About Elizabeth Donnelly

Elizabeth Donnelly

My name is Elizabeth Donnelly and I am accredited as a non-religious Funerals, Weddings and Namings Celebrant.  I live in Wimbledon, London and conduct ceremonies across London, Surrey and Hampshire. I also travel further afield, including overseas, if you wish me to be your celebrant.

Every humanist ceremony, whether a funeral, wedding or naming, has a personal tribute at its heart: the birth and first months of a new baby at a Naming Ceremony; how a couple met and fell in love at a Wedding; and the life of the person who has died at a Funeral.

All of the ceremonies are unique, special and specifically tailored to your needs, and I will work closely with you and your family to write the perfect, personal ceremony for you.

It is important to find the right ceremony – and indeed, the right celebrant – for you. There is more detailed information on the pages of this site but if you would like to ask any further questions please do contact me.

Check my calendar to see if I’m free for your dates:

Legal recognition of humanist weddings

Elizabeth and coupleThe Government has announced that the Law Commission has already begun an initial scoping exercise into marriage law in England and Wales, with specific attention paid to the decision over whether to give legal recognition to humanist weddings. The Commission reported in December 2015, saying that further work is needed. The BHA continues to campaign for legal recognition of humanist weddings and will keep me updated.
