As the owner of a successful wedding planning company, I have helped countless couples get married and my Company - Carmela Weddings - quickly became known as the wedding planning company that doesn’t believe in ‘wedding rules’. I truly believe that getting married is such a personal and unique day to you that you should never hear the phrase “on your wedding day you’re supposed to…” or force traditions that just don’t work for you.
Having planned so many different wedding ceremonies that really were completely bespoke, it became more and more important to me that couples also got to hear a ceremony that is all about them and their story and that they have the opportunity to say their promises to each other in their own way. When I got married, my Husband and I wrote our ceremony together and becoming a celebrant felt like a natural progression for me.
I love writing and have had several articles about weddings published in National and local wedding magazines and blogs. As a trained actress and television presenter, I’m confident at public speaking and am able to use all of my training now to design and deliver your perfect ceremony. Whether you wish to include your religions, cultures or whether you are not religious at all, the right ceremony can be designed to fit your personal circumstances and that’s what I love about being a celebrant – the diversity and the uniqueness.
As the mother of pre-school twin sons, I also know just how important it is for every family when they are choosing the right person to deliver their children’s naming ceremony and I truly love that I can be part of such a special occasion. I take the time to listen to you and hear your stories so that your day is true to you and your family.
Whether you are celebrating new life, the joining of two people in marriage or renewing your vows, I’d love to meet you and hear how I can help.
