Alison Phillips

English Speaking Celebrant

Thank you Alison for providing a beautiful ceremony! Everyone really enjoyed it, and as you could see, I was rather overcome by emotions from start to finish.  We had such a great day.

Selma and Panno

After a successful career in management Alison moved with her husband Roland to France in 2007 to enjoy a less hectic lifestyle. Alison and Roland have been happily married for over thirty-eight years and they have four grown up children and five grandchildren.

While working on the family event hire business, Alison saw many wedding ceremonies in France and noticed that they were all very similar. Then she saw a number of ceremonies conducted by ‘Celebrants in France’ She was impressed that every ceremony was not only moving and emotional but also unique to the couple, their family and friends.

It was as if the profession had chosen her, after training with CIF she has taken to her new career with passion and enthusiasm, utilizing her skills for organising, punctuality and a good listener. People instinctively like and trust Alison and know that she can be relied upon whatever the situation.

So why choose Alison?  She is very caring and attentive towards the wishes of the couples she works with. She is able to put them at their ease and help take any potential stress out of the ceremonial process. She has a genuine interest in helping people and recognizing that listening to their requests is a vital part of ensuring their special day is perfect for them.
