Celebrant Ceremonies

Celebrant Ceremony.jpg
  • Are you looking for a place of beauty for your Wedding or Civil Partnership or any celebration ceremony, but don’t want to feel restricted with venues?

  • Do you feel uninspired with the standard, mass-produced wedding, where the same words for every couple are often simply read from a book?

  • A celebrant can create a ceremony for you that expresses your love and commitment to each other in a totally unique, personalised and meaningful way?

Your Choice, Your Voice, Your Ceremony


Caroline Stratford is a Civil Celebrant and holds a Certificate in Marriage and Family Celebrancy  and is a  member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.


You have complete freedom to write your own personal vows and include any readings or even prayers of

any faith, music of your choice and inclusion of any family, friends (or even a special pet).


We can stand under the trees,

on top of a hill, on a beach,

or even under the stars. 

This is your special day and we have no restrictions....

There are a wide range of lovely ideas to incorporate into your celebration:

  • Hand Fasting:        Traditional promise made between a couple for a year and a day -   the simple     ceremony involves 'tying' of hands with a cord, ceremonial cloth or ribbons to symbolise the joining together.

  • Sand Ceremony:     The couple (with combined families) pour two or more different colours of sand into a special vessel to create a beautiful work of art and memento to treasure.

  • Candle Ceremony:    Unity Candles are a common ritual for weddings - two tapered thin candles  are used to light one large candle to represent the merging of two lives.

Lots of other ideas:

  • Rose Ceremony

  • Wine Ceremony

  • Breaking of Glass

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas.


I am happy to travel to you.

We can also offer our own venue  'The Mule Shed'  or our  farm fields.   (Please see main Web Page for details)

Charges start from £250.00 - includes planning meetings and full personal ceremony.

(This can be done at any time - mid week is very cost effective) before or after your celebration and this leaves your main family and friends celebration day much less stressful.
