Independent Celebrants in France
Professional, Creative, Caring
“We care passionately about working with you to create a tailor-made ceremony that tells your story, engages your guests and is just perfect for you”.
A professional celebrant writes tailor-made ceremony scripts for weddings, elopement or renewal of vows and then officiates the ceremony on-the-day (It is a custom alternative to church service or humanist ceremony). You will work one-to-one with an experienced Independent Celebrant who is creative, caring and registered to work in France. Your script will develop over time and is not finalised until you are totally happy.
Our wedding celebrants display the authority and charisma required to lead the ceremony without taking over. We know when to be at the centre of the ceremony and when our presence should hardly be noticed to allow the couple to express their feelings to each other. We are aware that our role goes far beyond writing a script as our clients expect us to guide them, write their story, convey their emotions and celebrate their union with respect, professionalism, confidence and humour.
How we work?
In short, the role of a professional wedding celebrant is to make sure that you and your guests remember your wedding ceremony as a magical, privileged, timeless, unique moment in your life!
You can be as creative as you like with your wording, your vows, your content and format. You can include any poem, music or reading. You can incorporate some religion if you wish – eg a reading from the Bible, as long as this is read by a family member or friend. This can be very useful for couples coming from different faiths who wish to include certain rituals into the ceremony. Symbolic elements such as the French ribbon ceremony, hand-fasting, the unity candle, ring warming, or sand ceremonies can be used creatively to personalise your ceremony.
We have a private client area on our website, which contains lots of help to think about how you want things to run – a step by step guide, readings, alternative vows, special elements etc.
After one ceremony, an Irish minister said “I have performed and been to many weddings in the course of my life, but your ceremony was the most moving and sincere wedding I have ever attended, be proud of your job in life, and make more people as happy as you have made us today.”

“Thank you for making our wedding such an enjoyable and memorable experience. The ceremony you gave us was wonderfully personal and perfect for us. Our ceremony was beautifully and professionally orchestrated, romantic and intimate, with a sense of occasion. We were very impressed at your calm demeanour during the day, that made us both relax and enjoy the occasion.”

“Thank you for making us feel that we were in the hands of an experienced celebrant who gave our small gathering the shape and form we wanted to formalise our feelings. Your suggestions and small, personalised surprises helped make the day so moving. All our guests commented that they felt a connection to the ceremony and that they were part of it. Because of your sensitivity, genuine sense of romance and understanding of the flow of events, our day was everything we hoped for. For that we will always be greatful and think of you.”
Claire & Lee
“We both wanted to say a massive thank you for the ceremony, all of our friends and family made comments about how beautiful, appropriate to Me and Chris and personal the service you delivered was and it reflected perfectly what we wanted for our wedding day, to stand facing one another saying heartfelt, sincere vows which have a relevance to our relationship, love and beliefs and which we had been able to choose ourselves. It was perfect! The little touches all added to what will be a day we will never forget”.
