The Joy of Going Civil…

Getting married these days can be a bit of a minefield. Rules and regulations everywhere, right?! But not with a civil ceremony! By its very nature, a civil ceremony celebration gives you the absolute freedom to have your day, your way. No restrictions on times, locations, and most importantly, ceremony content. The power to put together an entirely unique and very personal celebration of your love…

Our Services


Embrace the freedom that a civil ceremony brings with a bespoke wedding or commitment ceremony. Include a Hand Fasting or Unity Candle and/or include your own ideas, too. Pretty much anything is possible when you go civil.

Baby Naming

Welcome to the family, baby! Baby Namings – or Baby Blessings – are the perfect way to present your little bundle of joy to your nearest and dearest, whilst you and your baby’s supporting adults make your life promises to your little one(s).


The stuff dreams are made of. Many years down the line, still side by side and still proclaiming those three little words, loud and proud. A Renewal Of Vows is a beautiful occasion and a great excuse to bring family together in the name of love.

Thanks so much to Jill from Civil Celebrations, her ceremony was the icing on the cake (pun intended!). She conducted the ceremony in both English and Spanish, thereby creating a vital link between our families and friends, in the most special moment of our lives. She combined professionalism and humour at just the right moment and kept me going when the tears wouldn’t stop flowing. Both myself and Lourdes will be eternally grateful for all your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm in making our wedding wonderful, If you are looking for a wedding celebrant then Jill’s your woman. As Dennis Edwards said,”Don’t look any further!”

Colin & Lourdes

Jillian I can’t thank you enough for being our celebrant. You were an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. Everyone was completely blown away by you and the ceremony itself and they continue to tell us so. I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect, wonderful, warm, heartfelt and tailor made service. You captured everything that made us ‘us’ and turned it into the most beautiful (and hilarious) ceremony. You made us laugh, you made us cry & you made us married! THANK YOU Xx

Dave & Julie
