I Love Words And The Power That They Hold.

When it comes to planning a wedding, every detail matters. From choosing the perfect venue to curating a guest list that reflects your closest relationships, each decision contributes to creating a memorable day that resonates with your unique love story.

Amidst all these choices, the role of a wedding celebrant stands out at the heart and soul of your ceremony.

Anna Bowen is a wedding officiant in Dorset, England, providing bespoke ceremonies to help you create unforgettable memories on your special day.

I studied at Music College, with aspirations of becoming a famous rock star! However, the entrepreneurial side of me always kept me grounded, and I became a qualified accountant working predominately in senior finance roles within education and training. I love to coach, mentor, and inspire others. It’s who I am!

Unlike your usual accountant, I am a very creative person, and I love to bring this into the ceremonies I lead. I also have a great sense of humour, a passion for saving the planet, and a belief in equality and diversity in all aspects of life.

Throughout my career, I have always loved public speaking, so working as a celebrant is not just a job for me, it’s my passion.

I would love to be a part of your special day, and while I am based in Weymouth, I cover most of Dorset and the surrounding areas.

Super organised, great Celebrant !

Anna worked with us recently and our ceremony turned out to be everything we hoped it would be and more. The words she said made the whole thing just the best day and she had lots of ideas of how to involve other members of the family (which we would never have thought of). Great service, lovely lady, best celebrant!

Professional, Warm and Honest

Sincere, professional and trustworthy is
exactly what Anna delivered. She made the effort to understand what we wanted and wrote a beautiful, sincere service that totally reflected our journey.

Our guests all commented on how personal, sincere, touching and funny our service was. Anna had a total understanding of the proceedings from the moment she arrived to the moment she left.

Amazing LGBT Friendly Celebrant

We got married at short notice so everything had to be organised quite quickly. Anna was truly amazing, so organised and friendly - she really went above and beyond and included all the things we wanted and some humour! She really made our day feel so special and we can't thank her enough for her prompt professionalism and heartfelt delivery. Thank you Anna!

A wedding with a story

Anna made our wedding personal and special, we met ups and she asked us all sorts of questions about how we met and our history, why we were getting married and it was all quite unexpected. I'd been to quite a few friends weddings and there are readings and poems and a few funny anecdotes but they are usually much the same sort of format. Anna put together our story and told it in a most entertaining and lovely way so all present could know our story and everyone got good few laughs including us. It made it all the more special than we already thought things would be and we had several people come up to us later and say that she was so much better than their celebrants so we can most certainly say that she comes highly recommended :)
Thanks again Anna x

Anna is Amazing - Best decision we made for our wedding!

We were so fortunate that our friends introduced us to Anna, to help with our, ‘Once in a Lifetime’ important day. Anna is such a lovely person, easy to talk to, very friendly and is always so positive. She made us feel very comfortable and at ease at all times. We had a lot of fun and laughter together and she was always very professional, highly organised and full of ideas! Anna listened to us and understood our feelings about our wedding. The result was, that she managed to bring our story to life and our family and guests loved the ceremony, as did we. I highly recommend Anna for your ceremony- she makes everything so much more personal and took all the stress away from us, ensuring our day was just as we wanted it … Perfect!

Professional service

Anna was not only very personable, but very professional. She couldn't do enough to make our day so very special. She had alot of ideas of what to include in our ceremony and she suggested readings and poems (which I would never have thought of) and she went out of her way to ensure that the who process was stress free. She is such a lovely lady and great to work with. You will not be disappointed if she acts as your celebrant. Thank you Anna!!
