Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage!  

What would you like to see, say and do in your totally unique wedding or renewal of vows ceremony? Is it:

  • The opportunity to say exactly what you would like to each other – both in your individual wedding vows and in the words, readings and music of your wedding or renewal of vows ceremony?
  • The ability to ensure your wedding day is comfortable, personal, fun, happy, and relaxing for everyone by holding your wedding ceremony in the same place as your reception – be that family garden, historic barn, country farm, gorgeous hotel, Thames cruiser, park lawn, or any other venue of your choice: indoors or outdoors, and at any time – morning, lunchtime, afternoon or evening?
  • The opportunity to be creative about your whole wedding day, so it uniquely reflects you both?

The joy of a humanist wedding ceremony, whether large or intimate, is that we can say exactly what you would like us to say. I will share my ideas with yours to ensure your unique and special non-religious humanist wedding ceremony is crafted entirely around:

  • What does marriage mean to you?
  • Why do you want to marry this person now?
  • How did you meet and what do you love about this particular person?
  • What music and poems are special for you both?
  • Who else do you want to involve (friends, family, children) in taking part in the ceremony?
  • What promises do you personally want to make to each other?
  • Are there any cultural symbolic acts (such as lighting a candle, giving each other garlands or sweets, breaking a glass under foot, walking round a fire, toasts) which you wish to include in the ceremony?

Please call me on 01895 632096, email on, suggest a date to Zoom with me, or click here, and we can discuss how I can help you to hold your perfect humanist wedding ceremony anywhere in London, Middx, Berks, Bucks, Herts or Surrey, plus I am happy to travel with you on the Eurostar to Paris!

Examples of the many cards and emails I have been pleased to receive after previous weddings:

“The moment we met you, we knew that you were exactly the right person to officiate our wedding. Your kindness and warmth are palpable, and you bring a certain gravitas to your words that mark the importance of the ceremony. You took the time to get to know us both, and helped guide us through the process of writing a ceremony that was perfect. There was humour, there was solemnity, and most of all, there was love. We could never have gotten that from anyone but you – you really managed to get the best out of us, and in turn gave the best of yourself. We can’t thank you enough.” Tiff and Rob

“We wanted to say a big thank you for being our humanist celebrant.  We had such a special and magical ceremony and we were so pleased with how it went.  Many of our guests said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been to!  Thank you so much for helping us bring it all together and for your heartfelt and professional delivery.” Jess and Rich

“Thank you Hilary. Our Renewal of Vows ceremony and the whole day was beautiful and very emotional. You were very good and everyone commented on the fact that you had a lot of emotion and it wasn’t just another ceremony for you.” Nisha and Tom

“We wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so special. We both found it a wonderful experience and enjoyed every minute (nerves aside!). Many of our guests commented on how personal and original the ceremony was, and it apparently brought a few tears to a few eyes!” Alison and Martin

“We cannot thank you enough for making our special day so wonderful. Your energy and enthusiasm during the ceremony made it mean even more to us than we could have dreamed. It really was perfect! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” James and Kristen

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Sunday. The ceremony was perfect and it was everything we could have hoped for. Thank you for all your hard work and for making our day so, so special.” Michelle and Ryan

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again for the incredible ceremony on Friday afternoon! We truly appreciated your help and support throughout the planning process and for delivering such a clear and concise ceremony.  We had numerous guests comment on how incredible the ceremony was and how amazing you were at explaining everything throughout the ceremony and leading such an interesting and clear script.  Thank you for the bottom of our hearts for being such an important part of our day, Nick and I will have such amazing memories because of you! Thank you so much again!” Karen and Nick
