Wedding Ceremony – The Wool Barn, Frampton Court

Rosalind calmly delivered a seamless fusion of two cultures, having studied Iranian wedding customs, and even learnt a little Farsi.  She was an indispensable figure.

Wedding Celebrant in Bristol & beyond

In the video, National Celebrant Award Runner Up, Rosalind is in conversation with Becca from the B Word at Bristol’s Fake Wedding Fair.  

More couples are choosing to use a celebrant for their wedding ceremony. Here are some of their reasons why:

Guidance

“I appreciated the guidance from our celebrant. Like an architect she helped us design our wedding as if designing our own home. We then filled each room with individuality and entertainment.”
– Andy, Bristol

Rosalind Love, Rosalind Love, Wedding Ceremony, Bristol

Choice and freedom

“I love organising and couldn’t wait to start on our wedding. The biggest shock was the ‘wedding rules’ – at each turn I was told that I couldn’t do what we wanted. A celebrant meant that we had choices.”
– Lisa, Durham

Rosalind Love, Wedding Ceremony, North Somerset

Meaningful ceremony

“I’m not religious and we didn’t want the hurried, business-like approach of a Registry Office.  A celebrant offered us a meaningful wedding ceremony in which our guests could actively participate”.
– Laura, Bristol

Rosalind Love, Wedding Ceremony, Bristol

Wonder what it’s like working with Rosalind?

“We are both so glad we took the leap into the unknown and, with Rosalind’s guidance, created something so different.

My guests say that it was the best wedding they’ve been to and many a grown man was brought to tears by the moving script.”

Cost

Rosalind Love, Wedding Ceremony, Bristol

If your Wedding Ceremony is within 30 minutes drive time from my home in east Bristol, this package costs £625 (an additional charge may be made if your ceremony is further afield due to the extra time needed).

If your Ceremony venue operates as a charity or social enterprise, I will donate them 5% of this fee. Recent beneficiaries have been Doynton Village Hall, Redcatch Community Garden, Arnos Vale Cemetery, and Batheaston Village Hall.

This includes travel within the city of Bristol. Beyond Bristol I will charge for travel and will keep these costs to a minimum.

A ceremony rehearsal can be arranged at an extra cost.

Legalities

Please note that you will need to undertake your Legal Marriage as a separate arrangement.

This can be done cheaply at your local Registry Office.

We can discuss this when we meet.
