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 develops over time and is not finalised until you are totally happy.
What Type of Ceremony – ‘Celebrant-Led’
You may have heard of Humanist, secular or non-religious ceremonies which are all growing in popularity. A ‘Celebrant-led’ ceremony takes things a stage further and recognises we live in a complex multi-cultural world of grey areas where one-size does not fit all.
We are ‘Independent Celebrants’ – not priests, rabbis, or pastors and we do not offer religious faith ceremonies, but unlike a Humanist celebrants independent celebrants are free blend in a religious prayer, hymn or other symbolic aspects that may be important in a couple’s life. Each ceremony is written from scratch, with elements and ideas drawn from the couple, as well as any symbolism they’d like to include – for instance, the inclusion of Celtic hand-fasting, the use of a Welsh love-spoon, sealing your promises using a Scottish ‘quaich’, the lighting of a unity candle, sand ceremony or breaking of a glass… to name but a few.
How we work
We are here to do the work. We start by learning about ‘your story’ how you met, fell in love, what you love about your partner and hopes and dreams for the future.
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”.
