Here to Eternity Ceremonies

Celebrant Anne-Marie

Hi, I’m Anne-Marie…

I’m an Independent Family Celebrant based in York. As a celebrant it’s my role and privilege to create and deliver a truly personalised ceremony just for you – whatever life event you are marking.

Whether you are celebrating your wedding, welcoming a new person into your family or saying goodbye to a much-loved family member, I will make sure that your ceremony will be truly personal and special, just what you wish it to be. At this significant time in your life I will listen to your ideas and wishes for your ceremony and help you to make them a reality.

I have a wealth of experience working with people in many settings, including at difficult and emotional times. I pride myself on being able to understand people and their individual circumstances. My writing skills will allow me to create a distinctive personalised ceremony and my experience of public speaking will enable me to deliver a memorable ceremony especially for you.

Vow Renewals

A renewal of vows ceremony is an ideal way to renew your commitment to each other, first made at your wedding or civil partnership ceremony, and to declare your love again in the presence of your family and friends.

It is traditional across the world to welcome a new child into the family and community. Various religions and cultures have different ways of doing this, but many people are now choosing to create a naming ceremony to welcome a new family member.

Everyone is unique and a funeral ceremony can reflect this by focusing on the person who has died rather than following a set format or standard service. You will choose what you wish to include and how you would like to say your final farewell.

Customising Your Ceremony

Choose every element of your ceremony and make it unique

One of the great things about working with a celebrant is the freedom you have to choose the content, style and location of your ceremony. Your ceremony can be secular, semi-religious or spiritual. It can be traditional, culturally significant or alternative. You may wish to enhance your ceremony with a symbolic act, for example using candles, sand or flowers. You may have a favourite poem or song you wish to use. The choice is yours.

You might have plenty of ideas already, or perhaps you need a little inspiration. I’m always happy to provide suggestions about the wide variety of options available to enrich your ceremony, including readings, poetry, music and symbolic acts.

I’m sure you have lots of questions, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

Get in Touch

Whichever type of ceremony you’re planning, I’d be delighted to help. Feel free to get in touch any time for an informal chat through your ideas.
