I promise you a wonderful wedding ceremony that will be authentic, joyful and meaningful. It will feel just right for you and will celebrate your relationship perfectly. Planning the ceremony will be a fun, joint experience and on the day you'll be able to relax, because I'll be looking after you and your guests. You can relax, knowing you've got a wedding ceremony that you love, delivered with confidence by me. Your wedding ceremony will be a memory you will treasure for years to come.
I am a friendly, imaginative and experienced celebrant. I offer original and bespoke weddings, commitment ceremonies and renewals of vows.
Every wedding I write is different: prepared and written just for you and unlike anyone else's. So whatever your ideas for the day, whatever style and vibe you want, I'll create your perfect ceremony. Symbolic rituals like handfasting, or a unity candle, as well as any readings or music from any tradition or genre can all be included. I'll suggest new ideas, which you are free to go with - or not! It's entirely up to you.
I'm equally comfortable with small, intimate ceremonies and large, formal occasions. I love family-friendly weddings and will happily include your friends, relatives and even your pets in the ceremony. If you or any of your wedding party is worried about making a speech, my background is presentation skills training and PR, so I can help with that too. I'm practical and I think about the details and what works well, together with your hopes and dreams for your special day.
Feel free to contact me for a chat about your special day. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Alicen
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the first steps to booking you as our celebrant?
As soon as you know your wedding date, get in touch with me to reserve the date. The advantage of booking early is that you can relax, knowing that your date is secure. You will also find it easier to decide on what you want for your ceremony, if we have more time. If you don't have that luxury, don't worry!
What is the best way to choose a celebrant?
I think having a good rapport and feeling confident in your celebrant are the key factors. When we meet or speak on the phone, you should get a clear sense of the kind of person I am. I will listen to your hopes and any concerns, so I can help you achieve the wedding you are hoping for.
What is included in your fee?
The entire ceremony, starting from our first conversation, to the moment I say congratulations are included. I never charge for extra rituals or ceremonies e.g. handfasting or unity candle because in my view, they're intrinsic to your wedding ceremony. You can contact me as much as you like in the run-up to your wedding. Looking after you and helping you to feel excited and unstressed is very important to me. I have very high professional standards. I'm totally transparent about finances - see my website www.beautifuldaycelebrant.com/weddings for what's included.
Do we need to have ideas for our wedding ceremony, or can you help us decide what we want?
Sometimes I start with a completely blank canvas and at other times, couples have their own ideas. I take any thoughts and ideas you have and build a ceremony around them. I also ask lots of questions about you, so I get to know you and your likes and dislikes. My aim is to make the planning stage fun, inspiring and relaxed. I will offer you lots of choices and suggestions, and I encourage you to go with whichever ones feel right. I want you to feel excited and confident about your wedding ceremony. It should fit you perfectly and make you feel great - just like your wedding outfit.
Can we have our ceremony anywhere?
Yes, literally anywhere. It's only the legal part of the marriage that needs to be in a registry office or licensed venue. Your bespoke wedding ceremony can take place anywhere that you love or is special to you, e.g. a garden, hotel, stately home, cottage, field, boat, castle (ruined or not), fairground, beach, restaurant, London Eye, hot air balloon .... you get the idea!! I feel I'm gradually experiencing all the options so I can advise you of the practical considerations.

Alicen is incredible
We loved working with Alicen! She is just the best celebrant ever. We choose her because she really took time to get to know us, our personalities, our cultures and our vision for the message we wanted to deliver during the ceremony. And she was so nice in accommodating when we had to postpone due to COVID. Everyone said the ceremony was so fun and emotional at the same time, we loved it. 10000% recommend!Sent on 20/09/2021

Alicen is a superstar
Alicen lead our commitment ceremony last month and it turned out to be everything and more that we had hoped it would be. It was the best, happiest day with laughter and romance - a perfect balance two families became one. Thanks AlicenSent on 15/09/2019
