Congratulations on your engagement.
A big hello from me, Nikki, otherwise known as Costa Celebrant.
I would love to help you create a fabulous, unique ceremony for your special day.
I am a professional, independent Celebrant who works in South East England and southern Spain. Whether you are planning to get married, renewing your vows, celebrating a special anniversary or marking one of life’s milestones, I will work closely with you to handwrite and deliver a unique and beautiful ceremony to reflect your happiness, your love story and your relationship.
As an independent Celebrant, together we can organise your ceremony wherever you want it to be at a time to suit you. In the garden, your favourite hotel, woodland or a beach? Everywhere is possible! Sunrise, sunset or middle of the day – let’s do it!
I live between the south of England and southern Spain and can guide and help you to find trusted, excellent suppliers to create your special days.
I trained with the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants and the Institute of Professional Celebrants to write and conduct both wedding and funeral ceremonies. I hold fully comprehensive insurance.
My couple testimonials show how, when starting each and every ceremony as a blank page, your beautiful handwritten ceremony will be remembered for its uniqueness, sincerity and it will be a true celebration of your individual love story. I am a memory catcher, I want to hear your story and writing is my passion. I use your interests, likes, literature, song lyrics and quotations to guide me and which are intertwined within your ceremony – with you in the driving seat. Once I write the first draft, You are in the metaphorical driving seat with me by your side to guide you and suggest personal touches, rituals and elements that will make it 100% yours.
My approach is wholly inclusive, I was one of the founding members of the ‘LGBTQ Equality Weddings’ community and celebrate your unique story.
I truly believe that I have the best job in the world!
Whatever type of ceremony you would like, be it semi-religious, spiritual or non-religious, I will work with you to create a ceremony to reflect your individual values and beliefs. Once I have read your story, I delight in being able to suggest and create bespoke rituals alongside offering the more traditional rituals of handfasting (tie the knot!), sand unity ceremony etc. During the planning process, through the use of a 3 way WhatsApp group, and during video calls, meetings and so on, we get to know each other and I help you ensure that every element of your ceremony is perfectly planned. I promise to deliver your ceremony with style, humour, panache and love.
The first funeral I conducted was a celebration of the life of my Father, the hardest thing to do. Using my experience as a Celebrant, I am honoured to work with both families and individuals during times of great sadness. I know that families often find it hard to find the words they need to celebrate and honour the life of their loved one. As a Professional Celebrant, I can help by writing and delivering a truly heartfelt eulogy that can be delivered with the tone you prefer be that uplifting or solemn. I suggest specially chosen readings, read by either members of the family, friends or myself. By working closely with you, the family, we can discuss how you would like the ceremony to run. In creating a caring and unique farewell, I hope to support families and friends in saying their final goodbyes.
I also offer: vow renewals, elopements, naming ceremonies, commitment ceremonies, civil partnership ceremonies, memorials and celebration of life.
