Hello! My name is Barbara Natasegara and I am a celebrant trained and accredited by Humanists UK. I compose and conduct unique, personalised ceremonies for weddings, vow renewals and partnership ceremonies, and namings for children and adults. [Also memorials, funerals or other ceremonies by special request].
I have more than 35 years’ experience working in the field that I am passionate about, that is, Human Rights, inclusion, equality and diversity. I worked for 20 years as the CEO of a charity called Safer Wales.
I became a Humanist Ceremonies celebrant because I believe that everyone has the right to celebrate the big life events and milestones in their lives in whatever way she or he chooses.
I will work with you to create a unique personalised ceremony for the event / milestone you and your family are celebrating. Please see the other pages for more about each ceremony.
If you would like to talk more about the kind of ceremony you might like, please get in contact with me by email or telephone in the first instance, so we can set up a meeting or conversation.
Thank you Annie-Starr and Danny for allowing me to share the video of their special day. Their beautiful venue was the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
“Thank you again for everything it was so lush and you made it so special for us all!” Annie-Starr and Danny
“Thanks again for helping to make this a really lovely day – everyone commented how much the ceremony just completely captured Polly and Charlie – slightly chaotic (what with the rain blowing through the doors!) but really affectionate and welcoming. Just perfect! ” Ben (Polly’s brother.)
“Thank you for all the work you did towards making our wedding truly magical. We both found the service meaningful and moving, to say nothing of the deluge of compliments on your delivery received from UK and US guests alike! We are very glad we met you!” Will and Charlotte.
“Thank you so much for everything! The ceremony was perfect and you helped to make it so simple and personal for us.” Naz and Lydia
“Thank you for conducting our (vow renewal) ceremony. We couldn’t have done it without you. It was just as we wanted, although I was hoping I was not going to cry! Every one enjoyed it and it will be a day we will treasure just as we do our wedding day. Many thanks for everything.” Angela and Andrew
“Thanks Barbara, it was such a wonderful day and night!” Beth and Amanda
“Thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony you did for us. So many people have commented on how personal it was to us and how romantic it was, thank you. It went exactly as I imagined. We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special and personal.” Amy & Simon
“It meant so much to have someone interested, enthusiastic, friendly and genuinely involved. Everyone should have an awesome celebrant like you!” Ellie and Briony
“Absolutely magical! Just what we wanted.” Jules and Lucy
“Barbara did an absolutely amazing job conducting our wedding ceremony. Thank you, Barbara, so much for making our wedding as fantastic as it could be and a wonderful transition into our new lives!” James and Jessie
“Thank you so much for helping to give us a wonderful wedding day and many memories to treasure forever.” Mark, Alice and Cerise
“We received so many compliments on how personal, funny and thoughtful the ceremony was, which was hugely due to the way you wove our wishes together. It was lovely to work with you and perhaps – if we’re lucky, you will be the celebrant at our future children’s naming ceremonies! All our love x Herzliche Grusse.” Rachel and Jan
