Celebrate your love


Commitment Ceremony

Vow renewal

A Commitment Ceremony celebrates your relationship, love and commitment to each other, without a legal marriage or legal civil partnership.

An opportunity to declare your commitment and dedication to each other, it’s considered an alternative to a traditional wedding ceremony, typically chosen by couples who are either not legally able to marry or who prefer not to marry for personal reasons.

I’m an independent, qualified celebrant based in Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast, covering the surrounding areas.

What would make your ceremony perfect? Do you want to include something unique? As a fully-qualified celebrant the ceremonies that I conduct are professional and very flexible. The ceremony can include anything you like, such as promises and the exchange of rings. Take a look at the symbolic/special elements page for ideas.

A Commitment Ceremony is a wonderful declaration of love and commitment. It can be in front of your family and friends or a private ceremony for just the two of you. Hold it wherever you like, whether it’s at home, a hotel, in woodland or on the beach, the possibilities really are endless. As a fully qualified, independent celebrant, I will discover what will make the perfect ceremony for you and then plan and deliver it. It’s your day – let’s do it your way!

What will you choose?

Will it be a fairy-tale, romantic, fun, a particular theme or steampunk? Whatever you want, it can be done. Vows, music, poems, readings, special elements and symbolic actions of your love and commitment can all be included. You can also sign a commemorative certificate, which will be presented in a souvenir folder with a copy of your ceremony.

All my ceremonies are very flexible to give you exactly what you want. If you have any questions or need further information, feel free to ask!
