Hello, my name is Yvonne Beck, and welcome to my page! I guess you are thinking about your wedding, so congratulations if you have just got engaged, or are thinking about having a more personal ceremony that’s full of meaning and represents you and your beliefs and values, and tells your story.
I love working with couples and families to create warm, loving and sincere personally tailored Wedding, Vow Renewal and Naming Ceremonies that can be held almost anywhere, in licensed and unlicensed venues!
I have just been shortlisted as a 2018 Regional Finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards, and am very proud and excited that many of the couples for whom I created and conducted ceremonies, voted for me in my first year of entering these Awards. My grateful thanks go out to all of you – you know who you are! 🙂
I am also very excited and proud that one of my recent wedding ceremonies has just been the subject of a Blog on the fabulous Rock My Wedding Website, which you can read here
So, how and why did I decide to become a Wedding Celebrant?
After being a guest at a Celebrant-led wedding in Australia, and marvelling at what a truly personalised Ceremony can feel and look like, I decided on a career change and trained as a Marriage and Family Celebrant with the UK College of Celebrancy in 2011.
For the past 6 years I’ve had the pleasure of creating and delivering over 100 indoor and outdoor wedding celebrations and marriage ceremonies in some of the most beautiful locations and venues in London, Greater London, and the gorgeous surrounding English counties! I cover the South East too, and have conducted wedding ceremonies in Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Middlesex, as well as Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Essex.
Creating your unique wedding ceremony with you to celebrate your Wedding Day is a real privilege and a joy! Hiring a Celebrant for your Wedding means there are simply no restrictions on your ideas and your ceremony is totally tailored to include your values and beliefs. It’s just all about you and allows you total freedom and flexibility in one of the most important ceremonies you will take part in.
You’re marrying your best friend, with your loved ones as your witnesses. It’s a uniquely special moment where you’re expressing your love and commitment to each other. Sometimes in the frenzy of wedding planning, it is easy to forget about yourselves, and what you might want in your actual ceremony but that’s exactly where I can help you!
Working together, I will write a ceremony created just for you and your partner which will delight your guests, and create wonderful lasting memories! I can include religious or cultural content and blessings – it really will be “Your Day, your way!”
We can also involve your guests in the Ceremony, holding a Ring Warming Ceremony where they each hold your rings for a moment and “warm” them with their love and good wishes for your future. It really is adorable!
We can include children too, giving them gifts to exchange or perhaps involve them and your immediate family members in a Sand or Candle Ceremony that symbolises the blending and unity of you as a family. Take a look at my Blog Page to find out more!
Many couples believe their Celebrant led ceremony is their “true” wedding day as it’s created exclusively for them. They will generally register their marriage at their local Registry Office, with just two witnesses and make the 32 contracting and declaratory words that legalise marriage. You don’t need to exchange rings, and many couples save that until they hold their personalised ceremony at a time and place and date that suits them – at home, in a park, on a beach or licenced venue, manor house, vineyard, woodland area and gives them total freedom and flexiblity.
If you’re looking for a wedding ceremony that’s created exclusively for you and contains all the elements, themes and ideas you’ve dreamed of for your wedding day, then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
*BREAKING NEWS* I’m very excited to share my news that I can now offer personalised wedding ceremonies for couples seeking a “destination wedding” or perhaps even an Elopement, in Berlin and particularly utilising the beautiful romantic outdoor parks and castles of Potsdam! Take a look at some of the beautiful locations you could choose!
As a native German speaker I can create ceremonies in both English and German or a mixture of these two languages, giving you lots of opportunities to include new customs and readings and make your ceremony extra special! Please contact me for more details!
