“There were cheers, tears and everything in between…”

Celebrate life with a totally unique ceremony!


Whether you are celebrating a wedding, vow renewal or welcoming new life with a naming ceremony or blessingway, you want to do it in a way that is both deeply meaningful and is a true reflection of you – totally and utterly – and is full of joy and laughter into the bargain!

I love to show people what is possible and I travel across Kent, Surrey and Sussex to bring your dreams to life… (and have been known to be persuaded to travel further!)

Having someone light up for you and feel as deeply for this day as you do is the most beautiful experience…”

What do I do for you?

I listen to your story and, with it, I lovingly create the perfect ceremony for you.

We are all unique and so are our stories, our values, our beliefs and what makes us light up. Working with me, you will be able to honour that uniqueness – as celebrants can perform a ceremony anywhere, this will be from the venue that you choose, through to the rituals and loved ones you include, to every word that’s said… it’s all about creating something that makes your heart sing.

“To anyone reading this and wondering if Alex is right for their special ceremony – YOUR SEARCH IS COMPLETE! She combines a warmth of spirit and an awesome sense of humour and realism to create a truly unique ceremony.”

Ellie & Tim

“There wasn’t a dry eye in the room in the ceremony from guests or us! We laughed, we cried and we got to express our love for one another in the most special way thanks to the beautiful words that Alex put together.”

Amy & Adam

“For anyone looking for a heart-centred, personal and poignant ceremony; Alex is the person you are looking for to guide and support you throughout the journey.”


I’ll be with you every step

Creating a unique ceremony is truly amazing and full of so many possibilities… but it can feel overwhelming

That’s where I can help you navigate through it all. By exploring together exactly what your ceremony will mean to you, the values you hold and the ideas you may already have, I can guide you through all aspects of your ceremony.

From unique wedding readings to classic wedding readings; from music to walk down the aisle to to music to leave the ceremony to; from handfasting rituals to family unity rituals; from writing your own vows to involving your loved ones… I’ll be there for you at every step.

If your ceremony is in Kent and the South East, I can also share with you ideas for wonderful suppliers. There are fabulous venues for all sorts of ceremonies, such as Oak Tree Barn, Salomon’s Estate, Wise Wedding Venue, The Lost Village of Dode and many more and, because your ceremony is led by a celebrant, your back garden, your favourite restaurant, campsite, beach can also be added to the list…! I also have links with fabulous florists, photographers, cake makers, wedding planners… just ask!
