A smile is the universal welcome.
Max Eastman

Hello and Welcome,

First of all congratulations, if you’re reading this you must be planning something really exciting.

Are you looking for a warm, bubbly, enthusiastic, colourful, creative, kind, caring, smiley Celebrant to help you mark your special occasion?

If so, look no further.

I am based in Midhurst, West Sussex and cover Surrey, Kent, Dorset, Somerset and the Isle of Wight.

My passion is working with couples and families to ensure the ceremony you are planning is exactly as you dreamed.
With no restrictions on location or time of day you can let your imagination run wild.

A wedding ceremony as unique as you are

The beauty of a Celebrant led wedding is your choice of ‘venue’ does not have to be licensed to hold weddings. How exciting is that? You have complete freedom of choice.

Do you dream of a ceremony held in a beautiful woodland glade, with bird song as your music? A favourite beach and the sound of waves? yours or your families garden, on a farm, or even a museum. Or There might be somewhere that invokes happy childhood memories.

Are you early birds? Have you considered a sunrise ceremony? There’s no backdrop as beautiful and romantic as the rising of the sun. Or imagine ending your special day with a twilight ceremony as the sun is setting and the first stars appear. You get the picture…Anything goes! 

I will work alongside you to create a unique, joyous ceremony that will be remembered forever.

Hi, I’m Rachael

I can help you make your day extra special. After all, you can’t have your ceremony without me.

My style is professional, relaxed and fun, as well as being tailored to you. There’s absolutely no need for the pre-ceremony jitters, I will soon put you at ease. I am committed to ensuring your ceremony is stress-free, fun and memorable. If family and friends are involved in your ceremony I always touch base with them beforehand to make sure they are comfortable and confident.

As an added bonus I’m extremely dog-friendly and know how much a part of the family they become. I would be delighted if you want them to be a part of your celebrations. they’ll love the attention, super cute for the photos too.

Planning Something Else?

The core of any celebration is the people you are with and the event itself.

Whether it be coming of age, successes and achievements, retirement, renewal of vows or celebrating the life of a loved one, I can help you to celebrate meaningfully and with gusto leaving you free to kick up your heels, let down your hair and enjoy the occasion.

‘Share, care, love and celebrate every moment of life’

Renewal of Vows

You can once more promise eternal love and faithfulness to one another in a vow renewal ceremony. The strengthening of bonds and your commitment to your relationship is reaffirming and commemorative.

I would love to work alongside you to help celebrate your journey together, I can retell your story in the company of family and friends, or you may prefer a more private romantic ceremony just for the two of you.

Love is the bridge between everything, embrace it and share.

Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a perfect alternative to a christening. Many parents feel that a traditional church service is not really for them as they don’t hold religious beliefs.

A child can be any age to be part of a naming ceremony. You could also hold one to celebrate step or adopted children becoming part of the family, there are no rules and the ceremony doesn’t have to follow any set pattern.

It’s all about creating a memorable fun ceremony that fits you and your family.


Losing someone you love is one of the worst things a person can experience. Getting through the loss takes time and everyone’s journey is unique.

A funeral helps us to acknowledge our grief and gives us the chance to make our farewells, but the tone is changing with the focus becoming more of a celebration of life rather than mourning.

I can help you with meaningful, well-placed words. We can create an unforgettable ceremony to give your loved one the send-off they deserve.

I have so many ideas to help make your day stand out.
Get in touch, let’s see how I can help you.
