Offer an alternative to religious ceremonies

We plan and conduct personalised non-religious ceremonies that combine a personal touch with a strong sense of ritual. Our celebrants can provide ceremonies to acknowledge all life celebrations and significant events: from wedding ceremonies to family milestones and funerals

Help tell your story in your very own way

We believe in preserving the right of personal choice and decision in ceremonies and work closely with you in creating a ceremony that reflects your tastes and values. We achieve this through a bespoke ceremony script paired with your choices for readings and music and so much more.

Deliver an inclusive ceremony on your terms

As independent celebrants we can conduct a ceremony anywhere you want, indoors or outdoors. Due to our international backgrounds, we are capable to deliver the ceremony in Italian, English, or both simultaneously if you have international guests. Everyone should be fully included in the proceedings of your celebration.

“Clarissa made a huge effort to get to know both of us and this translated into the perfect, personalised wedding ceremony. We had guests from both Ireland and Italy at our wedding and Clarissa did an outstanding job in managing the cultural and language differences and ensured all of our guests could follow the ceremony. The ceremony was one of the aspects of our wedding where we have received the most compliments from our guests. It was the perfect mix of humour and emotion and this is down to the excellent job Clarissa has done in creating and delivering our ceremony. We could not be happier with the final result

Aim for good chemistry

Delivering a personalised, heartfelt ceremony that feels authentic and meaningful requires a high level of compatibility between you and your celebrant. You should take your time to find who you feel comfortable with and who has the right personality to match yours.

Opt for professionalism and proper training

A professionally trained celebrant is capable of maintaining truth, accuracy, dignity and integrity no matter the ceremony type. All of our team members strongly value preparation and professionalism, and as such have all completed training courses as celebrants.
