Welcome to Vows that Wow

ABOUT MICHAEL.

I am friendly, professional and accessible. and passionate about working with you to create the ceremony of your dreams.

Welcome! You’re here because you’re planning to celebrate a life-cycle event such as a wedding, vow renewal, ring-blessing, handfasting, baby-naming, or even a funeral. You are surely looking for a truly memorable and meaningful ceremony for your big day. Then you’ve come to the right place!

I take pleasure and pride in crafting a unique, bespoke ceremony together with you – a ceremony which will be just the way you want it – so, the religious element, the ritual content, the participants, the readings and music are all down to you.

I’ll be happy to make suggestions and give you ideas, and once you’ve chosen your framework, I’ll propose draft ceremonies that you are free to amend. On the day, you will know exactly what to expect and you can relax and enjoy yourselves. You’ll be confident you are in good hands.

CIVIL WEDDING

As celebrant, my passion is to work closely with you to create a truly personal, bespoke wedding or commitment ceremony.

VOW RENEWALS

Many choose to celebrate a special wedding anniversary (usually, one ending in 5 or 0) with a Renewal of Marriage Vows Ceremony.

CIVIL FUNERALS

It is never easy dealing with the death of a loved one. Apart from your own grief, you have a lot of practicalities to deal with suddenly. This is where I help.

“Michael was the perfect choice for us. He had lots of great ideas and was happy to adapt them to our personal needs. We would highly recommend Michael’s services as he made us a very happy couple!”
