Hello there! I’m Yvonne, a Bilingual Wedding Celebrant, offering wedding, elopement and vow renewal ceremonies for all couples, in England and Germany,  and beyond. It is really lovely to meet you!  It means a lot to me that you are here, and I hope you will soon realise how much I would love to be able to help you with your wedding ceremony plans.  It really is the heart of your day, and if you are looking for a personal, inclusive and sincere, fun, warmhearted and passionate Celebrant then you’re in the right place. 

If you dream of a Wedding Ceremony filled with love and laughter, storytelling and meaning, and which truly represents you both in respect of your beliefs and values,  then you have found someone who will be there for you 100%, get to know you, and take every step with you.  I promise,  by choosing me as your Celebrant, whether your Ceremony is in England, Europe or beyond,  in English or in German;  your dreams,  and your ceremony will be in safe hands.

You are taking a step forward in such an exciting time in your lives, and I am so glad you have decided to have a ceremony that really does have meaning for you, and has your authentic voice and personality.  A Celebrant led Celebration is going to be totally unforgettable,  as you will see from the weddings on my Real Weddings and Elopements page here, as it will be filled with your ideas, representing your style, and stand for everything you value.  This is a truly magical moment in your lives,  offering a deeper and richer meaning, and the happiest of memories for you and your guests! 

Having created over 300 wedding ceremonies for couples since 2011 when I first began as a Wedding Celebrant,  each and every one was totally unique, and so very special.  Whatever you dreamed of for your ceremony, it really can come true. 

Every love story is unique, and therefore deserves to be celebrated as such, without restrictions on content, format, time, location and time of day, and offer the freedom to express yourself however you choose.  Don’t want to exchange rings?  Then don’t.  Want to be traditional but incorporate modern ideas?  My creativity and experience is ther to support you.  I am a firm believer in equality, in Marriage as well as in everyday life,  and that every couple should be able to celebrate their relationship and commitment to each other in any way they choose!

We would highly recommend Yvonne as a wedding celebrant. It is such an important thing to get right and we were so delighted that someone had recommended Yvonne to us. She instantly put us at ease with her friendly emails and relaxed telephone conversations which allowed Yvonne to get an idea of the sort of people we were and what kind of ceremony we were hoping for. She was in regular contact and really seemed to care that we had a ceremony that fitted us as a couple. We felt that the service that Yvonne provides is excellent value for money and we feel lucky that we have some wonderful memories of our day thanks to Yvonne.  Eleanor and Sam.

Yvonne is a superb Celebrant who did a fantastic job with our wedding in June 2019 in London. She was extremely organised beforehand, giving us lots of chances to review the script and lots of good advice. On the day she was great at delivering the words we had chosen together, and spoke very clearly and with warmth. She has a happy presence, and very professional, and put us all at ease, making it much easier than it could have been! We would have no hesitation in recommendng her! John and Julie.

It’s really important to me that you have that choice, and that your ceremony contains your voice, and your personality. It’s also important to me, that everyone has the chance to celebrate their relationship in the way they wish, irrespective of their lifestyle.  Pop over to my “What Can a Celebrant do?” page for more detailed information about how I can help, and hopefully get a little more inspiration! Oh and do check out my Top Tips for a Stress Free Ceremony page where I share my suggestions and advice, based on my 11 years experience as a Wedding Celebrant! 

And don’t forget that I can help you with many more aspects of your ceremony, to guide and support you on this special occasion, so get in touch to find out more, and let’s just talk about your plans, and get to know one another a little.  Then, if you’d like to book, we can take things from there.

Yvonne was truly a wonderful person to perform our ceremony. She took the time to meet with us, understand what we were about and showed passion in wanting to deliver a meaningful, bespoke ceremony for us, which she did 100%. She was open to adapting to us, using terminology that she may have not have been familiar with to personalise our ceremony but she embraced it all and brought the best smiles and laughter to our guests as well as ourselves. She gave us the relaxed vibe that we wanted but maintained professionalism. She brought personality to our union and we could not be happier with her. She was great from the very beginning. She took the time to have a phone interview, meet in person, was patient with our responses, flexible and was on time on the day. We thank you Yvonne for a truly amazing ceremony.Love Lerum and Shereena

My own Celebrant journey began in 2003 when I was invited to attend a friend’s wedding in Australia, and was blown away by her totally personalised Ceremony, not just the location, but also the format and content.  I really loved the freedom they had to express themselves authentically, and when asked if I would like to speak to their Celebrant, I was excited and curious!  I was totally enchanted with the role : blending stories with rituals and creating magic and memories!  In 2011, I stepped back from a long career in public service, and began building my career as a Family and Marriage Celebrant.  I completed my Training in May 2011, and became a member of  the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.

I am both excited and proud to have have been asked to create and deliver over 300 ceremonies for amazing couples!  Life offers so many possibilities, and since moving to Germany in 2017 with my husband, I have been able to celebrate Weddings, Elopements and Vow Renewals, both in the UK as well as in beautiful locations in Europe. 

German was my mother’s language, but it was only following our move to Berlin in 2017 that I began offering ceremonies in both English and German, or incoroporate German traditions, quotes and poetry into the ceremony, and love how inclusive and special this makes everyone feel.  I am also happy to offer my Celebrant services throughout Europe – where there are so many magical places to hold your beautiful ceremony!   

Thank you so much again for the wonderful ceremony, you made our day really special and the way you performed the ceremony was just perfect. We’ve had so many positive comments from our family and friends, both English and German – it felt very personal and was exactly how we imagined our wedding to be like.  Tami and Sam, Bilingual Wedding
