Beautiful ceremonies to renew your vows
Renewing your vows is the perfect way to celebrate a milestone anniversary or any other occasion.
We’ve got you covered with everything from small ceremonies to large ones, and we can help you plan every detail of your ceremony so it’s as unique as you are.
Whether celebrating an anniversary or wanting to mark a milestone occasion or your journey of love with a small or large ceremony I offer advice on content, music, readings and poems - To make ceremonies as individual as you.
A renewal of vows or a blessing ceremony can be a beautiful way to cement what your marriages means to you both in a way that’s precious to you.
You don't have to be married for years before renewing your vows! If it's been less than 5 years since your wedding day then this is the perfect opportunity for a renewal ceremony that will make all those who were there on the first go-round feel like they're part of something special again.
And if it's been more than five years? Well then this is just another excuse for some new photos in front of a beautiful backdrop of choosing!
Let us know what kind of celebration you want and we'll do our best to make sure that happens!

What would you like to know?
Are you insured?
Yes we are fully insured with public liability insurance.
Is a Celebrant-led ceremony legal?
Not at the moment, but there is consultation currently undergoing to review the marriage law given it is out of date ie discrepancies.
Is a Celebrant wedding ceremony less real?
Certainly not! Signing the register is simply signing the legal paperwork. In my opinion, the most meaningful part of your wedding day is the words and rituals you pledge to each other, declaring your love and commitment in front of your family and friends. We cross our fingers the Government will agree to update the Marriage Law to open it up to choice.
Do you have to legalise your marriage?
No. A celebrant-led wedding ceremony celebrates your love and relationship, there is no need to legalise it if you do not wish to.
What do we need to do if we wish to have “legal” marriage?
Naturally, a wedding with a Minister or Registrar will be lovely, but neither can offer a 100% bespoke and personalised ceremony that couples will get with a Celebrant-led ceremony. They will not be able to offer rituals, nor outdoor services. Couples tend to sort their legalities (ie obtain marriage certificate within basic meeting beforehand with a Registrar, then have a personalised ceremony with Celebrant.
We wish to be “legally” married, what do I need to do?
Speak to me around the type of ceremony you dream of and look at dates. It's important to find the right Celebrant, to ensure the Celebrant is in tune with you.
Find the Registry office that you wish to be “married” – in other words where you wish to be legally married. This can be any county I understand. Telephone the district council office, go to births, deaths & marriages, and telephone that department. Explain that you wish to book a BASIC STATUTORY LEGAL WEDDING CEREMONY (you do not need ceremony where you exchange vows etc; just the simple marriage ceremony). Majority of Council Registrars do not offer this service outside of their registry office, but some do ie in a hotel that has a wedding licence. You need to find out when they have availability and time, and book it. At the time of booking, you will need to pay the fees. Likely this booking is done over the telephone, as well as your payment.
The Registrar fees you are likely to pay for the basic statutory legal wedding ceremony is Registrar’s booking fee, their statutory basic ceremony fee and marriage certificate.
Now you have your date of wedding ceremony, you need to GIVE NOTICE OF INTENT at the Registry office in the district where you live. Currently, the earliest you can do this is 3 months before the date of your marriage ceremony, but it MUST be done before 29 days. You will need to complete forms, and state where and when you are going to have your marriage ceremony ie legally married (not your celebrant wedding ceremony). The Registrar will charge fees for the notice of intent to the Registrar is £35 per person
(to note – you will have up to 12 months to then hold your legal marriage ceremony with registrar from date of intent)
When you attend your basic statutory marriage ceremony you will need to bring with you:
Evidence to show nationality, address, and if married previously that you are divorced and able to marry again. Documents for example valid passports, driving licence with home address, and divorce certificate (if appropriate).You will also need to take two witnesses with you.
What happens if I need to cancel or postpone my wedding ceremony with you as Celebrant?
If it is because of lockdown, then likely to be no charge and you will be able to rebook another date.
If you cancel outside of “lockdown” you are likely to lose some monies
Do Registrars create bespoke wedding ceremonies?
Not in the sense of what a Celebrant can. Many Registrars offer either their traditional wedding ceremony or their “bespoke” one. Their bespoke package offers 30 minutes of
- Vows (from chosen resource)
- Up to 4 pieces of music – 2 of those will be used for signing of the register.
- Exchange of rings
How is a Celebrant’s wedding ceremony different?
- Can be conducted anywhere ie inside and outdoors (registrars can only conduct in registry office or licensed indoor venue)
- Any time day or night, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
- Can include any religion(s), spirituality, other beliefs, or none at all
- Any music (and amount)
- Any style ie traditional, celtic/spiritual/pagan, humour etc, wording, content (its all about you two, and your love story)
- Include any poems, references, blessings, stories.
- Any rituals*
- Vows (written from scratch by Celebrant, or couple)
- Signing of bespoke wedding ceremony certificate
- Include any guests or children or pets within the ceremony itself (if desired)
- Anything goes!
What rituals do you perform (example of Rituals by Amanda-Louise)*
These all point to forever love and harmony together, some celtic, some modern and can all be personalised to the couple and ceremony style.

Can I have my Celebrant-led Ceremony at home?
Yes, if you want to. We can do this anywhere, so whether its up a mountain, on water, by lake/beach, or even in your garden – we are only restricted by your imagination!
Do you have a contract?
Yes, all my services have terms and conditions and agreement, which gives you security of booking, and data protection.
Each element will have its own agreement/contract. Its shows Im a sole trader, registered with Inland Revenue.
At present I am not VAT registered.
What is a Commitment Ceremony?
It’s very much like a wedding ceremony but it has no legal standing.
Sometimes a couple will choose to have a commitment ceremony if one (or both) are still legally married and going through a lengthy divorce, but they want to make a spiritual commitment to their new partner.
Do you conduct same-sex ceremonies?
How far do you travel?
I am mainly booked in Somerset & the West Country as my main residence is on Exmoor but subject to availability I can travel further if required.
Where can I hold my ceremony?
Do you conduct themed weddings?
Absolutely Yes but without the ‘cheese’.
What other types of ceremonies do you offer?
I can create any ceremony appropriate as you journey through life, for example baby naming, birthdays, weddings, blessings, pagan rituals, wedding vow renewals, anniversaries, moving home, coming of age, gender, change of name, divorce, funerals, memorials, pet funerals and officiating opening of new buildings/businesses to name but a few!
