US AND OUR RELATIONSHIP PERFECTLY'

We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant, the ceremony was everything we wanted, and the process of planning it with Ana was wonderful. We felt (and so did all of our guests) that she captured us and our relationship perfectly. Everyone spoke about how unique it was and how it was the best ceremony they had seen – pretty awesome!!

Eleanor and Chris, Driftwood Spars

'A WONDERFUL, PERSONAL SERVICE FOR OUR WEDDING'

Ana provided a wonderful, personal service for our wedding celebration. From the pre event zoom calls to the readings on the day everything was as we’d hoped. We’ve had many people let us know how well they feel the ceremony went. This wouldn’t have been possible without Ana’s help.

Ben and Krissi Kirby, Knightor Winery

'ANA CREATED A BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY'

Ana was fantastic, she created a beautiful ceremony! It was really special, and loads of our friends and family said how well she captured the two of us.

She also sent the script to us afterwards which will be lovely to read it back at a later date.

I would highly recommend Ana as a celebrant for a wedding. Thank you so much, Ana! Xxx

Josie and Storm Bannon, Princeton Hall, Dartmoor

'THANK YOU ANA!'

‘Thank you Ana, we really had the most special day. We had lots of comments about how lovely the service was and how nice it was to hear such personal vows, so thank you for all your help and support. I also had comments about how well coordinated your outfit was so good planning there!’
